“I found that language a bit curious because the president spoke to the Hispanic Caucus, and certainly they’re pushing him on immigration… he certainly didn’t tell them to stop complaining,” she said. “And he would never say that to the gay and lesbian community, who really pushed him on Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.”
I’m really starting to lose patience with grievance hustlers who are perpetually upset that they aren’t getting their “fair share”, especially when they would think nothing of using those same people as a means to further their own power, right up until they decide they don’t need those “others” any longer.
I’m young enough to remember certain ideals that did more to unite us than “Yes We Can!” and “Hope and Change”. Sadly, Maxine seems never to have heard it, or she has grossly misunderstood it. The problem with counting what the other guy’s got is that what you have will never be enough, even if it is all they have.
If she is going to be a myopic marxist scold, I’d prefer that she do it from the ivory towers of academia, where she could then be the first leftist to actually create a job…for her replacement.
