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

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]

      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.

      1. MittBorg

        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.

    1. pdiddycornchips

      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?

  1. YasserArraFeck

    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?"

  2. DaRooster

    Uh… it is actually taking a stab at Repugnants and the fact that they are the ones that think Hispanics are all about the Chimmies…

    1. MoeDeLawn

      Aw jeez, you're one of those context/sentence structure/punctuation nerds, huh?
      STOP READING FOR COMPREHENSION!

  3. MissTaken

    “The lettuce in your salad this month almost certainly came from Arizona,”

    AAgghhh! There's Arizona in my salad! Build the danged fence!

        1. prommie

          Thats what the cops always call it in their reports, "green, leafy material, in a glassine bag of the type I have been trained to know is commonly used in drug transactions."

          1. HistoriCat

            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.

          2. MittBorg

            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.

  4. PuckStopsHere

    They, the Republicans, could have offered them the Romney's lawn work, but that was before Mittens learned he was running for public office and then he couldn't have that.

    1. pdiddycornchips

      Newt wants to put the poor's offspring to work cleaning the johns. It's a short bus ride from there to the commercial lawnmower.

      1. BornInATrailer

        Actually, 2800 followers!!!111one.

        A fun game might be to find other ridiculous Twitter feeds with more followers than this.

        1. BornInATrailer

          The Farts.com Twitter feed: 3400 followers.

          All Things Diapers & Prostitutes David Vitter's Twitter: 13k+ followers.

    1. SorosBot

      And all of them aging Florida Cubans. The rest (including their children) want nothing to do with the Know Nothing Party.

      1. Gainsbourg69

        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.

  5. Tengu

    Jean and the kids at the Freedom School tell me I should be nonviolent, but when I see idiotic behavior like this… I just go BERSERK!!!

    1. Beowoof

      Don't worry he saw the light necessary to survive in Arizona and became a conservative republican. I guess now it is just Billy Jerk.

  6. Joshua Norton

    We demand that Mr. Messina immediately apologize and we ask that President Obama disavow his campaign manager’s ridiculous statement,

    Who wrote this comedy sketch? It's brilliant.

    1. Lionel[redacted]Esq

      If you like eating them off the chiseled abs of your Latino gardener like Cindy McCain does? No.

    2. prommie

      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.

      1. SorosBot

        But they're trying to chase out all the brown tacos; which is too bad because they're delicious as well.

      1. chicken_thief

        I'm amazed at how well they do play baseball with all those slide rules and abicuses (abici?) hanging out of their pockets and shit.

  7. YasserArraFeck

    “The lettuce in your salad this month almost certainly came from Arizona"
    Still miles better than Alaskan Word Salad

  8. actor212

    Shortr RNC: I know! Let's replace authentic Mexican cuisine with this "made for Americans, by Americans" concoction and then tell the Mexicans "take it or leave it"!

    1. Steverino247

      Next mass posting to Facebook:

      OMG! These sickos on wonkette.com were posting about how they ate Mexican babies in tacos!

      (Stupid people, it's fetalchangas we're eating today.)

    1. GOPCrusher

      Or, as it appears, they have nothing to offer any of the other demographics except for the wealthy, white, Xtian, male.

    1. MittBorg

      Oh, like the Latino community doesn't know that. Trust me, the gusanos who vote Republican up here are the same gusanos who oppress the Indios down there.

      No, that's not what I meant, wouldja get your mind out of the gutter?

  9. BarackMyWorld

    I really hate the Republicans, and they are being really stupid about this since the joke wasn't about Hispanics but their own Latino outreach…but I really don't want to have to defend Dana Milbank, either.

          1. anniegetyerfun

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

          2. HuddledMass

            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?

  10. SorosBot

    Well of course anyone who points out that conservatives are racist against Latinos are the real racists.

  11. Blueb4sunrise

    Sen Russell Pearce just introduced legislation requiring restaurants to show customers sonograms of the insides of chimichangas.

    1. ItsMrTheOwl2You

      Wait until they find out that some Latinos eat just like real Americans do. The Twitterverse will explode.

    2. Maman

      Racism is getting more difficult. I bet the GOP wishes for the "Good Old Days" when they could call everyone not like them a n*****

  12. Numbat_Dundee

    “It’s also believed that the chimichanga has its origin in Arizona.”
    But that didn't stop them from deporting it.

  13. LiveToServeYa

    Those who disseminate insulting jokes will have insulting jokes disseminated about them, hence MAD: Mutually Assured Dissemination.

  14. prommie

    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.

  15. mavenmaven

    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.

  16. bureaucrap

    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?

    1. chicken_thief

      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!

    2. tessiee

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

      [actual co-worker's lunch, which I think may have been the single whitest thing in all of history]

  17. sezme

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

    1. tessiee

      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.

  18. owhatever

    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.

    1. BornInATrailer

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

  19. cobweb2

    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?

  20. actor212

    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.

  21. Tundra Grifter

    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?

    1. MittBorg

      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.

    2. tessiee

      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.

  22. hagajim

    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.

  23. Wonderthing

    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.

    1. Negropolis

      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?

  24. Gainsbourg69

    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.

  25. MittBorg

    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.

  26. MosesInvests

    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.

  27. tessiee

    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".

  28. tessiee

    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?
