A famous, powerful person appeared on a Spanish-only network and said the following:
"El Viatnamese y los republicanos tratando de tomar distancia de nosotros este asiento."Confused?
For those outside of California, a translation of the passage above is due. I had to double check but according to Google Translator it means:
"The Vietnamese and the Republicans are trying to take away this seat from us."I see.
Who said this dreamy little passage above, you ask? Was it some far-left rabble-rouser on the Berkeley college campus? A street vendor on the quaint streets of Venice Beach, CA? An editor at the Los Angeles Times?
Nope, it was none other than the highly esteemed Democratic Rep. Loretta Sanchez of California's forty-seventh congressional district, appearing before Spanish-only Univision:
Since Loretta Sanchez ousted 6-term conservative, GOP stalwart ''B-1 Bob Dornan" in 1996, California's CD-47 (Anaheim, Santa Ana, Garden Grove) has been become home to increasing numbers of Vietnamese immigrants. Much like Cuban immigrants that lay roots in Florida and elsewhere, Vietnamese immigrants tend to loathe command and control economics, statism, etc. and are anything but a dependable voting stream for Democrats.
Hence the racist, hostile tone directed at Vietnamese voters from Sanchez.
Loretta Sanchez is facing a tough reelection fight against a Vietnamese American - assemblyman Van Tran - perhaps her "the Vietnamese" comment was directed at him personally?
Isn't it shocking when the mask of inclusiveness and multiculturalism is lifted and the face of collectivism is revealed by members of the ruling class? Even better, isn't it amazing when one that uses the race card as an unyielding bludgeoning tool actually is proved a racist?
Hat-tip to reader Geri, video at Breitbart.
Updated: Twitter Dish sat down with Loretta Sanchez' opponent, Van Tran just a few days ago:
Also, thanks to SCTR's Leslie Eastman, I found that Van Tran was also endorsed by Tea Party Express. Also, go here for recent polling that shows Van Tran and Sanchez in a statistical tie.
