‘The canard about Hispanics being ‘natural conservatives’ comes from the same cliche machine…’
…that gave us the one about blacks being “natural conservatives.” At least blacks really are social conservatives — they just vote Democratic, anyway.
As Charles Murray has pointed out, Hispanics are less likely to go to church or be employed than non-Hispanics.
They are less opposed to gay marriage than everyone else — 44 percent compared to 50 percent.
The poverty rate of second-generation Hispanics is lower than the first — but the third generation’s poverty rate is higher than the second.
Perhaps this has something to do with the fact that Hispanics have the highest illegitimate birthrate in the country. According to the Centers for Disease Control, in 2010, for every 1,000 unmarried Hispanic women, 80.6 had children out of wedlock, compared to 65.3 for unmarried black women and 29 for unmarried white women.
Mexicans don’t want Republicans “reaching out” to them unless the GOP’s hand is full of free stuff.
As I’ve been saying:
Rampant bribery and corruption/bad cops/a shitty legal system/international drug dealing, drunk driving, littering, recreational animal abuse, violent crime, the sexualization of 15 year old girls, an aversion to higher education and the bizarre compulsion to ruin perfectly fine automobiles are NOT “conservative values.”
