California’s 47th: Democrats’ racism and lies
It’s what desperate Democrats do best:
Democratic Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez, D-Santa Ana, said in a recent Spanish-language interview that “the Vietnamese” and Republicans are trying to wrest control of her seat in Congress, from which “we have done so much for our community.”
Her opponent, Republican Assemblyman Van Tran – who immigrated from Vietnam — asked for an apology Thursday. He described Sanchez’s remarks as “offensive and wrong.”
Sanchez, D-Santa Ana, is facing her toughest re-election challenge in years, separated in polls by only a few percentage points from Tran. Her reference to “the Vietnamese” has bounced around the blogosphere in recent days and fired up talk radio.
“During the interview,” her campaign said in a written statement, “Rep. Sanchez was referencing those in the Vietnamese community who are supporting her opponent.”
“The Vietnamese and the Republicans are, with an intensity, (trying) to take this seat – this seat (from which) we have done so much for our community – to take this seat and give it to this Van Tran, who is very anti-immigrant and very anti-Hispanic.”
You can almost feel the fear and desperation of Democrats this cycle.
Notice the sense of entitlement: “her seat”, Republicans want to “take this seat and give it to this Van Tran”, etc.
Then come the lies about being “anti-immigrant”. It’s hard to be “anti-immigrant” when you’re an immigrant yourself, as Van Tran is, having come from Vietnam.
The big thing about this story is that Sanchez had no problem race-baiting and spewing her racism on Univision, thinking that “her community” would be the only people listening. As the article notes, she was dead wrong as this story has been bouncing around the blogosphere for most of this week. It’s a testament to the conservative blogosphere that this story is even getting this much attention.
Conservatives and Republicans in the 47th Congressional district of California should get active and join the “Vietnamese” in ousting the racist Loretta Sanchez.
