RUSH: Remember Senator Graham, Lindsey Graham? I forget the exact words. We played the sound bite yesterday. But he basically said — correct me if I’m wrong, but he essentially said — that we have to do this because Hispanics hate us and we’ve gotta show them that we don’t hate them. It’s a paraphrase, but his motivation was that. It was on one of the Sunday shows. His declared motivation for this was the fact that Hispanics hate us. They think we’re racists and bigots who don’t like them. We hate them, don’t want them here. They don’t think we care.
He says we gotta show ’em that isn’t the case and that’s why he wants to pass amnesty. Yeah, he said you can write off 2016, and you can write off any presidential race after that. I want to take that line of thinking and expand upon it. If one of the main reasons for passing the Gang of Eight immigration bill is so Republicans can prove that they don’t hate Hispanics, then what’s next? Are the Republicans going to have to support gay marriage to prove that they don’t hate gays?
Are the Republicans then going to have to support affirmative action to prove they don’t hate blacks? And then are they going to have to support legalization of marijuana and forgiving student loans to prove they don’t hate college kids? And so on. And it’s very difficult, folks, to out-liberal a liberal. Here. Senator Graham said, “The only way we can get back in the good graces of the Hispanic community, in my view, is to pass comprehensive immigration reform.”
I’m only reacting to Senator Graham. Maybe the big one, women supposedly hate us, right, because of abortion. And you can’t win the presidency without the female vote. This is what we’re gonna hear. What do we have to do to make the women realize we don’t hate ’em? Change our attitude on abortion? Where does this stuff stop? If this is the reason that we do immigration reform, then there’s a whole list of things that you and I know that it is said Republicans are hated. Women hate us, blacks hate us, the gays hate us, Native Americans don’t like us, Hispanics don’t like us. What do we have to do to make them all like us? Because, see, we don’t even have a chance of them voting for us until they like us. Now, McCain was pro-amnesty. You couldn’t get more pro-amnesty than McCain.
