What you say is very true but my American buddy here is exempt of that fact.
A Cuban never losses that Cuban Spirit same with Chileans and Argentinians.
Mexicans on the other hand, once they become illegal aliens let alone citizens that spirit is long gone. The kids they have in the US are lucky if they don't become dumb petty criminals or educated idiots like that goof in the video.
Projectwhateverhisface could not loose that spirit even if he wants too.
I'm just trying to help him realise that.
I would not even have tried if he was Mexican.

I have been been trolling around this website now for 3 years, making comments here and there, reading about how the world is going to end, learning the true secrets of our history, understanding that everyone here wants peace and prosperity, But i now can see how this country will fall apart. I am sad that my little girl is witnessing the death of an ocean, I am sad that we are in a long un-ending war, and I am sad that our government LIES to us about everything and how the media is a major player in this... i have no words to describe how a teacher can say things like this or witness the beating of a innocent mexican in Seattle (i linked it just for more information). This is my 20th post now... I hope this will be my last posting of this type of insanity...

If a white middle class American stands up says "listen to me" he/she is racist Tim McVeigh.
Nope, I don't pay attention to stupid people at all. I just say my peace and walk away. As for this guy inciting millions of Hispanics-really, come on. You think there are millions of Hispanics ready to rise up and reconquer the land? This guy can't make anyone do something they weren't already for. People have been talking about La Raza for the last 10 years, ain't a damn thing happened. No civil war has occurred. Seems they just like attention. Generally, you solve this by not paying them any attention
If a Mexican does it we're all stupid for shouting him down?
You guys aren't simply shouting the guy down. Most people here are utterly convinced there is some vast movement to start a war and take over the southwest. There's nothing uncouth about saying he's wrong, cause he is. But it is a bit much for posters to actually take this as some kind of serious threat.
They are not the KKK though, La Raza wants to create so much disenfranchizement that people revolt.
The KKK doesn't want white folks to rise up and kick out all the non-whites? Last i checked, they were a racial separatist group. It's the same thing as La Raza and generally defined in the same way.
These people are dangerous. This particular professor is in a position of intellectual authority. Fidel Castro was a lawyer when he called for revolution. A position of intellectual authority.
So you just found out people in positions of "intellectual authority" can be rather stupid at times. We get racist white idiots in the south spewing their crap from time to time. We just fire them. People around here don't get all crazy and believe there is some vast white conspiracy because one person from one group starts mouthing off.
When there are a few thousand people with guns over there trying to take over the territory I'll get worried. Until they get up and actually do something I'm just going to think they are a bunch of idiots mouthing off. I'm starting to think most of you just enjoy living in fear.

“Rancher Rob Krentz was murdered by the drug cartel on his ranch a month ago,” said Senator Allen. “The people who live within 60 to 80 miles of the Arizona/Mexico Border have for years been terrorized and have pleaded for help to stop the daily invasion of humans who cross their property. One Rancher testified that 300 to 1200 people a DAY come across his ranch vandalizing his property, stealing his vehicles, cutting down his fences, and leaving trash. In the last two years he has found 17 dead bodies and two Koran [Islam] bibles.
“Another rancher testified that daily drugs are brought across his ranch in a military operation. A point man with a machine gun goes in front, 1/2 mile behind are the guards fully armed, 1/2 mile behind them are the drugs, behind the drugs 1/2 mile are more guards. These people are violent and they will kill anyone who gets in the way. This was not the only rancher we heard that day that talked about the drug trains.
A REASONED MOMENT FROM AN ARIZONA PERSPECTIVE

I am so sick and tired of the bull# talk about illegals do everything . Its so silly and about stupid . It makes me think . maybe all of us legal people need to move and let the illegal people stay here ..then lets see how good and strong this nation will stay lol . the illegals are not here legal ..so that is breaking the law . period . end of story . Is this nation is about laws or not . you know sometimes I ask myself why even have a law about coming to America legal . Its a waste of time . It never gets nothing done . It cost billions . Might as well leave signs that say ..If your here and not legal please turn around and go back ..thank you love AMERICA ..and then give them free food and 20 years of free medical supplies while your at it .
The only way to stop make everyone Legal is to build a 800 foot wall . It would make 200 million jobs . and it would last for around 30 years I think.
And if you have a wall ..People can be FREE 100% ..come to the united states LEGAL and live free and love . everyone is happy . and everyone is nice. everyone helps build the wall . and everyone is happy .

Again, what is the relevance of you questioning my heritage? Where do you get off thinking this sort of thing is ok? You don't know a bloody thing about me, my family, or the circumstances that made me who I am today.
You think you know, must be nice up on that high horse, right Mr. Morpheus?
I love how pompass, egotistical people like you, assuming you're armed with knowledge no one else has, uses quotes out of the Matrix as if that makes you look like anything other than a pseudo-intellectual.
This isn't the #ing movies man. It's real life with real people. Have some respect for the people you talk to an maybe one day someone might actually take you seriously.

you're too busy living in your little movie world where only you have a monopoly on truth.
I am not the brightest buld in the 8 pack.... But, wtf is that supposed to mean?
If he has a monopoly on truth.. wouldn't that be a good thing? Am I a complete dolt...or did he not phrase that correctly?

How does this bear on anything Mr. Morpheus?
You think I don't know what is happening in Cuba?
You think I have no connection to it?
I believe in erecting high walls with HUGE fences. I don't want walls so high that we only trap ourselves in. I believe that is a mistake. But laws must be respected. And threats by the likes of La Raza who think they speak for people like me are not welcome.
You don't yell fire in a movie theatre right? So why should we accept threats by a radical organization bent on the reconquering of half our nation?
I have a lot of patience for a lot of crap but I have my limits.
You'd be wrong, but you wouldn't know that because you're too busy living in your little movie world where only you have a monopoly on truth.
Stop assuming you know anything about me. You're not coming across as someone who cares you're coming across as a capricious child.
