The Tulsa World blasted 1st District Congressman John Sullivan (R) in an unusually harsh editorial in this morning’s edition. The editorial writer claims Sullivan is jumping on the bandwagon of those groups who use hate-filled speech, fear-mongering, bigotry and distortion of facts, about these people, claiming to be protecting our way of life.
What prompted Sullie’s remarks is a comment Tulsa Police Chief Dave Been made about a 20 year policy of the TPD’s treatment of economic refugees who are here without permission. Chief Been said, “The policy, in short, is that Tulsa officers do not track down and arrest immigrants because they might be illegals.” Officers also tap information from illegals to help solve other crimes.
Some local RWR groups are after Mayor Taylor to fire Been because of his ‘hands off’ policy toward this group. Seeing an opportunity to score some points with these myopic xenophobes, Sulllivan joined their chorus.
The World is right about Sullivan…..to paraphrase Frosty Troy, “he’ll stoop so low that it’ll take a depth-finder to locate his social conscience.”
