Illegal supporter? What the hell does that even mean?


It means you, who'd support illegals over people who don't support illegals.

You seriously believe that when the police put out a bulletin on possible suspects after a robbery, that is similar to the general idea behind racial profiling? So in your mind, the idea behind trying to describe a SPECIFIC INDIVIDUAL doesn't play into it at all? That seems monumentally stupid on your part.


It's the same idea as going after a "5'10" man with dark complexion and brown eyes wearing blue jeans in the vicinity of...." which is frequently the description given on the news when they're after "a specific individual".


No...it definitely is NOT "the same idea".

Yeah, it is. Except in the one, they're profiling black men and in the other, they're profiling hispanics. Especially since most news edits don't give a specific height, they say "medium build" and such.

So, would the AZ bill be okay with you if they only went after "medium build" type people who might have committed the CRIME of ILLEGALLY crossing our borders?

If you want to make a cogent point, you're really going to have to stop contradicting yourself.

You're going to have to better explain how giving a description that is aimed at a specific individual is in any way the same as reacting to a general profile without a specific search being in place. Because so far, you've failed to do so.

The irony is so thick you could cut it with a knife. I can at least figure out the difference between an actual individual suspect and a broad group of people.

Maybe you can, Woodie, but apparently you missed, again, the part where anyone in a specific area is stopped in case they just *might* be there about drugs, whether they've been known to do anything suspicious or not; similar to anyone in the area of AZ being stopped because they're in an area where they *might* have crossed borders illegally, whether they've been known to do anything suspicious or not.

I haven't you hollaring about how it's an infringement of personal liberty to stop people and ask for id or what they're doing in an area generally prone to drugs...nope, you didn't hollar then, not until it's about cracking down on criminal illegals. So, again, you're saying it's okay when it's anti-drugs, but not okay when it's anti-illegals.

I'm confused as to why you would presume I'm ok with it being done as regards drugs. Do you make a habit of creating shit out of whole cloth, or did you just decide to build a strawman to throw at me only this one time?

I haven't seen you say that you are against the idea of children being mutilated by intelligent Russian-speaking lab rats, so clearly you're in favor of it...see how that works?

That isn't even the law (contact/suspicion). It's only implemented when someone has already been pulled over or approached for a different crime, and after that it mirrors the federal law to the T.

The difference is, I'm not making hollow-straw arguments about the rights of children or lab rats being violated by making a law that enables the police to do something to find those committing a crime to begin with. I don't support lab bunnies or monkeys mutilating children, either, and I wouldn't be offended by an officer asking any them for identification to determine if they're one of those mutilators.

The hell you're not...that's exactly what you're doing. You're making shit up and then claiming I'm in favor of it, dishonest f*ck that you are. Then you're stupid enough to whine about me doing the same thing in a clearly sarcastic manner...unless, of course, you really do believe that there are intelligent Russian-speaking lab rats who are mutilating children.

you guys are arguing over something that does not exist. It almost seems progressives are DEMANDING that there be racial profiling, because this just doesn't make sense and is plain insane.

Why does race make people crazy? I thought to overcome racial differences, we can start by completely ignoring the race of whichever person is in question. Why do progressives always introduce race? Why do they focus on it? Why do they talk about it constantly?

Scotty, I'm simply responding to the bullshit that stahr is spouting about me specifically. She has made a statement about ME...I'm certainly going to respond to it.

As well, she's making statements about racial profiling that don't even make sense. As far as I'm concerned, we're speaking OUTSIDE of the specific Arizona Immigration Law...we're into definitions now.

I know, trying to steer the topic back on course, although the "racial hype of 2010" may be fizzling....

Obama just met the AZ governor though. I hear she told the president to "start siding with the American People"

You've been sniffing again, I see.

As I said, my points make sense to others, whether they agree with the points or not. My points also actually occur, unlike yours (except in your fantasies after the sniffing).

But to explain again...

That the big bad ol' policeman is targeting someone to ask them for identification in Arizona is no different than the big bad ol' policeman targeting someone in an area known for drugs, to ask them for identification; or to target all people who might look like someone, in case they might be the perpetrator of a different sort of crime than illegally crossing borders.

It's not much different than pulling everyone they want to over on the side of a road at 3 a.m. in case they're drinking and driving; or suddenly creating and enforcing curfews in disaster areas so that residents must show identification to drive in the area (not all residents; I was waived through, still don't know why). In other words, it's law enforcement asking everyone they want to, to show some evidence that they're not doing some specifically-targeted illegal activity.

It's not racist, it's anti-crime; anti- a specific, targeted crime. It's simply that in Arizona, they currently want to target the crime of illegal immigration.
