Shorter Wingnut Media on Rodriguez-Flamenco

2 Nov

On the alleged stabbing murder of an innocent Wal*Mart shopper in Albion the other day:

Knives don’t kill people. Visa statuses do.

Let’s be clear – the accused Honduran didn’t come to Albion in some vacuum. He came here because there’s a demand for farmhands, and astonishingly, not many people locally want to do that work. Reform the immigration laws to allow for guest workers to come here legally for temporary assignments, and you solve the visa issue.  As for crazy people stabbing women in parking lots, I’m sorry to inform you that illegal aliens don’t have the market cornered on violent crime, anywhere.

    Thank you Alan! Well said.

    Slight correction. Knives don’t kill people–scumbags kill people.
    If you wish to judge the calibre of this particular “guest worker” wannabe and his amigos, it’s right here.

    If only there was a way to get these poor lads a visa, or “guest worker” status, all our worries would be over.

    Ward, get off your high horse. We’re not stupid here.

    If such a program was EVER to be announced, you’d immediately denounce it as some godless, Communist plot.

    Save us all your fake F’ing sympathy.

    Carl – sometime when you decide to pursue your GED you may be required to attend a high school level English class in which the literary tool of irony is mentioned.

    Let us know how that works out for you, eh?

    Ward: Maybe I can’t pick up irony or satire all the time, but I did graduate from college.

    Half the time on here, you post such right wing claptrap we don’t know if you really mean it or you’re just playing with our heads.

    And, again, save us your fake-ass F’ing sympathy. It is not needed nor wanted.

    Alan is certainly right about one thing—NOBODY has the market cornered on crime. I was in town last weekend, had my car broken into in the All Saints Church parking lot in the middle of the day, lost my phone, camera and GPS. Plenty of minorities in what used to be a basically lilly white neighborhood, but rest assured most of the folks who live there now were born here. I do wonder how much jack it costs to get to Albion from Honduras though.

    Carl — really glad to learn you graduated from college. Now you can join the “Occupy” crowd and complain how you were left with loads of debt and no job.
    Perhaps that was the result of attending a college whose literature curriculum defines irony as “fake-ass F’ing sympathy” (“fake-ass” apparently being one degree beyond mere “fake”).

    Oh, and Carl —
    Far from amnesty being a godless commie plot, I think Little Barry’s drunk-driving Uncle Omar should immediately be given permanent resident status and put on lifetime welfare, just like Barry’s Auntie Zeituni.
    (Actually, that statement would be another example of, as they taught you in junior college, “fake-ass”.)

    Ward: Hate to tell you this….but I AM employed.

    I back the goals of the OWS folks…but they’re getting mighty too comfortable. If you’re going to change the mindset of the country, you have to do something. Sitting in a park or wherever isn’t going to cut it.
