Actually, this video was posted in 2006, around the same time the Portuguese were deported.

Yet the tamales were welcomed with open arms for showing up unasked for. ....nice deport the Europeans but welcome criminals and terrorists from the Third World.

I have a tale to tell of a Portuguese deportation. More of a short story, really:

There were these 4 young guys who decided theyd do the European backpacking tour after first-year of university. So, off they went, toured around and some months later arrived in Portugal. Lets call these boys Hughey, Barry, Johnny and , err, Remmy. One night in Lisbon, the 4 boys were out having a few beers at the bar and 4 young ladies came up to their table and introduced themselves (not surprising, good looking boys, Remmy especially). The girls were from Ottawa and had recognized the Queen’s jacket Hughey was wearing. So they hung out and had some laughs and Hughey and Johnny asked 2 of the girls if they’d like to go dancing down the block at the disco. Barry and Remmy agreed to hang out and wait for the other 2 girls who’d gone to the bar.

When the girls get back, like, 2 minutes later, Barry and Remmy ask them if they want to go dancing with the others. They say “sure” and they pound their drinks and leave the bar. They walk a short way down the street and it’s a melee, a massive street fight on. Right in the middle of it are Hughey and Johnny. So Barney (that’s what they called Barry most of the time) and Remmy dive in to help out their buddies. It was retarded! Hordes of little Portuguese guys. They’d run in and take a punch and disappear. The boys were flailing, their elbows swinging like a basketball player ripping a rebound, just to keep the attackers off. At one point Hughey had a guy come at him with a broken bottle. Another of the Portuguese had a goddamn sword. Somebody took a Mickey Mantle baseball swing at Johnny’s head with a 2x4. It hit Johnny’s shoulder just enough to graze the blow or he’d have been dead right there. Remmy was grabbed from behind. He turned and punched the guy square in the mouth, immediately recognizing that the guy with the busted face was a Lisbon police officer. Remmy put his hands up and was the first dragged away to the cop car and taken to jail.

A half-hour or so later, Barry gets tossed into the cell. Barry and Remmy are beat-the-fuck-up, but have NO idea what happened or why there was a fight or anything...clueless. Barry goes right to sleep, Remmy not for some time later. Then Remmy is grabbed awake and drilled square in the face with an elbow (must have been that cop from the street earlier). Remmy knelt on his hands and knees and looked at the cop’s gun on his hip and thought...SERIOUSLY THOUGHT about going for the gun. He was almost sure it was life or death right there.

Hours later, Johnny arrives. He’d been taken to the hospital for stitches from the 2x4. Remmy and Barney, OF COURSE, want to know right away what the fuck that was all about, and wondered: did Johnny know that the cops were going to kill the lot of them straight away? So Johnny explained that he and Hughey had kicked the mirrors off a car, drunk, walking to the club. There was a house-party in a second-floor flat overlooking the street and someone had seen them vandalize a party-goer’s car. The party emptied out on the street to confront Johnny and Hughey and the fracas was on. Hughey was finally captured and dragged to the klink shortly thereafter.

Sometime early the next morning (this is Sunday morning now) they finally get a cop that can speak English down to see the boys. They literally take the 4 kids up to the roof of the police station, like straight out of a Gene Hackman movie, and tell them: “Here’s your passports, go to your billet, get your shit, get your Europasses and get the fuck out of Portugal today or you’ll be going before a judge tomorrow”. That’s my Portuguese deportation story, as told to me by someone who was actually there.

Lemmy, that story rocks! I just pictured my little Portuguese uncles and cousins being tossed around in that fight!

I realise that, but I found it interesting that someone posted it again on : Mon Jan 31, 2011 4:07 pm, likely in aid of all the negative TV campaign crap that's already started in anticipation of a spring election.

So, I guess if the Conservatives want to use real Iggy quotes from 04 and on, someone thought why not use old CBC satire clips for the same reason.
