La Raza likely to come to KC in 2015
The Kansas City Star ^ | Jan 20, 2012 | La Raza likely to come to KC in 2015

Posted on 01/20/2012 11:44:02 PM PST by MissouriConservative

A major Latino organization that canceled its planned 2009 convention in Kansas City because of a controversial appointment by former Mayor Mark Funkhouser will likely bring its 10,000-delegate event here in 2015.

**SNIP**

Convention officials were excited about La Raza’s reconsideration of Kansas City.

“After a false start in 2009, I think it’s great to see we’ve attracted the attention of La Raza,” said Rick Hughes, president of the Convention and Visitors Association. “It’s great their giving us a second chance.”

I am absolutely disgusted that my city would welcome these racist pukes.

Rebellion is brewing!!

We should rebuild the grassroots conservative movement. From the Reagan Revolution of 1980 through the Contract with America in 1994, it was this movement from outside Washington that carried us to the first center-right majority governing coalition in more than 60 years.

The problem has not been with conservatism or with our voters.

The problem has been with Republican leaders who forgot who elected them and what values their supporters expected to see implemented in Washington.

This is how these pressure groups operate. LaRaza and the NAACP threaten the Mayor over his appointment of a *gasp* MinuteMan member.

This convention will probably end up being a net lose for the city.

So most everyone has a price...ehhh? 10k people means a lot of business

But what if they changed their name to Nazis instead of La Raza? Would the city at least feel a little squeamish about making money off them?

Rebellion is brewing!!

We should deport the illegal alien scum that has invaded our country, rebuild the grassroots conservative movement. From the Reagan Revolution of 1980 through the Contract with America in 1994, it was this movement from outside Washington that carried us to the first center-right majority governing coalition in more than 60 years.

The problem has not been with conservatism or with our voters.

The problem has been with Republican leaders who forgot who elected them and what values their supporters expected to see implemented in Washington. The democrats are the enemy within the gates and must be ERADICATED

I do not want them here. They want to take over America, by force if necessary. That makes them enemies of America.

For them to come here is aggression. Are they seeking a confrontation? Will they be allowed/encouraged to bring their guns?

La Raza-—”THe Race”

An organisation dedicated to taking back to Mexico those states that Mexico once ruled.

I suppose so they can rule them like they rule Mexico, In other words let the drug Cartels run them.

And this city isproud to welcome them?

WTF?

Isn't La Raza the group that was blowing up electrical substations around Denver in the 70’s?

25,000 will register (under multiple identities)-—but only 500 will attend.

The best part was that this was a little old lady who loved roses, and it was a volunteer position.

To this day I'm SO GLAD I got the hell out of Kansas City, MO proper, and I make sure that I NEVER pay sales tax to KCMO... I refuse to buy anything in KC... I'll go out to Lee's Summit, Independence, or Overland Park, KS

I’ve noticed the Kansas City Red Star doesn’t allow comments for articles as they did in the past. Of course, if it’s a slam against a conservative I bet they do.

They can't be that racist - Rick Perry likes their leadership, praised them, and praised their involvement in the community.

I'm not a fan of them or anything, but Rick Perry and a lot of his supporters seemed okay with it.
