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.
"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.

Obama gives your tax dollars to rebuild Muslim mosques around the world
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.
And THATS just the tip of the iceberg.
THIS will blow your mind!!
They should have 2010 up, but they dont. Thats where youll find Obamas largesse towards Muslim countries really go off the charts.
My thoughts and feelings exactly.
0bama supporting racists? No new news here.
Unsuspecting Americans contributing to thier own demise once again with the help of the politican who was elected represent Americans. Turn around can’t happen fast enough
“Rick Perrys fault.”
You beat me to it. Guys, gals, let’s stop all of this criticism. Admit that you just don’t like the sound of their last name. You heartless bigots, you.
In a word——nauseating.
You do know I’m a Perrywinkle?!
Most Mexican-Americans that I know HATE to be called “Chicanos.”
I assure you, the one that missed the thrust of the exchange wasn’t me... Oops.
Do you have a source for that? I want to add it to my files.
Not to worry.
I'm sure hundreds of patriots are ready to do what is necessary at the first opportunity.
Unless they can transport the murals to Mexico for safekeeping.
