The Coming Latino Revolt
Daily Beast ^ | December 2, 2010 | Bryan Curtis

Posted on 12/02/2010 6:49:03 AM PST by La Lydia

It’s zero hour for the DREAM Act...For two years, Barack Obama failed—or, if you prefer, refused—to nudge along a major immigration bill. The last-ditch hope is that departing Democrats, and a few Republicans, somehow band together in the lame-duck session and pass a law allowing illegal immigrants who came to the United States as minors to gain citizenship. Harry Reid promised to bring up the bill for a Senate cloture vote this week. Republicans vowed to scuttle it...

But as Chicago congressman Luis Gutiérrez prepares for a rally at a church in Brooklyn, the DREAM Act seems like the end of his interest in congressional gamesmanship rather than the start. Gutiérrez is one of several Hispanic leaders who have found themselves politically estranged from the president. Moreover, they are numbed by the legislative process that denied them a vote on immigration reform, much less a victory, when Democrats controlled both houses of Congress...“The opportunity to have gotten it done is gone.”

The DREAM Act, Gutiérrez says, is for now his final legislative maneuver. He’s finished waiting for the mythical 60th vote to materialize in the Senate. No, when the lame duck ends, Gutiérrez and his movement allies will ask for a divorce—from the Democratic Party...To hear Gutiérrez tell it, Hispanic leaders are about to stage a full-tilt campaign of direct action, like the African-American civil-rights movement of the 1960s. There will be protests, marches, sit-ins—what César Chávez might have called going rogue. The movement will operate autonomously, no longer beholden to wavering Democrats, filibustering Republicans, and—perhaps most tantalizingly—no longer beholden to Barack Obama...

Think about it. Tens of millions of foreigners invade our country, and then take to the streets and create chaos demanding we change our laws. Will we put up with it? Gutierrez is a demagogue who represents a foreign power. This is all wrong.

I like legal immigrants who want to be Americans. I want illegal aliens to be arrested, to have their property given to the “underprivileged”, to have them tried and, if convicted, jailed and then deported never to be allowed to stain this country's shores again.

We need to mass deport or imprison ALL illegal aliens, including their anchor babies, seal and secure the border with a wall and fence, and have a lethal response to anyone who tried to re-enter illegally. I’m tired of these leeches.

Any analogy with the civil rights movement of the ‘60’s doesn’t cut it. African-Americans were American citizens who had suffered under the oppression of slavery and segregation. This is basically a movement of foreigners who came to this country illegally to enjoy the benefits of this country that they couldn’t get at home.

I agree. My proposal:

Illegal immigrants over age 18 should be tattooed in a distinctive way, then dropped over the border.
Anyone found inside the US with such a tattoo is a two-ime offender and can be shot on sight by any American citizen.
Illegal immigrants over age 12 should be put in prison until age 18. Then tattooed and dropped.
Illegal immigrants under age 12 can be delivered to their country of origin. They can repeat the offense without penalty as many times as they want -- until age 12.

In addition (of course) US business owners and people in the real estate business should face heavy, heavy fines for having anything to do with undocumented workers. And government agencies should face bigger fines for providing any services to illegal aliens.

I'm very zero tolerance on this. We have an invading army inside our borders, and it is time to fight back.

I look at the situation broadly:

Wall St is a criminal enterprise.
My bank is cooking the books.
The federal government lies to me.
My state government lies to me.
Moochers benefit from laws.
Productive people are punished by laws.
Illegal immigrants have the run of the place.

There is no social constract. There are no rules. I think they want anarchy, and I think they are going to get it.

You're right, that is the interesting part. Obma is a narcissist and that is key. He doesn't love this country and wont't move an inch to protect the sovereignty of her citizens but let these illegals defy HIM...let them criticize and march against HIM and all hell can break loose.

Remember the Hater-in-Chief telling Hispanics to "Punish Their Enemies" by voting Democrat Nov 2? Could be Ohaha is in collusion with Mexico.

Mexico is itching to start the takeover of US territory. Illegal invaders are the advance troops for Mexico's plans for reconquista. And we taxpayers subdize them as they suck up endless US govt freebies. The invaders send billions of US dollars back home---the Mexican federales get a cut.

It took the conscience of Arizona to tell the world: things endemic to these Third World savages-----drug-running, illiteracy, serfdom, slavery, ruling elites, armed street patrols, mob rule, bribery as a way of life-----do not fly here.

========================

Americans are wising up to the pro-illegal alien groups...........agitators like the tax-funded La Raza, MALDEF, MEChA, and other Hispano-Racist hate groups........People suckered-in by the "here for a better life" scam should ponder this:

WAITING TO GET THEIR ORDERS FROM MEXICO
Reconquista shock troops at Phoenix Capital protest, May 29, 2010.

May Day Marchers plot to takeover the USA, shooting cops in the process.
SIGN: "You owe us America. We will shoot more Arizona police until we get free."

========================================

The Obama admin continues to tolerate this ntl-security nightmare of illegals using multiple identities for fear of offending the Mexican government, the National Council of La Raza, and other immigrant advocates....all of whom are providing Democrat voters to endangered Dems. This outrage is burdening taxpayers and polluting our election system----b/c these criminals adopt multiple fraudulent identities.

Keep in mind, all the evidence shows illegals establish several identities with phony SS nos and fake documents (which these "poor immigrants" buy from document brokers for several thousand dollars). Illegal parents get anchor babies SS nos. The SS nos are used to establish fake identities. Endangered Dems are pushing to get all those fake identities to vote.

May Day Marchers plotting to takeover the USA, raping and killing Americans and shooting cops.

I certainly can’t predict the time frame, but we’ll be seeing the Balkinization of the US. Less that 40% of Americans are supporting every group living off government handouts.
We’re broke. You see the EU coming apart. Riots in the streets as government welfare dries up. Economic nationalism is on the rise.
I’m no whiz bang, and haven’t stated it very well, but that’s what you’ll be seeing here.
It’s a survival thing.

Preparations are underway for Communist-created chaos. We The People communications are under assault as an integral part of such preparations.

The Fairness Doctrine, control of food and control of the Internet “infringement” bills are absolutely necessary for a Communist takeover.

Bypassing the Congress and the court who said no to any Internet regulation is a no-brainer proof.

Where were 0b0z0 and his Communist Czars when it came to the “Infringement” on US Government property by WookieLeaks?

When the sink is overflowing, you can mop all you want, but until you shut off the faucet, you will just continue to have to mop.

Build the darn wall along the border already. Follow this up with a cut in all social services benefits to folks who cannot prove that they are in this country legally.

Stop the inflow, stop the benefits, and the people here illegally will self deport.

If they are stupid enough to try it, then it will be time to round up every protester to check and see if they are here legally.

If not send them back.

Make different laws for dealing with illegals. They are NOT protected under our Constitution. They are not citizens.

Perhaps the death penalty for any protester that is here illegally and commits any act of violence, or even a threat.

The time for tolerance has ended.

*I'm very zero tolerance on this. We have an invading army inside our borders, and it is time to fight back.*

I totally agree ClearCase Guy!

Here's a good plan to bring up whenever you here talk among illegal aliens about Aztlan:

"The ONLY people that can say they were in AZ first are the Native Americans that were already on this side of the border. The descendants of the very few Mexican citizens that were in AZ 150 years and did not choose to go over the border back into Mexico at any point in the last 150 years can claim they were here first. The ones that stayed in Mexico have NO claim. Any illegals sneaking in now have ZERO claim. The United States won it 150 years ago. Mexico had AZ for only about 25 years and there were only around 10,000 in the SW when we won the war.

The United States was very generous when we won against Mexico. Mexico started the war. We won and could’ve taken the entire country fair and square as the spoils of war.

We charge Mexico for the land that they have now. Sell all their valuable assets, as the Soviet Union did when they took over Eastern Europe, charge Mexico for ALL the social services that we have squandered on illegal aliens including hospital visits.

Charge Mexico for all the lost wages and unemployment paid to legal Americans over the decades because the illegals took their jobs and made everyone's pay in the Estados Unidos lower by having a much too large pool of labor.

Put all the illegal aliens into Belize and Guatemala because it is a very small border to protect and pay those countries a few billion dollars out of what we make on the sale of the assets of Mexico to send every citizen of Mexico into their country since legally ALL of Mexico should, by rights, belong to the USA."

Riots in the streets may be how things are done in the third world hell holes your average Hispanic illegal immigrant comes from.......

But we have little tolerance for it in the USA.

I say bring it on. Let us see the ugly face of our foreign invaders, let them wave the Mexican flag and talk about “reconquest”.

Noting could do more to make America resolved to END our illegal labor problem.

We wouldn't have a problem with illegal immigration if not for illegal labor.

When illegal labor is made economically nonviable, we will no longer have a big problem with illegal immigration.

Here’s my Dream Act:

We put together two large teams of Special Ops guys.

One team works with LEOs and deputized citizens to start rounding up every last illegal.

The other team drops in and secures the main airport in, say, Somalia.

We start shipping every last illegal, regardless of country of origin, to Somalia. When we finish, we bring the Somalia team home.

To save time and effort on our part, and out of compassionate regard for our illegal brothers and sisters, we first give them a month to get back to their countries of origin voluntarily before implimenting this plan.

Yes, but the interesting part is that they are turning on Obama and defying him.

You all must not listen to Glenn Beck. Van Jones has said the radicals will have to come into the street "to force Obama to do what Obama knows is right." If the DREAM Act fails, and the illegals riot, I believe that Obama will legalize them by pardon. When Republican congressmen, governors and state legislatures rebel, Obama will move regular troops and his private army of former illegals to make hostages of them (as the Roman Senate was of the mob and the emperors) and take total power.
