PRESIDENTE VICENTE FOX POPS OFF ABOUT U.S. EXTREMISTS

Matt Drudge links to this galling story, in which Mexico's Presidente Vicente Fox has the audacity to take umbrage at the "anti-immigrant sentiment" building in the United States, characterizing some citizen group efforts to stop the veritable flood of Mexican illegals as "extremist." This is the same guy who is encouraging emigration with a government-published how-to guide for illegals. The man has a lot of nerve. Of course, President Bush has rolled over and played dead for him for all too long now, so no wonder Fox is full of himself and threatening lawsuits. Meanwhile, American property owners along our long, contiguous, all-too-porous border with Mexico have had enough and who can blame them? Their frustration builds as they're obliged to pay taxes to fund a Department of Homeland Security that refuses to secure our nation's borders and despite the fact that terrorists are infiltrating our country via Mexico.

So let's get the fences and walls up, beef up the U.S. Border Patrol, bring in National Guard troops to assist them if need be, and begin playing hardball with Senior Fox and his corrupt regime. And we voters had better begin playing hardball at the polling places and send those in Washington who won't secure our borders into retirement from so-called "public service."

And, finally, may I remind the Harvard-educated El Presidente of Arizona Senator Barry Goldwater's famous words that should have been heeded by American voters:

"I would remind you that extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice. And let me remind you also that moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue." (San Francisco, July 16, 1964)
We ought to put up large, lighted billboards all along our border, facing Mexico, and with Barry Goldwater's patriotic words in Espaniol.
