Voices of CPAC 2017 Paul, Fawad and the point the left is missing (with Stacy McCain)

Today I’m high­light­ing two Col­lege repub­li­cans who talked to me on DaTechGuy’s Mid­night Court Paul and Fawad.

Their story would be of inter­est to the media for sev­eral reasons.

1. They are young repub­li­cans from NY a blue state
2. They are col­lege repub­li­cans in an envi­ron­ment where that is iffy
3. They are both active enough to run for office in the col­lege repub­li­cans show­ing they have guts
4. They are both from racial and/​or reli­gious minori­ties which means they get even more grief for it

That made them inter­est­ing data points for the info I was try­ing to gather at CPAC, Here is Paul

Here is the audio from the mic if you are hav­ing trou­ble hear­ing with the video

The Key quote which I sus­pect will seem famil­iar. His answer to the ques­tion on how hard it is to be a black col­lege republican:

Oh man It’s, it’s crazy I’ve been called all the names that it’s, hon­esty I’ve been called stuff that’s aren’t safe to be put on your what’s it it, fcc air­ways. It’s not good, it’s just, it’s all about perseverance.

After I fin­ished with Paul’s inter­view Stacy McCain returned from the Pub­lic House and joined me, after a brief into we brought in Fawad who held the cam­era while I was talk­ing to Paul.

If Paul made lib­eral heads explode Fawad must frus­trate them even more in addi­tion to all of the points already listed above had two char­ac­ter­is­tics that set him apart from the other col­lege repub­li­cans I interviewed.

1. He voted for Don­ald Trump
2. He is a Muslim

The irony that of the four col­lege repub­li­cans I inter­viewed in sequence the only one who voted for Don­ald Trump was a young Mus­lim man likey cast­ing his first ever vote for president.

(Pause to allow you to clean up the mess from lib­eral heads exploding)

and the audio

What really struck me was his answer to my ques­tion con­cern­ing what he wanted to see Pres­i­dent Trump accom­plish (stop­ping ille­gal immi­gra­tion). His cri­tique of ille­gal immi­gra­tion cit­ing his own fam­ily who had to do things the legal way com­ing from Bangladesh was really on point.

“It really is a shame like a lot of my rel­a­tives took 8,9,10 years to come here so for peo­ple to come here ille­gally, to you know just cross over a 5 foot bro­ken fence is disgusting.”

It high­lights some­thing the left and media seem to miss. The left con­tin­ues to push the idea that the GOP in gen­eral and Don­ald Trump in par­tic­u­lar are anti-​immigrant, but to the mil­lions of peo­ple who came here legally and spent years doing so, this entire meme is an insult. To expect such peo­ple to cheer ille­gal immi­gra­tion would be like expect­ing some­one who saved for years to go to an event to watch some­one jump a fence, sits down next to them and them expect them to buy them popcorn.

The left might some­day catch on to this, but I wouldn’t hold my breath on it.

Update: Included Paul’s quote

and the audio

What really struck me was his answer to my question concerning what he wanted to see President Trump accomplish (stopping illegal immigration). His critique of illegal immigration citing his own family who had to do things the legal way coming from Bangladesh was really on point.

 

“It really is a shame like a lot of my relatives took 8,9,10 years to come here so for people to come here illegally, to you know just cross over a 5 foot broken fence is disgusting.”

 

It highlights something the left and media seem to miss. The left continues to push the idea that the GOP in general and Donald Trump in particular are anti-immigrant, but to the millions of people who came here legally and spent years doing so, this entire meme is an insult. To expect such people to cheer illegal immigration would be like expecting someone who saved for years to go to an event to watch someone jump a fence, sits down next to them and them expect them to buy them popcorn.

The left might someday catch on to this, but I wouldn’t hold my breath on it.
