Barbara Boxer isn’t the only California politician with a sense of entitlement. While she may think she deserves her Senate seat because of all her (self-professed) hard work, another Golden State Democrat thinks she deserves her seat on account of her ethnicity and political affiliation.
Don’t believe me? Take a look at this video:
So, an election should be decided not based on one’s qualifications to serve and her record in office, but on the fact that she’s a Latina Democrat?!?! Now, there are many fine Latinas in America today, indeed, I’m rooting for one to be the next Governor of the Land of Enchantment, but it’s not her ethnicity which qualifies Susana Martinez to serve.
This video leads John Hinderaker to wonder:
It will be interesting to see whether a single prominent Democrat will denounce, or even distance himself from, Sanchez’s racism. My guess is that the number of Democrats who do so will be zero. If that is the case, what can we conclude about the Democratic Party, historically the party of slavery and Jim Crow?
Just as there are many fine Latino candidates, like the next Senator from the Sunshine State, so too are there many fine Vietnamese candidates. California’s Van Tran (Sanchez’s replacement) appears to be one of them. You can support his campaign here.
