(WASHINGTON DC DCCC Press) - Congressman Greg Walden’s Congressional leader, Don Young, used the racial slur “wetbacks” in an interview last night. Will Congressman Walden condemn his friend’s horribly offensive remark?

Congressman Don Young is the second most senior Republican Member of Congress. In an interview this week, Congressman Don Young (R-AK) talked about hiring 50 to 60 “wetbacks” on his family’s ranch.

“Congressman Walden can’t remain silent on his colleague Don Young’s use of a racial slur to describe Latino families,” said Emily Bittner of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. “Hispanic Americans and all of the hardworking people of Oregon deserve to know if Congressman Walden will stand by and let his pal denigrate our neighbors, or if he will do the right thing – and condemn the use of racial slurs by his political party leader. Congressman Don Young is the second-most senior Republican in Congress, and Congressman Walden should stand up for Latino families in Oregon.”

The word "Gringo" is not a term of endearment. How many Hispanics of all stripes use this insulting word? I could go on with other words, but then, it would expose the hypocrisy and the left thinks all whites are rubes. Just look at the national polls that say around 70% want the borders secured and E-verify to be a law, not just a volunteer process. So if you speak Spanish, go to some Hispanic watering hole and listen to them talk about the "gringo's." Go to the FBI website and check out the Hispanic on white crime rates. I use the term "wetback" when someone calls me a gringo...hope you all start dialing up your violence real soon...then you will be pig food.

I'll bet you hear that and a lot worse, but it is a reflection of who you are. Many people use 'Gringo' without meaning it as an insult, gringo
