  •  They are stunned that Latinos aren't conservatives (12+ / 0-)

    Asians, too. They just make assumptions and won't correct their viewpoints when facts contradict their version of reality.

    It'll be fun to watch the theatrics that go into convincing themselves that all Latinos are very conservative, and Republican. Nananana I can't hear you...(facts and evidence) Chicago Parade for Post 9/11 vets on Saturday, Dec 15th.

    •  it's their echo chamber (6+ / 0-)

      They think everyone who makes a decent salary, is hardworking, and has a family just has to be conservative.

      Just has to.

      Including those who don't yet make a decent salary, but are hardworking and by golly hope to some day.

      Them to.

      They all should be conservative.

      I don't know how many times I've read someone stating in all seriousness:

      "[Insert immigrant group here] are natural members for the Republican Party. They believe in this nation and in the value of family and hard work."
      ...Because (unstated implication) Democrats hate America, want to undermine families, and are lazy.

      They actually believe that stuff.  It's hilarious.

    •  It's the same mistaken assumption (6+ / 0-)

      they made back in the mid 2000s that they could win African-Americans with anti-gay marriage laws. And maybe African-Americans DID support some of those amendments, as they did in Ohio. BUT there was a ten-point gap between the passage of Ohio's DOMA and George Bush's total votes. So obviously quite a few voters— probably quite a few African-Americans — were not swayed to the GOP. And younger AAs are less dogmatic on the social issues as well. I see the same aging pastors every time a group steps up to oppose marriage equality or partner benefits.

      Jon Husted is a dick.

        Or most of it anyway. You know, the decent white folks. If  any of this was true they wouldn't need to gerrymander, lie, cheat and steal the vote. Chicago Parade for Post 9/11 vets on Saturday, Dec 15th.
