Judge Gonzalo Curiel, who is the judge surrounding the controversy of the Trump University case, belongs to a group with ties to the race-baiting, radical left organization called “National Council of La Raza.”
The group the judge belongs to is called the San Diego La Raza Lawyers Association. Recently, it has defended itself by saying it’s not affiliated with the radical National Council of La Raza — a group which stands for ignoring U.S. immigration laws. But does it matter? As we’ve pointed out in the past, the San Diego La Raza Lawyers Assoc. is focused solely on helping Latinos, both legal and illegal. And now we learning about the incredulous statements of the man listed first as a founder, Mario Obledo.
Obledo made racist comments about how white people should go back to Europe, and that the state of California belongs to Hispanic people only during an appearance on Ray Briem’s talk radio show in May or June of 1998, and again on Tom Leykis’ talk radio show. Here is a transcript between him and a radio caller:
Obledo: “We’re going to take over all the political institutions of California. In five years the Hispanics are going to be the majority population of this state.”
Caller: “You also made the statement that California is going to become a Hispanic state, and if anyone doesn’t like it, they should leave. Did you say that?”
Obledo: “I did. They ought to go back to Europe.”
Obledo was honored by President Bill Clinton in 1998. More so ironically, the liberal New York Times even reported of the statement in Obledo’s obituary:
“When someone put up a sign at the California border saying, “Illegal Immigration State,” he threatened to burn it down personally.
He ignited an explosive response in 1998 when he said in a radio interview that Hispanics were on the way to taking over all of California’s political institutions. He suggested that people who did not like it go back to Europe.”
