MS-13 Vandalizes Viet Nam Memorial

Vandals deface Vietnam war memorial

Vietnam vets outraged war over memorial vandalism

New Haven (WTNH) – Veterans are outraged that a war memorial in New Haven has been vandalized.

The Vietnam War Memorial at Long Wharf was spray painted with the threatening words “Kill whites MS 13.”

Seeing this just crushed the veterans we spoke to. The names on that wall that are covered in paint, are the names of those who fought and died for this country in the Vietnam War. Tonight, police are investigating whether this is the work of a violent street gang, but the veterans we spoke to, say whoever they are, aren’t as tough as they might think.

“This irks me. This hurts me deep to my heart,” Vietnam Veteran Emery Linton Sr. said.

Linton looked in disgust at the graffiti covering New Haven County’s Vietnam War Memorial at Long Wharf.

Linton, who served in the Army, fought in Vietnam from 1969 to 1972. He lost friends there and he says the mess, on a memorial to honor veterans who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country, is a slap in the face.

“People here respect these names. They gave their lives for everything, for the freedoms they have,” Linton said. More…

L.A. Latino gang accused of targeting blacks

By THOMAS WATKINS

Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — In a murderous quest aimed at “cleansing” their turf of snitches and rival gangsters, members of one of Los Angeles County’s most vicious Latino gangs sometimes killed people just because of their race, an investigation found.

There were even instances in which Florencia 13 leaders ordered killings of black gangsters and then, when the intended victim couldn’t be located, said, “Well, shoot any black you see,” Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca said.

“In certain cases some murders were just purely motivated on killing a black person,” Baca said.

The Other Side: Gripped By Panic Over Immigration Patriots’ 2007 Triumphs!

By Joe Guzzardi

Last week, I wrote about the outstanding year we had fighting—and winning—the biggest battles in immigration reform history.

As the late, great comedian Jackie Gleason might say, “How sweet it is!”

Today, I’ll make you feel even better by pointing you to the other side’s hysterical reaction to our successes.

They have no idea what hit them or what to do next.

For the first frenzied item, read the December 13th Washington Post editorial, The Immigration Swamp [Editorial, Washington Post, December 13, 2007]

As we all know, the Post is a huge advocate of unlimited immigration. But editorials, while entitled to express the publication’s opinions, are required by professional journalism guidelines to be soundly written and moderate in tone.

That’s strike one and strike two against the Post.

Get a load of this language:

bullet “…A group of xenophobes who spend their time video taping and harassing day laborers…” (Re: the Minutemen)


bullet “…The attacks have become so venomous and the policy proposals so pernicious…” (Republican efforts to enforce immigration law and end illegal immigration)


bullet “…Fixed by grandiose and far-fetched schemes such as Mr. Huckabee‘s—cadged from an anti-illegal-immigrant think tank…” (Center for Immigration Studies)


bullet “…Sensible, safety-minded proposal to make illegal immigrants eligible for driver’s licenses…” (Eliot Spitzer’s driver’s license scheme)


bullet “…Posturing, political cowardice and the poisonous diatribes of talk radio…” (Any politician opposed to open borders and the talk radio show host of your choice.)


bullet “…The ferocity of the demagogues…” (Us)


bullet “…Ugly environment…” (The current political climate regarding immigration enforcement that the Post not only disagrees with but loathes.)

This, mind you, represents only a sampling from the Post column. Read it all to see just how bonkers its Editorial Board is. Contact Fred Hiatt, editorial page editor, here.

For an opposing view, read a letter published in the Post written by my friend and VDARE.COM colleague Don Collins. [Terms of the Immigration Debate, December 19, 2007]

Comments to the Post editorial are worth viewing also. One reader suggests that La Raza wrote it. His observation may not be exactly correct but you can be sure that La Raza—or a like-minded ethnic identity lobbyist group—had a heavy hand in drafting it.

Also coming unglued is the Southern Poverty Law Center…not that it was ever particularly sound of mind in the first place. More…
