"Maybe his solution will be to get out his small varmint gun and drive those Guatemalans off his lawn."
Once again, the good Guatemalan people are strewn through the mud for pathetic, political gain. These words were uttered by US Presidential candidate John McCain.
Small varmint gun...
Are the good people of Guatemala small varmints to Mr. McCain? Is that how he views Latino people as a whole? Nothing but the small varmints who make your lawn look green in the middle of the summer? Are we to be shooshed away by a "small varmint gun"?
I am not a small varmint Mr. McCain. Guatemalans are not small varmints Mr. McCain. The good Latino people are not small varmints Mr. McCain. We are hard working people trying to get our piece of the American dream. We are not "varmints". We may be blue-collared, but we are people.
Is there a large Guatemalan-American swing vote? Not yet, but we're growing. I do know that the Latino population may not take lightly to your referring to one of their own as a small varmint. This is not the way to garner votes. Or as in your case, respect for the blue collar worker; of which, it is apparent, you have none.
It's easy to pick on the little guy. It's just a shame that a man who wishes to lead this country has to do so.
