I guess I'm an equal opportunity hater. I hate it when people from other countries think they have a right to come here simply because they want to, and to hell with the laws we've put in place to deal with it. I hate it when people from this country, regardless of their ethnicity, make excuses for these criminals in the name of 'humanitarian concern'. I hate it when my tax dollars are used to fund this fiasco and subsidize these illegal entrants when there are SO MANY Americans who could use that help but don't get it.

But most of all I hate sanctimonious cowards on message boards who accuse others of racially motivated hate when all those others want is our CURRENT immigration laws enforced EQUALLY, regardless of the ethnicity of the alien.

Y'all really should try to pay attention...

LOL

I LOVE it when a Conservative inevitably resorts to one of the three worse curse words in the Conservative vocabulary:

Coward!
Traitor!

and worst of the worst...

Liberal!

Now I guess you'll feel the need to go and wash your mouth out with soap.

Then you have misinterpreted, just like you and many others misinterpret the 14th Amendment. Understandable though and thank you for showing me how unjust you really are. I will no longer converse with you.

We now seem to live in a time when stating the truth makes you more of a potential target than breaking the law.

Whatever it is, it's way too much in my opinion.

I am not arguing with you there. However, there is a reason and that is this country has been through some very prejudice times, minorities have worked to become equal here. So when Americans label all illegals as Hispanics or Mexicans based on the majority, there tends to be a large group that becomes alienated.

By all means speak the truth, yes many illegals come from Latin America; Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras... but there is a point when stating it over and over, showing pictures of latin people, creates hate for those here legally and that is when it becomes mongering.

I don't want them here either, I wish this country never allowed it to get this far, but hate is not going to fix it.

Well, I suspect I "donate" at least as much as you do - but the fact is, in typical "black and white" thinking, you folks assume that just because we are against targeting the entire group of Latinos (either here or in Mexico) as either illegals or "those that side with them" that somehow we approve of illegal immigration - when in fact, we just don't like hate mongering towards whole groups of people.

What you fail to see, Ken, is that most of us AREN'T "targeting the entire group of Latinos". I target the entire group of illegals, REGARDLESS of their country of origin. Hell, half my family is Mexican, I certainly don't 'target' my own kin, they're all LEGAL.

And I also listed those things I hate just a few posts back, so stop with the unfounded accusations of 'hate mongering', would you please?
