Get your facts straight.
You need to get your facts straight. There were "wet" patrols set up by Cesar Chavez and his group. There was even violence between the UFW and the illegals who were happy to be strike breakers and the Teamsters sent in to protect the scab labor (the illegals).

The reasons for bringing in illegals haven't changed one iota. Obama doesn't really happen to love one type of foreign people more than he likes Americans, the illegals are about cheap labor and bringing down wages.

It was "a term that was commonly used during my days growing up on a farm in Central California"...

We do? We have Republicans saying this? Or do we have one Republican that said this?

'Wetb4ck' is an offensive term in Texas and it is one I do not use.

The republicans have done a lot of mistakes latelly

Ie

"When is a legitimate rape, the whole female body just shut it down"... Mr. akin

The ******* comment eta : wetb4ck seems to be blanked here in cd forum.

The guy at the CPAC saying we should be segregated and that slaves should have thanked their masters for food and shelter

And lets not forget Romney and the 47% tape.


In a world we we are in a 24 seconds news cycle, the GOP keeps doing it to themselves. The gift that keeps on giving. Please let them keep talking as much as possible. Lets open those mics and allow them to talk.

It must be okay to call them "mojados" which is the Spanish equivalent of that term. "Mojados" means "wet ones". It's a term used all the time by Mexicans and in Mexico.


El Mojado Acaudalado - Tigres del Norte - YouTube

This song is a propaganda piece to promote the idea of Mexicans getting filthy rich by going to the USA illegally and returning to Mexico as very wealthy people. There's even the suggestion that American women offer themselves to Mexican men as part of the enticement. "Mojado acaudalado" means "super rich wet one".

So? They use the term "mojado" all the time. It's not a racist slur word. It means "illegal alien" which is not a race at all.

But they are not held at the standard our politicians should be held. They do not represent the american people. Wet b4ck is an offensive term, he knows and he apologized. But to be honest i believe people should just the gop bigots talk.


Just let them show their true colors.

As long as the term is applied to those who are breaking our laws, entering illegally and committing felony document fraud then what's the problem? They are not good law abiding people so what term should they be given?

Not only that but with the Democrats it is about securing the majority of the Hispanic vote. If a path to citizenship is in the cards with the Democrats you know damned well they are looking at increasing their future voting base also.
