Republicans deliberately avoid questioning Sotomayor re: her
Board membership in La Raza, anti-American, Latino hate-group
By Paul L. Williams, Ph.D.
No one raised the question of the ape in the anteroom. Senate Democrats praised Sonia Sotomayor as a judicial pioneer, and Republican Lindsey Graham predicted a quick confirmation save for a "complete meltdown." questioned her impartiality and President Barack Obama's views as well Monday at the start of confirmation hearings for the nation's first Hispanic nominee to the Supreme Court. "And I don't think you will" have a meltdown, Graham added quickly as Senorita Sotomayor sat listening, with a broad and knowing smile. Graham made this egregious remark after Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-VT. chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, praised Sotomayor in remarks that opened the proceedings in a packed Senate hearing room. "She's been a judge for all Americans. She'll be a justice for all Americans," he said.
All Americans? Really? Leahy likened Sotomayor to other judicial pioneers, citing Thurgood Marshall, the first black justice on the high court, as well as Louis Brandeis, the first Jew, and Sandra Day O'Connor, the first woman. "Let no one demean this extraordinary woman," Leahy said in a warning to committee Republicans. The Republicans took heed and proceeded to tread lightly. Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama, the senior Republican, vowed to assume a "respectful tone." And so, the most boring confirmation hearings in U.S. history got underway. Not one Republican possessed the temerity to address the pressing and obvious question?
What is Senorita Sotomayor's relationship to Latino hate groups and how does she explain the picture showing La Raza's Founders with Role Model and Mentor Yasir Arafat in Lebanon. Most particularly, what is her own affiliation with La Raza, a group that calls for the Mexican re-conquest of America? Does she really believe – - as La Raza professes – - that the southwestern portion of the United States rightfully belongs to Mexico? Is she in favor of the gringo genocide that her radical Latino associates espouse?
Former Congressman Tom Tancredo, one of the only legislators in recent history with cojones, quipped that La Raza is the Latino equivalent to the KKK. Moreover, Senorita Sotomayor served on the governing board of La Raza for six years. But no one in the House or Senate has raised an eyebrow – - let alone a question – - regarding the candidate's association with this hate group.
La Raza teaches that Colorado, California, Arizona, Texas, Utah, New Mexico, Oregon and parts of Washington State make up an area known as "Aztlan" — a fictional ancestral homeland of the Aztecs before Europeans arrived in North America. These areas belong to the Latinos and Latinas and must be surrendered to "La Raza" once enough immigrants, legal or illegal, come to constitute a majority, as in Los Angeles. Once this is achieved, the current borders of the United States will simply be obliterated.
But, the "reconquista" won't end with territorial occupation and secession. The final plan for the La Raza movement includes the ethnic cleansing of Americans of European, African, and Asian descent out of "Aztlan." Miguel Perez, a La Raza spokesman at Cal State-Northridge, has been quoted as saying: "The ultimate ideology is the liberation of Aztlan. Communism would be closest [to it]. Once Aztlan is established, ethnic cleansing would commence: Non-Chicanos would have to be expelled — opposition groups would be quashed because you have to keep power."
And so, our new Supreme Court appointee and self-professed advocate of La Raza approves of the reformation of the United States, the creation of a separate Chicano country, and widespread ethnic cleansing. In addition, La Raza and other Latino activist groups have expressed widespread anti-Jewish sentiments and support for radical Islam. This finding is supported by articles in "The Voice of Aztlan" with such lurid titles as "That Shitty Little Country Israel," "Pat Tillman Got What Was coming to Him," and "Osama bin Laden: the 'Pancho Villa' of Islam."
Intrepid columnist Michelle Malkin maintains that all Americans should be aware of the following fifteen facts regarding La Raza ("The Race"):
15. "The Race" supports the issuance of driver's licenses to illegal aliens.
14. "The Race" demands in-state tuition discounts for illegal alien students – – discounts are not available to law-abiding U.S. citizens and law-abiding legal immigrants.
13. "The Race" opposes cooperative immigration enforcement efforts between local, state and federal authorities.
12. "The Race" calls for the immediate removal of fences along the Mexican border.
11. "The Race" joined the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee in a failed lawsuit attempt to prevent federal officials from entering immigration information into a key national crime database.
10. "The Race" decried Oklahoma's tough immigration-enforcement-first laws, which cut off welfare to illegal aliens, put teeth in employer sanctions, and strengthened local-federal cooperation and information sharing.
9. "The Race" initiated a lawsuit to prevent Proposition 227, California's bilingual education reform ballot initiative, from becoming law.
8. "The Race" condemned common-sense voter ID provisions as an "absolute disgrace."
7. "The Race" has opposed post-9/11 national security measures at every turn.
6. Former "Race" president Raul Yzaguirre, Hillary Clinton's Hispanic outreach adviser, said this: "U.S. English is to Hispanics as the Ku Klux Klan is to blacks." He was referring to U.S. English, the nation's oldest, largest citizens' action group dedicated to preserving the unifying role of the English language in the United States.
5. "The Race" spawned and supported a poisonous subset of ideological satellites, including Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan (MEChA). The late GOP Rep. Charlie Norwood rightly characterized MEChA as "the most anti-American groups in the country."
4. "The Race" has conducted a smear campaign against staunch immigration-enforcement leaders and has called for TV and cable news networks to keep immigration enforcement proponents off the airwaves.
3. "The Race" sponsors and supports militant ethnic nationalist charter schools subsidized by your public tax dollars to the tune of at least $8 million in federal education grants. These schools include Aztlan Academy in Tucson, Ariz., the Mexicayotl Academy in Nogales, Ariz., Academia Cesar Chavez Charter School in St. Paul, Minn., and La Academia Semillas del Pueblo in Los Angeles. Its principal inveighed: "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 . . . ultimately the White way, the American way, the neo liberal, capitalist way of life will eventually lead to our own destruction."
2. "The Race" has honed the practice of the politically correct shakedown at taxpayer expense, pushing relentlessly to lower home-loan standards for Hispanic borrowers, reaping millions in federal "mortgage counseling" grants, seeking special multimillion-dollar earmarks, and partnering with banks that do business with illegal aliens.
1. "The Race" thrives on ethnic supremacy — and the politically correct elite's unwillingness to call it what it is. Prominent historian Victor Davis Hanson observes: "[The] organization's very nomenclature 'The National Council of La Raza' is hate speech to the core. Despite all the contortions of the group, Raza (as its Latin cognate suggests) reflects the meaning of 'race' in Spanish, not 'the people' — and that's precisely why we don't hear of something like 'The National Council of the People,' which would not confer the buzz notion of ethnic, racial and tribal chauvinism."
Let's remember that Sonia was not only a member of the movement – but also a member of the governing council. Moreover, she has stated in no uncertain terms that race should be a deciding factor in the nomination of judges. "I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion as a judge than a white male who hasn't lived that life," the nominee once pontificated. Of course, her nomination will meet with little resistance.
The time for red-blooded Americans, such as Mr. Tancredo and Ms. Malkin, has come and gone as our country has been taken from them and us by both political parties.

Like Barry Davis Obama, she hates White people, especially Protestants and Baptists. She is a creature of the Order's pro-Black anti-White affirmative action policies----using the Congress to excise tax the White Middle Class to then give to the Blacks and Roman Catholic Latinos. This witch will be the sixth Roman Catholic on the Supreme Court.
