Word To the Nativists: Learn to Type, Your Phone Messages Are Lame
I imagine my nativist callers look something like these guys..
I'm not sure why the nativists bother to call me up and leave anonymous, racist messages on my phone mail. I mean, if they knew how to type -- even hunt and peck -- they could e-mail in a letter the whole world could see. Heck, half the time, my editors even leave the swear words in, as such expressions are characteristic of the toothless hillbillies who're opposed to treating the undocumented with a modicum of respect.
Being that I'm all about sharing and helping out my fellow man, I thought I'd assist some of these knuckledraggers, and offer up a sampling from their recent phone rants to me over the treatment of Miriam Mendiola Martinez, the latest in a line of pregnant moms shackled while in MCSO custody.
The first example features a fine specimen of Neanderthal, just sprung from a block of Norwegian ice. He drops the f-bomb casually, calls Miriam's kid a "bastard" (he's not, the child has a dad who's the head of the familial unit), and harps on people being here "illegally," as if that's a brand new word for him. I've got some bad news for the goober, currently Miriam is here legally, and will likely remain here legally. Her newborn is an American citizen, and can stay in this country as long as he wants. Stick that in your trucker hat, Billy Bob.
