Skip to comments.If Only Arizona Were the Real Problem (NYT attacks Tea Parties "a political virus") (BARF ALERT)

Dont blame it all on Arizona. The Grand Canyon State simply happened to be in the right place at the right time to tilt over to the dark side. Its hysteria is but another symptom of a political virus that cant be quarantined and whose cure is as yet unknown.
If many of Arizonas defenders and critics hold one belief in common, its that the new show me your papers law is sui generis: its seen as one angry border states response to its outsized share of Americas illegal immigration crisis. But to label this development Arizonas folly trivializes its import and reach. The more you examine the laws provisions and proponents, the more you realize that its the latest and (so far) most vicious battle in a far broader movement that is not just about illegal immigrants and that is steadily increasing its annexation of one of Americas two major political parties.
Arizonans, like all Americans, have every right to be furious about Washingtons protracted and bipartisan failure to address the immigration stalemate. To be angry about illegal immigration is hardly tantamount to being a bigot. But the Arizona law expressing that anger is bigoted, and in a very particular way. The law dovetails seamlessly with the national Take Back America crusade that has attended the rise of Barack Obama and the accelerating demographic shift our first African-American president represents.

The Old Grey Hag lashes out in anger and derangement.
There is a reason why the al Qaeda terrorist hijackers of 9/11 chose NOT to crash one of those planes into the New York Times building, after all:
Why would they attack their ALLIES?
The NYT and al Qaeda share a common goal: the destruction of America and that is the bottom line.
I’m guessing the NYT sponsored Bolshevik May 1 protests today turned out flat like Lindshay Gaywham in a dress.
Frank Rich sees EVERYTHING through the lens of race.
I wonder how the pro-illegal alien crowd would feel if we adopted Mexico’s own immigration laws.
Just to prove that I am no racist..let’s deport the 100,000 or so Irish illegals first.

The Arizona law is a duplicate of current federal law except that it outlaws "Sanctuary Cities" within Arizona.
Disease: Conservatism Known Vectors: Close Contact, Reading Comprehension, FreeRepublic.com Cause: Unknown Cure: None Survivability: 1 in 84,316 Other: This terminal illness is to be avoided at all costs; recommenced quarantine of infected individuals and incineration of them and their possessions.
People there didn't look like a virus or other pathogen:
Lisa Davenport, candidate for CT Senate
Not that the NYT cares, or has the journalistic integrity to research it, but immigrants are already required to carry papers proving their status at all times by federal law.
STFU, Frank. You’re speaking for the minority of America-haters, Socialists, and other left-liberal misfits in this country.
The vast majority of real Americans aren’t paying the slightest attention to what you and your merry band of traitors has to say.
Rich would love to see Israelis killed and the PLO dancing in the streets! And we’re supposed to suck up this swill from NYT POS!? Don’t think so!
how about the real virus of the criminal kind spreading throughout the land..including media who cant report the truth.
The real problem are communists like the ones working at the NYT.
Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim could be about to take over the New York Times. Rich is sucking up to him.
Carlos has a big mortgage on the NYT......LOL!
Frank Rich is a sniveling, smelly coward. He will never, ever die on a hilltop for obuma. He wants his bennies - a hot shower, child porn, raping little boys - and will wave the commie flag. He doesn’t realize it yet, but he’s outnumbered 50 to 1.
Awesome! I love the “Block Blumy” sign. I had an idea to enhance the “Stop Corruption” sign — what about replacing the standard o’s with Oboobma-style O’s.
What a great day for a Tea Party. A little warm but it sure beats flooding weather. I was part of an impromptu Tea Party today up at our town’s rec plex after my son’s baseball game. It was opening day so there was a lot of foot traffic and my wife was doing a fund raiser so we were helping out. Some of my friends and I started getting into some discussions and soon we had a few more people join in. It was kinda cool to have something organic like that pop right up under your feet.
Anyway, thanks for the ping. Nice to know there’s another FReeper out there in the 2nd that’s working to oust Joke Courtney.
That’s okay. The Tea Party memberships are growing and the old Grey Hag is dropping like a rock.
