Tuesday gave us yet another reminder that chasing after the Latino vote is a self-delusional exercise for Republicans. They aren’t interested in our values and never will be.
The plurality Hispanic Albuquerque New Mexico had a chance to vote down late term abortions, which are arguably the vilest of infanticides, but decided not to do so. The vote was a 55/45 landslide for death and Democrat politics of doing anything including killing babies to satisfy their depraved supporters.
In a special election to determine the moral rectitude of the people of Albuquerque they decided that taking orders from their Democrat masters and do their bidding, is more important than the lives of their own innocent children. So much for the notion of the strongly “family centered” Latino community.
The turnout was unusually high for an “off” cycle Election Day. While only 70, 000 of the city’s 360,000 voters cast a ballot in last month’s mayoral election, 87,000 turned out for this ballot. This landslide was not an accident. The Hispanics in Albuquerque showed us why they can never be converted to Republican voters.
Cloaking her support for murdering innocent babies in rhetoric, Micaela Cadena of the Respect ABQ Women campaign said “Albuquerque families sent a powerful message today: They do not want the government interfering in their private medical decisions. Dangerous, unconstitutional laws like the one we rejected today have no place in Albuquerque, no place in New Mexico, no place anywhere in our nation.”
The percentage of all abortions that are committed on babies after twenty weeks is just 1.3%. Nevertheless, this small concession never had a chance of being accepted by those bent on murder for convenience. There is no chance to have an honest dialog with abortionists. They will not ever be persuaded to compromise in any way.
The larger lesson here is that those who believe importing more Hispanics via amnesty will miraculously bring about a glut of conservative voters who will perpetually vote Republican had better think again.
The Hispanics are politically smarter than the African Americans. They understand that they can play Republicans and get “goodies” from them as they do their electoral fan dance. They make hapless Republican fools like Karl Rove believe “this time” they will finally get the Latino vote only to hear a chorus of “gracias for the bennies senior” as Latinos once again line up to pull the lever for the Democrats.
The GOPe needs to learn the lesson of Albuquerque.
