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.
These are the public comments of the communists, Raza Ultra Nationalists, anarchists and other, various types of far-leftists at the Human Relations Commission meeting in Chula Vista on January 23, 2020, where removal of the Columbus statue was discussed. To see related posts, go to this link.
There was no one in opposition to them at this meeting. There was no opposition probably in large part, because some of these people are thugs, who will slander and threaten anyone, who opposes them. The object of such propaganda is to create polarization and to undermine the confidence of people in the traditional beliefs of the current society, in order ultimately to create a social revolution or a “fundamental transformation”, as Obama called it.
The commission in a second meeting approved a resolution to be submitted to the City Council for a vote to destroy the Columbus statue in Discovery Park. The recording is over an hour long, but useful to hear as an example of how they employ anti-western propaganda and how dominate they are at such meetings in Chula Vista.
The statue has been vandalized multiple times. Destroying the statue will reward this criminal behavior and encourage more.
Self-described communist, Rafael Bautista, and friends crash a media conference, held by citizens supporting the Columbus monument in Discovery Park in Chula Vista, Ca. This stature has been vandalized at least three times. Now a group of leftist extremists are trying to have the statue removed and destroyed. Columbus was accused of genocide and curiously identified as the person who started domestic violence. Apparently, indigenous peoples had perfectly harmonious marriages before Columbus came and ruined the matrimonial bliss.
The commies say they want to take down all monuments to the early Spanish explorers in San Diego, County, including the Balboa statue on Point Loma, which has long been a symbol of San Diego.
Rafael Barajas, under the pen name of El Fisgon, wrote a book about the Nazi roots of PAN, the right-wing political party in Mexico. In this video, Barajas talks about the pro-Nazism of Jose Vasconcelos, who was an agent of the Nazis and the leading propagandist for the Nazis in Mexico, as well as all of Latin America. Vasconcelos developed the “La Raza” supremacist concept in the 1920’s and published his book about it “La Raza Cosmica” in 1925. The Nazi-like, mestizo racial theories and Anti-Americanism of Vasconcelos had a major influence on the development of the militant, Chicano political movement in the US of the 1960’s.
After WWII, the Nazis and extreme right were discredited among most people. For that reason the fascist-like, extreme right-wing, Mexican-American followers of these mestizo racial supremacist theories allied themselves with the far left, revolutionary Marxists, communists and leftist anarchists.
Benjamin Prado of Union del Barrio leads a call for removal of the Columbus statue in Discovery Park in Chula Vista. A letter was sent to the City Council and the council is considering the removal of the statue, which has been repeatedly vandalized by like-minded, anti-European, anti-white extremists. They also want to formally change the Columbus Day holiday to “Indigenous Day”. To see related posts, go to this link.
Union del Barrio is a radical Chicano / La Raza organization, associated with our extremist Chicano Park in San Diego. Chicano political ideology is not well defined and different groups have somewhat different ideologies. The ideology of Union del Barrio is a hybrid, of revolutionary Marxism and mestizo-racial identity.
The historical evidence that Columbus committed atrocities, depends mainly on the writings of Bartholomew de las Casas. However, de las Casas had political reasons to exaggerate what Columbus supposedly did. He was a church leader and was trying to persuade the King of Spain to give him control over the natives in the region. As we know from, the treatment of the enslaved natives on church missions at that time, was also far from being perfectly humane.
The flag of the Union del Barrio, which flies next to Prado in the video above, has an image of an Aztec eagle warrior (wearing an eagle helmet) on a field of red. It is extremely ironic, considering Prado’s complaints, because the Aztecs practiced mass human sacrifice and ritual cannibalism, ripping the still beating hearts from their victims, while they were still alive. The Aztecs enslaved and slaughtered many times more native peoples than Columbus — probably falsely — is accused of doing. Yet, Prado flies an Aztec flag next to him with pride, while complaining vehemently that memorializing Columbus is absolutely intolerable.
Union del Barrio is virulently anti white Anglo-American. The “La Raza” mestizo racial theory, which Benjamin Prado mentions at the end of his speech is based on the mestizo racial supremacy theory of Jose Vasconcelos, who developed the “La Raza” concept in his book, “La Raza Cosmica” (1925).
Vasconcelos was a Mexican philosopher, educator and revolutionary, who was famous in all of Latin America. He is called the father of the Mexican muralist movement and also the father of the indigenous movement. However, he was the most important Nazi propagandist in Latin America, publishing the pro-Nazi magazine, El Timon (The Rudder) in the late 1930’s and early 1940’s until the Mexican Government banned the publication in 1942 a few months after the Pearl Harbor attack and declaration of war by the U.S. These racial concepts of “La Raza” developed by Jose Vasconcelos are the major source of the racial theories of the radical Chicano political movement. The Nazis tried to exploit the Nazi-like racial theories of Vasconcelos to gain influence in Latin America in the time leading up to World War II.
The term “La Raza” also has a popular usage in Mexico that may be considered low-class, but relatively innocuous. However that is not how it is being used by overtly racialist groups like Union del Barrio. Here are a couple of references for Vasconcelos and his pro-Nazism, translated from the original Spanish.
Below is a video of another racialist, anti-white event that Union del Barrio organized. You can see their eagle warrior flag on the stage. The speaker also thanks Union del Barrio (for organizing the racist event) at the end of her racial diatribe against white people. Ironically, the speaker is herself a self-hating, white person who is kowtowing to brown and black racial supremacist groups.
Union del Barrio was also one of the main organizers of this event in Chicano Park, shown in the next video. A small group of about 6-8 individuals planned to have lunch and a private viewing of the political, often anti-American and racialist murals at the park. Because they were critics of Chicano extremism, Union del Barrio and allied groups organized and incited a mob of about 500 persons to deny them access to the park under the threat of serious bodily injury. At the end of this video you see a couple of Union del Barrio organizers in red shirts with the UdB’s eagle-warrior logo directing the mob. This event was not organized a gathering of white supremacists, but simply a peaceful, ad hoc gathering of critics of the militant “La Raza” mestizo racial ideology represented in many of the murals at this park.
