The Chicano Movement is a Mexican
nationalist movement which claims the southwestern United States as their
homeland. Chicano Park is a city park in San Diego whose development and
maintenance has cost millions of tax dollars. The only land that we’re going to claim —
we do claim. But the only land that we’re going to claim is this land right here.
And I’m talking about Aztlan. I’m talking about California, Arizona,
Nueva Mexico, Texas. All these lands belong to us. This is our land!
We’re gonna get this land one way or another. And we’re gonna get it someday.
The only way we really going to get it is by unity. That pinche Donald Trump
said that you all a bunch of rapists. And you know what, he’s even talking about people that are citizens. If your mother or father were born in Mexico, he wants to get rid of you, too! He wants to get rid of all of us. Que viva la Raza. Chicano Power. Let’s go and thanks to all of you. esterline sasayama now we only quattro

reconquered. The speaker said that the past is the future and the dances
consecrate this sacred place. This mystical quasi religious goal makes it a
cult movement they believe that they have a divine right to the land. The Chicano fascination with skulls,
hearts, blood and death can be traced back to the time that the Aztecs carried
out human sacrifice in very large numbers. Hearts were extracted and
offered to the gods. Blood was drink and parts of the bodies
were eaten. The skulls were put in racks and displayed as trophies. This is a t-shirt, which portrays an
Aztec warrior who has just beheaded a Spanish Christian and is holding his
head by the hair, the cross hanging from his head. The headless body lies behind
him. You can find perverse messages embedded in these murals, if you know what to look for. Some are very obvious, others
are a little more subtle. The swastika here is of interest because
the Chicano ideology is loosely based on the book by a Mexican Nazi propagandist.
The book is entitled “La Raza Cosmica.” This book by Jose Vasconcelos also
popularized the term “La Raza” for the mestizo race. In this
mural you see a sunset over San Diego Bay, filled with blood.
You know it’s blood, because on other sides of the mural you see a heart
spewing blood into the bay. These are just a couple of examples but there are
many references to violence and revolution in the murals at Chicano Park
in San Diego.
