Foley only fooling fellow liberals

DEAR EDITOR: Liberals have little in the way of facts, but a great deal of mindless attacks to peddle. I quit reading Kevin Foley’s column on “Contrasting Conventions” (Sept. 7 MDJ) when I reached the part where he writes: “We met Julian Castro, the dynamic young mayor of San Antonio who told of his family’s fierce determination to make it in their adopted country. ‘My mother fought hard for civil rights so that instead of a mop, I could hold this microphone,’ Castro declared.”

While I don’t suffer from the guilt for being a white American as Foley seems to, and not that I have any hope that it will change his view, a little injection of fact that may help other readers understand him and the rest of the Open Borders left is in order. Foley’s use of the term “anti-immigration” is an indicator of the endless effort to redefine the language to suit the leftist agenda. He rails against the ideals of the majority of Americans who demand that we actually enforce our immigration laws by labeling those of us who stand up for secure borders and enforcement as “anti-immigration.”

This is straight out of the La Raza handbook on “how to” marginalize anyone who gets in their way. Illegal aliens are not immigrants and honoring our immigration system by enforcing immigration laws is not “anti-immigration.” And Foley isn’t fooling anyone but other liberals.

At our house, where my wife is a proud immigrant — which by definition means she is here legally — we honor real immigrants. We know the USA takes in more than one million legal immigrants each year. More than any nation in the world. It is knee-jerk liberals like Foley who are truly the “antis.” He is anti-enforcement if it will keep Comrade Obama in power. We also know that pandering to the un-American loons in the open borders lobby may buy some votes, but it is ruining our country.

We look forward to when Foley rails against Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) for being “anti-automobile.”

A short education on the Mayor of San Antonio Julian Castro mentioned by Foley will help other readers as well. Along with his twin, Joaquin, who is currently running for Congress, the Castro boys learned their politics on their mother’s knee. Their mother helped found a radical, anti-white, socialist Chicano party called La Raza Unida (literally “The Race United”) a separatist group unsuccessfully camouflaged as a “civil rights” effort which sought to create a separate country in the American Southwest.

Castro’s mother helps manage her sons’ political careers. Far from denouncing her radical politics, he sees them as his inspiration. While not as radical as Obama, Castro sounds just like someone Foley will soon support for higher office.

I enjoyed reading htis letter! Oh, Kevin. Remember when you wrote that Allen West and the Tea Party were against blacks? Then you found out West IS a black American? Or when you argued with D.A. about Obama's amnesty being an Executive Order and were proven wrong and had to apologize and make excuses? Or when you called DA and most of Cobb County racists because we use the legal term "illegal aliens" for illegal aliens? Kevin, don't you remember these and so many other "facts" you invent? Because I do.

Oh, Kevin. You don't realize that you are the go-to goat at the newspaper do you Kevin and a walking joke in Cobb, do you Kevin? D.A. King has written that you are an "empty suit." He nailed it Kevin.

Terrific letter Mr. Litland! THANK YOU!

You are correct Mr. Litland.

Foley simply regurgitatates the liberal talking points fomented by Media Matters, George Soros and the like and holds them out as facts.

They subscribe to the mantra of: "If you say something often enough many people will start accepting it as fact."

Unfortunately it works on those who refuse to listen to or believe the real facts.

Mr. Litland, if you're going to charge me with writing columns that have "little in the way of facts," then you have me confused with a couple of other MDJ opionators that come to mind.

Why don't you tell us what facts I have wrong?

Foley I wouldn't doubt that you have the facts of life incorrect you are such a chauvinist for Obama.

You and Larry Sinclair are Obama's top fans.
