Memories of Oppression March 10, 2011

Posted by Jason in Uncategorized.

1. The GOP-controlled Utah legislature has created a guest-worker program for illegal immigrants that allows the undocumented to work legally. The measure was passed with the support of the Mormon church, after lobbying by business groups. Perhaps the Mormons remember their persecution well enough to defend other marginal groups.

The same story seems to be at work for the Japanese Americans who are the loudest voices against House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Peter King’s (R) hearings on radical islam. Lexington doesn’t like the man much, either.

2. Gary Locke will replace John Huntsman as US Ambassador to China. No word yet on whether the third-generation Chinese American, currently Secretary of the Commerce Department, is having a hard time dealing with accusations of race treason on the famously nationalist Chinese internet.

3. One of the Western Intellectual advisors to Saif-Al Qaddafi takes questions on his pupil and compares him to Michael Corleone, reformer turned underboss. One of the better interviews around.
