Barbara Simpson writes in her July 14 WorldNetDaily column:
Do cultural differences matter?
Consider: The exhibition soccer match two weeks ago in Las Vegas between Mexican rivals Chivas and Club America hadn’t even begun when fans swarmed the parking lot and the crowd erupted into massive brawl of rock and can throwing and bloody fighting.
Despite police presence, fighting continued through halftime and after the game, involving players and fans.
One was quoted in the Las Vegas Sun as saying the rivalry is “deadly,” and “We don’t like each other.”
Could’ve fooled me.
The first week of July saw some of the same and more in Brazil. Another soccer game, this time a player disagreed with the referee and was expelled from the game but not before the ref stabbed him.
The player died. That’s when the fans took over, swarmed the ref, stoned him, cut his head off, put it on a stake and cut his body apart.
At that point, nobody much cared who won the game.
Not to say that such violence is typical, but in a sense it is. Soccer games are notoriously violent, and it’s an example of what we face as we enable foreigners to become legal before they’ve become American.
So, Simpson is basically suggesting that Latinos be barred from entering the U.S. because of soccer brawls.
It's not like America doesn't have a tradition of violence at sports events (though, to be fair, without the beheading and quartering). One could actually say that fighting Latino soccer fans are well with the American tradition.
So let's not pretend that Simpson is all that worried about "cultural diffrences" -- she just wants to fearmonger about illegal immigrants, and immigrants in general. She goes on to declare that immigration reform means "the end of the USA as we’ve known it."
