I’ve shared many stories about being a minority conservative with you.
We’re reviled by the Left for our “betrayal” of our supposed tribes — accused of being Uncle Toms, Aunt Tomasinas, House Niggas, puppets of the White Man, Oreos, Sambos, coconuts, bananas, sellouts, and whores.
This is how the ethnic tribalist left rolls.
But fiercely individualist and equipped with mighty thick skin, most fellow minority conservatives I know rise above the plantation mentality and brush off liberal crabs in the bucket viciously trying to hold onto dissenters “of color.”
That’s par for the course. What’s remarkable now is that pathetic “independent” loser Charlie Crist is actually bragging about an endorsement from an organization that defines people solely by their ethnicity. (Hat tip: Terry Ann Online)
From Crist’s website:
La Gaceta Endorses Charlie Crist for U.S. Senate
Friday, October 8th, 2010
Prominent Trilingual Newspaper Endorses Charlie Crist for U.S. Senate, urges Florida voters to unite against Marco Rubio
This is a most unusual race that is drawing national attention. Former Florida Speaker of the House Marc Rub (we have stripped Marco Rubio of his Hispanicness and the vowels from his name) is the Republican nominee and faces Congressman Kendrick Meek, who is the Democratic nominee, and both are being challenged by Governor Charlie Crist, who is no party’s nominee. Let’s also not forget the other 10 candidates.
Their names are irrelevant.
This race draws national attention because of its national importance. A Rub win here could change the balance of the Senate. It would give the Tea Partiers a big win with their most mainstream candidate. It also could set the direction of Florida for years to come. If Rub wins, he’ll get 12 years in the Senate which he’ll parlay into eight years as governor and then a run for the White House. His unbridled ambition and no-moral-constraints policy positions make Marc Rub one dangerous hombre.
What bothers us the most about Rub is that he’s turned his back on his Hispanic family, and that’s unacceptable.
The endorsement goes on to tediously refer to “Rub” and attacks him for taking policy positions contrary to the “Hispanic family” mob.
Let’s hope Florida resoundingly rejects such identity politics demagoguery and lets Crist sink to the bottom of the crab bucket. It won’t come soon enough.
This “La Gaceta” endorsement – when translated into Standard English – sounds a lot like “They want to take away our seat.”
Gee, I dunno why, but that sounds sooooooooooo familiar.
In the Florida U.S. Senate race, Republican Marco Rubio is running away with a commanding 44 – 30 percent likely voter lead over Gov. Charlie Crist, running as an independent, with Democrat U.S. Rep. Kendrick Meek third with 22 percent, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.
