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 can fix that mural real good, and I’d do it for free.
They are welcome to try to come take it.
We've played this game before.
Don’t you know what this is? Obama is buying Latino votes; plain and simple. End of discussion.
The election can not happen too soon for me.
IMHO it had better be Perry or Newt. (maybe both)
Why the outrage? What does one expect from supporting the RINO-Dem’s?
Your gas tax at work providing jobs for starving artists.
I will help you
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.
Thats some ugly sh!t
Looks like a bad acid trip.
Rick Perry’s fault.
Aztlan can be experienced just south of our border. These kooks should go there, and take their idiotic art work with them.
How did that cost 1.6M?
I swear that looks like SATAN above the naked chica with the the barrel of a pistol in her hand pointing at the viewer of the mural.
Note Che Guevara in there and some Brown Beret/La Raza chick and dude below that.
