Snobby Amherst Hearts Terrorists

Cartoon courtesy of my buddy, Larry Kelley, who has more on this goofiness.

FYI: I was the 'token' conservative (translation: pro-American sovereignty) columnist, for many years, in the Hampshire County (where Amherst is located) daily newspaper. It was a really nice gig even though the paper's viewpoint, just like the geographic area, is predictably left-of-center. My opinions so clashed with the status quo that letter-to-the-editor writers told me to move. As in, 'we don't want your kind here.' La di da.

So much for tolerance, peace, diversity, 'stop the hate,' 'take back the night' campaigns, and all that fruit and nuts and granola jazz.

Update: The Wall St. Journal blogger is not impressed with this fuzzy-wuzzy gesture of hospitality.

Another update: Wimps!

That James Taranto blog entry about the Amherst loonienees (then again, why malign loons with this comparison?) includes this quote within a passage from the Boston Globe: "The United States has a long history of being a place of refuge and asylum for persecuted people."

Evidently, those Guantanamo detainees have been misidentified as terrorists, when they're actually **refugees**!

Seriously, this is quite in keeping with what former INS Assistant Commissioner Jan Ting had to say, namely that 95% of refugee and asylee cases are fraudulent. See http://blog.vdare.com/archives/2006/09/16/jan-ting-a-us-senate-candidate-we-dont-need-to-educate
