Rampant Racism or Rampant Something at least…

Look at the racism being displayed by a supposed civilized country. I simply cannot believe the egregious violation of human rights that’s going on here. This is an absolute outrage. Look at this exchange between Wolf Blitzer and the President of a modern nation:

BLITZER: “So if people want to come from Guatemala or Honduras or El Salvador or Nicaragua, they want to just come into Mexico, can they just walk in?”

CALDERON: “No! They need to fulfill, uh, a form. They need to establish their right name. We analyze if they have not a criminal precedence.”

BLITZER: “Do Mexican police go around asking for papers of people they suspect are illegal immigrants?”

CALDERON: “Of course! Of course!”

BLITZER: “If somebody sneaks in from Nicaragua or some other country in Central America through the southern border of Mexico and they wind up in Mexico, they can going get a job?”

CALDERON: “No, no, no.”

BLITZER: “They can work?”

CALDERON: “If somebody do that without permissions, we send — we send back them.”

Now look compare these statements about immigration law coming from that same president:

CALDERON: “In ————, there is some racial profiling criteria in order to enforce the law that it’s against any sense of human rights; and, of course, is provoking very disappointing, uh, things — or very disappointing opinion — in Mexico and around the world, even here in ————. So to introduce this kind of elements, especially racial profiling aspect that are attempting against what we consider human rights, it’s the principle of discrimination which is against the values of this great nation.”

Surely Calderon must be talking about the harsh immigration policies his country (Mexico, if you didn’t know) enacted, right? Nope. He’s talking about Arizona and America. These comments come shortly before his above statements, makes them seem a little ridiculous in that order doesn’t it? That’s right folks, Mexico’s Presidente is criticizing a State for enacting laws very similar to his own country’s. The only difference, Arizona’s might not be as harsh. If this isn’t rampant hypocrisy I don’t know what is. (These quotes came from CNN’s Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer 19 May 2010.)

A little old, but still valuable I’d say.
