No Meat Monday: Show Illegal Alien Employers a Day w/out Our Biz

You have a way to answer the illegal aliens in a counter-protest on Monday. My friend, Dan Stein, of Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) has an excellent idea: Meatless Monday.
If you are a vegetarian or a practicing Catholic who doesn’t eat meat on Lenten Fridays, this shouldn’t be hard. And for the rest of us carnivores, we need to send a message to illegal aliens and their employers.
On Monday, Tyson and other meat-packers (Seaboard, Cargill, Hormel, etc.) are giving their alien employees the day off to protest necessary immigration reform. They want to show us what a day without the “services” of illegal aliens would be like.

On Monday, Just Say “No” to Official Meat of Illegals

Let’s show them what a day without the customer base of law abiding U.S. citizens would be like. DON’T BUY OR EAT MEAT ON MONDAY! Adds Dan Stein:

Call Seaboard at 1-800-262-7907, Cargill at 1-800-CARGILL (227-4455), Hormel at (507)437-5611 and Tyson at (479) 290-4000 on Monday to let them you are boycotting them for supporting illegal immigration.

Time to take back our country. And by the way, if we really saw a day without illegal aliens, we’d see a day with less taxes taken out of paychecks to pay for the services they are leeching and usurping courtesy of the American taxpayer.
Since we won’t see that, Monday will hardly show us what a day without illegal aliens would be like!

Hit their aiders and abettors the only place we can for now — in the pocket book. They understand that. If enough people will follow Debbie’s advice here, it will hurt! They will hear from us for a change.
I still can’t get over the nerve they AND their employer’s have. Here illegally, protesting against a government that is not theirs, and all aided and abetted by their employers and the federal government. If they would have had this kind of nerve while they were in Mexico with their own government, maybe they wouldn’t need to be here now.
Oops, forgot it’s that reconquista thing.

It would also be a day withut stolen cars, graffitti, loud mariachi music, public urination, overcrowded mass transit systems, low student achievement scores, etc.

Craig C on April 29, 2006 at 12:06 am

That is the only option left for law -abiding, hard-working, tax-paying Americans. Boycott these traitors.
I am a vegetarian, but for my part, have already boycotted Walmart (and told them why)! But, this is not enough. When rubber-meets-the-road, traitors from US civil services needs to be cleaned up, starting with Jorge! Comprende?

In my area I can buy meat and eggs direct from the farm,as well as butcher shops that get their
meat from local farmers.You can’t beat the
quality and freshness,as well as supporting
real Americans.

I know alot of people are watching this website. For the record, I am not an anarchist, Libertarian, Independent, or Democrat/Communist. I’m just a Republican like most everybody else here. I also don’t believe in creating a new political party — too late for that now. I support Bush to the extent he makes that possible. The illegal immigration issue, for now, is a political problem and should be handled as such. What I am suggesting though is that if the amnesty plan goes through that we replace each and every Republican with new Republicans who share our views in the next elections.
beretta, you lucky dog!

God how do you fucking small-minded, whining & scared silly rubes manage to get yourselves out of bed in the morning?
Mommy I’m scared, there’s an illegal alien hiding in my wardrobe.
Oh daddy, help me, Islamo-fascists are oppressing my freedom, I can’t manage to eat my huge fat-as-fuck American breakfast.
I’m surprised you panic merchants ever leave the house, let alone cross the road.

Nortcliff on April 30, 2006 at 7:09 am

But what about the rest of the year; the 364 other days?
Fact is, few Americans are going to do grunt work in either the Ag industry, food processing industries, domestic work industries or food service industries.
Maybe what’s needed is an EU solution; simply get rid of border barriers, between the US Canada and Mexico.
YES! THAT’S THE SOLUTION. WHY DIDN’T WE THINK OF IT FIRST?! (sarcasm for those who don’t get it)

Plantagent_Palliser on April 30, 2006 at 10:35 am

They seem to come out on Sundays. Interesting comments. One can learn much from the opposition. If you care about the illegal aliens then enlighten as to how we are wrong.
If I were living in Mexico, poor, and had a family to feed, would I try to cross the border into the US? Yes, I would and whether it was legal or not. Not all are coming here for that reason but we all understand that for the ones who do. But even so, they must be turned back. Can you devine the future beyond breakfast and see why?
Is every Arab/Muslim evil? No, of course not. Should even those who are decent and hard working be allowed to immigrate to the US by the multiplied thousands? No, they should not. The fact that anyone needs an explanation of why not is amazing to me.
Tell us why we are wrong. I want everyone to see your reasoning clearly.

Well I do not keep up with the news much. But I just found out yesterday about it. I am mad about it. Yes My husband work at tysons here shelbyville but they are still going to run on Monday That is not what I am mad about. The thing I am mad about is if it was one of us meaning an amercian U.S.A citzen and we walked out we would be fired.

bear47001 on April 30, 2006 at 7:22 pm

Danny: what exactly do you have against what Paraclese is saying here?

Manatoch on April 30, 2006 at 8:57 pm

Plantagent_Palliser said, “Fact is, few Americans are going to do grunt work in either the Ag industry, food processing industries, domestic work industries or food service industries.”
Fact is, Americans will do the grunt work, just not for substandard wages the illegals work for. Too many businesses are just as guilty as illegal aliens.

The_Man on May 1, 2006 at 12:46 am

Don’t be a hater to Paraclese , Danny. You are a Man of love and peace, not hate.

The_Man on May 1, 2006 at 12:48 am

If there is one thing patriotic Americans should do, just one, is to put Tyson out of business. Can you do it, patriots? Nay, just do it!
(Wish I was not a vegetarian, but gor my part, have boycotted Walmart and have told Walmart why).

That is one of the most moronic “actions” I can think of to “protest” immigrants taking the day off. Did you get it direct from the moron-in-chief himself?
How will that “action” do anything to make your “point”? Do you think anyone will notice that no meat was purchased on Monday? Followed by double the purchases of meat on Tuesday?
The “meat” you wish to boycott was created days, even months, ago. For corporations like Tyson, etc. the meat not purchased Monday, accounting-wise, is off the books by now.
Try thinking for yourself instead of reading idiotic Republican (or Democrat) talking points. or, maybe you were “thinking for yourself”.
So sad.

Sky-Ho on May 1, 2006 at 8:51 am

Hmm..it’s hard to know where to start with this stupidity.
Do I bother explaining that immigrants work in all segments of the agriculture industry so boycotting one segment (meat producers) while supporting another (arable producers) is, therefore, pointless? Cargill even does both. (So when you called to tell them you’d bought a salad sandwich instead of a pastrami on rye did they laugh in your face or did they wait until you’d hung up?)
“Yeah, but they’ll notice a dip in profits,” you say. Yes, I’m sure they’ll really be scratching their heads over the economics of this problem.
Problem: some anti-immigration nutcases stop purchasing meat for a day.
Solution 1: Ouch! I know: I’ll fire all the immigrant workers I have that are earning less than the minimum wage and employ a bunch of lazy Americans who want better than the minimum wage plus benefits to do the same job. Yes: that’ll improve my bottom line!
Solution 2: I politely smile at the nutcases and continue to strive to bring cheap agricultural products to 290 million consumers.
Hmmm….choices choices….
You’re also forgetting the wide range of industries that the immigrants cover. Why don’t you kill two birds with one stone: tell your readers to boycott *all* agri products and chew on the lawn instead, that way you won’t be supporting big bad agribusinesses and you won’t need to call Julio to cut the grass for you.
I think you need to stop ranting, go away and think about what you really want here. Listening to a conservative arguing for social justice for American workers is laughable. What next: reverse the tax cuts? No more trickle-down economics? Increase the minimum wage? All very sensible ideas and therefore not something I expect Debbie to support any time soon. Meanwhile, arguing for the mass deportation of immigrants is a position taken by extreme right-wing parties like the National Front in both France and Britain. They are regularly (and quite rightly) stomped on in national elections for their jingoism and xenophobia. Do you really want to throw your hat into that ring?
Once you stop & think, you’ll reach the conclusion that it has less to do with your misguided ideological view of the world than with the hard-nosed economics of the situation. Whether we like it or not, we live in a global economy and we need to equip ourselves to succeed in that environment. This nation cannot succeed by pretending it lives in a little bubble where Americans do all the nation’s work and yet we somehow magically produce goods and services that compete with foreign providers.
The nation is financially beholden to foreign buyers of our ever-increasing national debt who are growing increasingly concerned about the ability of the US consumer to turn the nation’s finances around and you’re advocating increasing consumer costs while at the same time pricing our goods out of the market. Lord only knows what you’re going to do when those same foreigners decide that the Euro is a more stable currency of last resort…then things will really get out of hand. This nation was built on immigrants and it’s still supported by immigrants. Be thankful: other western countries aren’t so lucky and they pay the price, particularly in Europe, with lower growth in GDP and higher government subsidies.
Please try to think of something sensible and constructive to contribute to the immigration debate rather than an idiotic, nonsensical idea like telling people not to eat a hamburger on Monday.
If you can’t do that, you need to stop betraying your ignorance here and go compete for a job mowing lawns where you can actually add to the country’s financial wealth.

Andrew Ross on May 1, 2006 at 5:39 pm

I don’t agree with 99% of what you say. Whenever I look at your big “hero” Bush, I think of things like this: Man, I’d like to chop off his f’ing head, that evil %$#@&*^!!!
BUT I have to say that I actually agree with this post. Yes, I am a total bleeding heart liberal – but one that believes in taking care of OUR OWN first. We’ve got plenty of problems here without taking on those of Mexico.
But one suggestion to you Righties…an honest suggestion, ok?
Just leave the whole “CRIME” thing out of it. It makes you sound like a bunch of racists. Same thing with the schools. Yes, we all know that there’s some crime there and that illegals are using up various resources. But that’s not even the point.
The point is THE RULE OF LAW. If we as a country decide we want to increase the number of LEGAL aliens ten-fold, a hundred-fold, or a thousand-fold…fine. We can do that. But until then, the law’s the law. Why are we even having this discussion? It’s all about corporate profits, that’s why.
And there lies the solution: FINE the living daylights out of those corporations and they’ll stop hiring them. Then we don’t even have to worry about the 10 zillion buses to deport them. They’ll all go back the same way they came in.
Now, if I could only get y’all to come around to my way of thinking about everything else!

Emeyecrookedletter on May 2, 2006 at 12:35 am

Disagree with Andrew Ross. Doing nothing is what is pointless. Anything, however trivial it may seem, is better than sitting on our keesters any longer. Too many Americans are sending the wrong message to Washington when they do nothing. To date, the only ones willing to make a stand has been the illegals. By doing SOMETHING tangible, it tells our Reps in Congress the legal Americans are beginning to get riled up. Frankly, you sound like an illegal alien employer but I could be wrong?
Agree in part with Emeyecrookedletter, but the problem is that it is already against the law for them to be here and for employers to hire them. We just can’t get the government to enforce the law. They refuse to do it. President Bush himself is actually aiding and abetting a criminal enterprise. If only they would do as you say!
The cheapest way to get rid of them would be to fine and give mandatory jail sentences to employers who knowingly hire an illegal. Then cut off all social services to non-citizens. If there were no jobs and no social services then they would dwindle back across the border or starve. But again, our d@mn government has neither the will nor the inclination to do it.
I’m not a “hater” either. My job allows (forces) me to travel throughout Europe and parts of the Orient. I have seen first-hand what awaits the US and it is rather frightening to be honest. As sorry as I feel for the worlds poor, Americans simply cannot bear the weight of the world’s problems — we have too many of our own! The Mexican people and others must go back and deal with their own governments just as we must do. In all honesty, what is going on now has global ramifications. If the US succumbs to this, it is estimated that once the amnesty plan passes, the illegals will bring their families from Mexico in (which they will be able to do legally) and that their population in the US could rise to the tune of 80 million people very quickly. What is left of the social security system will collapse and social services will go bankrupt. And it gets worse from there.. violence will be the end result as people are forced to clash over meager resources. One need look no further than Europe. They are having huge ethnic problems that our media will NOT report because it’s “politically incorrect” to do so.
Thank you

Paraclese on May 2, 2006 at 1:21 am

not to defend the meatpackers. but they did not give their employees the day off. they anticipated a massive sick call and scheduled their plants for downtime; otherwise, they’d have been sitting there with hundreds of thousands of cows and pigs they couldn’t kill. the receptionist was probably frazzled because he or she was fielding hundreds of calls from employees who were calling in sick so they could attend the rallies.

gjdodger on May 2, 2006 at 9:33 am

Paraclese: What are you talking about? The huge “racial” problems in Europe? I am an American immigrant living in Spain. I came here on a student visa and I aoverstayed my visa a year ago. Then, the current government of Spain said any illegal immeigrants (which I was) who had been there for two years, had a job, and no criminal record, could have work permits. Around half a million were approved this way. The majority of them were peoople from South America. I really think I was the only white American to take advantage.
You say that there are huge racial problems here in Europe that the media does not report? Prove it. I live here in Madrid and I see Spainiards, and immigrants (Eastern European, American, South American) interact on a daily basis with absolutely NO incident. Yes, there are some here who are against the immigration law (mostly former Franco Facists) but they are the minority.
In a global economy, a country needs LEGALIZED low skilled alien workers who will do the jobs no one else will. Legalize them, pay them the minimum wage, and they will assimilate. When they are not legal and have to hide in the shadows they form their own communities and they will never assimilate.
Some complain, I go to the corner store and everyone speaks in Spanish. Solution: Learn Spanish! It looks great on your resume, trust me. I learned it here in Spain and it was the best thing I ever did. With my English and Spanish I will always have a job at my disposal.
I get the feeling most of you all here are racists. Sit down, talk with some of these immigrants. You will see they come here to live the american dream, and instead of welcoming them you all spit upon them. I say shame on all of you, the only true Americans live on reservations. Get over yourselves and move on.

calebmills99 on May 2, 2006 at 2:14 pm

“What are you talking about? The huge ‘racial’ problems in Europe?” “I get the feeling most of you all here are racists.”
Are you kidding me?? I don’t know whether to take you seriously or just ignore you. I could fill your entire screen with data. But since you have already labeled us as racists (I knew that rant was coming) effectively telling me that anything I present will be discredited, I’ll let you do a little research on your own. It won’t take long, maybe ten minutes? Or even better, get out of the tourist areas and “mingle.”
Were you aware that the Italian government is actually PAYING Italian women to have Italian babies? It is so bad now in Germany that they are considering the same thing. Those racist governments! Can’t we all just get along? What with the ‘incitement of racial hatred’ laws in much of Europe to quell any discussion on this topic one would think so. And I hear the new ‘incitement of religious hatred’ laws being considered (set up for… you guessed it — Islam) that should help too.
And we need more work even here in the US. In the words of Jose Angel Gutierrez from the University of Texas at Arlington:
“We are millions. We just have to survive. We have an aging white America. They are not making babies. They are dying. It’s a matter of time. The explosion is in our population…”
Very true Jose. A serious discussion on racism needs to be had that is certain. The dispossession merchants need to be exposed.

Oh, a proposito hablo espanol tambien. Pero no lo aprendi en Espana. Docto el sur justo de la frontera en Mexico.
Arghh. I can’t get these pages to format right.
Among other languages, I speak a little Spanish too.

Paraclese on May 2, 2006 at 3:41 pm

Hey paraclese, I don’t live in the tourist areas. I live near Barajas (in the suburbs) in Madrid. No tourists here, trust me. You said there is racist stuff going on all the time. That is a lie. Yes, European governments would pay their citizens to have babies because the birth rates are so low. Now they need immigrants to keep their economies going. \
By the way, your Spanish is crap.
Todos ustedes son racistas, homophobos, y xenofobos. Que se vayan todos a la mierda!

calebmills99 on May 2, 2006 at 5:32 pm

Rabbi Aryeh Spero, Lawrence Auster, and many other Jewish leaders in this country “get it.” I hope everyone who visits this website reads the words of Lawrence Auster at the link below.
The is at the very root of our problem. If we cannot shake this mindset then we don’t even deserve to exist. Europe has shown itself incapable of throwing off this mindset. Hence, the Islamic hordes have used Angel Gutierrez’s approach to taking over Europe piece by piece. This is the reason for paying Italian women to have Italian babies — they are at risk of becoming minorities in their own country, of being controlled by their Islamic immigrants. The same could happen here with South Americans/Mexicans and others.

Paraclese on May 3, 2006 at 1:29 am

One last comment:
Tammy Bruce, for the last week, has done an excellent job of both recognizing and attacking this corrosive mindset that has been used as a weapon against us. A weapon used by the illegals, the Islamists, and the twisted left. Again, it’s a woman (not a man) that has the nerve to expose it and on national radio at that! Bill Oreilly, Sean Hannity, et. al. your silence is deafening.

Paraclese on May 3, 2006 at 2:51 am

Americans did all the jobs before cheaper Mexican labor came here and greedy business men hired them to save a few bucks. Criminalize hiring with real penalties like jail time for CEOs and the problem would vanish.
