I've visited the site a few times and the content is quite radical.

As for the ADL, I couldn't care less about their opinions. It, like the SPLC, has become nothing more than a political profiling group that seeks to smear those who the members disagree with.

If they'll buy the beer, I'll embrace their views! What, exactly, are we talking about here? Will I need to bring anything?

This was exactly my take. These are mostly kids that dont have anything better to do and want to feel they "belong to something". I dont think they understand in it's totalness, what aztlan entails. "If they'll buy the beer" statement reminds me of when I was in high school and mecha came to school to talk to me and try to recruit me for college with their..."you are one of us, you are a Chicana." I was puzzled by it but heck, they offered me some money to go to college, I wasn't about to turn it down. Once in college and I learned the theory behind aztlan and chicanismo, it was no longer appealing to me.

No serious person would even pay attention to them.

What you describe also happened a few times to my daughter in college. It happens now and then, in differing ways. My wife has been told how she "should"..(or should not) view things because of the way she "looks"...and then the same people will start in on ME.. She's been told she "doesn't look like" she fits her married surname (mine)....and that she shouldn't be letting a "guy like me" (her husband) translate any Spanish for her, because she "ought to know it on her own"....(and this comes from people who often THEMSELVES don't know it...much.)

Pretty much the same thing any OTHER knucklehead would say, regardless of race. MOST of these folks, as you say, are young and just not too sophisticated.

Thankfully, this doesn't happen TOO often in my life.....but I know te feeling.

Yes, sort of like poor white kids that get mixed up with hate groups like the Aryan Brotherhood..
