Newt Gingrich Reaches Out to Spanish Speakers

with 2 comments

As much as we don’t like to admit it, the time has come for Republicans to accept that Hispanics are the fastest growing population group in the United States.   Now, I’m certainly not in favor of illegal immigration, but we need Mexican immigrants in this country.   In my case my four Mexican employees work harder than my other employees, make $3.50 an hour less, and don’t require a lunch break.  This is the work ethic that built this country and as Republicans we need to embrace it.  I was overjoyed today to learn of New Gingrich’s new website to reach out to Hispanic voters.

When you go to The Americano.com, you immediately know that you’re in a site designed to appeal to today’s Hispanic voter.  This is an extremely valuable resource that will allow Hispanics to keep up on conservative issues like Representative Lamar Smith (R-TX) and his tough talk on immigration or Newt Gingrich’s latest appearance on Meet the Press.  Remember, it isn’t only Mexican immigrants that this site is aimed at.  There are all sorts of immigrants coming from South American countries with long traditions of conservative strong man governments.   These are very natural targets for the Republican message.  It isn’t a huge jump from a Noriega or a Pinochet to a Bachmann.

If you meet a Mexican or South American immigrant, do not automatically assume that they are here illegally.  Instead, in a very friendly manner ask them if you can see their papers.  If they are here legally, they should have no trouble showing you their green card.  If the language barrier is too great be sure to use gestures and talk loudly and slowly.  I have found that many Spanish words end in vowels and often times adding a long “o” sound to the end of words, it helps to make you more easily understood by native Spanish speakers.  If we reach out to our friends from the South, we have a very good chance of taking back the White House in 2010.

  1. I am glad Gingrich is reaching out to the Hispanics… most of them are very nice people and I can say that even though I am married to one. The only thing I would have changed is the website name and called it elgringo.org
