“Fiesta San Antonio” which began as a single event to honor the memory of the battles of the Alamo and San Jacinto, is now being criticized by some students at UTSA that say the city's party has racist roots. It is the latest effort by local liberals and leftists in San Antonio to revise Texas history.
The students Luke Valdes, president of the Mexican American Studies Student Organization (MASSO) says "After Texas independence, many people were celebrating it as a celebration of white supremacy, dominance, colonization of Mexico of Tejas. As far as slavery, imperialism, fascism, manifest destiny, white supremacy, colonization.”
Mexico City native Dennise Frausto says the ten-day festival is a slap in the face because it uses Mexican culture to celebrate the defeat of Mexico. She also says she never participate in the celebration.
Liberal and leftist professors and scholars preach that Texas is the result of American racist expansion that victimized “3rd world natives and people of color”. These UTSA students agree, and like China’s young Red Guard in the 1960s, they want to “expose the truth.” Of course, the local liberal media gave them a public forum.
Once again we see how the Democrats and the liberal media collude on "social justice" issues. Minnesota Democrat Congresswoman Ilhan Omar has apologized for her repugnant anti-semitic comments and tweets, but she is being treated differently than Republican Iowa Congressman Steve King who was vilified by the Democrats and the liberal Media.
The Washington Post today gushed with praise and forgiveness at Omar's apology. She is not going be reprimanded in any way by the House leadership, either.
King was removed from his House committees and was criticized for days in the press. Regardless of several apologies by King over what many said was a free expression of an opinion by King, the media called for resignation, too.
The Democrats' and the Media's double standard on racism is undeniable, and they both cover for each other to justify their positions.
Democrats and liberals believe there are two kinds of racism and discrimination.
“Good” racism and discrimination is when minorities can take advantage over non-minorities through affirmative action and other preferential programs and laws. Liberal minorities justify discrimination against non-minorities in the name of social justice, and people like Elizabeth Warren use this “good” racism to further her career by claiming to be a minority (American Indian).
“Bad” racism is any action by non-minorities that liberals and Democrats define as offensive including costumes and language. For example, whites in black-face or wearing MAGA hats are considered offensive and racist, no matter how innocent the intention or behavior.
The fact is that liberals and Democrats define racism according to their political agenda. There is no "social" justice, only justice, and there's no "good" or "bad" racism, just racism, and it is always bad.
Apparently, according to Democrats, there is positive and negative racism in 2019. The positive is that a person can get with preferential treatment under the law and by society for being a particular (protected) race such as affirmative action. The negative one will penalize someone for disrespecting another race such as wearing blackface or "appropriating" a culture. Who determines what's good or bad? Apparently, the Democrats do.
Democrat presidential candidate and Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren has experienced the positive. On Wednesday, February 6, 2019, The Washington Post reported that her 1986 Texas State Bar registration card, which Warren personally filled out and signed, listed her race as “American Indian.”
Hispanic-First Hispanics and Anti-America Hispanics are demanding an apology from NBC's Tom Brokaw on for saying that Hispanics should "work harder at assimilation." Brokaw commented during a conversation on NBC’s “Meet the Press” about immigration on Sunday, Jan. 27.
However, the fact is that Hispanics/Latinos are not melting into American society as other immigrant groups have, and self-segregation is hurting them.
Hispanics live next door to Latin America, and their language and culture are kept alive and refreshed by uncontrolled immigration and Spanish language media in the United States.
Furthermore, liberal political correctness encourages multiculturalism which condemns American values. Ethnic and racial nationalism discourages Hispanics from assimilating and justifies ethnic separatism.
Race-baiting Hispanic Texas Democrat Congressman Joaquin Castro from San Antonio called Brokaw "ignorant," but in fact, discouraging assimilation does not serve Hispanic immigrants at all.
All immigrants should learn English and embrace the values that made America great, such as economic self-sufficiency, competition, and individuality.
Democrats want Hispanics to be tribal, and to depend on community leaders or political bosses. Herding Hispanics together based on their ethnicity is the Democrats’ political plan.
Hispanics and all immigrants should assimilate rather than retain their old world values and recreate their nation here in the US.
What’s the point of coming to America if you don’t become American?
