Limbaugh: Difference Between Cubans and Mexicans is...

T]he way the Republicans are looking at it is that they think that Hispanic immigrants are made-to-order conservatives. For some reason, culturally, they think that they're invested in hard work. And using the Cuban exile model, they're exactly right. But the Hispanic demographic, if you will, or population, has shifted. And the Cuban exile model is no longer the dominant model. The Mexican immigrant model is. And that -- they arrive with an entirely different view of America. And I'm sorry if this is offensive, but it's true.

2. I can't believe he hauled out the "L" word! The OTHER one, mind you...

I thought he reserved that just for POTUS, the sleazy little tool.

3. He was thrown out of a restaurant today in North Palm Beach. Another poster here had all of the

details but roughly: It was a Spanish restaurant I think and the owner didn't want him there, he was too divisive, etc. It's good stuff. I'll try to find the original thread

Here it is:http://www.democraticunderground.com/10022294946

5. That story was satire, believable but not true

that said, Limbaugh is still a worthless waste of air.

4. Un-fucking-believable, I grew up

in southern Arizona about 15 miles from the border. I have worked a lot in California, Arizona, Texas and Oklahoma. Generally speaking the mexican immigrants I have known are among the hardest working people anywhere.

Sure there are exceptions I am sure. And the money from the drug smuggling trade and resulting rise of gangs have created a separate, shadow world. But based on my 57 years, Limbaugh's generalization is a stereotype based on nothing but racism.

10. the Repugs may have got the "hispanic" population on their side with the Catholic push ...

but keep asking for their green card when they're third- or so generation American citizens, does tend to get old after a while ...
