John McCain commemorates Memorial Day by Hispandering

For Memorial Day, the John McCain campaign has released the following video to Youtube and on his site [1]. Rather than commemorating all veterans, McCain has focused on one group: Hispanics. From the script:
My friends, I want you, the next time you're down in Washington, D.C., to go to the Vietnam War Memorial and look at the names engraved in black granite. You'll find a whole lot of Hispanic names.
Obviously, you'll find a whole lot of names of different backgrounds, but I guess they aren't special.
When you go to Iraq or Afghanistan today, you're going to see a whole lot of people who are of Hispanic background.

You're even going to meet some of the few thousand that are still green card holders who are not even citizens of this country, who love this country so much that they're willing to risk their lives in its service in order to accelerate their path to citizenship and enjoy the bountiful, blessed nation.

So let's, from time to time, remember that these are God's children. They must come into country legally, but they have enriched our culture and our nation as every generation of immigrants before them...
McCain is smearing those who oppose his un-American schemes; I think we already knew they were "God's children". That doesn't mean that granting a huge amnesty is good public policy. And, it ignores the negative impact of massive immigration from mainly one country. In cases like this, McCain sounds like the worst sleazy, ethnocentric, race-baiting, multiculturalist Democrat.

Even the wretch Osama Bin Ladin is one of God's children, but that wouldn't stop us from meting out man's justice should we catch him. It seems that McCain is using "God's children" to justify undermining man's laws. This man is shameless.

An insult to every race speach on Memorial Day. I'll still be saving money and stay home in Nov.

I would rather have Hilary Clinton than this asshole. Do not forget that it was Bill Clinton that signed IIRIRA and Ronald Regan that signed the 1987 amnesties.

Had McCain bothered to check, he would have found that close to 75% of American deaths in the Iraq conflict are whites; a figure substantially greater than the percentage of whites of military age.

_Had McCain bothered to check, he would have found that close to 75% of American deaths in the Iraq conflict are whites; a figure substantially greater than the percentage of whites of military age._ Good point. In general studies show that Whites are disproportionately represented among combat troops and among casualties. The facts often conflict with political correctness.

"McCain sounds like the worst sleazy, ethnocentric, race-baiting, multiculturalist Democrat" Whatddyamean "sounds like"? He is the worst sleazy, ethnocentric, race-baiting, multiculturalist Democrat, forget the lil "R" label next to his name, he's a Democrat by his own voting record, there's nothing Republican or Constitutional about him.

As a former service member not of his chosen "Hispanic Race" this is offensive to the extreme. Teddy Roosevelt I believe once remarked that there is only one race in this country - and that is American. All service members who have sacrificed deserve the same equal respect regardless of race or class. This is something that John McCain cannot seem to understand.

mary, McCain is a traitor to all his ideals and he is evil as hell. Obama is not A Traitor you can't be a traitor to ideals you never had, in other words Obama is not in anyway a American he is owned by other ideals and other people who hate our freedom and when a nation is owned by others its time to move on that government of owners, if you know what i mean?
