Geraldo blames Talk Radio for anti-immigration tone that offends Hispanics
Examiner ^ | January 23, 2011 | Marc Schenker

Posted on 01/23/2011 4:32:09 AM PST by Suvroc10

Geraldo Rivera blames Talk Radio for creating anti-immigration tone that offends Hispanics. In an interview with Bill O’Reilly from this past Friday, Geraldo Rivera launched into a tirade on the apparent tone of the immigration debate in America over the last few years. For anyone who’s ever listened to Mr. Jerry Rivers, they know exactly that he is staunchly in favor giving illegal aliens amnesty protection, which is rewarding illegals for their law-breaking disrespect of American law. After declaring that the immigration debate’s tone was vile, Rivera then went on to blame Talk Radio (as in Limbaugh, Hannity, Beck, etc.) for creating the “vile” tone in the country that is very offensive to the Hispanic community. Rivera also calls himself a Republican, apparently, an open-borders, pro-amnesty Republican, that is.

The “anti immigration tone” is a construct of the open border crowd.

Gee, I guess he wouldn’t think to blame the illegals. How about blaming the drunk drivers, the hit and runs, the home invastions, the over croweded schools, the three meals a day provided on the taxpayer’s dime, the closing emergency rooms, the “press 2 for english”.

So, just this year alone, talk radio has been blamed for the Arizona shootings, the psycho abortion murders in Philly, and now for this.

I smell a setup. Pile on the blame so they came be shut down or regulated out of business.

What a crock, this crap is already getting old.

Jerry Rivers AKA ( Giraldo Rivolver) is a loudmouth Racist Jerk and the worst cluck Fox ever hired ...
Even his name is a phony, to satisfy Affirmative Action and get on the gravy train.

“Gee, I guess he wouldn’t think to blame the illegals.”

I have listened to and watched Geraldo bloviate about this for more years than I can count. He thinks that Latinos and Hispanics own this subject. He seems to conveniently foreget that this is a country of immigrants who's roots are only a generation or two from those who came over - legally. He (Geraldo) believes that his contingent, Latinos and Hispanics) who are here in the U.S., because they illegally entered and are already here, should now receive preferential treatment and be fast tracked to the front of the line ahead of those patiently and LEGALLY waiting their turn to come to this country. As a Greek American whose father processed through Ellis Island - legally, I find Geraldo and those who are like minded and are attempting to game the system in their favor very offensive.

I actually caught part of this interview. Whoraldo’s take is that Mexicans have been coming here illegals since we took their land.

Whoraldo is Puerto Rican, he tries to identify with anything that comes along the pick when it suits him. He claims to be jewish when it suits him, he is hispanic when it suits him, he is nothing so he can claim to be anything. The man is a cardboard cutout.

I don’t know why Jerry Rivers is so offended. Conservatives are the greatest defenders of Jews worldwide.

He suffers from emotional unintelligence. There can be no "reasoning" with the emotionally immature who allow their hearts to rule their heads.

"It always stuns me that FOX keeps him around."

The reason the Left hates FOX is the fact that they allow the Left-wing mouthpieces on the air in conjunction with other more conservative voices who are able to show them up for the illogical, neurotic, emotional basketcases that they really are. The Left knows their infantile arguments cannot survive in the arena of "ideas" which is WHY they are so hell-bent on silencing opposing voices.

The Left's "reasoning" deficencies are evident (for all who have the emotional stability to see) merely by giving them a platform alongside more grown-up mentalities.

It's a beautiful thing, and VERY effective. If it wasn't EFFECTIVE, the Left couldn't care less. :)

Have we checked Geraldo’s papers recently? Why is he so upset about this issue?

Or does Geraldo have a great-aunt, three times removed, who he wants to bring into the United States — this shining welfare city on the hill that now offers free health care for all seven billion people on earth?

How about blaming the drunk drivers,...

A guy I worked with has a daughter who got married about two years ago. On the way from the wedding to the reception, a drunk illegal alien hit the parents of the bride's car, killing both of them instantly. The judge put the illegal up for manslaughter charges and a $10,000 bail. Obviously, he fled back to Mexico and has never been caught. From what my colleague tells me, the Mexican authorities have provided zero help in finding him.

“Apparently, this ahole Whorealdo doesn’t know the difference between legal immigration and illegal immigration”

He doesn’t care. Whorealdo is hispanic and he wants his hispanic amigos to be able to come to America any darn time they like an we all need to sit down and STFU about it. Intiendo?

Well Whorealdo, I’m Irish Catholic and I would like to see all of my Irish simpatico’s that are here illegally by the tens of thousands working for nothing under the table in pubs up North stay also. But that isn’t the way our immigration law works.

The sad truth of the matter is that America cannot absorb the entire under class of another nation. We just cannot afford it and we are under no obligation to change our National Identitiy. Mexico needs to make drastic changes in their own political and economic system and create their own jobs instead of exporting their throw away class to us. Why doesn’t somebody ask Whorealdo about that?

The vile tone was created by people with no regard for the law, people with no regard for other people’s property or money and politicians and others (like Mr. Rivera) who decided they could divide people into factions to gain money and power for themselves. He is a king of such crap, and for him to point a finger at anyone else is disgusting.

Maybe it’s time we see Whorealdo’s birth certificate. With any luck, we’d find out that he’s an illegal and then we can send him packing along with the rest of the freeloading, job-stealing, non-taxpaying drones that have been coming across the border for the last several decades.

World’s biggest hypocrite. Geraldo is Jewish because his mother was and all four of his wives have been very white and WASPY looking
He is a professional Hispanic who is only half Hispanic

If he married an Indian gal from Guatemala then he would have some credibility. Instead he wants to flood America with the semi-Indians (mestizos) and Indians of Mexico and Central America

Yeah right, you and David Duke.

I'm officially denying your association. You're only doing this to smear the Republican brand, much like the Westboro Baptist Church does.

You're nothing more than a typical screaming RAT.<[> Whoraldo, there is a place for people like you and your illegal alien buddies. It's called Mexico!

Geraldo and O'Weasely had a screaming match in the interview to the point that each was undecipherable. You could hear the yelling down the street.

Actually, the two are not that far apart....Geraldo wants amnesty for the 20-million plus that are here......plus no repatriations of any kind.....plus all the things that La Raza wants.....and it's all for the illegal chillun that are here, ya know. Every Freeper knows that spiel by heart.

If you listened closely, Bill O'Foolery argued, as he usually does, on both sides of the issue....agreeing closely with Geraldo at the end on amnesty for all illegals except he wants everything "done legally", the Mexicans are "doing work the Americans won't do", and that there should be "barbed wire on top of the fences" the illegals are climbing over in the various states. Real Mensa stuff.

I've maintained for years on this forum that you scratch BOR and you find a populist/European socialist

What a perro y burro show the shrieking segment was. Two show-biz phonies creating a big public drama on the tube over something they basically agree on....and fashioning a pretend-emotional issue (starring "the chillun") around an issue these two Long Island millionaires actually care about as much as my pet turtle.

“Whoraldo’s take is that Mexicans have been coming here illegals since we took their land.”

Oh, my, that old lie, again!

Mr. Reconquista, Show me yours and I’ll show you mine!

Quote from a Latino who feels this country should be his... “There will never be justice because we were displaced of our lands and until our proper identification is returned back us to, our lands will never be returned to us. But at least return us our identity. We are indigenous people to this land.”

Really? Well, Mr. Reconquista, show me yours and I’ll show you mine.

Mexicans illegally in this country had no ancestors who lived in these United States. I’ve offered the challenge to hundreds of them. The handful of Mexicans who lived here when the US bought that land from Mexico left no descendants in Mexico, especially the southern area and Central America where most illegals now come from. NO, they became AMERICANS. Their progeny are citizens.

This country is sacred land to we NATIVE born citizens, most of us with long historical ancestry. We don’t take lightly being told we don’t belong here, but you invaders do.

I have family who pioneered, built and died defending this country, many were indigenous as you claim to be, buried in Massachusetts, New York, Washington DC, Virginia, Ohio, Missouri, Georgia, Arkansas,Tennessee, Oklahoma Indian Territory, Texas, Kansas, Oregon, California, Arizona, New Mexico, South Carolina, North Carolina, Utah. There are a couple buried in Mexico.

Now, show me yours. Where do your ancestors rest?

Know this, we will protect this sacred ground. There are millions more of us than you and you can’t have enough anchor babies to change it before my fellow Americans get enough of your “attitude”. Go back to the third world you wish to impose on us and take your dream of colonizing my country with you. The sooner the better.
