|Hispanic Hate Harangue
by Larry Stirling 8/13/07
A few months back, a beautiful, 22-year old American woman named Rachel Smith made the finals in the Miss Universe contest in Mexico City.
Her interview was interrupted by a wave of catcalls from the mostly Mexican audience. She had been subjected to similar treatment throughout the entire week.
In 1999, Miss USA Kenya Moore received similar treatment.
Our Olympic and international soccer teams also endure booing during our national anthem along with chants of Osama! Osama!
Sometimes taunts are punctuated by bags of urine being thrown at American athletes.
Are these isolated incidents at odds with what Democrat Mexican-American leaders espouse? Not hardly.

All of this hate speech is created and fostered by the hard anti-American left throughout Latin America.
In the United States, the Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Atzlan (MEChA) breeds the hate.
Formed during the Vietnam War years, it was just another communist subversive organization claiming to represent a large group of people few of whom have ever heard of them.
MEChA, a brown KKK, claims chapters at nearly every college and university in California.
Will gutless, college administrators ever work up the nerve to kick them off campus for their hate speech?
MEChA's motto is: Por la Raza, todo. Fuera la Raza, nada. Reasonably translated: Everything for us, nothing for you."
I have seen MEChA classes given in a San Diego Unified School. My recent requests to confirm or deny MEChA's continued presence there have gone unanswered.
One board member did admit that MEChA "may have some clubs on campus."
If I were a trustee of the second largest school district in the state, I would darn well know whether a brown hate group was operating on my campuses.
While MEChA officially eschews violence claiming that their moral underpinnings come from Caesar Chavez, it spawned a paramilitary off shoot called the Brown Berets that claim no such scruples.
MEChA alumni and fellow travelers include some of the highest Hispanic office holders in California
And they don't hesitate to spew their hate when they think we are not listening:
"Go back to Boston! Go back to Plymouth Rock! Pilgrims! Get out! We are the future. You are old and tired. Go on. We have beaten you. Leave like beaten rats. You old white people. It is your duty to die ... we are going to take over."
--Augustin Cebada of the Brown Berets.
I know, good old Augustin does sound one toke over the line, but he is spouting his commie handler's sound bites with the appropriate passion.
The humorous part is that had Augustin's white European, Spanish forbears not slaughtered so many real Mexicans, Augustin and his fellow travelers would be on the receiving end of a similar tirade chanted by a mass of Aztecs, Olmecs, Zapotecs and Mixtecs.
If he hates the United States so much, why not go to Mexico and fix the mess that his forefathers made there instead of trying to grab the results of several hundred years of hard work in this country?
But it is not just the nutty brown-beret guys talking this way.
Richard Alatorre, a long-time colleague of mine in the state Assembly said, "They're afraid were going to take over the government institutions. They're right, we're here to stay." Who is "we," Richard? And are you still under house arrest for your legal problems?
Another legislative colleague Art Torres is the chair (apparently for life) of the California Democratic Party.
Said Torres, "Remember 187, the proposition to deny taxpayer funds for services to non citizens? That was the last gasp of white America in California."
My guess is that Art did not send copies of this speech to the "white" members of the California Democratic Party.
Gloria Molina, yet another colleague from the legislature said, "We are politicizing every single one of these new citizens that are becoming citizens of this country (sic)...I got to tell you that a lot of people are saying 'I'm going out there and vote because I want to pay them back.'" I don't think she meant, "pay them back" in a nice way.
The latest incarnation of Hispanic hate haranguers is Enrique Morone, who is Mau Mau-ing the installation of a statue of Pete Wilson in San Diego's downtown, which Pete led through redevelopment. The monument was paid for by private funds and is to be erected on private property.
Morone's beef with Pete is that he supported Proposition 187 that said California taxpayer funds should go to Californians exactly like the laws of Mexico.
Tony Blair, the former English prime minister, put it best: "If you want to know about a country, just ask whether people are breaking in or trying to escape."
America is a good nation. It deserves leadership that pulls us together. Hispanic hate mongers do not qualify. CRO
