Modesto Save our State Supporters Claims Chicanos “Genetically Stupid”;
Nazis Support Rally --- By D.A.A.A. Collective
Things haven’t been going that well for Modesto Save our State
so far. Their protest planned on the 24th of June, as they expected,
as drawn several groups planning on countering them. Both the
Direct Action Anti-Authoritarians (DAAA) Collective, an anarchist
community organizing group, and Aztlan Rising, a
Chicano/Indigenous revolutionary group, have teamed up to fight
these border enforcing, neo-xenophobes. Modesto Save Our State,
while stating on online forums, that they have passed out flyers in
several places, (the author has yet to see any), has mostly stuck to
posting on online forums, largely the SOS forum, and the Modesto
Bee online forum. Meanwhile, the opposition has been out in the
community, getting flyers out, talking to people, and gaining
support.

Modesto Save Our State has generally stuck to the basic critiques of
immigration, “cultural influx is hurting America”, (aka racist
xenophobia), and “printing things in Spanish costs the American
taxpayer”, (aka, hospital visits for immigrants bad, billions for
Iraq war good!). They have made it clear however, at least on the
online Modesto Bee forums, that they don’t want any
“Stormfronter” types showing up to their protest. This wish
was not honored however, when DAAA Collective activists
discovered that members on Stormfront were planning on attending
the Save our State event in solidarity. (View that here:
http://www.stormfront.org/forum/showthread.php?t=301800).

This of course shook up Save Our State a lot, being that they were
even angry that the flyer create by DAAA/Aztlan stated that SOS
protests had been “supported by neo-Nazis”, in the past.
This of course showed that neo-Nazi support for SOS is, and
continues to be, the norm. With this black eye, Save our State posted
up again on the Modesto Bee forums, (although not on the Save our
State forums, why is unclear), a statement simply telling neo-Nazi
groups not to show up. It also asked people to not bring signs that
brought up ‘racial’ issues.

However, on the Modesto Bee forums recently, a Modesto Save Our
State supporter had this to say about Chicano and Latino parents
who allowed their kids to skip out of school in protest on May 1st.
“[The march]…contained illegals and other criminals, the
genetically stupid that let their kids miss school for the day and
others all of whom didn't realize that they were hurting themselves
more than anyone else." View the thread here:

Save our State isn’t winning any points. First, they get angry that
people make the connection between Nazis supporting them, and
say that this is false. Then, Nazis in Modesto support them. Then,
SOS states that while the Nazis might be racist, they aren’t, and
then they go and write things like this. For those that believe in a
united working class against white supremacy, capitalism, borders,
and the state, we hope that if possible, you will join us in Modesto,
helping to shut down these bastards!

Saturday, June 24th, 11AM, Modesto CA, Briggsmore and
McHenry Ave, help us stop Save our State! Smash the fascists and
racists, whether they wear white sheets or not!
