Publicly Funded La Raza Group Expands
Judicial Watch ^ | March 15, 2011

Posted on 03/15/2011 9:39:08 AM PDT by La Lydia

The influential Mexican La Raza group that’s received millions of federal tax dollars to promote its leftist, open-borders agenda has added several new branches to its growing network of community organizations dedicated to serving Latinos. Among them is yet another public “charter” school that pushes a radical Chicano movement, known as “reconquista,” with a custom-designed curriculum financed by U.S. taxpayers. The plan is to conquer the American southwest, return it to Mexico and perform ethnic cleansing of Americans, Europeans, Africans and Asians.

The politically-connected, Washington D.C. group National Council of La Raza (NCLR) has helped further this agenda by expanding its operations nationwide with the generous help of Uncle Sam. This month the NCLR, which describes itself as the largest Latino civil rights and advocacy organization in the United States, announced the addition of seven affiliates to its network of 300 “community groups.” The new chapters are located in different parts of the country, including Minnesota, Maryland, Illinois, Michigan and Colorado.

Among them is a publicly-funded high school (“El Colegio”or The School) in Minneapolis with an innovative curriculum that focuses on ethnicity. “El Colegio” describes itself as a “Latino-focused” school that integrates experimental-based teaching strategies using Chicano, Mexican and Latino cultures and traditions. This month it became an official affiliate of the NCLR, which helps operate similar schools in other parts of the country.

udicial Watch exposed this La Raza movement in American public education a few years ago in a special report focusing on a Southern California elementary school that specializes in bashing the U.S. and promoting the Chicano movement. That NCLR-backed school (Academias Semillas Del Pueblo) is a training ground for the Mexican reconquista agenda and is run by a Calexico-educated activist (Marcos Aguilar) who opposes racial integration and says Mexicans in the U.S. don't want to attend white schools or drink from white water fountains.

It may seem baffling that American tax dollars are wasted on such causes, but the explanation is rather simple. The NCLR is powerful and politically connected with leaders regularly attending congressional hearings and White House meetings. The group, which endorsed and campaigned for Obama in 2008, is also tight with the administration.

In fact, fact the president violated his own lobbyist ban to hire one of the NCLR’s top officials (Cecilia Munoz) as director of intergovernmental affairs. Munoz supervised all legislative and advocacy activities on the state and local levels and was heavily involved in the congressional immigration battles before Obama issued an “ethics waiver” to make her part of his administration.

Obama’s first Supreme Court appointee, Sonia Sotomayor, was also a member of the NCLR and the group was quick to thank the president for the “historic appointment,” which it called a “monumental day for Latinos.” No wonder, in its latest press release announcing new affiliates the NCLR points out that its “impact continues to grow on a daily basis.”

Will La Raza still need funding once Reconquista is complete?

while the new country of mexico claimed the land now north of the border,

in actuality, mexicans living there were killed by the apaches and commanches.

it was only when the u.s. calvary arrived that the southwest claimed by mexico was safe for “mexicans”.

si.

I’ve long since stopped seeing it as my country; a country without borders belongs to no one; it’s open for the taking. And that’s the irony of it. The Latino’s can take it back, but they can’t keep it. They’re far outnumbered by the Chinese who only need come over and take it from them.

Of course the most ridiculous part of all of this Raza stuff is that the last thing Mexicans in the United States want is to end up living in Mexico again. If they the re-conquer California, all the Mexicans will move to Nevada to avoid living under a Mexican government again.

I think we should fund La Raza, the Muslim Brotherhood, the New Black Panthers, and the Tong crews.

Let the wetbacks, towel-heads, chopsticks and Welfare ingrates blast each other to smithereens fighting with each other for the right to take over America and subjugate Whitey.

Then, once all four of the loony, violent, latent homo factions have shredded each other to a bloody pulp, we just stroll in and sweep up the left-over debris and toss 'em into the ocean for the long swim back home.

Strategic planning is among my strong suits.

I think (in general) women on the left/far left do share a “look”. No make up is part of it. Greasy hair, sometimes. The wardrobe is kind of odd—old lady hippy is a good description. The shoes are always a give away...uber functional/eco friendly walking shoes.

The young women that think they are just “liberal” usually like to look nice. The farther on the left scale, the more dusty these women look.

I think it's a “screw you” to the traditional female role.

A day at Whole Foods is fun to people watch. The women fit into mostly 2 groups: Young, affluent “liberal” women who look very stylish and attractive, displaying their “green” baby and $1,200 stroller and their more leftist sisters who look hagged out, pissed off and ready to beat a man's head in with a broccoli spear if he dare hold the door for her.

Absolutely right. Eliminate the indefensible, i.e., the anti-American lines in the budget. Should be easy based on principle alone.

I don't see this as a non sequitur.

Twelve Americans are murdered every day by illegal aliens, according to statistics released by Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa. If those numbers are correct, it translates to 4,380 Americans murdered annually by illegal aliens. That’s 21,900 since Sept. 11, 2001.

While King reports 12 Americans are murdered daily by illegal aliens, he says 13 are killed by drunk illegal alien drivers – for another annual death toll of 4,745. That’s 23,725 since Sept. 11, 2001.

While no one – in or out of government – tracks all U.S. accidents caused by illegal aliens, the statistical and anecdotal evidence suggests many of last year’s 42,636 road deaths involved illegal aliens.

“The infestation is pretty heavy.”

Judging from the reaction in Wisconsin, I don’t think our nation has the guts to right the ship. Every cut will be met with squealing and foundless, foolish, and irrelevant charges to the point that change will be near impossible.

OPM is the opium of the liberal masses..

The Left is all for redistributing the wealth as long it isn’t a negative for their pocketbook..

What ever happened to we all share the pain and every individual should help pay for the burden of bloated gubamint servicing the people like penned goats.

Socialism is One way Gubamint.. down the tubes.

The U.S. is under attack from The Muslim Brotherhood on one front and La Raza on another. Thing is, it’s a one-sided fight. Where are our troops?

Oh. Afghanistan.
