Landham the racist dung-shoveler

Landham reiterates anti-Arab sentiment on talk show:  'I said no Arabs into this country'Evidently unrepentant after his initial controversial comments were first printed in the Louisville Courier-Journal, Libertarian Senate candidate Sonny Landham, of Ashland, elaborated on his initial labelling of Arabs as "camel dung-shovelers" and lauded early twentieth-century labor leaders during a Wednesday appearance on an internet talk radio program.

"I'm a pro-American all the way. The Arabs, the camel dung-shovelers, the camel jockeys--whichever you want to call 'em--are terrorists," Landham said on the Weekly Filibuster talk show, in response to an inquiry about his earlier statements. "And they are doing a terrorist act on this country with the high gas prices. They're about to wreck this economy, not only our economy, but the world economy."
Comment:  Apparently Landham hit his head once too often while playing a tough guy in movies. Here's all the evidence you need that Natives can be as stupid and ignorant as anyone else.

How does Landham's desire to ban Arabs square with his libertarian beliefs? Answer:  It doesn't. If he were a true libertarian rather than a racist reactionary, he'd opposed government attempts to define "good" and "bad" immigrants.

Writerfella here --
While writerfella finds 'Sonny' Landham's remarks both disturbing and self-revealing, he does admit that Landham also reveals that 'racial profiling' is not confined to fans, faculty, alumni, and graduates of Police State University...
