tea party and arizona anti-immigration

Just in case anyone thought that the teabaggers might have an (anti-fascist and principaled constitutional) ideological problem with the new Arizona police state law, rest assured that  the Arizona Tea Party Network sent out word to gather at the capital to support the governor as she signed the most draconian anti-immigration bill in the country, into law. So much for the anti-fascist sentiment. And just to be sure, the Rachel Maddow video below outlines just where the legislation originated and was formulated – and that would of course, be through an interconnected network of personalities and organizations with connections to white supremacist and pro-eugenics groups.  This comes as a confirmation (of sorts) outlined in the kkk posts below, in that the teabag movement is both harmonic (if not beholden) to the ideology of white supremacy and follows the similar trajectory of kkk infiltration of the Democratic Party  and their operational strategy during the 1920’s.

In a lot of ways the situation in Arizona can in kind, be construed as a similar pressure cooker where teabag rubber meets the proverbial  hard hot highway of racial demographics, crime, and religion, all of which constitute a  resurgence of a kind of hyper threat to traditional white privilege, not at all unlike the similar milieu of the 1920’s. Arizona is a tender box, where 1/3 of the legal population are  Latinos, and has an additional, estimated 500,000 illegal Latino immigrants, with little doubt, accounting for the states unparalleled rank of the fastest growing state in the union.  Phoenix the largest city in Arizona, rates 5th in crime of all U.S. cities, and features itself as the kidnapping capital of the United States,  following only Mexico City as the biggest kidnapping city in the entire world. And finally there is the little discussed issue of religion, where the immigrant population from Mexico is up to 90% Roman Catholic, in a country with a comparable 24% Catholic affiliation.

As far as I can see, the issues are the same, and the response is the same.

The question is, will it work,  will it be deemed unconstitutional, or will it exacerbate  the problems, and lead to more draconian solutions?

    Leftists are being total sissies over this. America has laws concerning immigration, but if the police officers can’t enforce the law then what’s the point? Our police need to be empowered to enact the law.

    Well sure, there laws against illegal immigration that need to be enforced. But these are federal laws under enforcement by ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement). Having local or state law enforcement do ICE’s job is probably not only unconstitutional, but is stupid as well – especially since this legislation is drawn up, that enables the citizenry the legal right to demand that the police enforce this law. This opens the floodgate of vigilante citizens using the police force as a political tool of harassment. Sort of like how the brownshirts operated.

    “or will it exasperate the problems, and lead to more draconian solutions?”
    Did you mean “exacerbate?”

    Thanks, I’d fire the editor, but I’d have no one left to blame. Fixed it though.
