Rep. Steve King Warns Immigrants Come from ‘Violent Civilizations’

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) continues to insult Latinos and that only works against the Republican Party. He is literally vomiting all over the Republican Party and it is quite evident that House Speaker John Boehner can’t control him. He now claims brown immigrants are naturally violent:

He began his nearly half-hour speech here arguing against immigration reform, claiming societies tend to become more violent as one moves farther south in Latin America.“Now think what that is,” King said to the 60 or so attendees at the rally.

“If you bring people from a violent civilization into a less-violent civilization, you’re going to have more violence right? It’s like pouring hot water into cold water, does it raise the temperature or not?”

Univisión Staffer Angelica Artiles Slams Marco Rubio as a ‘Loser’ and ‘Token Slave Boy’

The Republican Party thinks Marco Rubio is their ticket to winning the Hispanic vote, but they had better think twice about that. The Miami Herald reports Angelica Artiles, the assistant to Univisión’s Vice President of News, unloaded on Marco Rubio’s aide, Alex Burgos’ Facebook page, calling the “GOP’s Boy Wonder,” a “loser” and “a token slave boy.” Marco Rubio will deliver the Republican response to President Obama’s State of the Union speech. Um, I wonder why they picked him? Pretty obvious. They did the same thing with New Orleans Gov. Bobby Jindal and it backfired.

“Oh. wow, the loser is going to speak after our President,” Artiles wrote on spokesman Alex Burgos’ Facebook page at 9:33 p.m. Wednesday. “Anything to get publicity. Ask him to do us a favor and stay home that night.”

[...]

She then used a diminutive term for Rubio’s first name, “Marquito,” and proceeded to compare him to a Disney dwarf, a “token slave boy” and a “fool” who was passed over by Republican Mitt Romney on his presidential ticket last November.

Burgos stopped responding, but others took up Rubio’s cause and attacked Artiles for being a “troll,” Internet slang for someone who posts inflammatory statements to gin up responses. The conversation went back and forth in English and Spanish.

“I see that all the mojoncitos [‘little turds’] have come out to defend the principal turd, Marquito,” she wrote in Spanish. “I am laughing all the way to the White House :).” Source

The problem for Marco Rubio is that there are many Hispanics who see him as just that, a token. Someone being played by the party just to appeal to Hispanic voters. I roll my eyes every time I hear him talking about his immigrant parents, who sought a better life for their family and blah, blah, blah.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “I hope this doesn’t harm Obama, but if I was from the United States, I’d vote for Obama.” – Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez.

Chavez also told Reuters:  “Obama is a good guy … I think that if Obama was from Barlovento or some Caracas neighborhood, he’d vote for Chavez,” the president told state TV, referring to a poor coastal town known for the African roots of its population.

Chavez is one of the world’s most strident critics of Washington and his 14 years in office have been characterized by diplomatic spats and insults at the White House.

He called former U.S. President George W. Bush a “drunk” and the “devil.” After an initial overture to Obama came to nothing, he said the new president had disappointed progressives the world over and was the “shame” of Africans.

Cuban Immigrants Heading to US by Way of Panama and Colombia, Not by Solely by Sea

CUBAN IMMIGRANTS HEADING TO US –  Led by smugglers armed with knives and machetes, Mayra Reyes and 14 other Cubans sloshed through swamps and rivers and suffered hordes of mosquitoes as they struggled across the notorious Darien Gap between Panama and Colombia, the only north-south stretch of the Americas to defy road-builders.

After walking for three days, the group reached the foot of a steep, scrubby mountain. There, the smugglers peeled away and told the Cubans they would have to press ahead alone.

“I thought I was going to have a heart attack,” the 32-year-old hairdresser from Havana told The Associated Press. “What the guides did was get us to the mountain, where we had to wait for nightfall while these green and black poisonous frogs got on top of us.”

Hundreds of Cubans like Reyes are taking that arduous new route toward the United States, trekking across the 85 miles (135 kilometers) of steamy tropical jungle that divides Colombia and Panama, through mountains, ravines, and muddy ground teeming with poisonous reptiles, jaguars, wild boars, guerrillas and drug traffickers.
