VIDEO: SB 1070 Supporters Break Out The Hate In Front Of The Supreme Court: ‘Go Back To Your Third-World Armpit’

SB 1070 supporters outside the Supreme Court

WASHINGTON, DC — As the Supreme Court heard oral arguments today on the constitutionality of Arizona’s “papers, please!” immigration law, supporters rallied outside with hate-filled jabs at Latinos and immigrants in general.

Though outnumbered by opponents of SB 1070 at least 20-to-1, supporters made up for their timid numbers with unabashed hate and racism. Among the things SB 1070 proponents said that were overheard by ThinkProgress:

  • “Go back to your third-world armpit if you don’t like it!”
  • SB 1070 supporter, pointing to SB 1070 opponents, many of whom are Latino: “We can read, unlike some of the people over there”
  • Select lyrics from a song called “God Save Arizona” that compared Attorney General Eric Holder to Japanese bombers at Pearl Harbor: “On a clear Sunday morning 1941…they sank the Arizona in a cloud of fire and smoke…And years later in 2010, Arizona is a target once again…Attacked by drug lords, terrorists, and our own Attorney General”
  • button that read, “Don’t Blame me… I voted for the American.”
  • “Mexico doesn’t even want them.”
  • SB 1070 supporter to a nearby opponent: “Why don’t you put that sign in Spanish?”
  • SB 1070 supporter, pointing to SB 1070 opponents, many of whom are Latino: “Those people over there are trespassing!”
  • “Obama can’t even come up with a decent birth certificate.”

Watch a few of the remarks:

These people need to look at our current system all over.  We are becoming a "third world armpit" and it has very little to do with illegals.

I read the title and immediately thought about Albany GA....gah. It is called the armpit of GA. These people make me scratch my head and wonder how they can feel superior with such rhetoric.

Those hateful phrases speak volumes about the quality of people that they are... It sickens me. It really does. Sometimes words are not enough....

Why oh why are the crazies soooo vocal?? Seriously, it seems like the crazies are finding out that the louder they get the more they get accomplished.

After some 40 years, the flow of Mexicans southward into the US has come to a standstill and may even have reversed, according to a new report from the nonpartisan Pew Hispanic Institute.

“More people are going back to Mexico from the United States than coming here from Mexico,” says D’Vera Cohn, a senior writer at the institute and one of the report's authors. “This seems to be the first decrease since the Mexican immigration wave started in the 1970s.”

The Mexican population in the United States peaked at a net 12.6 million in 2007. By 2011, it had fallen to 12 million.

The report analyzed data from five Mexican government sources and four US government sources, including census records and community and population surveys from both countries. Its finding: The net decline in the Mexican immigrant population is almost entirely driven by a decline in the number of illegal immigrants entering the US. The number of legal immigrants from Mexico has stayed the same.

Why are they getting so hysterical about a problem that isn't even a problem anymore?
