Driving liberals, dhimmis and illegal alien apologists absolutely insane since 2005...

The Chicken Man

By Greg L | 19 July 2007 | Illegal Aliens, Prince William County | 63 Comments

Here’s one for posterity:

Noting the chickens, illegal construction, overcrowding, parking and other issues, the Post says our Board “unanimously approved an anti-illegal immigrant resolution, saying that it will diminish those behaviors by driving out the group.” But they note many of the chickens “are brought to Prince William by homesick legal residents.” The chickens are a problem we need to deal with, but throwing out the illegals won’t fix the chicken problem or the parking problem or the overcrowding problem.

I wonder if anyone else out there really believes that by reducing the number of illegal aliens, we won’t have less overcrowding, fewer parking problems, or fewer people who decide that it’s a good idea to unlawfully keep livestock in residential areas.  Is there some sort of derangement syndrome associated with this sort of thinking, or is it just the product of someone’s imagination that has not yet been informed by actually talking to the residents who deal with these issues?

The ‘chicken man’ is born, I would think.

    What you have got to understand is that reducing illegal aliens in our community is not a “silver bullet” for dealing with the chicken over-crowding problem. Chickens are a Federal issue, and until the USDA steps up and does its job, States and Localities can only have a limited impact. PETA is planning on filing a law suit, as this law targets chickens. Don’t give me that business about “free-range” and “non-free-range”. “Chicken” means the same thing as “Chicken”. Also, I prefer to call them “undocumented poultry”.

    Cut the benefits. Don’t give them foodstamps, free medical, free education, WIC, welfare, loans, subsidized housing, etc. It is much like a balloon (representing our community) being filled with water (representing illegal immigrants and their families) from a wide open valve (representing the social benefits provided to the illegal immigrants and their families) on a faucet. If one leaves the valve open (continues providing social benefits to illegal immigrants and their families), the balloon (our community and infrastructure) will keep filling up until it eventually pops. What we need to do is…turn the valve off (cut the benefits off completely)! Once we do this…the illegal immigrants will no longer have a “gravy train” to operate from which enables them to continue their chain migration activities.

    Why go all the way to expensive ole’ fairfax when they can just zip on over to the park and live here with the complete blessing of the elected officials and police? Our own little sanctuary city right in the heart of PWC. Come one, come all. Let’s just make the park the officially recognized illegal mecca so I can sell and get the f out of dodge/tijuana.

    I just heard on WMAL that Takoma Park is investigating an arrest its police made on a immigation warrant because it may have been against their sanctuary city ordinance.

    Since a spokesman for Takoma Park said that what is going on in NOVA will not affect their policy let’s just hand out fliers informing our illegals that they are welcome on the other side of the Potomac.

    Both sides win. We decrease some of the overcrowding and Takoma Park can be even more compassionate and feel good about itself.

I’m sure with the County and the City going live with 287g that this will put pressure on them. Get your neighbors to keep calling the council. Keep agitating. Don’t give up.

    I would like you to take a look at this video to see that some of our “elected officials” in office, NCLR, and groups like Mecha are tied together. These groups have an agenda contrary to what the United States is all about! This is why we see a population boom in all of our cities around our country. This is real. Real names, real places, and real organizations. Tie this into the EZLN and you complete the picture!

    Analysis of the The Aztec Al-Qaeda video. Shows ties between NCLR, Mayor of Los Angeles Antonio Villaraigosa, and Mecha.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zc1XAQc8hS8&mode=related&search

    Time: 0:06 – 0:12 States that Marcos Aguilar is the Principal and founder of the Academia Semillas del Pueblo charter school.

    Time: 0:12 – 0:17 States that the Mayor of Los Angeles Antonio Villaraigosa and Marcos Aguilar were members of the UCLA chapter of Mecha.

    Time: 0:18 – 0:26 States that Mecha was founded for the sole purpose of “radicalizing young Latino students for the hatred of America and to promote Chicano pride and separatism”

    Time: 0:33 – 0:38 States that Mecha “seeks nothing less than control of the United States through the ballot box or by armed revolution”

    Time: 0:40 – 0:44 States that Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa was President of UCLA chapter of Mecha.

    Time: 1:00 – 1:04 States that Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa demanded Communist inclusion within the UCLA Chicanos study center.

    Time: 1:30 – 1:55 Marcos Aguilar discusses that it is a bad thing for Mexican children to become “Americanized” (which would mean that it is a bad thing for Mexican children to assimilate into the common American Identity which is what all true Americans have done to keep this nation together and united).

    Time: 1:55 – 2:24 States that the Academia Semillas del Pueblo charter school that is run by Marcos Aguilar caters to grades K through 8, is funded by State tax-payers and the National Council of La Raza (NCLR), that most of the students are children of illegal aliens, and that these children are taught a language now used by the Mexican Mafia.

    Time: 2:24 – 2:37 Marcos Aguilar states “nowhere in the Constitution of the United States or the Declaration of Independence does it say that because you come here you have to now become an American. English, math, and American history take a backseat to Danza Azteca”

    Time: 2:54 – 3:28 Clearly shows the violence of Chicano radicals and La Raza against legal American citizens.

    Time: 4:04 – 6:28 Shows Marcos Aguilar’s affiliation with Juan Alvarez (who was a member of the Mecha club) who was involved in derailing a passenger train that killed 11 people and injuring approximately 200 people in 2005 in Glendale, CA.

    Time: 6:30 – 7:18 States that KABC Reporter Sandy Wells was attacked after trying to interview Marcos Aguilar at the Academia Semillas del Pueblo charter school that he runs, and that when news of the event was made known to the public, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa stated that he supported the school and its teaching philosophy.

    Time: 7:18 – 7:23 Quote from Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa (while serving as the President of UCLA chapter of Mecha) “For those of the race, everything. For those outside the race, nothing.”

    Time: 7:32 – 7:36 The National Council of La Raza opened 50 new charter schools in 2005.

    We the legal American citizens demand that people associated with groups like Mecha NEVER get into public office! Additionally, our government allows groups like NCLR (having known ties to groups like Mecha) to influence our country’s decision makers behind closed doors!

    Thanks for the support Patty. My neighbors are ALL hispanic and many of them are illegal or supporters of illegals in some fashion. My next door neighbor has all kinds of people coming and going and a different face moving in or out every month. People do heavy mechanical work on their cars out in the parking lot while playing their loud mexican music, cars with broken windows parked in spots for months on end going unrepaired, kids all run wild in the street and leave their trash all over my yard, young kids (6 or 7) play in the street at 10:00 at night with no sign of a parent telling them it’s time for bed.

    The park is lost already because 90% of the people here are either legal hispanics or illegal hispanics, neither of which will support any crack down on this situation. I have complained until I am blue in the face to my condo association at Mosby Ridge II about this situation and they say they can’t do anything unless the majority of the owners start complaining. Since all of them love to live like this and don’t want to have the rules enforced, therefor there is no enforcement. This just mirrors what is going on all over this town. I like to refer to it as forced cultural conversion.

    Thanks for the support and kind words but I just want out of here. This town does not care about this problem and will always use the “it’s a federal issue, we can’t do anything” excuse. As long as the park’s officials can continue to run their scams, build their ultra extravagant schools and police buildings, and charge the highest real estate taxes in the state of Virginia to pay for all of it, then they are fine with the status quo. I just want out of here ASAP and want to return to living in the USA. This is not how I imagined my American dream…

    ““undocumented poultry” How about Illegal Avians.”

    I checked with Susan Svihlik, the galactically liberal editor of the Manasas JM, and this is what she responded with (for those in Manassas Park, this is parody):

    “We generally follow the ACLU Style Book or Nancy Pelosi’s “Elements of Groovy Liberal Style” in our writing and we edit contributions from readers to fit our style. By “style” we mean a general agreement on word usage and spelling and grammar, or changing them all together to suit our agenda. It has little to do with whether a word is offensive or not (unless it would offend the permenant underclass that we want to establish, consisting of undocumented workers, that we the intelectual elite, dare I say Nomenklatura of true Amerika can influence and exploit) and much to do with uniformity for thought-control. The accepted “style” covers everything from whether to say “Comrade” or “Komraden” in place of Democratic Candidate or whether to use “amid” or “amidst.”

    Avian and Poultry mean the same thing; “Avian” does not imply “illegal.” So the use of either word has nothing to do with legitimizing anything. Using “Poultry” conforms with the newspaper’s agreed upon liberal style. That’s all.

    In your case, had I been editing your letter, I probably would have left the word “Avian” alone because you put it in quotation marks, to prove that you are a right-wing xenophobic reactionary. But that’s just a sign of differing approaches to editing, not a nefarious motive or message intended, at least I hope it doesn’t look that way, because then we’d be found out.”

    So there you have it. Right-Wing Racists use the term “Illegal Avians”, while Neo-Marxist Liberals use “undocumented poultry”.

    Regarding the Dumfiries “Chicken Ranch” that was the subject of a story in today’s MJM, it appears that those charged with prostitution were of Korean ethnicity. I wonder if there’s a way to determine the legality of their presence in the country. If they’re illegal, that would add to the argument that we need to address the harboring of illegals in the county in contravention to federal law. Any ideas on how we could find out that info? If we’re going to have prostitutes in our county, they should at least be here legally.

    “There are now reports of houses taking out their front lawns and growing corn fields in their front yards to help feed the chickens and the illegals.”

    Look, if we are ever going to achieve energy independence, we have to let illegals grow corn in their front yards, like the over-crowded house on Zimbro Ave, in Cavalry Run. With all of the corn going to make ethanol fuel, there is little left for corn-meal, grits, tortillas etc. Have you seen the prices for corn these days?

    During WWII, US (legal) citizens were encouraged to grow their own vegetables on any patch of dirt available, so that farm produced goods could be sent to feed the troops. These home-gardens were called “Victory Gardens”. This was patriotic.

    Considering that the US is being invaded by partisans from many countries, and these partisans are sending millions of dollars back to their home-countries, and the Zapatistas controling them, these Front-yard “Libertad” gardens are just patriotism. Of course this patriotism is for their home-countries, not the US.

    Look, they can’t grow their corn in the back yard, no more than they can keep their chickens there. If they do this, they won’t have anywhere to park all of their work-vans, Lincoln Navigators, etc. What do you want, Tortilla riots here, like those in Mexico City?

    (For those in Manassas Park, this is satire)

    Perhaps they’re growing the corn to be used as ethanol in an attempt to create a cleaner environment and reduce global warming.

    There is a county ordinance pertaining to the height of your lawn, over which the county can come in and cut it. Perhaps that could be applied to the corn field situation.

    I’m not too concerned about the corn. I did see a house a couple of years ago in the park with a few cornstalks almost as high as the house. I was more amazed then upset. Livestock is another matter alltogether. There was a house near me with a rooster that crowed nonstop in the morning for almost an hour. Every. Morning. Barking dogs are bad enough but a rooster brings on a whole new meaning to word aggravation. This went on for about a month then stopped abruptly. Rumor has it that one our neigbhors suffering from severe lack of sleep quietly picked it off with a pellet gun one Saturday morning. Haven’t heard nor seen poultry in my neck of the woods (Yorkshire) since.

    If someone is growing corn in the front yard, could it be that they have no room in the back yard? Maybe too many cars and too many people.

    Look at 10131 Lomond Drive. Do you see the trash cans behind the little “blind” they built in the front yard? That’s because the back yard is a parking lot full of cars. So, they don’t have room to put their trash cans in the back.

    By the way did you notice the little light they put on the “blind”. I wonder if my “friends” at Building Code inspected it. Of course if one decides to put a full bathroom in a basement where one did not exist before, that’s okay with them. Unless someone is actually seeing it being built inside the house.

    John Stirrup is right when crime is being under reported. When the folks you call don’t do anything about it, it does get under reported.

    If this were my neighbor, the roster would have “disappeared” one day, and I’d be having Chicken that night. What would they do? Call the police and say “my rooster is missing?” Put up flyers on Telephone poles saying “Have you seen me?” with pictures of the rooster?

    You are probably right especially since the house number is right below the light. They want to make sure their guests have the right house number.

    How the hell does this happen? Remember our zoning clean sweep letter, stated that there would be no exceptions!! We must keep calling zoning on everything we see at “The Manassas Mystery Mansion”, located in West Gate.
    PWC told me, when I went to get zoning approval for an expanded dirveway, that if more than 40% of my lot was covered, I better think about what I would be tearing down or digging up.

    It sounds too fishy to me. I wonder if some of these inspectors are getting some extra money from certain people. It would almost be worth it to call someone from the state to check up on them.

    I think this house needs to be presented to the Supervisors at a BOCS meeting. We need to know the name of the zoning inspector who approved this and why this house meets zoning laws. I think this inspector should appear before the Board and explain himself/herself. Maybe the State Attorney’s office needs to be notified.

    I’ve got a better idea. Maybe we should give the Board a trip to this house and let them see it up close and personal. We should get the zoning inspector to come also along with all the zoning rules.

    Hell, at this point ANYTHING is possible. I’m going to pay a personal visit Monday, to the only county office I can seem to get any action from!!! I must say that office is all about ACTION!!!
    I’m still waiting for the PWCBOS to tell me how a commercial permit was issued on residential property. I asked them this during my three minutes about a month ago. I need to follow up on that. I know there are many many people who hate the “Mystery Mansion” as much as we do.

    Black Americans Should Not Support Illegal Aliens’ False Civil Rights Claims
    Kevin Fobbs

    This summer the U.S. House of Representatives will be holding hearings on what to do about the millions of illegal aliens that are in the United States, including here in the state of Michigan. Blacks in Michigan, Ohio, New York, Georgia and all over America have to be wondering, did we just lose another place in the line of American opportunity on May 1st?
    On May 1st hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens took to American streets to essentially blackmail America into supporting their alleged “civil rights” which sent up at least a half dozen red flags in the black community. I’m quite certain that thousands of black mothers and fathers in metro Detroit – who, by the way, are here in this country legally — who are struggling to obtain a decent education, or affordable housing, or quality health care or a job to support their family just had to wonder why 12 to 20 million illegal aliens think they should suddenly jump ahead of them in hijacking their rights as citizens to the American Dream.
    What exactly is a “civil right”? What must one have been deprived of, and under what conditions are these civil rights to be earned or obtained? There is a marked difference between the blood shed, sacrifice made and the entitlements earned by the black civil rights experience of the 19th and 20th century struggles and the current claims of millions of illegal aliens.
    So as we reflect during Independence Month this July, the civil rights which each black family earned generation by generation, struggling as citizens under threat of lynching, under threat of fire bombings, under threat of murder… but as citizens is being compared to illegal aliens who want “civil rights” that are not only not earned but they aren’t warranted without citizenship at the expense of our citizen’s independence!
    Here we go again…
    This isn’t the first time some folks who were not brought against their will and without the “open and obvious” ability to group them by their skin color to systematically deny their rights tried to pin its “civil rights” entitlement to the coattails of the black struggle for civil rights in the hope that leaders like Rev. Jesse Jackson and millions of black Americans would fall for the rouse. Recently it was gay Americans who claimed several years ago that their struggle was the same as Americans of African decent. It didn’t work.
    Even Rev. Jesse Jackson had to admit to no real connection to the threadbare attempt to compares the gay experience to the black struggle as if by some miraculous transformation they or any other group who had not gone through the same valiant struggles should somehow be awarded a “Civil Rights Badge of Constitutional Entitlement” earned and fought for by generations of African Americans since and even before the Civil War.
    Now comes another group attempting to attach its claims to black civil rights struggles. The illegal alien movement wants to claim that the 14th Amendment protections apply to them and more importantly to the estimated 600,000 anchor babies in our nation that are incorrectly eventually given full citizenship status.
    What is disturbing is that the illegal alien agenda is not a civil rights agenda. The illegal alien agenda attempts to equate evading our border patrols to deserving a civil rights badge of martyrdom. Now 12 to 20 million illegal aliens who for 25 years have simply walked across, swam across, or were driven under cover of darkness across our nation’s border feel they have endured the same comparable experience to the countless harrowing “Underground Railroad” trips made by Harriett Tubman or Sojourner Truth through slave states to convey slaves to freedom.
    Of course there is no logical comparison, but there are some black leaders who attempt to make a connection and in their effort are failing black people when they cheapen their worth. This open support and advocacy for illegal alien rallies which demand more and more American resources, more boycotts, more walkouts… at the expense of far too many black Americans who struggle daily for jobs, decent education and housing is wrong… wrong… wrong!
    Where are the courageous black leaders of a century ago such as Booker T. Washington and W.E.B. Dubois, who urged American industry and businesses to turn to black American workers? Would those same leaders today be seeking support for illegal immigrant labor and their rights over those of black unemployed or young black adults looking for their first job, first home, first opportunity? Is that fair to any American whose forebears came to this country and worked legally to obtain a place in American society?
    I have to ask Rev. Jesse Jackson about his defense of illegal aliens’ rights being put ahead of black Americans who have suffered racism for far too many generations.
    Should the several hundred thousand who marched in Chicago on May 1st be given Rev. Jesse Jackson’s son’s seat in Congress seat because they were loud enough to be heard over the quiet cries of his constituents who have earned the civil right seat on the Freedom Bus? You have to wonder what Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. would say during these summer illegal immigration hearings should they come to Chicago’s south side.
    In 25 years, while illegal aliens have been stealing across the border, black Americans have to be wondering over that same span of time just where are the entry-level jobs for them? Black Chicagoans have to be wondering, with far too many students leaving the public school system each year, should precious educational resources from Illinois or Washington be spent on millions of illegal alien students who by law should not be here, but because some political and black leaders’ fear of breaking a political correctness infraction, black and white American children may and will lose out on educational resources to help level the playing field of their own constituent’s achievement?
    For 12 years I served as a board member in Wayne County, Michigan for one of the largest social service agencies in America. I can tell you right now that I can not think of a single black family who received much needed services in order to help keep their family’s body, soul and spirit together, would have or should have given up their essential financial supports, their job training and their educational benefits which would help get their family to get back on the right track toward raising their family up from poverty so that illegal aliens could benefit from their entitlements.
    I’m sure these families on welfare have to be wondering just how much more should they take from an America that is willing to let millions of illegal aliens blackmail our nation, walk out on the country for a day and demand protections for their families, for their children that the illegal aliens’ own government back in Mexico should provide them… but gladly shows its legal citizens the “Yellow Brick Road” to our nation’s pocketbook.
    Well black America, maybe its time for you to begin a nationwide “Walk In”.
    If millions of illegal aliens can demonstrate on the backs of black Americans, push you out of line, and take the legacy of Rosa Park’s dramatic act of civil disobedience in sitting down for earned civil rights, then take a page from their book.
    If millions of illegal aliens can walk out on America… Black Americans … Let’s “Walk IN” for our civil rights!
    Let’s give our children and our families and our communities and our jobs and our veterans and our legacies a well-deserved “Walk In” and show all Americans what all citizens, and especially black American citizens of our nation can do.
    No, this is not the nation that our true civil rights heroes struggled against racism, and against racial marginalism and against economic deprivation so that maybe, just maybe, in a generation or two their heirs would have an opportunity to succeed and inherit the fullness and richness of the American Dream only to be kicked off the bus and out of the line.
    No, I don’t think there are black Americans who should stand and wait while millions of illegal aliens’ whose only struggle was to cross America’s border and take the birthright of black Americans and their ancestor’s civil rights legacy without a fight, without a comment and without a struggle. We must say no… not this time… not this way… and not to our people.
    Black America send a wake up call to the millions of illegal aliens who want your place in line and leave you still trying to play by the rules. You will stand up and walk into the line. Walk into your civil rights and walk into your jobs, your schools, your hospitals, and your child’s scholarships and into your future. After 300 plus years of struggle, I think black America is entitled to its civil rights. Walk In and Stay In.

    I just saw some corn in a front yard growing on Smoketown Road on the edge of Lakeridge. The corn stalks are about eight feet high. It is a very small patch but it does look strange.

    How about goats? I was talking with a friend of mine and he said the house behind him had about 20 men sleeping uner a tarp in the back yard and they had goats , to eat. Anyone else see goats or hear of anything? They are gone now, including the men sleeping in the back yard.

    I have not seen it here but have heard about it in Southern Mexifornia. Goats and chickens both, in the yards of residential neighborhoods.

    Completely futile to wait until you have an infestation of millions upon millions of roaches to suddenly decide to pick up a can of Raid.

    Our government allowed these people to walk into the country, live and work, and reproduce exponentially. There is no way the problem can be fixed now… especially in this politically correct day and age.

    America will soon be like India and China… completely overrun with people, with a dismal quality of life. Working class citizens will have to compete with illegals and their spawn for a few crumbs.

    Again, this is what our government allowed and it’s too late to try and fix it now.
