You know the old saw about the elephant in the room that nobody wants to talk about?
As I said here, “What I find most interesting about this whole (immigrant movement) chain of events is the fact that hostile forign interests (communist, islamic extremist, etc) have ordered forign insurgents (AKA Illegal aliens) to act against the United States national interest on our own soil.
And only a few lonely bloggers talked about it.
The Elephant in the room”
Well someone in the MSM noticed and is finally saying somthing, Lou Dobbs of CNN.
Most of the mainstream media has been absolutely co-opted by the open borders and illegal immigration advocates. I’m not opposed to demonstrations and protests of any kind, even by those who are not citizens of this country, because one way or another, demonstrations and protests enrich and invigorate the national debate and raise the public consciousness of truth.
But only one newspaper, to its credit, reported that illegal aliens and their supporters’ boycott of the national economy on the First of May is clear evidence that radical elements have seized control of the movement. The Washington Post, alone among national papers, reported that ANSWER (Act Now to Stop War and End Racism) has become an active promoter of the national boycott.
Some illegal immigration and open borders activists in the Hispanic community are deeply concerned about the involvement of the left-wing radical group. But others, like Juan Jose Gutierrez, … manages to be both director of Latino Movement USA and a representative of ANSWER.
As Gutierrez told us on my show, “The time has come…where we need to stand up and make a statement. We need to do what the American people did when they pulled away from the British crown. And I am sure that back in those days many people were concerned that was radical action.”
Just how significant is the impact of leftists within the illegal immigration movement? It is no accident that they chose May 1 as their day of demonstration and boycott. It is the worldwide day of commemorative demonstrations by various socialist, communist, and even anarchic organizations.
ABC wasts no time in demonizing Dobbs and defending one of the alleged leftist organizers
Dobbs: We Don’t Need More Illegal Immigrants
Gutierrez said the May 1 date was merely a coincidence, picked to make the biggest impact on Congress.
Now that is comedy!
UPDATE: Rick Moran sums it up very elequently here:
