OUTRAGE: Feds Spend $1.6 Million to Restore "La Raza" Murals Celebrating "Aztlan", Che Guevara
Stand With Arizona ^ | 01-18-2012 | John Hill

Stand With Arizona

On the heels of victory against the racist "La Raza" ethnic studies program in Tucson, Arizona, this shocking item from San Diego shows how far we have yet to go to defund La Raza and its divisive, anti-American influence in America.

At a time of record debt, rampant unemployment, and a financially strained citizenry - our Federal government somehow can afford a whopping $1,600,000 to restore "Chicano" murals depicting communist butchers Che Guevara and Fidel Castro, and with maps featuring "Aztlan" - the mythical "nation" that La Raza activists demand be taken from the United States to create a new ethnically-pure proto-Mexican state.

The funds are being provided by the Department of Transportation and is called a "federal transportation enhancement" (as if there are no unsafe bridges across America that could use the funds!)

The murals begun as Mexican nationalist graffiti in the 1970s. The graffiti was first painted on highway underpasses in an attempt to stop the construction of a California Highway Patrol office there. Activists proclaimed the area a "Chicano park" and appeasing leaders - fearing violence - "negotiated" with activists to keep the murals and cancel the police station.

The Federal money will pay to restore 18 panels. 9 have been restored so far. Funding was first approved in 2002, but (wiesely) held up because of the frequent mention of the racist "Aztlan". But with Obama and his La Raza sidekicks Hilda Solis and Cecilia Muñoz in power, the funding is now going ahead full steam. Here are some selections:

Above: One panel depicting the mythical "Aztlan", carving up nearly half of America into land that Chicano activists claim was "stolen" from Mexico. Also a lovely image of naked, armed woman and some creepy 'baby' with severed arm holding a machete.

I see that they have claimed the land I own as 'My Land'.

They are welcome to try to come take it.

We've played this game before.

What can one expect from a town infested with corrupt liberal Democrats? They're scum, and they're proud of it.

The FBI has seized 10 years of Rio Nuevo records stored at the Tucson Convention Center.

Their "Downtown Revitalization Project" has wasted $230 Million so far. They're just getting warmed up.

A true patriot will go out at night, with appropriate back up watch w/walkie talkie communication or hand signs, and get away car(s), and DEFACE THESE COMMUNIST-RECONQUISTADOR MONSTROSITIES COMPLETELY, and leave little American flags in the grass behind, then immediately call the media once clear of the area. Truly, there are good men and women still left in our country who will stand up for their Republic under attack, on their soil and do such a heroic and patriotic thing, even if it amounted to a misdemeanor (which it will not, since the way I see it, somebody was allowed to spray paint something publicly under Free Speech Laws, then someone else is protected to paint something over it expressing their Free Speech Rights as well, equal protection under the law and all.) Truly.

Add (East) Los Angeles, California, United States of America to the list. This one, with Che, in East LA. I bet it is also federally protected, and somehow financed by our tax monies. We are becoming Venezuela:

Be careful what you wish for, Perry is a fan of La Raza and its leadership

Just a few of the quotes from Perry praising La Raza when he addressed their national convention:

"I'm grateful for the investment that La Raza has made in the community. Your economic development efforts and advocacy for education are making a huge difference all across this country. "

"God bless you for being here. God bless all of you for the things that you do to keep America the most fabulous country in the world."

More of that garbage. This one says "It's MY Land", in Spanish. This is seditious balkanization and should be crushed. These murals should be "spiffed up" real nice and clean-like, IMHO:

Note Che Guevara in there and some Brown Beret/La Raza chick and dude below that.

Check this clearly COMMUNIST DRIVEL being painted up there in San Dieto, on Obama Administration federal tax dollars!

"Camarillo said she's paying close attention as her friends come back to paint. "It's really amazing. I've learned so much," she said. "Because though I was here, I've been here since day one, I wasn't actually standing there with the artists and watching them paint back then. It was just, you know, happening, and 'Yeah, that's cool.'" It's a complicated thing to invite artists with four more decades of experience under their belts to revisit work they made in their youth. Should the artist just repaint the same lines he painted in the 1970s, or bring to the table new techniques, new colors? The new Chicano Park could look significantly brighter and more modern than the old one as the restoration continues. The mural called "Mujer Cosmica" is a good example. The 1975 version features a woman painted white in the center with words and phrases like "ALLENDE" and "VENCEREMOS" written in capital letters all over her arms, legs and torso. But the newly painted version includes other words and phrases in a more modern scripted tattoo style, phrases like "BARRIO LOGAN SI SE PUEDE" and "VIVA LA RAZA." In place of "AMOUR" on her chest is the word "LIBERTAD." The new version fleshes out the color and shading of her skin and the background, retaining the original concept but appearing quite different."

Note. Salvador ALLENDE, the MARXIST leader of Chile who was ousted in a patriotic coup in 1970. And "Venceremos", the battle cry of Fidel Castro and Che Guevara, taken up by the Sandinistas in Nicaragua and Hugo Chavez' Socialist United Party of Venezuela.

Enemy within folks. Enemy within.

In fact, the phrase "Viva La Raza" could be construed as a federal hate crime, as it is racist in nature, and yet is federally funded. There would be a clause I am sure to prohibit this. This would be like the Feds financing a Klan mural in Louisiana saying "White Power!"

JUST ADD IT TO THE LIST OF BILLIONS OF AMERICAN TAX PAYER DOLLARS THAT OMUSLIM HAS THROWN AWAY WHILE THREATENING TO WITHOUT SENIOR’S SS AND GUTTING THE MILITARY:

Obamas 2009 Supplemental Appropriations for Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Pandemic Flu was revised and passed by the full committee.
It gives billions http://creepingsharia.wordpress.com/2009/05/1...
of U.S. taxpayer dollars to countries and entities that support Sharia law and/or harbor, hide and support those who want to destroy the U.S. and our allies.
Read the summary from David Obeys office that was quietly released last week with nary a word from any media.

$3.6 billion, matching the request, to expand and improve capabilities of the Afghan security forces

$400 million, as requested, to build the counterinsurgency capabilities of the Pakistani security forces

Afghanistan:$1.52 billion,$86 million above the request

West Bank and Gaza:$665 million in bilateral economic, humanitarian, and security assistance for the West Bank and Gaza

Jordan:$250 million,$250 million above the request, including $100 million for economic and $150 million for security assistance

Egypt:$360 million,$310 million above the request, including $50 million for economic assistance,$50 million for border security, and $260 million for security assistance

Pakistan:$1.9 billion,$591 million above the request

Iraq:$968 million,$336 million above the request

Oversight:$20 million,$13 million above the request, to expand oversight capacity of the State Department, USAID, and the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan to review programs in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq
Lebanon:$74 million

International Food Assistance:$500 million,$200 million above the request, for PL 480 international food assistance to alleviate suffering during the global economic crisis

Refugee Assistance:$343 million,$50 million above the request, including humanitarian assistance for Gaza. Funding for the UN Relief and Works Agency programs in the West Bank and Gaza is limited to $119 million (Note: Gaza = Hamas)

Disaster Assistance:$200 million to avert famines and provide life-saving assistance during natural disasters and for internally displaced people around the world, including Somalia, Zimbabwe, Ethiopia, the Middle East and South Asia

Peacekeeping:$837 million for United Nations
peacekeeping operations, including an expanded mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and a new mission in Chad and the Central African Republic

Department of Justice:$17 million, matching the request, for counter-terrorism activities and to provide training and assistance for the Iraqi criminal justice system
Obama gives your tax dollars to rebuild Muslim mosques around the world
http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/... #

ACCORDING TO THE ASSOCIATED PRESS, THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION WILL GIVE AWAY NEARLY $6 MILLION OF AMERICAN TAX DOLLARS TO RESTORE 63 HISTORIC AND CULTURAL SITES, INCLUDING ISLAMIC MOSQUES AND MINARETS, IN 55 NATIONS. See the State Department document here.
http://exchanges.state.gov/media/pdfs/office-...

And THAT’S just the tip of the iceberg.
THIS will blow your mind!!

http://gbk.eads.usaidallnet.gov/
They should have 2010 up, but they don’t. That’s where you’ll find Obama’s largesse towards Muslim countries really go off the charts.

Thanks for the list.

Unfortunately it's not just Obama blowing tax payer $$.

In addition to enabling Jihadis, hundreds of billions of dollars have been spent on:

Anchor babies, illegals, new immigrants, and their respective extended families,
 (illegals alone cost $1/4 - $1/3 trillion NET per year; low skill immigrants cost ~$ 20,000 Net per household)
Fixing up ramshackle Mexican trucks that will put Americans out of work,
Sponsoring green technology overseas,
Paying college tuition for students from China ($ 8 billion per year),
Setting up CDC labs overseas,
Paying for post doctoral degrees for Indian scientists,
Billions in tax credits for illegals from the IRS,
Hiring foreign workers for Oregon Forestry companies under TARP,

The entire Department of Education ($ 71,333,000,000),
The entire Department of Housing and Urban Development ($ 46,277,000,000),
International Assistance Programs ($ 25,502,000,000),
The entire Department of Energy ($ 34,215,000,000),
Blatant fraud in Medicare and Medicaid ($ 900 billion) which IBM offered to fix for free

Unless they can transport the murals to Mexico for safekeeping.

I just realized that my post was removed .

In case you didn't get to see it before removal, here are the links. I put it together in a hurry, so if anything is missing, let me know.

Hundreds of billions of dollars have been spent on:

Anchor babies, illegals, new immigrants, and their respective extended families,
 (illegals alone cost $1/4 - $1/3 trillion NET per year;
This 2010 study shows the NET cost of illegal aliens = $113 billion. It is based upon the totally out dated number of 15 million illegals. The actual number is at least between 30 and 40 million. Hence the net cost = between 1/4 and 1/3 trillion per year. On page 4 there is a break down by state.

 Low skill immigrants cost ~$ 20,000 Net per household [4,550,000 households in 2007])
This 2007 study show a NET cost of $19,588 per low wage immigrant household for a total of 4,550,000 households. Annual total = ~ $9.1 Billion.

See Table A6 – summary. I have just listed link, not made clickable.
