    FAIR is a hate group and Dan Stein is a racist!

    Dude she totally owned this guy on live TV. The whole thing should of have been bleeped, yeah Mr. Stein's demeanor and answers was that horrible. Although the subject of the bill was not comprehensively covered, F.A.I.R's history, STRONG affiliations, intentions and whole agenda speaks louder than any words.

    Well done Ms. Maddow

    Mr. Stein did an excellent job of standing up to Rachel Maddow tonight. Performances like that are why F.A.I.R. is considered by the media to be a 'moderage' interest group, which it is.

    FAIR has been designated by the reputed SLPC as a hate group. You should check your facts.

    BTW, the SPLC points out that the hate group, FAIR's lawyer drafted the unconstitutional Arizona law.

    USC - The reflexive response of FAIR defenders is to condemn SPLC as somehow disreputable organization, but you're right that this is an organization that has a long, distinguished history and is to be commended for taking on the powerful anti-immigration group.

    I dont think so...FAIR is a hate group and it shows!

    This explains in great detail about FAIR, John Tanton's letters, and SPLC's inaccurate reporting.

    Having racists (who want white supremacy) among board of directors shows the direction of any group. He did nothing but tried to rebuke Rachel's facts with some scripted statements.

    This guy was trying to divert attention the whole time, and saying that the individuals that currently represent FAIR even as extreme as their positions maybe those are not the positions of FAIR. That is like saying that I like vegetable soup but not the vegetables, but they are not part of the same thing......

    I don't think he even tried to rebuke the facts, he pretty much confirmed they were true. His whole point was "I am not guilty by association", but the truth is, this is not just unrelated association - it's a political organization that cannot be free from the political views of the people heading it. They had a rasist found the organization, and head him on the board 20 years, and Stein closely worked for him for years in other hate capacities - Stein can't deny that he does not share those views. If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and SPLC identified it as a duck, maybe the strong suspicion that it is a duck is justified - especially when it does things only ducks do.

    CIS another racist organization with racists such as Kirkorian, Vaughan and Camarotta!

    Well, Tony, let's clear up some facts. FAIR is not only against illegal immigration, they want to dramatically reduce the number of legal immigrants that come into the U.S.. FAIR is against both skilled immigrants (the majority with Bachelor's, Master's and even PhDs.) as well as unskilled immigrants. They just want the U.S. to reduce immigration dramatically period. Now, the reasons for reduced legal immigration are the same excuses that restrictionists and nativists have stated for decades.

    However, FAIR seems to imply that the current wave of immigrants are somehow "different" from those who came through Ellis Island. The facts are that they are not that different, except for the fact that, now the majority of immigrants come from Latin America and Asia as opposed to Europe.

    Now, it is interesting how that would be consistent with what John Tanton seems to complain about. Specifically, the change in the demographic composition of the United States from a predomenantly European population to a population that is diverse and with no particular race being the absolute majority.

    It seems that FAIR is not so "fair" after all.

    Ezra Klein is linking to Greg's "excellent summary" in the Washington Post. Take a peek!!

    We dont need any commission. Had we followed Barbara Jordan and put fee on hiring foreign skilled workers, we will look like Japan or Germany or even worse, Iceland...with more jobs moving abroad. A German guy working with me tells me that many German jobs have moved to American and elsewhere!

    FAIR is a racist organization. When they first started in 1979 they harped against Asians. FAIR wont be very happy until we put a moratorium on immigration, and send most jobs abroad...current predicament in Japan and Germany. FAIR's vision for American is Iceland, not the vibrant Singapore. I have given a lot of evidence that FAIR's concern for American workers stops at the border. In 1984 they were protesting Hormell's hiring of foreign meatpackers...however, when Hormell decided to move jobs to Mexico, they did not join the protest. Then there was the case of the Indian student who got hired over an American woman from Alabama back in 1987...FAIR went to support her. However, when the job moved abroad with the Indian, FAIR backed out...their goal is to keep America white...not the welfare of the American worker! And that is the goal of Kris Kobach as well!
