Former Democrat New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson says Republican U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas should not be defined as a Hispanic — his father was Cuban — because, well, gee, he opposes the immigration reform measure wending its way through the Washington meat grinder. Since when do political positions define one's ethnicity? Since liberals — long ago — also began demeaning black conservatives as not being black at all. ... The editor of the Aurora (Colo.) Sentinel writes that “the real terrorist threat here in America” is the National Rifle Association. In fact, Dave Perry says America should “send the guilty monsters to Guantanamo Bay for all eternity and let them rot in their own mental squalor” because the NRA, in defending the Second Amendment, actually is undermining the Constitution. Ah, more “progressive” critical thinking skills on display. ... Sayeth Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., “The idea that the Second Amendment was put in (the Bill of Rights) in order to allow citizens to fight their government is insane.” It's official, Chris Murphy just called Thomas Jefferson, James Madison and all of the rest of the Framers and Founders “insane.”
