Corrupt GOP Rep. Young: ‘I meant no disrespect’ with the slur ‘wetbacks’!/ChadPergram/status/317493540827582464

Alaska Rep. Don Young is another corrupt, congressional bitter-clinger who needs to be sent back to Alaska. (No disrespect, natch.) The GOP congressman has held his office since 1973 and is under investigation yet again for ethical violations.

Don Young is a dirtbag. This is not a recent discovery to conservatives. Alaska should have sent him packing years ago.

Evidently Young didn’t think grassroots conservatives had enough reason to pry his sticky fingers from his cushy seat in Congress, so he decided to toss out the racial slur “wetbacks” in a radio interview.

If you missed it, Don Young (R-AK) decided to use the term “wetbacks” to refer to farm workers…

“My father had a ranch; we used to have 50-60 wetbacks to pick tomatoes.” — Rep. Don Young (R-Alaska). [This is a sitting US congressman.]

But, you know, he “meant no disrespect” with his unacceptable slur, so we’re all supposed to move on and forget this (and all his other idiocy) never happened.

I used a term that was commonly used during my days growing up on a farm in central California.  I know that this term is not used in the same way nowadays and I meant no disrespect.


I was just thinking the other day that what the Republican party needs is a politician to call ppl Wetbacks. Thanks @repdonyoung #headdesk

“Well, things have been actually going pretty well. Messaging has improved. Yep. Now about those wetbacks.”

In 2008, Sarah Palin backed a primary challenge to Don Young. She was right.

Americans hear “legitimate rape” and they run to Democrats. They hear “wetbacks” and they run to Democrats. You want to fix the debt? Win.

Dear GOP congressmen: the only response to a rape question is “it’s evil” and also, don’t refer to migrant workers as “wetbacks”. FFS.
