Posted on 04/10/2006 6:53:11 PM PDT by Tailgunner Joe
Nearly 15 years after the collapse of the USSR, America could encounter what would have been unthinkable during the Cold War - a hostile, communist nation on our southern border. If the plans of the Marxist president of Venezuela, Hugo Chavez, are successful, America's neighbor to the south will become a virtual enemy camp.
For the past five years, Chavez has sent money and agents to Mexico to finance and infiltrate local political groups on the left, according to a Mexican news daily The goal is ideological -- pro-Chavez operatives want to dominate the increasingly powerful left wing in Mexico.
The Chavez strategy is in a critical phase. The Mexican presidential election is scheduled for July 2, 2006, and the favored candidate to win is Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, a leftist who is currently leading his closest opponent, Felipe Calderon, by over ten percentage points.
Obrador claims not to have any affiliations beyond Mexico's historical political traditions, but his supporters include militant socialists who openly support the communist rebels in Colombia, a conflict which has taken tens of thousands of lives. Many others have developed a loyalty to Chavez and his particular brand of Marxism.
Chavez has borrowed from Lenin, Mao, and Fidel Castro of Cuba, among others, to develop "bolivarian" socialism, what is termed "21st century socialism," which, so far, looks very similar to other Marxist schemes. The term "bolivarian" comes from the name of the great South American liberator, Simon Bolivar, who defeated Spanish colonial forces in the early 19th century.
Should Obrador win, as many expect, a large number of his supporters will be communist militants willing to use force to bring leftist policies into reality.
To ensure that Mexico's version of "bolivarian socialism" has the ability to assert its will effectively, Chavez has already supplied "logistics" and "military training" to leftist rebel groups, according to the report.
In Venezuela, "bolivarian" supporters have been able to threaten and intimidate opponents by using weapons and strong-arm tactics. Mexico may be headed for a similar fate.
The prospect of a communist Mexico is only the latest blow to the U.S. in Latin America, once America's "backyard." The pro-terror Islamic Republic of Iran is a close ally of Venezuela, and may seek to share nuclear secrets with its Marxist ally. There are also reports that Venezuela may seek rocket technology from the Stalinist gulag of North Korea.
Venezuela's Marxist partner in the Caribbean, Castro's Cuba, recently played host to a top-level military delegation from China, led by General Peng Xiaofeng, who was the chief political officer of the PLA's nuclear forces.
Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, and Bolivia all have leftist governments with varying degrees of hostility to the U.S.
The media is ignoring the red tide sweeping across Latin America, and the federal government seems unwilling to respond. The situation becomes even more alarming in view of our inept policies concerning the control of our borders.
Let your representatives know what you think about these issues, which the established media fails to cover.
Well... communist neighbors tend to build good fences... maybe there's a silver lining y'all ain't considered. :-)
Remember RED DAWN!!!
Just thinking about that. Panned by the critics, but I lived in the area and therefore enjoyed it.
Chavez is probably absolutely delighted he has all these illegals who are faithful to mexico living in this country are even demonstrating against us. They have taken over our streets again and again and again!
Chavez has a ready made army located right here with more flooding in like a cat5 every day and he doesn't have to do to much to get the socialists here and demonstrating to fight us for total control.
Not only has Chavez been sending his native henchmen North through Mexico, but also Chinese Nationalists, who are trained to resemble and sound like Mexicans along the way.
Joe, the knocking on the street is at the screaming level, and Mr. and Mrs. America are still asleep. But when the giant is aroused....there will be no question how the giant will react.
I'm about sick of 'em all anyway. If you want to be friends with us fine. Otherwise you can go to the devil for all I care. Bunch of worthless, corrupt tin-horns down there...how much of this crap do we have to put up with?
John Batchelor is discussing this right now on WABC.
Neat Red Dawn website here:
I think we are seeing the beginnings of it right now ... keep your powder dry ... literally
All these millions are being organized by the labor unions including the quasi commie ones.
Mexico is already pretty much communist, in the corrupt socialist police-state sense.
Sorry, amigo, but wrong.
We're already a communist nation, just most of the population doesn't realize it. There will be no Red Dawn, there will be no awakening of the sleeping giant. There are laws against everything and everyone is guilty of something. Recourse, unity, Thomas Jefferson's living revolution, they are all gone. There will be no more patriot's blood spilled, only the apprehension and termination of criminals. When we are finally and fully reduced to third world status the totalitarian control will be tightened and the pretense of freedom will be completely gone. The circle won't go rotate until we are gone from the face of the earth.
Semper Fi, I guess ...
I've listened to a few Mexican nationalists. They're much more like fascists than communists. They consider themselves to be a superior race, descended from Aztecs. They get a little angry at any talk about Spaniards or Indians (native Mexicans). Most people in other Central American and South American nations are generally prejudiced against Mexicans and even try to make a point that they speak Spanish differently.
How do Mexicans become property owners without getting their hands dipped in the blood of their Patrones?
I hope like heck the optimist is right and I'm wronger than wrong has ever been. Thanks.
This may not have anything to do with Russia directly, but the post here is important to national security and Mexico represents a large market for Russian weaponry.
I've been thinking for a little while that Venezuela is in cahoots with Mexico in trying to destabilize our economy, our sovereignty, and our unity as an American people, modeling on the Zimmerman Telegram of 1917.
"Chavez is probably absolutely delighted he has all these illegals who are faithful to mexico living in this country are even demonstrating against us. They have taken over our streets again and again and again!

And the Russians have plenty of weapons to arm them with.
I also forgot to say that it represents a place for Russia to base IRBM's and for importing suitcase nukes and Spetsnaz into our country. Same for the Chinese.
This doesn't sound all that bad to me. We'd finally get an oportunity to close the damn border and if the Mexican economy can't be productive with a "capitalist" economy it doesn't have a prayer with the commies in charge.
The communist movement in venezuela has two sources, and thus the Mexican one has them as well. The sources are the obvious one... China, and the not so known but still threatening one...Russia.
You are spot-on, and it bears repeating. Como se dice' "Zimmerman Telegram"?
At least the border would finally be closed (Communists do that you know).
If it happens the border will probly be the Mississippi River.
If Mexico goes down the Venezuela route America is going to have to intervene militarily. A lot of nations are questioning America's will, and testing us. Especially with the democrats being solidly pro-Chavez, pro-Castro, and pro-Islam.
Its better to deal with these marxists early on, before they get entrenched in power.
I like that one!!! it BEAR's repeating.
(The Grizzly Bear is a symbol of Russia, and the Panda is one of the symbols for China)
The Russians will then want Alaska back, and the Midwest for that matter. The Chinese would want the west coast, and the Cubans and Venezuelans would want the Southeast
Doh! Please please please don't tell my FReePUNster buddies that I punned without even knowing it! I'll be shamed off the FReePUN ping list!
We think similiar.
The USA border would be pushed back to the Mississippi, maybe the Ohio river.
"How does one foment a revolution in Mexico along the lines of the American revolution against the British Crown?"
I don't think they're capable of it. They've had hundreds of years with the boots of the elites on their necks.
I see this resentment everywhere, from me also. But, when my twin brother from Michigan (nckerr on here)can't stand Bush, then you know something is wrong with the guy. My brother is........(now) was the biggest Bush guy I knew. Now what?
"I've been thinking for a little while that Venezuela is in cahoots with Mexico in trying to destabilize our economy, our sovereignty, and our unity as an American people, modeling on the Zimmerman Telegram of 1917."
They've got lots of help from Washington too.
Mexico is and has been a communist country in all but name.
As a good example, in the early 70s we were at the Cape marlin fishing and returning home we were stuck in LaPaz for 2 days because the PRI was having their convention there and had comandered all commercial aircraft for their use.
Their delegates were prading all over town waving Mao's little Red Book.
Add to it nobody and nothing moves in Mexico that isn't reported to Mexico City and through government ownership of 51% or more of all basic industry and what can be imported and who can import it their population and economy is totally controled.
You're right, but if I think about that too much, I can't sleep at night. I'm sure in 1917, there was help from Washington too. That was a really fascinating period that shaped North America for the next 80 years. We are, once again, at such a juncture.
Don't forget Louisianna and the wussy French (but lately Bush is soft enough to give it back to them).
Then when we try to fight back, a newly reformed USSR and China decide to attack the US for interfering with the invasion.
Did you know that we give Russia and other hostile former soviet states massive amounts of foreign aid, and that we also give China some?
The central government in Washington DC will fight us first.
Look at whats happening right now, the Washington government is already siding with our enemies.
