Posted on 03/15/2011 9:39:08 AM PDT by La Lydia
The influential Mexican La Raza group thats 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 Colegioor 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 NCLRs 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.
Obamas 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.
We need to cut the obvious first - La Raza, NPR, and PBS top the list...
Will La Raza still need funding once Reconquista is complete?
Cut taxpayer funding 100% for every NGO.
There is a lot of housecleaning needed here!

TIME TO STOP THE MADNESS
The infestation is pretty heavy.. this nation’s pillars are being eaten away at by groups like this and parties like the Dems and sadly, more than a few in the GoPoop as well.
Sounds like a target of Diego O’Keefe.
Why do Leftie women always look like that? Is there some kind of secret rule that says you have to look like hell warmed over, bad hair, no makeup, klutz wardrobe?
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”.
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.
We need to cut the obvious first - La Raza, NPR, and PBS top the list...
ATF has killed more than these three combined. Start there.
Everyone of these Cockroach outfits need to be made Illegal NOW.
No borders > no sovereignty > no country.
Notice that her husband works for George Soros, Open Society Institute.
Time for Texas to return to an 1836 mentality and get the job done once for all. All loyal Tejanos in the spirit of the Navarros and de Zavalas more than welcome!
Maybe Soros sets the frump rules.
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.
Remember the Alamo !
The left loves racism.
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.
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.
Why are we funding La Raza?
It’s outrageous that taxpayer funds go to these racist groups.
You should have seen Senator Kennedy’s female staff. They all, regardless of age, belonged to the frumpy, hagged-out, I-don’t-own-an-iron-or-a-hairdryer category.
So much for President Obama: Everyone Must Sacrifice unless you are La Raza
Absolutely right. Eliminate the indefensible, i.e., the anti-American lines in the budget. Should be easy based on principle alone.
bloque de cortar
I don't see this as a non sequitur.
Sounds more like “Your Congress at Work” destroying your country.
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.
cut them off

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?
