Lupillo Rivera has made a name for himself in the liberal and Latino media by leading a small counter-protest in Murrieta, CA this past week. This was after several hundred Murrieta residents blocked buses filled with illegal alien children and families from their city. Those reports have highlighted Rivera’s claim that he was spit on by one protester. (A despicable act, if true, that may have been caught on videotape. With all the media and police surrounding Rivera, apparently no arrest was made.)
What the reports fail to mention is that Rivera employed anti-white racial slurs when confronting the protesters.
Rivera wore a black ball-cap emblazoned with the race-baiting phrase, “RELAX GRINGO, I’M LEGAL.”
Gringo, of course, is a Mexican slur against white Americans. The statement on the cap communicates Rivera’s message that he believes white Americans are racists who automatically think Hispanics are illegal aliens.
Wearing that cap during the course of his vocal counter-protest, Rivera waded his stocky self in to the midst of the protesters, trying to provoke reactions as a few of his counter-protesters backed him up.
Rivera spoke Spanish to his fellow counter-protesters, but spoke in English to the crowd and media.
