Also why is Sam Elliot there? WTF does that have to do with anything? This is not the first time Syt's relatives have used nonsensical and sometimes blatantly wrongly used cultural references. I know most memes are cringingly unfunny and stupid but they usually at least attempt to be clever.

Because he’s the sort of fictional figure with which white supremacists identify: rugged, gruff, associated with country, western, military, etc.

Now, now. Playing "I know you are but what am I?" doesn't make somebody a white supremacist.
You know I'm going to lose
And gambling's for fools
But that's the way I like it
Baby, I don't want to live forever.

I've given it serious thought. I must scorn the ways of my family, and seek a Japanese woman to yield me my progeny. He shall live in the lands of the east, and be well tutored in his sacred trust to weave the best traditions of Japan and the Sacred South together, until such time as he (or, indeed his house, which will periodically require infusion of both Southern and Japanese bloodlines of note) can deliver to the South it's independence, either in this world or in space.  -Lettow April of 2011

Are you telling me you never stumble and fall across Muslims who are praying in the middle of the street? :P

Try rue Myrrha in Paris. Not far from the Sacré Cœur.  :P

Ban is selectively enforced, we shall say.

OTOH, sorry for Putin fan boys, but street prayer/namaz happens in Moscow too near the Mosque by Prospekt Mira station (Peace Avenue seems really fitting for the religion of peace).  :D

We are supposed to silence our church bells and cover crosses so Muslims do not get offended?

Many Mexican-Americans did vote for Trump.

I doubt Sam Elliot is a big Donald Trump fan.

I do like the last one (above) - finally gets to what all this immigrant demonization is really about - electoral politics.

Pro tip: if you want to get more votes out of a demo, try to refrain from calling their men "rapists"

Maybe not, but he plays pretty much precisely that role in the cringy Netflix sitcom with Ashton Kutcher.  Even without that, I can kind of see why they use him for those memes.  A gruff, old, mustachioed no-BS persona is the perfect delivery vehicle.

Something I noticed is that the Right has shifted from illegal immigrants, to just immigrants.
