The Anti-Defamation League And La Raza: Old Dogs, Old Tricks
Anti-Defamation League just issued a new report
`Open Season` on Immigrants; Hispanics Target of
Incitement and Violence
According to ADL National Chairman Abraham H. Foxman
Yep, the ADL says the
recent immigration debate is causing an upsurge in
violence against Hispanics:
the public debate over immigration reform has taken
center-stage in American politics and public life, white
supremacists, neo-Nazis and other racists have declared
`open season` on immigrants…”
a result, to a level unprecedented in recent years,
Latino immigrant population has become the primary
focus of hateful and racist rhetoric and extreme
violence—aided, abetted and encouraged by America`s
white supremacist and racist haters.”
The ADL report included examples of
(Once again, these are examples from the ADL report…i.e.
not necessarily accurate, if you know what I`m
saying. I`m not suggesting that these crimes did not
occur, I am only questioning whether the crime was
really motivated by racism.)
Here are a few,
starting with the most recent:
California—Ryan Nicholas Newsome, a member of the
Another Order white supremacist gang, pleaded no
contest for assaulting a Hispanic man.
Tennessee—Jacob Allen Reynolds and Thomas Matthew
broke windows and a refrigerator, vandalized a car,
and spray-painted Nazi symbols on a Mexican food
Texas—Christopher Chubasco Wilkins, a
prison escapee, killed two Hispanic men and one
African-American man by gunshots to the head.
the police are examining a possible racial motive
in Wilkins case.)
Tennessee—Former Klansman Daniel James Schertz was
sentenced to 14 years in prison for selling pipe
bombs to a person he
thought would use them to kill Mexican and
Utah—A white inmate
tried to kill a Hispanic inmate.
California—Four people, three men and one woman,
were arrested in Riverside, California and charged
with making terrorist threats with a hate crime
enhancement. They drove to the home of a Hispanic
person and apparently challenged him to a fight.
Arizona—White supremacist Steve Boggs was
sentenced to death on May 13, 2005, for
murdering three fast-food workers in Mesa, Arizona,
in 2002 during a robbery. According to the ADL,
Boggs said he “rid the world of a few illegals.”
Oregon—A Mexican landscaper in Beaverton was beaten
with a baseball bat, robbed, and told to "go back
home," by a man with a shaved head and a coat with "KKK"
Hmm…remember, the ADL report said
the public debate over
immigration reform has taken center-stage in
American politics… America`s Latino immigrant population
has become the primary focus of hateful and
racist rhetoric and extreme violence.”
most recent example of a hate crime against a Hispanic
was last January…before that there were a handful
in 2005, 2004 and one in 2003.
Congressional debate didn`t even begin until December
2005—just six months ago.
we include only the crimes committed since
the debate began in Congress—you know, because the
ADL is citing this as the cause of increased violence
against Hispanics—there are only two (2).
two (2) incidents.
Would anybody consider that enough evidence to declare
“primary focus of racist rhetoric and extreme violence”?
I mean, anybody other than the ADL…
Or perhaps the ADL is admitting (unknowingly) that
racially-motivated crimes are actually few and far
between these days.
Nah! Then how could they fund-raise?
Back to the report. According to the
press release (scroll down), the ADL is not alone in
thinking this way.
face this emerging new threat, ADL leaders and Cecilia
Vice President for Public Policy of the National
Council of La Raza, the largest national Latino civil
rights and advocacy organization in the U.S., stood
together in Washington, D.C. to outline a broad public
policy Action Agenda…”
is a joke, right? Follow me, folks:
According to the ADL,
issues are to blame for the growing
anti-illegal immigration sentiment in America.
combat this, they formed an alliance (dare I say,
unholy?) with a group called
or The Race.
that is so funny I almost want to write it twice…(Email
Stipulations of the ADL/La Raza Plan (here)
must reform our nation`s broken immigration system…the
current system has created a vulnerable underclass of
people living in our communities who lack meaningful
rights…this situation creates
fodder for extremist groups.
enforcement officials must be prepared to vigorously
investigate and, where appropriate, prosecute
criminal threats of violence and
incitement—including those transmitted over the
Side Note: Hey ADL, why don`t you start with those
midget-terrorist, pseudo-activists over at
UC Santa Cruz who
threatened Michelle Malkin? Oops, Michelle`s a
conservative—I suppose she had it coming.]
law enforcement officials should not be tasked to
investigate and enforce civil immigration laws…it
[fighting illegal immigration] may undermine the
trust necessary for local law enforcement officers
to perform their job effectively within
and the Administration should enact measures and
anti-bias education programs which promote civility
acceptance of differences in our society.
Amnesty, censorship, open borders,
murder of the historic American nation.
Here`s the bottom line according to Bryanna:
Wartime makes strange bedfellows!
latest scam is nothing more than a pathetic attempt by
the ADL to
convince donors that their shake-down, race-baiting
operation is still needed:
Ooh…look at the racism that`s running amok…give us money
and we`ll make it stop!
far as La Raza is concerned, they`ll take any allies
they can get.
Indeed, an opportunist match made in heaven!
