Having voted more than once for John McCain (although certainly never in a primary), I will never be clean again.
A constellation of intellectual heavyweights showed up at the University of Southern California on Tuesday to discuss the issues surrounding immigration reform. That stars in that constellation included former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, and former presidential candidate Senator John McCain (R-AZ). All three agreed that immediate immigration reform legislation should be passed, without substantial additions to border security.
That the consequences of this would be devastating for the United States economically, politically, socially, and in terms of national security and rule of law is obvious to anyone who has followed the issue.
You can’t expect anything else from Villaraigosa, considering that this militant anti-American radical is a former chapter head of MEChA, an organization devoted to driving all non-Hispanics out of the southwest third of the United States. The treason of the other two is beyond comprehension.
As always, the odious John “Lettuce” McCain was particularly vicious toward the conservatives that he has made a career of betraying on behalf of the leftists he obsequiously serves.
McCain led the way, slandering members of his own party in the House as unsympathetic toward immigrants. He said they needed to get in touch with their “better angels” on illegal immigration, and then suggested that if they couldn’t get in touch with their humanity, they ought to get in touch with their “baser instincts,” which would tell them that they ought to embrace immigration reform in order to pander to Hispanic voters.
Anyone remember how after his amnesty collaboration with Chappaquiddick Ted Kennedy went down in flames, McCain humbly assured us he had learned his lesson? Characteristically, he was lying.
If only voters would learn this lesson: no matter how awful their opponents, we have got to stop electing back-stabbing quislings like McCain.
On a tip from Henry.
