The new Democratic Star and his Reconquista Mother
H/T One Old Vet  – indefatigable as always  – for alerting me to Mother of Dem convention star Castro called Alamo defenders 'drunks,' 'crooks'  Fox News September 05 2012
This is about San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro 
CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The Hispanic Texas mayor whose keynote speech wowed the Democratic National Convention crowd Wednesday night draws political inspiration from his mother – who was a member of a radical civil rights movement ...
Maria del Rosario Castro, the mother of San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro, said in 2010 that she grew up being told the battle was “glorious,” only to learn the so-called heroes were really “a bunch of drunks and crooks and slaveholding imperialists who conquered land that didn’t belong to them.”
“But as a little girl I got the message -- we were losers,” she told The New York Times Magazine. “I can truly say that I hate that place and everything it stands for.” (VDARE.com emphasis)
Actually the battle and the whole liberation of Texas were glorious – if you are American. This was well discussed for us years ago in Lone Star Setting? 
Fox News deserves credit for this digging, which is a relief – Angry White Dude just posted an alarming and depressingly cogent piece IT’S GETTING WHERE I CANNOT WATCH FOX NEWS ANYMORE! 
I don’t know exactly when it happened but it did. Fox News started to slide to the left a while back…Why doesn’t Fox break any real news? Who is doing the heavy lifting of journalism these days? Conservative blogs!
Unfortunately close reading of the story betrays the tendency AWD has identified. The Alamo engagement - America’s Thermopylae  -was downplayed
The Alamo… was attacked in February 1836 by Mexican General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna. Though historical accounts vary, Texans, including famous frontiersman Davy Crockett, fought back for 13 days only to surrender, on March 6.
avoiding mention not only of the extreme odds involved but also that Santa Anna had all the survivors murdered. 
H/T also to a Nebraska reader who suggests the Drudge Report’s carrying yesterday evening Report: San Antonio Mayor Castro ‘Doesn’t Really Speak Spanish ‘Had to Hire Tutor ’ was the result of Steve Sailor’s Julian Castro In 2016! Making Bush & Obama Look As Qualified As The Duke Of Wellington  3 days earlier, which highlighted
"Early in his administration, Castro assigned his chief of staff, Robbie Greenblum—a Jewish lawyer from the border town of Laredo whose own Spanish is impeccable—to discreetly find him a tutor. Rosie Castro's son is now being taught Spanish by a woman named Marta Bronstein. Greenblum met her in shul."
Castro may not speak Spanish – but he speaks Treason Lobby .
