Another take on the Riverside Plaza 

Reaction to a quote from the Press Enterprise:

The popular John and Ken Show, heard on KFI-AM 640, announced [Monday] that they would have a car washing event this Thursday at Riverside Plaza.

The event, called Replace and [sic] Illegal Alien for a day, would have had Americans doing a job that the pro illegal alien crowd says Americans won't do, wash cars. Anyone with a lick of sense knows that there are no jobs that Americans won't do but there are wages that American's won't and can't work for.

Apparently shortly after their on air announcement of the event Riverside Plaza management, who had agreed to host the show, started recieving terrorist threats of violence, rioting, property damage and even death threats from pro illegal alien supporters.

The management of Riverside Plaza caved in to the demands of the terrorists and the event has been cancelled until another location can be found.

Reconquista Professor Armando Navarro of UC Riverside told the Press Enterprise "It tells you something about their lack of support".

It seems that what the racist professor is trying to say is that because there are no reported terrorist threats by American citizens against Riverside Plaza, John and Ken "lack support". That's quite a spin Professor....

Readers of several papers, including the Minneapolis Star Tribune, read a semi-related quote from Navarro:

Organizers of the movement that has led hundreds of thousands of immigrants onto the nation's streets are split over whether to press ahead with the next big protest - a May 1 national work stoppage and student boycott.

Backers of the protest want to dramatize the importance of immigrants to the U.S. economy by leaving construction sites and restaurants undermanned, crops untended and hotel rooms uncleaned. They also hope empty classrooms will demonstrate that immigration reform is a major issue for future voters.

But others fear such protests will make immigrants look anti-American, annoy the public and alienate lawmakers who are still wavering over how to reshape U.S. immigration policy. They worry, too, that thousands will get fired from their jobs.

Encouraging youngsters to skip school "just adds fuel to the argument that we don't care about our children's education,'' said Jose Lagos, a community organizer with Honduran Unity in Miami.

Some are now afraid the split in their ranks could suppress participation May 1 and cause the movement to lose momentum.

"Our credibility as a community is on the line,'' said Armando Navarro, coordinator of the National Alliance for Human Rights, a Southern California organization pushing the boycott. "We've shown our power politically, but if we can't show it economically we are going to lose it.''...

Some leaders have staked a middle ground, supporting a protest on May 1, but after school lets out and businesses are closed....Los Angeles Cardinal Roger Mahony, an outspoken supporter of illegal immigrants, discouraged the idea during Easter Mass.

"Go to work. Go to school,'' Mahony said. "And then join thousands of us at a major rally afterward.''

Leaders of the Service Employees International Union, which has gotten thousands to rallies and helped with crowd control, said they cannot endorse a boycott because of collective bargaining agreements. And some union leaders feel such action would be premature, anyway....

Some of the Spanish-language deejays in Los Angeles who helped supercharge turnout at a rally March 25 that drew 500,000 people have backed off, too.

El Piolin...has been more reserved in his calls to activism, and openly opposes students skipping school May 1.

"We have to demonstrate that we came here to succeed,'' Sotelo said. "There are different ways to show we love the United States. We just have to make sure we don't damage anyone.''
