Ever wonder what the source of the obvious enmity between Anglos and anyone of color but especially Hispanics is?
Publishing this blog entry wasn’t a certainty. But there’s so much negativity and diatribe about “illegals” that I felt compelled to publish. There are far too many bigots, racists and xenophobes in this nation of “immigrants” for me to ignore. The consequences of their fear and loathing are affecting our way of life.
The occupied lands of the Mesoamerican, this part known as Texas, are and have been very much lands of oppressor and oppressed.
Suzerainty is a way of life, a mindset among the majority population in Texas Red. Since arriving under the guise of peaceful pioneers white settlers sought to dominate, occupy, then enslave, and since to do whatever it takes to “doggedly cling to power” and demonize “federal government interference” with Anglo oppression of people of color and pollution of the environment.
What does this have to do with elections or public policy? Everything. It is what has created this “cratered landscape of prisons, deplorable apartheid public education, lack of access to affordable healthcare and politicians and majority population intent on keeping it that way.”
To better understand it it is necessary to take a step or two back.
Five hundred years ago when England and Europe were economically stagnated, environmentally polluted, monarch infested, religiosity constrained and yearning to develop the merchant class they looked west.
Of these groups I term, Euro-Anglo-Jews who immigrated to the New World, (the Western Hemisphere), it was mostly those from England, Ireland and other lands of that very white part of the world who landed at and occupied predominantly the top half of North America.
Those who had circumnavigated the globe, explored and exploited, dominated and oppressed the “Third World” were largely European, of Spanish and Portuguese heritage.
That group found places to occupy and exploit in the lands south of el Rio Grande but not exclusively so. That includes the western end and southern half of North America, Mexico, the Isthmus that connects the northern and southern halves of the Western Hemisphere, and what is now termed South America.
Both sets of people brought African slaves to the New World. Both sets exploited the indigenous peoples and the slaves they imported. All three components of the Wholly Trinity (governance, big business and organized religion) exploited African slaves and the indigenous people from whom the Euro-Anglo-Jew stole land, natural resources, a way of life, culture, customs and traditions.
Little in life is absolute, linear or dichotomous. So there was plenty of mixing but on the main that is where Euro-Anglo-Jews migrated. Wherever they may have chosen to occupy this group, the Euro-Anglo-Jew spread across the entire Western Hemisphere from what we now call Canada to Tierra del Fuego. They were and are the same people, Euro-Anglo-Jews, on both sides of the natural occurrence, el Rio Grande. The only difference being that for centuries the majority population predominantly but not exclusively north of the river has Anglo and south of the river Euro-Jew, predominantly but not exclusively Spanish and Portuguese. By not exclusively I mean that for example that for example only in Israel is there a larger concentration of Israeli Jews than in Argentina.
Whether you watch Spanish language news or novelas the people you are watching are Euro-Anglo-Jews. You will seldom see “Mesoamericans” or other indigenous peoples in positions of power. Turn the volume down on the TV and if you didn’t know the players were “Hispanic” and couldn’t hear the voices you would be hard pressed to distinguish them from ‘mericans.
The lands predominantly west of the Mississippi River, particularly in what is known as Texas became a vortex of cultures, languages, traditions and customs, of the indigenous, the Euro-Jews, Anglos (white people), and African slaves. With whites, Anglos, comprising through their own artificial devices the majority population.
The Mexicans were that part of the indigenous population, living West of the Mississippi River in Mesoamerica. They lived along side other indigenous peoples who populated the entire Western Hemisphere. Indigenous peoples and African slaves alike were exploited with a great deal of zeal by the Euro-Anglo-Jew, the compassionate conservative Christians and religiosities who settled both sides of el Rio Grande.
The history that spilled out over the next five hundred years on both sides of el Rio Grande was brutal, savage, violent and tragic particularly in the vortex of the Southwest.
What the less tolerant, some would say racist and/or xenophobic members of the U.S. population call “illegals” or Mexicans are the natives of this land called Texas which five hundred years ago was also Mexico. They are the original inhabitants of these lands. Ironically, Anglos, compassionate conservative Christians and the just plain xenophobic occupiers refer to them as “illegals.”
Those who control, dominate and exploit what is termed Mexico are the descendants of Euro-Anglo-Jews who began migrating to the Western Hemisphere five centuries ago. They are little more than long-term occupiers. Those occupiers berate, belittle and bemoan the original inhabitants of these lands on both sides of el Rio Grande. Interestingly, the Euro-Anglo-Jews treat the indigenous of these lands much as Israelis treat Palestinians. It is a matter of power.
It is just not possible to understand where "we the people" are today in terms of public policy, our elections and politics without understanding or at least knowing of the history that got us here.
Think: Smegol, Gollum and Precious. Power is addictive, over-powering, irresistible. I want to believe we are more but I know that regardless who possesses it, power does not give. Power does not share. Power does not relent. There is no such thing as a bloodless revolution. There is no such thing as the peaceful transition of power. Power corrupts. That’s a promise. But I do want to believe....
