Pearce’s hypocrisy was confirmed today when I received a copy of documents filed by Tom Tancredo the ex Colorado congressman and chairman of Team America PAC. Tancredo has entered the “stop the Pearce recall efforts” by forming a committee to oppose the recall. Essentially a money making machine that will fight tooth and nail alongside Pearce to allow his political survival. Know this, Tancredo is a true extremist. He has attended Tea Party rallies in Arizona in the past and has shared the stage with his controversial friend Russell Pearce.
The hypocrisy comes in watching Stan Barnes the ex legislator and official Pearce arse kisser on Sunday Square Off the other day complaining about this Pearce recall being influenced by outside sources, I knew it wouldn’t be long before the dirty laundry would be aired regarding Pearce’s true backing. Well here it is Monday and we have a copy of the documents filed by Tancredo with the Arizona Secretary of State. Well if that isn’t the pot calling the kettle black!
Tancredo’s nativism and extremism is founded in part by his comments that have ranged from claiming the Pope wants to welcome illegal immigrants to boost church membership to claiming that Miami is becoming a third world country. He is an ardent border wall supporter like Pearce and has even gone so far as to display his anger at Mayors in U.S. border cities that didn’t want the border affecting their relationship with Mexico by stating that the border should then be built North of those cities, to keep those cities out of the United States.
In 2010 Tancredo said this:
In April, during the keynote address at a Tea Party rally in South Carolina, Tancredo told a crowd that we’re “going to have to pray that we can hold on to this country.” And added this about the president: “If his wife says Kenya is his homeland, why don’t we just send him back?”
I’m sure we’ll see many more Tancredo types surface and join up with the gang of xenophobes, nativists, racists and those that call themselves true patriots just trying to do what’s right for Arizona and America.
Can someone hand me my popcorn. This movie plays like something out of the old days. Let’s see, who’s going to play Bull Connor?
