The Dustin Inman Society organized a protest against John McCain when he came to Atlanta last week and let their voices be heard on his proposals and support of illegal immigration. McCain was in town raising funds at the Buckhead Westin Hotel. Groups that participated along with ordinary citizens included the Georgia Chapter of the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps.
This in from D.A. King
Thank you to those who drove to Buckhead last evening to help show our opposition to Senator McCain’s promise to try again for amnesty. I know that some folks drove long distances to get there and I am very grateful for the commitment.
There were several people who had nothing to do with DIS who were less than coherent nearby where we had set up our signs and banners. They were not invited and will not be welcomed back. YIKES!
Because of the circus like atmosphere and mixing of groups, causes and messages – and a couple of people who can only politely be described as “out-there” - I made the decision to shut down our rally shortly after the official start time. We were gone by 6:30.
Emery Woodall over at Just Build The Fence has more pictures of the rally and this to say about illegal immigration
So what is that agenda? The answer is simple, follow the money. Who benefits from illegal immigration? Businesses do. Employers who save money on labor costs. Wall Street benefits and the world bankers benefit. The Council of Foreign relations benefits and McCain is a long time CFR member. So big business benefits and Americans pay the price. Meanwhile, politicians like McCain tell us that this is the American dream. Seems like a nightmare to me. I don't think this is what the founding fathers envisioned.
I don't think this is what the founding fathers envisioned either. My hat is off to D.A. King of the Dustin Inman Society for putting this rally together and his tireless work in Georgia at getting laws passed against illegal immigration at the local level. Thanks to those who showed up.
DA King rocks! What a great organization that is run so professionally. Wish I could've been there! It's a GA based organization but anyone can join, and I have. Check them out.

I sympathize. A couple of years ago there was a local protest against our illegal invasion of Iraq. I drove there only to find these were real live, self described Communists who were also protesting racism(?).
I, too, beat a hasty retreat, not wanting to affiliate with the real racists, those who support race discrimination under law (affirmative action).
