Whenever Ms. Chavez writes a clear, insightful column such as this one, the comments sections fills up with comments about PAST columns. That she is perceived to be -- or if you prefer, is, "soft on illegals" -- is no reason to discount everything she says about everything. For the record, she has never advocated open borders. That many disagree with her opinions on illegal immigration is one thing. To attach that disagreement, with mean-spirited sarcasm, to nearly all comments about her many othre writings, is the sort of Johnny-one-note snark that is better left to the liberals.

An Open Letter to the Political Right

Absolutely right! An example: if McCain, called a Rino by many, had won in 2008, we would NOT have the multitude of messes that we have, domestically and world wide. "Every Pub is better than any any liberal Dem." True. Unfortunately, there seem to be no surviving Dem politicians who are "centrist" enough not to be unmitigated disasters: there are no Tip O'neals; Joe Liberman was run out of the party; etc., ad nauseum. Thus, if we Republicans, of whatever stripe, don't hang together, we will surely hang separately, to quote a pundit born over 300 years ago.

A masterpiece of irony, wit, incisive insight, and use of the English language!

Good point. It is. The celebration of victimhood (and its cousins, entitlement, patriarchy-phobia, et al), leaves no place for the celebration of restraint, sobriety, modesty, chivalry, chastity, or common sense. The celebration of victimhood leads to more faux victims, falsely-accused predators, real predators, and real victims. It's a mess.

Something To Celebrate

There's nothing un-conservative in what Ms. Chavez wrote. "We take for granted now that anyone can take a seat at a lunch counter or register at a hotel of his or her choosing, regardless of skin color." I remember that era. And just because the present is full of reverse-racism, stultifying political correctness, and white guilt, there's no reason to have a knee-jerk reaction against her column. She reminds us that far more Republicans voted for the Civil Rights Act then Democrats, and that racism is no longer a daily fact of life. I wish my fellow conservatives would emulate Reagan, celebrating good ideas even from people they disagree with on other issues. Leave the snippiness to the leftists! And happy Fourth to all.
