|"The hate was palpable"|
As 3 Homeland Security buses carrying migrant children and families were being transferred to a suburban processing center in Murrieta California when 200 to 300 hundred of the towns worst examples of humanity blocked the group from reaching their destination.
The protestors waved American flags and chanting “Go home” "They're not born here!" "Impeach Obama!" (because of course) "Deport! Deport!" “God Bless America” and "USA" while holding signs that read “Illegals Out” “Return to sender” and "Protect your children from disease" (?).
This ugly showdown came one day after Murrieta Mayor Alan Long ratcheted up Murrieta's residents by urging them to protest the federal government’s decision to move the immigrants through their town. In addition the town posted a notice on its website: "Murrieta Opposes Illegal Immigrant Arrival" for good measure.
It was also reported that police officers who were there for "public safety" urged the protestors who had previously been standing on the side of the road to move into the path of the oncoming busses causing the ensuing stand off.
Some of the protestors were interviewed by various news sources and here's a taste of what they had on their small ignorant minds... (Now remember these are just children and families)
Protester Angela Sherman, of French Valley, said...
“I’m here to protect the rights of American citizens, not illegal immigrants. There are other ways to go about getting a better life.”
Protester Diane Lytton, of Horsethief Canyon, said...
“We’re just letting them in by droves. It’s not a racial thing for me (always a dead giveaway). It’s a matter of right and wrong. I’m just worried about the future for my children, my grandchildren.”
Protester Roger Cotton, of San Diego, said...
"Who’s going to pay for them? What kind of criminality will happen? The Democrats are making it easy for them to come here so they can produce more Democratic voters,"
Protestor Dr. Robert Treuherz and his wife, Claudia,, said...
"Who are these people? Where do they end up? Are they going to pay taxes? The American people are being held to a very narrow political agenda at our peril."
On a less shameful note after the buses were blocked from entering Murrieta by the protestors authorities rerouted the vehicles to San Ysidro where they were welcomed with cheers and people holding signs of encouragement. Activists chanted loudly outside the station after the children and families arrival to let them know that there are some people in the United States who support them.
So, at least there's that.
Here are pictures of the Murrieta protestors doing themselves proud...
