Racists say “Boycott Mexico!”

Really?  I mean, you think this is something you can advocate with any semblance of legitimacy?

As reported in the OC Register,

A coalition of anti-illegal immigrant advocates with a goal of halting American tourism to Mexico are distributing fliers along the San Ysidro border that accuse the country of being aggressive and hostile to the United States and disrespectful of its laws.

Americans United to Halt Tourism in Mexico – formed by Minutemen groups across the country and local groups such as Huntington Beach-based California Coalition for Immigration Reform – is urging Americans bound for sun and fun south of the border to instead visit the U.S. Southwest.

This is the equivalent of a bunch of grandparents telling their grand kids to stay home and watch Wheel of Fortune instead of going to spring break in Cancun. And since the Minutemen are mostly senior citizens anyways…

Lord knows I don’t approve of the U.S. mentality that uses Mexico as a playground for cheap booze and consequence-less hook-ups. But, c’mon, really? The Minutemen?

I’ve got a lot to do today so I’m going to pass up the opportunity to pick holes in their argument. It’s a futile exercise anyway. You can’t argue with a “flat Earth” person, even though you’re right, because your two arguments rest on fundamentally divergent foundations.

And since the bigger story is why this newspaper ALWAYS chooses to print a full story on the movement of a small group of racist lunatics, I’ll just bid you a “good day.”

Good day.
