He’s at it again. More Harry Reid racist comments; speaking to a mostly Hispanic crowd trying to drum up votes for his re-election bid in Nevada, Senator Harry Reid said, “I don’t know how anyone of Hispanic heritage could be a Republican”.
This is just another item on Harry’s list of foot-in-mouth racist comments.
You know what I don’t understand Harry? How a black man could attend the funeral of a former Grand Kleagle of the Ku Klux Klan, simply because he was a Democrat.
More from Republicans who happen to be Hispanic:
……Reid’s comments were quickly criticized Wednesday by one of the GOP’s rising stars — Marco Rubio, the son of Cuban exiles who is running for U.S. Senate in Florida.
In an interview with Fox News, Rubio called Reid’s remarks “outrageous” and “ridiculous” and said “this kind of outrageous speech in politics is continuing to spread.”
“You know, Americans of Hispanic descent, you know what the strongest issue there is? That is economic empowerment, upward mobility,” Rubio said. “There’s only one economic system in the world that that’s possible in, time and again, and that’s the American free enterprise system.
“And the reason why Americans of Hispanic descent should be Republicans is because the Democratic leadership is trying to dismantle the American free enterprise system,” he continued. “The point is he’s wrong.”
This is a message to Harry from another Hispanic Republican, Cubachi, who tells off Harry Reid in no uncertain terms:
Well Harry, let me introduce myself. I am the daughter of Cuban exiles who have seen first hand the failures of liberal and socialist policies in their native country. My father in fact, was a political prisoner in Cuba for five years because the government deemed his speech against repression and dictatorship “hateful and dangerous.” Sort of like what you democrats say about the tea parties, although you have not thrown their members in jail… yet.
The United States, with President Richard Nixon at the time, welcomed Cuban exiles. Only in the United States was there a country where they would allow immigrants of oppressive and regressive nations, come to make a better life for themselves and their family. A country that was the antithesis of the misery and desperation of Cuba. My father looked at the platform of the republican party that endorsed small government, lower taxes, and strong defense, while the democrat party embraced Che Guevara and Fidel Castro, murderers and tyrants, as some sort of folk heroes, and endorsed larger governments taking power away from the people.
Although I wasn’t born in Cuba, I witnessed for myself liberals governing the state of New Jersey. I saw the failed policies of former Governors Jim McGreevy and Jon Corzine. Unions ran the show, uncontrolled and limitless spending, massive corruption, and the highest property taxes in the nation. I, as a thinking, tax-paying citizen, can not fathom why I would support democrats that have ran this state to near bankruptcy. Heck, I see it in a larger scale in Washington, DC. Yes Harry Reid, I do think and watch the news.
Also Reid, in case you didn’t know, Latinos have a mind of their own. As much as I think you’re a bigoted, lazy thinker, you might have admitted what all democrats think of Hispanics who are on the right side of the aisle. You belittle us, think we need the nanny state to help us with our woes. Hispanics are actually a religious, pro-life, pro-business, and hard-working poeple. You know the stuff Americans are made of. I know many Latinos who work more than 12 hours a day, seven days a week, to earn their keep and give their children the life they couldn’t have in their native countries.
Americans of all colors and sizes work to put food on the table, raise their kids for a better life. We just want government to get off our backs. Harry Reid, take a walk to the House of representatives and meet with Reps. Ileana Ros-Leithen, Mario and Lincoln-Diaz Balart. Last time I checked, they’re republicans and *gasp* hold on tight Reid for this latest bit of news, they’re Hispanics!
Marco Rubio commented:
“It’s outrageous. It’s ridiculous,” Rubio said of Reid’s comments. “You know, Americans of Hispanic descent, you know the strongest issue there is? That is economic empowerment–upward mobility. My parents worked every single day to work to give me and my siblings opportunities that they didn’t have.”
I want to see for myself, which democrats and media types would have the audacity to defend Reid’s racist statement.
Reid, you’re such a disgusting, low-life bigot. First you talk about Americans who visit the Capitol as permeating a dreadful odor, you say our president does not talk in a “negro dialect” and now you belittle republican Hispanics as idiots. What a creep.
Sweet justice for me, would be to see Marco Rubio enter the senate as you exit your way out to hand the keys to Sharron Angle.
As Michelle Malkin said best:
Take your ethnic plantation owner mentality, Harry, and shove it.
Bravo, Mr. Rubio and Ms. Cubachi. Many minority Republicans are sick to death of the arrogant patronizing by the Democrats. Prominent Black Republicans like Clarence Thomas, Alan Keyes, Thomas Sowell, Kenneth Gladney, Ken Blackwell, Bob Parks, Col. Allen West, Herman Cain, and Condolezza Rice, are labeled “oreos” and “Uncle Toms” by the so-called “tolerant”, “open minded” Democratic Party.
Harry’s side of the aisle is chock full of mealy-mouthed hypocrites who exploit minorities and take for granted that they are just tools in the Dem voting bloc.
