Hola, Amigos - Señor Reid Says Its Time To Get Back On The Plantation

There is nothing like demanding mindless loyalty and obeisance on the basis of race, ethnicity or nationality. That is, after all, the Democrat's way. And likewise, its the Democrat's way to demonize anyone who strays from their plantation.

Amazingly, someone in the MSM must have choked on this, because they actually called up Señor Reid's office and said, yes, he really does need to say more. The response:

“Sen. Reid’s contention was simply that he doesn't understand how anyone, Hispanic or otherwise, would vote for Republican candidates because they oppose saving teachers’ jobs, oppose job-creating tax incentives for small businesses, oppose investments in job-creating clean energy projects, and oppose the help for struggling, unemployed Nevadans to put food on the table and stay in their homes,” read the statement.

Let's pull those apart.

"Oppose saving teachers jobs."

The "civil rights issue of our generation" is education. Some 25% of blacks and a significant number of Hispanics are mired in a vicious cycle of poverty, the only cure for which is improved education in lower income enclaves. The Democrats are wholly on the wrong side of that issue.

The Democrats are wedded to money from the Teachers' Unions - entities that are all about money and the number of teachers (and thus increasing union dues). The teachers' unions are the enemy of increasing the quality of education in America. For a detailed explanation - see here. Recall that one of the first acts of the Obama Administration was to cancel, at the urging of the NEA, a wildly successful voucher program benefiting inner city poor in the nation's most underperforming school system, Washington D.C. public schools. Obama's kids attend private school in D.C.. But the poor of all races in D.C. no longer have the option to send their children to the same school as Obama's kids.

Does that sound like a good reason to stay on the Democrat's plantation?

"Oppose job-creating tax incentives for small businesses."

This is a joke, right. There has never been, in our history, a Congress or an administration more anti-business. From massive government spending on everything but the expansion of small business to the vast expansion of entitlements and regulations, all of which portend to increase the costs to business, Obama is, in the words of one small business owner, Wayne Allen Root, "The Great Jobs Killer."

With his massive spending and tax hikes -- rewarding big government and big unions, while punishing taxpayers and business owners -- Obama has killed jobs, he has killed motivation to create new jobs, he has killed the motivation to invest in new businesses, or expand old ones. With all this killing, Obama should be given the top spot on the FBI's Most Wanted List.

Indeed, to quote Mort Zuckerman:

We are, without question, in a period of decline, particularly in the business world, . . . The real problem we have…are some of the worst economic policies in place today that, in my judgment, go directly against the long-term interests of this country. [Zuckerman added that he detects in the Obama White House] hostility to the very kinds of [business] culture that have made this the great country that it is and was. I think we have to find some way of dealing with that or else we will do great damage to this country with a public policy that could ruin everything.

Does that sound like a good reason to stay on the Democrat's plantation?

"Oppose investments in job-creating clean energy projects."

Reid and the Democrats absolutely refuse to allow America to exploit its natural resources - which, if opened up, would see the greatest expansion of jobs in America than at any other time in our history. The government wouldn't have to subsidize anything. It would just need to stand out of the way of private business. Instead, Reid and the left are pushing massively subsidized projects that create few permanent jobs and do so at great cost. Moreover, in the long run, these efforts will only contribute to much higher costs of energy.

Does that sound like a reason for Hispanics to stay on the Democratic plantation?

"Oppose the help for struggling, unemployed Nevadans to put food on the table and stay in their homes."

Lollllllllllllllllllll . . . . This coming from the flaming ass who just funded a multi-billion dollar pay-off to Teachers' Unions by cutting billions from the nations food stamps program?

Does that sound like a good reason to stay on the Democrat's plantation?

Marco Rubio's response to Señor Harry's wildly racist rants are worth a listen:

My suggestion. Run. Escape Señor Reid's plantation. If you are a black-American, White-American, Hispanic-American, or whatever American, and you want to enjoy the opportunities and freedoms of America, drop the hypen and run like the wind.
