'Stupid move by the hispanic activists'
Whomever is giving advice to immigrants has been making a lot of political blunders. The 'Spanish national anthem'
is just the latest. The backlash is getting palpable, based on my own usually immigrant-friendly reaction. I'm not the only one. Over at tpmcafe.com
, there's a lot of discussion here

-- The lyrics are here
(via Michelle Malkin
). It's tinkering with the lyrics that's annoying, at least for me. They read like 'We Are the World,' not a stirring national anthem
with rockets and bombs and explosions. The musical rendition
is actually quite pretty. But I still prefer Jimmy Hendrix's version. ... Mickey on 'relationships.'
... Let's hope this all blows over so we can come up with a fair immigration package. I propose a grand compromise: Keep all the working immigrants who are here, beef up border security -- and deport all the do-nothing professional immigration activists to Europe.
