Default Bush's response to Mexico Disaster!

Just got this in my email.

A big earthquake with the strength of 8.1 on the Richter scale has hit Mexico.

Two million Mexicans have died and over a million are injured.

The country is totally ruined and the government doesn't know where to start with providing help to rebuild. The rest of the world is in shock.

Canada is sending troopers to help the Mexican army control the riots.

Saudi Arabia is sending oil.

Other Latin American counties are sending supplies.

The European community (except France) is sending food and money.

The Bush administration, not to be outdone, is sending two million replacement (was "Mexicans") edit: *persons who are citizens of Mexico.

God Bless America!

This post is a great example of a liberal democrat getting away with a post that has anything to do with race...but when a conservative says something, he/she is a racist.

Which was worse, my pic of the Arab guy with the bucket of scum on his shoulder (aptly titled Arab Scumbucket)...or Lurikeen's comments about replacement Mexicans?

There is a double standard in this country when it comes to cons/libs in regards to the slightest racial comments.

Technically, the comments aren't mine. I recieved that political humor in my email and thought I would pass it on to the board.

I suppose it could be considered a "racist" posting... I don't know, are "Mexicans" a race? I always thought Mexicans were considered hispanic. If anything, the initial posting isn't racist but pokes fun at a nationality. So, it isn't a politically correct posting, much like making fun of Polish people.

/shrug

I apologize to any Mexicans who may have taken offense to my posting. I will edit my original posting to be more politically correct.

Good thing you are a liberal...otherwise you'd be labeled a racist for the rest of your career...no matter how you changed your posting.

I am not sure... we liberals are expected to "flip-flop" back and forth.

I hate quoting the damn dictionary so I'll let someone else do it or look it up. The 2nd definition under race mentions nationality. Kinda how women from Russia are depicted as mail order brides (some guy pointed that out in a imdb.com forum), it's a bash on their nationality which once again can be seen as racist because it's part of race.

I really didn't see it as racist cause well, a Mexican is a citizen of Mexico. I'm assuming the 2 million are the illegals or still of Mexican citizenship. I see it more as a than a racial bashing. Now something I see more questionable is labeling every hispanic/latin as Mexican, whether they be a Puerto Rican immigrant or being an American citizen and being of Mexican decent.

It isnt racism, it is xenophobia.

Xenophobia: hatred of foreigners.

When you say candaians are dumb, it is xenophobia.
When you say all white people are dumb, it is racism.

So no..

If two million people died it would be all over the news. And well, it's not.

Not to mention, two million people dieing in an earth quake is a bit ridiculous.

Sometimes it's hard to tell if Lurikeen's for or against Bush.
