George Lopez: “Romney is a fucking Latino and he won’t admit it.”

As if Mitt Romney needed the pressure of having his white male privilege challenged by yet another minority — c’mon, you know it’s the only reason he demanded an apology from Barack Obama — in steps comedian George Lopez to pull his card. In a recent stand-up routine, Lopez shocked the world when he said, “Mitt Romney wants the Latino vote. He ain’t going to get it. He ain’t going to get it. And you know why? Because Mitt Romney is a fucking Latino and he won’t admit it.”

Amid roars of laughter, he continued, “His father was born in Chihuahua, Mexico. Mitt Romney is a Chicano. But he won’t admit it. “I am not. I am Danish. I am French.” Something I pointed out recently when I wrote about how disappointed Romney’s Mexican cousins were with him over proposed his immigration policy. Romney isn’t supportive of comprehensive immigration reform, and has promoted what he calls a policy of “self-deportation.” Romney is also opposed to the DREAM Act which provides a pathway to citizenship to anyone brought into the country illegally as children through no fault of their own; he has stated that any such bill would receive a veto from him as president.

Lopez’s bit ended with some stern words for Arizona sheriff, Joe Arpaio, the controversial anti-immigrant enforcer currently under investigation by the DOJ for civil rights violations. As well as assembling his “cold case posse” to investigate the validity of Barack Obama’s birth certificate.

However, before putting Arpaio on blast, Lopez had the following to say about Romney, ” If you want our vote puto, come out of the closet. Get a hair net and lean back and say ole…His father, his grandfather went to Mexico to create a Mormon colony. That don’t sit good with Mexicans when you want six wives to get twelve kids. Fucking Latinos can have one wife and get twelve kids. Don’t fucking cheat.” Pretty funny stuff if you ask me, but I’m sure others disagree. However you may feel about it, all is fair when it comes to comedy — especially when it’s true. Like Obama’s father, Romney’s was not born in America.

Lopez had some kind words for president Obama, who he touted as being the closest thing  to a Latino there is. That said, from the looks of it, Mitt Romney will also have to worry about producing his birth certificate as well as his taxes. Heck, maybe we can put together a cold case posse of our own. I know, it sounds absurd; but hey, many believe Obama is Kenyan.
