Posted on 06/03/2007 10:23:58 PM PDT by TaxPayer2000
Just when the dust was beginning to settle following President Bush's latest assault on common sense, in which he accused conservatives of "spreading fear" by being honest about amnesty, Senator John McCain decided that fear mongering was not such a bad tactic after all. In fact, McCain decided that fear mongering was essential in trying to sell his amnesty snake oil to a skeptical and increasingly suspicious public.
On June 2, McCain rolled out his fear-based defense of amnesty on the campaign trail in Le Mars, Iowa. Responding to a question about deportation of illegal aliens, McCain delivered the following dilly: "In case you hadn't noticed, the thousands of people who have been relegated to ghettos have risen up and burned cars in France,'' McCain said. "They've got huge problems in France. They have tremendous problems. The police can't even go into certain areas in the suburbs of Paris. I don't want that in the suburbs of America.''

That's part of the problem. These politicians really aren't scared of us. They know we are law-abiding and the illegals aren't!
Are the pro criminal alien Amnesty advocates still funding the direct line to the senators?
If they’d riot, then do we still have to think of them as hard-working and decent folk who just want to do the gardening and menial labor tasks that Americans won’t do?
“Hell, John, we aint French. “
Sad thing is that France now has a President who is ten times more balsy on this question than ours. A sad day when that happens.
So far the illegals have been peaceful in their rallies against immigration enforcement in my neck of the woods.
That’s ok, John.
There are those of us waiting for just that to happen.
We’ll handle it since you won’t.
“As GWB once said Bring It On.”
While I know he was talking about a different issue, it really sums up his stance on immigration doesn’t it?
Since when does a society stop enforcing it’s laws because the criminals may resort to anarchy?
Won’t kowtowing to illegal aliens who are flaunting our laws,because they may riot,just show other criminals how to escape punishment?
Won’t this cowardice on the part of those we pay to enact and enforce our laws, lead one by one to the forced dismantling of every law on the books?
Good. Let's get it on while we still outnumber them. We can counter-riot and do the job our government won't do. I believe we are better "equipped" than the illegals to do the job right!
I wish this idiot back-stabbing POG would go away.
We ain’t France. And in particular, the Mexicans aren’t MOSLEMS (hello, there’s a BIG difference!).
Hell, the Moslems in France aren’t even illegal!
Way off base, idiot jerk.
""Q: What is irredentism [ethnic nationalism], and what evidence do you see that it is happening?
Gutierrez:" The evidence is their display of their Mexicanness. These folks now are engaged in active political activity in the U.S. which is unprecedented. They are truly binational citizens.
It's not uncommon to see undocumented Mexicans protesting in front of INS in downtown Dallas. .They have also now gotten dual citizenship. [The] Chicano generation only wanted to carve out half of [19th-century Mexico] . These folks want it all. They want to recreate all of Mexico and join all of Mexico into one. And they are going to do that, even if it's just demographically They are going to have political sovereignty over the Southwest and many parts of the Midwest. "
"Jose Angel Gutierrez is not a madman. Gutierrez is a man who has dedicated his life to a cause. And he now senses triumph is at hand.
He's been doing this in George W. Bush's Texas, at a university for which Bush had ultimate responsibility."
WTH is Bush thinking???
It’s dangerously close to the point where we all raise our windows & stick our heads out & yell, “WE’RE MAD AS HELL AND WE’RE NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE!”
Once the bill passes, they will have legal standing and full protection of the US Government. Therefore, no law enforcement agency or citizen will be able to touch them under fear of federal prosecution.
They are an enemy to the Republic, and I am not making a mistake about that in any way, shape, or form.
Business and shop owners informed the Police Chief and Sheriff if the demonstrators broke so much as one shop window, it’d be met with gunfire from the owners from within the shops. My now deceased father-in-law was one of those armed shop owners. The two law officers informed the instigators, or demonstration coordinators, of the town’s intentions to protect and defend itself and strongly encouraged them to reconsider their choice of cities.
There was no demonstration, it was quietly “rescheduled” to another locale.
Okay let’s see American citizens vs. illegal alien rioters. Yeah, that’s going to be tough for a lot of politicians to choose which side they are on.
They wouldn’t want to hurt their “new” constituents.
In the weeks after Katrina there were several stories about neighborhood defense groups.
One story described a bunch of guys who were armed and serious, and had done things like rigging beer can “alarms” on the front porches on their block. The guys described one daytime encounter which had turned out very badly for the perpatrators.
And there also was the widely circulated photo of another group, showing about 20 middle-class neighborhood guys with their hardware and a huge warning sign telling looters to stay out or else. One would imagine that neighborhood stayed pretty safe.
Gee, I had no idea that enforcing the law should only be attempted only so long as the criminal doesn’t get mad about it.
Deport the workers and their families will follow.
Garde la Foi, mes amis! Nous nous sommes les sauveurs de la République! Maintenant et Toujours!

Law abiding citizens do not riot. McCain and his pansy bunch know that.
It’s really a sad state of the nation when elected “lawmakers” choose above all to defend alien lawbreakers, rioters, and looters over and in spite of the objections of law abiding citizens.
Washington is like the diseased heart of America and politicians are the parasites destroying that heart.
I think you meant to use the past tense.
A picture worth stealing. ;-)
More disgusting talk from a Senator. Same-ol-same-ol...
Let me correct that for you.
Law abiding citizens NORMALLY do not riot.
This could be the trigger that changes all that.
Shirley you jest. They will riot because they will blindly follow the incitements of their leftist activist leaders. They always do, especially if they're uneducated, restless and dissatisfied with their lot in life.
They're not soley here to "make money" although this is what they consciously think. The illegals are pawns. They're are here along with the connivance of various central and south american national leaders to invade and reconfigure this country and to get rid of riff-raff in their own countries.
Rioting will not "put an end" to the illegals (also legals) chances at income. Our authorities will look the other way. When tens of thousands take to the streets to demonstrate or destroy, what are the chances of lost income for more than a handful?
Besides, you're assuming that all rioters have "an income". Odds are that they DON'T have a steady income or are on welfare.....or have a government or social welfare job that allows them to take off from work whenever they want to take to the streets.
We freepers have seen these leeches demonstrating in DC many times.
The biggest danger is the fact that most people don't believe riotous demonstrations can happen any more.....or that the police can control them. They forget history, such as the Democrat convention riot in Chicago. Some heads were broken there, but PC won't allow that any more.
In short, we're at the mercy of rioters led by socialist leaders inciting the invading hordes.
And whose side are our peerless leaders such as Senator Mr. McGoo and the MSM taking?
Don't ask, don't tell.
And if they riot send in the national guard with orders to shoot back if fired upon. They think this is a third world country, then lets treat em the same as they would at home.
You come here illegally, and then threaten more illegal activity if you don’t get your way... screw that.
Not enforcing the law is going to lead to a civil war.
This is for the most part already the case.
THEN ENFORCE THE LAWS AND DEPORT THEM!!!!!!! This isn't France, these idiots start burning cars americans will shoot to protect their property we aren't unarmed pansies like France and and if the illegals shooting, Americans will shoot back.
The illegals might actually storm the Capitol and overrun the place and not stop like the folks back in the '60s did...
and because they have been reporting the 30,000,000+ illegals as only 12 million so the citizenry doesn't do the job the illegals might.
He’ll give them amnesty, too.
You just nailed it. Somehow we went from “they are just doing jobs Americans won’t do” to “they will riot and burn cars.” Well, which is it? If it’s the latter, I REALLY want them gone.
This idiot has just encouraged the illegal invaders to coerce Americans through riots. This is infuriating.
Nice to know that bubbas in Arkansas are the same kinds of bubbas and bubbettes we have here in Louisiana
John McCain, a United States Senator and Presiential Candidate, stood up publicly and said “In case you hadn’t noticed, the thousands of people who have been relegated to ghettos have risen up and burned cars in France. They’ve got huge problems in France. They have tremendous problems. The police can’t even go into certain areas in the suburbs of Paris. I don’t want that in the suburbs of America.
In essence, this is what Senator McCain really said(paraphrased), “We cannot enforce our laws. We cannot control lawbreakers. Therefore, we should give in to them and let them have what they want so they won’t cause problems for us.”
“They’ve got huge problems in France. They have tremendous problems. The police can’t even go into certain areas in the suburbs of Paris. I don’t want that in the suburbs of America.’’
Then we better enforce the laws on the books regarding illegal immigration.
in your face!
It’s a very sad state of affairs when the REPUBLICAN party starts threating it’s own with riots in the streets. Sounds like our guys in Washington are REALLLLLY asking for a butt kicking in 2008.
