Count on the failing Arizona Republic to ensure its even more rapid demise. The troubled, Hillary-endorsing newspaper appears unable to control itself, even when its own existence is at stake. Today’s spew from the “editorial board” following the El Paso massacre is a case in point. The headline, “Trump cannot help El Paso heal; his words ensured that,” blames the President for the senseless killing spree committed by an obviously troubled, 21-year-old domestic terrorist. His actions were replicated within hours at a bar in Dayton, Ohio, by another young murderer who also gunned down his own sister.
The newspaper devoted a nearly full page report to printing the names and bios of five of the six Mexican national victims — one remains unidentified — among the 20 killed in El Paso. American citizens rated no such coverage.
Topping the disingenuous tripe passing for an editorial are these words: Trump’s use of ‘invasion’ to describe Mexican-American immigrants created an atmosphere of hate.
Let’s cut to the chase. America is being invaded. When hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens caravan into our sovereign nation, it is nothing short of an invasion. Actual immigrants use our generous system to gain legal access to our country. Those who breach our border in violation of our laws have neither respect nor love for the United States. If they truly seek asylum, Central Americans would claim it in Mexico, the first country they enter. But Mexico doesn’t offer the benefits they can readily access in the USA, nor does it want them.
The editorial’s online version extensively quotes Peter Simi a Trump-hating liberal associate professor of sociology at Chapman University — currently working on a book examining the domestic front in the “war on terror” boorishly titled: “Sting: Inside the FBI’s Provocation of Terror.”
Simi failed miserably attempting to link the Trump administration to connections with and effect on white supremacists and neo-Nazi propaganda. He added that Trump senior advisor Stephen Miller followed and retweeted David Duke, omitting the fact that Miller, a descendant of Russian immigrants escaping persecution in the early 1900’s, is Jewish, hardly a Nazi sympathizer.
Simi deceptively rants, “Normally, when someone from the Republican party is elected President, they’re probably not going to receive a lot of active support from white supremacists. White supremacists over the years have become disconnected from mainstream politics. With Trump, it seems to have galvanized them and given them some hope for being able to utilize the system.”
“There’s this pot that’s been simmering, and he pulled the lid off and gave permission in some ways for people to act on their angers, frustration, fears, xenophobia, racism, anti-Semitism and everything else.”
In his blatant attempt to link President Trump to anti-Semitism, this agendized goon neglects crucial points. Trump is the loving father, father-in-law and grandfather of orthodox Jews, Ivanka, her husband Jared Kushner and their three children. He is a resolute supporter of Israel, following through on his campaign promise to support moving the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, Israel’s capital, and has maintained a strong relationship with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who leads the lone democracy in the Middle East. To no one’s surprise, Simi never mentions the anti-Semitic spew that routinely emanates from members of the radical Democrat freshman congressional members now known as “The Squad.”
The desperate Arizona Republic, now a homeless vagrant on borrowed time, is dying, vomiting lies with its last gasps and shamelessly providing cover to others of its ilk. Save your money and sanity. If you are among the dwindling number of subscribers, ditch the newspaper, which is nothing more than a purveyor of deception.
