John McCain: "Illegal Immigrants Cost The Miami Heat The Championship"

Quote:

After fanning a virtual wildfire on Saturday with his comments on actual wildfires – “there is substantial evidence that some of these fires are caused by people who have crossed our border illegally,” Arizona Senator John McCain again made headlines today with some “heated” statements regarding the NBA’s Miami basketball franchise. Providing no evidence or reason whatsoever to back up his claims, McCain stated that illegal immigrants are “distracting us all” from doing our jobs as Americans.

“The elimination of Lebron James and the Miami heat from the NBA playoffs last week is yet another chilling example of illegals crossing our borders, snatching our health care, and eliminating our beloved sports teams from title contention. When will the madness end? And at what cost?”

McCain continued, “If you want me to believe that J.J. Barea is a citizen of this fine country, have him send some proof to my office. You don’t learn to speak Spanish that effectively in our school systems. That I guarantee.”

José Juan “J.J.” Barea, the feisty, Puerto Rican-born backup point guard for the NBA champion Dallas Mavericks, played an integral role in penetrating the outmatched Heat’s interior defense. When asked to comment about McCain’s rant, Barea quipped, “You know, I would have thought he was a Mavericks fan.” Full Story

No need to get defensive. He got you mixed up with another poster. That's why i stated that, so he can know who you were and he can have a little insight with your positions.

He is actually one of the better posters we have.(there aren't too many).... I happen to enjoy reading his posts. Although i don't agree with many of his positions.

He always has something worthwhile to write. He is on the "far right" politically speaking. That is where i differ from him.

I hate how some people from USA don't realize that the term "American" aplies to everyone in North, Central, and South American. We can speak two languages and that turns us into aliens??? USA is one of the few countries in the world where the average population only knows one language. In Europe and Asia schools teach 3 to 5 languages. It should be a pride knowing different languages, it opens barriers to new cultures.

McCain, more puertoricans have died in US wars by square mileage that any other state in the US. You are an Ignorant old piece of shit. That's why your wife cheats on you. Learn how to use a computer before you open your mouth first . Try to learn another language other than ignorant.

Senator Mc Cain,

Did you know that Puerto Rico is part of the USA?
By that very definition J.M. Barea is an American citizen.

While in The Navy did you ever noticed that Puerto Ricans were serving also?

In fact many excellent front line warriors were Puerto Ricans whom fought along with all others!

I respect that you were POW, son of Admiral and grandson of an Admiral however do you respect the many PR's whom also served in Wars I & WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Panama, Bosnia and countless conflicts wearing the colors of Red, White and Blue.

I am NOT sure where your mind is drifting since you flopped the election to Obama.

You make these statements without thought perhaps it's time to step down before people will only remember the idiotic statements you keep making.

Arizona is most likely becoming very toxic to you.

So you would think that a politician would know that over 2 million puerto ricans live in the united states and that Puerto Rico is a commonwealth. Let me explain that to you, McCain. Puerto Rico is US territory! Get your facts straight, the US fought with Spain in 1898 for this beautiful island. I bet you forget about all this "puerto ricans are illegal crap" when elections come, when money comes around, or when you see a beautiful puerto rican. Oh...by the way you know what's the beauty of speaking 2 languages especially spanish, it's so that when we talk about idiots like you, you don't understand when we are insulting you. Idopta por eso Obama te gano en las elecciones porque es un hombre inteligente y no un necio como tu, canto de bruto!!! Go ask Sonia Sotomayor to translate that for you.

Jorge,

As you have stated it was a HOAX! I assure you if McCain would had said that, it would had spurred me to call his office, but not one report was heard of here in the States. I did find the culprit when I came in tonight to catch up on the forum. The source came out of this blog: http://imagine2050.newcomm.org/2011/06/21/sen...

Anyone can access the page and read the article. If anyone scrolls down to the note it will claim it is “blatantly satirical”, and meant to make a point.

Just goes to prove that no one should believe what they read on the internet and that no matter the source research should be done before commenting on so-call "news."

John McCain takes the word hillbilly/redneck to a whole new level. How stupid can a person be. If this is the type of people running our country, no wonder this country is going to the crapper at such a fast pace... Of course JJ is American... I was born in Puerto Rico, my parents are legit americans... I speak perfect spanish and english... Does that make me an ilegal inmigrant you moron? No. pfft people like him make me laugh. I'd like to add that not everyone who speaks spanish is a mexican also, stop accusing and go back to school you retard.

This is a bogus article. I am surprised how many people believe everything they read on the Internet.
