Writes Glenn Jacobs:
I received a solicitation for a donation to Joe Arpaio's campaign today. The letter chronicled Arpaio's battles with illegal immigrants, Mexican drug cartels, and "open-border" leftists. I find it alarming that a local politician is utilizing illegal immigration as a national fund-raising platform (especially a fascist thug like Arpaio). Meanwhile, we have the mosque controversy in New York, and a mosque under construction vandalized and burned in middle Tennessee.
Lew, it seems as if all that is needed is the right spark and the collectivist inclinations of so many Americans will explode into the police state that we all fear. The politicians and media have worked very hard to create the scapegoats with which to divert the public's attention away from the failed policies of the State.
I wasn't around in the '60s and don't remember the '70s so I don't have much with which to compare the current environment except history books, but things are starting to get really ugly, aren't they?
