Fight the invasion

I found this flier near a construction site this morning:


Google translates as follows:

High to deportations!

Sunday, March 26, 2017/4 PM - 6 PM Church Our Savior Lutheran Church KC 4153 Rainbow Blvd, Kansas City, Kansas 65103

A KC Fight invites you to a conversation with immigration experts, they can answer your questions to create plans of action and resistance. There will be music in LIVE!

Food on sale to raise funds for Johnathan and Andres; Who were unjustly arrested in the protest 'A Day Without Immigrants.'

Doesn't helping scofflaws and their sympathizers create plans of "action and resistance" against a federal agency carrying out a legally mandated function constitute the aiding and abetting of illegal activity?

Let's see if we can move ICE to take a look at this civilizationally seditious gathering. Here's the ICE tip form page. For selected violation, I chose "human smuggling" and for who the complaint involves, I selected "business/company" and entered the church's information a second time.

In the summary box I put "I have been tipped off to a meeting this Sunday, March 26th from 4pm-6pm at the address above that will feature advice on how to take action against ICE and help illegal immigrants avoid deportation. The people planning this are aiding and abetting illegal activity and their audience will be illegal immigrants and those assisting them."

If you'd prefer to call, ICE's toll-free phone line is (866) 347-2423.

Here is the homepage of the church hosting the invaders, and here is the email address of organizers: unaluchakc@gmail.com.

"Alto" in Spanish does indeed mean "high" but also means "halt," so a better translation of the header would be "Stop the deportations."

I was surprised to find that the church "Our Savior Lutheran" is a member of the Missouri Synod, generally a pretty conservative organization that usually eschews politics and favors strict interpretation of Scripture. I thought this church would belong to the ELCA, a very liberal Lutheran group. Not so, apparently.

You could show up with a Trump hat and a camera and see if everyone scatters.

Black Death,

I thought the exact same thing. I checked two sources to make sure that it is in fact Missouri Synod.

The Missouri Synod is far more conservative than the ELCA. I was raised in the ELCA and my in-laws are Episcopalians, and both are everything you'd expect from fully converged 'mainline' denominations.

Dan,

I'll contact the church and ask if that's allowed. That could be fun.

Black Death said...

AE -

Yeah, I feel the same way. BTW, thanks for the link to the political leanings of different groups. Muslims, Buddhists. Hindus and atheists all pretty much lump together - supporting mostly the Democrats. I wonder when that weird mish-mash coalition will finally blow up. Should be fun to watch.

This is the best strategy. Make it so these people don't feel like they are in a safe/sanctuary area. Make it so that the only option they feel they have is to go back south of the border. If they want to be in America so bad, then they can go apply to be a citizen through legal means. We want these voluntary deportations to be a thing and it would be great to see an endless stream of people going back south (or going north to Canada, who cares).

Surely you don't want them to scatter before ICE gets there?

I'm working with the local group that put on the America First rallies across the country a few weeks ago (that I attended) to see if I can get a few people to go with me. This is a heavily Hispanic area of the city and it's inside so I'll be in foreign territory. It's probably not prudent to go alone. So far I have a few potentially interested. I'll go if I can get a few to commit.

Dan said...

Don't worry, just go, by yourself if need be. It will feel great. If anyone threatens you, just call the cops. If threatened just announce that you are calling the cops and do it. We have sovereignty and the law is 100% with us. Def don't make threats to hurt anyone and be unarmed. But your cell phone to call cops is all the safety you need and it works great. Go, man. No harm will come. Friends are good but not necessary. Stand near the pastor or speaker like you own the place.

Dan said...

The cops are huge allies and have tremendous power and are 100 percent on your side. You can summon them the moment you feel unsafe. That is all you need. Unarmed is key.

Dan,

One of my favorite mindset aphorisms is "There are no victims, only volunteers".

This is an area of the city where the police notoriously take 20 minutes to respond. It's not a public event and it looks like everything is going to be in Spanish. For all I know someone who monitors the blog gave Una Lucha a heads up that someone might be coming to record and a gangbanger from MS-13 puts a bullet in the back of my head when I'm walking in. It's not prudent to go alone, even if it is my prerogative and I'm 100% in the right.

This does make clear to me that I need to network with Alt-Right types here in the metro area. I've asked multiple people I know from who are conservatives of one stripe or another and no one is committal.

If I do get a hard confirmation I will go. I'll either Facebook live it or Periscope it. Probably the latter since it'll be easy to do through my twitter feed.

"Compare his inaugural speech to Reagan’s. Predictably, both addresses are peppered with references to the nation, America and Americans, and “the people.” But Reagan’s also alluded to individuals five times and freedom and liberty a combined 11 times. Trump had no mention of individuals or liberty and his speech contained just one instance of the word freedom—which was quickly followed by language about flag-saluting. (Remember, this is the guy who called for a year in jail or even loss of citizenship for flag burning—far beyond what any other conservative has ever suggested.)"

I'm gonna go out on a limb and assume that the majority of Trump's speech writers were of the Korea/Vietnam generation, not the WW2 generation. These were people who felt suffocated by the G.I. machine and were anxious to dismantle it as early as the late 60's. By the early 80's, at the dawn of Reagan America, many of his advisors had convinced him that popular appeal lay in promises to unchain people from onerous restrictions on the individual. Privileged Silents never felt the same obligation to a social contract as G.I.s, while arrogant Boomers hated the idea of their often selfish ambitions being held down by strong institutions. By the late 70's, "conservatives" firmly agreed that society's primary concern was The Family and instilling strong values in one's children. The G.I. machine asked people to make sacrifices for a nation-wide team whether they liked it or not, and furthermore, it didn't have room for moralism. Which led to decades of resentment among younger generations who just wanted to live as they saw fit with no one questioning them. Two generations that benefited tremendously from a system they never really understood ungratefully attacked the notion of subordinating oneself to the greater good.

Trump's speech writing is influenced by X-ers (including Stephen Miller b.1984) who grew up at a time when adults stopped minding the store because it just wasn't exciting enough. The pleasures of this era are greater the earlier you were born, while the most pain has been inflicted on younger people. What we now need as a whole has become more important than what a given person wants. Also, Trump himself and his older advisors have finally come to realize how much has been wrought over the last 40-50 years of irresponsibility.

assume that the majority of Trump's speech writers. I mean Reagan's writers. Oops.

Audacious Epigone said...

Feryl,

I recall having a discussion somewhere over the course of the '16 election where a fairly well-known cuckservative said something to the effect of "conservatism is not a collective ideology, it's individualist."

It's not an ideology at all, but to the extent that this is the case, it is irrelevant at the moment. It's akin to talking about the victory party celebration when your team is down by 10 with five minutes left in the fourth quarter.

From the Washington Times in 2015:

"Catholic Charities USA, the largest charitable organization run by the church, receives about 65 percent of its annual budget from state and federal governments, making it an arm of the federal welfare state, said Brian Anderson, a researcher with the Manhattan Institute."

And you can bet that a big chunk of that money gets used to promote open borders and illegal immigration.

And it's probably just as bad with the mainline Protestant churches and the different variations of Judaism.

Big religion is every bit as corrupt as "big" anything else, whether it's big government, big business, big labor, big media, big education, or big philanthropy. This is why I get so angry when I hear some religious leader lecture us about our "broken immigration system" and poor "people in the shadows." Nothing has been broken, our system has been deliberately trashed, and no these people are not in the shadows, they're in our faces telling us "hand it over or else, chumps."

Audacious Epigone said...

Sgt Joe Friday,

The idea that they're "in the shadows" is an idea so stupid only people who do everything they can to make sure they don't have to have any firsthand experience with illegal immigration could believe it.
