AMERICA'S "HOLD ME BACK!" LEADERSHIP | 2002-03-30
The job of the head of the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) is to make sure the INS enforces the law. That is his only function.
As everybody knows by now, the INS recently issued visas to two terrorists who died six months before killing thousands of Americans. Last week they gave visas to four sailors meeting the terrorist profile. Those four promptly disappeared into the US.
After two total disasters reported coast-to-coast in which the INS did not enforce the law, the head of the INS really got tough with his employees.
He said they had better start enforcing the law, or else.
I am sure that everybody in the INS is shaking in his boots.
The Catholic Church in America would not hesitate to punish a priest who said something Politically Incorrect about race. Now the bishops say they may start punishing priests who rape little boys.
You see, the bishops get brownie points with the liberal media when they come down on "Racism" but the media doesn't give a rip about child molestation.
So bishops and mainline preachers and respectable conservatives all follow the orders they are given.
And now even some people in the media are beginning to ask, "Where the hell were you saints and INS heads all these years while dangerous aliens were given visas and children were being molested?"
And the answer from church and pulpit and conservatives is,
"Hold me back! Hold me back!"
I, for one, have seen a lot of "hold me backs" in my time. I have never seen a single holdmeback who ever did what he threatened to do.
