Why Don't Mexicans Stand Up to Their Leaders?

[¡Ask a Mexican!] And are Muslims better fighters than Mexicans?

DEAR MEXICAN: I'm from an Arabic-speaking country. After my education is completed here, I'll be returning to my country, Kuala Luampur, the Garden City of Lights. Since I've been in the United States, I've noticed a rising tide of hatred toward Mexicans. I've talked to Mexicans, and they all say they're proud to be Mexican. I am curious, sir: Why is it that Mexicans don't stand up to the corrupt and racist government in Mexico? In my opinion, it's going to get worse for Mexicans in the United States. I've read where there's a new constitution that has been secretly written, that they're just waiting for the right time to implement it. It's going to be geared toward a police state; English will be the official language. I've asked some people in government about this, and some said there's a push to revoke the amendment about children of illegals born on American soil. I strongly suspect your people are in mortal danger. In my research, I also found the U.S. is preparing for civil unrest. U.S. Special Forces, NATO troops and more than a million mercenaries are already deployed in this country. Just remember: America is notorious for using germ warfare on people of color. It was used on African-Americans in the early part of the 20th century, not to mention HIV in Africa. The Pentagon has vials of viruses in laboratories that can wipe out tens of millions of people! Don't think they won't use it on your people. In my opinion, the worst is yet to come in this country. You see what they're trying to do to us Muslims. But Muslims are fighters—we believe God helps those who help themselves. Good luck to you; your people will need it.

DEAR MOHAMMEDAN: On one mano, you come off as someone who probably believes Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 was an Illuminati plot at the behest of the Reptilians to crash the Bohemian Grove. On the other hand, didja hear how there were smallpox samples in the back of a freezer at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that someone had absent-mindedly left there for decades? Freaky stuff, this country.

¡ASK A MEXICAN! VIDEOS ARE BACK! Gentle cabrones, after a years-long hiatus, I've relaunched the video version of this columna. Follow my weekly rants on Twitter (click on the hashtag #askamexican) and ask away. Enjoy!

Ask the Mexican at themexican@askamexican.net, be his fan on Facebook, follow him on Twitter or ask him a video question at youtube.com/askamexicano!

But this is ¡Ask a Mexican!, not Coast to Coast AM, so let's concentrate on the Mexican parts of your pregunta. You ask why Mexicans don't stand up to the Mexican government. It's the same question Know Nothings continually pose to Mexicans (and now to those Central American undocu-kids who have bigots' chonis in a bunch—vete a la chingada, mugroso Murrieta) yet never ask of their own ancestors. Simple answer: The whole reason Mexico is even in the First World is because migrants stood up to the PRI via remittances and votes, just as had previous groups of other immigrants. Then you imply Muslims are fighters but Mexicans aren't. With my respect to the ummah, Mexicans in los Estados Unidos are the greatest warriors on Earth. We have the sangre of the Moors who ruled over the Spaniards for más than 700 years, the blood of the Spaniards who ultimately won, the wisdom of our indigenous ancestors, the valor of our American home, and the knowledge that the ultimate battlefield is in the bedroom—and there, we're like pinche Saladin.

Bowman, I am glad you are going back to your country after getting your education (I hope my taxes didn't subsidize your education). May Ali Baba be with you. Please don't come back!

Gustavo, I´ve been living in Costa Rica for a year. If you go to the facebook page of the Federacion de surf de Costa Rica, you´ll see a multi cultural reality hispanic, black and white (kids of americans who settled here) professional surfers. Why does California surfing not have a similar diversity?????

Like Sun Tzu said in regards to stratagem, "He will win who knows when to fight and when not to fight…" It's all about picking the battles, you don't attack the serpent at it's fangs. Me entiendes Mendez?

they dont stand up to THEIR government via illegal acts b/c they will be arrested



but in the USA they already have seen that "illegal" is always illegal and that "is" isnt always "is"

Right, Mick, I was trying to be funny and ask why the Pilgrims came to America in the first place and didn't fight in their original homeland. I'll keep my day job : ]

Our history is complex. What our ancestors went through is similar to the rape the United States is going through by the big corporations. That's why we must study history and learn from it. This is a great time for us because we are aware or should be. As for not being great fighters I strongly dispute this, and this includes our women. Remember the Adelitas!

Actually they left cause they were tax Dodgers and wanted to exploit America for its resources with out having to pay for it hence why they killed the native Americans.

Ese Islamico esta loco en el coco. The reason Mexicans don't stand up to corruption is because the powers that be don't give a shit about corruption as long as they're getting paid. Every Mexican knows this, so apathy runs rampant and so everybody stops caring. I should start my own "Ask A Refried Mexican" column. I'll give it y'all straightforward and understandable, without the abstruse intricate stories and explanations.

Damn! Roti gave the whole plot away!  One thing he didn't mention was that the chemtrails from planes landing at LAX and other southland airports have special ebola virus droplets.  Obama was just in town dropping off the antidote to his rich jewish banker bosses.  As soon as he leaves the whole state will become instantly infected.


Gus' answer is beyond incomprehensible.  But the reason mexicans don't stand up to their corrupt leaders is because once they throw out the cabrones, who are they going to replace them with?  Other mexicans? Tu sabes lo qua pasa


BTW Benito Juarez was a free mason.  Put that in your tin foil hat and fumelo.

Ah I see so just like the "Arab Spring" in which the people in those countries stood up to the ruling parties, overthrew them, then achieved the installment of a non-dictatorship government (or whatever they were hoping to achieve).....Mexicans did the same thing and not only are in fact fighters, but also brought change to their country? OK I see...thanks for the info.


.....you really didn't answer his question at all but instead created your own paper tigers out of events that took place hundreds of years ago. Then ended off with the battlefield in the bedroom comment. I'm all for providing passive-aggressive / tongue-in-cheek responses but come on....it was a good question if you ask me.

QUIT IT with the "we were here before you" bit. If this was still a Spanish territory, this country would mirror the crap hole that is Mexico at which point there would be no need for northbound immigration. You can't argue both points logically.

And by the way, no; I don't think it makes me a bigot that I fear this country cannot take on the responsibility of a horde of undocumented children when my own children keep getting the funding to their education slashed and cannot get a doctors appointment anytime in the next 3 weeks due to....well...hordes of --- you get the picture

It makes the most sense to me that we figure out how to take care of ourselves before we take on the responsibility of taking care of people who hail from a country which refuses to take care of its own people.That's not bigotry, it's logic.

@centrifuge909... ..WE MEXIS WERE here LONNNGGG before  YOUR  ancestors fled THEIR  shit hole countries and settled illegally in MEXICAN territory.There is no need to ARGUE this point..its a FACT ok? 

OWN IT!  BEsides, this country ALREADY mirrors the third world countries you look down upon with disdain. We have... corruption at the highest  levels of government, an ever widening wealth gap with all the money locked on top,crappy or non existent health care,propaganda shoved down our throats by "news"outfits like FOX news screaming "blame MESSHEECO!" or blame muslims, gays, blacks!" etc..etc. And Americans did this all by themselves!!

@centrifuge909 If you want look at a country that refuses to take care of its own people, look no further than the USA. Cut education, cut food stamps, cut unemployment compensation, fight tooth and nail against more people having access to health care, concentrate more wealth in the hands of a few wealthy families, etc. The fact is we are becoming more like Mexico every day and it's not the fault of immigrants from there. It is the doing of the  policies of our own government. Thank you, I hadn't thought of this before.

@WhiteFEAR "WE MEXIS " What a stupid thing to say. The only claim to this area for mexico is that the spanish empire held it. You and the king of Spain can go to he!!. mexico barely settled this land. btw....how's that Mexican space station doing? the moon mission you guys did? how is the mexican iphone software? oh wait...never mind.

@WhiteFEAR 
OH....so there's no reason for Latin immigration to the US as the US is already a shithole country just like Mexico?! I see...got it...makes no sense but whatever you say.
