“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!” – Samuel Adams

La Raza, the Mexican Terrorist Organization

Much has been in the news recently about La Raza, what a military intelligence acquaintance recently dubbed “a mestizo terrorist organization.” Republican congressman Charlie Norwood of Georgia’s ninth district has called La Raza a “radical…pro-illegal immigration lobbying organization that supports racist groups.”

What is La Raza? The National Council of La Raza (its full name) is a pro-mestizo advocacy organization. The title “La Raza” is Spanish for “the race,” and its underlying rational is to support the interests of the mestizo race (people who are mostly Amerindian blood with a little Spaniard blood mixed in – people mostly from Mexico, Central America, and neighboring areas).

La Raza is anti-European in the sense that it opposes European Americans (whites) and favors the interests of indigenous mestizos. La Raza is notorious for supporting causes like amnesty, illegal immigration, birthright citizenship, chain migration, attempting to censor white journalists (most famously, Lou Dobbs), and removing white authors from schools to be replaced by mestizo authors.

Unknown to many is the financial support La Raza receives from donors like Wal-Mart, Exxon Mobil, McDonalds, and hundreds of other corporations. In more civilized times, these donations would be considered treason. But many of these corporations support La Raza for two reasons: they have bought into the religion of political correctness, and they want cheap labor. (Subsequently, I have not set foot in a Wal-Mart for over six years because of their support for La Raza – not to mention the fact Wal-Mart imports most of its goods from China and practices crony (tax-payer subsidized) capitalism.)

Also known to many is the sort of radicals attracted to La Raza. Just look at the statements of pro-immigration activist Jorge Sanchez:

“Around the year 2040, whites will become a minority in the United States and, believe me, it will be payback time.”

Related in name to The National Council of La Raza is the political organization La Raza Unida Party (RUP), roughly translated as “the party of the [mestizo] race.” To gain a sense of its anti-Western flavor, read the quotes of its founder José Ángel Gutiérrez:

“We remain a hunted people. Now you think you have a destiny to fulfill in the land that historically has been ours for forty thousand years. And we’re a new Mestizo nation.”

“Our devil has pale skin and blue eyes…”

“We have got to eliminate the gringo, and what I mean by that is if the worst comes to the worst, we have got to kill him.”

We live in insane times. Only 30 years ago, La Raza would have been considered a treasonous organization, but now it’s praised by anti-occidental leftists like Barack Hussein Obama and Sonia Sotomayor, and anti-occidental neoconservatives like Lindsey Graham and Linda Chavez.

Paul Starobin recently wrote in the Wall Street Journal that the United States has outlived its usefulness and it’s now high time to break up into smaller countries. Perhaps he’s right. Although some areas would be lost to the Third World, the remaining smaller pro-Western republics would be more immune to the lobbying efforts of terrorist organizations like La Raza.

  1. Stop with the misinformation and lies. Here's the information on the correct translation of La Raza (Full Source: http://www.nclr.org/section/translation/ ):

    Many people incorrectly translate our name, “La Raza,” as “the race.” While it is true that one meaning of “raza” in Spanish is indeed “race,” in Spanish, as in English and any other language, words can and do have multiple meanings. As noted in several online dictionaries, “La Raza” means “the people” or “the community.” Translating our name as “the race” is not only inaccurate, it is factually incorrect. “Hispanic” is an ethnicity, not a race. As anyone who has ever met a Dominican American, Mexican American, or Spanish American can attest, Hispanics can be and are members of any and all races.

    The term “La Raza” has its origins in early 20th century Latin American literature and translates into English most closely as “the people” or, according to some scholars, as “the Hispanic people of the New World.” The term was coined by Mexican scholar José Vasconcelos to reflect the fact that the people of Latin America are a mixture of many of the world’s races, cultures, and religions. Mistranslating “La Raza” to mean “the race” implies that it is a term meant to exclude others. In fact, the full term coined by Vasconcelos, “La Raza Cósmica,” meaning the “cosmic people,” was developed to reflect not purity but the mixture inherent in the Hispanic people. This is an inclusive concept, meaning that Hispanics share with all other peoples of the world a common heritage and destiny.

    And this is not just NCLR’s interpretation. According to the American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, “La Raza” means:

    “…Mexicans or Mexican Americans considered as a group, sometimes extending to all Spanish-speaking people of the Americas.”

    Furthermore, MSNBC’s online Spanish-English website, Encarta, translates the term this way:

    “Hispanic Spanish-speakers in the Americas: Mexicans, Mexican Americans, or Spanish-speaking people of the Americas, considered as a group.”

    The Free Dictionary, available online, similarly finds that the term “La Raza”:

    “…embodies the notion that traditional, exclusive concepts of race and nationality can be transcended in the name of humanity’s common destiny.”

  2. Whether La Raza is translated this way or that is not really pertinent except as it is used in practice by such men as Jose Angel Gutierrez, professor, University of Texas, Arlington; founder of La Raza Unida political party, who famously said “We have an aging white America. . . . They are dying. . . . They are ******** in their pants with fear! I love it!” “We have got to eliminate the gringo, and what I mean by that is if the worst comes to the worst, we have got to kill him.”

    It is clear that, to many Hispanics, La Raza implies a group, or race of people, that is superior to others. This is generally called racism and is foundational to La Raza as a group and to those who endorse their goals.

  3. So you are basing all your arguments on a minority fringe political party that even most Hispanics reject? Gee, how thoughtful of you.

  4. So you unequivically reject La Raza Unida and Gutierrez? And NCLR does the same? I wonder why he has not been kicked out of La Raza and why NCLR gave Gutierrez the “Chicano Hero Award” in 1994, long after his hateful and racist comments?

    La Raza is a hate-filled, racist and terrorist organization and anyone associtaed with them is presumed to hold the same sentiments.

    Incidentally, sar123, I will give you credit for actually writing both sentences of your last comment. Your first comment was a complete copy and paste job and just shows your lack of intelligent thought and your dishonesty.

  5. I have been unable to find reliable and verifiable information on Gutierrez’s supposed award. Do you have any reliable and verifiable source about this award, besides Wikipedia?

    It strikes me as odd that the National Council of La Raza (NCLR) would give an award with Chicano in it’s title. Chicano, during the time NCLR was formed, was a racial slur [Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicano#Term_of_derision ].

    Just because NCLR and La Raza Unida (LRU) share part of their name doesn’t mean they are one and the same. Just because the National Rifle Association and the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence both share weapon names in their respective association names doesn’t mean they support each other.

    Incidentally, I posted the NCLR full text and link (as you can see in the original post) because it’s the best definition and explanation on La Raza, to which I have nothing to add. I also posted it to counter the ignorance that fills Ms. Miller’s column.

    I wish I could give you credit for your writing, but you are just regurgitating the talking point of extremists without any semblance of research and connecting organizations just because you want to see them joined.

  6. There is an apparent glitch in the Disqus system. I received the following from sar123 in an e-mail and decided to post it along with my response.

    My reply:
    You are either lazy, inept or a liar, sar123. Guterriez's “Chicano Hero Award” is cited at dozens of web sites, many of them intended for a Hispanic audience including this one:
    http://www.latinoteca.com/app-home/app-informat
    At the same site it says
    “During the mid-1960s through the Chicano Movement and to the present time, Dr. Gutiérrez was lead organizer, founder, and co-founder of several organizations such as the Mexican American Youth Organization (MAYO), Mexican American Unity Council (MAUC), Ciudadanos Unidos, Obreros Unidos Independientes, La Raza Unida Party…”
    Apparently, “Chicano” is not considered a pejorative by most Hispanics, then or now, as your own wikipedia link confirms.

    Guterriez is still active in La Raza and the organization has yet to repudiate his racist comments. I believe that National Council of La Raza and its leaders like Jose Guterriez are racist, supremacist and terrorist in their beliefs and actions and a menace to the freedom and security of the United States of America. Americans need to be informed of just what these radicals have in mind for us and that is what Ms.Miller has done in this piece.

    As I have done in this response, word-for-word quotes from other sources should be properly identified with quotation marks and the source. You know that, but chose to misrepresent the comment as your own–a sure sign of a weak or lazy mind and a willingness to take for yourself what belongs to others.

  7. Eh, it's been glitchy for me all day. I had to retype that same reply about 3 times. It took me a while to actually get it to post.

    On Gutierrez's supposed award: That's precisely why I'm doubting the award. All mentions of a Chicano Hero Award are tied to Gutierrez. The way it's named suggest that every year the NCLR gives out this award. There's no Chicano Hero Award for 1993, nor 1995, nor 1970, nor 2004 (these years I actually searched for), nor a list of recipients. If the award was real, there has to be something else than his biography to back it up. Again, do you have any reliable and verifiable information on this award?

    The term Chicano is not considered *now*, but originally it was very insulting. This wasn't something I was aware until recently.

    Also, on *which* organization is Gutierrez still on? As I said, referring to the La Raza organization is like referring to the Gun association: it's not clear enough to be precise, and it only serves muddles the discussion.

    On my original post, I started with the following (The following is a quote from the webpage [ http://www.dakotavoice.com/2009/08/la-raza-the-... ], written by an anonymous person named sar123 on August 7, 2009): “Here's the information on the correct translation of La Raza (Full Source: http://www.nclr.org/section/translation/ )”. I am sorry that wasn't clear enough that it was a quote. I also included the quote because most people wouldn't have followed the link, a reality I am sadly aware.

  8. Check the comment below. It was the only way I could find to actually get it posted using the Disqus System.

  9. BTW, is there an archive of Ms. Miller's previous work? Or is her CV/biography only?

  10. This is her first submission.

  11. Ok, fair enough.

  12. The term “Latin” is derived from Europe, so when I hear Latinos criticizing Europe, I think it's funny since they are of European descent. The Aztec and Mayan influence is so diluted by now, they speak something more reminiscent of Spain than anything else. They lost to the Europeans before, and will again.
