About Me

I was born in Brooklyn, Trump was born in Queens. The only thing that makes people think I'm an H-1b stealing jobs from Americans is that my Grandparents immigrated from India, while Drumpf's immigrated from Germany. It's race, not citizenship. Americans are more diverse than you think. Millions of US citizens don't look the way you might expect. This fact is very important and will help us win elections.

Republicans in Texas apologize for campaign ad likening a Hindu deity to the GOP elephant

https://www.cnn.com/2018/09/20/politics/texas-republicans-hindu-theme-campaign-ad-trnd/index.html



The India Herald, a Texas news outlet, published this ad by the Fort Bend County Republicans.

(CNN)To attract Indian-American voters, a Republican party group in suburban Houston released a campaign ad with an image of Ganesha, the elephant-headed Hindu deity.

Published in the India Herald newspaper and sponsored by the Fort Bend County Republican Party, the ad played on the animal symbols for the Democratic and Republican parties. It read: "Would you worship a donkey or an elephant? The choice is yours."

The ad was published on September 12, a day before the start of Ganesh Chaturthi, a 10-day Hindu festival which celebrates the birth of Ganesha.

Now, after a backlash from Hindu-Americans who said the ad was inappropriate, the Fort Bend Republicans have issued an apology, saying they never intended to offend anyone.


GOP is so racist and dumb that Dems might be able to make Texas blue again. Watch for them to try and suppress the votes of US citizens by claiming that "if you look like an H-1b then you can't be allowed to vote" or similar nonsense.
