The Real Reason Why Some American Patriots Can’t Stand Cinco de Mayo (VIDEO)

Let’s pause for a second from all the Cinco de Mayo craziness and sadness going on right now in Morgan Hill, CA, we take a moment and share a history lesson for all those “patriots” out there who claim Cinco de Mayo and its origins have NOTHING to do with the United States. In fact, it has EVERYTHING to do with the United States. Watch:

There is also a very informative post here about Cinco de Mayo. A excerpt from that post:

The United States was helpless to fully support the Mexicans while the Civil War was raging. But after 1865, assistance was provided and the French were expelled in 1867. Maximillian I was executed along with the Mexican generals who had supported him.

The significance of the Battle of Puebla cannot be underestimated. Many historians believe that the French goal was broader than establishing influence in Mexico. Clearly, the French favored the Confederacy and by the Mexicans defeating the French at Puebla, direct aid to the Southern cause had to be postponed for a least a year – enough time for the Union army to strengthen and repel the rebels at Gettysburg. By 1864, when the French finally were able to get control of Mexico, it was almost too late to use Mexico as a base to supply the Confederate army. Thus, the Mexican victory at Puebla helped influence the outcome of the American Civil War. At the conclusion of the American Civil War, the United States then supported the Mexicans in their efforts to repel the French.

Imagine that? Mexico’s victory over France in the Battle of Puebla “helped influence the outcome of the American Civil War.” Mind blown, huh, patriots?

We are not denying and we are not afraid confess, this war is our war and that it is waged for the liberation of Jewry…Stronger than all fronts “ together is our front, that of Jewry. We are not only giving this war our financial support on which the entire war production is based. We are not only providing our full propaganda power which is the moral energy that keeps this war going. The guarantee of victory is predominantly based on weakening the enemy forces, on destroying them in their own country, within the resistance. And we are the Trojan Horses in the enemy’s fortress. Thousands of Jews living in Europe constitute the principal factor in the destruction of our enemy. There, our front is a fact and the most valuable aid for victory.
