    Default Liberal Super PAC Sends Racist Tweet About Mitch McConnell’s Chinese Wife

    http://thinkprogress.org/justice/201...ist-super-pac/

    A liberal super PAC in Kentucky is on the defensive after recently sending a racist tweet attacking Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-KY) wife for being Chinese.
    McConnell, running for reelection in 2014, is married to former Labor Secretary Elaine Chao, who was born in Taiwan after her family fled mainland China during the Chinese Civil War. One super PAC dedicated to defeating McConnell, Progress Kentucky, has spent months relentlessly hammering the Republican on outsourcing.
    However, on February 14, they took the matter a step further and sent the following tweet impugning McConnell’s wife’s heritage as an explanation for why Kentucky jobs have been outsourced:

    I just love reading the intellectuals in the comment section saying that it wasn't inappropriate.

    Since she's from Taiwan, she must be outsourcing jobs to China. On second thought, it might not be racist, just FUCKING STUPID.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Not racist in my opinion, but calling her integrity into question because of her original nationality. There is a word for it, but I can't pull it at the moment. Xenophobia maybe?

    I just thought it was stupid.

    It's not racist. The tweet was insensitive and stupid, sure, but not racist.

    We're getting to the point where even mentioning another race is construed as racist.

    It's Mitch McConnell's wife so it is acceptable.

    I actually haven't read the comments section, but I'm sure they're defending it like you said.
