Pat Buchanan, the King of the Nativists on cable news, went ballistic over the USA-Mexico Gold Cup game last weekend. I watched it too and was booing the U.S. team almost as much as the pro-Mexico fans were, but for much different reasons:
Noted bigot and MSNBC regular Pat Buchanan has a new column out this morning bemoaning the incivility of soccer fans. Not just any soccer fans, mind you, but the backers of the Mexican national soccer team in their match against Team USA this past weekend for the Gold Cup championship in Pasadena (Mexico won 4-2). As Buchanan sees it, the boos that greeted Team USA from the Mexican soccer fans are proof positive that Mexicans just don't belong in America:
What does this event, in which [Los Angeles Times sports columnist Bill] Plaschke estimates 80,000 fans in the Rose Bowl could not control their contempt for the U.S. team and for the U.S. national anthem, tell us?
We have within our country 12- to 20-million illegal aliens, with Mexico the primary source, and millions of others who may be U.S. citizens but are not truly Americans. As one fan told Plaschke, "I was born in Mexico, and that is where my heart will always be."
Perhaps he should go back there, and let someone take his place who wants to become an American.
By 2050, according to Census figures, thanks to illegals crossing over and legalized mass immigration, the number of Hispanics in the U.S.A. will rise from today's 50 million to 135 million.
Say goodbye to Los Angeles. Say goodbye to California.
Soccer fans behaving disrespectfully? I'm shocked! Shocked, I say!
The USA had a 2-0 lead early in the match and got destroyed the rest of the way. It doesn't matter if Buchanan knows anything about how fans root for their sports team or how much more nationalistic FIFA Soccer is -- it can can turn quickly into riots in OTHER countries,. It's all just an excuse for him to be a very xenophobic man. See, if Joe Arpaio was in Pasadena, he would have set up tents outside the Rose Bowl and tried to deport 80,000 people. That's the place where Buchanan lives. It's ugly and disgusting.
