When it comes to providing aid and comfort to those who wish us harm, Barack Obama takes a back seat to no one—and he provides it with your tax dollars. The latest profanation perpetrated by his Executive Branch has to do with $1.6 million which the Department of Transportation has earmarked to restore some murals glorifying not George Washington, not Abe Lincoln, not even the liberal’s hero FDR; instead, our money (what’s left of it) is being used to aggrandize the communist revolutionaries Che Guevara and Fidel Castro, and to propagandize for the dissolution of the Southwestern United States:
[…] At a time of record debt, rampant unemployment, and a financially strained citizenry – our Federal government somehow can afford a whopping $1,600,000 to restore “Chicano” murals depicting communist butchers Che Guevara and Fidel Castro, and with maps featuring “Aztlan” – the mythical “nation” that La Raza activists demand be taken from the United States to create a new ethnically-pure proto-Mexican state.
The funds are being provided by the Department of Transportation and is called a “federal transportation enhancement” (as if there are no unsafe bridges across America that could use the funds!)
The murals begun as Mexican nationalist graffiti in the 1970s. The graffiti was first painted on highway underpasses in an attempt to stop the construction of a California Highway Patrol office there. Activists proclaimed the area a “Chicano park” and appeasing leaders – fearing violence – “negotiated” with activists to keep the murals and cancel the police station.

The National Council of La Raza, the former senior vice president of which Obama recently appointed to head his Domestic Policy Council (hmm…can anyone doubt just what domestic policies this Council is going to recommend?), is about as radically un-American as an organization can get; nonetheless it thrives, primarily on the largesse of the federal government, which gifted it with $15.2 million in Department of Education grants in 2009 (NCLR Funding Skyrockets After Obama Hires Its VP).
The Council of La Raza succeeded in having itself added to congressional hearings by Republican House and Senate leaders. And an anonymous senator even gave the Council of La Raza an extra $4 million in earmarked taxpayer money, supposedly for “housing reform,” while La Raza continues to lobby the Senate for virtual open borders and amnesty for illegal aliens.
Key among the secondary organizations is the radical racist group Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan, or Chicano Student Movement of Aztlan (MEChA), one of the most anti-American groups in the country, which has permeated U.S. campuses since the 1960s, and continues its push to carve a racist nation out of the American West.
As Miguel Perez of Cal State-Northridge’s MEChA chapter has been quoted as saying:
“The ultimate ideology is the liberation of Aztlan. Communism would be closest [to it]. Once Aztlan is established, ethnic cleansing would commence: Non-Chicanos would have to be expelled — opposition groups would be quashed because you have to keep power.”

Obama, of course, never saw a communist or radical to whom he refused a helping hand (and these days, that hand is deeply in the pockets of the U.S. taxpayer). To wit: the granting of a $355 million no-bid U.S. Air Force contract to the Brazilian company Embraer:
The recently elected President of Brazil is Dilma Vana Rousseff of the Workers Party (Communist) who strengthened ties with Chavez on December 11th of this year.
Since when is the U.S. a country that does not allow its own companies to bid against foreign competitors, especially communist competitors?
Answer: Since Barack Hussein Obama was elected president.
