Swine flu: La Voz de Aztlan blames it on the Jews


When we last checked in on La Voz de Aztlan, “the Jew-bashing, gay-trashing” online publication, in the words of Gustavo Arellano, was blaming the Jews for landing “La Causa” host Augustin Cebada in hot water.

Now, Arellano blogs, the La Voz de Aztlan publisher, Hector Carreon is blaming the Jews for something more serious: the spread of swine flu. Arellano writes:

He mentions the recent completion of a project that mapped out the Mexican genome and claims it was probably used to create the swine flu in a laboratory in order to target Mexicans. The principal evildoer? Mexico’s former Minister of Health, Julio Frenk, whom Carreon identifies as a Jew by using the crayons with which all La Voz de Aztlan articles are originally scrawled out to draw a crude yarmulke on a picture of Frenk. Carreon then ties Frenk to neocons at Harvard, whom he ties to Israel, and then provides a grabbag of links in which he previously claimed Jews were trying to destroy Mexico.

Carreon’s article, under the pseudonym Ernesto Cienfuegos, can be read here. It’s wacky, as are all the “Protocols of Zion” conspiracy theories on the Aztlan homepage.

Here is an excerpt from a 2001 article Arellano wrote for The Jewish Journal about the L.A.-based Website:
