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.
