Memo from Mexico: Allan Wall examines the various foreign separatist movements threatening the USA

You Say You Want A Reconquista?

By Allan Wall

Is reconquista for real? Are there really ethnic separatist movements in the United States today?

Some people scoff at the whole idea, confident that all immigrants will assimilate, and don’t want to turn the U.S. into the country from whence they came.

Others write off any talk about reconquista as a right-wing anti-immigrant fantasy.

More people are waking up, however, to see that there is more afoot than simply the isolated rantings of some radical professors (which  is certainly part of it.)

Some rather concrete incidents are helping to wake people up. Such as the raising of the Mexican flag at the Montebello High School. Or the signs borne by marchers in pro-illegal alien demonstrations, signs that read “If you think I’m illegal because I’m a Mexican learn the true history because I’m in my homeland”, “This is stolen land”, “Stolen Continent” and “We are indigenous! The only owners of this continent.”

The sheer arrogance and hubris of anti-American irredentists is alerting more and more Americans to the fact that, yes, there are people within our borders who don’t want to be part of the U.S., who think they have a better claim on the land than we do, and who aren’t too secretive about it.

But, what did we expect? You import millions of people from Mexico, the only country with an irredentist claim on the U.S.A . Then you encourage them not to assimilate. And, when they break your immigration law, you give them an amnesty. Our leaders invited this, and promoted it.

There really are irredentist/revanchist sentiments in among Mexicans in the U.S.A., and this is bound to grow and get worse. It will make Canada’s Quebec problem look trivial by comparison. (more….)
