These are two excerpts from a speech made by Rodolfo “Corky” Gonzales in 1969 at UCLA, one of the four founders of the radical Chicano political movement. The “Mission” incident he talks about is apparently a then well-known case, in which Chicanos killed a cop in the Mission District of San Francisco in 1969. The Chicanos were members of radical Chicano organizations, including the Brown Berets de Aztlan. See the video description for a link.
These revolutionary ideas are still taught in Chicano studies classes in universities and high schools across the nation. The ashes of Corky Gonzales are scattered in Chicano Park in San Diego, according to the Chicano Park Steering Committee chairman, Tomasa Camarillo. The Chicanos consider the park to be “sacred”, as the first piece of reconquered land.
A Chongo (monkey) is a slur for the police and “vato” means “guy” or in this case presumably a Chicano street tough. The “Comancheros” was a group that terrorized innocent ranchers, whom they claimed were living on land that belonged to them.
Corky Gonzales is honored in the historical mural at Chicano Park, along with others, such as communist dictators, Fideo Castro and Che Guevara. He is fourth from the left in this image of the historical mural.
Reies Tijerina was one of the four founders of the militant Chicano political movement. This is an excerpt from his talk at UCLA in 1969 where he declared that La Raza would take over the entire American continent, north, and south. He mentions that this mestizo racial supremacy theory is based on the book by Jose Vasconcelos, who was the major pro-Nazi propagandist in Latin America at the start of World War II.
Though he says La Raza will dominate “with peace”, Reies Tijerina was infamous for his armed raid on a courthouse in Tierra Amarilla, New Mexico, where he hoped to kidnap a DA that opposed him. His men shot two police officers in that raid, both men and the DA were Hispanic. Tijerina wrote in his biography that his biggest enemies had always been other Hispanics, who wanted to live the American way of life. When he was sent to prison, he was diagnosed as being a psychopath.
Tijerina is one of the Chicano leaders honored in the historical mural at Chicano Park in San Diego, along with communist dictators, Castro and Che Guevara. He’s third from the right in the image below.
The officer, who was killed, was going to testify against Tijerina. He was brutally beaten to death shortly before the trial. They put his body in his vehicle and pushed it off a cliff into a ravine to make it look like an accident. They did not have enough evidence to charge anyone, but it was thought fairly certain to have been Tijerina’s men who murdered him to prevent him from testifying against Tijerina. See the book, “Tijerina and the Courthouse Raid” by Peter Nabokov for more information about Reies Tijerina.
Compared Himself to Nazi
In an Interview with the Albuquerque Journal, Tijerina compared himself to Nazi war criminal, Rudolf Hess. See the image below.
Marco Amaral is a teacher, a communist and “Raza” (Hispanic racial/ethnic) nationalist. In 2022, he is campaigning in the primary to be the Superintendent of Public Instruction. So, every voter should know what his real political ideology is about. Amaral is almost completely open about being a radical who believes in a violent revolution.
Update: The San Diego Union-Tribune actually endorsed Marco. They want such a radical, anti-American to be making policy for California schools. Click here for more info.
Amaral believes that he should teach radical Marxist and La Raza racial identity ideology in the schools and he has been doing it for quite a few years already. This post is not intended to incite any physical violence against Amaral, as he has claimed in the past, but to better inform the public about his fanatical political ideology, especially to inform the parents of the children he is intends to radicalize.
First, this video below was a campaign ad when he ran for the Board of Trustees in 2018. He subsequently won a seat on the South Bay Union School District in San Diego County. The photo of him at a protest in the beret and paramilitary uniform has been added to the video.
Reprimanded by South Bay Union School District Board – 2019
He was reprimanded by the SBUSD Board for a comment that he delivered to the Sweetwater Union High School Board on August 26, 2019 for his radical behavior and use of obscene language in front of students.
As an educator, how have your political principles shaped your approach in the classroom? How have your experiences in the classroom shaped your political outlook?
I have identified as an Internationalist for several years now. Internationalism pushes me to engage the scholarly and social work of people from around the world, specifically – people that are struggling against the forces of oppression and bigotry. Therefore, after years of engaging as an activist educator influenced by the work of people ranging from Frantz Fanon and Antonia Darder to Paulo Freire and the resistance work of Indigenous communities, I decided that my classroom couldn’t be confined to the limited understandings of the “American Educational Model.”
Amaral says he was most influenced by Frantz Fanon, among two others. Fanon was a revolutionary Marxist and radical anti-colonialist, who advocated violent overthrow of the system, even via a “murderous campaign”, as he says. I don’t know about the other two that he mentions as influences, but I would guess they have similar radical ideologies.
Below is a quote from page 2 of “The Wretched of the Earth” by Frantz Fanon. This is Fanon’s most well-known book. You don’t have to read very far to find Fanon preaching violent, bloody revolution. A central theme of the book is that extreme violence is necessary in order to overthrow the existing, so-called “colonial systems” around the world. Is this what Californians would like their children to be taught?

Nicaraguan Molotov Man -2018
At one time Amaral had this famous photo of a Nicaraguan revolutionary, called the “Molotov Man”, uploaded to his Facebook page, but he took it down when he ran for the school board. It tells you that he identifies with communist bomb throwers.
Teaching Kids To Hate Police – 2018
Amaral identifies as a Marxist revolutionary and Chicano ethnic/racial militant. Here he is seen marching with a banner in Spanish that reads, “Students for the Liberation of Aztlan”. “Aztlan” refers to the Southwestern US, which militant Chicanos claim as the national homeland of La Raza (The Race), that is the Hispanic mestizo race.
Amaral believes in radicalizing students. The melee in the video below started when a student assaulted a police sergeant. The school where he teaches is about a mile away. Why would he be so much involved and he just happens to be on the spot taking video? It just seems that maybe Amaral inspired this conflict or even directly instigated it.
Federal Civil Rights Lawsuit Against San Diego City – 2016
Amaral filed a federal civil rights lawsuit for police brutality against San Diego City, due to his arrest at an anti-Trump protest on November 9, 2016. A large crowd protested Trump election in 2016 in Downtown San Diego. When they started setting fires, the police declared it an unlawful assembly. Amaral failed to disperse and was arrested. He claimed that he was injured during the in the arrest. The Case number and title is 3:17-cv-02409-L-LL, Amaral v. City of San Diego et al.
After about 3.5 years of litigation, the judge dismissed the case. According to court documents, Amaral spent over $10K in attorney fees and other court costs, which may be just a rough number.
Trotskyites March on Border Wall Rally – 2017
On December 9, 2017, Comrade Amaral marched at the head of a group of about 15 others on a rally for the border wall. Their intention appeared to be to disrupt the rally, which would be attended by Congressman Duncan Hunter.
They marched behind two banners for the International Socialist Organization, which according to the ISO Wikipedia page is an openly communist (Trotskyite). organization. Leon Trotsky, along with Lenin was, of course, one of main leaders of the Russian communist revolution in 1917.
This is Marco Amaral, berating and harassing the sheriff’s deputies. The banner behind him reads, “Ban the Wall”, “Sanctuary for All” and “International Socialist Organization”.
An image of the other ISO Banner follows, which displays the revolutionary clinched fist and the reads “International Socialist Organization”, “Unite and Fight”. The communists were urging the group to fight, then they blamed others for starting the fight and claimed to be the victims.
Ironically, after another communist teacher, Justin Akers Chacon of City College, sucker-punched a 17-year-old boy, a brawl did break out, Amaral and the other Trotskyites complained bitterly and blamed the Sheriff’s deputies for not protecting them. This was even though they are vehemently anti-police, their own banner called for a fight and one of the communists threw the first punch, striking an adolescent in the face.
One of Amaral’s associates, involved in this brawl, admitted at another event that he is a “communist”. He is the one wearing the red cap and white scarf at about 2:20 in the video below and goes by “Rafael Bautista”. Ironically, in real life he appears to be a real estate agent, a mortgage broker and a manager of a small landscaping business. He’s a capitalist in real life, but he appears to have a fantasy of being a communist revolutionary, which he plays as a role in his spare time. Well, a person has to eat, I guess, and it is difficult to make a living spouting communist rhetoric and preaching revolution.
There is a good-sized cadre of those in San Diego County. who identify as communist, anti-American revolutionaries. Amaral and Rafael Bautista are just two of this group of such radicals. They are part of this revolutionary scene.
Amaral has long been a leftist radical, at least since his student days. He was a political science major at University of California, Berkeley and an organizer of the Occupy Cal movement in 2011 and was an organizer of this event in the video below when 40 protesters were arrested by UC Berkeley police. This protest occurred on November 10, 2011. Comrade Amaral does not seem to be in this video, but he was an organizer and spokesman for the group.
See the links for more information. Amaral is cited as a spokesman in the articles linked below.
This is an article in Life Magazine from 1940 about the Nazi and communist influence in Mexico and their collaborators. One of the most important Nazi collaborators was Jose Vasconcelos, an important Mexican, educator, writer, philosopher and cultural figure. Vasconcelos was the father of the “La Raza” racial theory, which became a basic concept for the Chicano political movement in the United States. The original article is:
A Nazi Fifth Column and Communist Allies are Active in Mexico, Life magazine, June 10, 1940
The Denver City Council is considering Changing the name of “Columbus Park” to La Raza Park. “La Raza” is Spanish for “The Race”. It is a ethnic and racial concept developed by the most important pro-Nazi propagandist in Latin America in World War II. “La Raza” is one of the basic principles of the ideology of the militant Chicano political movement, which the name change is intended to honor.
Please write the Denver City Council Members and request that they not change the name, or if they must change the name, request that they use a name that is, at least, not obviously racist and is more inclusive than this Hispanic, mestizo, racial concept, which was invented by a Mexican Nazi. Their addresses are below.
In recent years, National Hispanic organizations have been backing away from using the term, “La Raza”, as well as other terms associated with the radical, political Chicano movement. The “National Council of La Raza” changed their name three years ago in July of 2017, dropping “La Raza” from their name. Now the organization is called “UnidosUS”.
They did not say so directly, but it seems this was due to the racialist name becoming an embarrassment for them and for the organization to be more inclusive. In this his article, they do write that the name change came after accusations started years ago about “La Raza” meaning “The Race” and accusations that the National Council of La Raza had a brown racist agenda.
Anyone with enough intelligence to be able to use a Spanish/English dictionary can learn that the word actually does mean “The Race”. In recent years, we have learned more about Vasconcelos’ bizarre racial theory, which explains why they call themselves La Raza / The Race.
The national Chicano student organization, MEChA (Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan) has also changed its name dropping the words “Chicano” and “Aztlan” to be more inclusive, they said.
Fans of the La Raza concept try to obfuscate the meaning, claiming it means “The People”, but it really does mean “The Race”, just as it sounds to English speakers. Spanish has two words that mean “The People”, that is “La Gente” and “El Pueblo” (as in people of a nation). If the term was really intended to mean “The People”, they would have used one of these two terms normally used for that purpose.
The origins of this term may not be understood by many, even among Hispanics, however, the “La Raza” concept – on which the Chicano political ideology is to a large extent based — is a Hispanic mestizo racial supremacy theory formulated by a very prominent Mexican politician, educator and philosopher, Jose Vasconcelos. Vasconcelos explained his concept in a book entitled, “La Raza Cosmica”, which is available via Amazon and other book retailers under the correctly-translated name of “The Cosmic Race“. He believed that the Hispanic, mixed race would evolve into the ultimate race. Vasconcelos was also an extreme anti-Semite, extremely anti-American and the most important paid, Nazi propagandist in Latin America at the start of WWII.
Already featured in the park is a model of an Aztec temple, designed to be suggestive of the Templo Mayor, the most important site for mass human sacrifice in the Aztec empire. Uncounted thousands of victims were sacrificed there, having their hearts cut out of their chests while still living. Their still-beating heart was offered the sun god, Huitzilopochtli, as the victim looked on, writhing in extreme agony and died. Parts of the victims were often eaten by the priests in ritualistic cannibalism.
If the goal is to celebrate Mexican heritage, a blood-soaked, Aztec, human-sacrificial temple is not generally featured in town squares in Mexico. Generally, the status symbol for a Mexican town is to have a more innocuous, French gazebo in the town square, not a memorial to Aztec human sacrifice.
To avoid making a mockery out of the wonderful city of Denver, request that they not change the name of the Park to “La Raza Park”.
There is nothing wrong with “Columbus Park”. The charges utopian fanatics are making against Columbus are extreme and propagandistic. However, if the name must be changed, they should make it something less polarizing and more inclusive, than “La Raza Park”, in order to not disgrace the City of Denver.
