Skip to comments.Coulter: If the GOP is this stupid, it deserves to die
Posted on 06/12/2013 6:42:51 PM PDT by markomalley
Democrats terrify Hispanics into thinking theyll be lynched if they vote for Republicans, and then turn around and taunt Republicans for not winning a majority of the Hispanic vote.
This line of attack has real resonance with our stupidest Republicans. (Proposed Republican primary targets: Sens. Kelly Ayotte, Jeff Flake, Lindsey Graham and Marco Rubio.) Which explains why Republicans are devoting all their energy to slightly increasing their share of the Hispanic vote while alienating everyone else in America.
It must be fun for liberals to manipulate Republicans into focusing on hopeless causes. Why dont Democrats waste their time trying to win the votes of gun owners?
As journalist Steve Sailer recently pointed out, the Hispanic vote terrifying Republicans isnt that big. It actually declined in 2012. The Census Bureau finally released the real voter turnout numbers from the last election, and the Hispanic vote came in at only 8.4 percent of the electorate not the 10 percent claimed by the pro-amnesty crowd.
The sleeping giant of the last election wasnt Hispanics; it was elderly black women, terrified of media claims that Republicans were trying to suppress the black vote and determined to keep the first African-American president in the White House.
Contrary to everyones expectations, 10 percent more blacks voted in 2012 compared to 2008, even beating white voters, the usual turnout champions. Eligible black voters turned out at rate of 66.2 percent, compared to 64.1 percent of eligible white voters. Only 48 percent of all eligible Hispanic voters went to the polls.
No one saw this coming, which is probably why Gallup had Romney up by 5 points before Hurricane Sandy hit, and up by 1 point in its last pre-election poll after the hurricane.
Only two groups voted in larger numbers in 2012 compared to 2008: blacks aged 45-64, and blacks over the age of 65 mostly elderly black women.
In raw numbers, nearly twice as many blacks voted as Hispanics, and nine times as many whites voted as Hispanics. (Ninety-eight million whites, 18 million blacks and 11 million Hispanics.)
As Byron York has shown, even if Mitt Romney had won 70 percent of the Hispanic vote, he still would have lost. No Republican presidential candidate in at least 50 years has won even half of the Hispanic vote.
In the presidential election immediately after Reagan signed an amnesty bill in 1986, the Republican share of the Hispanic vote actually declined from 37 percent to 30 percent and that was in a landslide election for the GOP. Combined, the two Bush presidents averaged 32.5 percent of the Hispanic vote and they have Hispanics in their family Christmas cards.
John McCain, the nations leading amnesty proponent, won only 31 percent of the Hispanic vote, not much more than anti-amnesty Romneys 27 percent.
Amnesty is a gift to employers, not employees.
The (pro-amnesty) Pew Research Hispanic Center has produced poll after poll showing that Hispanics dont care about amnesty. In a poll last fall, Hispanic voters said they cared more about education, jobs and health care than immigration. They even care more about the federal budget deficit than immigration! (To put that in perspective, the next item on their list of concerns was scratchy towels.)
Also, note that Pew asked about immigration, not amnesty. Those Hispanics who said they cared about immigration might care about it the way I care about it by supporting a fence and E-Verify.
Who convinced Republicans that Hispanic wages arent low enough and what they really need is an influx of low-wage workers competing for their jobs?
Maybe the greedy businessmen now running the Republican Party should talk with their Hispanic maids sometime. Ask Juanita if shed like to have seven new immigrants competing with her for the opportunity to clean other peoples houses, so that her wages can be dropped from $20 an hour to $10 an hour.
A wise Latina, A.J. Delgado, recently explained on Mediaite.com why amnesty wont win Republicans the Hispanic vote even if they get credit for it. Her very first argument was: Latinos will resent the added competition for jobs.
But rich businessmen dont care. Big Republican donors and their campaign consultants just want to make money. They dont care about Hispanics, and they certainly dont care what happens to the country. If the country is hurt, I dont care, as long as I am doing better! This is the very definition of treason.
Hispanic voters are a small portion of the electorate. They dont want amnesty, and theyre hopeless Democrats. So Republicans have decided the path to victory is to flood the country with lots more of them!
Its as if Republicans convinced Democrats to fixate on banning birth control to win more pro-life voters. This would be great for Republicans because Democrats will never win a majority of pro-life voters, and about as many pro-lifers care about birth control as Hispanics care about amnesty.
But that still wouldnt be as idiotic as what Republicans are doing because, according to Gallup, pro-lifers are nearly half of the electorate. Hispanics are only 8.4 percent of the electorate.
And it still wouldnt be as stupid as the GOP pushing amnesty, because banning birth control wouldnt create millions more voters who consistently vote against the Democrats.
Listening to Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus burble a few weeks ago on Fox News Sunday about how amnesty is going to push the Republicans to new electoral heights, one is reminded of Democratic pollster Pat Caddells reason for refusing to become a Republican: No matter how enraged he gets at Democratic corruption, he says he cant bear to join such a stupid party as the GOP.
the woman who attacked newt and gave us Romney
2+2=4 even if the village idiot says so. Here, Coulter is 100% correct
Ann Coulter must be evaluated one issue at a time. I do the same thing with Pat Buchanen. (And now, apparently, Rand Paul.)
“Stupid” Ann, is spending your professional career bashing people like Romney as America’s problem, then championing him to conservatives.
“THAT” is stupid.
Coulter is a self-serving, elitist tool.
Never thought I would say this, but it is time for a viable 3rd party, might as well call it the Freedom party, I love the tea party, but its focus is too narrow, we need a party that will fight for freedom on all issues, not just fiscal.
Yes, she’s back on track with this one. But her support for gay activists (GOProud) and then Mitt Romney pretty well finished her off as someone who can be counted on.
Still can’t forgive her for climbing on Willard’s bandwagon so early. But when she’s right, she’s right.
A woman scorned...
Don’t forget: She was hyping Chris Christie before she flitted to Romney!
2 + 2 = 5
signed, Big Brother
Any time a person qualifies their statement with “As a gay man” or “As a lesbian”; Or “As a XXXXXXX” at all, that person should be immediately written off regardless as whatever follows will be filtered through their collective agenda.
Same goes for those who support people who do that.
I have come to love big brother....
Feel free to share-its make or break time on this issue and this video says it all.
Go Ann, Scrawny Blondish RINO award for lumping Ayotte and Flake with goober and Rubio. Read the art spin from the dork side. Friends like Anis preclude any need for fools to tolerae.
Just so. And I’m not sure which was worse, Christie or Romney. I think she was channeling Karl Rove or something.
Coulter is all about Coulter. She was a total Romney freak, and I honestly don’t care what she says about anything.
Annie Cutie-Pie sells books.
Annie C.P. picks who SHE thinks will sell her the most books.
Annie C.P. is a follower of THE MONEY.
Annie C.P. is not a leader.
BTW Annie C.P., for your next book cover, why not try a Lady Godiva pose on the back of a Rhino?
