Los Angeles, Alta California – November 19, 2010 – (ACN) Texas Governor Rick Perry has suddenly gone ‘loco.’ He now thinks that he is the incarnation of General Sam Houston. Yesterday at a conference of the Republican Governors Association in San Diego, Alta California he said that he would support sending U.S. troops into Mexico to fight the drug cartel insurgents. Not since the fall of the Alamo and the subsequent Battle of San Jacinto on April 21, 1836 have things been so bleak between the Republic of Mexico and the Texan anti-Mexican racists.
It is now clear that Governor Perry is utilizing the infamous Texas Rangers to instigate a fight with Mexico. Today, Captain Stacy Holland of the Texas Rangers made some inflammatory statements to the media. He said, “I never thought that we’d be in this paramilitary type of engagement. It’s a war on the border.” Captain Holland is making it appear as if there is already a war between Mexicans and Texas. Captain Holland, who commands a fleet of 16 heavily armed Texas Ranger helicopters, said that he is a daily witness to numerous columns of drug cartel insurgents armed with AK-47s crossing into the USA. This is a totally fabricated lie at the most or a huge exaggeration at the least. The Texas Rangers have now launched what they refer to as a ‘counterinsurgency.’
Governor Perry has chosen a brutal armed force to carry out his
planned racist campaign against Mexico and Mexicans. The evil Texas Rangers have a notorious history going back to 1835 of murdering and lynching Mexicans. Their brutal repression of the Mexican population in early Texan history was tantamount to state-sanctioned terrorism. Although the exact number of Mexicans murdered and lynched by the Texas Rangers is unknown, historians estimate that it ran into the thousands. One case is particularly heinous. In March of 1881, a posse of Texas Rangers crossed the border into Mexico and illegally arrested Onofrio Baca on trump up charges. Mr. Baca was returned without extradition orders to the United States where he was handed over to a mob and strung up to the cross beams of the gate in the court house yard until he was dead.
The terrorizing of Mexicans by the Texas Rangers continued well into the twentieth century. On October 18, 1915 a group of Mexican insurgents derailed a train travelling towards Brownsville. The sinister Texas Rangers exacted brutal revenge. Two Mexican passengers aboard the train were shot on the spot for their supposed assistance of the raid. The Texas Rangers then decapitated eight suspected Mexican insurgents and left their headless bodies along the banks of the Rio Grande to rot.
President Barack Obama should move quickly to shut Rick Perry’s mouth up. With the US already involved in two wars, it certainly can not afford another one. The US armed forces are already running on their last gallon of gas and the US economy is in the gutter. We are no longer back in 1835. It is doubtful that the modern day Texas Rangers can take on the well armed Sinaloa Cartel or the Zetas. Also, let us not forget the embarrassing General John J. Pershing‘s Punitive Expedition into Mexico that sought to capture the brilliant General Francisco Villa.
The best solution to the problem is for the USA to cure its huge appetite for drugs like marijuana, cocaine, heroin and crystal meth. There is no need to attack the supply and invade Mexico. Take care of the demand in the USA. Presidents Bill Clinton and George Bush as well as Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan have used these drugs and have contributed to the problem. Do not punish Mexico.
