Ok, since the illegal alien protest this morning I've walked in the Sherwood parade with the cub scouts, gone to church, and had some whiskey. Time to let loose about what I saw today.
First, I was at the middle school, which was the original location at 8:15am. I was the first one there and after moving to the new location with everyone else I was the last one to leave the protest after 1:15pm. (the criminal supporters cheered when I left)
My commitment to this cause is absolute and I will continue to work on it until every last illegal alien is deported.
That said, today was discouraging for me. Much like drug cartels are constantly finding new ways to move their contraband, the Mexican consulate and state of Oregon found a way to discourage American citizens from preventing illegal aliens from receiving benefits.
At the last protest in Salem I attempted to get into the school where the event was being held. When they told me that I needed an appointment to get in I decided to stand at the gate and make sure that everyone who went in did have an appointment. A lot of people were turned away because of that.
This time the criminal supporters held the event on private property so there was nothing I could do.
It was also discouraging to see so many people out in support of criminal aliens. Not discouraging because I think that they are the majority of public opinion, I know that they aren't, but discouraging like when you realize how many sex offenders there are in this country. The sheer number of people who don't care about the law is mind boggling. Actual quote: "Laws cause crime."
Yes, that was the typical level of intelligence I experienced from the illegal alien supporters. Unlike last time there was some organization and structure to their side. As I said in a previous post it was very clear that instructions not to talk as well as talking points for the media were issued. PCUN even had people in orange vests walking their crowd to make sure that all instructions were followed. I can't count the number of times that people were told not to talk to me.
The orange vests were constantly trying to stand in front of me and turn their backs. This childish display was frequently thwarted by me moving 2 steps to my left or right.
I didn't realize that so many PCUN member read my blog but apparently a lot of them do. They were able to cite posts that I have done about Mr. Gonzales who is a board member of MEChA and a school counselor and I was identified immediatly when I first approached this group by Eric of PFAW as Daniel the conservative blogger. Eric, my invitation for a debate still stands.
While it is very frustrating to watch so many law enforcement officers standing around while there are criminals in close proximinty I realize that Oregon law prevents them from doing anything. That said, I had several good talks with the Woodburn Police.
I will absolutely say that a reduction in illegal immigration will result in an overall reduction in crime.
I anticipate that future events like this will be similair to this one and the schedules will be closely guarded. In a sense it is a victory, we have succeeded in pushing this criminal activity back underground. They can no longer publicize an event and meet anywhere. Good American citizens will show up. Much like hookers are forced into the shadows the aiders and abbetters of illegal aliens have been forced to move to private property and employ socialists and anarchists to parade their support outside their building.
I guess I would finish with a big thank you to everyone who turned out this event. Rick, Jim, Nick, James, Cheryll, Christi, Michael and so many others. You are all great Americans.
And to you who support the illegal aliens: You are cowards, you refused to even tell me why you where there, you refused to take a stand for something that you purport to believe in. I am absolutly confident in my position and will debate with you any time. Your best argument was to flip me off and call me a bigot. Your lack of maturity makes me feel sorry for you and your lack of understanding of this country makes me think that our public schools are failing in their job or you had bad parents. We are a country of laws, you don't get to pick which ones to follow.
As far as I can tell the education of the criminal supporters consists entirely of liberal bumper stickers, ask them for details and they turn their back to you.
Oh yeah, you guys are going to lose, you know it. You see the outrage that is forming, you see that this issue is really gaining traction, it's only a matter of time. I'm smiling right now picturing the day that illegal aliens are treated like the criminals that they are, it's not long off...
