To be fair, Phyllis Schafly is stuck in the past. She doesn't represent the modern, 21st century GOP.

She's old, white, racist, doesn't believe in women's rights, and...

oh, wait.

Last month, Schlafly advised the GOP to stop its pursuit of Latino voters, lambasting the "" that immigration reform could pull in more of the minority group into the party base. Instead, she said, the party should focus on capturing more of the white vote.

You've reached peak white people, honey.  'Drill baby, drill' only works if there's something left to drill for.

This will get no traction for exactly that reason, and yet when Al Shapton performs yet another self-aggrandizing, ridiculous stunt, Fox News acts like he's still relevant.

In all fairness, they are Faux News. You can't exactly expect honesty out of them.

Don't sweat it. The GOP knows what they're doing. All you have to do is nominate one of their own for something seemingly prominent, like the VIP spot, and they'll vote you into the White House muy pronto. And, without further ado, allow me to introduce...

Sad but unsurprising that so many conservatives are lousy at basic math.

Of course there's their argument that they shouldn't have to 'compromise their principles' just to get a vote.  To which I must wonder:  is demonizing aspiring Americans really a core principle you want to hold?

It galls me terribly that this abhorrent woman shares my mother's first name.
 
2013-06-27 01:55:43 PM  
Sure.  Scare more old white people to the voting booths.  There's a lot of untapped potential there compared to the growing Hispanic population.  Nailed it, Phyllis.

Well, not exactly - that was just my father's pet name for her.

By the way, is it just me, or is it starting to get awfully claustrophobic here in this big tent?

I think at this point it's necessary to the narrative of the right. There's always been an enemy to unite against, be it Nazi's, commies, terrorists, what-have-you. The need to project force while at the same time wanting to appear reasonable demands an external threat.

Nice way to win minority votes, at least you arn't as bad as this other minority vote.

Phyllis Schafly's views were antiquated in the 1970's.  That she still speaks for conservatives should tell you something.
 
2013-06-27 02:05:51 PM  
This would make more sense if someone would explain to her, and to the author of the article, that Hispanics can be of any race.

What she's referring to are basically "Mexicans" who are voting mostly democrat. The worry is misplaced, as most immigrant worry historically has been. Hispanics of all ethnic backgrounds will eventually assimilate and adopt a more "American" culture.
There will always be a part of the African-American ethnicity who will consider themselves separate from America. (Like Michele Obama not being "proud to be American" quotes).

Race/Ethnicty/ with regard to assimilation Is a strange phenomena. Brazil has had ridiculous race issues for as long as the US. Brazil officially ended slavery almost 30 years after the US; their government didnt have insane "Separate but Equal" legislation that needed to be overturned (they did have improvised immigration for "White Europeans" to help whiten the country), yet Afro-Brazilians never condemn their country from within. They always consider it "theirs" despite the institutional racism. Hyphenated designations are not ubiquitous in Brazil.

With that being said, the general public needs to be better informed just what "Hispanic" actually means. It doesnt mean non-white, or non-black, etc. The sooner we understand this fact, the better off we'll be.
 
2013-06-27 02:06:56 PM  
"They come from a country where they have no experience with limited government."

But remember, republicans aren't speaking specifically about Mexicans when they talk about immigrants.

And the types of rights we have in the Bill of Rights, they don't understand that at all, you can't even talk to them about what the Republican principle is."

And this rotting old crow thinks that the GOP owns the Bill of Rights.

I disagree, it is better than those in denial, but I expect all people to attempt to minimize their bigotry. Everybody has some degree of bigotry, but your goal should always be to minimize it.

Nice subtle trolling. Loved the Michelle Obama not considering herself an American part. You'll go far.

Oh, I agree that everyone should try to be less of a bigot.  What I'm referring to is those people who aren't trying to be less bigoted and instead try to conceal their bigotry so they don't look so bad to everyone else.  I much prefer they just be honest and open about it.

The Republican principle is FARK YOU, I GOT MINE.

torr5962:Hyphenated designations are not ubiquitous in Brazil.

I hate these stupid ass "African-American," "Asian-American," etc. terms. I'm white but don't call myself "European-American."

I feel as though one of the first steps we could do to truly unite the country on race issues to simply drop the hyphenated terms and say everyone is "American" if you were born here/became a citizen.

People of European extraction are not required to affirm their status as Americans in the same way that people of color constantly must. I'm pretty sure that no one ever rolled down the window of his pickup when driving past you and hollered at you to go back to England.

I get that. Especially when you look at the "non-racist" crap that the President went through concerning his birth certificate. I just think that it'll help if we removed those terms.

A white woman born in 1924 in Missouri is a racist? What a surprise. She'll be dead or silenced by age/disease within five years anyways, so people really shouldn't give too much of a shiat about what she thinks.

I heard a little AM radio today.(unusual for me, but I drove my grandmother some today)  I heard a passing reference to what Phyllis Schafly said, and wondered why anyone would care.

Course, here on Fark, it's not overlooked.
