Gustavo Arellano: A Bigoted OCWeekly Lefty

Referencing an article on OCWeekly: In a recent article over at the left-leaning OCWeekly, a left-wing extremist, named Gustavo Arellano who writes for the God-awful publication that promotes racism, recently wrote a piece titled,

Bigot and Racist

Bigot and Racist

“Report: Tea Party Republicans Ate Crappy Mexican Food While They Plotted to Destroy America with Government Shutdown”. Typical of Socialist tripe, this moron enjoys making baseless statements that he could not back up with facts even if he actually knew how to research them.  The mantra of, “always blame others for your own failures” seems to permeate these idiotic articles.  In one bountifully and intellectually charged statement, Arellano said, “stuck in the 1980s, just like the politics of Cruz and his pendejos”.  For those of us that don’t know what the word “pendejos” means, it translates to “asshole”.  Really? You try and impeach others with slanderous statements, and all you can do is call names?  What Arellano failed to do, besides act like an adult and respectfully disagree with fellow human beings, is bring up any topics that he disagrees with, and why.  As his stretched-to-the-limit double-digit I.Q. would perpetuate, he is too paranoid to bring up any facts because he would soon come to appear foolish, being unable to support his emotion-based tirade. My kids are half-Hispanic. Their mom is Hispanic.  I have been heavily involved in the Hispanic community for years now, and currently live in a predominately Hispanic city/neighborhood.  What I have not seen, is this kind of racist and bigoted attitude, especially coming from a community publication that should hold themselves to a higher standard. I am truly disappointed that a publication that is supposed to represent Orange County, California would be so irresponsible to have such nonsense published on their site.  This sort of garbage is divisive and hurtful, especially considering that OCWeekly has successfully alienated at least 50% of their readers by taking such an extremist and irresponsible approach to who and what they publish.  How’s that for a business model?  This rag does not by any means represent the thoughts, feelings, politics, or intellect of any of the fellow business owners, Hispanic or otherwise, that our businesses deal with in Orange County.  Shame on you, OCWeekly.  You have diminished yourself with this ugly, bigoted person.

    Can you clarify where race is even mentioned in Arellano’s piece? Cruz is Hispanic. Arellano is not hating on Hispanics so he’s free to criticize Cruz’s politics, which a lot of Republicans are doing as well and pendejo is mild compared to what’s on the internet about Cruz. I understand you may not like Arellano’s politics but you called him a “socialist” and a “moron” and then complained that he’s a name-caller and incapable of civil discourse. You realize your hypocrisy, right? Why undermine your points by commiting the very errors you say you found so offensive? Conservatives deserve better representatives than people who are oblivious to their own actions. Jesus said “let he who is without sin, cast the first stone” and you seem to think no one can see the stones in your hands. You have kids that I’m sure you want to live by the values they believe in rather than being one of those who don’t practice what they preach. Start by setting a good example.

      The clarification is in his own words. He has continually written in racist and bigoted terms. You might want to read what he has written, and then get back to us.

      When someone represents himself in such a negative way, insulting, slandering others, he is indeed hating on his own. He diminishes all that he stands for. I do agree, however that Republicans are as bad as the Democrats. The Daily Digest is a politically agnostic publication. Most of the people that have written for us would not vote for either side of that single coin. It’s a fools’ venue.

      We called it as we saw it. As he seems to open the door to name-calling with his inflammatory style, our response was in keeping with the spirit of his article. No hypocrisy here, simply calling his behavior out for what it is.

      If you wish to cite doctrine of some sort, perhaps you can find a nice “Christian” site that will be happy to banter with you. Citing your religious beliefs here, and expecting others to respond to that inappropriate subject, will be fruitless. This is not your church, we are not your preacher.

      We did set an example. We noted the injustice, editorialized about it, promoted it, and will continue to do so. We will call out those the wish to divide our country – doesn’t matter what political affiliation they adhere to. We have strong opinions about nasty, ugly, and bullying people. People, like Gustavo Arellano, that would not directly respond to our article, but preferred to tweet to all his followers to have them do his dirty work for him. That cowardly approach is not only demeaning to the Hispanic community, but is the real “bad example” that you should be speaking out against.

        To clarify, I did not respond to defend Arellano. He’s a professional writer and doesn’t need the help. I don’t know him. I wanted to help you because you seemed passionate but incoherent. If you have good ideas, you owe it to the cause to be clear and cogent.

        You punt questions rather than answer them. Where’s the racism? You wrote “When someone represents himself in such a negative way, insulting, slandering others, he is indeed hating on his own.” You offered your own definition which oddly does not include the concept of race. You lose credibility by appearing to make things up for convenience sake. Use a dictionary or the Supreme Court definition. Don’t undermine your own credibility.

        Why resort to the behavior you denounce? “He seemed to open the door…” Well, 99% of parents just stopped reading. He did it first? That’s a reason? You’re a parent so you recognize juvenile behavior. Its understandable in a child but you’re an adult writing for other adults.

        “We noted the injustice…” No, you didn’t. Read what you wrote again. You noted that you did not like his opinion nor his style. Both are protected speech under the First Amendment. Injustice needs to show damaged parties not just hurt feelings. You didn’t even bother to give examples. You punted again saying it’s all over his writing. C’mon. How committed are you if you can’t bother to cite a single example

          Please, if you care about what you’re writing, let any friend give you honest criticism about where your writing falls short. You are your own worst enemy by thinking that you’re getting your points across when its really kind of a mess. Lots of indignation and little common sense or reason. Indignation is a commodity in 2013. If your opinion deserves better, it must speak to adults and make sense. I suspect you’re not getting a response from the OCWeekly because they feel comfortable letting you shoot yourself in the foot.

          First, our editorials go through our in-house counsel before we publish them. Thanks for the offer of help, but we have it covered. We have researched and written on Constitutional Law and are versed in that area.

          Secondly, I tried to make my response as simple as possible without sacrificing clarity. You don’t seem to get it so I can’t help you there.

          If you want examples of his work that support my stance, again I suggest that you can find it all over the net. I won’t do you research for you. You might start with Google. If you are committed to dispelling what I have written about your friend, it would seem to me you would come armed with more than your unprofessional “feelings” and would not have to ask us to do your research for you.

          You might cite what your credentials are to question others when you have brought nothing but your feelings to respond with.

    In their effort to paint the Tea Party as bad guys, Arellano basically accuses the Tea Party of being responsible for the decor and mediocre food at the restaurant where they ate. Quite funny.

      True. And without foundation they attack ideals they don’t understand.
