we don't know the full story of what happened in this video, but i am pretty sure the "patriots" were provoking the guy.

kind of like this video:


YouTube - Patriot gets his ass whooped.


note how the mexicans dont even appear to be illegal.

What tipped you off? I thought it was impossible and downright racist to imply that soemone "looks" illegal.

The whole talking English without an accent thing kinda gave it away.

Plus the "Im from here, b****" part.

Nice try though.

I don't know if the people who post these videos or cheer them on like AMC think that these videos do anything to further the cause of the illegal immigrants, like "if you speak up against them, they will beat you up". Watching how these people react and reading some of the drivel posted on these discussions speaks volumes to me about what we're up against and why it's important that we take a strong stance against illegal immigration.

I will say that in that one video, the Patriot lady shouldn't have gotten in on the name calling with the Latina. She was out of line there and should've kept it professional. The guy with the camera should've seen the Mexican guy's strike from a mile away. I guess this all goes to show that those of us against illegal immigration need to know how to appropriately deal with these kinds of things and know how to defend themselves, should it unfortunately come to something like that.

The point is, these protesters complain about getting beat up, and they show a clip of an agitated Mexican. Why do you think he is so agitated?

I posted those other videos that show a little more. Protesters verbally harassing people that appear to be hispanic.

In the second video, a guy is peacefully protesting with a sign when someone goes from verbally harassing, to physically trying to take the sign out of his hand.
The guy wacks him with a paper sign and the guy starts crying for the police to take the colored man away.

If your going to make a difference on the problem of illegal immigration, push your lawmakers to make changes. Protest in front of city hall, washington dc, or whatever.

But if you go on the street and start harrassing Latino looking people with anti-Hispanic sentiment, don't be surprised if you get a backlash.

Me and Arizona Bear were having an exchange about the possibility of violence over this issue awhile back.
In most of these videos you see protesters provoking Latinos(illegal or not).

Use common sense and don't turn into a mob harassing people minding their own business. That second video really was really annoying. What a snake that guy was. "Police!! Poliiiiiiice! PUUUUU-LICCEE". You would think he was being stabbed to death.
He's lucky the guy just bomped on the head with a paper sign. The guy with that sign really held himself back.

If anyone was yelling in my face like that, and I was holding myself back, and then he suddenly tried to snatch soemthing out of my hand, his head would be bouncing off that pavement.

The one thing that concerns me is innocent people (of any race/ethnicity) who look stereotypically "Mexican' getting caught in the crossfire between the MEChA types and the anti illegal folks------if things hit the fan.
