BY: JORGE BONILLAVia the Media Research Center, a revealing bit of video, and a particularly bracing piece of evidence of what I call “The Latino Matrix”.
Allahpundit’s headline and post aptly describe the video in sum, and he’s dead-on in his assessment that immigration will remain a wedge no matter the outcome of any of the current legislation before us. However, I would like to focus specifically on what happens at the 1:30 mark. As the interviewer approaches a group of protesters of Colombian origin, an activist comes over and helpfully explains the anti-Rubio animus behind the D.C. protest.
In a matter of 65 seconds, our activist friend gives us an entire summation of the ongoing campaign to delegitimize Marco Rubio (and by extension, all Hispanic conservatives). To wit:
- Rubio has forsaken his roots (thus establishing Hispanic inauthenticity via race betrayal)
- Rubio’s proposals are not amnestyish enough. Watch as the activist goes back to her race-betrayal argument when the interviewer points out that Rubio supports a path to citizenship.
- And then, the money shot. “The parents…they watch Univision, you know, and they think that Rubio is against them”.
Incidentally, many of the interviewed were from Washington D.C.’s Thomson Elementary School. Given their reading and math proficiencies, I say shame on the grievance machine for compelling those parents to pull their kids out of school.
