I just get a kick out of the Kevin Foley-fixated D.A. King. He really, truly thinks he's an important national anti-illegal immigration authority. Once in awhile he even gets his face on a local TV station or Fox News and equates that to worldwide fame.

 

Over my 30-year PR career I've run into dozens of guys like Mr. King, people with some modicum of minor notoriety who've let it go their heads. Former CNN anchors and ex-TV reality show "stars" come to mind. They adopt this aura of superiority that borders on the pathological until somebody brings them back to earth.

So step right on up here, Mr. King, and let's just see how famous and influential you really are! What?! You have only 105 Twitter followers.

I thought it would be more like 105 million based on your recent attacks on me!

I'll save you the trouble. I don't have a Twitter account. I enjoy a quiet writer's life up here in Kennesaw while offering some thoughtful progressive counterweight to the conservative opinion (or in your case, hateful opinion) in the MDJ at the invitation of the newspaper's editors.

You ARE very famous with the Southern Poverty Law Center. Says here you organized an anti-immigration protest in Atlanta...and when none of your followers showed up, you had to hire a bunch of "day laborers" to serve as your "protesters."

Tell me you did NOT pick them up in front of Lowes!

Here's your old web site, The American Resistance Foundation. Sounds like a group of far right militia yahoos running around the woods in cammo playing soldier. Maybe not:

 

"We have left all pages as they were to make it more difficult for the treasonous and far-left open borders/illegal alien lobby - which profits from illegal immigration and smearing those with the courage to oppose that crime - to present our effort as something un-American." ("Treasonous" would be those Americans who happen to disagree with you, I assume).

 

Apparently ARF is now defunct because you say you "ran out of money"? You mean to say the legions of D.A. King disciples wouldn't pony up the cash to keep your ARF site live?!

 

Here's a little update, Mr. King. The U.S. is on course to become a non-white country in less than a century. Progressives don't give this a second thought. In fact, we celebrate how diversity has benefited America over nearly two and a half centuries.

Then there are others like you who howl "stop!" and nobody pays very much attention.

 

Are there people here illegally? Yes, and by all means secure the borders (if we had only used the trillion wasted in Iraq to do that). But, by all means, let's also stop thinking about gestapo agents demanding papers from people of color and freight cars packed with men, women and children rolling south to the border and start thinking practically about ways to make undocumented workers pay a penalty for their crime and then assimilate them into our American culture.

 

And stop telling us about "Little Mexicos." There've been ethnic communities in America since the days of Virginia Dare.

@darby: Are you as equally outraged by the tax free ride that every church, synagogue and other houses of worship receives and has received?

The smelly Southern Poverty Law Center has released its financial numbers and once again it looks like business has been gooooood for the Captains of the Hate Industry with $31,023,148 tax-free donor-dollars pouring into the coffers.

Just as impressive were the $26,563,924 tax-free interest dollars that pushed the SPLC’s already over-bloated Endowment Fund to record levels.

The SPLC’s Endowment Fund now tops $216 MILLION dollars. Despite taking a $50 million dollar hit in 2008, the SPLC rebounded in record time. Not bad considering the nation has been in the grip of the worst recession in decades. Not bad for a non-profit organization that referes to Christians as racists and haters.

No wonder the SPLC handed out 4-, 5-, and even 6-digit raises to its all-white executive team last year! YOUR KIND OF PEOPLE KEV!

Oh, Kevin. Thanks for the reminder. I donated to DA King last year, but hadn't yet this year. We both just wrote checks to help DA and sent them to the address on the Dustin Inman Society's website.

DA is a hero and brave Kevin. As we can all see, you are not. And you are seldom right on anything that you write as fact Kevin.

Good grief Kevin, you keep writing about DA and trying to marginalize him, and it always shows us who YOU really are. And you can't ever take a position on illegal immigration except to say we need to make them citizens. Can you find the courage to tell us your opinion on Cobb and that image program? Not that anyone cares. I just like reminding you what DA writes about Kevin.

Kevin Foley you now seem to be desperate, you have passed the line of even being fun. You are a complete zero, but just one piece of info for you shold be that King actually is on world-wide TV. I saw a CNN (YOUR NETWORK FOLEY! back when it had more than 80,000 viewers) documentary in 2004 that featured King. It is still online Kevin. I type this because I know how much it will bother you. I see King in the Wall St. Journal and the New York Times too. Agony, isn't it kevin foley?

Marie (whoever you are) - Why don't you and your neighbor put your money where your mouths are and stroke a couple of big checks so Mr. King can get ARF back up online? You too, Mr. Adams.

Oh, Kevin Foley, Democrat hack of Kennesaw Georgia. You seem so upset.

Now you are going to do it all over again? You have grown tired and more worried about DA showing everyone how you get "facts" wrong so often, now you are going back to personal attacks. Again Kevin?

Oh Kevin. How could you see the website you mention and quote from it if it isn't "live." You just can't get a break can you Kevin?

You seem very angry and very jealous Kevin. And I look forward to King again pointing out your past and future idiocy and inaccuracies.

Guess what Kevin. Nobody outside this little blog has ever heard of you or cares what you say. Why would reporting on you being unable to get facts straight effect anyone's Twitter thingy? Kevin. The SPLC are a bunch of people just like you...and nobody (except people like you)cares what they say either. Oh, and Kevin: Allen West is still a black American. And DA King is still a hero. :)

Kevin: I once knew a tolltaker in Boston who worked at the Callahan Tunnel, this man believed that nothing would move through the tunnel unless he said, "OK".

Large fish, small pond syndrome, or DA King Syndrome. I have mentioned in previous posts that DA screams a passing cars. One would think that after ten years of screaming at passing cars DA would have a wider audience.
