With their vandalism of offices of the Santa Barbara News-Press this week, activists for illegal immigrants in California have proven themselves to be but a single step away from being just like the terrorists who killed 12 members of a French newspaper.
The media has been filled with news of the attack by Muslim terrorists on the offices of the left-wing French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo in which 12 staffers of the paper were killed. The Muslims attacked the paper and murdered the publication’s staffers because the Muslims felt that the paper had committed blasphemy against Islam.
Now, a newspaper in California has been attacked by illegal alien activists because it dares to use the word “illegal” to describe the criminals who have broken our laws to come into the United States.
Illegal alien activists vandalized the offices of the Santa Barbara News-Press over use of the word, spray painting such things as “the border is illegal, not the people who cross it” and other slogans on the walls of the paper’s offices.
With this sort of attack on the free press inside the USA, we can see that illegal activists are now becoming ever more militant. It is clear that they are not too far behind the terrorists who murdered newspaper staffers in France.
Obviously these illegal alien activists are attempting to intimidate the newspaper into eschewing the phrase “illegal alien” even though the phrase is perfectly descriptive and proper to use.
For its part the paper is refusing to stop its proper use of the term, and good for them.
But if the paper continues to ignore these activists for lawbreakers, how long will it be before they step up their hate-filled tactics? How long before they graduate from merely defacing private property to destroying that property? And then how far are they from killing people with whom they disagree?
In the end, what makes these activists for illegal immigrants much different from the terrorists in France?
