Pete Hoekstra, a bigoted idiot!

During the television broadcast of this years SuperBowl, former Congressman Pete Hoekstra had the gall to put out a ridiculous commercial attacking his opponent in the 2012 U. S. Senate race, Debbie Stabenow. It has since been removed from Hoekstra’s YouTube account.

Fortunately, another person made a copy of that video with an explanation for how stupid it really was:

Feel free to comment there.

Indeed, Republicans have actually been the biggest “spend it now” lunatics since Reagan was President. We had a chance to start paying off the U. S. public debt under Clinton, but Bush Jr ruined it with his absurd tax cuts for the rich! Pete Hoekstra is a LIAR!

Oh, and when he was a Congressman, and even Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, he committed some blunders which should have got him removed from that Committee, if not expelled from Congress outright!

Don’t allow this bastard to come anywhere near the U. S. Senate! We already had a disgusting racist, Jesse Helms, in the Senate for decades. We don’t need another!

One thought on “Pete Hoekstra, a bigoted idiot!

  1. Even the Asian-American actress who starred in that commercial has disowned it!

    An Asian-American actress who starred in the controversial ad produced by Michigan Republican Pete Hoekstra’s U.S. Senate campaign has apologized for her participation.

    “I am deeply sorry for any pain that the character I portrayed brought to my communities,” Lisa Chan, the actress, wrote in a statement on her Facebook page. “As a recent college grad who has spent time working to improve communities and empower those without a voice, this role is not in any way representative of who I am. It was absolutely a mistake on my part and one that, over time, I hope can be forgiven. I feel horrible about my participation and I am determined to resolve my actions.”

    In the ad, which ran in Michigan during the Super Bowl, Chan portrays a young Asian woman riding a bike through a field of rice paddies and speaking broken English while thanking Hoekstra’s opponent, Democratic incumbent Debbie Stabenow, for her “reckless spending.”

    “Thank you, Michigan Senator Debbie Spenditnow,” the woman says. “Debbie spends so much American money. You borrow more and more from us. Your economy get very weak. Ours get very good. We take your jobs. Thank you, Debbie Spenditnow.”

    The spot sparked outrage in the Asian American community. “It is very disturbing that Mr. Hoekstra’s campaign chose to use harmful negative stereotypes that intrinsically encourage anti-Asian sentiment,” the Asian & Pacific Islander American Vote group said in a statement.

    In 2010, Chan, who studied sociology at the University of California Berkeley, launched The Strive, a 501 c(3) charity organization “geared towards empowering at-risk youth through inspiration and improved public education.”

    According to the San Francisco Chronicle, which profiled her in 2007, Chan won Miss San Francisco’s Outstanding Teen pageant that year with a platform of “empowering the youth toward an educational revolution” while maintaining a 4.2 grade-point average.

    Miss Chan, your apology is NOT accepted. I’d be more impressed if you had said, “I was amazed at what I was being asked to do, but I went along with it because I knew it would backfire against Hoekstra later!” Indeed, Hoekstra’s popularity in the state of Michigan plummeted after the commercial aired. So when will HE apologize? Better still, send him to a mental hospital, for he must be insane!
