University of Oregon: let Mexico annex it

How did Oregon get so lucky? Our very own Unviversity of Oregon is hosting this years National MEChA conference this weekend. What is MEChA you ask? According to the U of O page:

Chicano is our identity; it defines who we are as people. It rejects the notion that we are an insignificant minority group that should assimilate into the Anglo-American melting pot of materialism, greed, and intolerance upon us. It is a symbol of Resistance as well as a symbol of Unity amongst Mexicanos, Salvadorenos, Chilenos, Puerto Ricennos, Cubanos, and all other Raza.

It became synonymous with the vast territories of the Southwest, brutally stolen from a Mexican people marginalized and betrayed by the hostile custodians of the Manifest Destiny.

But will the conference at our state University be all about racism and taking back the American southwest? Hardly. Imagine these exciting speakers:

Paulina Hernandez is a queer femme cha-cha girl, artist, political organizer & trouble-maker-at-large from Veracrúz, Mexico.

Anita Tijerina Revilla is an assistant professor in Women’s Studies at University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

Butchlalis de Panochtitlan is a trio that has emerged from community based activist spaces to create visibility . They explore identity and its consequence while mapping the city we live in on the brown female masculine bodies they walk in...

But I'm sure that this conference will involve reputable people who are intent on following the law right? According to the official Principles of Unity for the conference:

We realize that the use of alcohol and drugs outside of conference activities is the responsibility of each individual and their pertaining chapter. However Aztlan del Noroeste asks that you maintain respect for our community and others.

So make sure that you are "respectful" if your particular chapter enjoys recreational narcotics.

I'm glad that everyone has the freedom to assemble in this country. I don't care if these people want to get together and hate American materialism. I just wish that there would be some public scorn directed towards this racist and revolutionary group.

Instead the university and local media will give them a pass.

MECHa loosely translated means, spirited movement for Chicanos' of ATZLAN.

Yes YOUR College is using your money to Brainwash our youth to support the reconquest of the American S.W.

College tuition is going up so you can continue to fund Treasonist activities right in your own town, suckers.

So, let's here the excuses from the far left crowd as to why this is a good thing and should not be stopped.

Your tax collectors and spenders laugh at your apathy. I do not.

"Illegal aliens," "racist," and "revolutionary." So long as we're talking about someone from south of the border, Miglavs will find some reason to diss them. Interesting that it works out that way. Convenient.

I just sent Mecha a $100 donation last month. Sounds like I should have doubled it. Looks like the organization is doing a great job. Thanks for the info.

I'm so grateful our lab moved to Springfield. Now I don't need to put up with all the crap at the U of O.

Here's an idea. Why not attend the conference? Let the people know why you find their group offensive...to their faces.

I like to go to activities like this, I do let them know what I think, to their faces. What cha gonna do? Domestic terrorists, thats all they are, and need to be treated as such.

I love this statement:
However Aztlan del Noroeste asks that you maintain respect for our community and others.

How about respecting our fucking laws? Oh that's right, criminal aliens and their supporters don't need no stinking laws.

What a crock of crap. Time to round them up and ship them out. That would provide jobs for Americans. Doing the deporting the illegals won't.

I think hell has frozen over.
At least Oregon has. I cannot wait until we have eighty degree weather. I'm hoping more Oregonians and Americans will demand those jobs.

An accusation of "domestic terrorists" directed at Mexicans ... posted on the blog of a guy posing with a rifle. Welcome to Miglavia ... a never-ending source of unintentional comedy.

The media fails to cover any UO news in any real way. They just parrot press releases. This is why UO is overpriced and falling apart.

Why is it that when their side talks about following the law, it's "... is the responsibility of each individual and their pertaining chapter. However Aztlan del Noroeste asks that you maintain respect for our community and others."

But when our side does the same thing (like, immigration law), it's "hate speech"?
