If my post offends you, I deeply Apple-O-Jize.
The long and short of it is that I was just having fun with you. I could care less about who is on our money. I would far rather Old Faithful or the Grand Canyon or the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier be on the One Dollar bill than any person, President or otherwise. Put Putin on it for all that I care if we must have a face on it.

Our nation has not always lived up to its ideals, yet those ideals have never ceased to guide us. They expose our flaws, and lead us to mend them. We are the beneficiaries of the work of the generations before us and it is each generation's responsibility to continue that work. - Laura Bush
You've accuse me of turning one race against the other.
You said better to go in historical order and put BLACK FOLKS on the currency before we start discussing OTHER PEOPLE.
Now, as you've tried to weasel your way around this, what does this tell people? C'mon, look at the context clues. Were you speaking of another PERSON i.e. Chavez or were you talking about other PEOPLE, i.e Latinos?
You then go on to speak of one individual who i used which is grand, however leading up to that isolated individual of whom I used as merely an example of a Latino historical/civil rights figure, we were/are speaking on race and not individuals, remember, I'm supposedly pitting races against each other not individuals but people, are you still with me? I hope so, I'd hate to have to spank you again.
Now what did you say of these other people? they're "still being attacked and reviled today." Who'd you go back to? Chavez, leading a thinking person to conclude you're saying the other people are Latino's. You think because you gave reason why Chavez would be reviled allows you to escape the context of what was previously said in the context it was said. It don't. But let's continue -- with you're politically charged "pro-states right-wing" antagonists, who are being reviled and attacked? Latinos? No no, they're being pandered to. Illegals? Yes. Most certainly. And are we hearing of the great uprising from prostate right wingers in Montana, North Dakota, Minnesota, Washington, Wisconsin, Maine, Vermont, Michigan sick to death of all those dirty Canadians? No. California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas. That's where the pro-statesrights right wingers are having a conniption. And what borders those States? Mexico!!!!!! and what does Mexico have? MEXICANS!!!! Of course, but more aptly described? Latinos. Now, are the state rights right wingers reviling and attacking Latinos in Mexico? No. Are they reviling and hating on, attacking Latino's who are American? No, we've already said that these Latinos are being pandered to. So who must they be attacking? Who is reviled? ILLEGALS.
So, what was a poor little country plowboy like myself to deduce?
You thought latino's were reviled? No, that's not true they're being pandered to. You must be confused, you must be talking about the terrible illegal immigration our country faces that only states rights right wingers seem to care about. I then asked, to make sure I wasn't mistaken in catching your mistake by ASKING not insinuating, never insinuating, but ASKING if "All Latino's are illegals in your book?"Latino's are reviled? Oh, you're confusing Latino's with Illegals. All Latino's are illegals in your book?
This is the conversation and the context in which it was presented. Not the BS you're trying to pass off now.
Hat. Hand. Door.
Chavez on Google sparks right-wing anger, stupidity on Twitter
Sean Hannity Spreads Dangerous Misinformation about California Water | California Progress ReportOriginally Posted by Michelle Malkin
The post-racial America of Ann Coulter and Pat Buchanan - The Washington PostIn April, the same organization sponsoring Hannity’s visit held a "March for Water" that Arturo Rodriguez, president of the United Farm Workers Union founded by Cesar Chavez and Dolores Huerta, denounced for not representing the interests of farmworkers, but only the growers. The New York Times on April 17 reported that "many of the protesters were paid by their employers to march in lieu of harvesting crops.”

Glenn Beck wants a street named after Rush Limbaugh - Salon.comBeck Compares Navy Naming Ship For Cesar Chavez To Naming Ship For Stalin, Says USS Sanger “Cannons” Would “Shoot Out Fetuses”
Glenn Beck shows once again that any clown can have a microphone in this country.
He certainly is exercising his right to say what he wants, as we shall exercise our right in denouncing his harmful and dangerous vitriol. – Axel Caballero
In short, what do we gather from this? For the right wing, Cesar Chavez is a left wing idol. Not somebody they'd simply allow on currency without their usual smears of socialism and other nonsense. Hell, they complain when his name is put on a city street. Now, I'm sure you knew this because your intention was clear. Throw out names of other minorities (including the ones hated by the right) and continue to muddy the issue so that minorities never get on the currency. You fooled nobody. As for the rest of your post: tl/dr.Beck, who was broadcasting from Utah, wondered “what Cesar Chavez Boulevard has to do with Salt Lake City,” continuing that he “is not going to take it sitting down,” and urging listeners to fight back against the existence of streets named after the labor and civil rights leader.

I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
