Anchor Baby Michelle Malkin Wants to Police Latino Voters

Conservative anchor baby Michelle Malkin wants Americans to police Latinos for the upcoming election.

In the video below, she claims “We are all voter fraud police now,” and wants a close eye kept on Latino voters through obvious discrimination.

Malkin, as many know, is also no fan of “anchor babies”, and believes that the custom of granting automatic citizenship at birth to children of tourists and temporary workers undermines the integrity of citizenship.

The great irony is that Malkin herself was born in Philadelphia to parents who were not citizens at the time, making her both an anchor baby, and a massive hypocrite.

Mexican MMA Fighter Becomes UFC Champion

Undefeated Mexican-American MMA fighter Cain Velasquez easily defeated Brock Lesnar Saturday, October 23 to become UFC Champion. The win by Velasquez marks the first time in history that a fighter of Mexican descent has ever held a heavyweight title in mixed martial arts or boxing.

Velasquez, a two-time All-American collegiate wrestler from Arizona State, destroyed the heavily-favored Brock Lesnar in UFC 121 held at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California. The fight was stopped at 4 minutes and 12 seconds into Round 1.

“I expected nothing less,” Lesnar said. “I knew there was a great challenge in front of me. He’s a great fighter. What can I say? He was better than me tonight.”

Gif and Video of Robinson Cano’s Home Run

Texas fans weren’t too happy about the second inning of their 10-3 win over the New York Yankees in Game 4 of the ALCS on Tuesday night. The right field umpire made a controversial call on Robinson Cano’s home run off Rangers pitcher Tommy Hunter.

The Yankees second baseman hit one to right field and Texas’ Nelson Cruz attempted a leaping catch, but three New York fans went for the ball and hit his glove. Right-field umpire Jim Reynolds called it a home run. Despite a visit from Texas manager Ron Washington and protests from Cruz, the home run was not reviewed.

The Yankees fan who caught the ball, a 20-year-old named Jared Macchirole, told ESPN New York that it was a home run. It’s also not hard to tell what the guy in the World Series sweater is saying to Texas fans.

Florida Immigration Bill Would Give Europeans a Free Pass

Florida’s Arizona-Style Immigration Bill Would Give Canadians, Europeans a Free Pass

Florida state Rep. William Snyder, the slow-drawling ex-Miami-Dade Police officer who has drafted Tallahassee’s version of the hotly debated Arizona immigration bill, is adamant that his law would not lead to racial profiling.

“Race, ethnicity, and national origin cannot be used in making arrests. It’s immoral, illegal, and unconstitutional,” he said in a recent radio interview.

So why does his bill explicitly offer a free pass to Canadians and Western Europeans, who need only show a passport to be “presumed to be legally in the United States”?

“That language makes it clear that police are targeting only a specific minority,” says Susana Barciela, policy director at the Florida Immigrant Advocacy Center.

If you’ve somehow missed the months of heated bickering over Arizona’s bill, called SB-1070, it allows Grand Canyon State cops to demand papers from anyone detained lawfully whom they have “reasonable suspicions” of being an illegal alien.

Critics ask how anything other than skin color or a Hispanic name could lead to such “reasonable suspicions.” But constitutional questions aside, the bill’s appeal to xenophobes has led politicos nationwide to craft their own states’ imitations.

Snyder drafted his homage in August, and Republican gubernatorial candidate Rick Scott last week pledged to support the bill if elected.

What few observers seem to have noticed, though, is a bizarre clause Snyder included on page 3. Even if an officer has “reasonable suspicions” over a person’s immigration status, the bill says, a person will be “presumed to be legally in the United States” if he or she provides “a Canadian passport” or a passport from any “visa waiver country.”

What are the visa waiver countries? Other than four Asian nations, all 32 other countries are in Western Europe, from France to Germany to Luxembourg.

In other words, Snyder’s bill tells police to drop their “reasonable suspicions” of anyone hailing from dozens of countries full of white people.

How is that not racial profiling?

Snyder backed out of an interview with Riptide, but here’s what he recently said on immigration advocate Subhash Kateel’s radio show, Let’s Talk About It, on 880 AM:

“What we’re doing there is trying to be sensitive to Canadians. We have an enormous amount of… Canadians wintering here in Florida,” he said. “That language is comfort language.”

If Scott wins and Snyder’s bill becomes law, we’re sure the thousands of Latin Americans who spend their summers in Miami will be ever so comforted.
