The haters weigh in

For the most part, reading the venom-filled tirades of the anti-immigrant hate groups is a stomach-turning experience that should be approached with caution. Do it too frequently and you’re likely to find yourself battling depression and a sense of disbelief that such mean and narrow-minded people are among your fellow citizens.

Every now and then, though, it’s worth doing – if only as a reality check and reminder of how far we have to go as a country.

Today’s dose of bad tasting medicine comes from the group that calls itself ALIPAC (Americans for Legal Immigration Political Action Committee) and a toxic broadside/email alert it has launched against U.S. Supreme Court nominee, Judge Sonia Sotomayor. Here are some of the lowlights:

Concerned citizens across America are calling the US Senate to express their opposition to Sonia Sotomayor, but La Raza and other pro-invasion groups are in high gear supporting her.”

“Pro-invasion” is ALIPAC’s descriptor for groups that don’t favor rounding up all undocumented immigrants into concentration camps and dumping them on the other side of the U.S. border.

Here are the group’s stated reasons for opposing Judge Sotomayor:

1. Has made several statements indicating that she feels judges should apply laws based on their personal opinions, instead of the law or the Constitution.

2. Has made racist or bigoted comments that are offensive to tens of millions of Americans of every race who feel such comments are unbefitting of a judge.

3. She is a member of the radical racist group called the National Council of La Raza (NCLR), which translates as the National Council of the Race. Sotomayor’s membership and support for La Raza indicates that she is in favor of both amnesty for illegal aliens and taxpayer benefits for illegals.

Obama has made a major political mistake nominating a Hispanic Supremacist as his Supreme Court nominee.

Our goals are to either 1. Stop the nomination of Sonia Sotomayor to the US Supreme court or… 2. Cost Obama every single supporter we can for this outrage.”

And this:

If you hear any talk radio show commentator or show host say something positive about Sonia Sotomayor or something like Glenn Beck said last night, ‘She is a shoo-in for the nomination.’ (sic) then light up that person’s phone lines, and or e-mail box immediately to say, ‘I expect you to fight back against Obama and his racist pro-illegal alien allies like Sonia Sotomayor. We can defeat these people, yes we can and you need to get with the Americans who are fighting back to win!’

Many other groups on our side of the immigration issues as well as gun rights groups are mobilizing.

Let’s get everyone focused on this important activism this week.”

Well at least not everything in their alert is nonsense. That last sentence makes some sense.

    Don’t let down your guard on E-Verify?

    We settle more new immigrants annually, than any other country in the world.

    It’s our phone calls that can derail any thoughts of another AMNESTY? Fill their eardrums with public rage not to undermine E-Verify. WE WANT A PERMANENT FOR EVERYONE WHO COLLECTS A PAY CHECK! Today! As never before they are reacting and listening to millions of patriotic Americans and pro-sovereignty groups, in which E-Verify have become a solid foundation to identify and remove foreign labor. Taxpayers money should be spent on infrastructure, our own weak and sick, our veterans who are homeless, our unemployed and those who real immigrants who respect our laws. Until the inception of the Internet, Americans and legal residents had no way of communicating between ourselves. Now we can? Now we should use every means possible to elaborate, that we are well and truly seething, because they are siding with the globalists, money people, open border subversives.

    We are not bigots because we love our country and don’t want to turn into a third world society. We do not want to live in an OVERPOPULATED, congested land. We have been paying for years–illegal immigrant’s support, instead of the procurers–the businesses that employ them. Our charged voices have set-off a chain reaction amongst the Washington political masses, because we actually turned the tables on the anti-sovereignty, pro-illegal immigration organizations. They are building the original border fence as originally planned, not faulty short-cuts? But we have enemies who have ignored their oath of office and plan to weaken any amendments. As with the 1986 immigration AMNESTY law that was never broken, but disrupted and never enforced. Now they want another AMNESTY or immigration reform package.

    It was the politicians who caused the problem of between 13 to 20 million settling here and unable to support themselves. Lawmakers can now stew in their own juices, because we refuse–absolutely refuse, to be sold on another path to citizenship, as it will be yet another higher tax burden on taxpayers. California being just one of many Sanctuary States–that has produced massive budget deficit problems, cause by the huge influx of illegal poor living on state and federal welfare.

    Senators and Representatives aides are unhappy with the constant bombardment from millions of Americans, but they are the bridge that must be crossed everyday? No respite, no retreat? Keep up the pressure, till their ears bleed? Keep up the invaluable rumblings in the beltway at 202-224-3121 THAT THE POPULATION IS MAD AND NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE! Learn who your enemy is and who your friends at NUMBERSUSA, JUDICIALWATCH, CAPSWEB, HERITAGE FOUNDATION & AMERICANPATROL

    ATTENTION! Because of the massive payments to illegal immigrants in California, their is a petition. Google–TAXPAYER REVOLUTION. Very few newspapers will mention this activist petition. When is the American flag going to fly again in the once Golden state?

    Anti-illegal immigration advocates are NOT haters. Americans are just totally disgusted at the fact that 12-20 million illegals have crossed our borders illegally, dropped multiple anchor babies (which they do not pay for) who are then entitled to welfare and benefits they should not receive (which taxpayers pay for) since their parents are not legal citizens. We also resent the fact that these millions are able to break so many laws with no punishment or consequences for their criminial actions. They are allowed to commit identity fraud to hold jobs they should not have, that unemployed Americans need now. They drive illegally with no insurace, putting everyone else at risk. High rates of DUI, sexual misconduct, gang-banging, etc. They work for slave wages which brings down wages for everyone else. We resent that they refuse to learn this countries language and history or assimilate into American culture. Plain and simple, illegals have no respect for this country or our laws and feel they should not have to follow them, they think they are entitled to all perks that legal citizens receive, and they mooch off this country through their anchor babies, education, incarceration, healthcare etc., which is driving states broke. They are leeches for whom the majority of American people have no respect. They should be subject to immigration law, which says they are to be deported. No amnesty for these losers, EVER!!

    Meanwhile, back on planet earth…it’s good to see that the lobbying efforts of the badly-in-need-of-therapy crowd are having little-to-no effect and that Judge Sotomayor’s nomination remains solidly on track.

    This guy gets depressed reading the email alerts of conservative groups because he knows deep down beneath his liberal programming and training that the true conservatives are RIGHT! Sonia Sotomayor sucks and the public knows it. Obama’s numbers are dropping like a stone due to his support for her and for AMNESTY for illegal aliens.

    A great word of advice for this writer that I wish someone had given me when I was a young liberal trained since grade school to see the world through a political lens created by others….

    Much of the depression you feel will end when you discard this pansy ass unrealistic unicorns and leprechauns world view that leads you to abuse patriotic Americans that care deeply for this nation.

    ALIPAC has never said to round them all up and deport them. That is a lie you created and it shows you are willing to lie and abuse others with untrue characterizations to protect your narrow knee jerk liberalism ideology. Your mind is infected, time to get clean!
