Prez candidates vie for deprived, minority status

Tea and crumpets lose out to tortillas, chitlins, latkes, and fry bread

Among 2016 American office seekers a new absurdity is taking hold.  It has suddenly become déclassé to be white or privileged. The need to rid oneself of such foul roots has become as necessary as wiping dog droppings off the soles of your crocodile Gucci’s before venturing into a grande maison.  

Presidential candidates are stumbling over themselves to find a shred of convincing minority status to make themselves more appealing to the voters who put Barack Obama in office —- twice.

If they don’t have actual deprivation credentials, they willingly manufacture them. Thus white-bread, blue-blood candidates like Jeb Bush —- whose mother attended elite schools and can trace her family roots back to President Franklin Pierce —- “mistakenly” registered to vote in 2009 in Florida listing his ethnicity as Hispanic. He also forgot his father’s heritage.  The 41st President George H.W. Bush traces his family back to American colonists, attended the tony Phillips Academy in Andover Massachusetts and followed his own father to Yale.

Now BuzzFeed News is reporting that Hillary Clinton —- whose vocal dexterity enables her to emulate what she regards as a “black accent” at will —– has devised her own bogus heritage saying “all of my grandparents, you know, came over here.”  Videos and documentation on BuzzFeed reveal an entirely different set of facts.

“Her grandparents always spoke about the immigrant experience and, as a result she has always thought of them as immigrants,” a Clinton spokesman attempted to feed BuzzFeed News.

Since Hillary’s lie was laid bare, that equally deceptive answer should settle the deliberate pretense, or so she hopes.

Hillary will do whatever she thinks it takes to sway votes her way. CBS News reported that while campaigning for a U.S. senate seat in 1999, she even contrived a Jewish grandfather in New York City where she thought such a revelation could help her garner votes. Max Rosenberg was later revealed as her grandmother’s second husband with no blood line connecting him to the desperately hilarious Hillary.

Although Jeb Bush’s outlandish ethnic claim appears to be an anomaly among Republicans, Democrat woman have cornered the market on such bizarre declarations. As far back as 1986, while she was still a professor at the University of Texas Law School, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren intentionally requested special treatment by falsely self-identifying as a “Minority Law Teacher.” Breitbart fills in the gaping holes of her absurd story alleging Native American status. 

This morning Wayne Allyn Root, writing for Townhall compares Hillary to Richard Nixon calling her “Tricky Dicky Hillary.” The comparison is unfair to Nixon —- a Quaker who was raised in a family with five boys that barely scraped by, in a 900-square foot home his father built from a mail-order kit.  Nixon didn’t have to contrive a hardscrabble history.

Going into this campaign season, we’re going to need very large scoreboards to keep track of the impoverished candidates and their ethnic whoppers.

    The Bush family has been described as “the most successful political dynasty in American history.”
    That’s not what I want running our country. Besides being a practiced liar, I also reject Jeb for his view on the illegal invasion of the USA being “an act of love.”

  2. SmallGovt says:

    Hillary needs to be called out about the many reports of her lesbianism and the huge fees and expensive travel expenses she has charged before, during, and after her stint as Secretary of State. When she is questioned directly she always breaks.

  3. Kimball says:

    Hillary has had plenty of experience lying. The Benghazi cover-up and her insane screeching at the congressional hearing spring immediately to mind.

    …is the following picture photoshopped or is it real?

    Mitt romney tried self deportation in 2012. Here is the problem the republican party has won the popular vote once since 1988. That was in 2004 when kerry and the unions were ambivalent on immigration and bush got 44% of hispanic vote. Democrats won’t let that happen again. Nearly 85% of white non gay males already vote republican and the other 15% are ungettable. Also 5,000,000 more minority kids turn voting age every presidential election cycle. The republican corporate establishment is terrified by these demographics. That is why juan bush put down hispanic on his voter registration card even though this is a felony. What is your solution to stop minority american citizens who have ids from voting?

    • Villanova says:

      You expose yourself all too clearly by capitalizing Democrat and repeatedly using lower case for Republican. There’s no point in attempting to have a dialogue with a closed mind.

      Incidentally, the “corporate establishment” you obviously disdain is neither Democrat or Republican.   It’s clear you prefer socialism to capitalism.

    • ZOO says:

      “..Kerry and the unions were ambivalent on immigration..” – (?)

      I’m afraid your lack of knowledge about recent history has tripped you up. The 37th annual convention of La Raza was held right here in Phoenix in June 2004 and both Kerry and Bush were guest speakers. Kerry jumped right out of the gate comparing modern day “struggle” [Reconquista] of Hispanics to the Civil Rights battle of the 1960s.

      Synchronous with this pander-fest was Arizona’s first effort to combat the illegal immigration invasion with Proposition 200. The AFL-CIO was lip-locked with McCain, Kyl, Napolitano etal in opposition, hardly a state of ambivalence.

      If GWB got 44%, that means Kerry got 56%. Bush pulled a slightly higher percentage than normal for Republicans because he had been letting chorus lines of Mexican illegals twerk across the border (over 9,000,000 during his first 5 years in office) while he stood on a bolder waiving them in like Charlton Heston.

      For months you seem to have been hinting that conservative Republicans should bend over and spread’em for illegal immigration and amnesty, now your asking how they intend to stop American citizens from voting. Admittedly your statements straddle the line between a genuine concern and a facetious leftist giddy from rubbing it in. How about sidelining the platitudes and state your true position?

      • jon jensen says:

        My position is making the hispanics angry by threats and name calling so they vote against Republicans is bad for business including mine. Unlike some here I have no wish to go down on the anti-immigration titanic or move to Idaho. They would just follow me there. Making latinos really angry so when their votes swing elections here in the not to distant future, this is not good for conservatism. But you must disagree.

      • Matt DeGennaro says:

        I’ll let ZOO answer for himself, but if I read you right, you are willing to surrender to and financially support those who disrespect our rule of law and national sovereignty in order not to make them “really angry” and allow your business to continue to flourish. Aren’t there enough American citizens who frequent your business?

        Referring to invaders as illegals is not “name calling.” It is a fact. Unlike Hillary, ALL of my grandparents were actual immigrants to the US. They came through Ellis Island and were not criminals. They were proud to be Americans, worked hard and insisted their kids make good grades and get educated, My father and his siblings were all college graduates. They lived at home and worked while in school — even contributing what they could to the household, but they had their priorities straight.

        Would you at least agree that the Mexican illegals should have to abide by the same restrictions here as Mexico imposes on its own illegals where native-born Mexicans are empowered to make citizens’ arrests of illegal aliens and turn them in to authorities.

        Thanks jon! Actually “anti-immigration titanic” would have been enough, but I appreciate that you Paul Harvey-ed us with ‘the rest of the story.’ Someday I hope you will explain how conservatism and socialism coexist.

    The above comments by SRAZ are so interesting when you see the games being played by the candidates running away from their real heritage. How sad things have become in order to pander (outright lie) to minority groups to get votes.

    So far, so good with the other GOP presidential aspirants – but the minute one does it – he/she goes off the list.

    It’s interesting that the Clinton’s are the original birthers. They started the story that Obama was born in Kenya. Now Hillary is lying about her background – Jewish roots, two sets of grandparents who came “over” from Europe – to “relate” to voters and it’s not true.
    Her Iowa jaunt was a debacle from beginning to end – stage-managed from beginning to end to the point that it’s nothing but laughable. She sits at the appointed table with a handpicked quartet of “regular folks” and nods her head up and down – tells them she wants to be their “champion” and leaves. There’s nothing “real” about her body language or her fake background.

    How could anyone want this for president screeched when GWBush was in office?

    • Matt DeGennaro says:

      How right you are. When I was growing up, we aspired to getting a good education and creating opportunities for ourselves through our own efforts since we knew that those were the steps to a better life. Now those who have had generational prosperity and advantages run from their own heritages as though they were suspect. Jeb Bush obviously thinks speaking Spanish and being married to a Mexican makes him Hispanic. Today if you were fortunate enough to have family success those with less distrust you instead of wanting to emulate you. They often want both necessities and success gifted to them. Our government has taught them well. It began with Dem President Lyndon Johnson’s so called “Great Society” that made fathers irrelevant by increasing welfare payments based on the number of illegitimate babies teenage mamas could turn out. The result was the decimation of the black family unit. Democrats can be very proud of the destruction they produced.

    I lived through the Nixon years and still admire him. The media was after him from Day One christening him “Tricky Dick.” He did not orchestrate the Watergate break-in nor did he participate in it. In today’s world, given the same set of circumstances, he would still be in office. The one who should be impeached is Barack Hussein Obama, who is putting Americans at risk of grave danger with his imposition of federal overreaches, loony liberal policies of appeasement towards our global enemies and refusal to SEAL (not “secure” as in McCain double speak) our border though which terrorists have easy access. All that matters to Obama is changing the makeup of the USA to a brown Democrat majority. Since he has no respect for our Constitution it’s fine with him if the population shifts to a majority of those who believe in re-conquering the United States for Mexico. That’s what the Aztlan / MEChA/ Reconquista movement is all about. Read this for just a bit of background. Our tax dollars are funding anti-American studies in Tucson Unified School District, throughout California and God knows where else.
