Frank's use of the word "power" when describing the bullet flying through a politician's car window just goes to show what he thinks power is. He feels that power gained by owning weapons. Isn't that how gangs think Frank. Some of us like to think they power is gained by knowledge and learning. Please explain to me what peaceful revolution we have tried to wage as a nation. Why not try to get people together through civility rather than create factions by calling for civil war.
Before I get to the speech I have a couple more Durant quotes for Frank:
Most of us spend too much time on the last twenty-four hours and too little on the last six thousand years.
From Durant's Declaration of Interdependence
Human progress having reached a high level through respect for the liberty and dignity of men, it has become desirable to re-affirm these evident truths:
That differences of race, color, and creed are natural, and that diverse groups, institutions, and ideas are stimulating factors in the development of man [humankind]; That to promote harmony in diversity is a responsible task of religion and statesmanship; That since no individual can express the whole truth, it is essential to treat with understanding and good will those whose views differ from our own; That by the testimony of history intolerance is the door to violence, brutality and dictatorship; and That the realization of human interdependence and solidarity is the best guard of civilization.
Therefore, we solemnly resolve, and invite everyone to join in united action.
To uphold and promote human fellowship through mutual consideration and respect; To champion human dignity and decency, and to safeguard these without distinction of race, or color, or creed; To strive in concert with others to discourage all animosities arising from these differences, and to unite all groups in the fair play of civilized life.
ROOTED in freedom, bonded in the fellowship of danger, sharing every-where a common human blood, we declare again that all men are brothers, and that mutual tolerance is the price of liberty.
Introduction: Representing Latino Americans For Immigration Reform - Lupe Moreno. I don't know how many of you know Lupe. He's also the chairman for Antelope Valley Minutemen. Please welcome Frank Jorge.
Frank Jorge: Well thank you everybody and good afternoon. I bring you greetings from illegal alien occupied California where you can savor the third world countries just by walking down the street. I do know that we have opposition here today. I like that - you know - you can't have a good ice cream sundae without some chocolate or something on it and they really spice things up for me.
One thing I would like to share with those folks, some of which I think have intermingled with you is that I was originally born in Cuba. I have family there and on their behalf I wish to communicate to all you communists that communism sucks. --- freedom. You can't get toothpaste and their is no Lidocaine or Novocaine when you go to the dentist. My cousin is a dentist and she let me know all of these things.
You know a few weeks ago I was watching a movie by Mel Gibson called Apocalypto. None of it is in English. Sort of like in Los Angeles, California. ---- either. And one of the things that struck me was a quote that he put right there in front of the movie as it began. It's a quote by American author William Durant and it goes like this "No great civilization is conquered from without until it has destroyed itself from within"
I will share with you, quite bluntly, what my feelings are on what has happened in the United States of America because this is not the country that I immigrated to legally in 1957 before Castro took over. I do not think that we are losing America ladies and gentlemen I think that we have lost it and that if anything we must be all means necessary take it back.
It is not lost on me that we're next to Philadelphia and supposedly Rocky Balboa is living someplace up there, but who the hell needs Rocky when you've got the sandwich guy right here. Now that's a real Italian stallion. Thank you Joey. Now you wonder who it is that we have lost the United States to. We have really lost it to the multi-national corporations, we have lost it to the Republican party, which has been purchased like a cheap trinket by the multi-national corporations and the Democratic party. You don't really have anybody representing you anymore. Let's face it, look, the last amnesty was declared in 1986 in one of the most idiotic moves Ronald Reagan ever made. God bless him for the good things he'd done, but Ronald that was really stupid. Even I was shaking my head and saying "my God this is something that I am going to have to confront." Well here we are twenty-one years later and what are they doing, they're trying to propose another amnesty because they know no other way in which to serve their masters, the multi-national corporations and the elitist that really run this government.
Let there be known now, we are part of the formula of what runs this nation and what runs this government, but it appears that we are negligent in their point of view. Because even right now, after that idiot of a president said "see you at the signing", you know what I'm talking about then - that hideous bill that he wanted to promote. I hear that just a few days ago he signed papers so that the Mexican trucks can roll across the border. And this is who you have representing you as a nation - and the gentleman asked a very question "why hasn't he been impeached." Because everybody else has been bought out obviously. That's why. In the 1950's this would not have played itself out more than a day. In the 1960's I don't think it would have either. Today in 2007 it is quite common to hear someone as mentally and verbally challenged as George Bush say things like "see you at the signing" because he could give a flying you know what's about what you and I think about the future of this nation. If this president will be known for anything, it will be for presiding over an American holocaust. 9,000 Americans killed a year by illegal aliens is not a laughing matter and I wish that I could get into the oval office with that dick of a president and let him know what I think.
The fact is that revolution and civil war are not unknown to the American people. Revolution occurs when the people overthrow it's government or it's ruler and no longer desire to be governed by such. We are already in that process whether you acknowledge it or not. In 2005 when men and women, including myself, I am a man by the way, went to the borders in Arizona that was the beginning of a revolution, it was a way of telling government "we have had enough." Incrementally government ratchets it up. Incrementally so do we. That is why we are here today. That is why rallies like this are occurring all over the United States of America. A civil war occurs when you can't take it anymore and the bullets begin flying.
Let me share with you what I think may happen in these United States of America because I am convinced that if something does not change we will dive headlong into a civil war. I have heard this all the way from Alabama to Texas to California. Grandmother's have told me "hey, I'm locked and loaded I'm ready baby, let's go." (audience applauds and laughs - I guess war is funny to them.) We do not know how the violent phase of this process will begin. Conceivably, maybe one of those that have had one of theirs killed by an illegal alien will utilize their second amendment rights to take out the killer and in addition take out a politician that made it possible for it to occur.
Politicians will respect you. Politicians will acknowledge your power when they see a round flying through their windshield and getting into their flesh. That will get their attention. I'm not advocating violence; it is already here and you have to acknowledge that. 9,000 Americans killed a year by, what? people that are not supposed to be here - a government that is playing games. That doesn't cut it for me ladies and gentlemen. I can only be moved so far back. We are already painted into a corner and we have no place to go. We are already second class citizens. I want to remind the federal government of America a quote by John Fitzgerald Kennedy, and I never have been a Kennedy fan. "Those who make peaceful revolution impossible make violent revolution inevitable. This is your country. Take it back. Thank you.
