Republican Nominee John McCain will speak at the annual conference of the National Council of La Raza (The Race), the extreme Hispanic lobby group that advocates a militant "reconquista" of the Southwestern United States. Citing the engagement with the group as “part of his commitment to talking with all Americans.”, McCain will attend the convention in San Diego July 14, according to a press release which also announced the launch of his own Spanish website. McCain, favored by La Raza due to his previous calls for a total amnesty on illegal immigrants in the U.S. and sustained opposition to efforts to strengthen controls at the U.S.-Mexican border, will repeat the appearance he made at the 2004 National Council of La Raza in Phoenix, Arizona where he made a keynote address. McCain has a long and fruitful relationship with the group. In 1999 La Raza honored the Senator at its tenth annual Capital Awards for "staunch support of the Hispanic community". La Raza describes itself as the largest Latino civil rights and advocacy organization in the United States, but it caters to the radical Chicano movement that says California, Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico and parts of Colorado and Texas belong to Aztlan, the mythical birthplace of the Aztecs. We have previously covered the Nightmare Racism and Open Call for Revolution from La Raza as well as the Aztlan reconquista movement and MEChA, who call their American based radio stations "the Invasion". Such groups have no desire to respect US culture and wish for nothing more than the US to be broken up. They call for the implementation of The Plan of San Diego, a plot hatched in 1915 in Northern Mexico and throughout the Southwest that called for the genocide of all white males over 16. The founder of La Raza and professor at University of Texas, Arlington, Jose Angel Gutierrez, is on record as saying "We have got to eliminate the gringo, and what I mean by that is if the worst comes to the worst, we have got to kill him." In Reality La Raza is a minority movement, yet its reach has become infinitely more widespread due to millions it has received in federal grants and the power it has been afforded by bedhopping establishment politicians such as Hillary Clinton. Bill Clinton and Karl Rove have previously rubbed shoulders with the group also. In 2006 by Rep. Charles Norwood, R-Ga., outlined just how embedded with Washington Power brokers the group had become. In a piece entitled The Truth About 'La Raza Norwood condemned the group as a radical "pro-illegal immigration lobbying organization that supports racist groups calling for the secession of the western United States as a Hispanic-only homeland." La Raza was one of the key groups behind last year's so called "amnesty bill", a piece of legislation drafted in total secrecy which very nearly passed. As the Washington Post reported, Latino national interest groups including La Raza now have virtual veto power in the immigration debate. Make no mistake, the reconquista movement has big corporate funding. In almost every case we have researched, rich white men are behind the neo-Aztec movement. In one case a businessman in California bought almost 700 signs telling the public that Los Angeles is now Mexico (see picture). Some Hispanic-American coalition groups such as You Don't Speak For Me have attempted to counter the racist propaganda of the reconquista groups and soundly reject the media myth that the vast majority of Hispanics support such beliefs. Alex Jones' mini documentary Battle For The Republic exposes how the elite are using illegal immigration and pushing amnesty as a means of pulverizing the American middle class and ensuring that U.S. citizens, black, white and hispanic alike, are forced to sacrifice their freedom and sovereignty as America is sunk into a third world cesspool. To see the possible next president openly embracing a group like La Raza should send chills down the spine of any American who values civil rights and equality, whatever their race. Of course, if you disagree with McCain's courtship of "The Race", you can always vote for Obama. Editorial Digest: Keeping You Informed!
