Remember Linda Sánchez? She is the California Democrat and Obama super delegate who sponsored the Megan Meier Cyberbullying Prevention Act that would imprison people for using the internet and other “electronic means” to say unkind things about other people.

Law professor and blogger Eugene Volokh pointed out in May of 2009 that the law was so broad it might be used to ensnared newspaper reporters and journalists after they write acrimonious editorials. “The examples could be multiplied pretty much indefinitely,” writes Volokh. “The law, if enacted, would clearly be facially overboard (and probably unconstitutionally vague), and would thus be struck down on its face under the First Amendment,” Volokh wrote.
Ms. Sánchez has made headlines again. On Tuesday Sánchez told a Democratic Club that white supremacist groups are influencing lawmakers to adopt laws that will lead to discrimination. “There’s a concerted effort behind promoting these kinds of laws on a state-by-state basis by people who have ties to white supremacy groups,” she said, according to Fox News. “It’s been documented. It’s not mainstream politics.”
Apparently Sánchez not only believes lawmakers are sympathetic to the cause of racist operatives, but also believes a majority of Americans are either racist or gullible dupes for white supremacy groups.
The non-partisan Quinnipiac University Poll shows American voters say by 48%-35% that they want an immigration law like the one in Arizona, which requires law enforcement officials to ask someone’s legal status if there is “reasonable suspicion” to believe the person is in the USA illegally, reports USA Today.
The Arizona law, according to Sánchez, creates a “Jim Crow system where based on the color of your skin you could be treated as a second-class citizen or harassed based on how you look.”

In fact, the Arizona law specifically addresses issues such as racial profiling. Section II of the new law states that a law enforcement officer “may not consider race, color or national origin” in making any stops or determining any aliens’ immigration status, Kris Kobach, a constitutional law professor at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, told CNSNews on May 5.
Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas), ranking member of the House Judiciary committee, notes the Arizona bill closely mirrors federal law. Linda Sánchez has represented the 39th Congressional District of California in the United States House of Representatives since 2003. Does she consider the federal law racist as well?
Rep. Gary Miller, R-Calif., told the Whittier Daily News Sánchez is attempting to change the argument from protecting the border to a fallacious argument based on racism. “It’s trying to find somebody somewhere you can accuse of something,” Miller told the newspaper. “It’s red herring. (She’s) trying to change the debate from what the law says.” Miller said Sánchez’s comments are “an outrageous accusation.”
Linda Sánchez’s attempt to discredit the Arizona law is yet another example of Democrats playing the race card in order to attack their opponents.
In part, Obama was selected and installed in office specifically because of his skin color. The establishment understands well how to play the political game.
Due to a heightened atmosphere of political correctness and decades of multiculturalism, it is increasingly difficult to criticize puppets of the elite if they are members of a federally protected ethnic or minority group. All criticism will be dismissed as the rantings of the Ku Klux Klan and other such absurd groups, many of them created and supported by the government.
Carroll Quigley’s theory that the people can be fooled indefinitely by two political parties that are almost identical and pursue same the basic policies no longer works and that is why the elite have decided to exploit race.
