Last year Jez Turner, the organizer of the London Forum, asked me in a LF meeting in London if there were nationalists in Mexico. I was left aghast. Did Jez, who’s a very fine gentleman, know that in Latin America there are many races, the most prolific mestizos and the Amerinds, followed by “pardos” of African, Amerind and Caucasian descent? Who are the nationalists? Has each group its own nation (real whites, only a tiny minority here)?
This May, the First International Identitarian Congress was held in the city of Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico. In the event the commemoration of the 100th birthday of Mexican revisionist Salvador Borrego, who in the photo appears at the center with the umbrella, was also held. (I respect Borrego: in Mexico single-handedly he has challenged, with erudite books, the Allied narrative about World War II.) Well-known revisionists attended: Ernst Zündel, Mark Weber, the Spanish Pedro Varela (incarcerated in Spain in 2010-2012 for publishing politically incorrect books) and Alberto Buela of the Argentinean New Right. White nationalist David Duke also attended.
After returning from the trip, Duke wrote on his website that he had met with Mexican nationalists who told him very clearly that they want to discourage immigration to the United States. This sounds wonderful. What Duke ignores is that, according to Ricardo, a blogger that I know personally, his new allies “have had a long history of territorial claims with historical foundations on the American [US] soil”!
Aztlán? Is this the kind of “nationalists” that gentlemen like Jez Turner and Dave Duke expected from Latin Americans? Ricardo also said (my translation):
After the meeting the great personalities return to their white countries and homes: Duke to the US, Zündel to Canada, Varela to Spain, Iturralde to Argentina, and all happily share the results of the conference, with a good taste for having collaborated towards an Identitarian effort. What they ignore is that the mafia of opportunists who gravitate around Borrego have presented them a face and even conditions that they really do not respect.
Make no mistake: these Mexicans are no believers of the 14 words, not even remotely.
