Call 310.584.2300 Direct dial into their newsroom...
They're minutes away from playing it, and I can't wait to hear it again. It was great how they exposed that lowly knave!
At 5:00PM PT, they're just going to focus on Tony Valdez' Aztlan talking points.
how the hell do I find it? Do you have a direct link?
What'd Valdez say?
Well, let's remember that mean spirited remarks never fed even one hungry child.(/Lib spin)
Wow!...But I thought news reporters were objective? (SARC)
Los Angeles exists because of American railroads and oil companies, as well as entrepeneurs like Phineas Banning who built the harbor.It has comparatively little to do with a contrived, romanticized hispanic history that started with the establishment of a pueblo in 1781
J&K: Lets check in with Reporter Tony Valdez who has a question:
VALDEZ: Well, I don't have a question so much as a reminder to these gentlemen. You know, if you remember, we had a concept in this country which was, manifest destiny. It was some sort of notion that the United States had the right to occupy land from the Atlantic to the Pacific.
Now there is a group in Los Angeles that's called Culture Clash. And they do some very interesting things, satirically and with comedy. And one of the things they say is, "We didn't cross the border, the border crossed us." So, what I would suggest to these gentlemen, and anyone else who is watching do, is to look at your own history, 1846, and see how the United States of America invaded the country of Mexico, how the United States countries wanted to go into Texas and bring slavery to Texas and the Mexicans who would not tolerate slavery, said no, get out.
J&K: And so people living today have to pay for the sins of 160 years ago? ...radical
VALDEZ: They should also think about California where the same sort of thing has happened. Here in California there is a monument to the Mormon Battalion, the great heroes who killed a lot of Mexicans, enough Mexicans
J&K: There's a statute of limitation on this stuff.
VALDEZ: ... so that this part of the world could be taken by force, by force by the United States. Today, the same government that runs this country tries to strike down countries like Iran and Iraq, and so on and so forth, who invade other countries, and yet, this very same country, the United States... [unintelligible]
J&K: There's got to be a statute of limitation on old history. It can't effect our day to day lives.
VALDEZ: ....it's very convenient for you to do that, I say with respect, but nevertheless -
J&K: Well, what do you want us to do?
VALDEZ: But nevertheless, you took this country, you killed people to take this country for yourselves.
J&K: That's crazy. That's nuts. A report from Aztlan, there.
Yep, Tony started out with "We had a concept in this country." At that point, he was an American. They he told John and Ken to "look at your own history." He ended with how the white guys, John and Ken, killed people to "in order take this country for yourselves."
