About half an hour into the film Sicario, a convoy of U.S. law enforcement vehicles drives past an overpass in Juarez, Mexico where the bodies of people are hanging, mutilated and decapitated.
The people were supposed to have been killed by the cartels in a brutal fashion as a warning to others.
It is easy to forget because we are so used to Mexican migrants in the U.S. being gardeners or running taco trucks but these same people are descended from groups like the Aztecs, as brutal and vicious a people as ever walked the earth. For the Aztecs human sacrifice was a way of life, with some accounts of mass sacrifices of tens of thousands of people over the course of a few days. Mel Gibson’s Apocalypto is a great look at this type of Mesoamerican “civilization”.
Their descendants are the mestizo and Indian people of Mexico and Central America and while the ones most of us see seem tame, they are not all that way. Not at all.
Meet Francisco Oropeza. Mt. Oropeza is a 39 year old Mexican for some reason living in Texas and he got a little irate last night and did what any rational person would do.
The Hondurans living next to him, again living in Texas for some reason, asked him to stop shooting his rifle because their baby was trying to sleep so of course he shot and executed 5 people. This Mexican national seemed able to come up with an AR-15 as well as a handful of other firearms.
As the American Southwest fills back up with people we kicked out, it is going to take on their character. Drunk Mexicans with AR-15s shooting Hondurans will be the norm. The cowboy culture will be replaced and the people who cut the hearts out of living victims are replacing them.
My people will be squeezed out of the cities we built and in our place the black squatters will be warring with the mestizos that are swamping them with sheer numbers and cruelty. That die is already cast and nothing will stop it, not Trump, not DeSantis, nobody. Your mission today is preparing to survive in a world where the meanest and dumbest people alive, who also have been taught to hate and resent us, will out-number us and have the backing of the very police and military we created and armed.
It’s not a bright future but it is the only future I see for us. The prepared might survive, the unprepared certainly will not.
