During his national radio show on Friday, American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer, spokesman made the case against Republican Party outreach to Hispanic-Americans, dismissing them as “socialists by nature” who “come from Mexico” to “plunder” the United States. According to Fischer, reaching out to Hispanics is a lost cause because the demographic supports Democrats not because of the party’s actual policies but because Hispanics want “goodies.” “Hispanics don’t vote Democrat because of immigration,” he explained. “That’s not the main reason why they vote for Democrats. It doesn’t have anything to do with lax
Comments: They can insinuate that he is a lunatic, but what he says is the absolute truth. Do the Republicans really think granting amnesty will make them vote Republican?? They are going for all the freebies they get in this country. Why wouldn´t they???
I object! This type of wild talk from a "conservative" is exactly what tars all of us and makes perfectly legal, good citizen Hispanics distrust and fear us.
It´s not about "goodies". We have to stop addressing Hispanics as if they are all illegal law-breakers.
To those who believe immigration reform means rounding up and sending to Mexico anyone of Hispanic heritage, regardless of who they are and whether their own generations were born here, I say we need their legal votes and we must show respect for them.
First of all, a lot of "good, legal Hispanics" agree with the Republican position on immigration. Secondly, are you going to have an amnesty every 5 or 10 years? And thirdly, what is telling the truth considered a rant?
Here in California, a lot of us view the talk of "Conservative Hispanics" just waiting to be wooed into the Republican Party "by the right message" with barely-controllable hilarity. Some, sure, just as we see the occasional black conservative arise from time to time. But most? No chance.
People hear this with their mouth agape because the truth is never said out loud. It needs to be said and open for debate. But the left and the pandering Republicans will shhhhhhhhh! For fear they will lose the remaining Hispanic voters. They´re willing to sell their souls to a lie if it gets votes.
Sorry, the truth hurts. Why the Republicans do not receive more votes than they do is provable if it can be studied, researched, polled and debated. But no one wants to hear the truth. BLACK AND HISPANIC VOTERS BLOCK VOTE DUE TO "TRIBAL" TYPE NATURES. Add to that the drumbeat of propaganda by the media and the desire for stuff and there you have it. it is what it is. Believe it.
This is not about ethnicity or culture, but about poverty. Everyone, regardless of color or origin, who is poor statistically votes for the big government safety net throughout the world. Who are the Mexicans that are coming here? Is it the rich oil men or the political/ruling class? Not hardly. The only ones who come here are the poverty class. They realize they won´t get much from their government, so they come here to get it from ours! There isn´t one single Pubbie reaching-out effort that will ever succeed. Unless, of course, we promise more goodies than the Dims. Fugetaboutit.
Rush received a call from a true conservative Hispanic originally from Mexico. He explained it perfectly. Most of the legal and illegal aliens come from a country where government controls the wealth. They come to this country with the same expectations and beliefs and vote accordingly - with the "big government" party, the RAT party. The state-run media enforces that belief. Giving the illegals amnesty will change nothing.
#6 says we need to reach out. That´s BS. Illegal aliens are nothing more than border jumpers, here for the goodies. They break the law when they sneak into the USA. Are you, number 6, in favor of appeasing blatant law breakers that illegally sneak across the border? Did you vote for Obama?
I´m not sure what´s wrong with treating Hispanics with respect and trying to get the legal residents to vote for Republicans. How does that make #6 an Obama supporter? I didn´t see anything about amnesty in his comment, or anything about the illegals at all.
Morons such as this fellow are killing any chance that conservatives can win in future. He doesn´t know all immigrants, but he seems perfectly willing to categorize them all. He´s a bigot, not a conservative.
I think that part of the outreach to Hispanic Americans should go something like this:
You or your ancestors left Mexico or some other Latin country because things were bad there. Why do you want to bring those bad things here? And if you do bring those bad thing here, isn´t that going to make life bad for you, too.
Why my grandfather came to the United States, he wanted ot be an American and resisted attempts by people to get him involved in Scottish organizations. He said that if he loved Scotland so much, he would have stayed there.
If you want to be an Amerian, great! Then be an American. If you love the crummy place you left so much, then stay there, but don´t try to bring it here.
#5: “White Europe came to America for the same reason -- to plunder.”
That’s BS. Some did. Most didn’t. Most came to escape the injustices of White-Old-Europe.
Don’t forget it was White-Old-Europe that bought the slaves from the Black-African-Slavers, who had been slaving for thousands of years and are still slaving to this very day, and then brought them first to the Caribbean.
Back to the discussion at hand!
I agree with most posters and the article.
As long as the GOP is conservative based, there is no way to win the Black or Hispanic vote. Please note that Cubans do not fit the ‘Hispanic’ mold.
Cubans understand the dangers of a Carter, Clinton or an Obama after living under Castro!
The Blacks, Hispanics and the so called Youth-Vote will continue voting for the lefties till a severe financial collapse puts there sorry butts between a hard place and a rock. That won’t happen in two years and probably not enough in four years.
I very strongly ask all American-Consumers to not spend one dollar on non-essential items/goods/services.
I very strongly ask all American-Businesses to not hire new employees or expand or buy new equipment and to also cut back on employee hours to avoid Obamacare and give the finger to that Fascist POS.
I very strongly ask the GOP House to acquiesce to Obama’s tax and spend demands and let the cards fall where they may even if Conservatives abandon them and we lose the house in 2014.
I believe that the only way to save America, after this disastrous loss, is for us to go through severe Financial/Social unrests to the point of making Grease look like a rainy day at the park!
Then maybe the rest of America will smarten up and not vote lefty!
I agree with this guy in a lot of respects, but Republicans have to differentiate between the term "Hispanics" and the illegal alien population. The term Hispanic covers a lot of people who have never been illegal aliens from anyplace. Why should US citizen Hispanic people get lumped in with illegal aliens as they are two separate groups of people. Many Hispanics living in the USA today don´t speak Spanish and don´t associate with illegal aliens.
The Republicans have been called the stupid party for a longtime now. The liberal Democrats and the socialist oriented ethnic and immigration rights activists are trying to bamboozle the stupid party to support a massive liberal Democrat inspired amnesty for 12-20 million illegal aliens with a path to citizenship which is liberal Democrat code for eventually granting the legalized aliens US voting rights.
If the stupid party goes along with that, they will be handing the liberal Democrats many millions of new foreign born socialist oriented voters in the years ahead, will never be able to get enough votes to win national elections, and will have committed long-term political suicide. The highly partisan liberal Democrats would not be proposing such a big amnesty if they thought that a more then a small percentage of legalized aliens would ever have an epifinany and vote for conservative Republicans. That is just not going to happen.
Everybody is taking selfies these days, it seems. Even President Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron got into the self-portrait act Tuesday at Nelson Mandela´s memorial service. We´re not sure whose smart phone was used, though Obama has said he doesn´t have an iPhone because of security concerns. We´re also not positive who the other person in the snap is -- the AFP photo caption didn´t identify her -- but it looks an awful lot like Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt. First lady Michelle Obama, meanwhile, appears to be paying attention to the program. "Selfie," which is the Oxford Dictionaries word of the year
In the past there have been all sorts of presidential fibbing. Some chief executives make promises that they know they probably cannot or will not keep. Before his reelection for his third term in the midst of a world war, Franklin Roosevelt swore that he would never send American boys to fight in a foreign war. In just a little over a year, he did just that. Lyndon Johnson likewise before the 1964 election said he would not send troops to Vietnam. But once reelected, he sent nearly 200,000 troops to fight the North Vietnamese; by the time he left
Colorado has been taken over by Democrats over the past few election cycles. But left-leaning PPP’s latest poll suggests that the Democrats are losing their grip on the state. The recalls of two Democratic State Senators in September weren’t an anomaly when it comes to how Colorado voters are feeling about the state legislature. Republicans lead the statewide generic legislative ballot by a 47/42 margin, including a 41/30 advantage with independents. Those numbers are perhaps also indicative of how much trouble Democrats would be in at the top of the ticket next year if the GOP candidate fields were a little
President Barack Obama declined even to attend the funeral of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. Instead of attending, he dispatched a pair of former secretaries of state to attend. Obama attended the funeral of Nelson Mandela in South Africa and addressed the service. He also mixed and mingled, and CNN had its cameras trained on his every move, capturing this revealing moment. “Castro! He’s shaking hands with Raul Castro!” Amanpour shouts as Obama seeks Castro out, bows to the Cuban dictator and takes his hand. After Amanpour gushed over Obama’s shaking hands with the head of a brutal communist regime
The Democratic pollster Democracy Corps, commissioning research from Greenberg Quinlan Rosner, recently dug into that foreign species commonly referred to as “the conservative voter.” In a dispatch that reads like the curious field notes Charles Darwin scribbled while observing the natural wonders of the Galapagos, the Democratic pollsters have found that the family Republican is made up of a variety of genera, including moderates, tea partiers and socially conservative evangelicals. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the pollsters discovered that these factions are distinct and not especially friendly towards one another; but the report is not without surprising findings. The top of that list is the
WASHINGTON — C. Steven Tucker,the man who helped cancer patientBill Elliott regain his health insurance policy, now believes that he is purposefully being intimidated by the IRS. The Washington Times reported on Thursday that Tucker and Elliott received notices from the IRS on the same day, but for different matters. Since receiving his first notice, Tucker has experienced a series of events that have left him feeling targeted, but very determined. In a follow-up interview with Tucker on Dec. 8, more was learned about the specifics surrounding the IRS actions being taken against him. The Washington Times has also confirmed
OCALA, Fla. — In life, communication is everything. While we can say a great deal without ever speaking one word, the importance of language stands without parallel. In today’s America, many no longer see the value in having a national language. For them, it is incomprehensible as to why English should be emphasized. The reason for said mindset is multiculturalism. It is spreading across the Western world like wildfire. This has led not only to cultural barriers, but severe religious and ethnic conflicts. “Adopting English as our official language would be a healthy step toward slowing and reversing multiculturalism,” Robert Vandervoort, the executive
A veteran Washington adviser who has worked for four Presidents on both sides of the political aisle said that the stunning Government Accountability Report report that found President Barack Obama has not had a one-on-one meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius since the passage of Obamacare over three years ago is an indictment of the entire White House operation and shows that the Obama administration has bordered on "malfeasance." "I have no doubt the White House is right, that Secretary Sebelius was in several group meetings with the president about health care," Gergen caveated, "but the whole
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry opened her program over the weekend with a commentary about the Affordable Care Act’s colloquial moniker: “Obamacare.” She said that the word was originally created as a “derogatory term,” designed by white men as a way to delegitimize President Barack Obama and his achievement. However, she said that the term will soon be synonymous with all of Obama’s accomplishments and she urged her audience to use the term with pride. “I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years, and like it or not, it’s indelibly
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made a last minute decision not to participate in a memorial service for the late South African President Nelson Mandela, despite having notified the South African government that he would attend the event. The decision was made in light of the high transportation costs resulting from the short notice of the trip and the security required for the prime minister in Johannesburg. The Prime Minister’s Office found that the trip would have cost roughly 7 million shekels ($2.4 million) – 2.8 million shekels for chartering a private El Al plane and a further 3.2 million shekels for
President Obama, former president George W. Bush and their wives departed Washington Monday morning on Air Force One on their way to a memorial service in South Africa for Nelson Mandela. The president and first lady Michelle Obama are being accompanied by Mr. Bush, former first lady Laura Bush and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on the flight to Johannesburg. A four-hour memorial service will be held on Tuesday for South Africa’s first black president. Mr. Mandela, the anti-apartheid revolutionary, died on Thursday at age 95. Former President Bill Clinton and daughter Chelsea are traveling separately to South Africa. Former President
President Obama will make remarks on Nelson Mandela´s legacy during a memorial service Tuesday for the late South African freedom fighter, officials said Monday. "We do expect President Obama to speak as part of the program," said Ben Rhodes, deputy national security adviser for strategic communications. The president and first lady Michelle Obama departed Monday for Johannesburg, where a Mandela memorial service will be held in a soccer stadium. Obama, who will also spend time with the Mandela family, is not scheduled to hold any bilateral meetings with foreign leaders while in South Africa, Rhodes said. Rhodes also said the
