The Washington Post: Promoting Illegal Immigration Daily and Twice On Sunday

26 04 2008

Cross posted from Conservative Common Man:

I receive two daily e-mails from The Washington Post,
one with “news” headlines and the other with political headlines and
editorials. Given the Post’s reputation for being a typical liberally
biased newspaper, I fully expect to see immigration sob stories or
other reports detailing the plight of downtrodden illegal aliens and
the vicious laws that restrict them when I read these e-mails, but
today’s offering was a double dose. One article is the usual fare
detailing the bad people that want illegal immigration laws enforced
and the subsequent ill will and damage to the community caused by the
desire for order and lawfulness. The other article bemoaned the border
fence and its possible impact on plants and animals.

It seems Prince William County in Virginia
has become an example of how not to deal with illegal immigration. The
Washington Post’s preferred method for communities coping with the
problem of illegals is more of a “hands off” approach or more
specifically, a “not at all” approach. Kristen Mack wrote an article
titled “Immigration Fight Has New Target, Stewart Hurts Pr. Williams’ Prospects With Harsh Rhetoric Some Say.”
The target of this fight is Corey Stewart, Prince William County Board
of Supervisors Chairman. The following excerpt from Ms. Mack’s article
paints a grim picture of ill will in Prince William County:

When Prince William Board of County Supervisors Chairman Corey A. Stewart
dressed down the police chief for hosting a public meeting with the
Mexican consul to discuss the county’s controversial immigration
policy, Elena Schlossberg-Kunkel was appalled.

Elected officials and business
leaders in Prince William say they are worried that the county’s focus
on illegal immigration is hurting Prince William’s image at a critical
time in its growth and effort to remake itself.

Virginia’s
second-largest county had been known for years as a center of cheap
housing and bargain shopping. But in recent years, Prince William
leaders have tried to change course by attracting high-tech employers,
building luxury homes and supporting good schools much as neighboring Loudoun and Fairfax counties have done.

Now, several supervisors in both
parties and business leaders said, those efforts could be set back if
county officials do not shift their focus from illegal immigration,
which has divided the community and brought Prince William negative
national exposure. (”The Road to Dystopia,” one newspaper said of the
crackdown.)

Apparently Prince William County
should shift its focus from the illegal alien issue. One wonders why
the board of supervisors would have passed the “controversial
immigration policy” if there hadn’t been a problem with illegal
immigrants in that particular county. Of course the need for and events
preceding the passage of the policy are not to be considered by The
Washington Post, for they do not further the agenda. All that will be
presented is opinion and the arguments that support demonizing the
advocates for tough policies for dealing with ILLEGAL immigrants.
The Post, like the other entities that seek to portray theses
situations as anti-immigrant chooses to intentionally avoid the most
important adjective that describes the targeted immigrants: ILLEGAL! These
disinformation dissemination devices do occasionally slip the word
“illegal” into their text, but not often enough to accurately depict
the fact that these policies and laws are not “anti-immigrant.”

The Post also actively ignores the fact that Prince William County’s
national exposure has not been entirely negative. It is true that the
most widely read and heard exposure is negative due to the liberal
media its place of prominence in reporting. Those of us that find
alternative sources of information have heard positive reports
regarding the county’s policies. As a matter of fact, negative national
exposure at the hands of liberal vessels such as The Washington Post
is the goal of this particular article. Chairman Stewart seems to be
doing his job as opposed to giving in to the pro-illegal liberal agenda
and therefore the liberal press views him as a threat. The more
effective and outspoken someone like Stewart is, the harder the press
must try and silence or discredit him. If they are not successful in
destroying the credibility of public officials that strive to do the
right things and uphold the laws regarding illegal aliens, then others
may follow. The Washington Post editors would really have its work cut
out for them if the majority of counties across the nation took the
problem of illegal immigration seriously.

The
anti-enforcement movement at The Post does not limit its focus to
personal sob stories and the effects on humans. Roxanne de Luca,
filling in at Haemet (www.conservablogs.com/haemet) wrote a great piece on the fence story Environmentalists Throwing Themselves Under the Bus :

The Washington Post reported that the border fence between the United States and Mexico may damage the environment. (Story here.)
Specifically, the fence may prevent various animals and plants from
crossing the border and mating. (The WaPo was unclear on how plants,
which are not locomotive, would be affected by a fence.) Some
environmentalists are so incensed that the pronghorn and long-nose bat
will be affected by the Bush Administration’s policies that they are
threatening civil disobedience.

The environmentalists want to
allow for the free flow of illegals across our southern border because
stemming that flow would harm the terrain and possibly have an affect
on plants and animals in the area. The article referenced by Roxanne,
written by Juliet Eilperin is titled “Researchers Fear Southern Fence Will Endanger Species Further.”

“This wall is so asinine, and so
wrong, I am one of a dozen scientists ready to lay our bodies down in
front of tractors,” Healy Hamilton, who directs the Center for
Biodiversity Research and Information at the California Academy of
Sciences, told colleagues at a recent scientific retreat here. “This is
one thing we might be able to stop.”

“Make it 13!” said Allison Jones, a conservation biologist at the Wild Utah Project, an advocacy group.

Hamilton and Jones have yet to
throw themselves before bulldozers, but their call to arms reflects the
researchers’ growing fears that the wall will imperil species that, in
Hamilton’s words, “walk, fly or crawl across that border.”

The environmentalists appear to
show deep concern for the environment as long as one only looks at part
of the situation. That is unless the trash and backpacks left behind by
the people sneaking over the border pose no threat to the environment.
I am also curious how a fence will affect those species that would fly
“across that border.” That must be one tall fence!

These enviro-nuts embody the
typical liberal mindset, the central tenet of which is gross hypocrisy.
Much like pro-abortion activists that oppose the death penalty for
criminals while advocating its use on the most innocent, these
activists choose a side of an issue and ignore the environmental impact
of the immoral or illegal behavior they support. This is definitely in
line with Al Gore jet-setting around the world to reduce carbon
emissions or the Clintons opposing all wealth… other than that of themselves their closest friends.

I wonder if The Washington Post
and the environmentalists would be satisfied if the border fence was
constructed with recycled materials and built by illegals? It might
work out as long as they are on the Southern side of the fence once it
is completed.

Typical post from a typical tunnel vision neoconservative that plaintively gripe like babies and always laying blame on everyone else but themselves and their own now turned radical neocon party.

Mr. or Ms. conservative poster….you need to look in your own “let’s keep the illegal alien invaders here” republican party and your own republican congressional membership desirous to keep the illegal aliens here for cheap labor exploitation purposes. Your own presidential candidate “it’s nap time” grampaw mccain is PRO illegal alien.

You neocon types may be mirror opposites of the weak willy left wing but just as culpable and guilty with your party’s excuses to keep illegal aliens here premanently as the left is guilty of nothing more than being softhearted and blind to the effects of what adding between 40 to 60 million flotsam/jetsam illegal alien bodies that breed like rats is rapidly doing to this nation already.

It’s posts like yours always blaming “the guys you oppose” while turning off your brain to the fact that millions of your neoconservative partners profess the same identical thing with the soul exception of reason for cause, that ensures that neither of us, nor anyone we know or even associate with will ever join the republican or democratic parties in our lifetimes.

Signed,

Liberty and Freedom
