"The Vietnamese and the Republicans are trying to take away this seat from us."
If a Republican had said this, the MSM would be literally crucifying him. But because it's a liberal Democrat this won't ever be covered by any of the liberal propaganda networks. This story has only moved onto Politico.com this morning and has since been bumped as being unimportant enough to stay in it's banner position.
“The Vietnamese and the Republicans are, with an intensity, trying to take 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,” Sanchez, 50, said in an interview that aired nationally Sept. 19 on Jorge Ramos’ political talk show "Al Punto."
Left Coast Rebel has this to say:
Isn't it shocking when the mask of inclusiveness and multiculturalism is lifted and the face of collectivism is revealed by members of the ruling class? Even better, isn't it amazing when one that uses the race card as an unyielding bludgeoning tool actually is proved a racist?Here is her opponent, Van Tran. Had Tran said something about taking away this seat from Hispanics you can bet your sweet....that the MSM would have instigated a firestorm that would see him dropping out of the race.
What this all boils down to is that it's ok to be a racist if you're liberal...but if you lean anywhere to the right, you should be publicly castigated and flogged.
