Goodbye USA, Hello United States of Mexico


Vodka ad shows 'Absolut world' in which California, Arizona, others secede.

A new ad for Absolut vodka reconfigures North America according to the aspirations of many Mexicans, who believe the U.S. Southwest was stolen and should be returned.
Over a redrawn map of the U.S., the ad by the New York-based Absolut Spirits Co. declares, "In an Absolut World," noted columnist and blogger Michelle Malkin.
Major Hispanic civil rights groups in the U.S., such as the National Council of La Raza, are tied to movements advocating a "reconquista," or reconquest, of territory lost when Mexico signed the 1848 Treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo at the end of the Mexican-American War.
As WND reported in 2006, Rep. Charles Norwood, R-Ga., called on La Raza to renounce its support of the Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan – which sees "The Race" as part of an ethnic group that one day will reclaim Aztlan, the mythical birthplace of the Aztecs. In Chicano folklore, Aztlan includes California, Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico and parts of Colorado and Texas.

In 2002, a prominent Chicano activist and University of California at Riverside professor, Armando Navarro, told WND he believed secession is inevitable if demographic and social trends continue.

Wow! Why would they do that? They have to know it would get people upset. That does it - no more Absolut for me. Just to be sure, no more vodka at all! That'll teach them.

It just seems meant to encourage people south of the border to sneek into the US and try to take over the US as if they have a right to do so. I take great exception to that!! As all Americans sould.
