CHARLOTTE, N.C. The young Texas mayor whose keynote speech wowed the Democratic National Convention crowd Wednesday night draws political inspiration from his mother who is a member of a radical civil rights movement and who reportedly thinks the truth behind the Battle of the Alamo is that Texans swiped Mexicos land.
Maria del Rosario Castro, the mother of San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro, said in 2010 that she grew up being told the battle was glorious, only to learn the so-called heroes were really a bunch of drunks and crooks and slaveholding imperialists who conquered land that didnt belong to them.
But as a little girl I got the message — we were losers, she told New York Times Magazine. I can truly say that I hate that place and everything it stands for.
The Alamo, then a sprawling mission for missionaries and American Indian converts, was attacked in February 1836 by Mexican General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna. Though historical accounts vary, Texans, including famous frontiersman Davy Crockett, fought back for 13 days only to surrender, on March 6.
Maria del Rosario Castro also was a member of the La Raza Unida, a radical movement that defended the civil rights of Mexican-Americans in Texas.
La Raza-———————————The Race.
Pretty much says it all.
The twisted mentality of many on the left is mindboggling and simply staggering! This country is so in for a frakin; worse than the frakin’ it is currently experiencing under this current adminstration. =.=
Haters gonna hate.
And this little sprout of the fat, repulsive radical La Raza mother is now the mayor of one of the biggest sucklings on the government teat, San Antonio. If that city were just a little closer to the border, we could just give it back to Mexico. Texas would be much better off without it.
It would be much cheaper for the U.S. taxpayer than paying for every child in the entire San Antonio ISD to be on “free” lunches, all the Section 8 housing where squatters from Mexico can live for free and eat for free on WIC and food stamps, and they also cash in on free medical care. San Antonio is as big a welfare sink hole as you will find in the USA.
That is factually incorrect. Mission San Antonio de Valero, aka the Alamo, ceased functioning as a mission and a house of worship in 1794.
Did the Castro boys have a father?
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Another dem "star" with radicals in his background. The RUP is a fine group, who like so many DNC related groups hate Jews even more than they hate whites. Though it generally can't be posted from here, I doubt the admins will mind if I link their rag, La Voz de Aztlan for those who want a taste of the ideology. From their early days, the "community organizers" learning from the source.
Yes - Jessie Guzman
I can truly say that I hate that place and everything it stands for.
Looks like a campaign poster against Castro to me. Will the San Antonio Repubs use it? Probably not....
According to Wikipedia, His mother was a Chicano political activist who helped establish the Chicano political party La Raza Unida which means "The United Race". She ran unsuccessfully for San Antonio City Council in 1971.
Some additional research reveals, according to Wikipedia, ... His father, Jessie Guzman, was a community activist in the 1970s and a retired math teacher. Never married, Rosie and Jessie separated when Castro was eight years old.
By "we" she means Mexicans.
I highly doubt that she was told that Mexicans lost the Battle of the Alamo.

Duh, the Alamo is in San Antonio.
Sounds like she and Stanley Ann Dunham were separated at birth.
So, General Santa Anna was a good man who loved the people he ruled?
He was a tinpot dictator who cared only for himself.
What Hispanic Ku Klux Klan racism! If she felt she was on the “losing side” of the Alamo, she can take her Gringo-hating self back to that Third World Latrine to the south
Anti-White, Anti-Semite....the DNC
