CONGRESSMAN CLEAVER FASTS IN SUPPORT OF IMMIGRATION REFORM

This week, I made a decision to fast for one day in solidarity with those in Washington, DC fasting for immigration reform.

My voluntary fast represents the urgency, the passion and sacrifice of a community of all creeds, race, gender, affiliation and status, striving for the attainment of immigration reform. I fast, pray and act until the bonds of families are no longer divided, until a pathway to citizenship is a fate for 11 million deserving immigrants and their families, until immigration reform is no longer a notion, but a reality.

I fasted because the suffering of immigrants and in our communities has moved me to act. I fasted in support of the many, many immigrants who have lost loved ones due to our broken immigration system. And I extend my unwavering support to the fasters around the nation who are bravely highlighting the moral crisis we face with this broken immigration system.

This year, we have come the closest ever to achieving real immigration reform with a pathway to citizenship. In June, the U.S. Senate passed a comprehensive, bipartisan immigration bill (S.744). Now, the House of Representatives has a chance to complete the dream for 11 million aspiring Americans by addressing the moral crisis that is our broken immigration system.

Unfortunately, we are still waiting to vote on the one issue that holds strong bipartisan support and is backed by a breadth of communities and groups across the country.

Every day the House leadership stalls on a vote for immigration reform, families and communities suffer the impact of deportations, deaths on the border, exploitation at work and the fear of living in the shadows with no path to citizenship.

TKC, here's where you find that your readers don't have much of a social conscience.

TKC, look at the voting record. That's what's far more important. When this thing came down to a vote most of the Democratic congress only would agree to vote for a much more watered down version of immigration reform.

Maybe hide in the bill a provision to give all 11 million immigrants a $2 Million SBA loan for a carwash. I'd fast for that..wouldn't you Rev. Cleaver!

The problem, whether we are talking about immigration reform, urban violence, native rights, is that most whites feel that whites are superior to non-whites. This fantasy of ours translates into violence & oppression against non-whites, since in the eyes of most whites, these people are not very important, or even more pathetically, not even humans.

Its similar to American Exceptional-ism, the fantasy that America is the greatest country in the world. White Americans are dismissive of any notion that there shouldn't have been an America. This land was already inhabited (& don't tell me the natives came from Siberia, because when they came here they didn't commit genocide against the first inhabitants, because they were here first.)

White people are NOT superior. American is NOT superior. Christianity is NOT superior. Until these fantasies are dealt with we cannot have an intelligent discussion about immigration, because we are starting from an irrational premise. Because they are, by definition, part native they should be accepted here without question. A Mexican-American has more of a fundamental right to be here, than an English-American.

I don't get why people like Cleaver and Byron want to turn the greatest in the world into a third world hell hole.

Here is fact that many in the media don't tell you about illegal immigration especially ones from Mexico.

Not only can they not read or write in English,…they can't read or write in Spanish. Most are largely illiterate. Also in many Northern Mexico communities women are just there to be baby factories. In fact it's common for girls 13-years-old to start families there.

Plus their very racist. In LA, Phoenix, Las Vegas, San Diego, Houston, ext blacks don't go to because they know there will be harassed or worst by the Mexicans there.

After WW2 and before the late '60s we took in the best out there. We took in scientist, doctors, engineers. Now we just take in any third world loser who can't make it in their own country.

When they come here and find out they don't have the skills and the drive to make it in America, they either go straight to a life of crime or a life of welfare.

STOP IMMIGRATION NOW. SAVE AMERICA.

As a red blooded son of the American empire and all that is American, I support and revere American Exceptionalism and repudiate Byron's polemics and indict the liberl narrative of ethnomasochistic stupidity and destrution that he promotes.

The logical conclusion of Byrons's lament, would be a return to the apes who first swung out of trees and walked up right the entire planet, or perhaps those racist Cro Magnums could be held responsible for Neaderthal aparthied and the land given rightly so to that noble, pristine and dignified race.

Shouldn't Mexicans be returned to Spain? It's fuckin ridiculous and the liberals who control the media would have you hide under your bed in shame for any and all real and percieved grievances filed by any and all accusations from any and all quarters.

The irony of a man who sits at home collecting money from the largesse of those whom he would see destroyed should not be lost on any of us. The results of liberal policies in place over the last 50 years are seen in the squalor and decay in our major urban cities all across this nation. Talk is cheap, the real time bodies in the street, pverty, joblessness and the culture of complaint and entitlement that now prevails in the American Zeitgeist is evident to all but the willfully impercipient and true beleivers.

LO, the poor white man, he has had problems with immigrants ever since he stole this land from the natives.

LO, the poor white man, he has had problems with the blacks ever since the first boat load of slaves arrived here from Africa.

Empire is theft. Our European fathers should have stayed home. When were we ever a great country? Certainly not before 1865! Certainly not before 1964!
The price of American Exceptionalism is constant, never ending warfare. The world does not admire us, they hate us, & its because of this exceptional-ism.

Attack the messenger! I don't want reality destroyed, only mythology, especially mythology that drives genocide, enslavement & war mongering.

Byron, your argument is boilerplate response that in no way accepts the ipso facto reality in place. A liberal supercillious shibboleth appealing to an imaginary world that doesn't exist but surely would if it were not for the evils of Occiidental civilization.

Total bullshit.

I did not attack you, I attacked your misplaced loyalties and preposterous ideas, that in the face of facts, are in no way tenable and workable, unless the goal is self destruction.

Poor black people…

Child rape in Africa is the highest in the world. Why? Because of Aids. See…many Africans think that if you have sex with a Virgin your AIDS in gone. So in Africa, many young girls get raped and contract AIDS because some moron thought fucking a virgin is a magical cure.

I'm sure glad their par with us.

I do not understand why any African-American politician would be for immigration reform since it is social suicide for poor Blacks.

How will immigration reform help Black America? In the long run amnesty will not impact whites or even poor whites that much but will hurt lower income Blacks. The new legal Mexican immigrants will force more poor Blacks out of the job market and on to public assistance. Black dependency on the welfare state will increase to the point where the inner cities of America will become like the Indian reservations without casinos. Look at the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation and then imagine it surrounded by a city and that is the future for poor Blacks in America after amnesty.

It is strange how many Mexicans refer to people of European descent as white people when in reality, many Mexicans consider themselves white when asked for a racial identity. Intermarriage between Mexicans and Anglos is becoming common and will increase but intermarriage between Mexicans and Blacks is very rare. Mexicans are converting to Protestantism in large numbers joining churches like the Mormon and the Pentecostals and this makes them poor candidates for the welfare state. You can read daily in the newspapers reports of friction between Mexicans and Blacks in Los Angles on the streets, in the schools and in prison and I have seen this conflict here in the Midwest. It is possible that we could see in the future that intermarriage between whites, Hispanics and Asians increase to degree that a supermajority is created with blacks still being a minority.

Dr Elijah Slowpoach said...

It goes Asians, Whites, Mexicans and then Blacks in order of intelligence. Curiously, the order is reversed in both hoops prowess and dong size.

Dr. John DeWad Holmes said...

Hey Doc, how many male Mexican porn stars can you name? The whites and the blacks have that industry. White boys tend to be gowers and not showers like the brothers.

Anonymous said...

We need immigration reform for a number of reasons. First and foremost, Democrats aren't reproducing. Well, blacks reproduce but they abort their children before birth. White Democrats are mostly either gay or radical feminists, neither of whom care about reproducing.

So, between aborting their children, men preferring to butt fuck each other and feminists who just hate men, we're soon going to have a shortage of Democrats.

Clearly, we need to legalize a bunch of people who invaded the country illegally and/or overstayed their visa because we need to import more Democrats. Well, that and the plutocrats need to keep working class wages down by creating an oversupply of illiterate no skill labor.

What a crock of shit, cooked up just for consumption of the media, who gobble it up like hyenas on a fresh kill.

Reminds me of when teens from some JoCo school or church group come down to the City and sleep in cardboard boxes during cold weather to empathize with the homeless, all the while bundled up in their NorthFace ski wear and drinking their $10 lattes.

And tomorrow, Cleaver will be warm, well-fed, and back in his office concocting his next attention-getting or money grabbing scheme, while illegal immigrants and anti-immigration Americans are still left at an impasse, and left to duke it out in border towns and barrios across America.

Fuckin' chickenshit do nothing pig is what he is......

Maybe Cleaver could take the money he'd spend on food and use it to pay the $2 million judgment against him for defaulting on his SBA Carwash loan?

When are you going to pay your debt, Rev? Are you going to remain a deadbeat?

Correction, Cleaver *said* he would fast for immigration. But then again this is the guy who claimed racial slurs were shouted at him when even after a reward of $100,000.00 was offered for evidence no one could produce any despite the presence of 100's of smartphones, cameras, etc. What Cleaver says isn't worth the time he takes to say it.

Cleaver has access to millions of dollars of grant funds. Is the purpose of these funds-one dollar for the cause and the rest for me?

If he yells long and loud he must think this distracts us for knowing the truth. Whenever he's involved with a cause, it's appears his needs are first.
