GOP Meltdown 2012: Mapping Racist Tweets from the Presidential Election

Data-mapping experts from the Floating Sheep blog mapped geo-located Tweets containing racist language during the build-up to the US election. I’m sure the results will shock you. Concentrated racism in the South? No way! As a resident of Georgia and having watched the campaign as it affected my neighbors, my only surprise is that Georgia wasn’t #1. I guess that’s part of what makes Alabama and Mississippi such magical places! Click here for details and methodology behind this image.

Mitt Romney’s Racist Joke At A 1% Fundraiser

As Mitt Romney was giving a speech at the Los Angeles Hispanic Chamber of Commerce yesterday, a video was being leaked from a Romney private fund raiser held in the residence of one of his 1% supporters.  Judging by the camera position, someone was being sneaky and getting a recording of a speech that Romney certainly didn’t want leaving that room.  Well, in this day and age, there is no such thing as complete privacy.  Now we can let the real Mitt tell you how he feels.

“My dad, as you probably know, was the governor of Michigan and was the head of a car company. But he was born in Mexico… and had he been born of, uh, Mexican parents, I’d have a better shot at winning this. But he was unfortunately born to Americans living in Mexico. He lived there for a number of years. I mean, I say that jokingly, but it would be helpful to be Latino.”

That’s right, kids.  Romney thinks things would be better for him if he had been born Latino instead of drawing the short straw and being born white, rich beyond most of our wildest dreams, and ruggedly handsome.  The poor man has suffered so much, as we all know from the RNC, and all he wants is to be a minority.

Rep. Charlie Gonzalez of San Antonio had the following to say: “It’s not about being a Latino that would make Romney a better candidate,” Gonzalez said. “Latinos, and all Americans, look at the substance of a candidate’s proposals to determine who is the better candidate and who best represents the priorities of their community. That is why upon examining the policies willingly supported by Romney on the economy, health care, and immigration, Latinos overwhelmingly support President Obama.”

Now is your time, loyal GOP defenders, to step up once again to declare yourselves innocent.  The truth keeps coming out, though.  When among their own kind and unaware that any outsiders are listening, even Republican Presidential Candidates are racists.
