Wingnut Rating : 90
He's called President Obama "...the greatest threat to the United States today, the greatest threat to our liberty, the greatest threat to the Constitution of the United States, the greatest threat to our way of life; everything we believe in"—and called for his impeachment. He's called Miami "a third-world country," called Justice Sotomayor "racist," and called La Raza "a Latino KKK without the hoods or the nooses." He's called for a civic literacy text for voting and voted against the Voting Rights Act in Congress. He supports a federal amendment to the Constitution to ban gay marriage and looks to the overturning of
Roe v. Wade as "the greatest day in this country's history." And he's called for "taking out" Mecca or Medina in the event of a terrorist attack, spurring the Bush administration's State Department to call his comments "just absolutely crazy." And I haven't even gotten to immigration, where Tancredo has established himself as the foremost far-right anti-illegal immigrant activist/demagogue who has recently served in the U.S. Congress. Presumably these positions are assets for his supporters, but if Tom Tancredo were to be elected governor of Colorado, it would be a disaster for the great state.
