    Re: GOP Lawmaker Calls Hispanic Workers ‘Wetbacks’

    Next time you come through this area, stop by we can go over to a bar I have been hanging out in for probably 30+ years and have a beer. I have known some of the people that will undoubtedly be there for 50+ years. I KNOW these people. Without exception, unless someone is just passing though, every single one of them vote republican. Every single one of them are now and have always been racist. It is not rare to, no actually is it very common, when Obama comes on Fox news which will be on at least one TV behind the bar, to hear someone shout out the N word and say something mindless about communist or something. It just is and it does effect my outlook of the entire party. I am aware it might just be these republicans in my area, and the in the rest of the country the republicans might be truly post racist that it is no longer a concern. I know it is possible. Then one of you calls someone a wetback. It is hard for me not to believe...

But you feel free to use that poor argument. I am pretty sure regular people know that the republicans would never elect a black president, and the democrats did. That would be the end of the argument that the republicans are the anti-racism party.
    That's laughable. I lived that history and have studied it. My father was Sgt At Arms for the California State Legislature and a close friend of the original Governor Brown. As a kid I spent time with democratic party leaders in our home. I heard the racial jokes they told, heard my father telling them constantly those had no place in our house.

    Don't be silly enough to think the Democrat leaders are any different, if not worse. They just do a better job of herding the cattle.

    again confirming this term applies exclusively toward members of the hispanic community, a particular ethnicity. which then means your assertion was quite ... what's the term ... wrong

    No, it just happens that Hispanics are the only ones realistically abled to get here illegally via water. If others were able to and did so, they would be called wetbacks as well.

    which means your statement was incorrect; here it is to see for yourself (my emphasis added for easier reading):

    notice that for wallace to have run as a third party presidential candidate he HAD to have left the demo party
