They wanted to check out the scenery. They also wanted to look at the imagery and see all the stuff that was there.
I had heard very disturbing reports and saw unseemly pictures of everything painted on the walls and along the freeways.
Here are some pictures that I had seen:
Does that picture above seem welcoming?
It looks like they are telling "Yankees" to go home.
Check out the entire video that I took of my time there.
It started out with meeting three other men prepared to enter the park:
Pretty scary stuff at the outset.
I saw at least eight police vehicles drive down the off-ramp to go toward the park.
Eventually we walked to the park. Roger Ogden showed up and brought pizza and water to the event.
We were going to enjoy a picnic and see the park.
I had been told that a Nazi swastika is located in the park.
Check out what it looks like here:
People tell me that that is a bent swastika, and it's not really a Nazi symbol.
Then one member of our team informed me that a Nazi was one of the founding activists to set up Chicano Park.
This Chicano ideology is a violent, anti-American, bigoted ideology.
This concurrence of hate is based on the lie that California and other states in the Southwest somehow still belong to Mexico, or that the territory should be ceded away from the United States to form a new, mythical territory called Aztlan. One radical professor, Armando Navarro, wrote a textbook in order to remove American power and respect from the Southwestern United States.
And he gets paid with taxpayer dollars to do just that.
The whole Chicano movement is anti-Anglo, anti-American, and anti-Semitic.
In the video that I took, you will notice someone shame me--or rather attempt to shame me--by shouting: "You are probably Jewish!"
What difference does it make whether I am or not?
You will notice in the video that we arrived at the park and within ten minutes brown supremacist hordes showed up, hiding behind brown masks, wearing brown berets bandanas over their faces.
Why do they hide their faces? What are they ashamed of?!
They surrounded us, and in response the police surrounded our table, where we were trying to eat and and drink the picnic which Roger Ogden had brought to share with us.
The menacing presence of these Brown Supremacists was something to behold. They shouted slurs and hate at us.
What was their problem? We five men had shown up to get something to eat and to document what was in the park. Why is that these hordes violently threatened and menaced us to drive us out of the park?
The police in charge of security urged us to leave, and they offered to walk us to our cars. They followed us, these Brown Power hordes. There was so much hate in their eyes, and they shouted such evil things at us. One guy charged a gate near Roger Ogden to try and startle him, too.
Why did some of those protesters act like such animals? Why do they hate people who do not look like them?
The hate is intense. This anti-American hate must be exposed.
We demand that the Department of Justice and the Department of Homeland Security investigate and put an end to this enforced segregation in Chicano Park. Every section of the United States is American territory, and Americans of any and all backgrounds should be able to go anywhere they want to and exercise free speech!
