Skip to comments.Bob Menendez plays race card, blames conservatives for scandals
Posted on 02/25/2013 9:19:25 AM PST by chessplayer
At a Black History Month event held at a Trenton, N.J. church on Sunday, Democratic Senator Bob Menendez blamed conservatives for his ethics scandals, framing them as a racial attack on him because of his Hispanic heritage. I have felt the sting of discrimination, he told approximately 300 worshipers, according to the Bergen Record. It has never been easy.
Now we face anonymous, faceless, nameless individuals from right-wing sources seeking to destroy a lifetime of work, Menendez said at Shiloh Baptist Church.

Oh, I get it. It’s Bush’s fault.
I didn’t know Hispanic was a race. Ummmm.....learn something everyday.
If they're destroying YOUR "lifetime's work" then more power to them!
This thing is now entering its terminal phases -- the "I'm the victim here!" phase. He's not long for this political world.
He’s still pushing the “nameless, faceless” narrative I see. Makes it easier to lie when you deliberately prevent people from seeing the actual accusations.
yep, I can see this. It’s all the CONSERVATIVE movement, behind this. No one despises him because of his LIFE STYLE, it’s only his skin color. GOOD job, playing the RACE CARD, but it doesn’t work that way any more because so much of America is MIXED race.
Hispanic heritage you say? Let’s see your green card. The party of illegal immigration brought unwanted scrutiny on themselves by erasing the southern border. Now anyone who remotely looks hispanic will be under the spotlight. And all of the US citzens of hispanic heritage can thank the democrats, the mexican government, LaRaza, drug cartels, employers of illegals, and illegals themselves for painting a target on them. Sorry, but the gringos have had enough, and the legal hispanics will just become collateral damage.
Yeah. It's all the republicans fault he couldn't keep his penis in his pants and away from little girls. It's just a "vast right wing conspiracy out to destory....... the Hispanic guy."(when all else fails, use the race card).
“Sting of discrimination” my eye. That was just the hooker smacking his fat ass.
if patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel
then “racism” is the FIRST refuge of every liberal scoundrel.
That should appeal to low-information voters.
Who were the brain trusts at Shiloh Baptist Church that gave this pedophile a platform to spew this trash?
I have to assume this is a loonie left “church” rather than a real house of worship.
a liberal device further conveniently subdivided so that a “white Hispanic” like Zimmerman doesn’t get a pass
I was waiting for all the evidence to come in (as I always do) before I made any decision about his guilt or innocence in this matter. However, now that he’s played the race card I’m sure he’s guilty.
are there any free thinkers there who realize how wrong it was, I wonder.
I suspect that with you, Bob, the girls were doing most of the work. Although I don't doubt you were working with your hands.
And pleading your case in a church on Sunday is the last refuge of a liberal scoundrel.
Bobby Menendez is saying “Johnnie made me do it”.. -OR- If Johnny can do it why can’t I...
Liberals are stuck with juvenile logic.. always..
because they are juveniles.. they never grew up..
I want the following questions presented each and every time the racebating/race card BS starts...no matter who starts it.
“Excuse me but why was MLK Jr. wrong? Why don’t you believe content of character matters more than the color of one’s skin? And I want a straight answer now.”
Every place. Every time. By all of us.
They can either answer or all their ‘friends’ are going to question their ‘patriotism’.
And not a single Republican knew about this guy?
I should think, for example that if the pubs wanted to get that seat they would have hired an investigator get info use it against them in a campaign or something.
B it the pubs knew nothing.
What took him so long?
Their own gay/pedo secrets would be used against them. You KNOW there’s something like that the Dems have on some of them. Hill’s FBI files have long memories...
Oh brother. Bad analogy. The only grape this idiot has ever seen has been out of a bottle.
Yep. Absolute power corrupts absolutely - on both sides. People who have unlimited power, unlimited luxury, and people bowing to them on command, have a tendency to find the normal, peasant like life a bit boring.
Zackly. He's a WHITE GUY!
Well, their website explains a whole lot. I see they orbit around their strong presence at their lord and savior zero’s inauguration.
Shiloh Baptist Church must use the Holy Melanin Glue to keep their reparation between Church and State.
Hey, Bob! Look in the mirror. You are white.
You are so bingo on that. This is one example of the problem we have with this entrenched political class.
As a group they have secrets they must hide.
Nope. And 18 is legal in te Dominican Republic; it's 17 in New Jersey.
Democrat resume enhancer.
The only better enhancement would be if he were paying transgender,disabled, midgets of color who are single mothers just getting their lives turned around.
