The Right's War Against Hispanics

In my new column, which is generating tremendous reader interest and support in Texas, I suggested that the GOP is waging a war against voting rights for Hispanics. Meanwhile, in Washington, the Republican right is waging a war against fair immigration laws for Hispanics. And almost the entire Republican Party opposes jobs programs and healthcare programs that are important to Hispanics and most workers and the poor.

The effect of this will be an even stronger trend of the huge Hispanic population wave towards Democrats, and higher voter turnout of Hispanic voters for Democrats. This raises the chance that Texas turns blue sooner than expected, and raises the chance that Democrats regain control of the U.S. House in 2014.

Demographics are destiny, and if Republicans keep attacking core values and interests of Hispanics, the GOP destiny in coming elections will be as bleak as the GOP destiny in recent elections.
