IN NEWS THAT WILL DRIVE THE ANTI-LATINO RIGHT WING EXTREMISTS TOTALLY OFF THE EDGE:
Just ONE DAY after the GOP suffered a HUMILIATING Presidential DEFEAT that spotlighted the party's UNPOPULARITY with LATINOS, Fox News star Sean Hannity announced that his position on undocumented immigrants had "EVOLVED" and he now supports a pathway to citizenship. (SEE VIDEO).
Musing on his radio show about how his party could convince Latinos to switch parties, Hannity proposed a solution: "We've gotta get rid of the immigration issue altogether. It's simple for me to fix it. I think you control the border first, you create a pathway for those people that are here, you don't say you gotta home. And that is a position that I've evolved on. Because you know what--it just--it's gotta be resolved. The majority of people here--if some people have criminal records you can send' em home--but if people are here, law-abiding, participating, four years, their kids are born here... first secure the border, pathway to citizenship... then it's done. But you can't let the problem continue. It's gotta stop."
His declaration comes amid a wave of Republican soul-searching in the wake of Tuesday's loss. One of the central takeaways of the election was that the GOP has a serious demographics problem. Minorities -- Latinos, Blacks and Asians -- are NOT voting for them. Hannity & Fox pundits acknowledge that Republicans’ harsh rhetoric against Immigration (eg: Mass Self Deportation and Racial Profiling) has particularly offended Latinos. They realize that is they don’t change their agenda against Latinos, they will never win another election.
All of this hand-wringing by Hannity and Fox has to be killing the racist ANTIs like FAIR, Numbers USA, Alipac, Many in the Tea Party and others. I’m curious as to what John Tanton, Roy Beck, Tancredo, Pat Buchanan, Steve King, Arpaio, Brewer and William Gheen have to say about Hannity & Fox’s change in attitude. I know it’s killing them!
