White Supremacy And Illegal Immigration

Congresswoman: White Supremacist Groups Behind Arizona Immigration Law

Rep. Linda Sanchez, D-Calif., told a Democratic Club on Tuesday that white supremacist groups are influencing lawmakers to adopt laws that will lead to discrimination.

"There's a concerted effort behind promoting these kinds of laws on a state-by-state basis by people who have ties to white supremacy groups," said the lawmaker, who is of Mexican descent. "It's been documented. It's not mainstream politics."

Naturally people took exception with this so Ms Sanchez sought to explain her remarks:

"I never said that everyone who supports the Arizona law is a racist or white supremacist," she said in a written statement. "Anyone who says different is just trying to inflame the issue and get away from the real discussion of how to reform the immigration system in this country."

"The only way we are going to fix this problem is to have federal legislation," she added. "Unfortunately, the people who get on the airwaves to stir up anger by misconstruing my comments are not interested in constructive solutions. They're interested in dividing this country into 'us' and 'them' and totally undermining attempts to bring about real solutions."

First, there is federal legislation. It says the same thing as the Arizona legislation. It is being ignored.

Second, people just misunderstood and we are the ones being divisive by talking about her pointing out that the people pushing laws like Arizona's are a bunch of white racist.

I think the simple explanation here is that she is a nut. Keep in mind, I am a health care professional so that is my professional opinion.

I do get amazed though that these idiots continue to attack a law that is supported by 60% of voters.

In her district she may have enough "undocumented workers" and an active enough ACORN chapter that she will get re-elected but I would think on a national scale calling 60% of voters racist is a little counter-productive.

As usual, it is the 'tolerant' Dem who generalizes and makes racist statements.

How do they continue to get away with it?

"The only way we are going to fix this problem is to have federal legislation" Seriously... read the Constitution! I could scream. UGH.

And may we ask why it is always the libs who bring up race in every issue? Selling point. Label it racist and you shut up the crowd.

Another group playing the race card.
Typical of the leftist who have no real argument or facts to put forth on the Arizona law. It is evident that they haven't read it nor the Federal law otherwise they would be marching on DC. It's eaiser to attack a state than the feds. Much like Alinsky's 12th rule.

Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. In conflict tactics there are certain rules that [should be regarded] as universalities. One is that the opposition must be singled out as the target and 'frozen.'..."...any target can always say, 'Why do you center on me when there are others to blame as well?' When your 'freeze the target,' you disregard these [rational but distracting] arguments.... Then, as you zero in and freeze your target and carry out your attack, all the 'others' come out of the woodwork very soon.

Sure fits the mold of the leftist, LaRaza, Sharpton, Jackson and the rest of the race baiters in the world. Obama and his minions are definitely in that list as well. Note how he attacked BP. He attacks Bush, and Bush ain't running or responsible for anything today but... it's simple follow rule 12. Obama is pure Alinskyite.

La Raza, the Black Panthers, and Nation of Islam all back Obama. They are all racist organizations, what's the big deal? The point here is simple, while white supremacists may back the law for the wrong reasons---the vast majority of people in AZ and the nation back it for the right reasons.

Brooke, the media allows them to. Worse, they know that is why they continue to do it. Notice though that these people are having to explain themselves more and more lately. I think the free passes may be ending

Leslie, libs are the only real racists left

Ticker, the problem Obama and company will have though is that a lot of states are looking at passing the same laws. They may not do until after the first of the year but a lot of them may also have new GOP Governors by then

LA, correct. Also, the simple fact is that she is probably right in one respect, white supremacists likely do support these laws. The problem the Dems will have is that so do a lot of ordinary, run-of-the-mill Americans and they are not likely going to take kindly to being called racists.

Illegal aliens are destroying this Country, and one would have to be almost blind not to see this. How much longer do we have to support these illegal aliens? How much longer do we have to school their illegal alien children? How much longer are we going to let them have our jobs? How much longer are we going to put up with all the crime, stolen identities, forged documents, fake green cards? How much longer are we going to allow these illegal aliens to send money out of this Country and bring our Country down? Oh, amnesty will correct all this. WRONG! Nothing will change except we wouldn't be able to call them illegal aliens any more. Let's get rid of these illegal aliens! Let's get them back to their own Country where they belong!

It's time for ZERO TOLERENCE with these illegal aliens. It's time for them get out of this Country and back in their own Country where they belong. When we get rid of the illegal aliens, we will get rid of all the problems that go with them. THAT IS A FACT!

No doubt! She's a Democrat -- the BHO kind.

"It's been documented. It's not mainstream politics."

Where? in her backside? i hope someone demanded proof from this cretin masquerading as a representative of the people.

It amazing how many times stupid liberals keep making stuff up, get called out for doing it and then have to back-peddle. But within no time another one of the fools goes and says something stupid and the cycle starts all over again. It must hurt them to think.

And one last thing, there's a concerted effort behind hating Arizona's and similar immigration laws on a state-by-state basis by people who have ties to mexican supremacy groups, it's been documented, it's not mainstream politics.

Another liberal using the race card. Not a surprise. Getting our press to behave like true journalists would go a long way to stopping these lies. Yeah, I know, dream on.

I know that I am getting damned sick of it. People who know me personally, know that there isn't a racist bone in my body. These race baiters are merely trying to intimidate people into questioning and backing down on their beliefs.

Chuck said...

Anon, agreed. Illegals are sucking the life out of our economy. I have thought for quite awhile that we are grossly underestimating the cost of illegal immigration

AOW, synonyms right?

Cube, back in our Universe meanwhile...

LA, agreed. We joke talk about it. We joke about it. But I too am getting tired of being called a racist
