Be very careful about what you do personally with the generalizations taught on this and other forums. Keep it in perspective, most hispanic people are very civilized, nice, pay taxes, work like everyone else here in the US.
Rep points if I could give them.


This is a great reply to all those people basically saying, "join us, or else".
Keep in mind, he wasnt making a threat. This is in response to many of your own prophecies of there being a bad situation for Latinos if we don't devote ourselves to your way of thinking.

And several of us here have opined that things may become ugly against any individual with a tan/light brown skin tone--------no matter their race/ethnicity.

You cant strong-arm people into changing their beliefs or opinions using fear of violence.

Instead, they accuse mach of making threats towards them.

I am well aware of the fact that the vast majority of LEGAL ‘Hispanics’ in this country are decent. My issue is not with legal Hispanics. However, by refusing to denounce this invasion, legal Hispanics have linked themselves with illegals.
Are you kidding me? If what he said sounded like a threat to you, then what about what you wrote?

The time is now to take a stand. I realize you have every right to remain 'neutral' but very soon the fence-sitting must end. Our country will collapse if we don't resolve this escalating illegal alien threat. If you are ‘Hispanic’ and do not fit the stereotypical image, you probably have little to fear. However, if you or your family members ‘look’ Hispanic, life may become rather challenging
.

What you wrote sure sounds like a threat to me. Mach50 was just responding to it.

Listen and listen well, pro illegal folks:

I jst saw online that the economy is tanking further and if is become a choice of firing Americans or tossing out illegals----------the latter will receive the axe.

Retail sales fall for first time in five months - Stocks & economy - MSNBC.com

Better they leave peacebly or be forceably deported.

Blacknight, there is no doubt that as more and more Americans are tossed aside in favor of illegal alien scabs, anger and violence WILL increase. To think otherwise is absolute folly. Personally, I'm afraid for those legal Hispanics who may get caught up in the crossfire. We either reverse the situation now or pay the price for our stupidity in the NEAR future.

It's NOT going to be pretty...

It wasn't a threat from me personally, I am not leading a resistance. I am just warning folks not to take this "shock and awe" crap on the board so seriously. Especially threads that are labeled "Are Latinos a threat to the US" there are a lot of guests that just peruse this forum and a title like that really gives off a sensation.

No one is trying to “strong-arm” you. It is your prerogative to believe whatever you choose. We are merely ‘warning’ you of impending peril. When meteorologists warn of tornadoes and hurricanes, do you consider it a "strong-arm" tactic, or do you appreciate being given the opportunity to take cover or flee prior to the storm? When it’s sleeting and you see a road sign which reads “Bridges Freeze Before Road Surface” are you offended, or do you heed the warning and take precautions to avoid sliding and a possible collision?

I’m sorry if you consider our ‘warnings’ as being antagonistic threats. You remind me of obstinate residents who refuse to leave their homes, notwithstanding repeated warnings of a Level 4 hurricane. You are free to continue with your macho mindset. Just don’t say you weren’t forewarned.

So yours was a warning, but you declared my statement a threat?
Also the difference here is that people are not weather.
