While teahadist pig castrator Sen. Joni "Make Them Squeal" Ernst (Tea Party-IA) was giving the official Republican response to the President's State of the Union Address last night, Hispanic Republican Congressman Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-Little Havana) was tapped to give essentially Ernst's rebuttal in Spanish. See if you spot the difference between Cubelo's speech and Ernst's English version.
"We should also work through the appropriate channels to create permanent solutions for our immigration system, modernize legal immigration, and strengthen our economy. In the past, the president has expressed support for ideas like these. Now we ask him to collaborate with us to get it done."
= crickets =That was pretty easy, wasn't it?! Well, to be completely accurate, Ernst did say that "We'll work to correct executive overreach," presumably including the President's Executive Order on immigration. So, the Republican/ New Confederate/Stupid/ White Supremacist Party plan remains to try to undo the President's modest immigration reform executive action. Certainly that's the message they want their white nativist base to hear, while Curbelos' Hispanic audience got a more conciliatory (albeit dishonest) tone.
We're counting on the Republican-wired "mainstream media" to make sure no one will notice the discrepancy.
BONUS: Here's racist crackpot Rep. Steve "Cantaloupe Calves" King (R-Deport 'em) representing the true id of the Republican/ New Confederate/ Stupid/ White Supremacist Party, demonstratingwhy Rep. Curbelo's wan and dishonest attempt to sell his Hispanic audience on Republican "permanent solutions" won't fly.
