MEChista madrassa at Tucson Magnet High School
Marxist agitator and pro-ILLEGAL alien activist Dolores Huerta was an invited guest speaker at a special assembly at Tucson High Magnet School the day after massive student walkouts in support of illegal aliens. Huerta was the co-founder, with Cesar Chavez, of the United Farm Workers Union and is one of the national leaders of the latest protests and rallies supporting illegal alients. During her speech Huerta told many outright lies without being challenged by school officials or students. She even went so far as to state such outrageous things as "We didn't cross the border. The border crossed us" and "Republicans hate Latinos!". All without any opposition from the school administration.
The school has posted the audio of the inflammatory speech wherein Huerta praised student walkouts on the Tucson High Magnet School website at http://quill.tusd.k12.az.us/doloreshuertaaddress.
Arizona State Rep. Jonathan Paton appeared on KOLD 13 TV tonight about this outrage. He sent the school the following letter:
It has come to my attention from students and employees that disturbing events are occurring at Tucson Unified School District.
For that reason, I am seeking answers to several key questions to determine the veracity of these reports.
At the March 29 and 30 rallies, it is alleged that TUSD provided transportation for students who attended the gathering. Expending taxpayer money for political events presents a troubling development in TUSD's mission to educate children.
Also, during a school assembly, an activist spouted political propaganda at Tucson High School while also encouraging students to skip class to class to attend immigration rallies in Downtown Tucson. This is equally disconcerting
I am requesting the following information:
Did TUSD pay for buses or personnel to transport students to or from the rallies in Downtown Tucson on March 29 and 30?
If yes, how much did the district expend for the event?
Did bus drivers receive overtime to transport these students?
If district-supplied busses were used, what prompted the district to provide transportation?
Was there a plan in place prior to the student walkout to transport them back to campus after the rally?
Was Dolores Huerta paid to speak at Tucson High School on April 3?
Did district officials ask that she refrain from political hate speech?
After she began a political diatribe, which included "Republicans hate Latinos. Republicans hate Latinos," why did Tucson High officials allow her to continue her speech?
Was the assembly mandatory for students ?
What options were provided to students who opted against attending the assembly?
Why is her speech posted on the TUSD website?
I look forward to receiving the requested information by April 13, 2006, and look forward to resolving this issue as soon as possible. Thank you in advance for your cooperation in this matter. This public records request seems more civil than the myriad of unpleasantries associated with the provisions of Title 41, Chapter 7, Article 4 of the Arizona Revised Statutes and I hope we can resolve this in a timely matter.
The Tucson Unified School District provided busses to transport students to and/or from the pro-illegal alien rallies held in Tucson last week.
The students were told that the assembly was not mandatory. Those students who did not want to attend were told that they had to sit in the library. However, when those students got to the library it was locked up and they had to attend the assembly. Those students offended by the content of the assembly were forced to stay there.
The Teenage Republicans, last week, had put up a bunch of Be American! Vote Republican! signs in the school. The school administrators forced them to take them down because they were too "inflammatory".
The bus drivers were paid overtime for carting the Aztlan protestors around. One busdriver stated that he received 20 hours of overtime pay for this.
One of the Committees in the Arizona House of Representatives WILL be subpoenaing people and they WILL be holding hearings on this. They intend to get to the bottom of this and hold the school accountable for their misuse of taxpayer funds, their bias, their choice of speakers and the content of the speech, and the indoctrination that they're engaging in. Heads are going to roll.
The High School has a very active Movimento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan (MEChA) chapter and it was likely this radical racist reconquista organization that sponsored Huerta's appearance there. Who is MEChA? The group's logo is an eagle holding a stick of dynamite in its beak with a lit fuse and a macahuitl (the obsidian blade-studded Aztec war club) in its talons.
Their motto is (translated), "Everything for the race. Outside the race, nothing." (Por La Raza todo. Fuera de La Raza nada.)
The MEChA Constitution says (Article II, section 1): "General membership shall consist of any student who accepts, believes and works for the goals and objectives of MEChA, including the liberation of AZTLAN, meaning self-determination of our people in this occupied state and the physical liberation of our land."
They follow the "Spiritual Plan of Aztlan" (El Plan Espiritual de Aztlan) which says:
"In the spirit of a new people that is conscious not only of its proud historical heritage but also of the brutal "gringo" invasion of our territories, we, the Chicano inhabitants and civilizers of the northern land of Aztlán from whence came our forefathers, reclaiming the land of their birth and consecrating the determination of our people of the sun, declare that the call of our blood is our power, our responsibility, and our inevitable destiny. "
KOLD TV 13 in Tucson will be covering this story again tonight in more depth but don't assume that they'll go very far.
