But we don’t want the Irish!
via The Poorman:
A peaceful demonstration yesterday in Riverside against a law punishing those who hire or rent to illegal immigrants was met by a larger, slur-spewing crowd that tried to drown out the protesting speakers from the other side of a police barricade.
After an hour of prayers and speeches, Rivera and the protesters headed up Scott Street, the Burlington County town’s main drag, as hundreds on both sides of the street cursed, spit and shouted at them to leave and never come back.
Some in the crowd were intoxicated. Some waved Confederate flags, while others thrust their right arms up to resemble a Nazi salute. Dozens had signs calling for tighter border control.
As the protesters walked along the center line, police kept the opposing crowd on the sidewalks. When the march ended and the two groups were allowed to mingle, the verbal attacks continued.
Some claimed illegal immigrants took jobs away from citizens. Some said they were angry because some illegal immigrants pay no income taxes. For others, the matter seemed personal.
“You spread germs,” screamed Mary Goff, 32, a lifelong township resident. “You’re ignorant, disgusting and lazy. Go somewhere else and give us back our town.”
(Actually that’s how most of us in San Diego feel about tourists, but we’re polite enough to keep it to ourselves while charging them $54 for a day at SeaWorld)
