I’ve been waiting to post this blog … waiting to see IF and/or WHEN it might get national media attention.
It’s a good thing I wasn’t holding my breath.
Truth is … this is playing out as I knew it would.
It would have been a really big story if a Republican had made the remarks, but once again, Liberal mainstream media outlets are blind, deaf and dumb when a Democrat is involved.
Before I continue, I don’t care which side of the political fence you are on … don’t you want fairness? I do, but too many want only one side told.
So, here’s the post I’ve held back until now.
Alex Sink is a Democrat running for Congress in the Tampa Bay district of Florida.
In a debate, she said we need immigration reform so Floridians would have house maids and gardeners.
Here is her full statement:
“Immigration reform is important in our country. We have a lot of employers over on the beaches that rely upon workers and especially in this high-growth environment, where are you going to get people to work to clean our hotel rooms or do our landscaping?”
Any national coverage? No.
Any backlash? No.
Any response at all from Hispanic/Cuban and other immigrants … legal or illegal?
Any apology? Why should she?
Such a racist and demeaning remark. There’s no way to defend it, but there’s no one attacking it.
Because a Democrat said it … instead of a Republican … I guess it never even happened.
But yet … it did.
