The Un-Fair Campaign claims they are an anti-racism campaign. Are they, or are they an arm of the liberal/progressive agenda seeking more votes for the Democratic party? The truth of this is revealed in the links they provide on their website and the organizations they condone and support.
This series of posts will take their website, external link by external link, and explain who the organizations are that the campaign supports, reveal the revisionist historical claims being made and add the details that have been omitted, expose their agenda, and debunk the myths they form the campaign around.
On their website, click on “Taking Action.” The reader is urged to “Use the resources listed below to learn more.” The first resource is labeled “Learn how white privilege has historically disadvantaged people of color.” And when the reader clicks on that link they are directed to the AltoArizona website.
AltoArizona, in their own words, “is a hub for the vibrant international migrant rights movement opposing the hateful legislation and demanding full human rights in the state.” They are a pro-immigration (legal or illegal), pro-amnesty group. and here are their demands:
1. Reassert the federal government’s exclusive control over immigration law by making clear that state and local police do not have the inherent authority to enforce immigration law.
2. Immediately suspend and terminate all police-ICE partnerships, including 287(g) agreements and the so-called “Secure Communities” initiative.
3.Direct the Department of Homeland Security to refuse to take custody of anyone charged with violating provisions of SB 1070.
So why would their website be linked on the Un-Fair Campaign’s website? Is it racist to uphold the Federal and State laws on illegal immigration? Should our country have completely open boarders without an immigration process? Take some time looking over AltoArizona’s Partners list. Obviously the Un-Fair Campaign wanted the reader to spend time on that website, or they wouldn’t have linked it. Follow the links. For example:
Un-Fair Campaign -> AltoArizona -> Code Pink
You can read more about Code Pink here: “During the last week of December 2004, Medea Benjamin announced that Code Pink, Global Exchange, and Families for Peace would be donating a combined $600,000 in medical supplies and cash to the families of the terrorist insurgents who were fighting American troops in Fallujah, Iraq. In an article dated January 1, 2005, the online publication Peace and Resistance reported that Rep. Henry Waxman had written a letter addressed to the American ambassador in Amman, Jordan to help facilitate the transport of this aid through Customs.”
“Code Pink is an organizational supporter of the Free Gaza Movement (FGM). Another noteworthy FGM backer is the Progressive Democrats of America.”
“Code Pink receives financial support from the Tides Foundation, the Streisand Foundation, and the New Priorities Foundation.”
Code Pink is just one of many supporters of AltoArizona. You will notice an ongoing trend regarding the funding of various groups and websites the Un-Fair Campaign condones, supports, and encourages the reader to visit. Please ask yourself, “Why does the Un-Fair Campaign link this website? Is this something we Duluthians support?”
