The truth about MECHA is spreading.
In my article last week, I linked to an exposé of the Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan by the New York City-based Jewish Task Force. Consequently [perhaps due to a flood of new hits from VDARE readers], the feature story on the JTF web site – "Bustamante The Nazi" –was reprised for another week "due to tremendous popular demand."
A VDARE.COM reader from Laguna Woods, California, read both articles and e-mailed me concerning the purported motto of MECHA as explained by JTF:
"Mecha's Nazi motto is: "For the [Hispanic] race, everything. For those outside the race, nothing."
[The JTF web site – "Bustamante The Nazi"]
The California reader writes:
"Juan, MEChA's reference to "la raza" is what they call the BRONZE race. I am a white Hispanic, and I am considered by them a "Gabacho" or "Gabacha" for female, a term borrowed from Spain for those who live at the foot of the Pyrenees Mountains. The Spaniards also used this word as a derisive term for the French during the Napoleonic occupation of Spain. The Mechistas use it for white Hispanics as well.
"Gringos" are mostly Anglos, Germans and even Italians. Mechistas are anti-white, even if they are Hispanics. They resent white Hispanics because they "robbed" them of their land! This is an extremely dangerous organization! May God help us if Bustamante gets in!"
So if the California reader is correct, it looks like European Spanish-speakers aren't welcome in the La Raza movimiento.
Someone had better explain this distinction to the Bush Administration.
While the former may be largely a marketing device, the fanaticism of the latter threatens California . . . and America.
