Fear of a 'racial jihad' from Robert Rodriguez

Last month I wrote about anti-illegal immigration groups pushing a video of a rally where opponents of Arizona's tough new law talked -- in my view -- like particularly ornery tea partyers. That video was the first link in a chain of videos that show pro-amnesty activists getting angry and their opponents seeing, to be frank, anti-white racism. The latest outrage is the new movie from Robert Rodriguez, "Machete," an action film based on a fake trailer from the very fun 2007 film "Grindhouse" that pits Mexican actor Danny Trejo against white racist politicians. The ad campaign was launched with a tongue-in-cheek video of the menacing Trejo sending "a message to Arizona." Cue the outrage, as Texas radio host Alex Jones explains.
