I thought that I would put out the official OFIR report on this weekends protest as well as including two more of my own "consular awards" for some previously overlooked categories: "Best mullet" and "I didn't take my valium."
OFIR members and supporters:
We had about 100 people this morning at the Portland Carousel of Information protest in front of the Mexican Consular office. It was a great celebration of being an American.
While it was nice to see many new faces it was equally satisfying to see many of the same staunch supporters that seem to be at all of our rallies. We waved flags, protest signs and passed out information to passerbys.
It was apparent that we caught the Mexican Consul General by surprise. I'm sure that he thought we would be protesting in Woodburn at an empty building. Thanks to some inside information we were able to change locations at the last moment. Special thanks to Rick Hickey for coordinating the event.
Next week it is critical for everyone to go back to phoning again. Undoubtedly, the tens of thousands of phone calls the U.S. Senate received caused them to back down from passing the horrendous Kennedy/McCain amnesty bill. Please start phoning again Monday. Demand that the "borders be secured before there is any discussion of guest worker, green cards or amnesties."
The number one duty of the federal government is to protect our borders and sovereignty. Contrary to President Bush, Senators Kennedy and McCain, it is not to provide big business with cheap labor. If you need phone numbers contact the OFIR office.
May 1st, (May Day), has been set by illegal alien advocates as a boycott America day. They want to show that America cannot function without illegal alien workers. We have proclaimed May 1st as "Shop til you drop" day. We encourage everyone to do their shopping on Monday, May 1st, but not to frequent businesses that hire illegals.
OFIR is also encouraging a boycott of Mexico and it's products. I will certainly participate in that.
And now for the final two Consul Awards:
Award for "Best Mullet"
Oh yeah, sporting the mullet likes it's 1980 something. For whatever reason it seems that illegal aliens like mullets. I can't explain the phenomenon.
Award for "I didn't take my valium today"
I could go on and on about this guy. He called us nazis, called us KKK, called us bigots... all at the top of his lungs! He chanted "yes we can" in Spanish but did it incorrectly. He flipped people off then talked about the Bible and respect. Then he did some more screaming. The illegal aliens weren't quite sure what to do with him, I think that they were embarrassed to have him on their side.
