The fallout of the Cristero War
Talking of Mexico, how did this crisis on our border begin?
The Cristero War (1926-29) was a civil war in which common Catholic peasant folk rightly revolted against the satanic, Masonic, violently atheistic, mentally unhinged and anti-Catholic Mexican dictator, Plutarco Elías Calles. This murderous sociopath infamously declared:
“I am the personal enemy of Jesus Christ!”
Calling the Catholic Church “a political movement,” not a religious entity and belief in Christ broadly an antiquated superstition, Calles sought to suppress and destroy Holy Mother Church in order to bring about a socialist state (sound familiar?). All over Mexico, Calles and his henchmen murdered thousands of priests, monks, nuns and ordinary Catholic men, women and children. It was a kind of smaller-scale genocide, rather like the attempted total liquidation of the Vendée province by the Masonic, atheistic, anti-Catholic soldiers of Napoléon in the 1790’s.
Shamefully, the American government (there’s a reason nobody remembers those incompetent presidents of the 1920’s) and the wicked Ku Klux Klan (quelle horreur) supported the Calles government out of their own anti-Catholic bigotry and selfish money interests. Why would the former ultimately get involved? Mexican oil (quelle surprise). But to be fair, the Cristeros also had their American supporters: chiefly the Knights of Columbus, which back then was actually still a bona fide Catholic organisation and not shot through with liberalism and heresy as it is today.
The war created many martyrs and saints. Men fought bravely against the evil Calles government. They were stood up before firing squads and courageously met their end with defiant cries of “Long live Christ the King!”
The war ended in a ceasefire, with some of the Cristeros’ demands for religious freedom met. Yet to this day, the Catholic Church remains persecuted in Mexico. A quarter of a million people died in the war, and another 250,000 escaped to America. This began the first major wave of Mexican immigration.
And a genuine immigration it was, too. These were good people––devout Catholics, possessed of large families and a commendable work ethic––all just seeking a better way of life in a better nation with better laws: a place where they could be left alone without interference from a hyper-intrusive government. By the decade of 1944-54, Latin American immigration stateside increased an astonishing 6,000 per cent, according to the Texas State Historical Association.
Ironically, though you had an entirely better class of Latin American immigrant in those days, you also had racial and religious bigotry at their peak. Most Americans didn’t want a bunch of garlic-eating, swarthy Catholics from Mexico coming on to our shores. That’s honestly how they felt in those days. But that ethos began to change in the wake of the Hippie Revolt of the 1960’s, when shame compounded shame, and two wrongs of course didn’t make a right.
Unfortunately, also changing was the character of all too many Latin American immigrants. Seeing the poor example of relativism, mindless sensualism and hedonism that Hippieism promulgated, born in California and spread round the world, and with the devastation and confusion wrought by Vatican II, people in Mexico and points south by the hundreds of thousands cast off Catholicism, conservatism, tradition and normalcy in favour of sex, drugs and rock and roll. And with the American government’s fatuous prohibition of drugs––which should be legalised, federalised and taxed, thus destroying the drug cartels overnight––there was created a curious kind of kingpin entrepreneur: the drug lord.
The drug cartels control entire communities and provinces in Mexico, Colombia, Perú and elsewhere. The U.S. State Department has for long years now strongly warned Americans not to travel to Mexico at all, as it’s just too dangerous. Want to drive over that bridge? You’ve got to pay the cartels. Give your money to Jorge, the 15-year-old with the machine gun, over there. Cartel members threaten, extort and murder at will, and finding a Latin American police force that isn’t hopelessly corrupt is like finding snow in June.
No wonder people want to leave these crapholes. Venezuela was once prosperous until socialism destroyed it. Yes, southern Chile and Argentina work. But they’re the exceptions. Nobody emigrates from there. Those people tend to be happy where they are. And Patagonia remains covertly controlled by the local German population, so of course it’s very well run.
Alas, too many of the people attempting to escape Latin America haven’t been properly vetted. Yes, there are many good people among them. But all too many––as many Mexicans and other Hispanics themselves have told me and I’ve seen with my own eyes––are a lot of neo-pagan, tattooed freaks, complete with missing teeth and earrings in their noses and other places they should never be. They’re clad immodestly and possessed of rotted brains addled by horrid music, drugs and drink. Gang-related problems are very real; just ask my wife’s California relatives.
Talking of which, los ilegales have brought leprosy and even the bubonic plague and other diseases long vanquished in the West into Los Angeles. Do you really want to be quite literally plagued by a lot of unhealthy, unwashed, disease-carrying criminals?
Will anything be done? Very doubtful. The Democrat leaders, whose baby illegal immigration is and who live safely in gated, guarded neighbourhoods, don’t give an Irish damn about such things, as they’re not affected by them. They just want the votes of these people. That’s all.
In a sad irony, three generations ago, with an exponentially better class of immigrant, they would have voted Republican. They were believing, practising Catholics and family-oriented, and they espoused traditional values. Today, all too many are not. They’ve rejected the religion of Mami y Papi; they’re addicted to drugs; they sire countless bastards; and they live by the destructive, poisonous creed of the self-centred, God-hating Hippie. All very sad.
A now little-known Eisenhower Era law would prevent such things. In 1956, a law was passed that forbade entry into the United States by people “inimical to America and the American way of life.” Whilst obviously this was aimed at Russians, as said era was the height of the Cold War, after all, it logically could and should be extended to Mohammedans, communists and los ilegales.
But Democrats don’t care about enforcing our laws. If only the existing laws were enforced, it would knock a big chunk out of the problem. Yet Democrats, as we all know, don’t want that to happen. They want the votes. And they’ll take them anyway they can get them, whether they come from dead people or from people who aren’t even citizens and thus have no right to vote.
Many advocate a Marshall Plan for Latin America. Clean up things south of the border, and people won’t want to come here. Maybe we could make the drug cartels pay for it. Arrest those men, expropriate their wealth, and there you are. Do that, and you could reverse the immigration problem in perhaps a generation.
But will our spineless, brainless politicians support such an idea? Of course not. It’s too logical. They prefer to whine, waste money and tilt at windmills (“systemic racism,” “white privilege,” “critical race theory,” and all manner of bovine scatology) that just ain’t there. Liberals are delusional and childish, and they’re exceedingly good at seeing things that just don’t exist. As P.J. O’Rourke has observed, “Liberalism is the culture of the spoilt brat.”
En-masse repatriation is another answer. Certainly it’s talked about in Europe as the answer to the Mohammedan Question. And hey, if it worked for li’l Joey Stalin, who pulled himself up by his elevator boots and expelled a million Germans from occupied Poland in 1946, it could certainly work today.
But the Democrats won’t do that. The Republicans, too, liberal as they are in their own way, probably also lack the kishkas to do so. Like so many little Neros, they will fiddle while Rome burns, and they’ll nice themselves to death whilst America slowly becomes Mexico North.
Rome lasted many centuries. Rome itself may have fallen gradually some 15 to 16 centuries ago. But when you consider that Constantinople and the Eastern Roman Empire didn’t collapse until 1453 (only yesterday in that part of the world), when they were tragically overrun by invading Mohammedan Orcs who would one day give this usurped, stolen land the stupid name of “Turkey,” Rome, in a profound sense, really lasted the better part of two millennia.
Yet it still didn’t last for ever. Neither will America and the West, I fear; not if current trends remain uncorrected. When Rome fell, most of its soldiers were comprised of Germanic barbarians who couldn’t even speak Latin. That lack of social cohesion and inherently divided loyalties helped bring down the Empire in the West. It broke up into smaller countries, which were in turn usually broken up into even smaller countries. Consider the divisions of Spain, France, England and the German lands. The Italian Peninsula itself regressed, lapsing into smaller nations and sometimes even conflicts of city versus city.
Such a fate awaits the American Empire, as I desperately worry. The Hispanic invasion and insane liberalism will form a pincer movement, eventually leading to America’s collapse, if our present courses are not turned.
I have enormous respect for Spain and its glorious culture. I venerate El Cid and Cervantes. On certain occasions, I fly the old Spanish flag that flew when the noble and heroic Francisco Franco governed that nation as the Catholic confessional state that Almighty Christ Himself intended it should be. Franco and the equally unjustly maligned Augusto Pinochet, the famous dictator of Chile, were real men who knew, by God, how to get things done. Their muy macho ilk is sorely lacking throughout Latin America and the rest of the globe today.
Spain was the only nation in history to kick out both the Mohammedans (in 1492) and the communists (in 1939). Were the whole of the Spanish-speaking Americas once again governed directly from Madrid by King Felipe VI, as God intended and with all the Christian presuppositions that would entail, Latin America could be put to right eventually, and there would be no crisis of los ilegales.
Alas, taken broadly, the whole of Latin America is a place too stupid and too corrupt to figure this out. Their countries are dunghills of chaos and decay, because they reject Christ the King, His Church and the legitimate absolute rule of Felipe. And the day may well come when the communists (many, I daresay, from Venezuela) are triumphant, and Christians of all stripes are rounded up to be placed in camps or face firing squads.
And when that happens, may we have the courage of los Cristeros. May we stand there with stiff backs and clear eyes, looking straight into the sallow, suilline faces of our oppressors and assassins, and let our last words be those of the Cristeros, echoing down through the ages:
“¡Viva Cristo Rey!”
