A blogger went undercover at an ANSWER meeting and has a report. The meeting mostly concerned ANSWER's upcoming Monday April 10 rally for illegal aliens in Washington DC and their NYC rally on the 29th. A featured guest was Juan Jose Gutierrez (also featured here in "AVWatch: Villaraigosa's under-reported associations" and "The Trojan Horses of Sacramento").
At the meeting, National Coordinator of the A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition Brian Becker reportedly said the following:
"The Sensenbrenner bill is so odious, such a threat, so far reaching in its efforts to criminalize, make felons out of the 12 million people who are doing nothing except trying to feed their families, and make felons out of all those immigrant communities that assist those people, that the lash of the oppression, of that repression, of that counterrevolution, that it provoked the beginning of what could be a new revolutionary movement. Maybe it won't be the ultimate revolution, but certainly it has the ingredients and elementary factors that make up all revolutionary movements. If you think about it, this is the way that all great movements start, including the American Revolution."
Don't think they're so fringe; as the Villaraigosa link shows, the current mayor of L.A. spoke at one of Gutierrez' rallies. And, the Los Angeles Times refered to ANSWER's LA chapter as an "antiwar and anti-racism group".
