Krazy Kris Kobach And His Crusade
The PBS Homeland: Immigration In America series was probably one of their best.
We've talked about the Kansas City Community Policing aspect of this story . . .
But the politics and political chatter/theater is always more entertaining and what's really driving the debate.
To wit . . .
Check out KCPT's Immigration special profiling Krazy Kris Kobach:
Homeland: National Crusader
Of course a great many of you d-bags might agree with his opinion . . . But look just a bit more closely.
The towering, articulate and well-educated political hopeful is trumpeting his message to a nearly empty ballpark of losers and bored Senior Citizens. And then he's broadcasting from a dank, cramped and cluttered tiny broadcast booth that doesn't even belong to him. I don't doubt Kobach's passion but the video did a great job putting his losing fight and niche message in perspective.
While Kobach has picked up some big checks in his immigration battle . . . The fact is that the GOP and most of mainstream America has turned away from the Mexican deportation crusade.
Perspective . . .
The KCPT Special also provides a look at one of the undocumented workers Kobach would like to deport and the dude is harmless, working a hard job and raising American kids:
There's always the tired old argument . . . "What part of illegal don't you understand?" Despite the fact that crossing the border without documentation is merely a federal misdemeanor and more akin to jaywalking than most people would like to think.
Let's also remember that Kobach has been mostly unsuccessful in his legal attempt to make life harder on the undocumented . . . Which begs the question: "What part of unconstitutional don't you understand?
Still . . . What's always fun for TKC is to watch so many hypocrite conservatives who might tout "small government" in certain circumstances until they eventually give in to nanny state hype when confronted with the prospect of brown people. In the end, very few people really trust a free and open market for labor or anything else.
Yet, in the long run and through the course of human history . . . Governments, walls and/or laws have never been able to control population shifts over the long term. In reality the debate over immigration has never been about security and has always been more of a response to the U.S. slowly changing color.
