Apostle Claver: The GOP “Brown” Panic
It’s been a media blitz by the “so-called” GOP leaders in the last couple of weeks to explain the proposed “solution” to the immigration problem of the Unites States. You may have heard Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina giving his explanation of the intentions of the U.S. Senate’s Gang of 8 on national radio. Even the glorified Hannity seems to be on board. You may have watched all 7 appearances of Senator Marco Rubio on Sunday’s talk shows. But, it all boils down to one pure, political emotion. Panic! With amnesty on the lips of most everyone, it is now being reported that there’s a run for the border by foreign nationals that want to be in the country before the impending amnesty law goes into affect.
Here in Texas, the Republican “leadership” is running scared like pre-schoolers at the mention of closet monsters. The Hispanic population of the state is approaching 40%, whites are below 50%, and as a result elected officials and the plutocratic puppet masters are rolling over for amnesty like dead roaches.
On the national scene, the condition isn’t much different. Lead by senate occupants and RNC party big wigs, the thought pattern is to look at the fact that Latinos comprise 16.6% of the national population and conclude that the only way to win their voting support is to totally capitulate on the immigration/amnesty issue.
The stance that these elected officials have decided to put forth is more reason to distrust their leadership and, frankly, question the wisdom of the electorate, en masse. Who are the people that elected these spineless, brainless, squids? Whomever they are, as a committed conservative – an ultra conservative, even – it’s becoming more apparent that maybe I don’t have very much in common with these voters. They surrender too quickly and easily. They obviously don’t understand the facts on the ground. Are they exercising their franchise on extremely low information? They apparently listen too intently to the propaganda that is blasted from Washington, Devil City (from both parties) and the masters of propaganda identified as the Democratic Party and the Leftist media. Surely, they can’t be persuaded by the arguments that are being presented to them by the “all-powerful-all-knowing” federal and state officeholders?
The Republican Party of Texas has been infiltrated by pro-amnesty Latinos that mask themselves as conservatives. Along with the pro-amnesty plutocrats, they are effectively pressuring the spineless squid RINOs in the state Capitol, and the party officials that office on Lavaca Avenue in Austin to roll over on the issue of immigration and amnesty. Their argument is that the party has to roll over in order to secure the votes of Hispanics in the state of Texas, and the argument is presented for the national party, as well. Do NOT be deceived! That is NOT the case!
Do not fall for the deception. Every time you hear a party official, legislator, or political executive make the argument that the only way to win the Hispanic vote is to roll over on the issue of amnesty, you have identified someone who is utterly uninformed on the matter and is ill-equipped to be a “leader” for the conservative cause. They have swallowed the kool-aid and are not worthy of high office.
The facts are very straight forward. The Latino portion of the national electorate is a mere 9%. Even the homosexual portion of the electorate is higher. In Texas, the Latino portion of the electorate is a mere 20%. This idea that the Latino population has this incredible electoral power is a myth and scare tactic put forth for the purpose of making the GOP cower. And, it has worked! The GOP leadership is in full panic mode and thus, are ready to capitulate on immigration and amnesty. They’ve caved and compromised with the cover of glossing themselves as being statesman-like.
The inept GOP leadership won’t do the prudent thing. The prudent thing is to recognize that the polling numbers show that African-American voters are adamantly against amnesty. Black voters understand that amnesty harms their community and employment opportunities more than any other community. Yet, instead of understanding this reality and using their resources to convince Black voters to switch party allegiance through effective messaging, GOP leadership would rather launch a timid “outreach” campaign toward the Black electorate, essentially, and capitulate to the idea of amnesty in the hopes that all of a sudden liberal Latino voters will label the party as “friendly” to Hispanics. How idiotic!
Most of us clearly grasp what the solutions are to the illegal immigration problem. But, for those that do not, a composition will be forthcoming outlining some of the more obvious.
