Luck of the (illegal) Irish

11 June 2007

What happens when 32 African American and Latino Irish dancing kids hit Dublin…?

That’s the lead story in that well-known vanguard of La Reconquista… Irish Voice Abroad!

Faith and begorrah… how does a New York paper covering everyone’s favorite small European island somehow become an agent for the insidious Mexican plot to overrun the southwest?

My “favorite” insane anti-immigration site, Lone Wacko, reasons like this. The Irish Lobby for Immigration Reform is chaired by the Irish Voice Abroad editor, Niall O’Dowd. O’Dowd was interviewed by RTE, the Irish public radio station. Ergo, according to Lone Wacko, O’Dowd has ties to the Irish government.

Worse yet, being Irish and all, the group seems to possess a lot of native talent for political glad-handing and … surprising for a lobbying group … lobbying. O’Dowd managing to get his photo taken with the mayor of San Francisco and various United States senators (especially — again shocking for a immigration lobbying group — senators interested in immigration reform). All evidence, according to Lone Wacko that the Irish government is behind the whole thing.

But wait, there’s more… The lobbying group was one of the several sponsors of a Sunday Mass in San Francisco, and a subsequent immigration march, featuring those two historically despised groups of Catholic immigrants… the Irish and the Latinos.

For Lone Wacko, this is “proof” of the on-going foreign conspiracy. According to one of his commentators, Latins and Irish hate us for our freedoms.

The Irish illegals are still with us… some of us trace our ancestry back to them… and others to illegals a little further back.

What kind of nation allows a massive influx of people?
