The House passed on a voice vote during the final hours of the 114th Congress a bill which would have designated the racially charged Chicano Park as a national landmark. Yes, the bill passed with unanimous approval, but I was convinced that the legislation would face an uphill battle in the United States during the second week of December and final week of debate. The Democratic US Senators were fighting to push a government bailout for miners' pensions, but the measure failed. Democrats did not have the votes or the backing to enforce a shut down of the federal government, especially since the House had closed up for the winter recess and would not return until the next legislative session.
Then other sources were telling me Chicano Park could receive National Monument status with the stroke of pen from the Secretary of the Interior. There was still time for executive cabinet heads to do something.
So, what was going on?
Then I got more good intel.
Roger Ogden then writes:
One Christmas present came late this year. It turns out Arthur Schaper was right. We have to admit it, but it doesn't pain us too much. ;-) It seems the House and the Senate had to approve the Chicano Park Preservation Act. It was passed by the House. The National Park Service told me that all that was required was for the Secretary of the DOI to sign the designation approval.
What a shame for San Diego art lovers. (sarcasm) Good luck, Representative Vargas getting that anti-American, glorified graffiti designated as a National Historic Landmark during the Trump era. Nice try.
And what's the final nail in the coffin?
|WHAT? I missed the deadline? NOOO!|
Rep. Vargas's own press release:
Washington, D.C. (January 4, 2017) —Yesterday, Congressman Juan Vargas (CA-51) reintroduced the Chicano Park Preservation Act (H.R. 199) in the U.S. House of Representatives, continuing the efforts to designate Chicano Park as a National Historic Landmark.
Notice the different bill number.
The first bill died, folks. Simple as that.
“Chicano Park is a center of cultural history in San Diego and we should continue to advocate for it,” said Rep. Vargas. “The story of Chicano Park is important to the people of our community. It highlights years of community accomplishments through activism and it deserves to be preserved for years to come.”
Excuse me? What about centers which preserve and celebrate American history? Chicano ideological views are anti-American, pro La Raza, or "racist."
The Chicano Park Preservation Act passed in the House last December, but the bill was not considered by the U.S. Senate before the conclusion of the 114th Congress. This bill instructs the Secretary of the Interior to conduct a thorough study of Chicano Park in order to evaluate its national significance and determine the feasibility of the park becoming a National Historic Landmark.
The bill didn't make it. HA! HA!
|Chicano Park? You're Fired!|
TOLD YA SO!
The park is located under the San Diego-Coronado Bridge in historic Barrio Logan, a San Diego community with a heavy population of Mexican Americans. It is adorned with murals, sculptures, and beautiful landscaping. In 1980, the park was designated as an official historic site by the San Diego Historical Site Board. In 2013, Chicano Park was listed on the National Register of Historic Places due to its association with the local Chicano civil rights movement in San Diego.
"Chicano Civil Rights?" WHAT?!
What about the natural rights of American citizens? What about the final say of the men and women who live in this country and pay the taxes for all federal projects? Not one penny of American money or one inch of American soil should celebrate anti-American, racist sentiment--at all.
Chicano politics all about taking parts of this country and "restoring them to Mexico." Anyone who pushes this perverse ideology
Congressman Vargas took an oath to uphold and defend the United States Constitution.
For him to push funding to rename and transform a piece of American soil into propaganda for a racist, national-socialist, anti-American movement is treasonous.
Call Congressman Juan Vargas' office, and tell him to pull his "Chicano Park" bill NOW!
