Apparently Mitt Romney’s campaign for the Republican presidential nomination does not include any changes in the nation’s standpoint on immigration. In fact, Romney’s standpoint on immigration is quite harsh. This wouldn’t be of any concern to your average Mormon pro-Romney voter. Unless, of course, that voter were an immigrant.
Latino Mormons are speaking out against Romney’s strict immigration ideas, holding firesides and rallies to convince other Mormons that Romney’s anti-immigration stance is also anti-Mormon. They say that the Book of Mormon is full of immigration stories, so Romney is being anti-Mormon in his views.
I say … WHEN THE FUCK DID LATINO MORMONS SURFACE? From what mystical waters did these Latino Mormons float? Out of which far off galaxy did these Latino Mormons fall? Into whose presidential campaign will these Latino Mormons run amuck? MITT ROMNEY’S, that’s whose.
To Latino Mormons I say, “Welcome!” I am so glad you have come out of hiding. The road ahead of you will not be easy. As an incongruous member of society, the media will bear down on you like a bird of prey. I can only speak for myself, as a college-educated, registered voter, non-pregnant, early-twenties Black woman. When I made my presence known, I found myself teaching in every corner of every Harlem charter school there is. Just look at Maya Angelou. That bat wrote a coupla well-rhymed feminist poems and the nation sat her on an ebony throne of glory.
Naahhh, I’m just kidding. Maya Angelou is GOD. But for real, I’m nervous about these Latino Mormons. Who knows what spicy magic they’ve been cooking, whispering sneaky Mormon prayers as they press corn arepas with a mortar and pestle. God, what if Mitt wins?! Or, what if the media forces him to reveal his birth certificate and it is revealed that he was born in New Mexico, eerily close to the border??! Or, what if he goes on to be elected president of this great nation and pulls off his face mask during his acceptance speech to reveal George Lopez!??!?!
or … OR …!?! OR … !!! What if Latino Mormons reveal Romney for the sad sack of garbage and idiocy that he represents, saving the country from the failed presidency that he would no doubt lead?
I’d ask all of my Mormon wives to get that haircut.
