Pena Nieto must be Spanish for “arrogant.”
On a two-day trip to California this week, Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto insulted his host country at least twice, referring to the United States as “the other Mexico” and criticizing states that want to control immigration as not having “evolved” as much as California when it comes to letting illegal immigrants run roughshod over their social structure.
Do they not teach manners south of the border?
According to the Los Angeles Times, Pena Nieto claimed to have a responsibility for all Mexicans, “regardless of where they live,” as the Times put it.
“This is the other Mexico,” Pena Nieto said, vowing to improve services at Mexican consulates in the U.S.
Actually, it’s not “the other Mexico.” It’s the only United States of America — and still the envy of the world. And if some poor-relation border country president wants to pay another visit, his time might be better spent figuring out how to make his own country worth a damn instead of bragging about how he was going to help more of his own countryman who clawed their way away from home get the free education and health care illegal immigrants enjoy in the United States.
But Pena Nieto sees it differently. While congratulating California’s liberal Democrat Gov. Jerry Brown for cravenly – and probably illegally — turning the once-Golden State into a haven for foreign criminals, il signor presidente had the effrontery to obliquely threaten Brown’s fellow governors who still think immigration into America should be controlled by American laws.
“There are still states that have not evolved so much as California, that still skimp on recognition and, even worse, the rights of immigrants,” he said, according to the Associated Press.
“Those who still believe and bet for the exclusion and discrimination or the rejection of diversity … I only have one thing to say: the future, and a very near future, will demonstrate your ethical mistake. Time will show we’re right.”
Those are not the words of a guest. They are the threats of a thug. Take out the buzzwords of “exclusion” and “diversity,” take out the obscenely deliberate misuse of the noble word “ethical,” and what you have is an unspoken gangster’s “or else.”
And this is a man whose own country was a conduit for the tens of thousands of illegal aliens who flooded the United States this summer from countries even worse than Mexico.
The worst part about it is American Democrats, from the White House in Washington to the California Governor’s Mansion to the community organizers around the country are doing their damndest to make Pena Nieto’s words come true.
“The other Mexico.”
Is that what those dead, white males in Philadelphia were aiming for?
