Mother of Dem convention star Castro called Alamo defenders 'drunks,' 'crooks'
Foxnews ^ | 9/5/2012

Posted on 09/05/2012 6:30:46 PM PDT by KansasGirl

CHARLOTTE, N.C. –  The young Texas mayor whose keynote speech wowed the Democratic National Convention crowd Wednesday night draws political inspiration from his mother – who is a member of a radical civil rights movement and who reportedly thinks the truth behind the Battle of the Alamo is that Texans swiped Mexico’s land.

Maria del Rosario Castro, the mother of San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro, said in 2010 that she grew up being told the battle was “glorious,” only to learn the so-called heroes were really “a bunch of drunks and crooks and slaveholding imperialists who conquered land that didn’t belong to them.”

“But as a little girl I got the message -- we were losers,” she told New York Times Magazine. “I can truly say that I hate that place and everything it stands for.”

You still are losers... Big losers in every possible way and the crap that comes out of your vocal hole proves it.

So what Maria is saying is that 'her people' couldn't stop a bunch of rabble-rousing drunks and ne're-do-wells?

Speaks loads for the defeated and their leadership.

Yeah, well, you won the battle but we handily won the war...and it's ours now, bitch.

He didn’t “wow” me! Not at all!

Not that he was a Democrat....I was opened minded...believe me.

I thought that Paul Ryan and Marco Rubio were outstanding! So very outstanding!

I thought that this young guy would compare....from what I had read. He didn’t even come close.

I am sure you would all agree...or did I miss something?

“slaveholding imperialists who conquered land that didn’t belong to them”

Isn’t that what conquer means? To get land that doesn’t belong to you? huh?

The Mexicans aren’t losers to anyone else besides the Texans?

You're correct. The democraps spent a lot of time building him up, both before and after his “speech”. I think they're looking for him to be the next barak obama. That's the feeling I get. They got their black in. Now they need a latino. Next a woman then a gay. I don't know where they'll go from there. Maybe try to get an alpaca elected?

Don’t be silly. It’s okay if Southern Europeans killed what they thought were Indians, and stole their land. It’s the evil Northern Europeans that deserve to be called on it. /s

Makes you wonder what the reaction would have been if the United States had claimed vast regions of the Moon as U. S. Territory, just like Spain did in what is now the Western United States.

Two things are incredibly crystal clear. Hardly any Mexican nationals know their own history, and an inordinately large segment of U. S. Citizens suffer the same knowledge deficit.

Hey Maria, why did the Mexicans only have 6000 at the Alamo?

They only had two cars.

A friend of mine says that this young mayor didn’t grow up very hard. He went to the best high school in town and came from the best part of town. He sounds like another made up hero very similar to Barack Obackslash.

Reading her statement just made my blood boil.

I have a few things I could say to that nasty Mexican b@... and since my ancestors fought for Texas’ independence what I would say would not be nice.

And to think her communist son is the mayor of San Antonio ticks me off.

Sheesh! If I were a ranking Dummycrat, I would pray never ever to have another DNC convention. Showcasing these idiots is not smart.

Mrs. MaMa Castor needs to learn to edit her thoughts and check her prejudices at the convention doors.
And this Congressperson who thinks the Dutch had slaves in Brooklyn in 1898, well what can one say?

The Texans & Tennesseans & Kentuckians who fought and died at the Alamo liked their whiskey. We need to find out what brand it was.

As for Mayor Castro’s mamacita, he must be facepalming bigtime.

Poor little Maria doesn’t know that a helluva lot of folks with Spanish surnames also fought on the side of the revolutionaries. Ever heard of Juan Seguin, Maria? Antonio De Zalava? The list goes on, you silly cow.

Thanks for posting

Just another La Raza plant. The DNC is full of them this year and we will not survive another 4 years

This battle will be fought again and these people need to be pushed back across the Rio Grande to their third world cesspool. No quarters given.

I’m a yankee and my blood is boiling, too.

This broad’s mouth and anus are interchangeable parts, just like her son’s.

The comments she made about the defenders of The Alamo have really made me livid. I hope her son loses re-election!
It figures their last name is Castro.

She was one of the founders of the racist commie organisation known as La Raza. Imagine if a bunch of white guys got together and formed a political movement named “The Race.”

Racism is racism, Maria, regardless of who practices it.

This silly cow also does not acknowledge the Hispanic heroes of the Texas Revoltion (of which there were many). There are streets, roads, and towns named after heroes of the Texas Revolution who had Spanish surnames. Maria is a stupid, race-baiting grievance pimpette.

Those drunks kicked some ass at San Jacinto. There’s a monumento celebrating the victory at San Jacinto. And there were a lot of Mexicans fighting with the Texians. I wonder if she’s ever heard of Juan Seguin?

I went to college in L.A. decades ago and lived in Santa Barbara for about 17 years. Even at that point in time, La Raza was very busy and active. I’m familiar with their anti-American agenda. They make me want to hurl.

Great handle you have here on Free Republic....my late uncle flew the B-17 in Europe during World War II.

According to a guest on a local conservative talk radio show tonight, this guy is planning to run for the Senate - in 2014 against Cornyn maybe? I wish we could replace Cornyn but certainly not with this guy.

We go to La Cantera on the outskirts of San Antonio a lot but quit going to Fiesta Texas several years ago when we found we were the only Caucasians there and among the few people in the wave pool who bothered to change their street clothes for bathing suits. San Antonio appears to be growing by leaps and bounds and I would expect the population there to surpass Houston one of these days and be Spanish dominant. I can remember when guys had to wear a jacket to dinner at the Riverwalk so this is all quite sad.
