I Love This Quote

"Are we supposed to change the name of a burrito to something in English?" Cary said. "I'm thinking there's some narrow-mindedness here, but that's just my opinion."

It appears that the racist head is raised again. Reminds me of when certain members of the elitist Republican right wing nutjobs decided to change the name of french fries to "freedom" fries.

What is wrong with these people?

Some Republicans are unhappy with the Bonner County Fair's theme of "Fiesta at the Fair," in light of ongoing battles to stop illegal immigration from Mexico.

The Bonner County GOP said it will decorate its booth with the word "celebrate" instead of "fiesta." The Republicans have also asked Arizona officials for some license plates to put in the booth, to show support for that state's controversial law targeting illegal immigrants.


Bonner County fair board Chairman Tim Cary said the fair was just looking for a theme that's fun to decorate with, and the choice had nothing to do with official language or immigration disputes.

Cary noted that one of the fair's regular offerings is the Mexican food sold at the Search and Rescue booth.
