“Trump's father, Fred Trump, was arrested after a KKK riot in Queens, New York, in 1927.” (Newsweek, 1/15/18.)
“In 1927, Donald Trump’s Father was arrested after a Klan Riot in Queens.” Washington Post (2/29/16.)
(Turns out, the “KKK riot” was in fact a Memorial Day Parade in which a few Klan members—minus robes and hoods—participated. And Fred Trump was not among those, as clarified by the Washington Examiner.)
Nonetheless, it appears that the mainstream media regards the political associations of a U.S. president (or U.S. Presidential candidate’s) parent—however brief, tenuous, ancient or bogus-- of enormous import. No?
Fine. Then let’s apply the same standards to Democratic presidential candidate and Golden Boy Julian Castro and see if we might come up with something a bit more enduring, bonding, recent and factual.
“(Julian Castro’s mother) Rosie Castro is a woman with many talents and strong ideals. She's a well-known, local civil rights activist and was a founding member of La Raza Unida.” -Voices of San Antonio.
"Her vocal support for Angela Davis, then a member of the Communist Party USA, brought Rosie to the attention of the FBI.…. A new level of political activism started for Rosie Castro, manifested through her work with Partido Nacional de La Raza Unida, also known as La Raza Unida Party, which she joined when it formed in the early seventies.” -Texas Monthly
Don’t get me wrong, amigos. It’s not like the Southern Poverty Law Center (planet earth’s official arbiter, as we all know, on designating hate groups) lists the Chicano group La Raza as a “hate group.” Heaven forbid! No, for the SPLC it’s outfits like the American Family Association and WorldNetDaily that qualify as “hate groups.”
Instead, I came up with the designation for La Raza on my own, without the SPLC’s guidance, tutelage —or even their permission! If you can imagine such insolence! Let’s have a look at my reasons, and see if you agree:
First off, the very name “La Raza” translates into English as “The Race.” Can you imagine the uproar from such as the SPLC and Democrats if a Caucasian-led group named itself “The Race?”
“Better” still, among La Raza’s most revered idols are two full-blooded Caucasians who—historic leftist lore notwithstanding—were not exactly advocates of Flower-Power:
“VIVA CHE GUEVARA!” “Happy Birthday to Comandante Che Guevara!” are just two of the many tributes and accolades for the hate-filled, mass-murdering terrorist found on La Raza Unida’s Facebook page.
“HATRED is the central element of our struggle!… HATRED that is intransigent….HATRED so violent that it propels a human being beyond his natural limitations, making him a violent and cold- blooded killing machine…We reject any peaceful approach. Violence is inevitable. To establish Socialism RIVERS OF BLOOD MUST FLOW!….The victory of Socialism is well worth millions of atomic victims!”
“The U.S. is the great enemy of mankind! Against those hyenas there is no option but extermination….If the missiles had remained in Cuba we would have fired them against the heart of the U.S. including New York City!”
“My nostrils dilate while savoring the acrid odor of gunpowder and blood!…Crazy with fury I will stain my rifle red while slaughtering any surrendered enemy that falls in my hands! With the deaths of my enemies I prepare my being for the sacred fight and join the triumphant proletariat with a bestial howl!” (La Raza’s idol, Che Guevara.)
In brief, the mother of a man who presumes to lead the United States as president (and who “taught her son everything he knows about politics,” according to a media fluff piece) helped found a group whose revered idol is a communist, mass-murdering terrorist, whose lifelong object of burning hatred was the country her son presumes to lead as president! And whose lifelong craving was to nuke and otherwise exterminate the hyenas that populate the country her son presumes to lead as president!
All of this is glossed over by the same media that denounces President Trump because his father once found himself (unwittingly, it seems) in the company of the KKK!
Where’s Saturday Night Live, Monty Python, National Lampoon and Mad Magazine when you really need them?
In the historic annals of unrequited love few cases rival the affair by Chicanos with Che Guevara. They seem to plaster this lily white Argentinian racist’s mug on practically everything they paint to celebrate their Amerindian Aztec culture. Go figure.
Perhaps a word with some Bolivian Amerindians who actually experienced Che Guevara’s plans to Stalinize their culture would help. In 1967 these (overwhelmingly indigenous) Bolivians (with help from U.S. Green Berets) made short work of this (lily-white) Chicano hero. If a picture’s worth a thousand words than this one’s worth a million. Please note the obvious ethnic compositions of the gentlemen proudly and triumphantly holding their guns over their vanquished European would-be enslaver.
While training in Mexico for their “invasion” of Cuba, Ernesto Guevara’s former Cuban colleagues recall one quip by Che perhaps unknown by the folks at La Raza Unida: “These Mexicans are nothing but a rabble of illiterate Indians,” Che Guevara often snickered.
