Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

[W]ith a statement that was widely seen as xenophobic and offensive, [Argentine President Alberto] FernÃndez managed to cause offense at home and across Latin America -- including in the region's most powerful nations. "Mexicans emerged from Indigenous people, Brazilians emerged from the jungle but we Argentines arrived on boats. On boats from Europe," FernÃndez said on Wednesday, during a televised appearance next to Spain's prime minister, Pedro SÃnchez, who was visiting Buenos Aires.

"Brazilians emerged from the jungle"?

Yeah well the boats Fernndez people arrived on came from Germany.

"but we Argentines arrived on boats. On boats from Europe"

I'm surprised he didn't narrow it down even further: Boats that set sail from Germany, towards the end of WWII.

Interestingly, the third generation Brazilians that I know have ancestors in Portugal.

It's a choice between civilization and barbarism.

Just goes to show that racism isn't just a problem here in America. I'm wondering, did the Brazillians emerge from the jungle speaking Portuguese? He is a racist piece of filth. The American embassy should condemn him immediately. As a nation of all races, we should not accept racism on any level.

The American embassy should condemn him immediately.

Why? Frankly, it's not our business. And we are not the racism police of the world.

Was what he saying the truth? Can the truth be racist?

I'm not in the least worried about you, Boaz.
The guy quoted is full of it.
But you take his word for it.
Talk about gullible.
