Rep. Don Young "Wetbacks": Republicans Just Can't Help Their Anti-Latino Ways!
They are so awful, they don't even recognize their own racism when it spews out of their mouths!
Case in Point: Republican Congressman Don Young called Latinos the deplorable, racist term "Wetbacks." Here is what he said: "My father had a ranch; we used to have 50 - 60 WETBACKS to pick tomatoes.."
Can you imagine? This guy is a Congressman. He refers to the hard working Latinos that his father hired to pick tomatoes as "WETBACKS." He does not refer to them as people. He does not know their Legal Status. He does not refer to their hard-working nature. He does say their hard work enabled his father to be successful. He does not even call them Human Beings.
Instead he refers to them by the derogatory, racist term "WETBACKS."
When his words were reported and he felt the heat from his colleagues, he attempted an apology -- to the reporters. In many ways, the apology was WORSE than his racist Term. Young said, "I used a term that was commonly used during my days growing up on a farm in Central California. I know that this term is not used in the same way nowadays, and I meant no disrespect.” He didn't apologize for his racist comments. He didn't apologize to Latinos. He didn't even call them Human Beings. Instead, his apology was to the media for getting caught exposing his racism.
Young, like Romney cannot help himself for his elitist, racist views. Young also agreed with Romney's 47% comments. Republicans will soon be extinct and the only ones they can blame is themselves!
