Update on Violence at Yesterday's IFIRE/Minuteman Protest

Bookmark and Share

NWITimes has coverage of the assault of two Chicago Minuteman Project members here. My coverage from yesterday is here.

The NWITimes captions their lead photograph thusly:

Members of the Indiana Federation for Immigration Reform and Enforcement and the Chicago Minuteman Project tangle with counterprotesters Saturday morning outside Bank Calumet in Munster. Federation and Minuteman members were protesting the bank offering home loans to undocumented immigrants. A fight broke out between several members of each group, prompting police to separate the two groups of marchers.
Since they did a really good job of making IFIRE and CMP the subject attached to the verb tangle, trying to mislead readers into thinking that we started the "fisticuffs," here's a little help, for anyone who gives a shit about what actually happened:

Susana Findley, a Gary native whose parents were born in Mexico, said illegal immigrant workers arrived here for the same reason federation members' ancestors arrived: To find work and a better life."

"But those racist immigrants forget about that," said Findley, nodding toward the federation's camp.

Well, she was pointing at me, and I'm neither a racist nor an immigrant. But facts did not seem to be the focus (or even within the mental grasp, for that matter) of the counter-protesters. A phrase that comes up often from people who are against HR4437 -- because facts to support their anti-American, pro-ILLEGAL-immigrant position are non-existent -- is "mean-spirited."

I don't find wanting what is best for my country, including the enforcement of its laws and a beneficial immigration policy, mean-spirited. It's my right. But, if I ever wanted a lesson in mean-spiritedness, I'd have to look nor further than yesterday's counter-protesting crowd.

"I wished he fell to the ground harder," Findley said.
I guess when you're THAT wrong, enjoying the attack of a 63-year-old man, and wishing he'd suffered more injury and pain, may be the only satisfaction you get in your sad, pathetic life.

Mean-spirited, indeed.

Are the (presumably American) Blacks in the foto helping what looks like a Latino rough up some guy (presumably a 'Minuteman')? If so, this just goes to show how dumb some Blacks are, as they have been and will continue to be hurt the most by immigration, since it is massively importing what amounts to economic competition for them. I guess they are just too giddy about having some 'hate Whitey' allies to think about that aspect of it.

Whatever happened to the American dream? Now these vigilanty groups are causing havok everywhere they go. The fact that the American Government can't seem to do their job, doesn't give the Minutemen (lead by the same hatred that the Nazis were back in 1932) a free ticket to harrass even one human being. If you are afraid of terrorism just wait until the Great Judgement Day when you will be held accountable for the evil in your Minuteman hearts.
