For the first time, the Minutemen, Tea Party group, and the 912 group joined together to stand up against illegal immigration in America! The Golden Gate Minutemen, the Pleasanton/NorCal Tea Party and the SF Bay 912 groups combined together to protest the mostly illegal May Day immigrant labor marchers in San Francisco, May 1st, 2010.

During my past four years as a Minuteman in the SF Bay Area I've been to many protest. But this one was by far the most vile display of "in your face" group of "immigrants" that I've ever seen.

Ignited by the recent passage of Arizona's immigration law, fueled by many Democratic politicians, left wing, communist and socialist groups, and spurred on by the liberal media, these marchers took aim at us tax paying American Citizens.

The large group of mostly foreign nationals who are living illegally in the United States, were emboldened by their large numbers, and their arrogance was obvious. They carried signs with swastikas on them, communist flags, and I've never seen so many signs, shirts and hats with their hero "Che Guevara", the racist Cuban revolutionary and self appointed executioner during the Cuban revolution. The number of Mexican and country flags easily outnumbered American flags. And most of the literature being distributed or sold at their event, was Socialist and Communist in nature.

They chanted "racist go home" as they advanced to the barricades that the police placed there to protect us from harm. We were forty and they were two thousand. Joined by many radical left Americans (what else would you expect to find in San Francisco these days), it was obvious to us that this crowd despised us. They had "pre-judged" us as racist, neo-nazis , white supremacist and anti immigrant, just because we want the United States borders secured and illegal immigration stopped. Not only was this far from true, but to me, the true racism was directed at us by them.

We stayed two and half hours, enduring there shouts, slurs, middle finger gestures and dirty looks, in a country that is ours, and in a state that we pay taxes to. All so many of these people can eat, get an education, get medical care, and pay rent - on our dime. And San Francisco welcomes illegal aliens with open arms, having declared itself a "Sanctuary City" for these foreign nationals in 1989.

The Police escorted us to the parking lot, or surely this crowd of "harmless people", "here just to make a living and feed their families", surely would have attacked us. Only in America could non citizens be placed ahead of Citizens who were born here, lead good honest lives, and pay taxes to keep America safe and secure.

I'm disgusted at what the United States of America has become over the past 30 years.
