Only in America could critics of a group called
"The Race"
be labeled
Such is the triumph of left-wing identity
chauvinists, whose aggressive activists and supine
abettors have succeeded in redefining all opposition as

Both Barack Obama and John McCain will

speak this week
in San Diego at the annual
conference of the

National Council of La Raza
, the Latino organization
whose name is Spanish for, yes, "The Race." Can
you imagine Obama and McCain paying homage to a

group of white people
who called themselves that? No
matter. The presidential candidates and the media have
legitimized "The Race" as a mainstream ethnic
lobbying group and marginalized its critics as
intolerant bigots. The unvarnished truth is that the
group is a radical ethnic nationalist outfit that
abuses your tax dollars
and milks PC politics to
undermine our sovereignty.

11. "The Race" joined the

American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee
in a
failed lawsuit attempt to prevent the feds from entering
immigration information into a key national crime
database—and to prevent

local police officers
from accessing the data.

10. "The Race"

the state of Oklahoma`s
tough immigration-enforcement-first laws
, which cut
off welfare to illegal aliens, put teeth in employer
sanctions and strengthened local-federal cooperation and
information sharing.

9. "The Race" joined other open-borders, anti-assimilationists
and sued to prevent

initiative, from

as an

"absolute disgrace."

adviser, said this:

unifying role of the English language

States. "The Race" also

Orwellian open-borders

and advised the Mexican government on how
to lobby for illegal alien amnesty while

avoiding the terms "illegal" and "amnesty."

5. "The Race" gives mainstream cover to
a poisonous subset of ideological satellites
, led by
Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan, or Chicano
Student Movement of Aztlan (MEChA).
The late GOP Rep. Charlie Norwood

rightly characterized the organization
as "a

radical racist group
… one of the most anti-American
groups in the country, which has

permeated U.S. campuses since the 1960s,
continues its push to carve a racist nation out of the
American West."

4. "The Race" is currently leading a

smear campaign
against staunch immigration
enforcement leaders and has called for TV and cable news
networks to keep immigration enforcement proponents off
the airwaves—in addition to pushing for Fairness
Doctrine policies to shut up their foes. The New York
reported that current "Race" president
Janet Murguia believes "hate speech" should
"not be tolerated, even if such censorship were a
violation of First Amendment rights."

3. "The Race" sponsors militant

ethnic nationalist charter schools
subsidized by
your public tax dollars (at least $8 million in federal
education grants). The schools include Aztlan Academy in
Tucson, Ariz., the Mexicayotl Academy in Nogales, Ariz.,
Academia Cesar Chavez Charter School in St. Paul, Minn.,

La Academia Semillas del Pueblo

Los Angeles
, whose

principal inveighed
: "We don`t want to drink from
a White water fountain, we have our own wells and our
natural reservoirs and our way of collecting rain in our
aqueducts. We don`t need a White water fountain …
ultimately the White way, the American way, the neo
liberal, capitalist way of life will eventually lead to
our own destruction."

2. "The Race" has perfected the art of the PC
shakedown at taxpayer expense, pushing relentlessly to
lower home loan standards for Hispanic borrowers
reaping millions in federal

"mortgage counseling"
seeking special
multimillion-dollar earmarks and partnering with

banks that do business with illegal aliens.

1. "The Race" thrives on
ethnic supremacy
—and the elite sheeple`s
unwillingness to call it what it is. As historian Victor
Davis Hanson

: "[The] organization`s very nomenclature
`The National Council of La Raza` is hate speech to the
core. Despite all the contortions of the group, Raza (as
its Latin cognate suggests) reflects the meaning of
`race` in Spanish, not `the people`—and that`s precisely
why we don`t hear of something like `The National
Council of the People,` which would not confer the buzz
notion of ethnic, racial and tribal chauvinism."

The fringe is the center. The center is the fringe.
Viva La Raza.
