There are plenty of hard and/or ineffective ways to oppose the Bilderberg conference. Instead, I'll describe something you can do in less than five minutes that - if enough people joined in - would have a measurable impact.
The goal of this approach is to make Bilderberg toxic to some degree. That is, leaders wouldn't want to be caught attending one of their meetings. Wouldn't that go a long way towards reducing Bilderberg influence?
...Six months after 50,000 immigrants and their supporters marched in downtown Atlanta to protest legislation that cracks down on illegal immigrants, the same organizers rallied with a much smaller but similarly vocal crowd...."We want to open the door," said one of the pro immigration rally organizers, Teodoro Maus, 'former Mexican consul in Atlanta. "How they do it is a matter of negotiation."
Maus had harsh words for the small group of protesters with their bullhorns telling them to get out of the U.S.' "I think they are xenophobic," he said. "They are racists and they are hiding their racism in 'legal or not legal.'"
Also quotes a protester as denying that he's a racist and saying in effect that some of his best friends are Mexicans. Obviously, some people need to learn how to respond to MSM setups designed to make them look bad:
One of the protesters, hot sauce company owner Jerry Gualtieri, insisted he is not a racist. "I have very good Mexican friends," Gualtieri, wearing a belt buckle emblazoned with a Confederate flag, said. Just as he spoke, a fellow protester walked by with a sign that read, "Mexico is not our friend."
Obviously, there's a difference between "Mexico" and "Mexicans" (and, "Mexican-Americans".)
Asked about the sign, Gualtieri said there's nothing contradictory about his position."It's because 85 percent of the illegals happen to be Mexican," he said. "We're a nation of laws."
A better response would have been pointing out Mexico's aggressive attempts to send us people and their aggressive attempts to influence U.S. policy. Maybe Weber could have learned something.Note that in past articles the AP has failed to note Maus' previous affiliation, but that's changed for at least this and one other recent article.
1. One of the organizers of the March 24 Georgia boycott was Teodoro Maus, a former Mexican consul general. He was also one of the organizers of the October 7 Atlanta march. That march was led by GA state Senator Sam Zamarripa and GA state representative Pedro Marin, both members of the Democratic Party.
Also known as the March 10 Movement, March 10 Coalition, Diez de Marzo Committee.
