The Brief: George P. Calls Out "Ignorant Statements" on Hispanics
Texas Tribune ^ | 1/16/14 | John Reynolds

Posted on 02/07/2014 8:21:02 AM PST by jimbo123

Land commissioner candidate George P. Bush has some pointed words for fellow Republicans who denigrate Hispanics.

“If we're going to be successful and be considered credible in the Hispanic community, we’ve got to denounce some of the ignorant statements that are made about Hispanics and the contributions we make," he told the Tribune's Alexa Ura. His comments come on the heels of a controversial statement on the Denton County Republican Party's website that referred to the expected Democratic top of the ticket as “Abortion Barbie with Hispanic Sen. Leticia Van de Putte as her running mate.”

I agree.

At the same time, George P stay way way away from amnesty.

There is a good way to deal with hispanics, but not by giving away everything.

I do agree we need to watch the level of discourse.

That said, I like him so far.

Who's making 'ignorant statements' about hispanics?

No one.

Perhaps George meant 'illegal aliens'.

So, maybe he can name one 'ignorant statement' any named person has made about illegal aliens.

I'm growing to despise the Bush family.

“Hispanic Sen. Leticia Van de Putte”

How is that denigrating Hispanics? Granted, they should have just said Abortion Barbie, but calling someone Hispanic is not denigrating them.

Interesting that he has chosen to be a member of an “oppressed semi-race” rather than soaking up his white privilege.

Seems kind of odd to me that so many mixed race people choose the oppressed part. Its almost like there is some kind of advantage there.

You’re not getting the Bush-speak. “Opposing amnesty for illegals” = “ignorant statements about Hispanics”. That’s what W meant, that’s what Jeb means and that’s what Geo. P. means.

Ignorant statements or the truth?

Could we have some examples of such “ignorant” statements?

If they’re false, they they should be very very easy to disprove.

Perhaps it is meant to support he part of themselves that is seen as not being American. In truth they can and have a responsibility to learn and speak the English language. MO

In the earlier settling of immigrants, (all nations) it was their desire to speak English and understand it as they truly desired to be Americans and all the opportunity that comes with it.

I do agree we need to watch the level of discourse.

And what does that mean?

You'll notice that George P. didn't give any examples or clearly define what he meant, he just threw an open-ended statement out there with no clarification whatsoever.

So what do you mean by that statement of yours?

How does FreeRepublic need to "watch the level of discourse"?

Which he will -- IF he respects the views of LEGAL Hispanics. I've seen two polls of legal Hispanics that show them disposed against amnesty by a 2-to-1 margin (roughly 60-32).

And why not? They are American citizens first -- by virtue of being American for generations or investing the effort and expense of jumping thru all the legal immigration hoops. They don't want their citizenship cheapened any more than we Anglos do.

I do agree we need to watch the level of discourse.

However, what is ethnically objectionable about “Abortion Barbie with Hispanic Sen. Leticia Van de Putte as her running mate"?

I fail to understand the problem with this posting.

Leticia Van de Putte is Hispanic, is she not?

GP is building a straw man and knocking it down.

Opposing the legalization of illegal immigrants is not "denigrating Hispanics."

Of course, New World Order types like the Bushes don't care about any of it. Anything NWO types do is only about lining their pockets.

Exactly.

Which is why mischaracterizations of the motives of people who oppose illegal immigration as anti-hispanic bigots such as the Bush family is constantly spouting is so utterly loathsome. It drives otherwise friendly hispanic allies into the opposition's arms.

Anything insulting/degrading to persons of Hispanic ancestry does deserve to be called out.

This is all about the law. If somebody is breaking it, I really don’t care what their ethnic background is.

Who is making statements about hispanics who came to the US legally and are US citizens? No one I know of.

The oppositions is to the invasion of the US. The calls are for invaders to go home and stay there unless they go through the processes in place. They're the same calls we have for invaders from other countries. The only reasons the calls to end the invasion of the US seem to be directed mostly to hispanics is (1) there are more of them and (2) they make demands that we change our laws to accomodate them.

Wait until Hate Speech Laws are implemented.

The mere mention of the word “Hispanic” by a White person will be grounds for charges of racism and hate, knocks on the door at night — with arrests, heavy fines and jail time.

Look at what is going on in England, the country where the idea of Free Speech began —

Twitch: “Outrageous: Three British men arrested for ‘offensive’ anti-Islam comments after Woolwich murder”

Business Insider: “British police are arresting people in the middle of the night if they have made racist or anti-Muslim comments on Twitter”

Front Page Mag: “An 85-year-old woman has this afternoon been arrested after abuse was hurled at Muslims outside Gillingham Mosque. The pensioner was handcuffed and taken away in a van by officers”

Examiner: “Kevin Carroll, co-chairman of the patriotic British organization The English Defence League (EDL) was arrested by British police for a “hate speech” crime, as reported by The Independent (of London, England) on Jan. 14, 2013.

Carroll was arrested by Bedfordshire police after he penned a posting on his personal FaceBook page speaking out against the Muslim ritual slaughter of animals in preparation of the yearly Eid festivities.”

Culture News: “London police arrested American citizen Tony Miano (a 49-year-old retired sheriff and California chaplain) for publicly reading the Bible outside of the Wimbledon Tennis Championships.”

Soviet Union or England, the birthplace of Common Law and the Industrial Revolution and now a police state — and what the likes of Sotomayor and Obama are trying to implement here in the U.S.

All the best to you —

I think many don’t understand that right minded Americans don’t dislike Hispanics. Those here who are citizens, many for generations past, are well liked and respected, ditto those who are here with visas and work permits. It is only those who are here illegally that we want out of here.

“If we're going to be successful and be considered credible in the Hispanic community, we’ve got to denounce some of the ignorant statements that are made about Hispanics and the contributions we make,"

Excellent idea! Let's start with the ignorant statement, Diversity is Strength.

If the diversity is lawbreaking, unskilled, illegal, government benefits collecting Hispanics, we're better off deporting 20 million of them.

Rand Paul's immigration speech
...The Republican Party must embrace more legal immigration.

Unfortunately, like many of the major debates in Washington, immigration has become a stalemate-where both sides are imprisoned by their own rhetoric or attachment to sacred cows that prevent the possibility of a balanced solution.

Immigration Reform will not occur until Conservative Republicans, like myself, become part of the solution. I am here today to begin that conversation.

Let's start that conversation by acknowledging we aren't going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants.

If you wish to work, if you wish to live and work in America, then we will find a place for you...

This is where prudence, compassion and thrift all point us toward the same goal: bringing these workers out of the shadows and into being taxpaying members of society.

Imagine 12 million people who are already here coming out of the shadows to become new taxpayers.12 million more people assimilating into society. 12 million more people being productive contributors.

Rand Paul calls on conservatives to embrace immigration reform
Latinos, should be a natural constituency for the party, Paul argued, but "Republicans have pushed them away with harsh rhetoric over immigration." ...he would create a bipartisan panel to determine how many visas should be granted for workers already in the United States and those who might follow... [and the buried lead] "Imagine 12 million people who are already here coming out of the shadows to become new taxpayers...
