It’s about R-E-S-P-E-C-T
National Review Online, by Avik Roy

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/7/2013 8:35:18 AM

‘We’ve got to get rid of the immigration issue altogether,” said Sean Hannity in the aftermath of the election. “It’s simple for me to fix it . . . it’s got to be resolved . . . first secure the border, pathway to citizenship, done, you know whatever little penalties you want to put in there, if you want, but then it’s done.” (Snip)The real problem is that many Hispanics feel that Republicans don’t respect them. That feeling of disrespect — amplified by the liberal press —emerges from many things that Republicans say, and rhetoric on immigration

Comments:
This is what Rubio keeps trying to tell us. And, if you listen to Ted Cruz, he agrees. We can´t keep referring to Hispanics as if they are all illegal border-crossers and welfare addicts.

I just spent 1 and 1/2 hours listening to local talk radio discuss this issue.
With the exception of ONE hispanic, ALL had chips on their shoulders. The attitude is "we´re here now, so what are you going to do about it"?
The callers really rubbed me the wrong way.
Instead of being sympathetic, I now think they should go back and take La Raza with them.
None had anything positive to say about being here. Talk about mind-numbed robots!

I´m all for it if they want to assimilate and become Americans.

But,that´s not what they want.They want to be Mexicans with American benefits.

I don´t give a damn what Rubio says. Virtually every new border crosser will be a democrat voter and a burden on our resources.
Heck no. No ILLEGALS getting citizenship with all the attached benefits. No, ALL are not bad but too many illegals are drug smugglers, human traffickers, gang members, and petty criminals. Even the ones that are just good people are very low skilled and we do not need them or the privilege of paying for their education, food stamps, health care, etc. Unemployment is 7.9. We need to add to that???? FOR WHAT?
Keep Importing mexicans and make them legal voters and the country will be nothing but another bananna republic in no time.
So quit the bull. This is ONLY about getting votes for the Dems and RINOS.
Just who the heck are these petty tyrants to give our country away?

Here´s the problem. There are two types of Hispanics. Those like Rubio, Cruz, and Colon and then there´s the LaRaza illegals. Guess who makes their case in the media? If Rubio gets a national audience to hear him after the State of the Union address, maybe just maybe, he´ll be heard

It is not all about illegals. Think of the Hispanic citizens who live here and have lived here for generations. It is offensive and insulting to them for us to consider all Hispanics an offensive lump of intruders. They are proud members of the Armed Forces, legislators, Scout leaders, teachers, neighbors.

There is a difference, my friends.

He is barking up the wrong tree. Jeb Bush speaks fluent Spanish, has a Hispanic wife. If he is nominated do you think Hispanics are going to flock to the Republican ticket in droves? Don´t hold your breath. Mr. Roy is right in the statement that you must understand where they ´live´ in their minds and their consciousness. That does not bode well for anyone preaching secure borders first (your cousin cannot get through), limited government (lack of services you ´deserve´), low taxes (you don´t pay any), individual liberty (just a free license for whitey to discriminate and get rich at your expense).
We need a great communicator like RR. But then what else is new?

If you bother to read the article without your bias leading the way, it´s a very good, level-headed analysis.

Lumping anyone hispanic in with illegal immigrants is the problem many conservatives have, and the contempt that accompanies that pre-judging comes across as We Don´t Like You. Why would a legal citizen of any stripe vote for a group a candidate who represents a mentality like that?

Even more simple: Enforce the laws already on the books. In fact, I would like to read just what the laws say and ask the question; if we already have immigration laws and they are being ignored, what is the point of new laws? I think the only objective of certain people pushing this issue, an issue that does not benefit the average American, is to open this country to an onslaught of economic migrants, for their own nefarious purposes. Therefore my answer to the problem is; Enforce the Laws, now! That really would get rid of the issue, Sean.

Hey 7. Nobody said ALL and you know it.

Just because there are good legal hispanics here does not eliminate the issues of criminals crossing the border every day. And giving them the grand prize of legal status doesn´t make them model citizens or make them like conservatives. How about the hispanic community standing up for the rule of law instead of La Raza tribalism?

You want respect,then respect the laws and respect the borders.
This is nothing but amnesty pure and simple for no other reason but political power.

These folks disrespect us by demanding that we ignore our own borders and own laws.
When they steal across our borders, steal our SSNs and identities, steal our public benefits, they are nothing more than thieves.
Thieves don´t get my respect, neither do people who support thieves for political gain.

This is a fake issue. Some of the politicians who created this problem are no longer living, for example Ted Kennedy. This entire issue is between politicians and US citizens. That is, politicians must admit they intentionally ruined our country and our lives sometimes causing death by refusing to secure the border. People who cross Mexico´s border are do not expect respect. They´re lucky to get out without being beaten up or killed.

I´m supposed to "respect" illegal aliens who broke into my country and now demand to be treated exactly like the honest, law abiding people who came here the right way?

Never. Immigration "reform" is an immoral redistribution plan in disguise, cooked up by politicians. It asks nothing of Mexico´s wealthy. It allows Mexico to wash its hands of millions of its own poor, and transfers the responsibility for their care and feeding to struggling Americans. It´s designed to lower our own standard of living in preparation for more global control at the expense of American sovereignty. And our politicians are in on it. God save us from the Bush family.

I personally have no respect for people who break our immigration laws, and, by extension, I have no respect for any American who does not respect our immigration laws. I don´t care if you´re hispanic, greek, or an Icelander.

It´s pathetic that we have republicans (Rubio, for one), turning their backs on our laws, refusing to instead call unwaveringly for enforcement of our laws.

If anyone thought republicans were the last bastion of fairness and upholding the law, well, obviously, you can forget about that!

Don´t forget it is virtually impossible to enter this country if you came from overseas - but it is so much easier when you have a lovely long land border and your goons control 90 miles of the USA north of the border. Come here legally, or not at all.

Hispanics will never vote for Republicans in large numbers-never. Even Reagan, who gave them amnesty, still didn´t receive a majority of their votes in his re-election. They are no different from the Black community whining about "victim hood" and demanding entitlements. Illegal Mexicans are used to being subjects not citizens and the government doing everything for them, this a cultural attitude that we can´t change. illegal Cubans are a different story altogether, they are less likely to be on welfare and more likely to vote GOP.

Hannity is stupid on this issue. If the wimpy Republicans ever give the liberal Democrats the political cover they need to put just about all the 11-20 million illegal aliens here now on a special path to citizenship, as Hannity appears to be happy to go along with, something that has never been done before in the history of US immigration law, before the wimpy Republicans figure out what is happening, the liberal Democrats through their political allies, the many very liberal ethnic and immigrant rights groups who operate in immigrant communities across the country will have already signed up 10 million or so new Democrat voters.

Once the liberal Democrats have that many new voters on line, they will be able to change the political balance of the country and send the wimpy Republicans on a long-term slide to political suicide. After that happens, you have to wonder what Hannity will propose next?

We supposedly took care of this problem in the 1980´s with Simpson-Mazzoli, but as usual, the government didn´t do its due dilligence to follow the law it passed.

So now rather than solve a problem, we want to open another can of worms that will further be disregarded as some quick and easy solution that has to be resolved so fast that a bad idea will become law.

Ever since Hannity began putting his stamp on this, I have stopped listening to him and all his ´pals´ like Juan Williams.

Guest workers, anchor babies, lawlessness are much more serious issues than in trying to pander to "instant voters" for either party. Certainly nobody can be against someone trying to better themselves, but right now, its money and jobs taken out of US citizens´ pockets.....

If you´re Mexican and want respect from us, why don´t you try respecting the United States--liking being here--instead of looking at it as one big ´gimmee´. I don´t know any of us that wouldn´t love to have here someone who loved America--and acted like it. We´re not just here for you to take from.

I´d like to see the source for all these conservatives who are lumping all Hispanics in with the illegal immigrants & welfare addicts. I listen to Rush just about every day & have never heard it from him or any of my local conservatives - Edd Hendee, Michael Berry, Dan Patrick, or Chris Baker.

Sean says "first secure the border" - 0bama has already nixed this so that´s a non-starter. Still want to have immigration reform without it?

FTA: According to some conservatives, Hispanics are a natural liberal constituency, owing to their lower income and education levels

Actually, I frequently hear they are natural social conservatives due to their Catholicism.

FTA: How many of us talk politics with our Hispanic friends? How many of us have Hispanic friends?

I do. I have several conservative Hispanic friends. Only 1 is Cuban-American & all the rest are Mexican-American. One interesting insight I learned from one of them was that many Hispanics respect Hillary for staying with her unfaithful husband in contrast to many Anglos who see it as a sign of weakness & lack of self-respect.

(Continued)

FTA: Republicans could probably boost their performance with Hispanics simply by requiring any Republican candidate for Congress or statewide office to take a beginner’s course in the language of Latin America.

Seriously? "Requiring"? Our Republic is in crisis but please take time away from trying to come up with ideas to keep us from turning into Greece so you can study Espanol? This sort of thing is why the term "Hispandering" was invented. I´d rather they take a course in the U.S. Constitution - preferably taught by Ted Cruz.

The GOP showed all kinds of respect to Hispanics at their convention, but the media quashed any coverage of it - deliberately cutting away to commentators when anybody not lily white took the stage.

It is a long flight, but one Texas governor has a singular calling. Rick Perry has departed for the Republic of Palua, where many thousands of U.S. forces saw fierce fighting during the Pacific campaign of World War II on the islands of Peleliu and Angaur. Mr. Perry has joined up with the BentProp Project, an independent group that has indexed crash sites of 29 American aircraft - Corsairs, Avengers, B-24s and cargo planes.

A fault line discovered in the 90s is rattling nerves in Southern California, where millions have been living on shaky ground. The 25-mile Puente Hills thrust fault, which slices below Los Angeles neighborhoods, downtown skyscrapers, bridges and freeways, could cause catastrophic damage. A week ago today, a magnitude 5.1 earthquake on the fault broke water mains, cracked foundations, and triggered a rock slide. Experts say a 7.5 would be devastating -- and if the Big One struck, it could kill as many as 18,000 people and displace 750,000. That’s because much of Los Angeles’ infrastructure isn’t earthquake-proof. Bridges aren´t built to modern earthquake

A big puzzle looms over the U.S. economy: Friday´s jobs report tells us that the unemployment rate has fallen to 6.7% from a peak of 10% at the height of the Great Recession. But at the same time, only 63.2% of Americans 16 or older are participating in the labor force, which, while up a bit in March, is down substantially since 2000. As recently as the late 1990s, the U.S. was a nation in which employment, job creation and labor force participation went hand in hand. That is no longer the case. What´s going on?

At parties, Charlie Chaplin could usually be counted on to liven up the atmosphere. Determined to be the centre of attention, he’d mime the parts of a bull and matador or dance with invisible balloons. Then, using his skills as a mimic, he’d pretend to be one Hollywood leading lady after another — in the throes of love-making. Whether he’d slept with them all is open to doubt, but he was incorrigible in making advances to female film stars. He boasted frequently about his conquests, and eventually confessed to having had sexual relations with more than 2,000 women. What did they all

Despite the violence and uncertainty surrounding this Saturday’s election for a new Afghan President, there’s one positive —Hamid Karzai, the sitting president and the architect of much of the country’s unrest, is not on the ballot this time. But while Karzai must cede power under the rules of the Afghan constitution, the other leader whose mismanagement helped tank Afghanistan abandoned his influence in what he once called “the right war” a long time ago. That leader is President Barack Obama. An outright winner is unlikely

The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors.

Muslim moms and dads in Dearborn, Mich. are upset after students received flyers promoting an Easter Egg hunt at a local Presbyterian church. The parents say the egg hunt violates the U.S. Constitution. The Muslims told the Detroit Free-Press that they were concerned about the religious implications of Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church’s “Eggstravaganza!” They were also troubled by images of a bunny rabbit. “It really bothered my two kids,” parent Majed Moughni, told the newspaper. “My son was like, ‘Dad, I really don’t feel comfortable getting these flyers, telling me to go to church. I thought churches are not supposed

A senior CIA official has died in an apparent suicide this week from injuries sustained after jumping off a building in northern Virginia, according to sources close to the CIA. CIA spokesman Christopher White confirmed the death and said the incident did not take place at CIA headquarters in McLean, Va. “We can confirm that there was an individual fatally injured at a facility where agency work is done,” White told the Washington Free Beacon. “He was rushed to a local area hospital where he subsequently died. Due to privacy reasons and out of respect for the family, we are not releasing

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

Earlier this week on Boston’s WRKO-AM’s The Howie Carr Show, conservative commentator Ann Coulter shocked some conservatives when she said she is making 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney her favorite for the 2016 Republican contest. Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

A 54-year-old white man has been left barely clinging to life after he was brutally beaten by a group of black men when he got out of his car to check on a young black boy he accidentally hit. Steve Utash, from suburban Roseville, was beaten into a coma Wednesday by an angry mob in a poverty-stricken Detroit neighborhood after David Harris, 10, ran in front of his truck on a busy street, but police insist the incident was not racially motivated. The gang also stole his wallet before leaving him for dead. Utash is in extremely critical

President Barack Obama contended that the government did not “make a hard sell” for Obamacare, despite his administration spending nearly $700 million to promote the law. “We didn’t make a hard sell,” Obama said in the Rose Garden on Tuesday, praising the 7.1 million sign ups for the Affordable Care Act. “We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did.” However, last July the Associated Press reported that Obamacare’s marketing campaign would cost at least $684 million. Taxpayer funding went to all 50 states in efforts to encourage people to enroll, including nearly $28 million for the

Attorney General Eric Holder disputed a Government Accountability Office report on his use of Justice Department airplanes for personal trips, saying it overstated the number of trips he took and failed to recognize that some trips were job-related. "My staff keeps telling me to take it easy, you know, well, this is one that gets me," Holder told Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing. "There was this notion that we´ve taken -- I think it was described as hundreds of personal trips. That was wrong. GAO counted flights, not round trips. And we looked at it

Following her speech at the “Women of the World Summit” in New York City on Thursday, Hillary Clinton was asked this simple question by a moderator: “When you look at your time as Secretary of State, what are you most proud of? And what do you feel was unfinished, and maybe have another crack at one day?” Here are a few excerpts from her response: ”Look, I really see my role as Secretary, in fact leadership in general in a democracy, as a relay race. When you run the best race you can run, you hand off the baton.” “Some

Accra, Ghana — Jimmy Thorne says that relocating to Ghana is one of the best moves he’s ever made. It doesn’t matter if he, an African-American, gets called “obroni,” the local word for white person, in the streets, or if some of his family can’t quite figure out what he’s doing in this West African nation so far from his roots in North Carolina. (Snip) Whether motivated by love, money, or the desire to rekindle a long-lost connection, black repatriation to Africa remains alive and well, even if it never quite became the high-volume, emotional return to African roots
