Sandy Rios: Immigrants Don’t Know “Basic Hygiene”

American Family Association radio host Sandy Rios yesterday addressed an anti-immigrant hate group in Washington DC where she delivered some of her trademark Christian love. Safiyah Riddle reports at Right Wing Watch:

“Listen, I am being very impolitic here,” Rios admitted, “but, as a female I find that bathrooms have just become unbearable because I think the people coming in don’t know basic hygiene, don’t know how to handle modern amenities.”

Rios reported that these “unbearable” bathrooms are found in areas with high immigrant populations like “Washington, D.C., or if you’re in Dearborn, Michigan, or Orlando, Florida, or Los Angeles,” where “it’s often like a third-world country.” In these areas, Rios explained, “we see the changes, and we’re saying ‘no, we’ve got to control this, we’ve got to assimilate people, we’ve got to teach them all kinds of things in order to make this work.”

By contrast, Rios said, there are still parts of the country that “still look like America,” where “nothing has changed, English is heard, and things are running smoothly.”

      Why are all the church bitches like Sandy Rios addicted to restylane? Shouldn’t they be happy with the shitty face God gave them?

        She’s going for that Kathy Hilton look

      • penpal

        You’d think so, with all their hateful harping about “unnatural lifestyles”. They’re fucking hypocrites. Too bad you can’t fuck yourself with a needle to make yourself pretty on the inside the way you can with your face.

      • Her statement is true.

        Take the Muslims preparing a corpse for burial in the basement of their house. How many health codes did they violate? Many.

        Or take the Muslim couple smelled in Marseilles. They got onto public transportation, which was crowded. They wondered why there were all these empty seats around a Muslim couple. Then the smell hit them/

        • Oscarlating Wildely

          It’s pathetic, really. And fyi: your insides will give out first anyway, and they really look like shit.

        • james1200

          She and her husband had a thing for cats so she purposefully made herself look like that.

            Didn’t work. The first time I saw her, I did not think ‘cat.’
            I thought, “Michael Jackson 2.0.”

        • dagobarbz, fine Italian shoes

          Can’t say I approve of it myself… but only to the extent of going to the gym. They can keep their cosmetic surgery.

      • lattebud

        A friend is a plastic surgeon. She always discourages people from spending $20K on their face, but not take care at of themselves through lifestyle changes. Also, people think a young face will be great, but don’t address their neck or sun damaged skin

          No. I’ll ck netflix to see if it’s avail yet. Out here in the sticks – I have to wait for the DVD.

          • djcoastermark

            The movie is still on the film festival circuit. We saw it in Tampa last weekend and even got lucky enough to have cocktails and munchies with some of the cast the next day, but not Leslie 🙁 Here’s a link to the website. Check it to see if it shows anywhere near you. It may be a few months before widespread availability.

  • joeyj1220

    Actually what I think would be “unbearable in a bathroom” would be following Rios after she has dumped a massive turd in the toilet. I’m sure it would be reflective of her soul

  • Jonathan Smith
  • Gustav2

    Oh honey, I worked in a French restaurant in a wealthy white Columbus suburb, it had the worst “ladies” room of any place I have ever worked. The second worst was in the corporate dining facility of headquarters of a very white major bank.

    It’s not the immigrants, it’s you.

    (as management, when a female was not on duty with me, I had to check during down times)

    • Chris Baker

      I work for a major company, in a class-A high rise in my city. The women complain about the dirty bathroom/hygene habits of their top-of-the-class college graduates. The men’s room, on the other hand, seems fairly clean. So I wonder if just a woman thing?

      • Gustav2

        I my experience, yes. Woman’s restrooms are always worse than the men’s.

        • agcons

          I can’t upvote from personal experience, but every female friend and acquaintance confirms this when we compare notes.

        • Keroleen

          I don’t do this myself, but a large part of the mess can be attributed to “hovering”, which is what it sounds like – women who are squeamish about actually touching the seat situate themselves above it and hope for the best aim-wise. Needless to say, some aim better than others.

          • Gustav2

            Yes, even when the paper seat covers are provided.

      • Piet

        My experience, too. There was an occasional dropped paper towel in the men’s room, but the only time there was anything worse was when a pipe fitting failed and had to be repaired (water all over the counters and spilling onto the floor). The women I worked with all complained about the terrible state of their restroom, and never apparently stopped to think they were the ones making it so disgusting.

    The most disgusting bathroom I’ve ever been in was the women’s bathroom in my college dorm. These were all upper middle class mainly white people, so Sandy can politely kiss my derriere.

      Costs extra.

    • agcons

      It may have already happened and we only think it’s budget surgery.

  • Tawreos

    This crazy bitch is going to judge immigrants because high traffic public restrooms aren’t the most sanitary places on the planet? This bitch needs to get out of her ivory tower more often and see what the world is really like.

  • Kruhn

    I didn’t know there was a “Ríos” in the passenger manifest on board The Mayflower. Sandy, hun you’re just as much an immigrant as the people you’re complaining about.

    And lady, you have to stop this obsession with bathrooms! It’s unhealthy.

  • Tomcat

    I live in Tennessee where there are few immigrants BUT I have found that very few Tennesseans either flush or wash their hands after using the toilet.
    1. Either they are just proud of the present they have left for next person or they are just uncouth.
    2. They use the excuse for not washing hands to I know where my junk has been,
    very uncouth.

    • Tomcat

      In most public bathrooms in Tennessee the waste can is the cleanest thing in them,,, because they are used less.

    • FAEN

      I think there are more immigrants in TN than you’re aware of.

      EWW-who doesn’t flush?

    • fuzzybits

      And if it’s a restaurant blowing their nose at the table.

      • thatotherjean

        Sniffling all through dinner because you’re too polite to blow your nose is worse, though.

    • Xuuths

      Happens all the time here in Chicago, even at work. I think perhaps the … users… think they’re automatic flushing toilets or something. But it’s gross. Definitely a problem not confined to immigrants.

  • billbear1961

    What the FUCK has it done to its “FACE”?!

    • RoFaWh

      And they bleed from their “things” too.

  • Gigi

    One of my employees worked as a maintenance person at a very exclusive department store a few years back. While there one of her responsibilities was cleaning and maintaining the women’s bathrooms. The stories she told me about the mess created by these “wealthy, upper crust women of society” made me want to vomit. I wonder if Rios ever stopped in for a wee.

    • djcoastermark

      Years ago as a teen, I worked at a family restaurant in middle America along side a freeway. I can vouch for your friends’ experience.

    • fuzzybits

      Being in a similar situation a lot of these rich people think they can do whatever they want,someone will pick it up.

    • juanjo54

      One of the most disgusting bathrooms I ever saw was at a Cracker Barrel in central Georgia filled with red necks.

    • Todd Allis

      Upper “crust” indeed.

      • Jeffg166

        Just a lot of crust.

    • Canadian Observer

      When I was a much younger owl I had a summer job working at a gas station in a significantly more affluent part of town than I grew up in. Lots of high priced German import vehicles (and we had full service diesel pumps). One of the things we had to do at the end of the evening was a major clean up of the washrooms. For the mens we used a mop, to clean out the womens we had to bring in the high pressure hose so that we could clean the walls, floor, sink and stalls — I believe it was more of a gender thing than anything to do with their immigration status.

      • RoFaWh

        The crew member responsible for cleaning the heads on the little ferry between Mill Bay and Brentwood Bay on Vancouver Island told me exactly the same thing. The men’s were easy, the women’s were invariably an unhygienic mess.

        Can any of our female JMGers attempt a rational explanation of this difference?

        • agcons

          One of my female university classmates used the term “hover queen” to describe women so extra-dainty they never actually sat on the toilet seat. This sprayed urine “all over the goddamn place”, so this is part of the answer.

      • dagobarbz, fine Italian shoes

        I agree…women’s rooms are often MUCH worse!

  • djcoastermark

    Sandy, I implore you to work on your own personal hygiene , because, well, your face looks like shit (as well as your soul)

  • Mark McGovern

    Her looks have nothing to do with the fact that she is an ugly person. Lots of bad looking people are beautiful.

  • AtticusP

    Sandy Rios doesn’t know basic decency.

  • romanhans

    Yeah, because gas station bathrooms twenty years ago were spotless and smelled like lavender.

    • Tomcat

      And you could find a bible in each one.
      Oh wait that was the brothels, uh hotels.

    • RoFaWh

      I have no idea how they do it, but the Starbuckses around here generally have spotless restrooms, often unisex, always furnished with a drop-down changing bench. I sit to pee so I haven’t attention to the presence or absence of urinals.

  • Rebecca Gardner

    I just can’t. The unstoppable hate, bigotry, and stupidity. My mind just cannot handle it anymore. I’m too tired.

    • RoFaWh

      Rx: Buy several of Alexander McCall Smith’s series of light novels, “No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency”. Set in Botswana, with the principal characters mostly black (a few white visitors), full of human warmth.

      Then read them with a big pitcher of home made lemonade at your elbow for refreshment and forget Donald Trump for a while.

      • Rebecca Gardner

        I love your idea. Except I think I will re-read the Kushiel Trilogy. These books just showed up at my home one day. In the box was a note that read, “If a true Anguisette exists, you are it.” No signature.

        Well, I dove into those books, learned what a true Anguisette is and she’s right I am. A friend later admitted to sending them to me.

        So I think I’ll take your advice and start reading Kushiel’s Dart and escape into a world of fantasy.

        • RoFaWh

          My advice is to read something you haven’t read before.

          BTW, the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series is up to seventeen volumes now, plus at least three children’s books cut from the same bolt of cloth.

      Wait, didn’t you get the memo? Non-heteros smell like lavender. Confuses the shit out of the blue hairs.

      • Stephen Elliot Phillips

        Honestly the stinkiest human ive ever encountered was in a seafood restaurant in NJ. I was sitting at the bar with my BestF and an older white woman very well dressed sat down beside me. My friend said what is that smell? I said it aint the tuna in the kitchen…..
        Whew. Im really unsure how we could smell her vajayjay since she was clothed in winter wear…….

  • Moebym Reborn

    Apparently AFA doesn’t care for immigrant – read: “colored” – families, either. I’m beginning to think the word “family” in its title is just innocent-sounding window dressing.

    And let’s not forget: the reason public bathrooms are even clean in the first place is due to the hard work of first-generation immigrants and other downtrodden members of society who took jobs others like Sandy Rios think are beneath them.

    • MT YVR

      Well when they spew that much shit, it’s probably where they spend a lot of time getting their stories straight, their facts and figured worked out. Gods know it also helps that their bloody souls fit with the space. Swirling maelstrum of sucking. Intended for feces.

      • Beagle

        Since when is Rios “civilized”?

        • RoFaWh

          Your remark has a deeper resonance than may be obvious: you are subtly saying that Rios and her ilk are savages. Which they are, no question about it. Pagan savages, at that. We can discuss the spiritual aspects of this observation some other time.

          Well done.

          • Beagle

      • Cuberly

        It’s been proven again and again, the majority of Americans are for immigration and helping out immigrants. Especially ones from war torn countries.

        Rios and her ilk attempt to hide their disdain for a changing world behind their supposed god given right to pass judgement on anyone and everything.

  • ColdCountry

    Your upper-class white privilege is showing, dear, along with your ignorance. It is well known, among those who have to maintain public rest rooms, that woman are worse than men, although, I have found that if the bathroom is clean when someone goes in, they are more careful to keep it that way. And a lot of men do have lousy aims. Did you know, dear, that some would consider you lacking in personal hygiene because you don’t use a bidet? (At least, I assume you don’t.) Did you know that in a lot of countries there is just a hole in the floor? You take your plumbing for granted, I imagine. Travel a little, it will be enlightening. Perhaps most enlightening would be a tour of American public rest rooms.

    • Adam Stevens

      to ‘christians’ bidets are the same thing as anal sex.

      • Snarkaholic

        True; that’s why they all but disappeared from American homes and upscale hotels…because the fucking Puritanical Bible Bangers heard that people were using them for, ahem, entertainment purposes.

        • RoFaWh

          I suspect the real culprit was the standardization of the bathroom during the 1920s so it contained a toilet, a sink, and a bathtub in a 5✕7 room. This left no room for a bidet, which has a footprint like a toilet’s.

          That adherence to a low grade standard seems to be a thing of the past now, but the few newish houses I’ve been in haven’t had bidets even though the bathrooms are much bigger than a mere 35 sqft.

      • ColdCountry

        Oh, thanks! Do you know how much it hurts to have beer up your nose?

    • RoFaWh

      Sandy Rios is most emphatically NOT “upper-class”, regardless of how much money she has.

      • ColdCountry

        Well, no, and truly high class people don’t behave the way she does, anyway. Perhaps I should have said, “Your imaginary upper-class?”

        • RoFaWh

          How about “an upper class as imagined by someone in a rock-bottom class”?

          I pattern this on a remark someone made during last year’s campaign: Trump’s lifestyle is what a poor person imagines a rich person’s lifestyle is like.

    I suspect, hon, you live in one of those bubbles.

    • RoFaWh

      A good friend in Vancouver blames the mess around bus stops (just as you describe) on millennials.

      I had a millennial fuck bud I had to fire a couple of years ago after I got fed up with him leaving assorted messes behind after each visit. I did not enjoy shaking cigarette butts out of empty beer cans.

  • Richard B

    Sandy Rios is the difficult to look at mouthpiece of the AFA religious hate group. After reading what she just said, I can only conclude her nightmarish face lift has darkened her withered soul and given her amnesia about what Jesus would do and all the many biblical instructions about how his followers are all supposed to treat travelers.

  • Charlie

    As a resident of the DC Metro area I offer this hot mess a suggestion – if you don’t like it here – move…if you don’t live here, then don’t visit…stay in those areas of the country that look the way you want it to look. Whichever you choose, please do us all a favor and choose to shut your miserable, judgmental, sky fairy worshipping trap.

      • HZ81

        Yea, good point. We came out gay without any doctoring. She came out a lady baby and now looks like… that.

  • DuaneBidoux

    There is NOTHING in this world that has made me disbelieve in Christianity as a special thing holding unique truths more than the actual behavior of the Christians around me.

    If you say that something is special it needs to PRODUCE something special. Failure to perform, for me, is a must if it is actually true.

      Matthew 7:18-20:
      “A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit.
      Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them.”
      Seems like there are a lot of bad trees out there.

    So the woman who smells like someone left a can of tune open in the hot sun, is complaining about other people’s hygiene?

    • Tomcat

      That is not a very pretty scratch and sniff picture for sure.

    • Snarkaholic

      Hey, stop making fun of Cod Crotch’s hygiene!

      • juanjo54

        I was simply making an observation.There is a difference between making an descriptive observation and a pejorative insult. Trust me!

    • RoFaWh

      I attended meetings of a local bdsm group for a couple of years. The membership was notable for the many women in it who were seriously overweight, and when one of them walked by it was often a case of whew! from the stench of an untreated yeast infection. I’d never before realized that the jokes about women smelling like fish that’s starting to rot were based in reality.

      Yeast infections of the genitals are often a side effect of diabetes: the sugar in a diabetic’s urine is wonderful food for yeast. I often wondered how many of those women also had untreated Type II diabetes. And this in a country with universal health insurance under a single-payer system.

      • juanjo54

        You cannot fix stupidity and sometimes people have chronic issues as well. Diabetes is a common issue and relatively easily managed but I was shocked not too long ago to see a medical study which showed that Diabetes and Hypertension are two diseases where people most often simply do not comply with the proper medical treatment needed to manage the conditions.

        • RoFaWh

          As a Type II diabetic myself, I can assure you that it is not “easily managed” in any sense of the phrase.

          I was diagnosed over a decade ago and still struggle to keep my blood sugar under control, never mind that I see an endocrinologist periodically.

          • juanjo54

            I was diagnosed over a decade ago myself. I was sent to “diabetes school” run by Kaiser for a day of education etc. Since then combining moderate exercise, some slight changes in diet, and careful observation of the medication schedule and routine monitoring, I have had no problem controlling my blood sugar levels. I am sorry you have had problems with that. I know that there are many factors involved in this process. That said the management is easy if one follows the rules. The fact that there might be outlyers is a sad fact but true. Some of them because they simply do not exercise, do not take their meds on a schedule, eat whatever they wish and otherwise simply ignore the rules they need to follow. My father was like that and ultimately he paid for it. Others however simply do not have a body which is responding as it should.

          • RoFaWh

            One of the big problems for me is that I am a carb addict and fall off the low-carbs wagon with some regularity.

            Edit: “Carb addict” is not a phrase I use lightly.

            I’m becoming more skillful at managing my blood sugar these days, however and my endocrinologist is generally satisfied with my hemoglobin A1C levels.

            For others struggling to control their blood sugar levels, a couple of tips:

            1. Use your glucometer often. (I’m in the fortunate position that my extended medical benefits include prescriptions and my GP is happy to write an Rx for the test strips so they are covered. By the end of the year when I’ve gone over the deductible limit, they’re free or close to it, thanks to 100% coverage at that point.)

            2. When your blood sugar is high or when you have knowingly eaten something carb-rich, take an injection of faster acting insulin. I won’t quote amounts because Canada uses different units for measurng blood sugar than the US does.

            Sometimes it feels like I’m wrestling an octopus.

    Also, has she been to a christian church, I have and i hate smelling them.

  • unsavedheathen

    Or… maybe your corporate friends cut the janitorial staff to the bone in order to make a quarterly report look a tiny bit more attractive to stockholders. Or maybe your Republican-controlled city council nixed the facilities maintenance budget so that taxes on their rich contributors dropped.

    “there are still parts of the country that “still look like America,”

    I lived for a period of time in Chinatown New York. It was one of the most American places I’ve lived.

      The education system was modified specifically to make learning a joyless exercise that makes people reject intelligence instead of emulating it. This is why Republicans are against fair pay for teachers, funding for minority schools and academic freedom. It’s why they don’t like public control of anything or open accountability. It’s why they work so hard to force religion and pseudoscience on children. Those are their future voters: fearful, ignorant and superstitious. It’s their bread and butter.

  • DaveMiller135

    These hate Christians really seem to spend an inordinate amount of time in public restrooms.

  • As someone who is an immigrant and whose parents are also immigrants, screw you, lady.

    By contrast, Rios said, there are still parts of the country that “still look like America”

    …like maybe parts of rural Georgia, with 20-30% (or more…) poverty rates, high teen pregnancy and high school dropout rates, and terrible overall population health and well-being?

  • Johnny Wyeknot

    Perhaps it’s the fault of management for not ensuring restrooms are routinely tended to. And I haven’t seen any problem in D.C. What a butthole.

  • stanhope

    Miss Thing should stay out of men’s rooms with ‘heavy traffic’ and holes in the walls.

    I grew up “southern” and often heard the canard about black people that they smell.

    If you are a poor sharecropper in the South, your “plumbing” is at best an outhouse, you own neither clothes washer nor bathtub, and it’s no surprise if you smell.

    Sandy’s just being another racist asshole in saying what she does.

      It wasn’t until the 1860s that a decent sewer system was installed in London. Up until then, you really didn’t want to go to London in summer. 🙂

    Sandy, you should apologize to Jesus for calling yourself Christian.

    At one time, dirty christians took a lot of abuse because they were too poor to keep clean. Or they were slaves and had no access to soap and water. My how times have changed.

    Los Angeles is the quintessential American city. You just can’t see it from the freeways in Orange County,

    • RoFaWh

      This is brought home by many of the car chase videos out of LA. The runaway often dodges off the freeway system and tries to lose his pursuers in some residential area. (It never works with eye-in-the-sky these days.) Watching such videos on Youtube and then tracking down the situs leads one up and down quiet streets lined with modest one-storey bungalows ― quintessentially American, just as you say.

  • Barry William Teske

    Sandy please!
    Answer the question.
    Can you feel your lips?

  • Hue-Man

    My immigrant ancestors – and yours too for that matter! – must have smelled really bad when they got to North America. The voyage from Ireland during the Potato Famine was 40 days to 3 months. It would have been longer for those who came before. Even my immigrant grandparents arriving around 1900 would have spent 10 days aboard ship and none of my ancestors would have been able to afford anything better than the cheapest fare.

    So now, it’s time for a “smell test” for new immigrants? Something stinks.

    • William

      I can only imagine the ‘aroma’ when my ancestors arrived in Virginia around 1630.

    • Jukesgrrl

      My grandmother was brought here from Budapest as a child. She told me several times her most cherished memory of the experience of crossing the Atlantic in a boat was finally checking into a hotel in New York and getting to take a bath in a tub.

    I’m seeing a lot of well-meaning folks comment below about WHY immigrants might smell bad BUT I refuse to accept the premise that most immigrants smell dirty or don’t know how to use modern amenities. Her statements are just out and out racist. If you notice, she cited three cities with either large Hispanic or Middle Eastern communities. I’m sure she’d never think twice about a group of Caucasian immigrants.
