He’s at it again. More Harry Reid racist comments; speaking to a mostly Hispanic crowd trying to drum up votes for his re-election bid in Nevada, Senator Harry Reid said, “I don’t know how anyone of Hispanic heritage could be a Republican.” Harry seems to have that foot in mouth disease especially when it comes to matters of race.
Mr. Reid has stirred up the proverbial storm once again with insensitive remarks while trying to pander for votes. Last year if you’ll remember Reid stepped in it big time when he said that President Barack Obama didn’t have a “Niegro dialect.” As if the pasty white Reid would know what that was.
Now that he’s in the battle for his political life with Sharron Angle, Reid is pulling out all the stops. He’s an ardent supporter of Obama’s lawsuit against Arizona, he opposes building a fence on the US Mexican border and he basically has never seen an amnesty bill he didn’t like. Let’s pander to Hispanics, what do you say Harry?
Sharron Angle’s campaign put out this statement regarding Harry Reid’s racist comments:
“Reid has said he’ll do more if re-elected–apparently that means more insensitive racial comments, more gaffes, more lame attempts to distract from what he has done to destroy the Nevada economy. With that said, I suppose Nevadans should just be glad he didn’t say anything racist about Hispanic people’s skin tone or ‘dialect’ this time.”
It’s amazing to me how democrats automatically assume that all people of color or all minorities automatically fall into their camp. Aren’t they supposed to be the party with the open minds? Aren’t they supposed to be the most enlightened bunch around?
Harry Reid’s racist comments once again prove that they are anything but. Democrats are the first to scream race when they think they’ve been wronged (ala Rangel and Watethers) but they’re also the first to try and use race into guilting groups to vote for them as well.
