Welcome Tamerlan Tsarnaev!—But You’re Outta here Elian Gonzalez!


On April 22nd, 2000 the U.S. Dept. of Justice violated the U.S. constitution at the whim and behest of a Stalinist dictator that the very U.S. Dept. of State officially condemns as a “State Sponsor of Terror.”

All that stomping and macing and firepower in the dawn hours of April 22, 2000 horrified and enraged many people for sure – it also amazed. Why such overkill? Why such “Shock and Awe,” many wondered?

Well, it appears that those INS agents genuinely feared that they were on a mission fraught with deadly peril from massive firepower. Fidel Castro himself, you see, had confided to his friend Bill Clinton via his lawyer friend Gregory Craig that Lazaro Gonzalez’ house was crammed with typical Cuban-American right-wing maniacs, all heavily armed, foaming at the mouth, and ready to rumble. The Gonzalez home could well start spewing the same firepower against American freedom-fighters as did the monastery atop Monte Cassino Italy in 1944.

Given that American liberals pretty much share Castro’s view of American citizens of Cuban heritage, the Stalinist dictator’s warning was warmly received –and scrupulously acted-upon.

But it turned out that the only blasting that morning came from mace and tear gas into the faces of ladies holding infants and rosaries.

“Excessive force” by U.S. Government agents is frightening for sure...But a U.S. Justice Dept. that accepted the word of a State Sponsor of Terror whose lifelong dream is to nuke the U.S. (Fidel Castro) over that of lawful U.S. citizens (Cuban-Americans who claimed that from day one Fidel Castro was the one orchestrating Elian’s return)—such action by a federal agency should really give more U.S. citizens more pause.

Our friends at Townhall help disseminate items that provoke mostly frowns and yawns outside Miami-Dade.

(Pero fijense que tipo mas DESCARA'O(!!!) este Fontova!..en el titulo le pone el nombre Tamerlan Tsarnaev--pero el articulo tiene nada--NADITA!!!--que ver con este terrorista--el SINVERGUENZON(!!!) Fontova lo pone simplemente para atraer (y enganjar) a los lectores Americanos!)

    If the US government violates the US Constitution, but the MSM chooses to look the other way, did the violation really happen, practically purposes? The answer, regardless of how we feel about it, is NO. Same goes, in principle, for the Gosnell abortion trial or anything else the media chooses to ignore, dismiss or downplay. And make no mistake about it, the MSM is absolutely compromised, which is a polite way of saying corrupt. It simply tailors its coverage, or lack thereof, to its blatantly obvious political and ideological agenda, which is clearly leftist, socialist or "progressive." Welcome to postmodern "journalism."

    I meant "did the violation really happen, for all practical purposes?"
