The Iowa congressman is leading an anti-amnesty posse with a lot in common: whiteness, maleness, 50 plus-ness, Republican-ness. Oh yeah, and they're against the immigration reform bill.
There is no need for racist name calling by ABC & Univision.

If Univision wants to play the race card I would like to ask them isn't there a lot of " ethnocentric brownness and Democratness/leftist liberalism in the pro-amnesty movement? Pot, kettle, black.

It isn't just elderly, white males who opppose shamnesty either.

If Republicans and right wingers want us to stop playing the race card, they probably should stop dealing them to us.

Please don't misunderstand. I don't mean all liberals are for shamnesty. That's why I said Democrat/leftist liberals. I know where you stand on this issue and I commend you for it.

Thank you; to me, ideological consistency has nothing to do with political orthodoxy.

I am sure there are those from all walks of life that make up the "30%" that oppose shamnesty as you put it.

Uh huh, Bush tried to pull this a few years ago and objecting Americans shut down the phone lines to congress in protest so it didn't happen and it won't this time around either especially with 23 million Americans out of work. That's more accurate than any poll.
