en masse

in mass means something entirely different, and I'm not ging to give you enough credit to think that was a play on words intended to make fun of fat Americans.

/will take a couple of your valium, though.

Oh puh leeze! I used to have some respect for Fox Sports being separate from their dippy news network, but the fact they interjected that "a few" people yelled Osama and burned a flag suggests a line being blurred. Great, so instead of having psychic John Edwards (Crossing Over - cancelled last year on Sci-Fi) on Foxnews as an expert on Terry Schiavo, Edwards will be commenting on US chances in Germany 06. You had some idiots, big deal, it's not even worth mentioning.

Excuse me? What did you say Mexico? Did you just say that you'd like to give us Baja California? Sure, we'll take that! Thanks!

You'd think history would suggest to Mexicans that they not taunt their Northern neighbor.

Dude, I agree with the main idea of your post - it's no big deal, just some drunk idiots - but seriously, rtf thread...or read the article a bit more carefully. The story is from the Associated Press.

Oh looky... another chunk of Americans getting riled up, and thinking that the opinion of an entire country is reflected in the chants of a few fans. Keep usin the ol' noggin, and eating your freedom fries.

"Well, it was soccer. So they knew no one that matters in the US actually saw the game."

Sort of how soccer fans feel that you don't matter either. Thanks for sharing.

"It really scares me that we have a majority of people in here looking to tear down any news organization or any other influence that really shows you what's going on out there,"

Even worse, again, is people that see what a news organization shows them, and automatically assumes that chanting "Osama" reflects the outlook of all.
 
2005-03-28 12:16:57 PM
pshaw - Big deal - so a bunch of drunk sports fans chanted something offensive at a ball game. Gasp. As long as we remember to chant REMEMBER THE ALAMO when the mexicans play here then everything will be a-ok. Oh wait - no one shows up to soccer games in the US - oh well.

Not to get too technical, but I think they do remember the Alamo, and would like to rub our noses in that too.

Remember San Jacinto would be more offensive to them, I think.

Or, if you shout "Remember the Alamo" you better be running at them with a whole bunch of buddies.

Fark Mexico. If we need cheap labor, why don't we let in the 100 million Chinese wanting to come here *legally* who will work twice as hard for half the cost? We don't need illegal Mexicans for cheap labor. There are millions of people around the world wanting to come here but can't, because our immigration laws limit the number of immigrants. But Mexicans somehow became the privileged race who don't have to follow immigration laws. If illegal immigration is so great, why do we even have immigration laws, why are we stopping those 100 million Chinese and others around the world from coming here? Must be racism, Mexicans are the priveleged race, all others have to follow the immigration laws for bad races.
 
2005-03-28 12:22:31 PM
Say what you want, defend the US all you can, but a stadium full of people booing our National Anthem is a warning flag, folks.

We're bastards worldwide. Reason and compassion are going to take the back seat if we keep letting our government tear ass around the world like we're Mr. Bad.

Note: we WILL get our asses kicked good someday. I'm not gonna wave a flag and say how wonderful it is. I'd say the rest of you 280 million or so had better get your heads out of the proverbial ASS.

"But Mexicans somehow became the privileged race "

Mexican is no longer a nationality, but is now a.. race? Chinese is now a race too? Wow, changes.

Do you have any data to back up these stats?

Because than Wal-Mart would have to pay them at least minimum wage. The reason we don't end illegal immigration is because the agribusiness and service industries lobby politicians to ignore it.

Want to end it tomorrow? Fine any company found with an illegal immigrant working for them $5,000,000 a head. You'd reduce the amount of illegal immigration 10 fold. Of course, then companies would have to hire American workers and pay them minimum wage...

Cut off the illegal aliens, and watch your taxes drop. Yes, the price of agriculture and such will go up. But it will be offset by a reduction in the burden on the states burden (welfare, medicare, prisons, etc.).

Hurrrrr...

Soccer is dumb and its fans all suck!

Hurrrrr...

Mexicans are dirty and they all want to come to America.

Hurrrrr...

In America, sports fans act with dignity and respect.

Hurrrrr...

We should do bad stuff to Mexico for this.

Dear God, I know you don't exist, but for just one day, could you PLEASE make stupid hurt?

Easier said than done. What do you want, death squads clearing the streets of El Paso?

The War on Illegal Aliens might as well be the War on Drugs.

You'd still need the taxes to fund Border Patrollers and Federal agents.

We haven't needed cheap labor for decades. We've had massive labor surpluses for decades and haven't needed immigration. Also, if you think illegals stick to cheap labor jobs you don't live in a state where racial porkbarreling aims to train illegals in higher paying trades and plenty make it into these without that help.

Mexicans are better than Chinese as immigrants, legal or not, because Mexicans have a history of understanding the problems of racial division, whereas the Chinese are still racially expansionist and largely racial supremacists, just as Europeans were for a couple hundred years. Just because European based cultures reformed their thinking doesn't mean any single other culture on the planet has. Nothing about Chinese racial supremacy has altered much, they just haven't had the clout to enforce that deeply held view lately. Once they do, you won't notice that much has really changed in their policies and ideas all along, they just finally felt they had enough factories and arms to let everyone know who the true superior race on this planet is.

But as I say, I'm hoping for something viral to wipe out enough of the human race that things can just simmer down for a bit. At least that way we won't have radioactivity for millenia, and the survivors might have immunity.

I'm finding these "Fox News" vs. "AP" comments interesting on this thread. Clearly in this case this "news" came from the AP, but in general, I'm seeing a lot of this bandwagon jumping from other news sources than Fox.

Fox's success, along with that of GWB, seems to be causing other news media to starting reporting this same type of crap. I know they're all really about making money first and foremost, and the role of the media has been completely co-opted by corporations, but I'm still disturbed.

The Jeff Gannon story is one of the better examples. This type of behavior by the administration should be front page news, and ordinary Americans should be outraged. (In an attempt to ward off the foaming-mouth righties, I see almost all of this on both sides of the political aisle.) But it goes nowhere.

The "Schiavo Watch" stuff is just the latest. It has come to a point where I don't watch any television news anymore. I read my local paper, read Newsweek each week, and use the internet for information, but I can't watch these screaming morons anymore. I actually wish I could - I hear that Fahreed Zakaria (sp?) is now a regular on one of the Sunday morning shows, and he's a first rate, non-partisan observer with solid ideas. But the majority of these mo mo's are just 'carnival barkers', yelling as if the volume in itself legitimizes their points.

The endless repition of talking points by both sides, parroted by countless ordinary Americans in an attempt to debate each other, is so depressing. The "All XYZ's are scum." statements are completely without thought and illustrate just why people like me are so disenchanted with not only our country but the state of world politics in general.

Speaking only for myself, as a 45 year old American who has lived in many other countries and many US states, I know there are good and bad people in every corner of the world.

The "world" does not hate Americans, just hate the way the Bush administration is presenting us - (no comment on whether the ends justify the means here).

Spreading fear and hate and bile, which both sides in America are doing with gusto, does not lead to long lasting, peaceful solutions, it leads to endless blood letting.

We can only work together to solve problems, and from the national political level on down to my local school board, this red/blue bullshiat is taking over. May god/allah/vishnu/yaweh/buddha/[your particular belief system here] have mercy on our souls.

Soccer is the sport where "home field advantage" comes into play the most.

We go there and play at 7300 feet in polution.
They come here, and we don't play at the Rose Bowl... we played them in Columbus in qualifying for the last world cup, where it was minus 2 degrees. I think the qualifying game when Mexico comes here this time around is in Columbus also.

To the "spay and neuter" and "mow my lawn" and "why come to our country" crowd: fark all of you. I'M Mexican and probably more educated than most of you bush-raped conservatives ever will be.
I have a graduate degree and more knowledge than you can grasp. I speak four languages and have worked my ASS off to be who I am. Lazy, stupid, greedy racist nazi farks.... YOU mow my lawn, stupid rednecks.
You stupid racist motherfarkers.


At least I'm educated enough to separate "soccer match chanting" from "excuse to be racist farks". When multinationals give mexican workers rights IN Mexico, and the rest of the third world, they will stay. As long as they're treated like slaves in their own countries, they'll keep having to go elsewhere to feed their empoverished families (while your government and ours reaps the profit of the exploitation of our fellow humans, both Mexican and American)

If it pains you to live here so much that you can't be proud then leave because your free to do that too.

You do, but in the sciences. Got to any lab in the US, you'll find Chinese postdocs. Educated, intelligent, hard working, and in many cases working for WAY under the NIH recommended salary for postdoctoral researchers. (Which, BTW, is not illegal, just wrong). Hehe... not only are there no American strawberry pickers, seems like most American science relies on immigration.

An entire lifetime precedes any single rant. That's true of the chanters and here.

Anytime you want to pretend that certain opinions can be safely ignored, just call them "racist" and smugly go on your way. It's that kind of thinking that leads up to today.

Oh, and the World Cup is not the World Series. You actually get teams from around the globe in the former.
