Don’t listen to the ACLU

The ACLU of Washington has issued a travel alert for Arizona to dissuade American citizens from visiting the state in an attempted boycott over the new Arizona immigration law, all under the guise of informing individuals of their “rights.” Shouldn’t the alert be for Mexican citizens considering illegal travel into Arizona from Mexico, because they might be arrested (as they should) under U.S. and Arizona law?

How about we Republicans starting our own version. Let’s call it the ACL-ME, for Americans for Criminal Litigation of Malicious Enemies. How about protecting me for a change, ACLU? How about enforcing our laws, Mr. Obama. It’s flattering that everyone wants to crash our party, but I’m sorry, there just aren’t enough refreshments to go around right now. It’s not about racism, its about security, finances, drugs, and the law.

I hope Americans will educate themselves about the ACLU, not be persuaded by its propaganda, and consider voting Republican in November, or whenever they have the chance. Let’s stop this charade dead in its tracks.
