Washington Times rag blames Latinos for crisis

After a morning of listening to Republican whining about who is to blame, and hearing several references, by wingers to the "brilliant suggestions" in todays Washington Times editorial, I decided to hold my nose and pay them a visit.
Obviously, they are not on my normal reading list. Much to my surprise not only were they proposing the usual cut capital gains taxes, and corporate taxes, and loosen regulation insanity that is the right wing solution to the mess they created (more of the same) but they have now decided to not just blame black folks for the mortgage crisis - Latinos are now a scapegoat.
EDITORIAL: The bailout that wasn't
The editorial has 3 bulleted points. Number three follows.
Their authority cited in point 3 is none other than arch-racist Michelle Malkin:
* Carefully examine the link between illegal immigration and the mortgage mess. Columnist Michelle Malkin writes on her blog that many of the areas hardest hit by the foreclosure wave, among them Loudoun County, Va., happen to be some of the largest illegal-alien sanctuaries. She points out that amnesty-promoting groups like the National Council of La Raza have received millions in federal funds to counsel their clients on obtaining mortgages with virtually no money down, and Mrs. Malkin has reported how major banks like Wachovia and Bank of America have launched campaigns soliciting business from illegal aliens.
I had to go back and read this paragraph twice.
WHAT the @#*##?!!
I'm sure that Lou Dobbs will be spewing this this evening. Since I don't watch him, I won't have to see it. But just wanted to give everyone a heads up on this latest twist from the sewer mind of the right wing. This is "payback" for Latinos deserting the Republican Party in droves. Since the racists of the US view all Latinos as aliens - who cares what type of xenophobic reaction this will stir up.
