Former GOP Presidential Candidate Tom Tancredo to Address White Supremacists

What right wing racism?
Wingnuts • Views: 15,731

We’ve been watching in horror since the beginning of the Obama administration as the right wing’s buried racism came bursting out to the surface, loud and proud. And now, one of the GOP’s candidates for President, Tom Tancredo, who’s long been associated with extreme right wing groups, has completely stopped even his token attempts to conceal his true agenda, and will give a speech to one of the most virulent racist organizations still operating in the United States: Former Congressman Tancredo to Address White Supremacists.

Tom Tancredo has no more secrets.

The former Republican congressman from Colorado, known for his biting anti-immigration rhetoric and campaign ads suggesting Latino immigrants are rapists and drug dealers, is scheduled to be the luncheon speaker at next month’s annual conference for the white supremacist Council of Conservative Citizens (CCC). The theme of the conference? “Multiculturalism – the Death of America.”

Sharing the dais with Tancredo will be a rogue’s gallery of the racist right, including James Edwards, who hosts the white nationalist Political Cesspool radio show; Don Black, the former Klansman best known for creating stormfront.org, the first major Internet hate site; and Leonard Wilson, a longtime segregationist and Alabama commander for the Sons of Confederate Veterans, a neo-Confederate group that, like Tancredo, staunchly opposes immigration.

For those who have watched Tancredo go through endless contortions to distance himself from his racist friends, speaking at a CCC conference seems to be a turning point. The time has passed to apologize for the company he keeps.

UPDATE at 6/21/12 1:19:54 pm

Tancredo’s PAC now says he’s not going to speak, despite being advertised in the CCC newsletter.
