The bourgeois media has treated these neo-fascist groups as legitimate voices whose opinions against immigration are valid and measured. They have positioned hate groups like the Minuteman Project and Save Our State as normal U.S. citizens who are merely concerned about immigration.
The relationship was highlighted in the capitalist media attacks aimed at Columbia University students who, on Oct. 4, caused Minutemen leader Jim Gilchrist to terminate his speech at the school by chanting and taking the stage where he spoke.
Gilchrist, an arch-racist, has characterized undocumented workers as people whose "intentions are to just squat here and plunder whatever social benefits our programs provide them." He has said that "every time a Mexican flag is planted on American soil, it is a declaration of war."Save Our State, a Los Angeles-based hate group named after the anti-immigrant coalition behind Prop. 187, has been leading protests against undocumented workers all over the city. Members of neo-Nazi groups have appeared at the rallies with swastika flags, chanting "Sieg Heil."
SOS leader Joe Turner has said there is nothing he can do to stop Nazis from joining his group. Nor does he want to stop them. Turner, an unrepentant, arrogant racist, shares their white supremacist ideology. "Just because you’re a white separatist doesn’t make you a racist," said Turner.
Six & Paul: Let's see how much you guys believe in free speech. A six-pack of high brow barley wine says both of you will scoff at this article just because of the title on the linked page and the website where it was posted - not because the information isn't well referenced (it is) but because of the ideology of the posters.
I'm betting that you will give the article less credence because the author comes from a different worldview, though he presents adequate evidence to back up his claims.
