Conservative + Hispanic = Coconut?

Apparently Donny Deutsch thinks so. He labeled Marco Rubio as such on Joy Behar’s show.

To be fair, he now says that he didn’t know that the term was a racial slur when he uttered it. Do you believe him? I don’t. The reason I don’t is that this fits into a pattern we’ve seen time and again.

If you don’t believe what they believe, you get tagged with an undesirable label. Racist, Nazi, Teabagger. And that’s just the polite stuff for any generic conservative.

The real venom is directed at those “persons of color” who dare break ranks with the leftist agenda. I won’t repeat those slurs here, but for a quick primer on how vile it can get just take a peek at what they say about Condi Rice.

The bad news for them is that the conservative tent is growing, and many of the entrants are, how shall I put it……not white. Gasp! Horror! INCONCEIVABLE!

Don’t believe it? Go stick your head back in the sand then. Meanwhile, we find that fully one half of Texas Hispanics consider themselves conservative! Holy Churros Batman! The details:

…more than half of Texas Hispanics call themselves conservative, and a surprising 23 percent say they might participate in Tuesday’s GOP primary.

How can this be, you might ask? Lydia Camarillo, vice president of the nonpartisan Southwest Voter Registration Education Project has the answer:

The poll found that only 18 percent of Texas Hispanics say they’re liberal or progressive, while 54 percent say they’re conservative, moderate conservative or religiously conservative.

But Camarillo said many Hispanics who identify themselves as conservative aren’t talking about “less taxes, less government,” the way white conservatives would.

“When a Latino says that he or she is conservative, they’re thinking about how they are raising the kids and … the family,” she said. “It’s more about work ethic, and that when you give your word, you give your word. Those kinds of things are what they’re thinking of. It’s a different frame of mind, and pollsters have yet to define it.”

Oh I see it now. Hispanics are too dumb to understand what the word “conservative” means and they need it to be explained to them. They couldn’t possibly know what conservative really means, and self-identify with those values. No-way.

Listen up Lady: Hispanics don’t need you (or anyone else) to tell them the definitions of liberal or conservative. They know the difference!

Now go chew on that for a while and come up with something better. Maybe you should call Donny. No doubt he will say:

“They are all Coconuts. Just like Marco Rubio.”
