Pomidor Quixote (With Andrew Anglin)

Look, pal. America is a country of ideas and these ideas are pretty simple:
Be polite to the people replacing you and work work work work to pay for your replacement.
If you don’t embrace these ideas, you’ll have to pay up.
It’s now against the law in New York City to threaten someone with a call to immigration authorities or refer to them as an “illegal alien” when motivated by hate.
The restrictions — violations of which are punishable by fines of up to $250,000 per offense — are outlined in a 29-page directive released by City Hall’s Commission on Human Rights.
It’s not what you say, it’s the way you say it. In this case, it’s your motivation for saying it.
Even if the person someone refers to as an illegal alien really is an illegal alien, if that someone was motivated by hate, they’ll have to pay up to $250,000 for their horrible crime.
But how can they know if hate was the motivation?
How can hate be the actual motive though? What makes people hate?
“‘Alien’ — used in many laws to refer to a ‘noncitizen’ person — is a term that may carry negative connotations and dehumanize immigrants, marking them as ‘other,’” reads one passage of the memo. “The use of certain language, including ‘illegal alien’ and ‘illegals,’ with the intent to demean, humiliate, or offend a person or persons constitutes discrimination.”
The directive goes on to list several examples of acts and comments that would run afoul of the restrictions, including harassing people over their accents or grasp of English, or wielding the threat of a call to Immigration and Customs Enforcement as a tool of hate.
Remember, you can’t mark anyone as “other” because we’re all just The Human Race.
Let’s see their examples of things punishable by up to $250,000.
“A hotel prohibits its housekeepers from speaking Spanish while cleaning because it would ‘offend’ hotel guests or make them uncomfortable,” reads one hypothetical.
“An Indian immigrant family complains to their landlord about mold and cockroaches in their unit. The landlord tells them to ‘just deal with it’ and threatens to call ICE if they file a complaint in housing court,” reads another.
“A store owner tells two friends who are speaking Thai while shopping in his store to ‘speak English’ and ‘go back to your country,’ ” reads a third.
How can they even write something like that in current year?
They just implied that Spanish-speaking people are more likely to work as housekeeping staff in hotels instead of being guests in the hotels, and that Indian families are likely to only be able to afford cockroach-and-mold-infested places!
The Commission on Human Rights made clear that the directive is, at least in part, a rebuke of federal crackdowns on illegal immigration.
“In the face of increasingly hostile national rhetoric, we will do everything in our power to make sure our treasured immigrant communities are able to live with dignity and respect, free of harassment and bias,” said Carmelyn Malalis, the agency’s commissioner.
The invaders are a protected class. The directive could be against calling anyone derogatory terms when motivated by hate and one could argue that the intention would be to make everyone more polite, but this is literally just about how Americans treat uninvited guests.
Why are non-whites so protected in white countries? Why are non-Americans so protected in America?
Why are these immigrant communities “treasured”? What do they bring to the table?
Fake Law – For Now
Obviously, this is a fake law, in the sense that the people that passed it understood that it is unconstitutional to fine someone for using rude language or whatever. We do still have a First Amendment.
But this is just a taste of what is to come, when the Democrats gain full control and they stack the SCOTUS and they just say, “oh no, we decided that actually, this doesn’t violate the First Amendment, lol. You owe $250,000 for hurting this immigrant’s feelings, shitlord.”
