The woman mayor who was kidnapped and murdered by a Mexican drug gang pleaded with her attackers for her young daughter’s life, it emerged today.

Maria Santos Gorrostieta, who had already survived two assassination attempts, was driving the child to school at around 8.30am when she was ambushed by a car in the city of Morelia.

The 36-year-old was hauled from her vehicle and physically assaulted as horrified witnesses watched, according to newspaper El Universal.
They described how she begged for her child to be left alone and then appeared to get into her abductors’ car willingly.

Maria Santos Gorrostieta

The little girl was left wailing as her mother was driven away on Monday November 12.

For the next week, her frantic family waited by the phone for a ransom call that never came.

Gorrostieta’s body – stabbed, burned, battered and bound at wrist and ankle – would finally be found eight days on dumped by a roadside in San Juan Tararameo, Cuitzeo Township.

She left behind her daughter and two sons as well as her second husband Nereo Delgado Patinoran.

Hailed as a heroine of the 21st century, her death has prompted much soul-searching in a country ravaged by violence.

The decision to withdraw her security team in November last year – and her police escort in January – has come under particular scrutiny.
Gorrostieta was elected as mayor of Tiquicheo, a rural district in Michoacan, west of Mexico City, in 2008.

Almost immediately, she received threats. The first assassination attempt came in October 2009 when the car she was travelling in with her first husband Jose Sanchez came under fire from gunmen in the town of El Limone. The attack claimed his life but Gorrostieta lived.

She battled back from her injuries in the face of overwhelming tragedy, but she was not destined to know peace.

The next attempt on her life was just three months later, when an masked group carrying assault rifles ambushed her on the road between Michoacan and Guerreo state. The van she was traveling in was peppered by 30 bullets. Three hit her.

This time her wounds were more severe, leaving multiple scars and forcing her to wear a colostomy bag. She was left in constant pain.

But with unimaginable courage – and despite being a marked woman – she remained defiant to the very end.

When some doubted that she had been shot, Gorrostieta bared the scars that riddled her flesh and swore she would never give in.

In a statement to the public made at the time, the devout Catholic said: ‘At another stage in my life, perhaps I would have resigned from what I have, my position, my responsibilities as the leader of my Tiquicheo.

‘But today, no. It is not possible for me to surrender when I have three children , whom I have to educate by setting an example, and also because of the memory of the man of my life, the father of my three little ones, the one who was able to teach me the value of things and to fight for them.

‘Although he is no longer with us, he continues to be the light that guides my decisions.’

She added: ‘I struggle day to day to erase from my mind the images of the horror I lived, and that others who did not deserve or expect it also suffered.

‘I wanted to show them my wounded, mutilated, humiliated body, because I’m not ashamed of it, because it is the product of the great misfortunes that have scarred my life, that of my children and my family.’

‘Despite my own safety and that of my family, what occupies my mind is my responsibility towards my people, the children, the women, the elderly and the men who break their souls every day without rest to find a piece of bread for their children.

‘Freedom brings with it responsibilities and I don’t dare fall behind. My long road is not yet finished – the footprint that we leave behind in our country depends on the battle that we lose and the loyalty we put into it.’

After her ordeal she remarried and ran for a seat in Mexico’s Congress of the Union, but failed to gain the backing she needed.

She remarried and dropped out of the public eye.

But it was still almost inevitable that she would eventually pay for her bravery with her life

Mexico has been torn apart by murderous drug gangs since President Felipe Calderon launched his drug offensive in 2006.

More than 50,000 people have been killed in clashes between rival drug cartels and security forces and about two dozen mayors have been murdered.

The cartels have ruled the streets with fear for years, enforcing their authority with murders, bribery and torture.

But after decades of using force to combat the gangs, it is U.S. lawmakers who are the criminals’ biggest problem.

Legalisation of marijuana, as recently voted for by Colorado and Washington states, may wipe billions of dollars from the cartels’ annual profits.

And it has left politicians in Mexico with a tough question: How can they continue to justify spending money – and lives – fighting drug distribution to America when it will be legal in some states from next month?

Mexico presidential advisor Luis Videgaray said in a radio interview last week: ‘Obviously, we can’t handle a product that is illegal in Mexico, trying to stop its transfer to the United States, when in the United States, at least in part of the United States, it now has a different status’

From January to September last year, 12,903 people were killed in the country in drug-related crime, ranging from gang members, Mexican military and innocent victims caught up in gun battles.

The Mexican government claim they are winning the war on drugs, but few outside – or inside – the country believe that.

So corrupt are their police that they are rarely employed in combating the cartels. Instead, the country relies on its army to tackle the gangs while it attempts to rebuild its police forces.

Public support for the drug war continues to fall as the death toll rises and the cartels’ profits rise.

The business of trafficking drugs from Mexico into the U.S. is estimated to be a business worth between $13billion (£8billion) and $49billion (£30billion), with 90 per cent of all cocaine used in America originating from the country, according to a U.S. state report.

The U.S. Justice Department considers the cartels as America’s greatest organised crime threat, while conceding that it is U.S. dollars that fund the crime ravaging Mexico.

In 2009 a military assessment predicted that if the drugs war continued for another 25 years, Mexico’s government was at serious risk of collapse and the conflict would spread into America.

A year earlier, the U.S. Joint Forces Command suggested a similar time-scale of collapse in Mexico and warned American intervention may be necessary due to the implications for homeland security.

The problem of strengthening the Mexico/U.S. border even prompted President Barack Obama to deploy 1,200 National Guard troops in 2010.

The two major cartels in Mexico are now the Sinaloa Cartel and Los Zetas.

The Sinaloa Cartel was formed when several gangs agreed to join forces in 2006 and is now led by Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman.

He is Mexico’s most wanted drug trafficker and is believed to be worth $1billion. Forbes magazing even declared him the 55th most powerful man in the world in 2009.

Los Zetas were originally a mercenary outfit of former elite members of the Mexican army by the Gulf Cartel.

Consisting of Airmobile Special Forces Group and Amphibian Group of Special Forces members, they helped control parts of Mexico for the Gulf Cartel until its leader, Osiel Cardenas Guillen, was arrested.

Los Zetas took the opportunity to seize power for themselves and are now a 300-strong independent drugs and arms trafficking gang under the leadership of Heriberto Lazcano.

    She was only a mayor. The bigwig who ordered her assasination is the governor.

    • Katherine McChesney

      I think she was brave.

  • Pelagian

    White, white, white! And pretty too!

    • pcmustgo

      Very pretty. But not entirely white at all…. that’s hair dye, btw, her natural hair color is black… cheekbones and eyes scream American-Indian/Mestizo… here’s a clue, when you mix white with amer-ind or even black, they are gonna’ get some white features, especially when we’re talking ratios like 75% white… or 60%. More so when we’re talking mixing white with amer-ind/asian/east indian than mixing with black. But even black watered down enough looks white. There’s people with blue eyes and blond hair and white skin that have black ancestry. I’ve known many Puerto Ricans like that, and yes, one of the parents was a standard mulatto/quardroon.

      • pcmustgo

        Probably breast implants there too, but whatever.

            Doesn’t anyone see that this woman fought the most valorous fight against evil that Mexico has seen since perhaps the Cristeros and that she is whiter than 98% of her countrymen? Coincidence??

      • alas

        I have black hair and am white as well, you don’t need to be blonde/red/brown hair to be white. I would go so far as to say most whites have black hair… Whereas that is my belief, this is a genuine question – what is the talk of cheek bones? I’ve never noticed any differences tbh.

        • pcmustgo

          American Indians have more pronounced cheekbones…. Can’t you tell?

        • pcmustgo

          Black hair among whites is rare and suspect of race mixing. I say that as someone who looks white but is not completely white according to amren’s standards (half jewish)

          • Remington

            ‘Black hair among whites is rare and suspect of race mixing’ ????

            And you must have never lived in Western Europe where most adults have indeed either dark brown or black hair regardless of their eye color and skin tone. Most women dye their hair now, but a quick look at most men celebrities from the UK, for example, will quickly reveal an overwhelming majority of dark brown and black hair (ie” The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Clash, U2, Bryan Ferry, Laurence Olivier, James Mason, Sean Connery, Pierce Brosnan, Christian Bale, etc, etc).

            Like you correctly pointed out, it’s not just our lighter features that make us White. What separate us as White is our European ancestry and our unmistakably unique facial and body proportions.

            Here are some African and Asian albinos, and there is no confusion about them not being Whites regardless how light they are:

            MOST? Most Western Europeans have black hair? Hardly… maybe in Southern Italy… Also, race is a spectrum…. No one’s saying “whites” with black hair are black albinos… I’m saying there’s a good chance they mixed with American Indians , not unheard of here in America. Like Megan Fox is part amer-ind. Or that they have some gypsy or jewish blood (funny, I’m not sure I’ve ever met a Jew with black hair… lots of brunettes though)….

          • kjh64

            Black hair is rare now because of hair dye. My paternal grandmother had Black hair but fair skin and blue eyes and was purely Celtic in origin.

          • pcmustgo

            Black hair has always been rare in Europe… Please, Scottish and Irish , if anything, are known for their red hair. And palest of all skins.

            That being said, there are the “black Irish” , alleged to be descended from Spanish shipwrecked sailors.

          • David Ashton

            Northern Europe mainly. See J. Deniker, “The Races of Man” (1900) pp.47-48; H. F. K. Guenther, “The Racial Elements of European History” (1927) pp.10-42, Maps VI,X,XIV; C. S. Coon, “The Living Races of Man” (1966), pp.64,239. What color hair do Mitt Romney and Jared Taylor have?

          • pcmustgo

            Jared Taylor I suspect could have Amer-Indian ancestry… my grandfather had black hair, btw… germanic descent… and yes, we “suspect” it could mean something- amer-indian/jewish/gypsy.
            But do Jared Taylor and Mitt Romney really have black hair? It looks dark brown to me. Jared Taylor has such grey hair, I can’t tell….

            What gives it away with this woman is the cheekbones. And her yellowish skin.

            Puerto Ricans are , on average, 1/2 white, 1/4th black and 1/4th amer-ind…. Often true for Mexicans too.

            You guys don’t understand racial mixing. You think people are either black or white or asian or amer-ind. You don’t know what generations of racial mixing produce… They produce Elizabeth Warrens… 1/32nd American Indians who have blond hair and blue eyes. And long ancestries here in the US…

            They produce, yes, Jews… middle easterners bleached through centuries of travel through Europe. They are 90% European! That is backed up through genetic studies!

            There is relatively limited racial purity on earth.

            I am NOT saying “go out and mix”.

            I am just shocked you guys can’t tell this woman is NOT WHITE according to American standards…. barely even by Latin standards… And from a group so obsessed with race.

            Many Russians have tiny bits of Asian in them… but blond hair. Don’t you get this?

            Don’t you get that there is a spectrum?

            You guys need to hang out with more 1/16th blacks. Or Octoroons!

            And yes, certain Americans with black hair I’ve always suspected of Amer-ind ancestry. Jim Jones (the cult leader), Elvis, sure.(or Turkish in Elvis’s case).. Patsy Cline without a doubt (she had those huge facial bones too, but brown hair). It’s the deep, dark, dark, dark brown eyes too… Country singer Roy Orvison.

          • David Ashton

            I am pretty sure my British ancestors on both sides were indigenous to Britain for as far back as matters. Certainly no American Indians or Jews! I am not an “Aryan Paragraph” or “British Israel” racial crackpot, however, and to my previous references I would add: Julian Huxley, A. C.Haddon & A. M. Carr-Saunders, “We Europeans” (1939), pp.194-197,216-236 (read with care); John R. Baker, “Race” (1974), pp.264-267.
            The girl in the photo has some Amerind ancestry to judge from her facial structure. So what? She is still a heroine. I don’t find her particularly pretty but then that’s just me. Naomi Watts is my typical screen favorite.

          • Pelagian

            I’ve alwAys discounted the Spanish Armada theory. If you look at Lindow man, buried deep in a peat bog in England, who was killed pursuant to a Druid ritual, … He had dark brown/black hair and brown eyes. Since he was a Celt and since the Celts came out of Turkey in the Iron Age ( or was it the La Tene dynasty? My college archaeology class is fading on me) .. it always seemed to make sense. The Celts are the ones who finally got pushed to Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Cornwall, … Where else? Brittany, Isle of Man. The Anglo SXons and Vikes that came in after them were comparatively fairer.

          • alas

            No my ancestors are Scottish not Scots-Irish and I live in England so no Amerindian or black mixing. Some have red hair, some dark brown, but some black. Just look at Pierce Brosnan! Granted he’s Irish but you get the image.

          • alas

            hmm I don’t know, my Scottish side all have black hair…

          • pcmustgo

            Scottish or Scots-Irish..? The Scots-Irish that populate the South are poor, rural folk, who have been in America a very long time- just the types who are most likely to engage in a little race-mixing with American Indians.

            American “whites” must wake up to the fact that a good 10% of “whites” here have some distant amer-ind (not uncommon!) and even black blood in their veins. That being said, these people look white, are treated like whites and suffer almost all of the same issues “whites” suffer.

            Absolute and complete racial purity is mostly limited to Northern Europe.

            Do you hate the Italians and Spaniards too for their moorish blood?

            Can we all unite to get something done, like stand up for whites and shine a spotlight on reverse racism, the real important matter here?

        Indeed, She is pretty but she is not white. If that is white, then my country Argentina would be more than 80% white and easily. She certainly has a lot of European ancestry.
        In any case I suppose that if most Mexicans crossing the border would be like her a lot of people wouldn´t be here

    • No Name

      She does not look white. I frequently see people here referring to some Hispanics as ‘white’ when they look far from it. Some whites are just in denial about the fact that they find non-whites attractive.

      • None

        No….what is going on in mexico today is what you are going to have to face tomorrow and quite frankly it’s your fault, and you will likely have happen to you exactly what happened to this white woman.

        White nationalists USED to control mexico and still do control many south american countries. These are people far more white than you probably. Because you are stupid and arrogant (and quite frankly, mongrelized) you cannot see that the American type of “white” is just one of several different lines of white people. The same way that there are german whites, french whites, spanish (as in from spain) whites, italians, russians etc. You stupidly buy into the liberal lies that define people south of the border by language instead of race and can’t tell the difference between a white, black and amerind (beaner) even though it is obvious. You define white, not by race but by american culture. And quite frankly, in case you’ve lived under a rock for 40 years, american culture is thoroughly corrupted and negrofied.

        What happened to white nationalist control of mexico? Negrofied american influence used wealth as leverage to defeat the nationalists politically and then put lots and lots of money into the hands of non-whites directly, through a combination of out of control socialism and the drug trade.

        And YOU did nothing. Because you did nothing, this WHITE woman was brutalized and killed by non-whites. Happens every day in YOUR country. But because its not happening to you personally, right now, you could care less.

        Instead, you are in denial. Denial about what is happening. Denial that it is happening to white people. And especially denial about your responsibility to do something about it.

        Make no mistake, by the time it is so close to home you simply can’t deny it anymore, it will be a pack of savages doing unthinkable things to you and your family. But don’t worry, the people in the current “good” neighborhoods will simply deny you are even white. So I guess it won’t matter.

        This white woman did what YOU never would. Stood up to them.

        • pcmustgo

          Dude, she looks like a Puerto Rican… she’s beautiful… but she is not white… You guys here on amren must live in areas where there are not a lot of mestizos/ricans… You seem to not understand some Puerto Ricans have skin as white as snow- but black features, kinky hair, the darkest brown eyes. Even Marco Rubio has some amer-ind in him…. I have no problem with this woman. But she is not “white” and doesn’t even pass for one. You seem to not be able to recognize mixed race people. There’s a huge spectrum when it comes to these mixed race Latino people and mixed race people in general – hell, there’s mulattos that come out with blond hair. And like I said, when we’re talking about generations of mixing like Latinos, we wind up with women like her. She has plenty of amer-ind traits and if you took away the hair dye you’d see it more. Good for you for appreciating all forms of beauty, just don’t tell me she even looks white, and don’t tell me you’re against miscegenation if you think she’s beautiful…. You seem to think all Mexicans are dark brown, and if their skin isn’t brown, then they are white… sorry, doesn’t work that way. Her mother probably was a dark brown who mixed with a spaniard and out comes her. I live in NYC, full of Puerto Ricans, Dominicans, and Mexicans…

          • pcmustgo

            She’s about 80% white genetically… but not white, Like most Latinas, she’s a woman of mixed race… whiter than many of her browner Mexican peers, but not white in the traditional American sense. The fact that Latinos tend to be poor and ghetto here in the US, including ones with her skin tone, doe s not help in people viewing them as “whites”. So, while Jews have “become white” in most people’s eyes, not so much for people like her.

        • No Name

          I just don’t understand how anyone with decent eyesight could look at her and see a white woman. She obviously has European ancestry (unless her look is a result of ‘whitewashing’), but her Amerindian genes are very dominant in her appearance.

          I’m not sure what you mean by me being in ‘denial’. I’m very well aware of the attack on whites.

        • danlieb7

          She is white? Seriously? Huh, if (according to your delusion) Maria Santos Gorrostiesta is “white” than I guess Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart of Salzburg, Austria was a famous black pianist and music composer from the 16th century! Get a grip and let go of the irrational denial.

          There is no one American type of “White” and Whites in America aren’t “mongrelized”. They are of the same race just different ethnicities ie. a German/Irish or other such mixes, which is common in the USA, is not a “mongrel” As far as south of the border, most are mixed. Some are pure European or pure Indian or whatever but most are varying degrees of Mestizo. This lady looks to have a lot of White blood in her but you can see some Amerind.

        She is mixed white. The Latin word for mixed is mexi, which is where the word Mexico comes from.

        I would say she was pretty in her own way, but I do not find her attractive I would not chose her as a mate). I do have to respect any woman who fights against all odds, against gangsters, for her country, and what is right. She has more guts than 95% of the cowardice white males in this country, and in a war against pure evil, I would rather have her on my side than those 95% white cowards.

    I think those of us who say she is white are being given an impossible burden here. Since “white” is basically the absence of color, we are being forced to prove that she doesnt have a trace of it. It’s difficult to prove a negative! Maybe this is why we, in the white rights movement, have had such a difficult time of it the last 100 years or so. We spend most of our time defining “who is in and who is out”. Maybe I am not “white” compared to a Swede, who knows?

    I know one thing for sure, over at African Renaissance, they’re not coming to blows over the misclassification of a woman as “black”.

  • kjh64

    The obvious answer for all of this is to shut down the US/Mexican border. If America would build the 2,000 mile wall, and put troops on the border, it would stop most of the drugs coming into the country as well as human smuggling, criminals and illegal alients coming. (Of course with illegal aliens, one would have to also crack down on employment, benefits and end birthright citizenship. If this happened, a large part of the drug violence would end. Don’t say is can’t be done because the Chinese built the 4000 mile long Great Wall of China before modern times and it worked quite well. It makes NO sense for America to keep fighting the losing “war on drugs” when we basically allow them into the country by open borders.

    • David Ashton

      I am only an Englishman but it seems to me a lot more politically feasible for white Americans to reinforce immigration barriers and enforce repatriation measures, and to reintroduce eugenics, than successfully to establish various little self-supporting ethno-states, especially if these each have fussy entry criteria (e.g fair haired settlers only).

  • jack ryan

    Relax. All of these problems with Zeta drug cartel murders will be solved when Ron Paul is elected President of the United States and granted absolute power to implement the 100% Libertarian program of legalization of all drugs, the free flow of labor (Mexicans), capital across all borders and the merging of Mexico, the United States, Africa, the Muslim world in one prosperous world where “free markets” save the entire world and everyone is free to do whatever they want free of government regulation.

    deemed the safest city over 500000 people in the US when across the border its a totally different story.If the ethnicity is not all too dissimilar Is it all about good law enforcement or am I missing something?

    • William Allingham

      its because El Paso is administrated by the USA, having one of the biggest military complexes and although is full of mexicans there still are more whites than in many parts of mexico, we can see that places where most Hispanics are concentrated, have become among the most dangerous to live (like Florida) any safe part of the USA that is invaded by mexicans becomes a backwardness cultivation, now imagine on the other side of the border places not only having lots of mexicans but being administered by them!

      the actual situation of mexico is not new rather is a mitigated version of what the maya and aztecs had.

    Putting aside the chromatic chorus, may this Englishman with black hair point out that US support for Mexican law-and-order heroines and heroes is preferable to letting disorderly Mexicans unlawfully enter the USA?

  • Hirene

    Aid for Latin America (Mexico) was diverted to the Middle East. We should follow the Monroe Doctrine and care about what’s in our own backyard.

    • Pelagian

      We traded the Monroe Doctrine for the Moshe Doctrine.

    My summary comment: This woman fought the most valorous fight against evil that Mexico has seen since perhaps the Cristeros and that she is whiter than 98% of her countrymen? Coincidence??

    • William Allingham

      she looks more like a middle Eastern and white mixture (not surprising if she has Spaniard ancestry) even the whitest mexicans have some Libanese or Arab blood, anyway that would be whiter than the rest and middle easterns rank higher than indians.

      mexicans are at the bottom just above blacks and that is thanks to the white blood influx from Europe(full blooded indians perhaps were around the same level)

    Dividing Europeans and Americans on the basis of hair color is neither racially nor politically wise or productive. “‘Nordics’ in pigmentation only need apply. Anyone with any suspect Mediterranean or Alpine traits are banned.”
    I do not speak only from a personal interest: my Devonian father had black hair and bright blue eyes with a perfect pink skin; my maternal Berkshire grandmother very dark hair and the old Anglo-Saxon surname Dear; all my grandchildren are blond and we are all intelligent. I have read Baker, Chamberlain (“raven-haired Vikings”),Coon, Darlington, Gobineau, Grant, Guenther, Schwidetsky, Stoddard, and many more (including recent DNA studies). I found Christopher Hutton’s unusually objective and balanced “Race in the Third Reich” (2005) especially valuable, and concur with James Gregor’s observation that not even the Nazis were so stupid as to judge a man’s character or ability from his external appearance. Adolf Hitler told Diana Mosley, “The Swedes are the ‘purest’ Nordics and the best they ever produced was Gustavus Adolphus.”
    I would rather go into battle alongside a brunet dwarf like Napoleon Bonaparte than a handsome “all-American” like – Alger Hiss.

    why should the world be witness of the reenactment of the fall of the Aztec empire?

    perhaps they had not enough blood and decadence with their ancestors and mexicans want to make sure we realize they have no capacity for civilization, well that we already know now let us keep them as far as possible.

    I am not sure that drug legalization would be a net advantage to the US population, despite the current clamor for marijuana legalization, just as research is establishing its more serious medical impacts, and despite the campaigns funded by the likes of George Soros.

    To undercut criminal supply drugs need to be varied, more easily accessible and very much cheaper. If not supplied through regulated state-outlets at taxpayer expense, and instead left to free trade mass-marketing and advertising, their harms will spread. These are brain poisons whose capacity for habituation and addiction make them profitable commercially generation after generation, with medical and social costs externalized on to others (broken families, broken contracts, workplace inefficiency, hospitalization, rehab, road accidents and psychosis-stimulated crime).

    By all means have a debate, but as with racial issues, let INFORMED opponents of “social liberalism” have an equal say.

    I read this and am inspired and humbled by this woman’s courage. Then I read the comments and all you’re doing is bickering like ninnies about her genetic make-up. Did any of you read the article, or did you just look at the picture? What a strange bunch you are, sitting at your computers, railing away at the world as you perceive it, while this woman literally suffered and put her life on the line for what she believed. Too much…keyboard warriors vs. a real Warrior. If you are to get this White Homeland you dream of, you need women like her by your side.
