Scary Quotes: Frank Jorge of Latino Americans for Immigration Reform and the Antelope Vallye Minutemen. (from his Voice of The People USA Harrisburg Rally speech.)

Politicians will respect you. Politicians will acknowledge your power when they see a round flying through their windshield and getting into their flesh. That will get their attention.(source)

Scary Quotes: John Tanton Founder of FAIR (Federation for American Immigration Reform)

Perhaps this is the first instance in which those with their pants up are going to get caught by those with their pants down!…As whites see their power and control over their lives declining, will they go quietly into the night? Or will there be an explosion? (source)(another source)

Scary Quotes: David Duke (former Grand Wizard of the KKK)

“I think the basic culture of this country is European and Christian and I think that if we lose that, we lost America…I don’t think we should suppress other races, but I think if we lose that White – what’s the word for it – that White dominance in America, with it we lose America.”

Scary Quotes: Patrick Buchanan Speaking About The Anti-Immigration Movement

“The question we Americans need to address, before it is answered for us, is: Does this First World nation wish to become a Third World country? Because that is our destiny if we do not build a sea wall against the waves of immigration rolling over our shores…Who speaks for the Euro-Americans, who founded the USA?…Is it not time to take back America?”

Scary Quotes: Ruth Miller of Illegal Protest showing her compassion for mankind

Mexicans in general are users and takers and display an arrogance like no other culture. That is why Americans are starting to turn against them. For years we have probably had illegal immigrants from other cultures but this wave of arrogant Mexicans is waking us up to the entire problem and that will be their ultimate undoing which will send them back home. YAY!

We don’t need no stinking Mexicans in our towns and cities. If they want to come here legally, they are welcome to but most that are coming here illegally are not qualified to come here because they are not educated and they are without skills. That is WHY they are coming here illegally because they know we don’t really want them to come in the front door.

  1. You do not get the point of the anti-ILLEGAL immigration movement. They are not against LEGAL immigration from whatever nation.
    Why are you distorting the message of these groups?
    It is unfair for you to characterize American citizen’s right to speak out regarding issues that directly impact their country.

  2. It’s strange to me that you say I’m distorting the issue on this page. How am I distorting the issue? The quotes are here to alert people to the motives of some of those against illegal immigration. I do not distort anything. I believe any reasonable person would conclude what I have concluded when it comes to these groups. They sensationalize the worst of people to further their cause when they only need to state the facts to do so. My cause, as you may say the same of me, is to stop them from speaking ill of Hispanics and other minorities. Since I’m fighting racial hatred I think I have the right to speak out against these people.

    Although I don’t agree with violence, and would never resort to it, you could argue that John Brown used it for a respectable cause – to free the slaves. I’m fighting racial stereotyping and hatred with my blog and that, I believe, is a good cause. It does not make me like the very thing I’m against.

    I clearly understand the anti-illegal movement. I’ve researched the groups and I’ve transcribed many of their speeches.

    As I always say. Give me examples so I know what you’re talking about.

  3. Dear Symsess,

    I am afraid you missed the point of the Vento sign and your comparison does not hold water. If I went to Greece I would not try to speak to waiters in English, unless I was spoken to first in English.

    I do agree that it would have been more effective to have written in Spanish “Speak English, please, I do not speak Spanish”.

    Today I tried to find the sizes on a product I was buying at a Wal-Mart. The product has so many different languages on it I never could make out the English. It is certainly within the right of companies to accomodate their Spanish-speaking customers, but they are under no moral obligation to do so.

  4. I don’t think the sign misses the point. The point is that if you were in Greece and didn’t speak Greek you wouldn’t know what the sign says. If the Joey Vento of Greece kept pointing at the sign as you attempted to order food you’d be confused.

    Anyway, Joey knows this he just likes the publicity.

    BTW – You shouldn’t be shopping at Wal-Mart. They are the worst company around.

  5. Bernard, the majority if not all of the anti-immigration groups are opposed to both documented and undocumented immigration. Name one and I’ll give you the info regarding their opinion on legal immigrants which is always negative.

  6. These quotes are really scary.

    To David, a lot of products in the US have English, French and Spanish because of NAFTA, it is a requirement.

    I have travel extensively and wherever I go I see “Americans” speaking in English and expecting everybody to do so, in no-English speaking countries, I have heard them disparage the locals for not speaking English.

    One of the best things about this country is that people have the right to express their opinion and others have the right to not agree.

  7. Diana,

    Thanks for commenting on this issue.

    It’s no secret that English is used worldwide and that many countries cater to our linguistic needs when we travel. So many Americans can speak only one language and they look down on others that have a hard time with English.

  8. I’ve been ‘on the fence’ about joining the SOS group but after perusing your comments and website I’m joining. I’m so sick of being an American citizen and called ‘racist or ‘bigot’ for something as simple as defending the rights of my citizenship.

    It really sucks because I used to be a fairly liberal person with the same views – I just cannot let this continue without getting involved. I’m sure ALL of you will write me off as a right-wing crazy racist -but- you can’t be farther from the truth, I just want every person who is trying to enter our country to do it LEGALLY……

    Is that so hard to understand folks???????

  9. I completely agree with ‘Ebuzz’
    Are we truly too afraid to say the truth, to say what is on our minds because we are afraid of prosocution- to censor what we say because it might seem politically incorrect? Think rationally.

  10. I think that Americans are bunch of arrogant people who think they own the world. They have little tolerance for frustration, want things done immediately, cheap and perfect. Also they are not willing to wait because their time is so precious and they travel to countries whose culture is older than popular American culture and whose language is not English expecting people to speak English without a foreign accent. You guys use any excuse to invade countries and throw out leaders or governments that do not fit your interests and then you wonder why people in other countries hate you so much or why they attacked the Twin Towers. You have killed inocent people in foreign countries, you have overthrown governments, you guys have invaded other countries and still expect to be respected

    1. Marcos, I totally agree with your comments. In addition, every other Industrialized Nation speak more than one Language.

      They promote speaking more than one language because they do not have a myopic view of the World as uneducated and naive American have.

      I mean when Americans think that Uruguay is in Mexico that should give you an idea on the level of mental retardation and lack of education of some of these people.

      Try to establish a basic conversation with a white American about Geography or World History, and all they can talk about is guns, cars, movies, video games, child
      molestation, serial killers, Hamburgers, Hot Dogs and Macarony and cheese!!!

      1. Doris Smith makes a convincing case that she is as ignorant as she accuses us Americans of being.

        Erroneous capitalization, wrong verb tenses, bigotry (white Americans aren’t stupider than yellow or brown ones), but mainly the inability to construct a logical, clear sentence are Doris’ hallmarks.

        But I concede Doris’ point—we Americans are uneducated. That’s because the government wants it that way. The public schools teach kids to sit down, shut up, stand in line, and develop the manual dexterity required to put a condom on a cucumber.

        The schools do NOT teach how to reason or how to solve problems!

      2. Is there no free will? Does the government really have the ability to remove one’s ability to learn? What of parents then?

        One thing people like yourself need to realize is there is a vast difference between message and delivery. One’s inability or lack of concern for proper grammar does not make their point mute. Sadly so many go on attacking spelling and grammar as if every blog and newspaper article were nothing more than an exercise in trying to impress E.B. White. Does it add color to your feathers to denigrate others like a chiding school master?

        If you believe all teachers to be a mindless horde of automatons rushing like lemmings into the arms of an idiot mass do something about it. Personally, I don’t believe this to be the case.

  11. Doris,

    I’m one of those white American males you were referring to in your post. Except, I hold a Ph. D., I speak four languages. I also hold a secondary degree in computer science.

    I served 31 years in the United States Military and yes I fought in many battles around the world. Let me clue you in on a few matters. The United States Military does not invade Countries. The U.S. Military only gets involved if and when a Country ask for our Military assistance. So if you and the other folks believe the U.S. invades countries, that’s a lie.

    As for having an intelligent conversation concerning Geography, math, science or history, then bring it on. I do not think you could rise to my level in any of these area’s. To make my point, after reading your post and observing your many spelling errors, then if I were you, I would be careful who I call mentally retarded or lack of education. I have traveled to more countries than I care to remember and the ratio of uneducated people are just about equal.

    Also, if your an American citizen and you do not like the umbrella of safety and security provided you by our Military and law enforcement, then why don’t you pack your crap and visit hugo or fidel. I’m sure they will welcome you with open arms but, look closely at the arms extended, one of the hands may be holding a pistol. It’s very odd, other countries start getting their butts kicked by the communist or socialist and what do they do? America can you please send your men to die for us, we’re to scared to fight our own battle’s.

    1. I have no reason to believe you don’t hold a Phd, but you clearly have avoidance issues when it comes to our interaction with the world. Not only do we invade countries, but we also supply arms to countries to do our own dirty work. Is the US all bad? Of course not – we’re first to help when disasters hit flexing our large altruistic muscle.

      Why is it that any question of loyalty to every action of our government invokes a love it or leave it comment? If that were true in the beginning this country would still be under British rule. C’mon – questioning our government is as American as apple pie!

      1. Actually, I do have reason to believe that “Bill” doesn’t hold a Ph.D. Now I’m not implying that poor language skills negate the validity of a comment, or make it “mute” (dear god), but if someone claims to hold a Ph.D. one would expect to find a certain level of competency regarding language usage, particularly since written language is the fundamental tool of an advanced college degree. Looking at Bill’s comment I found:

        “Except, I hold a Ph. D., I speak four languages.”
        “And” in place of the second comma. Also, I am assuming that one of the languages you speak is English, however in your defense you don’t state that you can write English.

        “I served 31 years in the United States Military and yes I fought in many battles around the world”.
        Comma after “military”.

        “The United States Military does not invade Countries.”
        No capitalization needed for “countries”

        “The U.S. Military only gets involved if and when a Country ask for our Military assistance.”
        No capitalization needed for “countries”. “Asks”, not ask. No capitalization needed for “military assistance” As a side note, I don’t believe this statement to be entirely accurate.

        “So if you and the other folks believe the U.S. invades countries, that’s a lie”
        This is a poorly constructed sentence. It states that someone’s belief is a lie, which is not possible. A lie is a false statement, not a false belief.

        “As for having an intelligent conversation concerning Geography, math, science or history, then bring it on.”
        No capitalization needed for geography. “Then” is not necessary. It should read: “…or history, bring it on.”

        “I do not think you could rise to my level in any of these area’s.“
        Improper apostrophe use. An apostrophe before the “s” in this case indicates possession.

        “To make my point, after reading your post and observing your many spelling errors, then if I were you, I would be careful who I call mentally retarded or lack of education.”
        The second half of this sentence doesn’t exactly address the first half. With the statement “…after reading your post…” we would expect to hear the conclusions he drew from his review, i.e. “I THINK I would…” Instead, we are advised to be careful when calling someone “lack of education”.

        “I have traveled to more countries than I care to remember and the ratio of uneducated people are just about equal.”
        “Is” just about equal, not “are”. The ratio “is”, the people “are”.
        Just about equal to what?

        “Also, if your an American citizen and you do not like the umbrella of safety and security provided you by our Military and law enforcement, then why don’t you pack your crap and visit hugo or fidel.”
        The “your” after “also, if” is a contraction of “you” and “are”, i.e. “if you are an American…” Therefore, it is spelled “you’re”, not “your”. “Your” indicates posession. No capitalization needed for “military”, however Hugo and Fidel should be capitalized.

        “I’m sure they will welcome you with open arms but, look closely at the arms extended, one of the hands may be holding a pistol.”
        Comma after “arms”, not after “but”. Semicolon after “extended”.

        “It’s very odd, other countries start getting their butts kicked by the communist or socialist and what do they do?”
        Unless there is only one communist and one socialist in the entire world, both words should be pluralized. Poor lonely little nouns, shivering out there by themselves. Throw a little “S” around their shoulders to keep ‘em warm why doncha?

        “America can you please send your men to die for us, we’re to scared to fight our own battle’s.”
        Should be quotes around this sentence. No apostrophe needed to indicate pluralization in “battles”.
        After “we’re” it should be “too”, not “to”.

        Now I want to encourage others to rip into my comment for errors. I would like to state however that I make no claim of education. In fact, I am a high school dropout and that is my point. Even with my lack of education I was able to identify numerous gramatical errors in his comments. My suspicion is that Bill might be padding his resume a bit.

        Also regarding Chris Peterson, Clyde stated that schools passively fail to teach students how to reason and solve problems, not that they actively remove a student’s ability to learn.

        To restate my point, this is not an attempt to imply that someone’s point is MUTE by attacking their grammatical skills. I recognise that people get a little lazy on the net, myself included. In Chris’s case I am attacking his logic and failure to grasp the point of Clyde’s comments.

        In the case of Bill, his errors were so numerous and grievous that they belie his claim of higher education.
