Exclusive: The Truth About 'La Raza'

Quote:

"Behind the respectable front of the National Council of La Raza lies the
real agenda of the La Raza movement, the agenda that led to those thousands
of illegal immigrants in the streets of American cities, waving Mexican
flags, brazenly defying our laws, and demanding concessions.

Key among the secondary organizations is the radical racist group Movimiento
Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan, or Chicano Student Movement of Aztlan
(MEChA), one of the most anti-American groups in the country, which has
permeated U.S. campuses since the 1960s, and continues its push to carve a
racist nation out of the American West.

One of America's greatest strengths has always been taking in immigrants
from cultures around the world, and assimilating them into our country as
Americans. By being citizens of the U.S. we are Americans first, and only,
in our national loyalties.

This is totally opposed by MEChA for the hordes of illegal immigrants
pouring across our borders, to whom they say:

"Chicano is our identity; it defines who we are as people. It rejects the
notion that we...should assimilate into the Anglo-American melting
pot...Aztlan was the legendary homeland of the Aztecas ... It became
synonymous with the vast territories of the Southwest, brutally stolen from
a Mexican people marginalized and betrayed by the hostile custodians of the
Manifest Destiny." (Statement on University of Oregon MEChA Website, Jan. 3,
2006)

MEChA isn't at all shy about their goals, or their views of other races.
Their founding principles are contained in these words in "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 is chilling to everyone who values equal
rights for all. It says: "For The Race everything. Outside The Race,
nothing."

It's the Mexicans that the American Indians are pissed at!

Mexico & The Scalp Industry

Between 1835 and the 1880s, the Mexican authorities paid private armies to hunt Native Americans, paying per kill and using scalps as receipts. The practice began when the Mexican government could no longer provide adequate protection to its citizens from the marauding Apaches and Comanches.

Here are a few myths about illegal aliens. They only do the jobs Americans won't do. They are only here to give their families a better life. They add value to our economy. We're a country of immigrants. Diversity is a strength. We gotta pass comprehensive amnesty in order to secure our border. Our crops would rot in the fields without illegal aliens. Amnesty will help save SS. The American people want illegal aliens. John McCain hates them. Oops, I'm just testing you to see if you're paying attention. John McCain loves illegal aliens and hasn't gotten anything right since Moby Dick was only a minnow. If he was my brother I'd smack him around to try to knock some sense into him.

It appears you read my post and put a lot of thought into it. But you don't seem to put a lot of thought into anything else.
The CDC issued a warning four years ago that the bedbug infestation at four- and five-star hotels coincided exactly to the time these hotels started hiring illegal aliens as maids. Just think about it, they say they came from international travelers, but there have always been international travelers. Let the illegal aliens into hotel rooms to change the sheets and you get bedbugs. Simple and logical. About six weeks later, the Obama Administration made the CDC retract its comments. But, how else would bedbugs get into a five-star hotel if they weren't carried in by illegals???

They're not listed on the "hate map" because they are not "hate groups." Why is it difficult to understand that?
They're not listed because the SPLC is bias!

This is the same thing as "Privateering" from which the word "Pirate" comes from.
England was notorious for using privateers to attach Spanish gallions heading to spain with gold and silver from the Americas. Many of those pirate battles took place in the Caribean.
Now as for the sccalping, it was brought over here by the Russians during the fur trade. It may true the Mexican government used that practice as you state (I haven't researched it to know if it's true) but the Apaches for certain were already familiar with the practice. It was taught to them by the Russians and the Apaches also used it. So the Apaches and Comanches were in on the game. They were just as guilty of the practice.
Got a link?

By the way, that libray I went to, it's not frequented by Mexicans. It's frequented by Whites, Blacks, and Asians.
I should know, I'm the one who was there and saw who else was there. There are always more Whites, Blacks, and Asians than Mexicans.
So, you continue to pass along false information.
So how long were you there counting Whites, Blacks, and Asians ?

If you can call Americans gringos, then i can call illegal aliens splcs, splc.

Hey dog, I'm a gringo and I can outpick, outwork and outdo an illegal alien at anything but putting up with the smell of a poultry plant. But there are other gringos who don't mind that smell at all.

People without credibly verified documents in the here dont get food stamp. When are you guys going to learn at all and stop that tea party nonsense.

It's a myth that this country needs more illegal aliens with college degrees in Hispanic studies. We let them sneak into this country, mistake, we feed them, clothe them, house them and doctor them, mistake, and on top of all that we invent a major, Hispanic studies, that will allow these, holding the book upside down, dummies to go to college.

Here's the definition of myth:
"a traditional story, esp. one concerning the early history of a people or explaining some natural or social phenomenon, and typically involving supernatural beings or events"
The key here is "a traditional story." Now, does that definition describe anything you wrote in your post?
Let's see if I can help you understand. You say "it's a myth that this country needs more illegal aliens...." For this to be a myth it has to be a traditional story.
I've never heard this "traditional story," have you? I don't think so. So it's not a myth.

Throwing used toilet paper in a trash can IS a Mexican thing. You see, in spite of what all the illegal alien lovers say about their ability to work, they still haven't figured out how to build a useable sewer system in many places.
