When Democrats aren't shoving Hispanic people's kids and comparing Latinos to tacos, they're insulting Mexican-born women with racist tropes.

Because, as we all know by now, open bigotry is more than fine - if you're a leftist.

A blogger backed by Democrat money has launched a racist smear campaign against Rep. Mayra Flores, a Republican and the first Mexican-born congresswoman in U.S. history, calling her “Miss Frijoles" and even tacitly comparing her to a slave.

According to reports, Jerry McHale, who runs the far-left blog “The McHale Report,” received a $1,200 check from Democratic Rep. Vicente Gonzalez's campaign on June 24 for “advertising services” - but the blog never ran any Gonzales ads.

Instead, the online rag suddenly began referring to Flores as “Miss Frijoles” – 21 times, in fact, per NBC News – and calling her a “cotton-pickin’ liar.”

Flores, a staunch border security advocate and pro-lifer who was recently inaugurated in June after a special election, has accused Gonzalez of paying the blog to publish the racist attacks.

“My far left opponent, Vincent Gonzalez, hired a local blogger to run hateful & racist ads against me,” Flores charged in a Twitter post Monday.

(In case you’re confused, Gonzalez, who currently represents Texas’ 15th District, is now challenging Flores’ seat in the 34th.)

The congresswoman then played into the smears, joking, “But, I love frijoles & I grew up eating frijoles. I am not embarrassed of my upbringings & frijoles w/tortillas de harina is simply the best. Here's to Miss Frijoles 2022”

Gonzalez, of course, denies having anything to do with the racist slurs, saying those were entirely McHale’s and that the timing is mere coincidence.

As for McHale, he told NBC News he has no plans of apologizing for the bigoted insults – or of stopping.

“I am a liberal Democrat. And it’s war against the Republican ... I’m going to be merciless with her,” he said.

The blog has continued to slam Flores and her criticisms, comparing her to a “Mexican jumping bean” and writing, “She might have an argument if we had called her ‘Miss Spic’ as a part of our campaign against her, but when did frijoles become the equivalent of the ‘N’ word?

Which, ironically, the McHale Report has also used.
