Just when you think you’ve reached the bottom of GOP racism, you realize there is no bottom

Josh Marshall:

Gabriela Saucedo Mercer, a candidate for Congress in Arizona, is an immigrant from Mexico herself but when it comes to “Middle Easterners”, Chinese and apparently various brown-skinned people who don’t come from Mexico, she doesn’t want them here “legally or illegally” because they mix in and look like Mexicans.

See, it works this way; middle easterners all look like Mexicans and this is a bad thing because with every middle easterner “their only goal in life is to, to cause harm to the United States.” And, since they all look like Mexicans, how are we supposed to know who’s the terrorist and who isn’t? Better just to not let any middle easterners in, because 9/11.

The least surprising part of the whole story: “She has been endorsed by Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R), who is scheduled to attend a fundraiser for Saucedo Mercer on Sept. 12 in Tucson, Ariz.”
