I very, very, very rarely get angry, but this morning I did.
I was listening to National Public Radio (NPR) on the way into work this morning and the morning host of NPR’s morning fake news program — Morning Edition — was interviewing one Jorge Castañeda.
The wretched Casteñeda suggested that if soon-to-be-President Trump decides to be less of a patsy than the current President, then Mexico has “leverage.” He then suggested that Mexico now has an aggressive effort ongoing to interdict drugs going to the United States, and that they do this nice thing for us at our request. Mexico could, Castañeda suggested, ratchet back that effort, thereby allowing more drugs into the U.S.
Mind you there was no mention of the notion that Mexico might want to capture drug lords and gangs, and prevent the dissemination of their toxic product because it’s just the right thing to do. No, they do it, because we, the Americans, request that they do it. Neither was there any mention of the horrific nature of Castañeda’s little threat from the NPR host, one Steve Inskeep. I almost drove off the road!
First of all, maybe it’s time to rename National Public Radio to Irrational Public Radio. How did the airhead Inskeep not jump all over that perverted threat by Castañeda?!?
Can you believe that? This slimeball Castañeda is perfectly fine with killing his own, and our, fellow citizens to further what he believes are his country’s political interests. And National Public Radio treated that selfsame slimeball as a legitimate commentator on Mexican-American relations.
Guess what: Your tax dollars pay to help keep NPR on the air. That should tick you off royally!
Build the bleepin’ wall… and send Mexico the bill. When they don’t pay the bill, deduct some big percent of all remittances back to Mexico from Mexicans here, until it’s all paid up. Or take enough of any Mexican assets in our country to equal the cost.
