Press Two for Deportation

     The town of Pahrump, Nevada recently passed legislation to disallow the flying of foreign flags.  The Reuters article points out the reasons:

Supporters said they passed the measure to hit back at Hispanic demonstrators who carried Mexican flags when they marched in U.S. cities earlier this year to press for rights for 10 million to 12 million illegal immigrants living in the shadows.

“All of the illegal alien protesters are waving Mexican flags, and we just got tired of it,” town board clerk Paul Willis told Reuters in a telephone interview.

“This is the United States, and the Stars and Stripes should fly supreme,” he added.

     I’m with Emperor Misha from the Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler … The Art of Shunning has been lost in our Politically Correct Society:

I have no use for yet another group of entitlement-addicted, divisive assclowns who have no understanding of the words E Pluribus, Unum.

“Unum” does NOT mean “a collection of cliques, gangs and identity groups fighting over special privileges and handouts.”

Nobody is saying, at least I’m not, that you shouldn’t be proud of your cultural heritage. What I am saying is that if you want to be one of us, if you want to be part of the family, if you want for yourself and your family the privileges, rights and duties of being an American, then you have to be an American. You have to accept, welcome and internalize the fact that you’re an American first, and everything else second.

     Couldn’t’ve said it better myself.  

     But then again, maybe I already have said it better, given that I’m a bit closer to the situation.
     I brought my ex-wife to the U.S. from a foreign country.


     So… If they’re going to grant amnesty to illegals, waive all police clearances and language requirements, and give them all the rights of citizens, then I’ll agree with it, if and when my demands are met.

     I want back all the money that it cost me to get her here legally.  All of it!  Including the plane ticket!
     I want paid for the time involved in jumping through the immigration hoops that we had to jump through.  I had to take off work very often before the visa was granted, and then again after it was granted — to remove the Conditional Permanent Resident status.
     I also want a per-diem based on the fact that I was forced to stay longer in a foreign country than necessary while preparing for it all.  Ever try to get into a foreign consulate just after 9/11?  That was a pain in the rear even when I had an appointment.
     And … they can go ahead and grant her citizenship, just to show that they really mean it.  I mean, hey, we both jumped through all of those hoops.  It just seems like the right thing to do.

     Legal Immigration attempts to make sure that people are of decent moral character by checking their background with law enforcement agencies and making sure they’re not murderers, drug dealers, terrorists, rapists, slave traders, kidnappers and/or child molesters.
     We have enough of our own to deal with! 

     Legal Immigration also attempts to ensure that anyone coming to this country can speak our national language — English!
     I am an American.  I don’t want to press 1 for English!

     The whole issue really is this simple: You can’t go into your neighbor’s house and start rearranging the furniture because you don’t like it.

     How can anyone in their right mind argue with that?

    I went to see Carlos Mencia a few days ago and he said something about immagration in general. He said he has a problem with people coming to this country because they want a piece of what we have and want the freedoms that we have. But while they are here they parade around with their home flags, talking about how proud they are of their country and how bad the U.S. sucks…they protest and constantly talk about how bad this country is. Then he looked at us and said, “Guys, I want you to look over at your girlfriend or wife and tell her that you ex girlfriend fucked you better” He then followed up by saying…”because that is what these people are doing, they are coming over here and telling us how their country fucked them better”. I thought that he was right on……and he is from Honduras!


    I couldn’t have said it any better….

    That’s backwards bullshit. This is a country based on free speech. It’s a pillar of our society. Displaying the flag can mean any number of things and be done for any number of reasons. It’s a bigoted, isolationist notion, put forward by racists Latino haters that says they fly their flag because they love their country more than this one. It’s another rallying cry to get the mob to pull the torches out of the basement and light them. I say, fuck off. If that’s your attitude, you are not a citizen of the US. Go live in some dictatorship where the elite class can decide what everyone else can and cannot do. Maybe see if you can find a form of Apartheid still thriving.

    No, it’s a mob of Hispanics screaming how much the US sucks. They’re the ones telling *us* what to do — they’re the “stupid gringo!” racists.

    They come out of their “dictatorship where the elite class can decide what everyone can and cannot do” and bring that mentality here. They need to go home — and only be allowed back if and when they can do it legally.

  5. Monty Says:

    First, you are assuming that they are all here illegally. You can’t do that. Second, you are assuming that they are “hating” the US. There is a huge gap between protesting and hating. Flying the Mexican flag in the US is a statement. It says “hey, we’re here.” The Irish do it regularly, as do Cubans and Germans.

    Protesting is also to be protected. A right here in the US.

    Latinos outnumber blacks and any other minority in this country now. Somehow it is a problem today, and it wasn’t 5 years ago. I think it is a diversion, not a problem. They are scapegoats. A nice common whipping boy that everybody can get behind and equally think are evil.

    I find it dispicable.

    What about all those damn Canadians crossing the border? Send back Celine Dion.

    Find ways to control the immigration without killing people. Set a new standard by both governments. Make it fair and get everyone on board. And enforce it. But being angry at people who want to come to the US and work is not a good solution. If we are not going to really do anything about the issue, then stop making targets out of them. The status quo has not cared about it for a long time. That does not make Mexicans evil. And it won’t make them happy if the rules suddenly change.

    Did you read the articles FROM Pahrump? You might find that half the city council ARE Mexican-American. They’re *very* in touch with what’s going on in there town — something you are not.
