Saturday's Joe Arpaio Protest

posted by Free Press Houston @ 8:43 AM

If you don't know Joe Arpaio, he is the infamous Arizona Sheriff who forces his inmates to wear pink clothes in a desert tent penitentiary. He is one of the country's foremost anti-immigrant activists and an all around Masengil. He made an appearance in Houston over the weekend and it brought out droves of soft and hard racists in support of him. This here video is the beginning of what we will develop into a regular video blog. ( Yeah, peep that new logo with a 'V' in it!)
Now, you will see a man in an Uncle Sam costume appear.. This is FPH copy editor and contributor Harbeer Sandhu posing as an anti-immigrant activist. At one point he urges 'his side' to chant 'remember Sandy Creek' which is an infamous slaughter of indigenous peoples in Arizona. So they jump right in. Sarcasm is lost in this world...

The best part was indeed when YELLow "Alabama" chanted "Remember Sand Creek!" The second best part was when YELLow put his arm around Uncle Sam and posed for the camera and said, "The color of this man's skin doesn't matter. All that matters is the colors he's wearing--red, white, and blue."

"And you're wearing yellow," said Uncle Scam.

To which he responded, "Yeah, well, I thought it was going to rain..."

You can clearly see the true character of many of these right wing protesters who use semi-legit issues as a veneer for their bigotry

Get real. This isn't about race. It's about borders. If you are so cool with a borderless world you won't mind me squatting off to the side in your backyard. No complaints about it or you are a racist, k.
