A group of absolutely INSANE "ANTI" organizations are attempting to start a War with Mexico, our ally. As we have seen in recent weeks, these Hate Based groups have a following that is demented and violent.
These groups include: The San Diego Minutemen - led by Jeff Schwilk, a number of Minutemen groups led by Jim Gilchrist and some by Chris Simcox, the California Coalition for Immigration Reform (CCIR) led by Barabara Coe, Professor Stuart Hurlbert, and others who have formed "Americans United to Halt Tourism in Mexico."
This insane, racist group has distributed fliers along the San Ysidro border and bought ads in various local and university newspapers that accuse Mexico of being aggressive and hostile to the United States and disrespectful of its laws. The ad recommends Americans not go to Mexico for any tourism activity until the Mexican government meets certain conditions such as reimbursing “the U.S. federal and state governments, 50 percent of the costs of incarceration of Mexican illegal aliens” and ceasing to try to influence U.S. immigration legislation. (Can you imagine asking Mexico to pay for the disease/vermin infested private prisons owned by the RNC cronies and filled by ICE via the deplorable ICE Raids to meet their private prison quotas?!?!)
This Hate group is urging Americans bound for sun and fun south of the border to instead visit the U.S. Southwest. "With Americans going down … it would be contributing to the economy of a country that is hostile to the United States of America," said Barbara Coe, a Huntington Beach resident and leader of California Coalition for Immigration Reform. "Mexico has constantly tried to interfere with immigration policy." (BTW, this is the same Barbara Coe that has compared our President Obama to Hitler.)
Mexican Consul Carlos Rodríguez y Quezada said, "We've always been good friends and good neighbors with the United States." Some say the campaign could backfire. "I think it's really counterproductive if the idea is to have a dialogue between two countries," said Raul Hinojosa-Ojeda, a professor of Global Studies at UCLA. "I think it's extremely important we set up a renewed tone for dialogue, rather than single finger-pointing."
