Where is the Hispanic Community?
aimhigh ^ | 7/14/13 | aimhigh

Posted on 07/14/2013 8:41:21 AM PDT by aimhigh

Where is the Hispanic community? Why the silence in regards to the Trayvon Martin case? Here we have a Hispanic man that has been placed on the alter of Al Sharpton, to be sacrificed for Democratic Party politics. Yet the Hispanics have turned their backs on Zimmerman and remained silent.

That is a very good question. Perhaps they choose to do nothing to jeopardize the shamnesty bill.

It could be that the average Hispanic doesn’t have as strong a sense of “racial” identity as the average black. And where are the prominent Hispanic race-baiters?

“Yet the Hispanics have turned their backs on Zimmerman and remained silent.”

Maybe they are afraid that Obama will repeal his immigration thrust and not allow them to be citizens - so they sit quietly like good little illegals!

One more example of people selling each other out - it’s a cut throat business this political game is.

Trust me. They'll get their Trayvon Martin.

Hispanics, white or otherwise, are as brainwashed and as malleable as black.

Like George Zimmerman, I qualify as a White Hispanic. Mexican father, German mother. Both Naturalized.

So I "feel" qualified to say the derogatory things I've just said. I've got immunity.

Hispanics live in my neighborhood - everyone welcomes them - they keep their yard clean and they're kids under control - they've become Americans.

They're not 'Hispanic-Americans' like Hispanic race baiters wish they'd be... Hopefully we'll drum the Rubio's and McCain's out of our party... it's sick enough when dems play race politics - we don't need to copy that pathology.

imho ... the agenda is the why. They chose to stand with the agenda. The agenda is being played out by those in D.C. and the media, but hey you know that. If it fits the agenda, people must be sacrificed. It is the way of the agenda. Haters attempting to take away and not stand in the way is part of the plan. Wish I could be more specific but (sign) I lack the intelligence.

Zimmerman is not here illegally, and is not Mexican. That’s why the Hispanic community did not rally to his support.

To the left, a “Hispanic” is only a “Hispanic” when it’s politically convenient. The Hispanics may be outraged by what’s happening, but the media will never report it. Just because something isn’t in the news, don’t think think it’s not happening. We are in the Dark Ages of journalism, and real news has become a political casualty. For all the good the media does us, we may as well be living in the nineteenth century.

Good point. Proof perhaps reflected in that while most hispanics vote Dem its nowhere near the 90% range of the blacks enslaved on the DemoRat voter plantations.

So I disagree with you Texas Eagle, it's turning out Hispanics are NOT as 'brainwashed and as malleable as blacks'. If they were as brainwashed and malleable as blacks - Hispanic emotional mobs would have been jumping up and down in the streets of Sanford last night - and they weren't. They reacted like rational citizens. Period.

That's the same situation as many Latinos in American society. They are heavily integrated into our culture in many cases. The Mexican invasion is a different story entirely.

He isn’t the “right kind” of Hispanic....not Mexican, not Puerto Rican, not here illegally. It’s typical leftist profiling, and he doesn’t fit.

Mexican is a nationality. Hispanic is a race, apparently, although I would not consider it so.

Are there no legal Hispanics in America? It would have been nice to have heard from them, or still hear from them. No reason why black thugs should get all the "cry victim" limelight.

When not-so-Sharpton seized on this case, he likely saw the name George Zimmerman, an visualized a Jewish diamond
merchant. Turns out, George was brown. Uh-Oh. Well, his dad
was white so they could technically call him white. Hispanics in this country were probably quite confused as to
what to do. I suppose they are quietly thrilled he is acquitted, but will keep it to themselves, as the bigger picture is the obammy agenda for them.

So the ‘obammy’ community, that George supported, savaged
him, turning his life into a Kafkaesque nightmare. The ‘Hispanic’ community said and did nothing for him. I wonder which community George will identify with now? I wonder if he knows which community has supported him, regardless of the color of his skin.

I just asked the same question in another thread, and sent that question to Rush Limbaugh.

The media has it made out that Zimmerman is white, period, with a grudging acknowledgement of his Spanish ancestry. His last name is German, so it's easy for them to get away with it.

Obviously your neighbors weren't involved in this mob action.

I'm not saying ALL Hispanics are brainwashed. I'm saying the ones who engage in this sort of activity are.

Getting back to my original point. I'll bet you a hundred pesos, within the next year, there will be a Trayvon Martin style story for the race baiting leaders of La Raza to get behind.

Lets face it folks, ultimately the same agitators behind the NAACP and Black racism, are behind La Raza, MALDEF, and Hispanic racism.

Having La Raza fire a broadside at the NAACP wouldn’t be productive for those trying to take America down.

Simple as that...

I suspect the majority of Hispanics are doing what they always do, which is mind their own business. They probably think the Trayvon/Zimmerman circus had nothing to do with them or their ethnic constituency. It was a simple case of self defense and black agitation. Besides, the media has sold the American public on the fantasy that GZ is white.

“That is a very good question.”

His background is Peruvian and he is here legally so he isn’t really considered Hispanic by LaRaza.

First of all, there is no such thing as A HISPANIC. Hispanic is a totally made up ‘people’ exactly the same way palestinians, who, BTW trained la raza, (MeCha,) are a totally made up ‘people’. It’s a WORD they coined to include ALL spanish speaking peoples under their banner who they claimed, but who never asked to be included. They folded in Puerto Ricans, Cubans, and anyone from Central and South America and all the islands in between.
That’s why they could care less what a rubio says or a Puerto Rican, (who they consider trash,) says.

Please do not insult most of those of Hispanic ancestry-that is just what the real racists like our current department of INjustice would just love, and nothing good can come from playing into that.

I’m “white” and of Hispanic ancestry-my family became “native Texans” over 200 years ago. I was brought up conservative and color blind, in a hard-working ranch family.

Like the other Native born Hispanics of my acquaintance, I want illegals sent home, period-we do not-repeat-DO NOT support amnesty of any sort, we work and own businesses, and we are not for sale to anyone any more than you are-so please don’t buy into that media nonsense-we are Americans first and foremost.

I’m convinced that MLK is rolling in his grave over how his message of equality being color blind is used-it is nothing like what I was taught, or what I read as a kid-and to have Hispanics running around with hate signs, threatening violence would only put us in the same racist category as Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson...

Thanks for listening to my rant-I’ll get off the soapbox now...
