Mexican Government Plans International Campaign Against Border Wall, Hires PR Firm

The Mexican government, angered by a U.S. proposal approved by the House of Representatives last week to set up a wall along the border to keep out illegal immigrants, said yesterday (December 20th) they'd fight to block the plan and organize an international campaign against it, including recruiting U.S. church, community and business groups. Mexican President Vicente Fox has previously denounced the wall proposal as, quote, "shameful," and many Mexicans, especially those who have spent time working in the U.S., feel it is a slap in the face to those who work hard and contribute to the U.S. economy.

The Mexican government has also hired Dallas-based public relations firm Allyn & Company to improve its image and counter growing U.S. concerns about immigration. Rob Allyn, president of the company, told AP, "If people in the U.S. and Canada had an accurate view of the success of democracy, political stability and economic prosperity in Mexico, it would improve their views on specific bilateral issues like immigration and border security."

I believe our fine neighbor to the south is a little nervous that his intravineous (?) flow of good old America green backs (that would cash) might be cut off.

Certianly his economy could not handle the poplulation growth if all of his citizens actually had to stay inside their own country.

I can only imagine how the main stream media and our favorite blogging neighbor jeb "i couldnt find the truth if it bit me in the ass" bush are going to pine on and on about how hate filled we are for trying to keep ILLEGAL (yes that means they are breaking the law) aliens out of our country.

Personally I still believe as I have stated before that impearlism is the way to go and we just make mexico our 51st state.

Dont they have oil down there south of the rio grande. Maybe somebody should let haliburton know so they can tell cheney so he can do the old run around (since he is running the country and not W) and than maybe we will declare war on mexico. since all wars that administraition starts is over oil.

Ok, ok, the Mexicans are worried about the truth of their country, so since they are so squared away they hire a U.S. advertising company? Hmmm. What are they going to do next? Boycott? With nearly 25% of their economy relying upon U.S. Dollars being sent home, guess they have reason to be scared. I could be wrong, as I've stated before about a wall not being built due to violations of the FTAA and U.N. Sustainable Development initiatives. The funny thing is even with a physical wall, the vehicles coming across the border are only inspected for road worthiness NOT the inside of the trailers. ...and to think, Mexico is governed by a 9% minority who can directly trace their lineage back to Spain. Aparteid? Institute an Oil for Illegals Program: 1 barrel of oil, everyday, for every Illegal in our country from Mexico. 15 million a day could DEFINITELY ease prices. Viola, our need for Saudi oil is further reduced.

No way! They'd be just like the Guamanians; they'd want complete autonomy to do as they please while expecting prompt aid payments and national defense provided by Washington.

They developed and cherish their degenerate culture; let them wallow in it until they understand that they need to change it themselves.

Hello again Voo Doo.
"The
CIA Factbook
claims that Mexico's 100 million people are 9% white, 60% mestizo, 30% Indian, and 1% other. These are fairly arbitrary estimates. It could be that some
of the whites and Indians are a little bit mixed, but not enough to show. Since Spaniards and Indians tend to share dark hair and dark eyes, and aren't
all that far apart in skin color, without DNA tests it's hard tell whether or not people who look pure Spanish or Indian aren't really slightly mixed."

...more?
Be safe.

The Wind from the South— Anti-White Populism

By
Steve Sailer

For several years, we have been pointing out that, despite rosy predictions that Latin American immigrants are
"natural Republicans,"
a mighty storm is brewing in Latin America—and that it will eventually reach the U.S.

Recently, even the Mainstream Media [MSM] has started to notice that something is going on down south.

In "
Indian movement seeks 'to expel white invasion,'"
Martin Arostegui wrote in the Washington Times (June 24):

"SANTA CRUZ, Bolivia -- A growing indigenous movement has helped topple successive governments in
Bolivia
and
Ecuador
and, angered by the
destruction of Andean coca crops,
now threatens the stability of other countries where Indians are in the majority. Drawing support from European leftists and Venezuelan President
Hugo Chavez,
the long-marginalized Indians are tasting political influence for the first time since the Spanish conquest and beginning to wrest power from
South America's white elites.
The leader of Bolivia's
Movement to Socialism party (MAS),
Evo Morales, talks about 'uniting Latin America's 135 Indian nations to expel the white invasion, which began with the landing of
Columbus
in 1492.'"

This marks a significant change. Latin American politics was long dominated by imported ideologies, such as
Marxism in the 1960s
and 1970s and laissez-faire in the 1990s. They were largely irrelevant because none of them dealt directly with Latin America's essential political problem:
the enduring racial conflict originating in the
Conquest
of a half millennium ago.

Traditionally, Latin America has had the worst economic disparities in the world. For example, the AP
recently reported
on a new study of
millionaires around the world.
In most regions, the average millionaire has a little over three million dollars in assets, but in Latin America, the typical millionaire has over twelve
million dollars.

In other words, while Latin America
isn't very rich,
the
rich in Latin America
have more money than God.

And, despite almost
500 years of intermarriage,
the economic elite remains strikingly whiter-looking, compared to the more Indian and/or black-looking people at the bottom. As Vicente Fox's former Foreign
Secretary Jorge Castaneda admitted in 1995, Mexico's ruling elite has been getting whiter. Many powerful men in Mexico and throughout Latin America had
recent ancestors who clawed their way up out of the darker masses. Over the generations, their descendents get whiter-looking as the
rich men
marry the fair-skinned and fair-haired women—who are, interestingly, still considered the
last word in beauty
in Latin America.

And it's not just skin color. The rich literally look down upon the poor.
President Fox,
for example, whose
paternal grandfather was an Irish-American,
is almost six and a half feet tall. He towers over George W. Bush. That makes Fox close to a foot taller than the average Mexican man.

In the past, these fundamental ethnic conflicts were typically furnished with an ideological façade. Remember the Shining Path rebels in
Peru?
They were always labeled "
Maoist"
in the American press, as if they were fighting and dying because they believed in the
backyard steel furnaces.

In reality, they were highland Indians rebelling against their economic domination by whites. But they featured a
white Marxist intellectual
as their leader, who put an ideological gloss on their struggle.

In 1989-1991, we saw the
"End of History,"
as Francis Fukuyama
famously put it.
Democratic capitalism was supposed to have definitively triumphed.

Somebody forgot to send History the memo. Still, Fukuyama wasn't completely wrong: what had changed was that people felt less need to dress up their struggles
for power in fine-sounding ideologies. History had reverted to what it always had been before the
French Revolution
made ideology au courant. As
Lenin
had said, the eternal question is:
"Who? Whom?"

The American media doesn't understand Latin America’s racial divisions—or
any racial divisions
for that matter—so it has had a hard time understanding
what has been going on in Latin America.

In some countries like Bolivia, the darker people are all Indians, justifying the term "indigenous movement."

But in Brazil, which
elected the leftist populist Lula,
non-indigenous blacks vastly outnumber Indians. Americans expect to find a color line, but there's only a
color continuum.
That makes it
confusing
even to name the opponents.

In most of these countries, there is a vast middle ground of
mestizos,
mulattos,
or tri-racial "pardos." But the American press isn't sure if it's even allowed to use those terms.

The simplest description of the uprisings is that they are "anti-white." But that's another term that the American media are ill at ease with.

And even that isn’t an exhaustive description, since leftists have been winning in
Argentina
and Uruguay, two countries that are more or less all white.

The trend toward racial conflict and leftist populism is particularly acute in northern South America, but populists have been winning elections throughout
much of Latin America.

This has caused trouble for President Bush, whose
family
has ties to Latin America's corrupt white elites going back 45 years. He has been giving fervent speeches about the all-around wonderfulness of democracy
in the Middle East. But his administration
supported the military coup against Chavez
in 2002, only to be embarrassed when it collapsed in the face of massive street protests.

Mexico has actually been a laggard in this anti-white populist trend. There, the ruling class has long paid lip service to the darker masses. Since 1928,
the Mexican government has officially celebrated every October 12 as the
"Day of The Race."
According to the
national ideology,
all Mexicans belong to "La Raza," that perfect combination of white and Indian traits that produces a superior
"cosmic race."
(The African contribution to Mexico's gene pool has been
dropped from the history books,
although it is probably around five percent.)

These fine words haven't made life terribly cosmic for
Mexico's poor.
But they may have helped Mexico avoid the brutal race war that
wracked neighboring Guatemala
in recent decades.

Yet the wind from the south is blowing in Mexico, too. Mexico’s right-of-center PAN party controls the all-important Presidency for another 18 months. PAN
was trounced in the 2003 midterm elections, and its outlook is poor for 2006's Presidential race.

The popular mayor of Mexico City,
Andrés Manuel López Obrador,
is likely to run for President on the
leftist PRD ticket
as the enemy of the
white elites.
His foes, such as President Fox, had him
briefly disqualified
on a technicality, but they broke down under popular pressure and rescinded the ruling.

Personally, I doubt that leftist ethnic populism will do the poor of Latin America much good. But, then, the Cold War is over and the
Evil Empire
is gone. They have a right to make their own mistakes.

For the U.S., domestically, the ongoing
racial radicalization
of the darker-skinned people of Latin America portends difficulties. The immigrant stream from Latin America is increasingly less white, as regions farther
south in Mexico are tapped. We are even seeing hundreds of thousands of pure Indians who speak
no Spanish.
Next year's Mexican election will be closely followed on Spanish-language television by tens of millions of immigrants in the U.S. And then this vast anti-white
movement might begin to surface here.

Already, there is a racial divide among Hispanics in the U.S. Those identifying themselves on the Census as
racially white
are more prosperous, more assimilated, and
more Republican
than those who identify themselves as racially "Other." (About half of Mexicans pick "Other" as their race because the Census doesn't allow respondents
to identify themselves as mestizo or as Indian unless they are American Indian.)

This anti-white movement in Latin America will likely make the less white Hispanics more resentful and hostile toward
non-Hispanic whites
in America.

This could set off massive social change.

Many affluent white supporters of illegal immigration in the U.S. see Hispanics as genetically programmed to be their docile, cheerfully subservient
maids
and
gardeners.

What is often forgotten is that their grandparents viewed blacks the same way. That's why corporations named famous food brands
"Uncle Ben" and "Aunt Jemima"
—the connotation was that by buying these products, you were virtually partaking of the rich man's luxury of having your own smiling, nodding black cook.

During the Black Pride movement of the 1960s, however, blacks came to resent
servant jobs.

And how much can you blame them? There's something that's just not very American about the master-servant relationship.

The downside, of course, was that when blacks turned against their old jobs, many ended up
resorting to crime
to make money.

Which is why wealthy Americans discovered illegal immigrant Hispanic service workers. They came to assume that it was the natural order of things for whites
to command Latinos.

I suspect that the anti-white movements in Latin America will, sooner or later, set off a revulsion among Hispanics in this country against servile jobs
roughly similar to the
Black Pride
reaction of the 1960s.

I wouldn't be terribly surprised if, in a generation, wealthy Americans are smugly assuming that their new
Indonesian
immigrant servants are naturally deferential—unlike those sullen,
crime-prone Latinos
they had to let go.

And perhaps in two generations, the rich will tell each other that their new Indian Untouchable immigrant servants are born knowing their place, unlike
those uppity Indonesians they had to fire.

Perhaps I'll be proved wrong.

But what if I’m not?

Shouldn't we at least be talking about these possibilities?

As always with American’s post 1965 Immigration Disaster: Why are we taking this risk?
