Pearce e-mail draws apology (AZ Rep's Racist Email)
A week after State Rep. Russell Pearce drew fire for immigration remarks widely criticized as racially insensitive, the Mesa Republican sent an e-mail to supporters in which he copied an article from a White separatist group and a link to that group's Web site.

<snip>

The article from the Web site of the National Alliance was pasted on the bottom of an e-mail Pearce sent to supporters slamming The Arizona Republic for its stories on his radio comments last month about a 1950s federal program called "Operation Wetback."

The article, titled "Who Rules America? The Alien Grip on Our News and Entertainment Media Must Be Broken," criticized the media for promoting multiculturalism and racial equality, for portraying "any racially conscious White Person" as a bigot and for presenting the Jewish Holocaust as fact.

The media present a "single view of the world, a world in which every voice proclaims the equality of the races, the inerrant nature of the Jewish 'Holocaust' tale, the wickedness of attempting to halt the flood of non-White aliens pouring across our borders, the danger of permitting citizens to keep and bear arms, the moral equivalence of all sexual orientations, and the desirability of a 'pluralistic,' cosmopolitan society rather than a homogeneous, White one," the article says. The National Alliance, a group that advocates the creation of a White-only area of the United States, promotes its Web site as "News for White People {ellipsis} By White People."

2. Isn't this what they on the R side call a 'disconnect'?

3. So he sent it out without reading it. One wonders if he votes the same way
or for that matter, what else he makes decisions on without having all, or even some, of the facts.

Reprinting the ramblings of the organization headed by the author of "The Turner Diaries".

6. He read and linked to a hate site but didn't know what they were about?
Suuuure.

He's sorry for the controversy he caused, not for what he did.
