Someone remarked that now that HotAir is up and running, they can see why Malkin doesn’t allow comments on her blog - and it ain’t because of the lefties.
After the jump, I once again mercilessly steal the “damn-them-with-their-own-words” structure from Pam. Update: Breaking - a new collective noun for people who comment on HotAir below! Prepare yourself for teh genius! (inspired in part by Amanda Marcotte)
Michelle, I could not stand listen to have of that latin bastardization of our National Anthem and hated that flag display. I am also sick of the media covering it as a day without immigrants. Immigrants is NOT the issue! ILLEGAL immigrants is the issue! Why do they pander to this movement. As I type this ABC news just again said immigrants are boycotting schools. It is ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS ABC!![ed: No, it wasn’t only illegal immigrants. Obviously.]
I wonder what the REAL REASON was for that guy from Great Britian to create this Spanish version of our National Anthem? Why doesn’t he translate God Save The Queen into Hindi or Arabic?
The reason why all of this is going on because Washington, DC has become…..WASHINGTON, PC!
Don’t you find it odd they come to the United States to protest? Why don’t they use all that energy and rhetoric a little further south, say…………like MEXICO. Go home…….change your own country. WE don’t need you, never have. Leave and your vacuum will be filled instantly.
And that is another gripe I have….so many of these border jumpers are bad people…drugs and crime seem to be what motivates them. In their country they would be shot..no questions asked.
SEND THEM BACK! IF WE DO NOT THIS WILL BE A LESSER NATION FOR IT. A fence will not work…arm the borders and build a steel wall….patrol it with B52’s and shoot to kill.
A “Day without Immigrants”? Hell, can we make it a week? Or how about a month?
To counter today’s boycotts, on Friday I will be boycotting Cinco de Mayo. No Mexican food, no cold Coronas, and will have to mow my own yard and clean my own house this week.
So. These peoples lives are so bad in their country, they illegally come to our country to find illegal work. Then they take money out of our economy, don’t pay taxes, and spend most of it south of the border. Then they start marching with signs that say things like “this is stolen land” and “reclaim California for Mexico.” Then they bastardize the national anthem and turn the flag upside down. Then they expect free college education for their children and welfare for themselves at our expense. Then they protest not being able to attend school or go to work by taking a day off from school and work. And now they expect mass amnesty, why? We’re supposed to sympathize with these people? Like Hell. LIKE HELL! The demonstrations today are nothing to me except a great opportunity to make arrests and deportations. I say start now, before the riots start.
We took our kids to Schlitterbahn in South Padre Island, Texas yesterday for a day of fun in the sun. (FYI, this is on the border of Texas/Mexico). the predominant language spoken was…drum roll please…spanish. oh yea, and on the way back home last night, we were stopped at a homeland security/border patrol checkpoint somewhere in between Harlingen and Corpus Christi. The agent poked her head in the window and asked if we were all American citizens. “oh si, ocifer.” no checks, no searches, no nothing. we literally rolled through the checkpoint. so much for border security…[Ed.: They never crossed the border, and they’re complaining that they weren’t summarily searched? Dear lord.]
one more thing - i always tell my friends, “why visit Mexico? we already live there.”
ya’ll have a great day!
Here Here! I urge us all to go out and shop today, due to the fact that all the illegals will be protesting, we won’t have to wait in long lines because of them!*
One of the sad effects of these protests is people are changing their opinions of hispanics, in particular mexicans, for the worse. Are they really that stupid to expect us to welcome them with open arms after they DEMAND “rights”?
Like the joke goes, what do you call a tiny Mexican? A SPEC.
And you’re all just SPECs now. You’re OUTTA HERE!
We don’t need you - never did. Thats why we’re Americans and you’re Mexicans.
I have the feeling that enabling comments on HotAir has essentially put my job on autopilot for as long as it’s a going concern.
* Nothing’s funnier than hearing complaints about overcrowding coming from the same end of the political spectrum which is working to restrict family planning. Wingers don’t mind overcrowding as long as the person they’re standing in line behind isn’t brown.
