Of course, the Arizona law would only profile people who look brown-ish. U.S. citizens, illegal immigrants, anyone brown-ish. So that’s okay for the Republicans, who are mostly white.
I wonder how they would feel, however, if a similar law aimed at weeding out right-wing extremists called for law enforcement to stop and search people at, say, gun clubs and tea party lawn parties based solely upon how they look. The whiter and angrier the guiltier, right? A sign with a gun on it? Boom! Show me your papers. One of those camouflage trucker caps? Show me your papers. This guy? Maybe hauled downtown for questioning.
Can you imagine the mayhem?
There’s never a Big Government around when you need one.
