Los New York Times’ Editorial Jumps the Border

Saturday’s editorial in the New York Times congratulates the Phoenix Los Suns players and ownership for “truly being role models.” Wow, how far have athletes fallen when defending lawbreakers returns them to “role model” status?

Keep in mind this editorial castigating Arizona’s immigration law comes from within the borders of the same city that gladly pays to deport the homeless to other states. The ultimate dilemma for the New York Times would be if a homeless illegal was camped out in their lobby.

On a somewhat separate note, how’s this for irony — I did watch a bit of the Los Suns game the other night, and I was absolutely horrified by what I saw: Standing in the entrances to US Airways Stadium were employees of Robert Sarver checking everybody’s papers!

Apparently if you don’t have what the fascist NBA refers to as a legally purchased “ticket” you can’t get in. And if you sneak in, Sarver’s goons will find you and kick you out and/or press criminal charges. What’s this country coming to?
