The blame America mentality on the left is….well it’s NEVERENDING. Everything the U.S. does is wrong….everything. We are to blame for the entire world’s ills. No, I’m not kidding.
And I’m sick and tired of it.
The war we gave Mexico
Early in the last century, near the end of his 34 bloody years in power, the aging Mexican strongman Porfirio Diaz mused that his country’s great misfortune was to be located “so far from God and so near the United States.”
Many fear that Mexico could be sliding into civil instability because of the cartels’ increasing willingness to use violence and bribery to protect their business. It’s an old story in other parts of Latin America, and for that reason, three of the region’s former heads of state — including onetime Mexican President Ernesto Zedillo – recently issued a report urging the U.S. to consider legalizing at least marijuana. Fat chance.
Mexico is a complex country with a resourceful and creative people. It also is — like other Latin American nations ravaged by the drug trade– burdened with a stunted civil society, chronic maldistribution of wealth, ingrained corruption and endemic political violence. These pathologies have made it painfully susceptible to the social and economic distortions created by America’s seemingly insatiable desire for drugs.
If Americans really are concerned about the horrific toll inflicted by Mexico’s narco-gangsters, we need to ask some tough questions about our own cultural and political delusions.
The LA Times writer, Mr. Tim Rutten, needs to ponder this: If a child grows up to be a drug trafficker, a felon, a life-long criminal and/or a VICIOUS EVIL MURDERER….how in the hell is that America’s fault?
If you’re looking for the moral highground, you leftwing dolt, why not start with the disintegration of the Mexican family, the breakdown of Mexican society, and the dysfunctional Mexican PARENTS who raised these murdering psychopaths?
So let me see if I understand Mr. Rutten’s brilliant dissertation. Okay, soooooooo…..someone in America wants to get high- and he’s willing to pay for it. And because he wants to get high….drug dealers and traffickers down in Juarez or Acapulco or Cancun decide to maim, murder, and behead civilians, government officials, and police – yep, makes perfect sense.
I’ve decided, the synapse wiring in liberals- must look like telephone lines in a third world country.
With such wit and syllogistic acuity, it’s a wonder he hasn’t won a Pulitzer.
