Longtime readers know my contempt for GOP Rep. Don Young goes back to the very beginning days of this blog.
He is now in hot water for calling laborers who picked tomatoes on his family farm “wetbacks.” (Hey, never mind that his family was breaking the law and employing illegal aliens!)
The archaic, offensive term comes from Eisenhower’s deportation programs “Operation Wetback” in the 1950s.
At a time when the GOP says it’s trying to “modernize,” Young’s diarrhea of the mouth shows why the party is such a joke. These gaffes are the symptom of the D.C. GOP’s incumbency protection racket.
That’s the larger offense at work here.
I’ll repeat it again for the GOP deaf and dumb:
Side note: When your liberal friends go on their smug tirades about Don Young, you can politely remind them that stupid, old entrenched incumbents who say offensively racist things aren’t just a GOP problem.
