Menendez: The fear-mongering lowest common denominator won

posted at 10:48 pm on June 28, 2007 by Allahpundit

Vanquished were the voices of hope and light, who mean so achingly well that occasionally they’re compelled to toss a Nazi reference or two at their opponents. Here it is — the cheapest speech to come out of this process, particularly the evil passage towards the end about what’s meant by the phrase “those people.” If you choose to take him seriously rather than engage him at the level of rancid demagoguery he’s operating at, you might reflect that the very notion of borders implies some concept of “these people” and “those people.” If he objects to that, he objects to borders in principle. And if he’s willing to betray that belief by agreeing to beef up border enforcement marginally just to get the deal passed, then he’s compromising on a point which he himself seems to regard as wickedly racist. Some principle.

As for his paean to the “honest debate” that he and his fellow comprehensivists forthrightly attempted to engage in to try to pass the bill, let’s recap: no committee process; no hearings; no significant floor debate; no opportunity for opponents to offer amendments; no chance to even read the bill before voting on it. Just this jackass descending from Mount Sinai with the Z-visa tablets in his hands. How lucky we benighted scum are to have him.

Note what he says at the very end, too, about how he speaks for “those people.” You’d almost think he regards them as his constituents. Doubtless he does. Exit question: How would he have reacted if Jeff Sessions, say, referred to his supporters as the “lowest common denominator”?

Menendez is an embarassment to our state of New Jersey. Most politicians from Jersey embarass us anyway. He lost a close race to Tom Kean, Jr, who would have done our state proudly.

what kean had to say about menendez back then:

“New Jerseyans are sick of corrupt politicians like Bob Menendez,” said Kean spokeswoman Jill Hazelbaker. “Menendez personally profited from sending federal taxpayer dollars to an organization that paid him hundreds of thousands of dollars in rent, and whose employees sent him tens of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions — and because of this he is now under federal criminal investigation. Instead of taking responsibility for his actions and his current predicament, Menendez has sought to place blame on everyone from the U.S. Attorney to the press.”

“After years of embarrassment, it should be perfectly clear to New Jerseyans that we need leaders with the highest ethical integrity. Politicians like Menendez illustrate the need to clean up the corruption and scandal that has plagued Washington D.C. and New Jersey, so we can begin to restore the public’s faith in government.”

PRCalDude on June 28, 2007 at 10:56 PM

more on menendez corruption:

deal with a federally funded non-profit allowed then-Rep. Bob Menendez to collect substantially more rent for his old house than he got in prior years, when the property’s annual losses reached $10,000, records show.

Menendez’s arrangement with the politically connected organization meant the rent he charged for the Union City property jumped by nearly 50 percent from 1989 to 1994 despite a pronounced real estate slump that had emptied some of Hudson County’s best office buildings.

Whether the non-profit North Hudson Community Action Corp. paid Menendez more than the space was worth is a key question in the federal probe that threatened the Democrat’s successful bid for the U.S. Senate last year. Excessive rent payments could back up charges that the organization was passing kickbacks to a congressman who helped boost its federal funding.

Damian G. on June 28, 2007 at 10:59 PM

There have been 7 separate amnesties (“path to USA citizenship”) passed since 1986.

Passing amnesty legislation only encourages more illegal immigration.

When our government rewards illegal behavior with USA citizenship, are we really surprised that there has been multiple amnesties passed since 1986?

Even IF we can secure the border 100%, there is still the problem of anchor baby citizenship, and the additional problem of travel visa over-stays.

As long as the federal government hints at providing amnesty, there will still be national security threats arising from visa over-stays, even if the border is effectively 100% secure.

The solution is for the government to declare: once and for all, we as a country will no longer pass future amnesty legislation. Period.

ColtsFan on June 28, 2007 at 11:02 PM

Those people refer to us as those gringos, but that’s ok, they aren’t racist or anything. They just want a better life. They don’t want to follow the laws of this country, they just want a better life.

And for those of you who might jump on me for using the term gringo, accuse me of being biased against mexicans or ignorant of the bigger picture, I’m aware that the problem of illegal immigration does not come only from Mexico. In California, we enjoy the fascinating multi cultural lessons from the Russian gangs, the Hmong gangs, the Muslim jihadists and assorted other groups who come here looking for a better life.

I am constantly amazed at the shock and dismay shown by our elected officials when the people speak out. Perhaps they should crawl out of the political cave once in a while and hang out in the real world with the rest of us.

Dang, this video really ticked me off.

speed911 on June 28, 2007 at 11:05 PM

We should learn from this. We must all begin to work in concert. We need to pick and choose our fights, but we need to keep up the pressure. The Fairness Doctrine should be coming up; $400 billion tax bill to mention just two. We also need to keep an eye on Menendez and maybe we’ll be lucky enough to get a good video of this idiot! “Those people” indeed. Well, Menendez, from one Latina to a crazy Latino..you don’t give a damn about anything but money and power. Profound!!

sharinlite on June 28, 2007 at 11:05 PM

It’s amazing how voters continue to elect and re-elect corrupt criminals like Menendez. People really are stupid.

But this person can’t stop thinking about

‘Hey, look! A talking pustule!’

It is amazing to see this cowpie speaking, with confidence, about being superior to Benjamin Franklin. I would reckon that a corn cob, used as a wiping implement by Benjamin Franklin, would do a better job as Senator of New Jersey than Sr. Menendez. And, I would wager that the corn cob wouldn’t take any bribes or shady deals.

Abu Daboo Doo on June 28, 2007 at 11:11 PM

These Dhemocrat senators are the racists because THEY are saying that Mexicans are incapable of following the law or learning how to speak English. Now THAT is racist!

Those people indeed!

Mojave Mark on June 28, 2007 at 11:11 PM

I don’t think they’ll ever get it. They refuse to differentiate between illegal immigrants and Legal Immigrants.

AMNESTY Mel is just sad he made so many campaign speeches saying he would never support AMNESTY before the election. Just because Mel says it isn’t AMNESTY, doesn’t make it so.

Here is my promise, I will not give money to AMNESTY Mel’s RNC so he can pass it on to RINOS I don’t support. I will from now on give money to candidates that I alone choose.

They will never figure it out, times changes.

Just this jackass descending from Mount Sinai with the Z-visa tablets in his hands. How lucky we benighted scum are to have him.

This is such a great country. To be able to pick the “Goat of the Day” on MM, and to say this, and still be free is delightful. She is still America!

Notice how this arshat emphasized the word “statesmen”, as if for us people to notice him, again.

How condescending he is about “those (little) people”, as if they were helpless children.

America is awaken. I so hope the FD comes up soon. We’re in a good mood for it. Mexico, wake up, and shape up some too!

Entelechy on June 28, 2007 at 11:22 PM

Funny…when I said “those people” I was referring to liberal Senators who would vote on complex legislation without reading in order to advance a racist and irresponsible world view.

Why is Baghdad Bob Menendez speaking for them?

I think “those people” in the Senate are nutter-butter.

sinsing on June 28, 2007 at 11:24 PM

Oh so let get this right. In the long proud tradition since *ahem* 1925 the mexicans have been able to bend over better than anyone else to pick veggies. This is the job that Americans won’t do. So after 82 years of bending over they want to bend the American people over in just one day. Hey Menendez just called me a xenophobe! Screw you Menendez I’m an English speaking American Taxpayer who votes. If you like Mexicans so much start an outreach to Mexico and help them better their own country. He sounds like he
s trying to make a veiled threat to riot.

sonnyspats1 on June 28, 2007 at 11:24 PM

When will we stop calling people like this good patriotic Americans? These leftists hate America, hate American citizens, deride the citizens of this country at any chance they get and do everything they can to destroy what made this country great.

They are going to the floor of the Senate and stating very clearly that they are on the side of the illegal aliens and aginst the lowest common denominator, the American people.

peacenprosperity on June 28, 2007 at 11:26 PM

Liberals sulk and pout like spoiled children when they are rebuked and this dolt is no exception. What part of “illegal foreign nationals” is it that he doesn’t comprehend? The subjects of this issue have invaded our country, violated our national sovereignty and broken our laws. This entire diatribe by Menendez was nonsensical hyperbole. It’s as though he exists in some parallel universe where right is wrong, left is right and reason and logic simply do not exist.

Do not let them fool you, they know exactly what they are doing, have very clear goals and are in it for the long term.
It was very scary today listening to everyone celebrating as if the conflict is over. The leftists skulked back to their offices and started planning the next attack immediately. They are on the offensive and will have a radical bill up there very quickly. They think the American people are dim and shotsighted. I guarantee you they did not look at today as a defeat in private.
All the people who called and e-mailed about this bill for the last week need to continue calling and e-mailing about closing the borders. If we let up the leftists will overwhelm us.

SouthernGent on June 28, 2007 at 11:39 PM

What a load of crap!

For the vast majority against the Kennedy-McCain-Graham Scamnesty Bill the issue has never been about RACE!

I have no problem with immigrants who want to come here legally. I have no problem with opening the door wider for immigrants and temporary workers who want to come here LEGALLY and FOLLOW OUR LAWS.

What I don’t want is an unenforced and unguarded border that should be defended to protect us from LAW BREAKERS whether they be illegal entrants to our country who want to come to work and a chance for a better life, gang members who want to establish distribution networks for illegal drugs or terrorists who want to do harm to me and my fellow citizens. Disrespecting our laws on entry should never be tolerated. Entry into the US is a PRIVILEDGE, not a right.

I don’t give a damn what race an illegal entrant is, if they can’t follow the law they DO NOT BELONG IN THE USA!

Senator Menendez is obviously a 9/10 Democrat, the most dangerous of all. Suprising for a man whose State that shares a border with New York and New York City and he has the unmitigated GALL to lecture on FEAR. What a joke! Wanting to secure our borders from law breakers and terrorists has nothing to do with FEAR it is plain common sense and defending our homeland should be every American’s highest calling.

Perhaps the good Senator needs to be reminded of the Oath he took earlier this year:

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.

Keli on June 28, 2007 at 11:44 PM

Here’s my plan for a new immigration law:

1)Money is appropriated to finish The Great Fence
2)All illegal immigrants are given six months to register with the country. After registering with Immigration, they have another 3 months to return home. If they register, return to Mexico, and apply for a visa, they are guaranteed “first look” becuase they came forward.
3)Employers who have payed taxes for their illegal employees for the length of time employed, can request the specific employees be given Visas, after they have returned home for 3 months. If those employees background checks come out fine, and they are clean of any other problems, they are legally allowed back with a 1 year work visa, which would need to be renewed after a background check.
4)Illegals who do not use option 2 and 3 will be given no beneficial status. If arrested or found after the 6 month grace period, they will be identified, sent back to Mexico, and denied preferential treatment for legal return to the country.

There’s little tidbits more to this, but that’s the jist of it. Also, you can roll these timelines with seasonal employment in different parts of the country.

Vincenzo on June 28, 2007 at 11:49 PM

No, Bob, the American people won, you hispandering idiot!

Dave R. on June 28, 2007 at 11:50 PM

I forgot that any illegal who does apply for the Visa and is matched up to the company who paid taxes for that illegal will have to square up any business with the IRS before returning.

You will also need to levy STIFF STIFF fines on all companies hiring illegal workers, and more on those who don’t pay taxes on them.

Vincenzo on June 28, 2007 at 11:51 PM

…Seems like these people (Senators like Menendez)forget that they work of us, the citizens that put them in office. We don’t work for them and they don’t work for the citizens of other countries…Or, do they?…

Ben Here on June 28, 2007 at 11:51 PM

Yeah, there have been 7 seperate amnesties since 1986 and the big secret that fat Teddy and Bush don’t want you to know about is that this is all about keeping illegals pouring across the borders to keep their big business donors happy. It’s not the free market, it’s the global elite’s unquenchable thirst for low cost workers and huge profits. Americans cost too much to hire and big business could automate and mechanize but why… when illegals work so cheaply, and when their hurt or sick the government picks up the tab. Of course the South went thru this same thing about 150 years ago with slavery but some never learn from history.

I could live with it. All but this piece in number 2:

they are guaranteed “first look” becuase they came forward.

Sorry, but I just don’t support placing anyone who came here illegally in the first place in front of countless others who are trying to get in legally. They don’t deserve special treatment regardless of coming forward.

thedecider on June 29, 2007 at 12:06 AM

Here’s something to think about. My sister-in-law and her family came here legally from France. Everyone in their family speaks perfect English and she grew up here. They have spent over $100K in order to be here on an E visa that has no possibility of being converted to a green card or citizenship. She is attending college here to become a registered nurse, a profession that is in high demand in the US. They are required to have insurance and pay their own way, and are not eligible for any kind of social services (not that they would ask for any).

Tell me this, why in the world should somebody who disobeys US law jump to the front of the line ahead of my sister-in-law? Do we have an urgent crisis that is being solved by low-skill laborers from Mexico and Central America?

sonnyspats1 on June 29, 2007 at 12:20 AM

I think the most telling feature of this whole bill was how easy it was for “THE PEOPLE’S” voice to trigger a state fairish stage show of Senators showing their ass.

There is surely nothing to be afraid of behind the curtain my fellow citizens. Nothing but a bunch of rag-tag old lazy gullable fools dealing any kind of petty crap amidst half-hearted attempts to retain their “position” in Washington.

If our enemies have observed the same show as I we’ve lost everything fought so hard for and will surely be conquered if direction and leadership doesn’t changwe in drastic proportions and to dramatic extent.

1) Seal the borders. Move the National Guard bases in all the border states to the border and have all the National Guardsman in the country do their training there. Afterall we will be fighting in the desert for a long time to come.
2) Seize the occupational licenses, business licenses, liquor licenses, building permits of any one caught employing illegal aliens. They will not be allowed to even apply for the licenses back for 1 year.
3) Cut off all welfare and social aid to illegal aliens (except emergency medical treatment). Do not educate children who are in the country illegally. No drivers licenses. No work permits. Withhold federal funds from any state or city that is a sanctuary city.
4) Revoke the Certificate of Occupancy for any dwelling that is rented to an illegal alien and barr the property from being eligible for a new one for 1 year.
5) The law regarding children born in the US being citizens was enacted for the children of slaves. We don’t even have to change the law or the Constitution, it was always misused. Just have the Supreme Court clarify.
6) Revoke the charter of any bank doing business with illegal aliens.
7) Strengthen the requirements for citzenship and streamline the process to a maximum process time of 1 year. Do away with chain immigration. If we have 5 spots left and a qualified applicant wants to bring 3 members of his family, if they all pass the requirements we wil have 2 spots left.
8) Provide free transportation to the country of the illegal aliens choosing.

Do all this and you can just ignore the illegal aliens as they head for the border.

can fred! claim “federalist party” status? and break the mold?? guaranteed a pro-business gop puppet will not float!

only a strong defense, limited, i mean 1/10 of current fed size, circa 1959 fed, candidate has a slim
chance against the commie left.

are we doomed if fred! is a GOP candidate? discuss!

Comment, please. stategy is everything! BMG is great but must pull the golden ring!

Shame how they never say, “we lost, we thought we were right, but the public has spoken and we will listen”. They always act, when the public stands and fights, that they don’t represent us…us. Why not say, I hear you and I will fight for you.
Arrogant you know what’s.
Spoiled you know what’s.
And worthless you know what’s.

right2bright on June 29, 2007 at 1:20 AM

It’s amazing how they skew the facts. We have laws on the books already, what’s the problem enforcing what’s there already?
Perhaps funding the laws?

Other BIG LOSERS today. Criminal Cardinal Mahony and L.A. Mayor Tony Villar. Rumor has it Mahony may resign within a year. Villar’s wife has filed for divorce since he knocked up a Telemundo anchorwoman here in L.A. It was comical watching him talk about family living as immigrants. Let’s ask his wife, Corrina, what she thinks about his family life. Does this mean the baby will truly be an……………………………ANCHOR BABY? BWaaaaaahahahahahahaha

You’d almost think he regards them as his constituents. Doubtless he does.

Of course, BoB Menendez and every other bottom feeder who tried to ram this down our throats see’s the 12 million+ ILLEGAL Immigrants as constituents. After all, they’re simply just 12 million+ Undocumented Americans Voters, just itchin’ to vote for a Osama/Billary ticket in 2008… and time was of the essence!

AZCON on June 29, 2007 at 1:43 AM

I keep getting census forms from some National Republican group. I forget if it’s the RNC or the RNSC. I just mailed one back to them at their expense and I had written BUILD THE FENCE about 10 times and checked the NO MONEY box and changed the liberal Dumocrat to RINO and listed Graham, Spector, Hagel and whoever else I could think of at the moment. They asked a question about excessive government spending and I commented about Repulican earmarks. Smaller government and I asked about Medicare D the biggest government program in many years and it still didn’t buy any votes for Republicans. They have called me and I told them that I used to support President Bush, but that I changed my mind when he started supporting this “incomprehensive” immigration bill. I also told them I would NOT be sending them any money at the national level because they just turn around and give it to RINO’s like Lincoln Chaffee. We need to keep up the pressure on them in every way we can until they get the message that we don’t want compromise on basic principles when we CAN WIN if we fight hard enough. The Dumocrats are cowardly bullies who will turn tail and run when anyone actually STANDS UP to them. If they are afraid to go on FNC for a debate, how will they be able to face up to anyone? That is what makes me so angry with the Republicans. Too many of them act like they want to be liked by the media and the Dumocrats and end up being nothing but despised kiss-ups by everyone. The Republicans have acted like the Dumocrats act with the terrorists. If we just treat them nice, then they will like us and everything will be just peachy. NO THEY WON’T. Neither the Dumocrats nor the terrorists are ever going to like you NO MATTER what you do, so don’t try to appease or pacify them in any way. BOTH of them will only respect you if you consistently STAND UP to them.

From Voinobitch to this nut; it’s no wonder our country’s in such a state of disarray. Not only are they clueless and out of touch, they really make the U.S. look bad with these kind of soapbox speeches.
So I guess I’m a Xenophobe, too. So goes the desire to be a nation of laws…

nationspatriotcom on June 29, 2007 at 4:28 AM

Nothing will change. How hard would it have been to just put up a barrier to appease the voters? That they refused to do it is indicative that the powers that be want, no – demand, an open border.

You can call for 2000 border guards, which is meaningless if you really need 10,000 and then go on to only fund for 1000. It’s all a shell game. They are not even subtle about it.

DoctorDentons on June 29, 2007 at 6:40 AM

Our two Senators in NJ are a disgrace.

Hopefully we can get rid of Lautenberg next year.

Mr. Bingley on June 29, 2007 at 6:56 AM

They are “those people”. It simply means the people who aren’t “we the people”… those people who aren’t us – legal citizens of the United States of America.

The term “aliens” is just as prejorative as “those people”.

amend2 on June 29, 2007 at 7:06 AM

“On behalf of those people….”

Hey, isn’t Fort Dix in New Jersey? I guess he does represent those people!

Lurking Vet on June 29, 2007 at 7:17 AM

No Menendez, The lowest common denominator lost.

We have laws in this country. Enforce them.

BobK on June 29, 2007 at 7:30 AM

I join Vincenzo and Mr. Bingley in apologizing for this miserable excuse for a senator human being. Sadly, Jersey is perhaps the most corrupt state in the union; it is also one of the bluest. Coincidence?

IrishEi on June 29, 2007 at 7:43 AM

Look, Senator Amnesty here is just doing what Democrats always do when they lose a vote, and even when they win a vote…

Demonize their opponents.

So as a proud member of the fear mongering, hatefilled, lowest common denominator in the great land, I have this to say back to you senator amnesty:

WE WON. YOU LOST. NA-NA, NANA NAH. PFFFFFFTTTTTTTTT…..

Always Right on June 29, 2007 at 7:59 AM

Guess he does not understand “We the People” well as he thinks he understands “Those People”.

The Senators from New Jersey are not alone in disgrace.

Wade on June 29, 2007 at 8:03 AM

If only we had harped on this issue last year, dolts like Menendez might be out of a job

Hold that thought for next election. And you guys from NJ don’t need to apologize, your two senators couldn’t have brought on this mess by themselves.

oldleprechaun on June 29, 2007 at 8:27 AM

I remember the good old days, of Rumsfeld and Ashcroft, and an administration that was actually fighting a war to win, insteading of acting in ways that make Democrats look principled and brave.

But I’ve figured all this out – al-Qaeda has somehow found a way to turn the entire Bush administration into icky Pod People. That’s the only logical explanation for what’s been going on.

Halley on June 29, 2007 at 8:48 AM

ne0365 on June 29, 2007 at 8:59 AM

Can anyone even remember a Sen. or even a tv or radio talk show host saying “those people”. I can’t. I’ll say it for them “Those People” ran me and my family out of our last home, a home I worked on for 15 years. It WAS our chance at the Amer. dream..

Legions on June 29, 2007 at 9:04 AM

The word unctuous springs to mind.

N. O'Brain on June 29, 2007 at 9:09 AM

It’s a bitch when those whom you allegedly represent want something other than what you want to hand them.

Eat it, Menendez.

If I wanted to open the floodgates to a 20 million Western European illegals, well, what would that make me?

How is that any different than this?

drjohn on June 29, 2007 at 9:10 AM

When you see pandering corrupt politicians criticizing Americans for standing up for their country, it makes you wonder what kind of people it takes to put people of this deficient character in office. We HAVE TO scrutinize every candidate, because the stakes are too high to have our country stolen from us by crooked politicians who put theirselves above our country.

These Jersey weenies…pikers, I tell ya. They need to come to Chicago and learn from the great one: Richie “Squeaky” Daley.

You just gotta take your hat off to this guy. Not only does he have as many Mexicans as any mayor outside of LA, he’s got City, County, and State government under his control, and divvied up on a racial spoils system.

Vote? Hell, yes, they vote.

Jaibones on June 29, 2007 at 9:17 AM

I have never been prouder to be FROM NJ and with wankers like this I will certainly never go back

400lb Gorilla on June 29, 2007 at 9:21 AM

Let’s face it, Menendez cares only for those of his racial extraction and is willing to trash and destroy any and all of the “common denominator” to accomplish their ends.

rplat on June 29, 2007 at 9:30 AM

This guy is a joke. He got put in there by Corzine only because he was the lesser of the evils to pick from in the NJ Dem cesspool. He’s the typical corrupt Hudson county dem, which in itself is redundant, and then he tries using scare tactics to criticize people using scare tactics.

Kendrick on June 29, 2007 at 9:43 AM

“Those People.” What about “those people” who happen to be hispanic who thought this was a terrible bill?? Are they racists, too, Senor Menendez?? There are a lot of hispanics that were against this piece of crap bill. And I’m tired of being called a racist. Being married into a hispanc family, let me tell you they can be some of the most racist people around. Not all of them, but some. Oh, but I forgot, minorities can’t be racist. Yea, right.

StephC on June 29, 2007 at 10:20 AM

Where did he come up with the phrase “Those people”? I haven’t heard it during any discussions and I haven’t seen it here at HA except in reference to Menendez and his slimy cohorts in the Senate.

Newt has an excellent plan to track down all “Those people” Menendez was refering to…

Menendez should take better care when quoting from the Statue of Liberty. “I lift my lamp beside the golden *door*” not “I lift my lamp beside the phantom fence.”

Halley on June 29, 2007 at 8:48 AM

I keep wondering, who is that man and what have they done to the REAL Mr. Bush? The real Bush we used to love is probably being held against his will in a cave in Afghanistan by aliens in cahoots with al-qaeda, leaving the evil pod-bush to confuse and scare us

Keli on June 29, 2007 at 10:55 AM

conversation:(slightly OT but immigration related)
I met my mother and one of her friends at Olive Garden for lunch on the 26th. My mother lives 500+ miles aways and spending some time with her and her friend was somewhat enlightning.
In the face of the amnesty situation we now face, I posed the question to my moms friend Mrs.Fanello.(strong local Italian family) I asked exactly this : “Sue, what did your husbands people do when they came here? how did they react?”
After several minutes of background about sneaking to the USA, year 1910, via Canada after a long boat ride from Italy (stowaways) they set up a truly American Dream.
The Fanellos, to this day have very sucessful manufacturing plants, concrete companies and farms in the immediate area. But the amazing thing is this, her husband Joe is the 8th of 10 children, all born between late 20′s and 30′s. None of whom speak a lick of Italian, at least not enough to carry a conversation, perhaps a few curse words here and there.
The kids were not allowed to speak Italian, were told with conviction that they were AMERICANS, and made to act as such. Mrs. Fanello didnt have a problem with me asking “…your people” knowing its not racist but a matter of fact. The common demoniator was were Americans, but my stating “your people” she knew immediatly what I was referring to.
Were not haters or racist if we use the term “those people” or “your people”. You are racists, however, in the eyes of the elitist if your a white American using these terms.

palefaced on June 29, 2007 at 11:05 AM

Menendez is the lowest common denominator for corruption and immorality. The good thing about yesterday. It makes the enemies of our country so easy to see. NIX THE 46

volsense on June 29, 2007 at 11:13 AM

The minute you disagree with any of these people you are called a racist. Thinking that will shut you up or make your feel guilty. I said if it makes their tail go up calling me that, so be it. I know that I am not.
I heard this on a show one time and it’s the God’s truth by a guest black female doctor saying “That if you prefer vanilla ice cream to chocolate ice cream you are a racist”. Honestly!!!
See, how stupid they are. It is not even worth talking to them. Sadly, some of these fools are in leadership rolls that effect our lives and future.
