Huckabee: Hispanics Offer U.S. 'Second Chance'

Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said Wednesday the nation is being given a chance to make up for past racism by the way it handles the influx of Hispanics.

Huckabee, a Republican who is considering a run for president in 2008, said Arkansas has made progress on racial justice and has a fresh opportunity to do the right thing in the way it welcomes the growing Hispanic population... [More]

"One of the great challenges facing us is that we do not commit the same mistakes with our growing Hispanic population that we did with African Americans 150 years ago and beyond. We're still paying the price for the pathetic manner in which this country handled that," Huckabee said at a meeting of the Political Animals Club in Little Rock. The club meets monthly to hear from political figures and experts.

"I think frankly the Lord is giving us a second chance to do better than we did before," Huckabee said.

Ahhh, but Huck is banking on amnesty being rammed through by the '08 election. His plan is to ascend to the throne and preside over millions of freshly naturalized criminals and patch up racial relations (though the only racial tension has come from the hugely unpopular insistence on amnesty, which most legal immigrants are also against).

I don't care if amnesty is somehow passed, I will not support any candidate who was on record as having supported it, and I will support anyone who promises to repeal it.

If the president gets his amnesty, the GOP can kiss their base goodbye. Huckabee and the other open border Republicans should start their own party or join the Democrat party.

The GOP doesn't WANT a base comprised of religious conservatives who try to hold the leadership accountable. It's obvious that Christians don't have a welcome in either major party.

I feel more at home in the Republican party as a Christian than I would in the Democrat party. There is absolutely nothing Christian about the Democrat party!

What's "Christian" about the Republican party, other than that Rove & company hoodwink Christians into supporting them every election cycle?

Hey Huck: The blacks were brought here against their will. No one asked the illegals to come here. In fact, we're asking them to leave or be deported.

And it's more than just Mexicans who are here illegally. There are also Asians, white Europeans, and others. You're assumption that all illegals are Mexican shows your hypocritical racist views.

Border enforcement isn't only a Christian issue. Keeping invaders out is a hugely popular issue that transcends all sorts of political ideological lines.

Imagine that- people want their constitution enforced. The GOP can't even do that, but they can unconstitutionally kill off a bunch of our soldiers trying to do it half way around the world for other peoples' countries.

Illegal immigration is not Christian:

Illegal immigration in America is a system where the poor are exploited by a few greedy millionares like the CEO of Tyson Foods.
People die of poverty and are being forced to leave their homeland because of lazy corrupt regimes like the Mexican "government".
This exploitation economy also depends on the middle class worker being held responsible for the poverty of illegals and fooled into paying for them with their hard earned tax money.
And lets not forget that illegal immigration also brings us drug smuggling, criminals, and leaves us open to terrorism.

Here's an article I wrote when Hillary Clinton claimed it was Christian to help the illegal alien agenda:

And what a profane little person you are. Of course he does not say, "illegal aliens". He is not honest enough to say what he really means. Much like abortion backers call themselves "pro-choice", Huckabee lumps illegal aliens in with legitimate foreign born persons by refering to them all as "immigrants". That's because he is trying to control the debate by defining the terms.

It is a measure of his duplicty and unwillingness to have an honest discussion on it. That is why he blurs things with broadened labels and plays the race card. Disgusting.
