      to read the articles he should mention and then to point out the headlines to him so he can pontificate.  Actually having to read might make him sweat.

      I think he was referring to the fact that approximately 75% of Hispanics vote Democratic so of course they are moochers. It's Rush-logic!

      Here is a study Rush might do well to read before he mouths off again

    •  Old recycled stereotyping is what (0+ / 0-)

      he's citing - just wait for the Puerto Ricans to be pulled into this attempt at creating divisions amongst the greater Hispanic voting bloc.

      The lazy vs. hard working comparison bullshit comes out of a pretty old playbook.  Worse still, it was always a relativistic view from the racists and the baseline as that "they were all" undesirable, but at least "the Cubans were more hard working".  "They" were all problematic, but some were considered not "as bad".  Disgusting.

      •  I think it's more like... (0+ / 0-)

        ..."well, we really don't like any of them, but at least those Cubans were willing to break into the Democratic National Committee headquarters for us, so...."

        •  Basically that is what I was saying. (1+ / 0-)

          Obviously I was unclear in how I wrote it.

          I left out the whole part about having a front row seat for this conversation around my grandparents who thought that all of "those people" in South Florida were useless but thought more highly of the Cubans than the Puerto Ricans - even though my Aunt who married their son was Puerto Rican - she took care of both of them when they were sick and infirmed, but never was able to win better status for her people over the Cubans.
