La Raza by any other name smells just as foul

The National Council of La Raza, the far left Hispanic organization whose name translates to “The Race” and whose motto is “Por la raza todo, fuera de la raza nada” — “For the race, everything, outside the race, nothing,” — met in Phoenix this week for its 2017 national conference

On the agenda was a name change for the clearly racist group, which will now call itself “Unidos U.S.,” or “United U.S.”  according to Janet Murguia, President and CEO,

In 2008, Murguia acknowledged the difficulty the name posed to reporter Ruben Navarrette, Jr., who criticized the name as “a musty throwback to the 1960s.””We take a lot of heat for our name,” Murguia said at the time. She acknowledged that there had been discussions about changing it. “But historically I think it’s something that our community feels wedded to.” Murguia prefers to use its initials, calling it simply, “NCLR.” Yet there’s no escaping the fact that militant Latinos express their advocacy for illegal immigration by shouting, “Viva la Raza!”

Now she admits that though the name change was being considered before Donald Trump was elected President of the United States, the new name “fits the strategy of collective resistance.”

Conference attendees had sharply differing views on the name change, some saying it was “selling out” and expressing pride in the unquestionably racist name.

Randy Parraz, a local open-borders extremist, described benignly as a “community organizer” by the daily newspaper, opposed the name change as giving in to pressure. “We have to own our identity because it makes us powerful,” he said.

Janet Murguia, deeply rooted in liberalism, is not one who speaks impetuously. Her twin sister Mary, is a judge on the left-leaning Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals — nominated by Barack Obama.  AZ  Sens. McCain and Kyl voted for her confirmation. Her brother Carlos is a federal judge for the U.S. District Court in Kansas. Prior to being nominated to the federal bench by Bill Clinton, he was the Coordinator for the Immigration Amnesty Program of El Centro, Inc.

Nine years ago this week, Michelle Malkin, nationally syndicated columnist, author and senior editor at Conservative Review, wrote15 things you should know about “The Race.” It remains relevant. At the time the column was written, presidential candidates John McCain and Barack Obama were each featured speakers at the annual La Raza conference in San Diego. Malkin is a proud American of Philippine heritage.

The late Congressman Dr. Charlie Norwood (R-GA.) warned about La Raza.

*William Shakespeare’s play Romeo and Juliet, she says, “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” Juliet makes the case that it doesn’t matter to her that Romeo is from her family’s longstanding foe, the house of Montague. The reference is often used to imply that the names of things have no affect on what they actually are — as in the case of La Raza.

    Another fine post filled with informative links. Imagine if a “white” group came up with an organization such as LaRaza? We denounced the racist KKK decades ago. But let’s not forget Sen. Robert Byrd, a repeatedly elected DEMOCRAT in West Virginia had actually been a member of the Klan in his youth. Dems have short memories when the facts don’t fit their agenda.

    The entire Murguia family is pro-amnesty and open borders. If these AZ US senators were honest when making campaign promises, we wouldn’t have to deal with their deceit once elected. We wouldn’t have to ask why McCain and Kyl would vote in favor of the confirmation of such a liberal judge whose background was known to them since it was no doubt on his resume.

    They can sanitize the name of their organization, but their cause and mission will remain one of destruction. Their goals are opposite of what our Founding Fathers designed for US.

    Last week, a young woman (last name Martinez) on the East Coast murdered her husband and several young children by stabbing them to death.
    One child, though her throat was slit, managed to survive.
    The mug shot of Ms. Martinez shows her smiling from ear to ear and making the “two thumbs up” sign for the camera.

    Just a few days ago, in Omaha, Nebraska, a Mexican illegal who had been deported multiple times was somehow back in the US, driving a van at speeds estimated at 100 mph. He later admitted to having enjoyed 12 beers prior to getting behind the wheel. He walked away with mere scratches, but took the life of an American citizen who was the father of several children.

    These stories do not make the national news. If you see such a story posted on the foreign press, such as, you can copy it and send it to breitbart and drudge. After checking it out, they will usually post it. If you have Twitter, you can send it far and wide. . . .

    No doubt that LaRaza or other hateful entities like the Southern Poverty Law Center have already rushed to the aid of these misunderstood, down-trodden people.

      forgot to mention that Ms. Martinez is an illegal.
      (but you knew that, right?)

        There is a well funded industry,including La Raza, that works on behalf of the illegal invaders they prefer to call “undocumented” or “migrants.” Undocumented they are not! They have plenty of documents, whether stolen, forged or otherwise counterfeit. We are now inundated with news accounts that illegals are either not coming into the US in the same astronomical numbers or that they are dying while trying to breach our border in 120 degrees. If they are so ignorant as to schedule their invasion in the summer, my sympathies are elsewhere. Not only are they steeped in criminal mindsets, evidenced by their illegal entry into our country, but many continue to commit crimes once they are here. These are not sainted people, but still many churches aid their invasion by providing food and water stations in the desert or providing sanctuary once they are here. This liberal insanity is the major reason we have left the church we were raised in. It abandoned all principles and support of righteous behavior.
