Hypocrisy Watch

So this "No Sanctuary Howard County" group has "emerged" onto the scene.  As I am pressed for time, here are a few thoughts:

1) For "conservatives," you folks sure seem to want the heavy hand of the Federal Government involved in our local affairs.  So the black helicopters are OK in this case?  I am just trying to understand the intellectual grounding here.

2) I am assuming a fair number of you self-identify as Republican.  So why am I not seeing that optimistic Reagan-esque language on your FB page? I did see some fear-mongering verbiage, but not much hard evidence.  "Trust but verify," remember that?  Some actual facts might help you there.

3) I saw some concerns expressed regarding education, housing, crime, and other issues.  I can only assume that you are all deeply concerned about these issues when they don't intersect with immigration policy? And that when US citizens violate the rule of law, you are outraged to the same extent, right?

4) If you haven't already done so, read the bill.  It takes about five minutes, 10 if you are half-listening to RT in the background.  The criticisms voiced on the FB page don't align with the intent and likely impact of the bill, if passed.

Stay tuned, as more will follow.

  1. The most hypocritical anti-CB-9 group are the members of the large Asian immigrant community who want to slam door behind them (except for their relatives which they sponsor). What they don't realize is their allies that you describe above are mostly upset about them - the legal immigrants - who have significantly changed demographics in HC over the past 20 years.

  2. Interesting to check out the FB group and see who is a member. Makes me rethink my attitude toward them.
