Screeching Rehashed Rhetoric

March 20, 2007

The War on Iraq and the War on Migrants came together in a march and rally in San Bernardino.

Notable quotes from within article:

Congressmember Joe Baca was unequivocal:

…. Then he put out the call, the core of a blueprint that one hundred and fifty organizations have united to distribute through the halls of Congress: no more deportations, unconditional amnesty, no wall at the border, no Bracero program, and family reunification.

Congressmember Joe Baca

8. Joe Baca,

A vice president from the Service Employees International Union assured the crowd, by now thinning in the uncomfortable heat of the day, that “millions of union workers are here with you today. We oppose the hate, this racist group,” pointing across the street. “We support comprehensive immigration reform. We stand here with you. We will win this year. We will fight the real terrorists–Bush and the ICE agents.” The crowd roared back, “¡El pueblo unido jamás será vencido!” [“A people united will never be defeated”.] W/E

Real terrorists? What a fool! God forbid they ever cross path’s with the real deal.

Whose troops?? Mexico has sent troops to Iraq?? WoW I need to get out more. I did not know that. 😮

In the Spirit of Zapata

The call for justice and human dignity rang out through East LA as hundred of marchers took to the streets to evoke the spirit of liberator and revolutionary Emiliano Zapata and to honor the EZLN, today’s Zapatistas.

In all seriousness would you consider stating what your heritage is? I am curious. Truly. I do not know how to ask this with out sounding like an ass. But do you have any European blood? What about your family? How do they feel about this immigration issue. Now if you are of Mexican blood/heritage then I would understand more. But if you aren’t, then what? Would you tell your Grandmother for instance, sorry but this is not your homeland. You have to go back to where your family came from. If not, It all would seem like such a contradiction. Or, are those that back the protests (that aren’t immigrants) given a special sort of
preference?

Ok Perhaps that is to personal. Let me try again. I have wondered about those that support the illegal immigrants that are not Hispanic? Not sure of the correct term any more. Have read many different views. Do they expect for theirselves and their families to go back to Europe?
Isn’t that one of the retorts against a more stringent immigration policy? I have researched this for weeks on end. And that is one of the most common threads. That a big part of America is not ours. And that we should go back to Europe.

If not, then why not?
This I will admit confuses me.

My heritage
by Leslie Thursday, May. 18, 2006 at 4:10 PM

Gawd, I’ve got to get over feeding trolls. But I suppose if I don’t answer this one, I’ll be accused of hiding my ancestry.

So for the record . . . mostly Anglo, some Irish, a pinch of French, as far as I know. But you guessed that from the picture you posted, didn’t you? So you’re really just trying to goad me, and none of your remarks are serious, in spite of your opening comment.

But I’ll answer your question anyway: That’s not for me to ask my family, now is it? Remember, those who are fighting for Indigenous land rights reserve the right to make the decision about who gets to live here. They haven’t handed it over to you or me.

How positively righteous of her. All of the work and none of the spoils. To be admired, truly.

Hey leslie why don’t you get yourself one of these cute little ensembles and then you would blend right in. Then there would be no need to request citizenship in aztlan.

The beauty part is that a bad hair day would not be an issue.

Will they allow anchor babies or green card marriage’s in the the land of aztlan?

I wonder if they will allow illegal aliens. Hmm…

WHAT ASSIMILATION?

What does The Press-Enterprise mean by assimilation?
The editorial (“Amnesty, no” Our Views, March 28) makes the implicit argument that an unwillingness to assimilate makes immigrants unworthy of citizenship.
But the article only tells us what assimilation isn’t. It say it’s not Chicano power and it’s not recognizing that parts of the United States were formerely Mexican land.
That leads me to some very distateful conclusions about what The Press-Enterprise means by “assimilation”.

What a loon! Text book case. Liberal leftisim in it’s raw form.

Just Say No To Amnesty@ A view from flyover country

The federal government talks of terrorism. Well, when American citizens are not able to walk the streets of major cities because gangs of illegal aliens, not police, control those streets, we class that as terrorism.

There was a time, back in my distant memory, that when a bureaucrat came upon illegal aliens they would have them apprehended and deported. The same laws are still on the books. But, apparently those laws no longer need to be obeyed by anyone.

Both sides of the fence destroying America

An Apt Analogy for Bush Amnesty

George W. Bush, for reasons known only to his therapist and pet snake, is intent on destroying America. His number one objective seems to be allowing enough peasants to come here illegally so that America itself will decay into a third-world cesspool akin to Mexico. Read more

Liberal Hypocrisy on Illegal Aliens

Anyone doubting the hypocrisy of Democrats should consider the following liberal positions with respect to illegal invasions:

* Invading a foreign nation is wrong–except when it comes to illegal aliens from Mexico who invade America;

    It’s more often translated “a people united will never be defeated”.

    Thanks TLB!

    I admit I used an online translator. I’ll edit to reflect the translation you have given me.

    One point I made during a conversation on this topic with my immigrant mother-in-law who came to this country legally, learned the language, and now works in banking, and hates everyone of these law breakers, “There isn’t a single Mexican who does not have European blood in them. There are no pure Aztecs, Mayans, or Olmecs any longer. So, I laugh at those who say this is ‘their’ land. There was no Mexico until Cortez showed up. These whiners are our Palestinians except that the country of their birth will take them back.”

    Sorry for the mini-rant, but all of this immigration talk is horse dung.

    Becoming American should not begin with breaking our laws…

    Hiya JCrue
    Sounds like your MIL is as American as you and I. As it should be. Yes Mexican blood is infused with European blood. Maybe not that they wished it to be. But true none the less.

    They are our Palestinians…
    Rant all you like, it is fine by me. 🙂
