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."

Does the KKK have campus offices?

I don't see a difference.

Oh there's a difference. The KKK is a fringe group.

Not everyone who supports decriminalizing immigration does so for racially charged reasons. I simply don't see why being on the wrong side of an arbitary line on a map is an offense worth prosecuting people for.

Hi Seth.

I don't want to prosecute anybody except employers.

Why is the border arbitrary? If there are no borders, do we have a country? Who is entrusted to protect the rights of US citizens if we have no country? Is citizenship important to you?

You do realize that more people means less liberty for US citizens? How long do you think we can import Third World poverty and maintain any liberties at all? Is there a number (population) that you think eventually degrades the quality of life for everybody?

Sorry for all the questions, but the libertarian ideal on this issue seems to be destroying all of our liberty. Thus, I find it interesting...and ironic.

I forgot to mention, libertarians have some awfully dangerous bedfellows on this issue.

Is is possible that La Raza, ANSWER, and MEChA view libertarians as "useful idiots"?

One more question and statement, promise.

By allowing in massive numbers of Mexican immigrants (safety valve), we are preventing much-needed reforms (revolt) in Mexico. Is holding accountable and responsible one's own country important to libertarians?

The borders are not "arbitrary" to the groups mentioned in the post. They seem to take the borders more seriously than the Senate and the President.

I know that you dodge ideological purism by saying you're a right-leaning libertarian.

I never thought about the libertarian position on immigration until this issue became an issue over the last several months. Now I have many of the same questions you do.

Put yourself in a purist pose and give me the answers.

If borders are just arbitrary lines on a map is it ok for us to go down and drill for oil in MEXICO?
