John McCain’s Arizona: Busted for ‘Listening to Mexican Music’

May 5, 2010

(ChattahBox)—A new radio ad targeting the former maverick Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), for his support of the state’s harsh anti-immigration law that institutionalizes racial profiling of Latinos, hit the airwaves on Cinco de Mayo. The biting ad, created by the Democratically funded Americans for America PAC is entitled, “In John McCain’s Arizona students arrested for partying at Cinco de Mayo happy hour.”

The ad opens with sounds of college kids partying on Cinco de Mayo, when the merrymaking is interrupted by the Arizona State Police, to arrest them for being illegal immigrants:

“We have reasonable suspicion to believe you’re illegal aliens,” the cops say to the surprised students. “You are listening to Mexican music, drinking Mexican drinks, and speaking Spanish.”

The ad’s voice over demands that Sen. McCain oppose the draconian anti-immigration law:

“This is no joke to your classmates who are now criminal suspects just for being Latino. Tell Sen. John McCain to oppose SB1070 now.”

    McCain doesn’t support SB 1070. He has not publicly expressed support for the law and the media has failed to ask him about it.

    As for me, I’m supporting JD Hayworth in his challenge against John McCain. I want someone who really does support SB 1070 which essentially is the Arizona version of the federal law.

    In fact, I’m going to give JD Hayworth money and so should you!

    If Pancho Villa were still alive, I’d give money to him.
