Radio Host Rants Against GOP
Hispanic Outreach: They’re
Mexican ‘Socialists’ Who
Come To ‘Plunder’ U.S.

Mediaite, by Andrew Kirell

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/14/2012 11:28:20 AM

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???

Wan´t it Reagan that granted amnesty for 3 million mexicans in the 80´s and the GOP lost some of the hispanic vote in the next election. When will the GOP understand this?!?

Well, why not?

White Europe came to America for the same reason -- to plunder. And the natives who were already here and thriving ended up taking it in the shorts, big time.

Sorry. Sauce for the goose and all that. Plundering seems to be one of Homo sapiens favorite pastimes, since the grass always appears greener somewhere else.

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.

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!

Kafir

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.

Confusing Obamacare regs define

The administration is confusing and frustrating businesses and lawmakers with new Obamacare regulations that define full-time as working just 30 hours, but sometimes rely on the traditional 40-hour week and even a new and unheard of standard of 35 hours in guidance to employers facing a maze of requirements. Congressional officials and business leaders, for example, cited to Secrets IRS guidance issued in February. That 227-page package, they said, appears to set two standards: 30 hours for hourly workers, and 40 hours for salaried workers even though the law requires employers to offer healthcare to those who work 30 hours or

New U.S. intelligence assessments say there are more indications than ever that Russia could invade eastern Ukraine, as congressional lawmakers reacted with alarm to Vladimir Putin´s rapidly expanding military buildup along the border. "The thinking in the U.S. government is that the likelihood of a major Russian incursion into Ukraine has increased," a senior U.S. official told Fox News. ADVERTISEMENT The new thinking is based mostly off analysis of public information, such as heightened rhetoric from Putin and his claims that Russian-speaking people in Ukraine face "brutality." He is building a public case for more military action, according to senior U.S. officials. Also significant

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) said the fault of struggling to sign up on the Obamacare exchanges didn’t lie with the faulty website, but with the people who weren’t “educated on how to use the Internet.” Explaining the reasoning behind the latest Obamacare delay, Reid said too many people just didn’t know to use their computer properly and needed more time. Apparently, it had nothing to do with the well-documented failings of the website that have embarrassed the White House for months. “We have hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up who didn’t get through,” he said.

And if the oral arguments before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C.
