Last week, Jeff Flake’s close congressional cohort liberal Illinois Democrat Luis Gutierrez was arrested — again — outside of the White House during a rally pushing for the backdoor amnesty known as the DREAM Act. He refused to move when asked by police officers. In fact, U. S. Rep. Gutierrez sat defiantly in front of a sign that read “Stop Separating Our Families,” while demanding President Obama stop deporting illegal aliens.
In 2010, Gutierrez, an American Congressman sworn to uphold the law, was arrested in front of the White House along with about 35 other illegal alien/open border advocates.
And back in 2002, in the crème de la crème of arrests, Luis Gutierrez was taken into custody with the late Lolita Lebron. She had a novel history. In 1954, Lolita and three other Puerto Rican nationalists entered the U.S. Capitol with automatic pistols and opened fire from an upstairs spectators’ gallery onto the crowded floor of the House — firing nearly 30 shots. They unfurled a Puerto Rican flag and Lebron shouted “Viva Puerto Rico libre!” Fortunately, no one died in the attack but five U.S. Congressmen were wounded, including one who was shot in the chest.
While Gutierrez isn’t shooting automatics, he is adhering to the Saul Alinsky tactic of civil disobedience to achieve his anti-American goals, as outlined in his 1971 book “Rules for Radicals.” (H/T Public Service Research Foundation.)
You can watch the video of the arrogant Gutierrez’s 2010 arrest here. Notice the signs that declare Arizona’s SB 1070 as “shameful.” Gutierrez is a hero to the illegals who call him “the best leader in the whole world.”
Luis Gutierrez has heaped high praise on Jeff Flake, who is now running for the U.S. Senate, as Jon Kyl retires. In this article for Progress Illinois Gutierrez acknowledges Flake’s joint efforts to “help him turn more red states blue” – just the trait Arizona Republicans are looking for in their next U.S. Senator.
But in March 2009 when Gutierrez was in Phoenix as part of his 20-city amnesty tour intended to promote legalization of the millions of illegals who have entered our country in violation of our sovereignty and laws, candidate Flake was mysteriously absent.
As a candidate, he has to be circumspect, since his home district folks have scant idea of what he’s up to in Washington, DC. So he is perfecting the McCain waffle, which the stunned Arizona Republic referred to as “jarring.”
But as Gutierrez’s close friend, Flake certainly should have been the one to bail his buddy Luis out of the slammer. In light of that politically motivated Phoenix snub, it’s the least he could do.
