Many claim that any anti-Trump violence is a justifiable reaction to Trump’s allegedly “racist” comments. This is rendered absurd when one ponders the following comments by Mexican supremacists:
We’re coming back to the era of the ugly American. The gringo was hated all around the world, and this guy [Trump] pretty soon he got the title. He is the ugly American, he is the hated gringo, because he’s attacking all of us, he’s offending all of us. Imagine, I mean that could take us to a war. Not to a trade war….Don”t play around with us, we can jump walls, we can swim rivers, and we can defend ourselves.
“Former Mexican President Vicente Fox
Go back to the Plymouth Rock, Pilgrims! Get out! We are the future. You’re old and tired. Go on. We have beaten you; leave like beaten rats. You old white people, it is your duty to die. Even their own ethicists say that they should die; that they have a duty to die. They’re taking up too much space, too much air.
“Augustin Cebada of the Brown Berets de AztlÃ¡n
They’re afraid that we’re going to take over the governmental institutions and other institutions. They are right, we will take them over, and we are not going to go away.
“Los Angeles City Councilman Richard Alatorre
We have an aging white America. They are not making babies. They are dying. It’s a matter of time. [laughter] The explosion is in our population.
“JosÃ© Angel GutiÃ©rrez, Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Texas at Arlington
Remember: 187 is the last gasp of white America in California. Understand that.
“Art Torres, Chairman of the California Democratic Party
We’re going to take over all the political institutions of California. In five years the Hispanics are going to be the majority population of this state….[Whites] ought to go back to Europe. We are practicing ‘La Reconquista’ in California.
“Mario Obledo of the La Raza Lawyer for California
Spitting bile as he films himself while driving, a black YouTuber who calls himself The Doctor Of Common Sense asks some eminently sensible questions:
Why is it acceptable for people who come from other damn countries to be proud of their country, but if an American who is proud of the American flag is deemed “racist”? Why are you here if you”re so proud of Mexico? Nobody else wants to say it, but Mexico is a fucking hell-hole. They come over here and use our system because of our weak-ass politicians. Mexican pride this, and Mexican pride that. Then why the hell are you over here? Stop the bullshit. If I was saying a country was so great, I wouldn”t have my ass in another country screaming about how great that country is that I ran away from!
The most cogent answer I could find about the roots of Mexican pride come from a commenter on Yahoo!:
Mexicans are proud to be mexicans. You know why? Because we are mexicans.
So you’re proud to be Mexican because you’re Mexican. OK, this is all becoming much clearer.
Until I see a better reason for Mexican pride beyond “It’s because we’re Mexican,” I will continue to suspect that your violent pride is of the defensive sort. Based on the facts, on your behavior, and on the absence of a believable alibi, I will assume that your so-called “pride” is rooted not in pride but in its opposite”shame.
But I will attempt to remain open-minded. I know you’re proud. But I don’t know why. Please Mexplain it for me.
