More Lies From Mesa North (And Elsewhere)
SOMETIMES YOU GOTTA DO...
You know, I really don't like writing about the author of the CM PRESS blog, but sometimes - most of the time - the stuff he spews just flat-out demands a response.
Take today, for example. In his #500, "New Study Says Boot Illegals And You Boot Gangs!", The Mouth From Mesa North cites as the authority for his premise a report from the Center for Immigration Studies, and provides a link to its "report".
EXAMINING THE SOURCE
So, I visited the site, read the report, then did a little investigation of the organization. It comes as no surprise that this organization has been linked to many far-right groups, including several that advocate white supremacist views. It publishes it's "reports" in what appears to be a scholarly manner on a slick web site and claims to be objective. However, if one takes the time to read some of these reports it becomes clear that this group is an anti-immigrant organization, pure and simple. Its handiwork panders to the radical right, who use it to justify overt racist actions. The CIS has been widely criticized for it's body of work and many of it's officials have direct ties to organizations supporting the White Supremacist view of the world.
BIAS IS OBVIOUS
And, sometimes, their reports border on the ridiculous. Take, for example, their recent report, Immigration to the United States and World-Wide Greenhouse Gas Emissions, in which they tell us that immigration is responsible for Global Warming! Good grief! As I plowed through this voluminous tome I half-expected to find a sub-title stating, "Immigrants Pass Gas, Melt Ice Cap!"
UNDERSTAND HIS TACTICS
Just remember, dear friends, that it's important to consider the source when considering what is written on the CM Press. Understand that the author is far from an objective purveyor of truth - he's an overt racist and the thread of white supremacy runs through almost everything he writes. He takes the content of his radical views published at several venues on the web and massages them for local consumption in an attempt to manipulate his readers and the politicians he influences to follow his lead.
UNDERSTAND HIS MOTIVES
His endorsement of candidates for city council is clearly made to advance his goal of making our city the "whitest" place on earth. Conversely, those candidates he criticizes pose a threat to his attempt expunge every non-white face from our city (and country, for that matter).
ARE HIS CHOICES RACISTS?
Am I saying those candidates he endorses are racists? No, I'm not. What I am saying, though, is that he apparently views them as being in tune with his global view of our city and will be easily maneuvered into following his lead. Does this make them bad men? No, just men who he thinks can be manipulated by a clever guy with an insidious agenda.
CONSIDER THE SOURCE
So, when you read a screed from the CM Press and react by thinking, "Hey! That guy makes a lot of sense!", please take a moment to consider the source. Consider his motives before you jump on his bandwagon. He's a very smart fella, who knows how to twist (or fabricate) facts to play to your worst fears. He's not the first man in history to do this, as World War II demonstrated to us, but he's "our guy", trying to screw up our city with his racist agenda. The only way to stop him is to not vote for "his" candidates and neutralize his influence on the future of our city.
CM OPEN LIES TODAY, TOO
In his surrogate blog, the CM OPEN, more lies persist. In it's edition today the liars that write that stuff accuse me of deleting portions of my blog entries - which I didn't. This is a perfect example of just why readers should take what is written there with a huge grain of salt. Both the CM Press and CM OPEN - probably written by the same person - are festering repositories of lies and fabrications.
