i bet he doesn’t like lutefisk, either

ashwin madia is an indian-american veteran of the iraq war running as a democrat for the house of representatives in minnesota’s 3rd district, where i grew up. i find it shocking that the republicans are using racially-loaded language in their campaign. madia has said he didn’t see any coded racism. reading the transcript, i am not convinced. it sounds like this is a tight race, so it is no surprise that it would come to these sorts of tactics. (video via angry asian man.)


Everything is racially, ethnically or sexually loaded these days. Lipstick. Indian. That one. Today I heard welfare was a racial word. Maybe even tactics and loaded. Who knows, but this sort of sniping is silly.
