Profiles in OC Pioneers Who Were Klan Members: John F. Pieper, Tustin Feed Store Owner, Councilmember

Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for babyklan.jpg
It's always a blast to read the polite histories of Orange County and compare them to the true story. Take, for instance, their treatment of Tustin pioneer and former councilmember John F. Pieper, for whom the city's Pieper Lane (in the ritzy Tustin Ranch area) is named.

He ran Pieper's Feed Store from 1918 to the 1950s, a vital component of the small town in the days where its high school's Tillers nickname was more than a remembrance of the old days. The Pieper family remains in the area, with one of his daughters getting called upon during history celebrations to recall the good old days until her passing a couple of years back.

Part of her daddy's days? The Klan.

Pieper must've really believed in the White cause, as the membership roster of the Orange County KKK lists him as the only Tustin resident who ever joined the Invisible Empire. Unlike the cities of Brea or La Habra, joining the Klan wasn't a de facto requirement for doing business in the city. And as previously disclosed in this series, there were dozens of other fraternal organizations around at the time that Pieper could've joined, leading to the conclusion the man was a raving racist. No other way around it--IT'S IN THE MEMBERSHIP FORM, PEOPLE.

Wonder what sort of conversations Pieper had with a young Jimmy "Barefoot Africans" Utt back in the day...do the polite histories mention any of this? Nope--HILARIOUS!

Gustavo, your principal inclinations expresses capacities immersed in an acumen proportion closer to the north side of bottom dwellers who retain IQs of 19. Illiberality in this case is covetous. Your partisan stupidity masked as literacy exposes your psychobabble. The race-baiting and entitlement rhetoric is deplorable.

Your attempts at felicitous expressions convert to a phraseological morass by your second paragraph - when available.

The Gold Medal winning champion racists are the "Klan with the Tan."

Chicano chauvinists and Mexican agitators have made clear their intent to take back through deceit, weepy play-actors, demography and culture what their ancestors lost through war. And when confronted, present the well-worn race cards.

Loretta Brixley, excuse me, Loretta Sanchez, with racists remarks against Vietnamese on Univision (the network of the Tanned Klan), she also mocked the Tea Party with poor redneck southern accent and ridiculed Americans who believe Congress should follow the Constitution as opposed to those loyal to all things La Raza.

Former Housing and Urban Development Secretary, Henry Cisneros - (a Clinton appointee) - said before a Hispanic audience: "As goes the Latino population will go the state of California, and as goes the state of California will go the United States of America. My friends, the stakes are big. This is a fight worth making."

The former president of Mexico, Ernesto Zedillo, went before a group of illegals in Chicago and said, "I have proudly affirmed that the Mexican nation extends beyond the territory enclosed by its borders, and that Mexican migrants are a very important part of it."

"Go back to Boston! Go back to Plymouth Rock, Pilgrims! Get out! We are the future. You are old and tired. Go on. We have beaten you. Leave like beaten rats. You old white people. It is your duty to die. Through love of having children, we are going to take over." - Augustin Cebada, Brown Berets.

"They're afraid we're going to take over the governmental institutions and other institutions. They're right. We will take them over. We are here to stay." - Richard Alatorre, Los Angeles City Councilman.

"We have an aging white America. They are not making babies. They are dying. The explosion is in our population. I love it. They are shitting in their pants with fear. I love it." - Professor Jose Angel Gutierrez.

"Remember 187- proposition to deny taxpayer funds for services to non-citizens - was the last gasp of white America in California." - Art Torres, then-Chairman of the California Democratic Party.

"We are politicizing every single one of these new citizens that are becoming citizens of this country. I gotta tell you that a lot of people are saying, 'I'm going to go out there and vote because I want to pay them back.'" - Gloria Molina, Los Angeles County Supervisor.

"California is going to be a Hispanic state. Anyone who doesn't like it should leave." - Mario Obledo, California Coalition of Hispanic Organizations and California State Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare under Governor Jerry Brown, also awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Bill Clinton.

"We are practicing 'La Reconquista' in California." - Jose Pescador Osuna, Mexican Consul General .

"We need to avoid a white backlash by using codes understood by Latinos." - Professor Fernando Guerra, Loyola Marymount University.

"The American Southwest seems to be slowly returning to the jurisdiction of Mexico without firing a single shot." - Excelsior, the national newspaper of Mexico.

How about the Mexican government, Luis Gutierrez, Nativo Lopez, Chicano studies, National Council of La Raza, MEChA, LULAC, MALDEF, Los Amigos, the Mexica Movement, Gaddi H. Vasquez, the Brown Berets, the Latino Elected and Appointed Officials of Orange County, La Opinion, Zeke Hernandez, CHIRLA, Angelica Salas, Una Voce, the Hispanic Vote, and the multitudes of vile racist Reconquista types?

What can be said for an immoral liberal-led, subversive, cowardice America-hating culture that insists we permit this out-of-control lawlessness to be done to our nation, and that dances around the golden calf of perversity as a milestone of depraved retreat?

What's disturbing is witnessing the tsunami of illegal aliens who cross in the tens of thousands each day in an endless trek north as they arrogantly believe it is their right to do so. The trafficking in narcotics, terrorists, diseases, and people is a human rights outrage and a national disgrace. Even more so is the failure of the government of the US (handcuffed by La Raza in its ranks and anchor baby morons who consider it hate against another culture) to enforce our laws and protect our citizens and borders.

This is testimony to the moral rot in both La Raza infiltrated parties that our leaders and citizens are so terrified of being called "nativist," "xenophobic," or especially the dreded "racist" that they blind themselves to the rampant criminality in our cities, along our border, and entitlement psychobabble.

The La Raza Nazis are the eternal adolescent students of a vast lethargic dilapidated transnational campus for smash and grab Latino identity, feigned compassion, multiculturalism (theirs), multilingual (theirs), multiethnic (theirs), immorality (theirs), and the stupefying quest for colonization by idiots who puposely misinterpret dissent as hate, but hold dear the modish gloss on a cult of racial grandiose narcissism, La Raza, the typical East LA and Bay Area hallucinations.

Far from being moribund, the never-before-seen illegal alien invasion is a deliberate and proselytizing incline. It has poured into this country as the storm of the century, raising specious anti-American racists at every turn. They, as do the myriad of cowards of their inclination have a tendency to lash out at those who oppose tens of millions of illegal aliens, assuming that those of us who do not fall in line must be motivated by base prejudices of racism and self-indulgence. How dreadful are the curses which the tsunami of illegal aliens lays on its votaries.

If left undistubed, the Southwest will become a giant Kosova, a part of the nation separated from the rest of us by language, ethnicity, history, and culture.La Raza, the Mexican government, Aztlan dreamers, and anchor babies want it all to be reabsorbed in all but name by Mexico.

To understand the resentment of so many Mexicans against America, especially descendants of the Spanish who had ruled what is now Mexico, and had made claims to lands that are now the American Southwest, since Cortes came ashore in 1521, to independence in 1821, one must understand the history Mexicans are taught never to forget.

The Latino community will always be associated with fraud, and dishonesty. It is the nature of this demographic, and to the majority of Americans, it will never be anything but.

On one side are the immoral traitorous elite print media, the courts and a few politicians fronting for employer and Mexico's interests; on the other are the far more numerous, and raucous, talk-radio listeners, bloggers and cable news watchers, the ballot propositions, and populist state legislators who better reflect the angry pulse of the country.

They know that at any given moment, Americans could take to the streets and demand an end to this menace, or be forced to take matters into their own hands.

It is the sole reason why Mexico sends its people here - and why not encourage them with Reconqusita rhetoric and psychobabble that they could actually conquer America?

How long do you think Americans are going to stand by and watch it happen? For the moment, you should thank your lucky stars that Americans are indeed civil...

Hey Gustavo, did you see the story in the LA Times today about how female minor immigrants from Honduras and Guatemala are held captive in Chiapas bars and made to prostitute? Check it out. I'm sure it will give you reason to be even more proud of your heritage.

And CSU Fullerton students receive college credit in Chicano studies from Gustavo Arellano guest lectures? I majored in history and English at CSU Fullerton and took notes only from professors with Ph.D's from respected universities. Arellano's above article would earn him an F in any freshman history course.Arellano has extrapolated from scant evidence that long dead Pieper was a raving racist who rabidly sought membership in the KKK. How does Arellano arrive at his conclusion? By merely capitalizing "IT'S IN THE MEMBERSHIP FORM, PEOPLE".

When the Pieper's daughter participated in local history celebrations, did she ever share cute family pictures, personal mementos, special stories, or nooses that her father made?

Gustavo, since you have thoroughly researched the above article, why no response? Is your source on this list or not?

"Scant evidence?" Yeah, because joining the KKK marks you as a mixed-races sort of guy--HA!

There were no nooses. If Arellano had nooses, he'd have produced them by now. Even the picture that accompanies this 'series' has nothing to do with the Klan in OC.

Senator,

When you present Gustavo with facts or challenge him intelectually to the point where he can no longer bob and weave by calling you a troll or a racist, He'll simply ignore you. Welcome to the club. There was a story a couple weeks ago about the dude in Fullerton Albert Hetebrink, and a Daughter of the alleged Klanster's Mexican friend said the guy was one of the nicest people she ever met and was considered family to them. the oficial response from Gustavo... Typical, Nothing.

Oh and also not the only time someone has gone to try and research his alleged sources and came up empty handed.

Hey, Mitchell, pendejo, my question about warm fuzzy familiy pictures and noose props was all tongue in cheek, asswipe. And really that pic of the klan baby and his mother of the year has nothing with this story? Stop the presses! We have inaccuracies! Liberal media! Dont believe the hype!

Oh, please. When I produce a noose, you'll say it's a bow-tie. And that picture? I doubt you want me to produce the one of the burning cross--and then you'll say it's a bonfire in the Corona del Mar firepits--WEAK SAUCE...

Jeff: I actually heard from one of Hetebrink's receivers of his money--she was shocked and disgusted. Satisfied? Of course not!

I would be if you published the conversation.

like all bullies, Gustavo cowers when confronted with the big, strong facts. Who are Gustavo's friends and mentors? I'm sure they are like him.
