    NCLR putting word out against AlI-PAC's youtube.com video

    I received the following from NCLR re: urging their people to fight ALI-Pac's youtube video, and calling William Gheen: "a relentless self-promoting egomaniac prone to exaggeration "....I sign up for all the pro amnesty websites, so I am always informed on what our opponents are planning......

    Here tis':


    "Vote Against ALIPAC Video on YouTube
    Started by National Council of La Raza

    This week, the extremist anti-immigrant group, Americans for Legal Immigration Political Action Committee (ALIPAC), launched a political ad which, incredibly, smears a United States senator for accepting an award from a civil rights organization and announcing that he intends to stand up to bigots. ALIPAC has posted this video to Youtube and sent an email to its supporters, asking them to award it high ratings.

    Well, on the one hand, ALIPAC's president, William Gheen, is a relentless self-promoting egomaniac prone to exaggeration who thinks there are 58 states and wants Lou Dobbs to be President of the United States. This past June, he began a letter to the editor to the Charlotte Observer with the statement, "I'm not a murdering racist..."

    On the other hand, ALIPAC has been designated a nativist, extremist organization by the Southern Poverty Law Center, a hate group by the Anti-Defamation League, and an anti-immigrant menace by the Observer. He engages in textbook immigrant bashing, claiming that immigrants are raping and pillaging communities and bringing countless diseases into this country. The poisonous climate in North Carolina with regard to immigrants has been attributed in part to such antics.

    Unfortunately, Gheen is an anti-immigrant bigot with a platform. He is a frequent guest on cable television and talk radio, where he is introduced as an "immigration expert," an "expert" who's been quoted as saying that "illegal aliens in this country have set up ethnic cleansing zones, ethnic cleansing zones where if you walk past the wrong sign post, the invisible line, you're under the threat of death."

    Gheen is now going after elected officials on both sides of the aisle and established civil rights organizations, such as the National Council of La Raza (NCLR), that have been pushing back against the presence of hate and extremist groups in the immigration debate. Please help us send Gheen and his organization the message that his immigrant scapegoating is unacceptable and we will not stand for his hate-filled stunts.

    Go to YouTube and vote against ALIPAC's video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z_dUvVcBQFU . Comment on it. Show the world that this group of extremists is not representative of what most people think.

    Stand up to the demonizing of our civil rights institutions. Let's stand up to ALIPAC and its hate together. Please forward this email to five of your friends and ask them to sign up for We Can Stop the Hate alerts. Thank you for everything you do. Sincerely,
    NCLR

    This is an ongoing pledge that should be fulfilled as often as possible. "

    You think he is bad have you met Janet Murguia?
    I support enforcement and see its lack as bad for the 3rd World as well. Remittances are now mostly spent on consumption not production assets. Join our efforts to Secure America's Borders and End Illegal Immigration by Joining ALIPAC's E-Mail Alerts network (CLICK HERE)

    The URL is messed up but I know which video they are targeting. Pretty funny they can't even attack us properly.

    I would like a link to the NCLR where this letter was written. I honestly don't think NCLR or any other pro-illegal group would stoop that low. Just wonder if Murguia approved any of this? She might out talk everyone, but it has never been that kind of slander against any individual.

    I'm just curious and am wondering if any other Alipacers are subscribed to the NCLR emails? And if so did they get this email too?

    This is the actual "email" I received from NCLR....which prompted me to go to their site and find the campaign against alipac....
