Supreme Court Immigration Protestors

Also known as Occupy activists.  Thanks to some video that has been forwarded to us, we can show you an example of those who were in attendance.  The favorite in the crowd was this gentleman who tried to tell those who disagreed with his point of view that they were simply ignorant of the facts.  He said, "Ignorance is not so great a shame as being unwilling to learn."  They do like to sound intelligent and smarter than everyone else.  They also like to claim that if someone doesn't share their same view, it must be because they are just ignorant and must be educated of the facts.

He then went on to tell about his idea of fixing the immigration problem which was to go after corporations.  In his own ignorance, he had no idea that the state of Arizona already had legislation enacted since early 2008 to crack down on employers who knowingly hire illegals.  Because of this legislation, Arizona has seen both a dramatic drop in the hiring of illegals as well as a significant increase in self deportation.  Other states should follow Arizona's example.  Mr. Occupy was then asked if he had made any effort to try and change the law by going to his state legislature or Congressman (Barney Frank.  Enough said).  He cited something about the Citizens United vs. FEC case.   Last we checked, that case involved allowing companies to make political contributions and had nothing to do with companies hiring illegals.

When asked who his Senators were, he obviously had no idea and decided to distract and deflect from his own ignorance by saying "What are you so afraid of?" 

Someone should point out to him that it wasn't Thomas Jefferson who made the quote on his poster.  It was Benjamin Franklin. 

Perhaps he meant the Jefferson quote that says,

 "If a nation expects to be ignorant and free,
it expects what never was and never will be."
