The Conservative Hispanic Society released the following statement moments ago.

Governor Bill Richardson owes Latinos an apology

On ABC this weekend, former New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson made a repugnant comment.

http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2013/05/05/bill_richardson_on_ted_cruz_i_dont_think_he_should_be_defined_as_a_hispanic.html

In a response to the question, “Do you think he (Senator Ted Cruz) represents most Hispanics with his politics?” Richardson said this:

“No, no. He’s anti-immigration. Almost every Hispanic in the country wants to see immigration reform. No, I don’t think he should be defined as a Hispanic. He’s a politician from Texas.”

The Conservative Hispanic Society condemns, in the strongest terms, Bill Richardson’s attempt to give the extreme left-wing the power to determine who should be defined as “Hispanic”.  We’ve seen this pattern all-to-often from liberals.  The NAACP, allows black conservatives to be savaged while propping up black leftists.  Now, Richardson, a “loud-mouthed leftist Latino” is trying to muzzle a “liberty-loving Latino” like Senator Cruz.

CHS has a message for Governor Richardson:

“The ability to determine who is Hispanic and who isn’t, is beyond your pay-grade.  If you’d attended Mass more often instead of worshiping at the altar of liberalism, you might get that.  CHS demands an apology from the former governor.”

Update: CHS Executive Director Chris Salcedo talks about immigration, President Obama’s trip to Mexico and Bill Richardson’s comments with Andrea Tantaros.

Say, isn't Richardson the guy who dropped out of the '08 Presidential Democratic primary because of the investigation into his corruption? Odd that, because he and Dean were the only two former Governors in the contest.

Lefty's think all identities have a default setting. Morality and opinion is determined at birth, by virtue of DNA. White supremacists (currently marginalized) vie with the Dem Party (currently mainstreamed) for the title of the stupidest racial bigots in America. Ironically, it is identity that prevents Dems from seeing that. If they do a thing, it must be correct rather than, if I do a thing correctly, it is correct. Average I.Q. in the Dem Party probably hovers around 90. Even the KKK aren't stupid enough to think they're anti-racists. What's it like when neo-Nazis are slightly more refined than you are? What a cesspool of stink these groups move in.

Tatler title, "Owens an Apology". Typo.

Personally, I love it when these guys say such offensive things. Such things cannot hurt us, and they can help us.
