The nation's largest Hispanic advocacy group says it must come up with a strategy to combat "a wave of hate" its leaders say came from talk radio's efforts to sink the Senate's immigration bill.
"That had an extraordinary impact in the Senate, and as a nation, I don't think we should be comfortable with the fact that the United States Senate responded to what was largely a wave of hate," Cecilia Munoz, the National Council of La Raza's senior vice president for research, advocacy and legislation.
For those of you new to the debate ... La Raza is a hate group themselves. They hate white people, black people, and asian people. Some chapters have even taken issue with non-Mexican hispanics.
Anytime you have a hate group playing the victim card it's hilarious.
"I think we have to shine a light on it," Ms. Munoz said. "At the end of the day, we believe people need to take sides, that you can't stand on the sidelines, especially if part of what is motivating the actions of the United States Congress is not really about the public-policy debate, but is about their discomfort with Latinos."
Ms. Munoz is retarded.
She speaks about everyone needing to take sides, but if you take a side that contradicts her own ... you are a racist. Instead of allowing Americans to take sides on the issue, and debate policy ... Ms. Munoz will simply proclaim anyone who disagrees with her as hating latinos.
This latest outburst was in regards to the Senate immigration bill that the vast majority of the nation opposed. The Senate was right to uphold the will of the people, and talk radio had little to do with it. Americans weren't upset about latinos ... they were upset at the policy of the bill.
Americans didn't like giving amnesty to those who've broken the law, they didn't like that most illegals were not going to pay the fine, they didn't like the increase in well-trained professionals from other countries coming to do the jobs that Americans most definitely want to do, and they didn't like the fact that this has been done before with absolutely no success.
Americans did like some of the provisions in the bill that dealt with security, but the bill also reduced the size of the fence that is supposed to be under construction right now. That same fence would have been reduced by 400 miles under the Senate's bill. Citizens were upset about all of these things and more, and all of that had to do with the policy debate that Ms. Munoz says Americans are neglecting because of their discomfort with latinos.
Nice try Ms. Munoz, but this debate is all about policy. It has nothing to do with race, and if you'd been monitoring the outrage that Americans have over requiring Chinese on election ballots, you'd know that.
Obama also called those opposed to the immigration bill racist, and vowed to make amnesty happen.
