Harald Martin says AUHSD students are "Tribbles"

Racist Anaheim Union High School District Trustee Harald Martin apparently compared students in his district to Tribbles – furry little creatures from an old Star Trek T.V. show, according to Gustavo Arellano’s latest post at the O.C. Weekly’s Navel Gazing blog.

Here is Martin’s quote, “”…Where they have these little creatures that boarded the ship…And they came on the ship and everyone loved them. They were so cute and fluffy, nice little things when there were four or five of them. Then it got to the point down the road when it wasn’t so nice. they were getting in the way because there now were thousand of them on the ship.

Arellano found the quote in a 1999 NPR interview.

In the Star Trek episode in question, Captain Kirk had to figure out how to get rid of the Tribbles. Wikipedia sheds more light on the Tribbles, “According to Leonard McCoy‘s dialog their only two purposes in life appear to be to eat and to reproduce, and they perform both of these functions well.”

So apparently Martin thinks that all Mexicans are capable of is eating and reproducing. He could not be more wrong. He will find out soon that we are good at getting rid of racist politicians too. He has inadvertently woken up Orange County’s sleeping oso…
