American Patriot Terry Anderson Has Died

Bookmark and Share

It seems like just yesterday that I was standing in the hot Arizona sun with sweat pouring off of me. I was not alone however that day, there was an American patriot sitting next to me on the stairs. I held an umbrella over his head as he wiped the sweat from his brow and took a drink from a water bottle. He looked up at me.

"Is it soon?" he asked.

"Just a few minutes more," I said.

Terry Anderson didn't look to me as I had pictured him. He was slightly gaunt and pale. His spirit however was still inside of him as he talked to me.

For those who don't know Terry, he had been doing a radio for 10 years called Terry Anderson Show where he spoke out for freedom in America and enforcement of our immigration laws. He got involved in the issue after watching the black community in Los Angeles being affected by the invasion of illegal aliens. He railed against the inaction by our government telling the American people that "If you ain't mad, you ain't payin' attention!"

"We will prevail because we are right!"
- Terry Anderson
On this day he had traveled into the middle of the desert to stand and share his message with the people of Arizona and the people of America. It was a day that would hit 107 degrees and the message he was bringing was no amnesty for illegal aliens. It was June 5, 2010 and it would be the last day that I would see this great man.

Little did I know at the time, Terry was suffering from pancreatic and liver cancer and it was the cause of his gaunt, pale condition. A little over a month later, just yesterday in fact, this patriot died.

"You ready to go?" I asked him.

"As ready as I'll be," he replied.

It troubles me that someone with pancreatic and liver cancer - a month from dying - can take the time to stand with his fellow Americans, but there are Americans in this country who claim to be patriots who will make every excuse in the book not to attend events or be active in something they say they care about. Actually it angers me more than it troubles me and looking at a man like Terry just puts the point home. Terry is an example to us all. I believe that he would say to all Americans to "get off your butts and get out there!"

America is much the poorer with the loss of this great man named Terry Anderson.

Terry stood up tall from sitting next to me, walked up the stairs and took the podium. Below is what he had to say that hot day in June in Phoenix, Arizona.

You will be missed Mr. Anderson.

I can't believe I'm crying about a man I never met.
I looked forward to spending Sunday's at 9 with Terry.
He was a great man and I'm going to miss him a lot.

This brave and wonderful man will be missed and never forgotten!
Americans loved Terry! Rest in peace you wonderful hero!

I just can't believe Terry is gone, not Terry.

He can rest in peace knowing that he has passed along his passion against illegal immigration to many of us and we will continue the fight with him looking down on us and like him we will NEVER accept any amnesty.

God bless you Terry, we will miss you immensely and Sunday night will never be the same.

I am greatly saddened by this selfless Patriot who I looked forward to hearing each week. Who can possibly fill the great void left by his passing? The fight against illegal immigration will need someone with the type of brave, unrelenting , and enthusiastic manner that this man used to combat that assault, and I fear few, if any, have his talent to win this war. Rest in peace, Terry - we love you and all that you did for us. You were a man amongst men.

I am saddended to hear of Terry's passing. I got to meet him personally in Vegas in 2005 or 06. When he was leaving the auditorium I grabbed him (literally) to take a picture with me. He was so funny. You would have thought he knew me my whole life and thought I was just the most darling thing he'd ever seen. He was warm, kind and genuine. I am so thankful now for that silly picture to always remind me of him! God Bless you Terry and may you rest in God's hands.

I am saddened to hear about my friend, Terry Anderson. I am a black U.S. citizen living in Washington, D.C. and I've seen how illegal aliens mostly from El Salvador/Central America have destroyed my once middle class neighborhood. As a black man, I use to think, I'm I the only one seeing this illegal invasion in my neighborhood. After meeting Terry, I knew I wasn't the only black American sharing these feelings. RIP Terry, your work is done on this earth. Hopefully, your soul is gone on to glory and you are at peace. I will see you soon on the other side my brother and we can share our many laughs together. Dios te bendiga! (God Bless Your Always)

I met Terry eight years ago in odd and wonderful circumstances, and developed the greatest friendship with him. I am Mexican and I applauded all the efforts he did to keep his country safe. I live in Mexico and I understand what you are doing and I would do the same but I am not a patriot of the caliber of Terry's.
I hadn't seen this footage and I am sad to see him hurting because I hear it in his voice; it hurt him to go but it would had hurt him in his heart to miss it because he was a true part of all what is happening now in Arizona. Keep on the good work.
Terry, you are always in my heart, dearest friend-
