Just when you think Senator Phil Jensen had that foot out of his mouth…

Just when you think Phil Jensen had that foot out of his mouth from last election’s comments over racial discrimination….

“If someone was a member of the Ku Klux Klan, and they were running a little bakery for instance, the majority of us would find it detestable that they refuse to serve blacks, and guess what? In a matter of weeks or so that business would shut down because no one is going to patronize them,” Jensen told the Rapid City Journal.

Read that here.

…. he manages to wedge it back in there with the other foot with his comments in today’s Rapid City Journal:

Speaking over the phone on the way to Pierre on Tuesday, Jensen recalled when one of his constituents told him he witnessed “dozens of South Americans” fleeing a white bus parked near downtown Rapid City.

“He knew they were South Americans,” Jensen said, “because they had different skull structures and skin tones from Mexicans.”

He knew they were South Americans,” Jensen said, “because they had different skull structures and skin tones from Mexicans.”  Wow. I didn’t realize we had anthropology and bone structure experts wandering the streets.

It’s time to start cringing again.

    Sounds like he’s read Elizabeth Warren’s autobiography.

    His comments were entirely taken from the person who reported the incident, so it’s a little disingenuous to report it as his assessment.

    From the American Clarion – “Jensen also clarified that the description cited was how his constituent had described the individuals in question. (Apparently, with RINOs waiting in the wings to smear you, you can’t even relate what another person told you without risking an assault on your character). The constituent stated he (the constituent) had spent a lot of time in South America, and due to his experience, said that there were anatomical differences that a seasoned eye could identify between a typical Mexican (from Central America) and a typical South American person.”

    Senator Jensen continued re-elections are a testimony to the intelligence and sensible conservativism of his constituents, in spite of the rabid and vapid protestations of the regressive left and cowardly RINOs.
