Jan Brewer "Kinder, Gentler" on Immigration? Republic Dons Kneepads for Governor
Kinder and gentler, my ass...
As the Arizona Republic was bleeding ink for Governor Jan Brewer's allegedly "kinder, gentler tone" on immigration over the weekend, what was Janbo up to?
Raising cash for her political action committee JANPAC by beating the anti-immigrant drum.
A January 17, fundraising e-mail from our scorpion-scarfing chief exec reads, in part:
"Arizona and our citizens deserve a federal government that devotes its time and attention to issues that the people deem important. Please help us demand that the federal government commit to a secure border FIRST before addressing immigration reform. Donate $10 now towards assuring our nation has a secure border!"
Nah, forget all that: the Mexicans are coming, the Mexicans are coming!
So give and give generously.
Profiting off the sufferings of the people you help repress, the true definition of scum...
This is the real Jan Brewer, the two-bit hack who, with the assistance of her clever puppetmaster Chuck Coughlin, rode a tide of bigotry, xenophobia and nativism to the Ninth Floor.
In 2010, Coughlin told her to sign Arizona's ethnic cleansing legislation Senate Bill 1070, and she would be elected Guv.
She did, and she was.
She also signed the House Bill 2281, which effectively outlawed the Mexican American Studies program in Tucson.
And like many a crass, political opportunist in racist, far-right Arizona, she's never missed an opportunity to stir up ethnic animus, slander the undocumented, and help give this state the reputation it deserves as "Aribama," the state of hate, the methlab of democracy, the great white pride of the neo-Confederacy.
