Fifth Column Takes Los Angeles

During the Spanish Civil War, Emilio Mola Vidal advanced on Madrid in four columns. He referred to his militant supporters within the city, who were busily weakening it from within, as his fifth column. On Tuesday Mexico's fifth column scored a major victory in Los Angeles, combining with loony-tunes liberals to elect Antonio Villaraigosa as mayor.

According to a gushing Los Angeles Times, Villaraigosa's election represents "a crowning symbol of Latinos' growing clout in California." A more accurate wording might be, "Mexico's growing clout" — or better, "Mexico's growing encroachment."

Villaraigosa is former Chairman of the UCLA chapter of MEChA, a racist and seditious group devoted to the "Reconquista" of the Southwestern United States. The Reconquista is going well for the Mexicans, as anyone aware of our government's outrageous refusal to defend the border will probably agree.

In closely related news, a 66-year-old woman suffered "inner cranial trauma" when she was assaulted for daring to protest the anti-American Danzas Indigenas monument in Baldwin Park, California, which features inscriptions in support of the notion that California should be ruled by Mexicans.

The unidentified woman was struck in the head by a bottle thrown by one of the 300 counter-protestors who showed up to intimidate the 25 supporters of Save Our State who were demonstrating against the taxpayer-financed sedition represented by the monument. Save Our State turnout was so low reportedly due to the fact that "many of those slated to attend canceled because they feared for their safety" — with good reason, it appears.

The counter-protestors expressed their civic-mindedness by kicking the American flag on the ground and shouting "profanities and racist remarks" at the Save Our State supporters.

In a foreshadowing of what Los Angeles is in for, Baldwin Park Mayor Manuel Lozano blamed Save Our State for the woman's injury, on the grounds that they should have known better than to let senior citizens come to an event that could become dangerous.


Sign of the times.
