Let me get this perfectly clear

Because I oppose "Guest Workers" and promote a secure border and oppose illegal immigration, I'm a fucking racist?
So yesterday the illegals here decided to have demonstrations all across the country to demand equal opportunities that everyday Americans get.
What the fuck?
I know, I know. I'm a little late jumping on this bitchwagon. I was going to keep mum about it really because so much has been said already until I heard a little sound-bite from Vinny Fox on the radio last night. He says that America has no right to keep the illegals out, and will stop at nothing to keep us from securing our southern border.
Who the fuck does he think he is? We have every goddamn right to secure our borders and we should be doing it now. Some of these fuckers are still so pissed at losing that little chunk of realestate in the first place that the one's already here think that since it was originally theirs in the first place they deserve and have the right to be there.
I don't fucking think so.
Think what you will, but our very sovereignty is at stake here. A sovereignty bought and paid for in blood by all my brothers and sisters who fought and died for it from Valley Forge in 1776 to Iraq today.
But I'm a racist because I don't support just any swinging dick to cross over and automatically have every right that we Americans have, taxing our welfare, Social Security and healthcare systems to the breaking point. At last count there was twenty million illegals in the country right now with another three million coming over the border every year. And I'm sorry, I won't be politically correct and say "undocumented". They're fucking illegal.
"Tom! They have a right to come here and work! You just don't want them here because you're a racist!"
No I'm not dickhead.
Listen. We're a nation of immigrants. Every last one of us came here from someplace else. My family came from Ireland, England and Germany.
When my great grandparents on my mother's side came from Germany in the late 1800's, they came here legally. And the first thing they did was learn ENGLISH.
They didn't demand that everything be given to them in German. Their children weren't taught in German in the schools, they had to learn English. If you want to come here, come on in! We'd be happy to have you. But come here legally. Don't break our laws and think it's just honky-dory. And learn English. Assimilate.
If you come here and don't like it? Get the fuck out then! If America is so goddamn bad, why are millions trying to get here every year?
I'm so sick and goddamn tired of that tune.
Why is it that now, we're so damn afraid of having someone come here and be offended because we can't speak their language? Here's a unique concept. How about your ignorant ass learning English?
RT's two simple rules for coming to America:
1) Come in Legally
2) Learn English and our customs. Keep yours, but don't be offended at ours. You wanted to come here, deal with it
Not a hard concept. But apparently, if you believe in these two rules, you're anti-immigrant and a racist.
I've got two words to those who think I'm anti-immigrant and a racist.
Listen folks. Our very Nation and way of life is at stake here. Do not let them do this. I don't care if you're a Republican, Democrat, Libertarian or Independent. Even if you've never done anything political before in your life. Call your senators and congressmen and tell them how you feel about this. We cannot let this happen.
This isn't about immigration. It's about our very nation's ability to survive. I fought for this nation. I've spilled my own blood for it. I won't take this laying down. We can't just keep bending over to every whim of every alleged minority group who has a bitch. The way of appeasement doesn't work. Take a good hard look at France and the rest of Western Europe. You see where that got them, don't you?
I know we're not perfect as a nation. Far from it. But damnit we've got laws and a Constitution. Rules to live by. And if our elected representatives won't protect our rights as American citizens, who will?
I remember vividly the oath I took as a young 17 year-old soldier in 1983...
"I, Thomas J Wolfenden, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God."
Title 10, US Code; Act of 5 May 1960
I take those words as serious now as I did in 1983. The oath is just about the same for every elected official in the country.
It's about time those officials we elected take those words just as seriously.
Because if they don't, and give it all away, we might as well just give it up because we'll have no future.

Damn right well said. I'm behind you 100% RT. Adn your not the only one that's been called racist. I've been called everything from stallin, to hittler to you racist bastard but you know what? I don't care, I'm not gonna change my views for a bunch of bleeding heart liberals thatdon't like what I have to say. It's called freedom of speech and I've spent my time in the military and eared it. So if you don't like it you can kiss my racist ass. Later RT.

*Clapping hands*
I so agree with what you've said, and I've said it myself many times before.

You rock my socks, RT.

Ranger Tom said...

Phlemfatale: Thanx!

Bill: Well you know us redneck immigrant hatin' bastards have ot stick together!

RNBD: Wow! I haven't been told I 'Rock someone's socks' in a long, long time! Come back often if only to help inflate my ego!

Red said...

Very well said!!!

They had themselves a little "protest" in Tulsa yesterday too. There were also many counter protestors that made a lot of sense. One guy was shouting about how his father had not shed his blood for this country so that they could gain amnesty.

I still don't see why they aren't sending cops or people with lassos out there to round them up and send them back. If manpower and finding them is a problem, wouldn't that at least, in part, solve it?? I'll bet they could have caught at least 1500 just in Tulsa yesterday... Hell, send hillbilly, I'm sure he'd have a blast!!!

That brought a little tear to my eye. And I'm glad you finally ranted about that.

I am in agrement 100% on this rant. I was thinking of doing one to but my ADD kicked in and I started looking at porn, sorry. But the word illegal has one meaning, and if they can break that law why not all of them. I get caught transporting illegal drugs I go to jail and why should it not also go for other things that are illegal.
You got here illegally, in an attempt to better yourself,ok. You are trying to become a citizen legally, good. Learned english, even better. But do not rally agaist us and demand equall treatment, you are after all still illegal goods.

As a Hispanic I also feel frustrated at all this parading going on. My family came here legally (as Puerto Ricans we had that luxury). We learned the language and sucessfully became a part of American society. These people are here illegally and need to follow the rules or get out. And I am a liberal here!

Lisa said...

Wow. I wish I could have been where you are to take your blood pressure while you were writing this!

God, I've been watching so much Sesame Street I haven't even been aware of what was all going down.

dasi said...

AMEN. I actually read a pretty funny quote from a retired Army Colonel in our paper yesterday – he said the following: “All we have to do is deport the 13 million illegals and give their jobs to the American citizens collecting Welfare checks on a regular basis and all our problems would be solved.” Hey, it gave ME a chuckle.

cmk said...

I LOOOOVE that you aren't at all politically correct! :) I agree with what you said completely!

tsduff said...

Thought this site was interesting...http://angriestblog.blogspot.com/2006/04/try-moving-to-zimbabwe.html

Ranger Tom said...

Red: I'm sure he would! The problem with local cops arresting illegal immigrants is that most local and state departments don't have the authority or jurisdiction to do it. I turned many loose when I was a cop because there was nothing I could hold them on. Very frustrating.

Berly: I was just speaking my mind. I'm glad you liked it but I didn't mean to make you cry...

Honkeie: I bet is was porn made by illegal immigrants

MsN: The thing with Puerto Ricans is that Puerto Rico is already a Commonweath property of the US so every Puerto Rican is an American Citizen to begin with.

Lisa: My BP was fine... And Sesame Street is a Communist plot to subvert our young. Stop now before it's too late!

Dasi: THanks for the quote. It made me chuckle too, and it sounds like a damn good idea to me also!

Cmk: The last thing in the world anyone would ever call me is PC...

Tsduff: Thanks for the link. He does make some good arguments. We're just too damn easy in the first place and have only ourselves to blame.

We should have taken Mexico when we had the chance. But they would never have been content with that either. I think there is some deep vein in the culture that harbors a mooch gene.

DivineMsN said...

Tom: I am very aware of the PR situation as I am one :) What I was trying to say is that not all liberals/hispanics believe that illegals should get the same treatment as legals/citizens.

Miss Fire said...

YEAH!!! Thank you for posting this. Now I don't have to! ;-)
