To the Justice Department of John Ashcroft, John McNicholl is a lifelong criminal. He also is a Catholic, and I almost never waste my time pointing this out, but in matters with John Ashcroft, I believe that his psalm-singing, right-wing, country-road religion leaves him somewhat suspicious of Catholics, if not more.
The Irish-Americans, who come up dumb again, cheer Ashcroft. He harms their kind and they like him. The Irish even think the FBI is great.
The Justice Department people hold a hammer for Irish immigrants. Work and paying taxes doesn’t count. Irish in Texas and Florida report detaining and deporting. The immigration people deny this, which means it is true.
…That this American government of bigots from the Low IQ states can run over our Bill of Rights, grabbing somebody with no warning in the dark hours, is a terrorist act by psalm-singers. The only way to defend yourself is to vote them out. Those who don’t are fans of fascism.
Jimmy Breslin is usually self-fisking and this editorial doesn’t disappoint, besides life it too short to waste it fisking his columns.
