Even Better the GOP Candidate is a "Messican"
 
2012-08-29 03:25:27 PM  
Oh, come on! I know you hate Ohio, but we're not all bad!

/And we look like Italians, Greeks, and Spaniards, not Mexicans.

I've decided that, rather than show outrage over shiat teabaggers say, I'm going to try pity for a while.
 
2012-08-29 04:23:13 PM  
The biatch even tried to claim that it was out of context:

Saucedo Mercer's response to the video, which she posted on Facebook, is that the video Grijalva posted was "EDITED" from several different interviews.

Problem is: The interview footage in question is all continuous and has no edits. She got caught saying something stupid and tried to deny it, plain and simple.

pretty much this.
Unless they have to fly with brown people, then they hit the colon blow mode of fear.

They are kind of like reptiles in their defense mechanisms.

A Mexican who doesn't like people who looks like Mexicans? i guess it's no stranger than a black Republican. Nothing surprises me anymore.

for the life of me, I do not understand how people can be so pants on head retarded about race... I think the internet has given everyone a voice.... but all I hear it herp de derp de wackaloon spewing... now every bigot on the planet has the ability to spew nonsense and garbage... and it is out there for all to see.

They used to keep the crazy aunt/uncle in the basement... now they have an internet connection.

And they do it to themselves. It's a feedback loop of fear.  The "Derp Cycle"

So this is satire, right? Poe's law at work, surely. No one could possibly be this retarded, there's simply no way.

If the "funny" button hadn't disappeared for some reason, I would have clicked it 422 times at least. That was awesome.

I'm scared of Teabaggers because they look like morons.
 
2012-08-29 05:11:22 PM  
Y'see, if "Middle Easterners" get in, they'll just blend in with the Mexicans and we'll never be able to tell who the terrorists are. It would make racial profiling ever so much more difficult.
 
2012-08-29 05:16:12 PM  
Brown people. Scary. Terrorists.

The only people in the GOP who aren't self-hating these days are white men.
 
2012-08-29 05:22:10 PM  
Of course a member of the GOP is pants shiatting scared of mid-easterners. That's one of their defining characteristics.

She's not just afraid of middle-easterners, she's afraid of being mistaken for one.

"And those [Middle Eastern] people, their only goal in life is to, to cause harm to the United States," she said. "So why do we want them here, either legally or illegally?"

Not quite sure how that squares with the GOP's "Best buds with Israel and we should supplant our foreign policy with whatever suits them" plank.

not sure that there is anyone in the GOP who isnt self hating.
All the GOP xians are self-hating. We know that they hate EVERYONE who does obey the teachings of jesus and obey the bible. and NONE of them follow any of the teachings of jesus.

Oh, yes. I forgot to include my self-hating brethren. She must really hate us - we come in all the colors of the rainbow!
 
2012-08-29 05:43:44 PM  
Saucedo Mercer's also a Mexican immigrant who gained U.S. citizenship in 1991,

Self loathing Latina lady needs help.

That's not the "Middle" East, it's a little to the right, and down just a smidge.

The GOP's only goal in life is to cause harm to the United States, so rather than shipping out Ahmed and Mohammed, Cletus and Jim Bob need to go.

Hey Republicans, you can cure your misspeaking problem by keeping your mouths shut until you've taken the time to think about how your words will sound to normal people.

"If you know Middle Easterners, a lot of them, they look Mexican or they look, you know, like a lot of people in South America, dark skin, dark hair, brown eyes," she said. "And they mix. They mix in."

What the fark, man.

Seriously. Between the cerveza, the icons of the Virgin Mary, and the various preparations of pork, Mexican communities are havens for Arabic Muslims.

I, uh. I don't know. Ummm.

Holy crap.
 
2012-08-29 08:23:06 PM  
Headline is such a blatant strawman. It's obvious that what she was trying to say was that she's afraid of Mexicans because they look Middle Eastern.

I believe she's a sham primary opponent. Funded by the tea party.

A Mexican who would hate others for being Mexican if they didn't get lucky?

This doesn't like the Republican Party I know and love.
