Raul Grijalva Throws the Race Card – Actually He Has His Wife Do It

Tucson City Councilman Rirdard Fimbres’ blog site, has surprisingly posted an op-ed piece from Raul’s wife Mona Grijalva where she plays the race card against up-and-coming-on-strong Ruth McClung.  From the City Councilman’s website:

With only 23 days left to go before election day, there is a true sense of urgency and NOW is the time to really get busy!! The right wing sees Raul as vulnerable and is working really hard to win the race in CD7….and they have ALOT of money. They already have horrible, biggoted anti-Raul commercials on TV! They have already mailed anti-Raul flyers to thousands of homes in CD7! They had folks waving anti-Raul signs at moving traffic while screaming racist epithets in several areas of town last week!! As the attached article from Politico.com states, we are in a really, really tough race this year!!

Actually Ruth is kicking butt all over Raul, as her campaign has gone viral in the last 48 hours drawing attention from blog heavyweights Michelle Malkin, Hugh Hewitt, Gateway Pundit, Moonbattery and many more.  That endorsement from Sarah Palin helped things along with recent polling putting her up by 2 points over the one-who-would-boycott-his-own-state.

So it should come as no surprise that the now-desperate Raul has his wife throw the very predictable race card.  No proof, no pictures, no YouTube videos, nothing……nada,  just lies and innuendo.  Typical….

What is somewhat of a surprise is that a sitting city councilman would post the race-baiting piece on his personal blog.  Then again, Richard isn’t up for re-election this year.

    LOL, how predictable indeed. Reap what you sow, you socialist nutball

  2. Don’t you mean the “ethnic card” as Hispanicity is an ethnicity and not a “race” as it has nothing to do with genetics. Of course it was Monica G who used the term “racist”. I wonder what “race” she claims people were putting down. Of course there is bigotry against people of Mexican descent just as there was (and to a lessor degree still is) bigotry against Italian and Irish and that needs to be condemned in no uncertain terms.

    Most people are not going to vote against Raúl Grijalva because of his ancestry but rather because of his politics, party affiliation, and call for a boycott of Arizona.

  3. Didn’t know that DEMOCRAT was a ‘race’.
