    No matter how right you are, comparing your opponents to the Nazis is always wrong.

    That didn't stop Ald. Danny Solis from drawing an unseemly comparison between Arizona and the Third Reich during Wednesday’s emotional City Council debate on a resolution to boycott Arizona because of its new illegal immigration law.

    “In the early stages of Nazi Germany, there was a law that identified particular groups of people," Solis said in criticizing the Arizona immigration law. "This law has identified a particular group of people. This law is evil.”
    The resolution, which passed 46-3, was sponsored by four Latino aldermen: George Cardenas, Ariel Reboyras, Ray Suarez and Ricardo Munoz. One by one they condemned the law as an attack on their people, but none used a comparison as incendiary as Solis.

    Ald. Roberto Maldonado accused Arizona of passing a law “to legalize racial profiling, which is a politically correct way of legalizing racial discrimination.”

    And Ald. George Cardenas said Arizona’s law has divided the country -- 70 percent of Americans approve, but 80 percent of Hispanics oppose. That opposition led them to pass the symbolic resolution.

    “We’re not telling another state what to do,” said Ald. Proco “Joe” Moreno. “We are reacting to what another state has done. We are responding to racially discriminatory laws in one of our states.”

    The only three alderman in opposition were James Balcer, Brian Doherty and Michael Zalewski.

    Balcer represents Bridgeport, which once literally built a wall -- the Dan Ryan Expressway -- to keep out minorities. While noting that 111 immigrants have died in Iraq and Afghanistan, he said that “those who have stood in line [to emigrate] must not be jumped over” and argued that the boycott would only hurt the poor people in Arizona: the hospitality workers, the maids, the gardeners.”

    Brian Doherty, the Council’s only Republican, noted that his parents were immigrants -- from Ireland -- then told the story of a Kenyan gang leader who was arrested 26 times in Chicago after his visa expired, and finally ordered the murder of a rival.

    “I do not believe that we should announce a boycott of a sovereign state for handling problems that are different from ours,” Doherty said.
    Even if we do, we shouldn’t call them Nazis.

    It is amazing how many times these Latin Americans use the word "nazi" when Americans defend their borders.

    Considering that the cowardly Latin American stayed out of both World Wars (except Brazil) and have no idea what a real nazi was because they hid behind their borders and refused to fight them.

    :lol:

    Godwins law:

    1. As a conversation goes on, the chance that Nazi's will be brought up approaches 100%

    2. The side that brings up nazis usually is the one that is losing.

    Also know as agrumentum ad hitlerum.

    It's the popular thing to do.

    The hippies turned thier backs on the Greatest Generation, WW2 Vets are few and far between. So first hand knowledge is fading and the people that should have listened to the stories were busy getting high.

    So calling someone a commie or a nazi is like calling someone an asshole. It has little meaning since the user lacks the intelect to describe his feelings.

    AZ wants to protect it's people from criminals by making it harder for criminals to live in their state. They are not taking them off to be murdered.

    Libs are just screwed up in the head.

    *achoo-readingcomprehentionchallenged-excuseme*

    The Medal of Honor was created during the American Civil War and is the highest military decoration presented by the United States government to a member of its armed forces

    You have to be an American. He is clearly talking about the countries that stayed out.

    Jon Stewart is a talented comedian...a very funny and entertaining guy. The only thing funnier than Stewart is intelligent folks like you getting your political perspective from ....a comedian.

    What I can't figure out is how you passed up Danny Kaye as your mentor???

    maybe he was speaking of countries, but that isn't what he SAID. He said that Latin Americans were cowardly and didn't participate in the World Wars

    That's not what he said at all.

    "Considering that the cowardly Latin American stayed out of both World Wars (except Brazil)"

    That's what he said.

    Is Brazil an American person that went to war or is it a Latin American country.
