Over the summer, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director of Investigations, Marcy Forman-Friedman went on a world tour, the purpose of which was to talk about me and this site and try to convince agents not to believe what they read here. Oh, and also to try to set up Politburo-style block captains who will rat on my sources within the agency.
I asked ICE agents to send me summaries of what was said, and many did. It was all pretty much the same: I don’t know why Debbie Schlussel doesn’t like me; I don’t know why she calls me “Peppermint Patty”; blah, blah blah.
Why was I the topic of a tax-funded world tour of ICE? Am I the biggest problem facing immigration enforcement? With 20 million illegals in our midst, you’d think there would be a better use for Forman’s and the agents’ time and your tax money . . . like, say, actually investigating document-fraud and immigrant-smuggling rings. But you would be wrong.
Well, just before Thanksgiving, I learned that the Peppermint Patty anti-Schlussel World Tour, which I like to call “The Black Ass Tour”, continues. Here’s what an agent in Miami told me:
Marcy Forman must adore you. When she came to Miami last week, during her town hall meeting she mentioned you several times. She also stated out of nowhere, that she is not a racist. She also backed up Julie Myers, and stated she is not a racist also. Perhaps a guilty conscience.
Hmmm . . . a top ICE official–whom, a court found, called an agent “Black Ass”–is vouching for the non-racism of THE top ICE official, who gave an award to an employee wearing a Blackface costume. Is this the “takes one to know one” show? And they’re wasting your tax dollars meant for investigating and apprehending illegal aliens on a world tour while doing so.
So, what happened to those 20 million illegal aliens? And why aren’t they the agenda, instead of me?
Believe me, even my ego does not believe I am that important. I am not. They–Marcy Forman and her boss, Spoiled McSpoiled-evich, Julie L. Myers–just want other things to focus on, instead of the real hard work of actually doing their jobs.
But while ICE is bragging that it doubled the number of aliens arrested to more than 30,400 illegal aliens nationwide in the 12 months leading to Oct. 2007 (and kudos to the hard-working agents who caught these fugitives), that is a drop in the bucket compared to the 20 million still in our midst.
So long as ICE leaders waste time and money on such erroneous priorities as a witch-hunt and lecture series focusing on me and this site, a drop in the bucket is all we will ever achieve in immigration enforcement. And that’s apparently the point.
In a way, I’m like Israel–the name Arab and Muslim countries use to incite their people against the focus of their leaders’ incompetence. Except that in the case of ICE agents–who are vastly brighter–it doesn’t work.
