Republicans Just So Sick of Obama Campaign’s Racism Against Latinos

by Kirsten Boyd Johnson

Like a Ron Paul newsletter times one thousand.

What is wrong with Barack Obama campaign manager Jim Messina, that he thinks Latinos are all about chimichangas? Latinos are all about TACOS, you moron. How racially insensitive can this guy possibly be? Let’s check Messina’s original comment for further outrage!

Feel free to notice the swelling in your eyeball veins any second now:

DIOS. He’s going around quoting lines from the staff racists at the Washington Post. APOLOGIZE FOR QUOTING KKK GRAND WIZARD DANA MILBANK, HATER SLOB:

“The fact that the campaign manager of President Obama’s reelection campaign thinks it’s appropriate to disseminate insulting jokes about the Hispanic community is a perfect example of the kind of empty rhetoric that characterizes this White House’s so-called outreach to Latinos. We demand that Mr. Messina immediately apologize and we ask that President Obama disavow his campaign manager’s ridiculous statement,” said Jennifer Sevilla Korn, executive director of the conservative Hispanic Leadership Network, in a statement.

These people with their “empty rhetoric.” HOW DARE THEY.

But let us not miss an opportunity to double our outrage, dear readers. Gird yourselves and then read with disgust Milbank’s original cruel joke from his column, the moral equivalent of ten million recreational abortions:

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) spoke about the wonders of his state. “The lettuce in your salad this month almost certainly came from Arizona,” McCain said. “It’s also believed that the chimichanga has its origin in Arizona.”

The chimichanga? It may be the only thing Republicans have left to offer Latinos.

Oh god. Of course. John McCain had to bring up ARIZONA again. No wonder everyone’s offended. [TPM/ The Hill]

"all about chimichangas?"
What about burritos? And how does this effect Taco bell?

Gratuitous World February 15, 2012 at 3:34 pm

Persecution fantasies? They may be the only things republicans have to offer America.

prommie February 15, 2012 at 3:40 pm

And the hispanics are Catholics, too, and Obama is forcing them all to take birth control and abort their fetuses, so in solidarity with the persecuted hispanic catholics, today, all republicans are papist wetbacks.

MittBorg February 15, 2012 at 6:37 pm

Tomorrow, they'll suffer their usual lapse of memory and begin beating any brown person they see with their handmade malacca canes, but that's tomorrow.

nounverb911 February 15, 2012 at 3:35 pm

Chimichangas aren't even Messican, they were invented by Monica Flin in Arizona in 1922.

chicken_thief February 15, 2012 at 3:55 pm

Just days after Walnuts demanded "just finish the danged meal!!!!".

pdiddycornchips February 15, 2012 at 5:51 pm

I call bullshit. My friends in Mexico had lard or there would be no chips for Nachos. They had the burrito, are you trying to tell me they needed some gringo with the decidedly un-hispanic name of Monica Flin to put the two together?

DahBoner February 15, 2012 at 8:03 pm

Uh…nachos come from 7-Eleven…

YasserArraFeck February 15, 2012 at 3:36 pm

Walnuts has to say "Arizona" as often as possible, lest we forget who he is. Better "That old bastard from AZ" than "Who's that?"

James Michael Curley February 15, 2012 at 3:58 pm

"That old bastard from AZ who was born in Panama."

Don't worry, it's green. Only the browns have to produce papers.

I don't know, I have had green leafy material where papers are very important.

Gainsbourg69 February 15, 2012 at 6:23 pm

Not really. It depends on how rabidly anti-Castro the family is. If the patriarch of the family throws stuff at the TV when Castro's face appears on the screen, chances are his children vote republican automatically. Thankfully, most of them are low information voters and rarely turn up to vote.

Negropolis February 16, 2012 at 12:32 am

But nothing is better than those pink tacos over there, in that Arizona where the liberties of those forefathers is still being second-amendmented with those surveyors marks of that freedom of conscience which was oh so important to those of the founders of our liberty in this great land that is the land of that freedom and liberty that those troops are fightin' so hard to protect, God bless 'em, with those precious second amendment arms also.

Its the subtle racism of low expectations, to offer a chimichanga to a messican. Conservatives know that the messicans can eat amurrican food, like Pizza and croques monsieur.

So, in other words, once again, just like Romney did, the Repubs take a line out of context, originally in response to their own hateful words, and pretend it is Obama speaking. Didn't Dana Millbank himself do this once? Pathetic.

so, if saying, "The RNC has nothing to offer the Latino community but chimichangas" is racist against Latinos, is it also racist for Dems to say "The RNC has nothing to offer White Protestants but baloney sandwiches on Wonder Bread with mayonnaise?" Is it less racist if you substitute the sandwiches with a tuna hot dish?

chicken_thief February 15, 2012 at 4:18 pm

I AM OUTRAGED!!1?11!1! How dare you?!! I'll have you know that some of us do eat our baloney on white bread with French's yellow mustard. And with cheese!

Don't forget the Ambrosia for desert!

Jello mold with canned fruit cocktail, cottage cheese, and mini-marshmallows mixed in.

heathenette February 15, 2012 at 11:13 pm

Jello. Has to be jello!

Biff February 15, 2012 at 5:40 pm

Tuna is so versatile, it can also be used in tacos. Or chimichangas.

tessiee February 15, 2012 at 10:45 pm

That's Velveeta on Wonder Bread with Miracle Whip and a diet Dr. Pepper.

I'm truly outraged over their false outrage over Milbank's sarcastic outrage. And I will not be distracted from that outrage.
Mmm… chimichangas…

tessiee February 15, 2012 at 10:48 pm

I'm outraged over their outrage, your outrage, everybody's outrage in this thread, and the fact that the Taco Bell near me is really stingy with the guacamole.

owhatever February 15, 2012 at 4:13 pm

So, the Republican are NOT offering chimis to Hispanics? Maybe if the Hispaniolians agree to vaginal probes and sonograms, something could be worked out. Make the deal, people.

BornInATrailer February 15, 2012 at 4:17 pm

Are you suggesting using a chimichanga for the procedure!? Because if so, you may have just made getting an abortion in SC delicious.

tessiee February 15, 2012 at 10:49 pm

Watch out for those jalapenos!

cobweb2 February 15, 2012 at 4:25 pm

I am old and white and I never heard of a "chimichanga" before reading this, but I can recognize a euphemism for something really foul when I see it. Is it some foul use of Santorum or a reference to deformed, diseased genitalia?

Fare la Volpe February 15, 2012 at 4:33 pm

Yes.

actor212 February 15, 2012 at 4:36 pm

Lemme see….the Republicans are all about border fences and shooting undocumented workers on sight and forcing everyone to carry papers proving residency, targeting Latinos, but the RNC Latinos get upset about a Democrat mentioning a sandwich.

This is kind of like the Log Cabins taking umbrage because a Democrat talked about ruby-red slippers.

Tundra Grifter February 15, 2012 at 4:52 pm

Chili con carne was invented in San Antone.

Chop suey was first cooked in San Francisco's Chinatown.

So?

I mean, this is a great country. Right?

MittBorg February 15, 2012 at 6:59 pm

An awful lot of what passes for Chinese food in this country was invented right here. Because no self-respecting Chinese person would dream of eating most of this shit. I can't tell you how happy I am to be in HongKong or Singapore eating the Chinese food THERE. It's WORLDS, nay, GALAXIES above this godawful shit.

Tundra Grifter February 15, 2012 at 9:04 pm

It can be tough to find those twice-fried raindeer balls here in the States.

MittBorg February 15, 2012 at 10:17 pm

Geezus, dood, WTF are you doing, eating twice-fried reindeer balls? Haven't those poor creatures suffered ENOUGH?

tessiee February 15, 2012 at 10:57 pm

I don't know where pizza was invented, but according to Bill Bryson's book "Made in America" (one of my favorite books, btw), it was introduced to Americans in 1905 at Lombardi's on Spring Street in NYC.

hagajim February 15, 2012 at 4:53 pm

Dese fuckin' Repuglicans, all they have left to throw against the wall is Santorum, because all the other shit they've thrown just doesn't stick. Need to include more Messican in their diet to get the sticky brown stuff.

Wonderthing February 15, 2012 at 5:07 pm

Yeah! And, and, Obama hates kittens, too! And, and puppies! And I saw him whip a unicorn with a rainbow! He smiles a lot, too which, you know is the way Muslins say they hate you and your freedoms. It's disgraceful the way he won't just quit and admit that he's a terrorist. And he hates kittens.

tessiee February 15, 2012 at 10:58 pm

Also, he bit that guy's finger off, probly, huh?

GOPCrusher February 15, 2012 at 5:33 pm

O/T But while we are on the topic of food: http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/sideshow/man-suffers-

That's what you get for eating shit disguised as food.

Still, it was the first actual known cardiac incident at the Heart Attack Grill. "He was having the sweats and shaking," "Nurse" Bridgett, who was working at the restaurant at the time of the incident, told Fox5. (Employees at the restaurant are given fake medical titles, including the establishment's owner, "Doctor" Jon Basso.)

"I actually felt horrible for the gentleman because the tourists were taking photos of him as if it were some type of stunt. Even with our own morbid sense of humor, we would never pull a stunt like that," Bosso told Fox5. "He was sweating, suffering. Anyone with an ounce of compassion would've felt for him."

Really, "Nurse" Bridgett, fuck you. Of course they were taking pictures because your entire restaurant is a publicity stunt. Remember when your mascot died?

succalina February 15, 2012 at 5:57 pm

Her last name is Korn? Latinos call it maize. Oh the self-loathing…

Gainsbourg69 February 15, 2012 at 6:33 pm

Ms. Sevilla Korn, not to insult your intelligence or anee-ting, but not all Hispanics support a party which tries to scapegoat the fuck out of us, you fucking sell out.

Call me when this non-controversy hits Noticiero Univision, also.

MittBorg February 15, 2012 at 6:35 pm

Wow, it seems like EVERY fucking Republicunt alive has already forgotten about New Haven, CT Mayor Joseph Maturo and his comment about showing sensitivity to the Latino community by eating more tacos. Dayum.

DahBoner February 15, 2012 at 8:01 pm

I think Chimichanga means "fried taco" in Mexican

snoopyfan2010 February 15, 2012 at 8:09 pm

What, no chips and salsa?

ttommyunger February 15, 2012 at 8:47 pm

Herman Cain would have chimed in except he can't pronounce Chimi- chimi-ubeki-chimi-changa.

MosesInvests February 15, 2012 at 9:38 pm

Let's look at the context of this-the Repubs in the Senate, led by Rand (there's something about an Aqua-Buddha man) Paul, are blocking the appointment of a Cuban refugee to the Federal bench. Unbe-frackin'-lievable. They're ticking off the *one* group of Latinos that is composed pretty much of yellow-dog Republicans. It's as if they're giving up on anybody who isn't a white redneck.

tessiee February 15, 2012 at 10:10 pm

A good friend of mine, who is a perfectly lovely woman, has struggled all her life with her weight, and on top of that, has had to deal with critical, judgmental family members. One of those family members asked the overweight person, in my hearing, her opinion of a particular outfit they were wearing. She blurted out, "It makes you look fat", to the surprise of everyone, including herself.

In a similar way, the Republicans are about three-quarters of the way to crazy every minute of the day, because they want to call the President a "nigger", but can't. It's an obsession with them, the way repressed thoughts tend to become obsessive, and forces its way up to the surface in strange and unexpected ways, as repressed thoughts will. Combine that with the projection they bring to every situation, and one of those ways is to label everything the President does as "racist".

tessiee February 15, 2012 at 10:31 pm

Now, this really IS a puzzler:

Jim Messina (and I have to wonder if he ever misses Kenny Loggins) basically said that Republicans have nothing left to offer Latinos. The Republicans, to the great surprise of no one, got all worked up over this being "an insult to the Hispanic community", like that's someone they give a shit about.

Now, the puzzler is, are they:
a) so dumb that they actually believe that saying Republicans have nothing to offer Latinos is actually an insult to Hispanics, rather than an accurate critique of their racist and intellectually bankrupt agenda,
b) so dishonest that they think anybody will be fooled by this?

Also, can we look at their tweets under the same microscope, and have the same kind of Chicken Little-esque panic when one of *them* says anything whatsoever about Latinos/Hispanics/blacks/gays/whoever?

fuflans February 16, 2012 at 1:04 am

well now i'm just hungry.

zacktly February 17, 2012 at 5:11 pm

Has anyone said "Chimichangate" yet? AM I THE FIRST?

anniegetyerfun February 15, 2012 at 4:33 pm

Chivalry? Or calling every conservative woman a cunt? I'm pretty sure that the “cunt” thing was around during Jim's original tenure.

HuddledMass February 15, 2012 at 4:37 pm

Oh I meant chivalrous as in trying to squelch the "cunt" meme. Not sure when that started. And not sure how I feel about it – the crudity level here is pretty high, you know?

SorosBot February 15, 2012 at 4:44 pm

WHAT??? A man let you walk out of the house with CLEAVAGE showing? Does Ms. Clouthier know this?

MittBorg February 15, 2012 at 10:14 pm

I *must* be.

My God. She must be a liberal!

MittBorg February 15, 2012 at 10:41 pm

Clouthier? No fucking way.

MissTaken? Yeah, she's been thoroughly corrupted, poor girl. No saving her, I'm afraid.

HistoriCat February 15, 2012 at 11:17 pm

That's OK – she just needs a man to take her in hand and give her moral guidance. Just like how Rick was able to guide Mrs. Santorum away from that awful abortionist lech she was shacked up with.

MittBorg February 15, 2012 at 11:45 pm

I b'leev MissTaken has, so to speak, been taken in hand and given moral guidance. Unfortunately, the gentleman doing the honours is some redheaded scalawag of the dreaded LIBERAL persuasion, who's *encouraging* her in her scandalous behaviour. If we're lucky, we'll get video.

HistoriCat February 16, 2012 at 12:24 am

Video? Ooh – can't wait to see that!

MittBorg February 16, 2012 at 12:40 am

Someone's wiring up her apt. as soon as she leaves for work. Nyahhahaha.
