Struggle of Texas Independence just another Masonic plot?
September 7, 2011
A few days ago we received a note from Joe Hilliard of the Corpus Christi Caller-Times, alerting us to a story he had just written that “certainly has a San Antonio flavor.”
OK, I’m game, so hit the link to find news about a young Corpus filmmaker whose murder-mystery web series places the Battle of the Alamo in the middle of a Masonic plot to control, as follows with such things, the world, or at least this quadrant.
From Joe’s opening: “Did you know that most central Texian and Tejano figures in the Texas Revolution, including Stephen Austin, Lorenzo de Zavala, James Fannin and Juan Seguin, were Freemasons? This includes many heroes from the Alamo — David Crockett, William Travis and James Bowie.” Seem’s Santa Ana might have been a Mason, too, or at least known how to flash the Master Mason’s “secret distress sign” to bonafide Masonic brother Sam Houston after the battle of San Jacinto — the real reason why the Mexican general wasn’t lynched.
A new episode of Omar Becerra’s “A Perfect Union” appears every Tuesday on Koldcast.tv, a site that bills itself as “the other TV network.” In Becerra’s story, a freelance writer takes an assignment to chase a cold case murder, and discovers a back story that indicates that the fight for Texan independence wasn’t, after all, a drive to complete Anglo hegemony across the continent but just some infighting between rival Masonic lodges. Hey, any musing about that war that revamps the mythosphere is fine by us.
The show is a current favorite among the many made-for-web series available to stream on the website. To check out “A Perfect Union,” produced by Omar Becerra’s team Los Tall Boys Media, go to koldcast.tv.
"The birthplace of Texas liberty was actually in New Orleans and Louisiana masons served as the midwives. In a cottage at 829--833 Ursulines Street, in the fall of 1835, Stephen Fuller Austin, spokesman for the Texas insurrectionists, and thirty-five prominent members of a local masonic lodge, met and planned the liberation of the area of Texas from Mexico. At that meeting, the strategy to enlist sympathizers of the revolution was planned and a local committee was authorized to recruit volunteers and raise funds for the struggle...In addition to assisting in Texas independence, Louisiana masons were also helpful in promoting the establishment of the fraternity in what would become the State of Texas."
