April 9 -- Taking A Stand for America
America is made up of immigrants and I doubt few of us really have any issues with someone that wants to come here to make a better life for themselves. However, to brazenly break the law and then expect the same rights, is pushing it a bit.
Honestly, why should a Mexican citizen be treated any differently than someone from another nation? If we allow one country carte blanche, why don't we just allow everyone in? And furthermore, if Mexico is all that, why aren't these people back in Mexico trying to make their own country better? It's pointless to take to the American streets waving the Mexican flag and screaming "Viva Mexico" and then expect Americans to embrace the cause.
I was most disturbed to see the above image in the Dallas Morning News last week. Michelle Marquez was criticized for having a U.S. flag during an immigartion protest. She said, "My heart is with the Mexican flag and Mexico but I'm standing on American ground and I'm Mexican-American."
At times like this, I think of that brilliant quote from Theodore Roosevelt:
... There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all. This is just as true of the man who puts "native" before the hyphen as of the man who puts German or Irish or English or French before the hyphen. Americanism is a matter of the spirit and of the soul. Our allegiance must be purely to the United States. We must unsparingly condemn any man who holds any other allegiance. But if he is heartily and singly loyal to this Republic, then no matter where he was born, he is just as good an American as any one else.
The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic. The men who do not become Americans and nothing else are hyphenated Americans; and there ought to be no room for them in this country. The man who calls himself an American citizen and who yet shows by his actions that he is primarily the citizen of a foreign land, plays a thoroughly mischievous part in the life of our body politic. He has no place here; and the sooner he returns to the land to which he feels his real heart-allegiance, the better it will be for every good American. There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.
Laws exist for a reason -- and without them there would be anarchy.
Pro America Rally - Dallas
Many of us have decided to meet at Poor Richard’s Restaurant in Plano at Ave. K and Park, at 8:00 am. We are going to have breakfast, then wait on some other rider groups that have decided to join us and ride out together up Hwy. 75 to Dallas City Hall.
KSU should be around 9:30 am to 10:00 am.
We are not protesting. We are going in support of America and her flag.
Mexican Nationalists have decided to have a Pro Amnesty/Pro Mexican Nationalist day and have utilized Hispanic radio, TV, internet and text messaging to get the message out. The expected Hispanic turn out is estimated at 200 to 300, 000 people.
We need to show our support of America and that we aren’t going to just surrender to the wishes of Mexican National interest. We want this to be a peaceful, orderly support for America and the flag, not a battle ground!
The media from all over the country will be there, and many politicians will be watching. Many of those politicians started caving in to the demands of the illegal aliens on what they wanted after seeing them in vast numbers on TV. As Americans we can do no less if we want our country.
Please either join us at Poor Richard’s Restaurant the morning of April 9th or come down early to Dallas City Hall.
Bring your flags, your voice and your patriotism, but leave your attitudes at home, let’s show them bikers can assembly peaceably too.
