I'll post two here, but there are more on my blog.
A short synopsis below the fold...
When I arrived, Carlsbad police - in conjunction with several other police departments from around North County - had cornered off Lancer Way from Chestnut Ave. Most of the parking lots were full, forcing many local residents to park far away from there homes. I myself had to park a block away from Magnolia Ave, totalling a good quarter mile away from the High School.
There were bullhorns, chanting, clapping and booing. Insults were slung from both sides, which made the event ugly. From what I could tell, most people on both sides of the picket line outside the packed Cultural Arts Center were not locals to Carlsbad. I saw some unaffiliated shaved-head individuals that roamed about the crowd of anti-immigration supporters. I believe them to be skinheads of some nature. Some of the pro-immigration groups that follow the MinuteMan Project appearances, his is fairly common. Some people came from Vista, which just recently had a local shooting spree due to gang violence. I believe they came to support a resolution for our Tri-county area, but they didn't find any. They found a pep rally for hate.
I was not able to get inside due to the packing of the event, and police presence was EXTREMELY strong. I hear it was fairly represented in the audience at the event, the stage on the other hand was heavy handed conservatism and race-baiting.
From what I can tell, this was a coalition of hate and vitriolic political hatred. Formed by Bill Morrow, in order to take the seat of the disgraced and dishonored Randy "DUKE" Cunningham. Bill Morrow has put forth big bucks in order to beat out any other Republican candidates. Hoping that Jim Gilchrist and his fanatical freaks will push Bill Morrow into the spotlight and sweep a new anti-immigration candidate into office.
