Actress Maria Conchita Alonso is an anti-illegal immigration activist and fierce opponent of both the Castro brothers and the late Hugo Chavez. She has never hid her politics, appearing several times on Hannity and The O’Reilly Factor.

But Alonso’s endorsement of Tea Party candidate Tim Donnelly proved to be a bridge too far for San Francisco Latinos. After Alonso cut an ad with the colorful Donnelly, the local Hispanic community went ballistic. This led to Alonso being forced to quit a production of The Vagina Monologues that was set to open next month.

CBS San Francisco reports:

Donnelly has voiced strong views against illegal immigration and was once involved with the Minutemen Project, a group that patrolled the border with Mexico to catch immigrants coming across.

“Politicians and big government are killing our prosperity, pushing welfare costs through the roof and driving our schools into the ground,” Donnelly said in the ad.

Standing next to Donnelly, Alonso jokingly translated in Spanish, “We’re screwed.”

Alonso is an actress of Cuban and Venezuelan descent. She is perhaps best known for her role in the movie “Moscow on the Hudson” which also starred Robin Williams.

The actress was to perform next month at the Brava Theater Center in San Francisco’s Mission District in a Spanish-language version of “The Vagina Monologues,” scheduled for a run from February 14th through 17th. The show is being produced by none other than Eliana Lopez, wife of San Francisco Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi.

“We really cannot have her in the show, unfortunately,” Lopez told KPIX 5. She said Alonso abruptly resigned from the cast on Friday, given the backlash on the immigration issue.

“Of course she has the right to say whatever she wants. But we’re in the middle of the Mission. Doing what she is doing is against what we believe,” Lopez said.

Oh, dear. We musn’t have that, must we? After all, there’s only one belief system among all Hispanics and if you don’t agree, good luck getting a job, sucker.

Alonso received an earful from listeners of Spanish-language radio station KIQI 1010 AM in San Francisco on Friday, after she said in an interview that she supported many of Donnelly’s views on illegal immigration. Several listeners took her to task after she used the term “illegal” to describe undocumented immigrants.

In the ad, Alonso holds a chihuahua named “Tequila” and uses some vulgar language which has also been a point of contention among some Latino viewers.

“We don’t act like that. First of all, that is not a typical Latina,” said Jim Salinas, a long time Mission resident and former president of the San Francisco Latino Democratic Club. Salinas said there probably would have been boycotts if Alonso had stayed on the production.

Liberal Hispanics tie themselves into knots trying to avoid saying what everyone in America knows; people who are in the U.S. without proper documentation are here illegally. I couldn’t care less if someone is “offended” by the truth. What does being offended have to do with the law? “Illegal” is the perfect word to describe those who broke the law to get here. Why mess with the English language except to obscure the truth?

Here’s the offending ad, which I find pretty clever, actually:

She's right..we're screwed. When illegal pendejos pinchazos, can stand up with impunity and mock our laws, our borders and ICE...she's right. How dare we allow this to continue and ignore our laws and Sovereignty? I don't advocate deporting 11 million SOB's that don't belong here...but if we jail their employers and stop giving away "unearned tax credits", stop the exporting of billions of dollars back to their 3rd world hell holes...they'll self deport.

I'm sick and tired of pressing ! for English in my own damn country. I'm sick and tired of seeing stores use Spanish and English in their in store advertising.

This is the People's Republic of San Francisco after all. The paragons of tolerance and diversity prove that they don't know the meaning of either word. The only tolerance they have is for people who think exactly like they do. Everyone else deserves to be marched off to the re-education camp.

Small scale, Alonzo's situation is similar to that of Phil Robertson's on "Duck Dynasty" only coming in the other direction -- i.e., A&E wanted to go into San Francisco mode and boot Robertson from the show for his comments, but caved because in the end, the economic consequences were too great for them to stay true to their PC beliefs (even if they may be gunning for Phil at at later day after any new remarks).

In this case, since the production is limited to San Francisco, the economic controls are on the side of the PC left, which has the power to boot Alonzo from her role. If it was a national broadcast, where the entire country would have a say on producers blacklisting someone for their comments, Maria probably would have survived.

PJM's Headline: "Famed Actress Booted Out of Production..." OK, i'll bite: who famed her? The adjective is FAMOUS, dammit. "Famed" is borderline illiteracy.

I think my head is going to explode. A woman is expelled from a production for having Conservative politics. In a production with an obscene name? And one of the charges is that she used obscenities (reasonable, that) so she can't appear in said obscene production?

Am I missing something, or do we have bigger problems than political repression?

No, they are correct. They aren't illegal; a person can't be illegal. How about calling them "criminal trespassers"? In Israel we call them "infiltrators".

Wouldn't it be great if Conservative actors, directors, and techs exited the Hollywood entertainment machine en masse, and started our own "Hollywood," say in Texas? It would be an interesting experiment to see which prospers and profits, and which withers and dies, when Libs are segregated out of the picture.

Let's just reduce this to a point we all can understand, shall we ?
They're sticking up for/endorsing lawbreakers, [period/end-oh-sentence].
Everything else is just bullsh!t. with a stench that cannot be squelched.
Go to the rear of the line, wait your fricken' turn, or get it on-down the road....
....Comprende' ?

That video was so funny! She is a great actress. Her political views are very intelligent and good natured. Good luck to her. No nation can survive a perpetual invasion, even if it is a peaceful invasion. It is fair to describe the spate of illegal immigration as an invasion because no-one can stop it and it is large scale. So if we want the USA to survive as a nation we do our best to stop the invasion. Is it in the interests of humanity as a whole that the USA survives? Yes it is. Without some centres of excellence all the Earth would be mediocre at best, hellish failures at worst. The USA can set an example of success and other nations can copy what they want. But if the USA cannot control its own demographic future it will be destroyed. That will happen slowly but surely. First step is for wages to go down in the private sector, then in the government sector, then the police and judges are so badly paid they lie for bribes, then crime goes up, then all other social processes fail. That is the path of today. But it doesn't have to be like that. If we stop illegal immigration then wages in the private sector go up, then in the government sector, then the public employees can be trusted, then the people's will can prevail and democracy can be restored. Other nations are allowed to do the same. But id the other nations to the south think that illegal immigration to the USA helps solve their problems then they will postpone the hard decisions they should take to clean up and get started on the road to honesty and good government.

Maria Conchita Alonso wasn't fired, and in fact when she resigned the director asked her to stay. There was a strong backlash from the Latino community, and the theatre is in the Mission district, heavily populated with immigrants from central and south America. Anything connected with Minutemen is toxic for most Latinos, especially since the massacre of a Mexican-American family in Arizona at the hands of Minutemen, two of whom are on death row. In her Univision interview, she said she felt the backlash would negatively affect the show and the other actresses, and she's already wealthy and doesn't need to money from one weekend.

Not sure your comment is 100% factual. Nuff said.

Witness the future of this country if you don't conform--just another way to silence dissent and destroy the First Amendment.
