AZ Mexican Republicans Condemn White KS Legislators' Comments

Rudy Acuña warned that Chicano youth "bring the possibility of violence"
to the Chicano movement, and the "Brown Berets" tell "gringos" that "the
streets will run red with the blood of tyrants, who have murdered us
for so long."
SOMOS REPUBLICANS are demanding an apology (Screw them. -- Ed.) from Republican Kansas
legislator, Virgil Peck, when he said it might be good to control
illegal immigration the way the feral hog population has been controlled
— with hunters shooting from helicopters. There are people advocating to shoot the heads off of “illegal Mexicans”, and Peck’s behavior is extremely violent and inappropriate.
We are sick and tired of the bigotry from state legislators who would
rather advocate for violence and shooting people than to focus on reasonable solutions.
Hasn’t Mr. Peck learned from the mistakes of Sarah Palin when she put
what appeared to be gun sight crosshairs over our Congresswoman, Gabby
Gifford’s district? Has he not learned what our Congresswoman stated to
that regard? Fact of the matter, Rep. Peck is also using poor methods of
communication when he said we needed to “shoot people from helicopters
to control immigration”.
In a time of extreme tension and occasional violence over illegal immigration, such as the slaughter of a Mexican-American family in Arizona including a nine-year old girl, allegedly by Minutemen,
elected officials should refrain from the use of violent metaphors.
Such violent metaphors can push some unstable people ‘over the edge.’
Right now we are dealing with increased hate crimes, and Peck’s behavior
in essence advocates for more.
If Representative Virgil Peck does not apologize for his extremist
comments, he will wind up permanently on our unfriendly to Hispanics
list for the rest of his life, and his Kansas legend will be one of
bigotry. We will also send a letter of complaint to all of those who
him, particularly the business communities who are supported by the
Hispanic consumers in Kansas. We are horrified by his remarks and he is
a disgrace to the Party that was founded by Abraham Lincoln.
