Interested In A Bit Of Guerrilla Politicking From Home?

America`s anti-immigration enthusiasm (more precisely, anti-illegal-immigration enthusiasm) is apparently sustaining itself fairly well. Jim Robb of NumbersUSA is calling it "The Arizona Fever," but this is clearly a desirable fever!

And it`s no surprise. Even back in the summer of 2006, then-House-Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-IL) publicly acknowledged the disaster, saying

Every state is a border state, and every town is a border town. I’ve just returned from a very informative trip to the southern border, but everywhere I travel around this country, illegal immigration is a top concern.
Obviously, some other individual public figures are well aware of citizens` desperation to squelch illegal immigration, but the party apparatchiks, such as Republican National Committee Chief Dingbat Michael Steele, seem largely oblivious.

So for the last many months, whenever I`ve received a fund-raising letter from any of the national party organizations—and if the request includes a postage-paid return envelope—I`ve tucked a copy of the adjacent George W. Bush or Hillary Clinton peso note, as appropriate, into that envelope and dropped it back in the mail. (To bulk up the envelope, I always enclose the phoney-baloney poll that`s inevitably the pretext for the fund-raiser. I actually don`t fill out such polls, even if they mention immigration as a topic of concern, since I figure my faux peso note is eloquent enough.)

In recent weeks, I`ve dispatched such peso-laden, postage-paid envelopes to the National Republican Senatorial Committee—several times!—and the Republican Governors Association. I also do this to the National Republican Congressional Committee, which supports races for the House, but with a slightly troubled conscience, since it was Republican House members who, in the critical summer and fall of 2006, stood "like a stone wall" (to quote Larry Auster`s apt summary) and refused to even consider the mass-amnesty-and-immigration-acceleration bill S.2611 the Senate had passed that May, thus saving the Republic. However, among the House Republicans are such influential quislings as Indiana`s Mike Pence, so it`s appropriate to send their campaign committee pesos, too.

(Only rarely do I receive donation requests from national Democratic Party organizations.)

But this is just one person sending faux pesos as a guerrilla message. Who knows if my pesos (on which I also write "PLUS, END LEGAL IMMIGRATION," using red ink) ever get passed up the line from the envelope-openers to the big toadies? Presumably it would be much better if lots of us were doing it. THIS MEANS YOU, VDARE READERS!

Please download both the Bush-peso and Clinton-peso JPEG files (archived here and here) to your own computer, so you`ll be ready to roll. Then when you get a begging letter from one of the national committees, print what you need. (In my experience, those JPEG files automatically print two images per 8.5" X 11" page.) If you use the backs of already-printed pages from your recycle bin, your only cost will be toner or ink for your printer.

These peso notes have been around for years. Unfortunately, I don`t know whom to credit for their inspired creation. If that person reads VDARE, perhaps he or she can give us an updated version of the Democratic one, with Wonderboy`s mug in place of Hillary Clinton`s.
