There is something weird about Harry Reid and the issue of race. He seems to bring it up at the most inopportune times, like when he said that senators who opposed Obamacare were like the supporters of slavery.

On Tuesday, Senator Harry Reid, once again pulled the racial/ethnic card out of his pocket and once again it turned out to be a joker.

Making a campaign appearance in front of a supportive crowd of Hispanics, the Senate majority leader let loose with his latest Gem:

“I don’t know how anyone of Hispanic heritage could be a Republican,” said Reid. “Do I need to say more?” see video below

I am not sure which is worse, the Majority Leader of the United States Senate, one of the senior leaders of the country trying to be racially decisive, or the Majority Leader of the United States Senate being so racially ignorant that he believes the Hispanic community to be monolithic with all the same policy liberal policy opinions as the Progressive Democrats who run the country today.

Every time Reid mentions Race he manages to stick his large foot in his mouth, whether it he is saying that  Barack Obama should run for President because he was “light-skinned” and spoke with “no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one.  Or like this interview below where he is asked about then Candidate Obama’s connection to people implicated in the FannyMae/FreedieMac Crisis and  Reid answers that anyone who would make that association are doing so because of racism.

Some men are born stupid, others have to learn it.  When it comes to Race and politics Harry Reid must have been born with his stupidity, its just too deeply rooted to have been an acquired knowledge.

Sadly Reid remains one of the most powerful people in this country, and he is doing all that he can to divide rather than unite the citizens of the US.
