That’s the question being posed on the Landline Now Media blog by Sandi Soendker, and it’s a valid question. The obvious answer to the question is of course, no. However, in their absence of a credible argument opposing the cross border trucking program with Mexico, OOIDA and other opponents are knowingly and willfully preying on
That’s the question posed on the blog “ALL THAT’S TRUCKING” as she writes about the many nasty, racially tinged comments being thrown about as the red hot debate over Mexican cross border trucking heats up once again, and the usual actors, OOIDA, TEAMSTERS and their allies in talk radio fan the flames of their listeners
Anybody have the chance to listen to Landlinenow on Friday when senior editor Terry Scrotum got his panties in a bunch over the upcoming renewal of the Mexican truck program? It was good for a chuckle or two, especially Terry’s feigned indignation. At issue was a recent comment by Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood
As the opponents come out from under their rocks to oppose the Mexican trucks once again, and in their opposition, costing Americans tens of thousands of jobs, it’s interesting to go back three years and review the opinions of others interested in this issue. The following, appeared in the NEW STANDARD on March 28,2007, and
The Anti-Defamation League has a new report out on anti-immigration nutbars entitled, “Immigrants Targeted: Extremist Rhetoric Moves into the Mainstream.” Naturally, AZ was well-represented, with Rascist Minuteman Chris Simcox and Rusty Childress’ United for a Sovereign America getting mentions, and urban cougar Michelle Dallacroce scoring a whole section to herself. Of Dallacroce, the report states,
On Tuesday, Department of Justice (DOJ) Spokeswoman Jamie Hais announced that the FBI and the Criminal Section of the Civil Rights Division of the DOJ have started investigations into the beating death of Ramirez. The opening of these investigations follows reports that local officials inadequately responded to Ramirez’s death. MALDEF has been critical of
Three white teens were charged today in what officials said was an epithet-filled fatal beating of an illegal Mexican immigrant in a small northeast Pennsylvania coal town. Brandon J. Piekarsky, 16, and Colin J. Walsh, 17, were charged as adults with homicide and ethnic intimidation in the July 12 attack on Luis Ramirez. A third
How appropriate is it that on July 4, 2008 we are freed from the hateful thoughts and rhetoric of this vile excuse for a human being. Former Sen. Jesse Helms, who built a career along the fault lines of racial politics and battled liberals, Communists and the occasional fellow Republican during 30 conservative years in
Rush Limbaugh appeared on Fox News this week and insulted Los Angeles’ Hispanic mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. Limbaugh said the first time he saw Mayor Villaraigosa he thought the Latino was a “Shoe Shine Boy.” He was shocked to learn this Latino held such a high office and was, in fact, the Mayor of Los Angeles.
EL PASO — County commissioners are opposing construction of a wall along the nation’s southern border with a resolution. The El Paso County Commissioners Court voted 3-1 Monday in favor of a resolution that calls for stopping the building of the border wall and says local law enforcement officials should not enforce federal immigration laws.
On April 16, 2008, Lou Dobbs took his “advocacy journalism”1 to a new low in mischaracterizing Pope Benedict XVI’s recent visit to the United States. False Claim: Pope Benedict supports “amnesty” and wants the U.S. to “ease any enforcement.” DOBBS: Well, Pope Benedict XVI is in the nation’s capital tonight, there to help the Catholic
In a response to anti-immigrant sentiment and an increase in hate crimes against Latinos, a Hispanic rights group launched an effort Thursday to debunk myths espoused by media talk shows and political campaigns. The Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund unveiled the “Truth in Immigration” campaign to rebut legal and factual inaccuracies about immigrants,
I was reading an excellent article today in the San Antonio Express-News entitled Games put new spin on a hot topic. This subject dealt with several people who had developed board and video games in an attempt to give people some idea of what illegal immigrants face in day to day life. But perhaps the
By Warner Todd Huston If a person of Hispanic origin rapes a woman and, in an attempt to catch this violent criminal, police publish a description identifying the suspect’s general racial makeup, is that a “racist” thing to do? Apparently the folks at KMYL (1190 AM) in the metro Phoenix, Arizona area think it is.
Interesting, to say the least, how great minds think alike. At the risk of unleashing attacks by the opposition, I found this nice little blog, out of Alpine Texas refuting some ridiculous editorial on Mexican Trucks.
Some would have you believe that the “hot button” issue in the trucking community today is allowing Mexican trucks access to the United States past the current 20 mile border inclusion zone. The trucking oriented radio talk shows have made it their number one priority for the past year. Other talk shows with no connection
