The New York Times' April 23 story, "Justices to Rule on Role of the States in Immigration," was frightening, but dishonest.
The anti-enforcement wing of the agricultural lobby must have been pleased with the Times piece which portrayed farmers as the hapless victims of state enforcement laws run amok (the photo for the story online depicted a forlorn-looking farmer, alone in his fields). According to the Times, farmers in Georgia "could not recall a more acute labor shortage" after Georgia passed its local enforcement law. Farmers warned "that they could go out of business if the labor supply continues to decline." The story was smothered in negative language ("fear," "turmoil," "terror," "unanticipated consequences," "negative fallout") bookended by the cries of local farmers who claimed to "need the [illegal] labor."
I hate to be the one to let truth get in the way of a good story but the federal government gives farmers an unlimited guestworker program to fill all of their labor needs. According to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services:
When U.S. employers have a shortage of available U.S. workers to fill temporary or seasonal agricultural jobs, they may file an H-2A petition with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) for permission to employ foreign workers to perform that work in the United States. Once the petition is approved, these workers, if they are eligible for admission, may enter the United States in H-2A nonimmigrant status.
The H-2a visa program is well-known to the Times which reported last year that "Mexican workers can now receive their [H-2a] documents the same day that they apply." Ironically, the story reports that some farmers moved to North Carolina after Georgia passed its law. Perhaps they will join the North Carolina Growers Association which, according to its website, uses the H-2a program to provide its members with "a workforce that is legal, reliable, and ready to ensure that your crops are planted, maintained, and harvested in a timely fashion."
For reasons known only to the Times, the paper withheld the existence of the unlimited guestworker program from readers of the story.
The obligatory American-bashing frequently found in stories like this did, however, find its way into print. According to a farmer who spoke with the Times, a local advertisement he "placed for 16 workers brought one local man, who lasted half a day in the heat of Georgia summer." The Times did not track down the "local man" to verify the farmer's story (there is no indication that the reporter even tried). American workers are routinely abused like this by the press, which never gives the workers voice to present their side of the story. Had the reporter interviewed the "local man," readers would have gained a legal worker's perspective about pay and working conditions in Georgia's agricultural industry.
That insight would have been informative, but the Times must know that scary stories are best told to audiences left in the dark.

For a smart man, Mr. Beck is showing a lot of ignorance. He said he doesn't know why the Times would withhold these facts. I can answer that for him. Jew York Times Publisher: Arthur Sutzberger, Jr. Editor-In-Chief: Jill Abramson, Opinion Editor: Andrew Rosenthal, News Editor: Richard Berkstein. Lots more names, but I think I've made my point. However, who actually owns the paper? The New York Times Company does. Who runs the company? Why it's none other than the Times publisher Arthur Setzberger as Chairman of the Board, with Michael Golden as V. Chairman. The number three person is Janet Robinson. Not a Jew, but worse. She is one of the Robinsons of Newport, Rhode Island, one of the oldest wealthy families in America - in other words, from an old family of Judeo-Capitalists.
As we all know, the Jews and Judeo-Capitalists want to keep the flow of illegals coming because they work cheaper than do Americans and legal immigrants. THAT'S why they left out the bit about the H2a Visa program. The H2a makes these "guest" workers legal for agricultural jobs only, but it does make them legal which is why they don't want us to know about the program. As soon as an illegal becomes legal, he wants more money, benefits, and all the rights that citizens and legal immigrants have. This of course will cut into profits.
Now you might say that the farmers that are being effected by this are not Judeo-Capitalists. Well, independent small farmers are not. But large-scale corporate farming is becoming more and more common. Also, who do farmers both independent and corporate sell their crops to? Why to food companies that process and package them. These companies are mostly corporations. If farmers have to pay more for their labour, they have to charge more for their crops. In turn, food companies must charge more to the grocery stores, who charge us more which makes the public angry. Do they care if we're angry? Not at all, but they still have to deal with us and it's easier at the moment to use illegal labour than legal labour and have to charge more and deal with our griping. What I'm getting at is that corporations won't allow workers to get a fair wage if it comes out of THEIR profits. They either under pay them, as with illegals, or pass along the cost to us. Either way works as well for their profits, but by under paying the illegals, at least they don't have to do any spin control as they would if they had to raise food prices in order to pay LEGAL workers a fair wage. Since illegals can't complain about their situation, it's just easier for them to use illegals.
National Socialist Germany had an excellent agricultural system. Farmers were paid a fair price for their crops, and people paid a fair price for their food. This system worked perfectly, at least until the war when Allied planes began bombing German farms in order to disrupt the food supply. Not meaning to get off the track, but in my opinion, it was the Allies fault that Jews in concentration camps were under fed. There simply was not enough food after the Allies began destroying German farms, food warehouses, and transports hauling food. After all, what did the Allies expect Germany to do? Deprive their people of food to feed enemies of the State? I think not.
But back to the subject. I am paying about $40.00 a month more for food (and other things you buy at grocery stores) than I did a mere two years ago, yet my monthly income on average is about the same - and it will only get worse.
Comrades, most of us are in the same boat. And it's not just White Americans, it's ALL working class Americans. The American Nazi Party is for White working and middle class Americans. It's the ONLY hope our Folk have to survive. However, non-Whites must realize that we are not their enemy. We are FOR our Folk, not against them. The real enemy are the corrupt politicians and the greedy Judeo-Capitalists that pay them.
I say this to all non-White Americans. YOU are being dragged down into Serfdom just as we are. You may get a few perks from the government like small business loans and Affirmative Action, but overall, you are becoming poorer and poorer just as we are. Why are they giving you these things? To help destroy the Whites. When the White middle class is gone, what do you think will happen to you? Do you think you will begin to prosper? I'd think again if I were you. The financial ruin of our people means the financial ruin of yours as well.
The real enemies of non-Whites don't wear Swastikas. They wear dollar signs.
