Hispanic Racial Consciousness, Part II
American Renaissance
They make no secret of wanting your country.
by Jared Taylor
 Part I described thedeep racial/ethnic loyal-ties Hispanic Americansretain to their countriesof origin, and explained how they have turned their backs on assimila-tion and expect theUnited States to accom-modate their loyaltiesand preferences. It con-cluded by noting that ev-ery year several thou- sand Mexican-Ameri-cans go home in coffinsto be buried in the coun-try they consider their true home.
I
f some Mexican-Americans havetheir way, they will not have to go back to be buried; Mexico will cometo them. What is called the
 Reconquista
movement aims to break the Southwestoff from the United States and reattachit to Mexico or even establish it as anindependent, all-Hispanic nation. In his-toric terms, it would reverse the territo-rial consequences of the Mexican-American war.
 Reconquista
is generally promoted by the best-educated Hispan-ics, many of whom were born in theUnited States.Charles Truxillo, a professor of Chicano studies at the University of NewMexico, thinks
 Republica del Norte
Xwould be a good name for a new His- panic nation. The Republic of the Northwould contain all of California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas and the south-ern part of Colorado. Its capital would probably be Los Angeles. The Albuquer-que-born Prof. Truxillo says the newnation is “an inevitability,” and should be created “by any means necessary.” Hedoubts violence will be necessary, how-ever, because shifting demographics willmake the transition a natural one. “I maynot live to see the Hispanic homeland,”he says, “but by the end of the centurymy students’ kids will live in it, sover-eign and free.”Juan Jose Peña, Hispanic activist andvice chairman of the Hispanic Round-table of New Mexico agrees with Prof.Truxillo, adding, “I’ve studied lots of civilizations. The United States is justlike any other empire. It’s not going tolive forever. Eventually it will break down because of stresses.”Armando Navarro, Hispanic activistand professor at the University of Cali-fornia at Riverside is another 
 Recon-quista
advocate, noting that if currentsocial and demographic trends continue,secession is inevitable. “One could ar-gue that while Mexico lost the war in1848, it will probably win it in the 21stcentury, in terms of the numbers,” heexplained. “A secessionist movement isnot something that youcan put away and say it isnever going to happen inthe United States,” headds. “Time and historychange.”Xavier Hermosillo, a prominent businessmanand leader of a Hispanicactivist group in Los An-geles, explained that“we’re taking it [Califor-nia] back, house by house, block by block.” He adds:“People ought to wake upand smell the refried beans.”Probably the best known
 Reconquista
organization is theChicano Student Movement of Aztlan, better know by its Spanish acronym of MEChA. The word Aztlan in the organi-zation’s name means “the bronze conti-nent,” and is the name activists plan togive the new nation they carve out of theUnited States. One of its founding docu-ments, El Plan de Aztlan, describes white people as “the brutal ‘gringo’,” and callsfor Mexicans to reclaim “the land of their  birth” and “declare the independence of our mestizo nation.” The group’s mottois
 Por la Raza todo. Fuera de La Razanada
: “For the race, everything. For those outside the race, nothing.”Founded in 1969 at the University of California at Santa Barbara, MEChAnow has chapters on nearly every Cali-fornia college campus and in most highschools in the state. It has a consider-able presence in other Western states aswell. The official symbol of MEChA isan eagle holding an Incan battle axe and
Demonstrating for amnesty. Are they Mexican or American?
“We’re taking Californiaback, house by house,block by block. Peopleought to wake up andsmell the refried beans.”
 
American Renaissance - 2 - May 2007
 Letters from Readers
Sir — I wanted to express my appre-ciation for Jared Taylor’s “Banned inHalifax” in the February issue. It’s the best debunking I’ve ever read of themandatory group think of our times. I’vesent copies to several friends.It’s also a sad and shocking requiemfor a country of which the worst thatcould have been said was that it is a bitcold and boring. African gangs inWinnipeg? MS-13 in Calgary, beneaththe glorious Canadian Rockies? How inHeaven’s name did they get
there
? Noone could have even imagined this 20years ago, and yet Canadians seem to be determined to close their eyes to whatthey are doing to their country.Robert Michael, Ft. Collins, Colo.Sir — So Jared Taylor was finally ableto tell the people of Halifax what hethinks about racial diversity (see “Re-turn to Halifax” in the April issue). LastI heard, the city was still standing, andif Ottawa has begun mass deportationof non-whites, I must have missed thestory. What were these people so afraidof? If the left believes racial diversityand multiculturalism are strengths, whynot let people like Jared Taylor take anopposing view? If everybody believesmillions of non-whites are a benefit toCanada, no one will listen anyway.In fact, Mr. Taylor tells the truth, andthe rulers of this PC empire don’t wantthe people to notice they are wearing noclothes. I don’t agree with the AR posi-tion on everything, but you make somevalid points. There are problems withracial diversity. I support a multiculturalCanada, and see absolutely nothingwrong with talking about its problems.That’s how solutions are found.Michael O’Rourke, Nelson, B.C.,CanadaSir — I’m glad to see that you areselling copies of the Taylor-March de- bate on DVD. I know next to nothingabout Peter March, but he has my re-spect. As far as I can tell, he got nothingout of the debate, except perhaps seeinghis name in the papers. I’m sure he didn’twin friends in the faculty lounge at St.Mary’s University. Let us be thankfulthere is at least one man in Halifax whostill believes in free speech.Irene Santrock, Kittanning, Penn.Sir — It is indeed inspiring to see thatthere are some whites who unapol-ogetically stand up for the interests of their people, as do the men of the VlaamsBelang (see “Men of the West, Stand andFight” in the April issue.) What is evenmore encouraging is that the VB is a powerful electoral force. When willthere be an American party that speaksfor whites?Bill Travis, Plano, Tex.Sir — As an American, perhaps I amnaive, but how can a court declare a po-litical party illegal? I thought Belgiumwas a democracy. But I suppose in acountry so sick that the establishmentcurries favor with a hostile alien minor-ity—one that despises and seeks to de-stroy its host—anything is possible.What a pity Belgians don’t have SecondAmendment rights. Frank Vanhecke andPhilip Dewinter seem like the kind of men who would use them for more thanduck hunting.Charles Ford, Jackson, Miss.Sir — The photo on the cover of theApril issue is of a group of smiling His- panics who must have been demonstrat-ing for amnesty. One holds a sign thatsays humanity is
una raza
or “one race.”Another holds one that says, in English,“I love diversity.” Curiously, every facein this little group appears to be His- panic.Like all non-whites, Hispanics “lovediversity” only for whites. They are keen boosters of mixing when that means ad-mission for them into neighborhoods,institutions, or a civilization they couldnot create or maintain. Once they be-come a majority, they lose interest in “di-versity,” instead preferring to turn what-ever part of the United States they haveconquered into foreign outposts. Theytake from us only our material advan-tages and the crudest bits of our popular culture; our demeanor, our way of be-ing, our ideals, and our heritage remainutterly alien to them.I suspect that the strong sentiment inthis country against illegal immigrationis a sign that more and more Americansunderstand this. Opposition to illegalshas become the one more-or-less accept-able expression of a long-suppressedwhite racial consciousness, though eventhis is constantly scrutinized for signs of “hate.” I have some optimism that anti-illegal feeling now runs so high thatCongress dares not pass a broad am-nesty. If Congress does take firm actionagainst illegals, I would like to believethat sentiment against them will not dis-sipate, that whites will begin to say moreopenly that it makes no differencewhether it is legal or illegal—displace-ment will not be tolerated.The giant is slowly awakening!Aaron Harding, Columbia, S.C.Sir — Thank you for “Hispanic Con-sciousness” in the April issue. I’m sick of pressing “one for English!” It’s re-freshing to hear someone discredit His- panics with their own words. Whatever these people are—saints or sinners— they ain’t us, and they don’t belong here.I’m looking forward to reading parttwo. Articles like this, and the earlier series on black racial consciousness (seeAR, Sept, Oct. and Nov. 2006), are whyI subscribe to AR.John White, Littleton, N.H.

a lighted stick of dynamite. The sloganthat goes with the symbol,
 Hasta lavictoria, siempre!
(Until victory, al-ways!) was a favorite of Fidel Castro andthe Cuban revolution.On some campuses, conservativeshave called attention to MEChA’s ra-cially divisive message, and Stanfordstudents voted by a narrow margin towithhold university funding from thegroup. At the University of California atLos Angeles, the campus Republicanstried at least to get the group to denouncethe explicitly secessionist El Plan deAztlan, but it refused. “We will stand bythe ‘El Plan de Aztlan’ because it hasguided us,” MEChA chairwoman Eliza- beth Alamillo explained.Many Mexican intellectuals eagerlyanticipate
 Reconquista
. According toone newspaper report:“The Mexican writer Elena Ponia-towska affirmed today that Mexico is presently recovering the territories lostin the past to the United States, thanksto emigration: ‘The people of the poor,the lice-ridden and the
cucarachas
[cockroaches] are advancing in theUnited States, a country that wants tospeak Spanish because 33.4 million His- panics impose their culture.’ Ms. Ponia-towska added that ‘this phenomenon . . .fills me with jubilation, because the His- panics can have a growing force betweenPatagonia and Alaska.’ ”Even Mexican government spokes-men speak the language of irredentism.At a symposium in Los Angeles on the150th anniversary of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, which marked theend of the Mexican-American War, theMexican consul general, Jose AngelPescador Osuna observed, “Even thoughI am saying this part serious and part joking, I think we are practicing
la Reconquista
in California.”In 2005,
 Reconquista
sentimentgot an unusual public airing when75 billboards appeared in Los An-geles advertising Spanish-languageKRCA-TV. The billboards showedtwo newscasters in front of thedowntown skyline, with “Los Ange-les, CA” written above them. The“CA” was crossed out, and “Mex-ico” was stamped over it in brightred letters. Below, it said in Span-ish:
Tu ciudad. Tu equipo
. (Your city.Your team.) Even a few gringos got themessage. “The joke here is, ‘We’re tak-ing back California,’ ” explained StuartFischoff, who teaches media psychologyat California State University at LosAngeles. “Underneath the joke is part of the truth.”Part of the great appeal Fidel Castrohas long enjoyed in Mexico is his un-wavering support for Mexican irre-dentism. In a 1997 speech in MexicoCity, he renewed his call for the UnitedStates to return Texas, California, Ari-zona, and New Mexico. He said Ameri-cans are “terrorized” when Mexicanscross into what is in fact their own terri-tory.The spirit of conquest
 
need not be lim-ited to the Southwest. Mass immigration,and the unwillingness of native-bornAmericans to insist on assimilation bynewcomers leaves the impression thewhole country is up for grabs. Riverside, New Jersey, is one of a handful of Ameri-can cities that have tried to pass ordi-nances to discourage hiring or rentingto illegal immigrants. Rev. MiguelRivera, president of the National Coali-tion of Latino Clergy & Christian Lead-ers, noting that legal residency is notrequired to purchase property in the US,said illegal aliens would retaliate by buy-ing rather than renting. New ownerswould welcome other illegals, whowould eventually dominate throughsheer force of numbers. “Riverside isgoing to be ours,” he said.
The Official Mexican View
It is official Mexican government policy to urge Mexicans living in theUnited States to remain loyal to Mexico.This policy applies broadly to all natu-ralized and even US-born citizens of Mexican origin, but government spokes-men direct their strongest efforts towardsMexican-Americans who hold electedoffice. In 1995, for example, then-presi-dent of Mexico Ernesto Zedillo himself told a group of Mexican-American poli-ticians, “You’re Mexicans—Mexicanswho live north of the border.” Two yearslater in Chicago, he took the same mes-sage to the Hispanic advocacy group, the National Council of La Raza. He“proudly affirmed that the Mexican na-tion extends beyond the territory en-closed by its borders and that Mexicanmigrants are an important—a very im- portant—part of this.”
Elena Poniatowska even wants Alaska.
