Hispanic, Islamic Groups Want Tancredo Out
By STEVEN K. PAULSON
Associated Press Writer
Hispanic and Islamic groups called on Rep. Tom Tancredo to resign Monday, saying he has embarrassed Colorado by suggesting bombing Islamic holy sites if terrorists launch a nuclear attack on the U.S.
They also criticized the GOP congressman's staunch advocacy of tougher immigration controls.
"Enough is enough. We're here to say 'Stop,'" Hispanic activist Manolo Gonzalez-Estay told a crowd of about 200 at the state Capitol.
Abdur-Rahim Ali, imam of a Muslim shrine in Denver, said Tancredo's statement that "you could take out" Islamic holy sites in a retaliatory attack was unacceptable.
"What would happen if a prominent Muslim made that statement about Catholic holy places like the Vatican?" asked Ali.
Tancredo was traveling and unavailable for comment. His spokesman, Will Adams, said the four-term congressman has no intention of apologizing or resigning.
"They are a lot more upset about what he stands for, our nation's security and border policy, than anything else," Adams said.
Birds of a feather?
Guess they'll just have to vote him out but I wish them rotsa ruck.
"They are a lot more upset about what he (Tom Tancredo) stands for, our nation's security and border policy, than anything else," Adams said.
Last I checked, that happens just about every day.
I'm pretty sure they do this on almost a daily basis.
Tell them to go to HELL. That's where they belong.
I think it was a stupid thing for Tancredo to say...
but, these people should speak up about what the terrorists in their homelands are doing...and quit worrying about what a politician hear says so much...
Hm...it is funny, isn't it, how angry the Muslims get about a congressman's comment, than seeing hundreds of their fellow Muslims getting blown to smithereens on the streets of Iraq..
That is embarrassing. Why would anyone suggest limiting a nuclear response to Islamic Holy sites? I say nuke the whole damn place!
I agree, stop coming into our country illegally, and stop the Islamo-fascism.
Everyone would ignore it, of course ... except the feminists, pro-abortionists, and "gay-rights" nutcases, who would hold parades in support.
Anyone who doesn't like Tancredo, for any reason, is welcome to vote for his opponent in November.
These anti-American organizations recognize a worthy foe.
That was my thought too.
Well, Manolo, we will control our border whether you like it
or not. Tough tortillas.
Well, Abdur, the followers of your so-called "prophet"
have already declared war on us. Guess we're supposed
to say, "Thank you sir, may I have another". Go find
a nice camel to *ump.
Is this a great endorsement for Tancredo or what?
It's a big plus for a politician to be opposed by Islamicists in this day and age.
