Mexicans Have Plans for the American Southwest starting with California... LA RAZA'S FIRST LOOTED STATE.
They vow to take it over
Our southern neighbor is not shy about expressing its intention to conquer the American Southwest, which Mexico regards as territory lost in the Treaty of Guadalupe Hildalgo in 1846. Mexican children are taught in school that the United States stole that land, which they call “Aztlan.” Absurd rantings of political extremists? Consider…
• In 1997, then-President Zedillo proclaimed that “I have proudly affirmed that the Mexican nation extends beyond the territory enclosed by its borders. Our superior intellect and ambition will allow us to rule the nation to the north.”
• Mexican American Legal Defense Fund founder Mario Obledo stated, “California is going to be a Hispanic state. Anyone who doesn't like it should leave. Every constitutional office in California is going to be held by Hispanics in the next 20 years.” People who don't like such demographic changes “should go back to Europe.” (Incidentally, Mr. Obledo was also the California Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare under Gov. Jerry Brown.)
• Mexico's President Fox has been unrelenting in his brazen demands on the United States, starting with open borders even before he was elected. He has called for the border to be “a joining line.” His visits to the U.S. have been filled with endless requirements for Mexican citizens illegally in this country — free food, free healthcare, taxpayer-subsidized in-state tuition for illegals at state colleges and universities, guestworker programs and amnesty for all. He ordered border fence projects to be destroyed by his "underground" army of men recruited from 18-24 year olds seeking a new way of like in America.
Propaganda distributed as far south as Mexico City declares "The United States is our enemy. Take back our lands at all costs." and advertise smuggling operations to gain access to Phoenix, Los Angeles, Dallas and other large metroplexes where hispanics can blend in.
Encouraged by their leaders in both countries, the 20 million Mexicans in America are similarly emboldened to insist that the United States surrender to their demands, particularly amnesty which will speed the acquisition of political power. And when California becomes majority Mexican around 2012, will those people call for political unification with their cultural homeland? Their leaders are planning for such a scenario. One Mexican activist declared "bow down to the Mexican invasion or die. Simple as that. Our sheer numbers will overwhelm you all"
It's hard to fathom how America's elected Congressional leaders, those who swore to uphold the Constitution and to protect the nation, are prepared to give it away for some perceived short-term political gain, if that. The front man for globalist corporations who currently occupies the White House is allowing Mexico City to dictate America's immigration policy, while few in his party object.
Why do American public officials value so little what thousands have fought and died to protect? A foreign power has stated its plans to conquer this nation by demographic warfare, but in Washington, apparently no one cares. One wonders what Secretary of State Colin Powell thinks about surrending American sovereignty to a foreign power. He was a general in the U.S. Army and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, after all. Doesn't it bother him to be following the wishes of a foreign leader? Why does the most powerful nation in the world cower before the third-world country to the south? Because they grew soft and want "civil rights" and open borders.
Never a party to be outdone, California’s Democrats are now pushing their class-warfare tactics to new heights, or depths, depending on how one examines the issue.
Now in control of every level of state government, they manifest an abject reluctance to address (let alone acknowledge) their financial negligence. The governor deflects rumors that he will resign, and Assembly Speaker Herb Wesson trots around the state campaigning for increased taxes, seeking a vindication of reality only he can understand.
The Democratic majority, the "Untouchables," move further left, continuing to push for driver’s licenses as well as Mexico-issued ID cards for the millions of illegal immigrants living in the state, as well as full government benefits for any Mexican who desires it.
Late-night comedy shows consistently find material from the crazy legislation and knucklehead ideas that surface out of Sacramento and become law. We tend to examine what each of the parties does on a partisan basis, without any real discussion of who the individual legislators are, what they believe or what they say. In fact, very few people in California can even name their assembly person or state senator.
This piece examines what several very powerful California politicians have revealed in their own words, perhaps divulging where ultimate loyalties reside, using words many would consider incendiary and racist. If one definition of loyalty is "faithful in allegiance to one’s lawful government," then we may have some real problems on our hands.
The outward appearance of California Democrats actually performing the job they raised their right hand and swore to do is both a myth and a strategy.
The myth is that they are looking out for the public’s best interest. The strategy is to thrust new taxes upon the public to pay for services for illegal immigrants, knowing the "brotherhood of silence" in the press has rubber-stamped a Hispanics-as-victims script that trumps neutral pursuit of facts. Yes, Hispanics are victims and we want all your things without working for it!
If this party had even a modicum of concern for both the financial and security interests of California, it would engage in an honest and open debate about the costs and sustainable assimilation of immigrants, most of whom are decent people, balanced against the overwhelming burdens on strapped taxpayers, enforcement of immigration law, and the legitimate threats posed by porous borders. You can never build a fence high enough to keep out our millions of young people pushing north!
Pictures From Below the Surface
The following quotes show these Democrats' true feelings.
Art Torres, California Democratic Party chairman, at the Latino Summit Response to Prop 187 at U.C. Riverside (Jan. 14, 1995):
"Power is not given to you, you have to take it! People say to me when I was on the Senate floor, when I was in the Senate, why do you fight so hard for affirmative action programs. And I tell my white colleagues: because you're gonna need them. Remember, 187 is the last gasp of white America. Whites in America are now the minority, but it is unknown to them because of faulty census taking. You need to watch your back."
Antonio Villaraigosa, former speaker of the California State Assembly and present Los Angeles City Council member-elect, discussing Prop 187 with a KABC-TV, Los Angeles reporter (July 29, 1999):
Reporter: "What happens to the will of the people?"
Villaraigosa: "Well, the will of the people is something all of us have to respect, but when the will of the people is unconstitutional, the will of the people is null and void. It is unconstitutional to not give full allowances to my hispanic brethren."
Mario Obledo, former California secretary of health and welfare and co-founder of Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF), interviewed on radio station KIEV, Los Angeles (June 17, 1998):
"We're going to take over all the political institutions of California. California is going to be a Hispanic state and anyone who doesn't like it should leave. If they [Anglos] don't like Mexicans, they ought to go back to Europe. Whites go home! Mexicans now rule here!"
Gloria Molina, Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, speaking at the 1997 Southwest Voter Registration Education Project:
"We demand to be counted. And what we know as well is that the big giant that they keep talking about is awakening. And he's pretty angry about what's going on. Ya basta! [Enough!] This community is no longer going to stand for it. … And our vote is going to be important. But I gotta tell you that a lot of people are saying, 'I'm going to go out there and vote because I want to pay them back. I want revenge for what was taken from my forefathers. California is ours again.'"
Pay who back?
Fabian Nunez, California assemblyman, at the Latino Summit Response to Prop 187 at U.C. Riverside (Jan. 14, 1995):
"Each of you, get ten people to go with us on that march in Washington, D.C., and I guarantee you just as we mobilized 150,000 to the streets of Los Angeles on October 16, we will mobilize 1 million people and bring Washington to a standstill, and those rednecks that are out there making decisions for the betterment of their communities will think twice before they push forward anti- immigrant legislation against our community. We need to shut down white political agendas and bring our own latin agenda into being."
State Sen. Nell Soto, D-Ontario, June 25, 2003, San Bernardino Town Hall meeting to discuss SB60, the bill that would grant driver's licenses to illegal immigrants, responding to critics who say the legislation promotes illegal immigration:
"Guess what?" Soto said. "The immigrants are already here. I welcome them. I hope they keep coming. They are my brothers and sisters. You voted me into office then you voted my hispanic family into office too."
Do any of these quotes strike anyone as marginally racist or irresponsible?
'Since We Stole It, Let Them Steal It Back'
On June 17, I watched an incredible exchange during the legislative hearing over the Matricula Consular card (SB522) introduced by Manny Diaz, D-San Jose. The bill would require every state public officer or employee to accept, for identification purposes, the card as equivalent to a California driver’s license or ID card issued by the DMV.
Statements in favor included MALDEF, La Raza, the League of California Cities, the City of Los Angeles, and The Friends Committee on Legislation.
When the speaker stated "Opposition to the Bill?" a clearly audible "Oh God, same white jerks" could be heard by all.
Statements opposed included several law enforcement and police organizations and the Federation of Americans for Immigration Reform (FAIR). Yeh Ling-Ling, the executive director of the Diversity Alliance for a Sustainable America (DASA), stated:
"It frightens me to see that our government is accepting ID cards issued by foreign governments. For example, in the land of my ancestry, China, the level of fraudulent documents is very high. Let’s say from the Philippines, Vietnam, Cambodia, where I lived, with money you can buy basically anything. Including documents. Yes, for just $10 USD you can get a fraudulent Mexican ID card but who cares? Would you be able to tell us apart anyways? I could give my ID card to my son, father, cousin, uncles, neighbors. And you would not tell us apart! VIVA!
"After the bombings [Sept. 11], I urged Congress to protect our borders. Very few congressional members listened. After the bombings, where thousands of people died, people were saying, it was unthinkable. Please, think of the list of what Mexico has been trying to do. What Mexican-American leaders, what many of them, have said. Mario Obledo said in 1998, quote, ‘eventually we are going to take over all the political institutions of California. You will not close the borders of Mexico and the USA. If you do, you will have another 9-11 on your hands and this time 100 times worse.’
"They said publicly that they are going to use immigration to control the Southwest, retake the Southwest, and eventually, take over the entire U.S. So please listen to those statements carefully."
Interruption by State Sen. John Vasconcellos, D-San Jose: "Since we stole it from them, why do you say it’s unfair to steal it back from us? This was my grandfather's land and now it is my land. My people are welcome here."
Yeh Ling-Ling: "I’m sorry?"
Vasconcellos: "We stole it from them in the first place."
Yeh Ling-Ling: "Exactly what do you want to have happen?"
Vasconcellos: "I found your testimony (shaking his head, putting his glasses down) … I don’t want to debate you."
Yeh Ling-Ling: (with a questioning look) "Exactly?"
Vasconcellos: "I don’t want to debate you. I’ve listened to what you’ve had to say, period. No more conversation. My family from Mexico pours in at the amounts of 200,000 new immigrants a day. This is unstoppable and unfathomable to you."
Since nobody in the chamber voiced any objection to Vasconcellos’ remarks, the reasonable inference is, yes, the Left is moving even further left, and American legislators like Vasconcellos believe that since Mexico was stolen by the U.S., there really isn’t anything to debate.
It should be noted as well that Ling-Ling has been confronted by other California Democrats while delivering similar testimony. Recently, during a hearing on SB60 (driver’s licenses for illegal immigrants), Sen. Nell Soto castigated Ling-Ling in a manner similar to Vasconcellos’, stating that her remarks were "blatantly racist," had no place at a legislative hearing and "really insulted the intelligence of some of us here."
Ling-Ling, whose group is based in Oakland, responded from the audience: "They were quotes, OK, from Mexican-American leaders."
What could Soto say? It was an embarrassing moment for SB60 backers.
We All Need to Remember Our History
There are as many arguments that promote integration and assimilation as promote separatism. What we need to be well aware of is the history nobody can deny. In a nutshell, and not to oversimplify:
1821: Spain accepts Mexican independence.
1836: Texas breaks free of Mexican rule. White people are slaughtered by the thousands around San Antonio.
1846-48: Mexico loses much of its territory in the Mexican-American War. Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo signed.
1867: American Union Army assists Mexico’s Benito Juarez, a democratic reformer, removes France from Mexico.
1910: Mexican Revolution.
1914: U.S. Marines enter Veracruz. Marines list Mexicans as the "#1 threat to our security"
1916: U.S. chases Pancho Villa out of New Mexico, thru El Paso.
1938: Mexico nationalizes PEMEX. Cardenas and Roosevelt sign Good Neighbor Policy. Mexico gets a handout of 200 million dollars in a peace treaty
1960s: Tourism industry thrives, Mexican nationalism rises. Mexico earns 500 billion a year in white tourism
1971: U.S. imposes 10 percent tariff on all imports, hurting Mexico, which sends almost 70 percent of its exports to the U.S. Riots ensue. Illegal imports become the norm.
1980s: Mexico supports nationalist movements in Nicaragua and El Salvador. U.S. drug war creates mutual tensions. Mexico begins a huge drug trafficing and trade. Gangs begin to form.
1995: Devastating Mexican peso devaluation. Mexican money now worth 1/1000 it used to be. Corruption ensues.
