Bobby Jindal Happy To Call Brown People Names If He Can Be President
Bobby Jindal's offical portrait. Yes, really.
Louisiana Gov. Piyush "Bobby like the Brady Bunch" Jindal is the spittin' image of racial transcendence. He doesn't see race,even when he looks in the mirror, because he is a proud American, from America, raised by American immigrants who came to America, so that's THAT. He isnotIndian-American because he doesn't believe in that sort of radical leftist divisive nonsense, and he's "done with all this talk about hyphen-Americans." And he's so proud of his born-and-raised-right-here-in-America heritage that he's willing to invoke laws that do not even exist to ensure that his state forever worships the Confederate traitors who declared war on the the United States and tried to leave it. Ah, patriotism.
But the governor's willing to make an exception, because this week's topic of conversation among Republican presidential candidates is "Do You Hate Browns And How Much?" Donald Trump says he will delete them and their "unconstitutional" rights from the Constitution. Dr. Ben Carson says he'll just drone-strike them to death.
So give it your all, "Bobby," and show the nice white folks at home how far you're willing to go:
Republican presidential candidate and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) told Fox News on Thursday that he's "happy to use" the term "anchor babies" to describe children who were born to noncitizen mothers and granted citizenship by birthright. [...]
“Folks today are too easily offended. they’re too politically correct," Jindal said. "The real issue here — yeah I’m happy to use the term — but the reality is the real issue here is we need to secure our border."
Now, technically, "anchor babies" -- the disgusting preferred nomenclature among conservatives for first-generation Americans with brown skin, like Bobby Jindal -- might not be a hyphenated term. The AP Stylebook is utterly unhelpful on this, having declared in 2013 that it won't even use the word "illegals" to describe those icky browns in America:
The Stylebook no longer sanctions the term “illegal immigrant” or the use of “illegal” to describe a person. Instead, it tells users that “illegal” should describe only an action, such as living in or immigrating to a country illegally. [...]
People who were brought into the country as children should not be described as having immigrated illegally. For people granted a temporary right to remain in the U.S. under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, use temporary resident status, with details on the program lower in the story.
Bunch of liberal propaganda PC police argle bargle, obviously. And thankfully, when Bobby Jindal is president, he will usher us into arealpost-racial era, where no one ever has to worry about being offended by stupid "racism," because that's all far behind us now anyway, and Bobby "No hyphens, please" Jindal is only too happy to prove it.
