Caravan Protestors in Tijuana Shout ‘Mexico First’ in Hat Tip to Trump Slogan

Published

on

It’s been a real doozy for the mainstream press covering the migrant caravan as it attempts to barrel through Tijuana, Mexico, given that many Mexican citizens have been less-than-welcoming to the foreign invaders.

“Demonstrators held signs reading ‘No illegals,’ ‘No to the invasion’ and ‘Mexico First.’ Many wore the country’s red, white and green national soccer jersey and vigorously waved Mexican flags,” according to NPR. “The crowd often slipped into chants of ‘Ti-jua-na!’ and ‘Me-xi-co!’ They sang the national anthem several times.”

After several years of calling President Donald J. Trump a racist, and now months of calling him a “white supremacist” due to his protectionist notions and self-described nationalism, the corporate media must be shocked to learn that supporting your own country does not, in fact, make you a racist. Perhaps this small conundrum is why much of the mainstream press has failed to cover the Tijuana protests completely.

“We want the caravan to go; they are invading us,” said Patricia Reyes, a 62-year-old protester, according to the report. “They should have come into Mexico correctly, legally, but they came in like animals.'”

“Tijuana is a place that welcomes anyone, but you must have papers, you must identify yourself,” protestor Magdalena Baltazar reportedly said. “We work hard here. We don’t get handouts. The government shouldn’t be giving things to migrants when plenty of Mexicans are in a difficult position.”

These sound a lot like the talking points of American Republicans, whom the leftwing press constantly accuses of hatred of immigrants. Surely, the press wouldn’t call Mexicans bigots, would they? Well…

Big League Politics reported:

A popular Qatari-owned media organization called Mexican citizens of Tijuana who bucked the migrant caravan as “xenophobic.”

“Is xenophobia growing in Mexico?” AJ+ asked in a video highlighting Mexican citizens protesting a horde of illegal migrants moving through the region.

“Hundreds of Mexicans held an anti-immigrant protest near the U.S. border and injured Central Americans,” the video said.

Of course, AJ+ left out the crucial subtlety that makes this a debate in the first place – these are not simply “immigrants,” they are illegal immigrants. There is a genuine debate to be had over whether countries should be allowed to defend their borders, and most sane people would agree that they should. What defines a nation if not its borders? The network, which usually targets white, American Republicans with its race-baiting segments, took an extraordinary leap in targeting Mexicans, whom they often depict as victims of racism by Americans.

It turns out, people of all races and creeds genuinely care about the self-interests of their own nations. Who would have thought?

Young Republican Group Comes to Armenia’s Defense

NYYRC stands with Armenia in the conflict.

Published

on

The New York Young Republican Club came to the defense of the state of Armenia on September 29, 2020 and condemned the government of Azerbaijan for its attack on the disputed territory of Nagorno-Karabakh over the last weekend. The group called on the U.S. government and all sovereign bodies to recognize the independence of the Republic of Artsakh  (Nagorno-Karabakh) and take necessary steps to prevent further attacks by the Azerbaijani government and its Islamist allies.

The Republican youth group fully supports the Armenian people and cited their long history as one of the many reasons they merit support from the West. It brought forward some historical points:

The Armenian people have a long history in the South Caucasus and the Armenian Highlands. The Republic of Artsakh contains sites of great historical significance to them, including the fourth-century Amaras Monastery. In the twentieth century, geopolitical events in Turkey and the Soviet Union dispossessed Armenians of much of their historic territory. The Armenian Genocide conducted by Turks destroyed untold lives and stole Mount Ararat from the Armenians. Further incursions into territory integral to the history and fundamental identity of the Armenian people cannot be tolerated.

In the statement, the Republican group called out the “Fake News Media” for “inadequately” relaying “the truth of the events unfolding in the Republic of Artsakh.” It called attention to how Turkey has fostered chaos by using its Islamist proxies in Syria and sending them to Armenia to terrorize Armenians. The group expanded on the over-arching  trend of growing Islamic radicalism directed towards Christian nations:

This continues a trend from decades ago whereby Armenia’s neighbors enlisted Afghan Mujahideen and Chechen mercenaries to attack. Allowing Turkey and Azerbaijan to use Radical Islamic Terrorists to attack Armenian Christians represents a dereliction of the United States’s fundamental values.

The Young Republican Club concluded its statement with the following:

The New York Young Republican Club stands with the Armenian people and residents of the Republic of Artsakh, who overwhelmingly reject Azerbaijani claims of authority. We urge the Republic of Armenia and the Republic of Artsakh to cooperate efficaciously in the interest of the Armenian people, and we implore the global Armenian diaspora advocate in the shared interests of all Armenians. In addition, we request that President Donald J Trump enact economic and trade sanctions against Turkey and Azerbaijan.

BLP was able to get in touch with Gavin Wax, the president of the New York Young Republican Club,  and get his thoughts on this matter.

Wax stated, “Armenia is on the frontlines fighting back against Islamist aggression.  The disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh between Armenia and Azerbaijan is almost 99% Armenian.  It is rightful Armenian territory. The oldest Christian state in the world should be defended by the West not abandoned.”

This current conflict demonstrates the naivete of American foreign policy with regards to how it has coddled Turkey for so long and allowed it to run around and cause geopolitical havoc.

Additionally, this demonstrates the uselessness of alliances such as NATO, which has already become outdated and compromised thanks to the inclusion of Turkey in it.

As the U.S.’s very own oil boom continues in motion, it should withdraw from the Middle East and focus more on its domestic and Western Hemisphere affairs.

Nevertheless, it should offer moral support and give Armenia diplomatic cover against predatory states such as Azerbaijan and Turkey. The latter is trying to re-enact Neo-Ottoman fantasies that will likely leave many Christian nations devastated.
