Today we discussed the nomination of Judge Sonia Sotomayor. We have a deep concern over her LIFETIME appointment to the Supreme Court due to her anti-gun views and her membership to the National Council of La Raza.
In the first hour of Come and Take It Radio, we discussed a piece titled The Truth About La Raza, found on freerepublic.com. That article can be found here - http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2259903/posts
Key pieces from this article include:
Behind the respectable front of the National Council of La Raza lies the real agenda of the La Raza movement, the agenda that led to those thousands of illegal immigrants in the streets of American cities, waving Mexican flags, brazenly defying our laws, and demanding concessions.
Key among the secondary organizations is the radical racist group Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan, or Chicano Student Movement of Aztlan (MEChA), one of the most anti-American groups in the country, which has permeated U.S. campuses since the 1960s, and continues its push to carve a racist nation out of the American West.
This is totally opposed by MEChA for the hordes of illegal immigrants pouring across our borders, to whom they say:
"Chicano is our identity; it defines who we are as people. It rejects the notion that we...should assimilate into the Anglo-American melting pot...Aztlan was the legendary homeland of the Aztecas ... It became synonymous with the vast territories of the Southwest, brutally stolen from a Mexican people marginalized and betrayed by the hostile custodians of the Manifest Destiny." (Statement on University of Oregon MEChA Website, Jan. 3, 2006)
MEChA isn't at all shy about their goals, or their views of other races. Their founding principles are contained in these words in "El Plan Espiritual de Aztlan" (The Spiritual Plan for Aztlan):
"In the spirit of a new people that is conscious not only of its proud historical heritage but also of the brutal gringo invasion of our territories, we, the Chicano inhabitants and civilizers of the northern land of Aztlan from whence came our forefathers, reclaiming the land of their birth and consecrating the determination of our people of the sun, declare that the call of our blood is our power, our responsibility, and our inevitable destiny. ... Aztlan belongs to those who plant the seeds, water the fields, and gather the crops and not to the foreign Europeans. ... We are a bronze people with a bronze culture. Before the world, before all of North America, before all our brothers in the bronze continent, we are a nation, we are a union of free pueblos, we are Aztlan. For La Raza todo. Fuera de La Raza nada."
That closing two-sentence motto is chilling to everyone who values equal rights for all. It says: "For The Race everything. Outside The Race, nothing."
MEChA and the La Raza movement teach that Colorado, California, Arizona, Texas, Utah, New Mexico, Oregon and parts of Washington State make up an area known as "Aztlan" -- a fictional ancestral homeland of the Aztecs before Europeans arrived in North America. As such, it belongs to the followers of MEChA. These are all areas America should surrender to "La Raza" once enough immigrants, legal or illegal, enter to claim a majority, as in Los Angeles. The current borders of the United States will simply be extinguished.
This plan is what is referred to as the "Reconquista" or reconquest, of the Western U.S.
Here is another link that gives a great background on what MEChA, Aztlan, and RAZA are and it can be found here - http://www.mayorno.com/WhoIsMecha.html
We also talked about the Plan of San Diego, where you can find more information about that on the Handbook of Texas Online - http://www.tshaonline.org/handbook/online/articles/PP/ngp4.html
We also detailed the Native American Tribes of Texas, California, and many other states that are listed in this Reconquista plan. Funny, there were no Aztec tribes in any of these states. Those tribes can be found here - http://native-languages.org/texas
In Hour 2, we moved on to Judge Sotomayor's Second Amendment views.
We discussed the article 'Sotomayor's Gun Control Positions Could Prompt Conservative Backlash' found here - http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2009/05/28/sotomayors-gun-control-positions-prompt-conservative-backlash/
We also discussed Kurt Nimmos article 'Sotomayor on the Supreme Court: A Gun-grabber’s Dream Come True' which can be found here - http://community.kdvr.com/_Sotomayor-on-the-Supreme-Court-A-Gun-grabbers-Dream-Come-True/BLOG/294174/96399.html
AND FOR SOME GOOD NEWS!

Proposal Stopping Confiscation Of Guns Now Law (Tennessee) (AP) NASHVILLE, Tenn. -
A person who legally possesses a gun would not have it seized during periods of martial rule under a proposal that has been signed into law by the governor. The measure was signed by Gov. Phil Bredesen on Thursday and takes effect immediately. Sponsors say martial rule is the same as martial law at the federal level. They say the law is necessary after law enforcement in New Orleans went door to door seizing weapons in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Republican Sen. Jack Johnson of Brentwood, one of the sponsors, has said he doesn't expect such behavior in Tennessee, but believes legislation should be in place just in case.
