Reid calls language proposal racist

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid called a proposal to make English the official language "racist" on the Senate floor yesterday.

"This amendment is racist. I think it's directed basically to people who speak Spanish," the Democrat said during the already tense debate over immigration reform.

in the same article---

"Our federal wallet is stretched to the limit by illegal aliens getting welfare, food stamps, medical care and other benefits without paying taxes," he said in 1993. "These programs were not meant to entice freeloaders and scam artists from around the world." Earlier this year, Mr. Reid confessed on the Senate floor that his anti-immigrant fervor "mostly lasted about a week or two" before his wife brought him around to the more open position he holds today. But nearly a year after his "freeloaders" statement, Mr. Reid was on the Senate floor criticizing immigrants again and worrying about their cultural impact.

They just can't help it can they. Republicans are just racist, it's like their default setting, hardwired into their iddy biddy little brains. Yet this Senator feels perfectly free to say things that would get a republican Senator brutally savaged in the press, I mean, he couldn't be an insensitive ass, after all, he's a democrat. He couldn't be a hypocrit, that would mean he'd have to take responsibility for what he says.

Double standards from the democrats, who'd a thought it?

What makes his statement especially dumb,

And it's a bipartisan issue, according to the poll, which found that 92 percent of Republicans and 82 percent of Democrats approve making English the country's official language.

So are all those democrats racist too, or just the republican's Senator? Really, I'd like an answer from a democrat. I'm so friggin tired of the "Big Lie", repeated over and over and over. I've never used racist words, in my family it wasn't done, it was hateful and rude, so we were taught better. A working class republican family. I know a dozen so called good democrats who regularly use the N word to describe other Americans. Who are open about it. So I get outraged when I read crap like this. They should check their own poor white voter base and see just who is supporting them. They might be shocked at what they find. The democrats had better learn to look under their own skirts first, because from where I sit,

they look like idiots.

I found the picture of the Senator from a Google search that led me to Powerpundit. Another writer I'll add to my list. And of course the usual Drudge link.
