OC Republicans Rebuke Dana Rohrabacher's Anti-Mexican Ways for First Time, Like, Ever

Earlier this week, Clockwork Coker reported that Dana Rohrabacher (R-Once Had a Pedophile Work for Him) called GOP senator Marco Rubio a "weasel" because of the Floridian's efforts to try and pass immigration reform. Never mind that Rubio's proposal solves nothing, is punitive, and perfectly befitting of the GOP's stance on the issue--one illegal given amnesty is too many illegals given amnesty, and Dana's mad about it.

Dana's been doing this stupidity for years now, with nary a peep from his fellow GOPers--until today.

In a self-important press release, the Lincoln Club of Orange County stated that Dana's wrong, wrong wrong.

"Just as the country is struggling to start a serious, adult debate about immigration," blabs Michael Capaldi, the club's former chairman and eternal douche, "Dana Rohrabacher jumps in, turns up the volume, and blasts responsible leaders--in his own party...Marco Rubio has worked harder than anyone--Democrat or Republican--to fix our broken immigration policies, policies that make no sense for anyone..The senator deserves thanks, not petty attacks."

While I guess we should congratulate the Lincoln Club for finally rebuking Rohrabacher, Capaldi's statement and the rest of the press release couldn't be more self-serving if they were a lazy Susan. The club has been advocating a type of immigration reform for years, but it's predicated on essentially restarting the disastrous bracero program and allowing the most limited type of amnesty imaginable. And their continued deification of Rubio when the coño has done little to nothing on the issue shows why the Lincoln Club is taking its Aztlanista-lite position: they realize their party is slowly dying, and that they need Mexis to join lest they become as irrelevant and gabacho as the American TP Party.

Still, a rebuke is a rebuke, so we'll give Capaldi that. I'll drink to your self-serving party tonight with a shot of Patrón, which I'll promptly spit into the gutter where the GOP belongs...right next to the Dems, of course!

Also, I'd remind the Mexican how many times I've agreed with various OCWeekly columnists that it's way past time for Rohrabacher to make a permavisit to the ol' crazy retired congresscritters home.

As I recall being taught by a certain prominent OC Mexican columnist, he'd pick on OC Dems if only there were any OC Dems to pick on... ;-)

Your Gustavo-picks-on-the-GOP schtick is tiresome and SO wrong. Why don't you ever whine when I pick on the Dems? No, instead you cheer and praise me!

Mexican is a nationality. You can be bigoted against a group of people from a specific country and it would still be shitty.

"Never mind that Rubio's proposal solves nothing,"

And yet you seem to be endorsing it.

"The senator deserves thanks, not petty attacks."

Sounds like Capaldi has a man crush on Rubio.

"Kurt, when we start having immigration policies like Mexico, China, North Korea then we cease being a great country"

Uh, you realize that when we had a huge middle class, when we built beautiful *branch* libraries in third rank towns in second rank counties, when we put a man on the moon, we had tight  and ethnically balanced immigration. Now, after 40 years of legal mass immigration and de facto open borders, immigration swamped California has NAEP scores on the level of Mississippi, and we can't even keep a shuttle program running.

OOPS... I missed Gustavo's final paragraph about the GOP *and* Dems. Now I'm beginning to think there's hope for him again. Damn I'm such a softie. :-) Sorry G!

It's a two-party plutocracy. Both groups use and abuse minorities (and others) to their own small-minded ends. Repubs like the cheap labor, Dems like the cheap votes.

Yawn. More partisan hatred from Gustavo. You'd think he'd be smarter.

Someone explain to me why alot of chicanos (not sure what that means but think it means mexican originated citizens of the us) want immigration reform. It's your social services that will be used up too. Your taxes that will go up. Your schools that will suffer. Your jobs that will be undercut (low skilled wages anyways). I know quite a few that feel different and want the illegals out but I have a feeling there's lots of Gustavo's out there who are citizens but still want to give amnesty to the illegals. Are they just racists ?

Now if only the GOP could find away to embrace women and the gays...then we could truly be a plutocracy and only have one party.

Kurt, when we start having immigration policies like Mexico, China, North Korea then we cease being a great country. I guess that's something to aspire too, isn't it.

How does that moron Rohrabacker keep getting re-elected? I know OC is conservative, but I didn't think it was stupid.

Regardless of one's views on immigration, the GOP continues to serve feet and shoe soles on the subject.

Gustavo, are you aware that the Lincoln Club did not endorse Rohrbacher in the last election?  He is a total embarassment!!

I think we should have the same immigration laws as the country of Mexico. Problem solved.

Anti-Mexican? Mexican is a race? So we should just open the FUCKING border to anybody?

George W. Bush opened his first California campaign headquarters in Huntington Park. Their former mayor became the U.S. Treasurer. Krispy Kreme did their first Latino rollout there. Shhh.
