I live with a zillion latinos.
The Mexican Americans can spot a mojado in a second. The mojados can tell a Mexican from a Guatemalan from an El Salvadoran. It’s accent, it’s look, it’s behavior. Americans can’t easily tell them apart so they think they’re all the same.
The idea that latinos are one big happy family and will all vote for each other is a story that only the idiots running the GOP believe, because those fools think that they can out-pander the Democrats. Well that’s one more reason why the GOP is known as the Stupid Party.
The latinos who have been pouring into the US courtesy of Open Borders fanatics like Dubya have been overwhelmingly poor, and they vote for the party offering them most free stuff.
Is that more than a brazilian?
“The idea that latinos are one big happy family and will all vote for each other is a story that only the idiots running the GOP believe...”
You are correct. There are many divisions among them. I personally know a good number who are quite conservative. There are also those who liked Obama at first but who are very unhappy with him now.
I have noticed a difference also regarding where in the U.S. these Hispanics are found. La Raza has been most active historically in California and in the western states and a bit in the Chicago area. You can thank the Chicano Movement and community activist (think Marxism primarily) professors on university campuses for that.
Marco Rubio certainly does NOT espouse the radical goals of La Raza. To a very great extent, I admire what Rubio stands for. He IS amazingly articulate in both English and Spanish, seems to have a good spiritual base, and he LOVES this nation and understands the principles of freedom on which it is based.
The influx of illegals (there ARE Latinos who have come here legally) occurred not just because of those who are Open Borders fanatics. In a sense, we are all responsible because our businesses were happy to get them, people liked hard-working gardeners, construction workers, and housekeepers, etc. It’s been going on for years.
