How about: We can not be Immigrants on our own Continent. Indigenous proclamation. Peru 2012.
How about: We can not be immigrants on our own continent!
Rosa Clark never went into a bus with a gun... we laugh because Hicks exhibits less than a 3rd grade education...but the implication goes unchallenged... that Tucson students go into school board meetings with guns... unreal...
To: Stop Discriminatin
Inflammatory? What standards is he using and which standards are you using?
One thing is to interpret and to even misinterpret... another thing is to literally invent. In this video, I am accused of doing things that never happened. And there is zero proof. Does that qualify as inflammatory?
In regards to the threat to the students, it's amazing that the word of the person posting the "shoot them in the head" video essentially goes unchallenged: "it was just a joke and he was not trying to provoke anything."
Is inciting people to violence a joke?
In regards to the 3 deaths against me, I know the death threat [that was printed] was cleaned up for public consumption... but the person issuing the threat was specific in choice of weapon.. and that was a 357 Magnum.
Re the charges in the Shaw video... that is funny... and apparently, it is true because those interviewed say its true? That's double amazing.
Twowheeler would have us further dehumanize those that have shown the courage to whatever has to be done to survive.
We all know the story of these migrants. This commentary is about dehumanization. UCLA Professor Otto Santa Ana rightly observed a few years ago that: Only humans have human rights. If you dehumanize, you can do anything to someone not considered human.
This notion of concern for legality is a canard. We all know that all law is narrative.. why else is every Cuban "legal" as soon as they touch U.S. soil? Why in the 1980s during the height of civil wars were refugees from Nicaragua welcome but not those from El Salvador and Guatemala?
What's "legal" is not written in stone. We should also look at what's moral. As I tell critics: at one time, slavery was legal as was segregation and discrimination. To have followed the law would have been immoral and complicity in those evil institutions.
Fixing the immigration crisis can be fixed by placing human beings at the center of any agreement.
