No Way José

With at least 11 million false-documented illegals in the United States – the real number is doubtless twice that – it’s clear that Mexican nationals feel entitled to defy U.S. immigration law. At the same time, the Pueblo Sin Fronteras crowd, denounces the United States as exploitive and slams the American founders as a pack of white supremacists. That calls for a look at José Vasconcelos (1882-1959), a major figure in Mexican history and influential to this day. 

Vasconcelos served as rector of the National University of Mexico, and president Alvaro Obregon appointed him as minister of public education from 1921-24. The next year he authored The Cosmic Race, an essay contending that “the mixed race that inhabits the Ibero-American continent,” is destined to become “the first synthetic race of the earth,” surpassing the “four racial trunks: the Black, the Indian, the Mongol, and the White.” 

“The basis of white civilization is fuel,” explains the erudite Vasconcelos, who ran for president of Mexico in 1929. “It served as a protection against the long winters. Then, it was discovered that its power could be used not only for warmth, but also for work; and the motor was born.” On the other hand, “the mestizo, the Indian, and even the Black are superior to the White in a countless number of properly spiritual capacities.”

According to Vasconcellos, who was also an attorney, “no race returns. Each one states its mission, accomplishes it, and passes away.” Therefore, “it will be seen immediately that we belong to tomorrow, while the Anglo-Saxons are gradually becoming more a part of yesterday.” 

The future belongs to “the Hispanic race,” and “only the Iberian part of the continent possesses the spiritual factors, the race, and the territory necessary for the great enterprise of initiating the new universal era of Humanity.” As the other races pass into history, Vasconcelos hails, “the creation of a new race,” and “only the Iberian part of the continent possesses the spiritual factors, the race, and the territory necessary” to create “the final race, the cosmic race.” 

And so on, a rather vile gazpacho of racism and ignorance from Mexico’s minister of public education from 1921-24, who went on to run for president.  So there’s a “final solution” aspect to his thought, which Mexican-American Communists like Bert Corona quickly spotted. 

As Corona told biographer Mario Garcia in Memoirs of Chicano History, Vasconcelos’ racial theory was “close to the kind of German racial superiority theory supported by Hitler. In fact, Vasconcelos himself became a fascist. Many Chicanos considered Vasconcelos and his views of the ‘cosmic race’ as an inspiration. But I recall Vasconcelos as a fascist.” As for the notion that Latinos, Mexicanos or Chicanos are superior to everyone else, Corona explained, “I couldn’t accept all this. We’re not a superior race.”

Corona, who has a charter school named after him, is right about that, but Vasconcelos’ cosmic-race theory remains the inspiration for groups such as the National Council of La Raza and MEChA, the Movimiento Estudiantil Chicanx de Aztlán, the lost raza homeland that leftists created in the sixties. California attorney general Xavier Becerra, the sanctuary state enforcer once on Hillary Clinton’s short list as a running mate, is a proud MEChA alum. 

The cosmic-race theory fuels the sense of entitlement that sends caravans to the border, demanding entry to the United States and benefits from American taxpayers. After all, the incoming dreamers are only fulfilling their destiny by displacing the evil white “Yankees.” As Vasconcelos wrote, after Spain conquered America, “the Napoleonic stupidity gave Louisiana away to the Englishmen from this side of the ocean, to the Yankees.”

Our age, says the Cosmic Race author, isa conflict of Latinism against Anglo-Saxonism,” and the anglos are destined to disappear. Vasconcelos’ spiritual followers are working  hard on the replacement process. When California senate boss Kevin de Leon appointed false-documented Mexican national Lizbeth Mateo to the California Student Opportunity and Access Program Project Grant Advisory Committee, he said the dreamers were “in many ways more American” than those who want illegals deported. 

In other words, they are better people, and more deserving than those actual U.S. citizens who seek to uphold the rule of law and respect U.S. sovereignty. Vasconcelos is also in the house when California politicians protect violent criminals from federal officials. After all, even the worst criminal illegals are superior to those inferior Yankee anglos, who are destined to disappear. 

As Bert Corona said, no way José. Latinos, Mexicans and Chicanos are not a superior race, even if leftist Democrats think so. All parties would do well to ignore the fascist Vasconcelos and take up a more worthy cause.

Since the 1920s, Mexico has been dominated by the Partido Revolucionario Institucional (PRI), a reactionary kleptocracy, prone to violence against protesting students, that prefers to export problems to the United States. True dreamers should stay home and work for a more democratic Mexico that upholds human rights, respects international borders, and allows the entrepreneurial energy of the people to flourish.

Just How Crazy Can Some Liberals Get?

One wonders how much trouble we’re going to get into, letting liberals raise children.

On Australian TV a few days ago, “relationship expert” Deanne Carson—she comes complete with pink hair—exhorted parents to “set up a culture of consent in the home” by making sure to get the baby’s consent before changing his diaper. [YouTube Video]

Just because she’s crazy doesn’t mean she honestly doesn’t know a three-month-old infant can’t say, “Sure, Mom, I’d kind of like a clean diaper!” What she wants you to do is to read the baby’s body language. Then you’ll know you’ve got consent to remove the dirty diaper. And those who criticize her, she warns, are “negating the voices of those brave survivors of abuse.” Just because she has pink hair doesn’t mean she can’t take herself very seriously indeed.

This opens up the prospect of a whole new world of disastrous child-rearing. As the baby grows into a toddler, and so on, his consent will be required for more and more parental actions. Sweetums, can I put you to bed now? No, I wanna watch TV all night. Junior, is it okay for me to serve you vegetables with your supper? Vegetables? No way! I want cake! Precious, I need your consent to send you off to school. School, schmool, I’m stayin’ home with my video games! Like, can you even imagine the character development of such a child? It’s probably the best way yet discovered to create a monster.

But if you think that’s as loopy as it gets, you haven’t seen the special Mother’s Day ad put out by America’s most reliable source of far-left loopiness: Democrats. And you thought they’d never dream up a way to politicize Mother’s Day. [YouTube Video]

Here we have an all-American mom wistfully wondering where she went wrong. It seems her son started going bad in middle school, robbing “less fortunate” kids. She has kept a framed picture of him assaulting some poor kid at school. Somehow I can’t imagine my mother displaying such a picture on the bookshelf in the living room.

Well, she sent him off to college, because every ninny goes to college, and—wouldn’t you know it?—college turns him pro-life! In what galaxy far, far away is the college that does that? She’s got a picture of Junior terrorizing a defenseless pregnant woman by brandishing a sign that says “Baby Killer,” it looks like he’s about to clout her over the head with it. Why did Mom save that picture? But her crowning disappointment came when she got an eyeful of his “college buddies,” neo-Nazis parading around with torches. She keeps that picture, too. I wonder what her family photo album looks like.

Her closing remark, delivered to the audience: “This Mother’s Day, talk to your children about the GOP. I wish I had.” And then she downs a swig of vodka, which does shed some light on her mind-set.

Believe it or not, there are a few Democrats out there who think this ad might backfire on them, I guess by letting normal people know how much Dems hate them. That’s something they might do better to conceal, although these days they seem to be taking less and less trouble to do that. There’s not much fun in being a liberal fat-head if you have to conceal your contempt for the human race.

What is it about family that leftists find so off-putting? Is it just because family, church, and voluntary associations compete with the state for the individual’s allegiance and affections? Do they truly believe that everyone who’s not a Democrat must be a Nazi?

Yeah, probably.

These are the people who want to rule our country: who want ever-increasing powers to interfere in our lives, because they think they’re wiser and better than the rest of us. Really, it’s for our own good, we’ll thank them for it later. You bet.

We must never again allow them to gain power in America. And we must strip them of the power that they have already.

Gun Violence Restraining Order

Ft Collins, CO –-(Ammoland.com)- “… if it saves just one life”

In Colorado, the recently-introduced “Extreme Risk Protection Act” is currently being debated in Denver.

This legislation will empower any judge, on the flimsiest of pretexts, to order the indefinite forcible seizure of every one of an individual citizen’s guns, when the judge decides the citizen in question (having never even met him, and in the absence of any expert testimony) might represent a “significant risk to himself or others.”

The vagueness of the bill’s language (always a leftist trademark) is of great concern.

Anyone, even someone you don’t know and who lacks the slightest credentials to make judgments about your, nor anyone’s, mental health, can arbitrarily decide that you are “about to snap!”

His secret, uncorroborated, non-expert testimony before a judge (and it isn’t even sworn testimony, just his word), and your Second Amendments Rights are cancelled, maybe forever.

An innocent citizen, who has made no crime (nor has even been accused of a crime) has his legally-owned guns precipitously ripped from his hands, without warning, on the basis of secret, non-expert, unsworn “testimony” of a single individual.

Prior to your guns be forcibly seized, there is no opportunity for you to challenge “testimony” of the one making the complaint, nor even to know whom his is! Your guns are forcibly confiscated for at least six months, maybe longer at the whim of the judge. It’s all such an “emergency,” you know. There is no time for any pesky “due process.”

There is an ambiguously-worded “appeal-process,” after the fact, of course.

After thousands in legal fees, endless “appearances,” and interminable delays (six months at least), your guns may be returned, but not before you’ve somehow managed to “prove” you’re not crazy, however that is done.

At your own expense, you have to “appeal” to the court in order to get your guns back and your rights restored. When you don’t take the initiative to appeal, your guns are never returned.

In the interim, you’re completely defenseless. You cannot legally buy, nor borrow, a gun of any kind. When you’re subsequently murdered by a violent criminal against whom you cannot defend yourself, apparently that is of no concern. Yours is not the “just one life” they apparently care about.

And, there is no specification for where, nor by whom, your guns are stored. You never get to know. If they are ever returned to you, they may be ruinously marred, encrusted with rust, and essentially ruined. There is no provision for you to be compensated for damage.

This is a typical vaguely-worded, invariably leftist, anti-gun bill that is invariably stampeded through the legislative process (another leftist trademark), so that embarrassing questions are never asked, and no one ever reads inconvenient details.

Leftists hate details, almost as much as they hate armed citizens.
