Take action now: Take the Stop Amnesty Challenge.

It's up to you to block Obama's amnesty.
 

Obama favored over McCain at NCLR meet, PWW reports (Fairness Doctrine)

Comrade Rosalio Munoz from People's Weekly World reports from the National Council of La Raza convention where John McCain and Barack Obama spoke:
"Incredibly, McCain did not even address the issues of the war in Iraq or his policy on health care. On immigration it was more of the same: secure the borders and no stop to the raids," said Angela Sambrano, an NCLR board member and director of the National Alliance of Latin-American and Caribbean Communities.

...Irene Godinez, 26, of Raleigh, N.C., who leads statewide public policy advocacy for the organization El Pueblo, said she thought "McCain was diplomatic and stressed his priorities like border security, cushioning it by saying the immigrants were 'God's children.'"

But a significant language difference gained Godinez's attention. "I noticed McCain spoke of serving American children while Obama stressed everyone," she said. "This is important for me because our Legislature just passed a law excluding undocumented students from community colleges."
Whoa, score one for McCain! This one time he was able to differentiate between U.S. citizens and the rest of the world.
Health care advocate Teresa Quezada, vice president of Mujeres Latinas of Modesto, Calif., took a more critical tone... "McCain said he opposed immigrant bashing, but he stressed 'criminals and drugs' coming across the borders time after time. That's really bashing to me."
Obviously, having large numbers of people who think that it's "bashing" to worry about those who don't "just want to work" coming across our borders is not in the U.S.'s best interests.

The article then quotes someone named "Joshua Messiah", before confirming once again that the NCLR wants to push the Fairness Doctrine or similar in order to silence their critics:
Former [NCLR president Raul Yzaguirre] echoed the sentiment. "The issue of the media has to be a big issue for us like education, health care and housing," he said. "We have to confront Lou Dobbs, Rush Limbaugh, O'Reilly and right-wing radio."

He added that electing a Congress to return the public airwaves to serve all the people and not just the huge monopolies is a critical fight. "We have to find the ways to tell our story."
Even Frank Sharry admits that the print media is in their corner, aside from Lou Dobbs and Glenn Beck most of those on television are some degree of massive/illegal immigration supporters, and the two highest-rated talk radio hosts (Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity) aren't exactly strong amnesty opponents. Apparently that's not enough for the NCLR.

Teresa Quezada: merely mentioning FACTS is not "bashing". These moonbats need to buy a dictionary.

Thank goodness for the First Amendment. Is there any doubt that without it we would now have ridiculous anti-free speech regulations like fines (or worse). Guess what groups, caucuses, etc. would be trying to direct who no longer gets to speak. Heck, they're already trying to do it now! If seemingly unconstitutional 'hate crimes' can become law, don't just assume 'hate speech' prohibition has no chance. They could use the same dubious reasoning used for hate crimes.

Yes, it's really galling to have some semi-literate Hispanic giving a lecture about how we ought not to say mean things (i.e. mention facts) about their disproportionately criminal, high school graduation-challenged brethren.

I have been noticing EXTREME MEDIA BIAS in favor of Obama. In addition to the recent analysis which shows that Obama has enjoyed over twice the news coverage as McCain, cable stations and websites like CNN are producing television specials like "Black In America", which I'm sure will air over and over ad nauseam, as a disguised P.R. promotion for Obama. CNN also shows extreme bias with the way they moderate their blogs in favor of Obama supporters, which is tantamount to censorship. And, now the three network anchors will be traveling with Obama overseas. It doesn't get more blatant than that !!!
