Protesters Carry AR Rifles, Flags in March Against Central American Teens Coming to Vassar

Lindsay Knake, MLive, July 14, 2014

More than 50 people from across Michigan turned out to protest the possibility that a Vassar facility could house Central American children and teens who have fled into the country.

The group, led by Michiganders for Immigration Control and Enforcement organizer Tamyra Murray, marched a little more than a mile, from Vassar City Hall to Wolverine Human Services’ Pioneer Work and Learn Center.


Some carried AR-15 rifles and handguns, while others carried Gadsden “Don’t Tread on Me” flags, American flags and Rochester resident Jeff McQueen’s “second American revolution” flags, designed from Betsy Ross’ flag with a Roman Numeral II in the middle.



Grosse Pointe Park-based Wolverine Human Services is negotiating a contract with anti-poverty organization Heartland Alliance in Chicago to provide temporary housing to 12- to 17-year-old males from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala.

The prospect has caused a stir in Vassar, a city of about 2,700 people about 20 miles east of Saginaw in Tuscola County. In the past week, the community has hosted two protests and a July 9 informational meeting, which more than 200 people attended.

Nearly 60,000 children and teens from the Central American countries have turned up at U.S. borders since October, and federal officials are deciding how to handle the influx of unauthorized immigrants. That could include subcontracting for temporary housing with facilities such as Wolverine’s Pioneer Work and Learn Center.


As the protestors walked a mile to the Pioneer Work and Learn Center, drivers passing by waved and honked in support. Protesters carried signs saying, “seal the border,” “it’s law–deport” and “no illegals.”

Scott Freeman, a Millington resident and owner of Finish Line Pizza in Vassar, was out holding a second American revolution flag. He said he joined the protest because the government thinks it can step on who it wants to step on.

“We don’t have no say. (President Barack) Obama’s gotta go,” he said.


Once the group reached Pioneer Work and Learn Center’s gates, the group stopped in a turnaround, said a prayer for the government to make the right decision and sang “God Bless America.”

McQueen, the designer of the “second American revolution” flag, said another revolution is happening–the people against the federal government.

He came to Vassar to protest Central American children coming to the town.

“Not in my backyard,” he said. “These kids are here illegally. Obama has ignored us.

“He’s calling illegal immigrants undocumented immigrants. It’s like calling drug dealers undocumented pharmacists.”

If the meaning of words change, he said, the rule of law has no meaning.

“That’s anarchy,” McQueen said.

  • People are starting to get more and more aware of this issue and are organizing.

    Just a word of advice, if you happen to be such an activist: Don’t be so cavalier with your votes. Don’t let RINOs and traitors take your political and activist energy to fly it into the ground. And don’t be taken in by insincere slick advertising.

      Right; it’s not just Nerobama, both Republican and Democrat presidents since Clinton have signed on to the secretive, border-erasing NAU (North American Union aka Security and Prosperity Partnership). That’ s why we keep heading down the same road (of self-destruction) no matter which party is in power!

    Unlike the other phony graffiti article on AmRen today, these are sensible people and they KNOW how to spell, illegal.

  • journey

    These national protests might be the turning and starting point in the reversing of demographics. After all Eisenhower easily deported thousands of Hispanics.

  • Only 50?

    • LACountyRedneck

      Whites are way too passive. They want “the other guy” to do it, but how many of us here have actually gone out and done this type of stuff?

      • Conrad

        Just an FYI. I’ve been there.

      • Whitetrashgang

        That will not do anything, its third party or armed conflict.

        • gemjunior

          I’m sorry to have to say I agree with you, I think we’re at an impasse where it’s these choices. I don’t see any other way. I don’t see any of our “representatives” doing anything proper by us. So it’s a new party for us or unfortunately, armed conflict. While we still have the arms, that is.

          • Zaporizhian Sich

            Your analysis is correct, either we form a white national party or we resort to armed revolution whose outcome could leave us in a much worse position than we are in now. There are no other ways out of this.

        • MBlanc46

          It will certainly take public demonstrations against mass immigration. I don’t think that serious armed conflict will be required.

          • gemjunior

            I don’t know. There are many public demonstrations against mass immigration but they are ignored by the media. The demonstrators eventually believe they are having no effect, which is precisely why the media refuses to acknowledge protests. People feel powerless and eventually stop going out to protest. When it happens all over the country everyone just assumes nobody else cares. I doubt that serious armed conflict would even do anything if our own government turned the military on the people, because the technology of the armed forces is far too much for the average gun owner. On the other hand as we know, guerrilla tactics and insurgencies are quite effective against mighty armies. I don’t want to find out myself, but who knows what will happen? I simply do not understand though, how we will ever return to normal after such a precedent has been set — the president and his gang basically assuming there are no rules. Any future president will also do whatever they please. So one way or another, the people of this country will have to make a move toward asserting ourselves.

          • Occidental Dissent has an open thread about the immigration protests this weekend, and he has found a bunch of local eyeball news stories about the ones that have happened today, and also photographs.

            Of course the national media will mostly ignore it. But so what? The national media doesn’t win all the time.

          • MBlanc46

            Clearly there’s much to what you say, but there’s a chance that we can hit a critical mass that the corporate media will have to take notice of.

        • LACountyRedneck

          I wouldn’t be talking about it unless I knew it worked. We’ve got to attack from every angle.

  • JackKrak

    Mixed feelings. I obviously back them all the way with what they’re trying to do but why bring a gun to this when it’s just going to give the media an excuse (as here) to stick it in the headline and obscure the point of the rally with the that there were – gasp! – GUNS around?

    • Any other time, the PR hack in me would be pulling my increasingly graying hair out of my head because of that. But now, with public anger so intense over this issue, I don’t think the other side can benefit from making hay of that. Unless our kind of people do something extraordinarily stupid, I don’t think it will hurt.

      The media really gave a lot of airtime to the Murrieta protests, thinking that the optics of “angry white people” blocking a bus full of “kids” would help them and hurt us. It hasn’t, so that’s why the media has stopped covering our protests.

    • Adolf Verloc

      Agree – don’t see how that added to the effectiveness of the demonstration. The administration is obviously trying to disperse these “children” around the country as rapidly as possible for eventual release. I am sure that the Corps of Engineers could construct spartan but sanitary temporary detention facilities in short order. That, of course, assumes that “temporary detention” is what TPTB have in mind.

    • LACountyRedneck

      I wish there were thousands of rallies like this with thousands of GUNS. A showing of strength and intimidation towards our government. We were doing these types of rallies (no guns allowed here of course) here in L.A. in ’06. The media would only show illegals and their supporters.

      More people with more guns equals a greater showing of strength.

      • Oldcorporal

        That’s right. If guns are outlawed, only outlaws (and the government, and the police) will have guns.

        • Screamin_Ruffed_Grouse

          But Oldcorpoal, me thinkest thou doest repeat thyself. Twice.

        • Zaporizhian Sich

          All three will be outlaws once gun ownership is declared illegal.

          • Nonhumans

            Illegalizing and “Trying” to take our guns is the worst move the libtards or our treasonous govt could make. It would immediately ensure an overthrow of this treasonous govt and guarantee a very short 2nd revolution.
            I think its fair to say that they’re very aware of this fact.

          • Oldcorporal

            Your comments are duly noted. I hadn’t thought of it that way, but you’re absolutely right.

          • Zaporizhian Sich

            Doing that will indeed start a violent revolution that will turn into a bloody Ukrainian style civil war that will lead people swinging from lamp posts, or worse. It will not be a quick rebellion, it will last for years, decades even. And the U.S., will tear apart into smaller nations, which will prompt other countries to intervene or even invade. That could result in nuclear war.

      • Now before we get too carried away, I’m not saying it’s a positive or a virtue. All I’m saying that it’s not the detriment that I would ordinarily think. To me, in this circumstance, it’s a take or leave affair.

        • LACountyRedneck

          Unless perhaps, you were in the same situation we were in when during one of these events a Mestizo stopped in his vehicle and pulled a gun on us. I understand what you’re saying. With or without guns present, we need many more similar rallies with many more people involved. But if you and others decide to do this in a multicultural area, watch you back.

    • willbest

      Because its better to let the government know they are going to have to bring out the national guard if they don’t want the bus turned back than to deal with a PR issue

  • Whiteplight sees the Emperor N

    Isn’t it ironic that the organization sponsoring this plan to implant illegals is called “Heartland Alliance” when it’s an alliance to destroy the Heartland?

  • Whiteplight sees the Emperor N

    I’ve got to say that the notion of “Finish Line Pizza” as a cultural outcome gives away some of the already ridiculous outcomes of even European “multiculturalism” in America. Most Americans have no idea what actually constitutes any particular actual ethnic European culture beyond things like green beer on St. Patrick’s Day.

    • IstvanIN

      It is ridiculous that European immigrants assimilated into Anglo-American culture? That we made a version of pizza ours? That we were a unified country, or tried to be?

      • Whiteplight sees the Emperor N

        I was enlarging on the loss of actual culture in America that can find pizza is linked somehow to Finnish culture.

        But as you say, “tried.” The evidence today is that it has become a sort of Frankenstein monster.

  • Marc Zuckurburg

    All these people, with their flags and signs and guns. It’s a shame they don’t care about me and my well being. I’m down to my last $28 billion.

  • Oldcorporal

    A second American Revolution? Maybe the time is nearing for one. If the Founding Fathers had just “taken it” from the British as we have been from the liberals and blacks, and more recently Hispanics, up to now, we might be the Fifty Colonies today.

    • M.Magog

      A revolution after which a whole group of people should be barred from government, media and the legal profession, banks and education. A certain group has proven they have a group loyalty and a hostility to white Americans. Those who have amassed wealth and who use it to control said institutions should be stripped of that power to control and influence.

      • Zaporizhian Sich

        They would also be lucky to be merely forced out and stripped of their criminally amassed wealth and property.

        • IstvanIN

          They have a homeland.

          • M.Magog

            And they have a gigantic box they have pulled on is for half a century.

        • M.Magog

          the last time they were merely forced out they cooked up a monstrous lie. There was a problem though, no “millions” of bodies , no mass graves. They then cooked up flimsy stories about open pit cremations with bodies stacked 25 high and a small fire in only a 2ft space underneath those bodies. The bottom body may have been a little charred on one side, that is all. The bodies above it would not have been touched. So much of the sort is obviously false. The Shoa foundation has online “testimonials” of numerous people who were sent to Treblinka, had a shower, given some bread and water, and then put back on the cleaned out train. This contradicts the story that not one person sent to Treblinka survived. It was just a transit camp. I also always thought it was funny, comical funny, that they supposedly gave haircuts to people that were supposed to have been gassed only five minutes later. WHY? It would just slow down the process. There was an epidemic of Typhus though, The haircuts were to stop the spread of lice. They were trying to keep people alive. It is such a monstrously evil hoax that the controlled media has spread.

          • Grantland

            “Treblinka Ground Radar Examination
            Finds No Trace of Mass Graves

            A detailed forensic examination of the site of the wartime Treblinka camp, using sophisticated electronic ground radar, has found no evidence of mass graves there.

            For six days in October 1999, an Australian team headed by Richard Krege, a qualified electronics engineer, carried out an examination of the soil at the site of the former Treblinka II camp in Poland, where, Holocaust historians say, more than half a million Jews were put to death in gas chambers and then buried in mass graves.”

          • M.Magog

            YEs, They show no disturbance of the ground. Even if the graves had been emptied and the bodies burned as they claim in the hoax, the radar would show changes in the layers of the earth. The chief rabbi of poland will not let them drill core samples for hard confirmation of this. The accounts of Treblink being used as a death camp ALL come from ONE person – a Yankel Weirnick, yet his book is not credible for several reasons, the first one being that the claims they had a fence surrounding the camp that was made of pine branches woven into the barbed wire so densely that no once should see in the camp. Think about that for a minute…….Ever burn your christmas tree after christmas? They go up in lighting speed. Weirnick also tells stories of the jewish guards smoking,,,,, so they had… MATCHES! He also says there was open air cremation grates only feet from the fence… Laughing yet? HE also claims that aver a million bodies were buried in pits way to small to contain that many, and that they were later dug up and burned. He then claims as well that the prisoners who worked at the camp got their water from a well that was surrounded by those pits. The well water would have been contaminated.
            Claims are also made that camps like treblinka used diesel engine exhaust to kill their victims. Diesel exhaust does not contain enough CO to kill people, it has a lot of soot, not CO. Countless “survivors” claim that they saw black and blue or blue bodies after the gassing. They are on camera attesting to this. Both Cyanide poisoning and CO poisoning make the body turn cherry red.

          • Grantland

            I have watched that detailed documentary (can’t recall the name) with all the evidence you mention, and it blew my mind. It was, after all, self-evident to me that the “deniers” were nutters – surely some number of Jews (no way zix millionen, sure) were holocausted – denying the whole affair was just crazy. I thought.

          • M.Magog

            There are several of them on youtube. “The Jewish Gas Chamber Hoax’, “Why the Jewish Gas Chambers are a myth”, “Examining the Evidence of the Holocaust”, “Holohoax Survivors That Tell The Truth”,”The Treblinka Archaeology Hoax” “The Holohoax Exposed” are all good. I saw one of those recently and found the others afterwards. Yes, it blew my mind as well. Up to a week ago I was one of those who believed the hoax unquestioningly. I would reflexively discount those who questioned it as “deniers”. I am not sure what made me decide to actually listen to what the “deniers” had to say . It is a radical departure from the way I was before. I think it is due to my unhappiness at what has been happening to our country and the realization that the jewish media always, ALWAYS, is on the side of those who want to destroy white countries. Whites have a weakness in their empathy and their capacity for guilt. THESE are the weapons that have been used most effectively against us. THAT is what the holocaust is all about. ANYONE who voices white identity and solidarity is shamed as being someone who is “just like a NAZI”. This weapon turns out to have been one of the MOST potent weapons of geocoding whites, to turn them against themselves!!! But… they used a LIE to do it.

          • Grantland

            My empathies on the matter lie entirely with those of the immortal Dr. Pierce, who, I believe, said somewhat less than he felt.

          • NoMosqueHere

      The British (back in 1776) allowed Americans much more freedom, much greater self-government, and more free speech than the US government does today.

    • Oldcorporal

      It’s not “half.” Liberals — which include most blacks — only make up 20 percent of the population, while conservatives make up 40 percent. The trouble is, we conservatives have been too damn passive, for too damn long.

    WE ALL HAVE TO BE PREPARED FOR WHAT IS COMING!!!! Somewhere in hollywood there are scriptwriters feverishly at work writing scripts that will make these protestors ,and those who think like them , out to be stupid, mean, cruel etc. Those same scripts will make the invaders out to be geniuses, saints, hard workers etc. They will have a character of a child of one of those protestors that “overcomes” his/her “prehhhhhjewwwwww-diiihhhhhhhseeeehhhhhhhsssss” and befriends or gets romantically involved with one of the invaders, and switches over to their side and tells their parent off !!! Get ready folks, those cultural marxists are FEVERISHLY at work on this right now!!!!!!!!!! WE need to head them off at the pass, We need to ridicule such a ploy BEFORE they make it, we need to prepare the American people for the next psy-ops that will be used against them!!!!! WE need to make a PARODY of just such a script BEFORE they make their TV movie or regular movie!!!!

      My dream would be to see these small demonstrations break out into all-out anti-immigration (legal included) demonstrations across the country, with some banners saying, “America is European”. That would send a strong chilling message to both the politicians and potential immigrants to the U.S from outside.

    First of all, allow me to point out that Grosse Pointe Park is an enclave of rich liberals. So, once again, White rich liberals who are willing to sell the rest of us down to perdition, will BENEFIT immensely.

Meanwhile, ask all these Wolverine [email protected]#ches, why haven’t they tried to house these illegals somewhere in the Grosse Pointes? Huh? WHY NOT? You all live in mansions, you can’t find room for a few LOUSY illegals?

    Wait until the diseases these “kids” carry start to infect the general population, lice and scabies are the mildest health issues they bring, drug resistant TB is already breaking out in Mexifornia with hundreds of kids infected. There are other even more serious diseases they carry, when “our” kids start getting sick and dying we will know who to blame for not enforcing our immigration laws.
