Debate moderator to Rubio: How’s it feel to be anti-Latino?

posted at 2:38 pm on October 20, 2010 by Ed Morrissey

Florida politics have gotten ugly, haven’t they? A Democratic incumbent calls his Republican opponent a member of the Taliban, and now the son of a Cuban immigrant is not just called anti-immigration, but anti-Latino.  And this time it’s not Charlie Crist who sets himself up as the arbiter of Hispanic authenticity, but the debate moderator.  Greg Hengler clips this dreadful question and memorable response from Rubio:

It seems to escape the intellectual capacity of Rubio’s opponents, and many on the Left, that one can be pro-immigration while demanding and end to illegal immigration.  Marco Rubio makes this point very clearly and concisely by demanding the rule of law apply not just to Americans but also those who want to enter our country.  It’s hardly anti-Latino to demand equal treatment under the law, and to demand that the federal government fulfill one of its actual Constitutional duties in securing the nation’s borders.

Basically, the moderator called Rubio a bigot.  Rubio responded with a lot more class than he was afforded.

Supporting English as an official language is anti-Latino? These people never stop insulting Latinos.

Wow. They are absolutely unhinged.

fossten on October 20, 2010 at 2:42 PM

I admire non-white conservatives so much because they have to endure this kind of bullsh*t.

Meanwhile, the liberal media thinks nothing of the idiocy that Democratic politicians support, even though if we proposed it to our parents as children, most of our parents would ground us until we got some common sense.

Good lord. That wasn’t a question, it was a full-fledged DNC attack ad.

changer1701 on October 20, 2010 at 2:45 PM

I about choked with Crist and his “ObamaCare is just horrendous. Oh what a mistake. Oh this is just terrible.”. After he finds out how it’s polling this week. Rubio on stage here is like Einstein with two Mortimer Snerds, to borrow from an old I Love Lucy.

I’m surprised Rubio was able to keep from throwing something at the “moderator.”

Too bad Rubio didn’t ask the ‘moderator’ “How long have you been a shill for the DNC?”

GarandFan on October 20, 2010 at 2:47 PM

I loved this question from the debate…

“Mr. Crist, some say that you are flippant, arrogant, convenient, a weather vane to polls, and orange. How do you respond to those charges?”

Oh wait… Charlie is becoming a Democrat, so that was never asked.

beatcanvas on October 20, 2010 at 2:47 PM

“How do you explain that you support the nations laws?”

the_nile on October 20, 2010 at 2:47 PM

As a Hispano, that question offends me, to be honest. I stand with the likes of Cesar Chavez that a legal, effective, enforceable, and ENFORCED immigration law is PRO-HISPANIC, not anti-Hispanic.

A system that deprives legal hispanic Americans of job opportunities at a fair wage–which illegal immigration does–is nothing if not detrimental to those same people. The problem is that the entitlement mentality has it all backwards. Giving hispanics freebies, keeping them impoverished, and lumping them together with illegal aliens of hispanic heritage is unfair to Hispanic Americans, patronizing to us, and as condescending as the day is long. Do what Rubio says and Hispano-Americans will elevate themselves without the crutch of government.

The reason Rubio ALWAYS knocks these things out of the park is simple. He believes what he stands for. When you believe what you say, it’s easy to defend.

Hugh Hewitt, who has interviewed scores and scores and scores of politicians, says Rubio is the most charismatic politician he has ever interviewed.

aquaviva on October 20, 2010 at 2:49 PM

It’s interesting how the moderator thinks enforcing the law is anti-Latino. That seems to indicate that he thinks Latinos are basically criminal, unable to understand or avoid breaking our laws, and that no Latino person is capable of meeting the criteria for a legal immigration visa.

I am forced to conclude that the moderator of this debate is a horrible racist.

Inkblots on October 20, 2010 at 2:49 PM

I can’t believe this.

Seriously, I can’t.

This won’t affect the election, but the desperation is… I can only assume that Democrat Desperation is going to split off and become a fully actualized horror before long.

Scott H on October 20, 2010 at 2:50 PM

How come Mexican drug lords are never called anti-Latino?

How come the Mexican government, which enforces its border and denies illegal immigration in its own country is never called anti-Latino?

How come Lefties who want nothing more from minorities (in this case hispanics) than their vote and continue policies to keep them poor and uneducated are never called anti-Latino?

How come members of La Raza and MEchA are never called anti-everybody else?

Who is the moderator? That town hall link is not working.

The entire debate process is out of hand. It’s controlled by libtools, and if not, the dems will boycott.

It’s even worse here in MA, where an “independent” 3rd paty clown goes to the debate and takes the heat off the dem by focusing the debate on the GOP candidate.

Just so many ways that the Dems/media try to slant elections.

But if a private citizen wears a Don’t Tread on Me pin, watch out!

How do explain sanity to the insane?
I have no answer for that one.
On another note:
what does it mean to be Latino anyway?
This ethnic group is not really any kind of definable gene pool at all.
So why do Hispanics get their own ‘racial’ designation?
It’s a bunch of crap.
Race means nothing.
All it means is that you are part of one inbred gene pool or part of another inbred gene pool.
And since we are all inbred anyway, who in the he!! cares which ‘race’ you are anyway?
The concept of race will change, just like the concept of species is changing with our new understanding of genes & gene pools.

NoDonkey on October 20, 2010 at 2:58 PM

Presumably, Miami is liberal-biased in Florida (as most major cities are). However… Miami has a very large Cuban area. I think people are (risibly) attacking Rubio’s ethnicity not because of some long-term ‘race traitor’ idea, but just to try to win the election. If Rubio does well (as in, can split it) in Miami, there’s absolutely no way he’ll lose, I think.

Scott H on October 20, 2010 at 2:58 PM

Rubio’s answer was not only perfect but honest.

BTW: What’s up with the Obama health care rally BS at the end of the clip? That had nothing to do with the debate.

This is the new trend in politics. Conservative candidates now have to debate both their opponents AND the moderator. I’m not a huge O’Donnell fan, but in that first debate she had to spar with Coons and the TWO moderators. Simply ridiculous.

lorien1973 on October 20, 2010 at 3:07 PM

Let’s see. lets start with this assumption that: Being anti-illegal and pro-English language is racist against Latinos.

This is true, only if I presume that all Latinos are illegals, and none of them speak English. i.e. if I believe stereotypes instead of thinking of them as individuals; and assume every single person of an ethnicity is identical.

Weird. Maybe starting with a position that doesn’t require stereotypes and bigotry for the basis of the argument would be a better position for a “moderator” of a debate.

canopfor on October 20, 2010 at 3:09 PM

I know my Marco can handle the Orangeman, but Kendrick got in a couple good jabs, too …

While Crist kept attacking Rubio, the governor found himself having to fend off attacks from Meek, who remains mired in third place.

At one point in the debate, Crist used the term “Obamacare” when discussing health-care reform. Meek, an unapologetic supporter of the president’s health-care law, said he was amazed the governor referred to it in such a derisive manner.

“I’m just shocked to hear the new lingo from the governor talking about Obamacare,” Meek said. “I wonder if he said that to the president when he was walking with him on the beach [following the Gulf oil spill].”

“When we were on the beach, we were protecting Florida,” Crist replied. “And that’s what I talked to him about.”

“But you are for offshore drilling,” Meek interrupted.

“No I’m not,” the governor said. “I’m opposed to it.”

“Oh, now you are,” Meek said mockingly. “I don’t know, you were there with Sarah Palin a couple years ago saying, `Drill baby drill.’”

“I never said `Drill baby drill,” Crist said somewhat exasperated.

“You were clapping,” Meek snapped.

“I was there to support my friend John McCain,” Crist offered, clearly tired of the exchange.

In that moment, not even the fan could save him.

Crist’s picture is next to “despicable” in the dictionary.

Well, it sounds better than:
“Here’s an anonymous smear I heard or thought up and am attributing to others”

Although it really isn’t functionally or logically different. Unless you’re naming names and clarifying you’re quoting them directly; you’re just trying some CYA… and not well.

And even if you do name them, you’re giving time and a microphone to their opinion… why would you do that if you didn’t think it was a valid position?

I’m not seeing this as much of a defense at all; but you know it’ll be the first one he goes with… assuming this gets him in trouble.

Actually with Cuban immigration, it’s often the other way around. For example my parents came to this country from Cuba in 1960, but it wasn’t until the 1970′s that they were able to get my father’s parents out of Cuba.
