An article came out recently in the Tribune family of newspapers lamenting the fact that the GOP is fearful that the Donald’s divisive campaign will drive Latino voters away from the GOP for decades to come.
Here is the irony: the GOP has been driving away Latino voters way before the Donald came along. They are clueless that their non inclusive rhetoric cutting food stamps, welfare, public housing, trying to gut Obamacare, gutting social services and looking out for the rich has ALREADY turned off a generation of Latinos. Let alone their treatment of veterans.
I remember as a child the household would never ever vote Democratic but boy have times have changed. No one group is more religious than the Latins but they do not try to run their religious beliefs down people’s throats.
Remember the GOP’s embrace of Proposition 187 in California back in 90’s ? It helped turned that state around to Democratic presidential votes ever since.
And of course the Trumpster has not helped calling Mexicans rapists and drug dealers and saying he will build a wall.
The party allowed Mitt Romney who ironically is of Mexican heritage to spew forth in 2012 when he was running for President he suggested “self deportation” for illegal immigration back then and they are worried NOW that they might be losing the Latino vote?
Newsflash: you lily white crackers looking out for only big business, Billionaires, Wall Street and the 1% have only yourselves to blame for losing the Latino vote, best of luck getting them back in the next twenty or thirty years.
