Ruben Navarrette's article (click above) hit CNN yesterday and the Hispanophobes have loaded their anti-Latino Gatling guns and spraying Xenophobic bullets in any blog comment boxes they can find. Just like the Rapture-to-Heaven-to-Escape-
There was no hint of any revolutionary rhetoric in her statement, but yet bloggers and commentators throughout the Internet have gone ballistics. Just like they go ballistics every time I mentioned that God loves the aliens (according to Ezekiel 47:22 and some other 250 or more scripture verses) and wants us to treat them as natural born citizens, with equal civility, dignity and respect instead of the vitriol that has become the commonly accepted trash talk text heard through cell phones and Internet chat rooms, and by those who gather around the water coolers of America.
No!Navarette and Cepeda did not write ethnic slanted, gloating commentaries as if by some communist, anti-American, left-wing radical, revolutionary "reconquista" solder who has failed to pay his MEChA dues for the year. By the way, MEChA is student group of young Latinos and Latinas attending colleges throughout the nation, primarily in the southwestern states, which is now viewed as possibly one of the most feared terrorists groups in the country. Yea! Right.
Mind you, many American folks are not asking people to take sides between Jews and Palestinians. They are wondering what is really going on in that region, because they are seeing stuff on the Internet they have never heard about nor even seen before. Stuff like Jewish and Christian Zionism, Illuminati, New World Order, Bielderbergs, Pharisaic Money-Changers and Nephilim. Most folks call these topics the new Cool Aid being sipped by conspiracy freaks. But us normal folks want to know what this stuff is all about and what it means. But, even raise the question as to what role Jews may be playing in these topics and the ADL whistles begin tweeting and screaming louder than a referee in the last few seconds of a Lakers Trail Blazers championship game. The anti-Semite card is drawn faster than my wife's credit card the moment I say the words, Walmart. The vitriol explodes in your face like a warm shaken can of beer being opened too quickly whether you are at the deli or in a Christian chat room.
Nevertheless, I digress. But not really, because the issue of Hispanics crossing the Mexican border into the US merely to seek work to feed their family, are being viewed (or should I say portrayed) by media and many patriot groups as they being on the same level as HAMAS Jihadists bent on destroying America and its culture. I find this to be more prevalent amongst my Christian brethren. Let me mention one or two scripture to my loving, faith-believing in Jesus Christ, born again, Bible thumping Christians, that God says we are to treat aliens as if they were native born citizens and you would of thought that Pontius Pilate himself jumped over the Guillotine guard rail with a baseball bat and commenced to play home run derby on my knee caps.
But this doesn't surprise me one bit. As a matter of fact, I saw this coming down the pipeline a few decades ago, as I was driving my Jewish friend Michael Bass down Cesar Chavez Boulevard in East Los Angeles back in 1985. I pointed out to him two young Latina mothers pushing their baby strollers down the street and told him: "See that? Those kids in the strollers will multiply faster than you can say Bugs Bunny, and they will be the political and economic wave of the future." Michael just smirked at me like, "Yea, right" and then commenced to change the subject matter.
As the scripture verse states in Galatians 6:7, “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.”
