North Carolina town split over sheriff's treatment of Latinos [conservatives need to fight]
Las Angeles Times ^ | David Zucchino

GRAHAM, N.C. — In this southern mill town, tortillas and bolillos are as common as Carolina barbecue sandwiches. Spanish-language advertisements tout Latino-owned restaurants, garages, churches and used-tire lots, and banners lining the downtown streets proclaim, "Preserving our heritage — promoting our future."

But protesters who gathered downtown last month in Court Square, near the statue of a Confederate soldier, delivered a different message: "We Want Respect" and "Terry Johnson Stop Lying."

Alamance County Sheriff Terry Johnson's approach to fighting illegal immigration has raised tensions among Latinos in the community. A two-year investigation by the U.S. Justice Department, released in September, found that Johnson and his deputies had violated the Civil Rights Act of 1964 by engaging "in a pattern or practice of discriminatory policing against Latinos."

Federal officials recently canceled a federal-county immigration policing program, and the standoff is further dividing a community already split by the area's shifting demographics. Alamance County in 1990 had 736 Latinos, and whites made up 80% of the population. Latinos now number 17,000; whites have dropped to 66%.

Conservatives need to fight back against this. We allow the LA Times [MSM], the Justice Department and all anti-conservative forces to make us back down and capitulate when they put us on the defensive by defining us, our actions and our motives.

The Left works this angle state by state. We need to stop this and not shrink in the face of their lies about conservatism.

La·ti·no: noun, plural La·ti·nos. a person of Latin-American or Spanish-speaking descent.

The LSM is of course equating "Latinos" with illegal immigrants from Latin America (an inherently racist premise).

The only desirable trait Obama and Holder see in White citizens is their tax money. Whites are here to be milked for the Democrat’s vote-buying enterprise.

I think Democrat party would love for a small race war to break out in the next year or two.
No matter what ignites it they will blame the Tea Party/ conservatives. The press will run story after story on race while Obama continues his drive to destroy America. It would make great cover for Obama...

The very first thing illegals (no matter what race or nationality) do upon arriving is try and recreate the sh*thole that they fled. I'd have alot more respect if they tried to immigrate legally and assimilate into our culture instead of just transplantig theirs here.

I know it can be done because I work with those who have done it. It's one thing to celebrate your heritage. It's another thing to actively work agaist the heritage of your new host country.

Up from Zero "Latinos" in 1980. And for the previous 350 years.

It's not immigration. It's invasion and colonization.

And the "Justice" department under the Radical Black separtist Eric Holder says it's about race? That the Americans have no right to resist Invasion as long as the Invaders aren't white?

Alamance is where the Revolution started. It could do so again.

Sounds like the battle is already lost

Preserve 'our' heritage? What heritage is that?

It's one thing to demand we celebrate YOUR heritage. It's another thing to actively work agaist the heritage of your new host country.

N-i-c-e take.

In any assesment of the size of latino voting blocs---we must factor in Mexican agit/prop put out by La Raza and numerous groups infiltrating the US----an organized Fifth Column pushing the Third World agenda. The taste of reconquista gets stronger and stronger The conniving, wily latinos know their extortionate demands will be met----but only when vote-crazed politicans clobberd by latino pressure groups----accede to Third World demands.

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

Mexico is pushing north at a furious space---salivating for reconquista and lusting for US foreign aid billions. "Pressure groups" are being pushed over the border--- financed and coached by the Third World. The wailing and whining propaganda is tailor-made for vote-crazed US politicians who will do ANYTHING for a couple of votes.

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

BLOOD-CURDLING LA RAZA STUDIES TOSSED OUT OF ARIZONA SCHOOLS La Raza Studies does not even try to sugar-coat its anti-America agenda and its bloodthirsty plans to kill off Americans: Raza Studies textbook “Occupied America,” by Rodolfo Acuña, includes a violent and blood-curdling speech given by university professor Jose Angel Gutierrez: “We have got to eliminate the gringo, and what I mean by that is, if the worst comes to the worst, we have got to kill him,” (pg. 323).

The following is taken directly from La Raza's Occupied America (pg. 167): “.......execute all white males over age 16,” (AKA the Plan of San Diego). America-hating Raza Studies teach (1) violence, (2) undermining US ntl security, and, (3) the need for Mexico to "re-take seven states in the Southwest...in order to make the SW a Chicano nation. "

SCHOOL BOARD NUT CASE Adelita Grijalva is the woman on the Arizona school board pimping La Raza indoctrination programs in Tuscon schools. Adelita is all up in arms about Raza Studies getting tossed via the AZ state legislature's action...she is the daughter of Raul Grijalva (D-AZ-7) who was narrowly re-elected to the US Congress.

Cong Raul Grijalva is one of Mexico’s most productive and loyal Fifth Column in the US Congress....aiding and abetting the latino criminal underworld, colluding to take back the SW, and loot and pillage the US treasury.

Excellent post. The Regulators began the Revolutionary War, at the Battle of Alamance in 1771 years before the Declaration of Independence— this is true despite some historians trying to say it did not spark the later anti brit revolt (they are of course wrong if one understands that these were the rugged Scotch Irish and independence loving former brits, who fought indian-style presaging the later success in routing Cornwallis— and who were fighting being forced to support the king’s agents as they lined their pockets). Yes, they lost to Tryon’s colonial/militia/ brit army.... but that is where it began— not a damn tea party. Both instances had to do with taxation and freedom. The elimination of our culture and independence from tryannical government (requiring we give illegals citizenship and they have to do not a thing to get it)is central to this issue. Freedom being the most central to both times.

Quick question-— where do the 17K “latinos” WORK in Alamance county-— or do they even work there? Somebody in NC encouraged them to come. I recall a couple of business trips to Raleigh where I was shocked, being shown the mexican consulate office in the early am with a huge crowd of “latinos” waiting to get papers NC encouraged them to get so they could work there. Who was responsible for that?
My friend is from there and also told me that up in Durham the city actually accepts matriculos cards from the illegals as id and will let them drive with them!!! Yikes.

EXACTLY! What happened to that old good manner rule: “When in Rome, do as the Romans do!’

I don't know, but there's a word for them, and it starts with a capitol "T".

We all know what's done with those guys.

PS. The Hanging Tree is an Oak in Wilkes County where the Tory William Thomas Riddle was hung for a variety of reasons, like pillaging Patriot homes, being a Tory murderer, etc.

The usual stuff.

See the tree:

It can be used again for the result of trials involving Traitors.

If Texas doesn’t successfully secede it will be part of Mexico within a decade. For that to happen Perry needs to be voted out and replaced with a true conservative who loves Texas more than himself. In other words, the exact opposite of Perry. Plus a conservative legislature would have to be elected and stop this “fix the gop from inside” crap.

With all that said, I have no idea how secession could be done.
