(Chuck Muth) – Does anyone remember how almost everyone had a freaking cow over the so-called “racist” Sharron Angle television ads in which three thugs featured in the ad appeared to be Hispanic?
Apparently it’s racist to depict Hispanic thugs and gangbangers who are in this country illegally as Hispanic thugs and gangbangers even if they are Hispanic thugs and gangbangers.
And apparently, showing an image of Hispanic thugs and gangbangers who are in our country illegally and committing violent crimes is, in our politically correct culture, a crime in and of itself. It’s kinda like how jihadists react if you show the image of Mohammed in an unflattering light, but without the beheadings and stuff.
Anyway, the outrage and condemnation of those ads would have you believe that Angle was suggesting that ALL Hispanics were in the country illegally and ALL of them were thugs and gangbangers. Not so. She was simply pointing out a few facts:
(1) Most of the aliens in this country illegally are Hispanic.
(2) A significant number of those illegal Hispanic aliens DO belong to gangs and DO commit violent crimes.
(3) Whether they say so out loud or not, when non-criminal whites, blacks, browns, yellows, oranges and greens see Hispanics who look like street thugs and gangbangers walking their way, they’re scared. Just like Jesse Jackson when he sees black thugs walking his way.
Which brings me to the arrest over the weekend of three individuals who (allegedly) brutally beat a 50-year-old white high school teacher in Las Vegas recently (I wonder if they’ll be charged with a “hate” crime).
The man was guilty of nothing more than walking to work at 5:30 in the morning. Yet these low-life dirtbags left him unconscious in the middle of the street after robbing him. A car then accidentally ran over the poor guy, killing him.
Now take a look (click here) at the mug shots of the three men who (allegedly) beat the hell out of that poor white schoolteacher and left him for dead….and you tell me they couldn’t have been the ones used in those Angle commercials. I’ll say this much, they sure as hell don’t look Canadian!
By the way, I wonder if any or all of these slimeballs were living here in Las Vegas illegally? I’ve read stories in both the Las Vegas Sun and Las Vegas Review-Journal on this incident and neither story references the suspects’ immigration status.
Did police even check after the arrests? Or is it “racist” to even ask that question based solely on the fact these pukes don’t look Canadian, were busted for having (allegedly) committed a violent crime, and have Hispanic names?
Which reminds me, a reader wrote after the election and asked the Million Dollar Question: “What do the Republicans do, given the large demographic Hispanic voter increase projected?” Actually, the answer is simple:
1.) Stop talking about deporting 12-20 million illegal aliens presently living in this country. It ain’t gonna happen….period.
2.) If we’re not going to round up and deport 12-20 million illegal aliens presently living in this country, then what do we do with them?
Resolving those two issues will eliminate a lot of the fear and loathing many Hispanics have for Republicans and will set the stage for solutions to a variety of other immigration concerns and problems – including an end to printing government documents in Spanish at taxpayer expense and ending birthright citizenship.
Speaking of which, the Associated Press reported on Monday that “Roughly one-in-four children born in Nevada in 2008 were to mothers who were not U.S. citizens, according to a new report. The Census Bureau said 26.3 percent of children born in Nevada that year were to non-citizen mothers.”
Nevertheless, if Republicans keep talking about massive deportations – even for people here with families who are working and not living off welfare, and have been here longer than the statute of limitations for far worse crimes – they risk the Hispanic vote becoming a permanent minority vote for Democrats….just like the black vote.
Ah, but there’s a danger there for Hispanics, as well. Once Democrats can take the Hispanic vote for granted, Hispanics will be treated by the Democrats the way the Democrats treat blacks – like a door mat. Is that really what Hispanics want?
If the Farmers and the Cowboys can be friends in “Oklahoma,” can’t the Gringos and the Latinos be friends in the GOP?
