Bill Richardson Becomes Richardson Lopez

Bill Richardson, governor of New Mexico, and open borders advocate, has decided to run for President and Richardson wants to make sure all Hispanics know the last name of his mother is Lopez.

"I am saying 'It's Bill Richardson Lopez and I am one of you and I would like you to consider me, not because I am Hispanic but because I have the best program for the country'," he told Reuters in an interview late on Monday.

He wants Hispanics to vote for him because he's Hispanic (or at least half Hispanic). But he doesn't want to admit this.

But he figures he has a good chance because he can do well the states with lots of Hispanics since Hispanics will prefer to vote for one of their own.

"If I am able to make a dent in states like California, Texas and Florida with large Latino populations, I am going to be a factor in this race," he said.

This is racial politics early in the 21st century. It is going to get a lot worse. The racial groups will vote for members of their tribes. They'll do this for two reasons. First, they'll feel more trust and affection toward members of their race. Second, members of their race will pursue policies that are more appealing to members of their race than to members of other races.

This is Balkanization. Some day will another country station peace keeping troops in America the same way the United States stations troops in the Balkans?

What is especially astonishing is the audacity with which he makes these overtures of racial solidarity--on the same day he also boasts of being the Presidential candidate who can bring people together, unite the country, etc etc.

Worse than this, could be the pattern in which one can note that officials and academics are thrilled by,
and actively try to import as many balkanizers as they can get away with.
They know that it moves always closer towrds the point where sovereignty is the only issue;
as in Europe with the Basques or the Islamic colonies.
To get maximum power you need at least two populations in a polity which has become ungovernable democratically,
as there is no issue but that of sovereignty between the two or more hostile groups.
Immigrationism here is by now, very largely a push towards that outcome.

Hmmm....Sri Lanka all over again?
But when it comes right down to it. Neither hispanics nor Blacks can beneficially secede from Whites. Asians are a minor non-issue imo. Hispanics and Blacks benefit by basically stealing from whites.

I doubt this would be enough to stop them though. Africa is one case after another of Blacks throwing out Whites and then facing Mass Starvation and Genocide.

I rather wonder about the Tamils and Sinhalese in Sri Lanka though. Lots of fascinating questions unanswered in the world.

I hate to pontificate (suppressed smile), but isn't all of this in direct contravention of the ideals and principles enshrined by the USA's founding fathers in the Constitution, and other documents dating from the revolution.
Weren't the founding fathers attempting to found a state based on the highest principles of the Enlightenment and 18th century philosophical rationalism and idealism?
Weren't they most consciously trying to break away from the nasty feudalism, inherited tribalism - including legal inenqualities between 'nobility' and 'commons'and all the other rotteness that characterized the nations of Europe of that period?
Why is this Lopez gentleman trying to institutionalize ethnic and social division in America?

In other words, people vote their interests. Welcome to democracy. Have a look around and enjoy.

Who needs Bill Richardson/Lopez? If some hispanic guy in NM was smart, he'd run against him in the next election and say something like, "My name is Jesus Gonzalez, a real hispanic, not a poser like this Richardson asshole!" of course maybe when Mexico takes de facto control over Neuvo Mexico, he'll get to keep his job (but I doubt it).

As for Mensarefugee's point about the black/hispanic population needing whites, you bet. Without slobs like myself to pay for the free school lunches, medical care, after school basketball, AA, spinners and stupid, loud mufflers for their cars, they'll starve (hopefully). If the chinese take over, maybe there will be an up side, they will not put up with whiny demands from the usual parasites. of course, I'll have to learn Manadrin and for me the prospects don't look good. I could barely get a C to finally pass Italian in college. But then again, maybe a little asian discipline and work ethic is what I need!

That is, welcome to multicultural democracy. Except, of course, that whites aren't supposed to vote their own racial interests. That would be racist.

Like the current Iraq adventure, the Mexican war simply morphed from a military campaign into an insurgency. That said, the mexicans seem to be using a catholic inspired out-breed-them strategy rather than the out-die-them strategy preferred by muslims.

The answer is to return New Mexico, California and Texas to its rightful owner.

John S Bolton said at May 24, 2007 11:20 PM:

Return them to their rightful posession by American citizens, by running the illegals out over several years.

That would be Spain, not Mexico.

Bullseye.

Stephen,

You mean of course the Navajo, Tohono O'odham, Pima, Apache, and Hopi?

Surely then you stand with me in opposing the invasion of these lands by the Aztecs and several other Mexican Indian tribes that are overrunning the lands of the Chumash and Mojave and Zuni and Yuma.
