Is Linda Chavez a Hispanic racist?

Jeremy Meister:

Linda Chavez you're a racist idiot. Your latest column proves it.

"Some people just don't like Mexicans — or anyone else from south of the border. They think Latinos are freeloaders and welfare cheats who are too lazy to learn English. They think Latinos have too many babies, and that Latino kids will dumb down our schools. They think Latinos are dirty, diseased, indolent and more prone to criminal behavior. They think Latinos are just too different from us ever to become real Americans."

Okay - making a gross generalization about Hispanics, Latinos and other people south of the border is racist. So what about making gross generalizations about people *north* of the border (for example, suggesting that they 'just don't like Mexicans'?) Oh right, whites aren't really a race and even if they were they have it coming so racial prejudice against them doesn't hurt anything.

I'm sorry, I really have to disagree. You see we're talking about *ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS*. That could be people from anywhere. A lot of Conservatives I know are talking about radical middle eastern Muslims coming through the otherwise porous border. If we have a desire to discriminate, it's against people who want to come here with the intention of harming us.

Not that matters to you and self righteous friends. Only hybris in your heritage brings you to the arrogant conclusion that you're being singled out.

Of course we argue with Latino groups over immigration policy: Latino groups have made themselves the face of the immigration debate. And by far and large you're getting your way. Most of Congress and the President wants to give you what you want. It's only a minority killing this stuff in committees that prevents it from becoming law.

Our government is supposed to follow the will of the majority. There isn't a poll around (push or otherwise) that has a majority of Americans favoring lax immigration policy. Some of the highest numbers opposed to weak immigration laws are amongst legal immigrants themselves. And you think our government is giving illegals a raw deal? You're a part of the government.

We have a population of people coming here - a minority population (that means you're outnumbered). You have come here uninvited. You demand that we speak your language. You demand that we change our schools to teach what you think is important. You want access to all the laws you like: welfare, housing subsidies, college subsidies, social security and so on. You think the laws you don't like shouldn't apply: immigration laws, auto registrations, tax laws, and so on. You're bringing strange diseases all but unknown with you. Some of you are murderers, rapists and other violent offenders. Our elected officials are attempting to give you what you want *and I'm the racist?!*

Latinos (and I'm going to address them, because Linda Chavez who wrote this mentioned them specifically) have no interest in merging their culture with ours. THEY are the real racists. If they weren't, they would at least learn our language. Latinos have demonstrated through their actions and deeds that they have no interest in becoming Americans. All they want is our money. Why else would they come here? They're using us and demand that we kiss their butts.

Actually, the problem isn't that Linda Chavez sticks up for (other) Latinos, it's that Whites do not stick up for other Whites, or for America and its demographic heritage as a majority white nation.

Like many people of Mexican ancestry, Chavez's first loyalty is to La Raza.
