Another Republican Elected Official Smears Hispanics

The GOP continues its pattern of minority-bashing, as Iowa Congressman and political melon-head Steven King called Hispanic children drug mules, and worse

"For every one who’s a valedictorian, there’s another 100 out there that — they weigh 130 pounds and they’ve got calves the size of cantaloupes because they’re hauling 75 pounds of marijuana across the desert,” the honorable gentleman said.
The GOP congressional caucus has a special contempt for Hispanic voters. Just a few days ago, House Republicans made sure they sent Hispanics this unmistakable and historic message:
After blocking for months the nomination of Thomas Perez to serve as President Obama's Secretary of Labor - -making Perez the sole Hispanic in the current Cabinet - - the GOP agrees to let the appointment be approved, but only after a more historic slap, reports the LA Times:
Perez was confirmed 54 to 46, to become possibly the first Cabinet secretary to win no votes from the opposition party, according to the Senate Historical Office.

I bet he gets a metric shit-ton of melon-ballers and/or cantaloupes sent to his office.
