Democrat Sink: We need immigrants to clean our hotel rooms!

We’ve got a little Congressional special election going on over on the west coast of Florida to fill the seat left by the passing of Florida Statesman Bill Young, Chairman of the House Defense Appropriations Subcommittee. Republican David Jolly is running against Liberal Democrat Alex Sink.

And the liberal media hypocrisy in covering politics is in full flower. Sink makes frankly bigoted comments on the subject of immigration reform, but of course the media doesn’t call her out on it.

During a heated debate against Republican candidate David Jolly on Tuesday, Sink said “We have a lot of employers over on the beaches that rely upon workers, and especially in this high-growth environment, where are you going to get people to work to clean out hotel rooms or do our landscaping?”

Watch the video. You can’t make something like this up, folks.

Earlier this year, according to Newsmax, Sink called a Congressional Budget Office report indicating that Obamacare would reduce workers’ hours as being an “exciting prospect” because people would have more choice about how they work. “Over the years, particularly the past five six years when we’ve been in this horrible economic environment, I’ve had so many people express to me, ‘Boy, Alex, I’d love to start a business or I’d love to change jobs, but I can’t because I’ve got good health insurance at my workplace now. I’m stuck in a dead-end job I’m not very happy in, but I have to stay here.’ ”

Message to former Florida Chief Financial Officer Sink: the economy stinks because of the president you support and his policies – at least you are honest enough to admit that fact — but wait until all those employer mandate delays from his highness run out.

But can any of you imagine what would be the lead story on every liberal media outlet if the statement made by Sink was made by a Republican – even worse, a Tea Party conservative? Liberals are going nuts about two closed traffic lanes in New Jersey but could you conceive the “feigned outrage” over a statement such as Sink’s?

Of course, you don’t hear a peep about what she said. And those pesky FCC newsroom monitors certainly wouldn’t want her comments to be spread far and wide across the fruited plain, now would they?

What a moron….maybe she will end up cleaning motel rooms for a living when Obama is done with her! hehehehe

I think that was an insult to immigrants. What they are only good enough to clean hotel rooms and landscaping? What about so they can go on to school, get a better education to get a better job. The majority of our immigrants are Hispanics/Latinos. To me it sounded like she was saying those were the only jobs that could qualify for. Obviously that what she thinks of them since she said those words.

The lady is nuts. I work in a hotel we have a lot of American citizens cleaning our rooms. We DON”T need these people.. My

In case you didn’t know, Florida is not the only State that has Illegal’s nor the only State that had problems the last election.

I’m in SoCal…..last time I checked only bona fide CITIZENs are allowed to vote. My “legal” green card carrying British wife can not vote in our elections. Of course nothing stopped illegals from voting BO in I realize.

Is your wife one of the ones that has waited for 15 years to get her citizenship? We will have more illegal’s voting this November than the last election. He keeps letting them in by the boat full.

Reba

She is a Moron! In North West Florida (Panhandle), we have plenty of House Keepers and Lawn people that are American Citizens that do the work. All the Democrats want to do is bring in Illegal’s and not take care of American Citizen’s. I hope they are all voted out in Florida.

I’d be curious to know how Mr. Jolly responded? Did he take advantage of the obvious gaff, or was he oblivious?

MotherBatherick

Jolly called her comments “disgusting” and said her bigotry should disqualify her from serving in the United States Congress. He also said that her comments are offensive to immigrants, to non-immigrants and business owners. I agree.

The hypocrisy is breath taking. I generally do not take sides in a politics because I feel both sides are bought. But I have to say with all honesty. I have heard the left constantly accuse the right of bigotry & racism, time after time. But I have seen a constant stream of videos & read story upon story about the left saying bigoted statements such as this.

And this garbage about Ted Nugent ? They tore him apart over his mongrel statement. How can anyone allow this to slide & not call them out on it ?

How do you stop it? Unfortunately, the answer is with a 2nd Revolution. Nothing short of that will do at this point. Notice the quote was NOT “From time to time the Tree of Liberty must be refreshed by the (marginal change in institutional power structures (Republican / Democrat) that are virtually indistinguishable from one another)!”

I do! Unless we do something about the illegals before November, we will have a problem again.

If you haven’t already, show them some proof, beginning with this video of Alex Sink. If they still refuse to wake up, it will come back to bite them. I’ve got a couple of kool-aid drinkers for inlaws and they’re juuust now starting to feel the pain, so it may take awhile.

We have plenty of people to fill those positions if you would stop feeding them welfare checks and food stamps not to mention free healthcare that the tax payers foot the bill for! But the liberals need illegals so they can vote!

Now I like Allen West, but this little video is trying to discredit someone by taking her comment out of context……her final words we can hear are, ” we shouldn’t put employers in the position of hiring illegal immigrants “….. something we can all agree with.

Imtoooldforthis
Guest

No employer is forced into the position of hiring illegals. They don’t have to. Minimum wage is paid to Americans every day for doing these jobs. Employers don’t want to pay for social security, workmans comp insurance, or medical insurance so they hire illegals. They choose to break the law and then whine that they’re not making enough of a profit. What’s really sad is that suckers like you fall for it.

JEH
Guest

Suckers like me? I’d like to see every illegal immigrant put on a bus and sent back to where they came from. What did I say that made you think I supported hiring illegals

Imtoooldforthis
Guest

” we shouldn’t put employers in the position of hiring illegal immigrants “….. something we can all agree with. Since when is any employer put in such a position? Did I misunderstand what you said? If so please correct me. I agree with putting illegals on a bus, boat or plane to get them out of our country.

Bill
Guest

It was not taken out of context. The topic is amnesty, and those here illegally would have papers if they were granted amnesty. The argument is this: They would not need amnesty if they came here legally. If you look at the left’s take on this, the spin would be that employers would not have to hire illegals if you gave said illegals amnesty, then they would be legal immigrants. West is on point, because if a Republican said the same thing, in exactly the same identical wording, they would be called racists and bigots.

JEH
Guest

Sorry Bill, but I wasn’t there to hear the entire evenings discussion……only what was in the clip I mentioned…..and I didn’t hear her mention amnesty. Did you find a link to report more on what she said?

Margo

true–but we should put them in a position to hire Americans and those who are here legally by not allowing those illegal immigrants to stay here illegally!

Here’s an idea – require welfare recipients to perform some of these
jobs that “Americans won’t do” (of course their employers would have to
pay minimum wage, work comp, social security and medicare matching and
provide health insurance) Cheaper for the HUGE employers to hire
illegals and make you pay for those jobs that “Americans won’t do.”

“We’ve got a little Congressional special election going on over on the west coast of Florida to fill the seat left by the passing of Florida Statesman Bill Young…”
If you had REAL FREEDOM in Floriduh, one of the options on the ballot would be to hire nobody and leave that seat vacant.
Surely fewer politicians would mean fewer screw-ups and who knows what savings for the people would be realized without the sweetheart deals politicians live for.
Maybe Floridians would experience some actual liberty for a change.
(Or we could argue about the alleged differences between Tweedle-Left, and Tweedle-Right.)

I’m far from stupid Federal Farmer. I vote for the person who stands by our Constitution, Freedoms and our Rights as American Citizens. Individuals that want “Our Country” to excel and be for everyone, not just a few.

Oh I used to vote, but then a smarter man than I explained to me that voting is violence. It was an attempt by me to use the violence that is government to force you to comply with my wishes. “Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.” George Washington I understand that you want America to be a better place for all involved, I want that too.

So by not voting you basically are saying that you’ll let every other voter, metaphorically, beat the hell out of you and you’ll allow yourself to be bullied by the government without a say. That makes you either brave or stupid. Guess which one most people would pick? YOU are part of the collective whether you vote or not.

The Federal Farmer
Guest
So voting has prevented you from being bullied by the government? Voting has secured and expanded the liberty taken by the forefathers? By voting, we all attempt to “beat the hell out of” our neighbors and friends using the guns and police powers of the state. And by voting (because really there’s no other method) we show the government that we consent to their rule. Whether I vote of not, the government will continue to strip me (and you) of our liberties…this is what government’s do! (Read the founding documents if you doubt me.) You’re arguing basically the same thing… Read more »

I spend a lot of time researching before I vote. My biggest complaint is, “We the People” don’t have rights to recall anyone that is elected. I would rather vote and have a say, then not do anything. It’s our system, not perfect, but our right. What other options do we have other than letting the illegals and far right class rule again?

The Federal Farmer
Guest

Well, we have the option of doing the same thing over once again and to expect different results.
I’m no spring chicken and I didn’t just become of voting age. Each election I’ve participated in or experienced has brought us fewer liberties. I henceforth refuse to participate in the actual polling ritual. It is no privilege to be able to democratically vote on who will rule me and eat out my substance.

Reba
Guest

Yes, but I’m praying we have individuals that stand for what we believe in and is willing to stick their necks out for it. If we don’t vote, we are giving the other side a chance at the victory just like the last election.

The Federal Farmer

There is no “other side” there’s only the people vs the ruling class. But you go ahead, do it a few more times. It’s bound to get better next time.
Like a slot machine.

We could only hope it would work that way. I would like to see Bill Nelson go and a couple more. I would also like to see Governor Scott do more about the Fraud issues we had in the last election. I guess I’ll keep hoping!

The Federal Farmer

If your government won’t allow you to vote as you wish, you should stop allowing them the privilege they receive: Your consent to be governed by them.

Reba

That’s true! I do vote, but the fraud needs to be dealt with in “Our Country”.

The Federal Farmer

You must really like the way your masters are governing you.

Reba
Guest

I have no masters! Do you? I’m talking about the fraud going on in our elections.

The Federal Farmer
Guest

Of course you have masters! You prove it by participating in so-called elections. You are one of the stupid masses who believe what you’re told, that if you cheer for a team on the left or the right, you’ll someday vote yourself a paradise of freedom and liberty at the expense of the 49% whose team didn’t win this time around.

Panors77

Wow……….so why vote eh? It’s futile……marx has a better system then right? Where the proletariate don’t have to bother with such things as voting.

The Federal Farmer

I see you’re going to hold on to this idea that I’m a Marxist in spite of the fact that Marx was a statist and I’m an anarchist. Anyway, yes by all means, please continue to vote. It’s working so well and if you don’t vote those evil others will take power. Rinse and repeat. Vote for your liberty…oh wait, liberty isn’t on the ballot.

I’m trying to figure out what she said wrong – and this question is asked in all respect. Alex Sink’s entire quote from the 30sec soundbite is “Immigration reform is important in our country. It’s one of the main agenda items of the Beach’s Chamber of Commerce, for obvious reasons.

That’s why the illegals need to be kicked out. If you could pay someone (example)$2 an hour to mow your lawn or be required to pay a citizen minimum wage which would you choose? Corporations don’t want to pay minimum wage because they don’t want to have to provide health insurance, social security, pay workmans comp insurance, etc. It’s all about the money. What you fail to realize is that once these people have a green card or become citizens they will no longer work at these jobs. They won’t have to. They’ll get educational grants and move on and… Read more »

You need to reread what I said. the corporations don’t want the illegals to leave.

You don’t see that with unemployment so high the illegals are taking jobs away from citizens. My friend is a vietnam war baby and didn’t have the privilege of coming home with her father.

Wow Kurtz. Really? You don’t see anything wrong about her statement? Would you have felt the same way if Mitt Romney would have said this very same thing during the last election?

It’s all about the double standard my friend.

Feel free to attack me with your remarks, but my comment is Reasonable, and doesn’t overreach. Based upon the content of the entire 30 second video, not just the piece cherry-picked for quotability, Alex Sink does in fact know the demographics of her County, which she was referencing.

I can tell you that AMerican citizens will do that labor, just as they do in the UK. This whole “who’s going to do our menial labor if the illegals are gone” mantra is a strawman argument on its face. The other one is about them “picking fruit” which also the majority of illegals are NOT doing. Most here in SoCal are taking the teens fast food jobs and store retail.

Kurtz
Guest

Yeah, except these same Americans have had the opportunity to get in line and do this same work for Decades, but they are Not.

Or, you know, this thread would be a liveable wage argument and not an immigration one.

Your “‘”who’s going to do our menial labor if the illegals are gone’ mantra is a strawman argument on its face” is itself a strawman argument.

So, if they are not picking fruit who in the heck is?

They’re called seasonal workers and most of them travel from Mexico to the U.S. and back all year. They go with the flow of work. They have green cards to work at this specific job. They do it legally. My ex has some cousins who do it.

I don’t have a problem with them farming, as long as it is controlled. I have a problem with illegals.

Believe it or not most citizens of hispanic descent do too. My ex’s family used to say that illegal mexicans make the mexican americans look bad, they take away jobs, they treat mexican americans like dog doo(not his word mine). He was a cabinet maker-designed and built them and he worked for a few companies that hired mostly illegals. He quit those few companies because he wouldn’t work with them. He doesn’t hate being Mexican but he does love this country and feels like it’s being ruined by illegals.

Reba
Guest

I hope he doesn’t hate being Mexican, it’s his heritage. It is being ruined by Illegal’s and what makes me madder than that, is the fact we have people that have been waiting years to become a citizen of our country and still are not taken care of. I hope they learn to vote for Conservatives.

What she said wrong was “where are you going to get people to clean hotel rooms or do our landscaping. I’m a white woman who’s done it and I’ve known a lot of white women who’ve done it.. I know a lot of white men who are landscapers. What she’s saying is that only illegal immigrants will clean hotel/motel rooms. The reason that most companies hire illegals is because they can pay them below minimum wage. What happens when all these undocumented workers become citizens? Do you really think that they’ll still be willing to work for next to nothing?… Read more »

I agree with your whole statement and I’m against amnesty of course, but last time I checked amnesty doesn’t equal citizenship. They still can’t vote “legally” until they go through the process of becoming citizens. Of course, that didn’t stop illegals from voting in the last two “elections” we had either. We just need to do massive deportations after closing the border…..for real.

Imtoooldforthis
Guest

I agree with all your statements. By letting them go through the citizenship process we are telling them that if you break the law it pays so let’s invite our illegal cousins over and do it again. It’s turned into a never ending cycle. Amnesty was supposed to be a one time thing and it’s turned into Dem’s way to get more votes. It’s not about the people anymore and it’s financially killing this country. By the way I’m not a Rep so if you get angry call me something else.

She took the Florida State retirement system and screwed it over royally. Made bad investments that caused the system to lose tens of millions of dollar. It is a matter of public record. Why doesn’t the media go look that up and dig it out of the closet????
