Unfathomable atrocity: Today we read that Islamic terrorists have crucified a Catholic priest in Yemen over Easter weekend
Former Republican Congressman and presidential candidate Tom Tancredo is among the few to credit with bringing the issue of illegal immigration to the forefront back when it was barely a blip on the national radar. Hearing him passionately address the invasion a couple of decades ago provided the prominence needed to thrust it into public consciousness and ultimately drive the 2016 presidential debate.
Placement of the word “former” is not in error. Last October the onetime Republican Congressman had his fill of the Grand Old Party under whose banner he had run and been elected from 1999 to 2009. His rationale for leaving was posted on Breitbart. Tancredo summed up his decision with these thoughts although his complete commentary is exceedingly enlightening.
- The Republican establishment does not want to control spending.
- It does not want to secure the borders or enforce immigration laws.
- It does not care about American sovereignty.
- It has no interest in ending the unaccountable and corrupt culture that has become a hallmark of official Washington.
As a presidential candidate Tom Tancredo, who built his campaign on stopping illegal immigration, boycotted the Dec. 9, 2007 Univision televised debate at the University of Miami because it was being broadcast in Spanish. The rest of the pack attended, including John McCain.
Now Tom Tancredo has written a blunt commentary, which we highly recommend, titled, The ISIS Barbarians Are Already Inside our Gates.
“ It is Islam’s basic worldview that inspires hatred of the West, not grievances against U.S. foreign policy or lack of economic opportunity in Muslim societies. The Muslim Brotherhood was founded in 1928, not 1988, decades before any American soldier set foot in Kuwait. Why then is it “Islamophobic” to speak the truth about Islam’s hostility to Western values?” Tancredo asks. “Self-censorship is the main obstacle to effective steps to halt ISIS in its tracks, and people who preach such nonsense — and the Quislings who tolerate it — are aiding ISIS and need to be called out for it.”
Tom Tancredo effectively calls them out — loud and clear.
