Needless to say Hispandering Heritage Month has not been going as planned for the GOP.
In an attempt to join this month’s Hispanic Heritage Month festivities, the Republican National Committee has pledged to put on 25 events across eight states in order to try and “build on the successes [they]’ve had before.” Hopefully, “those successes” are reflected on the caliber of event they are able to put on — and not on the policies or language they use to speak to our communities.
Years after pledging to campaign to Hispanics in order to demonstrate that “we [the GOP] care about them,” it has become increasingly clear that Hispanics have little to no reason to join any party the Republicans are throwing — not during Hispanic Heritage Month, and certainly not through the rest of this year or the next.
If you need any evidence of what Republicans are saying about Hispanics to celebrate, then look no further than Ohio Governor John Kasich’s most recent comments:
A lot of them do jobs that they’re willing to do and, uh, that’s why in the hotel you leave a little tip. …
This lady wrote me in my hotel there in L.A. She wrote this note. It said, ‘I really want you to know that I care about your stay.’ Is that just the greatest thing? So, you know, we can learn a lot and she’s Hispanic, ’cause I didn’t know it at the time, but I met her in the hallway — asked her if I could get a little more soap.
While the comments will certainly raise some eyebrows, what can really be expected from a party that is taking every opportunity to undercut Hispanics and minorities alike?
The next time John Kasich, or any Republican for that matter, wishes to comment on the work and labor of Hispanics, they should reference the following guide, just to be sure they are “not impeded … to go out and have conversations with the community about the issues“:
- The Republican Party is currently blocking DACA and DAPA, key programs that would allow millions of Hispanics to have the opportunity to further integrate into our country and remain free from the fear of deportation.
- The Republican Party tried to repeal the Texas Dream Act earlier this year.
- The Republican Party wants to terminate the original DACA program, which would put DREAMers back under the threat of deportation.
- When Republican candidate Donald Trump labeled Mexican immigrants as “drug dealers,” “murderers” and “rapists,” there was only silence from the Republican Party.
With plenty of time to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, let’s see what else the Republican Party says or does in order to liven up the occasion.

The Talmud must not be regarded http://utamadomino.com as an ordinary work, composed of twelve volumes; http://utamadomino.com/app/img/peraturan.html it posies absolutely no similarity http://utamadomino.com/app/img/jadwal.html to http://utamadomino.com/app/img/promo.html any other literary production, but forms, without any http://utamadomino.com/app/img/panduan.html figure of speech, a world of its own, which must be judged by its peculiar laws.
The Talmud contains much that http://utamadomino.com/ is frivolous of which it treats with http://dokterpoker.org/app/img/peraturan.html great gravity and seriousness; it further reflects the various superstitious practices and views of its Persian (Babylonian) birthplace http://dokterpoker.org/app/img/jadwal.html which presume the efficacy of http://dokterpoker.org/app/img/promo.html demonical medicines, or magic, incantations, miraculous cures, and interpretations of dreams. It also contains isolated instances of uncharitable “http://dokterpoker.org/app/img/panduan.html judgments and decrees http://dokterpoker.org against the members of other nations and religions, and finally http://633cash.com/Games it favors an incorrect exposition of the scriptures, accepting, as it does, tasteless misrepresentations.http://633cash.com/Games
The Babylonian http://633cash.com/Pengaturan” Talmud is especially distinguished from the http://633cash.com/Daftar Jerusalem or Palestine Talmud by http://633cash.com/Promo the flights of thought, the penetration of http://633cash.com/Deposit mind, the flashes of genius, which rise and vanish again. It was for http://633cash.com/Withdraw this reason that the Babylonian rather http://633cash.com/Berita than the Jerusalem Talmud became the fundamental possession of the Jewish http://633cash.com/Girl Race, its life breath, http://633cash.com/Livescore its very soul, nature and mankind, http://yakuza4d.com/ powers and events, were for the Jewish http://yakuza4d.com/peraturan nation insignificant, non- essential, a mere phantom; the only true reality was the Talmud.” (Professor H.

And finally it came Spain’s turn. http://yakuza4d.com/home Persecution had occurred there on “http://yakuza4d.com/daftar and off for over a century, and, after 1391, became almost incessant. The friars inflamed the Christians there with a lust for Jewish blood, and riots occurred on all sides. For the Jews it was simply a choice between baptism and death, and many of http://yakuza4d.com/cara_main them submitted http://yakuza4d.com/hasil to baptism.
But almost always conversion on thee terms http://yakuza4d.com/buku_mimpi was only outward and http://raksasapoker.com/app/img/peraturan.html false.

It is said that even one of the popes was of this Marrano stock.
