'Mostly Peaceful' Protest? Reconquista Group Threw Tires And Tar On Highway Almost Causing Mass Pileup

Bookmark and Share

tires on highway tucson
As you watched the coverage of the protest being held in Phoenix by illegal aliens and their supporters against SB1070 and the rule of law, you heard time and time again from the news media that they were "mostly peaceful". While in the downtown area an estimated 30 people were arrested, one cited for threats and intimidation, there was very little coverage of the disruption of a highway in Tucson that almost caused a severe accident and mass pileup.

The group calling itself "Freedom For Arizona" put out a release claiming credit for the attempted killing of people driving on the highway. Titled "Direct Action Disrupts Arizona Racism!", it is a rant against SB1070, immigration enforcement, borders and attacks on the "indigenous land".

"Today’s action is a declaration of resistance to the criminalization of affected communities and the militarization of indigenous land."
A witness says he saw two trucks driving next to each other on the highway, they both came to an abrupt halt in the middle of the highway, almost causing a pileup. A group of guys poured out of the trucks and dragged tires covered in tar with a banner attached to it across the road. They then dumped brown paint and glass on the road and drove away.

Here is the witness account of Andres Chavez, who was driving home from school at the time, in the Arizona Star

He said two trucks driving parallel on southbound Intestate-19 between Ajo and Valencia stopped and threw tires connected by rope from the truck beds.

The 8-12 men in the trucks then threw brown paint, broken glass and a sign over the tires. The sign read: "Stop the militirazation on the border." Then, they drove away, Chavez said.

"They halted traffic completely and almost got rear-ended by cars behind them," Chavez said.

Chavez pulled the 15-20 tires off the road because he was worried about wrecks.

"I have no problem with people protesting or whatever, but they were putting people's lives at risk," said Chavez, a 23-year-old University of Arizona journalism student. "There could have been a multi-car pile up there."

He described the tire-throwers as men between the ages of 20-25 who wore regular regular clothes.

"We want an end to the militarization of indigenous land."
This incident was almost totally ignored by the media in their efforts to show illegal aliens and their supporters as simply committing "civil disobedience" and causing no problem. But the reality is that there are militant groups mixed in with these "peaceful protesters" and they are taking action. Some of the statement released by the "Freedom For Arizona" is telling as to who they are really associated with and stand for, and it's not simple illegal aliens.
Stop all militarization! The border is illegal
The witness Chavez got the message they left on the banner incorrect. It actually reads "Stop All Militarization! The Border is Illegal!" in other words this group is not simply protesting SB1070, they don't believe in borders at all. This leads you to believe that it could have been done by one of the indigenous reconquista groups in the area. If you guessed this, then you are correct according to what is actually in their statements. I have covered quite a few of these groups and the most well known is the "Aztlan/Abya Yala" group Tonatierra run by Tupac Enrique Acosta. He has his hands in all of the indigenous reconquista movement that is going in Arizona. While there is nothing to tie him to these actions as of yet, it is interesting to note. You can read more about Tonatierra and their Aztlan plans in my large report on them.

Back to the statement released though and why you can come to this conclusion on your own. There is indeed an indigenous movement and now they are starting to put lives at risk.

(Full text of the statement, which was in English and Spanish, is here)

The group released a statement - written with poor English grammar in many places - saying "Partial justice is no justice at all! ... This is why today we shut down Interstate 19 (I-19)". They went on to state the following:

Tupac Enrique Acosta
Tupac Enrique Acosta
This blockade is a temporary shutdown of the very road that is used to deport people deemed “illegal” as well as a direct disruption of the flow of capital. By blocking I-19 we have halted the transportation of migrants and the profits Whack-n-hut and Corrections Corporation of Amerikkka make by these inhumane acts of separating families, communities and loved ones. This morning we interrupt the privatization of the criminalization of people of color.


Today’s action is a declaration of resistance to the criminalization of affected communities and the militarization of indigenous land.


We want an end to the militarization of indigenous land, I.C.E. raids, deportations, the attacks on ethnic studies, violence against women and queer people, the expansion of prisons and immigration detention centers, empire, the border wall and the genocide at the Arizona-Sonora border that has claimed the lives of over 153 people during the first 8 months of this fiscal year alone.

Today we interrupt the flow of Arizona’s traffic to bring attention to the following points:






While there are some anarchist type of remarks in there, no anarchist group is going to mention "indigenous people" and "indigenous land" in their statements. This is the mark of reconquista groups like that of Tonatierra. This is also probably all thanks to the "ethnic studies" classes that groups like Tonatierra have been holding in high schools across Arizona for years.

Another question to ask yourself in all of this is where is the media? Why did more not report this story - and even those who did - not find the released statement interesting enough to delve into who would be involved in such a group? There are several reasons that I can think of. Maybe they are sympathetic to their cause; they don't want to alarm the public; they are incompetent; they are lazy; there's no way of knowing, but they should be ashamed of themselves either way.

Illegal aliens say no human being is illegal. OK. Then what do you call them that break the law? the ones that come here illegally poor as hell and has no problems having babies to get linked into welfare and its freebies especially the emergency cash assistance. they also say they have no id and they still get welfare. wonder how many checks they get a month per individual. So now taxpayers are supporting the kids and their parents. So while we are supporting them financially, they working cash jobs and some are actually working our state jobs through the stinking employers who hire them.They should rot in hell these employers. So they come to america, scam our $$.. Take our jobs, drive and vote and now they upset we call them illegal? Ok, from here on we'll call them criminals and should be locked up forever!!

If they "want" respect maybe they should try showing some First! As for Justice , try coming here LEGALLY and obeying the laws! Respect is earned. It's not an entitlement.These people only think of themselves! Justice in there case would be to deport them and ban them from the U.S.A. for life!

Why don't we just call them what they really are - INSURGENTS. Their actions are an act of war against this country and they should be hunted down like animals and put into jail forever. They are seeking to take over the southwest. Apparently the ancestors of the ALAMO have lost their cahunas because they are allowing these groups to move freely in our country.

In our own native land, in defense of the freedom that is our birthright, and which we ever enjoyed till the late violation of it -- for the protection of our property, acquired solely by the honest industry of our fore-fathers and ourselves, against violence actually offered, we have taken up arms. We shall lay them down when hostilities shall cease on the part of the aggressors, and all danger of their being renewed shall be removed, and not before.

This, folks, is what's called ANARCHY. It is a total repudiation of any type of law and our government seems to have no problem with it. These crowds are savage and have no rights whatsoever in this country. If they are illegal, the authorities need to get them out. If they are misguided citizens, they need to go to jail for a very long time for inciting riots. This is NOT what our forefathers wanted for this country. We have an administration who condones these actions, so it's up to us to vote out the traitors in November, and look for someone in 2012 who will stand up for this country rather than surrender it to Mexico.

How come Mexico refuses to let people in their Southern
borders. They rob, rape, and murder those that come through
their country to get into the USA. After all, they are just trying to come here(from South America) for a better
life but Mexico is very violent to them. What cowards they
are. They haven't got the brains or guts to stay in their own country and fix their problems. Maybe they should have
taken better care of their country and not let it go to the
cartels. Now they don't know what to do. They want to turn our country into Mexico. Then where will they go?

Real American Citizen Intercepting Sneaky Tresspassers. Now that is really racist. Arcigi

Posted by: arcigi on July 31, 2010 12:28 PM

The Obama administration filed a lawsuit to stop a new law taking affect in Arizona that makes it a crime for Arizona employers to hire illegal aliens; has Obama’s lawsuit extended an invitation to illegal immigrants to illegally enter Arizona to seek employment?

Any law that is enforced that stops illegal U.S. immigration, threatens socialist and communist agendas; both ideologies promulgate overburdening financially U.S. Government, local and state infrastructures to force economic and public chaos on Citizens. Marxists historically move on democracies when they are in Economic and Social Crisis. Obama’s refusal to enforce illegal immigration laws and secure the border is playing into the hands of the REDS. Obama’s Socialist/Marxist constituents, many in U.S. Government, intend to absorb into their ranks millions of illegal immigrants via Amnesty to force their leftist ideology on Americans—that mandate U.S. Citizens share their wealth with the masses—globally. Obama appears intended to leave the border open or so poorly secured, that 12 million more illegal immigrants can enter America, insuring Obama’s leftist constituency can find—several million (foreign born) residents to push for a Socialist America. Illegal immigrants now protest on America’s streets demanding U.S. Taxpayers pay for their education, health care and an array of other welfare costs.

Openly some in the Obama Government admit they want to dismantle capitalism; that would result in most Americans becoming unemployed, many forever. Historically, under producing Marxist governments have made communism work at the onset—by eliminating civilian populations considered not critical, until they reach a number the communist government can support; and by cannibalizing assets seized from imprisoned and terminated Citizens. Are you a critical Citizen?

Obama a red diaper baby—does not represent America or any country, but a Marxist ideology. Marxism—mandates crushing democracies, individualism and forcing socialism or worse on U.S. Citizens. If you look at Obama’s past life, he spent much of his time associating with Communists and Marxist groups and like individuals. Perhaps supporting a leftist agenda, Obama has succeeded in crippling the U.S. economy, forcing new taxes and regulatory costs on U.S. businesses to where Americans are afraid to invest, afraid to hire new employees. In 2011 Obama intends to hugely raise your taxes to pay for trillions in debt he continues to rack up imploding public welfare programs and government bureaucracies. In the midst of the worst recession since the Great Depression, Obama forced mandated unaffordable health insurance costs on Americans.

Increasingly Americans believe Obama is trying to destroy the United States economically, making it impossible for the U.S. to pay for a sufficient military defense, to force America to subordinate to a global form of socialist government. Whether or not that is true, what might happen to America if it can’t afford a strong military defense? What would Communist China do?

Historically, when leftists like Obama have been elected to government, they—target democracies by appointing to courts and judicial bodies, individuals that might help in the destruction of a nation to advance their leftist ideology. (Kagan)? Many believe Obama in the White House is a threat to National Security. Obama took an oath as President to uphold the Constitution but did Obama lie, commit fraud to move into the White House? While Americans talk about impeachment, consideration should be given to investigating Obama for Treason if he has directly or covertly supported communist activity since being elected President. Communism calls for the destruction of the U.S. Constitution. Not long ago, it was common in American to arrest promulgators of communism. Perhaps that should be revisited...

Should Obama politically, keep his hands off your children?

U.S. schoolteachers now instruct their youngest pupils to sing songs about him. Robin Hood he is not, but he does take money from Citizens to give it to others. His name is Barack Obama. One need only look to the White House to confirm how a promulgated ideology (socialism) can influence a child and destroy a nation. If Obama-ism is not stopped it will spread like a disease infecting our youth, inspiring a form of Marxist-socialism that will destroy the quality of life for Americans. Let there be no doubt Patriots are at War with those in our nation that intend a rein of RED TERROR on the principals that made America great.

If Obama's leftists associations get their way (The Disclose Act), our Children will be brainwashed by Obama’s one-sided propaganda at school, through Obama controlled Radio, TV and Obama media policies that restrict the free flow of information. Meanwhile leftists relentlessly recruit children in grade and high schools to support leftist agendas most children don’t understand that call for the destruction of America and its Constitution.

The majority of Americans have no U.S. Government. The Obama Government is not representative of the United States, its Constitution or the majority will of the People. Effectively the U.S. Government has been high jacked. Whether a leftist coup or a mixed form of fascism is taking place, remains to be seen. That may be determined after the November 2010 elections.

This dumb Reconquista faschist knucklehead doesn't even know that Mexicans aren't completely of Native American blood and I have spoken to many Native Americans in real life and they literally laughed like crazy at all the claims of Reconquista extremeists and Native Americans even know that Mexicans are 1/2 Spainards (yes Mexicans are the descendents of people who slaughtered the Indians in the 1500s). It is funny how open borders squeal racism when the fact is, most of the illegal aliens (probably the large majority) hail from Mexico, and they do not want to learn English, acquire citizenship, pay taxes and respect the laws of the United States. It is funny how Reconquista crybabies whine and pout about Arizonas immigration reform law, when Mexico treats Central and South American immigrants like how Nazi Germany treats the Jews. It is unfair we have hordes of Illegal Aliens (who mostly come from Mexico) who abuse our welfare systems, who cram our educational systems and lower our test scores, who have their day laborers loitering on our streets doing things such as harassing women, making too much noise, having crowds of up to 50 people loitering in front of Home Depot being a public nuisance. They also urinate in public and take craps in public too. Why can't Illegal Alien day laborers go walk to their local Labor Ready center and apply for work visas. Why do they have to walk around in dirty clothes and make a lot of noise standing around your local Home Depots all the time. See, if we let hordes of Illegal Aliens come into the USA, it will turn into China, India or another 3rd World Shithole. If Mexicans are so patriotic about Mexico, why do they have to flood into the USA, not learn how to speak English, not get an education and abuse our welfare systems and educational systems and turn our American cities into a 3rd World Wasteland. This is so unfair for people who want to come to the USA Legally and these people flooding into the USA Illegally are making it unfair for LEGAL Immigrants. We need to start setting up as many deportation cases as possible to start true reform in the 50 states. SB1070 Is NOT Racist, Reconquistas are the ones who are racist, with Hector Carreon and all yapping hate against Jews and Homosexuals.
