Secret Service Confiscates Forks and Silverware from Hispanic diners at Obama Fundraiser (via Politico)

For all of Obama's grandstanding with his promise to provide 800,000 work permits to young undocumented immigrants, The White House's perception of the Hispanic community may be somewhat skewed.

At a conference luncheon for the National Association of Latino Elected & Appointed Officials, the White House apparently looked out over a crowd that looked something like this:
And decided they saw something like this:
Because the minions of the First Black/Gay American President who can look out at an Hispanic crowd and "see myself, and my children" confiscated all the table knives from the luncheon, precut everybody's chicken, and then went around and collected the forks from every single diner, young and old, male and female, hale or handicapped, before The One would deign appear before them.

You know.  Just like they did for all the fundraisers Obama did for white folks like George Clooney and Sarah Jessica Parker.

Making that announcement was a proud, proud moment for board member Raquel Regalado...
 "What's Spanish for shit-eating grin?"
But you know what?  This is not the time to play politics, with our nation in such dire straits.  We need to show Our President that we support him and thank him for his trust in the Hispanic community for even deigning to speak before them in the first place.

To that end, I believe a symbolic gesture is in order, and that gesture is:
Yes, everyone of us should send a humble but patriotic "spork" to the White House, and to the headquarters of NALEO, to show that we understand the true depth and integrity both of Obama's support for Hispanics, and NALEO's patriotic willingness to sacrifice all dignity and self-respect to advance the President's campaign!

Do it today!

There may be another explanation why Obama's team got rid of the cutlery...
