As Patrick Cleburne notes below, Sharron Angle has run a hard-hitting ad about Harry Reid and illegals, which has pictures of Hispanic criminals. People are arguing this is racist, although as the Willie Horton case, they`re missing the point. The ads are not aimed at illegal immigrant gangsters,(mostly Mexicans, yes) but at Harry Reid, who is of Scottish descent, and who is enabling said gangsters to break into the United States. Here`s the ad, and Joy Behar`s reaction:
JOY BEHAR: You know what I`d like to see her do? I`d like to see her do this ad in the south Bronx. Come here, bitch! Come to New York and do it.
What`s in the South Bronx? Hispanics. What would they do if Sharron Angle offended them? Well, I suppose five of them could drag her into a shed and rape her, as happened to a woman in Flushing Meadows Park, but that would sort of prove her point, wouldn`t it?
No, that`s probably not quite what Behar wants, but...her basic point is that the South Bronx is now occupied by Hispanics (Behar herself is an Italian-American) and therefore it wouldn`t be safe for Angle to do this ad in the South Bronx. Right, and that`s Angle`s point.
