07/02/11 - An Irish-American Encourages Us To Continue Our Pictorial Policies—One Bikini Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words Of Wonkery

From: Ryan Kennedy (e-mail him)

Regarding that documentary Brenda Walker blogged about.  This is part of a larger trend I've noticed.  The usual suspects have been trying to turn 4th of July into Immigration Day. The subtext being that immigration is inherently patriotic and part of the American tradition and of course being against it is unpatriotic. 

In my town a few years ago various "communities" entered floats in the 4th of July parade.  On each float they wore their respective national dress and waved THEIR flags, not the US flag.  A lot of people noticed this and wrote letters to the editor and talked about it on local talk radio.  They never did it again.

Ryan Kennedy (email him) has written us many letters and articles. He lives in Anchorage, Alaska.
