Douchebro Duncan Hunter Race-Baiting His Way Back Into Congress En Route To JAIL

Post-Racial America

Time to take out the trash, California! You are far too cool to keep sending that cow-loving fake farmer from Fresno, Putin's little buddy in Orange County (whose funding got yanked last week by CLF, lol), and that smarmy Bakersfield Tea Party bastard to Washington. And don't even get us started on Duncan Hunter!

The guy is under indictment for stealing $250,000 from his own campaign. He spent donated funds to take his girlfriends on vacation and used the campaign credit card to buy clothes, which he later claimed were "[golf] balls for the wounded warriors," allegedly. He got drunk with his pals in the Bro Caucus, sometimes over lunch, and ran up a $138,666 bar tab, paid for by the campaign. And besides that, he's a bigoted asshole!

Look at this race-baiting POS ad where he pretends his opponent, Ammar Campa-Najjar, is some kind of ISIS sleeper agent.

Just to be clear, Duncan Hunter, who inherited his congressional seat from his father and proceeded to LOOT IT, is now blaming Campa-Najjar for the sins of his Palestinian grandfather who died 16 years before he was born and for the beliefs of his father, who left the family when Campa-Najjar was 8 years old.

It takes some balls for a useless bastard who coasted on his own father's name to fault his opponent for taking the name of the single mother who raised him alone. NPR reports,

"He changed his name from Ammar Yasser Najjar to Ammar Campa-Najjar," said Hunter, "so he sounds Hispanic. ... That is how hard, by the way, that the radical Muslims are trying to infiltrate the U.S. government."

Not for nothing, but Campa-Najjar is Hispanic! And it wouldn't matter if he were Muslim, BUT HE'S NOT. Because unlike some people whose fathers were in Congress, Campa-Najjar couldn't get a cushy job as a teenager. So when he was 15, he got a job as a janitor scrubbing toilets at a Protestant church.


The LATimes reports,

At work he struck up a friendship with Kevin McPeak, one of the pastors at the nondenominational Protestant church.

During services, the church sometimes played U2 and other secular music. Campa-Najjar and McPeak eventually starting talking about bands they liked and discovered they were both fans of Sting. Soon Campa-Najjar picked up a guitar and performed during services.

"I started playing, and it really spoke to me," said Campa-Najjar, whose mother is Catholic and father is Muslim. He began to worship at EastLake and eventually joined its youth ministry. The more he read the Bible, the more redeeming he found it.

"I was not looking for religion, but it found me," he said.

Or as Duncan Hunter's campaign puts it, "No one interested in America's national security should take the chance of voting for Ammar Campa-Najjar aka Ammar Yassar Najjar."

Funny story! Duncan Hunter, whose campaign sent out this racist mailer, couldn't get a security clearance because he's under federal indictment. And also because he's in debt up to his eyeballs. Unlike Campa-Najjar, who was able to pass a background check when he worked in the Obama White House and at the Department of Labor because he's a lovely person who would make a terrific congressman.

Yeah sure, dude, he's LYING about being Hispanic.

And yet, Hunter still leads in the polls! Jesus, California, FIX YOUR SHIT!

There was a time, a few months ago, when everyone had written off Elizabeth Warren. Well, not me, because I am a fabulous genius, but lots of other people. The "very reasonable" talking heads on all the various news channels, the kind of people who used to say things like "Oh, we'd like universal health care too, but 'the people' will never go for it!" but who definitely did not actually want universal health care for any reason, and even the Trump campaign. Though, to be fair, the Trump campaign didn't think Trump had much of a chance of winning in 2016 either.

But now, as more and more people hear her speak, hear her plans, hear what she wants to do and how she wants to do it... Elizabeth Warren is rising up in the polls. She's a contender. In the most recent Quinnipiac poll, she was closing in on Sanders for second place nationally, and in California and Nevada polls, she's in second place.

And now, according to a report from Politico, the Trump campaign is now scrambling and panicking and... stalking her?
