There is already plenty of evidence that, under Obama, Eric Holder’s Justice Department has implemented clear policies of racial politics. The obvious case is that of the New Black Panther Party, where illegal voter intimidation by the militant group–caught on videotape for all to see–was dismissed without even a slap on the wrist for the perpetrators or the organization of which they were members.
In his book, Injustice: Exposing the Racial Agenda of the Obama Justice Department, whistleblower J. Christian Adams tells the inside story of how Eric Holder’s Justice department spiked the lawsuit against the New Black Panther Party, partly as a protection measure to insulate President Obama. Obama had made a public appearance with leaders of the New Black Panther Party, and the DOJ dropped the “slam-dunk” case in order to protect Obama from obvious (and valid) criticisms.
As Texas Rep. John Culberson said in a 2011 appropriations hearing: “There’s clearly evidence, overwhelming evidence, that your Department of Justice refuses to protect the rights of anybody other than African Americans to vote…. There’s a pattern of a double standard here.” Holder, of course, denied the accusations.
President Obama is at it again.
This is from yesterday’s White House announcement:
Today, January 10th, the White House announced that current Director of Intergovernmental Affairs Cecilia Muñoz will now serve as the Director of the Domestic Policy Council. Ms. Munoz [sic] will coordinate the policy-making process and supervise the execution of domestic policy in the White House.
Just in case you’ve never heard of Cecilia Muñoz, she’s the former senior vice president of the National Council of La Raza. The group, whose name means “The Race,” styles itself as the “largest national Hispanic civil rights and advocacy organization in the United States.”
Michelle Malkin, herself the perennial target of racism from the left, did a great job of explaining exactly what La Raza stands for:
15. “The Race” supports driver’s licenses for illegal aliens.
14.”The Race” demands in-state tuition discounts for illegal alien students that are not available to law-abiding U.S. citizens and law-abiding legal immigrants.
13. “The Race” vehemently opposes cooperative immigration enforcement efforts between local, state, and federal authorities.
12. “The Race” opposes a secure fence on the southern border.
11. “The Race” joined the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee in a failed lawsuit attempt to prevent the feds from entering immigration information into a key national crime database — and to prevent local police officers from accessing the data.
10. “The Race” opposed the state of 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” joined other open-borders, anti-assimilationists and sued to prevent Proposition 227, California’s bilingual education reform ballot initiative, from becoming law.
8. “The Race” bitterly protested common-sense voter ID provisions as an “absolute disgrace.”
7. “The Race” has consistently 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. “The Race” also pioneered Orwellian open-borders Newspeak and advised the Mexican government on how to lobby for illegal alien amnesty while avoiding the terms “illegal” and “amnesty.”
5. “The Race” gives mainstream cover to a poisonous subset of ideological satellites, led by Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan, or Chicano Student Movement of Aztlan (MEChA). The late GOP Rep. Charlie Norwood rightly characterized the organization as “a radical racist group … one of the most anti-American groups in the country, which has permeated U.S. campuses since the 1960s, and continues its push to carve a racist nation out of the American West.”
4. “The Race” is currently leading 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 — in addition to pushing for Fairness Doctrine policies to shut up their foes. The New York Times reported that current “Race” president Janet Murguia believes “hate speech” should “not be tolerated, even if such censorship were a violation of First Amendment rights.”
3. “The Race” sponsors militant ethnic nationalist charter schools subsidized by your public tax dollars (at least $8 million in federal education grants). The 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, whose 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 perfected the art of the PC 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 elite sheeple’s unwillingness to call it what it is. As 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.”
True to form, Muñoz seems to be cut from La Raza cloth. She once referred to Tea Party activists and other border-enforcement proponents as “the xenophobic wing” of the Republican Party. She refused to accept “enforcement only” approaches to immigration, even though it’s been clear all along that most of us are promoting “enforcement first,” not “enforcement only.”
Just this morning, it was announced that the Tucson Unified School District would finally disable its “Mexican-American Studies” program, which had continued to run in spite of the fact that it was clearly in violation of state law that prevented programs that offered “one or more classes designed primarily for one ethnic group, promoting racial resentment and advocating ethnic solidarity.” This was only possible when the state superintendent made the gutsy move of partially de-funding the district until it complied with the law. The is the type of program Muñoz and others at La Raza have supported, in order to indoctrinate Hispanic youngsters and make them stand separate from the American mainstream.
According to the official White House press release, Muñoz “leads the Administration’s efforts to fix the broken immigration system.” I think we can all anticipate that this woman will not be addressing the Administration’s paltry efforts to fix our porous southern border, to stem the identity theft and other crimes by illegal aliens or to capture criminal aliens already within our country. There is no indication of whether she will continue to support the Administration’s lawsuits against states that pass laws meant to fix the problems caused by the federal government’s refusal to enforce America’s sovereignty–but that seems to be a sure bet.
I think Americans will find it more difficult to work towards achieving a color-blind society people like Muñoz and Holder in such key positions in government. Both seem to advocate more racial preferences, not less.
Just what we need … another racemonger in the White House. But it looks like we’re stuck with her.
