This is the latest in a series on the use of the race card for political gain:
Democrat Loretta Sanchez (CA-47) is being challenged by Republican Van Tran, who is of Vietnamese descent. Sanchez made news when she said:
“El Viatnamese y los republicanos tratando de tomar distancia de nosotros este asiento.”
For our Vietnamese readers, here is what she said:
“Các Viatnamese và Cộng Hòa đang cố gắng để lấy chỗ ngồi ra xa chúng ta.”
For our readers who did not get with the program and only understand the language of Anglo-centric cultural imperialism, watch the video (first take off your beer helmets and put down the cheese fries, please, we wouldn’t want any accidents):
Can you imagine if Van Tran had said something along the lines of “let’s take the seat from the Hispanics”? There would have been a mainstream media firestorm.
The coverage is growing slowly because Tran has not let the issue drop and the right blogosphere is pushing it, but nothing near what would have happened had the perp been a Republican.
There is no better example of mainstream media bias, and how Democrats get a pass when they use racial politics to motivate their base.
If I were an American of Vietnamese descent, I would ask Sanchez the following questions:
- Ai làm bạn Queen?
- Bạn đã bao giờ nghĩ về những gì bạn sẽ làm gì khi bạn có để có được một công việc thực sự?
- Có một trường học nơi họ dạy cho bạn để nói chuyện tào lao như thế này?
And then I would say:
