The Raaaaacist Industrial Complex Strikes Again

This story is about an event that took place today, Monday September 13, 2010. I just heard this story on my afternoon jog, via my local radio host Mike Broomhead, but thought it was worth sharing.

From The Phoenix Business Journal:

Phoenix College is celebrating its 90th anniversary Sept. 13, but highly celebrated alumna Stella Pope Duarte will be nowhere to be seen.

The Valley author and Phoenix College adjunct professor was scheduled to speak at the celebration until she heard Gov. Jan Brewer — who signed Senate Bill 1070 into law earlier this year — also would be there.

“By far, Jan Brewer has shown herself to be the most unreasonable and racist governor in our country, and her discriminatory policies echo the type of prejudice that took place during the lynchings and brutality suffered by African Americans in the South,” Duarte said. “I have known families who have suffered gravely due to the policies she has so easily signed into law.”

Paul Senseman, the governor’s spokesman, said Brewer is grateful for the invitation from Phoenix College to commemorate its milestone.


I am not personally offended... in fact, I find it laughable that this woman made the statement she made. The very idea that she is comparing Arizona SB 1070 to Jim Crow laws, Klan lynchings, and any other truly racist actions is quite simply outlandish.

I'm guessing that nobody missed Ms. Duarte's presence. My statement is nothing personal, mind you; most of these events have so many guest speakers it's difficult to hold your eyelids open without toothpicks anyway.

Nonetheless, outside of what little publicity she's getting from people like AM radio and bloggers like me, she's kind of like that tree falling in the woods.

I invite anyone interested to contact Ms. Duarte here, and let her know how you feel about her statements.

It's a waste of electrons to comment on Duarte further than I'm doing.

She's free to leave Arizona or to move to that paradise that awaits across Arizona's southern border...

In the last four months Jan Brewer has been caught lying, three times and counting.

The comments made on June 16, 2010, and June 27, 2010, clearly indicates that the Brewer says that immigrants are beheading people in the United States desert. She first ran away from the question and the press when confronted with the question. She finally when to FOX/ FAKE News to recant her lie.

When Brewer was confronted with the fact the two of her top Advisors (Paul Senseman, Chuck Coughlin) are lobbyist for “Private Prisons” giant CCA she first ran away from the question and the press.

In an attempt to gain sympathy, she first said her father had died in Germany fighting the Nazi in World War II (which ended 1945) but of course we find out the truth that her father was never in Germany and died in California in 1955. Do you see a trend here?

Brewer signed into law SB 1070 Bill (Did she even read it?), lied about the crime rates in AZ (even Janet Napolitano knows that all crimes rates went down), and now we find out that she is in the pockets of PRIVATE PRISONS who stand to benefit with the increase Federal jailing, and thus they will pay her back, I wonder if it has to do anything about the fact that her son was transferred to a brand new prison, he was convicted for rape and sexual assault, I guess the fruit does not fall far the tree.

“Private Prisons Lie”

“AZ Crime Rates”

“Father Lie”

How fortuitous that Ms. Duarte deported herself from the event.

LL -

I am grateful that you chose this space to waste your electrons in discussion of Stella Duarte.

But you know she won't head south to that paradise, when there's so much to complain about here.

Benito -

The only thing I see is that you have bought into the Rachel Maddow / leftist theory that no politician should ever have connections to anything, anywhere, anytime before and during they hold public office.

You are playing one of the favorite games of the left - guilt by association. Just because Brewer knows people associated with the a private company that happens to coordinate with the Arizona prison system, does not mean that she is purposefully working to benefit that prison system.

It just means she knows people.

And regarding your crime stats - I don't know where you live, but I can tell you with great certainty that crime has risen in Arizona. I live here, and I see and hear about it every day.. per capita - given the fact that we have helped a couple hundred thousand illegals to self-deport - our rates are actually increased in our major metropolitan areas. We have had a man shot on his own ranch, a Sheriff's Deputy shot in the middle of the desert, multiple Sheriffs and their families threatened by cartels from south of the border..

And we are being bludgeoned by illegals who still choose to live here, by their financial abuse and gaming of our liberal assistance programs.

Jan Brewer is not perfect... she is a lousy public speaker, but she is doing the right thing for the people of Arizona and the people of America.

If you actually read SB 1070 you would understand this, but since you're a leftist parrot you have no idea what it is you're spouting about.

She could be a fine lesson to illegals across the land, in the methods of self-deportation, of sorts.

These people are like robots with short circuits.

Or 3 year olds. Take your pick.

So, what you're really alluding to here is Ms. Duarte hasn't been to your southern border lately.
