Want Justice for Ramos & Compean ? You're a Racist !No Hugh Hewitt, I am Not a Racist
Hugh Hewitt called me a racist on his radio show Wednesday. He called you a racist too...That is, if you have made "conclusory" statements about convicted border agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Alonso Compean. (Unfortunately,it seems sometimes as though, Hugh Hewitt is more concerned with what some charlatan, lurking in the bushes, might be waiting to say about him than just speaking frankly on a subject and letting the cards fall where they may.)
Please explain to us Mr. Hewitt,why it is that you scream 'racism' sometimes when you decide that someone is "banging pots and pans" in a manner of which you disaprove ? And considering that people with spanish surnames are on both sides of this issue, how is it that anyone is racist here ? Michael Jackson and O.J. were acuitted. I've heard you say that they are guilty. Are you a racist ? Of course not, you made a reasonable assessment of the facts available to you and came to a conclusion. That is what people are doing regarding this case.
This is a case that is of such importance,I cannot imagine your seeming lack of curiosity. United States congressmen and other community leaders have made public statements to the affect that these two are completely innocent, or at worst, guilty of a simple procedural infraction and all you can say is,"I'm the lawyer folks! People just don't get convicted for nothing, okay all you racist pots and pans bangers ?" Sorry Mr. H.,but that just does not wash. It also doesn't square with your, in the midst of this same tirade, insistence that we don't really know anything on either account. (Just a little aside here: Rush Limbaugh; The Duke lacrosse team; "Scooter" Libby; Sandy Burglar: Do you really want to flash the "Justice doesn't get railroaded" card with the current state of American jurisprudence ?)
These are the kinds of actions that get (some) people thinking about ulterior motives. You're all over the place. I am a great admirer of yours and sympathize with the task of having to speak for 15 hours a week, and still not make any mistakes of signifigance. I just would like to see once,someone,anyone step up to the mic and say,"Well, I was out of line with that stuff the other day.I had a preconcieved notion due to my life experiences and it was wrong to assume anything about something that I truly don't know that much about.I appologize" Would that kill ones credibility with the public, or strengthen it ? I wonder.
My awareness, like that of intellectual titan Rush Limbaugh, of what is going on in America is greatly enhanced by your presence on the scene and I thank you for that. I look forward to hearing a more open,if not so vigilante, mind on the matter of what I, and so many others, view as the cause of two possibly unsung, and most assuredly horribly mistreated, patriots of our great and noble nation, America.
p.s. I am not a racist. And I don't run from the path of someone calling me one.
Former agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean deserve my support. Go here to show yours.
