Of course he has rights, but so does society.  You're saying that if
someone sneaks into a movie theatre they should demand their rights to stay
and watch the movie?  Encouraging people to be above the law does no one
any service.

Can you explain please?  How does a politician bring black people somewhere
to do jobs white people won't do?  Did he bring them in a bus, a boat? 
Pick them up hitchhiking?  If so, from where?  Did he advertise in a
newspaper perhaps?   And having brought them in, how does he then go about
spouting racist filth and whipping up people with lies?  Does he use a
bullhorn, a blog, a radio?  Please elaborate.

Last I looked, George Bush was pretty white and speaks English too.  He
doesn't get special treatment from me. Ditto for God, who's also a white
man one third the time.  Canadians aren't streaming into the country
illegally by the millions, if that's what you're referring to, so I can't
complain about them.  Who specifically are you referring to?  Also, what do
you have against people doing things legally?
