So, if you don't live in Arizona, especially along the border, can you lighten up on the new immigration law?
I mean, I'm not that into Arizonan's opinions on whether taxi fares in NYC should be raised. This is the same thing. "All politics is local," the libs love to say.
Take these U.N. human rights experts — an oxymoron, emphasis on moron. According to them, Arizona's new law on illegal immigration could violate international standards, whatever that means.
They claim "a disturbing pattern of legislative activity hostile to ethnic minorities and immigrants has been established… that may allow for police action targeting individuals on the basis of their perceived ethnic origin."
Of course, they leave out the fact that the law already exists (hence the term illegal immigration), or that — as of yet — there hasn't been a single incidence of so-called targeted police action.
But that's not my point, anyway. Whether you love the law or hate it — the U.N. spouting off on this crap is like Hitler giving advice on Hanukah shopping.
Take Mexico's Jorge Bustamante — who must be pissed that it's a crime to be in the U.S. illegally. Just like Mexico. In fact, you could end up in jail for years if you're caught there illegally.
Here's a tip Busta: focus on why so many of your citizens are coming here, instead of staying there. Something tells me the human rights abuses are a tad worse — if by tad, you mean "Eso es pura mierda."
And of course, there's Farida Shaheed. She's from Pakistan — a shining human rights beacon. Well, as long as you overlook persecution of women, gays, children, religious minorities, non-Muslims, Muslims and sexually harassed goats.
But why worry too much about thousands of "honor killings," when a Phoenix cop just asked a Hispanic for his license because of a busted tail light? Shaheed don't like it, mocking the flash car.
What else can I say about UN human rights experts? That they're worth every penny (they're unpaid).
