Default Debunking Pro-Mexican-Immigration Propaganda

I found this site and it pretty well sums up some of the problems.

Debunking Pro-Mexican-Immigration Propaganda

Introduction

Advocates for allowing more Mexicans to immigrate illegally and legally to the USA have a battery of myths, bad arguments and outright lies -- in a word propaganda -- that they use to further their cause.

The point of this web page is mainly to address the sheer ludicrousness and/or infantility of that propaganda, which is so often conveyed by corporate and alternative news sources. They repeat their messages over and over, hoping that lazy thinkers will come to accept them without question.
In addition, although both liberals and Bush conservatives consistently and conveniently turn a blind eye to the fact, some of the propaganda and the people who promote it is downright racist. These people openly speak of "reconquista" (reconquering) of the US Southwest, and they are motivated by racism and power-lust.
It is important to ask, why is the infantile logic of supporting illegal immigration and even promoting racism being pushed by the media? What political purpose does it serve? An overview:
  • Agribusiness needs more cheaper-than-slaves workers for their fields and illegal Mexicans useful for that.
  • Small businesses seek illegals because they are cheap as slaves and desperate, unlike teenagers and other citizens.
  • Unions hope to find new dues-paying members by courting illegal Mexicans.
  • Democrats hopes to find new loyal voters by courting illegal Mexicans and floating the possibility of amnesty. (Hungry for power Hillary Clinton hired La Raza activists to run her presidential campaign.)
  • The Catholic church hopes to find more suckers believers and easy money by courting Mexicans.
  • The elites' mouths water at the prospect of further dividing Americans and maintaining their power, distracting us from the fact that they control both political parties, from 9/11 having been an inside job, and from international bankers and the Federal Reserve holding our country hostage.
  • Upper-middle-class Americans profit personally as illegals take on the role of underclass -- as nannies, cooks, gardeners -- disturbingly similar to that of black slaves in the Old South.

It only makes sense since Mexicans make up the MAJORITY of illegals in our country.

Zack Smith, journalist extraordinaire,

...he of the respected news organization Newsarama.

Get real....

His imaginative characterization of an entire supposed 'movement' and the supposed debunking of their 'myths' is more of his imagination than any objective look at any reality that he's able to identify.

Just who are these members of his supposed 'movement' that he's debunking?

He doesn't say.....
.
..

Pretty interesting concept though,

....that one set of propaganda can 'debunk' another.

Is that the best there was?

Odd that you quote my response and then reply with something that has no relevance to what I posted.

As if you don't do the same thing several times a day. I see you're all over this forum lately annoying the hell out of people with your psycho babble, conspiricy theories and pointless rants. No one really cares what you think, you're just talking to amuse yourself by irritating others. As the OP's post suggests, all the pro-illegal propaganda religiously repeated by uber-liberals such as yourself is complete BS, as we all already knew. We will continue to fight until we win, like it or not.

Yet Anti-Illegals blame the Mexicans only.

That is not true of course. I know that you don't believe that but wish to use it as people like to call people who are against illegal immigration racists and such. But hey, you go ahead and post your propaganda and mistruths.

I guess you weren't around when Arizona Bound was posting. And about anti-illegals being racist, I would like to find out that logic for myself.
