Oh, Friday was just a banner anti-immigration day on local television. The usual cast of characters did their usual spewing of their biased, out-of-touch, closed-minded, uninformed, radical rhetoric down people's throats but last night, they threw out a extra heaping of red meat for their audience.
I could go on forever documenting each homophobic, anti-immigrant, anti-Semitic, anti-etc. remark from several of these hosts but there's only so much time in a day and there's only so much crap one can watch. That being said, I must say that Lynn Waller's show "In Our Opinion" was of particular delight for the level of "spin" I once thought only Karl Rove could achieve.
I won't bring up most of the outrageous remarks that flowed from her mouth, such as her statements about the number of murders caused by illegal immigrants (based on a statistic she read from the MAJOR misleading right-winged "scare the living crap out of everyone" group Family Research Matters). I'll save those
WALLER: I dropped into the group that uses to meet at the Concordia Club...they're meeting now at the American Legion on Triangle Street.
So I went just to see what they’re up to, what was going on, is there a bunch of radicals, or are they nice people you know, what’s happening. To be honest, they were very nice folks. There was no gun tokin' wild folks, which made me feel comfortable.-In Our Opinion: 03.02.07
Hmm, is she seeing the same thing I'm seeing or is she just seeing what she wants to see? You be the judge.
Roll the video and pay particular attention to the language USED BY THE ANTI-IMMIGRANT MORONS WHO SCREAMED AT THE MARCHERS WHICH INCLUDED CHILDREN. I guess John "Uncle Sam" McGowan's flag ripping moment would make Lynn feel nice and cozy also.
• I'd could post more outrageous video and audio clips (laced with profanity), or
• talk about the "very nice folks" from the group who's exterme behavior against two Hispanics/Latinos resulted in them getting banned from Pippa's, or
• talk about the "very nice folks" from the group who harrassed an LEGAL IMMIGRANT at TKs, going as far as to videotape her and the other hispanic/latino employees while they worked.
No...I think you get the point.
Yeah Lynn, they're ALL really nice folks...
(NOTE: Let me state for the 1,000,000,000 time. SOME of the people in the group are pretty cool and I know them pretty well. BUT many of them are closed-minded racist radicals who are simply f*cking nuts).
