Chicano Park is promoting the political ideology of the radical Chicano Movement of the 1960’s. Hatred of cops is not a recent development or something that was started by grievances with the local San Diego police. It’s a major feature of their ideology which is a mixture of Chicano racial nationalism and communism.
The two people verbally attacking the two police officers are probably Brown Berets, a kind of paramilitary group that serves as an enforcer for the militants who run the park. Chicano Park is a city park of San Diego, which the militants occupied in 1970 as the first part of Aztlan, the American Southwest, which they claim as their national homeland.
One of the four Founders of the Chicano movement , Rodolfo “Corky” Gonzales, mandated the killing of cops as a revolutionary act, not a crime. Chongo has various meanings, some say it is slang for “monkey”. It is used in the video as a slur for “police”.
The followers of Reies Tijerina, another Founder, actually shot two law enforcement officers in a raid on a courthouse in Tierra Amarilla, New Mexico. The purpose of the raid was to kidnap a district attorney, who was threatening to charge Tijerina. One of the officers was killed just before Tijerina was to be tried in court, presumably by Tijerina’s followers, so that he would not testify in the trial.
Corky Gonzales and Reies Tijerina are honored in the historical mural at Chicano Park, along with communist dictators, Fidel Castro and Che Guevara. Corky Gonzales visited Chicano Park for the annual Park Day celebration. Some of his cremation ashes are (illegally) spread around the Zapata statue in the park.
The group of Chicano militants who occupy Chicano Park resembles a cult. The police should realize, if the don’t already, that the two militants yelling a them have been indoctrinated into an ideology and will not respond to reason or kindness. They would have to be deprogrammed. Militant Chicanos teach the kids at an early age to hate law enforcement.
This criticism does not apply to all Hispanics, Latinos or Mexican Americans, in general, or even to all who Identify as “Chicanos”. It’s about a small group of Chicano extremists, who control this park.
