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.”
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.
