I’m going to be doing something every Saturday, which is provide the top 10 posts, search engine terms, and clicks of this week. I thought it would be something fun to do, so here it is, in order from most to least popular. So, dare I present to you… Continue reading
Limbaugh has repeatedly stroke the fires of racism, now hes mad at Obama for pointing out his racism. In a new Obama ad for the Latino community Obama simply pointed out how the republicans have treated Latinos, and asking do they really want to vote for McCain. Little bitch Limbaugh went on a cry-fest saying Obama is stroking the fires of racism. Of course, Limbaugh is the saint of the world. I find it funny that the republican party has always been against people being politically correct, and yet you can’t do anything without them crying sexism or racism for no reason. This is from CNN,
(CNN) — A Republican congressman and supporter of John McCain called a Spanish television ad from the Obama campaign “offensive and dishonest” Thursday, and said the Democratic nominee owes the Latino community an apology.
“It is offensive and dishonest for Barack Obama to lie about John McCain’s record on immigration and years of support for the Hispanic community, when it was Barack Obama himself who voted for ‘poison pill’ amendments that killed the effort at immigration reform. Instead of making false ads with baseless attacks, Barack Obama should be apologizing to the Latino community,” Rep. Lincoln Diaz-Balart said in statement released by the McCain campaign.
The Spanish-language ad, launched earlier this week, aims to connect McCain to Republicans who have staked out staunch anti-immigration stances — including talk radio host Rush Limbaugh.
“They want us to forget the insults we’ve put up with, the intolerance,” the television ad’s narrator says in Spanish as an image of Limbaugh is quoted saying, “Mexicans are stupid and unqualified” and “Shut your mouth or get out.”
“They made us feel marginalized in a country we love so much,” the narrator continues. “John McCain and his Republican friends have two faces. One that says lies just to get our vote and another, even worse, that continues the failed policies of George Bush that put special interests ahead of working families.”
But McCain has repeatedly disagreed with his party’s base on the issue of immigration and was a chief sponsor of an immigration reform bill last year that deeply angered conservatives and nearly sunk his presidency. The Arizona senator is also no favorite of Limbaugh, particularly for seeming to take a moderate stance on illegal immigration. But critics note McCain shifted his own policy on immigration as the Republican presidential primary race heated up, advocating a “security first” approach.
Limbaugh also took issue with the ad, telling the Politico it had taken his past statements — one of which is 15 years old — out of context and was an attempt at “race baiting.”
“Obama is now stoking racism in the country,” Limbaugh said. “Obama is a disgrace — he wants the public to think he is Mr. Nice Guy while his thugs are in Alaska looking for dirt on Palin and he runs race-baiting ads and lies about what he has done and what McCain has done.”
I also find it funny that McCain praised Obama’s work on the immigration bill the McCain sponsored, and yet McCain said he wouldn’t support his own immigration bill. Was he just sitting in congress one day and came up with the immigration plan just to show that he’s doing something. Look why don’t everyone just apologize to everyone, over and over again, so we can all share in the wonderful life of political correctness.
Its actually worse when you see him saying this in person.
I posted it here at the original post if anyone was curious http://sensico.wordpress.com/2008/08/22/video-mccain-americans-wont-pick-lettuce-for-50hr/
Whoa…McCain gets booed defending illegal immigrants by saying that Americans won’t do the same jobs illegal immigrants would.
You don’t understand how much I want to yell out MCCAINS AN ELITIST. I can’t believe McCain would basically call Americans lazy and then offers $50..Y&^@&*#^&* never mind heres the video,
Finally have the video, to see what McCain looked like while trashing America,
Ok now that I have calmed down. I was about to say that McCain says he would give $50 AN HOUR, to Americans to go out there an pick lettuce. What the hell, illegal immigrants don’t even get that much money and if they did then there would be riots in the street, with Lou Dobbs leading the riots.
I for one would never pick lettuce because Im not used to manual labor, but could you imagine, millions of working people out there. They would quit their $8 an hour jobs to pick lettuce for $50 an hour. I believe at the time he was trying to defend his immigration stance, but come on, I don’t even think the most liberal of liberals would think something like this. There are many unemployed people out there who would die to have a job right now, to have some money to pay for food…and this is what he thinks.
Ok Im going to have to cut this short, before I burst open.
Also, what does he mean by he’ll give us money to work the whole season and not just one day. Most Americans go a year or so without a vacation because they have bills to pay. Also the fact that McCain can just give away $50 AN HOUR proves he is nothing more then an elitist pig. My personal views is that we shouldn’t be giving excuses for illegal immigrants and workers who hire them. My reason for this stance alone is not because they take jobs away for legal Americans. Illegal immigrants get treated unfairly, they don’t pay taxes, at times they don’t get proper medical care, they get paid less because their illegal, they are subjected to horrible working conditions and the list goes on. If legal American citizens were paid $50/hr or $8/hr to pick lettuce, Im sure we wouldn’t be subject to the same horrible working conditions as illegal immigrants are being paid now.
McCain is really out of touch and doesn’t understand what Americans, who aren’t rich, have to go through. OK, seriously this time Im done writing.
Heres the transcript from a Q&A with construction and building trade unions,
SEN. JOHN MCCAIN (R), ARIZONA: Now, my friends, I’ll offer anybody here $50 an hour if you’ll go pick lettuce in Yuma this season and pick for the whole season. So — OK? Sign up. OK.
You sign up. You sign up, and you’ll be there for the whole season, the whole season. OK? Not just one day. Because you can’t do it, my friend.
This was taken at a Latinos for Obama meeting, if you were wondering. Sine Peña was so passionate, that even if you aren’t Latino, you feel compelled to get to know more about Obama’s plans for Latinos, then heres some info for you to check out Continue reading
