Anonymous Racist Freeper Is Actually… Republican Candidate To Replace Rahm

by Jim Newell

In early March, a gal named Rosanna Pulido won the Republican primary for the upcoming special congressional election in Illinois’ District 5, Rahm Emanuel’s former kingdom. She will lose. But not before making the funnies! She was the founder of the Illinois chapter of the Minutemen, because she *hates* the Mexicans. Once in a CNN interview she described John McCain as “just another politician that acts as if he was elected to represent the Mexican government.” Well maybe he was! AND YET, her most delightful comments came under the name “chicagolady” on the Free Republic website, where she wrote hilarious racist blather for five years until being recently outed.

While it would be quite unusual to say that Pulido likes black people, they are her de facto allies in the more important battle against the Mexicans, who have a secret plan! As “chicagolady” wrote last October,

The TRUTH is, Obama will legalize 12-20 million ILLEGAL ALIENS, and THUS SELL THE BLACKS, His own Race BACK into slavery!

The Illegals coming over pretty much hate African Americans.

He is going to unleash REAL racism upon his own people as they fight for jobs with the illegal aliens.

It has already happened in LA, just ask Ted Hayes!!

Ha ha, who else said this?: “The Illegals coming over pretty much hate African Americans.” Mark Penn!

Also, the housing bubble was caused by Mexicans giving Mexican money to other Mexicans as a “diversion” for the upcoming War on Blacks.

Thanks for posting and verifing what we we thinking. BUT you missed something! A lot of those loans were made by Mexicans preying on Mexicans. Not white Americans preying on Mexicans. What is being exposed here is a diversion created by the Hispanics who want money at any cost and the corruption and culture they are bringing with them. They would sell swamp land in Florida to their own grandmother.

I lived in Mexico for a year as a missionary. I was ripped off the worst by the Bible students. It is so cultural to rip people off they do not see that it is wrong. It’s culture.

Oh and she hates the Muslims too, but probably only because she thinks they’re Mexicans. Here she jokes about how funny the Muslims look when they pray to their Mexican God:

It reminds me of my dog, smelling buts.

Ha ha, she can’t spell “butts” correctly, because she’s illiterate.

Official Republican nominee for Congress, everyone!

But now it’s clear: “Common sense” = racism.

I’ve only been to Mexico once, but I spent as much time as possible looking for opportunities for price haggling. There is no way I got ripped off by Mexicans. I would humbly suggest that it is they who are the suckers. I even pulled the “no honey, let’s go look at that other vendor’s stuff over there” move and it worked pretty much every time!

Then I got home and everything I bought fell apart and/or caught fire. But still.

She’s not Mexican; she’s Puerto Rican, so it’s not pitiful self-loathing but good old-fashioned, we’re-closer-to-Spain-so-you’re-a-filthy-mudblood loathing. She probably hates Cubans, too. In fact, I’d be hard pressed to say she’s a racist since she seems to loathe teh colurds in general, there being a form of equity in uniform scorn.

Godot March 31, 2009 at 3:37 pm

But actually, her being Mexican herself makes sense. Minority Republicans seem to be the most virulent racists of the bunch. My belief is that it stems from them being treated as a negative stereotype by other racists. Rather than rejecting these racist assholes as being full of shit like a sane person would, they start to hate others of their race, both to prove that they are not like the negative stereotypes, and out of hatred for having to battle against said stereotypes.

Basically, she’s like “Those god damn Mexicans! THEY’RE the ones who are lazy! Not me, I’m Mexican-American! It’s all their fault that everyone thinks I’M lazy just because I look like them! They’re the worst, I hate them so much!”

Like most people living in the United States, Rosanna Pulido is a descendent of immigrants. Her grandfather was a Mexican farmworker and her father, who was born in Texas and raised in Mexico, moved to the Chicago area as a young man to find work and make a better life for himself. Despite Pulido’s proximity to this quintessential American immigrant experience, she has viciously lashed out against those following in her family’s footsteps and captured the spotlight as one of the most vitriolic anti-immigrant leaders in the Midwest.

She is indeed Mexican and she is indeed crazy.

She used to be on Lou Dobbs and CNN a lot, back before the campaign coverage (remember then??) when it was ALL Illegal Immigration, all the time. Every morning at the gym I would watch the prerequisite illegal immigration story – Illegal immigrants to get driver license, Local police to deport immigrants, Pizza parlor now accepts pesos, Illegal alien Mexican highway to connect to Canada. Then Tony Harris would trot out the two talking heads – someone who wanted to completely open the borders to Mexico and Rosanna, the token Mexican. She sat on the board of a group called “You Don’t Speak For Me” that was very PUMA-ish (meaning started by white people, but ostensibly led by Hispanics) and I think had a Black counterpart – “African Americans against illegals” or some such nonsense.

Being Latino, this ‘discussion’ regarding Latinos that are indigenous (to the states) versus the “border buddies,” a phrase a distinguished member of militant Chicanos stated.

Yea, there is a cultural difference–like my grandmother scolding me to behave BEFORE we go into the store, versus most of the Latinos letting their kids mischief around until the store gendarmes come a-runnin.’

But I saw the same behavior from ignorant Virginian Rednecks and their spawn, versus the proper, Iron Magnolia & Southern Gentleman types with their well-behaved Children…as I worked as a stocker for Wal-Mart…go fig.

[re=278101]Schadenfried[/re]: no, because hispanic is a cultural identity as well, and, as i said before, not a racial fact. one may identify as Hispanic against or in addition to any other identity or reality.

that is why Latino people take the distinction seriously, as do Chicano and indigenous people. generally, latino and chicano people assert that they are mixed-race or mixed-culture people, and not strictly “european”. if one identifies as hispanic, they are insisting on a european-spanish identity, which may be accurate, or perhaps self-loathing.

Have you ever met a Haitian person who self-identified as “Latino”? Because I never have, in all my years of living in a city with a giant Haitian community.

Haitian people don’t self-identify as Latino because they a) don’t speak Spanish as a first or second language, and b) would be unlikely to self-identify as what Dominican people self-identify as, because there’s a lot of longstanding animus between the two national groups.

The world is a large and various place, so I accept that there may well be Haitian people who do self-identify as “Latino” but I have never encountered one.

[re=278119]Bruno[/re]: She outed herself on Free Republic, we just went through and found her posting history under the name “chicagolady”. The stuff we found, with screenshots, is all at http://rosannapulidoisafreeper.blogspot.com – there’s a whole lot more batshit crazy there, including Pulido taking on the Catholic Church in Chicago and getting bitched out for it by the GOP.

Oh dear god… she is going to end up at my door asking for my vote. Or worse, my redneck neighbors…

Nice work, I knew it had to be something simple like that.

Note to Wonkette commenters: start setting up fake republican identities for future takedown of candidates.

Well, she’s crazy, but a lot of illegal (and legal) Mexican do indeed hate blacks. It’s part of the culture south of the border. Black kids in Salt Lake City get harrassed by Mexicans quite routinely. And if you’re a mestizo or castellano from northern Mexico, you generally consider Maya-descended indians in southern Mexico to be subhuman.

So that part of her otherwise nutty diatribe is accurate.

problemwithcaring April 1, 2009 at 2:45 pm

[re=278404]Atlas Spanked[/re]: If by accurate, you mean completely general like in the way that a stereotype is accurate – like the exact opposite of accuracy – then yes, she is accurate.

Srsly, though, it is as unclear to me as it every was how the fact that “a Mexican racist exists somewhere” should inform a discussion about policy. Even on the Free Republic.

Original Mexican-American families in Southern California (the ones whose parents and grandparents were “Mexican”, then the US just moved in on top of them) have long been known to hold prejudices against braceros – the first Mexican migrant laborers in the 1940s. Since the inclusion of European quotas on immigration in and the exclusion of a Mexican quota in the1924 Immigration Act and the subsequent white outrage that followed, some Mexican Americans understood that increasing their diminishing soci-economic status meant disassociating themselves with the darker skinned negritas who worked in the packing houses or the sun-burnt fruit and cotton pickers .

That’s the racist bullshit that Pulido and her family probably fell into and that plenty of others do as well.

To me, that’s doesn’t mean of “a lot of Mexican [sp] hate blacks.”

Maybe Rick Oberweiss, racist dairy owner and fellow mexican hater will bank roll her campaign.

It will not avail her though, the IL fifth couldn’t get much more blue.

Ha ha she is an idiot

CapnFatback April 1, 2009 at 8:52 pm

No, no, no. You’ve all misunderstood. Her dog’s name is “smelling buts.” Rosanna is a fan of e.e. cummings and bell hooks, and thus eschewed the whole capitalization things in her pet naming. She’s also very suspicious of things that sound too good to be true, hence: “smelling buts” and her cat’s name, “sensing a catch.”

Boy that was a long way to go for that one.

CapnFatback April 1, 2009 at 8:54 pm

“Dog” in Spanish: perro.
“But” in Spanish: pero.

Easy mistake.

Wow, these comments were illuminating for someone like me who is a Republican in the 5th IL Congressional District. It’s funny because it took Wonkette a couple weeks after I and others had already withdrawn our support of Ms. Pulido to grab on to this story. Kudos!

http://rightnotwrong.com/2009/03/23/why-the-5th-wont-be-taken-back.aspx

It should also be noted that some of the comments made about this Wonkette post are just as intolerant as what Ms. Pulido said in her comments on Free Republic. I commend you if you can walk out your door with your chin held high after making some of these comments. You must be proud of being on the same level as Ms. Pulido!! Yeah, now I believe Democrats respect creed, color and religion…As long as those vote your way. Good luck crazies!

Ms. Pulido isn’t racist. She’s Hispanic, and no one can be racist against his or her own race. She’s not anti-immigrant. She’s anti-ILLEGAL immigrant. She encourages immigration of people who obey all American laws.

Many of the district’s voters think that their last two congressmen, Rahm Emanuel and Rod Blagojevich, were corrupt and liberal. President Obama says that we should change the government, and I agree. We can change it by electing more conservatives. If the district’s voters want to vote for a big change, they’ll vote for Rosanna.

FreepGawker April 2, 2009 at 10:23 pm

[re=279237]PhilCollins[/re]: heeeeeey Phil you’re also a Free Republic poster as well as Pulido’s campaign staff so I’m not terribly surprised that you’re defending her here, but how exactly do you defend “fudge packing” and “sniffing buts”?

This is why poor people in general don’t get ahead in America: they spend too much time fighting with each other. The (mostly) White oligarchy benefits.

[re=277862]populucious[/re]: About Bibles being the most stolen items at the library, the answer should be obvious: Bibles are big, fat books with a lot of very thin pages. So if you stock your sh*thouse with one, you are set for wiping material for a relatively long time. Plus you have something edifying to read while on the throne–assuming that you can read, that is!

The Sears-Roebuck mail-order catalog was once commonly used in the same way; the lingerie sections were considered very “edifying”, so those sections tended to be “used” last.

It’s a cultural thing, you betcha.
