Dance, Mr. Bojangles, Dance!!!! Ted Cruz And Leftards!

So, for those who haven’t seen it, yet ….. NBC/MSNBC/Bloomberg talking head, Mark Halperin, did some rather disgusting, insulting, jackassery in an interview with presidential hopeful Ted Cruz. 

I’ll give the link so people can watch the interview, but, essentially, Halperin was trying to question the bonafides of Cruz’ ethnicity.  The jackass actually asked Cruz to welcome the socialist Sanders to the presidential race in Spanish!!!!!

Yes, that would mean a lot to a life long resident of Vermont, right?  Here’s the meat of it …

Halperin: Senator, people are really interested in you and your identity. I just wanted to ask you as a historical matter, when you filled out your application to Princeton, to Harvard Law School, did you list yourself as an Hispanic?

Cruz: I listed myself as Cuban-American. That’s my heritage and my background.

Halperin: I want to close by talking a little more about your Cuban heritage, and ask you in the following categories if you have an affinity for or a connection to anything part of your Cuban past, do you have a favorite Cuban food… Cuban dish?

Cruz: Oh, I grew up eating Cuban food all the time, I…

[Halperin immediately cuts him off to hammer the question]

Halperin: What’s your favorite dish?

[Cruz answers with a litany of food from his childhood, and customs his family enjoyed during the holidays.]

Halperin: Alright… do you like Cuban music. Do you have a favorite Cuban Singer?

Cruz: You know I have to admit in that I’m much more of a Texan. I tend to listen to country music more than Cuban music. …

Halperin: Finally, I wanted to give you the opportunity to welcome your colleague Senator Sanders to the race and I’d like you to do it, if you would, en Espanol.

WTF???

I got that bit from Breitbart, you can watch the interview at the link.

Interlude!!!!

A note to the idiot writers at Breitbart:  It isn’t racism, you idiots, it’s ethnic, not race!  Shock news!!!!  Hispanics are Caucasian!!!!  Except for the ones of African descent.  

 

But, isn’t it interesting that the left’s obsession with this ethnic bloc is so extreme that they think nothing of asking people of such heritage to do or say something Hispanic or Cuban?  That would be akin to me seeing a guitar player of Hispanic origin and asking him to play some Mariachi stuff.  It’s a form of prejudice, plain and simple. 

I know it’s shocking to the left, but, one can be of Hispanic origin and not speak a lick of Spanish, just like people can be of Irish origin and not speak a lick of Gaelic.  Weird, I know.  Blame the Kennedys.

This is the leftard mindset.  They put everyone in a box, and they’re expected to act, speak, eat, and live in a particular fashion.  You can’t truly be Irish if you’re not Catholic, right?  And, you can’t truly be Italian if you avoid pasta, right?  And, you can’t really be Hispanic if your back isn’t wet.  But, you certainly can be Native American if you have high cheek bones and embrace leftism.  What a bunch of scumbags!

Mr. Bojangles, Dance.

 

Halperin saw how swift this was running and issued a non-apology/apology for his jackassery.  Cruz was gracious and accepted.

One day, I look forward to Cruz having a great relationship with the UK’s leader, Farage, much like Reagan and Thatcher.

    I enjoy bananas, and trees. Is that because of my ape ancestors? 😉

    you know….these stupid liberals need to get a grip
    …they should hang around down here and see how we really talk to each other

    I grew up in the south….with some weird Cuban connections
    What people do not realize is Cuba used to be south Alabama…and Alabama was north Cuba
    We all went back and forth because of dairy and beef cattle.

      It’s funny, really. Zero doesn’t know what he’s doing. They open up just a little bit more, and Cuba won’t be able to stop it!

      My father was born and raised in Miami, and used to go to Cuba every summer with his High School marching band. He loved Havanna, and used to tell me how beautiful Cuba was. His mother lived amongst the Cubans in Miami until she could no longer live on her own, and I remember being introduced to black beans and rice there, as well as a next door neighbor’s chimpanzee that they kept chained to a dog house.

      Speaking of weird Cuban connections. My parents had friends, that I believe they met through grandma, who were gay. It was a real ‘Odd Couple’. One was a very proper and domestic white guy (Felix), and the other was a very excitable ex-baseball player from Cuba (Oscar). ‘Oscar’ (a cross between Buddy Hacket and Desi Arnaz) spoke broken English at a breakneck speed, with wide eyes and wild gestures. One of the funniest things I ever witnessed was during a visit to Miami with friends from France. ‘Oscar’ was trying to explain baseball to our French friends, who were not fluent in English, in his broken breakneck speed English. I wish I had that on film, it was true a comedy classic.

        LOL…..gat that sounds like the Miami I grew up in!
        I miss it……

        • gator69 says:

          Sadly, Miami is not what it once was, and I have no desire to go back. Dad lived there during its golden age, and I was blessed to get a glimpse of that in my youth, but it is the Chicago of the tropics now.

      Heh, replete with a town of 500 called Cuba, AL, on the MS border :P.

      @ James, thanks for the vid of Mr. Bojangles. I love that song for it reminds me of my carefree youth in the dying days of Jim Crow in the South.

    No, not at all. It was an attack by this leftist journo. The ends justify the means. Before such an interview, leftists get together and brainstorm through questions to find a way to destroy their target. The person does not matter, nor its background, it’s all an Alinskyite destruction mission.

    Which doesn’t work too well lately. Nevertheless, that such slime should even be answered to is an abomination.

    Hmmmm….Irish & Dutch. I guess I’m a drunk master of Realist painting who farms potatoes.

    Next they’ll come out with the blame Canada again. 😆
