N.Jersey protestors clash over illegal immigration
RIVERSIDE, New Jersey (Reuters) - Opponents of a local law cracking down on illegal immigrants clashed on Sunday with residents chanting "go home" as both sides proclaimed their loyalty to the United States.Well, well, well. Isn't this interesting? There were more counter-protestors than illegal immigrant supporters? What could this mean?
An estimated 300 to 400 people gathered outside the town hall to protest a recently passed ordinance that bans hiring or renting to illegal immigrants, who are accused of overburdening local services such as schools and hospitals without paying taxes.
The protesters, representing the largely Brazilian immigrant community of Riverside, were heckled by about 500 counter-demonstrators kept at bay by police on the other side of the town's main intersection.
As you well know if you follow the medias reportage of this issue, most Americans support a "comprehensive" approach to dealing with illegal immigration. Of course, here on planet earth? Not so much, people are pissed about this issue, I'm spitballing here, but I feel very confident in suggesting that 75% or so of Americans are in violent agreement with an enforcement first, enforcement only approach toward our illegal alien invaders.
As immigration supporters accused the town's council of racism, opponents chanted "USA, USA" and waved placards saying "Scram" and "Stop Illegal Immigration." A passing pickup truck drew loud cheers by flying a Confederate flag with the motto "The South Will Rise Again."I saw this earlier on the "Anti-Idiotarian Rott," and thought it so good I must steal it outright...
Rev. Miguel Rivera, president of the National Coalition of Latino Clergy and Christian Leaders, called the Riverside law "racist." He criticized Mayor Charles Hilton by saying his initiative in passing the law was equivalent to the Confederate flag being flown by the counter-demonstrators.
The lefty definition of the term 'racist."
Racist - means “shut up!” - and is much, much worse than being violent, thoughtless or unkind. In fact, easily the worst crime ever conceived of.Oh no! The racism card has been thrown down, whatever shall we do secret squirrel? Howzabout we not assume the media be telling the truf? Here's an earlier piece detailing how the media is all too happy to peddle lies and outright BS so long as it discredits pro-enforcement folks.
Also, not to belabor the obvious but, the worst behavior they could find was a truck driving by with a Confederate flag flying, as psycho redneck ethnic cleansings go, this is quite a disappointment.
Let's hear from some of these psycho rednecks, shall we?
Larry Mourey, 52, who said he had lived all his life in Riverside, denied there was any racism in his support for the town's ordinance. He said he had no problem with immigrants as long as they were legal but objected to paying taxes to support illegal ones.Man, that's some sweet ass crazy right there, can't you just sense the rabid hatred of all brown people just oozing off the page? No? Odd, me neither, let me just take a moment and reread it. Well, I'm sure it's here somewhere, we're simply not being sensitive enough to the plight of those breaking into this country and stealing the American dream.
Lindsey Sickler, 19, said she supported the ordinance because the illegal immigrants were using local services without paying taxes, and their children are driving down school test scores because they can't speak English.
"If we were in their country and doing the same thing, they would be trying to get us out," she said.
Work harder people, bogus racism charges don't just fall out of the sky you know!
Oh, they do?
