McCain Hispanic Community Liaison Removed For Racial Comments
Didi Lima, the GOP communications director for Clark County, Nevada, and Hispanic community liaison for the McCain campaign, lost her job Saturday after saying the Democratic Party made blacks “dependent on the government.” And that’s not all she said.
“We don’t want (Hispanics) to become the new African-American community,” Lima said. “And that’s what the Democratic Party is going to do to them: create more programs and give them handouts, food stamps and checks for this and checks for that. We don’t want that.”
“I’m very much afraid that the Democratic Party is going to do the same thing that they did with the African-American culture and make them all dependent on the government and we don’t want that,” she said.
This follows the resignation of Fernando C de Baca, a New Mexico Republican county chairman, who was forced out of his position after saying that Hispanics wouldn’t vote for Obama because they “consider themselves above blacks.”Click here for reuse options!
