Why would Ed Schultz invite Tom Tancredo onto his show — a known anti-immigration wingnut, and a guy who doesn’t hold any position of authority right now — to comment on Judge Sotomayor?
Of course Tancredo is going to say something ridiculous, like:
I’m telling you she appears to be a racist. She said things that are racist in any other context. That’s exactly how we would portray it and there’s no one who would get on the Supreme Court saying a thing like that except for a Hispanic woman and you’re going to say it doesn’t matter!
Ah-ha! I get it. I know why. Ed Schultz, I’m sorry I doubted you.
Invite a Republican onto television who will blurt out the race-baiting and Southern Strategy nonsense that fuels the party, thus exposing its ugliness to the viewing public. Excellent.
Putting Tom Tancredo front and center against Sotomayor must be the Obama administration’s dream come true.
His form of racism is an affront to all decency. As I’ve said before, I do not speak Italian because of the racism my grandparents endured when they came to America. He’s Italian and he should be ashamed of himself.
As a fellow Italian, I hate to say it but Italians are often really, really racist.
