They’re all fruit pickers: Obama’s immigration speech ‘most racist’ ever?

President Obama’s primetime speech Thursday night caused feelings of anger for many, and not only because he granted de-facto amnesty to millions of illegal aliens.

During the speech the president referred to illegals as “workers who pick our fruit and make our beds.” Astounding when you consider this was a prepared speech written, read and edited by a team of professionals who somehow allowed that line to get through.

He also mentioned a young woman named Astrid Silva, who was brought to America by her parents at the age of four, became a great student and is working on her third degree from college.

“Her father worked in landscaping. Her mom cleaned other people’s homes,” he said in describing her parents.

That was enough to set the Twittersphere on fire with at least one person referring to it as the most racist speech since Woodrow Wilson.

    No the racist reside on this post. He was speaking of low wage and skill level of workers. Are you that ignorant that you could not understand that? Either you are to slow or just retarded.

    This country and government were founded by immigrants. How is it that some people don’t deserve to come to this country? What is it that you have to earn to become a citizen? What is it that we have earned that they have yet to earn? This is an issue that has risen out of fear of what could be another group becoming better than another. It has its roots in racism and fear of the unknown.

    I guess to say they cut your lawns and make your beds ect is factual for the rich fat cats like obama and hillary but for us, the working middle class who cut our own lawns and make our own beds its just as insulting as it is to working hispanics
