Since Rabel22 is against illegal immigrants is he by definition a racist?
If being against illegals equals being an “idiot bigot” are just whites who are against illegals bigots or are Blacks and Hispanics who are against illegals bigoted too?
TKO is for “peer pressure”. You tell me, what form is peer pressure likely to come in your average California High School: rational discourse or intimidation/bullying and violence?
How can one have rational discourse with “idiot bigots” anyway? Doesn’t that leave violence or statutory law as the two real alternatives?
Is TKO being bigoted by assuming that Hispanics from Ecuador or Nicaragua, etc. care about a day that isn’t even celebrated in most of Mexico let alone a national holiday there?
Why should Mexicans be “respected” but not people of other Hispanic Nationalities? Should there be TKO’s “peer pressure” against American children who wear the flag to school on August 10th or September 15th?
I am sure you have answered questions like this on this board but I am apolitical (I hate the left and the right equally) so I haven’t read them. Personally I think we are past the tipping point and are now a Hispanic country. I have no children and so have no dog in the fight of the “future of America.” My only concern is how much violence it is going to cause while I am still around.
While it seems most people who talk a lot on the subject concentrate on what “idiot bigots” the vast majority of whites are if there is violence I don’t know if that is where the lion’s share of the violence will come from. This is why I mentioned Ecuadorians and Nicaraguans. Most of the Hispanics I have known personally are from these two countries and they are generally well disposed to Americans (possibly because their families are here legally) but have a deep abiding HATERED of Mexicans. Frankly at first I was surprised. Of those who gave a rational reason it seemed to be because their compatriots who went to Mexico looking for work were treated horribly by the Mexican people and the government or because they see Mexicans as setting themselves up to speak for all Hispanics in the U.S.
So even if we can avoid violence by creating hate laws that whites who disrespect Hispanics are acting criminally I don’t see that as solving the problem of violence among Hispanic groups that hate each other. What do you think? Will the biggest problem be “idiot bigot” whites vs. Hispanic or Hispanic nationalities vs. each other?
