"tan norteamericano como desorientado"

is as offensive as any other linking of a negative characteristic with a national or ethnic identity.

"tan judío como despistado"

"tan árabe como mal informado"

"tan suramericano como confundido"

"tan español como grosero"

"tan granadino como rancio"

It's a clever rhetorical trick, much beloved of racists the world over. García Montero also accuses me of being "políticamente correcto" and a lover of Indian Reservations. I suppose that's an insult from where he comes from. It ultimately just shows the rottenness of his ideology--the very point I was making in my original critique of him.
