President Calderon: Lousy Translators, or Lousy Thought Processes?

By John W. Lillpop

With the fellow who is supposed to be the president of the United States standing beside him, Mexican President Felipe Calderon stuck his meddlesome nose into the affairs of our sovereign nation by launching a bitter assault on Arizona’s new law, SB 1070.

In part, Calderon’s remarks were translated into English as follows (1):

"We can do so with a community that will promote a dignified life and an orderly way for both our countries, who are, some of them, still living here in the shadows with such laws as the Arizona law that is placing our people to face discrimination.”

Did Calderon really say “placing our people to face discrimination”?

When the President of Mexico is so completely language flawed,it is any wonder that lesser –educated, less bright Mexicans in California think it “incendiary” to fly the America flag on Cinco de Mayo day?

Oh, for the good old days of W.!

If former U.S. President W. Bush was still in power, he would have made everything as clear as Texas mud by declaring that,”Calderon mis-underestimates the good people of Arizona. Hispanically speaking, that is!”

Calderon apologists were quick to point out that the garbled message was the fault of translators—in the employ of the Mexican government we would add.

Even with allowances for lousy translators, President Calderon is hardly off the hook for poor communications.

Example: Calderon also stated that the United States and Mexico need to work together to build a “border that unites us.”

Therein lays the problem, patriots!

Calderon and his third-world mobsters see the border as a unifying force, whereas, as any first grader can tell you, the purpose of the border is to separate!

It’s called U.S. sovereignty, President Calderon!

In simpler terms, it means that the United States is a separate, sovereign entity from Mexico, as defined by our borders.

Unlike much of Mexico, America operates in accordance with the rule of law, which applies to everyone, including Calderon's fellow citizens trying to escape the horrors of Mexico by invading America illegally.

Again, America is a sovereign entity separate and distinct from Mexico. We intend to keep it that way!

As a sovereign state, America neither needs nor desires input from foreign “leaders” such as you, President Calderon, concerning our laws and statutes.

When it comes to eradicating racist and discriminatory laws, we suggest that you start with Mexico’s barbaric immigration laws and dismal treatment of illegal aliens, which Amnesty International recently described as a “human rights crisis.”

Please do not leave offended, Mr. Calderon, just leave!, and keep your nose out of America’s affairs!
