Jerry is running, and he is running his mouth

Original post made by jimf01, another community, on Jun 11, 2010

Not McNerney today, but our ex Governor Jerry Brown. The ex-mayor of Oakland was out for a run the other day and ran into a KCBS reporter. Unprompted, he compared his GOP rival to a Nazi propagandist

Brown is right. You Tea Party white nationalist have a lot in common with Nazis. You hate everything that is different from your whitebred, evangelical views. The "purity tests" used by the Tea Party and Republicans is a great example of cultist, Nazi-like behavior.

I wish people here would study history. The NAZI party is the National Socialist German Workers' Party. Jerry and the crazies running Sacramento are closer to being Socialists than any of the Tea Party people. I don't agree with either groups personally.

Please don't confuse facts on this board. We have enough people that have been dumbed down by the California Educational System.

So using your logic then La Raza = NAZI as well right? They are pushing for a similar outcome. Why not add them to your wrong minded rant?

I don't understand what anyone has to gain with attempting to make metaphorical analogies to historical people and ideologies equal to current political figures. Not only are they misapplied, all they are is hyperbole (exaggeration) meant to instill an emotional reaction. If this method is a shorthand for summarizing one's viewpoints, then I'm dismayed at the ineptitude. If they are meant to disgrace the people with distorted realities, then it's sorely applied attempt. Okay, enough said, but nothing is gained with reductionist thinking like this.

Cholo you are La Raza if others, like this site and elsewhere SAY you are. Right ?? I'm mocking the name callers. YOU say Meg Whitman would be a NAZI. Wrong ! The crazies are on the two extremes, which is why 14 won. Fortunately, I'm in the sane center, and see the faults on both sides. (the left has many more faults, however, because they try to dictate the use of my EARNINGS..that really enrages me!).

I'm starting to be impressed with you. Keep it up. I think if you take over some thought leadership on this site it could become a pivotal point in the way people think regionally. Not alone, but thought leadership can be effective when applied diligently and with care.

OK Cholo I'll explain what I mean. "La Raza" (The Race) is a broad term which refers to those whose ancestry is indigenous to the area of Mexico (or "Aztlan"). MEChA members refer to themselves as "La Raza" or "Raza," but the term itself is used to indicate camaraderie among those in different organizations with the same objectives. There are a number of organizations who consider themselves to be La Raza.

MEChA is an Hispanic separatist organization that encourages anti-American activities and civil disobedience. The radical members of MEChA who refer to themselves as "Mechistas," romanticize Mexican claims to the "lost Territories" of the Southwestern United States -- a Chicano country called Aztlan. In its national constitution, MEChA calls for self-determination by its members to liberate Aztlan. MEChA's national constitution starts out: "Chicano and Chicana students of Aztlán must take upon themselves the responsibilities to promote Chicanismo within the community, politicizing our Raza with an emphasis on indigenous consciousness to continue the struggle for the self-determination of the Chicano people for the purpose of liberating Aztlán."

The concept of Aztlán as the place of origin of the pre-Columbian Mexican civilization has become a symbol for various Mexican nationalist and indigenous movements.

The name Aztlán was first taken up by a group of Chicano independence activists led by Oscar Zeta Acosta during the Chicano movement of the 1960s and 1970s. They used the name Aztlán to refer to the lands of Northern Mexico that were annexed by the United States as a result of the Mexican-American War. Combined with the claim of some historical linguists and anthropologists that the original homeland of the Aztecan peoples was located in the southwestern United States, Aztlán, in this sense, became a symbol for mestizo activists who believe they have a legal and primordial right to the land. In order to exercise this right, some members of the Chicano movement propose that a new nation be created, a Republica del Norte.

This is what I mean by "La Raza" Tee hee Tee hee.

Cholo, either you missed a pill, or you are totally a union activist...like an SEIU radical or a former state public union employee. You are just running off on Meg with lies on totally IRRELEVANT non-issues. You know nothing that you're talking about. That's why I think you have been given the public union check list of hits. The unions that Moonbeam created are ready for Meg with both barrels. So many of your hits were at the tea party, which is not Meg. Nobody in the tea party talked to her until last week. I kmow Palin is trying to horn in on her now, since Meg beat McClintock's poizner guy....2 1/2 to 1 ! Everybody wants to share her spotlight now. Since your opinion is SO valued, you should pause and check before you start manically comment after comment...we don't want you to lose credibility.

Since we have 3 Jerry candidates, Brown, McNerney, and THORNE, it probably would be good, to use last names for the duration of the election.
