The anti-American, anti-Jewish rhetoric coming from the Hispanic separatist movement in the southwest U.S. threatens to spark a second civil war, says geopolitical analysts Jack Wheeler.
In a column on his intelligence website, To the Point, Wheeler covers the implication of a recent rally in Baldwin Park, Calif., where a small group of protesters demonstrated against a taxpayer-supported monument that celebrates the time before the white man came to California. Two inscriptions include: “This land was Mexican once, was Indian always, and is and will be again” and “It was better before they came.”
“The rally was met by a far larger, violent counter-demonstration led by an organization of Mexican Nazis who call themselves Reconquistas,” writes Wheeler.
“These are people who want to ‘reconquer’ the entire American Southwest ceded to the U.S. in 1848 and have it become part of Mexico again. What makes them Nazis is their pathological anti-Semitism. Their hatred for America is equaled only by their hatred of Jews.”
Continues Wheeler: “One of them yelled at a television cameraman at the Baldwin Park fracas: ‘Too bad Osama Bin Laden didn’t drop a hydrogen bomb on that Jewish s–thole town Manhattan.’
“One of the Reconquista chants was ‘Go back to Europe, go back to England, Gringos.’ Another was ‘Viva (long live) Zarqawi, the Gringo killer,’ in praise of arch-terrorist Abu Musab al-Zarqawi’s killing American soldiers in Iraq.”
Wheeler points out one of the chief organizers of the Reconquistas is the radical student group MEChA, which says it is committed to “the physical liberation of Occupied America.”
Writes Wheeler: “MEChA’s motto, as stated in its founding document, The Spiritual Plan of Aztlan, could not possibly be more racist: Por La Raza Todo, Fuera de La Raza Nada: for the race (their own ‘bronze’ race), everything; outside the race, nothing.”
Recalling the Spanish Christian knights of an earlier day, Wheeler writes, “Today in America, Christian knights are called Minutemen. They are leading a real Reconquista to liberate their country from an alien conquering invasion. It is the Minutemen and other pro-American patriots that are the true Reconquistas, who understand the choice that must be made: Either the illegal invasion from Mexico is stopped and all illegals deported back to Mexico, or there will be a Second Civil War waged to break America apart.”
Wheeler believes the key to whether or not Los Angeles will give in to the “Mexican Nazis” lies in the hands of the new mayor, Antonio Villaraigosa. Problem is, Villaraigosa was president of the UCLA chapter of MEChA when a student there in the ’70s.
“Which will thrive under the mayoralty of Antonio Villaraigosa: peaceful and patriotic Mexican-American citizens, or Mexican Nazis and illegals?” asks Wheeler. “Both can’t. The thriving of one requires the diminishing of the other. One can always hope, but as for me, I was born and grew up in L.A., got my B.A. at UCLA, doctorate at USC, and spent most of my life there. I’m glad I don’t live there any longer.”
