Tancredo talk too offensive? Too bad, says congressman
"Many critics of my statements have characterized them as 'offensive,' and indeed they may have offended some," writes Tancredo in a guest commentary in the Denver Post. "But in this battle against fundamentalist Islam, I am hardly preoccupied with political correctness, or who may or may not be offended. Indeed, al-Qaida cares little if the Western world is 'offended' by televised images of hostages beheaded in Iraq, subway bombings in London, train attacks in Madrid, or Americans jumping to their death from the Twin Towers as they collapsed."
No apologies. This is so refreshing it makes me smile just reading it. He is saying what the average American is thinking.
This is in contradistinction to the "average" person that the media usually uses for quotes: an illegal alien homosexual who is attending a war protest. Really, FOX12 just asked two "average" guys about using civilians to augment the border patrol and they were both against it. Using flawless logic like "the tighter you grip the more slip through, you make more want to come here illegally" and "as long as we are all aware of our surroundings... something something that made no sense and didn't deal with the issue at all."
To their credit they did highlight an illegal alien who was deported twice last year and was busted just today with almost a pound of meth. No word on whether or not the Democrats and PCUN will condemn the report as racist.
