Over at Blogs for Bush, they’re reifying myths about the willful docility of Latinos and gushing about the joy of exploiting them:
the more Hispanics the better – or would you rather have us get a flood of Euro-trash, socialistic weenies emigrating here to demand welfare?…While the race-hustlers of the Democratic Party have been playing a pied-piper tune for Hispanic Americans, trying to get them in on the useless resentments and feelings of entitlement they have laid out for other American minorities, the plain, hard fact that Hispanic Americans are enthusiastic volunteers for the American dream has made them a tough nut for the Democrats to crack.
