Hispanic Weiner Rival Objects: ‘Carlos Danger’ is Racist!

NROC has the story of Democrats turning on each other as the Weiner grows and shrinks.
Rev. Erick Salgado, who hails from the Bronx and is of Puerto Rican descent, claims the name is insulting to Hispanics. “For Anthony Weiner to hide under a Spanish name to do his bad behavior is very insulting to the Spanish community,” Salgado said yesterday.
“I believe he have [sic] to apologize to the Latino community. Every time many people do wrong behavior [sic], it’s always a Carlito, a Pedrito, a Miguelito. But behind that name, it was really not a Carlito. It was a ‘Anthony Weiner.’ You have to apologize to the Latino community. It’s an insult,” Salgado said.
Salgado has also tweeted his slap at Weiner.
I believe that Anthony should apologies to the Latino community for hiding his bad behavior under a latino name.

Salgado’s outrage is highly selective. The most recent Hispanic to get in trouble wasn’t named Carlito or Pedrito. His name is George. Where has Rev. Salgado been to defend George Zimmerman from the Democrats’ national lynching of him? I can’t find any record of Salgado defending Zimmerman at all, just a neutral statement after the verdict came in.
Saldago has seen fit to praise current Mayor Bloomberg’s drive to make New Yorkers take stairs instead of escalators:
I agree with the Mayor we should all use the stairs more, we’ll burn more calories, use less electricity, but let’s wait til the heat breaks

He goaded the governor of Puerto Rico for endorsing a rival candidate who is not Puerto Rican.
Why Sila endorse Quinn and not me . In 4 years of being governor of PR she never got anything right. Some things never change Juanma.

Nothing about George Zimmerman, though, among Salgado’s many tweets replete with questionable spelling.
Salgado’s take on “Carlos Danger” isn’t original to him, by the way. Zombie pointed out the racial implications of Weiner’s chosen sobriquet earlier this week. Zombie saw it as Weiner stereotyping the “hot, Latin lover” rather than an insult.
