RUSH: This is Salvador in Wichita, Texas. Great to have you on the program. Hi.
CALLER: Hi, Rush. It's a pleasure and an incredible honor to be able to talk to you.
RUSH: Great to have you on the program, Salvador.
CALLER: Thank you. I'm sorry if I'm a little nervous.
RUSH: Oh, you don't sound nervous at all.
CALLER: Well, thank you very much. I was born in Mexico and I came to this country 21 years ago. I've been listening to you for 15 years.
RUSH: Thank you very much.
CALLER: Well, thank you, because you have inspired and you have really pushed forward me and my entire family. I really appreciate it.
RUSH: Wait a minute, I'm confused. Because you should be voting Democrat because of me.
RUSH: I mean, if everything I'm hearing this week is right, I'm the reason people like you are not voting Republican.
CALLER: Well, unfortunately that was the main reason for my call, that unfortunately the majority of the Mexican people that come over to the United States, they're already marginalized in their own country. They don't have very much education and they believe that the government is the only source of wealth.
RUSH: There you have it! There you have it!
RUSH: This is exactly right. I'm so glad you've called. We've got an academic study and report by one of our scholars here, Heather Mac Donald at the Manhattan Institute. She's researched it, and she says that. She says that 75% of the Hispanic vote for the Democrat Party has nothing to do with immigration policy. It's all about their view that government is the source of good economics, wealth, things, stuff, what have you.
CALLER: It is, Rush.
RUSH: And you're just confirming it.
CALLER: Yeah. It is a tragedy, because all their potential, all their gifts, are just totally shut down. They cannot produce. If I would have listened to the Democrat Party when I came into this country, I would not be where I am today.
CALLER: Thank God I've been able to grow.
CALLER: Because they treat you as a lower class. They make you believe that they can providing things for you. But in the end, you give your dignity to them instead of keeping it.
RUSH: What they do is treat you as though you don't have the ability to do good things for yourself.
RUSH: They treat you as though you're incompetent of getting through life without them.
CALLER: Absolutely. That's totally true. And every conservative that I've talked to, they treat me as a person. They don't see me as a Mexican. They don't see the color of the skin. They're interested in my character, and I'm interested in their character. I don't see them as white, green, blue, whatever it is.
RUSH: That's exactly right. Well, you're the wrong kind of immigrant.
RUSH: You're not the kind of immigrant the Democrats are looking for.
CALLER: And in different ways, I've been told that. Certainly I'm told I'm not Hispanic enough. I'm not holding to my culture.
RUSH: Yeah, I know. And there are African-Americans who are told that they're not authentically black, either, if they're not voting for Democrats.
CALLER: And they're wrong.
RUSH: If they get grades that are too good, they're traitors.
CALLER: Yeah. And it saddened me so much because I've seen this movie before, you know? That's the way Mexico is. They just have to look at how Mexico is today. There are so many resources there. There's a lot of people that could produce things but the mentality is not there, and the government will not allow it to happen.
RUSH: Well, it's the nature of tyranny everywhere.
CALLER: That's exactly what's happening here.
RUSH: I mean, tyranny, by definition, has to strip people of their dignity. It has to. It has to strip people of their individuality and of their liberty. That's exactly what tyranny does. And it does it under the guise of compassion. It does it under the guise of helping and protecting people against these evil forces out there who hate them and discriminate against them, because they're bigots and racists and so forth.
Salvador, I'm glad you called. I could not be happier. I really thank you, 'cause that's exactly right, folks. He's just nailed it. And that's why, that's why the Democrats want amnesty, and that's why Hispanics vote for the Democrat Party. They arrive here believing that government's the source of wealth. Government's where it comes from. Government apportions wealth, and your take depends on how much you can learn the system.
There's a reason, folks, that the Obama administration ran ads on Mexican soap operas on radio advertising food stamps. When you can import a socialist, you're ahead of the game.
1) I heard Rush say that he is considering producing a Spanish version of his show. YES! He should. I used to have a Costa Rican worker who was very conservative and was a proud new citizen. She would listen to the news while she worked and we would discuss it in Spanglish as I drove her home. Although she was conservative, she got entirely the wrong impression from Spanish radio and Spanish TV as to what had happened during certain events.
2) I forgot my other point! LOL.
all the mexicans vote republican and proud of it. born here and in their 60,s
excuse please..all the mexicans i know vote repupblican
2) Now I remember. I was on a tour to China in 1983. There was a Mexican family on the same tour, and the father of the family (who was a wealthy industrialist) shed tears over the work that he saw the Chinese doing. (We were required to tour Chinese factories for the privilege of touring the country in those days.) According to the Mexican, there are millions of his countrymen who could do this work but the government just throws roadblocks in their way.
I’m an American of 100% Mexican descent. I was born here, I’m in my 40’s. I’ve never voted for a democrat in my life and I have never missed an election.
Why has a state that has been 1/2 Mexican been able to resist leftism with a huge Mexican population if the Republican platform is so abrasive to other cultures?
It's because that is not true. What has changed is the educational system and the popular culture who now tells these Mexican immigrants that they are victims of a white man, the R party, conservatism, etc. (among other things they are now learning from the left)
er a state that is 1/3 Mexican. typo
You are a 100% American of Mexican descent.
Not Mexican but an immigrant from South American country of Bolivia and I am 100% tea party.
Amen. Its not so much about "immigration" - its that most Latinos who come to the USA are pickled in class-warfare rhetoric from their own societies and Gov'ts of their home countries. This doesn't disappear very quickly in the next generation either.
Been there and done.......................................................................................................................something or other, I forgot what.
You and people like you, are me and people just like me.
The Republican party does not know we exist.
I’m white. You’re brown. We’re bothers on the inside, and each of the political parties in the United States insult us both.
Couldn’t be happier to have you one my side, and to be on yours.
same with my friends
Mexico is one of the most racist societies you can imagine. Think about it. What do you see when you see Mexican politicians, or media personalities (including those amazingly hot women they sprinkle all over their news programs on Telemundo or Univision, not to mention the telenovela actresses)? They’re all pure Caucasian. They’re descended from the Spaniards that settled the country at various times.
Now look around at the (possible) illegals in your neighborhood hanging around outside Home Depot or slinging sod on a landscaping crew. They’re Indians. They’re descended from the native Indians of the country. The Spanish-descended Mexicans have never stopped treating the Indios like crap. They are Mexico’s permanent underclass, poorly-educated and low on the totem pole of society.
So it’s a huge win for the Mexican elites if we don’t solve illegal immigration by closing the border. They get to “encourage” their hard-working but uneducated and potentially troublesome lower class to head north. And then they become our problem, not Carlos Slim’s or Felipe Calderon’s.
Much of Latin America consists of the Creole minority governing a mestizo or native majority; it is the only way things work. I believe Bolivia has a “native” president, but they can also sell drugs instead of having a real functioning economy.
Mexico stands out as the only country where natives played an active role in the independence movement in the early 19th century; the others were more like the US (with Spaniards here revolting against Spaniards over there). In the US our native population played an insignificant role in the revolution; those that did fight were on both sides, rather than only supporting independence.
It apparently doesn’t disappear quickly after five generations either. Those with out the education and otherwise to succeed on their own are unlikely to support an end to the government gravy train that they, their families, and their ethnicity are dependent upon.
Moose4 makes some good points. ACCURATELY true. I dressed up some of my white Mexican girls in Indian dress and sent them to hotels in Mexico City and they were told, WE HAVE NO ROOM. I am white anglo, and showed up and they asked me how many rooms I want. BUT...but.. Mexicans aren’t so much racist as they are class distinctionists. If you got money, the darkness of skin lightens up easily.
I’ve been to many villages in Mexico and heard so MANY people say, WELL, THE REASON WE’RE SO POOR, IS THAT THE GOV’T DOESN’T HELP US”. Many Mexicans honestly do consider that the source of wealth if gov’t. How could Mexican politicians end up with millions and millions of dollars in Swiss accounts on just their salary. They are taking bribes.
I know plenty of American-Americans from Mexico. They are not loser peasants looking for a piece of bread; they are independent and virturous movers.
They need to combine efforts to educate the peasants from Mexico or they will live like they did in Mexico and we will all suffer.
