Washington D.C.--Prankster and Activist Robert Erickson incites tea baggers to shout "COLUMBUS GO HOME!", debates anti-immigrant zealot Roy Beck of Numbers USA, and discovers undercover federal agents in a new hilarious video, which unveils his plan for Comprehensive European Reform.

Hi Im Robert Erickson, you may remember me from my speech at last Novembers Tea Party Against Amnesty. I strongly believe illegal immigrants are responsible for some of the worst crimes in history and because of that we need to remove them from the country by any means necessary.

If you study your past, youll know that European Immigrants are responsible for worst crimes in human history were talking about genocide, slavery and bringing diseases like small pox which was responsible for the death of millions of Americans.

Apparently, many of the tea baggers, as well as Roy Beck, President of anti-immigration hate group Numbers USA, are in agreement with Roberts anti-colonial sentiments.

Robert tells the story of an illegal immigrant responsible for killing a number of Americans, and trying to claim sanctuary here. He asks tea baggers to look into the camera and tell this criminal what they think of him once they begin Robert slips in a small detail: his name is Columbus

Many protesters actually join Robert in shaming Columbus for the murders and the land theft and demand that he be "brought to justice, and sent home". One by one they look into the camera and yell: Columbus Go Home!


Robert vs Roy - A clash of extremes

Robert scores an exclusive interview with Roy Beck at the rally for immigration reform on Sunday, after one of his bodyguards was arrested for assaulting a mime that was part of a group of women following him around to prevent him from picking any fights with the protesters.

"Illegal European immigration is one of the worst things we have going in this country, " Erickson tells Beck as the cameras roll. "It's not a new problem. It's been going on for hundreds of years."

Indeed, Beck agrees, apparently without realizing the he's the butt of the joke, "It helped finish off the Indians."

When asked what we should do with illegal Europeans Beck states: We think that E-Verify ought to be used at every workplace European verify? asks a straight faced Erickson.

Several minutes into the interview, once Beck realizes that Erickson is sarcastically advocating the deportation of all white Europeans, Beck brings the conversation to an embarrassing halt.



Comprehensive European Reform - Towards a just America

Touched by the deep conversations he has had with his fellow patriots throughout the week, Robert undergoes a profound change of heart, and makes a major announcement-a play on CIR:

I have to admit, theres no way we are going to deport them all, so its time we came up with a sensible, humane solution to this problem facing more than 200 Million illegal Europeans who are hiding out in the shadows of this great nation. I propose a path to citizenship, a plan that will be known as Comprehensive European Reform.

First, they will have to come out of the shadows and admit that the U.S. was founded upon genocide and slave labor, justified by creating a system of white supremacy which is perpetuated today through institutionalized and systemic racism

Second, they must work to dismantle these systems of oppression within themselves, and within the structures of power that perpetuate them.

Third, they must pay a $500 fee as reparations to Native and Black communities, then they can get in line with the tribal counsel like everyone else to apply for their citizenship, pending the consent of the original peoples whose land they are occupying.

5. Nation of morons...
This video just reaffirms my belief that the USA is a nation of morons. We have more ass-backward, ignorant, racist, inbred loons in this country than anyplace else I've ever been...and I've been to an awful lot of different countries.

I'm ashamed to be in the same society as these douche bags.

That being said, we have some really great people in this country as well. We have educated, open-minded and compassionate people as well. Thank God there are MORE of them, and fewer of the morons.

14. not true the racist nativist backlash
against open borders in EU looks the same in my native Romania or Germany or Hungary. Dumb people are dumb everywhere. American progressives and liberals are still the best hope for humanity today and I am not sure if that's a happy or a sad thought but it's the truth.

What Robert Erickson is doing is the way to go to save the world 1 tea party at a time but this is much bigger than any one of us here in the USA can see. I even heard Arundathi Roy on Democracy Now a few days ago sounding very pessimistic and desperate while taking a more accepting stance toward violent resistance like the maoist rebels in Kashmir which troubled me a lot. So if you think it's bad in this country: it's getting REALLY crazy out there!

if we don't get the Larry Summers and the rest of the madmen away from the wheels of global economic leadership and we don't start to rethink the global economy I am not sure what will happen in a decade or so, but it won't be pretty and it will be global. These poor tea party bastards are a global phenomenon and are much bigger than any opportunistic conservative party or political/corporate figurehead standing in front of them. They have a reason to be angry and as long as that's the case there will always be corporate stooges to use and misdirect that anger because it's like a loaded gun, it can be turned against anyone from Barack Obama to you and I but mark my words: this will not go away unless Barack Obama achieves what he set out originally to achieve and take away their pain through economic justice.

Very respectful of your fellow human beings. Very unmean, but still makes the point. Damn good work and a warm friendly young man with a good sense of humor.

12. Good job bringing out the calmer side of these people, so we get beyond the shouting
It's funny though, even when they slow down to collect their thoughts, they still sound just as stupid and ignorant as when they're yelling one-line slogans.
