The more things change the more they stay the same.
Brewer is still out there defending the immigration law that basically legalizes racial profiling. And last week she signed another law that attacks ethnic studies programs. And they also want to get rid of teachers who speak with accents, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Can this really be happening in America today?
Even Republican Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has come out against Arizona's immigration law. He recently joked about it in a speech at Emory University.
"I was also going to give a graduation speech in Arizona this weekend. But with my accent, I was afraid they would try to deport me," the governor said.
But what's not funny is that 73 percent of people surveyed in a new Pew Research Center poll support the law that requires people suspected of being undocumented to show proof they are in the U.S. legally.
Sure they support this law because it doesn't impact them.
I have an idea though. Let's pass a federal law that requires EVERYBODY, white, black or brown, to carry a passport or a birth certificate. Let's then have a federal force dedicated to stopping people at random to check their papers. If you don't have your papers, then you can be arrested and detained.
But wait that sounds too much like Nazi Germany.
I agree with Seth Meyers from Saturday Night Live.
"I know there's some people in Arizona worried that Obama is acting like Hitler, but can we all agree that there's nothing more Nazi than saying 'Show me your papers'," Meyers recently said on Weekend Update.
By the way a friend of mine, who is from Germany, sent me the following photo over the weekend. I think it says it all.
