Sharron Angle to Hispanic Kids: ‘I’m Not Sure Those Are Latinos’ in Her Campaign Ad
Sharron Angle proved yesterday that she’ll lie shamelessly to anyone, telling a group of Hispanic high school students that those images of threatening Latinos in her campaign ad may not be Latinos at all.
Then she went on to make an even more outrageous claim, in a campaign dedicated to race-baiting and fear mongering about “illegal aliens.” She told the Hispanic students that the real problem is our border with Canada.
Jaw-dropping dishonesty and pandering from one of the GOP’s top John Birch Society-affiliated crazy ladies.
Question: Why is it that in all of your commercials you have the image of Latinos? What do you see when you hear, and I quote, “illegal aliens?”
Angle: I think that you’re misinterpreting those commercials. I’m not sure that those are Latinos in that commercial. What it is, is a fence and there are people coming across that fence. What we know is that our northern border is where the terrorists came through. That’s the most porous border that we have. We cannot allow terrorists; we cannot allow anyone to come across our border if we don’t know why they’re coming. So we have to secure all of our borders and that’s what that was about, is border security. Not just our southern border, but our coastal border and our northern border.
Here’s the image that Angle says she’s “not sure” depicts Latinos.
