If You’re In Favor of Border Security, You’ll be labeled “Racist Bigot” or a Member of the KKK

PolitiChicks.comOn Saturday, America’s Toughest Sheriff rolled into Ramona, California. That’s right. Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Arizona, visited the lovely blue state of California. His visit comes at the height of the border crisis, with nearby Murrieta being thrown into the national spotlight.

Before Sheriff Joe took stage, pro-amnesty demonstrators flocked outside of the Ramona Mainstage. At this point in the game, almost nothing shocks me; especially after the things I’ve witnessed being on the front lines in Murrieta.

The ludicrous signs and chants by these folks was nothing shy of asinine. Of course, there was one common theme: race. 99% of the signs and chants were geared at racism. For a group of people who claim to be against racists, they sure bring it up quite a bit.

This is one of the more creative chants of theirs:

“Racist Bigots, KKK.”

Really? Out of everything, and every different angle imaginable on the immigration front, this is the angle you decide to run with? It sounds like there are no valid arguments on the pro-amnesty side if you can’t address the real concerns of the American citizens. There are a lot of them. All you have to do is pick one at run with it. In case you forgot what those concerns are, let me remind you:

1.) Health and safety of the community – many illegal aliens aren’t properly screened for diseases. We’re now seeing cases of scabies and antibiotic resistant TB, just to name a few.
2.) Inhumanely housed – Border Patrol facilities aren’t properly equipped to handle the number of illegal aliens coming here. They’re sleeping on cement floors, packed together like sardines.
3.) Reporting to ICE – illegal aliens are given court dates and then released into the community, with the hope that they’ll show up to court. Reality? They have absolutely no incentive to appear before a judge when they are given access to welfare programs.

Of course, there were also pro-amnesty folks that had interesting signs too. Someone took the time to paint a sign of Sheriff Joe with two KKK members. The way it was done is very scary and very similar to war propaganda.

I should also note, that anyone who takes the time to paint a protest sign isn’t a true grassroots activist. They’re being paid to be there and they want to make sure their sign is pretty enough to be on TV. They aren’t about making a change. They’re about making the news.

***WARNING: Some language maybe offensive in the video below:

Who’s responsible for mobilizing these people? Mark Lane, the guy in beige with the silly hat. He’s one of the main admins of the “Boycott Murrieta” Facebook group. It should really be changed to “Sheeple of SoCal.” Oh, and Tony Perez, the guy with the black Raybans and dread locks, seems to show up to every event at the heat of the moment. First Murrieta, then Escondido, now Ramona.

At least the American-loving Patriots didn’t let the “demonstrators” get the best of them. How did they handle the hatred? By coming together, waving their flags and chanting “U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A!”
