Sarah Palin Endorses Nativist Birther Tancredo for Governor

November 2, 2010

(ChattahBox Political News)—With the Colorado gubernatorial race tightening between former Republican Congressman Tom Tancredo, running as a third-party candidate for the Constitution Party and Democratic nominee Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper, Sarah Palin threw a last-minute endorsement Tancredo’s way by recording a robo-call message. Tancredo, a virulent nativist and birther conspiracy theorist who has been linked to a neo-confederate hate group, speaking at a June anti-immigration rally in Phoenix, declared that President Obama “refuses to even produce his own birth certificate!” Tancredo also attacked Obama as a greater threat to America than “Russia with the atomic bombs” and al Qaeda terrorists.

The latest polling shows Hickenlooper leading Tancredo by a wide range of five, up to 14 points, but high voter turnout for Republicans could certainly send the odious Tancredo over the finish line. Stranger things have happened, and anything goes in this bizarre election cycle. If that happens, then Colorado voters will get what they deserve.

Why would the former half-term governor of Alaska endorse Tancredo now, especially with all of his baggage? Because if he does win today, she wants to ensure she has his support in the presidential primary. Yes, all signs point to a Sarah Palin 2012 presidential run.

In her taped message, Palin said Tancredo was the “the right man for the job.” Tancredo referred to Palin’s support, as a “glowing endorsement.”

“Tom is the right man for the job and he’ll fight for lower taxes,” Palin said. “He’ll stop growing government and start growing the economy, and we know he’ll continue to work to end illegal immigration.”

Well, that’s interesting because Tancredo has other plans for his stint as governor, if indeed he does manage to win today. What does the birther conspiracy theorist plan to do? He would continue with his anti-immigration and anti-Muslim bigotry, as well as campaign for the impeachment of President Obama. Oh, and he also derides the notion that lawmakers, should you know, actually legislate and make laws, saying it’s “an elitist idea.”

The former Congressman, once called for the bombing of Muslim holy sites in Mecca and Medina. And despite condemnation for his incendiary remarks, Tancredo recently said they were “quite defensible.”

Regarding his birtherism, Tancredo believes Obama’s Hawaii birth announcements are fake. “Anybody can put an article in a newspaper. Just show me your birth certificate,” said Tancredo while appearing on Alan Colmes’ radio show in April.

Tancredo’s complete remarks attacking President Obama at the nativist hate-fest rally in Phoenix:

“I used to think, I used to believe that the greatest threat we ever had to this country — I remember when I was a kid, it used to be Russia with the atomic bombs, and after that it was al Qaeda — but there is somebody who is a greater threat to American liberty today than anybody else I can think of. His name is Barack Obama. He does not see the America that you and I see. He looks at a different place. He looks at the America that you and I love, he looks at the America that the Founders put together, and he says, “I don’t like that, I’m going to create something else.” And he says, when his friend, the President of Mexico is here, he says, “We are not defined by borders.” Well maybe he isn’t defined by borders. Citizenship is not important. I can understand why somebody like Barack Obama would say citizenship is not important since he refuses to even produce his own birth certificate!”

At an April tea party rally in South Carolina, Tancredo whipped up the crowd by saying Obama should be sent back to Kenya. “If his wife says Kenya is his homeland, why don’t we just send him back?

That’s what Sarah Palin is endorsing. Good to know.

Now, if she ever does leave her Fox News media bubble during her presidential primary campaign, her opponents can demand that she “refudiate” the lunatic birther conspiracy theory supported by Tancredo.

    Too bad that she could not help NH get rid of their horrid Governor Lynch. Instead she threw us under the BUS and endorsed Ayotte which was NOT welcome.

    he races were fixed. I KNOW that Tom Tancredo was ahead in the polls, and that even independent columnists were taking note.

    I call on the entire state of Colorado who voted for Tom, to do a ‘diversity dance’ and riot in the streets, because THIS RACE WAS FIXED.

    I call upon the powers that be, to denounce this sham election, charge voter fraud, check EVERY machine, count every ‘pregnant chad’ and do the legal stall routine that every DEMON-crat does, because this was a NO CONTEST vote.

    To the morons on here calling Obama a NWO shill…really? Too funny. Do you dolts even have a clue who is behind that? I’ll give you a hint: Try bankers and the Federal Reserve. Now since when did they EVER support a Democrat? Bush senior didn’t even try to hide the existance of that plan (NWO) and referred to it casually and in speeches. Bush junior did his best to bring us the Amero (which I still believe is coming) and you think the Dems are behind it? Go back to school. Oh wait, you have to be able to read and spell to get in, nevermind.
