Chechen-shamed uncle, the Boston bombers and immigration reform
Written by 

chechen-uncle“Somebody radicalized them, but it wasn’t my brother” 

 “What I think was behind it: Being losers” 

The words from an incredible interview with the uncle of the two suspects of the Boston Marathon bombing.

Incredible, but also troubling for many reasons.

The uncle, Ruslan Tsarni talked with reporters from Montgomery Village, Md.  disassociates himself from his nephews, says he is embarrassed, appears to call them losers and says he has not seen them for years.

From the interview, Tsarni has found success in this country and expresses his love and devotion for America.

He has won but his brothers' family did not.  Which duality just might underscore the tensions underlying another drama unfolding on the world political stage and upon our nation's capitol today--the future of immigration reform. 

to date, most of the opposition to the compromise reform legislation headed by Cuban-nationality Republican U.S. Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, has been against the Hispanic community.  They are the faces behind the growth and social costs of the "despised" illegal immigration.     

Today, however, the immigration issue is not just Hispanic.  The young men accused of the horrific Boston disaster, the city symbolic of American patriotism are Chechen.  Their family are from Chechnya.

So, how will this revelation of immigrants inflicting terror upon us play out  on a matter before Congress today?

Here is a quote from a poster on Google+, whose expressions of anger and hate could resonate especially due to the Boston Massacre and due to decades of middle eastern terror.

Hopefully these words reflecting a xenophobic attitude could be from a mere minority of Americans and only as an emotional response from this week's tragic events. It might, however, be indicative of just how the Boston bombing could massacre the present and future hopes of millions wanting to be winners in a land born of huddled masses and immigrants.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
