Commentary on a racist message
Dear Diary, here is a racist message someone sent me in the last few weeks. By definition, I was repulsed, but I did not delete it, because it made me think. We might want to revisit this, if for no other reason, to ask ourselves: is cheap labor really that important for us to keep our immigration laws unenforced?
At last, that debate is going on NOW in the Congress, and the arguments I am hearing do not make much sense. The intractable unasked question remains...can 12 million illegal aliens in the U.S. be deported? The real question should be….will Mexico let us send them back? If the answer to that is NO, perhaps we should consider converting NAVBASE Guantanamo to America's Devil's Island (remember the story of Papillon in French Guiana?)...at least for those illegals in our local jails, which (the Sheriffs tell me….) we cannot continue to detain under current immigration law.
Before we dismiss this illegal immigration matter again because it is too hard, let me remind you President Eisenhower took on the same issue during the first year of his Presidency (1953). He was concerned enough to bring back on active duty a tough Army General of his long-time acquaintance, who spearheaded Operation Wetback...and it was SUCCESSFUL in deporting 1 million illegals. Maybe the difference between then and now is, Ike was so popular that both the Democrats and Republicans wanted him as their candidate for President, and it was the first year of his first term.
I liked Ike too. I marched in his Inaugural Parade in WASHDC as a Plebe at the U.S. Naval Academy. I was SO PROUD to be there. It was a very cold day in January, and we wore the strangest Navy uniform combination I had ever seen, and have ever seen since: overcoats and white canvas leggings. It reminded me of some specie of waterbirds with a large body and very skinny legs. In contrast, the West Point Corps of Cadets was festooned with their traditional gold chevrons and feathers….quite elegant in contrast, but we might have been warmer. All of us carried functional M1 Garand combat rifles for the whole distance from South Capitol Street to several blocks beyond the White House on Pennsylvania Avenue. Ike was bareheaded on the Reviewing Stand at the White House; I also caught a glimpse of Omar Bradley in uniform when we did "EYES...LEFT!" It seems like only yesterday...but now I am digressing badly...another sign of aging, I suppose. Bye for now.

ALL EUROPEAN LIFE DIED IN AUSCHWITZ "**
By Sebastian Vilar Rodrigez
I walked down the street in Barcelona, and suddenly discovered a terrible truth - Europe died in Auschwitz. We killed six million Jews and replaced them with 20 million Muslims. In Auschwitz, we burned a culture, thought, creativity and talent. We destroyed the chosen people, truly chosen, because they produced great and wonderful people who changed the world. The contribution of this people is felt in all areas of life: science, art, international trade, and above all, as the conscience of the world. These are the people we burned. And under the pretense of tolerance, and because we wanted to prove to ourselves that we were cured of the disease of racism, we opened our gates to 20 million Muslims, who brought us stupidity and ignorance, religious extremism and lack of tolerance, crime and poverty due to an unwillingness to work and support their families with pride. They have turned our beautiful Spanish cities into the third world, drowning in filth and crime.
Shut up in the apartments they receive free from the government, they plan the murder and destruction of their native hosts. And thus, in our misery, we have exchanged culture for fanatical hatred; creative skill for destructive skill; intelligence for backwardness and superstition. We have exchanged the pursuit of peace of the Jews of Europe and their talent for hoping for a better future for their children, their determined clinging to life because life is holy, for those who pursue death, for people consumed by the desire for death for themselves and others, for our children and theirs. What a terrible mistake was made by miserable Europe.
