AZ Gov loses her head


Governor Jan Brewer has lost her head.

The Arizona governor, seemingly determined to repel every last tourist dollar from her pariah state, 
has sounded a new alarm about border violence. "Our law enforcement agencies have found bodies 
in the desert either buried or just lying out there that have been beheaded," she announced on local television.

Ay, caramba! 

Those dark-skinned foreigners are now severing the heads of fair-haired Americans? 
Maybe they're also scalping them or shrinking them or putting them on a spike.

But those in fear of losing parts north of the neckline can relax. 
There's not a follicle of evidence to support Brewer's claim.

The Arizona Guardian Web site checked with medical examiners in Arizona's border counties 
and the coroners said they had never seen an immigration-related beheading. I called and e-mailed 
Brewer's press office requesting documentation of decapitation; no reply.

Brewer's mindlessness about headlessness is just one of the immigration falsehoods being spread 
by Arizona politicians. Border violence on the rise? Phoenix becoming the world's No. 2 kidnapping capital? 
Illegal immigrants responsible for most police killings? The majority of those crossing the border are drug mules? 

All wrong.

This matters, because it means the entire premise of the Arizona immigration law is a fallacy. 
Arizona officials say they've had to step in because federal officials aren't doing enough to stem 
increasing border violence. The scary claims of violence, in turn, explain why the American 
public supports the Arizona crackdown. 

Why would a governor who wants more tourism announce that 
good white people are being beheaded by those awful beaners?

Does she hate darkies that much?  
That she'd trade tourist dollars to smite them?
