WASHINGTON, September 16, 2015 – “Latinos and Latinas,” said the pandering, old, female exemplar of white privilege, “you’re not strangers, you’re not intruders, you’re our neighbors, our friends, our families.”
That was last October in San Antonio, where Hillary Clinton addressed “Hispanics for Hillary,” a phony political front organization formed and funded by the Clinton presidential campaign.
Tuesday night, the Republican debate in Las Vegas, Nevada, centered on two candidates standing for the highest office in the land: Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and Florida’s Sen. Marco Rubio.
While the Democratic Party would rather “Latinos and Latinas” remain at arm’s length, serving as government-dependent neighbors, under-paid dishwashers, janitors, nannies and gardeners, two Latinos have, instead, decided to run as Republican candidates for president of the United States.
The two, old, tired white Democrats (Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders) would rather Latinos focus on the shiny gifts awaiting them for their votes, when they expand America’s old, tired, socialist income-redistribution schemes.
The two, young, energetic Republican Latinos running for president would rather tell you about their parents’ experience of oppression and privations under tyrannical Cuban socialism and how that opened their eyes to Thomas Jefferson’s “self-evident” truth that a legitimate government’s primary purpose is to protect the individual’s natural right to life and liberty.
Rubio has said, “My dad was a bartender. My mom was a cashier, a maid and a stock clerk at K-Mart. They never made it big. They were never rich. And yet they were successful. Because just a few decades removed from hopelessness, they made possible for us all the things that had been impossible for them.”
Cruz has said Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders will force Hillary Clinton to have an “honest” debate about their plans to move America further down the road to economic Armageddon.
“Hillary’s economic policies often end up pretty close to Bernie Sanders’,” Cruz told Bloomberg television, “It’ll be interesting having her explain whether or not she agrees with Bernie Sanders – with policies that he’ll describe as socialism. If you look at who has been hurt under the Obama economy, the Hispanic community has been hammered,” Cruz said.
Elsewhere in the Americas, 11.2 million Cubans and 18.5 million Venezuelans – victims of the privations associated with socialist income equality – agree.
How do Democrats dismiss the glaring contrasts above? They simply deny that Rubio and Cruz are, well, Hispanics.
MSNBC host Chris Matthews, a good Democratic Party man, utilized an overused tool of the left – redefining reality.
The lily-white Matthews told his MSNBC audience that Cruz and Rubio should not “insinuate” they are Hispanics simply because of their “Spanish surname, I’m not sure the right word is Hispanic for them, because they are Cuban nationals or whatever, or come from Cuba.”
Now that’s what I call white privilege!
While we are on the issue, Hillary Clinton recently said “a lot of well-meaning, open-minded white people” cannot hide from the “hard truths about race and justice in America. We have to name them, and own them, and then change them.”
But for Hillary and her party, that requires forgetting the Southern Democrats’ practice of political suppression, intimidation and murder under “Jim Crow” and redefining today’s pandering to Hispanics and other minorities, which has trapped generation after generation in an endless cycle of government dependence, as “compassion.”
White privilege by any other name still reeks to high heaven.
