Mansoor Embraces Extremists

While turmoil continues to swirl around Costa Mesa Councilman Eric Bever for his capricious decision to withdraw his support for the City's bid for the Orange County Fair and Events Center his (former?) pal and former Orange County Deputy Sheriff, Allan Mansoor, is on the campaign trail.


My Google Alert system barfed up a little notification this morning that I thought I'd share with you. Seems Mayor Mansoor is guest of honor at a meeting of the California Coalition for Immigration Reform (CCIR) tomorrow evening, Wednesday, April 28th. You can read the announcement in full HERE.

In case you don't know about the CCIR, it was founded by racist Barbara Coe more than 15 years ago. Coe, among other things, was an officer in Jim Gilchrist's Minuteman Project until they had a spat over who was running the show. You can read more about the CCIR HERE.

A few years ago, when Mansoor was being honored at another CCIR event, he was named an honorary member of the Minuteman Project. Since that time opponents of his plan to designate every single Costa Mesa police officer as an immigration screener began referring to him as "Minuteman Mayor" or "Minuteman Mansoor".

I point out Mansoor's participation at this meeting because I've recently heard some observers speculate that he might steer clear of the extremists who support him to broaden his appeal for his run for Van Tran's 68th Assembly seat this year. Obviously, that is not the case. Nope, he will continue to embrace those folks and, apparently, vice versa. He will continue to pander to the extremists among us to garner votes, just as he did when he rode the backs of Costa Mesa's immigrants to victory in his Costa Mesa council campaigns.

As the campaign season moves forward we'll be addressing Mansoor in depth, including an assessment of his campaign contributors. We'll keep that for a future entry, but some of the numbers are very interesting and illuminating.

You should run this video on your post.

It figures a loser like Mansewer would take support from the likes of Coe.

The writer of this propaganda piece neglected to mention that the Minuteman Project is a "multi ethnic" immigration law enforcement advocacy group. Essentially, we represent persons of all races, colors and creeeds, etc. who believe in a nation governed by its people in a civilized manner under the rule of law. I agree that there are various factions among both sides of the immigration law enforcement debate, some of which are outright fascist cults. The Minuteman Project is NOT one of them. If the writers for this blog cannot understand that, then no one could ever explain it to them.

Jim Gilchrist, Founder and President, The Minuteman Project

Blah, blah, blah.... we know EXACTLY who and what your are, Minuteman Jim. We've watched you in action and read your tripe. We've seen your sycophants from Alta Loma and Rancho Cucamonga stand before our city council and rant and rave on your behalf. That being said, you're always welcome here to try to convince us of your divinity.

MinuteKlanHater, your characterization of old Jim and even older Barbara is harsh. Fortunately, Jim's history supports your view and there is video evidence available to support your observation of Barbara, too. Sad, angry folks obviously looking for validation of lives poorly spent.
