A student group at the University of New Mexico hopes to celebrate Indigenous ‘Peoples’ Resistance and Resilience Day’, according to Campus Reform. It will be up to the university as to whether it becomes a reality, but students are allegedly supportive.
It’s a day for all the people who hate America or want to take it over, like the gentleman below.
My guess is some far-left professor(s) are instigators in this one.
Wiki has comments by a former and a current Atzlan – Reconquista – professor at the University of New Mexico who might be pleased by all this.
Professor Charles Truxillo of the University of New Mexico (UNM) envisions a sovereign Hispanic nation called the República del Norte (Republic of the North) that would encompass the Northern Mexico, Baja California, California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas and southern Colorado.
He taught Hispanic studies at UNM’s Chicano Studies Program on a yearly contract and saidin an interview that “Native-born American Hispanics feel like strangers in their own land. We remain subordinated. We have a negative image of our own culture, created by the media. Self-loathing is a terrible form of oppression. The long history of oppression and subordination has to end” and that “Along both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border “there is a growing fusion, a reviving of connections…. Southwest Chicanos and Norteño Mexicanos are becoming one people again.”” Truxillo stated that Hispanics who have achieved positions of power or otherwise are “enjoying the benefits of assimilation” are most likely to oppose a new nation, explaining that “There will be the negative reaction, the tortured response of someone who thinks, ‘Give me a break. I just want to go to Wal-Mart.’ But the idea will seep into their consciousness, and cause an internal crisis, a pain of conscience, an internal dialogue as they ask themselves: ‘Who am I in this system?”’
He is fine with violence apparently because he said – whatever it takes.
Also from Wiki, Felipe Gonzáles, a professor at the University of New Mexico (UNM), who is director of UNM’s Southwest Hispanic Research Institute, has stated that while there is a “certain homeland undercurrent” among New Mexico Hispanics, the “educated elites are going to have to pick up on this idea [of a new nation] and run with it and use it as a point of confrontation if it is to succeed.”
Back to the student group. They want to “show our school’s understanding and support of all students, and to remember that, even through these events in the past, the indigenous peoples have stood strong in the face of so many hardships.”
In other words, Americans are horrible people who stole land from indigenous people. One problem is many of the indigenous people they’re talking about aren’t descended from real indigenous people.
Many of the indigenous people are actually the descendants of Spanish Conquistadors.
These are the same people who are trying to get rid of Columbus Day and replace it with Indigenous People Day. If they get to abolish Columbus Day, more holidays will follow. They’ve already transformed Washington’s birthday into the anonymous President’s Day; they’ve added labor day – reminiscent of the Marxist International Workers’ day; and they are striving to have a national holiday in honor of a Marxist union leader – Cesar Chavez – whose accomplishments are sketchy at best.
Seattle and Minneapolis recognize the second Monday in October as “Indigenous People’s Day”.
The U.N. celebrates International Day of the World’s Indigenous People on August 9th each year to promote and protect the rights of the world’s indigenous population. That’s not a joke. They’re serious. The U.N. is comprised of dictators and statists who protect no one’s rights.
Without realizing it, the student group is going to promote diversity by supporting anti-Americanism.
