Sept. 12, 2016 By Jack Jodell (in association with BURR DEMING, creator of and chief author over at FAIR AND UNBALANCED.COM – see my Blogroll in the lower right hand column).
Happy start of a new week, everybody! In this election year, we have seen a seemingly endless parade of Donald Trump surrogates making ridiculously
nonsensical statements as well as outright lies. From Healy Baumgardner to Katrina Pierson to the latest, “Latinos for Trump” founder Marco Gutierrez, these self-proclaimed spokespersons end up putting their feet in their mouths as often as Trump does and making their candidate appear to be a lightweight. Gutierrez, with his insane warning of how we had better elect Trump or we will soon find a Taco truck on every corner, reinforces Trump’s ethnocentricity and bigotry in a way that should make even a KKK member blush.
In today’s podcast, our master podcaster Burr Deming carves up and shreds this prejudice, giving us some interesting and seldom-discussed history on immigration in the process. He even relates an incident from his youth which he still carries with him.
Burr tells us, “Humans often make a point of not letting facts interfere with opinions…
We laugh at the absurd warning. Our society will be overtaken by a Taco culture.
But there is a deadly serious side, in our politics and in our history.”
