. In my last post, we saw that Raul "Boycott Arizona" Grijalva (D-Az 3) is still a traitor to his constituency and to America, and would not hesitate to declare economic war on Arizona again
. Of course, the group of people he thought were being marginalized, the ones at the core of the SB 1070 law, are not American citizens, they are illegal aliens.
In the actual quote, he states that his mandate comes by his being elected. Elected by who? American citizens, not illegal aliens. And yet SB 1070 was a "direct attack" on illegal aliens, not American citizens.
"We are elected and sometimes, there is a direct attack, there is a direct issue that affects a group of people that are being marginalized. . . I’m not going to tolerate it. I’m going to speak up every time."
|Raul "Boycott Arizona" Grijalva|
In a nutshell, he sees himself elected, in part, to defend illegal aliens flooding into this country.
[Chasing a rabbit that may have a lot of meat on it, one can ask, "...are there other groups who may be marginalized in Grijalva's district?" The 28% of Yumans who are unemployed? The ranchers whose lands are trashed and overrun by illegal aliens? People who are hoping the Rosemont mine will bring them jobs while Grijalva fights against it because it might hurt the environment? Conservative journalists Grijalva swears at and rudely walks away from refusing to answer questions?]
I also conclude that Grijalva is a traitor because he supports the "liberation of Aztlan
," and the deliberate dissemination of La Raza's
propaganda through the establishment of MEChA student organizations
I said a lot in that sentence, and to many of you, this is not news. But let me break it down. Aztlan is the name of the region of North (and South) America belonging to the descendants of the ancient people who dwelt there. Namely, La Raza ("the Race")
. [Another rabbit - how can anyone be blind to the inherent racism in this claim?]. La Raza's goal is to exercise economic and political independence, and "self-determination for the people of Aztlan."
MEChA (Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlán
) is a primary means of accomplishing this, through "education," or more accurately, indoctrination. Most colleges and universities have MEChA chapters as student "cultural" clubs. There are also groups of "Brown Berets
" (brown shirts?) that represent a military arm of La Raza.
Remember the big hoorah over Mexican-American Studies in the Tucson Unified School District
? This is what that was about . The State of Arizona decided it didn't want it's young people being brainwashed by MEChA (here's an update
At this point, rather than boring you further with a post that's too long already, please bear with me and let me present the words of MEChA itself. I have taken great pains to not take these quotes out of context nor to cut out the flavor of the language; rather, consider this a summary.
This from the National MEChA Philosophy statement
"Chicanismo does not seek to use the word "Chicano" as an umbrella term when representing all of "La Familia de La Raza". Rather, Chicanismo seeks to educate our barrios and campos about our history y cultura to further create a movement of self-determination for the Liberation of Aztlán, something that Hispanic and Latino has yet to represent or recognize...
"Chicanismo results from a decision based on a political consciousness for our Raza, to dedicate oneself to building a Chicana/Chicano Nation...
"Chicanismo involves a personal decision to reject assimilation and work towards the preservation of our cultural heritage. Recognizing that all people are potential Chicanas and Chicanos, we encourage those interested in developing a total commitment to our movement for self-determination for the people of Aztlán to join Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlán (MEChA)...
"Thus, by all means necessary, We Chicana/Chicano estudiantes or Aztlán, dedicate ourselves to taking our educational destiny into our own hands through the process of spreading Chicanismo, in the spirit of carnalismo...
"As Mechistas, we proclaim that we are the people of Aztlán and that we recognize our indigenous unity with our brothers and sisters of Ixachitzlan (Alaska to Tierra del Fuego)...
"MEChA pledges itself to reach out to the community and schools, to establish new educational opportunities...
"We, as Mechistas must dismantle the co-optation of Raza students from becoming "corporate Hispanics" claiming to be leaders of our community with no understanding of El Pueblo Chicano. Instead, MEChA seeks to train future community leaders to be consciously committed to serve the people of Aztlán...
"Finally, as Mechistas, we vow to work for the liberation of Aztlán, leading to socioeconomic and political justice for our Gente. MEChA then, is more than a name; it is a spirit of unity by comadrismo/carnalismo, and a resolution to undertake a struggle for liberation! Tierra y Libertad!"
