BP 2 from the SOS perspective

by littlebopeep Sunday, Jun. 26, 2005 at 6:04 PM

General observations for those interested - from the mind of a 'racist hate monger'.

Generally speaking, it is a good day when NO ONE gets hurt.. I mean that for both sides. Actually, I rather enjoy speaking to the 'other side' if you will, if it is a reasonable discussion, and we keep our passions in check. It is hard to do sometimes. And, for some folks, it seems harder than for others.

The numbers I counted were as follows...about 50 SOS/CCIR and others. perhaps 60 at the peak. Media of course wandered about, so it was a challenge to keep recounting while discounting them.

400 goons (counterprotesting types) in eventually 2 groups. One my the monument, and one down by the corner of Pacific and Downing. I assume that the PD shut off the valve at some point as the CP's approched our location, hence a cut off, and then 2 groups. As per my prediction, the PD was not very interested in letting a large group face us again. They let a smaller group face us of about 50, but when a large group, perhpaps 150 arrived, they sent the 50 to join them. They CP's were not allowed in our proximity. Bogus really, since I think it would have been ok to let us at least face off to some extent. I get the feeling that the BP PD and powers that be are not interested in letting us do so for many reasons, including safety. I wont tip my hand on the other reasons...sorry folks, every one has trade secrets ! ;)

Of particular interest to me today were the lime green hatted ambulance chasers. Fist of all, let me say that new hats are in order. Lime green is terrible. It just does not do even the attractive ones justice out there. Belive it or not , fashion is important out there! I choose only hats that maximize my already very sexy presence. Second, it is comical to me that at least 6 chasers decied to join the ranks of the sometimes babling crowd. Do not get me wrong, there are some good folks on your side, and I would really like to talk to some of you. But some of you all , i mean really! Can you at least not lump us all into this 'racist hate monger' camp ? I oppose only illegal immigration. That does not make me by default a racist just becuzz you all feel that there should be no border. Think it thru for a change, and try to be more reasonable. I would love a 'world without borders', but this is just pie in the sky as long as there are those that would come into the USA and just wipe us all out. You all would be screaming for help if we opened up this country to all that would come here...it would be complete chaos, even if only those that didnt want to destroy this place came here. Do not any of you believe that without the militray protecting us, that we would be over-run by those that want our country for themselves, and do not have any intention of sharing it? So, it is just amazing that they law boys and girls decide to be there for a group that has so many thugs in it.

Regarding who we call Marvin the Martian becuzz of his resembling the warner brothers character in the bugs bunny cartoons. He always wears a black riot helmet, big protective shades, and carries a black and red 'sandinista? flag.... we chanted for his appearance. We saw him coming to our local early, but then no Marvin. Eventually , we looked behind us, and there he was ! The police would not let him thru. I moved quickly to ask them to let him in, becuzz without him, it is just not the same! We really enjoy his antics. Well, all of a sudden, he is on the ground being arrested ! Bogus. I assume it was for non-compli ? Anyone knows , plz let me know... I suggested a 'free Marvin' vigil at the PD, but everyone was hungry at that point , and wanted to go home too. Does anyone know 'Marvin's' real first name ?

Ok, so the police presence was staggering, I am sure you agree. Arrests were made of people that decided to smeak thru the train track area. Another arrest was made when someone tried to smeak around a police line. I am never big on arbitrary arrests that are trivial in nature. We did chant various things when one guy was dragged off in front of us...then again dragged the other direction in front of us! What a humiliating experience for him! Anyway, he looked rather thugish, so we really did not have much sympathy. Sorry, many of you would have done the same! Not that this justifies anything, but it was very fun to chant 'ole, ole, ole, ole, go home...go home' to one on your side for a change!

It is not even a question that local biz suffered. Some even were closed for the day on what was there busiest day. Get this one thing straight : this is the fault of the dunce mayor Lazano, and his goons. He said at first, on film , that he would like to see the racist lang on the monument come down, and then when he saw that he had no support , he pulls a John Kerry. Well, he is getting what he deseves now! Local biz owners will fry him for this. Can you imagine... streets shut down for hours. Major intesections closed, close to 200 LEO and ghetto birds deployed, and all they do is issue a 'resolution' stating the it stays! Truely amazing. Politickin at its finest! A true thug of a mayor interested in his own advancement..

You all need to get rid of him before he tries something else like the lame permit bit. I know you all hate that like we do, so on one thing we very much agree on.

I , like most of the others there today, live in the county of Los Angeles. We are no more 'outsiders' than most of you. I grew up on these streets and they are mine also. I am very comfortable on them. Its a glove like fit for me.

We are not going anywhere. We will continue are fight against all forms of racism and double standards. Yes, the National Vangaurd showed up. Is there really anything we can do about it ? We gave them a hard time, and they moved away from us as much as they could. The police would not let them go anywhere , and we are under the impression that there is not much we can do to make them leave. They have their rights i assume , just like you all do, and we all do. Once again, like is stated on the www.saveourstate.org web site, we reject ALL reacist/sep orgs and their various disgusting doctrines. I am not white, and so they reject me from joining their ranks, even if I werer to express an interest. That SICKENS me. I am offended by those that take in consideration race over character, by those that feel the way one is born is of merit. It is not over any merit. Especially sickening is the thought that since my wife is white , that they would accept her and not me! I do not think I would mind it if they wanted to join our side on this cause if they just kept there lame racism to themselves and just went out there as American. They just can not seem to do this, and they come with shirts on that have their web site on it , and even pass out their hate fliers. Sigh....we are doing all we feel we can to discouage them, and when I see them there, i cringe and start to boil becuzz they just can not be civil about it. They just spew out the racism.

This is not a complete reporting. Just to tired for that right now.
