A far-reaching collection of Maryland's Asian, Latino, black and women's rights leaders denounced Comptroller William Donald Schaefer yesterday for what they called a series of intolerant public statements -- and they told the former governor that it is "time to go."Wow, sounds serious. Except, the provided remarks don't exactly rise to any sort of questionable level that I can see. Rather, it appears to be a power play by far-leftie, Gramscian racial power groups. And, if that wasn't clear, there's this near the end:
Leaders of the National Capital Immigrant Coalition have their eyes on more than 277,000 black, Latino and Asian residents who are eligible to vote but have not yet registered.That last link provides another quote from this fine quote source:
"We have the power, we have the capacity, to remove the policymakers who hate us," said Gustavo Torres, executive director of CASA of Maryland. "And let me tell you, we are going to do this."
"We are going to target [the MMP members] in a specific way... [by taking their own pictures]... Then we are going to picket their houses, and the schools of their kids, and go to their work... If they are going to do this to us, we are going to respond in the same way, to let people know their neighbors are extremists, that they are anti-immigrant. They are going to hear from us."Shouldn't the WaPo remove someone who says things like that from their Rolodexes?
