Bleeding Heartland: Make up your mind, Christian Fong

Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland

Are you going to be the GOP's hopeful, inclusive-talking guy, or are you going to do stuff like this? "Chinese communists swept to power in the last century without mentioning plans to nationalize businesses or institute forced abortions, Republican gubernatorial candidate Christian Fong told supporters of the Iowa Minuteman Civil Defense Corps on Saturday." ... The Minutemen are hardly a significant movement in Iowa, but that doesn't make it ok for mainstream Republicans to fuel paranoid fantasies about the Obama administration. Fong did tell the Minutemen that "tighter borders and the need to learn English must be tempered with open arms for those (immigrants) who use proper channels, he said."
