Medved goes nuclear on “North American Union” conspiracy theorists

posted at 2:04 pm on December 28, 2006 by Allahpundit

Not a suitcase nuke, either. We’re talking Tsar Bomba:

This paranoid and groundless frenzy has been fomented and promoted by a shameless collection of lunatics and losers; crooks, cranks, demagogues and opportunists, who claim the existence of a top secret master plan to join the U.S., Canada and Mexico in one big super-state and to replace the good old Yankee dollar with a worthless new currency called “The Amero.” Another delusion usually associated with these fears involves the construction of a “Monster Highway” some sixteen lanes wide through Texas and the Great Plains, connecting the two nations on either side of the border for some nefarious but never-explained purpose…

The problem with the demagogues and exploiters is that they make it more difficult – vastly more difficult – for decent people to face the real problems involving our border with Mexico (which clearly, undeniably needs better security and more protection) and to correct the altogether unacceptable outrage of more than 12 million illegals who live and work in the United States in open contravention of our immigration laws.

Yes, we need immigration reform, but if substantial elements of the right become fixated on secret plans for “North American Union,” then they will make themselves irrelevant to the national debate framing and shaping that reform. Paranoia is paralyzing, and leads to powerlessness and marginalization…

Please – take careful note of anyone in politics (even some “reputable” US Congressmen) or media who gives even a moment’s credence to the “dangers” of the Security and Prosperity Partnership, or the North American Union, or the Monster Highway. Write down the names of such people, and remember the names. And then when the fraudulent stories have been discredited or simply disappeared (like the brain-dead, laughableY2K scare, or the U.N. National Parks conspiracy, or the concentration camps and black helicopters that were supposed to menace opponents of globalization), or when the tall tales have morphed into some other attempt to paralyze the unsuspecting public with paranoia, please refer once again to the names on your list of fatuous fear-mongers AND TREAT THEM WITH THE DERISION AND CONTEMPT AND DISREGARD THEY SO RICHLY DESERVE.

U.S. Congressmen, eh? Whatever could he mean?

RedinBlue … you are obviously not reading the comments. You seem to be reading single lines and then reacting. You ask the same questions twice, after they were answered previously.

Yes, they are all being implemented. I gave you the links to verify it for you. The entire outline is not just a proposal. It is being used as a guide and being followed EXACTLY by this administration.

Please actually read the plan as I asked you, and then feel free to specify which parts of the “proposal” you feel are not actually in the process of being implemented.

Both Laura and I have already repeatedly explained to you why the plan does not need the approval of the people, does not need the approval of Congress, does not need a Constitutional ammendment, and does not required a signed treaty. You chose to ignore that, and to continue to simply repost the same answer.

Laura, I think we’re debating Juan Hernandez.

No, just someone who trusts the system to work the way it was intended to.

And by the way, that NAFTA panel was conducted in Canada. So a legal proceeding in Canada made Mexico pay an American company. I really doubt that NAFTA supporters expected that kind of thing to go on.

Laura on December 29, 2006 at 4:31 PM

I would like to think so, but his last four points seem to completely ignore all other comments as if he’s purposely attempting to mislead. It’s the same tactic used in interviews with people such as Juan Hernandez. Ignore the question, ignore the facts, and continue to offer the same exact misleading info for all who will listen without verifying it.

I’ll believe he means well as soon as he offers even one comment which suggests that he’s actually read the previous answers, or read any of the links provided.

I know I’m several days late, but couldn’t resist adding my two pesetas.

Medved could be right. But the gigantic problem with his column is that he never gives an iota of solid evidence to back up his claims. Congressman Tancredo, on the other hand, is a best-selling author on the subject of immigration. His credibility is greater than Medved’s until proven otherwise.

Whenever there is suspicion of a scheme being cooked up by the government, the proper default position is to be wary and concerned. If it turns out to be baseless, be happy. But when the best the opposing position can do is move along, there’s nothing to see here, I can’t bring myself to ignore that man behind the curtain.

Beyond that, Gregor and Laura did a fine job of providing solid sourcing of facts directly related to the issue.

I just love it when Allah Pundit finds another Rockefellar Repulican, Kool-Aid, drinker to defend his case.

Not once has he ever linked to any of the FOIA documents that prove the NAU is being constructed by the Bush Administration.
