Turned up to eleven: Fair and Balanced

Monday, December 10, 2001


BTW, that last was from NPR morning edition, so I have no linkage. On LA local morning edition, there was a story about using Mexican ID cards in Orange County, and the controversy around it. A man actually said "If Mexican illegals can live here, then so can Islamic terrorists" and was greeted with APPLAUSE for it in OC. Is this for real? Here is the story; the Mexican government issues a national ID card, and illegal aliens can go to the consulate and get a card, and use it as acceptable ID in several places in CA, including Orange County. Can someone explain to me what this has to do with Islamic terrorists? This is xenophobia, plain and simple (and revolting).
