Get a Whiff?

Sheriff Joe Arpaio is the famous, or infamous, lawman in Arizona. He has now said that “the dumping of illegals is intentional” — intended by the Obama administration. (See the Washington Times, here.) I don’t know whether this is true, but I was reminded of an extraordinary moment in Britain.

A Labour aide, Andrew Neather, admitted that a policy of mass immigration was intended “to change the face of Britain forever.” He further said that this policy was meant “to rub the Right’s nose in diversity and render their arguments out of date.”

“To rub the Right’s nose in diversity” — that is one of the most pungent phrases of the modern political age, I think.
