Payback For May 1 - Boycott Cinco de Mayo


Want to get payback for all these Mexicans and other Latinos who paraded in our streets supporting illegal immigration (like the 1,000 who assembled at the Delaney Park Strip in Anchorage, picture courtesy of KTUU Channel 2)? Here's your opportunity. Tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo, a Mexican holiday where Mexicans celebrate their military somehow winning a fluke victory over numerically and technologically-superior French forces in 1862. Since one can count the number of wars Mexico has won on one hand and still have enough fingers left over to write legibly, it is understandable that they would celebrate one of their rare successes.


This means tomorrow we don't buy Mexican, we don't eat Mexican, we don't watch Mexican, we don't read Mexican - in short, we don't do anything Mexican. It would be a good day to dine on good old traditional American cuisine, to watch a traditional John Wayne movie, to read a traditional American book. I personally have been boycotting Mexican products whenever possible for 10 years now, and I will continue to do so until Mexico cooperates with us in restraining immigration and starts respecting American sovereignty in the Southwest once again (graphic courtesy of the National Alliance News Service).

And the Mexican fluke victory over French forces in 1862 was not good for us, nor was it really in the long-term best interests of Mexico. An extended period of French rule would have been good for Mexico. It would have civilized them and narrowed the gap between rich and poor. They would have been better prepared for true independence later on. We wouldn't have so many of them crashing our borders today because they'd have a stronger, more equitable economy. California wouldn't be the overcrowded cesspool it is now. Click here for an excellent article describing how mass immigration has affected California.

Here's an expanded account of the origin of Cinco de Mayo, albeit heavily-biased from the Mexican point of view. However, it provides useful insight into their thinking.

  1. Most people don't know that back in 1912, Hellmann's mayonnaise was
    manufactured in England. In fact, the Titanic was carrying 12,000 jars of the condiment scheduled for delivery in Vera Cruz, Mexico, which was to be the next port of call for the great ship after its stop in New York.

    This would have been the largest single shipment of mayonnaise ever
    delivered to Mexico. But as we know, the great ship did not make it to New York. The ship hit an iceberg and sank, and the cargo was forever lost. The people of Mexico, who were crazy about mayonnaise, and were eagerly awaiting its delivery, were disconsolate at the loss.

    Their anguish was so great, that they declared a National Day of Mourning, which they still observe to this day.

    The National Day of Mourning occurs each year on May 5th and is known, of course, as Sinko de Mayo.

  2. I guess that explains why Mexico's been trying to "catsup" with us ever since.

    we should send them all back to Mexico and let them celibrate thier "holiday" there. America has given many minorities "holidays" and months to celibrate thier history. Then we have to deal with boycotts and protests. I am the first to say that Americans 1st Amendments rights should be allowed... Even when I disagree with what is said. That is what makes America and states like Alaska so much better than 3rd world or communist countries. But to boycott and to threaten America is un American and these people should be shipped back until they can VALUE our great country.

  4. Well to start with, you should do yourself a favor and try to understand that being white or brown or black is not a race but ethnicity. We are all human therefore that is our race. So please stop being such dumbasses because I guarantee that you are not any better at all.
