AZ Gov loses
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.
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
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?
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
good white people are being beheaded by those
Does she hate darkies that much?
That she'd trade tourist dollars to smite them?
