From my link above

The pressure upon Bustamante has increased greatly ever since information became widely known that Republican Party candidate Arnold Schwarzenegger's father was a Nazi "brownshirt" in Austria and that Arnold has social connections with former president of Austria, Kurt Wilhelm, another Nazi implicated in war time atrocities. It appears that Republicans favoring Schwarzenegger want to even the score.

There is, of course, no comparison between the Nazi Party in Germany and a student group that struggles to increase educational opportunities for Chicanos and Mexican-Americans at colleges and universities that have traditionally shut the doors to Latinos. Cruz Bustamante owes his political success largely to the training he received as a Mechista and is unlikely to turn his back on his comrades that gave him his start at Fresno State University. Without MEChA at Fresno State University, Bustamante may have never set foot on campus. One of MEChA's primary missions is to recruit promising students from high schools in the community and to provide social, cultural and academic support to assure that recruited students graduate.

...MEChA's primary goal is to instill ethnic and cultural pride in its members. It accomplishes this by providing a true version of our history

...MEChA emphasizes the fact that our current disadvantaged, economic and political, situation is primarily due to us losing the Mexican-American War that ended in 1848 with the signing of the Treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo and the subsequent confiscation of our vast land by the English speaking invaders.

Great find!

"No, we do not think that Bustamante will repudiate MEChA. Without MEChA, Cruz Bustamante would not be where he is."

In fact, I think this should be posted by itself.

I will post it giving you credit for the find. :)
