Bigotry at the Washington Post


Pages: 1 2

Apparently they should single out legal ones, in the manner of Washington Post cartoons. There’s apparently nothing “poisonous” or “infectious,” “shameful” or “nativist,” mind you, about a cartoon gloating over the expulsion of U.S. citizens of Hispanic origin from America’s shores in a manner identical to Ferdinand and Isabella’s expulsion of Jews and Moors from Spain.

“Stop the Raids! Stop Hurting Children!” blared another WaPo editorial headline of the time. “The New Bedford raid is an inelegant example of how badly this country needs a clear-eyed immigration policy, one that provides . . . a path to citizenship for immigrants who have put down roots and contributed to the national economy.” (“As long as they don’t go on to vote Republican” they forgot to add.)

The immigrant (actually, refugee) group the Post insults in a manner utterly inconceivable for any other, is in fact the very one that “implanted roots” and “contributed to the national economy” like few others. The 2000 census shows 2nd generation Americans of Cuban heritage to have income and educational levels higher — not just than other “Hispanic” (a meaningless term) groups– but higher than the U.S population in general.

Back in 2006 current Daily Beast columnist Norman Birnbaum said of Cuban-Americans: “Despite the truly repellent Miami Cubans of the older generation and their gallant allies, the Israel lobby, Castro hangs on.”

Birnbaum is also a Georgetown Professor Emeritus and former advisor to three Democratic Presidential candidates. Can you imagine, say, a Republican political adviser and Hillsdale college professor/author spouting – on the record for public consumption – any of the following phrases: “those truly repellent New York Jews” or “those truly repellent Detroit Negroes” or “those truly repellent Los Angeles Mexicans.”

Would he even bother seeking future media employment? I apologize for insulting your intelligence. Within the MSM/Democratic axis such insults can only apply against Cuban-Americans. And for an excellent reason: Americans of Cuban heritage are not only the most overwhelmingly Republican ethnic group in the U.S.—they’re also the most loyal Republicans in the history of the U.S.

Exit polls show that Cuban-Americans voted against Obama by the highest margins– and by far — of any U.S. ethnic group, including “Anglos.” As regarded by the MSM, this is not an endearing  trait.

    There are tactics employed that require the abandonment of civility, of ethics, and morals. They can hold their heads high and not blink in the face of obvious obfuscation of their primary responsibility to be a reporter of the truth, unbiased and unvarnished ~ OUR eyes and ears in the world to keep us informed. You will rarely find them more concentrated than where someone has decided to commit themselves to the "end" which is a utopian ideal…"for our own good." We just don't see it, you see? They understand and we are uninformed as yet. Therefore, what they do, they believe is virtuous. It really doesn't matter what we may think of their unscrupulous ploys when…the End justifies the Means.

    Another great educational piece by Humberto. Thanks for this piece standing up for patriotic Cubans. We will never hear it from the drive by media.

    I disagree, the Cuban vote will go GOP anyway, just as the Mexican and Puerto Rican votes will go Democrat anyway. Rubio, as great as a pick as he would be, wouldn't really change that. Secondly Florida is probably going to go Republican this time. I can't see President Obama winning any of the southern states that he won in 2008(Virginia, North Carolina, or Florida) the economy is too weak, and independents are fleeing from him in droves.

    While Senator Rubio would be a great choice to put on the ticket, it's not essential that they do so.

      The 'Pubs have to find a candidate who isn't in the clown car. This year's sideshow could easily be titled, "Everyone Hates Mitt." Cain borders on the insane, Hic! Perry makes you long for the decorum and maturity of Shrub, and Bachmann makes them both look good by comparison. Rick "Frothy Mixture" is not a serious candidate, and Newt makes Bill Clinton look like the Pope. A "generic Republican" wins, but none of these clowns stand a chance.

      That The Donald is considering a run speaks volumes.

    Obamacare has already gutted Medicare (which was already on its last leg), taking $500 billion out of it.
