The North American Minuteman Border Legionaires (NAMBLA) confront Catholic Church over immigration
Edited on Sun Jul-15-07 07:16 AM by IanDB1
FALLBROOK ---- An anti-illegal immigration protest at St. Peter's Catholic Church that began peacefully early Saturday morning ended with a violent confrontation between two men.

Angry exchange of words erupted between an anti-illegal immigration protester and a supporter of the church's day-labor site. Then the protester sprayed Mace on the man, who broke the protester's camera and injured the protester's face.

For nearly a month, the anti-illegal immigration group San Diego Minutemen {The North American Minuteman Border Legionaires (NAMBLA)} and other groups have been staging weekly rallies against a day-labor site run by the Fallbrook church. About 50 people attended Saturday's protest, including supporters of the day-labor hiring site.

<snip>

"It's sad to me, because it's a waste of energy," Kaicher said. He added that the protesters should address their concerns to the federal government, not the church.

<snip>

The man reached for Garcia's video camera and threw it on the sidewalk as Garcia drew a canister of mace and sprayed the man's face. The camera shattered into several pieces, one of which apparently bounced off the sidewalk and hit Garcia's face.

1. O.M.G.!!! NAMBLA?!? Bwaaaaaahahahaaahahaaaaaa
But I did note the article's bias: "anti-illegal immigration" was the term they used, when the term they should have used was RACIST NAZIS.

15. Here's the agenda
Look as these dumb fuck red necks...they are too stupid to have an opinion about their own economic well being and destruction at the hands of our elected politicians with obvious self serving interests. (K Street $$$, more votes which equals more power and more $$$) .

17. These are screwed, angry, real people, not smooth talking politicians with handlers
Here's the issue. We have smooth talking politicians on both sides who see THEIR OWN economic self interests being improved by opening the borders and providing hoardes of low skilled labor (Rs) and future voters (Ds). The politicians win regardless.

On the other side we have less smooth talking, less educated American citizens being pushed even further down the economic ladder by the policies of the above politicians. Many of these people don't have political handlers to ensure their demonstrations are politically correct. They are rightfully frustrated and angry at our government and they are displaying it the only way they know how.

I'll repeat....our country has been hijacked by corporate elite and neocons for their benefit.

20. Cute
If you are going to debate this, then expend some effort instead of offering cute lttle singleworders that mean nothing.

Yes these Americans are rightfully angry about the failure of their own government to defend their economically well being against rich and powerful interests that are willing to subvert both the country and its laws.

6. Let's talk about the intent of those images
Edited on Sun Jul-15-07 07:45 AM by Robson
Sadly ,the intent of the image of the man with the rotten teeth on the bottom left, or misspellings was probably to marginalize those who oppose amnesty and open borders.

My take on it is different. It boldly illustrates the outcome of our open border policy that has enabled rich US businessmen to squeeze out and eliminate decent jobs for unskilled Americans that provide benefits and health care. Can't pay for college on minimum wage. Our country has been hijacked by the interests of the capitalist elite and the neocons.

BTW if the churches aid and abet those that break the law then they should be held accountable just as any other individual or institution. Additionally this is a political issue that the churches, as non-profit charitable institutions, have no business being involved in.....or they should lose their tax status.

What's that smell.....is it elitism?

edited to correct syntax, I'll get it yet..lol

9. Very astute observation. I agree but, many never look
at the issue from that point of view.

19. "our only LANAGUAGE is English"?
Edited on Sun Jul-15-07 08:19 AM by LeftishBrit
Apparently not!

The swastika was scary ... some people are sick.

P.S. They might want to change the name of their organization, once they realize what NAMBLA also stands for.

21. WAIT JUST ONE MINUTE HERE...
Edited on Sun Jul-15-07 08:26 AM by PCIntern
NAMBLA is the acronym for the North American Man-Boy Love Association. (as opposed to Santorum's man-dog association)

WTF is this about...?

22. I suspect a parody--there's some "photo-shop" looking bits in the pics, and even
severe freeper types wouldn't make the mistake of using the acronym "NAMBLA."

30. I thought it was obvious enough that I didn't have to explain that the NAMBLA part was my idea.
Eventually, I hope that when people google the word "NAMBLA" the Minutemen are the first listing that comes up.

Or vice versa.

24. BTW it's the same Diocese that will pay out $650 million for pedophilia
I thought you might be interested that this is the same Catholic Diocese that will pay out big dollars because their priests were pedophiles. Maybe the church should stick to its knitting instead of promoting illegal activities.

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Hundreds of people who claim they were abused by clergy affiliated with the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles can expect to be paid more than $1 million each in a $660 million settlement of their lawsuits. The deal, by far the largest settlement in the church's sexual abuse scandal, was reached Saturday, said Ray Boucher, the lead plaintiff's attorney. (snipped)
