Jan Brewer on Blast at United Nations Periodic Review, by Arizona ACLU and Sal Reza

Reza in Geneva, where he's telling the world about human rights abuses in Arizona

I'm anticipating a silly press release from Governor Jan "We Have Did" Brewer's camp tomorrow condemning the U.S. State Department, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and the United Nations, as well as the New World Order and the Bilderbergers, if her scribes can work those last two into the text.

See, Friday in Geneva, Switzerland, the United States will undergo its first ever Universal Periodic Review of its human rights record by the United Nations Human Rights Council. And you can bet Arizona's breathing-while-brown law SB 1070, and immigration in general, will be topics of discussion.

In fact, the ACLU of Arizona's Alessandra Soler Meetz and Phoenix civil rights leader Salvador Reza of the group Puente are both in Geneva as I type, hammering home the injustices experienced by the immigrant community here in Sand Land and beyond.

Reza will actually give a five minute presentation as part of the three-hour long review. His testimony is expected to include a discussion of 1070. 

(Correction: Reza told me upon his return that he addressed a side conference, not the Human Rights Council itself. Sorry for any confusion.)

For her part, Meetz is a member of an ACLU delegation sent to Geneva to monitor the proceedings, which are being held at the regal Palais des Nations, home to the United Nations' Geneva office.

You may recall Brewer's PR stunt from late August, where she slammed Secretary of State Clinton because the State Department's report to the U.N. Human Rights Council briefly mentions the flap over 1070.

In a hissy-fit of fake outrage, our hillbilly governor called the mention "downright offensive," and claimed that the report was "internationalism run amok" and somehow "unconstitutional." 

Unconstitutional? Um, coming from the lady who signed 1070 into law, I'd say that's a case of pot-kettle-black.

The offending paragraph in the U.S. report is actually pretty low-key, in contrast to Brewer's hysteria. It reads,

"A recent Arizona law, S.B. 1070, has generated significant attention and debate at home and around the world. The issue is being addressed in a court action that argues that the federal government has the authority to set and enforce immigration law. That action is ongoing; parts of the law are currently enjoined."

All of which is a statement of fact. Moreover, not mentioning 1070 would simply have drawn attention to the omission. Everyone already knows Arizona is a bigot's paradise. Hell, Russell Pearce is now running this state, for cryin' out loud.

All members of the United Nations have to undergo a human rights review every four years. It's mandatory. I know, I know, most wingnuts think we shouldn't even be in the U.N. But then, they don't believe in public schools or evolution, either.

Now that Brewer's been elected, maybe her Svengali Chuck Coughlin and her PR-meister Paul Senseman won't feel the need to pull a stunt over this. Because if they'd really wanted to go hog wild, they would have shipped Brewer off to Geneva with a bottle of scotch so she could pull a brain freeze before the international community. 

Still, it doesn't take much effort to pen a wacko press release. I'll be really disappointed if they don't churn one out.

AZ 1070 is the BEST!! I was standing 3 years in the INS line to get my permanent residency card. Why do YOU think any Pancho Villa deserve better. There are laws - those who are illegal should be deported and I for fact applaud the fact that crime is way down in Phoenix since Hernandez- Ramirez and Gonzales are gone!! Please try it the legal way - and STOP PROMOTING the unjustifiably as you do in your Paper!!!

Some Associates know or are learning Spanish. One guy in Phoenix wrote,

" "Usadefender Daniel," "Rob," and "'Lupo,"

Muchas graicias por la leccione espanol.

We always recommend that pro-enforcement people learn Spanish and get to know their illegal alien enemies better than the wetbaqks know themselves.

For the folks who don't know Spanish, Old Rob tells Usadefender Daniel that he's a DOG controlled by others, and Usadefender Daniel accuses Rob of not having papers! Usadefender Daniel's telling the the illegals that they should be happy because the gringos are giving them their "40 acres and a mule." In other words, don't bite the hand that feeds you, wetbacks.

These American Latinos and Paisas (o Indoumentados) ABSOLUTELY DESPISE EACH OTHER Who needs Russell Pearce? (( - :"

Now this Associate is trying to sell us translation software, but we won't buy it.

Oh Please there isn't even any comparison to what is going on here to some of the awful things going on in places all over the world. I don't remember being rounded up to go to the Latino work camp or having my arm chopped off for being part of the wrong tribe.

The American people support SB 1070 3 to 1. What don't you get morons get? That's the way democracy works. The majority wins. Sal is nothing more than a racists pretending to actually care. He is just looking for his 15 minutes of fame and is getting it. So what? Eventually just like those nutjobs Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton he to will soon go away. It's just a matter of time.

Blindtimon,

Hago la lucha para mi y mi familia. La verdad es que nadie de mi familia o de las familias de mis amigos hemos sido victimas de ningun acto de racismo. Son puras mentiras! Si fueramos victimas de los blancos no podriamos salir a trabajar, ir al cine, llevar a nuestros hijos a la escuela o cualquier otra cosa. Tu te lo cres pero de seguro sabes que tengo razon. Pideles a tus amiguitos Democratas que te den tu mula y 40 acres!!! Tu no quieres libertada ni que tu juzguen por tus habilidades porque te has convertido en el Chihuahua de los que te controlan!

(Translation for the non-Spanish readers)

I fight for my family. The truth is that no one in my family or in the families of my friends have we been victims of any act of racism. Pure lies! If we were victims of the Whites we could not go out to work, to the movies, take our kids to school or anything else. You believe this but probably know I right. Ask your Democrat friends for a mule and 40 acres!!! You don’t want freedom nor for people to judge you on your abilities because you have become the Chihuahua of those who control you.

Usadefender Daniel: You are the one that Hispanics are laughing about. You are just a puppet and you don't even realize it. And when facts are written (like this article), you respond with the dumbest, uneducated words to get back just like the real bully that you are. You are pathetic and should be ashamed of yourself.

Kudos to Sal Reza for fighting all the bigots in Arizona.

This is a wonderful effort by a dedicated team of civil rights leaders. It is time to reveal the abuses in the US and the role of SB 1070. Go Sal!

This came from TheClassWest@gmail.com and The Class West Associates thanked "Usadefender Daniel" for the support,

"To THE ACLU AZ (www.ACLUAZ.org) , ALLESANDRA SOLER MEETZE (ameetze@acluaz.org), ANNIE LAI (alai@acluaz.org), and ALL, One of our people sent us this about SAL REZA appearing at the U.N. HUMAN RIGHTS REVIEW in Geneva. Please seehttp://blogs.phoenixnewtimes.c...

This guy is REALLY BAD PR for any lost cause you are trying to advance. Did you get him to take his YEARLY SHOWER so he wouldn't offend the SWISS or possibly get thrown out in the snow? Just give up. The Bible (which you don't believe in) has prophesied that your New World Order agenda will lose. There will be NO WORLD GOVERNMENT, and there is nothing you can do to make it happen. Have you all considered JUST GETTING REAL JOBS?"

We can't repeat some of the "off the records" comments made about Mr. Reza, but it's clear that he is severely disliked by many pro-enforcement people, who claim that he "wussied out" and checked into protective custody when he was arrested by the MCSO.
