Posted on 07/18/2014 2:59:02 PM PDT by humblegunner
Today at the Mexican Consulate just south of downtown Houston a protest
against the illegal alien border surge was staged by concerned patriots.
Apparently the word got out to the opposition forces. There were 25 to 30
illegals and associated supporters there as well. Our side numbered from
40 to 50 while I was on site. We were staged on opposite sides of the street.
The illegals (they proclaimed themselves so, chanting "undocumented and unafraid")
had a small public address system and had a designated wise-ass on the mike
leading chants and taunts which actually were pretty comedic.
The public address system:
The Consulate is apparently constructed of stacked-up double-wide trailers and has a spiffy billboard in the yard.
Back to the good guys:
The cops had a load of barricades delivered and set them up on our side first:
Then they set up barricades on the illegal's side. I thought this
to be a bit futile as they all have a proven ability to hop fences.
And here is a bit of video
Some media were present and interviewed folks on both sides. I'll see if I can
locate some of that and post it down-thread. Overall I'd say our message was
heard, if only at a local level. Which beats the hell out of silence.
Eagles Up, y'all.
Seriously, excellent stand, guys. Get out in front of this and let the invaders know that they won't go unopposed.
Thanks for sharing.
“Undocumented and Unafraid” That illegal alien needs to be thrown over the border face first.
Thank you and all the patriots for being there.
Excellent! Thanks for the ping.
Love the pics. Love the spirit and, I especially love the hilarious commentary!
Thanks for posting and thanks for showing up. Like you said...it beats silence.
The signs (on our side) look great, too.
On to Conroe?
I thought that everybody in Houston was equal?
Remember any? Were they suitable for this God-fearing site?
Then they set up barricades on the illegal's side. I thought this to be a bit futile as they all have a proven ability to hop fences.
Kudos to you and your fellow patriots.
One of their chants was “We are HOME!” so I figure they must all live under the freeway there.
Yeah....the “undocumented and unafraid” is something, isn’t it?
They aren’t afraid of anything, anymore...like committing crimes, since they get off scott free - even rewarded (paid with our tax $$).
Should have been arrested on the spot.
They hollered about “You’re all immigrants too!”
I figured yeah, I drove in from outside Houston. So I gave ‘em that one.
They hollered at us for being racists which was pretty good,
since we had four or five black guys and they had none.
They made fun of our “No se puede!” signs because there was
no upside down exclamation point in front. Said they were “misspelled”.
I didn’t have the patience to school them on the difference between spelling and punctuation.
You’re gonna be heard from the front page of Free Republic now. I just bumped you.
Great job, Houston!!
God bless Texas!!
I agree with your description of the mexican consulate - what a crappy looking building and sign!
LOL....your comebacks had to be entertaining for our side. Love it!!
These are small numbers, and America is distracted. Wouldn’t a large, planned event have more impact?
We'll have some reporting in tomorrow from the DFW area.
They pushed him 'way off to the edge of the group.
