URGENT ALERT: From The Revolutionary Council andProvisional Government of Aztlan

April 26, 2006

Estimada Raza de Aztlan and Beyond,

Our Director of Special Intelligence Services has brought to our attention disturbing information that threatens thesafety of our families. This information requires that we prepare a defense strategy to protect our communities.

Due to the recent large demonstrations of our people in major cities in occupied Anahuac, extremist European invaders are preparing violent actions against us. They are expected to use physical violence in the upcoming marches and rallies planned for May 1, 2006 and we must take steps to protect our families.

The Director of Special Intelligence Services has reliable information that anti-Mexican forces in Aztlan and in certain other area of Anahuac, are preparing to utilize explosives and snipers to kill our people. We urge our community to arm themselves to protect our families. We are also urging our soldiers presently serving In Iraq, Afghanistan and other foreign lands to do everything possible to return home and fight for your own. The situation here is critical.

In addition, all political prisoners shall be in constant alert and ready for action. Also, youth groups in our barrios shall call truces and direct their energies against the racist enemy that has vowed to annihilate our families.

Our Prime Minister is instructing every able bodied male to arm himself to protect the women and children in his home. We can not depend on local White law enforcement authorities because in many cases they will join the criminal elements and participate in the slaughter of our people. Make sure you have weapons and plenty of ammunition in your homes at the ready.

Criminal racist elements have already made death threats against certain "occupation administrators" and they will not stop at killing our civilians. We hope that the massacres of Mexicans that the White criminals have vowed to undertake are just the rantings of cowardly insane minds but we must take these threats seriously.

Cuauhtli Minister of Information Nation of Aztlan La Voz de Aztlan (emphasis added, HT: Michelle Malkin)

No Reconquista?

Here are some quotes from some mainstream Hispanics that the mass media fails to mention. From Doug Edelman over at the Intellectual Conservative,

Go back to Boston! Go back to Plymouth Rock, Pilgrims! Get out! We are the future. You are old and tired. Go on. We have beaten you. Leave like beaten rats. You old white people. It is your duty to die… Through love of having children, we are going to take over.

– Augustin Cebada, Brown Berets

They're afraid we're going to take over the governmental institutions and other institutions. They're right. We will take them over . . . We are here to stay.

– Richard Alatorre, Los Angeles City Council

The American Southwest seems to be slowly returning to the jurisdiction of Mexico without firing a single shot.

– Excelsior, the national newspaper of Mexico

We have an aging white America. They are not making babies. They are dying. The explosionis in our population. I love it. They are sh**ing in their pants with fear. I love it.

– Professor Jose Angel Gutierrez, University of Texas

Remember 187 — proposition to deny taxpayer funds for services to non-citizens — was the last gasp of white America in California.

– Art Torres, Chairman of the California Democratic Party

We are politicizing every single one of these new citizens that are becoming citizens of this country. I gotta tell you that a lot of people are saying I'm going to go out there and vote because I want to pay them back.

– Gloria Molina, Los Angeles County Supervisor

California is going to be a Hispanic state. Anyone who doesn't like it should leave.

– Mario Obledo, California Coalition of Hispanic Organizations (and California State Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare under former CA Governor Jerry Brown. Also awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Bill Clinton)

We are practicing 'La Reconquista' in California.

– Jose Pescador Osuna, Mexican Consul General

We need to avoid a white backlash by using codes understood by Latinos…

– Professor Fernando Guerra, Loyola Marymount University

These are not radicals, this is mainstream. Anybody have the guts to take them on?

To: The Socialists of All Parties

Thus begins The Road to Serfdom by Friedrich A. Hayek. Hayek wrote the warning for a British audience during the early 1940's while Europe was in the throws of war. It is a warning because Hayek knew that there is little difference between fascism and socialism, and the inevitable outcome of either form of governance is tyranny, despite the intentions of those who would call themselves socialists.

Hayek believed that socialists were people of good will, but they had no idea that the necessary means to their ends would be morally repugnant. As Britain started down the road to socialism, Hayek, being a man of compassion, wrote the Road to Serfdom as his way of building a blockade. He warned Britain that "socialism means slavery". Britain chose slavery.

I first read The Road to Serfdom as an impressional young college student. Thank God, huh? With the university jammed full of leftists, one of my first professors was an Austrian economist (this is a field of study, not the professor's nationality). Austrian economics are characterized by free markets and free men. The effect of Hayek's thesis was quite profound. I'd seen the injustice of the welfare state already but Hayek explained why socialism is unjust, why injustice is inevitable under socialism, and why it's natural.

Incidentally, my desire to be left alone was furthered by an opportunity to meet Ron Paul, who in 1988 was running as the Libertarian candidate for the POTUS. I knew then and there that I was a libertarian.

Before I get into a review of The Road to Serfdom, I must take care of some laundry. First of all, the printing I have is the one with the 1976 Preface by Hayek. The link I provided is the 60th Anniversary edition.

Secondly, Hayek was very impressed by the abbreviated version(pdf) put out by Readers Digest; of it he says "that it is done without distortion and better than I could have done...".

Third, Hayek says that the best critique of his book comes from Barbara Wootton's study, Freedom Under Planning . Though Hayek cautions that more than one reviewer expressed that the study substantially confirms Hayek's thesis.

Fourth, from here on out, the word liberal means 19th century liberal, or 20th century libertarian. Socialists in the United States (there is no such thing as a classical liberal in Britain, liberal still means what it always has) used the word to allay the fears of liberals that socialism could lead to tyranny. As a result, liberalism became synonymous with socialism in the U.S.. Many liberals, knowing that socialism means slavery, were thus forced to ally themselves with conservatives as a coalition of reason.

And lastly, because of the nature of the book, and my time constraints, I'll be summarizing a chapter at a time.

Got it? Good. Tomorrow: Chapter I

Chapter I: The Abandoned Road

This chapter could very well have been called The Death of Liberalism. By 1931, in Britain and the United States, Hayek writes "that only those whose memory goes back to the years before the last war [WWI] know what a liberal world has been like".

Boy, no wonder I feel so out of place. I guess I'm a man after my time.

Yes, we not only turned our backs on liberalism, we also discarded centuries of liberal philosophy. In my opinion, 19th century liberalism is the pinnacle of Western thought. It is the ultimate ideal that evolved from the debates, discussions and writings of the greatest minds ever to have called themselves human.

Excuse me for being biased here, but I don't buy into that multicultural pap that all cultures and civilizations are equal. They are not. Western Civilization is clearly superior to every civilization currently and previously.

But it isn't just the 19th century philosophers that have been minimized, "but the basic individualism inherited by us from Erasmus and Montaigne, from Cicero and Tacitus, Pericles and Thucydides...". It is this individualism which made people of all classes "conscious of freedom". Hayek used the word freedom, though he admits that the word tolerant more closely defines 19th century liberalism.

21st century liberals are tolerant of everyone and everything except Western Civilization. God help you if you're a white, Christian, right-leaning male...or a 19th century liberal.

Because of the tenets of individualism, Western society flourished, especially after the Enlightenment. As progress due to the success of liberalism came to be expected, it started being taken for granted. Liberalism came to be "regarded as a negative creed" because particular individuals were "offered" little more than a share of the common progress - "a longer recognized as the result of the policy of freedom". Slowly but surely attitudes towards society and our approach to societal problems reversed, this led to the “entire abandonment of the individualist tradition which has created Western civilization”.

As the Western ideals of liberalism fell into disfavor from those who benefited most from it, “Germany became the center from which ideas destined to govern the world in the twentieth century spread…”.

Remember, Hayek recognizes that fascism and communism are two sides of the same tyrannical coin.

Hayek finishes Chapter I blazing,

But in spite of the ill-concealed contempt of an ever increasing number of Germans for those “shallow” Western ideals, or perhaps because of it, the people of the West continued to import German ideas and were even induced to believe that their own former convictions had merely been rationalizations of selfish interests, that free trade was a doctrine invented to further British interests, and that the political ideals of England and America were hopelessly outmoded and a thing to be ashamed of.

Hmmm, sounds more like the description of a modern leftist than a Nazi. Are you leftists starting to get it? Don't worry if you are not, there are fifteen more chapters.

Where We Are or, State of the Nation

Finally, when the State, close to its ruin, continues to subsist only in an illusory and ineffectual form; when the social bond is broken in all hearts; when the basest interest brazenly adopts the sacred name of the public good, then the general will becomes mute; all - guided by secret motives - are no more citizens in offering their opinions than if the State had never existed, and iniquitous decrees whose only goal is the private interest are falsely passed under the name of laws.

-Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1762), On The Social Contract, Book IV, Chapter I

Monsieur Rousseau elaborated in detail what he meant by general will, but I think you all get the idea.

How Much Worse Can It Get?

The illegal immigrant "rights" movement are not only Communists, but also blatent racists. I've written about this several times before in varying degrees of detail, The Outlander really did his/her homework with this post about La Raza (The Race) and MEChA (Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan, or Chicano Student Movement of Aztlan)

Michelle Malkin covers the California Governor's race in 2003 in this column. She writes,

MEChA's symbol is an eagle clutching a dynamite stick and machete-like weapon in its claws; its motto is " Por La Raza todo. Fuera de La Raza nada (For the Race, everything. For those outside the Race, nothing)." The MEChA Constitution calls on members to "promote Chicanismo within the community, politicizing our Raza (race) with an emphasis on indigenous consciousness to continue the struggle for the self-determination of the Chicano people for the purpose of liberating Aztlan." "Aztlan" is the group's term for the vast southwestern U.S. expanse, from parts of Washington and Oregon down to California and Arizona and over to Texas, which MEChA claims to be a mythical homeland and seeks to reconquer for Mexico (reconquista).

MEChA's liberation agenda, outlined in El Plan de Aztlan, states defiantly:

"We do not recognize capricious frontiers on the bronze continent. Brotherhood unites us, and love for our brothers makes us a people whose time has come and who struggles against the foreigner 'gabacho' who exploits our riches and destroys our culture. With our heart in our hands and our hands in the soil, we declare the independence of our mestizo nation. We are a bronze people with a bronze culture."

Substitute "Aryan" for "mestizo" and "white" for "bronze." Not much difference between the nutty philosophy of Bustamante's MEChA and Papa Schwarzenegger's evil Nazi Party. To date, however, the only exposure Bustamante's MEChA history has received has been on the Internet.

In a critical article on Bustamante published by David Horowitz's FrontPage last week, Lowell Ponte notes that "Like Nazism, MEChA has acquired more than a tinge of racism. In their tactics to advance Latinos and 'La Raza,' many of its activists have directed racist attacks against not only white-skinned Anglos but also against blacks, Asian-Americans and Jews -- in fact, against every non-Latino group."

A Special Quote to "Open-Border Republicans" and for Those Who Can't Figure Them Out

Merchants have no country. The mere spot they stand on does not constitute so strong an attachment as that from which they draw their gains.

Thomas Jefferson - Letter to Horatio G. Spafford (March 17, 1814)
Anybody who'd knowingly hire an illegal immigrant is selling this country down the Rio Grande. They are enemies of the United States and should be prosecuted as such.

Communists Unite!

Mike's America has an excellent post on the myth of assimilation in the 21st century.

Note to racists: Most "honkies" were born in the USA. Most "honkies" are citizens. Most illegals (Mexicans) would have never been born in the territory that is now the United States of America, even if we hadn't gone to war with Mexico. If you ignorant dumb-asses can read, here is some history.

Note to Patriots: These queef's are Communists. Remember that 50-year war we had with Soviet Union? Keep your head low, and your powder dry.
Note to the "out-of-the-shadows" gang: They're out, they're in one place, round'em up!

Note to Mexican nationals: Why aren't you in Mexico protesting for rights there? Oh yeah, because YOU'RE COWARDS.

I Raised Money for the Democrats

And I did a good job to boot. The tale of how I could betray what I know is right is long and interesting, but not the subject of this post. An abbreviated version is appropriate however:

I started watching McNeil/Lerher at a very young age, maybe six. By the time I was eleven or so, I realized that the fellow's they had from Cato were always the most reasonable. The free hours of my high school years were spent with girls, keg parties, and the symphonic orchestra. No time for TV or politics.

I went to college after HS as an Economics student. I hated being a business student, and I dropped out after a couple of semesters.

A few months later, some friends approached me and asked if I wanted to go to a Grateful Dead show. That was all she wrote: I put in my two weeks notice at work, removed a sizeable chunk of money from the bank, and hooked up with the tour in Nobelsville, Indiana. It was liberty. It was all I wanted. It was what I did till Jerry Garcia died in 1995.

The week after Jerry died, I enrolled back in school, this time as a political science student. I like politics, especially philosophy, nearly as much as I like the Dead. It was a perfect fit. I was an honor student, and well liked by most of my professors. I knew my sh*t. I was 27.

In the spring of 1996, I was asked to submit an essay on why I should be allowed to go as an intern to the Democrat or Republican conventions, and to pick which one I'd prefer if chosen. Naturally my first choice would have been the Libertarian convention, but that wasn't an option. So I chose the GOP.

I was later told that all three slots were taken for the trip to San Diego, but one professor had pushed for me to go to one of the conventions. He is a really great guy, even though he is a Yellow Dog Democrat. Anyway, I said OK. I'd been to Chicago several times by this point, I always had a great time, and I have several friends there; so I still looked forward to the trip, even though I knew most of the people I'd be surrounded by were loons.

Lots of stuff happened at that convention that will make most readers shake their heads and chuckle: I asked Sam Donaldson and Bob Schaeffer about the Oliver North/Bill Clinton connection...hoo boy! Deer in headlights! That's a story for another day.

The outfit I got assigned to was a group called Democratic Leadership for the 21st Century, or DL21C. My job as volunteer coordinator was to sell tickets to a bash at the Navy Pier. The party was to have Los Lobos, Steven Baldwin, CSN, Al Gore, and a host of other celeb's as guests.

The offices that had been set up for DL21C were in the Merchandise Mart. Getting to them was rather interesting: take the freight elevator to the third floor, then take the middle elevator of the elevator's on the north side of the hallway to the sixth floor, cross the hall to the elevator on the south, and go down to the fifth floor,... Anyway, the office was toward the end of a hallway. At the end of the hall was a room full of desks and telephones, the name on the door said Cook County Department of Education. Next to that office was another that had fold-away tables with telephones. The name on that door said that it was the office of the Chicago teachers union (NEA). I kid you not, I could open all three doors at once.

Ninety percent of the fundraising calls the interns (yes, we were getting graded for our work) made were from the office of the teacher's union. Some of those calls are stories all their own, whew. One day however, I had about ten more volunteers than phones. No problem. The man in charge of DL21C had keys to the DoE office as well.

That's right, about ten interns (I wonder how many had government grants/loans) spent an afternoon on taxpayer-financed telephones and office space raising money for the Clinton-Gore presidential campaign. Hell, it might have even been illegal to use the union office, but hey, DL21C-Chicago had those keys as well.

I don't know how much money was raised. The "cheap seats" were $75 and the balcony seats were $250. There were probably 250-300 "unwashed" (those were the $75 folks. They were referred to as "unwashed" by one of the organizers) , and probably 100 or so of the $250 people.

Al and Tipper showed up (it was the second time that week I was within rock throwing distance of that clown), CSN didn't. I wonder how many purchased tickets just to see CSN? I wonder how many got their money back? Steven Baldwin was there. Man! I hadn't seen someone that drunk since...well, the night before. What a slob. He looked like he'd slept in his clothes, and he smelled of booze and tobacco (you know the smell).

Well, that's the story of how I broke the law to help elect Bill Clinton. On the plus side, I did get an "A".
