I met last night with Naui Huitzilopochtli and he graciously allowed me to borrow his video clips of the footage he shot at the Santa Ana Independence Day event on July 3, that was taken over by the Minuteman.



Naui said that he saw Republican volunteers registering voters.  He approached them just as they were trying to connive a woman into registering as one of them.  When he saw this he quickly asked her if she really wanted to be a Republican.  Oh no, she replied, I am a Democrat.  Naui wasn’t sure how many voters were fraudulently registered that day.

In the video you will see that Anita Hynds, a Minuteman, immediately started screeching at Naui to go away, even though he wasn’t doing anything wrong.

You will also see Santa Ana Councilman David Benavides literally bowing to Lupe Moreno, as she gives him instructions.

And another Minuteman takes the time to explain to Naui that Moreno needed his help to explain to the kids what the 4th of July is all about as all they know about is Cinco de Mayo.

The video also includes a priceless moment with former SAUSD Trustee Rosie Avila, who now says she wants kids to learn four languages.  Sure Rosie.

This missing footage really fills in the blanks and it makes it clear that we should NEVER let Moreno run any other events in Santa Ana.

  1. In actuality it seems that the film maker, Naui Huitzilopochtli, is the one with the problem. His running commentary of “anchor babies” and “migrants” and “minuteman” continually repeated in this video demonstrates his prejudiced approach to this event and his desire to cause trouble.

    Seeing his filming method shows how contrived his method is and any published excerpt of this and any other videos released by Naui Huitzilopochtli should be questioned and discounted.

    1. Jerry,

      Of course Naui is opposed to Moreno’s hateful sentiments about “Anchor Babies.” He knows who she is and who her fellow Minutemen are. The real question is why did these haters come to Santa Ana? The answer of course is to make sure this never happens again. The City Council members have assured me that Moreno will NOT be allowed to host any more events in our city – at least any that are on public property.

      Naui is a hero for exposing what these racists are up to.
