I don't see hispanics trusting the GOP for many years to come. They've worked very hard to alienate that demographic over the last few decades.

Biggest example of that was Arizona's immigration law, which made Existing While Brown an arrestable offense.

Never mind that it was changed from requiring some sort of "lawful contact" (essentially, any non-illegal contact, such as entering the cop's field of vision or asking for the time of day) between a police officer and a person whom he had reasonable suspicion was in the country illegally before he could ask "Papers, Please" to requiring there first be a "lawful stop, detention or arrest"; and never mind that it was struck down by the courts -- none of that will ever changed the fact that the GOP put forth the effort in the first place to make "Not Being White" grounds for arrest.

You're not even allowed to read about brown people in Arizona's public schools.

That was the craziest shiat I've seen, I still can't believe they passed that crap. No wait, I do believe it coming from this rabble. Anyway, it's extremely short-sighted to continue to alienate an entire ethnic group that is not only growing in population, but also wealth and political power. This shouldn't have been a surprise to the GOP, this is a trend that's been going on for 40+ years already, longer even. You cannot hold back the tidal wave by hurling insults at it and building a small fence to try to keep it out. You've got to start swimming, or you'll find yourself sunk. Apparently, up until this last shellacking they received, they really thought that they could cajole and harrass hispanics into leaving, or at least keeping quiet, and then wall them off. The schadenfreude here is delicious.

Conservative Hispanic Group Sends Helpful Memo To GOP Explaining How Not To Be Offensive. "DON'T: Say things like 'send them all home.' DON'T: Use the term 'anchor baby.'" Conservative response: "We will not be ruled!!! You can't tell us what to do, anchor babies!"

The driving force behind the "Permanent Majority" was sucking up to the social conservatism in the Hispanic community to make them all Republicans.

What Karl Rove and his minions never took into account was their own party's rank and file taking one look at the newest Republicans and acting like Sutherland at the end of "Body Snatchers" then introducing the "Build That There Wall High Enough to Keep Anyone Darker Than a Cafe Latte Outa My State" Act.

Hmmm, we can't lose the Hispanic vote again or we're SUNK!  Take a memo, Page!

Dear Hispanic Friends,

We are in touch with your needs and desires and will make a note to strike the phrase "anchor babies" from our lexicon when referring to our Amigos.  From now on, we will only use this phrase to denigrate bastard births at U.S. Naval Bases.

From now on we will refer to you as "Beanie Babies."

How about not dropping the term "illegal" every five seconds, as if they are committing a heinous act of sedition just by showing up.

Yes, I know there are immigration laws, but these people don't understand and don't care. They enter the country "illegally" because INS is the most bloated of government bureaucracies, even more so than your favorite government whipping boy, the Internal Revenue Service. "Undocumented worker" is a) a more accurate description, and b) less likely to make them feel like you're treating them like criminals for the crime of wanting to come to the US.
 
2013-01-29 02:08:35 PM  
The thing that has amazed me about the GOPs recent attempts to woo Hispanics/Latinos/whatever the proper term is these days is this: Everytime someone comes out to discuss it (Yesterday it was Jeff Flake, for instance.) the reason for the change is always about needing the votes to retain power. Not once have I heard any of them say "This will be good for the country" or "The earlier policy wasn't morally defensible", no. They can't bring themselves to say it.

So it's always about "needing the votes".

Not what's good, decent, forward-thinking, god forbid actually helpful to people.

Just their sweet, sweet votes.

It's transparent as hell, and pretty icky.

And unlikely to work. Might even be net losses after the `baggers take their votes and go home. The Latinos aren't going to suddenly go to the GOP with open arms.

I find it interesting how it is no loner called "amnesty" now when the GOP is now behind it. How did that magically change?

Citrate1007: Southern Bible pounders will never get along with Latino Christians because their bigotry is tied to their religious beliefs.


You said a mouthful, Here are a few select Jack Chick pamphlets with an anti-Catholic message readily available at any fundamentalist Christian book store. Right-wing evangelical Christians generally despise Catholics, despite their claims of solidarity on birth control and abortion. In the political world, abandon all reason. Most of the evangelicals I know supported the Mormon, despite the fact that they had decried the Church of Latter Day Saints as a cult. That is, until one of its members ran against the the Muslim usurper.

Corvus: Can't wait to see the Teatards demanding the GOPs heads on pikes when many of them vote for this.


The Tea party nation thinks Marco Rubio couldn't legally run as president because they don't believe he's a natural born citizen. He was born in Miami, FL. Now you may be thinking, "they don't believe he was born in Florida?" No, they think he was born there, but since his parents weren't citizens at the time, they think he is not a natural born citizen.

It's funny, in their quest to deny Obama "natural born" status, they've construed a moronic birther logic (which ignores the actual law on the matter) that invalidates Rubio for President.

INS, how about getting up on some current events. And bloated or not you are assuming that they would be granted permission to come here and work. We can't just let in every poor, unskilled person who desires to come here. It's not a good policy, especially for our poorest citizens.

Thing is, at least for the next few cycles anyway, up to a generation perhaps, Dems can use the GOP's past bigotry as a hammer to beat opponent candidates over the head with, painting the GOP's newfound sympathy toward immigrants as hypocritical and as a bait and switch, given the history, and they really wouldn't be wrong about that. Most people won't be swayed any other way too easily anytime soon.

Yeah they are in a farked situation. They have a choice to bash Hispanics and nationally be worse and worse off a little more every election OR open up to Hispanics and have the bigoted vote go against them but then things to get slightly better year after year.

Considering how conservatives are always screaming about how the phrase "undocumented workers/immigrants" is a liberal plot to make ILLEGAL immigrants sound more tolerable, it's odd that they can't see that calling American citizens "anchor babies" is a conservative plot to do the exact opposite.

/ FWIW, I consider myself to be an ILLEGAL driver, frequently driving 5-10 mph over the speed limit. And I assume that by paying tolls and parking fees, I am "anchor driving," and attempting to legitimize my otherwise illegal behavior. I'm sure conservatives will be picketing my attempt to renew my driver's license as well.

Ah, but what can they do? Their current singular voting bloc of mostly-male, mostly-fundamentalist Christian, white, old voters isn't going to hold up. What they have to bank on in terms of votes just isn't sustainable.

Of course, this is the same party that thinks that drilling for more oil is the best energy policy out there, so maybe the word "sustainable" isn't really in their vocabulary.

When I hear that type of sentiment, I think, lemme get this staring: some brown guy who just crawled under a fence, who is living in a shanty with 15 other people, and doesn't speak English stole your job?
