Bloomington is at war thanks to Tari

By:  Diane Benjamin

These are the people who helped elect Tari both times, note he looks much younger in the pic below.  The talking points haven’t changed. These are the people demanding a “welcoming ordinance” now.


These are also Tari’s people:


This is what “civility” looks like in Tari’s Bloomington.

Proof:  Tari’s hate filled rant on my site:   https://blnnews.com/2015/02/11/tari-attacks-me-again-not-in-our-town/

The guy on the left loves to leave profane comments on my site.  I have a folder full of them.  He likes to call himself Buddah.  Remember the felon who thought he could run for City Council:  Sonny Garcia?  He is also part of Illinois People’s Action.  Last night he posted on Facebook about Buddah:

 

 

 

 

Does he look like a teddy bear?

 

 

Maybe a close up of his sign will help:

 

How is it possible to have civil discourse with people who hide their identity?

Tari created the current political climate.  All of these groups don’t want the ordinance that is on the agenda for Monday:

Black Lives Matter Bloomington-Normal
Bloomington-Normal DSA
C.A.U.S.A. (Committee Assisting Undocumented Student Achievement)
Conexiones Latinas
Illinois People’s Action
The Immigration Project
The McLean County League of Women Voters
Unitarian Universalist Church of Bloomington/Normal
YWCA McLean County

 

Why hold a meeting if all these groups don’t want it?

DSA is Democrat Socialist of America – Sonny Garcia is a member:

 

The Council needs to cancel the 5:30 meeting NOW.  It isn’t going to happen anyway because it will violate the Open Meetings Act.  The war will turn even hotter if these groups show up to protest.  The meeting needs cancelled and the “welcoming ordinance” banished forever.

How much time is the Council willing to let Tari waste?

How much more abuse is the Council going to take from Tari?

Do you want Freedom and Liberty or Sonny Garcia’s and Tari’s Bloomington?

Yes, the War has begun!

Comments to Facebook last night on the Keeping Families Together site revealed a lot.  Sonny Garcia laid out his political beliefs.  They have nothing to do with the Constitution.  Excerpts are posted below, here’s what he gets horribly wrong:

  1.  We aren’t a democracy, we are a republic.
  2. Sonny needs more than a rudimentary knowledge of socialism before he stakes his life on it.  Millions have died under democratic socialism.  If you didn’t take the time to watch the video I posted last week about Brazil, take the time!   https://blnnews.com/2018/06/28/more-jenn-carrillo/
  3. Interesting choice of words calling his friend “comrades”
  4. Everybody doesn’t have an equal say in government, that’s called mob rule.  We elect representatives.
  5. Sonny thinks he’s acting like Jesus Christ.  Jesus attacked religious leaders, he also said render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar’s.  Jesus never called on Rome to solve anybody’s problems.  Sonny wants City Hall to kneel before his comrades just because his mob shows up.
  6. Social Justice is theft and coveting what other people have.  Jesus wouldn’t approve Sonny.

I saved a couple of comics just for Sonny:

  1. Awesome job. It was worth the couple of hours of back and forth to get Sonny to admit all those ideals. Very telling how he and the 3 Democratic Socialists that are running for council & county seats feel & think. Thank you Diane.

  2. Sonny and his comrades hide behind Jesus while conducting acts of hate, bullying, intimidation. If Jesus walked the earth in 2018 I could envision him walking into the churches that support Illinois Peoples Action and flipping over the tables because of their hypocrisy, and twisting of the gospels for their own worldly means.
    They learn tactics not from the teaching of Jesus but from Saul Alinsky a man who learned his methods from Chicago mafia members. Alinsky goes on to dedicate his book “Rules for Radicals” to Lucifer and says in a Playboy Magazine interview that if given the choice between and Heaven and Hell he would choose Hell.

    1. So you are for the forced separation of children from their parents. Good to know. Thoswho can here for asylum get the back of all your hands. You are so upset that there might be more brown people coming for a better life, you’d rather torture young children because you can. I’m glad you got your hating priorities straight.

      The fact is that normal every day people were horrified by Trump’s “zero tolerance policy”. It’s not a law, but a policy enacted 6 months ago by this administration. They needlessly tore children and babies from their mothers. If you think that fine, then Jesus will come down and smack you up side the head, because no where in any Gospel did he say that only white people inherit this country or any other country.

      I’m laughing so hard about your “Alinsky” comments, you obviously know nothing about him…Perhaps Trump learned his tactics from the New York mob, that’s more likely.

    This coalition is anti-police and anti-government. Their issue is with Immigration Reform which can only be changed by the the Federal Legislature. They need to take it to the Federal level. The City of Bloomington has no control over national policy. Lil’ Sonny needs to take a course on Civics. I believe to become an naturalized citizen, an immigrant has to pass a Civics test.

Possibly because the DEMOCRATS herded Blacks and to a lesser degree Mexicans into housing projects/ghettos, oh wait, “Public Housing” for decades – keeping them nice and contained, and insuring that places like liquor stores and over-priced convenient stores were about the only businesses close by, after removing fathers from the home ensuring that single mothers would have to struggle to raise their kids, kids that were “Incentivized” at that… Because of that they always relate “ghetto” with black people or other “people of color”. It’s truly insidious and disgusting when you know just how deep the history of this “plantation” they created goes. And like LBJ said “We’ll have these ——- voting democrat for 200 years” and yeah yeah I know “unproven” I’d bet a thousand bucks on he DID say it. The left is so constantly caught up with race, and have been for decades upon decades, that everything they hear or say is somehow tied to it.

North Korea is laughing at Trump along with Russia. North Korea is currently ramping up its nuclear program, right under Trump’s nose. Syria? Thank you Obama for not getting us involved in a no win internecine proxy war. Putin took over Crimea? Exactly what did you want Obama to do? Go to war with Russia? Currently your president is handing Syria to Russia and Iran, so l would not talk.

      I’m no going to you give you anything on last sad remark. “Obama phones” were actually Reagan phones since that’s when phone services were originally subsidized. It was during W’s administration that the subsidies extended to limited cell phone services. When you get old and services of both SNAP and other social services, l’ll be sure to mock you.

The ramping up of the program is none other than the mainstream media using google earth to spy on movement and interpret said movement to continue their narative of everything anti-Trump. Laughing? And you know this, how? Whatever. * Putin didn’t take over Crimea, as Russia responded to allegations of illegal annexation by holding a referendum in Crimea in which more than 95% of voters officially backed rejoining Russia. * As Syria has all but eliminated ISIS they did so by asking for Russia’s help. Check out Wesley Clarks commments about invading seven countries in five years and do the math. This was during the Obama administration of eight years. I know it’s so much easier to blame the new guy (that you seem to dislike) for stuff that’s been building under the old administration for the previous decade. Laughable. * Iran, a country 6000 miles away with no navy that has never attacked another country. You can be scared if you want to. I think we have enough to do right here in the good ole USA to keep it’s culture and sovereignty intack by defeating the socialist, communist, marxist takeover attempt by idiots such as yourself that can’t comprehend reality.

    The US hasn’t kept their promises for centuries. Just ask the native American Indians. Not that it makes it ok cause it doesn’t. This agreement was one of the few credits that got done during the Obama administration, however now that you are discussing international politics, what say you about Israel that has never signed the IAEA agreement? Fact is known that they possess 150-200 nuclear warheads and absolutely refuse to have any inspections. That said, what credence did the agreement ever hold in the first place when the biggest player in the region with nuclear warheads, refused to sign? Singling out one president for being a liar merely shows your disdain for the sitting president, nothing else, and severely dilutes any credibility for your post.

      There were never any immigration laws until the1880’s when our country enacted the Chinese Exclusionary Laws. These laws were based on race, abruptly cutting of all immigration from China. This led to progoms against the Chinese, lychings and discrimination against Chinese. This was also against the back drop of the lyching of blacks in the South. Are these the days you want to go back to? From reading the forum here, it seems that that is true.

  21. What makes you say I want “something different”? Ellis Island opened in 1892 approximately that many people came through that port. Before that time there was no limit on people coming through multiple ports including New Oleans, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Detroit, Galveston and Savannah. All before 1892.

    In 2015 approximately 3.4 million Central Americans resided in the United States representing 8 percent of the 43.3 US immigrants. 85 percent of Central Americans in the United States were from El Salvator, Guatemala and Honduras. This area continues to suffer high murder rates, which is driving ongoing migration. The Obama administration launched a media campaign in Central America highlighting the dangers of traveling to the United States.

    Yet the underlying assumption that greater knowledge would deter Central Americans failed. This knowledge of the dangers including deportation didn’t work. Trump’s zero tolerance policy has failed and backfired greatly. Unless you want children as young as 2 being brought to court on their own to be deported without their parents, there is something wrong with this policy. This is a policy not a law, people who asking for asylum Constitional have to have due process. Coming over the boarder illegally is a misdemeanor, same as jaywalking. Most people are opposed to your president’s immigration policies. Hence the large protests against his policies (NOT LAW).
