MEChA-the Mexican Nazi Movement

By: Sher Zieve

MEChA (“Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan” or Chicano Students Movement of Aztlan) is neither a fraternity nor a “good-natured and altruistic college campus organization”. Rather, it is the Hispanic version of the Nazis, Ku Klux Klan or Islamic Jihad-take your pick or mix ‘n match.

MEChA’s news organ La Voz de Aztlan (“the voice of Aztlan”) regularly and consistently prints opinions and “news” stories that vilify Israel and Jews, in general. Amongst others, one of its staff writers-Ernesto Cienfuegos-has written numerous anti-Semitic articles including but, not limited to “Jews against Islam: The War of Cartoons”, “Jewish Maquiladora Owners Scam Tijuana Workers”, “The Kosher Nostra Scam on the American Consumer”, “Zionist Plot to take over Mexican Presidency” and “Jewish Rabbi gives three infants Herpes”. WHEW! The site also blasts Los Angeles KFI talk-show host Bill Handel in its statement: “The radio show is hosted by a Jew named Bill Handel who has a history of making obscene and racist remarks against non-Jewish ethnic, racial and religious groups including Mexicans.” Another of its “news” stories includes “Anti-Mexican Jewish Bigot Identified” in which it states: “The racist Jew who filmed a video in which he humiliates a group of Mexican workers (Jornaleros) has been identified. La Voz de Aztlan has received information on the hateful Jew who produced the shameful video. This is more proof that these sinister, malevolent, malicious and nefarious people will stop at nothing.” The site also firmly aligns itself with Islam. If one is looking for good old-fashioned no-holds-barred “hate speech against Jews”, La Voz de Aztlan is the site to visit.

But, the Aztlan Movement is much more than just a small and inconsequential “hate-Jew movement”-much more, indeed. On its site, La Voz announced its participation in the 2004 “Forum on Binational Thought” which was held in Mexico City. The speaker from the Aztlan Movement was named as no other than Henry Cisneros! La Voz writes: “From Aztlan, Henry Cisneros will deliver the speech “Future of the relationship between Mexican and Mexican-Americans”. Cisneros was Bill Clinton’s Secretary of Housing and Urban Development and is presently a John Kerry campaign aide within the Mexican-American community.” And if that doesn’t curl your hair, current California Lieutenant Governor Cruz Bustamante and Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa are “former” MEChA members. But, one has to wonder if the “former” designation is accurate.

Note: This definitely takes MEChA and the Aztlan Movement out of the “fringe” category and places it into the mainstream Hispanic Democrat camp. And it is patently chilling.

Most certainly, MEChA’s Aztlan Movement does not represent the majority of Hispanics in the Unites States. The mere fact that lawmakers in the US are members (or claim to be “former” members) should at least give all US citizens pause-if not creating a call to action. This hate-filled organization is growing, folks-and so is its influence on other US lawmakers. Bear in mind, MEChA’s Aztlan Movement is also the organization that is working for the Reconquista (“reconquest”) of the US’ Southwestern states, which include California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. And with increasing backing from US “leaders”, including a US Senate that appears to be feckless in passing any Immigration Reform bill that has real teeth and viability, they just might affect it. However, this time the New Nazi movement won’t have a German accent. Comprende usted?
