Harry Reid recently confirmed one of the infinite number of things he doesn’t know when he stated “I don’t know how anyone of Hispanic heritage could be a Republican, okay. Do I need to say more?” I suspect the initial reaction among conservatives would be “Yes please, sir.. do say more, and more..” Besides being the kind of colossal ignorance we’ve come to expect from our beloved Senate Majority leader, the statement exposes (as if it needed exposing) the type of racism prevalent among democrats in general. Since racism seems born of negative stereotypes, or even positive stereotypes as Jimmy the Greek quickly learned, then Senator Reid’s assumptions about everyone “of Hispanic Heritage” must necessarily be racist. It is necessary to point out that Harry Reid phrased his statement, not as fact, but rather as an opinion and thus not subject to critical research as to how wrong he is. I mean, if he doesn’t know how split Hispanics are on the subject of immigration and immigration enforcement then, well… he doesn’t know. If he hasn’t read the Pew research on the matter and seen for himself that 56% of natural born Hispanics support checking immigration status before issuing drivers licenses then he will remain happily ignorant and we can remain happily aware of his ignorance.
His statement did start me thinking about all of the things that I don’t know:
- I don’t know how anyone who survived their mothers pregnancy could become a democrat.
- I don’t know how anyone who has actually calculated that their second, possibly first largest monthly bill is taxes could become a democrat.
- I don’t know how anyone who has ever prepared their own taxes could be a democrat.
- I don’t know how anyone who has ever actually read the constitution could be a democrat.
- I don’t know how anyone who has ever served their country in the military could be a democrat.
- I don’t know how anyone who has waited at the DMV could be a democrat.
- I don’t know how anyone who has discovered the lies they were told in public school could become a democrat.
- I don’t know how anyone who has ever experienced the “open-mindedness” of college professors could become a democrat.
- I don’t know how anyone who truly understands the concept of the American dream, American exceptionalism, American ingenuity, American self-reliance, and the indomitable American spirit could ever become a democrat.
Okay… need I say more?
