Mexica Movement activists protest in L.A.
A radical Hispanic group is promoting a boycott of the Walt Disney Company because, contends the Mexica Movement, the entertainment giant “has made a habit of hiring talk show hosts who spread the Minutemen white supremacist racist agenda.”
The boycott announcement specifically cites radio legend and Presidential Medal of Freedom winner Paul Harvey, as well as popular talker Doug McIntyre. Both Harvey and McIntyre are nationally syndicated by ABC, which is owned by Disney.
McIntyre was instrumental in exposing a taxpayer-funded Los Angeles school backed by radical groups that lay claim to the Southwestern U.S. As WND reported, the principal of the Academia Semillas del Pueblo Charter School, Marcos Aguilar, has said he believes in racial segregation and sees his school as part of a larger cultural “struggle.”
Among the school’s supporters are the National Council of La Raza Charter School Development Initiative; Raza Development Fund, Inc.; and the Pasadena City College chapter of MeCHA, or Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan.
“La Raza,” or “the Race,” is a designation by many Mexicans who see themselves as part of a transnational ethnic group they hope will one day reclaim Aztlan, the mythical birthplace of the Aztecs. In Chicano folklore, Aztlan includes California, Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico and parts of Colorado and Texas.
On its website, the Mexica Movement calls for “an immediate international boycott against The Walt Disney Company and all of its holdings. We are asking for this boycott because Disney has made a habit of hiring talk show hosts who spread the Minutemen white supremacist racist agenda against the Mexican and Central American communities in the United States.”
The organization will continue calling for the Disney boycott, it says, “until we are assured of the immediate firing of all of Disney’s ABC racist radio terrorists who are spreading racist hate against the Mexican and Central American community by inciting threats of violence against us.”
The Mexica Movement calls Harvey and McIntyre “the top racist Nazis in this campaign against our people” who, they say, “are promoting racist hate against our people and they are promoting an atmosphere of fear in our communities.”
Saying McIntyre has “incited bomb threats” against the MeCHA-supported school in Los Angeles, and that Harvey – “the other monster” – is “proud of the racist genocide that Europeans committed against the Indigenous people of this continent,” Mexica calls the almost universally loved elder statesman of talk radio “the KKK of the radio airwaves.”
“Yes, we are radical,” says the Mexica Movement on its website. “More radical than you can imagine.”
As WND has reported, a website documenting the statements and tactics of Hispanic activists says it is these radical groups themselves that are the ones guilty of racism and hate speech.
WeHateGringos.com begins with a warning that the site “contain graphic examples of hate and racism that has and is occurring in large cities and small towns across America.”
States the site: “The website WeHateGringos.com is dedicated to exposing the other side of illegal immigration … the side our president, many in Congress, the media and especially the racist hate groups do not want us to see.”
Indeed, earlier last week top presidential adviser Karl Rove traveled to Los Angeles to speak to La Raza in person. The Bush administration has contributed millions of dollars directly to “La Raza.”
WND Editor Joseph Farah wrote of Rove’s outreach: “The group sponsors and directs racist schools. It promotes the ‘reconquista’ movement that claims the American Southwest belongs to Mexico. In fact, its very name – which translates to ‘the race’ – exposes its agenda. … These people are Mexican Nazis.”
And columnist Michelle Malkin reported that La Raza “snapped up $15.2 million in federal grants last year alone and more than $30 million since 1996. Undisclosed amounts went to get-out-the-vote efforts supporting La Raza political positions. The U.S. Department of Education funneled nearly $8 million in taxpayer grants to the group for a nationwide charter-schools initiative.”
