Tea Party Leader Compares Immigration to the Alamo, Alien Invasion in Independence Day
The Nation’s George Zernick was at Monday’s anti-immigrant rally organized by the nativist front group Black American Leadership Alliance, and managed to catch a video of Tea Party Community co-founder Ken Crow praising Americans’ “incredible DNA” and insisting, “You cannot breed Secretariat to a donkey and expect to win the Kentucky Derby.”
Today, the Center for Immigration Studies posted a full video of Crow’s speech, and it turns out that the Secretariat/donkey analogy was just the beginning of his racist talking points. After fretting about the impact of immigrants on American “bloodlines,” Crow points to Arlington National Cemetery and says, “You’ve got the breeding, you’ve got the DNA, you’ve got the patriotism and you’ve got the sacrifice. And I’ll be damned if I’m going to give my country up to a bunch of people who do not deserve to be here.”
He then goes on to compare immigrants to invading space aliens, quoting from Bill Pullman’s famous speech in the movie Independence Day, and to equate anti-immigrant Tea Party activists to Texan forces at the Alamo.
