Posted on 07/27/2011 3:32:04 PM PDT by montag813
The same day Barack Obama spoke before the annual conference of the National Council of La Raza ("The Race"), all nine Republican Presidential candidates declined to accept the invitation of NCLR President Janet Murguia. They are no dummies. La Raza has been recently exposed as a racially-divisive organization which pimps for amnesty for illegals - accusing any officials who endorse the rule of law as "racist" or "anti-Latino". They also fund racist charter schools such as those in the un-American "La Raza Studies" program in Tucson which we and others have exposed; and is funded by taxpayers to fund its separatist agenda, such as Latino-only scholarships, increased funding for welfare specifically for Latinos, and foreclosure assistance for Latinos (this after playing a major role in provoking the housing crash by suing banks to force subprime loans to poor Latinos and illegals).
But Janet Murguia has quite a chip on her shoulder. Murguia falsely poses the NCLR as THE group representing ALL Latinos. Thus in a not-so-veiled threat, she said this about the Republicans who refused to legitimize her race-baiting fest:
By turning down the invitation, Murguîa told Latina, To me, it reflects that we are not a priority. The NCLR conference is one of the largest Latino events in the country. Even Republican political analysts have been saying that the next president needs to have 40% of the Latino vote to get elected, and yet there is this failure among Republicans to even be part of the conversation.To Murguia, the NCLR IS "Latinos". ALL Latinos. This despite polls showing many Latinos - when (rarely) asked by the media - disagree with her views on Arizona's immigration law, and despite many Latinos who have spoken out against illegal immigration. La Raza does NOT represent some monolithic "Latino" block, but rather is an Al Sharpton-style race-baiting cabal, dividing Americans by race, solely to increase its own power.
Republicans who believe Murguia's lies do so at their own peril. Because the vast majority of the electorate are outraged by illegal immigration, Obama's stealth amnesty for illegals via the infamous ICE memos, and the $113 billion illegals cost the U.S. every year, bankrupting schools, hospitals and social services from coast to coast.
Thankfully, if dissing La Raza's conference is a clue, they are hearing the voice of the people on this issue. Bravo. Now keep it up.
No pubbies showed up to pander to Guillermo?
Or toss out a few phrases in bad Spanish?
I’m shocked! Shocked, I say!!
Well well well.
Good for them. Each and every one. Even Romney. Well done.
“La Raza” Really?
What kind of group would name themselves “The Race”?
Freedom and justice for all? Or just for “The Race”
I will never vote for anybody who goes to a La Raza (the Klan with a tan) convention. That dope McCain went to their convention in 2008. What good did it do for him?
Not while we’re looking anyway.
O’BlahBlah has just painted himself into a box! Sure he’ll get the “Illegal vote” but for every one he gets he will lose two AMERICAN votes.
“That dope McCain”
And his buddy Lindsey “we’re going to tell the bigots to shut up” Graham: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yw3CLZuYqRk
The government should not be funding non-government entities, period. Especially racist ones.
“For the race, everything. Outside the race, nothing”
That is apparently their motto
When Obama said he would like to be a dictator they cheered and chanted “Yes, you can!”
Rick Perry spoke at a LaRaza event last July.
“the Klan with a tan”
That needs to be mentioned whenever La Raza is mentioned.
Why doesn’t that surprise me?
The Perry supporters will tell you that La Raza didn’t like what he had to say but the point is that he should have snubbed them in the first place. Its like going to a klan rally as far as I’m concerned.
Thanks for the link... going there now.
La Raza is a worn out and elderly 1960’s student radical organization that was revived by the Democratic Party a few years ago. They are trying to convert it into the place for Hispanics, even though few Hispanics (particularly those from Marxist or socialist countries) would support their agenda.
Basically, this is the way the Dems took over blacks. They either built new organizations or infiltrated existing local organizations so that they could use them to build their base. They’re doing the same thing with Hispanics now.
We have to stop them.
