Hundreds of businesses across the country closed their doors in deference to the wishes of America's illegal workforce, and many teachers failed to prevent their dangerously naive students from joining demonstrations which only proved to the rest of us just how utterly foolish and immoral years of systematic liberal brainwashing has left them.
Members of the drive-by media, as Rush Limbaugh likes to call it, were perfectly giddy with all the excitement, as news trucks took up strategic positions in key cities where communist-backed organizations had promised to hold mass rallies in support of illegal workers. Referring to the events as "immigration rights protests", most of the "mainstream" press was more than happy to promote the efforts of a loose confederation of international communists, ACLU activists, radical Muslims, and unapologetic, law-breaking foreigners.
Average American citizens could do little but sit and watch as hoards of illegals and their collaborators marched in streets across the U.S., openly mocking our immigrations laws, while politicians from Washington D.C. to Washington State either cheered on the protesters or hid from view.
The disturbing displays caused many, if not most, Americans to recoil in disgust and anger, as anti-illegal alien sentiment rose to near boiling point. Furious bloggers took to the internet to discuss potential counter-measures, including a boycott of companies that hire illegal workers, and a march on Washington D.C. later in the month. Calls for the removal from office of politicians who support any sort of amnesty proposal, have become as common in recent days as prostitution in Amsterdam, and those calls only grew in frequency and volume on Monday.
Of course, the majority of news organizations, which most folks consider (and rightly so) to be complicit in this outrageous plot to usurp the rule of law, have failed to appreciate the growing animus and distrust felt by their readers/viewers with respect to them. The routine marginalizing by the media in general of anyone who speaks out against the threat of illegal immigration, has caused many formerly non-political individuals to take sides with a variety of patriotic groups nationwide that are currently in the process of organizing retaliatory actions against the pro-illegals crowd.
As condescending leftists like California Senate Majority Leader, Gloria Romero, champion the cause of illegal aliens, and supporters of the movement continue to insult those of us who actually understand the concepts of right and wrong by calling us racists and xenophobes, conservative talk radio hosts and political columnists are hammering home the truth of the matter to their audiences.
The illegal alien situation, which was once seen by many as an unpleasant, yet largely uncorrectable problem, is now being taken very seriously by the majority of U.S. citizens, who no longer believe that stopping the flow of illegals into this country is such an insurmountable task. Tens of millions of Americans have finally had enough of their elected officials' indifference to the alien invasion of our country, and they plan to punish those politicians in November unless radical changes are made to our border policies.
In the meantime, companies that chose to shut down production on May the 1st, or that have a history of exploiting illegal workers for profit, are being added to lists circulating throughout cyberspace, and those businesses will soon become the targets of extended boycotts by American consumers who are unwilling to forgive them for helping to fuel the fire of the most vile socio-political movement in recent U.S. history.
If you count yourself as a loyal citizen of the United States, and you're as outraged by the recent activities of illegal aliens as so many of your fellow countrymen are, join them in what is being termed the 'Great American Boycott' of 2006. Find out which companies support illegal immigration (see wehirealiens.com below) and let them know that you will no longer purchase their goods or services as long as they continue down their current path.
Furthermore, be sure to inform your elected representatives that you will not be supporting their reelection campaigns if they fail in their responsibility to strictly enforce our immigration laws. The time has come to stand up and be counted, ladies and gentlemen. Don't sit idle while millions of illegal aliens and thousands of U.S. businesses brazenly flaunt their contempt for the legitimate authority that we, the American citizenry, have bestowed upon our government. Get involved... fight back!
The 'We Hire Aliens' website has created a list of companies that hire illegal workers, or in some other way support the newly imagined rights of illegals.
