Hate and Racism in the Immigration Debate

And people say that critics of immigration aren't racially motivated?  Here's clear evidence, once again, that more than a few certainly are!

"They are scared and I can't blame them," he told the paper, speaking about his documented employees. "It is affecting a lot of restaurants. It's a mess."

Suddenly, Dubrinsky had much greater problems.

The morning the article ran, Dubrinsky hopped in his car and turned on local talk radio, only to discover that the discussion topic was Dubrinsky himself. The host and his guests were trying to decide whether or not they should boycott the deli.

Dubrinsky grabbed his paper and read the Birmingham News article just to make sure he hadn't been misquoted, perhaps voicing support for undocumented immigrants. Indeed, he was quoted accurately, showing sympathy for the area's properly documented workers.

It hardly mattered. Dubrinsky was being tarred as an illegal-immigrant lover.

"People twisted what the story said," Dubrinsky told HuffPost. "I was under attack."

The article had been shared on an anti-immigrant website, and Dubrinsky was soon bombarded with vitriolic hate email, some of which he shared with HuffPost.

One reads: "well u can bet your ass that i will never eat in yourswastika resturant agian and will tell everybody i know what kind of person you are for suporting those dam wetback that are ruining our country."

Another: "if you cant keep the doors open and employ legal people then it is time to close."

And another: "I hope your unamerican establishment closes down!!!!"

You can read the whole, disgusting story here.

I would like to take this opportunity to encourage you to read The Ominous Parallels by Leonard Peikoff.  At first, it sounds preposterous that anyone could compare what's going on in America today (politically, socially and philosophically) with the German Nazi Party, but since reading this book, the parallels have become glaringly and frighteningly apparent!
