Mr. Moonbat Reconquistador

posted at 2:02 pm on April 28, 2006 by Michelle

Get a load of this wild interview on Fox News Channel’s Dayside with illegal alien strike advocate Javier Rodriguez. He praises the new illegal alien national anthem (“You have to go with it”), trashes our troops in Iraq (“you’re killing children”), and accuses Americans of “not allowing [illegal alien children] to go to college.”

Hat tip: Josue Sierra, who has more.

Welcome to Reconquista.

What a loser. Hope people like this keep making fools of themselves as they damage their cause. Play the Iraq and children card, what does that have to do with his illegal Mexican friends?

Wade on April 28, 2006 at 2:11 PM

Why does he want to be here again?

It’s amazing how many people leave their home country to come to America, and immediately start telling us how good it was where they came from.

If we change to be just like the Mexico they love, we’ll be just like the Mexico they left! Poor, corrupt, and everyone wants out.

high_desert_wanderer on April 28, 2006 at 2:27 PM

As a sixth generation American of Mexican-American background, I am disgusted with these people who say give us special treatment. And yet they rip this great nation apart at every opportunity presented to them. If they want to be mad at history maybe they should be upset at Santa Anna for choosing to save his life over fighting to the death to keep Texas and the rest of the southwest from becoming part of America.

Maybe Michelle and the bigger players should ask Congress to change the law so you can only be a citizen of one country, and no longer hold dual-citizenships here and abroad.

jasoneverts on April 28, 2006 at 2:31 PM

It used to be that people didn’t care about illegal immigration. But now, we’re waking up, we’re seeing that this is an important issue. I think that, some day soon, people will start basing how they vote on the words of men like Javier Rodriguez. And I hope that when they do, they will recognize that his interests are not ours.

Savage on April 28, 2006 at 2:48 PM

Gotta love that woman in the audience telling him to be quiet.

kmcguire on April 28, 2006 at 3:07 PM

Let us boycott business like Tyson Chicken, which plans to close on Monday in support of these illegal aliens, and that we will not use their product for caving into these illegal scumbags. If you should run into a place of business that has closed in sympathy to this anti-American onslaught then let them know that you will help them stay closed because you will not go back there again. Simply put we need an American Anti-Illegal day and we want these illegal aliens heading back to where they came from. American is for Americans and not Illegal’s.

President Chuck on April 28, 2006 at 3:09 PM

Juro Fidelidad a la bandera
de los Estados Unidos de América
y a la República para la cual esto está de pie,
una nación bajo Dios, indivisible,
con Libertad y Justicia para todos.

“You” might want to practice this, translate it and recite back. “You” are welcome to go back from where hence “you” came from and start all over and maybe the next time “you” feel like being a citizen again, “You” could take that citizen’s test again. Please keep your comments about Iraq to yourself because the last thing we need from “You” is a lecture about the American GI’s killing children. If “you” want to be an internationalist then go somewhere else and practice “your” Marxist and Leninist ways because I am not to chez on idelogies that have killed more children in the world than Stalin, Moa, Pol Pot, and Castro who starved children because of a ridicules economic system that failed. How dare you lecture “us” on killing children…

JamesAKaplin on April 28, 2006 at 3:22 PM

Mr. Kaplin you put just right. You got my Ditto.

President Chuck on April 28, 2006 at 3:26 PM Our anti-immigrant day is May 5th. Lets show the country that the voice of 300 million far outweighs 11 million!

the observer on April 28, 2006 at 3:31 PM

You know what really gets me. The sneering sanctimony of this man. The holier than thou attitude of America haters really ticks me off.

calnevari on April 28, 2006 at 3:54 PM

Heck, I’ve been boycotting Tyson chicken for about 12 years.

If it weren’t for Tyson money, we’d have never heard of the Clintons. Bill would be managing some trailer park in Arkiansas and hillary would be some unknown hack lawyer.

It is kind of difficult to boycott Tyson though… They have a lot of subsidiaries (you have to read the fine print on product labels.) And a lot of other food makers use tyson chicken in their ‘value added’ products.

LegendHasIt on April 28, 2006 at 4:03 PM

Imagine if America marched into Mexico and demanded that the Mexican National Anthem be changed. The cries of imperialism, violating Mexican sovergnity, racism, lack of cultural understanding and God knows what else would be loud enough to make a person’s ears bleed.

Why is it that so many illegal aliens who come here DEMAND that America change to resemble their home countries? If their home countries are so great, THEN WHY DID THEY NOT STAY THERE??????

The False Dervish on April 28, 2006 at 4:13 PM

To whom it may concern:

There is an excellent academic article that addresses this issue. It is about thirteen pages long, but it is extremely good and very much worth the read. It is also free from any sort of P.C. driven goobldy gook.

Again, I very much recomend reading it. It doesn’t directly tie in to the topic of illegal aliens, but it does go a ways in explaining Javier Rodriquez’s stance.

EFG on April 28, 2006 at 4:14 PM

Wow, I actually love this guy – his contempt for the U.S. is doing more to make a case for a wall and stricter enforcement than all the Minutemen put together. Javier, PLEASE keep running your big mouth, ok?

thirteen28 on April 28, 2006 at 4:14 PM

As much as I am proud to be a Latino, sometimes I just want to smack my people upside the head. This “boycott” on Monday is only going to backlash and hurt the cause. I dont understand why the “real” latino leaders tell them it is not racist to enforce the law, it is racist for Hillary to stand up and say I see people who clean my toilets, babysit children and so on.

This spanish national anthem is the tip of the iceberg with the backlash. Que pasa mi gente??

JVelez on April 28, 2006 at 4:15 PM

I had once thought about learning Spanish so I could help Mexicans living here, but after all this, I’ll learn it anyway just to be able to understand what they say when they think we don’t understand them!

geekrunner on April 28, 2006 at 4:37 PM

I love this country too much, singing the National Anthem In Spanish make me sick to my stomach. I work so hard to become citizen of this great USA, why these illegals just come here and step all over us. I will do all my shopping on Monday, like Rush said today, most of the uninsured will be off the road on Monday, so enjoy May 1st.

glomicela on April 28, 2006 at 4:42 PM


The “real” latino leaders will not do as you ask because they afraid of being called “sell-outs” and “Uncle Tomales.”

Basically the same thing happens when Italians criticize the Mafia and when Arabs criticize terrorists, etc.

It is a sad situation, indeed, and perhaps a dangerous one.

The False Dervish on April 28, 2006 at 4:54 PM

Please keep talking. Please, please, please!! You just make your cause look even more idiotic. Killing the children? puuuuleeeeezzzee spare me. next thing i know, you’ll be taking out your tiny violin and playing the saddest song in the world.

pullingmyhairout on April 28, 2006 at 5:16 PM

I hope he is kept front and center in this debate. He will energize true Americans.

bopbottle on April 28, 2006 at 5:19 PM

Being against illegal immigration means you are anti immigration, racist;
Being against rape means you are anti love making;
Being against bank robbery means you don’t want people to have money they need;
Being against identity theft means you are anti privacy rights;
Being against drug dealers means you are anti commerce;
Being against kidnapping/ransom means you are anti capitalist;
Being against treason means you are anti freedom of speech

pappy on April 28, 2006 at 5:24 PM

The really disturbing part of this is that Javier is the “moderate” face of the movement. I’ll be shopping on Monday, supporting the capitalist system.

As for Javier; Yo no quiero escuchar tu basura, tio.

MCPO Airdale on April 28, 2006 at 5:28 PM

Dittos on the Tyson chicken. An old cocaine buddy of the ex gov’s..pardoned, of course.

If I see only Tyson at the market, I buy beef or pork.

Jimmyboy1 on April 28, 2006 at 5:40 PM

Wow….I hope this guy goes on tour. I can’t honestly think of someone else I’d rather have sounding the wake up call on this. Of course once he’s done our recruiting for us, we can revoke his citizenship here and deport him right on back to Mexico. I mean seeing as how Mexico is obviously so much better. I can’t turn on the news without hearing about the endless wave of American immigrants spilling over the Mexican border doing the jobs that Mexicans don’t want to do….

kaseiryu on April 28, 2006 at 5:51 PM

Presadent Bush please kick these people out of this country, there only coming here to have their babies, I know a couple personally, some are drug dealers, some just to send money back to their families, most are good people but they don’t belong here. Do not; I say do not Mr. Presadent make them citizens, there will only be millions of more people who will vote for the libs.

birdman on April 28, 2006 at 5:57 PM

kaseryu is dead on target!
most Americans have closed a blind eye to illegal immigration, until the massive “marches” of the past few weeks. the more publicity these invaders get, the more they demand “the spot light” on them, the more the common people of The USA will be aroused and made aware of the threat.
let Me see if I have this straight ( AGAIN)
folk break into My house, and tell me what I HAVE to do to make them feel “welcome”? a couple of weeks ago that included NOT flying the flag of MY nation, or wearing clothes whose colors might be the same as those on said flag,I HAVE to learn the burglars language, pay for his education, health care, housing, etc and NOW I have to change MY national anthem to his language to make him feel “included” ( not to mention including new verses condeming Me and My forebears ) Personally I enjoy the mexican neighbors I have, admire the work ethic, and the love of life they share. I dont, however, like not knowing who is who and where folk live.
seems to Me its just common sense. give all illegal aliens 90 days to register at the local courthouse with positive ID, and recieve a new biometric identification card with status, residence, etc included thereon.
after 90 days if found with no card? sent back to what nation they came from. after the 90 days then we can decide how to address the issue of how to handle the folk that are here illegally.
common sense also dictates that when the boat is leaking, bailing helps, but first PATCH the leak(s), so build the wall! I am and have always been pretty much a single issue voter, and that issue should always be natl. defense ( the rest of the issues dont matter if there is no nation, every simple ole country boy or beachbum knows THAT) and I can tell you this is the issue for 2006, because illegal immigration IS a matter of National defense.
and this bit about “we cant deport them’??? seems to me if we can put a man on the moon 40 years ago, we oughta be able to get a guy from san diego to tiajuana without much sweat

Michelle, thanks for this exciting new venue, and come on down to the beach some time!

colorfulbeachpersona on April 28, 2006 at 6:13 PM

People like Mr. Rodriguez are crazy and demented! His socialist politics have no place in this country but have helped to make his preferred country, Mexico, a poor cousin. The only answer to his politics is to tell him “Hell no” and then that he should shut up and sit down!

DougW on April 28, 2006 at 6:16 PM

I think the government ought to classify Javier Rodriguez as an enemy alien (they did this sort of thing during WWII), revoke his citizenship, and deport him immediately.

jaleach on April 28, 2006 at 6:19 PM

jaleach Youhit the nail right on the head; right on.

birdman on April 28, 2006 at 6:31 PM

There is a congressman, I forget the name right offhand, that has introduced a bill to make our laws on illegal immigration the same, word for word, as Mexico’s….let me do a little research on it, bet I can find it…But it would be the FIRST time I would support useing another countries laws in our own.

MalkinFan on April 28, 2006 at 6:33 PM

The whole time that I was watching this video I was expecting Mike Myers to rip off the Rodriguez mask and say “Had you going didn’t I” This guy’s funnier than Bagdad Bob!!

PoppysBoy on April 28, 2006 at 6:42 PM

Maybe the DNC will make Javier their next chairman. He does sort of, uh, fit the mold of his predecessor, don’t you think?

JodyBlonde on April 28, 2006 at 6:44 PM

I would like to thank the staff at Hot Air for providing us with such compelling video of Juliet Huddy. I’m going to watch it several more times and I’ll try to pay attention to the cluebatting she’s giving old Javier at least once.

I don’t know if it will work, but I’m willing to take one for the cause. I’ll be right there, Juliet!

Pablo on April 28, 2006 at 7:26 PM

The blind eye has been opened… In my recent travels through the rural Midwest I found that the chord has been struck. Voters are taking notice. On more than one occasion I had to hear about someone’s feelings about protesters waving flags not of our own country and how their wages are lower because some illegals are working at their local plant for half of the normal wage. (That was unverified) With the recent INS raids though, I hope those employers take note. They are breaking the law, stiff penalties are in store for each and every individual they employ. If that means I can’t buy chicken at the grocery store anymore so be it. I will eat more seafood. Perhaps the companies that invested in an illegal workforce should have weighted the consequences before they went that route!

reflexx on April 29, 2006 at 12:12 AM

He just sounds like a typical Democrat to me…

NRA4Freedom on April 29, 2006 at 12:51 AM

People like him are doing us a big favor by waking people up and Making more people flock to the minutemen, and other Anti-ILLEGAL-immigration. For Him to insult our soilders and mock this country that gives you that freedom to critize it- Yeah Mr. wannabe-Castro, try Critizing your Mentor in Cuba and see hor far that takes you.

May 1st I buy for the economy- May 5th I Refuse to do buiness with any company that serves illegals of ANY nationality.

Solid_Snake on April 29, 2006 at 2:28 AM

Javier is wonderful. I hope the MSM gives him lots of airtime. After watching this clip, I’m starting to look forward to the May 1st demonstrations. Let’s keep putting microphones in front of these people. Let’s give them more rope.

Tom McLaughlin on April 29, 2006 at 6:57 AM

Billy the Kid on April 29, 2006 at 8:16 AM

HOW MANY COMMENTORS HERE visit and on a daily basis?

I’m my humble opinion if you do neither you will not have all the information on this issue you need to battle the likes of Javiar, President Bush, the Catholic Church, and big business. Please participate in both.

I agree wanderer.

bucktowndusty on April 29, 2006 at 10:38 AM

Don Tyson bought and paid for (out of petty cash) Bill and Hillary Clinton after Bill’s defeat for a second term as Arkansas Governor. After Bill did his penance at the Tyson throne his rise to power continued unabated. There is lots of interconnection between the tentacles of this infamous pair and the chicanery they have committed.

Tyson foods is a major employer of immigrants of all stripes in the State of Arkansas and beyond. It’s becoming very difficult to boycott Tyson….they’re into everything on a national scale. That original investment in Bill and Hillary has paid off far better than her cattle futures venture.

RedWireNut on April 29, 2006 at 10:42 AM

Other posters are correct. This guy is the best “ally” we can have on growing our constituency for fighting the illegal immigration problem.

By the way, have any of you heard the drive-by-media labeling this as “President Bush’s immigration quagmire”? It is sure to come pretty soon!

Acts20:24 on April 29, 2006 at 12:01 PM

When are we going to say enough is enough. Poll after Poll illustrates the outrage we have with Illegal Immigration.

I voted for GWB but I am sick and tired of his refusal to enforce the laws of this country. I think it is high time that GWB be impeached.

He has had almost 5 years to enforce the Immigration laws yet he continues to order the DHS to stand down. He took swore an oath to enforce the Constitution. He has done everything he can to cause the invasion from Mexico. It is estimated that 10,000 a day cross the border and he refuses to do anything meaningful to stop it.

I say impeach GWB, I am fed up with his “Jobs Americans Will not Do”, What about the job we elected him to do?

I live in Southern California which is turning into a third world cesspool while GWB wants to give these criminals Amnesty and this will encourages even more to come.

We need to:
Build a fence
Put the military on the border
Fine Employers like Tyson
Scrap the EOIR system
Deport Illegals as we find them.

No Amnesty No Guest Workers and Impeach Bush.

ScottyDog on April 29, 2006 at 1:42 PM

“By the way, have any of you heard the drive-by-media labeling this as “President Bush’s immigration quagmire”? It is sure to come pretty soon!”

No surprises here. This could very well come to pass, as I believe G.W. is on the wrong side or weak position of the issue. I just could not believe that he is ignoring the country’s demand that the following be done:

Build the wall across the border. This needs to be done before anything else to stem the illegal invasion of our country.
Penalize employers for employing illegal workers. Such employers are addicted to cheap labor, promoted unfair competition, stifled fair compensation, and retarded technological advances that could make us competitive without heavy reliance on labor.
Deport those who are here illegally. Anarchy is sired when lawbreakers are tolerated. The country must bite the bullet on this one to preserve the integrity of our laws. A systematic deportation program for the 12 million who are here must start now no matter if it takes three, four, five years, to do.
Stop all incentives that promote illegal migration. Immigration law and enforcement need to be fixed as it is broke.

The party that supports the above actions will be rewarded by American voters come 2006 and 2008.

TrueKatipunero on April 29, 2006 at 2:29 PM

Simple problem-Simple solution
We are at war with an asymetric enemy. Homeland security is the paramount issue. People should be legally welcomed enter America through controlled entry points- or be shot as infiltrators. Seal the borders and start registering those already here NOW.

Reality Check on April 29, 2006 at 4:54 PM

Blah, Blah, Blah.
This Javier Rodrigues has no talking points nor any facts to support his pile of defecation. All he likes to do and can do is echo the baseless talking points of fat blow-hards like Sen. Ted Kennedy(who by the way, started this whole fiasco back in 1965) I would like to see what Mr. Rodrigues would do if he were on the front lines in Iraq. He probably would crap in his pants at the first hint of battle.

HerrSuntaug on April 29, 2006 at 6:55 PM

Intelligent people can make a difference. So can dummies. I used to have a live and let live idea about our new neighbors here in the the US. Smart people such as Michelle and La Shawn have had an influence. Dummies such as Javier are even more convincing. Most of the illegal aliens I have met in person are the kind of hard working people who would be good for our country. Even a few like Javier will hurt. The endgame . . . control of our borders is essential to our survival.

creative dude on April 29, 2006 at 9:14 PM

May 1 – Buy American Day
May 5 – Boycott ILLEGAL Immigrant Business Day

SPREAD THE WORD and lets show the world that you can’t threaten our LAWS, our ECONOMY or our PATRIOTISM in our own backyard!!!

dddave on April 30, 2006 at 11:03 AM

I think we must make sure everyone sees the people behind the May 1 demonstrations use any means at their disposal to creat chaos, disinformation and outright lies. They use a variety of causes to promote their agenda, which hasn’t changed in over 100 years: change America into a “socialist utopia” where “they” make the rules regardless of what the majority want. If you look close enough you see that they are the puppeteers pulling the strings of people who have no idea what they are supporting behind the curtain.

We need to make sure we don’t put any more people in local, state or national offices with this ideology. Listen to Ted Kennedy, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Susan Sarandon, ad infinitum and realize that all of them come from money or made money and then found their “cause”: socialism. It started long before the 60’s and garnered strength throughout the last 40+ years. They have allowed or used their power to destroy what they couldn’t change and look where we have ended up today. Lord help us!

sharinlite on April 30, 2006 at 12:56 PM

Jerk! I just now listened to this wind bag. If we are “stigmatizing children and not allowing them to go to college” then what is he doing here. I thought everyone got a free ride..what does he have to complain about. Pig traiter!!!! Dual citizenship??..that should NOT be allowed. You are either with us or you are against us…so therefor this Commie Bastard is against us. Go back to Mexico or wherever it is you came from. This man has no idea what freedom means. Neither did he or his ancestors fight for it.

Sandys Beach on April 30, 2006 at 10:28 PM

I find it interesting that the government and many citizens of this country are willing to allow in an unlimited number of low skilled workers into this country. They compete for low skill jobs along with legal immigrants and citizens. Their presence also serves to lower wages in this sector.

I wonder how the politicians and and other pro-illegal immigrant people would feel if major corporations were to start hiring thousands of illegal immigrant engineers, systems analysts, programmers, nurses, mathematicians; well, you get the idea. There are plenty of highly skilled, well-educated Indians, Chinese, and eastern Europeans who would love to come to the US without having to go through the time-consuming and frustrating paperwork which accompanies getting a green card.

I wonder what kind of wages these folks would be willing to work for in order to have a chance to come to the United States? This would be a huge opportunity for employers to lower the wages of in-demand professions.

If we give in to the demands of the open borders people, and have what amounts to unlimited illegal immigration, what’s to stop Microsoft, Exxon, GE, or any other company from hiring as many illegal immigrant engineers, etc as they can. Why not help bring these folks over?

I’ll tell you why not. Can you imagine the hell that would break loose if this kind of thing happened in large numbers and so out in the open. It’s one thing for Tyson Chicken to hire unskilled illegals to work in their factories and quite another, thank you, for Exxon to hire an illegal immigrant Indian engineer. That would be taking a job from, and lowering the wages of the upper middle class. The MSM would be beside itself. Why, the next thing that might happen is that they’ll be bringing Indian cameramen, and technicians, and maybe *gasp* writers over.

Remember the hell that was raised when tech companies whated to raise the number of visas for computer programmers because they said that there were not enough Americans and legal immigrants to fill those jobs. I can’t remember what the actual visa was called. H-something — I’m too lazy to look it up. And this was a request to bring people in legally.

It’s ok to lower the wages of and/or take jobs from Americans and legal immigrants in the low wage job sector, but quite another thing to do the same to the high wage sector.

It doesn’t seem fair. I’d hate to have my family in the same situation as those who relie on wage earners in jobs who have to compete with a constant and growing influx of illegals. It must be frustrating to watch these demonstrations and even more frustrating to watch employers be so upfront about supporting non-enforcement of our immigration laws so they can have continued access to cheap labor.

jebel911 on May 1, 2006 at 12:27 AM

There needs to be a stipulation that if you want to become a citizen of this country, you must renounce/give up any citizenship you might have anywhere else. You can’t have it both ways. Your loyalty can only serve one land.

Javier Rodriguez: Go home. Expend as much energy there as you are here and you just might become the next el Presidente de Mexico, and then you can fix all that is wrong with that country, instead of “finding fault” with this one. What’s that? They might not take you back? No wonder!


woodcdi on May 1, 2006 at 12:38 AM

Well put, Woody.

How can it possibly be that the “worst country in the world” is also the one everyone wants to join? We hear so much about the “great” healthcare system of Cuba. Why aren’t people turning old Chevys into rafts and setting sail from the Florida Keys, toward Cuba?

Why aren’t more people sneaking across the border into Mexico? Why aren’t critically ill people being flown into Europe for brain surgery, heart surgery, cancer treatment? Why do people flock into the US for their education?

We need to ask these questions more often and more LOUDLY. And we need to stop being the doormat for the rest of the world.

-Woody (also)
