    “Debbie spend so much American money, you borrow more and more from us,” says a young Asian woman riding her bike through rice paddies at the beginning of the 30-second ad. “You’re economy get very weak. Ours get very good. We take your jobs. Thank you Debbie ‘Spend It Now.’”

    It is the racial undertones of the ad that have critics up in arms. The Associated Press reports that Michigan GOP consultant Nick De Leeuw called the ad “appalling” and the Asian and Pacific Islander American Vote’s Michigan chapter condemned the ad as “very disturbing.”

    “It is very disturbing that Mr. Hoekstra’s campaign chose to use harmful and negative stereotypes that intrinsically encourage anti-Asian sentiment,” the group said in a statement Sunday.

    Hoekstra responded to the barrage of criticism Sunday night, writing on his Facebook page that “Democrats trying to make this an issue of race demonstrates their total ignorance of job creation policies.”

    I don't see how it is racist but it is funny and ironic that a Republican would say Democrats are ignorant when it Republican trickle down economics and unFree Trade Agreements that got us in this mess.

    Yeah, it makes Hoekstra a dishonest asshole for pretending he isn't being criticized by Republicans.

    I agree.

    It's not a strong position indeed.

    I don't really care who's criticizing who. It's not racist to point out the destruction of this country by incompetent bastards of either party.

    RACISM?!?!?!? Really????

    Oh my GAWD... every time you guys turn over a rock there is either:

    1. Racism
    2. Exploitative Rich People
    3. Racism AND Exploitative Rich People

    You need to get a new war cry. This is getting to be a badge of honor.

    Have you been called a racist by the left-wing? No? Next, it's obvious you're not doing or saying much.

    I think its pretty rude to imitate asian accents and misuse of English grammar.

    Reads like a racial stereotype to me:
