The Battle For Baldwin Park: Conflict Between Americans and Mexican Immigrants in California

May 20, 2005: The Battle For Baldwin Park: Conflict Between Americans and Mexican Immigrants in California

Mexicans or Terrorists?
The Battle for Baldwin Park
by Linda Muller – Team America

Osama Bin Laden Rules… Zarqawi the Gringo Killer… Yes! Yes!

Warning to readers: The transcripts and photos from the following video clips contain very offensive statements. These are only a few examples of the angry racist slurs shouted at the Americans who dared to protest the monument in Baldwin Park, California.


Many in our government and the media deny the existence of the militant Mexican plans for the the reconquista of Aztlan. They say it is just another conspiracy theory. Others say it is only an idea supported by a few radical hispanics.

What happened in Baldwin Park, is happening in cities across America. It is supported by all the major Mexican organizations including LULAC, LaRaza, and MALDEF. These groups get funding from corporations and American taxpayers. Elected officials attend their events and accept their awards. The media quotes them as sources in news reports. Yet they continue to deny that any of these groups are a danger to American citizens.

Read the transcripts and view the videos below. Ask all who continue to support open borders to take time to see the footage and then decide. Is it all a myth? Or is the reconquista of Aztlan well under way?


Joe Turner from Save Our State organized the Baldwin Park rally to protest a monument funded by taxpayers on city property. The inscribed text promotes the radical and militant belief in the reconquista of Aztlan [the take-over of the US southwest (Aztlan) by Mexicans].

One passage on the monument laments the presence of whites in America by stating, It was better before they came.

Another section reads: This land was Mexican once, was Indian always and is, And will be again.

Joe said, “This divisive monument is funded by our tax dollars and we will not tolerate its anti-American message. This is not art. This is not freedom of expression. This is government-sanctioned sedition.”
Comment from Joe Turner

I spoke with Joe about the rally and asked him to say a few words to fellow Americans across the USA – many who will be shocked and outraged when they see these videos:

Joe Turner – Save Our State –

On May 14th in Baldwin Park, 50 patriotic Americans were greeted by 500 rabid anti-American socialists, anarchists, Brown Berets, and Mechistas.
Numerous times we were told that this land is Mexico and that they were taking it back. Numerous times racists epithets were screamed our way. One person even hurled a full water bottle at our side and sent one of our activists to the hospital with bleeding in the brain.

It is of utmost importance to emphasize one singular point. Everything that we stated that monument stood for, embodied and represented was reinforced and confirmed by the actions of those opposing us today. To suggest that the monument doesn't reinforce the reconquista of Aztlan and hatred toward Americans is simply delusional.

The Videos – from Charles Kirkby

The video clips on this page are samples of an upcoming full video of the Baldwin Park Standoff. They were produced by Charles Kirkby, the host of “What's Right With America,” a television show in Santa Barbara county California. The Baldwin Park show will air on Wednesday, May 25th.

When I spoke with Charles, he said the video may become available on the internet sometime in the near future. I asked him to comment on his experience that day in Baldwin Park:

From Charles Kirkby, Host/Producer “What's Right With America!”

I started the day expecting to cover the “Baldwin Park monument.” The monument, although still important that day, became a secondary issue. The anti-American, anti-Caucasian counter protest is what truly became the news of the day.
Screams of “death to the rednecks” and “Zarqawi the Gringo killer, yes!, yes!” displayed the mood and the message of the counter protesters. I particularly remember when our group of “Gringos” was told to get out of the shade and into the sun so we could get skin cancer and die.

This was not about Illegal Immigrants who want to do the jobs that no American will do. This was about Reconquista, revolution and taking back the Western United States for Mexico.

Fortunately, I have my own forum to broadcast this disturbing footage and report the truth about what happened. “What's Right With America!” is a live, weekly television program in Santa Barbara, Ca. It airs every Wednesday night from 8-9 PM on Channel 17. I look forward to further exposing this explosive and important story.

I will be making my best attempt to cover this growing controversy wherever it may happen. If the major media won't show it, you can bet that I will. I believe the American people have the right to know the truth about the pro-Illegal Immigration movement.

Dottie said she was shocked that she felt safer on the Mexican border than on a street in southern California. “It's incredible to me that I could spend 26 days on the border as a Minuteman and I had to come to a public street in California to be attacked by the very thing I was rallying against.”

The American Southwest is “Stolen Land” … and “United Snakes of America” ??
They are not angry. They don't want to take over our country. It's all a myth.

Proud Americans!

A Few Side Notes:

When I heard about the monument in Baldwin Park from Joe Turner, I was reminded of a few other incidents occurring there. Now 80% Mexican, Baldwin Park is making a quite name for itself. Dottie Dalton, says she is happy never to step foot there again. It's not a fit place for an American citizen to be.

Baldwin Park is where an illegal alien from Mexico, Armando Garcia, is wanted for two attempted murders along with the murder of Los Angeles County Sheriff's Deputy David March. Garcia was deported four times prior to the killing. He ran to the border and escaped to Mexico. Note that Mexico refuses to extradite criminals when the fugitive might end up with the death penalty. Garcia is still roaming free.

Last Wednesday, a 24-year veteran police officer with the Baldwin Park CA Highway Patrol [CHP] was seriously injured when he was thrown from his motorcycle and left clinging to the hood of Dani Fuentes car. When the officer lost his grip and fell, Fuentes accelerated and ran over him. He fled the scene but was captured before he had a chance to escape to Mexico. He is held on $50,000 bail. The officer [name withheld by request] remains in the hospital. See news story…

The Communist website – – is pronouncing a win for their side and claiming Americans lost the battle for Baldwin Park.
They praised MECHA, FIST, LaRaza, and other reconquista groups for confronting the Americans. They write on their website, “After a nearly two-hour standoff, the racists [Americans] and their police escort threw in the towel. Their tails between their legs and their heads bowed in defeat they were led away with the sound of anti-racist [anti-American] victory cheers and the chanted, heartfelt message from the Baldwin Park community, “Dont come back….

See an example of Aztlan's handiwork here [Warning – very crude and violent].

Joe Turner – Save Our State –
In the bizarre world that we live in, merely opposing illegal immigration and all the peripheral issues that go along with it is justification for being labeled a racist, bigot or a vigilante.

In countless interviews, I am asked my thoughts when our opponents accuse us of being a racist organization. I constantly wonder why reporters simply regurgitate unsubstantiated claims and in the process perform the devil's bidding.

Yet, as evidenced by today's happenings, it is so crystal clear that our opponents are projecting their bigotry and hatred onto us. Today, we saw some of the most vile hatred and bigotry expressed towards us by the Mechistas.

Everything that we argued the monument stood for was reinforced by the hundreds of activists who opposed our presence in Baldwin Park. Numerous times we were told that this land is Mexico and that they were taking it back. Numerous times racist epithets were hurled away. One person even hurled a full water bottle at our side and sent one of our activists to the hospital with bleeding in the brain. Unfortunately, she is now in the intensive care unit and we are all praying and hoping for the best.

What started as a rather peaceful and uneventful protest on our side ended in sheer hostility. The counter demonstrators were supposed to rally at the other end of the metrolink station, but proceeded to outflank the Baldwin Park Police Department and traveled through a local neighborhood so that they could formally confront us at the intersection allocated to us for our protest.

In waves they came. Soon outnumbered 500-50 in a community that is 85% Hispanic, crowd control soon became an issue. Rants, chants, and Mexican flags filled the air. They spit on, dragged, and kicked an American flag over the ground. It is imperative to note that that was the only American flag displayed by our opponents.

At the conclusion of the rally, a twenty year veteran of the force shared that todays rally was the most intense and largest he has seen in his career. And intense it was, for at one point, I was informed by BPPD that they could no longer ensure our safety. Mind you, there were upwards of 70+ officers on duty in riot gear. Emergency reserves were summoned from various local agencies. A police helicopter circled above for the entire duration. Officers with sniper rifles rested on a roof above.

In fact, we were told that a credible source of intelligence suggested that violent attack on our group was in the making and that two hundred more demonstrators may be en route (which would have presumably overwhelmed the already taxed resources). Surrounded by hostile forces on all sides, we were evacuated by the police department to the police station one block away until the crowd dispersed.

We did not hurl racist epithets or make bigoted hate-filled comments. We did not throw objects at our opponents or resort to violence. Yet, we are racist vigilantes!

It is of utmost importance to emphasize one singular point. Everything that we stated that monument stood for, embodied, and represented, was reinforced and confirmed by the actions of those opposing us today. To suggest that the monument doesn't reinforce the reconquista of Aztlan and hatred toward whites is simply delusional.


By Frosty Wooldridge – November 25, 1994
They come to do the work that Americans wont do. They come for a better life. They come in droves. Over 4,000 per night cross our Arizona borders. They number in excess of 15 million. They come from an endless line out of the Third World. What most Americans dont realizethey come to colonize and ultimately conquer our four Border Statesbut it doesnt end there.

One look at California illustrates a successful invasion in process. What are the signs? Last year, according to demographic experts, 800,000 American citizens fled California. Why? Los Angeles stands as a clone of Mexico City. Slums, trash, disease, gangs, drugs, bankrupting hospitals, schools in chaos and about the only persons speaking English are Jay Leno and his guests on the Tonight Show. Over 9.2 million Mexicans transplanted themselves into the four Border Statesand beyondall the way to Maine, Iowa, Minnesota, Oregon, Georgia, North Carolina and Michigan.

They are not assimilating, not speaking English, not respecting our laws, paying taxes, driving with licenses, carrying insurance or investing as American citizens.

They lead Reconquista of Aztlan. Mexico feels our four border states were stolen by the United States. They maintain a long-term plan for reconquering their land. Its called El Plan de Aztlan. Read about it

They write, “In the spirit of a new people that is conscious not only of its proud historical heritage but also of the brutal “gringo” invasion of our territories, we, the Chicano inhabitants of the northern land of Aztlan from whence came our forefathers, reclaiming the land of their birth and consecrating the determination of our people of the sun– declare that the call of our blood is our power, our responsibility, and our inevitable destiny.”

Who are “they?” They are militant, cunning and growing leaders infiltrating the upper ranks of the government in California. U.S. House Representative Joe Baca of California works for illegal aliens by hamstringing the U.S. Border Patrol, supporting the Dream Act, Special Order 40 and other aspects that assist La Raza. It stands for”For the race, everything, for those outside the race, nothing.” Baca supports the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund and several others.

Talk about “racism!” What do you think will happen when these wonderful folks gain power? If you swallow a scorpion, you will get stung to death from the inside.

Baca gave a speech, which borders on treason, “its a great feeling, you know, La Raza, its about increasing our numbers because were in a civil war.” This is a man who swore to defend the U.S. Constitution but engages in another calling. He enjoys powerful backup in men like Art Torres, former California State Senator, Jose Gutierrez, Professor at the University of Texas, Mario Obledo founder of MALDEF and Armando Navarro, Professor of ethics at the University of California.

Their website continues its subversion of America, “We are free and sovereign to determine those tasks which are justly called for by our house, our land, the sweat of our brows, and by our hearts. Aztlan belongs to those who plant the seeds, water the fields, and gather the crops and not to the foreign Europeans. With our heart in our hands and our hands in the soil, we declare the independence of our mestizo nation.

Before the world, before all of North America, before all our brothers in the bronze continent, we are a nation, we are a union of free pueblos, we are Aztlan.”

What you fellow American must understand is the growing fact that they mean business. California isnt that far away from where you are. You can see their numbers growing in your community. Your kids are suffering with their language chaos in your classrooms. They are undermining and under cutting Americas working class.

“We are committed to the idea and philosophy of El Plan de Aztlan, we can only conclude that social, economic, cultural, and political independence is the only road to total liberation from oppression, exploitation and racism. Our struggle then must be for the control of our barrios, campos, pueblos, lands, our economy, our culture, and our political life. El Plan commits all levels of Chicano society – the barrio, the campo, the ranchero, the writer, the teacher, the worker, the professional – to La Causa. Nationalism is the common denominator that all members of La Raza can agree upon.”

“We must control barrios, the pueblo, the campo, the land, the poor, the middle class, the professional-all committed to the liberation of La Razafor the very young there will no longer be acts of juvenile delinquency, but revolutionary actsour culture unites and educates the family of La Raza towards liberationwe must insure that our writers, poets, musicians, and artists produce literature and art that is appealing to our people and relates to our revolutionary culture. Our cultural values of life, family, and home will serve as a powerful weapon to defeat the gringo dollar value system and encourage the process of love and brotherhoodpolitically when we are a majority, we will controlLa Familia de La Razapresented at every meeting, demonstration, confrontation, courthouse, institution, administration, church, school, tree, building, car, and every place of human existencecreation of an independent local, regional, and national political partya nation autonomous and free – culturally, socially, economically, and politically- will make its own decisions on the usage of our lands, the taxation of our goods, the utilization of our bodies for war, the determination of justice (reward and punishment), and the profit of our sweatEl Plan de Aztlan is the plan of liberation!”

If that doesnt amount to treason within our own country, I dont know what does. This invasion manifests Third World Momentum. Mexicans cant run their own country with any degree of success, so, they overrun our country with their desperately poor, diseased and dispossessed. From historical perspective, you can expect that the new Aztlan will be much like the quagmire of Mexico Citytransplanting itself into our country.

Look in horror as Colonias “new neighborhoods” expand along the 2,000-mile border with Mexico from Brownsville, Texas to San Diego, California. They feature no running water, sewage, electricity or roads.

They house desperately poor, uneducated and diseased slums from Third World Mexico. According to the New York Times, in 1985 they numbered 170,000. By 1995, they hit 500,000. In 2000, they reached 1,000,000. The Times predicted their numbers at 20 million by 2021.

Can you imagine the disease-terror complications to our U.S. population as their numbers grow into a monster much like Bombay or Calcutta?

The next question is, why arent our leaders arresting and prosecuting such men and women of Aztlan. Why is our Congress not enforcing our immigration laws against such an invasion? With California standing at three million illegal aliens, what happens when they reach 10 million illegals? What is the number in your state?

How bad will it become? Short answer: much worse! Unless you take action.

We need a 10-year moratorium on all immigration into the United States and we need U.S. troops on our borders. We need repatriation of illegals back to their own countries. Knowledge without taking action is worthless.
