Latino CONSERVATIVES Unite!
There’s been a lot of talk lately about real collaboration and organizing of Hispanics among themselves. There are rumblings of an emerging “Tequila Party”, though I don’t think the title lends itself to credibility, and all around there all sorts of brands of Latinos, left and right, calling for our representatives to defend our interests as an ethnic group. While I applaud much of this, I think an important distinction has to be made between how the Left considers us, and how the Right considers us.
The liberal left coddles and panders to ethnic groups, telling them how special they are and that they’ve been victimized by America through institutional, historical and individual racism. It is appealing to the worst in human nature – to pride, envy, covetousness, gluttony and laziness.
This is one of the many reasons I’m proud to be a Conservative Latino. The Right doesn’t say, “you’re different, join us so that you can always be different, and we’ll toss you money!” Rather, it calls on all people to join in a mutual respect and admiration for the principles of the American experiment that has blessed so many for over 230 years. It offers us the opportunity to enjoy liberty and prosperity earned according to our own interests and abilities, and encourages us to pay the obligations we owe to those that came before us, fought and died for us to do so.
In this, the Conservative Right says, “Join us”, not because you are different, but because fundamentally, we are very much the same.
It doesn’t appeal to me as a Hispanic, but as a human being, as a Man with certain duties arising out of the nature of Man. That doesn’t mean I’m not proud of my heritage – I very much am. But I will always choose to belong to the group that respects me primarily as a man, as a Christian, and incidentally as a Latino.
E. Pluribus Unum, Baby, and GOD BLESS AMERICA!!
Oh yeah I almost forgot the whole point of this tirade. I hope to start contributing to the organization of Conservative Latinos according to the precepts named above. I offer this Mexicanization of the GOP logo as evidence of this. I might use it as the insignia for my own nefarious Conservative operations, or start a casual group of hispanics dedicated to reporting and responding to Latino political issues. Dunno yet. Stay tuned!
