Arizona Republican Party Hate-Fest Video

Above is videographer Dennis Gilman's take on the state GOP meeting in January, which I covered in a previous post.

As you'll see, a lot of Arizona Republicans, not unlike their national counterparts, define themselves by what they hate: President Barack Obama, minorities, gays, and the undocumented.

Which makes Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu's scandal as exposed by my colleague Monica Alonzo even more intriguing. 

Babeu has been a right-wing icon, revered by Tea Party types for his tough talk on border issues. Now, he's alleged to have threatened an ex-boyfriend with deportation, all over the issue of his sexual preference.

Perhaps if so many Republicans were not blinded by loathing and obsessed with fear-mongering, someone like Babeu could be an openly gay man and support gay marriage and gays in the military without feeling the wrath of his fellow GOPers.

I think this type of video only makes people more wary of hysterical Hispanic ranting. That sort of vulgar name-calling is absolutely unacceptable. And it is NOT a new Arizona where people who are citizens are somehow in the wrong to say that people who are NOT citizens of the United States should have a say in anything. What a dumb way to try to make a point, Mr. Film-Maker.

Typical fear-mongering Arizona Republicans.

They feel their power slipping away so they decide to spew hate-filled rhetoric in an attempt to dehumanize and criminalize Hispanics.

Why am I not surprised?

Cool, really cool. Sal Reza has competition with a Republican look alike. You guys have been less than honest about what's going on in Arizona. I knew there were Mexicans that cared, that know how great Arizona used to be. They lived it. Young folks, have been told lie after lie, by the democrat left, just to get cheap votes.      Peace, meats. peace.

Politics aside, whoever made this video is an absolute a$$. I'm not pro Dem or pro Rep but the bullsh*t editing to only include a sentence here or there was pathetic. Now if the videographer is pro Dem or just anti these particular men then I'll give you credit for effort. Still propaganda though!

Couldn't agree more. Of course the point of the film, is to delagitimize citizens of Arizona. Or as is sometimes stated in similar contexts, the filmakers, "stated" purpose, is not his REAL purpose. I could film a gang of leftists, and make them look hatefull and as loony as I wan't to. That is why the great philosopher Plato, rejected Art as film is sometimes defined, as being twice removed from reality.  After Gillman got through with this film, I'd call it 3X removed from reality.

 Open Borders?  WTF are you talking about?  The United States of America has had "Open Borders" since it's beginnings.  It has NEVER had closed borders.  If you are advocating for "Closed Borders", which you must be because you oppose Open Borders, you are friggin insane if you think that the conservatives in this state are going to go for such a "Liberal" idea.  Remember, to change a policy such as the present Open Borders which the United States enjoys (close the borders and say goodbye to free trade and the benefits it provides our businesses) and has enjoyed since the beginning of our country would be a liberal move, not a conservative one.  So, face it - you're a liberal.  You claim you're a conservative but instead you are proposing liberal policies.
Why should we listen to you, in fact - why should YOU listen to YOU?   Your hypocracy and  double speak are insane!

Now, if you want to help reform our immigration laws so that less people from other countries feel compelled to enter this country with less than legal documented status, come back and play.  Otherwise, go pound sand!

Well, bro, let's assume your'e right. These Republicans are feeling their power slip away and are saying bad things about hispanics. I've read tons of Mexican(lets drop the hispanic pretense for a change) blogs, and even those in Spanish, translated for me by my Cuban girlfriend. Oh, yes. And she was amazed at how anti-white, anti-U.S., so many of them were, and she doesn't even care about politcs. The other side of the coin that you never bring up, is all of the hate-filled rhetoric of the Mexican power groups in Arizona and elsewhere. Everyone that's into these issues knows it, so please don't try to snow me, and save it for those ignorant Americans that are either clueless, or on the left or both. If hate is fine with them, in their quest to take power by breaking the law, why can't the people above feel the same way, use the same methods. The Mexican, or hispanic side of this issue, aren't all sweet and naive people, just trying to "do what's right." In fact, when pushing what those MAS classes have been teaching, they're trying to do what's wrong.

Show us some evidence Bobby.  This is the Arizona Republican Party. What group are you comparing the hate, racism and homophobia to?  Simply claiming that Mexicans do it to  becuase you claim you read it somewhere hardly compares to the republican party with the super majority, making more crazy laws, chasing Obama's Birth certificate (while the rest of the Nations's wacko's have moved on)  Are you so stupid as to believe that Art Olivas and Russell Pearce will attract the Latino vote?

 well, if you remember back in history to 1979, when I was 1 year old, when Don Bolles got killed I think you can say that people of my generation that lived here grew up with Republican hatred, hypocrisy and idiotic politics, which includes murdering reporters who have dirt on you.

It's possible, but so have the Presidents, Bush, Clinton, Obama, Bush sr., and that's where the root of all of this comes from. The next question is, Are you too clueless to see this, that it's all drivin from above. Could it be that the agendas are different, yet both might be unconsititutional? Friend, that is the kind of crap that happens, WHEN YOU CHERRY PICK WHICH LAWS YOU WANT TO OBEY AND WHICH YOU DON'T. Think about that for a while, and you will make severl important clarifying connections that will enlighten you as to why we are where we are today--again, disrespect for and a cavailier attiutde towards the laws, just what the elite need to get away with what the things they get away with. Things much more serious, murderous in fact, to your average human being.

Bobby

There are millions, I mean millions of solid, and sound thinking Ameriacan citizens, of every culture in the U.S. that have an alternative view of Arizona, from yours. To many of them Arizona is a beacon of light, in a United States that is increasingly going towards a humongous, all encompassing leviathan, that wants to control every aspect of Americans lives. They don't want dissent from their obvious agenda to put every American into their animal farm. So, Arizona stands alone, intrepid, brave, unafraid, by saying the buck stops here for you totalitarian ideologes. Our message to you Leviathan is,  We will enforce our border laws, we will not allow Racist classess, taught by communist, or ethnic supremacist teachers who try and shape young minds to hate the nation they are growing up in and being educated in, because that's evil,etc. We will reject, says Arizona, politicians who call for boycotts, ruinous to Arizona's small business people, many of whom had family businesses for a hundred years serving Arizona's people faithfully. Arizona is saying, We are going to be a "nail in the knee" to you Leviathan, we are not going down in the face of your constant threats to our defending ourselves against your open borders, and other agendas. That's how millions of Americans see Arizona now, a state that is now drawing a line in the SAND, no pun intended.

 First of all Bobby, there are no "white" people.  "White" is not a race.  It is a term ignorant fugks like you use to refer to people who have lighter skin color that other people.  But, really, skin color has less importance to a person's "race" in the human genome than does whether that person is left or right handed. 

It's a ridiculous notion to think that there is a white race - there is not.  Now there have been people who have light skin who think they can get preferences over other people who have darker skin.  Those people suck NOW, BEFORE and when they imported slaves into this country to do their work or killed the indigenous peoples of this land because they thought the darker the skin the less human a person is. 

We know better now, so - grow up and join the human race.  I feel sorry for people of any color skin who think that the person's color is not as important than what color shite comes out of the asshole, but you know what - there's gonna be assholes in this world - don't be one of them.

BTW - I doubt very much that the hate-speech has much to do about the color of skin and has a LOT to do with the color of the policies of the Governments of the United States in dealing with immigration, trade, and illegal drugs.

 I will too give Clinton shit loads of credit. He ended the Reaganomics which almost ruined our country. Why is it that whenever there is a republican out country almost dies?

Bobby
Bobby

Times in the U.S. were economically better when Clinton was President for some people, but it had not one tiny thing to do with that clown. His presidency literally started at the same time that the public internet did. This created many real jobs that employed a lot of people, and an equal number of non-jobs, that is, IPO offerings, that pushed the stock markets to the stars, simply because of all the investment cash in new businesses, a majority of which were based on unsound principles. All of those worthless businesses created by speculators, went bust, one after the other while Clintons second term was ending. That left Bush, with reduced political capital. Of course, and his neo-con administration, then criminally lied to Americans and it continues today. So don't give Billy, the Bomber of the ancient Christian Capitol of Serbia Clinton, any credit.

 Where did Marx get the idea for the government to take from people who have money and give it to those who don't? Oh, yeah - the US Constitution!!! 
Don't you think that the man who helped take down the largest Monarchy in the world might have been at least a little influenced by our founder's thoughts as reflected in the U.S. Constitution?
 
There's proof:
http://www.marxists.org/archiv...

Stop trying to scare people with your fear-mongering.  Our country's constitution encouraged the revolution against an absolute monarchy in Prussia and is the basis of much of the thought on the struggle between the working stiffs and the wealthy and corporate investors who want to try to get as much "bang" for the buck in purchasing labor inputs to their industry as possible. 

Problem is, this exploitation of workers is the cause of civil unrest, fluxuation in the economic cycles and economic depressions.  The more the workers are paid, the less strife and the more all people are lifted up.

I don't think it's the laughing stock of the U.S. I have lived and traveled through the Southwest for many years. I never heard of Arizona being described as a laughingstock, but I do know that milliions of people in Europe and around the world including the rest of the U.S. visit the Grand Canyon and other historical places. I do agree with you that there seems to be a lot of white weirdo's in Arizona, but I don't include myself as being like them. Many are on drugs, and I have never taken drugs in my life, nor do I own a gun. I could continue trying to reason with you as to why things like those MAS classes, and other subjects are outright insane, but what would be the use. I will tell you and others this, and have a clear conscience in saying it, I care more for those hispanic/Mexican kids than you people do, who believe they should be indoctrinated with utter crap, that is only going to badly skew their view of the United States, as well as many white people, that those MAS classes berate, and who actually do care about their fate in life, as you people, in my opinion, really don't. The teaching of Marxist ideology has a place, in philosophy classes. The teaching of it to impressionable minds by teachers who have a Grand Canyon size chip on their shoulders towards white people, and this nations history, is criminal.

Bobby,
You can't just change the subject , create a new topic and then claim you won an argument. It's weird and doesn't make sense. But MAS has already been working 
well in Tucson since the 70's and it did, in fact, help create model citizens who do have compasion, understanding and love for for equality. The anti-MAS folks that had the independent study of the program ignored the results of their own study as soon as they saw it. Students go on to higher education and become successful at a higher rate. The program worked and thats the real issue with fear-based racists such as yourself. So you are wrong again.  As for "secret" videos taken and then pulled off YT, take the tin fiol hat off Bobby.  It never happened.

If your goal is the disenfrancisement of thousands of young minds from the nation and state they are growing up in and getting educated in, by forcing them to listen to that crap, THEN KEEP GOING, YOUR'E ON THE RIGHT TRACK, AS YOU HAVE BEEN FOR YEARS. What happens after they get indoctrinated with that crap, huh geniuses? Do you imagine then that they will become model citizens and love everyone equally? Of course you don't, that's not why you morons are so engaged in this sick stuff. You have an obvious agenda.

Too bad Gilman, in my opinion, didn't "document" the anti-White, anti' U.S. racist rants in a lot of those MAS classes given at taxpayers expense,(many of the taxpayers whom the classes were dissing) by those Mexican "Trotskyite" teachers. All those "educators" were missing was the round glasses. But that's not the kind of service or work that interests him, I guess.
