The most notable thing about Saturday’s Safeway massacre, aside from the lives tragically lost, is the plethora of hypocrites and blame-gamer attention whores who’ve predictably crawled out from under their rocks.
As I noted Saturday evening, ABC News and the other mainstream media outlets wasted no time blaming Saturday’s Safeway massacre by Jared Lee Loughner on supporters of Arizona’s immigration law and secure borders. And you’ve seen the rest of the left-wing blame gamers’ coterie of conservative targets in assigning guilt for the work of a lone nut, left-wing gunman, an MSNBC fan.
The worst of the cast of blame-gaming attention whores in this whole saga is Pima County Sheriff Clarence “the Doompa” Dupnik. If there was ever a man with an apt surname, it’s that clown. Talk about a super-duper duper with his “climate of hate” baloney. I guess this guy never heard of the First Amendment . . . or of the fact that Phoenix is the kidnapping capital of the U.S. because of the illegal alien invasion of Arizona. Please belately add “climate of hate” to the list of banned words and phrases put out in the last weeks of 2010. When liberals say “climate of hate,” what they really mean is “Free speech for me, but not for you.”
Still, barely mentioned in this whole media frenzy is the reason why murdered Federal Judge John M. Roll was at the fateful and fatal supermarket meeting with Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. It’s a reason that’s apparently lost on blind, deaf, and dumb media whore Sheriff Dupnik: the illegal alien problem in Arizona that was clogging Judge Roll’s courts. But, hey, saying so must make me–and Judge Roll!–“hatemongers” purveying the “climate of hate.”
Judge Roll, 63 years old, attended the event Saturday in Tucson to thank Rep. Gabrielle Giffords for signing a letter to Judge Alex Kozinski, the chief judge of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, according to Michael Daly Hawkins, a judge on the court.
The letter was intended to help persuade the court to declare his federal district a judicial emergency due to the high number of immigration cases that were being heard there. Such a declaration would trigger measures such as allowing judges to delay a trial because of strained resources.
Unfortunately, Judge Roll–nominated by President George H.W. Bush–had a mixed record on enforcing the law in the illegal alien invasion, yet more evidence that many Republicans appoint federal judges who just aren’t reliable to always do the right and sensible thing on the bench.
The judge was also fair-minded, said Richard Martinez, a Tucson attorney. Mr. Martinez appeared before Judge Roll in a high-profile 2005 lawsuit filed by Mexican immigrants who claimed that their civil rights had been violated by Arizona ranchers who had detained them at gunpoint after they crossed the border.
In 2009, Judge Roll denied the ranchers’ motion to dismiss the case, a ruling that earned him scorn from some . . . . In 2005, . . . he dismissed a lawsuit against the U.S. Department of the Interior by the families of 11 illegal immigrants who died crossing the Arizona desert.
So, we know why Judge Roll was at the meeting: to thank Giffords for trying to declare his courthouse a judicial emergency because the illegal alien invasion was wreaking havoc upon it, just as it is on the streets of Tucson and elsewhere. How sad that, despite this, the County Sheriff, Dupnik, is utterly clueless of the situation and, instead, calls those in Arizona who point it out–including Judge Roll–contributors to this nebulous “climate of hate.”
A Tucson Citizen report claimed that Mexican shoppers add a billion dollars annually to the Tucson economy. But as Judge Roll’s judicial emergency shows, they probably add more than a billion dollars in legal headaches, drains on the system, and even bloodshed of innocent Americans.
And as for that “climate of hate,” apparently if we who support secure borders are guilty of creating that and of the massacre by a left-wing nut at Safeway, then I guess Judge Super-Duper Duper Dupnik is just as guilty. From a 2009 Tucson Citizen report:
Dupnik, a Democrat, said at a news conference last week that 40 percent of the students in the Sunnyside Unified School District were in the country illegally and that the South, Southwest and West sides had high crime rates linked to illegal immigration.
Hmmm . . . Pot. Kettle. Black. Well, at least, he tells the truth when it won’t get him on FOX News and CNN.
“Climate of hate” . . . or climate of brutal, honest truth?
