Remember that video that SoFlaPatriot tipped me to and I reported on about a month ago? Well I'm pleased to let you know that it has now gone completely viral and has had over 1/2 a million viewings as of this date! People have taken note and that one little testimony by Carol Plato, director of services from Martin Memorial Medical Hospital, has now taken on a life of it's own. I'm sure she didn't expect to be heard but by a handful of people that day, but now she's been heard by hundreds of thousands! If you haven't seen it yet go watch it at my entry above.
Apparently what happened is that Immigration Watchdog finally caught on to the scent and posted it. I'm not sure who noticed it there, but it was mentioned either on talk radio, by a big blogger or some other media personality and watchdog got flooded with hits and the message has spread.
Now it has been reported on by Amanda Carpenter at TownHall.com and in her piece she interviews SoFlaPatriot of the immigration enforcement groups Floridians for Immigration Enforcement and Bridges Across America. Here is what he had to say.
“A lot of people are angry,” SoFlaPatriot said. He asked Townhall not to publish his real name because of threatening comments that have been posted in the comments section of the video, but is happy more people are finding out about the expenses of illegal immigration because he uploaded the video.
“I’m definitely gratified this got out there,” he said. “This is public domain stuff. There’s got to be a lot more of it out there. People just need to find it and post it.”
One patriot, working with others to make an impact. That's what I like to see!
Way to go SoFlaPatriot and Digger for getting this video out there. As a FL resident, I called almost daily to get the six illegal immigration bills to be voted on, but even after this testimony from hospital administrators and the ADA who testified that human smuggling from Mexico to FLorida was an issue, that a young teen girl was beheaded in front of other girls her age because she refused to be a PROSTITUTE, leaving the girls with the beheaded body for hours -- our cowardly elected officials, specifically Speaker Rubio, Rep's Rivera and Zapata, and more, conspired before the legislative session even began to NOT allow ANY OF THESE BILLS TO BE VOTED ON. They're all from Miami, of Cuban descent, and claim to be the children of immigrants. So?!? That's all fine and well, but they're elected to represent the will of the people and 75% of Floridians want to see tough bills passed like MS, GA and SC have recently passed. Thanks for getting this video out there! Get ready for the influx of illegals coming to FL now that MS's E-Verify bill law kicks in on July 1st...

Thank You Digger! It shocks me that this video has received so much attention. Perhaps people consider illegal alien crime stories like bolts of lightning they doubt will affect them. However hospital closures and health care costs and taxes are a daily concern to all Americans But you are right, we made it into a monster because we all pulled together as a team. Just as you spread the word your way; I have received emails , or seen on other blogs, people actively sending this out to all sorts of various target audiences. One day if I don't get suspended this video will hit 1000000 views. I noticed I lost my education status on my account. Wonder why? I wont change my status and lets hope this makes it to the top ten in education one day. Currently #67 all-time viewed in education. Folks need to find more examples of testimony like this and post it.
