Over the Top Tom

Filed under: American-Politics, Extremism — Tags: , — Imam Mahdi Bray @ 7:51 pm

Congressman Tom Tancredo, the man who once claimed that the United States should “bomb Mecca” and has led a campaign of demonizing,  not only against undocumented workers, but immigrants in general, has now released a vile and inflammatory video that is an attack on all immigrants and all Muslims.

 

While showing immigrants crossing the border, the ad mixed in footage of the carnage of terrorist attacks in London and states that immigrants are not only coming to take your jobs but want to kill you as well.

 

This over the top rhetoric comes from a desperate candidate at the bottom of the polls seeking to gain popularity by scaring Americans into voting for him through xenophobic and outrageous videos. I think the plans of Tancredo and his words speak for themselves and will backfire. Its time that the Rocky Mountain High Congressman from Colorado realizes that the Karl Rove Playbook of Fear and Smear is no longer working. To paraphrase President Franklin Roosevelt “the only thing we have to fear”… is more loose cannons like Congressman Tancredo with his bogeyman xenophobia.
