UPI Photo – Angry Protesters Prevent Government Employees From Doing Their Job!
San Francisco Supervisor David Campos, a Democrat, railed against the gangster government and its “discriminatory law.” President Barack Obama called the law legally passed by elected officials in Arizona “misguided.” Thousands of enraged progressive-liberal protesters gathered this week, but that kind of rhetoric can have serious consequences, former President Bill Clinton said Tuesday.
“They (Arizona lawmakers) are not gangsters,” Mr. Clinton said in an interview with the New York Times. “They were elected. They are not doing anything they were not elected to do.”
The former president, who was in his first term in office when Timothy McVeigh bombed an Oklahoma City federal building, drew parallels between the anti-government rhetoric being used now and what was being said then.
He called McVeigh and his supporters “profoundly alienated, disconnected people who bought into this militant anti-government line.” Furthermore, Mr. Clinton said the Internet has allowed political immigration messages to reach both the “serious and seriously disturbed.”
Progressive-Democrat-Socialist anger over enforcing existing immigration law did coincide with a rash of arrests and violence as those in favor of breaking the law protested against members of the Arizona Government. The Liberal demonstrators against the Arizona law, which is simply calling for enforcement of Federal law, have said negative stereotypes of the group are not true.
Mr. Clinton, upset over the violence and rhetoric of those who support breaking the law, said that lawmakers should try harder to distinguish between acceptable dialogue and rhetoric that crosses the line, the Times reports.
“Have at it,” he said. “You can attack the immigration politics. Criticize their immigration policies. But don’t demonize them, and don’t say things that will encourage violent opposition.”
Conservative commentators praised Mr. Clinton for speaking out against the language used and the violent opposition. “He made similar comments about Tea Party protesters and it’s nice to see that he is consistent and honest in his approach to keeping people safe and keeping the debate civil,” said Rush Hudson Limbaugh, mmmm, mmmm, mmmm.
Clinton is at least one Democrat who is seeking to lower the partisan rancor — Clinton recently attracted attention for calling radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh a “nice man” and telling constituents to rely on more than NBC News for their information.
