Mexico and Washington flip us the bird

By David Karki [May 20th 2010]

Mexican President Felipe Calderón addressed a joint session of Congress today, in which he had the unmitigated gall to effectively give America the finger for Arizona’s passage of a law to try and clean up the mess resulting from his country being a drug cartel-controlled, crime-riddled, corrupt-to-the-core, third-world craphole which he simply wants to keep shoving north of the border rather than clean up – a law not nearly as stringent as Mexico’s own against illegal immigration, by the way.

This disgusting and hypocritical display by itself is not entirely surprising. Nor was President Obama and Congress’ stupidity in having given him the chance to insult us on our own soil to begin with. What was a bit surprising and a lot infuriating and outrageous was seeing Obama wholeheartedly agree with him, Democrats leap to their feet to give him a standing ovation, and Republicans do nothing, too gutless to even get up and walk out much less boo the crap out all of them as they richly deserved.

It could not be clearer that Obama and the Democrats have sided with America’s enemies and against her people. A foreign leader comes to our capitol, stands in the well of the House chamber, openly trashes one of our states and the citizens thereof, and not only is he not thrown out on his ass and told never to come back again, he’s embraced and applauded by the majority of America’s top government officials. And the rest sit there like bumps on logs, not uttering a peep of protest, so terrified of the race card are they.

Far from coming here and lecturing us, it ought to be the American president who goes to Mexico City and tells the crooked politicians of that third-world armpit that it’s inexcusable to have so much crime and poverty when their oil and beaches alone ought to generate a first-world standard of living for all Mexicans.  That Mexicans should grow some cojones and fight like hell to save their country from the drug lords, instead of cowardly fleeing to America and then once there, living off her generosity, hypocritically and ungratefully waving the Mexican flag in everyone’s face. That southwest America has never been Mexico’s and any attempt at reconquista will be treated and responded to as the violation of national sovereignty and overt act of war it is.

And finally that, until such time as conditions in Mexico sufficiently change for the better – or if American military invasion is ultimately the only way to clean up that disaster area south of the Rio Grande once and for all so that the border isn’t a de facto war zone and the rights of American citizens in the southwest are protected – a wall so big and impenetrable that China’s Great one will look like a piece of chain link by comparison is going up from San Diego, CA to Brownsville, TX immediately and permanently. Consider it our double upraised middle finger right back at you, Felipe.

But we all know that such a thing, as based in the truth and deserved as it would be, will not ever happen. Why? Because our own government has sided with Calderón and Mexico against us. They have, by their open embrace of this despicable stunt, committed treason. They have elevated serving another country’s leader and people over serving their own. They have made it clear that they are as committed to the destruction of this country, as it was founded, as any foreign enemy America has ever had.

Mexico at best, in an act of unconscionable irresponsibility, shoves a stinking mess entirely of their own creation and all of the related costs thereof onto us; at worst, they very possibly are setting the stage for attempting to violate and wrest back a portion of America’s sovereign territory. Is there any response to this inexcusable treatment of a neighbor? None whatsoever.

And when one state is finally forced to respond in self-defense, because the federal government absolutely refuses to uphold its sworn Constitutional duty to protect the national border, they allow Mexico’s leader to come here, taunt that state, and applaud him for it.  (Consider that their middle finger joining Calderón’s.)

It matters not that one side openly embraces the jerk-off foreign leader while the other cowardly slinks away – both are equally culpable for their equally sickening reactions and therefore the enemy of all who hold America dear. And we would be far better served to worry about them before anyone south of the Rio Grande, for without the enabling behavior of a treasonous President and Congress, Mexico’s situation would be none of our concern.

Of course, the fact that we have such a government doesn’t reflect well on us; nor does the lack of an immediate and infuriated outcry from all America’s people. That Obama and Congress didn’t feel the need to even try to hide this display is very telling, beyond the extreme arrogance and chutzpah shown. They clearly think that enough of us are either supportive or too wrapped up in whether Lee or Crystal will win American Idol to even notice. Sadly, they may be closer to right than I care to admit.

When something as alarming as this can be perpetrated, and it elicits no response, perhaps the real enemy and threat to America’s future isn’t in Mexico or Washington, but among us – maybe even in the mirror.

“The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the presidency. It will be easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to an electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails us. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The republic can survive a Barack Obama. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.” — Author Unknown
