Biden to Latinos: You were here first
Politico ^ | 09/30/11 | JULIE MASON

Posted on 09/30/2011 8:58:12 PM PDT by moonshinner_09

Vice President Joe Biden compared immigration to the United States for Irish and Hispanic people — but noted Hispanic immigrants were here first.

Biden on Thursday hosted the annual Hispanic Heritage Month reception at the Naval Observatory. Guests included about 100 Hispanic veterans, active duty service members, elected officials and others. The music was classical Mexican.

"You all were here before us," Biden said, according to a pool report.

Biden noted his own background as the descendant of Irish immigrants, saying, “We come from a similar circumstance. It’s about family, it’s about faith and it’s about basic things."

The event coincides with a stepped-up effort by the administration to improve relations with Hispanic voters. Once among President Barack Obama's most enthusiastic constituencies, Hispanic support for the administration has flagged with the stall-out of immigration reform and other key priorities.

The Kennewick Man would beg to differ but he was killed by those Obama claims were here first.

I'm assuming Obama was speaking in Nahuatl

The choice of Biden as VP has to be hung around Obama’s neck next fall. This man is a fool. And as they say, it’;s the first Presidential decision the President makes.

Parts of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California were, indeed, settled by people from Mexico prior to their loss of territory in the Mexican War.

The vast majority of them were damn happy when Santa Ana and his armies got their butts kicked and they became Americans. Some of these same Latinos even fought on our side at the Alamo or in the Mexican War or were married to Americans which did.

The fact that we rolled out the welcome mat to these people who wanted to be Americans and not just wanted to milk Americans does not give Carte Blanche to everyone south of the border (many of whom openly preach and call for reconquest) who wants to move here or remain here and continue to milk the system dry.

And, yes, to be fair, a relative handful of them were not happy to have their lands acquired by the Americans a mere 37 years after Mexico achieved independence. Some of them weren't treated really nice. But they were all given the choice to stay and keep their lands on condition of an oath of allegiance to their new country or to peacefully pack up and leave. Guess which most of them chose to do?

"You all were here before us," Biden said

Unless they were over the age of 69, Biden was here before they were.

A person standing before Biden is a separate human being than some ancestor of that person hundreds of years ago.

How can anyone respect someone who does such craven groveling? Don't they cringe in embarassment for him? Or just laugh at his idiocy?

How very “reconquista” of Biden.

Actually, Indians were in Mexico first.

In northern New Mexico and elsewhere, many hispanics are very proud of their Spanish heritage....they wouldn’t ever think of themselves as Mexicans because they aren’t.

Were not the indigenous people in Mexico, long long before the “Latino” Conquistadors arrived to steal their gold?

Talk about historical revisionism.

"You all were here before us," Biden said, according to a pool report.

Define "here" and "us" and "you" jackass.

Mexico was invaded by Spanyards and Basques (Basques are not Spanyards). Their descendants are considered Hispanic like Cubans, Central Americans and Puerto Ricans, Spanyards and others with Spanish surnames.

Latinos are those from "Latin America" not all Hispanic. From a geographic area.

“Parts of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California were, indeed, settled by people from Mexico prior to their loss of territory in the Mexican War.”

Very few Mexicans settled north of the Rio Grande. That region was Comancheria, the land of the Comanche and Apache. These were the hardest fighting of North American Indians, and they killed and stole from Mexicans as they willed. The Comanche and Apache weren’t defeated and pacified until well after the Civil War, after decades of battling Texans and the US Army.

Who did he have in mind when he said “You were here first”? It can be either the Native Americans, or non-Hispanic European. If he was thinking about Native Americans, that would be incorrect as many Hispanic are of pure European descents. If he was thinking Spaniards as ‘Hispanic’ (which some might find it incorrect), then he probably was thinking about Christopher Columbus. While he came under Spanish banner, he was an Italian. In any case, wasn’t the first Europeans a the Nordic group?

The inhabitants of what is now Mexico did not speak any Latin based language, until they were invaded by the foreign Conquistadors.

Perhaps Biden should learn to speak Mayan.

I guess the Norte Chico, Cahokia, Zapotec, Toltec, Olmec, Maya, Aztec, Purepecha, Chimor, Mixtec, Moche, Mississippian, Totonac, Teotihuacan, Huastec people, Tarascan, Izapa, Mazatec, and the Inca don't count in Biden’s mind.......or is that the vacuum between his ears and beneath his plugs.

Montezuma, with his primitive, superstious mindset, would have had Biden's head hung by its hair from pole......which wouldn't have worked out very well.

Not true. The word settled is incorrect because the numbers of Spanish were very very very small. This was Indian territory. But of course large absurd claims for those lands were made. Anyone can claim anything under banner of the Pope of Rome (you can look that one up)  The fierce Apaches, Comanches and other Indians had the run of those lands. The Spanish cowered in their missions for the most part. Who finally subdued the Indians? The US Army.
