After Protests, Backlash Grows

This is a photo of Los Angeles chapter of the FMLN. They’re a former El Salvadoran Marxist guerrilla group turned political party. More photo’s of the Communist May Day March can be seen here.

Washington Post

While a series of marches focused much of the nation’s attention on the plight of illegal immigrants, scores of other Americans quietly seethed. Now, with the same full-throated cry expressed by those in the country illegally, they are shouting back.

Congressional leaders in Washington have gotten bricks in the mail from a group that advocates building a border fence, states in the West and South have drawn up tough anti-immigrant laws, and ordinary citizens, such as Janis McDonald of Pennsylvania, who considers herself a liberal, are not mincing words in expressing their displeasure.

‘Send them back,’ McDonald said. ‘Build a damn wall and be done with it.’

The anger evoked a word that immigrant organizers who opposed Monday’s boycott feared: backlash. McDonald and other Americans were particularly disturbed by Monday’s boycott and civil action, attended in large part by people who entered the country illegally and are now demanding rights enjoyed by U.S.-born citizens and immigrants who entered the country legally.

‘How dare they,’ said McDonald, a research specialist for the University of Pittsburgh who said she voted for Sen. John F. Kerry (D-Mass.) in the 2004 presidential election. ‘If they are so active, why aren’t they in Mexico City, why aren’t they forcing their leaders there to deal with the quality of life? If you don’t like it here, go home.’

    I sent three bricks to my Texas delegation. Money well spent.
    Build it now, with illegal alien labor, then toss them over the wall.
    I have nothing against Americans of mexican descent. But I have everything against raza types.

    Has anyone used the outsource congress email program? I sent off emails to over a dozen Senator staffs. I requested a return “read” receipt. I am guessing that only about 50% get read or opened. The ones I sent to the staffs of Hawaii’s Senators were classified as spam. I would suggest that everyone request a read receipt. That way we can tell if they are actually listening to us or just giving us lip service.

    Click on the photos link. This is the kind of sh*t that is making me insane. In one of the photos there is a picture of a table with a protest against Coca Cola. The sponsoring organization is:

    The INTERNATIONAL ACTION CENTER, LA

    http://www.iacenterla.org/

    “Hear Ardeshir Omanni, an activist for more than forty years, co-founder of Iranian Students Association, whose anti-imperialist analysis has appeared on Counterpunch.org….”

    So now we have Iranian activitists engaged in sedition, aiding and funding illegal invaders sucking off the welfare money being taken away needy citizens like the Katrina victims. Fugedaboutit. Throw all the bums out. OUT!

    Like I said before, look at these pictures! I can’t even count the American flags. Thousands of them just in LA. Like we are supposed to believe these marchers are embracing American values. Let’s just say there were 500,000 marchers in LA holding American Flags and some seditious group like the iacenterla.org paid for them, let’s say $3.50 per flag. Folks that is $1,750,000. That is some real serious money. They are spending MILLIONS of dollars to torque these ignorant invaders up to near riot temperatures. Yesterday they were waving MEXICAN flags. THOUSANDS of Mexican flags. Today they are waving American flags. THOUSANDS of them. Millions of dollars in flags to show their colors.

    They are also carrying thousands of posters of CHE. And thousands of yellow and black posters with AMNISTIA from ANSWERLA.ORG. Four color printing costs money. They are blowing 4 or 5 million dollars a friggin’ day just to march per city! THEY HAVE A PLAN TO TAKE US OVER. Anybody seen the La Raza Mexican flag with a skull and sombrero yet? Think I’m kidding? Scroll down and look in the left margin.

    Do you think they like us? Want to be our friends and neighbors?

    Iranians, Mexicans, Cubans, Socialists, Communists, Racists and you can count on a few stone cold killers being in there somewhere. Man oh Man where are our National Guard soldiers because we are going to need them. I am tired of it. Get ‘em outta here.

    You know, if we were to spend the millions of dollars these invaders have spent in one friggin’ day on a WALL, we would have a pretty good start…. Hell, I bet you could buy a lot more bricks for the same money you would pay for a Mexican flag.

    Let the backlash begin. And vote the bums OUT.

    I checked out the photos and one really hit me to the core: There is a hand drawn picture of President Bush and the sign reads—-”Mr Bush, we don’t want to keep breaking the law”—– HELLO, they know they are breaking the law, and what’s being done about it? NOTHING, that’s what. Shame on our Goverment for allowing this to happen.

  6. physco bob Says:

    IM ALL FED UP WITH THIS B.S THAT MR .BUSH STATES THAT THEY ARE ONLY TAKING THE JOBS WE DO NOT WANT TO TAKE. BUT THEY ARE ALSO TAKING OVER THE UNIONS ALL OVER THE COUNTRY.
    THE SCHOOLS EVEN HAVE SPECIAL TEACHER SO THEY CAN BE TAUGHT IN SPANISH WHAT THEY SHOULD BE LEARNING IN ENGLISH.
    COMPANIES ARE EVEN GIVING THE OPTIONS OF ENGLISH OR SPANISH. THIS IS AMERICA.
    THE LAST TIME I CHECKED THIS WAS AN ENGLISH SPEAKING COUNTRY WHICH OUR FOUR FATHERS FAUGHT FOR AND ARE STILL DOING SO IN IRAQ.
    IF YOU STOP AND LOOK, WE ARE THE MINORITY ANY MORE AND THEY ARE THE ONES WANTING MORE. THEY ALREADY GET MORE HANDED TO THEM THEN OUR OWN PEOPLE WHOM WERE BORN HERE GET.
    I DONT WANT MY GRANDCHILDREN TO GROW UP HAVING TO BE FORCED TO LEARN TO SPEAK SPANISH TO GET BY IN AMERICA.
    SINCERILY YOURS
    TRUE AMERICANS WANTING TO TAKE BACK OUR COUNTRY.

    Psycho Bob, Yup. My daughter recently had a serious kidney infection and couldn’t afford medical attention. She went to the state university medical center where she was told “we are out of funds, sorry.” Well, she looked around and saw the waiting room full of what looked to be illegals (her opinion, I wasn’t there). She ended up paying the initial cost for an HMO doctor and I’m still working on paying the rest.

  8. Jimmy Says:

    Geoff, that is just the kind of crap that makes me dispise our government which allows this to go on. Bless your daughter.

  9. Sherri Says:

    Right on, Psycho Bob! That hits the nail right on the head! How arrogant that these illegals DEMAND that WE speak THEIR language to accomodate them! EITHER SPEAK ENGLISH HERE OR GO HOME AND SPEAK SPANISH ALL YOU LIKE!

  10. David M. Says:

    There is a hospital near my house that has a sign in, oh, about 25 different languages. The people walk in, point to the language they speak and someone goes and gets a translator. I was just dumbfounded by this, but people here just seem so desensitized by it . Scary to be honest.

  11. Eddie B. Says:

    Build the friggin’ wall. VOTE THE BUMS OUT.

    Many of you here on this site have never visited the places where immigrants originate from and as you may answer you don’t care. You post that the people in these countries suffering at the hands of their own govts. should rise up against them and demand justice. What do you think Latin America has been trying to do for the last 40 years? Every time a populist group or candidate comes to bat for the mass population, the elitists in power cry to the U.S., label the opposition groups as Marxists, socialists, communists…etc. and there we go sending military aid to support human right abuses. Why do we do this? Because the elitists in power of all those govts. protect our corporate interests. American companies set-up shop in foreign companies with limited/non-existent labor or environmental laws regulating them.. They sap the resources, provide those in power their share of the wealth and take the profits out of the country. But you say they provide jobs? Jobs yes, pay no…

    Our countries visa system also promotes the sapping of leadership in healthcare, politics, economics, and politics to become U.S. citizens and we leave these countries with a leadership vacuum. Should we be surprised that corruption runs rampant in these societies?

    The U.S. has a history on betting on the wrong horse. From Saddam Hussein, to the Shah of Iran to Manuel Noriega and ARENA political party…all of these have oppressed their people with OUR HELP.

    SO don’t sit on your righteous throne and tell these immigrants to stand in line. We have created the desperation that leads them here. You and I would be there with them if faced with crushing poverty and watching our children die of hunger and opportunity. Be honest with yourself and not hypocritical.

  13. The Watchdog Says:

    Been There,

    We cannot fight corporate globalism in the United States by giving these globalists all the cheap labor they can exploit through massive illegal and legal immigration.

    You want to give them exactly what they want to defeat them? How does that work exactly?

    If the U.S. was a life boat and we had to take in all the poor people in the world until the life boat sank, Mexico would NOT be at the top of the list.
    I would also advise poor people not to have so many children. Is America forcing these people to have more children than they can afford? I don’t think so.

    BTW - Show me some photo’s of children dying of starvation in Mexico.
