Funny stuff on why Patrick didn’t show to Univision debate:
“Sometimes candidates that aren’t fluent in Spanish maybe are concerned about the way that it’s translated, the way that it comes out,” [Bexar Co. GOP Chair Robert] Stovall said. “So it’s probably a good thing he didn’t show up in this case.”
Because there’s only one way to say that immigrants come to the US with “Tuberculosis, Malaria, Polio and Leprosy” or with “third-world diseases,” right, Dan?
Republican Latino outreach – You’re doing it wrong!
On the other hand…”The people need get out and vote because if they don’t vote, we will return to the past.”
As San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro told the world last week, Dan Patrick is the most anti-immigrant Republican out there. He’s probably the worst candidate when it comes to Latino outreach, too.
After finding out that one of my favorite bands, Intocable, didn’t win the Grammy for Best Mexican Regional Album last night, I started watching some of their old videos, among other Latin music videos. At every video, the same thing popped up: “Dan Patrick Opposes In-State Tuition for Illegal Immigrants.”
Well, I already knew that and I agree with Mayor Castro. But if this is Patrick’s idea of Latino outreach, then he’s got some awful consultants out there. I took a pic of the screen last night in case Patrick changes course and begins to place his pop-ups on “Stormfront” videos, instead.
Even funnier is the fact that Intocable, from Zapata, TX, is known for some of their pro-immigrant reform songs and commentary. But at least the Latino electorate knows how Dan Patrick really feels about them.
