An RNC delegate from Pennsylvania apparently doesn't think a "Mexican" should be working at the American pavilion at Disney World's EPCOT Center.
From Think Progress:
During a trip to Epcot at Disneyworld, Pennsylvania delegate Mark Harris and his wife were shocked and offended to find a Mexican employee working at the amusement park’s American pavilion, which showcases the different cultures in the United States. According to the couple’s blog, Harris complained to staff that he was “highly offended” that a “person from Mexico” was working in the American pavilion when other nations’ pavilions were staffed by people from each respective country:His wife wrote on their blog that they enjoyed going around to all the various pavilions dedicated to individual countries, but were dismayed to find a Mexican working at the American pavilion (perhaps someone ought to explain to the dear delegate and his wife that Mexico is part of America!). His wife insists that her husband confronted the man with his disappointment in a very "civil" way, but that "his point was made." Ah, gotta' love those civil bigots!
Others were not so impressed:
The local GOP in Snyder County, Pennsylvania has rushed to disavow Harris’ overtly racist comments. County Commissioner Malcolm Derk told The Daily Item, “Americans are people of any race, color or heritage. Cheers to the individual working at Epcot for showing what a true American looks like.”Wow, how many racist Republican idiots is it going to take for the media to finally get that this is not just a series of isolated incidents but a condition endemic to the party as a whole? Oh, right, I forgot, Condaleeza Rice.
