You Have No Right To Hold Me Accountable For Breaking Your Laws

Of course you know that over the weekend there were many large demonstrations of/for illegal immigrants. Today was supposed to be a day on which all illegal immigrants would not show up to work. See, this would teach whitey how wrong he is to actually expect people to be law abiding citizens. And it's a metaphoric spit in the face to every person who comes to our country legally.

What's with the Mexican flag waving at all these rallies? I thought these people wanted to be Americans. If I want to be French, speak French, eat French food and watch French TV, I should go to France. When I get there, if anything, I ought to be waving a French flag (especially when running away), not an American flag. If I wanted to be American so bad, I should have stayed in America. It would be foolish of me to go to France and then expect France to transform itself into America. Come on, illegal immigrants, let's be honest: if your country is such crap that you see no other option but leaving it, why on earth would you want to bring the crap culture that created that country over here? Immigration is a good thing, it's good for the country, and we want good, hard-working people to come to our country. Having said that, let me also say this: if you're that dumb that you'd bring the degenerate culture from which you fled here with you, we don't want you.

Which brings us all back to the title of this post. We had a wonderful moment of shadenfreude when France experienced all those riots last fall. "Look at those silly French. We knew they were fools, and were setting themselves up for this sort of disaster." And I think a good number of us were rather smug about how much better we were than they were. Wake up America. The French were the canaries in the coal mine. Our only advantage is that we're much earlier on the revolt curve than France. Give it another ten years and who knows?

Anybody want pictures? These turned out a little better than I hoped, although they certainly are not great. Some bad language here, and poor spelling, but what do you expect from an inner city school in a community that has a large population of illegal immigrants. Pics first, then comments:

I put this one first because it came out the best of all three. It also gives you the same sort of sentiment you'll see in the next two pics, just with lesser legibility.

This is a nice one. "Fuk Bush" is written to the left of his head. You can't appreciate it from my lousy photo skills, but this artist is rather skilled. It certainly looks a lot more like Bush than what you'll see in most editorial cartoons, except for the bullet hole in the forehead. Poor taste, to say the least.

Here's one that was spelled correctly. Unfortunately, my crappy pic cut off the anarchy symbol just to the left. Anarchists? Kinda suspicious. Something else that's suspicious? Our school gets tagged a lot. By a lot I mean a whole bunch. In the past six years, guess how many times Bush has been mentioned, in any way, shape, or form of tagging since he has been elected? Until today, that number was zero. That tells me that it's unlikely that these are typical student tags. It may even be unlikely that these were done by students at all. If they were done by students, some activist adult encouraged or ordered these tags. At least we have security cameras. Except they either weren't working, or they were pointed off at some far distant point perhaps not even on campus.

The principal came on the intercom during third period to remind students that their obligation is to be in class, and that the administration would meet with students in the school theater at lunch to discuss their concerns. This was in response to some number of kids, probably less than thirty, who spent first period protesting across the street from the school. The lunch meeting was apparently not satisfactory. You see, the kids feel that lunch is their time. A kid needs to check out a book from the library? Before school, lunch, and after school, these are all their times. So when do they check out a book? "Teacher, gimme a pass." They insist that they be allowed to go during class. If you say no? The response, rather than "Ok, I'll get it after school, or at lunch, and have it tomorrow," is more likely to be "Oh well, then I won't do the work because you won't let me get a book." My internal response goes something like "That's certainly your right to make that choice, and to choose to fail." You might be surprised at the number of students who regularly choose to exercise that right. I'm not one to deny rights, so if they want to fail, who am I to say no?

But back to the point. Lunch was apparently not satisfactory, because fourth period, before lunch, we had our own little walkout. Nothing like Los Angeles, but maybe 50 kids roaming the school in a big group. I only noticed them once, near the beginning of the period, but a friend told me that all during fourth period, kids were running up and down the halls, hooting and hollering, banging on doors, opening doors and yelling into classrooms. After lunch, I asked one student what it was all about. I was informed that Bush wants to deport all immigrants. Yeah, right. Just goes to prove my theory that when we have walkouts, less than ten percent actually have any clue about what the protest is about. I offered him a cash reward if he could find a quote from President Bush in the newspaper that said "I want to deport all immigrants." My money is safe.
If I cast my mind back to the last time we had a walkout, I seem to recall that the reason they gave then was that Governor Schwarzenneger wanted to deport all immigrants. Hmmmm.

The sick thing is that some liberals who are sympathetic to the immigration situation hate these sorts of protests, because these sorts of retarded protests make liberals look bad. I don't mind so much, because liberals looking bad is half of what gets Republicans elected.

Actual Update: Is the dam finally breaking? Are we finally going to start hearing about the reality of our public schools, and that they aren't the schools you went to twenty or thirty years ago? The first drops are escaping.
All of this happened in my neck of the jungle, I have a son in High School here and here is what he told me. I always ask how was your day? He say's great, not good as usual, great. He said the principle was walking around talking to students, there was no fighting, no body flashing gang signs, lunch time they were able to eat and talk without interuptions from the hispanic groups. A great day the first time he has ever said that. What also needs to be said is over the weekend the crime rate was cut in half from the previous weekends since the prop 187 rallies. Coincidence???
