Welcome to Sherwood

David Wu hosted a town hall at the Sherwood Police station tonight. He did not have a supportive audience. But I have good news: he's not for amnesty... he's just for allowing people who came here illegaly to become citizens.

I was an early call-on to ask a question and when I began on the amnesty issue one of Wu's approximately four supporters starting screaming at me about how "I won't work in the fields." And I mean screaming.

It was the only time the Mayor had to step in to tell people they would be asked to leave if they were disruptive.

It was downhill from there: "Why didn't you read the cap and trade bill?" "We don't want government taking over health care." We are sick of your spending and sick of your taxes."

Hi Daniel,

I don't remember if I know you from somewhere, but my name is Kris and I have your blog-site marked as a favorite for some reason. Revisiting, it looks like we are of very like minds indeed. I just randomly stopped in tonight and was pleasantly surprised to see you post that you attended the Sherwood town hall meeting for (Non)Representative Wu. I just attended the Beaverton town hall last night (June 30th) myself, and it was also a non-supportive crowd for Mr. Wu. I got to chime in and also ask about the drunken-sailor mentality behind their spending. The questions (and anger of the people) seemed quite similar. If I didn't have to take care of family matters, I would have joined the Sherwood meeting also. We have more upcoming in August that we have a chance to attend. I plan on rounding up several more friends to attend the Portland and/or McMinnville town halls. After years of complaining with 'blood shooting out of my eyes' (mostly - like you - with the illegal alien crisis), I am glad to see so many more people waking up to the complete take-over that is happening within our government. Because the crisis is exceeding at an exponential rate these days, we "The People" need to also ramp up our efforts in educating the uneducated at an exponential rate. Keep up the good work, and maybe we'll meet along the way. God Bless!

911 call of deadly Minutemen home invasion released

'Oh my God, I can't believe they killed my family': Victim of Minuteman gang, on 911 call, pleads for help amid gunfire -- David Neiwert, Crooks and Liars

“... Oh my God, I can’t believe they killed my family.” said the mother and wife of a murdered 9 year old and husband whose lives were snuffed out by a Minutemen gang who stormed the family’s house in the night.

According to the 911 recording, the victim explains that "the killers walked up cold-bloodedly to her daughter, 9-year-old Brisenia Flores, as she cowered and cried, and shot her two or three times anyway.”

Jason Bush, Shawna Forde, and Albert Gaxiola of the Minutemen American Defense group have been charged with two counts each of first-degree murder and other charges. Shawna Forde, the Director of Washington State based Minutemen group, wanted to use the home invasion to steal money and possibly drugs to finance the group she led.

In addition to the murder charges of the Flores family, Jason Eugene Bush is facing charges in the stabbing death of Hector Lopez Partida, 29, a homeless Latino man from Washington State.

The full audio of the 911 call can be heard by visiting Crooks and Liars

**PARENTAL ADVISORY** The audio of the 911 call is very disturbing. Children should be asked to leave the room.

Anti-immigrant Activist Charged with ’97 Slaying of Homeless Latino Man

The Seattle Times is reporting that Jason Eugene Bush, who is facing charges in the brutal slaying Raul Junior Flores and his 9 year old daughter, has been charged in the stabbing death of Hector Lopez Partida, 29, a homeless man.

Bush was charged in the Flores murders along with Shawna Forde, the Director of the Washington State based Minutemen American Defense group, and Albert Gaxiola, a member of the same group.

According to the news report, an informant said that “Bush had bragged about killing "a Mexican" behind a store and that Bush had ties to white supremacist groups”.

Wenatchee police said in documents that they "learned Bush has had long-standing ties to Aryan Nations groups that commonly believe in white superiority over other races and have been known to be violent towards nonwhite races.”.

Minutemen Charged in Brutal Slaying of Nine Year Old Child and her Father

On Saturday, it was reported that members of a Washington State anti-immigrant vigilante organization were charged in the brutal slayings of a nine-year old child and her father.

Jason Bush, Shawna Forde, and Albert Gaxiola of the Minutemen American Defense group have been charged with two counts each of first-degree murder and other charges. The three are said to have murdered Raul Junior Flores, his 9 year old daughter, Brisenia, and injured her mother during a home invasion attack on May 30th in the Arizona border town of Arivaca.

According to detectives, Forde, the Director of Washington State Minutemen group, wanted to use the home invasion to steal money and possibly drugs to finance the group she led. The trio reportedly shot the family because they "did not want to leave witnesses". The second daughter, whom the three attempted to find during the deadly invasion, was not in the home at the time.

The Center for New Community reported on Sunday that Jason Bush, Shawna Forde , and Albert Gaxiola “have a history of using anti-immigrant sentiments as an excuse to act violently against Latinos”. And that Forde has “a history of criminal activity and has continuously lied about being attacked by Latino gang members.”

At their newsblog, Imagine2050, they said in regard to the slaying of Raul Junior Flores, and his 9 year old daughter, Brisenia:

"This is part of a larger increase in violence by individuals associated with racist groups; a direct result of the acceptance of racist, anti-immigrant rhetoric used in mainstream media."

"The group that they belong to, Minutemen American Defense, and other groups like it, such as the Minutemen Civil Defense Corps, Minutemen Project, and ALIPAC are dangerous vigilante groups who believe they have the right to take the law into their own hands."
As for media coverage of the hate crimes and anti-immigrant activity, they report that

“There continues to be a rise in hate crimes and anti-immigrant activity…Yet only a few mainstream media outlets are willing to report extensively on the rise of racially-motivated violence. Networks such as FOX and CNN continue to air programs that encourage bigoted viewpoints and refuse to report on hate crimes.”
Enrique Morones, founder of Border Angels and a leader in the immigrant rights movement, told East County Magazine in San Diego that “These Minutemen are violent vigilante groups as I’ve always said. Their motivation is hate.” He told the magazine that hate speech and vigilantism can lead to violence and in this case, the tragic death of an innocent child.

I'm assuming you are the same idiot. It is very nice of you to cherry pick information. You prove my point. We have enough of our own criminals without importing more. Have you seen the crime rates of the criminal aliens? I doubt it because you can only cut and paste.

There already is a huge rate of criminal aliens committing crimes against Americans. Of course there will be higher crimes against legal and illegal immigrants since we allow millions of them to come in every year. People are losing their jobs and homes because of the criminal aliens.

How would you feel if a group of people moved into your neighborhood and started taking your jobs, robbing houses, trashing your property, raping your children, getting all the government protection and benefits that you worked and paid for, got free education (you have to pay for it), won't speak your language so when they are talking about your children you don't know what they are saying, dumbing down your childrens education and sucking the lifeblood out of your country so it looks like the one they left like mexico?

Would you welcome them with open arms? If so, you are a fool and don't deserve to be an American. I guess you are glad that your friends and family are losing their jobs and homes and being handed to somebody else who broke laws to get here and will not add anything to our country and are basically parasites.

I hope you, a close family member or close friend lose a job and a home and I will fucking dance with joy. Because I will know that one of the criminal aliens you are defending will have that home and job. Hopefully you and your family will have to live under the bridge and fucking starve. Then think about your viewpoint and what I said here.

There are a bunch of idiots out there that just don't get it !

I've been visiting this site on and off for a couple years, and there still is one question I have not had answered by Daniel or anyone else: How has this "illegal alien invasion" personally affected you? An actual, tangible effect in your personal life? Something that DID happen, not something you're worried might happen?

anon 9:10-I have not personally been affected by Aids so I guess I shouldn't care about that either. What an ignorant comment!

I see your point. Well, if you put it that way, I have not been personally affected by bigots and have not myself been subjected to bigotry, but I still maintain that Daniel can go fuck himself.

an 'uneducated' fool said...

Anon 12:17, I'd like to take you up on your offer. It is clear from your comment that you and I are on the opposite sides of the immigration debate, and yet I consider myself a reasonably intelligent and "educated" adult, so let me ask you, and I'm up for a serious, cordial discussion about this if you are: As someone who wants to "educate" the allegedly "uneducated," what exactly do you want me to know that you think I don't know?

MAX Redline said...

LOL! Since his college days, Wu has never been held accountable for his actions. It seems that he has a winning pattern going.

Likely because so many of the 30-40 year-olds have been programmed to receive. Disappointment is intolerable; they expect to be praised if they show up for work on time.

You don't want to work, you want to live like a king
But the big, bad world doesn't owe you a thing

Get over it

Bobkatt, I'll accept at face value your insinuation that you care about AIDS too (or, at the very least, that you at least understand that a compassionate person should care about it) but the fact of the matter is this: You are not posting regularly on a blog written by someone who will not rest until AIDS goes the way of smallpox; you are a regular poster here where the topic of the day is illegal immigration. So once again: How has this "illegal alien invasion" personally affected you? An actual, tangible effect in your personal life? Something that DID happen, not something you're worried might happen?

I carry a spare tire in my truck because I might have a flat tire. I carry a first aid kit because I might need it. I also received inoculations against some diseases years ago to prevent those diseases. I guess you don't do any of these actions above. My girlfriend was hit ten years ago by an illegal alien without insurance. Why don't you ask Dani Countryman's family about how they have been affected by an illegal alien? Nobody is giving these people a voice. The idiot media won't carry anything for them. It does not fit their agenda.

We also have a missile defense shield (until the democrats scrap it) because there are nuts in the world who would like to kill a lot of us. These nuts have nuclear weapons and missiles to get them here.
