APRIL '06: AS IN THE REST OF THE COUNTRY, A RALLY WAS HELD IN DOWNTOWN SEATTLE IN SUPPORT OF THE RIGHTS OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS ...

I FEEL TALL AT THIS PARADE ...

HOORAY!

THE ATMOSPHERE WAS FRIENDLY AND FESTIVE, THOUGH IT WAS HARD FOR ME TO TALK TO MANY OF THE PARTICIPANTS, SINCE FEW OF THEM SPOKE MUCH ENGLISH ...

I HAD NO IDEA SO MANY LATINOS LIVED IN WASHINGTON STATE--AND NEITHER DID THEY, JUDGING FROM THE AMAZED LOOK ON THEIR FACES AS THEY JOINED IN THEIR OWN PARADE ...

I FOUGHT IN 'NAM! WHAT HAVE YOU EVER DONE FOR THIS COUNTRY?

GO HOME, YA FREE-LOADERS!

THE LONE SOUR NOTE CAME FROM A HOMELSS VET, WHO CURSED OUT THIS PARADE OF WORKAHOLICS WHILE HE STOOD ON HIS CORNER BEGGING FOR HANDOUTS!

WE PASSED THROUGH AN EAST ASIAN NEIGHRBOOD THAT WAS ALSO FULL OF IMMIGRANTS, LEGAL AND OTHERWISE...

NO ONE HERE TOOK PART IN THE RALLY, THOUGH SOME OF THE YOUNG MALES FLASHED THE VICTORY SIGN AS THE PARADE PASSED BY THEM ...

I WOULD'VE ASKED THEM IF THEIR MAMAS TOLD THEM NOT TO MAKE WAVES, BUT NONE OF THEM SPOKE ANY GODDAMMED ENGLISH EITHER ...

HOW DO THESE PEOPLE EXPECT A MONO-LINGUAL REPORTER LIKE ME TO DO MY GODDAMNED JOB!?

OFF ON THE SIDELINES WERE ALL THE USUAL PROTEST JUNKIES, WHO GLOM ONTO ANY ISSUE AS IF IT'S ALL ABOUT THEM ...

WARCHISTS FOR A FREE TIBET

FEMINISTS FOR ANIMAL RIGHTS

VEGANS FOR A LIBERATE PALESTINE

ONLY THIS TIME THEY WERE SO DROWNED OUT BY THE SHEER NUMBERS OF JUBILANT MEXICANS WITH A CLEARLY DEFINED MESSAGE THAT IT WAS EASY TO IGNORE THEM!

THAT DIDN'T LAST LONG. TWO WEEKS LATER THERE WAS YET ANOTHER NATIONAL IMMIGRANTS' RIGHTS DAY--HELD ON GOOD OL' COMMIE MAY DAY, OF COURSE--AND THIS TIME THERE WERE LOTS OF SHRILL WHITE PEOPLE IN ATTENDANCE ...

BOYCOTT WORK!

BOYCOTT SCHOOL!

BOYCOTT EVERYTHING!

TRUST ME, THIS IS GONNA WORK!

AND SOME IDIOT DECIDED EVERYONE SHOULD WEAR BLACK "IN SOLIDARITY," THUS MAKING THIS FORMERLY FESTIVE MOVEMENT FEEL MORE LIKE A WAKE!

THIS TIME THE "PROGRESSIVES" WERE LEADING THE PARADE--RIGHT INTO THE HANDS OF RIGHT-WING FEAR-MONGERS WHO NOW COULD LINK THE IMMIGRATION RIGHTS MOVEMENT TO EVERY RADICAL FRINGE GROUP IMAGINABLE ...

LET US GET MARRIED, YOU FASCISTS!

THANKS A LOT, FRINGIES! I'M SURE THAT OLD-FASHIONED, DEVOUT CATHOLIC FAMILY MARCHING BEHIND YOU REALLY APPRECIATES YOUR CONTRIBUTION TO THEIR CAUSE!

BUT THE LOONY LEFTIES COULD BARELY HOLD A CANDLE TO THEIR RIGHT-WING COUNTERPARTS ON THIS ISSUE. TAKE, FOR EXAMPLE, A RALLY OUR NATION'S SELF-APPOINTED BOARD GUARDIANS, THE "MINUTEMEN," HELD THAT SAME...
