Those opposing illegal immigration are "white supremacists"

So says Katrina Vanden Heuvel, demented magazine of the leftist rag called The Nation. Proving once again that liberals have no idea what normal America thinks, she observes the following:
Nation magazine publisher Katrina Vanden Heuvel said Sunday that illegal immigration foe, Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colo., is animated by a "white supremacist" philosophy - and insisted that illegals are "the backbone of this country."

Following the Colorado Republican on ABC's "This Week," Vanden Heuvel told host George Stephanopoulos:

"Tancredo, on your show today - he looked pleasant. But I will say that what's happened in our country is that some of the white supremacist thinking that used to be represented by David Duke has been absorbed by people like Tancredo."

Vanden Heuvel called the House immigration reform bill backed by Tancredo "very dangerous," "draconian" and "un-American," before praising the illegal population:

"Undocumented immigrants are the backbone of this economy," she told "This Week." "They do the suburban lawns in this country. They take care of the kids. The economy in this country would be in real trouble [without illegal immigrants.]"
Vanden Heuvel predicted that "2006 will be the year of immigrants rising" before adding, "the demonization of immigrants is going to lead to ripping apart the Republican Party."

Contrary to Vanden Heuvel's claim, poll after poll on illegal immigration shows that more than two-thirds of Americans favor tougher border enforement.
That's the codeword that leftists like to use for illegal immigrants: "undocumented immigrants." "Undocumented" sounds more innocuous that the truth: lawbreakers. Expecting any person, immigrant or otherwise, legal or illegal, to observe the law is apparently a "white supremacist" expectation.

Plus, illegal aliens are "the backbone of the economy"? This will no doubt come as a surprise to the 95%+ of people in this country who apparently are irrelevant to the economy. No wonder everyone thinks liberals are functional illiterates when it comes to economic matters!

Leave it to the left to screw something else up, as usual. Nothing says "We're ready to take control in D.C. in November!" quite like ignoring 2/3 of the country on illegal immigration, all for a little "Hispandering" and posturing. Nice job, Katrina! See you in November!
