|Nightmare Racism and Open Call for Revolution:
Alex Jones Reports on Mexican Independence Day in Austin, Texas
Demonstrators’ Shirts Made Reference to the Plan of San Diego, a Genocide Operation against Whites over 16

By Alex Jones
I am extremely depressed and have the feeling of being struck by a thunderbolt. Words cannot describe what I witnessed. For that reason, as the pain of what I’ve seen will take some time to percolate and dissipate, this is going to be part one of a three part series.
First off, anyone who knows me and the body of my work knows that I stand up for the little guy. Whether it’s innocent black farmers in Tulia, Texas being framed by racist white cops, or innocent Hispanic youth laboring in the modern slave fields of corporate prisons, I’m there standing up for them.
Earlier this year, when a young Hispanic man named Daniel Rocha was shot in the back for absolutely no reason by a female APD officer, I called for her indictment. I interviewed multiple organizations that were trying to get the word out about his tragic death.
I have protested the Klu Klux Klan at least 10 times – and by protest I don’t mean that I’ve trailed along in the back of a counter rally.
I have led demonstrations. I have bullhorned the toothless ne’er-do-wells at point blank range and have been the target of their death threats right in front of the police, who did nothing.
When a young black girl was falsely accused of abusing a baby, we rallied to her cause and she was found not-guilty. When US Marines shot the young Texas goat herder, Esequiel "Zeke" Hernandez, we sent cameras to the border and did dozens of reports on the case.
If I attempted to give you a bibliography of everything I’ve done in defense of the disadvantaged, it would fill a volume.
THE ALEX JONES REPORT
September 21, 2005
WinMedia: High | Low
Quicktime: High | Low
What is the point I’m making? I don’t have any guilt. I don’t dislike people because of where they’re from or because of their race. I work hard every day of my life to fight tyranny and corruption in places high and low to defend the dignity of the human spirit.
|For many years, I have been aware of the Atzlan reconquista movement, which openly states that it wishes to take over the United States Southwest from California to Louisiana, reunite it with Mexico and forcibly drive out all whites, as well as many blacks, from these states.
|Rabid hatred of America, Texas and whites is evident in over a third of Dies y Seis marchers personally poled by Texans for Freedom
Then I began to learn that Dies y Seis celebrations around the country, which in the past were simply fun equivalents of a Mexican Saint Patrick’s Day, were being infiltrated by extremist Mexican hate groups.
I talked to some of the groups that were planning to participate in the Dies y Seis parade through downtown Austin this year and it only reaffirmed my previous research that there was a powerful revolutionary core to these groups dedicated to overthrowing Texas and setting up a racial state.
Being a minority (that’s right, whites are now the minority in Texas and in five other states), this was of great concern to me. I put the call out a day before the parade to my radio listeners that all Americans who understood the threat of the reconquistas and their corporate funders in Washington should assemble in front of the Capitol to simply educate other well-meaning celebrants who hadn’t realized that the Atzlan crowd had co-opted their parade.
Our press release that was sent to the media clearly stated that we were there to expose racist groups that were preaching their message in the Hispanic community, and that these groups were creating division that was detrimental to everyone.
Of course, this meant absolutely nothing to the corporate media, who universally went with the line (in four different news stations’ reports and in different newspapers) that what happened was a clash between minutemen (there wasn’t one minuteman in attendance) and loving, wonderful, pure, sweet, innocent people who “just wanted to celebrate Mexican independence.”
The controlled media continued their lies by running multiple quotes by parade marchers and Congressman Lloyd Doggett that basically anyone questioning anything was a Klu Klux Klan member.
Our crowd of about a hundred consisted of at least 15 Hispanics and 10 blacks. We have actual TV news reports that show some of these Hispanics and blacks who were with our protest in which they are falsely depicted as being with the other side. In one news clip by News 8 Austin, a young Hispanic girl is wearing an infowars "tyranny response team" t-shirt, but the clip implies that she was protesting us (while she’s talking on my bullhorn).
Why does the corporate media have such a stake in making this a white vs. brown debate? Answer: divide and conquer.
(Oh, by the way, if any damages are accrued by these lies, people are going to get sued. Folks who know our history know that’s not a bluff.)
What did we witness? Why am I so upset?
At least a third of the participants we talked to said that Texas was Mexico and that they were taking over. Of this third their responses ranged from a belief that our two countries would merge into one nation to that all whites would be killed and that the entirety of the Americas would only be for “indigenous peoples.”
Of course the haters shouting all of this had European Spanish blood coursing through their veins.
In parts two and three, I will detail the long trail of horrors that I witnessed as well as posting a lengthy video report documenting our claims. We have ten hours of footage from four cameras, which includes people frothing and screaming racist comments and then calling us racists for saying that we should all live together in peace.
Near the end of the melee, one of my Hispanic friends walked over to me and began pointing out people wearing shirts promoting the author of the Plan of San Diego. Another friend who has taken Latin-American studies pointed out another shirt directly mentioning the Plan of San Diego.
Folks, every time I think I know everything about Texas history, I learn how ignorant I am. I asked my friends what the Plan of San Diego was and they told me that it was a plan in Northern Mexico and throughout the Southwest hatched in 1915 that called for the genocide of all white males over 16.
I’ve known my friends for many years, but I couldn’t believe them. I got home and spent three hours on the Internet at the University of Texas’ historical website, at other universities’ websites in Mexico and Illinois, and on the website of the Hispanic Historical Society.
What I learned chilled me. They didn’t just write up a plan, they acted upon it, killing at least 21 white males in South Texas in cold-blooded murder. We’re talking helter-skelter, Charlie Manson-type cold-blooded murder of random white ranchers and farmers: cornering people and hacking them up.
I then found websites making excuses for it by saying, “well, whites did this to natives…” Yes they did. Select military units did, which should have been brought to justice for their actions. And I’ve spoken out against them, be it at Wounded Knee or in Waco.
Think about it: full-grown adult men with their families wearing shirts calling for the killing of all white males above 16. Will there be a genetic test? Will Hispanics who are more than half white be killed? How far will this racial state go?
This is the nightmare of tribalism. As this intensifies it’s only going to create friction on both sides. None of us are going to be safe, whether we’re from India, Mexico or Germany.
Speaking of Germany, the German government got wind of the plan of San Diego, endorsed it in 1917 and attempted to fund an insurrection in the United States during WWI. The same thing happened during WWII.
According to Hispanic Historical Society’s website, throughout most of early Texas history, Hispanics and whites got along wonderfully (this is obvious as many of the founders of Texas and its solders were Tejano) but after repeated wars and skirmishes with Mexico and the increased publicity of the plan of San Diego a racist sentiment against innocent Hispanics exploded.
We cannot let that happen here. We have got to get the Hispanic community to expose these vipers in their midst. The Federal government, in the name of “keeping us all safe from each other,” would love to use something like this as an excuse to set up an incredibly powerful police state.
I don’t want Hispanics looking at whites with fear, nor do I want whites looking at Hispanics with fear. We’re all human beings. Empires have always sought to "divide and conquer" their populations to manipulate.
The reconquista movement has big corporate funding. In almost every case we’ve researched, rich white men are behind the neo-Aztec movement. One businessman in California bought almost 700 signs telling the public that Los Angeles is now Mexico. This is an attempt to create false pride by which people can be easily steered.
Part Two coming soon.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Originally applied to the 700 year effort to retake Iberia from the Islamic Moors, Reconquista today refers to an explicit agenda of M.E.Ch.A. (Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan) to retake lands from the U.S. which once belonged to Mexico. This would include Texas, California, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Utah and parts of Colorado, Wyoming, Kansas, and Oklahoma, all of which were ceded by Mexico under terms of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo in 1848.
The primary method for this 'reconquest' is demographic. By means of legal and illegal immigration from Mexico and Central America, and by means of high birthrates among non-White Hispanics, the non-non-White Hispanic population will be reduced to a minority which can be voted out of power and influence. While nominally nonviolent this will force African-Americans, Asian-Americans, Native-Americans and European-Americans out of what will be called Aztlan.
Reconquista is not integrationist or assimilationist, but rather is separatist and explicitly racial. M.E.Ch.A.'s motto translates as, 'Everything for the race. Nothing outside the race.'
MEChA: Racists, Selfish, Jealous
The racist and anti-semitic roots of MEChA’s ideology
The Irvine Review | March 7, 2005
by Kristen Lucero
It is true, racism happens, life is not fair, and ignorant people can be blinded by the color of someone’s skin. However, when a particular group of people feel they have been discriminated against and they act foolishly and emotionally on their feelings, it is easy to be just as guilty of racism as the group that first committed it. MEChA, which stands for Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlán (the Chicano student movement of Aztlán), is a Chicano student group on campus whose roots go back to the 1960’s to the time of the start of the Chicano movement. Across California and several other states, MEChA is a strong nationalist group that openly endorses hate and discrimination against whites and Jews. MEChA discriminates against white people just as badly as they claim to be discriminated against. However, not only are they a racist group, they are selfish because they care only about the well-being of those select few that abide by the Chicano philosophy, and they are jealous of the success of others who have done well for themselves (including Hispanics).
There are a few goals and principles that MEChA ascribes to, according to their founding documents (EL Plan Espiritual de Aztlán, El Plan de Santa Barbara and the Philosophy of MEChA), including the recapture of “Aztlán” or in actuality all the land Mexico lost way back in the Mexican-American War. MEChA somehow feels they are being denied land that they already live in, in a country of which they are citizens. Somehow, giving this land back to a foreign country that lost it hundreds of years ago in a war is going to make it theirs. Besides the delusional goal of the recovery of their “homeland” MEChA would like for the government to take care of their daily needs. They believe that the institutions should give them everything they need to have a “full life”, in other words they want to be taken care of. It is exactly this mentality that has suppressed the Chicano people, not the “evil white man”. Expecting the government to take care of them and give them everything they need is not only lazy but extremely foolish.
Another one of their major goals is the advancement of their political party La Raza Unida (RUP) which was founded by Jose Angel Gutierrez. Gutierrez is a professor at the University of Texas, Arlington, and is an extreme racist. He has been quoted making racists remarks such as, “We have got to eliminate the gringo (white man), and what I mean by that is if the worst comes to the worst we have got to kill him” (source: www.stoptheinvasion.com/racism5.html), and “Our devil has pale skin and blue eyes” (source:www.mayorno.com/villar.html). However, white American’s are not the only group being discriminated against by MEChA.
MEChA has a long history of being anti-Semitic and anti-Zionist, Starting back in the 80’s when the RUP leaders had a meeting with none other than Yasser Arafat in Beirut, Lebanon. Moreover, La Voz de Atzlán, their newspaper has taken an anti-Semitic stand over the years. In 2000, La Voz blamed the Jewish community for “corrupting democracy” and creating “Judenrats”. Judenrat is a term they coined to describe Hispanic politicians who are “owned by Jewish interests”. In an article entitled “La Raza and Jews on Collision Course in Alta California,” they claimed that Jew’s had a conspiracy to subjugate up and coming Latino political power, and that “the sectors that they (the Jews) cannot control directly, they will (control) indirectly through the purchase of influence as well as the cunning manipulation of ethnic and other minorities.” For some reason, every successful Latino that is not about to die for the cause of “La Raza” turns out to be controlled by the Jews, or so it is in the mind of MEChA. Their paper has suggested that successful Latinas become successful because of their relationships with Jewish men. UCI’s own version of the publication, La Voz Mestiza, is constantly putting down and rejecting Hispanics that are successful, yet not loyal to the cause by calling them “coconuts”, which is a Hispanic that is white on the inside, brown on the outside. In Winter 05’ Issue 2, of La Voz Mestiza in an article entitled “They Don’t Know, Who We Be!” they refer to “the coconut, managerial traitors who have already proudly flown their assimilationist banners against us,” and about how they should “let them grovel in that world; it is their penance for being chumps.” Essentially, for a Hispanic to assimilate into America, they must also be a traitor and a” chump” is MEChA’s view.
Perhaps there is a better explanation, however, for the “disloyalty” of many successful Latino people than that of Jewish control and of treason. Could it just be that the United States is a good place that gave many Latino people the chance to become successful, and, therefore, they have no reason to be disloyal to the U.S.? Could it just be that Mexico has never had anything to offer anyone except dirt and corruption? Could it just be that if you stop complaining long enough you would realize that there isn’t much for you to complain about? I am not saying the U.S. is perfect, I’m not saying our system is perfect, but it is the best there is, and people literally would and do die to get the chance to be here and have a shot at their dreams. Instead of trying to figuring out new and innovative ways to be oppressed, perhaps MEChA should just take a cue from the supposed “Judenrats” and be grateful for the chance to live in the greatest country on earth with some of the best opportunities Hispanic people have ever had.

Plan of San Diego
University of Texas' Handbook of Texas Online
by Don M. Coerver
With the outbreak of revolution in northern Mexico in 1910, federal authorities and officials of the state of Texas feared that the violence and disorder might spill over into the Rio Grande valley. The Mexican and Mexican-American populations residing in the Valley far outnumbered the Anglo population. Many Valley residents either had relatives living in areas of Mexico affected by revolutionary activity or aided the various revolutionary factions in Mexico. The revolution caused an influx of political refugees and illegal immigrants into the border region, politicizing the Valley population and disturbing the traditional politics of the region. Some radical elements saw the Mexican Revolution as an opportunity to bring about drastic political and economic changes in South Texas. The most extreme example of this was a movement supporting the "Plan of San Diego," a revolutionary manifesto supposedly written and signed at the South Texas town of San Diego on January 6, 1915. The plan, actually drafted in a jail in Monterrey, Nuevo León, provided for the formation of a "Liberating Army of Races and Peoples," to be made up of Mexican Americans, African Americans, and Japanese, to "free" the states of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, California, and Colorado from United States control. The liberated states would be organized into an independent republic, which might later seek annexation to Mexico. There would be a no-quarter race war, with summary execution of all white males over the age of sixteen. The revolution was to begin on February 20, 1915. Federal and state officials found a copy of the plan when local authorities in McAllen, Texas, arrested Basilio Ramos, Jr., one of the leaders of the plot, on January 24, 1915.
The arrival of February 20 produced only another revolutionary manifesto, rather than the promised insurrection. Similar to the original plan, this second Plan of San Diego emphasized the "liberation" of the proletariat and focused on Texas, where a "social republic" would be established to serve as a base for spreading the revolution throughout the southwestern United States. Indians were also to be enlisted in the cause. But with no signs of revolutionary activity, state and federal authorities dismissed the plan as one more example of the revolutionary rhetoric that flourished along the border. This feeling of complacency was shattered in July 1915 with a series of raids in the lower Rio Grande valley connected with the Plan of San Diego. These raids were led by two adherents of Venustiano Carranza, revolutionary general, and Aniceto Pizaña and Luis De la Rosa, residents of South Texas. The bands used the guerilla tactics of disrupting transportation and communication in the border area and killing Anglos. In response, the United States Army moved reinforcements into the area.
A third version of the plan called for the foundation of a "Republic of Texas" to be made up of Texas, New Mexico, California, Arizona, and parts of Mississippi and Oklahoma. San Antonio, Texas, was to serve as revolutionary headquarters, and the movement's leadership continued to come from South Texas. Raids originated on both sides of the Rio Grande, eventually assuming a pattern of guerilla warfare. Raids from the Mexican side came from territory under the control of Carranza, whose officers were accused of supporting the raiders. When the United States recognized Carranza as president of Mexico in October 1915, the raids came to an abrupt halt. Relations between the United States and Carranza quickly turned sour, however, amid growing violence along the border. When forces under another revolutionary general, Francisco (Pancho) Villa, attacked Columbus, New Mexico, in March 1916, the United States responded by sending a large military force under Gen. John J. Pershing into northern Mexico in pursuit of Villa. When the United States rejected Carranza's demands to withdraw Pershing's troops, fear of a military conflict between the United States and Mexico grew. In this volatile context, there was a renewal of raiding under the Plan of San Diego in May 1916. Mexican officials were even considering the possibility of combining the San Diego raiders with regular Mexican forces in an attack on Laredo. In late June, Mexican and United States officials agreed to a peaceful settlement of differences, and raids under the Plan of San Diego came to a halt.
The Plan of San Diego and the raids that accompanied it were originally attributed to the supporters of the ousted Mexican dictator Gen. Victoriano Huerta, who had been overthrown by Carranza in 1914. The evidence indicates, however, that the raids were carried out by followers of Carranza, who manipulated the movement in an effort to influence relations with the United States. Fatalities directly linked to the raids were surprisingly small; between July 1915 and July 1916 some thirty raids into Texas produced only twenty-one American deaths, both civilian and military. More destructive and disruptive was the near race war that ensued in the wake of the plan as relations between the whites and the Mexicans and Mexican Americans deteriorated in 1915-16. Federal reports indicated that more than 300 Mexicans or Mexican Americans were summarily executed in South Texas in the atmosphere generated by the plan. Economic losses ran into the millions of dollars, and virtually all residents of the lower Rio Grande valley suffered some disruption in their lives from the raids. Moreover, the plan's legacy of racial antagonism endured long after the plan itself had been forgotten.
