Old Mexico Lives On
Feb 1st 2014
On February 2nd 1848, following a short and one-sided war, Mexico agreed to cede more than half its territory to the United States. An area covering most of present-day Arizona, California, Nevada, New Mexico and Utah, plus parts of several other states, was handed over to gringolandia. The rebellious state of Tejas, which had declared its independence from Mexico in 1836, was recognised as American soil too. But a century and a half later, communities have proved more durable than borders.

I’m sure if the southwest decided to secede, or join Mexico, they would get the same treatment the Confederacy did. /sarc
Is it the cost of living that keeps New England lily white?
Livin’in LA my whole life. Yep.
The Mexican-American war of 1846-8 was not one sided. America wasn’t a world power and most of the European Nations believed Mexico would win. Mexico lost because of poor leadership on the part of General Santa Anna. If he would have tossed in his reserves at the pivital Battle of Buena Vista—He might have beatten the invading Yankees. The war was unpopular—with New England threatening to leave the Union over it. Had Mexico held on—the US may will have lost the will to fight.
The map merely depicts the “Reconquista.”
In this book,the author claims that the coming Civil War will have a racial component and the areas shown on the map as 'Old Mexico' would fall to the Hispanics and become a new Spanish speaking country.
Draw a line straight across from the top of Tennessee to Texas (about) and everything south of that would become a new Black nation.
Whites would be forced into the remaining northern states and form a new country with Canada.
This article is about mexicans. Not Nicaraguans, Dominicans, Ecuadorians, Peruvians, Chileans, etc.
Shouldn't that be going back to the Russkies?
the black will never ever, not in a million years take over the old south as a blacks only nation.
now the old Mexico thing.... could happen.
More like, the courage and determination and self-confidence of Anglos has not proved durable enough to hold the land and the culture. ("Anglos" broadly construed.) We need less moral relativism and more Manifest Destiny.
I would be a little skeptical of this map. I think, as of the last census results, that it overstates the number of Mexicans in our county.
I buy nothing from Mexico. I won’t go there anymore. I am anti-Mexican until their dirt-bag government calls home their millions of campesinos and patriots to go back and build their own country into a paradigm of a socialist nirvana.
Go back and screw up your own shit hole and don’t bring your socialist cancer here.
Wrong. Texas became a state in the USA in December 1845, before the Mexican-American War. The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo ended the war, with the USA paying Mexico $15,000,000, quite a generous chunk of change considering that the US won the war handily, thanks to military men such as Robert E. Lee and Zachary Scott.
Mexicans whine about the fact that they lost their territory, but when you lose a war and sign a treaty, and get paid millions besides, you have nothing to whine about. Of course, through the invasion of our country by their citizens they’ll reclaim much of this territory, while Uncle Sugar feeds them, educates them, and medicates them at no cost. Can any country this stupid last?
More like, when a people become too civilized to do what's necessary to survive in an uncivilized world, they won't survive, nor do they deserve to survive.
You mean Zachary Taylor. Zachary Scott was an actor.
Wow, this map is certainly outdated...at least as far as the Sanctuary Peoples Democratic State of Maryland goes.
It was Generals Zachary Taylor and Winfield Scott who led our Army to Victory in the Mexican War. Lieutenant Robert E. Lee was only a Combat Engineer in that War.
