Paul Ryan: Mitt Romney's VP Pick Used Racist Term In 2011(projectile vomit alert)
examiner ^ | AUGUST 12, 2012 | ZENOPHON ABRAHAM

Posted on 08/12/2012 6:36:23 PM PDT by barmag25

U.S.Congressman Paul Ryan might be a numbers guy, but he's also has no problem using racist terms where illegal immigration is the subject.

Rep. Paul Ryan (Wisconsin) was named to be the vice presidential running mate for GOP Presidential Nominee, Governor Mitt Romney. Ryan, the 1st District Wisconsin congressman, has carved a name for himself as a "budget hawk," proposing a radical alteration in the US Budget that would cut entitlement programs to dramatically low levels. But 'Paul Ryan Budget Guy' is only part of the story of who Rep. Ryan really is. The other side of him shows a man who welcomes conservative views, even to the point of racism, but shouts down anyone who dissents with that point of view.

Oh, so only non-whites are prone to crossing borders illegally and having babies there. I guess that’s why they say ‘anchor baby’ is a racist term.

How about “illegal”? That’s one that is racist and politically incorrect ;-)

They’ve got nothing on Ryan and they know it.

Obunghole’s Regime reeks of corruption and communism. The most they can do is to try and tear Ryan down to their level.

I've got to read all the way to the end to figure out that the supposedly racist term was "anchor baby" and that Ryan didn't even use the term.

All he said was 'I agree' to the logic of a citizen making a logical statement.

Here's news to the nimrod writer: America can't provide unlimited benefits for anybody and everybody who manages to sneak across our border even if they manage to pop out a baby on our side of the border.

That ain't racism, that's fact. If you can't control the border, you can't control who is coming in to empty the public treasury and, by extension, you can't control the budget.

Why is that so damn hard to figure out?

I really have no desire to open that link and have any more of that tripe be in my view.

I guess the gist though, (from the ‘Anchor Baby’) is what they are considering Racist.

Guess that is like calling me a sexist and saying I want to hold women back because I don’t go along with women on the front lines - or preplanned combat situations. If they should happen to be in the rear (I still don’t like it) and get caught up in something, yes by all means protect yourself etc....

Well that’s it for me, there is NO WAY I’ll ever vote for such a racist, using the term a***** b***. Really, the AB word coming from his mouth! lol

OTOH, this means that whenever a conservative uses that term, the press will scream and moan- taking rational discussion of the illegal immigrant problem off the table.

One problem with Romney picking Ryan is that thee progs already have a thick oppo file on Ryan, intensified since The Ryan Budget came out.

This blogger thinks anchor babies aren’t real?

And because they “are not real” it’s racist?

How convoluted is that!

I don’t know if we are allowed to use the term “illegal” anymore.

Definitely you cannot say “illegal alien” without being accused of racism and xenophobia by the left.

I think “illegal immigrant” is still okay to say. However, the preferred term by the politically correct crowd is “undocumented immigrant”.

The politically correct terms keep changing. At one time, the homosexual community used the term “sexual preference”. But they don’t like that term anymore because the idea of “preference” suggests that there is choice in the matter. And the politically correct crowd on homosexuality is that it is not a choice, thus, we have to allow homosexual marriage, among other homosexual related policies.

“Colored people” used to be okay, but now that is racist. However, “people of color”, rather than “colored people” is considered okay.

Hard to keep up with the politically correct language.

Libs often object to the term “illegal alien” because they say Mexicans and other illegal aliens don’t come from outer space. Words can have more than one meaning, libtards.

The language of the 14th Amendment was intended to clarify the question as to whether the children of freed slaves were in fact, citizens. It was never the intention that the amendment apply to alien children.

In 1866, Senator Jacob Howard wrote with regard to the 14th amendment:

"Every person born within the limits of the United States, and subject to their jurisdiction, is by virtue of natural law and national law a citizen of the United States. This will not, of course, include persons born in the United States who are foreigners, aliens, who belong to the families of ambassadors or foreign ministers accredited to the Government of the United States, but will include every other class of persons. It settles the great question of citizenship and removes all doubt as to what persons are or are not citizens of the United States. This has long been a great desideratum in the jurisprudence and legislation of this country."

The bane here is common sense. It dictated that if the mother and child were not eligible, they were both subject to the rule of the mother's native state. If the writer disapproves of the descriptive term; 'anchor baby', perhaps the effective term; 'jackpot baby', is more to his liking.

Anchor Babies Is A Racist Term

The term "anchor baby" is not racist, since it can be applied to babies of all races born to non-U.S. citizen mothers who give birth in the United States.

Also, "Mexican" is not a race.

Also, Paul Ryan did not use the term.

Also, this is just too stupid for words.

I thought ‘anchor baby’ was a term which described the reason
some young men left their hometowns suddenly to join the navy
back in the days when the circumstance of a women’s preg-
nancy meant something to most people. ; )

I do wonder why the term is necessarily racist. Would not a
white Irish “immigrant” woman’s infant born in the US also be
referred to as an anchor baby?

Well, if a woman intentionally has an anchor baby, what does she think in her head?

“Hey, eef I hab dis baby in thee US, then eet weel allow me to stay.”

That’s too long to say. But is it racist, since it is her own thought? Hey, I know! Let’s call it an “anchor baby!”

Just paraphrasing her thoughts.
