Outrage over ‘Illegal Immigrant Hunting Permit’ Bumper Sticker in Colorado

Huffington Post, February 9, 2013

People in Colorado are outraged over an anti-immigrant bumper sticker with a violent message, NBC affiliate 9 News reports.

Intended as a joke for people who find the idea of killing immigrants funny, the sticker reads “illegal immigrant hunting permit” over a map of the continental United States. “No bag limit—tagging not required,” the sticker says.


It wasn’t the first time the image had sparked an uproar. In October 2011, an online retailer in the San Francisco Bay area called CafePress stopped selling a t-shirt with the same “illegal immigrant hunting permit” image after getting complaints.


Blog Latino Rebels slammed the sticker, calling it racist and calling its anti-immigrant message offensive to Hispanics.

The sticker incident recalled a similar episode in which a Mexican restaurant in Columbia, South Carolina, owned by woman named Leanne Snelgrove drew national attention for selling t-shirts reading “how to catch an illegal immigrant,” with an image of a box over a taco being used as bait.

    I don’t care if they’re offended by someone’s own bumper sticker ON THEIR OWN CAR. I am, however, very offended at these freeloaders who invaded our country, won’t speak English and our bankrupting our country. I’m also angry at the white liberals and politicians who appease these bastards.

    • NYB

      There should also be a ‘traitorous politician hunting permit’.

      • The__Bobster

        With no limit.

        • MikeS

          With no expiration date and with no restrictions on the method used.

      • gemjunior

        Now you are talking, this is one of the best ideas I’ve heard. They are disgusting and I wsh they were all accidentally in one giant helicopter and is “accidentally” killed, like Seal Team Six. Anyone who wonders about it can be called a conspiracy theoristl

      • StillModerated

        I’ve lured them by dragging a $100 bill through the halls of congress. However, I was told by Capitol Police that it’s illegal to hunt in a baited patch.

        • Felix_M

          Thirteen year old girls…(boys are better)…can be used as bait.

      • Felix_M

        Now THAT would be popular.

  • SoCal LoCal

    CafePress markets itself as a free speech haven, looks like they chickened out.

    Too bad even the gas station seems not to want the “bad publicity.” Maybe if they offered an additional asylum sticker for endangered Mexican officials, it would put La Raza back on their heels.

  • Luca

    But tee-shirts of Mao, Che or “Free Mumia” are just peachy, hip and progressive..

  • storibund

    Before the lefty locusts moved into CO, this wouldn’t have raised an eyebrow.

    A real clash of cultures going on there. Lefties are winning.

    TacoCid in SC, however, is still going strong and selling lots of T-shirts. I’m so thankful that lefties are too terrified of the south to move here in great numbers.

    • So CAL Snowman

      Given how much hatred the liberal lefties have for the South, I have begun asking any and all lefties I encounter two simple questions : Why do YOU think it was so important for Lincoln and the North to preserve the union? If you hate the South so much why would you be against secession?

      • storibund

        Haha, it’s true. I love to bring up secession with lefties just to watch them foam at the mouth.

        Their absolute need to control outweighs even their bone-deep hate for us.

        • liberalsuck

          They know the working-class, nonliberal, normal white person doesn’t need liberals to build anything worth a damn; never has, never will.

          • Un-Indoctrinated

            Be careful when you paint the picture of North and South by liberal and conservative. That is a divide that we have gone over and over on this site and it never has a civil end. I know, “civil” being the ironic term. I am an Ohioan (Northern Buckeye). Trust me… There is a difference. The South starts only about an hour away from me, down either major interstate. But I have White integrity and Old world European hard working principles. I believe in the 2nd Amendment as well as a person’s right to the pursuit of life, liberty and happiness. I have a lot in common with many Southerners on AmRen who want the same goals. To move about in our OWN neighborhoods without having to kowtow to the undesirables, being able to send my child to a good school, etc. we must align our similarities as Northern Whites and Southern Whites, and take a stand against criminality of all types, and PC buffoonery and Anti- White hate rhetoric, or we will fall off the scene permanently.

          • storibund

            Un-indoctrinated, I agree completely. There are lots of south-hating lefties living here, believe me 😉

            I actually think the next civil war has already started: that of the red states against the federal government. At this point, it’s still slow, and the states are still comparatively weak; but it will pick up steam quickly as the Left presses their agenda in DC.

            I was actually thinking of Californians in my original post, polluting the whole country as they flee from the once-beautiful state they turned into a cesspit.

  • LastBastionOfHope

    Our country has become so PC that the term “racist” is thrown out so often that people no longer even know what racism means. How does a sticker saying “Illegal Immigrant Hunting Permit” imply that whites are superior to Latinos? All it’s implying is that they don’t support CRIMINALS. Legal immigration is one thing. We may not like it, but it’s legal at least. Illegal immigration is against the law.

    If there were illegal Italian immigrants coming over in droves demanding we speak Italian and get welfare and student aid, I would still be on the side that doesn’t approve of illegal immigrants. It’s not about race, it’s about not wanting to be Americans while demanding preferential treatment all while they are not even supposed to be here! I wonder what an illegal immigrant would do if a white guy knocked down his front door and said, “Give me free stuff and make sure you speak English in this house!”. The irony would be hysterical especially because he would take offense to it not realizing it’s a perfect analogy for how we feel about them.

  • The__Bobster

    This article just oozes with liberal venom, but hey, the Huff and Puff is Engelman’s second read of the day.

  • IstvanIN

    Actually not a bad idea. This would be a great job for bounty hunters.

    • bigone4u

      I agree, but not for Dog the Bounty Hunter. That disgusting piece of dirt is so multicultural he would go after those with the bumper sticker rather than the illegals.

  • bigone4u

    I love it. So many other possibilities. How about a bumper sticker permit that reads, “Cultural Marxist Hunting Permit.” Or, “MSNBC Anchor Hunting Permit” I could go on but you get the idea.

  • Diamond_Lil

    I bought one for my husband before they took it off the market. Wish I’d bought five. These would make great stocking stuffers for next Christmas.

    • saxonsun

      Excellent, just excellent.

    • Michael_C_Scott

      I like bumper stickers. My NRA sticker got me out of a 140 mph speeding ticket on US-40 in Arizona. He pulled me over at the more reasonable speed of 75 and asked me where my guns were. I told him there was an a folding stock AK-47 in the trunk and a Colt 1911A1 in the glove compartment. He didn’t arrest me for absurd speeding – I really must have been doing “only” 180 mph, but asked me what I had in the Saturn. It was a 331 cubic-inch Mercury Marine V-6. This sort of work tends to shred transmissions.

      A transmission won’t fit under a Christmas tree, but a six-speed Tremec TKO would certainly light my fire.

  • If your offended get the f! out!

  • Bud

    Meanwhile, back at the holocaust, no outrage over crimes like this:


    • bigone4u

      I hope everyone clicks on the linked story and ponders how to keep their children safe from monsters who prey on the innocents. The suspect in this case lives in a white upscale neighborhood (by my standards anyway), yet could not stop himself from killing and presumably raping a little girl. I hope he gets the chair.

  • MarcusTrajanus

    “Blog Latino Rebels slammed the sticker, calling it racist and calling its anti-immigrant message offensive to Hispanics.”
    Wrong on all counts. Illegal immigrants aren’t a race, the message is anti-illegal immigrant, not anti-immigrant, and you don’t get to dictate what’s “offensive to Hispanics”.

  • cecilhenry

    Offended by the victim of the crime defending himself, but not the criminal.

  • Greg Thomas

    I’m “offended” by illegal invading mestizos. Someone gets it…..

  • LHathaway

    It’s racist? Isn’t this an admission that some races more than others must be immigrating? How about dealing with the racism involved in displacing those of a certain ethnic race?

  • odious liberal

    Where can I buy these in bulk?

  • I love it!

  • I’ll take three.

  • Yet Jamie Foxx can gloat about his role of killing white people in a hate revenge movie on Saturday Night Live and it doesnt offend “liberals”. And killing white people is a common reality today where as this sticker is an obvious joke because hunting and killing illegals is not happening.

  • Tom Iron

    Something like this is only the normal reaction to the insane idea of allowing millions of people to come here who have zero ability to make it in the society. What do people think is going to happen? That no one is going to say one word over it or display a bumper sticker like this? That everyone is just going to sit idly by and say, do nothing? C’mon…

  • StillModerated

    Oh dear me! The invaders are offended. ChhhaaaH you know what — I’m glad they’re offended. And this message from Mad TV when it used to be funny.


  • Felix_M

    Be surreptitious. There are plenty of places they can be posted without anyone knowing who did it.

  • Tim

    My late favorite brother pulled the reverse of this gag on me. Before I headed into the Texas Hill Country for a hunting trip he had a “Gay Atheists For Gun Control” bumper sticker put on the back of my truck. I figured it out by the second cafe stop from all the looks….. I miss you Guy!!

  • Fed Up

    I’d like a license ASAP, please. But then I’m well aware of the propensity of illegals and certainly also their older anchor babies to gravitate to crime!

  • you’re not allowed to tell the truth. Illegal aliens are known for rape, murder, and robbery. What we actually need to do is to hunt them down and send them back to Mexico. This is why we need the death penalty. That way we can get rid of them permanently the way it should be.

  • WhiteFalcon1

    All great logic is found on bumper stickers!

  • A1rh3ad

    Yes, we’re racist because we don’t want people to enter our country unregistered and uninvestigated without a taxable income. Let’s just open the borders and let all the criminals wander over here tax free on the American taxpayer’s tab.
