Century of the Common Iowan: Some more Crazy Comments from Congressman in Western Iowa

Excerpted from this post at Century of the Common Iowan
... Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-CO) was in Council Bluffs campaigning for President on Saturday. Tancredo's focus is on illegal immigration. Unfortanately, Tancredo fails to discuss the cause of the immigration problem, instead Tancredo, like King, focuses on hate-filled remarks.Here are three examples from his stop in Iowa over the weekend... "Illegal immigration has diluted the country's patriotism." and referred to immigrants as a cult... "We have a cult of multiculturalism. This is what permeates our society," he said. Immigrants who come to the United States but refuse to assimilate by learning the language and following the laws water down what it means to be an American. and to top it off Tancredo had this to say... "It's a cultural, political, linguistic tower of Babel." Doesn't Tancredo realize that the vast majority of Americans are immigrants to this nation? Maybe he needs to read the story of the first Thanksgiving again.
