Republican Senator George Allen sticks foot in his mouth...Seems to be the rule nowadays...But you CAN do something about it...

"Mr. Mehlman,
has it become the practice of the Republican Party to single out non-white citizens as foreign born naturalized citizens for no better reason other than the color of their skin? The gall of which strikes me as peculiar, Mr. Mehlman, given that a very high percentage of our young men and women fighting your "precious" war in Iraq are non-white men and women. Young men and women serving our nation with courage. The likes of which will never be known by lily-livered punks who have the audacity to serve as Senators, and do something as moronic and ignorant as singling out a non-white member of the audience and spew a racial slur his way."-excerpt from a petition provided by moveon.org to Republican National Committee Chairman, Ken Mehlman, urging the organization to stop all support of Senator George Allen's bid for re-election. Personal comment section written and signed by Hector Gomez, Saturday, August 19, 2006.
I received a forwarded email from Ignacio Almaguer yesterday concerning a petition provided by moveon.org. It didn't take me long to process the sheer stupidity with which Senator Allen bases his actions on. Apparently at a campaign stop, Senator Allen singled out a member of the audience who was of Indian descent and called him a "macaque" (spelling has differed among the blogosphere, others have spelled it "macaca"). The word is a derogatory term meaning "monkey". The Senator, in all his fine brilliance, went on to say, "Welcome to America". The citizen he was speaking to was born and raised in Virginia. I signed the petition, and urge all readers of RGV Politics to do the same. You can visit the site directly at www.moveon.org or visit the petition web page at:

Hillary isn't part of this administration and she sure isn't on the right. What about Democrat Sen. Robert Byrd (KKK)?

Have to say I agree with the responses. The Left and the Democrats have no monopoly on virtue. And, moveon.org is not really up on my list of reputable organizations on either side of the aisle. Nevertheless Race-based hate is stupid regardless of who it comes from. I would like to know, though, why is it always such a crime coming from the right, and a tragic but forgivable mistake if it comes from the left.

Sincerely,
A new RGV Texan
