Senator Menendez Blames Racism for Sex Scandal

I solemnly swear to be an even bigger embarrassment to the Democratic Party than you, Joe.

Bob has a point. Why isn’t Ron Wyden being accused of having sex with Guatemalan call girls? It’s because he’s white, isn’t it?

At a Black History Month event held at a Trenton, N.J. church on Sunday, Democratic Senator Bob Menendez blamed conservatives for his ethics scandals, framing them as a racial attack on him because of his Hispanic heritage. “I have felt the sting of discrimination,” he told approximately 300 worshipers, according to the Bergen Record. ”It has never been easy.”

“Now we face anonymous, faceless, nameless individuals from right-wing sources seeking to destroy a lifetime of work,” Menendez said at Shiloh Baptist Church.

“And their smears are false. I have worked too hard and too long in the vineyards, too long with my hands, for the harvest to be soured.”

This is just embarrassing. Couldn’t the Honorable Gentleman from New Jersey call in Joe Biden to scream, “He’s gonna put y’all in chains”? That would have been more dignified.

So apparently Bob has been working a lot with his hands and he’s afraid that the harvest of Guatemalan call girls will be soured. It’s awful when you’ve spent a long time in the red light vineyards and something about Martin Luther King…

“Dr. King said that ‘the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice,’” Menendez said. “In the end, I believe that justice will overcome the forces of darkness.”

I’m pretty sure that sound you just heard was King rolling over in his grave. But that’s the sound you hear when any politician makes a speech about him.

“Scriptures — scriptures tell us that he who ‘puts his hand to the plough and looks back is not fit for the Kingdom of God.’”

Stop Bob, please just stop.

“I have my hand on the plough,” he said, “and I am going to continue to look forward and to work to make that plough lead us to the fulfillment of educational, economic and health care opportunity in this country.”

I don’t… what?

Senator Menendez has a plough in a vineyard and the plough is leading us to health care, but if we look back we’ll see all the Guatemalan call girls.

    He might be able to pull that trick off if he were black, and a member of the NAACP, or Congressional Black Caucus. But the way Menendez presently looks, NAHHH, Bobby got caught with his pants down lower than William Jefferson Clinton's!

    • Ar'nun

      Like Zimmermann he is a "white Latino" and therefore not as protected.

      • JacksonPearson

        Yep, but if they can get away with it, they all carry a race-card in their wallet.

  • Mary Sue

    so…he's playing the field until they plow him under?

    • jakespoon

      He evidently believes God is like a hat, just put Him on when you need Him. Did you look back to see if God was watching while you banged the juvenile,senator?

    • Mary

      Love it! He needs a cell.

  • Vardit

    Ron Wyden is not as handsome and irresistible as Menendez is:):) and Ron Wyden does not have that "pick on me" face cause Ron, you see is white.. Excedrin headache No. gzillion and 1

    Unfortunately he likes to "Plough" underage fields. Maybe if he stuck to more seasoned soil he wouldn't have any issues right now.

    • beez

      I wonder how many African-Americans are going to remember that if Menendez was "ploughing" underage fields in the Dominican Republic, the chances are quite high that he "plowed" the fields of underage black girls. Does any African-American really want to defend this man considering the racial identity and age of the alleged victims?

  • beez

    Aside from his name, who would even consider him Hispanic? I have a next door neighbor who's Hispanic, but he's from Spain, and he's as white as I am. His wife is Caucasian American. I never even think of my neighbor as Hispanic, nor does he, really. He has no perceptible accent just like Menendez. I mean, Menendez is just desperate. Does he really think that that African-American audience should believe that he has suffered what their ancestors suffered in this country? That's absurd and insulting to their intelligence.

    • JacksonPearson

      Most Spaniards always were a light complected people, and still are. The darkness came when the Conquistadors mingled with, and intermarried with Central American Indians.

    Isn't it convenient to blame everything but Menendez's own pathetic lack of willpower to have sex with underage prostitutes.. Its only naughty when you get caught eh! .I don't feel sorry for any of these politicians who serve only themselves, and deserve to be ousted and replaced by people who live by ethics and values!

    Ditto what the opinionator Beez has stated above. The left , no matter what color or supposed religion that they claim to profess are nothing but anti-Western Civilization out of pure jealousy and covetous. They are a virulent cancer that has to be removed ( quoting Marxists : ” By any means necessary ” ! . Self-preservation must be realized by people of the West.)

  • Capt_Z1

    Any time that a minority politician claims racism when he is challenged on ehtics. He is "GUILTY"

  • Junk Bin

    this guy is a complete porcine fece

  • Nan

    I am sorry, but he looks like he has never worked a day in his life, let alone in a vineyard or field.

  • Thomas Jersey.

    The smoke of corruption, play for pay, and sexual escapades has been swirling around Bob Menendez
    for ages. Where there's smoke…….He now throws the race card. He's a low life and always has been.

  • Johnconrad

    I worked in New Jersey for years.

    They've had plenty of good opportunities to oust this farce of a man and his compatriots.

    Yet, they meekly pay their tolls and look to the nanny state.

  • Bettelu Briel

    a man who seeks sex outside of marriage is a sinner in God's eyes. To have sex with underage girls is even worse. I don't see any racism in this case, just a guilty person who is trying to divert attention from wrongdoing from himself.
