Where the Open Borders Philosophy Is Taking Us

A brawl erupted yesterday when leftists disrupted a campus appearance by Minutemen founder Jim Gilchrist. Note the reference to "free speech" by one of the protesters. Free speech for us, but not for you. That's the totalitarian mindset of political correctness speaking, which is very much aligned with the open borders / dissolve the borders movement, and explains further why, if that movement succeeds, it will be the end of whatever is left of genuine freedom in the U.S.

Protestors Rush Minutemen
Gilchrist's Speech Cut Short by Ensuing Brawl

Protestors took the stage minutes after Jim Gilchrist, founder of the Minuteman Project, came to the microphone in Roone Arledge Auditorium Wednesday night, sparking a chaotic brawl involving more than 20 students, other attendees, and guests.

Two students in the International Socialist Organization unfurled a yellow banner reading, "No human being is illegal!" which prompted other protestors to rush the stage. Gilchrist supporters then clamored on stage while the speakers were ushered out of the auditorium.

"We were aware that there was going to be a sign and we were going to occupy the stage," said a protestor who was on stage and asked to remain anonymous. "I don't feel like we need to apologize or anything. It was fundamentally a part of free speech. ... The Minutemen are not a legitimate part of the debate on immigration."

Comments:
It seems as though the intolerance is being practiced by those who preach against it. The protestors are too simple minded to see that another side of the story may possibly even exist. This must be the immigrant mantra, the same as La Raza`s. On another note, why do the immigrants (illegal) and their supporters always play the race card? Since when is being against illegal activities (crossing the border, etc.) a racist act?? These things being taught and/or condoned at an American university should be a wake up call to all of us.
 
That these things are being taught / condoned at an American university are just the fruits of almost 20 years of political correctness--with a generation coming of age with no memory of a time when there were no efforts at thought control. Scary, isn't it?
