Tom Tancredo Enters The Belly Of The Beast

By Greg L | 23 February 2009 | Fairfax County | 30 Comments

Congressman Tom Tancredo, one of the most outspoken defenders of rights for Americans and advocate for enforcing our borders will be at George Mason University on Wednesday to speak to college chapter of the Young Americans for Freedom.  This should be rather interesting.  This bastion of liberalism and open borders is going to go nuts.

The press release sounds fascinating:

Cong. Tom Tancredo will speak on the topic of “Patriotic Assimilation” and the need to oppose Multiculturalism.
It is expected that there will be around 50 people in attendance at this event. These people will consist of students from George Mason University and surrounding schools as well as some professionals and activists from the area.
This event will be held in the Johnson Center of the Fairfax campus of George Mason University on the 3rd floor, meeting room E and is free to the public.
For more information, please don’t hesitate to contact William Zimmerman using the contact information listed above or by visiting http://mason.yafva.org.

This is going to drive the moonbats utterly insane.  I love it.

    I really look forward to being there. This is where we need to take a stand.

    People need to show up to find out what the latest is.

    I want to get the latest from the Congressman who knows how to defend our borders. Unfiltered and un PC.

    I wish they had given more prior notice. I just found out about this Monday and already have commitments Tues, Wed, and Thurs.

    Tancredo is a true Patriot and a true Leader. Because he speaks his mind and doesn’t play into PC agenda, he has been castigated and treated as some type of extremist.

    I have met this man and he has a very gentle, inviting demeanor. He is passionate and anything but hateful. I hope others can go an learn from him.

    Hernandez v. Texas

    At the anti place, they have a thread on the above case. But, there comments are directed at the fact that the Great, former Congressman Tom Tancredo will be speaking at various Universities in the area in the next few days.

    Ironically, after the Supreme Court threw out the murder conviction of Hernandez, he was again found guilty of murder by a jury including Mexican Americans. Had I had anything to do with jury selection, I would have tried to get an all Mexican American jury. I think that they would have been even harder on the guy.

    Also the anti place does not seem to realize, that Mr. Hernandez was a citizen, not an illegal.

    I have just re-read this thread and I am confused. It says to show up as early as 9:00 to ensure you get a seat. It starts at 7:00. Surely they don’t mean 9:00 AM to ensure a seat at 7:00 PM?

    Any word on any other local appearances by Rep. Tancredo? I’m at an event with Bob McDonnell Wednesday evening.

    For those who have not yet read his book “In Mortal Danger,” I recommend it highly. Two thumbs up.

    Hello Sanford,

    There will be no other appearances by Rep. Tancredo in the NoVA area in the near future.

    However, we are hosting him at two of our other chapters in VA - Virginia Tech and Liberty University.

    I do know that those are a bit of a distance, but we are always hosting well known speakers. If you email me at william.zimmerman@yafva.org, I can keep you up to date.

    Also, we have updated the chapter website at mason.yafva.org. All of the event information has been uploaded.

    Thanks!

    I’ve started reading Pat Buchanan’s “State of Emergency.” It seems like a good read as well.

    Oklahoma House passes sovereignty bill
    Path set for other states seeking to reassert constitutional rights

    ——————————————————————————–

    By Jerome R. Corsi

    Oklahoma Republican state Sen. Randy Brogdon
    NEW YORK – Oklahoma’s House of Representatives is the first legislative body to pass a state sovereignty resolution this year under the terms of the Tenth Amendment. The Oklahoma House of Representatives passed House Joint Resolution 1003 Feb. 18 by a wide margin, 83 to 13, resolving, “That the State of Oklahoma hereby claims sovereignty under the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States over all powers not otherwise enumerated and granted to the federal government by the Constitution of the Untied States.”

    The language of HJR 1003 further serves notice to the federal government “to cease and desist, effectively immediately, mandates that are beyond the scope of these constitutionally delegated powers.”

    The sponsor of the resolution, state Rep. Charles Key, told WND the measure was a ‘big step toward addressing the biggest problem we have in this country – the federal government violating the supreme law of the land.”

    “The Constitution either means what it says, or it doesn’t mean anything at all,” Key said. “The federal government must honor and obey the Constitution, just like the states and this citizens of this country are obligated to do, or our system of government begins to fall apart.”

    The Ninth Amendment reads, “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.” The Tenth Amendment specifically provides, “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

    As WND reported, eight states have introduced resolutions declaring state sovereignty under the Ninth and Tenth Amendments to the Constitution: Arizona, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, Oklahoma and Washington.

    Analysts expect 12 additional states may see similar measures introduced this year, including Alaska, Alabama, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Nevada, Maine and Pennsylvania.

    Key argued that whenever “we allow the federal government, or any other government entity, to violate the Constitution, we destroy the Constitution one piece at a time.”

    “We have gone so far down that path that the Constitution is hanging by a thread right now,” he said.

    Last year, the same resolution introduced by Key passed the Oklahoma House, but the floor leader in the Senate, Democrat Sen. Charles Lassiter, used his authority to block consideration of the measure on the Senate floor.

    But state Sen. Randy Brogdon has sponsored comparable legislation, and he told WND the “chances are excellent” it “will be passed in the Senate this session.”

    Brogdon said his bill, SJR 10, has made it out of committee and will be heard on the Senate floor in the next couple of weeks. The lawmaker said he will double-track HJR 1003 to increase the chances one of the sovereignty resolutions gets to the Senate floor.

    “We going to work Rep. Charles Key’s bill through the committee,” Brogdon said, “and our goal in the Senate is to use HCR 1003 as the final bill.”

    Brogdon told WND he feels confident Democrats in the Oklahoma Senate will not be able to block the sovereignty measure this year.

    “Last year, the Democrats in the Senate were able to veto consideration of Rep. Key’s bill,” he said, “but this year the Republicans are in control of the Oklahoma House and the Oklahoma Senate, for the first time in Oklahoma’s history.”

    Oklahoma was the only state in the 2008 election in which every county voted for the Republican presidential candidate, Sen. John McCain.

    “The Democratic leadership in the state legislature has been outside the mainstream of the Democratic Party for decades in Oklahoma,” Brogdon said. “We finally turned the corner in 2008, with Republican majorities in both House and Senate.

    “We still have a Democratic governor in Oklahoma,” Brogdon said, “but we hope to change that in 2010.”

    Brogdon is widely being mentioned as a Republican candidate for governor in 2010.

    Key crafted his resolution so it takes effect once the Oklahoma Senate passes the measure, even without the governor’s signature.

    Asked whether Oklahoma’s Democratic Gov. Brad Henry would sign a sovereignty resolution, Brogdon said he was confident the governor would do so.

    “I believe the governor will have to sign the sovereignty resolution the state legislature passes,” he said. “How do you turn down states rights? If you are the governor, how are you going to stand before the people of Oklahoma and say, ‘I don’t want to support your state sovereignty under the Tenth Amendment?’”

    Henry’s office did not immediately respond to WND’s request for comment.

    Brogdon was not equally sure Henry would instruct Oklahoma’s attorney general to enforce the sovereignty resolution, in what might be interpreted as an act of defiance against the Obama administration.

    “Phase Two will be to get a Republican governor in the state capital that understands the Constitution and respects the rule of law,” Brogdon said.

    “We need an attorney general in Oklahoma that will enforce this sovereignty resolution once it is passed.”

    Brogdon explained that Oklahoma is on track to receive about $900 million from the $787 billion economic stimulus deficit-spending bill Obama signed into law last week.

    “Governor Henry has his hand out for the Obama stimulus money,” Brogdon said. “But there are a lot of us in the Oklahoma legislature that do not want the federal stimulus money because we fear the strings that are certainly going to be attached to the $900 million. We might end up in subsequent years with a $900 million entitlement program hole in our budget for years to come, just because we took the Obama economic stimulus money this time around.”

    Resolutions by state legislatures are a lot of sound and fury, signifying less than nothing. The feds laugh at them.

    Prior to this post, I had never seen anyone call YAF a bastion of liberalism and open borders. It used to be quite different when I was in school, but, alas, that was quite a few decades ago.

    Hey NoVA Scout,

    I definitely understand where you are coming from. He was actually referring to George Mason as a “bastion of Liberalism and open borders.” Those words are links to other posts in his blog.

    YAF is still solid. I hope that we can see you at the event.

    This will probably cover the largest political debate in the next few years. How to handle immigration. And that does tie into budget deficits.

    Are members of the board of supervisors going to the event?

    Anonymous,

    You are right! I know that a lot of people from PWC and Manassas will be there, but I have not heard from any of the Supervisors.

    They are indeed invited - if anyone has any contacts in their offices, it would be great to get them out.

    I look forward to seeing you at the event.

    Now the crazies on the other site are doing bad math in trying to distort the housing crisis in Prince William compared to other counties. When someone pointed that out by showing their exaggerations by proving it with simple math - all of the sudden his comments seem to have been summarily deleted!

    At “The other site” right as we speak it is being disproved their claim that the resolution is the cause of the foreclosures in Prince William County. There are two threads devoted to this, where people who can do math and are smart are disproving them - even with one of them being censored off the site apparently.

    DPortM:

    Congressman Tancredo gave about a 45 minute talk on why it is important to reject the “cult of multiculturalism.” He referenced Samuel Huntington’s book, “Who We Are,” throughout the speech to explain what the “cult” of multiculturalism is, as opposed to just “multiculturalism” which, he says, is a good thing. His point is that immigrants must assimilate into the American culture. The implication is that uncontrolled immigration leads to loss of an American culture and the Balkanization of the country into competing interests based upon ethnicity.

    A question and answer session lasted about 1/2 hour. Some obviously unfriendlies were in attendance trying to trip him up by parsing and misrepresenting what he said. He handled it quite well, then scooted.

    [You know, some folks are going to think I’m talking to myself]
