The Headline Makes It Sound Like the Minutemen Were Rumbling

…when the report implies it was the counter-demonstrators.

Officer Hurt, Several Arrested During Anti-Immigration Rally
…Counter-protesters stood along the sidewalks shouting as anti-immigration demonstrators, including members of the Minuteman civilian border patrol group, marched along Hollywood Boulevard. The Minutemen, many of them carrying American flags, had a permit to march.
Minuteman founder Jim Gilchrist was among the marchers.
Angry counter protesters, some wearing bandannas to cover their faces, yelled at the Minutemen and called them racists.
They also tried to join the march, but since they did not have a permit, police stopped them, sometimes forcefully.

    What anti-immigration rally? What anti-immigration demonstrators? Was there another demonstration the paper didn’t talk about?

  2. Ken, KenKen, KenKen, KenKen ~ they had two hunnert people show up. You weren’t invited?

    I was just wondering what anti-immigration demonstration they were talking about. They seem to be describing the anti-illegal-alien rally that was held recently, but they kept mentioning some “anti-immigration” rally.

  5. Hmmm…perhaps they spun the headline even more than I knew, eh?

    Exactly Ken. Those groups aren’t anti-immigration, they are clearly anti-illegal immigration. Where exactly are all those editors and professional standards we keep hearing about?
