Official Statement-who we DO and DON’T work with

Contrary to his recent claims, the Carnalismo Brown Berets DO NOT work with Jon (AKA Juanito) Burns, Byron Calderon, nor Jeronimo Blanco.
The Carnalismo Brown Beret will NEVER work with ANYONE who prey on women, or attempt to subordinate Raza.
Jon Burns has been one of the most destructive, manipulative individuals who have embedded themselves in the Brown Beret community. His track record has already been verified and assessed, and addressed.
Anyone foolish enough to coalesce with this pig is not worthy as an advocate or activist.

The plauges of liars…”bandwagonisms”

First, this entry is meant to shed light onto the “achievement gap” that exists in the Chicano and Brown Beret community – to illuminate abuses, or “over-dependent” tendencies of Gente to fall back on third party, money mongering websites, and how many disruptive individuals make good efforts at their attempts of exploitive tactics, with regard to “social media.”

We have seen this dynamic in the older days of “myspace,” and truer than true, much of that activity DID lead to an upsurgence of “social media activity.

Fast forward to today, and many people can see how anyone with an email address can launch a Facebook “profile,” and subsequently launch a “Fan Page.”

So here’s where the bad actors attempt to try to “hold court,” or falsely appeal to our gent with a “support page.” This has gone on for so long, that I have to wonder what they will do when Facebook is no longer relevant. that day will come, and people will migrate elsewhere onto the internet.

I wish to also illuminate another fact; These frivolously launched Facebook fan pages can actually diminish the value and the honor of the Brown Berets as a whole legacy – whether being launched as a ham-fisted attempt at undermining others, you’re undermining the values and virtues which Brown Berets have classically held onto as the underpinning of the movement.

Allow me to dumb that down a little: Repeatedly launching disingenuous Facebook fan pages, in an attempt to garner “band wagon” supporters will diminish the movement as a whole. It will actually water down the whole thing, and undermine it’s credibility. Truth be told, there are many bad actors using Facebook currently as a platform, and an attempt to cause disruptive distrust amongst the Brown Beret Community.

I’ll go ahead and water that down some more: Irrelevant or disruptive people who think Facebook is a good place to declare your wannabe, dominant Brown Beret group is a bad idea, because it taints the Brown Beret Community, it de-values yourselves, and it mis-leads the public.

How does it mislead the public? These diatribes spewed by people hung up on “ownership” of the Brown Beret legacy. It confuses people, boffos!

To argue over “originality” is an argument internalized by agitators, or people with motives to self- aggrandize themselves. Como que? Cult Leader types… People who exhibit themselves as a self professed “cult-of-personality.”

What it means is this: Some individuals, of inferior morality basically sit posted up on the internet, trying to formulate strategies to undermine other Brown Beret groups. Much of this continuum appears to stem from middle-aged, Chicano men, with little to zero involvement en el Movimiento, even devoid of  the historicity of their own families.

Watering this down some more, ALL Brown Berets are susceptible to opportunists, who think they can step into the fold, and endow themselves as the determinate of what a Brown Beret is, was, or will be.

Any Brown Beret group that opens itself up to such susceptibilities might want to visit an “Internal Audit” of the personalities they identify with. Honestly, any Brown Beret group that barks about their authenticity ought to do their DUE DILIGENCE on who they vet to bring into their fold.

Wreckless recruitment measures, overly-ambitiousness, or enticement are ALL undertones of a gang, a cult, group-herd mentality.

Herd Mentality is a concept that doesn’t surface in the Carnalismo Brown Brown Berets: We don’t subordinate our own Raza. Carnalismo is an understanding. Some people get it, some people don’t. Carnalismo is a form of understanding, which very, very few people cannot wrap their minds around.

That being said, these other “internet jockey’s,” playing their little games can ride the Facebook wave all they want. When Facebook is no longer relevant, they will blindly (like sheep) scurry over to the next social media platform. And by such junctures, they might have found that ANY sense of their own privacy has been left open.

Discretion and accountability have their merits. NOT Levas who exhibit hidden agendas. We ARE the Carnalismo Brown Berets, and we live by our own merits. And we have been around for a very, very long time.

Causa Unidos Brown Berets continue to deal with BBNO unrest

The Causa Unidos Brown Berets have had to continually deal with the rapacious BBNO, and their actively offensive motives to undermine activists  en Tejas

The Causa Unidos Brown Berets have had to continually deal with the rapacious BBNO, and their actively offensive motives to undermine activists en Tejas

The BBNO, in its’ newest incarnation (a post Jon Burns era) have again resurfaced, with obvious ambitions toward rapacious grab ups for BOTH recruitment and expansion. Their eminent self implosion surfaced itself in the Autumn of 2011. They enjoyed a really big hype around 2010, when their “leader” appointed Jon Burns (A.K.A. Juanito, A.K.A El Gitano) to their second in Command. His title was then Chief of Staff, and there exist screen shots of BBNO proudly hailing this. But not only was Jon Burns ousted as a sexual miscreant, (who continually calls out hits on people) but he also tainted that 2010 incarnation of the “La Causa” patch.

For those who don’t know, YES, many Brown Berets wear different patches, and YES, there does unfortunately exist some dispute on the validity of such patches.

However, one thing that can NEVER be disputed is that the Carnalismo patch has never been rife with disruption nor dispute. Carnalismo Brown Berets are far more in keeping with some tenets of the old school, “veterano” Brown Berets, in that we DON’T operate from a place of imposing our will, and that we instead operate from a sense of understanding – in fact, that is what “Carnalismo” means in the first place.

Since we don’t subordinate our fellow Chicanos with egotistical tyranny, it ALSO means that we work closely and strongly and continually with our affiliate patches – those who have humbly organized alongside us.

Such is the case, with the Causa Unidos Brown Berets from El Paso, Texas. Their initiatives, and their works are so much in alignment with us, that in many respects, they are a part of our whole. When they deal with adversity, we sense and feel it.

Since, however (or leading up to) the burial of Reies Lopez Tijerina (a Texan who for Land Grant rights en Nuevo Mexico), we have again seen an uproarious resurgence stemmed from people who lust to own a cause to which they have exhibit unethical ambitions.  With regard to Tijerina, we  WATCHED as so many greedy agencies and institutions made the passing of this defiant Tejano’s death a part of their own causes – how they were exploitative in their nature to gather own ness over the death of this man who in his life stood for justice.

And though Sr. Tijerina had converted himself to another religion for long years passed, we also saw how many people tried to step into his legacy – and to grandstand their own motives for their own perceived ill gotten gains.

Honestly, it was a sick, disgusting affair, to see so many destitute (or despot) organizations squeeze themselves in, for a chance to speak blank words into a microphone, into a camera, or onto the news. It could even be argued that such organizations, such as the BBNO, La Fey, etc. actually garnered more money or more followers for their duplicitous outcries – their false gritos.

As a NATIVE Nuevo Mexicano, whose Abuela was from Del Rio, Texas,  I felt insult coursing in my veins. Much of the embodiment of Tijerina’s work existed in my back yard, a long time ago. In his latter years, Tijerina moved back to his native Tejas, and settled into a humble life – while he was still alive, few people knew him, nor cared much about where he ended up.

But the Causa Unidos Brown Berets DID! They could tell you what his favorite food was shortly before he passed away. They could tell you where he sought solace, in contrast to  a lot of grandiose organizations who so hungrily salivated over owning his legacy. Few people would know his humble road as he sadly departed us all. But the Causa Unidos Brown Berets were there when few paid attention to him.

This “ambulance chasing” attorney out of El Paso has been hastily “promoted,” and emboldened by Jeronimo Blanco, to lead and direct the new incarnate of the BBNO. The hasty “promotions” are reminiscent of the 2010 BBNO, when Burns had been endowed as second in command. Burns only lasted a little over a year.  What credibility lies with a man who barely became a Brown Beret when he was middle-aged, and why he is given so much credence?

The current incarnate of the BBNO have distinctly sought to be rapacious, and to have ownership of the Brown Beret persona. Their enthusiasm shows, since they copyrighted the “La Causa” patch. And for all the flagrantly reckless statements they make on their website, it is VERY ironic that the BBNO used the same gabacho laws they claim to be against in order to copyright the “La Causa” patch – a patch and symbol that has been in use before any of their existent leadership became Brown Berets. None of the “men” who poise themselves as leaders are even originators of the “La Causa” patch. Still, they continually “troll” on facebook, to deceive the public. They flagrantly disrespect other Brown Berets, of other patches, and they try to harass other Brown Berets with “legaleaze,” and false cease and desist threats.

This is the precipice of the problem, as it exists for Chicano activists today; the ego-stroking characters, conjuring fake adversaries, spreading libel, slander, and harassment, and implementing deception to cause unrest and disruption.

To those poor saps who joined the BBNO, drank the koolaide, bought those silly khakis, the canteen belt y todo; Carnalismo feels sorry for you. We have no ambitions to recruit “puppies”, who subject themselves to be lead on a leash. We are comprised ONLY of leaders, NOT followers. And we only encourage independent thought. We challenge one another, and we UNDERSTAND one another. This is why we hold strong – BOTH with our chapters, and our affiliates.

We keep our Movida clean from trolls, never-do-wells, sex offenders, and ego-stroking sycophants. That is what we have always done, and that is what we continually do. And most importantly, we do it from a place of CARNALISMO; compassion, understanding, carino, and shared conciseness – actions which cannot be written in words…

 

How the BBNO demonstrates thier misconduct

This is a video on how the current incarnate of the BBNO conducted themselves at the Cesar Chavez festivities in El Paso, Texas – in 2015. Unfortunately, the video doesn’t show some of the subsequent, unabashed things they published on facebook, misportraying what happened. But the issue is continual, as such elements operating under a Brown Beret persona continue to harass, threaten and bully the very same people they claim to “defend” from an ethnic standpoint. Either way, their conduct was rude, arrogant, and inflammatory – and they rhetoric and continual slander and libel toward other individuals stands to misportray ALL Brown Berets, and activists who have sought to solidify equal rights for the sake of the greater good. Their divisive demeanor is demonstrably shown here.

Official Statement, re: Jon (Juanito) Burns

As per Victor San Miguel, head of Carnalismo Brown Berets, he says, ” I have NO input to what Burns does…Burns does NOT stand with Carnalismo…”

It should also put put forth that Jon (Juanito) Burns is NOT welcome in El Paso, TX due to his negative interactions and harassment of the Tijerina family.

Burns 2012-04-13

This statement comes as Jon (Juanito) Burns has attempted to re emerge as a Brown Beret, and once again deceive other Chicanos and other organizations over his validity as an activist. There exists to this day NO single individual who has caused more disruption in divisiveness than Jon Burns. (his newest self proclaimed nickname is “El Gitano.”)

Jon Burns has been evidently proven to instigate violence, sexual harassment, bullying, manipulations, slander, libel, and LIES, and this has been a continual issue, largely because those who align with him, ally with him, etc. From here on in, those who harbor Jon Burns will have their names associated with him, and with “Rape Culture,” as well as “Bullying,” both of which are large topics in todays political climate.

Below is a message Jon Burns recently sent a member of Carnalismo via facebook, in which he uses obscene sexual language to insult two members of Carnalismo, and another member of the National Brown Berets (NBB)

Burns-IMs-Chuco-012015Those who wish to dismiss or ignore this immature behavior are themselves just as guilty as Burns himself.

Continually have to deal with bad people…

En El Movimiento, we are riddled and rife with so many ppl hung up on their own self aggrandizement – we continually have to address this susceptibility, and permeability in order to keep things honest. There is, however a certain phenomena where distinct bad actors continually try to amass own-ness or ownership of the Brown Beret persona. There are individuals who have distinctly sought to copywrite or trademark what we do. They thirst to own it. They are so hungry to own it, they are willing to pay the fees, and take the gabacho route to have “own-ness” over a cause, in an effort to own the Brown Beret persona. LETS BE CLEAR – ANYONE MAKING CLAIMS TO THIS, VIA THE GABACHO GOVERNMENT ARE STILL THEMSELVES FEEDING THE SAME MACHINATIONS THE BROWN BERETS HAVE HISTORICALLY SOUGHT TO CHALLENGE. In other words, your legitimacy continually envelopes toward your ILL-ligitimacy, and I for one am sorry that you squandered such expense to file through the gabacho system, compromise your physical addresses in doing so, and continuing to harass other Brown Berets. We will NOT allow “bad actors” en el movimiento – it simply won’t occur.

Ferguson Verdict gives me the needle farts

After only perusing a few posts, I see many saying they’re NOT surprised of the Grand Jury Verdict today – over officer shit sh*t stick being acquitted of gunning down Michael Brown. It’s not enough to say that I wasn’t surprised. I am very much a “worst-case-scenario” kind of guy. Many might argue that I’m a pessimist – still many others would argue that I’m an analytical thinker. Day-to-day situations frustrate me, while I can be cool as a cucumber during crisis type situations.

But I am actually, honestly surprised. Anyone who knows anything about our justice system knows that it is not – nor has it ever been blind in any instance where it inconvenienced the prevailing “old world” powers.

Justice, as put forth by the philosophical Romans was beset on seeking “moral” argument of right and wrong – but since it’s inception, it was still engineered for nuances; “this is allowed here, but not there. We will be judged by peers, but not those peers – not the obvious ones, or the ones most afflicted or affected by the factors of the case.

Yes, Law gives me a huge case of the needlefarts. I mean “needlefart” metaphorically, but it sort of means, something meant to relieve ones self which ends up causing a great deal of pain. Such is the case with the Ferguson ordeal. Fact of the matter is this: Too many cops are shooting too many civillians indiscriminately and getting off scott-free for it.

The police are enjoying a vindictive privilege we civilians are NEVER afforded – and worse yet, we PAY them! Our taxes pay them.

Even if we could find a way that our taxes no longer fund them, the GOP would hire private police. So what is there to do?

 

Cleansing “El Movimiento”

Recently, many people may have noticed that Carnalismo Brown Berets and others have been actively engaged in “truth campaigns,” or efforts at revealing and exposing unjust actions of individuals claiming a Brown Beret persona, while not engaged in any ethical practices as Brown Berets. As could be expected, these measures can be met with hostility, retaliation, threats, and even passive admonishment from fellow soldados y soldadas who might want to keep what they see as the peace. There are some who have raised concerns about public perception of Brown Berets, and what may be perceived to outsiders as in fighting.

This entry is meant to squash that. First of all these efforts toward truth are quite the opposite. Let’s not downplay the public. They’re not that stupid. While they may not distinguish from patches, and may only “see the beret,” they can certainly see there is a degree of unrest going on. One thing the public should see is that this effort is righteous. This is Brown Berets basically auditing internally, and ensuring the sanctity of the Brown Beret role en El Movimiento. This is precisely about accountability, responsibility, and protecting the public from corrupt, morally bankrupt, individuals trying to amass perceived power under themselves. The truth campaigns have been meant to illuminate how some bad actors have sought to take hold of the Brown Beret persona and use it for self aggrandizement – or even demand that others swear allegiance to them, as if they hold sole claim to El Movimiento.

We have illuminated myriad of other instances where such individuals have tried to create permutations of a legitimate Brown Beret group, thereby miscridentialing themselves to others, and misleading them. Some people learn over time, but there is little time to waste these days, as we see hostility toward Chicanos surfacing more and more in Aztlan. This is why we’ve sought to put the truth out on matters. So those with two brain cells to rub together can distinguish truth from lies, ethical people and bad actors.

When we’re talking about truth, we’re not referring to slander or false claims not backed by any evidence whatsoever. That’s what the adversarial men we are referring to are steeping to. In fact, one of our members has been basically called a crack smoking, Nazi-cop, who lets women beat up on him who he later calls the cops on. Ridiculous, isn’t it? Because of the degree of slander, libel and threats, we must continue on in this path to truth, for in this path, we have encountered many, many others who share the exact same sentiments, and who also provide truth and testimony of their own. We’re at the point in fact where this has grown beyond the scope we first envisioned, and that others have taken to task exposing truth as well. We have no control of what might be put out there in the future. What we can assure others in the truths we put out is that they are REAL, documented evidence; emails, messages, audio, video, etc. we can also assure everyone that these pieces of evidence are being compiled and archived, put into dossiers (jackets) involving every bad actor, and every individual who swears their allegiance to, aligns themselves with, or acts on behalf of these bad actors.

We are at the helm of a drive to cleanse El Movimiento, to reinstall ethics into El Movimiento, and to ensure that individuals are better vetted before EVER being brought into the fold as Brown Berets. We only need “Brown Beret calibre” individuals, not ne’er do wells, who have staked out their egos en El Movimiento.

Even more slander/libel, by way of Jon “El Gitano” Burns

Even more slander and libel have been spread about Ricky Gonzales, Carnalismo Prime Minister of Nuevo Mexico. They have once again resurrected the LIE that Ricky Gonzales works with law enforcement. And Jon “El Gitano” Burns goes so far as to say that Ricky Gonzales smokes crack, drinks like a fish, and gets beat up by women and calls the cops on them. None of this is true, but what is true is that the last time Ricky called Burns and his cohorts on the phone confronting their lies, minutes later he recieved a phone call from New Mexico State Police Officer Olguin! That’s right, Burns and his lapdog called the cops on Gonzales. Audio of this may be posted soon.

 

See their repugnant statements below:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ricky Gonzales is being libelously slanderd, yet Jon “El Gitano” Burns himself is the one with a PROVEN Law Enforcement background….talk about projection:

More Slander, by way of Jon “Juanito” Burns

Jon “Juanito” Burns is continually dispersing his same lies and smear campaigns. For anyone trying to refute or research just the tip of the iceberg on this guy, check out www.brownberetsnewmexico.com. Carnalismo is also putting it out there that Jon “Juanito” Burns, and “Los Brown Berets La Hermandad,” (a group open only to men) ARE NOT Brown Berets! They are a regurgitation invented by Jon “Juanito” Burns after he was kicked out of the BBNO for sexual harassment findings. Those Burns has lied to, and who align themselves with “La Hermandad (a group with NO historical ties to El Movimiento whatsoever) are ALSO not observed as Brown Berets by the Carnalismo, as well as other groups. Examining their bizarre rantings in their statements, one cannot help but realize they are trying to turn the Brown Berets into some sort of occult religion, being run like a prison gang. Just look at the facebook post below. They lament on how Ricky Gonzales is an “internet warrior,” and on how they are “..real soldados.” Which is very funny, since they chose FACEBOOK of all places to prove that they aren’t “internet warriors!” Bua ha ha ha!

All unmistakable humor aside, “Los Brown Berets de La Hermandad..” are NOT Brown Berets, no matter how much they lament that they are. They something Jon “Juanito” Burns made up after being kicked out of a second Nationally recognized Brown Beret organization. Burns has disrupted so many Brown Beret organizations in less than five years  that he has no credibility – except among the men who tried to bury his sexual harassment scandals. (Sounds a lot like the Sandusky Incidents).
