Conservatives Are From Mars, Liberals Are From San Francisco

tempting to compare Dallas-based public relations consultant
Rob Allyn to a snake oil salesman, but that would be too unfair
and too insulting -- to the salesman.
Allyn on the Fox News Channel’s “The O’Reilly
Factor” recently, dispensing the pro-Mexico drivel he’s
well paid by that country’s government to shovel in the
direction of anyone who will listen. The unctuous Mexico mouthpiece,
who secretly helped President Vicente Fox get elected in the
first place, now makes big pesos trying to convince Americans
that illegal immigration is swell.
In his appearance
with Bill O’Reilly, Allyn wasted no time making statements
that were, to be kind, disingenuous. First he said it’s
not true that the Mexican government is threatening to launch
lawsuits against the U.S. if members of the National Guard
take action to detain migrants, and then he said Fox is committed
to helping the U.S. secure its southern border.
Gamble is a former writer for President Ronald Reagan
and resides in Carmel. [go to Gamble index]
“Let me make it clear that Mexico does not support illegal
immigration,” Allyn told a skeptical O’Reilly.
As e-mailers often write, LOL. The Mexican foreign minister
has been quoted in an interview as threatening lawsuits, and
Fox has no interest whatsoever
in a secure border that would prevent the country from dumping more of the
poorest of its people on the U.S. Here we have a government that provides maps
showing border crossers how best to sneak into the U.S., and we’re supposed
to believe Allyn that Fox is on our side?
What is it with this guy? What kind of American takes money from a foreign
country to defend actions that are hurting America? A pretty lousy one, apparently.
And just in case Allyn thinks I’m questioning his patriotism, I am. He
should be ashamed of himself, but people of his ilk, paid big bucks to defend
the indefensible, never are.
Quoted in an L.A.
Times story last December,
Allyn said, “There
is a huge misperception among the U.S. public about Mexico.” No
there isn’t. Most Americans correctly recognize Mexico
as a despicable excuse for a country, held back by decades of
socialism, incompetence and rip-roaring corruption among politicians,
civil servants and police. What greater indictment of a country
is there than millions of people voting with their feet by leaving
The only misconception is Allyn’s mistaken
belief that the American public is stupid. We know that if
the illegal immigration
outrage is going to be solved, it will have to be solved in and
by our country. With friends like Mexico, who needs enemies?
O’Reilly has called for a boycott of Mexico
by U.S. travelers if lawsuits are initiated over action by
There should be a boycott of Mexico in any event, to protest
its encouragement of illegal immigration to the U.S. and the
increasingly strident anti-Americanism coming from that country.
But there should also be a boycott against Allyn’s
public relations company. His U.S. corporate and political
if they really care about America, should not continue any association
with a man who propagandizes on behalf of a foreign country whose
actions are harmful to America.
I don’t know what P.R. honors Allyn has won, but if there
were a Benedict Arnold Award he’d be a shoo-in. CRO
