Frontline of the Class War: "Rice and Beans", "Privilege You Earn", and Tax Returns

The Republicans are right, there is a class war going on in this country. And they're the ones waging it against the middle and working class:
  • Meanwhile, Jesse Kelly, the Republican running for Gabby Giffords old seat, thinks that access to healthcare (not health insurance, healthcare) is "a privilege you earn."
Welcome to the working week!

    Simply put, Jesse Kelly has neither the brains, credibility or honesty for public office, the will for fighting or the compassion to represent the people of southern Arizona either CD8 OR CD2.

  2. Jesse Kelly Supported by Groups Tied to White Supremacists, Neo-Nazis



    McCain campaign criticized ALIPAC for being among “extreme groups that condone racism”

    Apparently no longer satisfied to simply spew out-of-touch rhetoric about eliminating Social Security and imposing a 23 percent tax on southern Arizonans, now Jesse Kelly has doggedly pursued the support of a group with known white supremacist, anti-Semitic and neo-Nazi ties. Kelly accepted the endorsement of Americans for Legal Immigration or ALIPAC – the same group that Senator John McCain’s spokesman condemned earlier this year as “backed by white supremacists, neo-Nazis and anti-Semites.” McCain’s office went further, characterizing ALIPAC as an “extreme groups that condone[s] racism.”

    The neo-Nazi backers of ALIPAC include Stormfront, Vinlanders Social Club, European Americans United and David Duke, according to the Anti-Defamation League.

    ALIPAC has also come under heavy criticism for “bigotry” and “extreme rhetoric” and an agenda that “goes beyond the enforcement of immigration laws,” all the way to “demoniz[ing] immigrants as drunk drivers, gang members, invaders, murderers, and disease-carriers.”

    Given ALIPAC’s record with the White Supremacist movement, McCain’s spokesman Brian Rogers demanded in February that JD Hayworth, “immediately disavow this group’s support.”

    Yet Jesse Kelly shows no signs of discomfort with ALIPAC’s “extremist rhetoric.” In his questionnaire seeking ALIPAC’s endorsement this year, Kelly signed a pledge that he would use “the full power of my office, including impeachment if necessary” to force the President to bow to the group’s radical demands.

    “Another NRCC Young Gun candidate, another Nazi tie — it should come as no surprise. Apparently Jesse Kelly’s support is so weak that he’s begging for help from groups on the racist fringe — even one that Senator McCain’s office has called out,” said Andy Stone, Western Regional Press Secretary for the Democratic Congressional Committee. “Jesse Kelly should be strong enough to stand up a group backed by anti-Semites and White Supremacists. But so far, he just hasn’t shown the political courage.”
