Update: Five videos now added (scroll down)
May Day, 2010. The Illegals were out as usual being manipulated by the Commie insurgents to break America from with-in.
What about about our laws? The illegals and the anarchists are of one mind, ” Laws! We don’t need no stinkin’ laws”.
But Americans (of all races, as well as legal immigrants) countered this hateful anti-American rally with a patriotic reminder that to be a citizen of ANY country, you must respect the law. Otherwise you will have anarchy…..
While reading their signs, we wondered, “Why do they even want to live here, when they resent all things American so much .”
Another observation, apparently, the police decided for the first time that we can remember, to have next to NO presence and as the illegals and the Truthers became aware that the police were in absentia (the couple of auxilary police looked dazed) so we were swamped at different times. These few officers joined the Auxilary Officer you see close to the camera (briefly) near the end of our two and half hour counter-rally….and then disappeared….We were on our own. Very, very odd.
Slide show of both sides:Vodpod videos no longer available.
Resentment and entitlement are not winning arguments for citizenship.
Added to the mix, since this is Union Square, the ubiquitous 9-11 Truthers / We are Change/ End the Fed nut-Jobs (claiming to be John Bircher ‘conservatives’) were on hand mixing it up with everyone….
The 5 videos are next:
Part 2: The Angry Commie vs the Truthers… Since this is Union Square, the ubiquitous 9-11 Truthers / We are Change/ End the Fed nut-Jobs (claiming to be John Bircher ‘conservatives’) were on hand to debate this very angry Commie.. He was ballistic that HIS day, May Day, was being used to protest the violation of our immigration laws!
Part 3 – Two Immigrants dialogue: A legal Russian immigrant talks with an illegal immigrant surrounded by a curious crowd. ( re: sound. My good camera (a Canon HD30) battery went dead so I had to use my Nikon p 80)
Part 4 – One of the organizers of the illegals came over to chat. Since there was no police presence, the usually keeps us all on our own sides of the street, the Leftists kept coming over to our side. Twice (in the video) you can see the illegals go after our people when they attempted to do the same, go to their side to talk (to build some bridges) instead we were assaulted. This is excerpts of the responses from the leftist. She was questioned at times by the a legal Russian immigrant. (who is assaulted by the illegals after they tell her she’s not an American because she has an accent) And of course one of the black women in our group was told she was on the wrong side of the street. They definitely gave her a hard time, but she gave it right back!
Part 5: The Patriots and Illegals manage to exchange their points of view in spite of the noisy crowd. This Pro-American counter-Rally (of all races and as well as legal immigrants) was a patriotic reminder that to be a citizen of ANY country, you must respect the law. Resentment and entitlement….. Why do the illegals even want to live here, when they resent all things American so much .
FYI: If you aren’t familiar with the 9-11 Truthers etc, a recent post here on the We Are Change-Gang (in Times Square)
And more from them at Ground Zero (2008)
There was, as usual, the Anti- Israel crowd on another corner…..tediously spreading their lies… (pictures posted soon)
