Would you invite this man to your BBQ?

As Arizona firefighters continue to tackle wildfires which have already burnt over 732,000 acres of land, a blame game is brewing which is only adding fuel to the flames. US senator John McCain has blamed illegal immigrants for starting some of the fires.

There is substantial evidence that some of these fires have been caused by people who have crossed our border illegally

What evidence? Well, Senator McCain is not saying. Speaking to CNN, the outspoken senator said that illegal immigrants started fires to send each other messages!!! WTF. Don’t they have mobile phones? Smoke signals? He also said that illegal immigrants started fires to keep warm and distract police officers. Again, evidence to back up these ludicrous claims? No. And as for keeping warm, the current temperature in Arizona? 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Keeping warm in a desert?

Is this a smoke signal or for keeping warm? Or just a wild, raging fire.

Without any public evidence to back up his claims of blame, there has been retaliation.  “People are looking for someone to blame. It’s easier to fan the flames of intolerance, especially in Arizona,” said Randy Parraz, a civil rights advocate and no stranger to Mr. McCain having successfully ran against him in 2010.

This isnt the first time Senator McCain has blamed illegal immigrants for life’s ills. In 2010 he blamed illegal immigrants for home invasions and murder. (http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/john-mccain-immigration-reversal-complete-danged-fence/story?id=10616090)

Angelo Falcon, the president of the National Institute for Latino Policy, criticized McCain for what he called “increasingly blatant” political opportunism and in a letter to CNN, he said that Mr McCain, without releasing his evidence, may as well “blame aliens from outer space for the fires“. Hear hear.
