Bumbling camp commandant Colonel Klink and his aide Sergeant Schultz

Bumbling camp commandant Colonel Klink and his aide Sergeant Schultz are alive and well today in the war against the illegal alien invaders from the Mexican-American border. Colonel Klink represents all sanctuary leaders such as the President of the United States and theMayors of New York City and Los Angeles, and all other management types that tell their rank and file federal, state, and local police departments (the new Sergeant Shultz's) to look the other way and do not ask questions even if they suspect anyone to be an illegal alien. It is not funny when I can easily spot illegal aliens and their criminal employers but the police who are at least as smart as I am cannot "see" them or just ignore them. The President of the United States and the mayors of NYC and LA among others are probably criminal when they tell their police departments to ignore illegal aliens and the employers of illegal aliens.

Sergeant Shultz was famous for saying, "I hear nothing, I see nothing, I know nothing!" in order to avoid becoming involved in any way. This eventually became a catch phrase of the series. One can almost hear a million police, sheriff's and deputies, marshals, FBI agents, border patrol, highway patrol, troopers, and other law enforcement officers saying the same thing. There are 19,000 police departments in the United States. The vast majority are Sergeant Shultz's and not funny when they swore to uphold the law. They are probably criminal since they do not obey the law.

Hogan's Heroes was an American television situation comedy that ran from September 17, 1965 to July 4, 1971 on the CBS network for 168 episodes. Starring Bob Crane as Colonel Robert E. Hogan, the show was set in a German prisoner of war (POW) camp during World War II. The program was a Bing Crosby production.

The show took place at Stalag 13, a POW camp located near the town of Hammelburg, run by the Luftwaffe for captured airmen. Although there was a real-life Stalag 13 near Hammelburg (formally known as Stalag XIII-C Hammelburg/Mainfranken), the one in Hogan's Heroes was entirely fictional.

The show's premise was that the POWs were actually active war participants, using the camp as a base of operations for allied espionage and sabotage against the Nazis. The "prisoners" could leave and return almost at will via a secret network of tunnels and had radio contact with Allied command. They were aided by the bumbling of the camp commandant Colonel Klink and his aide Sergeant Schultz; Hogan would routinely manipulate the incompetent Klink and get Schultz to look the other way while his men conducted secret operations.

I enjoyed the TV program Hogan's Heroes and wish it was brought back to TV, but I find the real life Klinks and Shultz's who conspire to ignore the law and allow criminals to go free to be criminal themselves. What kind of world can we have when the law is ignore for millions of illegal aliens and their employers.
