De Niro, Other Celebs Mock Ariz Immigration Law in Pro-Illegal Alien Video

By Debbie Schlussel

Another item for the “Shut Up & Act” circular file and waste removal industry, brought to our attention by longtime liberal commenter “Norman Blitzer.” Actor Robert De Niro–and several of his fellow celebs–don’t believe in secure borders and want illegal alien criminals to roam free in the Great American Abyss.

De Niro, Jessica Alba and has-been C-listers Lindsay Lohan, Steven Seagal, Don Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Cheech Marin, and Danny Trejo all star in this short video mocking Arizona’s immigration law and those of us who actually want to protect our borders and national security.

I wonder–when one of them or one of their children is kidnapped by illegal alien drug smugglers in Phoenix who cut them up, limb by limb–if they’ll still hold this view.  Sadly, that will only happen to the “little people” who don’t live in gated, secure, luxe mansions in the Hollywood Hills.  Someone smoked too many spliffs  . . . and I’m not just talking about Cheech.  I’m talking about all of them. And I wonder how many of them use underpaid illegal aliens to mow their lawns and clean their homes. Plenty, I’ll bet.

De Niro should stick to something he actually knows about . . . like playing Mafiosi and deranged cab drivers. And the others should stick to what they know: bad acting.

The Hollywood types always like to keep illegals around to do dirty work — the Hollywood types don’t want to lose the equivalent of a modern-day slave class.

    It’s not just “Hollywood elite”.
    It’s everybody.

    No more shopping at Wal Mart, no more cheap produce and you are going to have to spent the first few years of your working career as a dishwasher at IHOPS.

    The easiest way to solve this problem is to get rid of the need.

Thank you so much for writing about this! I am appalled!
I watched this (actual) movie trailer earlier. This movie
is only going to create havoc, I feel. It will give an
ok to everyone entering this country a pass.

Of course, I also read an article about NYC allowing a mosque
to be built 2 blocks from the site of 9-11.

What a joke this country is becoming. A joke because the very ideals this country were founded upon are being used against us …how humilating.

cthelight on May 7, 2010 at 12:28 pm

Could not agree with you more Debbie, you are so right on with this story. These phony uneducated actors who live far away from the violence here in AZ make me sick. They should have to live with all the murder, rapes, kidnappings and gangs of drug cartels. Maybe they would like to foot the bill for the lovely people crossing our border everyday. We are broke and scared and have to be mocked by actors, the media and the president. I don’t know how much more I can take!! Why are the people who support this bill so silent??

Thanks Deb, much appreciated.

I’m not sure how effective this video will be for their cause since they end up killing the people they want to convince that illegal immigration is good for America.

Norman Blitzer on May 7, 2010 at 12:41 pm

It’s like that old joke, “a liberal is simply a conservative who hasn’t been mugged yet”, but this isn’t a joke. This is scary.

DR.ROCKS! on May 7, 2010 at 12:48 pm

Lets all cry for the murdering illegals. wtf?

samurai on May 7, 2010 at 1:09 pm

Thanks — gulp — for highlighting this. What a horrific video: sanguinary, violent, appalling, wrong. It’s unspeakably absurd — and intellectually frightening — that all these privileged, pampered, well-fed, toned, tanned, no-talent putative actors are such USA-hating Commie fools. What awful waves of self-detestation they must feel! Oh, and: illegals aren’t “immigrants”, they’re invaders. Let’s not let them co-opt the language to that debased purpose. My grandmother, A”H, was an immigrant: the wait, Ellis Island, medical tests and approval, English, citizenship. When these benighted Hollywood parasites finish sawing strong branches off the American tree, won’t they fall, too?

Dernon Ruton on May 7, 2010 at 1:18 pm

I love the one statement about “we did not cross the borders, the borders crossed us”. this sums it all up. The mexicans and those that trumpet them believe that the southwest belongs to them and not to the U.S. Wake up america before it is too late.

chuck601 on May 7, 2010 at 1:39 pm

There are other vacuous celebs who support the pro-illegal alien, open-borders agenda. One such person is Shakira – who, I.I.N.M., is best known for dancing half-naked in music videos. Another is Ricky Martin of “Livin’ La Vida Loca” fame.

As for “what if the things that happened to the people of Arizona at the hands of illegals happened to these celebs,” something tells me that in most cases their minds would not be changed and they would remain as pro-illegal as ever, just as they toe the politically correct party line on every other issue.

ConcernedPatriot on May 7, 2010 at 1:41 pm

I find the line “deporting them to their own personal hells”, the most idiotic statement of the year. This is the La Raza/MECHA crowd calling Mexico “hell”. WTF? The same people waving the Mexican flag are calling Mexico “hell”. Notice there are no Mexican flags in this video. The La Raza crowd is going through Guilt for living in America. Much like Bill Maher said about Muslims. They are divided and call themselves Americans, much like the Muslims. Mexico is screwed up and some Americans of Mexican decent can’t admit they are in country they prefer over Mexico, however they keep waving the Mexican flag but haven’t lived a day there. This is similar to when the Malcom X thing was big 20 years ago when blacks were talking up Africa and wearing African chains but hadn’t lived a day there either. It goes for anyone who talks up their homeland or motherland and puts down America. They are talkers.
I am of Mexican decent and if I ever waved the Mexican flag in protest then that would be they day I left America. It makes no sense to wave a flag in protest against America and still stay here.

However if you want to see a funny border short video. Here is one of parody of the movie 300.

CaliforniaScreaming on May 7, 2010 at 2:01 pm

Amen, these people do not resemble regular street people from mexico, they have become something different, neither mexican or american but a new breed of ultramacho, stupidly proud, flamboyant mexi-american wannabes. Please do not address these people as “mexicans”

Luis on May 7, 2010 at 2:37 pm

Just back from the pistol range, which was obviously time well spent today. Bringing a knife to a gun fight in Texas, is extremely hazardous to your health.

BonzerWolf on May 7, 2010 at 3:33 pm

Nevada could be the second state to enact an Arizona immigration law. Nevada U.S. Senate Candidate Chad Christensen has filed a ballot initiative for this Novemeber. The prospect of Harry Reid facing this ballot initiative in November when up for re-election will guarantee the final nail in his coffin.

Want KING HUSSEIN OBAMA, MSM, Hollywood elite, La Raza, CAIR and liberals punished? Have ballot issue on November elections. They are the wrong side of this issue by a long shot. They will be on the losing side of elections. If you are in Nevada, get the petition and get people to sign.

How will it look for KING HUSSEIN OBAMA working to overthrow the will of the people when he sends the Justice Dept to overturn the referendum? The illegal alien issue and the health care issue will not go away.

CaliforniaScreaming on May 7, 2010 at 5:51 pm

Well, looks like I’ve been too hard on Normal Blitzer — he deserves credit for bring this to your attention, and you deserve a great deal of credit for writing about it.

I think that what follows from what is going on is that real Americans have to get in the streets also (legally of course) and demonstrate their support of bills that combat illegal immigration. This has to become a litmus test of how we judge politicians and other public figures who state they are conservative. Are they willing to lend their names and their prestige to helping the pro-Americans get out on the street the same as the illegals and their anti-American supporters?

Little Al on May 7, 2010 at 7:29 pm

Arizona: “We’re putting in a law that requires people to carry identification all the time, and if you don’t, we’re taking you to jail.”

Whether you’re a Conservative or not, you gotta admit this sounds like something Stalin would say. Remember when America used to be free? Funny how people are willing to disregard their moral beliefs to bandwagon on something just to be part of the group.

Justbein'reasonable on May 7, 2010 at 7:32 pm

    Not, really. Federal law requires legal residents to carry their green card or other relevant documentation. By your logic, no one should be required to carry a driver’s license or proof of insurance when driving. Also, the comparison to Stalin is inane. The most heinous thing that could possibly happen to an illegal alien is deportation to their home country. Thst does not sound like summary trials followed by executions, being locked up in a labor camp until dead, or even a man made famine. No, this is not the world of Uncle Joe. If Uncle Joe and Beria encountered such border invasions, the people involved would be deemed to be wreckers or foreign counter-revolutionary infiltrators, and dealt with accordingly This is not happening in the United States, despite the fantasies of some. Instead, you have La Raza and MALDEF running interference for the drug cartels and other criminal elements by opposing and actively obstructing even the most moderate of influx controls. The worst thing of all is that legal as well as illegal aliens suffer the most in states, such as Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, and elsewhere. As Debbie noted, actors in such films live in gated security from the problems ordinary people face, and would never have to worry about home/property invasions, kidnappings, robberies, rapes, burglaries, or even catching stray bullets from battling gangs. Leftist tend to be very abstact in their thinking, and often mindlessly recirculate race, gender, and class as the primary motivators of people and groups. Also, it is very hard for them to understand purely criminal elements and bad behavior, since in their view such things arise from inequality and oppression. Leftist who try to think outside of their prefabricated box get shouted down and return to conformity, or if they persist, pariahs. Bill Cosby discovered that in another context.

It’s time to throw another mexican’t flag on the pyre, after I puke on it first.

my typo was not intentional; of course I meant Norman Blitzer; I apologize for the inadvertent typo on his first name.

“Proud to be an Illegal Alien” to the tune of “Proud to be an American.”

Mean Green on May 7, 2010 at 10:48 pm

Wow! usually you get the best parts of the movie in the trailer, than they dump the rest of the crap on you after you shell out your hard earned bucks. Is De Niro and the cast this desperate? This has to be the worst movie preview I’ve ever seen. The acting looks worse than first take floor cuttings, lame writing, stupid script, I mean the works! This is so bad it’s funny…could be the next cult classic!
They f****d with the wrong Mexican?! Gimme a break!

theShadow on May 7, 2010 at 11:03 pm

Why don’t they make a movie and cast all of them as i.c.e. agents? After all, that seems to be the general mindset.

IceNoMore on May 8, 2010 at 3:47 am

From everything I’ve read over the years about Di Niro, I have come to the conclusion that he is an extremely over rated, arrogant and angry little man totally lacking in self esteem.

abob on May 8, 2010 at 6:44 am

Nice work, Norman.

Daniel K on May 8, 2010 at 8:53 am

Let me add my two cents in here and move onto the next topic, to all of you hollywood fellow-travellors let me ask you illiterate jackasses a question, will it be ok if any of you schmucks let an illegal-alien family live with you morons for at least 1 year & get back at me? To you hollywood halfwits and also to you verminist left wingers put your damn money where your mouth is for godsakes and let an illegal-alien family live with your asses!

And as I’ve said a week ago, we need to bring back “HUAC” into the political spectrum in this country and investigate hollywood, the music industry, the government, front-groups, pressure groups, etc. so we can finally know which side these schmucks are on, are they on the side of we the american people, or are they on the side of foreign government(s)?

“A nation is identified by it’s borders, language & culture!”

Sean R. on May 8, 2010 at 10:53 am

Many of them do have illegals living with them. That’s who does the gardening and pool cleaning for slave wages. Of course, the only ones allowed into the homes are cooks and maids and if they’re lucky they get a shed to sleep in.

theShadow on May 8, 2010 at 1:36 pm

Are you guys all idiots? This is the trailer for a tarentino movie. It’s a take on the exploitation films of the 70’s, and it’s supposed to be “so bad it’s funny.” But by all means, keep up the “paranoid patriot” vibe. It’s entertaining.

SMW on May 8, 2010 at 5:43 pm

The highly skilled Federale Machete is hired by some unsavory types to assassinate a senator. But just as he’s about to take the shot, he notices someone aiming at him and realizes he’s been set up. He barely survives the sniper’s bullet, and is soon out for revenge on his former employers, with the reluctant assistance of his old friend Cheech Marin, who has become a priest and taken a vow of nonviolence. If you hire him to take out the bad guys, make sure the bad guys aren’t you!

Pete Bone on May 8, 2010 at 6:17 pm

The director is Robert Rodriguez and I saw no mention of Tarentino anywhere in the credits but if they were going for ‘absurd, over the top, so bad it’s funny’ than it looks like a success 😉
Most violent crimes in California BTW, are committed by illegals, and you call us paranoid?…yeah, well okie dokie there professor, just like you we’ll all pretend, it doesn’t happen.

theShadow on May 8, 2010 at 6:39 pm

Your idea of “National Security” is a joke. You wouldn’t have the infrastructure you have now if it wasn’t for illegal immigrants. 29% of the labourers that built the Twin Towers were illegal immigants. National Security? More like trying to control the masses. I grew up in Ireland learning about America, the Land of the Free and how important free speech was to Americans. I visited there when I was 18 and was disgusted by the police force there who when I needed help as a tourist dubbed me a “foreigner” and refused to allow me access to a police station. The majority of Americans are racist scum.

Yours Sincerely,
Someone with an opinion that actually counts and not a redneck fuck-o with no morals that work in the real world…

I'm Actually From Ireland (Not Irish-American) on May 8, 2010 at 7:33 pm

    Mr. Irishman,

    Crawl out of your bottle and get a clue. A few points:

    “You wouldn’t have the infrastructure you have now if it wasn’t for illegal immigrants. 29% of the labourers that built the Twin Towers were illegal immigants.”

    So what? The Towers would have been built anyway. And without immigration from Arab countries, they might still be there.

    “I visited there when I was 18 and was disgusted by the police force there who when I needed help as a tourist dubbed me a “foreigner” and refused to allow me access to a police station.”

    Nonsense. This never happened. Tourists are not denied access to police stations. They probably thought you were mentally ill (a reasonable deduction, in your case). My suggestion? Don’t visit the USA again.

    “The majority of Americans are racist scum.” Really? Generalize much? Do you have any other views concerning the majority of blacks? Jews? Women? As long as you have entire nations completely figured out….

    We can’t all be as peace-loving as the Irish (boom!), who live in a mono-culture (unlike the U.S.) and have very strict immigration and citizenship laws. I guess the fact that we are most generous country in the history of the world does nothing to mitigate against your mass-hatred for all of us.

    “Sincerely, Someone with an opinion that actually counts…”

    Wait a second. Your opinion counts? I thought you said you were from Ireland?!

    Don Kenner on May 10, 2010 at 12:06 pm

This trailer has been out since that Tarantino Grindhouse flick (2007). Someone just fed you a big plate of bs. . .

Tom on May 8, 2010 at 10:13 pm

All your country is belong to us.

Gah, how can people be so stupid on such a simple topic. It is ILLEGAL to be here ILLEGALLY. It ain’t rocket science.

Amy on May 9, 2010 at 3:51 am

1) This is a real trailer, from a real movie. Yes, this is similar to the trailer that appeared in Grindhouse. That’s the point. The fake trailer was so well received and its director, Robert Rodriguez, decided to make a whole feature film out of it. The movie will be released in September.

2) The movie was filmed last year. The opening of the trailer references Arizona, yeah, but the movie itself isn’t a reaction to the new law.

You may continue the outrage.

People immigrate here illegally because they can’t find work at home. You would probably say, “That’s not our fault,” and continue to guzzle your piss-beer, but you’d be wrong. Our dominance over Latin American markets pretty much makes the U.S. a Feudal overlord over all the western hemisphere. We control Latin America through corporations and other economic factors. We must cease our global-capitalist hegemony in order for people to feel they can live and work in their own country.

gunDy on June 6, 2010 at 11:17 pm

You have got to be kidding me . . Seagal?????? He’s a Sheriff’s Deputy in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana for Pete’s Sake ! ! And Don Johnson . . how sad. Lohan? What a joke! Is this what she considers community service?

I agree with Debbie Schlussel 100%.

When people came through Ellis Island, Americans didn’t have to learn these languages: Italian, German, French and even more recently when some Vietnamese who immigrated (legally), Americans didn’t have to learn Vietnamese.

I also support Arizona’s Law (a State’s Right).

PML on August 20, 2010 at 1:16 pm

No doubt that we have to protect our borders from terrorist, drug smugglers and gangs. Unfortunately the innocent families will be hurt because of this. Not all illegal immigrants are a threat and the movie points this out. They probably should have left out the war with the vigilantes. I knew it would scare some people.

The sad thing is that the southwest, Texas and California was taken from the Mexican people. The US history books call it annexation. If this type of Annexation of territory happened today outside of the U.S. we and other countries would be there to stop it.

Did you know the majority of the illegal immigrants are more of the Indigenous people of Mexico or the Mestizos (Indigenous and Spanish Ancestry)? They are sometimes considered lower class and not treated fairly. They find it impossible to live a decent life in a country where 60% of the economy is controlled by 20% of the people.

WHAT BORDER? Amazing how Indigenous tribes of North America had a border placed on what was their land by European immigrants and now they are told they cannot cross it. If you can be open minded maybe you can see the other’s sides point.

So my conclusion is that despite what is fair, we have to be careful how we protect the Mexican / US border. We have to think about innocent people and families possibly from both sides getting killed. We can’t have our fear control our thoughts and actions. I would rather see our National Guard troops there than vigilantes or rookie border patrol agents. If vigilantes get involved we do not know if they are corrupt. They can start a war with other US citizens because of their actions. The National Guard would be more capable of handling this correctly.
