The Five Stupidest Things Nativo Lopez Ever Said

Thumbnail image for NativoLopez91.jpg
All of Orange County engaged in a simultaneous shrug of indifference when longtime Aztlanista Nativo Lopez announced earlier this week he was retiring from public life and becoming a mere private citizen...where he would continue to agitate for the hot Mexican cause of the month. Huh? It was a fitting sorta-end for someone who once was a titan of Latino rights in Orange County, who helped to organize apartment renters around a tenant's strike that brought slumlords to their knees, who helped defeat Bob "B-1 Baboso" Dornan, who successfully advocated for immigrant parents as a trustee at the Santa Ana Unified School District...only to see his legacy largely erased by corruption, bad choices, and the stupidest political mouth this side of Dana Rohrabacher.

To wit:

5. Nativo Determines Who's a Latino and Who's Not

Rosemarie Avila was an evil woman, a longtime SAUSD trustee whose politics came from the Calvary Chapel school of crazy, namely because she went to Calvary (who can ever forget her asking Papa Chuck to send over 400 wackos to invade a board meeting just because SanTana Unified was going to offer domestic partner benefits?). But leave it to Nativo to make us have sympathy for the woman, if only for a bit, back in 2000 when Lopez--fresh from consolidating power on the school board--decided to ridicule Avila for being a fake Latina. Avila, born to German missionaries in Guatemala, was suddenly not Latina because...why again? Nativo never exactly said, but all roads lead to the idea that because Avila didn't have any indigenous blood (nothing but evil European sangre), she therefore wasn't real. "It's only of late that she's had an epiphany, a conversion if you will, of scouring the earth to find her Latino roots," Lopez told the Los Angeles Times back then, sarcasm dripping from his thick mustache like so much Brylcreem. "God bless her if she wants to be one of us."
 
4. Nativo Compares Himself to the Virgin of Guadalupe, Calls Himself a Prophet

One of my favorite stories to this day was a 2002 Nativo Lopez fundraiser from the days when he was facing an ultimately successful recall campaign. He held it on the feast day of the Virgin of Guadalupe, and Lopez and his supporters didn't try to hide the blatant attempt to connect him to the Empress of the Americas and all godly things.  "The Orange County Register has called me a prophet in his own land, and in many ways I feel that way," he proclaimed that day. Of course, God doesn't like people messing with his woman, so Nativo god the holy pimp hand and became the wanderer in the desert he's been ever since.

Sounds like bad blood. I'm no fan of MEChA and its retrogressive racialized philosophy which does more damage to Latinos than to Anglos, but most of the above complaints about Lopez don't bother me at all.

 I've watched people pick on you Gustavo over the years trying to paint you as some racist guy, but they never look at your work as a whole. What makes you fresh is you are willing to call out your own regardless of how many 'homies' will hate you for it. Keep stomping on those toes my friend! Geez, at least you guys didn't run a front page story on a horse accident in the back country. How low can they go...????

No, they ran a front page story about a couple of Elks.

A few articles critical of a clown doesn't are the equivalent of a few farts in a the hurricane of Klavito's anti-white, 'Latinos' uber alles agenda.

Still sore about that? You're starting to sound like those Catholics who whine about covering Brownie's pedo-protecting...unless you can tell us any errors in the story, stop your whining and go back to being a productive commenter instead of the next Mitchie.

Yes, belonging to MEChA is such a non-racist position. 

God save us from ignorant casper milquetoasts.

Seeing as how the movie is Scottish, wouldn't the English be the Mexicans and the English the 'gabachos'? 

"I don't hate the English, they're just wankers. We, on the other hand, were colonized by wankers".

Not only that, but I picked up the term from the muy-gabacho Trainspotting–REAL racist there...

Hey, when we go to Mexico, we're stopped as well, so stop your crying and grow a set.

“Having traveled into Mexico last year to various cities on the Baja Peninsula, a distance of more than 1,000 miles round-trip, we were stopped more than 20 times at various checkpoints. At most of those stops, we were told to exit the vehicle and we were subjected to rigorous inspections. Where does Mexican President Felipe Calderón get off with his hypocritical outrage at our Senate Bill 1070?” Gustavo is so quick to bash the United States yet look at what his beloved country does.

I sometimes call older white people "coffin dodgers," Mitch, does that mean I'm racist too?

Funny how the hispanics just celebrated what they refer to as a 'holiday" the stinko de mayo. History tells us it all started because Mexico would not pay their bills and their creditors wanted their money, sound familiar? Intelligent people realize it is just another reason for "do nothings' to drink, beat the oldest woman in the house and start touching the kids.In the morning grab a lawn mower and run down the street.  Funny you don't see any stories written how the Mexican government treats their immigrants and the hatred "do nothings" have for other South American countries.  Laughable.

He repeatedly refers to whites by the highly offensive term 'gabacho' (which essentially means cretin, idiot, and physically deformed). 

He spends countless hours and pixels conjuring up the memory of long forgotten 'klansmen' -- people who did exactly nothing violent or criminal -- yet ignores the way disproportionately murdering, meth dealing, relative's child raping culture that is 'Latino' OC. 

He belonged to an explicitly racialist group, MEChA, while at university. 

He calls older white people 'coffin dodgers'.

He is anti-gentrification, especially when it is effected by white business owners.

He supports continued illegal immigration from Mexico, and rewarding illegal immigrants via amnesty.

He's a racialist. He should just admit it.
