Protester: Send illegal aliens home ‘with a bullet in the head’
Fresh off the polarizing campaign against the nomination of Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, which saw GOP figures like Tom Tancredo accusing the judge of being a Latina racist and a member of a Latino KKK, the teabagger health reform protests are beginning to regularly feature anti-illegal immigrant rants. Protesters have gone from objecting to a national health care plan to wanting to shoot illegal immigrants in the head — and then deport them.
ConsiderThisNews has the video of protesters in New Hampshire, expressing their anger at President Obama. This is the highlight:
“We don’t need illegals,” says a white-bearded protester into his megaphone. “Send ‘em all back. Send ‘em back with a bullet in the head the second time.”
The man goes on to cite Thomas Jefferson, saying “Read what Jefferson said about the Tree of Liberty — it’s coming, baby.”
What Jefferson actually said was: “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”
It’s getting ugly.
