Moreover what would be the interest on 15 million dollars America paid for the area that is now known as the American Southwest? Of course everything America and Americans built would either have to be paid for, or we would have to take it with us. We would leave Aztlan it in it’s natural baron state, where only 1% of the Mexican population resided when America purchased it after defeating Mexico in The Mexican-American War. A war America fought with 7,000 troops compared to Mexico’s 20,000.
The act of treating people of different races as inferiors. Racism can be displayed through Prejudice, Bigotry, and Discrimination.
A person who believes that for no other reason other than being born of a certain skin color and DNA, they are born with an inherited intelligence that is superior to that of any member of any another race. That superior intelligence gives the racist the ability to use logic and reason, to problem solve, and make morally sound decisions leaving out emotion and aggression unlike those of other races.
Racists believe the lack of inherited intelligence at birth leads to uncontrollable and immoral behavior.
That is textbook racism, Speaker Ryan.
The concept of La Raza connotes that the mestizo [of mixed race, usually the child of a person of Spanish descent and an American Indian] is a distinct race and not Caucasian, as is technically the case.” The full term,” which was coined by the Mexican scholar (and Mexican secretary of public education) José Vasconcelos (1882-1959), is “la raza,” meaning “the cosmic people.” Guillermo Lux and Maurilio Vigil (professors of history and political science, respectively, at New Mexico Highlands University) note in their 1991 book, Aztlan: Essays on the Chicano Homeland:
“The concept of La Raza can be traced to the ideas and writings of Jose Vasconcelos, the Mexican theorist who developed the theory of la raza cosmica (the cosmic or super race) at least partially as a minority reaction to the Nordic notions of racial superiority. Vasconelos developed a systematic theory which argued that climatic and geographic conditions and mixture of Spanish and Indian races create.”
Victor Davis Hanson Author of “Mexifornia” and “Illliberal Immigration” both seminole and brave works regarding the massive problems we face as a nation with unassimilated immigration. He explains the etymology of the word, which gives us great insight to the groups beliefs.
“Barack Obama meets often with the National Council of La Raza. Does anybody know any political group that has a word that means race? The National Council of a Race? La Raza is one of those rare words in European language that denotes something other than your language and where your feet are. There’s not very many languages that have it, however, German is one, a volk. Remember when Hitler took that 19century common word. It’s an old world in the German language, but volk to a German under Hitler meant not just that you could speak German or you lived in Germany. Jews did that. In 1934 there was a great compendium of all the Jews who won the Iron Cross in World War I and it was several thousand. It meant nothing. They were not part of the volk because they did not look a particular way. So the Nazis said. That’s what Raza is. If you go to Mexico and you are Chinese or you are blonde and you say I want to become a citizen of Mexico and speak Spanish, you’re not part of the Raza community. Where did the term come from? They say it means community. There’s many words in Spanish. Pueblo means community. It comes from Latin radix. Radix means root or race. Where was it popularized? It was popularized in the 1930s. Where did these idiots in the ’60s in the La Raza movement get the term? They got it from Francisco Franco and fascist Spain. He wrote a novel and had a movie made. What was the title? “La Raza” and then people in Portugal emulated that, in Portuguese Raza, and then even Mussolini added a Z and had two Zs and he got on Raza and if you look at the literature it’s always on the idea that the Iberian spirit, the Italian spirit, is superior to anybody because of the race.
“So we have this movement whose pedigree is entirely racist, its origins are racists and yet we’re considered if you question it that you’re racist. It’s lala-land but that’s part of the left-wing support. The other part is entirely cynical. That’s Barack Obama. That’s John Kerry, that’s Hillary Clinton and that idea is old states that were red — New Mexico, Colorado — are now purple or they’re flipping blue. And because of the anchor baby policies of the U.S., interpretations of the U.S. Constitution, somebody comes here illegally, has children and they are nursed on the idea that the federal government owes them something; the entitlement, the Democratic Party that facilitated that, the right-wing, the Republicans are against me, and they create familial traditions that vote Democratic.”
I guess what you did Speaker Ryan, was of the cynical strain. You used the false charge of racism, a leftist tactic, against someone representing your party for the presidency. A pre-emptive move to distance yourself from Trump, a political hedge I assume to shield yourself if he were to implode. But as I tweeted you that day, how could you ever from that point on support him as a candidate, he’s a textbook racist! I personally could never support a legitimate racist, no Conservative ever should.
Racism is a deep seeded ideology that is usually taught or handed down within a family or culture, but can also be developed and supported through government institutions. The irony here is our government, especially the Democratic party endorses La Raza, the NCLR receives government grant money to perpetuate ethnic separatism and superiority. Yet you saw fit to level the charge of racism against someone who was rightly calling attention to a person who is in a position of great power, that has no problem associating his name and reputation with a Law Group using the Ethnic Separatist and Supremacist term La Raza. Racism is too serious of a word and the ideology that it espouses, to use frivolously or improperly. It’s despicable to attack someone’s character slandering them as a racist, especially for political gain.
I don’t know Judge Curiel, but when you align yourself with the ideology of La Raza you’re either a poser looking to use the network of La Raza’s activist community that is extensive and who without a doubt know the meaning of the term, to advance your career on the basis of your ethnicity, or maybe you are a true believer in La Raza’s doctrines of superiority. Either way a Judge who belongs to an association that uses La Raza to define itself, is suspect in any case involving Hispanics or Latinos opposing in court a member of another race or ethnicity. Needless to say Judge Curiel has no business presiding over a case involving Donald Trump.
La Raza is not something you are born with like skin color or DNA. La Raza stands alone as an ideology of racial and ethnic superiority. It’s someone’s choice to study, understand, and conclude that it’s doctrines are valid.
The National Council of La Raza or the San Diego Lawyers Association of La Raza are just political vehicles that advance it’s bigoted and separatist doctrine. The KKK had judges, lawyers, Police Officers, and Politicians, the only difference between the groups at this point is a façade of respectability, professionalism, and non-violence. The National Council isn’t going to get caught up in street violence, but schools they sponsor and curriculum they create incites hatred and bigotry displayed at many of Donald Trump’s rallies.
La Raza has many secondary organizations, MEChA being one of those. MEChA isn’t at all shy about their goals, or their views of other races. Their founding principles are contained in these words, “El Plan Espiritual de Aztlan” (The Spiritual Plan for Aztlan):
“In the spirit of a new people that is conscious not only of its proud historical heritage but also of the brutal gringo invasion of our territories, we, the Chicano inhabitants and civilizers of the northern land of Aztlan from whence came our forefathers, reclaiming the land of their birth and consecrating the determination of our people of the sun, declare that the call of our blood is our power, our responsibility, and our inevitable destiny. … Aztlan belongs to those who plant the seeds, water the fields, and gather the crops and not to the foreign Europeans. … We are a bronze people with a bronze culture. Before the world, before all of North America, before all our brothers in the bronze continent, we are a nation, we are a union of free pueblos, we are Aztlan. For La Raza todo. Fuera de La Raza nada.”
That closing two-sentence motto should be chilling to everyone who values equal rights for all. It says: “For The Race everything. Outside The Race, nothing.” Although their end game isn’t all that pleasant for non-Chicanos, not unlike the Kafir in Islam.
Miguel Perez of Cal State-Northridge’s MEChA chapter has been quoted as saying: “The ultimate ideology is the liberation of Aztlan. Communism would be closest [to it]. Once Aztlan is established, ethnic cleansing would commence: Non-Chicanos would have to be expelled — opposition groups would be quashed because you have to keep power.
Those who promote La Raza’s ideology now wear suits, have PhDs, refrain from after hours parties that involve religious imagery, funny costumes, and rituals of arson. Occasionally individual members go off the reservation as the president of the National Council of La Raza said in 1995: “The biggest problem we have is a cultural clash, a clash between our values and the values in American society.” He then went on to spell out the superiority of Hispanic values to American values. In similar fashion, Lionel Sosa, a successful Mexican-American businessman in Texas, in 1998 hailed the emerging Hispanic middle-class professionals who look like Anglos, but whose “values remain quite different from an Anglo’s.
Promoters/Believers of La Raza now work within the system, some are politicians working overtime to import as many unassimilated immigrants as possible before a predictable an imminent backlash becomes a reality. Until then they continue creating disharmony, fostering alienation, and parallel societies, gambling that they haven’t overplayed the almost always winning hand containing the race, xenophobe, and nativist cards.
Diversity of cultures is not our strength, nor has it been the strength of any successful nation. Creating a culture that has attracted so many from different ethnic backgrounds, languages, religions, and races who willingly shed their inherited culture or national identity to become Americans, that has been our strength.
La Raza is just another bigoted anti-American ideology with delusions of grandeur, bearing no basis in fact or success, only promoting policies of segregation and division. La Raza is only inclusive in an Orwellian sense.
Speaker Ryan you owe Donald Trump a serious apology. False charges of racism have been a cancer on our society and continue to rot our culture. It diminishes the horrible and very real racism so many that still live amongst us have had to endure.
Trump is no racist. Even though some time has passed in think an apology would go along way, and it’s the right thing to do.
