Meet Ruben Navarrette!


In his tortured commentary for CNN this AM, commentator Ruben Navarrette tries desperately to tie immigration reform to gun control while mentioning — and excusing — ATF's "Fast & Furious." Here's how this foremost voice of Hispanic America,  author of A DARKER SHADE OF CRIMSON: ODYSSEY OF A HARVARD CHICANO, excuses the killings of (according to the Mexican government) 150 Mexican nationals and 2 American agents:
The ATF, the same agency that is pushing the reporting requirement, is embroiled in a scandal because of an ill-conceived operation that let guns go into Mexico. Operation "Fast and Furious" was supposed to lead U.S. authorities to weapons smugglers by allowing more than 2,000 guns to flow into Mexico. The effort was a disaster, and nearly three-fourths of those weapons are still accounted for.
The administration's foul-ups aside, here's what the political end of this border battle is about: money and votes.
"Foul-up aside"...I mean, what's a few bodies among friends? What are the deaths of Mexicans worth? Well, certainly not as much as Harvard men, eh? 


It was just a "foul-up," you know, like when you forget to carry enough change in your Mercedes ashtray to pay a toll? Or, silly you, your wallet's in the other Armani jacket, and you have to ask Bootsie to pick up the check? Could happen to anyone. But you know, I can't help wondering how high a stack of 150 bodies would make, Mr. Naverrette...high enough to be seen from the windows of your San Diego home?

Oh, and I also want to mention your brilliant reporting:
Do you remember the part of the Constitution where it says that people have the right to buy two or more automatic weapons within five days without law enforcement knowing anything about it? Me neither.
Hey Ruben! Me neither! As a matter of fact, you haven't been able to walk into a gun store and buy an automatic weapon since 1934, which you would have learned with 30 seconds of Google research...but I guess you Harvard types don't do your own research. You just print the talking points your Administration handlers tell you to print, right? Lots easier that way — no foul-ups!

you've got it right, navarrette doesn't care much about the "descamisados" unless he can use them to make a political statement, and his ignorance of u.s. law and our constitution is abysmal. a typical modern harvard graduate, he learned nothing then, and nothing more since.

It is yet again the academics telling us what to do.
I line in a university town, the
state attorney general just told them, the unwashed are allowed to carry on university (state property). They are fit to be tied.

Yet they have their own police department at their disposal.

Go figure.

Back in the old Soviet days, (boy them were the days), mass murder was so much simpler. As Uncle Joe used to say, "a single death is a tragedy, a million deaths is just a statistic".

The 150 dead Mexicans is not the real number. How were the Cartels sustained and imbued with more power as a result of arming them? F&F was a method of stoking the Mexican drug war where thousands have died.

Navarette and his administration friends are no different than the political commissars directing the genocide of Ukrainian farmers in furtherance of the political plan. Issusing press releases in the daytime, having murder done at night. Forty thousand dead in Mexico (latest estimates), a few dead Gringos, is just a speed bump on the road to Barry's utopia. They will use the Orwellian language of the left to justify any act they see as needed.

Domestic cultural destruction, the personality cult of il duce Barry, international communism. It must be achieved no matter what it takes. This is the Soviet Union 2.0, smarter, faster, stronger (to steal a phrase from the 6 Million Dollar man).

Beware the next 2 years. Nothing would surprise me at this point. What would be beyond a man and his minions who are willing to murder so many brown skinned people? When backed into the corner of possibly losing power?

At some point in the future the psychological studies of Barry will be written. This is a man not unlike other megalomaniacs. His totally f'd up childhood and parents created a monster amongst our midst. We have to live with the consequences...

I lived in Cambridge MA for four years (working, not studying). The Barneys, as Harvard Types are known to the hoi polloi, never stop reminding you about their days at Hahvahd. The only school where your golden college years never end. What's special about it? Well, they are very selective, old boy, much like, uh, dozens of other schools that are very selective. And they have top academics on the faculty, who, uh, neglect their teaching responsibilities to focus on research, old man. But there's that special ambience about the place, old bean. I believe they mean ordure...from the indoctrination.

By the way, as the locals explained to me, "Barney" is short for "barnyard animal." But it has always put me in mind of another arrogant, slobbering alum, Barney's Frank.

I do remember that part of the constitution. The part that says the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

Not that that has anything to do with this.

If he wants to prevent fully automatic weapons from entering Mexico, I suggest not allowing BATFE agents to carry firearms, or order dealers to sell them to obvious Mexican Smugglers.

If they need to make an actual arrest, they can ask the FBI or local cops to help them.

I was having a discussion about gun control with a liberal friend of mine a while back who said something about automatic machine guns & hunting. He said you don't need a machine gun to hunt deer. Of course I informed him that you can't go into a gun store & buy a machine gun & he said yes you can. When I explained that what he was refering to was a semi-automatic & hunting isn't the only justification to gun ownership. He said semi or auto it was all the same thing. What was that thing people say that if you say something long enough, it becomes the truth?

This friend is a doctor with a hell of a lot more education than I. Go figure!
