Not Young, Not Black, Not Latino, Not Female...Not Important
Take a look at the picture above. It's Robert Krentz, the Arizona rancher whose murder at the hands of an illegal alien probably helped secure the passage of Arizona's tough new anti-illegal immigration law. But if Robert Krentz's murder propelled the new law into action, that's all it did.
It didn't move the oh-so-compassionate liberals to express sympathy for Krentz. It didn't prompt the Mexican government to issue an apology to Krentz's family for their suffering at the hands of a Mexican citizen. It didn't stir the lame stream media to demand the feds get in control of the border NOW! No, Robert Krentz's brutal murder didn't inspire any of the above because he was the wrong type of person. Robert Krentz didn't belong to any of the categories of people, articulated by Barack Obama, that it's fashionable for liberals to care about. Krentz was an unfashionable victim.
Take a look at the picture above. It's a picure of a human being: older, white, male, and in the mind of a frighteningly large segment of our population, expendable. That's REAL racial profiling. Why don't the liberals condemn that?
