What is a Government-hating -- and people-hating -- unpopular Political Party ever to do?

“The GOP knows that the future of their party relies on Latinos,” Freeman said. “They’re intimidated and know that they can’t win the Latino vote without supporting immigration reform.”
Since November, the GOP has worked to silence its remaining Tea Party members and actively promote instead its Latino face.

Let’s first look at the Tea Party’s stance on immigration independent of the impact on the Republican Party. It is extremely hardline, suggesting that no illegal immigrant should be allowed a path to citizenship or amnesty. They also believe in building better fencing between the U.S.-Mexico border and mass deportation of undocumented workers. They are opposed to the D.R.E.A.M. Act and other attempts to use U.S. taxpayer dollars to support undocumented immigrants.
Balancing the image of the Tea Party that the media has created and the image that Tea Partiers have created is difficult and sometimes precarious. An interesting new update to this saga is immigration, which is now splitting Tea Party lawmakers. The bipartisan effort to pass immigration legislation has caused a deep divide in the Tea Party camp. One of the Tea Party’s biggest stars, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), has been leading efforts to sell any bipartisan legislation to the GOP’s conservative wing. However, Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas) has claimed that the bill is "amnesty," and worries that it will drain economic resources and threaten border security. The opposing camps are growing in number.
Like I said: Dilemmas, dilemmas!
The Party of Hate is kind of damned if they do, and damned if they don't.
Of course, that is sort of hate's M.O. -- its enforcers always have to have someone perceived to be "lesser" than themselves, ie. someone to look down on. Tag were it.
Otherwise how can they go on believing that their stubborn, better-than-thou "political positions" are the Right Ones, in spite of all Reality-based -- and humanity-based -- evidence to the contrary?
Because: the Party of Hate will have no purpose -- without someone to hate. Duh.
