A Latino Democrat in Texas is under fire after he was recorded in the midst of a tirade against local black prosecutors.
Brownsville City Commissioner Cesar De Leon can be heard on tape calling a pair of prosecutors “fu**ing N***ers.”
This is what De Leon was heard saying:
There are a couple of [F-word and N-word] that Luis Saenz is getting, and I don’t know where he is getting them from. They are coming down to my [F-word] city and now they are trying to [F-word] put everybody in jail because they think we are a bunch of Mexicans that hit our wives, which couldn’t be further from the [F-word] truth, but that is how they see us.
They are [F-word] … and I would say this, that I would never dare use that word, but you know what, yes, there are a couple of [N-word] in there that think that all of us are [F-word] taco eaters.
Warning – Foul Language ahead:
The Democrat has since tried to apologize, but in his apology he also excuses his behavior by saying that it was a “private conversation.” As if that should matter. Private conversations are where truths are most often revealed. And De Leon’s truth is that he’s obviously got some major race-based issues.
Here’s what he told the Brownsville Herald about his ugly tirade.
“I want to begin by apologizing. I want to apologize to the citizens of Brownsville or whoever had to listen to those tapes because there is a lot of profane language and that was a private conversation. It was never meant to be public, but it’s very important that people understand that I’m very apologetic.”
That’s not really an apology. He doesn’t admit wrongdoing. He simply argues that he’s sorry for offending people and that the conversation was never meant to be heard by others. Instead, his apology should have included something about being wrong for saying what he said.
It’s clear that De Leon doesn’t think he was wrong, he’s only sorry that he got caught and that it could affect his political career.
Earlier this week De Leon’s boss, District Attorney Luis Saenz, apologized for De Leon’s comments and for his own bad judgment in giving him a job.
“The people of Cameron County expect me to hire the most competent prosecutors that I can find, without regard to their race, and that is what I strive to do. Mr. De Leon’s remarks are very shameful and hurtful. It is extremely disappointing that they are made by a lawyer and a representative of the City of Brownsville.”
If you feel like you’ve heard this story before, it’s because Democrats seem to get caught using racist language pretty often. Just a few months a Mayoral candidate in New Jersey was recorded saying she didn’t want her town to turn into a “fu**ing N***er Town.”
The hypocrisy runs deep in a party that is constantly attempting to divide us by race, creed, color, and anything else they can divide us on. Racism is ugly and these Democrats should be held accountable for what they say.
