I might go along with the idea that Rep. Luis Gutierrez is a Latino "Martin Luther King figure" when--in "his confrontational style"--he does something that actually threatens to hurt his political career. ... P.S.: I always thought Cesar Chavez was the Latino Martin Luther King. But then Chavez opposed illegal immigration for much of his career, so he won't do. ... P.P.S.: Newsweek quotes Gutierrez as saying:Must stink to be a non-immigrant constituent of his, no?
“I have only one loyalty,” he says, “and that’s to the immigrant community.”
Really? He can he get away with that? He's a U.S. Congressman and has no loyalty to non-immigrant Americans, or America as a whole? Michelle Obama couldn't get away with the African American equivalent ... Note: I'm not saying Gutierrez has opened himself up to a charge of "dual loyalty." He's declaring single loyalty. Dual loyalty would be an improvement ... 1:08 a.m.
