Overthrow of U.S. Govt. by Mexicans OK?
Conquest of Aztlan at heart of debate?
American Patrol Report -- March 18 
"Aztlan" DVD -- thousands were sold.
    Tomorrow a federal court will hear arguments to strike down Arizona's law ending Mexican American studies. The law includes the following language:
    A. A SCHOOL DISTRICT OR CHARTER SCHOOL IN THIS STATE SHALL NOT INCLUDE IN ITS PROGRAM OF INSTRUCTION ANY COURSES OR CLASSES THAT INCLUDE ANY OF THE FOLLOWING:
    1. PROMOTE THE OVERTHROW OF THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT.
A law professor's blog recently included the following exchange:
    Peterk says: "I notice that you forgot to mention the first item that the bill covers
    Promote the overthrow of the United States government. why did you leave that out?"
    Please see the Declaration of Independence (excerpt below), which would apparently be illegal to teach under this law, since the Declaration specifically states that, under certain circumstances, it is the "RIGHT of the people to alter or to abolish" "ANY form of government." The circumstances are when that government is "destructive" to "certain unalienable rights." This would manifestly include the US government (ANY form of government) should that government be deemed to be "destructive" to the rights in question.
    So, some believe that Mexicans have a right to overthrow the government of the United States. Is this why Glenn Spencer produced the Conquest of Aztlan DVD?
