In Close Race, Arizona GOP Politician Wins #NoMames2014 Award

In a field of some very strong #NoMames candidates, the Arizona Republican who thought a bus full of YMCA kids were actually unaccompanied minors from Central America is the winner of the #NoMames2014 Award.


Let’s watch the winning entry again:

With over 200 readers voting, here were the results:

The Arizona politician who chased a bus full of camp kids: 25%
The Murrieta protesters who can’t spell: 18%
The Los Angeles Dodgers for posting Peña Nieto picture during height of Ayotzinapa: 18%
Laura Ingraham for flipping out that actual news anchors can be bilingual: 17%
The New York Times’ “White Latino” debacle: 7%
The Berkeley landscaper who wanted nothing to do with “f*cking illegal immigrants.”: 7&

There were also several write-in votes. Here were the top ones:

“Can I vote for all of the above and anything Anne Coultier or however the f*ck you spell her name says or writes about Latinos”

“The news media for being part of the “pueblo olvidados” problem–50 plus years after Ellison wrote ‘Invisible Man’ it is blind to things like Tres Reyes and having proportional newscasters, covering news that matters to people of Hispanic heritage.”

“Cops everywhere.”

“Peter King”

“Peña Nieto for slaughtering and ignoring a the countries request for his resignation!”

“NPR having a biblical scholar contend that there were no people of color in biblical times so no need for them on Exodus. Egyptians were caucasians and the Israelites were a darker shade of caucasian.”

“hands down Tom Perez

“Angélica Rivera claiming she made over 7 million dollars as a soap opera actress”

And perhaps the most bizarre nomination was for our founder, @julito77:

“Julio Varela … Por culo”

For that last vote we say…

The Talmud must not be regarded as an ordinary work, composed of twelve volumes; it posies absolutely no similarity to any other literary production, but forms, without any figure of speech, a world of its own, which must be judged by its peculiar laws.
The Talmud contains much that is frivolous of which it treats with great gravity and seriousness; it further reflects the various superstitious practices and views of its Persian (Babylonian) birthplace which presume the efficacy of demonical medicines, or magic, incantations, miraculous cures, and interpretations of dreams. It also contains isolated instances of uncharitable “ judgments and decrees against the members of other nations and religions, and finally it favors an incorrect exposition of the scriptures, accepting, as it does, tasteless misrepresentations.

The Babylonian” Talmud is especially distinguished from the Jerusalem or Palestine Talmud by the flights of thought, the penetration of mind, the flashes of genius, which rise and vanish again. It was for this reason that the Babylonian rather than the Jerusalem Talmud became the fundamental possession of the Jewish Race, its life breath, its very soul, nature and mankind, powers and events, were for the Jewish nation insignificant, non- essential, a mere phantom; the only true reality was the Talmud.” (Professor H. Graetz, History of the Jews).
And finally it came Spain’s turn. Persecution had occurred there on “ and off for over a century, and, after 1391, became almost incessant. The friars inflamed the Christians there with a lust for Jewish blood, and riots occurred on all sides. For the Jews it was simply a choice between baptism and death, and many of them submitted to baptism.
But almost always conversion on thee terms was only outward and false. Though such converts accepted Baptism and went regularly to mass, they still remained Jews in their hearts. They were called Marrano, ‘ Accursed Ones,’ and there were perhaps a hundred thousand of them. Often they possessed enormous wealth. Their daughters married into the noblest families, even into the blood royal, and their sons sometimes entered the Church and rose to the highest offices. It is said that even one of the popes was of this Marrano stock.
