A while back I made the mistake of signing an online petition sponsored by a group called “Grassfire” on the issue of the two border patrol agents jailed for shooting a criminal at the border. Since then I’ve gotten every bit of hateful racist anti-Mexican propaganda this outfit puts out and they leave little doubt that the organizers motivations go way beyond securing the border against terrorism and into preventing those dirty brown people (none of whom has committed a terrorist act) from infecting their country. The latest email had this headline “President asks for volunteers to build border fence.” Now this is the border fence that the Wall and Purge Crowd has been calling for for a couple of years now. The same fence that the Minutemen have been calling for volunteers to build. So Steve Elliott and Grassfire.org are happy that the President is on their side now, right?
From Mr. Elliott’s latest letter:
We’ve just learned that the President is calling on border
agents with welding and construction experience to finish
70 miles of fencing on the border!
This is no joke. This Administration is actually asking for
volunteers to help build the fence–demonstrating once again
that they aren’t the least bit serious in enforcing our border. [Emphasis mine]
While there’s certainly plenty done by this administration that deserves criticism (and much more that deserves praise), the least anyone deserves is a fair shake when he actually does what you ask for. Mr. Elliott has proven that with him, like the whacko environmentalists and others on the left, this President is damned if he does and damned if he doesn’t.
