Hispanics To Obama: We Helped You, Now You Help Us [Hispanics Now 10% of Electorate]

Hispanics To Obama: We Helped You, Now You Help Us

By James Eng Hispanic voters, who were instrumental in putting Barack Obama back in the White House, now hope the president will work diligently in his second term to cross some big to-dos off their legislative wish list: jobs, affordable education, health care access and immigration reform.

Hispanics voted for Obama over Mitt Romney by a resounding 71 percent to 27 percent and may have put him over the top in several key swing states. The total number of potential Hispanic voters this year reached a record 23.7 million – up about 80 percent since 2000 – and Hispanics now compose about 10 percent of the total electorate, according to the Pew Hispanic Center.

“The Latino electorate arrived Tuesday, there’s no question about it,” said Rafael Collazo, director of political campaigns for the National Council of La Raza. The organization, which bills itself as the largest national Hispanic civil rights and advocacy organization in the United States, says it helped register more than 90,000 new Hispanic voters this year.

“States like Florida, Colorado, Nevada, Pennsylvania, even Ohio -- the Latino vote was a net gain for the preferred candidate and was the deciding factor or at least very, very close to being the decisive factor,” Collazo told NBC News.

"The Latino giant is wide awake, cranky and is taking names,” labor leader Eliseo Medina, of the Service Employees International Union, told NBC Latino.

Keep an eye on this. For decades blacks have been the coddled minority in the Democratic Party. Now Latinos are speaking up and demanding their fair share. There’s only so much of the pie for Democrats to spread around; we could see Latinos and Blacks in open warfare over the next four years. Fire up the popcorn!

You know, this kind of crap makes me physically ill. We are supposed to be one country and one people, not a collection of different lobby groups, separately begging for goodies from the federal pig trough.

This pandering to special interest groups needs to be ripped out by the roots. (And I know it, you don’t need to tell me: it will never happen in my lifetime. Unless the country is razed and rebuilt from the basement up....)

They are already in open warfare between adjoining neighborhoods and the hispanics recognize the value in genocide for their future.

TRANSLATION: Amnesty and open borders.

It's a huge issue. We don't have a southern boarder anymore.

Rush had an idea that just might work, though I wish we didn't have to take this route:

Amnesty, with a signed, legal agreement that says illegals who are given amnesty cannot vote for 25 years, and stiff penalties for those who do (maybe a few years in prison).
This would guarantee that this is not a political move. This is a compassionate move, like the liberals claim it's suppose to be. Doing it this way would prove the motives are NOT political, and the illegals would NOT be beholden to any political party in general afterwords.

The left would never go along with it, though. It's not the illegals or their plight the left is really interested in. It's their votes, and ONLY their votes that really matter.

So, it would never work, but trying it would expose the liberals for who they really are and what they really value.

The Catholics need to get to these Hispanics who voted for Obama. They believed the lamestream media instead of Paul Ryan. Check out Ryan's take on subsidiarity (smallest government takes care of it.) and solidarity (common sense.)

“...Unless the country is razed...”

That may very well come true.

The so-called Hispanic ‘leaders’ are Marxists who desire the destruction of the United States. Pandering is how government and business is regularly done south of the border. This leads to balkanization of the nation and hateful grudges. Thus the United States can be ripped apart from the inside.

The meme of how these are decent, hard working people just looking to improove their family’s lot in life is machine gunned to shreds by these kinds of demands.

Ooh! Could you tell me more, or provide links.

I grew up in SOCAL and have friends whose parents or ancestors came from Mexico. Hispanics are not monolithic in their political beliefs but today find themselves being sandbagged by Hispanic activists who are nothing more than Marxist thugs.

I dated a Serbian woman who confirmed that that is exactly what will happen. She said balkanization, followed by warfare and genocide, followed by the loss of a huge chunk of the country through independence for the invaders.

In the end, its likely that the traitors who do this, will be handed over to their "friends" in the new nation.

Your point is apt. Obama cannot balance water on both shoulders, ethnically, and still have anything to offer the White ideologues in Academia & the Media, who want to see their Jacobin/Marxist/Fabian day dreams, realized.

This needs to be handled with finesse, but it may yet help the Left snatch what they really deserve, from their apparent triumph over history, reason & human decency.

And see Leftwing Chickens Coming Home.

Exactly!!! Why doesn’t the GOP just adopt all of the Democratic policies? Then we can become one party with an all inclusive tent headed by a dictator!

Just look up gang genocide in LA. I saw a speech from Ted Hayes a year or so back where he was talking about the fact that the Hispanic gangs are cleansing entire neighborhoods through targeted arson, murder, rape etc.

I’m hearing similar things out the hood in the small city near me.

Actually the current GOP is a great example of what happens with Amnesty.

The marxists invaded the democrat party and we allowed and even encouraged the democrats to flee across the border to the GOP. Now those former democrats are feeling homesick for the old country but don’t have the stones to go back so they’re remaking the GOP in their own image. The GOP became balkanized and now a bloody civil war is brewing within it.

Uh-huh, yeah I know that, too.

This is planned, you know? Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez along with Obama have this all planned out - how to destroy the U.S.A., and get a big chunk of land in the bargain. These people are terrorists, period, and the drug Cartels are a huge part of it.

Running guns to Hispanics in the southwest and to Al Qaida in the Middle East. Obama is public enemy number 1.

This will also be our opportunity to seceed. Perhaps we should make some overtures to them, they can have amnesty with democrats, or balkanization with us.

It would never get that far. The left only wants their votes. No votes, they'd be sent back to where they came from over night, so the democrats could use their welfare cards to buy votes from some other manufactured voting block.

"The Latino giant is wide awake,cranky and is taking names," labor leader Eliseo Medina.....

A few thoughts on my part here. Thousands and thousands of persons from Europe and other lands seek entry legally to the United States. There is an enormous backlog. Persons will never be admitted, no matter what qualifications they may claim. This is, of course the absolute right of a sovereign nation as is the United States and it is a matter of it's choice.

Millions of persons have broken the law of American sovereign state. Their own sovereign state, Mexico, exacts ruthless control of it's borders. Ask Guatemala. Now by breaking the law and with it many other local laws, they enable subversives to threaten and cajole. Now there is a word for it.

Ochlocracy
A political system in which the mob is the source of control;government by the masses. (Thesaurus dictionary).

In the common language it is simply:
Mobocracy.

I go farther. No citizenship status unless return to home country and apply legally, otherwise, if they stay here, Legal residence, no voting, for the rest of their life, no citizenship conferred. They can be deported if a criminal and would have to renew yearly to keep “legal resident status”. NO BENEFITS. Benefits for citizens only. Votes for Citizens only.

Should NOT be rewarded with full citizenship for committing Civil and Felonious infractions (illegal entry, id fraud, id theft, income tax evasion, etc)

All these illegal immigrant children and adults 18+ have Violated the Selective Service law by not registering. (i know, males only, AND if your above 26, if you lived here during your 18-26 age, you STILL are subjected to penalties for not registering, IT’S THE LAW)

Conveniently the LIBS are ignoring this infraction that ALL MALE Citizens (95%) comply with or no FED jobs, loans, Benefits.

They want to be American Citizens so badly they can sign up for Selective Service and Women as well as Men, can join the Military and get their citizenship that way. They don’t want to work for it. Want Citizenship conferred on them for breaking laws and not following rules. Hell NO!

Yes, I know all about that. I grew up in northern New Mexico, where gringos were the minority, and the Hispanics/Chicanos/Latinos/whatever-they-are-going-by-now were the majority. If you didn't speak or understand Spanish, or have a Spanish surname, you were automatically out in the cold. A lot of them carried an inheirited grudge against whites/Gringos (who knows from what; it wasn't repression, as many had been in northern NM since the 1700s and they owned most of the land and outnumbered all other "races").

I had a friend who's father was killed in a "hunting accident" when I was in high school. What actually happened was that he was prey to a couple of Chicano criminals. He had the bad luck to have the wrong county on his car license plate in the wrong place at the wrong time while out deer hunting alone (our state license plates used to have a county designation, which could be the source of a lot of trouble if you were around the wrong people). It was purely a racist hit for absolutely no other reason than he was white and from a "wrong" county. The killers didn't even know him, and were never punished. "Racist" altercations (mostly less violent) happened all the time back then; it was the norm for us Gringos. There were just parts of Rio Arriba county, Santa Fe, and Albuquerque that you didn't go to at night and on weekends, especially alone, if you were white.

La Raza was real popular back then, and still is, apparently. It used to be just a Communist front organization, and tended to draw in Hispanics that felt "repressed." The activists tended to preach a "native Americano" sort of communism/socialism, and the youngsters swallowed it hook/line/sinker. If that is still going on (I am in the "red" state of Oklahoma now and don't see much of that anymore), we are in for a rough ride on a lot of fronts in a lot of places close to home...

Latinos have a sense of “ethnic/racial” pride (what does “La Raza” translate to?), and more importantly, have no “white guilt”.

In a contest between Latinos and blacks, blacks will lose and lose badly.
