As I say in my user title: Against Illegals? Well, then you're a racist. Of course the chicken droppings who left the comment didn't leave their handle....
It is just the usual pro-illegal tactics. They can't justify their anti-laws positions so they start with the insults and too cowardly to leave their names. I got the same thing a few days ago accusing me of being a member of the KKK.

Cause Guatemala has NO money and did NOTHING with there land once they blew off Mexico. The USA built what used to be Mexico into something decent so the Mexicans are butt hurt.

It has to do with this:

There were American flags, union banners and vendors hawking treats such as ice cream and hot dogs wrapped in bacon.



When they are told to wave American flags instead of their own, they lose enthusiasm. The American flag means nothing to them, it does not stir any nationalistic pride. And hot dogs also represent American culture, if they want to lure them with food, it would have to be tacos.

Your point is? Yes, I know the date on that article which is why my post says they have instead of they are. BTW: Why is the word date in parentheses in your post?

The thing is though if they are going to cry about stolen land regardless of what the present owners have done with it, they should be crying about "all" of their supposed stolen land. As you said though, it speaks volumes that they are only interested in the U.S. because it is a sucessfull and weathly country. Besides, Mexico only held parts of the southwest, not the entire U.S. so what are these invaders doing all over our country?

Many Apache, Navajo, etc. think Mexico is full of it. And Mexico stole its land from Spain. So Mexicans need to be quiet.

Brief film clips of the march were shown on the early local LA newscasts, but no major coverage. When news broke of Bin Ladens death, even those were pushed off and went away. Btw, wonder how many of the illegals know or care one bit about Bin Laden, since they seem to think that the world revolves around Mexico and Central America.

This quote cracked me up...

"It's really sad," Luis Ortiz, an ice cream vendor who has been coming to the rallies for the last 15 years, said of the small turnout. "I've sold very little, almost nothing."

In other words, he has been making money for 15 years off this country with his no doubt illegal, unlicensed vending cart. Guess what, dude...lots of Americans have been working in this country for many more years than you and now they can't even find a job! Take your sob story back over the border, and take your ice cream cart, too!

Many of these reconquista types try to claim that the tribes indigenous to this country such as the ones you named above are on their side. What a joke. Nothing could be further from the truth except for maybe a few radicals holding a grudge against the white man seeking revenge in any way they can.

That is for sure. In historical times all of the powerful warrior tribes detested first the Spanish and then the Mexicans. The Apaches in particular had a deep seated seething hatred toward Mexicans, and killed and raided them at every opportunity. The reconquistas have conveniently, for them, forgotten to study history. At no time did either Spain or Mexico settle, let alone dominate and control, more than a small portion of what they are now claiming is theirs, in either the Southwest or California. It was Americans of European descent that did, but the illegals prefer to forget that fact.
