seems like reasonable issues to raise in Boston.
but i'm sure this exercise of First Amendment rights by Americans (unlike the exercise of those rights by non-Americans) will elicit every non-germane word in the universe ("racist", oh my; "Nazi", oh my my).

You know, transient readers:Boston. Where people FROM Boston in 1775, fought for the right to govern themselves and to avoid payment of taxes for the benefit of people from OTHER countries.

Until you change the law, the aliens for all their pretty US and Mexican flags are illegal. Don't choose and pick which laws you like. I dont like a bunch of laws either, especially if they have the word tax in them. But hey...
Stop the knee-jerk judgement

How intolerant is the writer of this post? Nothing in this flier is racist...they are protesting the fact that they don't the act of entering this country illegally to become legal. Sure some of their montra is insensitive, but you are assuming they say what they say because they are racist...that shows your ignorance and intolerance of their perspective.

If you request tolerance, then you have to give it. If you think about it, they actually have more right to protest in American streets than anyone here illegally.

Racism isn't always overt.

The asshole distributing these leaflets in Quincy proudly stated that he was a descendent of Confederate General Robert E Lee.

It's safe to assume that anyone who takes pride in that is probably a racist.
As you See, Rob Wolff from NHIMC actually collaborates wit5h Trolls who post lewd and defamatory posts and identity thefts.

I think the proper response to this is to re-post his message on the site
in the thread I think he's alluding to:

I think our users would be interested in this. He must know this is
ridiculous.

Bring video cameras and encourage as much inter-racial/cross-ethnic friendship and romantic expression as you can in front of these neo-nazis in disguise. Film them showing their true selves as they prove unable to cope with the mixing of the races.

One poster smeared a man leafleting for this demonstration by linking him to an ancestor, Robert E. Lee. I could smear the poster "paifdl" by recall of his his great, great, great grandpappy too. You go back far enough, you usually find the dusty part of the attic.

But I for one, a Unionist and Lincoln lover, respect R.E. Lee and our nation lacks men of substance like him and Lincoln. (Who respected each other).

Robert E. Lee was a great American. He would be appalled by the domination of the US by international corporations. He would be appalled by the destruction of the American farmer, white and black, by industrial farming. He would be appalled by the courseness of this society. He believed in the goodness of simple people of all races. He was not perfect. But he was wary, as like Jefferson or any true patriot and decent man must be, of any human who purports to forward a perfect system. The idea of limited government, the American idea the misguided illegals and their miscreant liberal mentors purport to want, has been corrupted by Big Government Conservatives and Liberals. Trash like the Bushes and Kennedys pipe up in a feeble effort to mimic the Adamses and Cabots. and the ignorant rootless intellectuals ironically believe that an inbred dullard like GWB reperesents the aristocracy of this Nation. Ha!

And then our Boston-style Liberals (weak descendents of Emerson and Alcott they) can't understand why they are considered freaks in this blow-dry, media-dominated world. More importantly, they are freaks in the lone remaining palaces of our land-the few remaining roadhouses of Jones, Wells and Haggard. In those fortresses, a few tattered Stars and Bars yet fly.

And her brother, Old Glory, shall wave again over our old commons. Our Puritan ghosts shall hover over that gallant band of patriots, haunting the envious mob of mulitculturism that never, never will rise to the Top.

As we battled the savages of old, so we will again prevail! May the LORD blind our enemies and light our way!

Welcome to Boston's premier right wing chat room!
Re: Anti-Immigrant Reactionaries - 4/22 - Boston Common

And by "right wing chat room" the above poster means: Waaaaaa, BIMC doesn't censor people enough on here so that left wing opinions can be cherry picked.

"How intolerant is the writer of this post?"

--Pretty intolerant since he is a white guy who operates a terrorist cell that advocates violent acts to deprive American citizens of their First Amendment rights. I would consider that fucking intolerant.

I would also consider it affiliated with Anarchist Black Cross of Boston since "Chip" was dialoguing with them on their last protest misfire. Time will tell.

NO. I mean, what's the point of reading comments on these stories?

Is posting threats of violence and signing my name to them. That is clearly illegal activity, and BIMC is allowing it to stay up.
Re: Anti-Immigrant Reactionaries - 4/22 - Boston Common
11 Apr 2006
BIMC should really not let terrorist organizations post to their website. (Even if they do agree with or know the members).
Hey Feller...

You contradict yourself in your first post. What you meant to say is in 1775 people in Boston fought the oppression of the British so they could OPPRESS the native americans by crossing the line established in the proclamation of 1763 and this would all be funded by the textile factories using cotton that was all harvested by people who were STOLEN from their land. And the only people who ultimately benefitted were the rich because the poor stayed poor while the rich pitted black, whites and natives against each other. It's time we stand together and attack the REAL ENEMY: the RICH! This system is fucked

Right wing republicans are such puppies on a leash of the rich, landowners and corporations. The rich want the issue to be about the immigrants. To turn americans against people from other lands who wish to come here legally or not. Meanwhile they rake in the profits, lower wages and block union organization. A one year manditory jail term for management of any company hireing illegal workers would stop illegal immigration better than any fence. Do it because it is about law and order. Park a border patrol van in front of Tyson factories and check for papers and Tyson would be out of business in a month. Don't turn this into americans against immigrant as they would like or you will begin to feel the tug of that leash around your neck because your job is next if you have not already lost it to overseas labor.

I want to work for rich people, that is my dream. i will take whatever they give me in exchange for rubbing their tired bodies down after a weekend of shopping. i will be paid to pamper my masters, foreign and domestic. i will be--an AMERICAN!!
Bad Company
12 Apr 2006
my my. we don't like rich republicans. but it's the rich republicans who favor the McCain Kennedy amnesty bill for campensino labor. The working stiff and small business Republicans favor enforcement of US immigration law (now that's surely racist. so,, let's not enforce the civil rights laws either. well, thank god they are not enforced either! silly me. OK, I'll trade you; non-enforcement of immigration law for non-enforcement of civil rights laws. any takers, geniuses?)

See ya on Mayday!
Re: Anti-Immigrant Reactionaries - 4/22 - Boston Common
12 Apr 2006
No I dislike rich republicans and rich democrats and rich greens and rich "socialists" and rich "communists" equally. Fuck 'em all!

And yeah, it is racism that divides the working people of this country and we need to fight it together so that we're all better off.
Re: Anti-Immigrant Reactionaries - 4/22 - Boston Common
12 Apr 2006
your current empirical evidence for racism(please define) the working class(please define as term applies to 21st century American division of labor) is?

a. Your opinion
b. My opinion
c. Sounds like what a leftist website should say
d. Evidence: please use correct APA citation.
e. Dunno.

I am not seeing anyone getting it. Blanket terms.... Don't given citizen ship.. Business wins... can't organize.. they get deported... Guest worker program... You get a lot too choose from in mexico.. visa papers.. let the southern country deal with it, can't come in unless you work for less....These people want the same thing we want... A job..Unfortunately, we let our government let US companies go to mexico and asia.. for what.. yeah cheaper labor.. and no rioghts.. So where are they gonna go.. hey to the country with rights. Don't blame the immigrants, no matter where they come from.. Blame the you know who you voted for (because really democrat or liberal.. business is their friend). We pay taxes.. do we get health care? Streets without holes? schools? We get to be racists and blame it on somebodyelse.... We broke our own unions...When we vote republican the party of small government.. we get big government.. when we vote liberal the voice of the people we get rascism... Tell me now who's fault is it??

Based on your syntax, I would say blame the bartender, Fumduck. You are messed up. I suggest 3 ibuprofen before bedtime, and lots of V8 juice in the morning.

1. Its not land that the flier is fighting about otherwise the writer would be up in arms about foriegn ownership of the bank that own the mortgages that own his land,Bank of scotland.
2. Since politicians represent they can choose what they will. if they were delegates they would be instructed.
3. It is overtly racist and ironic that the writer exorts us to remember the alamo. Which was illegaly siezed from mexico to perpetuate slavery.
I SAY SHUT THEM DOWN, BECAUSE TOMOROW WE WILL BE NEXT.
AMERICA LOVES IMMIGRANTS
14 Apr 2006
America loves immigrants. We hate those who break our laws and enter illegally.
Mike A's Title Search
14 Apr 2006
who stole the alamo? the mexicans inherited Texas from Spain which stole it from well, how many tribes live between Texas and Argentina?
Most Texans were small landholders, sharecroppers and artisans, not slaveowners by the way.

I also reject your stated silly nonsense that the USA is implicitly illegitimate because most of its land was inhabited by prior nations. You can go back to those pre-humans from Tanzania who started to wander the Earth 3 million years ago. Who gave them the right to found Lower Slovakia? Dam,n Romans! Free Gaul!

I'm just pointing out that PC hysterics about the legitimacy of the US can be turned on Mexicans and other Latin American nations, and then on practically every extant nation. Israel? Iraq and Jordan. All created nations as the result of the First World War. The "you exist because you stole my land" argument is always a dead end argument.

Deal with reality as it exists; develop solutions to current problems that cause the least harm to the least number of people. Just a thought.
"We hate those who break our laws and enter illegally."
14 Apr 2006
Speak for yourself. Do not use "we". I don't hate anyone simply for breaking the law.
Re: Anti-Immigrant Reactionaries - 4/22 - Boston Common
14 Apr 2006
"We" refers to Americans. Not you.
I'm an American.
15 Apr 2006
And I and the other Americans I know do not hate undocumented workers.
Re: Anti-Immigrant Reactionaries - 4/22 - Boston Common
15 Apr 2006
Let us be clear. They are not undocumented workers. An undocumented worker is a legal worker who happened to forget his social security card. Illegal aliens are criminals and we want them out of our country.

We ( the MAJORITY of the American people ) oppose ILLEGALS coming to OUR country and using OUR services and taking OUR jobs. We are offended by THEM claiming to be Americans ( which they are NOT and should never be - since they are criminals ) and offended by anyone who supports THEM in any way.

We ( the MAJORITY of Americans ) do not oppose LEGAL IMMIGRANTS from coming to this country and contributing to it, and WE are offended that certain groups of people are using LEGAL IMMIGRANTS to defend ILLEGALS, a shameful act.

WE do not need ILLEGALS to do any jobs, WE have plenty of people who need jobs, and plenty of LEGAL IMMIGRANTS also willing to do them. ILLEGALS do nothing but hurt OUR country. The MAJORITY of ILLEGALS come from third world countries and WE do not want OUR country to become another third world slum, as many of OUR cities have already become because the influence of both LEGAL IMMIGRANTS and ILLEGALS.
Ha Ha Ho Ho I Don't Think So
15 Apr 2006
The "ha ha" rant is a pathetic effort by a leftie illegal lover to "voice" how he/she thinks an antii-illegal, pro-legal immigrant American sounds.

Because of the rant quality, it's obvious a fake.
