A group calling themselves "Oregonians for Immigration Reform" is holding a rally in Salem tomorrow (Saturday) to "honor American heroes [the "Minutemen"] who are volunteering to protect our borders" (read: "Three cheers for xenophobic gun-owners who like to hunt less-fortunate humans!").
Among the fear- and hate-mongers will be "radio talk show hosts Victoria Taft and Richard Sturm and state Rep. Jeff Kropf, R-Sublimity." Apparently, the bigotry of the Columbia County Republicans has worked its way upstream into the Willamette Valley.
Sadly, though, the group claims some Dems among its ranks. If true, is this evidence--I fear it might be--that "liberal" Democrats are only willing to go so far with their progressivism? Let's hope that most of the Lefties in the crowd tomorrow will be booing, not cheering...
