04/22/07 - A Reader Doesn`t Like Being Called Ignorant By The USCCB

From: Roger Lucheta [email]

In following the Alberto Gonzales matter, it occurred to me that he should pull the "cultural defense". The media have identified Gonzales repeatedly as a Mexican ("Hispanic") rather than as an American, and he has not objected.

Given that dirty politics, cronyism, and corruption are the very essence of his country`s approach to governance, why doesn`t he just pull the cultural defense? (For an interesting example of this in Germany, read the May, 2007 issue of Chronicles, where a German judge ruled that wife-beating is o.k. for Mohammedans, since the Koran justifies it.) [Germany Cites Koran in Rejecting Divorce, By Mark Landler, New York Times, March 22, 2007)]  Who knows, maybe the Mexican Consulate will send someone to defend him!

VDARE.com Note: Alberto Gonzales was born in Texas, and Hispanic activist think he`s neither disloyal nor anti-American enough to suit them. [See Alberto Gonzales and the Politics of Whiteness, on the ¡Para Justicia y Libertad! Blog. (Send them mail)] But he meets our standards. For disloyalty, that is.
