The Good, The Bad, and the Really, Really Ugly
It seems that in occupied California Cruz Bustamante, Antonio Villaraigosa, and possibly some other traitorous members of the Hispano-Schutzstaffel have received threats. From a purely humanitarian perspective I deplore those threats as much as any other reasonable human being. However, given the racist rhetoric that these folks regularly spew and their brazenly stated goals. I have a hard giving a damn.
There are a number of different groups with somewhat differing agendas and varying degrees of radicalization. Unfortunately, the differences won't help rank and file Americans very much since our choices range from being overrun and become second- or third-class citizens in our own land, or being ethnically cleansed from the places where most of us were born. I for one will not go quietly.
Despite warning against runaway immigration from the present day extending back to the writings of the Founding Fathers the people we depended upon to protect us have set us up instead. I can excuse some of it because for so long it was a creeping process, but now it's the 21rst Century "1939" and we're Poland. The creeping process has become a runaway train that even the blind can see, unless that blind person is employed by the executive branch of the government. Just a few years back I was told my a Latino acquaintance in my hometown that if I ever wanted to move back, "Better learn Spanish." It wasn't a threat, he meant it as friendly advice.
All of which brings us back to the gruesome twosome of the Golden State. They are unrepentant Reconquistas and it is insane that they were even allowed to run. Just 50 or so years ago Julius and Ethyl Rosenberg were executed as traitors. Today, we elect traitors to high public office and write paeans to them in the mainstream media. I fear we've reached one of those historical tipping points. The window of opportunity to settle this problem relatively easily has long since passed. At this point, we can only reduce the size of the catastrophe ahead, yet, even that opportunity is being squandered.
Unlike some people, I don't think that the country will be split up, or the Southwest ceded in a cowardly manner to Mexico. What I do believe, know in my own heart, is that blood will be spilled and I already grieve for the future victims because it is so unnecessary. I'm also already filled with trepidation because I live in what will likely be the battleground. Far worse, all the people I love, including my children and grandchildren live here as well.
If you're one of those who laugh and roll your eyes at what I've written, and what others like me have written, I would direct you to look into what the Reconquista groups say themselves. They seem to be writing less and less about whether they should steal our land, which was bad enough, and more and more about what they're going to do with it when they take it. For so many of them, their irredentist plans are just an inevitable fact of nature. Failure is incomprehensible to them. If you don't believe us, check out their web sites yourselves, most of the time they don't even bother to hide it by using Spanish. Examples: La Voz de Aztlan, MEChA, La Raza, and others.
Hitler detailed his plans in his book Mein Kampf. Nobody outside of Germany paid much attention to it. Of those that paid attention to it, most blew it off as hyperbole. So what are we waiting for? For some Hispano-Fascist to write a book called Mi Lucha so we can ignore that too?
