Latino Movement USA led by Marxist - Juan Jose Gutierrez - Key International ANSWER Member

Latino Movement USA Led By Marxist - Juan Jose Gutierrez - Key International ANSWER Member

May 1, 2006 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Juan Jose Gutierrez is the director of Latino Movement USA and a member of the steering committee of the Los Angeles branch of International A.N.S.W.E.R, a hard core Marxist organization which was responsible for organizing the huge illegal alien protest in Los Angeles on March 25 and is intimately and inextricably involved in the planning and exectution of similar protests today, appropriately the traditional day to support the "International Workers of the World."

Mr. Gutierrez is being given great exposure today; he was this morning even on happy-talk-television Fox & Friends, identified only as being associated with Latino Movement USA.

We have obtained an MP3 of an address that Mr. Gutierrez made at an LA forum hosted by the Party for Socialism & Liberation [PSL] March 10, 2006:

From the PSL website - "Director, Latino Movement USA, Gutierrez was an invited guest at the inauguration of new Bolivian president Evo Morales. He discusses the huge changes happening now in Bolivia with this inauguration the first indigenous President in Latin Ameria who declared the "colonial period was over" as millions watched live on television."

Greeting the audiences as "comrades" Mr. Gutierrez' main point was explaining why the election of Evo Morales in Bolivia should be seen as an important victory for those who support the world-wide Marxist revolution and that Morales should not be seen simply as a Bolivian "nationalist," but as a hard-core Marxist warrior.

Gutierrez talked fondly about the Nazi regime in its infancy visiting Bolivia to acquaint itself with the mystical and power symbols of the native peoples and stated that the Bolivians that he talked to believed that the only reason why the Third Reich failed was that the Nazis turned the swastika upside down.

Gutierrez talked about Morales having become the "...supreme leader of the indigenous [American] peoples..."

Gutierrez stated that the election of Morales meant an "end of colonialism" and the "beginning of a new era" [which Gutierrez suggested was code for the continuing worker's revolution] and that Morales' understood what he was saying was a "message being addressed to entire native American population" and "setting forth a course for all the peoples of the continent..."

While observing the "crowning" of Morales, Gutierrez "could not think of anything else but of the fact that...that 39 years before that day and the age of 39 Ernesto Che Guevara's life was taken by...agents of the CIA."

Lest one get the impression that Guevara was not an internationalist, that, "he wasn't a real Marxist," Gutierrez suggests we look to, "Fidel [who] in his introduction [to Che's revolutionary tract] Bolivian Diary...in his introduction Fidel said the people of the communist party of Bolivia who fail to support Che in his quest to ignite the revolution in the South American countries ...[have] nothing more than a prehistoric mentality..."

Gutierrez, director of Latino Movement USA and key member of International ANSWER then states, "I don't think he could have said it better...people throughout the world who never forgot the message of Che."

Gutierrez feels that what Che did, what Fidel did was, "nothing more than what Evo Morales was doing there," and that "Che's ideology [was] nothing more than a continuation of the ancient ways of life...that remain alive today"

Continuing on Gutierrez concludes his remarks about his first day in Bolivia saying that "it goes without saying that I felt Che's revolutionary presence ...there becoming alive...the time has come to take up the banner of reigniting revolutionary fervor across the continent and across the world."

Addendum from the ANSWER website, use the above to parse the following for it true meaning:

"A.N.S.W.E.R. believes that all working people should back the demand: "Amnesty! Full Rights for All Immigrants!"

Corporations and politicians want to brutalize the people who work the hardest to keep society functioning - immigrant workers...They want to repress immigrants so their corporate allies get more profits. Repressive laws and terror campaigns allow them to exploit immigrants even more, driving down wages and working conditions for all workers. That's why racist politicians and media hacks are scapegoating immigrants for everything wrong in society. But immigrants aren't the real cause of unemployment or crime - it's the rotten system that puts profit over people.

A.N.S.W.E.R. says to Congress and all the anti-immigrant racists that "No Human Being is Illegal!" Racism against immigrants emanates from the same forces behind the criminal war to conquer and control the wealth of Iraq.

There is a force strong enough to defeat the racist warmongers - the united people's movement. That is what changes history.

A.N.S.W.E.R. is working to build a movement that can transform society, disarm the Pentagon and win back all that has been stolen from us - from Los Angeles to Baghdad, Mexico City to Manila, Port au Prince to Gaza and everywhere. Join us in the struggle for amnesty and against war, racism and bigotry!"

The Immigration Wars
By William R. Hawkins

The march down 16th Street to Lafayette Park, across from the White House, passed in front of my office building. There were still plenty of Mexican and other Latin flags being waved, as well as signs written in Spanish. There were also many placards from the A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition (Act Now to Stop War & End Racism), the leading leftist antiwar group that was one of the main organizers of the march. On their website, the column demanding "amnesty and full rights for immigrants" sits next to the column boosting of the protests in March marking the third anniversary of the invasion of Iraq, and above the articles condemning anti-terrorist operations in Gaza and the Philippines.

Casting its propaganda in terms of halting U.S. imperialism, A.N.S.W.E.R. wants to change the direction of American politics by enfranchising a Third World electorate. Its efforts should be considered a companion tactic to that of the International Endowment for Democracy (IED) which was founded in March at about the same time the marches started. Its board of directors includes Ramsey Clark, Gore Vidal and Howard Zinn, all of whom have ties to A.N.S.W.E.R. as well as a gaggle of Marxist professors who specialize in anti-imperialist studies. The aim of the IED is to help finance "progressive" politics throughout the United States with foreign money. In its "Urgent Appeal to the People of the World," IED asked for "donations, no matter how small, from all those victimized by our government's actions." The IED hopes "to use foreign monies to help build a real democracy in the country that needs it most, the U.S.A." A democracy expanded by the influx of alien– and alienated, voters. This leftist strategy of using foreign funders and immigrants to take over American government amounts to an invasion plot.

Some proponents of amnesty argue that to oppose open borders is to retreat into isolationism. Yet, it is the left-wing groups organizing the "open border" rallies who desire to see a withdrawal of U.S. power from the outside world and a collapse of America's global influence, which they consider to be the manifestations of an evil empire.

My favorite banner was a large one carried by six marchers which read, in both English and Spanish, "For A World Without Borders And Law." It is commonly heard that "9/11 changed everything." For the large and well-organized immigrant rights community, which is heavily funded by left-wing foundations like Ford, Soros and MacArthur, this has meant a more active drive to keep the borders open, if not disappear all together. Their aim is not just to legalize the "undocumented" horde that is already here, but to make sure the flow continues.

The march went past the headquarters of the AFL-CIO. Some unions have endorsed immigrant rights in an attempt to find new recruits, and the AFL-CIO supported the cross country "freedom ride" conducted on behalf of illegals in 2003. However, the AFL-CIO's arch rival, the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) has been the more active force behind the current wave of nation-wide protests. The SEIU, which claims to be the country's largest immigrant union with 1.8 million members, led several other unions in a walk out from the AFL-CIO in July 2005 on the grounds that the traditional unions were not playing an active enough role in politics.

The SEIU endorsed Howard Dean for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2004, and at its national convention voted to end the U.S. "occupation of Iraq" and withdraw all U.S. troops, putting the union firmly in the "anti-imperialist" camp. The SEIU has called for "the redirecting of the nation's resources from inflated military spending to meeting the needs of working families for health care, education, a clean environment, housing and a decent standard of living."

In the U.S., leftists have long believed that importing a new proletariat is the quickest way to build a mass movement to challenge a middle America that has been trending towards the right. Democratic Sen. Ted Kennedy understands this, and wants illegals rushed into the voting booths via an amnesty program. This is much more radical than President Bush's original guest worker plan, which envisioned immigrants staying only a few years to work before going back home. Senators John McCain, Chuck Hagel and other Republicans supporting rapid "citizenship" seem ignorant of this larger left-wing agenda.

The April 11 front page color photo in the Express tabloid, distributed by the Washington Post to commuters, should awaken all Republicans and conservatives to the danger. The photo centered on a demonstrator holding a sign that read "Today We March, Tomorrow We Vote."

In an odd alliance with radical labor and antiwar groups, major business organizations like the Chamber of Commerce and the Business Roundtable have endorsed amnesty programs for illegal workers to insure a pool of "cheap labor." But what may be "cheap" for a company can be very expensive for society. After generations of trying to alleviate poverty and expand the middle class, we are now being told that poverty is so critical to the economy that more of it must be imported.

Yet, polls consistently show that the vast majority of Americans do not want to see their tax dollars used to subsidize "cheap labor" with the welfare checks, remedial education programs, health care benefits and larger prisons that come with any expansion of a destitute Marxist-style "working class" favored in some dim-witted business circles. I say dim-witted because the business community will be the first to suffer if there is a demographic shift to the left in American politics. For business leaders to advocate the enfranchisement of millions of illegal aliens would be the perfect example of the old adage "penny wise, but pound foolish."
