In part one we presented evidence suggesting the Minutemen project was being radicalized by white supremacists and certain leading lights in the power elite. This radicalization process is meant to undermine efforts to restore America’s border integrity and to manufacture a politically expedient race war. Radicalized border activists and Chicano radicals are being set up to enter into conflict with one another. California seems to be the ideal staging grounds for the beginning of this conflict.
Ground Zero: California
The most likely place for a race war to begin is California. It is in this state that two individuals possessing radical racist views have risen to political power. These individuals will be able to mobilize the different racist groups for a confrontation. They are Los Angeles mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Antonio Villaraigosa would lead the Mexican racists’ charge. Roger D. McGrath describes Villaraigosa’s racist background:
Antonio Villaraigosa was known as Tony Villar when he was growing up on the Eastside. (He combined his surname with that of his wife, Corina Raigosa, to create the last name he uses now.) As Villar, he attended East Los Angeles Junior College and then transferred to UCLA in 1972 under an “affirmative action” program. By the time he left UCLA in 1975, he had not graduated but had risen to a position of leadership in the campus chapter of Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan, better known by its acronym, MEChA. The group was organized in 1969 by Mexican-American college students, for the most part, who preferred to call themselves Chicanos and Chicanas. MEChA proudly proclaims that its mission is to reclaim California and the rest of the Southwest—an area MECha calls Aztlan—from “the foreigner ‘gabacho’ who exploits our riches and destroys our culture… [W]e declare the independence of our mestizo nation. We are a bronze people with a bronze culture. Before the world, before all of North America, before all our brothers in the bronze continent, we are a nation, we are a union of free pueblos, we are Aztlan.” (12)
