Oh, the hypocrisy, the hypocrisy.
In an interview with Jorge Ramos, Univision’s anchorman, California congresswoman Rep. Loretta Sanchez (D-CA), who replaced the great “B-1 Bob” Dornan, discusses the tough November election she faces.
Incredibly, Ms. Sanchez gets her full-blown xenophobe on as she airs her concerns.
At the 2:20 mark she states (and kudos to this blogger for doing the original translation as the interview is in Spanish):
” … the Vietnamese and the Republicans are — with an intensity — trying to take away this seat, this seat that we [Democrats] have done so much for our community, take away this seat from us and give it to this Van Tran, who’s very anti-immigrant and very anti-Latino.”
What a sense of entitlement from the Marie Antoinette of Orange County!
Meanwhile, Ramos, an outspoken opponent of Arizona’s SB 1070, doesn’t take the congresswoman to task for her smear against Mr. Tran, who was born in Saigon, for crying out loud. He also stands an excellent chance of replacing la Lo-San and has been endorsed by the Tea Party Express. Go, Van!
Nor did Ramos use the opportunity to remind his guest that, once upon a time, she was Loretta Brixey (her married name), a moderate Republican.
Meanwhile, the pair go on to yammer on about comprehensive immigration reform with Loretta “Cry Me a River” Sanchez claiming that the attitude of the country (politically-speaking) is “very anti-immigrant” (4:18 mark).
To the Latino community, If we don’t win in November there will be no votes for reform for ten or 20 years.
The California Queen of Hispanic Identity Politics has spoken.
