Long term problems for republicans
GOP’s problems with Latinos could get much, much worse
By Jamelle Bouie, Published: May 14, 2013 at 11:43 amE-mail the writer
Given the current scandal-mania, it’s no surprise this went under the radar, but in Florida, the GOP’s state director of Hispanic outreach, Pablo Pantoja, has resigned his position, left the Republican Party, and changed his party identification to “Democrat.”
His reasoning is straightforward: For all the focus on outreach to Latino communities, Pantoja believes that there is a “culture of intolerance surrounding the Republican Party.” In a letter, he cites the recent revelations surrounding Jason Richwine, a former scholar at the Heritage Foundation, and his ideas on race and intelligence.“Although the organization distanced themselves from those assertions,” writes Pantoja,“other immigration-related research is still padded with the same racist and eugenics-based innuendo.”
And then there’s also all the GOP rhetoric about immigration. It’s not hard to find examples of prominent Republicans using racially-loaded terms like “anchor babies” and “illegals” to describe unauthorized Latino immigrants and their children. Indeed, the Republican presidential primaries were soaked with derogatory rhetoric towards immigrants, and one candidate — Texas Governor Rick Perry — began his slide to defeat after he expressed sympathy for the children of unauthorized immigrants.
Pantoja’s departure from the Republican Party is instructive. Not only does it illustrate the dynamic of the last four years — where Latino voters responded to negative Republican rhetoric by going further into the Democratic camp — but the potential dynamic of the next decade. As Greg noted earlier this morning, conservative Republicans in the Senate are preparing to introduce a variety of “poison pill” amendments to the immigration bill — which is happening right now as we speak — designed to make the package unpalatable to supporters. Likewise, House Republicans have yet to offer their support to a comprehensive bill.
The combination of right-wing rhetoric and figures like Jason Richwine have created the perception of racialized opposition to immigration reform, where attempts to kill the legislation stem from anti-Hispanic bigotry. If the immigration bill fails, it could damage the GOP’s relationship with Hispanic voters even further for another generation. Which means — for Republican supporters — that it has to pass. There’s no other option.
The good news is that a bill is still possible, as key Republicans like Marco Rubio remain behind the proposal. But they still need to break through right-wing opposition, and so far, it’s hard to see that happening.
A whole lot can happen - and change - in three years. Maybe even sooner when everyone knows the failed coup that's unraveling before our eyes.

You have probably never heard of the town of al-Duvair near Homs Syria. Like parts of Syria, al-Duvair was dominated by Christians, until the Free Syrian Army, the group John McCain wants America to support with our tax dollars, moved in.
They massacred men, women and children. Why? Because, they were Christians.
This is not the first war crimes committed by the Free Syrian Army. The have committed massacres, destroyed churches and communities. They are radical Islamists. They have said they intend to impose Sharia law on Syria. They have pledged loyalty to Al-Qaeda. Christians are being massacred by the very Syrian Free Army that has pledged allegiance to Al Qaeda John McCain supports and Barack Obama is helping to supply.

McCain is just another Democrat wearing a RINO costume. And, now, he's meeting with Al Qaeda and planning to give them arms.

Perhaps you can explain the concept of redlining, why banks used it, and why it coincidentally coincided with racial boundaries.
In other words, why did all the people who never paid their bills and drove down real estate value live in black neighborhoods?
Banks don't care what color you are. They only care if you pay your goddam bills on time. The only color they see is green.
Perhaps if you wouldn't burn down your own goddam neighborhood so goddam often, you might get a real bank to make a loan in there.
Maybe if there were fewer drive-by shootings and you didn't stack the bullet-riddled corpses to the rafters in the morgues every goddam weekend, you might get a real bank to make some loans in your neighborhood.
Maybe if you became civilized, you might reap the benefits of civilization.
A Tea Party idiot defending racial discrimination. No shock there.

Banks should look at individuals, not where they live or the color of their skin.

Banks lost in court. Redlining was deemed racist.

Immigration reform will occur, denying another of your hate platforms.

Obamacare will be an unqualified success, much to your chagrin.

The economy will continue to grow under leadership from Obama.
