Rove’s Rave

Joseph Farah,, July 12, 2006

[Listen to Karl Rove’s speech to La Raza here in Windows Media format.]

White House political strategist Karl Rove addressed members of the National Council of La Raza in Los Angeles yesterday telling the group euphemistically described by the Dissociated Press as the nation’s largest Hispanic civil rights group, “all immigrants are real Americans.”

While it may be true that most immigrants are real Americans, it is decidedly not true that members of La Raza are.

What is La Raza?

Well, let’s see: The group sponsors and directs racist schools. It promotes the “reconquista” movement that claims the American Southwest belongs to Mexico. In fact, its very name — which translates to “the race” — exposes its agenda. How do I this politely? These people are Mexican Nazis.


I think if I hear this old saw about America owing everything to diversity one more time, I may gag. I may hurl. I may scream. It’s not true. In fact, immigrants — and don’t forget this — owe everything to America. We’re not great because we’re diverse. We’re great because we once subscribed to a national creed. But thanks to the likes of La Raza haters, that’s no longer true.

Furthermore, diversity is the last thing on the minds of the La Raza crowd. La Raza no more promotes diversity and tolerance than does the Ku Klux Klan.


La Raza may use the word “diversity.” But the meaning of the word has been turned upside down. It doesn’t mean what the dictionary says. It means the opposite. It means conformity. It means if you’re Hispanic, you must think a certain way — or else you’re not really Hispanic. You must believe what the founders of La Raza believe — that is to say what their puppet-masters in the Ford Foundation and Rockefeller Foundation who created the organization want them to believe.

But there was Karl Rove addressing these miscreants. There he was allying himself with them against us — real Americans.

And so America has achieved the kind of diversity La Raza hopes to achieve — political conformity. Both parties — the Republicans and the Democrats — cater to this anti-American scum.

It doesn’t even matter that the group continues to oppose most Bush administration policies. La Raza likes Bush’s amnesty plan and few real Americans do. So, Karl Rove is talking to them instead of us. And the Bush administration embraces these extremists.


The reception to Rove’s speech, not surprisingly, was tepid. He got polite applause amid protests of Bush’s war in Iraq.

It wasn’t anything like the reception former Mexican President Ernesto Zedillo got when he addressed the group in 1997 and proudly affirmed “that the Mexican nation extends beyond the territory enclosed by its borders and that Mexican migrants are an important — a very important — part of this.”

Maybe Rove is looking forward to working his political magic on a bigger stage — the North American Union.

Top White House adviser Karl Rove traveled to Los Angeles this week to pay homage to the anti-immigration enforcement lobbying group for Latinos: the National Council of La Raza.

“La Raza” is Spanish for “The Race.”

It’s bad enough the White House lent its prestige to The Race’s annual conference. But did you know the Bush administration has forked over millions of federal tax dollars directly to The Race?

According to GOP Rep. Charlie Norwood of Georgia, The Race snapped up $15.2 million in federal grants last year alone and more than $30 million since 1996. Undisclosed amounts went to get-out-the-vote efforts supporting La Raza political positions. The U.S. Department of Education funneled nearly $8 million in taxpayer grants to the group for a nationwide charter schools initiative.

Among The Race’s most infamous government-funded charter schools is La Academia Semillas del Pubelo, the Los Angeles public school that teaches “Aztec math” (ancient dot math is the new math) and the Mexican indigenous language of “Nahuatl.” The ethnic separatist principal of the school, Marcos Aguilar, told a sympathetic UCLA interviewer:

“We don’t want to drink from a White water fountain, we have our own wells and our natural reservoirs and our way of collecting rain in our aqueducts. We don’t need a White water fountain…We are not interested in what they have because we have so much more and because the world is so much larger. And ultimately the White way, the American way, the neo liberal, capitalist way of life will eventually lead to our own destruction.”

That’s the tip of the iceberg. I found dozens of other publicly-subsidized charter schools sponsored by The Race and funded with our money . . .
