My favorite female politician — aside from Sarah Palin — has always historically been Margaret Thatcher.
Thatcher faced criticism from hysterical liberal men in the 1980’s for making shrewd decisions that bettered Britain. As a result, she was scorned many times by members of the left-wing press and liberal politicians.
What Jan Brewer did last week reminded me of many things Thatcher did and received scrutiny for.
When Thatcher tossed thug-like trade union bosses out on their necks, suddenly the ordinary decent trade union worker could work without facing a force to come out on strike and businesses could operate without the threat of being closed down under a socialist labour government.
When Thatcher; along with the British Government, extended the exclusion lines of the Falklands to further protect the British military in a time of war, the following statement was released making this policy well-known to all:
In announcing the establishment of a Maritime Exclusion Zone around the Falkland Islands, Her Majesty’s Government made it clear that this measure was without prejudice to the right of the United Kingdom to take whatever additional measures may be needed in the exercise of its right of self-defence under Article 51 of the United Nations Charter. In this connection Her Majesty’s Government now wishes to make clear that any approach on the part of Argentine warships, including submarines, naval auxiliaries or military aircraft, which could amount to a threat to interfere with the mission of British Forces in the South Atlantic will encounter the appropriate response. All Argentine aircraft, including civil aircraft engaged in surveillance of these British forces, will be regarded as hostile and are liable to be dealt with accordingly.
In the true hot-headed fashion of the Argentine, they defied the orders and crossed the lines anyway. As promised, Thatcher immediately gave orders to sink the Belgrano. Thatcher did so to protect the military which she was responsible of. The Argentine knew the rules, they broke them, they paid for it.
Of course Thatcher faced scathing dissent from the British left — proving once again — that when liberals go into hysterics, something happened for the betterment of their own nation’s security.
Similarly, Jan Brewer enforced national immigration law that has existed for decades. She took the first step towards dealing with illegal immigrants, preventing them from committing crimes on our soil, from using up our infrastructure and resources, and avoid them from costing taxpayers more money with incarcerations.
Of course, liberals all over the country are threatening boycotts. Pop star Shakira is flying to Arizona to protest and is requesting a meeting with the governor. I wonder if her personal residence or neighborhood in Hollywood is gated to keep ordinary folks out?
This of course is evident of Margaret Thatcher’s most famous quote: “If you want something said, ask a man. If you want something done, ask a woman.” THIS is how leaders are supposed to behave. THIS is what inspires Americans and gives us a sense of unity as we all work to better our own lives. THIS is the kind of government we deserve!
If a few high-profile Hispanics like Shakira start with threatening boycotts in their mission to mis-characterize what this legislation is all about, then all Americans — including legalized Hispanics who are continuously placed into the same category as illegal criminals for the sake of political correctness — can hit back. Boycott Hispanics who contribute to the mischaracterization of immigration law. Don’t listen to their music, don’t go to their concerts, don’t eat at their restaurants, don’t watch their shows.
WE have the power. The majority of this country supports this serious action taken by Brewer. If the opponents of this refuse to conform to common sense, we can organize even better than they can.
Talk to your friends and pay attention. Do your part.
God Bless Jan Brewer! I will be visiting Arizona in June and because of her, I will be a lot safer.
