Mark Zuckerberg and Marco Rubio have become amnesty’s two indistinguishable amigos. They have morphed into Marco Zuckerberg and Mark Rubio.
You’ve heard the radio spots and seen the television ads featuring Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio talking about the dire need to do something about the “immigration problem” (not “illegal immigration” but immigration.)
During a minute’s worth of huffing and puffing, Rubio tries to bulldoze past any logical objections to erasing our borders with faux tough talk designed to impress us with his credentials as an “insider’ who KNOWS more than we do.
Rubio’s media crusade is funded by liberal Facebook billionaire Mark Zuckerberg.
To impress us, Rubio uses buzz phrases like “conservative immigration reform,” “tough border triggers,” and “no giveaways for lawbreakers.” That putting these words in Rubio’s mouth is not only breathtakingly insulting to true conservatives (but simply not true) shouldn’t resonate with a liberal like Zuckerberg; but Rubio has been “playing a conservative on TV” long enough to know better.
These spots betray a gross underestimation of conservatives. Zuckerberg probably believes conservatives marry their sisters and are far less intelligent than he is, but Rubio apparently thinks conservatives are pining for a way to suck up to Hispanics the way white liberals sucked up to blacks and elected Barack Obama.
A new report from Public Policy Polling (a Democrat firm) shows that Rubio is self-immolating with these insulting spots. Conservatives who once saw him as an acceptable GOP nominee for president in 2016 are running away from him in obvious disgust over his decision to do Chuck Schumer’s bidding by erasing our borders.
During the period from May 6 – 9, when asked about Rubio as the Republicans’ 2016 nominee, “very conservative” and “somewhat conservative” respondents supported him at 17% and 18% respectively. That’s down from 26% and 22% from these groups just a month before.
The supreme irony of Marco Rubio’s foolishness is that Hispanics, who hold themselves aloof from participation in our civic life and wait for the best “goodies” package offer before deciding who to support, are naïve enough to believe Rubio’s tough talk and don’t like it. His support among Hispanics has fallen 5% in the same period.
At this point, only wild-eyed liberals like Zukerberg believe that these spots can erase our borders. Nevertheless, a cunning liberal like Schumer might be using these spots as an opportunity to destroy the foolish Mr. Rubio’s chances of ever running for president.
Blurring the lines between “amnesty amigos” Marco Zuckerberg and Mark Rubio will not end well for the Senator from Florida.
