Cue the violins and cry me a river for all the poor, poor white bigots who’re gonna be, like, sooooooo disappointed when they discover that the Constitution — which, like the Bible, is often waved about and banged upon by people who’ve obviously never read it — applies equally to everyone and that nobody is special just because of the melanin content of their skin.
Stupid white people, who believe themselves superior to people who are not white, are in serious denial as they dream their golden dreams of running all the non-white people out of the country — even the millions who are legal citizens, some of whom were actually born right here in the good ol’ US of A – so they can once again claim their entitlement to special treatment they never deserved in the first place.
Under a new law in Arizona, people who cannot produce their “papers” (documents proving they’re either citizens or non-citizens who are legally in the U.S.) can be arrested, thrown in jail for up to six months, and fined $2500.
Supporters of the law say it’s needed to protect Arizonans. They don’t really have much else of a defense they can use without coming across as bigots because there isn’t one.
And the first time an American citizen of hispanic descent is arrested and jailed, in Arizona, because he/she was not carrying his/her “papers,” Arizona’s new immigration law is destined for the courts.
This is because it encroaches upon the federal government’s authority in regulating immigration, it is overly broad, the logistics of its enforcement can be nothing but arbitrary, and it gives the police way too much power — talk about your “Big Government” — to arrest people for things like walking around in Arizona while being hispanic.
Meanwhile, President Barack Obama has asked the Justice Department to review the law’s implications, and the Arizona ACLU is already on the case.
And when it gets to the courts, it’s gonna be struck down as the unconstitutional anachronism it is.
‘Cause America ain’t just for white folks anymore.
(Y’all know who I’m talkin’at… And you know how I love to get my schadenfreude on over sniveling whiny bigots who lament the decline of “White America.”)
