A slap in the face

Two related news items out of Mexico, our number one source for immigrants and illegal aliens.

First, comments by their president, Felipe Calderon about the “culture of machismo” in Mexico. He says, “As a citizen, as a husband, as a father, as president, I am worried and indignant over the mistreatment millions of Mexican women still receive.”

He also remarked about “the false premise of subordination, submission and even inferiority of women with respect to men. This is a cultural obstacle that we have to reverse.”

Those comments were made last November.

Today I read about a solution to the problem: Pink buses for women only. The San Diego Union Tribune carried an article on the subject today with the headline, “Mexico City starts grope-free buses for women.”

Now, lest I start getting hate mail from women, let me assure you that I detest abuse of women in all its forms. I was raised by parents who taught us that no amount of violence is acceptable in the home. It was their opinion that no spouse should be given a second chance if they strike you.

What I found interesting is that in Mexico they can tell the truth about the problem and speak out about it. If you do that here, you are labeled a racist.

Here’s a link to the National Latino Alliance for the Elimination of Domestic Violence:

If you study the website, you will note that they spend half their time telling everyone that Latinos don’t have a problem in that area! Hmmmm.

Call them an “underserved population” but never admit there is a problem. Ah, the intricacies of political correctness. Do you think it ever dawns on the libs how foolish this all seems?

What irks me is that our society has spent a generation teaching society about this problem and yet we refuse to admit to ourselves that this is a key assimilation problem among the foreign-born. Let’s stop lying to ourselves.
