The One, Two Punch: Punch Number Two

"Be wise as serpents, and innocent as doves."
Jesus (Matthew 10:16)

Have we Americans been had? We have been going about our everyday business, trusting our elected leaders to run our country. Have they been doing some things behind in secret, behind our backs?
If you have not done so, please read about Punch Number One.

What follows is a collection of information. I lay out a few things that I have learned about recently, things going on under our noses. Although I will begin with a broad overview, the information provided below will eventually lead to an exposé about what is happening in my own backyard of Northern Virginia. However, if you are from some other part of the country, please continue to read. This same war is likely being fought on an American battlefield near you.

Please track with me as I attempt to build as clear of a picture as I can:

I will begin by introducing an idea known as Aztlan. Technically, it is still only an idea, not yet a finished product. On June 27th of this year, I posted on this blog, a youtube movie clip titled The Nation of Aztlan. If you have not seen it, you will be shocked by what you see and hear. Here's a bit of text from a speech by Jose Angel Gutierrez, Professor, University of Texas, Arlington:

"...We have an aging, white America. They are not making babies. They are dying. It's a matter of time ..."

Here are some words of Art Torres, former Chairman, California Democratic Party:

"... people say to me on the Senate floor ... 'Why do you fight so hard for affirmative action programs?' And I tell my white colleagues, 'Because you're going to need them' ..."

Hal Netkin, a community activist in Los Angeles, penned the following two paragraphs which describe Aztlan quite effectively:

"The myth of Aztlan can best be explained by California's Santa Barbara School District's Chicano Studies textbook, "The Mexican American Heritage" by East Los Angeles high school teacher Carlos Jimenez. On page 84 there is a redrawn map of Mexico and the United States, showing Mexico with a full one-third more territory, all of it taken back from the United States. On page 107, it says "Latinos are now realizing that the power to control Aztlan may once again be in their hands."

Shown are the "repatriated" eight or nine states including Colorado, California, Arizona, Texas, Utah, New Mexico, Oregon and parts of Washington. According to the school text, Mexico is supposed to regain these territories as they rightly belong to the "mythical" homeland of Aztlan. On page 86, it says "...a free-trade agreement...promises...if Mexico is to allow the U.S. to invest in Mexico...then Mexico allowed to freely export...Mexican labor. Obviously this would mean a re-evaluation of the border between the two countries as we know it today." Jimenez's Aztlan myth is further amplified at MEChA club meetings held at Santa Barbara Public Schools."

Mike Austin is a Christian writer and teacher in Latin America. He deftly writes about Aztlan here.

In summary, Aztlan represents all of Mexico, and the American southwest from Texas to California. Believers in this mythical piece of real estate see it now as unconnected, but hope to one day reconnect it into one large country. They believe that this land is rightfully theirs, and that their uninvited presence in our country does not make them illegal because they see it as their homeland.

Next, please be patient with me as I provide a brief overview of Mexican history. I do this to demonstrate just how unstable the country south of our border truly is, and how a small band of revolutionaries are behind much of the illegal alien flood into our country in recent years.
Mexico won its independence from Spain in 1821, and in 1823, set up a new government. In 1845, the Republic of Texas became the 28th state in the U.S. War with Mexico ensued. In 1848 the U.S. prevailed and Utah, Nevada, California, New Mexico, and most of Colorado came under American control.

Despite its independence from Spain, and its initial attempt as a self-governing republic, Mexico has suffered a long history of political turmoil spawned by poverty.

Porfio Diaz seized power in 1876, and for the next thirty years ruled Mexico with an iron fist. Then, in 1910, Francisco Madero championed a revolt against the Diaz government but was quickly overthrown by General Victoriano Huerta.

But Huerta, too, was unpopular, and the revolution and turmoil continued. Two peasants named Pancho Villa and Emiliano Zapata raised armies and waged geurilla warfare on the Huerta government. Villa's armies fought in the north, and Zapata's armies fought in the south.

Huerta's government soon collapsed and Venustiano Carranza, a wealthy landowner and friend of Fransisco Madero, took control. Villa and Zapata's uprising was finally crushed in 1920.

After decades of struggle, many poverty stricken residents began to place their hopes in a resistance movement. In 1994, following the creation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), the resistance was reborn in Mexico's most southern state, Chiapas. Naming themselves after Emiliano Zapata, the Zapatista Army of National Liberation (Ejército Zapatista de Liberación Nacional, or EZLN) took control of several cities in Chiapas. Their website is in Spanish, and is currently under revision. I have made numerous attempts to find some real solid, verifiable information, but have come up with little. Here are some secondary sources to look at on your own:

And I am not real confident in the integrity of Wikipedia, but here is a link to their site.

The EZLN is led by a man who calls himself Subcommandante Marcos, known to have Marxist leanings. No one has seen Marcos' face. He covers it with a ski mask, as do many of his followers.

I provided some detail on the Zapitista Army (above) because of its local connection to Mexicanos Sin Fronteras (Mexicans Without Borders), a group with local influence here in Northern Virginia.

Mexicanos Sin Fronteras has an office in Washington, D.C., and as you will see from the pictures on their website, they have connections to the Zapatistas. Here is a Google translation of text from a page on their website:

"To be anti-capitalist anti-imperialist in the capital of the most terrorist country of world-wide history and not to question the commitments or challenges, to us would free the critics and outside the play. Our movement takes to the other campaign. From our campaign it has been yesterday against racism, the persecution and the discrimination of most unprotected across of the country. We recognize our obligations like migrants and our rights so pisoteados in, we think there that a glance to those of here is necessary being wanted to go for there and to those of there being wanted to return. We are thankful to the zapatismo by the lesson.

We appreciate the attention to our word and we authenticated our solidarity and our commitment to them with the mother country."

As you will see on header of the Mexicanos Sin Fronteras website, there is a link to a group called The Woodbridge Workers Committee (WWC). Now we are getting really close to home.

On their website we find these comments:

"Members of the Committee travel on a regular basis to various organizational meetings and cultural events in Virginia, Maryland, the District of Columbia, Delaware and Pennsylvania to help form coalitions and educate around immigrant issues. We speak regularly to area churches and community groups about the importance of showing solidarity with the new immigrants and about the difference between charity and solidarity work."

Just the two words "Workers Committee" do more than hint at leftist/Marxist ideology, which is clearly where these people are coming from. As you read the very first paragraph of this article, you will see a direct connection between the Zapatistas, Mexicanos Sin Fronteras, and the WWC. The second paragraph explains that the event described took place in Zapatista controlled territory in Mexico, and occured on New Years Eve/New Years Day 2006/2007.

I guess these innocent "Woodbridge workers" actually do more than travel in the states, huh?

In summation, "Punch Number Two" is the insidious civil war going on right beneath our noses, the war to reclaim American territory for Mexico. The war is bolstered by the idea of Aztlan, a country that does not exist but in the minds of millions of Latinos and their Marxist ideologue helpers in the United States.


Meanwhile, as many of us stand up to defend American sovereignty, our president and our Congress do nothing. Those of us working to restore our communities are slandered as racists, bigots, and latest "label du jour," xenophobes.

We Americans have been way too trusting of our leaders. Rather than taking ownership of our own country, we have become far too dependent upon Washington.

"Be wise as serpents, and innocent as doves."
