La Raza's motto is "For the Race, everything. Outside the Race, nothing."
If what you say is true I'd like to get the President on record as to his position on their motto. This whole, "For the Race", sounds too close to Al Queda which translates into "The Base".
"for those who haven't heard...
Congressman J.D. Hayworth went to the WH to speak to GWB about the illegal immigration problem. He was approached by Karl Rove who said to the congressman "you just have a problem with brown people.""
Is there a link for this, was it on talk radio, etc.?
I'm a big Hayworth fan and deeply disturbed about Rove's La Raza appearance, but I have trouble believing Rove could be that...well, it's hard to come up with a descriptive word if Rove actually said that, it shows a total obtuseness about the issues, and it's slanderous to boot.
I don't know of a link
I was listening to an interview with Hayworth on the radio a couple of weeks ago when he told this story.
and if I'm not mistaken, Hayworth repeated the same story on FOX News in another interview.
you might check his website and/or call his office.
" but I have trouble believing Rove could be that...well, it's hard to come up with a descriptive word?"
how 'bout "race baiter?"
ya see anyone who is for immigration law enforcement is a racist bigot!
didn't you know that? LOL
Thanks for the additional info. If J.D. said it in public, then I'm going to assume Rove really said it. ?!?!
Rove wouldn't visit the KKK or any other separatist/supremacist group; it's quite disturbing that the administration, in the name of being P.C. and courting Hispanic voters, would look the other way at La Raza's motto ("For the Race, everything; for others, nothing") and their advocacy of "reconquista."
As someone who also lives in So. CA, I just don't understand the administration's blindness when it comes to immigration and the borders. You'd think someone who has done such a great job with the War on Terror would at least "get" the security angle...
This makes me neither a bigot nor racist.
"I just don't understand the administration's blindness when it comes to immigration and the borders."
it's all about money & thinking that by NOT enforcing the immigration laws & deporting illegals makes Hispanics more likely to vote for GOP candidates(another miscalculation since Hispanic Americans are the most outraged by illegals taking jobs away from them and ruining their neighborhoods)
and large companies(GOP contributors) make HUGE profits from illegals so they have not been fined either.
while WE pay on the back end.
Do you really think it might happen?
""But catch the featured speaker in Tuesday's finale: Karl Rove. Karl Rove!!? Karl Rove.""
What's the surprise? Rove needs to keep the Democrats fearful that Hispanics support Amnesty plus new worker programs.
Plus he gets to tell Bush about the wonderful applause he received which proves Hispanics support hims immigration position as substitution for polls that show the opposite.
Rove is listed on the program as "invited" so we don't know if he has confirmed or not.
If he does show up and speak, it would be VERY interesting to say the least.
I checked your source, and Rove will not be the featured speaker at the 'finale'.
It appears he will be on a panel at the Tuesday luncheon with 3 others, one being Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.
I agree, it will be interesting.
