ABSOLUT IDIOCY: RECONQUISTA VODKA (Michele Malkin on invaders' plotting against America)
NY POST ^ | April 10, 2008 | MICHELE MALKIN

Posted on 04/10/2008 4:51:41 AM PDT by Liz

.....my e-mailbox lit up with messages about a new Absolut ad catering to Mexicans who believe the American Southwest belongs to them. (That extreme ethno-supremacist idea is not news to anyone who has paid attention to the massive illegal-alien marches where "This is our continent, not yours" has been a rallying mainstay.) Favio Ucedo, creative director of leading US Latino ad agency Grupo Gallegos, (not involved in the Absolut campaign), explained the reconquista-endorsing ad: "Mexicans talk about how the Americans stole their land, so this is their way of reclaiming it. It's very relevant and the Mexicans will love the idea."

Oops. Guess he didn't get the liberal talking-points manual: You're supposed to deny reconquista exists and label anyone who criticizes it as a delusional racist. The National Council of La Raza claims that reconquista is just a "code word" invented by "hate groups" who are dreaming the whole thing up.

Absolut's initial response to complaints was to hang up on consumers who phoned and to delete their e-mail. For its part, the open-borders Associated Press attempted to minimize Americans' widespread opposition to the Absolut ad and persisted in labeling reconquista views "fringe." I direct them to the speech given two weeks ago by Hillary Clinton campaign co-chair Dolores Huerta, who railed, "We didn't cross the border, the border crossed us" and gloated that immigration enforcement is moot because the reconquista is won. "It's really too late," Huerta said. "If 47 million [Latinos] have one baby each . . . it's already won."

"It's really too late," Huerta said. "If 47 million [Latinos] have one baby each . . . it's already won."

It's time to declare these lawless invaders and their supporters on American soil (1) persona non grata, and, (2) enemies of state. Their words and actions clearly are intended to undermine the US government and to endanger the safety and security of US citizens.

SUGGESTED LEGISLATION: Any person who pledges loyalty to a foreign country and by their words and actions are found to be colluding with foreign entities to undermine the US government are declared "persona non grata"........ and are hereby expelled. Congress will declare invaders squatting on US lands, sending money out of the US to prop up foreign governments to be enemies of state; crimes against the United States of America's sovereignty will be prosecuted.

Heck, from my experience even a lot of FReepers don’t get it.

I think it’s because Bush is part of the open borders gang.

Loyalty to him, has blinded many here to the mess happening all around our border with Mexico.

In places with many illegals (like here, southern Cal), you can see it in their eyes.

We ... are the interlopers. It’s not our state, to them. Not too far down the road, it won’t be, for real.

It’s happening. And nobody seems to care.

Mexico Complains Of Too Many Repatriated Mexicans
Judicial Watch | 4-7-08
FR Posted on 04/09/2008 by kingattax

The U.S. border state leading the battle against illegal immigration with unprecedented tough laws has received complaints from Mexico’s government that too many Mexicans have been repatriated and the country is overwhelmed with demands for housing, jobs and schools.

Fed up with the devastating effect of illegal immigration, Arizona has enacted the nation’s toughest laws to curb the problem and evidently its working. State legislators have passed laws barring illegal immigrants from receiving government services, posting bail for serious crimes and winning punitive damages in lawsuits. This year a new law makes it illegal for businesses to hire undocumented workers and those that do can be shut down.

The state legislator who sponsored the work bill, Representative Russell Pearce, says the law’s undeniably positive effects include smaller class sizes, shorter emergency room waits and an overall huge savings to taxpayers. The Republican congressman drafted the bill because studies revealed that illegal immigration cost Arizona taxpayers over $2 billion annually, not including the toll of crime and destruction.

It turns out that enough illegal immigrants have either fled the U.S. or been deported that officials in the Mexican state of Sonora, which shares an extensive border with Arizona, have complained that too many of their fellow countrymen have returned. --SNIP--

Wow, I didn’t realize that only women were crossing the border illegally.

“We didn't cross the border, the border crossed us” and gloated that immigration enforcement is moot because the reconquista is won. “It's really too late,” Huerta said. “If 47 million [Latinos] have one baby each . . . it's already won.”

If statements like this made by the beast's campaign co-chair Ms. Huerta don't wake people up out of their collective stupor, nothing will. We, as a nation, are at a crossroads. The question is which fork in the road are we going to take. Turn left and you will have a country with open boarders, amnesty, a bulging third world invasion with little to no marketable skills, anchor babies and an ever expanding welfare state. Or turn right and try to bring back a little sanity by strict border and visa enforcement, mandatory assimilation, deportation of anyone found guilty of violating our laws, tangible employer penalties for hiring illegals, forced immersion into the English language by eliminating English as a Second Language programs in the public schools, and the requirement that one has to pass a physical administered by the federal government to qualify for legal immigrant status in the country.

It's obvious to me which road we have decided upon. I'll leave you with this thought to ponder: 80% of all American population growth between now and 2050 is projected to come from current immigrants (both legal and illegal) and their children. These are the same people who will be paying our Social Security benefits in the near future (Sarc). Good luck with that.

Should the Absolut borders ever come into being, the society within will be the same as Mexico’s is now: corrupt and poor. The land doesn’t matter. The philosophy does. Of course, thanks to our libs, the philosophy north of the new border won’t be much better.

North of the border, is already becoming like south of the border.

This morning here on the news in Los Angeles, the so-called “mayor” (you may have heard of him, his name is Tony Villar, he changed it to make it sound more ethnic - by adopting the nom de guerre “Antonio” - then to further offend included the name of his wife Raigosa, who he then cheated on and dumped)

Tony Villar - doesn’t want ICE to check on employers who hire illegals.

He’s sold out. Most California politicians are now working for the other side.

It’s only a matter of time now.

California is in the process of being lost. But the process will not stop with California.

In fact, once it starts, how will it be stopped?

Here is another example of what Globalism produces, as soon as ideas such as Nationalism, and Patriotism are discarded in favor of a larger “Global” concept, borders no longer matter.

That and the US Chamber of Commerce is utterly in the illegal alien camp, they buy senators the way ordinary Americans buy loaves of bread.

Land for peace.

Great idea. Let’s give America away. One state at a time. Neville Chamberlain for a new era.

Let’s give away our country. Let’s give away our jobs. Let’s give away our factories.

Let’s just give everything away!

Then everyone will know how “nice” we are.

That will keep America strong.

“Huerta gloated: “If 47 million [Latinos] have one baby each.......it’s already won.”

Huerta better watch her mouth----colluding with the invaders to undermine the US government can generate B-I-G trouble.

This nitwit mamsita should realize Americans do not take kindly to people who come here under false pretenses.

Unlike the corrupt hellhole she lives in....the US has laws against undermining the US government.

The invaders say "I come here for a better life " translates into "I come here to loot and pillage the US for mother Mexico."

QUESTION: Just who is getting a cut of the $50 billion in US govt benefits (and drug proceeds?), laundered through Western Union, the lettuce pickers send back to Mehico?

Excellent points, Aunt B.

Juan McCain is dangerous to the sovereignty of the United States.

Senor McCain better wake up and smell the enchiladas.

THIS LEGISLATON JUST PASSED IN ARIZONA--JUAN'S HOME STATE:

Fed up with the devastating effect of illegal immigration, Arizona has enacted the nation’s toughest laws to curb the problem and evidently its working. State legislators have passed laws barring illegal immigrants from receiving government services, posting bail for serious crimes and winning punitive damages in lawsuits. This year a new law makes it illegal for businesses to hire undocumented workers and those that do can be shut down.

The state legislator who sponsored the work bill, Representative Russell Pearce, says the law’s undeniably positive effects include smaller class sizes, shorter emergency room waits and an overall huge savings to taxpayers. The Republican congressman drafted the bill because studies revealed that illegal immigration cost Arizona taxpayers over $2 billion annually, not including the toll of crime and destruction.

It turns out that enough illegal immigrants have either fled the U.S. or been deported that officials in the Mexican state of Sonora, which shares an extensive border with Arizona, have complained that too many of their fellow countrymen have returned. They miss the remittances sent from the U.S. as well as smaller class sizes in local schools.

Mexican government officials knew Arizona’s tough employment verification law would become their worst nightmare, which explains why they tried blocking it. Earlier this year a delegation of nine legislators from Sonora toured Tucson and held a news conference to say that their beloved state cannot handle the demand for housing, jobs and schools resulting from illegal Mexican workers returning home.

One baffled Mexican legislator, Leticia Amparano Gamez, asked in Spanish “how can they pass a law like this?” She went on to explain that Mexico is not prepared for the “tremendous problems” it will face as more and more Mexicans working in Arizona and sending money to their families return to hometowns in Sonora without jobs. Another member of the Mexican delegation, Representative Florencio Diaz Armenta, asked “what do we do with the repatriated?”

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

MEMO TO MEXICO: We could care less what you do with repatriates. They're your problem. Too bad you're not "prepared" to handle it---maybe if you people weren't so corrupt you'd be able to care for your poor instead of tossing them over the border to sponge off Americans.

Juan Hernandez alert: Speaking tonight at Baylor U. (McCain's Point Man for Shamnesty)
Michelle Malkin.com | 04/10/2008 | Michelle Malkin
FR Posted on 04/10/2008 by KentTrappedInLiberalSeattle

For those of you in the Baylor University area, tonight is your chance to ask Juan Hernandez about his radical, open-borders agenda and his role in the McCain campaign. The event is free and open to the public. Bring your video camera:

Dr. Juan Hernandez, author of The New American Pioneers, will speak at 6 pm Thursday in Kayser Auditorium on Mexican immigration. His lecture will be based on his notes, “Why are We Afraid of Mexican Immigrants?”

Hernandez, a member of former Mexican President Vicente Fox’s cabinet (as Reconquista Director), will be the final speaker for The Academy for Leader Development and Civic Engagement’s spring lecture series on leadership in public life. Hernandez has previously served as a speaker in Chapel. “Participants will gain another perspective on the issues of immigration; hopefully expand the dialog on immigration reform asking the question, ‘Where should we as a nation be in creating reform on this issue?’” said Ramona Curtis, director for Leader Development and Civic Engagement. “When I met Dr. Hernandez last year, I found him to be very passionate about communities working together for the greater good. No matter where you stand on the issues of immigration, this lecture will prove to be engaging.”

Hernandez has a lengthy history of involvement in the Hispanic community. From serving as the first United States-born member of the Mexican cabinet to founding the Organization for Hispanic Advancement in October 2003, Hernandez is a proponent of immigration reform. “He’s playing a key role nationally by facilitating an important discussion about immigration, and he’s certainly an expert on the topic,” said Dr. Frank Shushok, dean for student learning and engagement. “He has strong opinions about immigration reform that will spur on needed dialogue among students.”

Ask him about this comment: ““We must not only have a free flow of goods and services, but also start working for a free flow of people.”

Ask him about his lobbying for illegal alien driver’s licenses and Mexico first.

Ask him about his defense of Mexican bus operators carrying illegal aliens to the USA, and promoted extending banking privileges to illegal aliens.

Ask him about this comment: “I want ‘em all to think Mexico first.”

Ask about his work for the Soros-funded Reform Institute. LINK Previous Juan hernandez blogging.

I poured out an unopened bottle of absolut pi$$ last night. I will never buy it for my guests again. I do not drink very often myself... but I will vote against anti-Americanism with my $$$$$$$.

Should have taken it back. They would probably taken it back if the seal was intact.

You know, it takes a real numb nut to come here and advocate the turnover to Mexico of the state where the forum he is posting on exists.

When folks come here to slap California around as if nothing good exists here, I wish they would keep that in mind.
