Ted Cruz isn't doing a good enough job by himself?

Speaking of hiring Hispanic staff from the parking lot of the Home Depot, Republican Senate Candidate from New Jersey, Steve Lonegan used to be the director of the NJ chapter of the Koch Brother's Americans for Prosperity.

He was once caught hiring undocumented aliens in the parking lot of a Home Depot to put up Americans for Prosperity signs.

It doesn't matter if you hire Cesar Chavez, Julio Cesar Chavez and the guy who invented salsa for outreach when the bulk of the party spends all day on Facebook posting "Why ain't them there Park Rangers gaurdin the BORDEr insteada the memorials!"

Pretty much this. All the outreach in the world won't help you if your policies consistently hurt and denigrate the people you're reaching out to. And I didn't see a single damn thing in that article about changing policy.

California, Florida, New Jersey, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, Texas and Virginia

What if they run out of Cubans? Are there enough Cubans for Texas, California, New Mexico? In Virginia, they just put a sombrero on an owl and are done.

Smart move. Now they can ensure that there will be nothing lost in translation when they tell minority voters that they are second-class citizens whose pet issues are unimportant.

Hiring Cuban conservatives to talk to Mexicans and Central Americans and telling them to go home is a kind of "Hispanic Engagement" I guess.

Does anybody else have the feeling that "Hispanic outreach" is Republican code for slapping brown people you haven't disenfranchised yet?

There is literally nothing for them to reach out with, other than "JESUS JESUS JESUS ABORTIONS GAYS JESUS GAY MARRIAGE ABORTIONS!!!!"

There's no other overlap between the GOP and Hispanics.  Even *those* are fading from the Hispanic side...

Poor Whites generally don't have Grandma sitting in the next room without her immigration papers.

And the local Republican-leaning yokels aren't telling them to "go back to where you came from!"

If they succeed in their plan to destroy the country and bring down American democracy, nobody will even want to illegally immigrate.

No, but they do tell them to "get a job", "don't organize because that is communism", and "you can get all the guns you want, but good luck getting health care when your neighbor shoots you."

The Obama administration has been pushing hard for the DREAM act, and essentially instituted it with DACA as much as they can without having the votes to actually pass DREAM without a filibuster.

I'm pretty sure, asswipe, it means that Obama took seriously the part in the Oath Of Office where it goes on about upholding the Constitution and the laws of the United States. As the teatards are stridently declaiming the problem of the illegals on their FB page to the acclaim of their teatard friends, the undocumented workers fixing their roof and pulling their weeds are pleased as punch that they'll get a paycheck.

sprawl15: Man, I can't imagine how much the GOP hates this new pope.



SOOOOOOOOOOOO much.  But most of the GOP is anti-Papist anyway.

haemaker: No, but they do tell them to "get a job", "don't organize because that is communism", and "you can get all the guns you want, but good luck getting health care when your neighbor shoots you."



Apples and oranges (no, this isn't a Boehner pun).  "Get a Job!" is only for those lazy layabouts, not for the honest Real Americans who are simply down on their luck.  Like that neighbor kid, Jimmy!  Useless turd!  GET A JOB!  I'm gonna sit here an' watch NASCAR until the plant calls me back to my old job...any day now...

The other two simply don't matter.  Self-interest isn't for Real Americans, because they put in honest work for whatever their work is worth to their employer, and ain't no bullet hole can't be fixed with a shop rag and some Jack.

I really, really wish I were kidding.  I grew up with those people.

Holy crap that reminds me!  When I was in high school I referred to a female guest speaker as "Latino" because I knew "Hispanic" was not the preferred nomenclature and got my ass handed to me by her for not referring to her as "Latina".  I looked at my teacher and gave him the "Well, I tried" shrug.

Well, are you Hispanic? Are you Latino/a?

While they mean completely different things, there is overlap. Saying you don't like one is just as ridiculous as complaining, "I'm Latino/a! I don't like being called a woman!"

No, it's like saying they're Zuluish (or whatever other tribe - I pulled one out of a hat).  Someone partially of Spanish descent is just as Hispanic as I am Germanic.

But I'm just being pedantic because I'm bored.  Although, if you have no Spanish ancestry, it would be flat-out wrong to call you Hispanic.  In that case, a more fitting descriptor would be either one of your descent, or of your extraction, so Latina would be more accurate, and therefore correct.

No, I don't care about how people feel about shiat like this.  Like I said: pedant.  Bored pedant.
