Pardon The Pink Flamingo’s snickering, but right now I’m rather enjoying the latest gaff to come out of William Gheen of ALIPAC.
Gheen is a cruel, vicious, vindictive person who says absolutely horrid things about people, then tries to back-track after the damage is done. The Pink Flamingo isn’t even going to bother going into his background, which is rather interesting.
“…William Gheen of Americans for Legal Immigration Political Action Committee (ALIPAC) a self proclaimed leader of the “Illegal Immigration Movement”. He has been refered to as leader, president, national director, CEO, runs and discredited. This is the presentation of a camouflaged chameleon organizer. Gheen has a Master-at-arms mentality that is proper in it’s own environment. However, in the political – social arena it is refered to as Stiff-Arming”. It has been indicated that he is the source (instigator) of unrest in the “Illegal Immigration Movement” by causing havok among other groups. And it shows. This is the “Monkey Wrench” with a self centered agenda! With his abrasive social attitude, if you dissagree with his objective on the ALIPAC web site and else where, then harrasing emails follow….”
This has been a very good couple of weeks for those who adore rational Republican politics. We’ve seen exposes on two of the worst factions out there – Ron Paul (and his little bots) now this!
Even more funner is the way Gheen back-tracked his comments. In doing so, he dug himself in even deeper!
“...Radio host Alan Colmes, who had linked to the interview with right-wing radio host Janet Mefferd on his own radio site under the headline, “William Gheen: Violent, Illegal Activities May Be Needed to Bring Down Obama,” Tuesday evening gave him an opportunity to clarify.
Breathless and agitated, Gheen told Colmes that that 80% of Americans agree with ALIPAC’s position on immigration, and that he himself has so thoroughly demonstrated his commitment to peace that it’s “ridiculous” that anyone would imagine he thought violence might be the only way to stop Obama.
Here’s a sample exchange:
Colmes: “Your words were, ‘violent’ and…”
Gheen: “I never said that was needed. I never said that was needed to bring down Obama like you said on your website.”
Colmes: “Well, tell me what you mean.”
Gheen: “I was reporting the condition of the American people.”
Colmes: “That’s not you said on that show.”
Gheen: “Well, I don’t have to!”
Colmes: “How am I supposed to know what you mean? What am I, psychic? … Mr. Gheen, I’m only repeating your own words.”
Ultimately, Gheen conceded: “I was speaking off the cuff and I should have prepared my comments a little bit better so they would not be exploited by my political opposition.” Colmes objected to the word “exploited,” but let him let him off fairly easy: “The rhetoric you used on this show seemed to probably not reflect what you truly in your heart believe, and thus you may have been misinterpreted, but they are your own words that you did use.”
Those weren’t Gheen’s only words. In the same Monday interview in which he suggested that those who wished to save “white America” from dictatorship might have to resort to violence, he also proposed that a military coup would do the trick.
“I didn’t say just impeachment. I said remove him from office because some people are also leaning to the words ‘treason’ and talking about the military coming in or somebody just coming in taking this guy into some form of arrest if we’re doing this,” he told Meferd.
“What does a nation do when this happens? We may have to try to gather in the streets and demand that Obama step down. But you know when you talk about doing that, you’re gonna gather in the streets of Washington D.C., which where Obama has a support rate of 88% of the blacks and Hispanics who live there.”…”
The Pink Flamingo has a little personal experience with Gheen. He is a bully. He’s one of those spoiled, bigoted, vile anti-immigration “leaders” who has made a career out of hate.
“...A sense of shock and dismay is sweeping across America today as citizens learn of President Obama’s authoritarian decree creating a form of Amnesty for illegal aliens. This act defies existing federal law, the US Constitution, the will of the Congress, and the will of the American public.
“Obama has just created a constitutional crisis by nullifying the US Constitution, existing federal immigration laws, the votes of the Congress, and every vote cast and e-mail sent by Americans who have defeated this Amnesty legislation eight times in the last six years,” said William Gheen of ALIPAC. “This is the death of a nation. This is the fall of the American Republic and the loss of all that our forebears have fought to build and preserve.”
The US Constitution says that the American public is to dictate immigration policy via their elected representatives to the Congress. The public has spoken to elected members who oppose the steps Obama has taken. The election results have been nullified by Obama’s actions, and the US Constitution has been rendered meaningless.
Existing federal laws say that illegal immigrants are prohibited from holding jobs in America and are to be deported when detected. Obama’s orders change existing federal laws to allow millions of illegal aliens to forgo deportation and to take jobs American workers and legal immigrants need.
“We call on every member of the Congress and every presidential candidate to strongly condemn President Obama’s actions today!” said William Gheen. “We call on the American public to get on the phones to the Congress to let them know these orders cannot stand. We need Americans to prepare to take to the streets if necessary to demand the removal of Obama.”
Obama’s orders to stop the deportation of illegal aliens is probably in response to the fact that more illegal aliens are leaving America because of the bad economy and increased enforcement efforts in states like Arizona, Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama, and Indiana. Each of these states reports an exodus of illegal aliens leaving in response to news that existing federal laws will be enforced by state governments.
ALIPAC is calling on Americans of every race, political party, and walk of life to unify in opposition to Barack Obama’s dictatorial actions.
“We will no longer call him President Obama because he has nullified his legitimacy as president,” said William Gheen. “He has declared himself a dictator and a traitor to the Republic. He is violating federal law by aiding illegal immigrants and he is violating the US Constitution by aiding an invasion of America. Obama must be stopped.”
Americans for Legal Immigration PAC is dedicated to peaceful and political resolutions to this crisis, yet we acknowledge that President Obama’s actions have just deprived Americans of their civil rights and political representation….”
Please, pardon me while I laugh (cynically) and mention that I TOLD YOU SO!
