Exactly. They were going directly to the problem, instead of protesting out on the streets just asking for trouble. Anti-illegals should learn from this.

I like it.

The marches of 2006 forced the American public to view the pro illegal immigration supporters' in their true light; hateful views, racist attitudes, and overall disdain for this country.

Things like this will only hurt their cause further, and rightfully so.
I for one am frequently called "pro-illegal" on this forum and I challenge anyone to find any posts of mine that put forth "hateful views, racist attitudes, and overall disdain for this country." Many people with views similar to mine put forth none of that. Just because we disagree doesn't mean that I am hateful, racist, or anti-American. I disagree that even the median person you would characterize as "pro-illegal" is the way that you accuse him to be.

Likewise. I challenge people to find my posts claiming that I'm Pro-illegal.

Very good challenge, but i doubt anyone will step up to take it.

Anyone slightly pro-illegal is anti-American.

I've already posted in the defense of Californio, and I'd do the same for crisp if he wasn't a supporter of amnesty. Granted, his support seems to come from an economic POV, and I haven't taken the time to point out the error in his thinking, but all the same his support of amnesty puts him in the 'pro-illegal' camp.

It is my understanding that you should be able to peaceably protest something you feel is not right in this country. To address grievances brought about by government officials who's policies and decisions you feel are in conflict with the U.S. Constitution and have the freedom to express yourself without fear of reprisals or threats of bodily harm...anywhere in this country. I know I have read about this somewhere...where the heck was it?? Oh wait here it is:

Quote:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Funny how those that bend to the left can't stand it when the same tactics they have used for decades are picked up and utilized by those that have had enough of the nonsense brought about by those that lack the tolerance to accept another person's point of view.

Then you better go to SF well armed and in large numbers because that city isn't part of mainstream America. It's an open air nuthouse.
