    He said conservatives, therefore he's painting everybody with the same brush.

    I'm not a RW, but I react when anybody uses this kind of trash assumption for an entire group. They guy was an idiot to use the phrase, so HE is the idiot, not every last conservative as HoJo tries to paint it.

    Him and everyone that defends him. I agree with you if he said the stupid thing, all the RW's said man, that was stupid, and then he said damn, sorry. ok fine. Forget it and move on. But how many posts on this tread defend calling people wetbacks? Kinda makes me think there might be something to it.

    Actually back in his day we had a strong guest or temporary worker to bring in tomato pickers, they weren't illegal but still slurred as 'wets' or wetbacks.

    But as many Mexican immigrants now tell their 100% Citizen grandkids...."Don't let the Gringos call you a wetback, when I crossed the Rio it was only ankle deep!"

    Well, I'm not white, and I'm not conservative, and I'm usually not angry, so there goes your theory.

    Of course you're 'conservative'. In fact, you are on the extreme end of the conservative spectrum. Your self designation of moderate is a joke that nobody believes, considering the garbage you post about the President and Democrats. And you are very angry. Your posts almost drip venom when speaking about Barrack Obama ( sorry, in your words, President Osama).

    You'd get a lot more respect if you simply labeled your political lean accurately.

    Since you don't tell the truth about your political lean, I have no idea whether or not you are telling the truth about whether or not you are white.
