El Gran Boicot: Paranoia Strikes Deep

posted at 10:21 am on May 2, 2006 by Bryan

John Podhoretz, God love him, is an open borders kind of guy. I don’t think I’ve ever seen him address the massive security concerns that come with open borders. And I didn’t think I’d ever seen him engineer a bizarre conspiracy theory about illegal immigration–until today. Writing in the Post, JPod says:

The organizers of yesterday’s nationwide demonstration’s chose to convince illegals not to go to work. To what end? For what purpose? The industries that employ such workers have spent decades engaged in lobbying activities designed to loosen restrictions. Why would the organizers choose to punish them?

I have an answer. They are doing so for the same reason they encourage the use of Mexican flags at demonstrations, the singing of the National Anthem in Spanish, and the insistence that lawbreakers be given immediate and unconditional citizenship.

They are doing so because they are secretly in the employ of the anti-immigration lobby.

I hope he’s not serious. In order to believe in that conspiracy theory, you have to believe that International ANSWER–the same people who have organized the largest anti-war demonstration over the past few years and who regularly compare President Bush and other major Republicans to Nazis, and whose red hand helped orchestrate the illegal immigration marches in April and yesterday–is secretly working with Rep. Tom Tancredo. You have to believe that MeCHa and the Aztlan militants are secretly working with Mark Krikorian and the Minutemen. And the secret never got out until the intrepid JPod unmasked it.

In other words, you have to be nuts.

JPod, there’s a simpler answer, or ANSWER, to your question. The people who organized yesterday’s uprisings are true militants of the old-school Communist variety. Instability is good for them. Dischord is their best friend. They’re trying to start a genuine revolution of the masses and usher in a new Communist regime right here. These large-scale marches are the perfect vehicle. ANSWER and its allied groups are co-opting the illegal immigration movement just like they co-opted the anti-war movement, and are guiding both movements to further their own revolutionary ends.

John is off his Pod! The “undocumented” immigrants achieved one outcome they didn’t expect. THEY LOST THEIR UNDOCUMENTED STATUS. Now all of America sees the light.

You have to give John some credit. If he really is starting to wake up and pay attention it would be hard not to start thinking that the only way the actions of those in charge on the Left make sense is… if they’re working for the Right.

Oh sure, there is another explanation for someone wearing a “Keep your laws off my body” shirt demonstrating for socialized medicine, and for the “No War for Oil!” sticker on the SUV parked at the rally protesting the high cost of gas, but who wants to admit that they’re an idiot?

Love this site but it needs to retake remedial math; one plus one is two not three! Seriously, the “comments” counter seems to be out-of-whack or just maybe it too was a pupil at a government school and took Governmental / Congressional accounting 105!

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist or even a PhD Pundit to see the truth of this May 1st walkout & about.
Did you notice all the Che Guevara photos being waved at the Tv cameras???
NO, these were not photos of George Clooney in a beret.
Che Guevara was a Latino Communist icon who left Argentina to help Fidel Castro win the Communist takeover of Cuba. Perhaps all those suffering victims from Cuba remember Che.
So, what were these Illegals parading with Che photos trying to say to us?
The Communist Leftists are still lurking around and now they have latched on to a group they can control 100%.

And what are US Citizens & pundits doing? Wringing their minds trying to UNDERSTAND what is going on. Get a Clue!

John Podhoretz is most probably secretly employed by “ANSWER incorrectly”….
Its just another attempt to decieve, distract, and mis-direct so the MSM viewing Americans don’t catch on to the invasion.
Maybe this “slight of something” magician should be put in a huge fishbowl filled with water for 7 days.

Conspiracy theories are fun, they give the talking heads something to say. But the fact still remains illegals cost us a lot (http://texastowncar.com/WordPress/?p=5).

Just some personal thoughts on “Uno de Mayo”

I did as you requested, and went out shopping today.
Spent the whole wad…. my month’s allowance.
Went to Wal-Mart, Alco, Auto Zone, Culligan Water,
the gas station and grocery store.
Bought stuff I really didn’t need right now, but may in the future.
And know what ? It was a delightful experience.
Nobody pushing/shoving, no snotty nosed kids bawling,
everyone was polite, and I didn’t hear one word of Spanish.
Damn, I wish the mojados would boycott every day !!
Better yet, just get the hell out, and go back whence you came.

When you live in the Southwest, this is “special”.
Can’t wait for the Cinco………
