Russell Pearce wants to “target” immigrant women

Racism and misogyny – they go together like peas and carrots.

“If we are going to have an effect on the anchor baby racket, we need to target the mother. Call it sexist, but that’s the way nature made it. Men don’t drop anchor babies, illegal alien mothers do.”

I’ve long been frustrated and disheartened by how, in the face of his conspicuously virulent racism, Russell Pearce’s equally virulent misogyny is downplayed. Pearce has dissed women his entire legislative career and there is a documented allegation of domestic violence in his past. But since Pearce’s comment was about immigrant women, who occupy an even lower place in American society than women in general, I expect there will be little outcry. I should think that the racist eliminationist rhetoric accompanying Pearce’s misogyny would be a bridge too far for for most people, especially in light of his personal history, but I won’t hold my breath on that.

    I wonder when we will be confronted with Pearce’ Anchor Love Child?

    The person who reveals the existence of the love child will be accused of unfairly smearing Russell Pearce. IOKIYAR.

    In the article you cite he complains about people being mean to him because “he stands for America.”

    No Russell, we are mean to you because you are being a jerk.
