San Antonio’s Congressman Joaquin Castro is not backing off his outing of Trump donors in San Antonio, and his responses to MSNBC on Wednesday, Aug. 7th, 2020, indicate extreme immaturity and poor judgment. His comments defending his potentially dangerous behavior are ridiculous.
For example, Castro said President Trump's immigration policy has “targeted Hispanics.” Even though Joaquin and his brother Julian have Harvard law degrees, they can’t distinguish an ILLEGAL immigrant from a legal one. Because President Trump wants to stop illegal immigration, particularly crossing over the southern U.S./Mexico border, does not make him “anti-Hispanic.”
Black Lives Matter in Louisville, KY, has shown they're interested in power, including threatening small, minority-owned businesses with a list of demands. However, an American of Cuban descent who is a business owner has pushed back, and, of course, he has been confronted by the BLM mob.
BLM is using a Saul Alinsky tactic to intimidate businesses, large and small, into following their social-political-economic agenda or be accused of being racist. Adverse publicity, with the help of the Mainstream Media, is their first-line weapon. Violence and damage are their back-ups.
On Monday, June 15, a rioter/vandal was shot in New Mexico in a confrontation provoked by the leftists that wanted to remove a statue of a historical figure, a Spanish explorer. The incident is full of irony, which the liberal mainstream media and the Democrat politicians of New Mexico are ignoring.
The statue of 16th-century Spanish conquistador Juan de Oñate stands outside a museum in Old Town Albuquerque, and it was targeted by leftists who view him as white, European imperialist who conquered native people. However, local Americans of Hispanic descent see Onate as colonizer and historical figure.
The madness to erase American history has come to San Antonio. On Wednesday, June 17, San Antonio D-1 Councilman Roberto Trevino proposed renaming of Columbus Park and removing of the Christopher Columbus statue.
With the support of Antonio Diaz with the Texas Indigenous Council, Trevino wants to rewrite another piece of American and Texas history in San Antonio. He already is leading the City’s “Re-Imagine the Alamo” project, which many fear minimizes the “1836 Battle of the Alamo.”
The Alamo Cenotaph was vandalized with racist graffiti, probably on Friday, 5/29, in the early morning. The comments include "white supremacy" and "profits over people," with arrows pointing down. These are typical leftist slogans repeated by mindless snowflakes who have been influenced by liberal college professors.
The idea that the Alamo and the Cenotaph are symbols of white supremacy and Anglo-American imperialism has been an undercurrent in the entire remaking (Re-Imagine the Alamo) of the site. Leftist/liberal planners, who are not even Texans, have colluded with left-wing/liberal politicians to rewrite the history of the Alamo, and change its symbolism.
