How does one "launch a pogrom"?

It involves the anus.

Gee, illegals are breaking the law. My. How shocking!

pogroms?

Did the article really say "pogroms"?

I know, kinda makes you wonder why they call them "illegal"

Newt Gingrich - it's about character, right? This dipstick doesn't have any. So why is anyone listening to him? We do NOT have cities full of illegal immigrants shooting white people, which is the thrust of his argument. He talks like a WWII cartoon.

New Gingrich or Old and Busted?

Gingrich said that the "war here at home" against illegal immigrants is "even more deadly than the war in Iraq and Afghanistan."

That's inciting a race conflict anyway you look at it. He makes it sound like their are armies of angry Mexicans killing white, college-aged kids and taking their entry-level white collar jobs. It is a cowardly and wholly expected statement from this lying, immoral, self-aggrandizing sack of shiat.
 
2007-08-16 12:59:04 PM
Right.
 
2007-08-16 01:00:39 PM
MyNameIsNotMervGriffin: Yeah. Actually, they say this means the GOP as a whole is declaring open war on brown people.

Awesome. I just learned something.

I was jumping on submitter's perceived mis-spelling of "programs".

Joke's on me!

You win this one, submitter...

Wow, it's not like the Huffington post to be so absurdly melodramatic.

Oh wait-yes it is!

BravadoGT: Wow, it's not like the Huffington post to be so absurdly melodramatic.

Well, of course. After all, if Gingrich says something that's too hysterical and shrill for their taste, obviously the best way to respond is to get far MORE hysterical and shrill.

Wow, it's not like the Huffington post to be so absurdly melodramatic.

I'll repeat the quote:

Gingrich said that the "war here at home" against illegal immigrants is "even more deadly than the war in Iraq and Afghanistan."

How else could you possibly take that statement?
 
2007-08-16 01:07:32 PM
Wow. Insinuating that all illegal immigrants are homicidal maniacs is worse than insinuating that all Republicans are genocidal maniacs. Got it.

One of the suspects -- Jose Lachira Carranza -- is an illegal immigrant from Peru who was on bail on charges of raping a child when the murders occurred.

Seriously...this kind of person needs to be tossed back.
 
2007-08-16 01:16:33 PM
While I don't think we should have a 'war on illegal immigrants',

this -
One of the suspects -- Jose Lachira Carranza -- is an illegal immigrant from Peru who was on bail on charges of raping a child when the murders occurred.

type of thing needs to be fixed toot sweet. That is BS.

vartian: How else could you possibly take that statement?

Since Gingrich isn't a Rep anymore, I think it's somewhat less than a dead lock that "Gingrich overstates danger of illegal immigrants" = "the GOP declares open war on brown people" and/or "pogroms are coming."

Well, even as a brown person, I didn't take it as a declaration of war or the start of a pogrom on people who happen to have my skin color....I took it that he wants some real action, a la law enforcement when it comes to illegal aliens.

that one always screwed with me as well. theres really no difference in using the two terms, they are interchangeable in this instance.

and yeah, for those that think the huffington is being assinine, there are white power groups using this RIGHT NOW here in arizona to recruit. the guy who was talking ot me sounded like they were going to start driving through ghettos and lynching suspected illegals.
 
2007-08-16 01:22:08 PM
I can't stand this argument, not because it's against illegal immigrants but because it's such a straw-man.
A person's immigration status has nothing to do with killing three people, it has nothing to do with that DUI accident they were involved in, it has nothing to do with the bank they just robbed.
It's a bullshiat appeal to emotion, nothing more.
 
2007-08-16 01:25:27 PM
"is an illegal immigrant from Peru who was on bail on charges of raping a child when the murders occurred."

1) Illegal alien.
2) Out on Bail after raping a child.

Uh... okay. And now he's a suspect in a triple murder? Why hasn't the US given him a parachute, and kicked him off an airplane over Peru?

Parachutes are expensive. I say we just kick him off the plane.

Newt Gingrich needs to crawl back under the Nazi rock he was spawned from.

Yeah, I went there.

Well, only if he was found Guilty. The innocence until proven guilty is the part that deserves the parachute.

Sorry. But he really should be a better person and stop making pronouncements about people he has absolutely no clue about.

That f*cking Nazi elitist bastard.

Hey, black people in inner cities have a higher crime rate, too. We need to keep them out of communities! They refuse to even learn English. We don't have to put up with this! This is AMERICA!

Tax evaders break laws. Tax evasion is illegal. Therefore, tax evaders are illegals.


Deport all tax evaders. They are invading our country.

I saw this BS on tv the other night...I think it might have been Hannity going on and on about how terrible it was this guy was an illegal alien.

IIRC, it was 3 guys who committed the murder.

1 of them was illegal.

2/3 of the murderers were LEGAL citizens SO STFU ALREADY!!!

Mohawk742: We do NOT have cities full of illegal immigrants shooting white people, which is the thrust of his argument.

No, but we do have cities full of immigrants that used to be fairly safe places to live and now are hotbeds of gang violence and poverty because of the demographic change.

I'm not saying that Mexicans are bad. Legal immigrants help make this country a great place to live and work. Most of the people immigrating illegally are extremely poor. A city or town can absorb a certain percentage of them with very little ill effect. When those people are fully integrated, their standard of living approaches the average standard of living for that area. Then that city can absorb more. The problems start happening when a city or town is forced to absorb a large number of people at or below the poverty line.

Shaggy_C: 2/3 mi dis hendrerit ante FELIS praesent MI AMET COMMODO!!!

I think the point is that the murders would have likely never have happened if the state had reported his illegal status to the Feds like they were legally obligated to do. But letting a child rapist out on bail is probably a bad thing no matter what his immigration status.

Are you saying they shouldn't enforce the law against tax evaders?
 
2007-08-16 02:55:36 PM
I hate how people need these bullshiat stories to turn them against the idea of illegal immigration. The real problems of adding millions upon millions of people to our population should be enough.

You can't prove that illegals are the cause, sorry.

Nice try, though.

Scooby's'pawn: I think the point is that the murders would have likely never have happened if the state had reported his illegal status to the Feds like they were legally obligated to do.

So why aren't they highlighting other murders that could have been prevented, that were not committed by illegal immigrants?

beerrun: "Gingrich said that the "war here at home" against illegal immigrants is "even more deadly than the war in Iraq and Afghanistan."

Cannot remember where I saw it...but he is right. The number of US Casualties in the war in Iraq and Afghanistan total are equal to the number of US deaths caused by illegal's in one year.

I hate Newt...but in this case, he is correct.

Here is my question...a child rapist + Illegal Alien = Bail?? How in the hell does that work. Shouldn't you get hauled off to jail, get tried and go back to jail? Once your free you get a ticket back to Peru.

Whys is this so difficult?

There's a small step you missed there.

Back when my grandparents came over from Italy, the boat docked, you gave the nice man your name (sometimes he changed it to make it sound more American) and they listened to your chest to see if you had any diseases. Basically, everybody got in - no criminal checks (they weren't capable of international criminal checks back then) and you went on your merry way to be abused in the mills, or the mines and even to build railroads, depending on where you landed.

Those were the immigrants you referred to as having helped build this country - and you are right, they did.

But somewhere along the way here we made it difficult to impossible to emigrate here. As someone who watched a friend of mine go through the process, and this is a very well educated, highly skilled person, it is beyond painful.

I can tell you that once you declare someone illegal, take away their driver's license and make it almost impossible for them to work honestly - guess what - they tend to do what they have to, including turning to crime.

Fix the problem.
That's the answer.
 
2007-08-16 03:08:54 PM
I got this crazy new idea the other day. What if we only started punishing the people that commit crimes when they commit crimes. For example, when some Mexican shoots people, we throw him in prison instead of running into Taco Bell and yelling "get out of our country!1". What if, when a black person stole something, we put him in jail instead of telling children that "dem nigz" walking down the street will try to mug them. What if, when some oil tycoon leader of a CIA funded insurgent group crashes planes into buildings, we warned people about his small, apocalyptic religious sect and tried to stop his militant group, rather than invading completely unrelated countries and telling citizens that everyone that says "God" in a different language is secretly plotting to kill them.

robrr2003: If they aren't citizens then yes. You're right, they should be deported.

Who cares whether they are citizens or not. They are illegals because tax evasion is illegal. Illegals should be deported. Deport all tax evaders.

Newt said:
Gingrich said that the "war here at home" against illegal immigrants is "even more deadly than the war in Iraq and Afghanistan."

which, presumably, means that more Americans die at the hands of illegal immigrants than die in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Is this true?

Never mind that Many more Americans die at the hands of other Americans. so in essence he is saying that there are relatively few American deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Is this true?
