If the U.S. Southwest is "Aztlan", then where the hell are the Aztec pyramid ruins? Have the Aztlanist figured that one out yet?

Los Angeles of the past? Yeah, right. Perhaps it's our future, actually...

aztlan is used, to reference the aztecs. The world aztlan is used to mean the land of our people. You are taking it too literal.

Atzlan is the mythical name that those who consider themselves to be the descendents of the Aztecs have given to the southwestern lands of the United States which they hope to reconquer either by sheer numbers or force someday.

However what they don't seem to want to acknowledge is that the actual Aztecs never really migrated any further north than modern day Mexico City, and as of now, despite serious efforts of many scholars and activists, there is no evidence of the actual existence of Aztlán, never mind any proof of its specific location. Claims, unsupported by evidence, that Aztlán was situated in (what is currently known as) Arizona, Colorado or Utah seem to contradict a well-established consensus among scholars that these areas were inhabited by North American Indians who, as opposed to Aztecs, left enough artifacts in these areas to document their existence there. Also, North American Indians have specific names for the geographical areas and landmarks; those areas also figure into the tribal stories and history.

Actually, our border was cleaner than any Mexican border. It wasn't until the illegals arrived that disease and garbage started to take over.
