Adam Carolla blames Mexican
immigrants and their imported
´culture´ for California´s struggles

Daily Caller, by Jeff Poor

Original Article

Posted By:Donttaxmebro, 11/30/2012 5:38:17 PM

On his Wednesday podcast, comedian Adam Carolla blamed Mexican immigrants for overwhelming and destroying California’s troubled public-education system. “Schools are f***ing ruined, and schools are ruined — not because they’re out of money, but because we’re flooded with Mexicans, and they’re not into studying,” Carolla said. “They don’t come from that culture, and we’re not asking them to change. That’s the thing. We have a culture that is not focused on the schoolwork. It’s a different culture. It’s, by the way, why their culture is failing, and their country, ironically — it’s why they’re here.

Comments:
This is a nice rant. Probably won´t win Mr. Carolla many friends in the neighborhood he resides in.

One thing I´ve noticed for years when I talk with people from Mexico is that they just shrug and accept corruption from their federal and local governments. It´s almost as if they expect all politicians to be corrupt. This might explain why they vote for Democrats and aren´t too bothered by things like bankruptcy, dishonesty and negligence that results in fatalities in our current administration.

As long as the government hands out bennies, a Dictator for Life isn´t worth the concern.

He´s only partly correct. The reason it´s in such bad shape is because it´s run by democrats and they have no clue how to balance a checkbook.

Just read an article below that claimed that Mexico was really doing well financially. So what is with their people straggling over here for freebies? I am sick and tired of them begging on street corners or outside of a mall. Go home and make your country live up to that article.
We also have canadians sneaking in here for medical treatment - not saying that they do not pay for it, but government running anything turns into something rotten.

Corolla will be excoriated for his comments, but had they been spoken by Bill Maher, nobody would give them a second thought.

As Corolla stated, `Are there ****** up things about our culture? Yes.`, and one of them is liberalism, which has wrought our current situation.

Number Two, excellent points.

The low morals and low standards are a win-win for the corrupt DimWits
who want them here.

Everybody´s in on the cheating and corruption and can benefit from it.
Or so they think.

Eventually there will be nothing left to plunder.
When America is no longer recognizable, the Mexicans will say (as they already do) -
"Hey man, give us back the territories you took from Mexico. We´ve already ruined it anyways, man... It´s, like... ours!"

Can´t endorse this. The US people have made their own problems. And California - was an enthusiastic leader.

What Carolla complains of was wholly predictable. We could have chosen otherwise.

Carolla is right. Mexico is not, and never has been, a beacon of hope. No one wants to emigrate to Mexico, or any other third world country. And yes, our culture is better, exactly for the reasons he stated.

Liberals let them "squat" here to buy their votes. What great accomplishments have they ever added to our great nation? Fruit-picking? Yardwork? Making beds? Washing dishes? Killing each other in our urban barrios? Have you ever seen their placement scores in community colleges? I have. Its abysmal!

The maipulative, unethical and questionably corrupt Congress, -delegated by the Constitution to fund their legislation, ...plus the failure to simply enforce the law by the Presidential Administrations for over 2 decades, are both equally responsible for allowing the ILLEGAL immigration debacle.

Also, they are responsible for the general disrespect for law enforcement as a direct result of their neglect regarding ILLEGAL aliens throughout the past 2 decades. ...Instead of the law being efficiently & equally enforced, it has become a political football used by beltway pols for subjective favoritism for their own re-election votes. mmm mmm mmm

Not really. It´s the unions with their strangle hold on the government that are the biggest problem. They have manipulated every situation, so anything the Mexicans have done is downstream of that.

It may be unpopular, but Mexicans, for the most part, come here to work and they do. Unfortunately, the corrupt Cali government (corrupted by union money) puts out the welcome mat to Mexican gangs and grifters too. Plenty of every race in those two categories, but at least legal citizens are somewhat known.

#5 - Yes, and one reason Mexico is doing well is because millions of legal and illegal Mexicans in the US transfer the billions in cash they have earned here legally and illegally back to Mexico. Another reason the Mexican gov´t wants open borders with us on our border - but not for itself on its own southern border.

In an interview posted on the YouTube page owned by the filmmakers of last September’s documentary “The Muslims Are Coming” on Monday, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow targeted conservative Ann Coulter and radio host and so-called evangelist Bryan Fischer. Maddow was critical of Fischer and likened him to Coulter, author of "Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican," who Maddow insisted wasn’t to be taken seriously as a political player or a pundit, but instead just a comedian. “[A]nn Coulter was revealed not as a political player or even as a pundit, but essentially as a comedian,” Maddow explained.

On her Thursday broadcast, “The Kelly File” host Megyn Kelly brought on Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer to sound off on the latest excerpt of President Barack Obama’s interview with the New Yorker magazine’s David Remnick. In that excerpt, Obama blamed Fox News and conservative talker Rush Limbaugh for the gridlock in Washington, D.C. Krauthammer noted Obama has “the commanding heights of the culture” in his corner and said it was unbecoming of the leader of the free world to complain on those grounds. “At least he is not blaming it on climate change or George W.

On Thursday, semi-retired radio talker Neal Boortz predicted the republican party will not win control of the U.S. Senate in the 2014 midterm elections, despite all the pitfalls the democrats and president Barack Obama are facing, particularly with regards to ObamaCare. The reason, Boortz said, would be the GOP’s tendency to run on issues related to social conservatism. Boortz explained the importance to the republic for a GOP win next year while guest hosting Sean Hannity’s Thursday radio show: this whole thing about Phil Robertson and what have you – it speaks a lot to what we have

On Tuesday’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “The O’Reilly Factor,” Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer insisted the divide within the Republican Party has been exaggerated, adding that Republicans disagree over strategy but not ideology. “[I] think this whole thing is as you say very much blown up by the liberal media because it’s a great dramatic story,” Krauthammer said. “But here’s the fundamental contradiction. I think this analysis is wrong.

During the online-only portion of Fox News Channel’s “Special Report” on Wednesday night, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer laid out his theory on what Obamacare’s real intended purpose is: an instrument to redistribute wealth. Krauthammer made that claim in his column last week, but he explained how it works in practice to host Bret Baier and co-panelists former New Jersey Superior Court Judge Andrew Napolitano and The Hill associate editor A.B. Stoddard. That panel was presented with a viewer who asked what would happen if an individual couldn’t pay an insurance provider in the event of some

On Tuesday’s broadcast of Hugh Hewitt’s radio show, MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough hammered President Barack Obama for what he called lies during the sales job for his 2010 health care law. Scarborough was asked by Hewitt if he had any idea how many people would ultimately lose their health care coverage because of that law. Scarborough replied by saying many more Americans would be impacted by that law than what then-President George W. Bush had said in his 2003 state of the union speech regarding Iraq trying to procure yellow cake uranium from Niger.

WASHINGTON — Tennessee Republican Sen. Bob Corker called out fellow Republicans Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and Sen. Mike Lee of Utah Thursday, accusing them of delaying a vote on the bill to fund the government and prevent a government shutdown to suit their own desires for publicity. Cruz, earlier this week, held the floor for over 21 hours, speaking in defense of defunding Obamacare with that government funding bill. He asked other Republican senators to join him in voting against moving forward on a bill passed by the House , which would fund the government while defunding Obamacare.

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings.
