Los Angeles’ hispanic Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa had his moment in the glare of the national spotlight at the Democratic Convention, and did not get good marks. His handling of the changes to the party platform from the stage was arguably the worst, most cringeworthy moment of the convention, as the audience refused to co-operate and […]
Spanish-language media has a strong anti-assimilation agenda based on its own self-interest. If the Mexicans and other hispanic immigrants get pulled into American culture (like speaking English) then Spanish radio and TV doesn’t have a captive audience. So Univision and Telemundo want Mexican newbies to stay tuned in and balkanized.
Spanish media has been one of […]
It’s hard for a normal mind to keep up with the wacky leftist groupthink that energetically runs amok in Sacramento. The project of remaking California into the perfect diversity utopia continues in the one-party state, with the latest eruption being a new law that encourages schools to include bracero history.
Last year, California became the first […]
A few years ago there was dust up over Ken Burns’ World War Two documentary “The War” coming from disgruntled hispanics who thought that their ever-so-special contributions had been overlooked. Even though the film was completed, Burns caved and added some material to appease the ethnic activists after being harangued at length.
The controversy is part […]
Is it just me, or is there a noticeable uptick in the Opravda media’s illegal alien sob stories, spiced up with children, conveniently coinciding with the Republican convention? The countdown to election day continues apace, and Obama needs his loyal press posse to step up their game with more of the same old crapdoodle: Republicans […]
Talk about putting out the unwelcome mat — Mexico is being downright snotty to its returning citizens and their US-born jackpot kiddies by not providing basic paperwork to get them plugged into school and healthcare.
Wait, weren’t the remittance checks from Mexo-expats an important part of the country’s economy, amounting to tens of billions of dollars […]
When Mexican townspeople chant “Immigrants, get out!” at troublesome foreigners in their midst, one notices a certain glaring hypocrisy. After all, illegal Mexicans expect a full refrigerator of jobs and free stuff when they invade the United States for their own personal gain, but when Central Americans plunk down in Mexico on their way north, […]
According to the Opravda media, Mexicans have quit breaking in to the US, so problem over, let’s just forget about the disagreeable subject of defending American sovereignty. (Although Central Americans keep coming as before.)
But whatever the media says about the border being secure, another measure, that of remittances, shows that Mexicans are now strip-mining America […]
Four-year-old Christopher “Buddy” Rowe was killed last August as he walked with his mom and two sisters on the way to soccer practice. He lagged a bit behind the others and was struck in the marked crosswalk and flew 80 feet when hit by illegal alien Marcos Lopez Garcia.
The illegal then sped off and switched […]
As expected, Mexico’s Presidente Calderon was thrilled with his pal Obama’s pre-election amnesty reversal. More freebies for illegal Mexicans on the US taxpayer’s tab means more disposable income to be sent home to Mexico as remittances. El Presidente likes that just fine.
Interestingly, as the days have rolled by since Obama’s announcement, different estimates of the […]
Newbie Mexicans have a habit of enforcing the primacy of their home culture among hispanics who reside in this country. In the dear homeland, for example, Spanish speakers look down on indigenous Mexicans who speak Triqui, Nahuatl and other tribal languages, and they bring that ethnic discrimination with them when they hop the border to […]
Many Mexicans who plop themselves down in the United States cannot properly be called “immigrants” (either legal or illegal) because many come entirely for the money, not to stay and become Americans. One example: only 21 percent of latinos polled by Pew Hispanic self-identified as Americans.
Merriman-Webster defines “immigrant” as “a person who comes to a […]
