Reid: How Could Any Hispanics Vote GOP?

From the Las Vegas NBC affiliate KRLV-TV:


Harry Reid announces English language program, courts Hispanic vote

Jeff Gillan reporting
August 10, 2010

The economy may make or break Democrats this fall. However, immigration reform remains one of America’s hot button issues.

On Tuesday, Senator Harry Reid, fighting for reelection, reached out again to a voting block he’ll need in November.

The room at Hermandad Mexicana could not have been more crowded. Harry Reid’s message could not have been more direct.

“I don’t know how anyone of Hispanic heritage could be a Republican,” said Reid. “Do I need to say more?”

No, we think you’ve said enough. In fact, you could have stopped at “I don’t know.” It’s pretty safe to say that there are a lot of things Mr. Reid doesn’t know.

Surprisingly, Mr. Reid did not use an Hispanic dialect when he said this.

But just remember that Sharron Angle is supposed to be the ‘crackpot.’

Once again, try applying the ‘what if a Republican had said this’ rule. What if Mitch McConnell had said, "I don’t know how any white person could be a Democrat"? There would be a meltdown all across the Ruling Class Media Complex.

He needn’t have said more to the crowd stuffed into the small conference room to learn about a new initiative that will help Latinos learn English.

Three times a week, radio station KRVL will become an English classroom, broadcasting English lessons to its Latino audience. This rollout allowed Reid to talk about language.

“Learning English is an essential step to being fully integrated into American society.”

You see, if it weren’t for these radio broadcasts illegal aliens in this country would never have a chance to learn English or even hear it spoken.

The backdrop Tuesday allowed Reid to call again for comprehensive immigration reform. For Reid, that means those here illegally going to the back of the line before they come in through the front doors.

“What we have to do is have them get right with the law and that can be done. We can do that by their paying the penalties, fines, learning English and staying out of trouble.”

Such tough talk. In reality, of course, Mr. Reid simply wants amnesty. And not only for those already here, but the rest of their extended families outside of the US.

And, ultimately, this means ‘open borders,’ since nothing will ever be done to stop illegal aliens coming here in the future. And they will come here in increasing numbers, knowing that they too will eventually get citizenship and all of its benefits.

Polls show Nevadans support a tougher line against illegal immigrants. Reid’s opponent, Republican Sharron Angle, does too. Reid sees it differently.

“All I know is that in this great country of ours everyone should be treated fairly and that’s all this is about. It’s an issue of fairness.”

And on Tuesday it was an issue of learning English and hoping that someday this country can speak the same language on immigration.

Mind you, this is supposed to be a news report.

But, indeed, we should all “speak the same language on immigration.” We should enforce the laws that are on the books without race-baiting for political advantage.

We should preserve this country for the people who built it with their sweat and blood.

After all, “it’s an issue of fairness.”

    Simple, you moron, a lot of immigrants from Latin/Spanish cultures/countries are Catholic and therefore pro-life.

    I cannot figure out why anyone with two brain cells functioning vote for Reid, Pelosi, Obama and their assorted merry morons known as the DNC, they are just stuck on stupid, vain beyond the pale and so elitist – they make hollyweird ‘You like me, you really like me’ morons look humble. [Bonus points kiddies if you can name the 'star' who actually said that phrase at an award ceremony (won't say the award, as that would narrow the field)]

    I spent 29 years following soldier hubbies around – two situations there really stuck out to me – a pair of Hispanic soldiers (and wives) who were very close to each other but did nothing to learn or even attempt basic comprehension of English – these were not privates – these were young Officers given a pass (hmmm, I wonder why) – who failed miserably once the mantel of actual responsibility was on their shoulders – actually angry that everyone around them was insisting they learn English. . .And a bit later – met a woman who was of Swedish decent – got into how it came about as I was pretty sure that we didn’t have Army postings in Sweden – turned out her Dad met her Mom while in service – both attended a foreign college. Mom was visiting and spoke great English – I asked her how hard it was to learn – she said, ‘I learned English from Seseme Street while Beth was watching it as a toddler.”

    My neighbors here are not American born (IAfrica, but Buddy always says, Iowa when you ask where he’s from) – his wife learned English from the childrens books Buddy took out of the library for their son. She got her drivers license last year.

    I do not know how blacks and other minorities even consider voting for a Party that insults them and holds them in such disdain. That alone would keep me from ever voting Democrat – no matter even if the GOP runs McAmnesty until he dies.

      “I do not know how blacks and other minorities even consider voting for a Party that insults them and holds them in such disdain.”

      That has been my thought for a while. The Dems (not alone, but by far the worst transgressor) have long been telling minorities that they are stupid to vote for anyone but them. But it goes a little deeper than that. It seems to me the official party platform is that being a minority is a handicap, and that they need to be treated like invalids (IE given a free ride, more breaks, fewer impediments than whites) in order to even consider any semblance of acheivement. They then point to all the failed programs designed just for minorities and tell tehm thats as good as it will ever get for them, but at least its free, and will stay that way if they vote D. I for one can’t think of anything more racist than telling a minority that simply because they are not white they have no chance.

      And I suspect that a lot fewer of them buy that line and take the lazy way out than we are told about. But letting whites think that is the case breeds contempt, which then follows with racial tension and more injustices real or imagined. It’s a truly sickening cycle.

      Anyone who wants to see the vapid stupidity of Reid and his ilk –
      Check out In A Heartbeat – the story behind Michael Oher (The Blind Side)
      Check out the whole story of Chief Carl Brashear (Men of Honor)
      or how about Oprah Winfrey?

      Just a few examples of people who overcame horrid ‘compelling personal stories’ to achieve both in education and profession – It is when you remove the hollyweird glitz and distortion – a story of a person who desires to achieve, who wants to be better and people and situations around them that work to bring it about. But in the end (and at the beginning) it was something deep inside the person to not let ‘the now’ destroy them and who chose to do the heavy lifting and hard work to accomplish their goals.

      Those stories should be inspirational to all Americans – and leave the divisive nomenclature of race/sex out of it.

    “I don’t know how anyone of Hispanic heritage could be a Republican . . . ?”

    Oh! Oh! (Petronius waving his outstretched hand in the air, practically jumping out of his seat.) I know! I know!

    It may perhaps be because many Hispanics are loyal Americans.

    And many are Christians as well.

    And a great many believe in marriage and family.

    While others are simply not into anti-white racism and class warfare.

    But chiefly I think it is because many are refugees who have seen your like before, Harry.

    Yes, they have seen and heard it all before –– in Cuba, in Nicaragua, in Chile, Venezuela, El Salvador, and elsewhere.

    They have seen it all before, Harry, and they don’t want to see it again. No, they much prefer freedom to anything you have to offer.

      Hispanics may hold the keys to America’s future.

      As Petronius and wm both say, Hispanic citizens have a lot in common with Americans who built this country.

      Liberals are betting they are brain-dead proto-slaves who will follow the wealthiest piper over a cliff.

      I’m betting they aren’t.

    • AcornsRNutz

      Some are and some aren’t. The problem is that the open border policy ensures we get many more of the latter and discouraging theformer from coming here and dealing with what they left behind. I agree though, there will come a time when the quality of the hispanics who oppose the systematic destruction of the American dream outweigh the quantity of those who come to mooch and ruin.

    • Right of the People

      I know quite a few LEGAL immigrants who absolutely despise the illegals and for the most part are conservative minded.

      They despise the illegals because they took the effort and expense of coming here the right way paying the fees, filing the paperwork and going to the classes to get their citizenship because they want all our great country can offer.

      Once they get their citizenship papers most of them never miss an election and are some of the most patriotic people I know. They know the history and laws of our country better than 99% of the kids “educated” by our public schools which really makes me ashamed of the state of disrepair our school systems have fallen to. Because of their knowledge the majority of them vote Republican.

    You guys have this one covered and I love the responses. This crap just makes me sick to read.

    EDIT – Rush: “I don’t know how any man could be a Liberal.”

    Great answer.

    “I don’t know how anyone of Hispanic heritage could be a Republican,” said Reid.

    Well Reid, let me explain it to you.
    I support enforcement of the law.
    I support my country. I support national security. I support the people who came here legally and made something of themselves.

    I do not support people who take the easy route here, break our laws, expect special treatment based on racial / ethnic heritage, take American jobs for less than minimum wage, and traffic anchor babies in order to qualify for welfare. I do not support terrorism, drug trafficking and open borders. I do not support keeping minorities in a constant state of dependence, ignorance, and resentment. ¿Me comprendes?

    I think the real question, Mr. Reid, is how could anyone vote for you?
