Sharron Angle Wants White Voters to Fear Criminal Brown People (Video)
October 26, 2010
(ChattahBox Political News)–In a new low, even by the marginal standards of Sharron Angle’s campaign, the deranged tea party senatorial candidate from Nevada is out with yet another odious racially charged and bigoted campaign ad. She was forced to take down her last anti-Latino scary illegal aliens ad when it was discovered she had used a stock Getty image of Mexican men IN Mexico, without permission. Now Angle is returning to her fearmongering ways, depicting scary looking Latino men who are threatening white people. Angle’s dog whistle message to racists couldn’t be clearer. She is telling voters she will protect people like herself from the wave of illegal brown people crossing our borders to terrorize and steal things from white people.
When she was asked to explain the racist imagery in her previous ad, she claimed that the men in the ad didn’t look Hispanic. And she shamelessly tried to claim the ad was intended to warn voters of the threat of terrorists crossing the Canadian border. Well, no one bought that bizarre explanation.
While addressing a group of Hispanic teens, Angle even tried to drive her bigoted point home by telling the teens that some of them appeared Asian.
“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, said Angle.
Now Angel has discovered a fresh batch of scary and menacing-looking images of Latino men to incite fear and racism among Nevadan voters.
The new ad depicts all Latinos as violent criminals and white people as their victims. Be afraid, be very afraid!
“Waves of illegal aliens streaming across our border. Joining violent gangs. Forcing families to live in fear.”
“And what’s Harry Reid doing about it? Voting to give illegal aliens social security benefits, tax breaks and college tuition. Voting against declaring English our national language twice. And even siding with Obama and the president of Mexico to block Arizona’s tough new immigration law Harry Reid, it’s clear whose side he’s on and it’s not yours.”
Shameful, despicable racist fearmongering. Will the far right-wing Bircher advocate Second Amendment remedies next, to deal with the scary brown people menace?
