The two latest grim stories come from Texas. In Weslaco, three illegals kidnapped and sexually assaulted a 23-year-old student at South Texas College. In Lubbock last week, a judge sentenced another illegal to 15 years in prison for sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl.
These crimes, however, are relatively mild. In New City, N.Y., in 2006, for instance, housewife and mother Mary Nagle fell victim to an illegal Guatemalan. Prosecutors said the scene resembled “something from a horror movie,” and as this writer reported in The New American in 2007, “he beat her to a pulp with a lamp, and slashed her with a razor, nearly amputating one of her fingers in the attack. Investigators found a piece of her ear lobe and clumps of hair on the floor. After he finished raping, sodomizing, and mutilating Mrs. Nagle, he used her cellphone to call her sisters and friends and describe his unspeakable deed in pornographic detail.”
The shocking number of illegal-alien sex criminals in the United States came to light about three years ago, thanks to Deborah Schurman-Kauflin and her Violent Crimes Institute. When she looked at the data for 1,500 illegal-alien sex criminals, Schurman-Kauflin concluded that tens of thousands of sex offenders stream across the border and commit their ghastly crimes here. Over the eight-year period that she studied, she concluded that some quarter-million sex criminals had crossed. That’s about 100 per day.
The 1,500 illegal-alien sex criminals she investigated in detail victimized 5,999 people, about four victims each. Of those crimes studied, Schurman-Kauflin reported, “525 (35%) were child molestations, 358 (24%) were rapes, and 617 (41%) were sexual homicides and serial murders.” Schurman-Kauflin scrutinized 88 months of crime data and concluded that illegal aliens victimized nearly 1 million people.
While this mayhem continues, politicians fret about something else: the alleged flow of American guns to Mexican drug traffickers. Peddling a bogus statistic suggesting that 90 percent of the guns confiscated at crime scenes in Mexico come from the United States, leftist Sen. Diane Feinsten (D-Calif.) and her ilk would eliminate the right of an American to protect himself with a gun.
The chain of illogic runs this like: forget about illegal alien sex criminals. Rather, adopt anti-gun laws to staunch the trickle of American guns into Mexico. That, in turn, would impede American women from using guns to defend themselves against the very sex criminals the gun-grabbing politicians permit to run across the border.
Yet the formula is completely logical within the framework of anarcho-tyranny. Anarcho-tyranny, columnist Francis wrote, is “a kind of Hegelian synthesis of what appear to be dialectical opposites, the combination of oppressive government power against the innocent and the law-abiding, and simultaneously, a grotesque paralysis of the ability of the will to use that power to carry out basic public duties such as protection of public safety.”
Under anarcho-tyranny, he wrote, politicians “avoid performing such basic functions as stopping real crime and think up purely fictitious functions that will raise revenue, enhance the power of the police or bureaucrats, and foster the illusion that the state is doing its job. The victims of these new functions and law are precisely otherwise law-abiding and innocent citizens.” In other words, “government swells in power, criminals are not controlled, and law-abiding citizens wind up being repressed by the state and attacked by thugs.”
If that doesn’t describe modern America, nothing does. Just ask the victim of an illegal-alien rapist.
