Presidential Aide Tight With “La Raza”

JULY 06, 2006

The president’s top advisor will be a keynote speaker at the annual conference of a renowned extremist Mexican group that organized many of this year’s pro-illegal immigration marches across the country.

Karl Rove will take the podium at next week’s annual National Council of La Raza conference in Los Angeles. He will be joined by the likes of Jesse Jackson, Bill Clinton and L.A.’s self-professed “Chicano” mayor, Antonio Villaraigosa.

The National Council of La Raza describes itself as the largest national Hispanic civil rights and advocacy organization in the United States, but the reality is that its so-called La Raza movement is a radical one that preaches the return of the American Southwest to Mexico because in Chicano folklore California, Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico and parts of Colorado and Texas are in fact Aztlan.

This takeover plan is referred to as the “reconquista” of the Western U.S. and it features ethnic cleansing of Americans, Europeans, Africans and Asians once the area is taken back and converted to Aztlan.

While this may all sound a bit crazy, this organization is quite powerful and annually receives millions of dollars in federal grants. Its leaders also managed to get included in congressional hearings regarding immigration. Last year alone, the National Council of La Raza received $15.2 million in federal grants and an anonymous senator gave the group an extra $4 million in earmarked American taxpayer money.

La Raza’s annual conferences are attended by thousands of business owners, government officials and politicians who want to score points with Hispanics. Past “distinguished” speakers include Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, Bill Clinton’s scandal-plagued Housing Secretary Henry Cisneros and Attorney General Janet Reno.
