Two U.S. Citizens Have Been Charged With Starting Arizona Wildfire John McCain and FOX PAC Claimed Was Started By Illegals?
According to Reuters two cousins who allegedly left a campfire unattended have been charged with starting Arizona’s largest ever wildfire that torched more than 800 square miles of wilderness prosecutors said on Wednesday.
Caleb Joshua Malboeuf, 26, and David Wayne Malboeuf, 24, were charged with starting the so-called Wallow Fire on May 29, in the Apache Sitgreaves National Forest in eastern Arizona, the U.S. Attorney’s office said in a news release. The Malboeufs are United States citizens.
But wait just a minute, revered Republican Tea Party (GOTP) Senator John McCain – backed up by the “fair and balanced” folks of FOX PAC – claimed over-and-over the fire was started by illegal immigrants hiding out in the Arizona wilderness.
The Malboeuf cousins, both from southern Arizona, have been charged on five counts including causing timber to burn, leaving a fire unattended and unextinguished and building a campfire without removing all surrounding flammable material.
During June as several wildfires raged in the Mexico border state, McCain claimed there was “substantial evidence that some of these fires have been caused by people who have crossed our border illegally.”
McCain really needs to keep his pie hole shut on just about all things, and he really needs to think about retiring before he embarrasses himself beyond recovery – if that hasn’t already happened.
But McCain wasn’t alone in his claims as multiple FOX PAC personalities also made the same claim. Of course anytime anything happens you can bet FOX PAC will blame one of three parties, illegal aliens, Muslims or President Obama – we’re still waiting to see who gets the blame for Hurricane Irene.
FOX is not a news agency, it’s the propaganda wing for the GOTP and everyone knows it even if conservatives and viewers of FOX PAC won’t admit it. Clearly the reporting on FOX is becoming more-and-more inflammatory, biased and anything but fair and balanced.
Where does the Republican/Tea (GOTP) Party find these people? Seriously, a United States Congressman, Mo Brooks from Alabama, actually said “As your congressman on the House floor, I will do anything short of shooting them. Anything that is lawful, it needs to be done because illegal aliens need to quit taking jobs from American citizens”?
You’re killing me Smalls!
Brooks made his incredible statement during an interview on WHNT, an Alabama TV station on 29 June 11.
During the interview Brooks went on to say, “They (illegal aliens) have no right to be here. They are clogging up our emergency rooms, and making our education system more expensive. If you go to the Madison County Jail, there are far too many illegal aliens there because they have victimized Americans.”
So, once again a GOTP politician has decided to blame his state’s ills on illegal aliens; according to Brooks, illegals are responsible for problems in health care, and education and are roaming around victimizing “real” Americans; thus he feels his violent rhetoric is acceptable. When American politicians begin to use one group of people – easily identified by race – as the cause of all ills they take steps down the same road a political party took in Germany in the early 1930s.
They are advocating people be arrested if they can’t prove their citizenship – show me your papers.
They are advocating “anything short of shooting them” meaning beating them is OK? Stabbing is OK? Lynching is OK? Anything short of shooting is an awfully big anything.
Congressman Brooks was wrong to say what he did, and his ignorance is showing. Maybe folks in Alabama think this is OK, or at least the folks in Brook’s District might, but someone, somewhere in the GOTP needs to stand up and say “enough is enough”. Someone in that party needs to grow up, be the adult and reclaim it from the lunatics on the fringe.
