“You got to watch out because Texas is — when Texas goes full-blown…the Republicans better have it good now because they are not long for this world,” Norton said in June 28 comments on PBS discussing the legislative fight over abortion in the state.

The panel was discussing the recent filibuster of an abortion bill by Texas State Senator Wendy Davis, but the tone obviously overlapped with the large Hispanic population and recent immigration reform ambitions.

“Meaning what?” the host Bonnie Erbé prompted.

“Meaning that the growth of the Hispanic population is going to mean the end of this section of this – this southern section white party of old men, and they know it,” Norton said.

The rallies made the headlines when pro-lifers, singing ‘Amazing Grace,’ were countered by chants of ‘Hail Satan’ – full story here

    As a Black man it may me retch to Black men and women in positions of power supporting illegal aliens. The circular logic of saying we as a country should grant amnesty to illegal aliens because of growing hispanic population which is growing because of previous amnesties, chain migration, and subsidies for the hispanic baby making machine. The politicians and other elites who support this amnesty are anti-American, disloyal Americans, and despicable people.
