Exclusive: The Truth About 'La Raza' ( And Sotomayor is a member )
humanevents.om ^ | 04/07/2006 | Charlie Norwood

Posted on 05/28/2009 8:59:51 AM PDT by kellynla

The nation's television screens many days recently have been filled with scenes of huge crowds carrying the colorful green and red flag of Mexico viewers could well have thought it was a national holiday in Mexico City.

It was instead, downtown Los Angeles, Calif., although the scene was recreated in numerous other cities around the country with substantial Mexican populations. Hordes of Mexican expatriates, many here illegally, were protesting the very U.S. immigration laws they were violating with impunity. They found it offensive and a violation of their rights that the U.S. dared to have immigration laws to begin with.

Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa mounted the podium, but any hopes that he would quiet the crowds and defend the law were soon dashed. Villaraigosa, himself, has spent a lifetime opposing U.S. immigration law.

For law-abiding Americans without knowledge of the dark side of our current illegal immigration crisis, all this is unfathomable. For those who know the truth about the "La Raza" movement, these demonstrations were a prophecy fulfilled.

It is past time for all Americans to know what is at the root of this outrageous behavior, and the extent to which the nation is at risk because of "La Raza" -- The Race.

There are many immigrant groups joined in the overall "La Raza" movement. The most prominent and mainstream organization is the National Council de La Raza -- the Council of "The Race".

To most of the mainstream media, most members of Congress, and even many of their own members, the National Council of La Raza is no more than a Hispanic Rotary Club.

But the National Council of La Raza succeeded in raking in over $15.2 million in federal grants last year alone, of which $7.9 million was in U.S. Department of Education grants for Charter Schools, and undisclosed amounts were for get-out-the-vote efforts supporting La Raza political positions.

The Council of La Raza succeeded in having itself added to congressional hearings by Republican House and Senate leaders. And an anonymous senator even gave the Council of La Raza an extra $4 million in earmarked taxpayer money, supposedly for "housing reform," while La Raza continues to lobby the Senate for virtual open borders and amnesty for illegal aliens.

Behind the respectable front of the National Council of La Raza lies the real agenda of the La Raza movement, the agenda that led to those thousands of illegal immigrants in the streets of American cities, waving Mexican flags, brazenly defying our laws, and demanding concessions.

Key among the secondary organizations is the radical racist group Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan, or Chicano Student Movement of Aztlan (MEChA), one of the most anti-American groups in the country, which has permeated U.S. campuses since the 1960s, and continues its push to carve a racist nation out of the American West.

One of America's greatest strengths has always been taking in immigrants from cultures around the world, and assimilating them into our country as Americans. By being citizens of the U.S. we are Americans first, and only, in our national loyalties.

This is totally opposed by MEChA for the hordes of illegal immigrants pouring across our borders, to whom they say:

"Chicano is our identity; it defines who we are as people. It rejects the notion that we...should assimilate into the Anglo-American melting pot...Aztlan was the legendary homeland of the Aztecas ... It became synonymous with the vast territories of the Southwest, brutally stolen from a Mexican people marginalized and betrayed by the hostile custodians of the Manifest Destiny." (Statement on University of Oregon MEChA Website, Jan. 3, 2006)

MEChA isn't at all shy about their goals, or their views of other races. Their founding principles are contained in these words in "El Plan Espiritual de Aztlan" (The Spiritual Plan for Aztlan):

"In the spirit of a new people that is conscious not only of its proud historical heritage but also of the brutal gringo invasion of our territories, we, the Chicano inhabitants and civilizers of the northern land of Aztlan from whence came our forefathers, reclaiming the land of their birth and consecrating the determination of our people of the sun, declare that the call of our blood is our power, our responsibility, and our inevitable destiny. ... Aztlan belongs to those who plant the seeds, water the fields, and gather the crops and not to the foreign Europeans. ... We are a bronze people with a bronze culture. Before the world, before all of North America, before all our brothers in the bronze continent, we are a nation, we are a union of free pueblos, we are Aztlan. For La Raza todo. Fuera de La Raza nada."

That closing two-sentence motto is chilling to everyone who values equal rights for all. It says: "For The Race everything. Outside The Race, nothing."

If these morally sickening MEChA quotes were coming from some fringe website, Americans could at least console themselves that it was just a small group of nuts behind it. Nearly every racial and ethnic group has some shady characters and positions in its past and some unbalanced individuals today claiming racial superiority and demanding separatism. But this is coming straight from the official MEChA sites at Georgetown University, the University of Texas, UCLA, University of Michigan, University of Colorado, University of Oregon, and many other colleges and universities around the country.

MEChA was in fact reported to be one of the main organizers of those street demonstrations we witnessed over the past weeks. That helps explain why those hordes of illegal immigrants weren't asking for amnesty -- they were demanding an end to U.S. law, period. Unlike past waves of immigrants who sought to become responsible members of American society, these protesters reject American society altogether, because they have been taught that America rightfully belongs to them.

MEChA and the La Raza movement teach that Colorado, California, Arizona, Texas, Utah, New Mexico, Oregon and parts of Washington State make up an area known as "Aztlan" -- a fictional ancestral homeland of the Aztecs before Europeans arrived in North America. As such, it belongs to the followers of MEChA. These are all areas America should surrender to "La Raza" once enough immigrants, legal or illegal, enter to claim a majority, as in Los Angeles. The current borders of the United States will simply be extinguished.

This plan is what is referred to as the "Reconquista" or reconquest, of the Western U.S.

But it won't end with territorial occupation and secession. The final plan for the La Raza movement includes the ethnic cleansing of Americans of European, African, and Asian descent out of "Aztlan."

As Miguel Perez of Cal State-Northridge's MEChA chapter has been quoted as saying: "The ultimate ideology is the liberation of Aztlan. Communism would be closest [to it]. Once Aztlan is established, ethnic cleansing would commence: Non-Chicanos would have to be expelled -- opposition groups would be quashed because you have to keep power."

MEChA Plants

Members of these radical, anti-American, racist organizations are frequently smoothly polished into public respectability by the National Council of La Raza.

Former MEChA members include Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who was officially endorsed by La Raza for mayor and was awarded La Raza's Graciela Olivarez Award. Now we know why he refuses to condemn a sea of foreign flags in his city. California Lt. Gov. Cruz Bustamante is also a former MEChA member. He delivered the keynote address at La Raza's 2002 Annual Convention.

The National Council of La Raza and its allies in public office make no repudiation of the radical MEChA and its positions. In fact, as recently as 2003, La Raza was actively funding MEChA, according to federal tax records.

Imagine Robert Byrd's refusing to disavow the views of the KKK, or if Strom Thurmond had failed to admit segregation was wrong. Imagine Heritage or Brookings Foundation making grants to the American Nazi Party.

Is the National Council of La Raza itself a racist organization? Regardless of the organization's suspect ties, the majority of its members are not. When one examines all the organization's activities, they are commendable non-profit projects, such as education and housing programs.

But even these defensible efforts raise the question of whether education and housing programs funded with federal tax dollars should be used in programs specifically targeted to benefit just one ethnic group.

La Raza defenders usually respond by calling anyone making these allegations "a racist" for having called attention to La Raza's racist links. All the groups and public officials with ties to the La Raza movement can take a big step towards disproving these allegations by simply following the examples of Senators Byrd and Thurmond and repenting of their past ways.

If they are unwilling to admit past misdeeds, they can at least state -- unequivocally -- that they officially oppose the racist and anti-American positions of MEChA, and any other groups that espouse similar views.

Through public appearances, written statements, and on their respective websites, La Raza groups and allies must:

1. Denounce the motto "For La Raza todo. Fuera de La Raza nada," as repugnant, racist, and totally incompatible with American society or citizenship.

2. Acknowledge the right of all Americans to live wherever they choose in the U.S. without segregation.

3. Commit to sponsorship of nationwide educational programs to combat racism and anti-Semitism in the Hispanic community.

4. Denounce and sever all ties with MEChA and any other organizations with which they have ever been associated which held to the racist doctrines held by MEChA.

5. Acknowledge the internationally recognized borders of the U.S., the right of the citizens of the U.S. to determine immigration policy through the democratic process, and the right of the U.S. to undertake any and all necessary steps to effectively enforce immigration law and defend its border against unauthorized entry.

6. Repudiate all claims that current American territory rightfully belongs to Mexico.

If the National Council of La Raza, other La Raza groups, and local and national political leaders with past ties and associations with the radical elements of the La Raza movement can publicly issue such a statement and live by every one of these principles, they should be welcomed into the American public policy arena, with past sins -- real or imaginary -- forgiven.

If they cannot publicly and fully support these principles, Congress needs to take appropriate steps and immediately bar any group refusing to comply from receiving any future federal funds. Both the House and Senate should strike these groups from testifying before any committees, and the White House should sever all ties. Both political parties should disengage from any further contact with these groups and individuals.

There are plenty of decent, patriotic Hispanic organizations and elected officials to provide Congress with necessary feedback on specific issues confronting Americans of Latino heritage. Any group or individual who can agree with the simple six points should be welcomed into that fold.

If not, the American people will know there's a wolf in their midst, and take the necessary precautions to defend our Republic against an enemy.

Kelly, this needs to be sent to Rush, Drudge, Fox. It must become public knowledge....

We would no sooner support a member of the KKK, but the left supports a member a LaRaza, the tan Klan.

Good article. Thanks for posting.

For what it’s worth, I and others posted that Sotomayor was a member of La Raza the other day.

I wouldn’t hold my breath waiting on this to have any impact.

NCLR has kept their ideas and policies sufficiently fuzzy to dodge all these claims and maintain deniability.

Rally at UCLA in Defense of La Raza
www.uniondelbarrio.org

“A revolutionary Mexican Organization”…” This is not just about Mexico, this is about a global struggle against imperialism and capitalism. But we know that where we now stand is stolen occupied Mexico. And the message that we bring if you want to bring a little bit more of a revolutionary context to this, why is it that these people? These frail racist white people want to keep us out of this country. It’s not simply because of the color of our skin, it’s not simply because they just want to exploit us, let me tell you why. Because on this planet right now, 6 billion people at the forefront of the revolutionary movement is La Raza.”…

…”We have a long history and example of our comondante Fidel Castro Ruiz, Caesar Hugo Chaves, Eduardo Morales, we got Brazil, Equator, you name it, we are nine, nine ??? governments in Latin America right now, and they know something that a one young Argentine cockroach said, it was called a domino theory, and he knew that every single country would go revolutionary. One after the other, after the other, after the other, after the other.”

“So what do they fear? They know that every single country, they know that we no longer will fall for these lies called borders, they know that a Salvadorian, that a Guatemalan and a Nicaraguan and a Mexicano, there is no damn difference, we are all one people. So with that in mind, we see our selves, all of us here, as the Northern front of a Latin American revolutionary movement. There are more than 40 million of our people north of the Rio Grande. That means to them there is 40 million revolutionaries north of the border inside the belly of the beast. So when you think about why do they want to kick us of all people out, that’s why”.

“They know that we now know the truth. They know that we are La Raza, we’re professionals, we are educators, we are revolutionary students, what does that mean? We are just a regular culture anymore, we are a culture of revolutionary spirit. And that’s the fear.”

“So with that being said, I want to leave you with this, as a revolutionary and with revolutionary context, let us be clear about one thing, our enemy is not the minutemen, quote me, our enemy is not the minutemen, because the minutemen are not the ones who have killed over four thousand, six hundred people at those borders, our enemy is the same enemy as Hugo Chaves, that Hugo Chaves has, our enemy is the same enemy that keeps Africa poor, our enemy is the same enemy that keeps Asia poor, Our enemy is capitalism, imperialism.”

“And I’ll finish with this, I’ll finish with this to respect the time. If we are serious about making CHANGE, if you are serious about making CHANGE, let me tell you, the struggle will go on for many more years after we leave UCLA. Reading a book or writing a book, or teaching a class, that is not, that is not part of the movement. What you do 24 hours a day as a professional revolutionary, that is what is going to lead our people and our people to liberation. Viva La Raza.”

LOL! Gotta watch those types...

But seriously, I do think there's some possibility of attacking Sotomayor on her La Raza connections. It's a radical group and appears at events with the Black Panthers and a host of other racial loonies. It is by no means a mainstream group for people of Latin American descent.

Thanks but we had a media & congressional email list years ago that just listed the email addresses so that all you had to do is “cut & paste” to email whatever you wanted sent.

I'll just wait until the rest of the adults get home from work today since the majority of the posts have been from kids who are apparently out of school today.

La Raza Lies About Its Name. From La Raza's website:
The Truth About NCLR: NCLR Answers Critics

We recognize that some people might be confused about our organization’s name, our mission, and our work. Much of this is understandable.... We have a Spanish term in our name, “La Raza” (meaning “the people” or “community”), which is often mistranslated.

nclr.org

Mistranslated? Here's Random House's translation:

If "some people might be confused" about La Raza's name & mission, they are only the people listening to the propaganda lies of La Raza and its MSM cohorts.

MSM conveniently neglects to mention her membership in La Raza.

I took one look at her on tv and KNEW she is deeply flawed, and the LA RAZA gang-member connection is it. Rush, Sean, and the rest better climb on this ASAP.

BTW, my ex was Puerto Rican, so do not call me prejudiced.

Good grief, these people are screwed up.

And isn’t it interesting how our enemies are always socialists. It’s either the National Socialists, or the Communists (Soviet, Korean, or Vietnamese), or the socialist Baath Party, or the socialist Sandanistas, or socialist Chavez or Castro, or the narco-Marxists. And here we have La Raza, which is spouting the usual “anti-imperialist” socialist garbage (interesting how easily socialist ideas can be tailored to a racist movement).

It’s socialism every time.

Her choosing to quote Norman Thomas in her yearbook didn’t sit well with me either, but if a president can rub elbows with a terrorist, a SC justice can certainly associate with La Raza. And don’t forget, minorities are held to a lower standard by liberals.

Since when is Chicano, Mexican, et.al. considered a race? They are ethnic whites. Unless of course every ethnicity is considered its own race. Koreans are Asian, just as are the vietnemese, just as are the Iraqi’s and Saudi’s.

So we are supposed to be good law abiding citizens while our country the one WE built gets raped and pillaged by these people?

THE LA RAZA GOODY BAG
You can substitute Sotomayor for Gonzales.
Excerpt:
Now, you *stupid* rednecks, that is YOUR tax money. It's YOUR kids who fall behind while so many others are pretending to catch up. It's YOU who might well lose your job if you don't speak Spanish in America. You see the ads in the classifieds. If you smoke, don't show up. If you're fat, don't show up unless you're Hispanic. If you don't speak Spanish....well, kill yourself now because you are being bankrupted anyway.
(With tongue firmly planted in cheek lest I offend the *religion of peace,* you don't have to kill yourself. They will gladly do it for you AFTER they cross the Rio Grande using Vincente's guidebook.)
Gonzales has not stepped away from his loyalty to La Raza even as Attorney General. He has never condemned the bare racism exposed in their slogan, which to my mind, puts him on the same level as the Islamic Cleric, or a Louis Farakhan, who speaks softly of peace in public but spends the time with his people fomenting ways to force a takeover, piece by piece in exacly the same way. The rest of the time is spent making excuses or ridiculous accusations of racism to force their radical views on an America which simply wanted to live and let live. They speak eloquently of THEIR civil rights, but for us, nothing.
End excerpt

MORE LA RAZA GOODY BAG

Excerpt:
Update: July 11, 2005: Since writing the last article, it has come to my attention that there are all too many people who have separated LaRaza from M.E.Ch.A in the mistaken belief that the newer, kinder, gentler LaRaza is not nearly as radical and does not share the same goals as MEChA. This notion is perpetuated by the slick propaganda which LaRaza used when it changed its name, then moved off campuses and into political offices and businesses seeking patrons, much like the race pimps we have all come to know and love so well.
It began as La Raza Unida Party, built upon the same ideology as those who are laying the same claims to "stolen" lands and receiving guidance from a master of the artform. The outgrowth of this twisted ideology, birthed by those who desire to steal from others what they could never have built for themselves, was Aztland, a mythical land that never existed in history, just as Palestine never existed in history.
End exerpt.

Listen this country no longer has checks and balances. Obama has complete power now. Now he is going to have the supreme court, with this nomination and with maybe two or more of his appointments,I don’t know if we as a country will ever recovery. This woman could be a terrorists and would still be confirmed. The gop has no backbone and not enough votes to make the difference. We need a third party!!! But it may be too late. Conservatives will only win back their country with the help of the holy spirit. A revival. Boycott anything hollywood,fast,pray and take our Christian faith at a new level. We have church pastors and priests flaunting their anti-Christian gospels,like Jenkins at Note Dame,because too many think the Christians in this country will do NOTHING. We complain about hollywood because their liberals and put out smut and then too many support them be going to their movies and watch their tv shows. With their money and cultural influence they have done a great deal to hurt the youth in this country. But I think too many Christians are addicted to hollywood even if they are disgusted with them. Maybe there is something to that 2012 prophecy,look who is President.

They’re held to no standards at all. But then, liberals don’t have much in the way of standards.

Judge Sotomayor, should a person who belongs to and supports an activist group with the motto, “For Caucasians everything, for non-caucasians nothing!” be appointed the US Supreme Court?

Most people do not realize that LaRaza began by sending a delegation to Yassir Arafat and the PLO for instruction. They patterned their organization after the PLO and maintained close ties with Arafat up until his death. They fully intended to begin an intifada exactly like what was done to Israel, but the US was too big, too populated for their numbers to overcome. They never intended to accept Puerto Ricans or other Spanish speaking peoples. They only did so later to increase their numbers. Puerto Ricans were considered trash by the founders of LaRaza.
From 1969, they could never do what Arafat did with only Mexican membership. Arafat recruited his terrorists from ALL the Arab nations surrounding Israel.
Enter MEChA. Get militant. Get rowdy. Partner up with established terrorists. Make threats and demands on them damn gringos until you get something. Anything. Because THEN you become "legitimate." Just like a "palestinian."
From 1969 until now, the LaRaza Unida Party, aka, MEChA, aka LaRaza Commission Center, invited ALL the "similar" people they once desparaged to join, continued to evolve into National Council of LaRaza and became a "unity" struggle for ALL Spanish speaking peoples. They have copied the palestinian model right down to their fabricated "history" which is without any foundation or basis in reality.
It is poison they have rammed down the throats of children for thirty-six years and realize that those children are now in THEIR thirties themselves and this has become their reality as surely as the Arabs' vision of "palestine."
Tier 1 is the poorest and most uneducated, increasingly illegal, Latinos up to MEChA student organizations recruiting on campus, pronouncing solidarity with the radical Islamist groups for purposes of anti-white, anti-America, and anti-Israel protest. They reach deep into the self-imposed segregation of their "communities" to the youngest of children using exactly the same kinds of hate rhetoric you will see in any Jihadi organization which teaches from the top down while supposedly promoting (providing) education, providing healthcare to those who could receive it elsewhere but are "taught" not to, KEEPING them poor and uneducated to control the population. THIS LINK is La Raza in 2004 from one of their "news bulletins."
If you don't want to click the link on their page to see LaRaza and Arafat in "the old days," I'll save you the trouble.
La Raza and Arafat in the old days

LA RAZA MISSION STATEMENT

The history of La Raza Commission Center is one that was conceived and fostered by student political activism. La Raza Commission Center was originally founded by Movimiento Estudiantil Chican@ de Aztlan (M.E.Ch.A.) in 1981. M.E.Ch.A. was born out of the barrios in 1969, at the height of U.S. social unrest as communities of color demanded social and economic justice. M.E.Ch.A. formulated its direction from the barrios, committed to grass roots organizing and taking actions on behalf of its communities. M.E.Ch.A. Commission changed its name to La Raza Commission Center in 1997 to ensure inclusion amongst all Latin@s and breakdown nationality division as we see social and economic issues and concerns in Latin@ communities related and interconnected.
Although the name of the Commission has changed to La Raza to make all Latin@s feel included and to develop a comprehensive understanding of Latin America, its political philosophies remain parallel to M.E.Ch.A. Political alignment with M.E.Ch.A. philosophies maintain a progressive effort to improve the conditions of our communities.

The long and short of it,is that NCLR has gained mainstream acceptance exactly like the nonexistent "palestinians" and have now become an exceedingly strong political voice with ties to established politicians, and are catered to even though they maintain their support of MEChA in the barrios and on college campuses across the US JUST like Muslim America, an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood, aka Islamic Jihad.

PS, Note Obama's teleprompter. Even there....

“That alone should be a red flag as to the nature of the organization.”

RED flag, indeed! That group is racist and un-American. And this talk about a legendary Aztec homeland is IMO a bunch of garbage. Where’s the archaeological evidence? The Comanches, the Navajos, and others probably kept ‘em way south of the Rio Grande!
