Thursday from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m., just about all of the anti-Mexican bigots in Arizona politics are scheduled to be in the same place: at the Macayo's Mexican Kitchen on Central Avenue in Phoenix, raising money for disgraced, recalled ex-state Senate President Russell Pearce.
So beware a run on white sheets and hide that ten foot cross, because the meanest, foulest, crassest, trashiest nativists in existence will be descending on this alleged Mexican eatery to sing the praises of their corrupt, racist leader, a man who once called neo-Nazi baby-killer J.T. Ready "a true patriot" and who vilifies the American citizen children of hard-working immigrant parents as "anchor babies."
(Rumor is Olivia Cortes will be on hand to hop out of a giant flan as a bandolier-wearin' Constantin Querard sings La Cucaracha. But I've yet to confirm this.)
Here follows a list of the Pearce foot-lickers promising to be in attendance. And yes, all of the above applies to state Representative Steve Montenegro as well, because the Salvadoran native also likes hating on brown folk, too. So much so that I hear he's considering changing his last name to "Malinche."
