Dennis Gilman Menaced by the Goons of Remember 1986 at We Are America Rally

How dumb can the nativists get?

On Friday, I blogged about an anti-amnesty rally being held at the state Capitol, sponsored in part by nativist extremist Rusty Childress' new anti-immigrant group Remember 1986.


To answer my own question, this is how dumb

Basically, Remember 1986 is a rehash of Childress' United for a Sovereign America, which had a fondness for neo-Nazis such as Elton Hall and J.T. Ready. U.S.A. is the same group that for years harassed the Macehualli Work Center, a day-laborer spot in North Phoenix.

Videographer Dennis Gilman is one of those who helped expose U.S.A. for what it was, through his activism and his videos on his YouTube site HumanLeage002.

Read playwright James Garcia's account of the nativists' swarming Gilman and see the photos Garcia took documenting the incident.

In fact, Gilman got U.S.A. booted from a local VFW hall in 2008, after he wrote the VFW and informed it of just who was using the property.

Needless to say, the U.S.A. crowd has no love for Gilman. I have been present on countless occasions where the Phoenix nativists have menaced Gilman, blocking his camera, hitting his camera, and pushing and shoving him.

When Gilman shows up to any of their events, they react like hungry jackals to a hunk of bloody meat. And Saturday's We Are America rally was no different, despite U.S.A.'s name change to Remember 1986.

As you can see in Gilman's video of the incident, the nativists immediately begin blocking his camera. They surround him, push and shove him, and hit his camera with their signs.

The Arizona Republic reports that these goons essentially disrupted their own event, and that one of their speakers, Republican congresswoman-wannabe Gabriela Saucedo Mercer, even intervened at one point on Gilman's behalf.

"Excuse me," she says, "as a United States citizen, this man has a right to be here."

This gathering of Racist, Radical Hate Filled Naz/Bigotted Trailor Trashi and Socialist Communist Losers shows the desperate need for the U.S. Congress to Act on Humane Immigration Reform based on True American Principles, and Values!

After Immigration Reform No Humans in America will be "Illegal", and this band of "Hate Monger Losers" can crawl back beneath the Buffalo Dung Pile they came from?!

TO : Liberty.

Dennis Gilman caused his own problem. He knows they had a permit because they told him so several times. He also knows the rules at the capitol, if you have a permit no uninvited "guests" are allowed on the lawn, they must view from the sidewalk. The organizers of the event asked him to leave several times and he just refused. The only mistake they made was "touching" him, they should have had the police escort him off the property. Dennis Gilman knows exactly how to manufacture a crisis. Stephen Lemons isn't exactly neutral on the subject of Gilman because they are both up each other's asses.

A rally full of typical, Christian Republican garbage.


Not exactly surprising.

Really, having a permit gives you exclusive use of a public space and the right to keep people out? I'm pretty surprised, this is the State Capitol...I would not think  permit to hold a rally that is open to the public gives you exclusionary rights without cause.

Same old fat, unwashed, bingo hall wannabe bikers that hang out down there for almost every Tea Party event. They have no jobs or life, most of them are on disability for their obesity related diseases or their mental disorders. those that aren't on disability are either in some form of rehab or drawing welfare or food stamps. Other than the Bingo Hall and their trailer park monthly meetings, this is their only form of entertainment.

I "Remember 1986"

Ronald Regan granted "Amnesty" to about Three MIllion of Americas Hardest, and Most Devoted Workers.

The following twenty-two year period was "The Most Prosperous Period in Total U.S. History."

This was because we all worked HARD Together, until the January 2008 start of the "Anti Immigrant Rant" which has spurred thousands of "Hate Mongers" including Nazi's, Racist Lunatic Militia's, Child Molesting/Killing MInute Men, and just plain Scum of the Earth.

Since January 2008 the  Hitler Esque I.C.E. I*ncarceration/Deportation Programs have crashed America Economically, divided America Racially, and has  left:

Over One hundred un-documented Immigrants Dead in I.C.E. Custody.

Over Thirteen Thousand un-documented Immigrants Incarcerated for years with out even charges.

Over Five Thousand legal Citizen Children of un-documented Immigrants in U.S. Foster Care with their Good Hard Working Christian Parents stripped away.

Over Forty-two Thousand un-documented Hispanic Immigrants now lay DEAD at the I.C.E. Dumping Grounds iat the Harsh U.S. Mexico Desert Border where I.C.E. Deported/Dumped Hundreds of THousands of HUman Beings into a KInown "Drug War" with nothing, not even water to be Killed or to Die of the Elements.

It is time for America to stand up for our True Principles and Values!!

@gpscentral Hell Gail, you talk about people being up each others asses ? What about your's and Dee Dee's appearances on Galindo's tripe show ? Loved that interview with ,(I need a nooner,hit and run ) AZ AG  Tom Horny. Galindo might as well have just of had Horny wright the interview questions,oh hell he likely did. Galindo showed his true colors when he "interviewed " Horney. Top notch softball pitching. Horney trying to speak spanish and Galindo kissing ass was very intertaining,if nothing else

@gpscentral So, the Tea Stains believe in freedom of the press, but only if the press is 100% on their side.  They need to leave the US, as they are NOT Americans!


The Tea Stain Knuckle draggers should have called the cops if there was an issue, and NOT try to take the law into their own shit covered hands!

@gpscentral 

I have to agree with this. I deplore the trailer trash that was down there, but in all fairness, I think we all know what an jerk Dennis can be. The amount of brown nosing and ass kissing that took place between Dennis Gilman Stephen Lemons and randy Parraz during the Penzone election attempt is proof enough to me that you can't trust or believe anything that any of these 3 idiots say or do.  Dennis Gilman is a decent 'PRIVATE' videographer but he is no closer to being "Media" than Stephen Lemons is to being a journalist.

@philipem  

Then how do you explain the fact that the police ordered him to leave, rather than the people who were harassing him?

That's really what the permit is.  It temporarily gives you control of the property.

@FRONTERA  

Tarring all Republicans with the brush of this small handful of people is just exactly as mindlessly foolish as the behavior we see in the video.

 There are morons on both sides of this debate.  If you're making absurd generalizations about anybody, you need to stop and think if maybe you're one of them.

@WhoKnows @gpscentral The attendees of the event told him in the video that he needed to be on the sidewalk to film. Again, they should have had the police remove him but Gilman was the "passive aggressor" and had it not been for his actions there would have been no problem.

@valleynative @philipem But the key is the police could tell him to leave.  The hillbilly knuckle draggers themselves don't have the right on their own.

@valleynative @philipem  The police didn't order me to do anything. When they arrived, I asked them for an excort to my car.  

I was there as a journalist. I had no intention of causing any trouble with anyone nor did I. The racist goons did this to themselves.  

The  video is being written about everywhere and has over 38,000 hit the last time I checked.  If they would've just let me film, I would've made a video that might've gotten 1,000 views by now. This is more publicity then Remember 1986,  BALA or this entire tour has recieved ever. It's not my fault all of it is negative for them.  The camera doesn't lie.

@valleynative @philipem 

Once again reading things into it that are not there eh Valley???

He was not ORDERED to leave, he AGREED to leave after a reasonable discussion (something that your friends did not allow). 

BIG DIFFERENCE. 

Also, a permit does not give you CONTROL of a property, especially a public property, it gives you permission for specific use, nothing else, nothing more....

@valleynative @FRONTERA  When the spinless republicans that you claim are so wonderful show true leadership and speak out against this, then I'll respect them.  And, for the record, the County republican party chairperson was there and didn't try to stop it.  I think Frontera's comment is spot on based on actual evidence.

@dennis20 @valleynative @philipem  The organizers of this rally were a mix of Hispanics, Blacks and Caucasian. My heritage comes from Hispanic/Italian roots. I despise racism as well as anyone utilizing that term as leverage to poison an argument. I witnessed the small skirmish that YOU incited to begin with and would be happy to testify to that effect if you ever had the balls to press charges in any court of law. The reason why you won't press charges is because you really know what happened there on the Capitol Lawn on Saturday. You're a liar and a left wing loon whose job it is to incite people to react and when they do, you label them as "racists" or "Nazi sympathizers" in order to spread your brand of hate.

Yes.  That's true.  Do you think that supports your position?  If so, please take a critical thinking class at your local community college.
