The Reconquista Film and Texas Politics

To the Honorable Governor of Texas:

I want YOU to send Robert Rodriguez and his racist, anti-American films Machete and it’s sequels, packing.  Tax breaks and subsidies needed to be rescinded due to the film’s offensive and blatant racist lies and propaganda.

This one thing would go a long way in garnering much more support for the you as governor, especially for those of us who do not think YOU do NEAR enough to secure our borders and defend the sovereignty of the United States or Texas.  Here is your opportunity to do what is best for OUR state.

Offensive scenes litter this propaganda piece, including dialogue that indoctrinates viewers that the activities of those who cross the border are justified even if they are illegal.  They go into great detail to show the Americans [Texans] as anti-brown people bigots full of hatred and seething with rage for the brown people being in their land, but there is no mention of the countless laws broken by them to get in America.  [Just for a gratuitous slam we are all labeled as white trash bubbas.] The only mention of sovereignty is that our borders crossed them, not the other way around.   Some of the more outlandish  scenes are according to Aaron Dykes & Alex Jones Prison Planet.com:


1.  Opening scene where pregnant mother trying to cross the border is killed by DeNiro and border vigilantes to ‘prevent another anchor baby’

2.  A phony campaign ad for DeNiro’s Senator McLaughlin depicts hundreds of crawling worms and cockroaches while decrying the “parasite” immigrant “terrorists” crossing the border.

3.  The Network’ of Latinos was continually virtuous while the Freedom Force, a vigilante group cast with caricatures of hillbilly trash, neo-Nazi types and fat slobs, repeatedly use terms like “wetbacks,” “cucarachas,” “parasites,” “beaners” and more.

4.  Freedom Fighter vigilantes regularly go out on adventures to snipe at illegals near the border and film their exploits

5.  A Catholic priest played by Cheech Marin is crucified by the character “Booth” who slings racist insults while nailing him to the cross.

6.   A scene in a hospital where it is declared that illegal immigrants are usually refused emergency care,  Machete is lucky that ‘The Network’ is there to help him this time. (In reality, the cost of health care for undocumented illegal immigrants, for both emergency care, births, public education and beyond is burdensome to every Southern border state, as well as in many other areas.

The Ford Foundation and Rockefeller Foundation and the Carnegie Foundationhave a long history of financing and subsidizing radical groups like La Raza. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation have given millions to La Raza. Fox has their own relationship with La Raza. Do you think Texas needs to join in funding anti-American hatred and propaganda?  Since “Rodriguez is the face of the Texas Film Commission’s tax incentives program,” don’t you think it is time to pull this funding?  Especially since Trejo, the star and Rodriguez have assured us there will be more films in the Machete franchise?   When will they acknowledge that illegals are indeed breaking the law and milking Texas, Arizona and the entire US and the burden is unsustainable, not fodder for a Mexploitation film?   Their take, the La Raza take, the reconquista spin on illegal immigration is the only viewpoint these films espouse and you should better educate yourself on their views before giving them another dime.  

Fox’s film division funds ‘Machete.’  Let us hope that Fox News readers understand the importance of that statement and contact Fox for and explanation and use their dollars to show their support for such actions, accordingly.
