The far left came out to defend civic vandal Gaudencio Fernandez on the opinion page of the Manassas News & Messenger this weekend, providing an interesting insight into what they’re hoping to accomplish. While they may have a quibble with Fernandez violating zoning ordinances by erecting bizarre billboards in Manassas’ historic district, they seem to be rather comfortable with his goal of establishing anarchy and endorse his brand of racial chauvinism. If you happen to be a member of one ethnic group, you get to be more equal, and to the hard left, that’s just fine. Just don’t do anything that utterly enrages the electorate when promoting such rubbish.
This letter is in response to a recent post entitled “Fernandez is pro-illegality,” which addressed the Mexicans Without Borders movement. This movement fights for the repossession of North American territories by indigenous peoples, and the destruction of oppressive, white supremacist governments (which they apply specifically to the U.S.).
So there we have it folks, Mexicans Without Borders is officially dedicated to the alteration of the territorial boundaries of the United States, without the consent of the American people. By definition, that would seem to classify them as “enemy combatants”, should they follow the lead of their EZLN masters and start rounding up AK-47’s again.
Let me state, first of all, that I do not support the tactics used by the Mexica movement.
That having been said, I completely disagree with the author’s comment that Fernandez is “pro-illegality.” Technically speaking, Fernandez is “pro-illegality,” if by this term you mean that he supports illegal aliens as they struggle in their current plight. However, considering his overall vision, pro-illegality is not a very accurate description; he advocates the destruction of current country and state boundaries so that land is returned to the original, indigenous inhabitants.
If this vision is said to be “pro-illegality,” then we must also apply that term to the original explorers and founders of our own country, who ignored the current tribal and regional classifications by indigenous groups and created their own system.
Nice attempt to switch the subject away from Fernandez’s materially supporting the continued unlawful presence of illegal aliens in the community here. Even if we’re going to accept the author’s premise that “destroying” our national sovereignty and imposing anarchy in the process is the point, I’d say it’s pretty darned easy to characterize the promotion of anarchy as a “pro-illegal” action. If you ask anyone that experienced such attempts to redress of ancient greivances regarding original inhabitants in Kosovo, Galilee, or the Sudentenland, they’d probably use terms like “ethnic cleansing”, “the final solution” and “barbarism” to describe this sort of thinking. “Pro-illegal” is an awfully mild charcterization in my view.
To say that Fernandez’ message is un-American demonstrates a complete lack of understanding of American history. Euro-Americans invaded this continent, and then spent the next 400 years telling everyone that all humans were equal and deserved freedom. The author cites illegal immigrants as “lawbreakers,” but that certainly by itself should not be cause for condemnation. Just a few hundred years ago, a slave who escaped from his master was a “lawbreaker.” Laws are constantly changing, and the “illegal” status of these peoples is certainly not an inherent truth and may change in the future.
Actually, I’d say the educational deficiencies rest solely with the author in this piece. African-Americans were always American citizens, wrongly deprived of their rights under our laws, who demonstrated that if we actually followed the law they wouldn’t be discriminated against as they were. Fernandez and his ilk don’t want the law followed, and special priviledges provided to foreign nationals based on their ethnic identity that would violate civil rights laws. Any comparison to the civil rights movement here isn’t just historically insipid, it actually ends up harming the very people who benefited from it.
These are not serial killers and rapists who are coming to invade your streets; these are people who have moved to the United States to live a better life and often to achieve the mythical “American dream.” How un-American of them.
If only that were not more often the case. Criminal gangs like Surenos and MS-13 are sometimes specifically targeting African-Americans, as one federal indictment noted “…gang members have expressed a desire to rid the city of Hawaiian Gardens of all African-Americans and have engaged in a systematic effort to achieve that result by perpetrating crimes against African-Americans.” Illegal aliens are incarcerated in our prison way out of proportion to their numbers in our community and are such a public safety concern that specific state and federal law enforcement programs exist to address illegal alien crime. When protecting public safety and national security gets branded as being “un-American”, those doing so are favoring the law of the jungle over the rule of law, certainly not anything enshrined in our Constitution.
And finally, the author cites Fernandez’s ideas as “human rights violations.” Article 1 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights defines human rights: “All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood. ”
If illegal immigration fits your definition of a human rights violation, there are a few prison camps you should probably visit.
And thus comes the appeal to the United Nations as being the final arbiter of soverignty for Americans, rather than the Constitution. The delusion of the left is truly mind-boggling.
The next time Fernandez, Mexicans Without Borders and the Mexica Movement try to peddle how reasonable they supposedly are, remember this letter when the far left had a chance to spell out in clear terms what they really stand for. They aren’t interested in civil rights, nor equality, nor any of those other friendly terms they meaninglessly banter about. These are hard-core anarchists, dedicated to the destruction of the United States, and happy to recruit any bubble-headed “social justice” adherent to their case they can find as anothere “useful idiot”, as Marx termed it, that can be employed as cannon fodder.
