Marco Rubio Spokesman Compares Illegal Aliens to Slaves
Stand With Arizona ^ | 04-22-2013 | John Hill

Posted on 04/22/2013 5:08:24 PM PDT by montag813

Bipartisan Group Of Senators Announce Major Agreement On Immigration Reform

As his lies are being exposed daily, Marco and his team are losing their heads.

-

The panic among the amnesty pimps has reached hysterical proportions.

As conservatives increasingly discover how the 'Gang of Eight' amnesty bill would be an abject disaster for America, and also realize how Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) has lied to them about its provisions, Rubio and his team have reacted with La Raza talking points, and now disgraceful race-baiting.

Case in point, Rubio's spokesperson Alex Conant - in a Twitter exchange with Washington Examiner columnist Conn Carroll, R- said, “We haven’t had a cohort of people living permanently in US without full rights of citizenship since slavery.”

alex_conant_tweet

Of course, to follow Conant's absurd and offensive comment, he doesn't only refer to illegal aliens. He’s also talking about any non-citizen who lives in this country permanently, including millions of Green Card holders. And as Carroll noted, if illegals are modern slaves, then...

conn_tweet

Exactly.

Moreover, to illustrate its absurdity, if Conant saying that illegal aliens who don't become citizens are "slaves", then how does he characterize the 64% of 3.5 million illegal aliens who received amnesty in 1986 who never bothered to apply for citizenship? Are they keeping themselves in slavery?

Of course there is no comparison between slaves, who were brought and kept here against their will, with foreign nations who came here and stay here by choice. It is disgraceful to attack (soon to be former) allies by suggesting their insistence on enforcing our laws makes them racists, and insulting to minimize the harsh experience of millions of Black Americans by comparing them to border crossers and tourist visa violators.

Get used to it folks. As our side continues to hammer the amnesty pimps with inconvenient facts that undermine their lies, they will continue to become more unhinged. It is just disgraceful to see how Rubio is throwing away the credibility he spent 4 years to earn among conservatives, just to be Chuck Schumer's messenger boy.

Slaves aren't free to go home.

Illegals are.

Slaves were brought here against their will. The illegals have invaded us and now want sympathy because they claim they have no rights and Rubio here is agreeing with them.

Marco Rubio’s career as a Senator is going to come to a close next election. He is jus committing political suicide.

Yes, Democrats supported slavery just like they support illegals.

So they were sold into servitude by their own people to muslims who then re sold them to work for others without hope or pay? Is there any better way to foster hatred of Hispanics by Blacks than to equate what the Blacks went through to Mexicans and Central Americans invading our country by illegally crossing our boarders? Or by our government freely giving to the illegals that which the Blacks have had to fight for? The blacks need to wake up, this is both parties telling them they are old news!

We make Rome look civilized because those that were not citizens were slaves to those that were citizens. No if’s, and’s, or Butts. (Guess I should have spelled that “Buts” but the result would effectively be the same.

Those who have pointed out his Soros connection are more believable by the day.

Rubio knows what to say and is well coached enough to be believable.

Clint did us a favor by overshadowing Rubio's speech at the GOPe's elect Romney convention.

Rubio has it backwards...

The tax payer is the slave to the extent that they forfeit their wages for the use of the government. The tax payer is the one being deprived of the fruits of their labor on penalty of imprisonment.

So 64% of the 1986 illegals who got amnesty never applied for citizenship. I thought everyone who came to the United States wanted to participate in our Consitutional Republic. I thought they were driven by a great admiration for our way of life and love of freedom. You mean they may have been thinking about their stomachs instead of their spirits yearning to breathe free?

I hear people say there are jobs Americans won't do.

I say that is crap. If people get hungry enough and poor enough, there isn't a job they won't do. The problem is, you can get money from the government, and that changes the dynamic.

Who would work for a lawn service or as a bus boy when you can get money handed to you?

I can safely say that if I need to buy food and heating, I will do any work that will pay a wage rather than stand by a road with a cardboard sign asking people to give me money.

I will clean filthy urinals or porta-potties. I will pick up sodden cigarette butts with my bare fingers. I swear to God I will do those things, if am physically able, before I will stand by a road and beg with a sign.

Those people should be ashamed of themselves, buy they are beyond that. Especially up here in Massachusetts, I think the town government (Cambridge, for example) actually encourages and organizes the begging. I am not kidding.

They should be damned ashamed. But I will say this: Whenever I see someone, dressed in clothes that are clean, shoes with no holes and no evident disability walking up and down asking for money, I think of this guy below:

I have seen this guy over the years in his wheelchair, usually at the corner of Newbury Street near the Boston Common.

He has a cooler full of soda that someone has stocked for him and a money box. Notice no lock on it.

If you want a soda, you put your money in the slot, and with his one arm that can barely move, he manages to reach over and lit the lid on the cooler. You grab a soda.

I asked him if I could take his picture and post it. He couldn't talked, but nodded his head yes.

When I see a guy like this, providing a service, and making money, however little, I want to kick one of those cardboard sign begging dummies in the rear end.

Citizenship isn’t as valuable as the ability to make money.

Wow, this thread really touched a nerve with me. I was at work this weekend, I have been working 60-80 hr weeks since the beginning of December, and it is wearing me down to a nub. But while I was at work, I had the rare experience of seeing someone else in that area on the weekend. When she walked by, she said casually "Hello, fellow slave." I was honestly dumbfounded at my reaction to that comment: I couldn't say anything, but the first thing into my mind before I saw her disappear past my doorway was "What the Hell? I'm not a slave! My employer PAYS ME MONEY to do a job. I am lucky as hell..."

I almost had to laugh at myself because I know she was just trying to be sociable and make a clever comment, but it hit me completely wrong, and it did it so quickly it was like falling through ice on a pond.

Well, it is true that American history is chock full of people who came here for the sole purpose of making money.

I kind of like the fact that there was, at one time, so much freedom that we couldn’t keep out people who came here to make a living and get ahead in life.

Sure, lots of people came due to hunger, repression, etc, but a lot of people made a choice to come here not because someone was going to take care of them, but because they would be free to take care of themselves.

I find that very powerful and compelling.

America was a great country long before we became a rich nation.

One of the metrics we can assess this country contrasted to others is... how many other countries do people line up to get into compared to the USA?

How many of those commie idiots complain about the country they are immigrating to?

It makes me ill to hear immigrants (legal or illegal) bad mouthing this country and lifting up their own. It should be 180 degrees in reverse, and if it isn’t, they shouldn’t be allowed into this freeping country.

Well indentured servitude can be traced back to Europe possibly England first, but slavery? look to the African continent for the earliest record? So if you are trying to lay both Slavery and indentured servitude at the feet of Europeans, AKA Caucasians you you’ll have a little problem.

That’s not the point I was trying to emphasize here. Rubio’s press guy implied not giving citizenship to those here illegally created a situation akin to the days of slavery. I was trying to point out that if illegals were not hired in the first place in opposition to law this situation would not exist. It is not nor should be the guilt trip of citizens & tax payers.

“Marco Rubio Spokesman Compares Illegal Aliens to Slaves”

Oh, why not! I once compared Rubio to a patriotic American. Just goes to show you that we’re all wrong once in a while.

As my daddy said, “Only a fool never changes his mind”.

He’s got it wrong.

It’s taxpayers he should be comparing to slaves.

Or maybe we are horses, carrying illegals and other moochers on our backs.

By creating upwards of 40 million new dim voters and who is going to pay for these illegals? You do know they are eligible for obamacare and government vouchers to pay for the premiums? 90 million will be on food stamps... another 20 million obamaphones... section 8 housing... headstart... daycare... earned income tax credit... school lunches etc etc etc.

No, they’re not like “slaves,” they can go home any time they want to.

They are, however, like invaders.
