Geraldo calls Minutemen 'vigilantes'
WorldNetDaily.com ^ | September 19, 2005 | 2005 WorldNetDaily.com

Posted on 09/19/2005 8:29:18 PM PDT by Hunterb

Geraldo Rivera, senior correspondent for Fox News, told a group of Hispanic journalists vigilantes had created "hysteria along the borders" and advised his colleagues not to "let your newsroom push you around on the issue of immigration."

"Bust them on their hypocrisy," Rivera said at the annual awards gala of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists in Washington last week, according to a report by the Robert C. Maynard Institute of Journalism Education.

Rivera, who served as honorary gala chairman of the event, announced from the hotel stage that he was donating $80,000 to NAHJ and $20,000 to Unity: Journalists of Color.

"In vast sections of the country, there would not be a lawn mowed or a dish washed but for illegal immigrants," said Rivera. "I'm for not being embarrassed about who we are. If we make it, you can't forget where you come from."

Rivera was not the only speaker to raise the "hysteria" issue in an evening that otherwise honored journalists whose prize-winning stories largely involved violence, immigration and tragic death.

I no big fan of Fox News. The very sad truth is Lou Dobbs of CNN has owned the story concerning the impact of the illegal invasion on our southern border.

This JERK just insulted every decent mom and dad in America who does those things regularly and without complaint.

JERK!

Hope they fire him.

Geraldo Rivera was an illegal immigrant?

Or is he talking about skin color or country of origin?

By what "divine right" do they have to invade the country simply because of proximity?

There are proper channels to go through for immigration.

Why don't the Hispanics stand tall and welcome the Chinese illegal immigrants or Polish or Irish who also still come to America outside of proper channels?

Are they "also" doing the work that no one "else" will do?

Or is that just a bigoted outcry from a race baiting journalist, so he can sell "us against them"?

How many years ago did Freepers vote on the TV personality they hated the most? I think it was during the first Clinton campaign.

Three guesses who won (against stiff competition from all the myriads of TV mediawhores at the time).

"hysteria along the borders"

Is that anything like "hysteria by the New Orleans Convention Center?"

Mom and Dad? No, make your kids do it - even cheaper than illegals, well, not counting the health care and the education - Oh, wait! Illegals get those,too, so it is cheaper to make your kids do it.

Jerry needs to confess. Does he mow his own lawn these days or does he pay an illegal immigrant. Enquiring minds want to know.

Geraldo's dad is from Puerto Rico, making his dad a US CITIZEN. His mom is Jewish-American.

Why doesn't Fox fire this person?

It is absolutely untrue that citiens who report crimes -- and/or who form an organization to report crimes in anticipation of crimes occurring -- are "vigilantes". That word is reserved for citizens who take illegal action.

Fox should nail this mis-reporter to the wall, and FIRE HIM NOW.

How about it?

Exactly.

I remember Geraldo saying that the thing that softened his view of President Bush was his liberalism on immigration.

It is, as you say, no surprise at all.

Whoreraldo theatened the NY Slimes reporter with a punch if she had been a man. I have seen what Whoreraldo looks like after a fight. On his whorible tv show, I believe he took a chair in the face and went around with his ugly faced taped much like the character in the movie Sideways. Whoreraldo was a pioneer in trash television, but he was not as smart as Jerry Springer, who did not want to get involved in the action, he only wanted to make money on it which he did. Poor Whoreraldo is left to infecting himself on the medium not for the money, and not for the story, but simply for glory with the delusion that his pampered a** is somehow standing up for the little guy. Even though no journalist but only the lowest form of media whore would be stupid enough to think that Big Al or his associates left behind anything of value in any stinking safe.

His birth certificate reads "Gerald Michael Riviera." His father's surname was Rivera, but his is misspelled on the paperwork. He is from Brooklyn, mother was of Russian Jewish ancestry, father was Puerto Rican. Thus, what my Puerto Rican wife calls a "New Rican" - a phony Hispanic who plays up the "ethnic" angle for his own advantage.

OTOH, 'vigilante' is derived from 'vigiles' which is ancient Latin for the Republican and Imperial Roman combination police and firefighters, literally 'watchmen.' Not a dishonorable lineage at all...

The undermining of the US Constitution and our Republic is their goal. Regardless of wether they are Democrats, Republican, Progressives or what ever label they use, that is their goal. The Socialism of Europe and The failed dream of the Communists in Russia have joined together to defeat the US.

What they think they can control is the Muslims! EU and Russia, trying to put a leash on Iran and the Islamic Nations. They, the EU and Russia are a joke themselves.

The EU, is lost in the QUAGMIRE of Socialism and Communism. The EU has convienced the idiots in our Congress who have bought into the EU's Socialist Nightmare, are now trying try to lead us, the US Citizens, down the road into the Socialist Quagmire they themselves, the Dems, Repubs and Progressives are hoplessly stuck in.

For them to become Americans again, they would have to reverse their Philosophy of the New World Order and their Socialist Philosophical Dung Heap.

It's time to ask ourselves, why Europe and the rest of the world hates the US? Well we are just a little over 200 tears old, they are centuries more senior to us on the earth, but who has accomplished more, no other country in the history of the world has reached a level of civilization as we have.

My grandparents, just as your forefathers left Europe, Asia, and EVERY other country on this earth to come here, to the United States of America. I like to think that they left the lower end of the Gene pool, well look at this countries accomplishments as compared to others!

You may think I'm a little OFF!, but I think this Pope will lead the way back to common sense, he has already started.

In Spanish, "vigilante" means exactly the same thing: Someone who is vigilant, a guard, a watchman.
