The drive-by media is desperately trying to prove that Eric Cantor lost in the primary because he’s Jewish, never mind the fact that the same 7th district in Virginia had elected him repeatedly before, despite knowing that he was Jewish. The truth is a little different:
And no, the image doesn’t mean Cantor lost because racist. It means that he lost because, despite calling himself a Republican and putting up a decent defense against Obama in 2009, Cantor’s position on amnesty has become indistinguishable from Obama’s. When that’s combined with the images of Latin American young people, many of them ill, and many of them manifestly violent gang members, pouring over our southern borders, voters aren’t going to like that.
And no, the immediately preceding statement doesn’t mean Cantor lost because racist. It’s not anti-Hispanic to be deeply troubled when your borders are overrun by lawbreakers carrying disease and crime. It’s also not anti-Hispanic to find it upsetting that your president snubs his nose at the laws he swore to enforce and that your House Majority leader seems to think that’s a fine idea.
