A New Jersey Republican on the ballot in November for the House seat being vacated by retiring GOP Rep. Frank LoBiondo asserts that diversity is “a bunch of crap” and an “un-American” idea, a video shows.
Running for the Garden State’s 2nd Congressional District, Seth Grossman also suggested American was “great” before affirmative action and before women worked, and claimed African Americans would profit from stronger immigration enforcement, the video taken by a Democratic PAC, American Bridge to the 21st Century shows, Philly.com reported. “The whole idea of diversity is a bunch of crap and un-American,” Grossman complains, the video shows.
“What diversity has become, it’s an excuse by Democrats, communists and socialists, basically, to say that we’re not all created equal, that if some people or somebody is less qualified, they will get a job anyway or they’ll get into college anyway because of the tribe, what group or what box they fit into,” he says.
“Women, African American, Hispanic, they’re chopping us up into different pieces and getting us fighting against each other instead of spending our time saying everybody should be judged by their own talent, their work.
“Once we say that Republicans want these traditional ways that made America great for all these years, then maybe African Americans will realize if we enforce our immigration laws, they’ll be more opportunities for Americans of all backgrounds,” he says.
“When we talk about women saying ‘Well we need special care for child care, we need this credit and that credit.’ I say wait a minute, when America was great, one parent alone earned more than enough money to comfortably support a family.”
Grossman told philly.com he stood by his April 21 comments. He’s running against state Democratic Sen. Jeff Van Drew.
