Nativism: August 2009 Archives

I'm A "Left Wing Terrorist"

It looks like the folks at the great pro-migrant blog Immigration Clearinghouse are having an effect.  I've documented some of the online guerilla warfare that goes on in the pro-migrant sanctuarysphere.  It appears that nativists have set up a mirror site to Immigration Clearinghouse in which I get called the following along with a bunch of other pro-migrant blogs:

Groups supporting Illegal Immigration & Open Borders! Groups from the far left wing terrorists who want to destroy America.

[...]
Citizen Orange
[...]

All of these organizations promote and or sponsor open borders and no immigration laws! The federal government needs to look into these groups and find out what they are planning! We suspect that they want to take over America and make it part of Mexico. I f you have any first hand knowledge about these groups trying to partake in terrorists activities, please contact your local FBI field operations manager or call the local police department in your town. These groups are left wing extreamists HATE Groups with one thing in mind, the take over of America.
You can tell the sort of Internet dinosaurs we're dealing with by the sophistication of the site they set up.  All I can say is congratulations to the folks at Immigration Clearinghouse.  Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.  I'm always happy for the free advertisement, too.  The more links I get, the more people find me.


Peter Dao has it absolutely right on the recent protests over at Consider This News:

I've gone on the record disagreeing with the term 'Teabaggers' and with the use of the word 'un-American' - I've done so because despite the astroturfing and the faux-grassroots opposition to health care reform, I place a premium on citizen activism and I don't want to tarnish legitimate protesters, even if I strongly disagree with their politics and ideology. There's no denying that some Americans have real fears and genuine disagreements with Democratic policies and it is wrong to assail their right to protest.

I have, however, singled out racists and other assorted Obama haters, some of whom are intent on inciting violence. They should be spared no scorn and should be universally condemned. Their actions are not about protest and dissent but about hate and violence.

It's also nice to see various leading progressive bloggers take stand for unauthorized migrants.  Pro-migrant blogging has come a long way.
