Pennsylvania Congressman: “Latinos are Unskilled and Dependent on Social Programs”

Plus, all they know how to do is get drunk on Tequila, attack other gang members with their switchblades and then lie down, pull their sombreros down over their faces and sleep it off.

These words of wisdom are from Lou Barletta (R—Inbred).  He wants to make sure immigration reform is not based on “politics,” since Latinos will never vote Republican anyway:

“I hope politics is not at the root of why we’re rushing to pass a bill. Anyone who believes that they’re going to win over the Latino vote is grossly mistaken.  The majority that are here illegally are low-skilled or may not even have a high school diploma. The Republican Party is not going to compete over who can give more social programs out. They will become Democrats because of the social programs they’ll depend on.”

Not to mention those wicked burrito farts they keep cutting.

If you’re a political junkie like me (get a life), you may remember Lou Barletta for his obnoxious arrogant behavior at a town hall meeting in April 2011.  One of his constituents — i.e. the people whose taxes pay his salary — asked him why he supported huge tax subsidies for the oil industry.  The actual reason is that Lou Barletta is bought and paid for, owned and operated, by the oil industry.  They purchased the congressional election for him, and when Big Oil says “Jump!” Lou Barletta answers “How high, Sir?”

But this wasn’t the answer he gave.  He gave no answer at all.  He just smirked and said nothing.  Another constituent called out “You’re our congressman, don’t laugh at us.”  Barletta continued smirking and saying nothing.  Then he turned his back on the audience and started riffling through some papers in his briefcase.  And then he left.

It’s because of assholes like Lou Barletta that the GOP needs a new set of talking points.  These people are grownups — chronologically anyway — and yet they actually need to be told not to offend the groups they’re trying to suck up to.  DUUUHHH!!!

Republicans have been instructed to use the term “undocumented immigrants” instead of “illegals” or “aliens.”  Also:  Don’t remind Asian voters that they’re good at math but they can’t drive.

What a refreshing admission! They should all join in an say what they mean!

Why stop with Latino's? Lets continue with Blacks, Gays and uppity women as well!

Comes as a bit of a surprise as the party acknowledged loose cannons were one of the reasons they lost the last election, can't have that in the party of tow-the-line, and single think!


Who was worried they may ACTUALLY come around

Lou's got a point. Once these people can't be abused anymore, taken advantage of, able to demand at least a minimum wage picking our fruits and vegetables, and actually be able to enjoy the social programs that their taxes currently pay for (but which they are exempt from), once they have equal protection under the law, who will be our NEW serfs? I don't see no robots on the horizon, and you sure can't lazy, fat, soft white Americans to their shit jobs. So, who will do all the work for practically nothing?

Erik: It's too funny, the simultaneous "we need to reach out to minorities" and blatant bigots like Barlatta spewing out what they really think.

John: LOL, that's a good question. We certainly can't let these swarthy gardeners and farmworkers out of their Serf status until we find a new class of serfs to replace them.

Lou obviously doesn't like Latinos. He also probably doesn't like his party working with Democrats to craft new immigration reform policies that will allow them to become U.S. citizens.

But he misses the point. He wants to blame Democrats for trying to come up with solutions to immigration issues because he thinks it's all about politics, but he doesn't seem to realize that by working with the Dems to get something done, Latinos and other immigrants will pay attention to who voted for it and who didn't. Thus by not participating fully, the GOP cuts off its collective nose to spite its face and misses its chance to gain some voters.

Lou's comments demonstrate very nicely why his sad party has so much trouble making inroads with minorities. There are too many people in his party who don't like minorities, because if you are part a minority then you aren't part of the majority... like he is. How terrifying it will be for him and his type when the country eventually becomes "minority majority".

It is no surprise to me that the demographics of the two major political parties in our country differ as much as they do.

So, the Republicans want to make inroads with minorities, and in this case, also with immigrants? Well then, they should stop being crybabies and get on board! LOL! By not doing so, they slit their own throats. In the meantime, let people like Lou keep on talking. 8-)

Snave: It's fine with me if Republicans keep spewing their venom about lazy Mexicans and legitimate rape. Every one of these outbursts undoes millions of dollars worth of GOP talking points and focus group research. No matter how much lipstick they slather on the pig, the pig's face still shines through.

(Didn't mean to insult any pigs by comparing them to the GOP.)

Jess: The Republicans huff their own farts so the rest of us don't have to.
