Lori Klein, Anthem Racist, Gets the Carlos Galindo Treatment

>p>

Who let this gum-smacking, white trash witch out of her cage?

Oh, do I have a treat for you. Here's a new video from Phoenix activist and radio show host Carlos Galindo of him taking on racist Republican state Senator Lori Klein. In the video, Klein basically admits to telling an American citizen protestor that she should, "Go back to Mexico."

Klein's the wingnut lickspittle whose over-lipsticked gob is SuperGlued to state Senate President Russell Pearce's, um, ring. She's infamous for a reading bogus letter on the Senate floor from bigot-boy substitute teacher Tony Hill, wherein he falsely accuses little kids of making anti-American statements and of aspiring to be gangbangers.

It was later revealed by my colleague Paul Rubin that Hill has a spotty marital history, with a judge awarding custody of his minor kids to their mother. 

The judge noted:

"Father has a history of exploding by verbally calling the minor children vulgar names and using intimidating gestures towards Mother and the children...Father choked Mother at one point and physically abused the family pet in front of the children."

Which, of course, is reminiscent of Russell Pearce's wife LuAnne accusing the now-Senate President of choking her at one point in their marriage. This, from a 1980 petition for dissolution of marriage. The Pearce's are still together, but since this is common knowledge, perhaps Hill felt like Pearce was a kindred spirit, resulting in Hill's e-mail to him.

See, Pearce got Klein to read the letter because she's good like that. Also, she's a bigot just like Pearce. I know because I once observed Klein and her fellow piece of white trash, state Senator Al Melvin, mocking the accent of a Hispanic lobbyist as he testified before the state Senate Appropriations Committee.

In any case, Galindo dogged her mercilessly at the Capitol, as cops watched from nearby. I know a lot of local, pro-immigrant activists despise Galindo for various reasons. But all I've got to say is that the enemy of your enemy is your pal, particularly when he's giving a drubbing to a middle-aged windbag like Klein.

Regarding insensitive statements Galindo's made in the past about the Jewish people, I know that Galindo recently apologized for those statements to Bill Straus of the Arizona ADL when they ran into each other at the state Legislature. 

That doesn't excuse Galindo's words, of course. But it should be taken into consideration when discussing him.

Let's put it this way, if he's sincere in his apology, Galindo will never say anything like that again. By their fruits, ye shall know them.

I don't agree with all of Galindo's words or methods. Not by a long shot. And I didn't agree with him going after Democratic state Senator Kyrsten Sinema in the manner that he did. I thought the attacks were unfair, and still do.

But, when Galindo's messing with the right folks, as he did recently with the Phoenix police union PLEA, I can't argue with him. 

Also, I like the credit at the end of this video where he states, "Filmed on location [at] the Pit of Hell called the Arizona state Capitol."

Heh, good one, dude.

Having Galindo as one of your writers is just another example of how low the New Times has fallen. I would trust the Enquirer before this rag.

Carlos is a coward! He wanted to interview me but when I went on his site he deleted me quick! He is only interested in spreading his one-sided rhetoric for the illegal community and of course the big chicano movement. Very unprofessional and childlike. Not surprising he has some followers.

As an elected Democratic State Committeeman and Precinct committeeman for Mesa LD 18, speaking in my official capacity, I think that Sen. Klein should resign. I call on Sen. Klein to resign she does not represent all of Arizona.

RE Klein:

Last time I saw a mouth that big and slimy it had a hook in it.

I seriously think that Klein thinks that all Hispanics are illegals. No wonder the "education" section of her bio is blank. These are the ignorant, uneducated bigots who are making our laws.

Galindo should have said that her PROBATION OFFICER is paying him to check up on her. For those of you who don't know, Senator Klein, who calls Hispanic youth criminals, is currently on PROBATION for a DUI.

What part of illegal don't you understand, Lori?

If I heard her correctly I think she is STILL saying the letter she read was accurate and truthful. Wow, what does it take for someone of her ilk to see what is honest and correct? Yes, that's simply a rhetorical. I know her ilk don't get into honesty and correctness.

So why don't thousands of Hispanic kids write letters to Klein, et. al. telling them they DON'T want to be gangsters and drug dealers. If it's letters that sway her, send them. Here's her address:

Senator Lori Klein1700 W. WashingtonRoom 302Phoenix, AZ 85007Phone Number: (602) 926-5284Fax Number: (602) 417-3270Email Address: lklein@azleg.gov

This ain't hard.

Senator Klein is probably so far up Pearce's ass it's impossible to tell where he ends and she begins.

Does she even have a brain in her head? Then again, does any Arizona politician?

I think Carlos Galindo is a walking piece of shit. But you gotta give him credit on some of the works he's done. Such as showing the universe, Lori KKKlein's true colors. This should be enough to turn away the "Anna Gaines" of the RepubliKKKoon Party. That is if you're "Hispanic", just like "Anna Gaines", hence the vile epithets spat from the gutter-mouth of Lori KKKlein, is directed at you--the "Hispanic"--the "Anna Gaines" of the far Right.

Talk about backstabbing the "Anna Gaines" of that politiKKKal party!

Funny that Sen. Klien stopped and engaged in dialogue with Galindo. (Dialogue for lack of a better word)

Senator Klein seems very dimwitted. I am disappointed that she is acting at the level of pearce, Kavanaugh and others of the ilk.

I've attempted contact with Sen. Klein but as of yet have received no response in any form or fashion. I thought my feedback might be important to her. Apparently not.

Chad, is it true that she was drinking tequila just before she got caught driving drunk? I suppose that might explain her utter disdain for all things Mexican. We know most of our Republican legislators always blame anyone and everything else.. so it had to have been the tequila that entrapped her into driving drunk.

How about that mr. pearce guy? He refuses to show the invoices or cancelled checks for his Fiesta Bowl trips, then pays back $272 under the assumption that he is paying twice for some tickets, then changes all his filings to reflect trips given to him. Next time I get stopped for speeding I'm going to tell the officer that I will just go half the excess speed on the trip back, thereby negating the full excess speed, according to the new rules by mr. pearce, senate president, 2011.

The problem, I think, is that we dummies who are tax payers are expecting our legislators to be as honest as they expect us to be.

East side of I-17, just north of the factory shops. It appears to be an RV sales lot, but it's really where she lives.... (just joking, I don't know that for fact, but it's certainly possible).

She's been ignoring those letters. The women is a loon who actuallty said if more people had guns when Luaghner did his shooting0they could've stopped him. I cannot find any actual gun expert or police officer that agrees with her.

Agree on your comment RE: Galindo. He's a POS alright. But he's good for this kinnda shit. He'll be talking about this article for the next 5 months on his radio programs. "Thanks to me... If it weren't for me .... Because of me... I'm the only one ... to help MY PEOPLE" My People? when did he buy them? I've heard of one's community or group or organization... only Slave Owners owned People

Not sure about the night she blew a .08 or higher, but she certainly seems to be under the influence of something strong on Galindo's video. She was probably chomping on that gum so hard to cover her stinky beer breath.

You are correct about the shooting situation. With the lag time involved in actual shooting responses it's not likely anyone would have been able to get off a shot before Loughner stopped shooting and was taken down by witnesses and victims. But the far right leaning wonderbuns all think having loads of guns there would have been a good idea. Until one of their family members was injured or killed by 'friendly fire'. Yes, the Senator seems to be several bricks light. Perhaps a 40 watt bulb operating in a 100 watt world...

Just "several bricks light" and "a 40 watt bulb operating in a 100 watt world" Mr. Collins?

You certainly must have been in an expansive, forgiving mood when you wrote those words!

I'd say her pallet didn't get a single brick loaded on it and that her 10-watt bulb burned out long ago anyway, so the wattage doesn't really matter.
