I attempted to transcribe the audio:

KABC, John and Ken Show, May 1, 2006
Comments by Fox 11 Reporter Tony Valdez.
[Listen to audio here]

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.

Thanks for transcribing. Valdez changed it from the U.S. government to "yourselves." He was specifically attacking John and Ken because there are Anglos. He slipped, but he revealed how he feels.

To: calcowgirl; All
If I was there.

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.

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.

Back in those days you actually had to win your wars if you wanted to keep all your land.

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

That's how they made heros 150 years ago. Not my rules.

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]

Ridding the world of an evil tyrant like saddam is a favor to all nations. Iran has called for our and Israel's destruction more times than you have brain cells.

VALDEZ: ....it's very convenient for you to do that, I say with respect, but nevertheless -

Thank you.

VALDEZ: But nevertheless, you took this country, you killed people to take this country for yourselves.

I never killed a sole. You're nuts.
