In this AP report, “Immigrant rights activists” are described as an awakening sleeping giant as thousands of marchers nationwide chant “Si se puede!” (Yes we can!) on the traditional Communist holiday of International Workers Day, celebrated on May 1st.
Syndicated columnist Michelle Malkin rightly calls it May day/Che Day: Reconquista returns.
But AP got it wrong. American citizens are the actual giant being aroused from a lengthy apathetic slumber.
And what are the foreign nationals and their advocates angry about? Arizona’s new law dealing with the uncontrolled flood of illegal aliens in our state — driving up costs to astronomical levels in health care, education, criminal justice expenditures and social services benefits, while taking American jobs and precious lives.
At the White House, Jeff Flake’s close friend and ally, U.S. Rep. Luis Gutierrez, a “far left” Illinois Democrat, was among 35 people arrested in a demonstration of civil disobedience against the Arizona law. He was also in Phoenix last week demonstrating against it. With Chicago politics exemplifying corruption, it would seem Gutierrez would have plenty to keep him busy at home. But pushing for clean government doesn’t hold the same appeal as advocating for those in our country in violation of the law.
Juan Hernandez, the Hispanic outreach coordinator for John McCain’s failed presidential campaign attended the Dallas rally. He said Arizona was once considered by those south of the border to be a model state with particularly close ties to Mexico. Apparently the fact that we intend to protect our borders from on onslaught of foreign nationals has taken us off that dubious list. What a shame to have fallen from Hernandez’s grace.
If anyone is “mad as hell, and not going to take it anymore,” its America’s freedom-loving, and overburdened taxpaying citizens.
We are no longer slumbering and are prepared to take back our country, one law at a time. Watch us!
