Freep Running for Rahm's Seat: "Global Warming is a hoax""Chicago should be cut off from Fed. Funds
Edited on Thu Apr-02-09 01:20 PM by SemiCharmedQuark
This is an update on the nut running for Rahm's seat.

From Progress Illinois:
http://progressillinois.com/2009/4/2/pulido-global-warm...

"During last night's WTTW debate betwen the three candidates in the IL-5 special election on Tuesday, GOP candidate Rosanna "Chicagolady" Pulido not surprisingly laid out a few of her extreme right-wing policy positions. For instance, she said she opposes a cap-and-trade policy because global warming is a "hoax" and a "charade being played upon the American people." On the topic of immigration, she proposed cutting off federal funding to Chicago and Cook County because they provide sanctuary for undocumented immigrants and are purportedly "causing chaos and anarchy." Watch it (full video here):

"This is all par for the course for Pulido, but it's nonetheless interesting to see her spouting these theories in the local mainstream media. It would have been nice to see anchor Carol Marin ask Pulido about her inflammatory online writings, but unfortunately the format didn't seem to allow for it.Meanwhile, in their brief report on the debate this morning, WBEZ chose to air this quote from Pulido:

"I don't even have to push them. They're ready to see a fresh face and do something different. You know, when people tell me that they have voted Democrat all their lives, I just ask them, 'And how's that working for you?'"

"Really? She calls global warming a "hoax," says she would move to cut off federal funding for Chicago, and this is the comment that public radio listeners get to hear?" "



Also from the blog Rosanna Pulida is a Freeper, it seems that three endorsements have been retracted from Pulida.

Here is some text from them:

York Township Trustee Moon Kahn:

"Dear Ms. Rosanna Pulido,

In the tradition of Islamic forgiveness, while I still believe in pardoning you for pronouncing some hateful remarks against Muslims, assuming it might have happened in a moment of rage and ignorance, the continuous revelations of plethora of your provocative statements, which were completely unknown to me until a few days ago, delineate a disturbing mindset....Considering this transgression, which is antithetical to one of the core values and attributes of a leader, I experience deep anguish in continuing my endorsement, which I extended to you earlier without the knowledge of the newly revealed testimonials of yours.

As such, I withdraw my endorsement for you for the Illinois 5th Congressional District seat and request you to remove the endorsement text and my picture off your website."

Chicago News Bench:

"Rosanna,

In spite of knowing that I very publicly pulled my support for your campaign, you maintain a link to my blog on your website at http://www.rosannapulido2009.com / in your Illinois Blogs list. Please remove it immediately. For your reference, you have it listed (incorrectly) as Rogers Park Bench."

RightNotWrong.com:

"Some of you may have recently heard about the NBC 5 news report about Rosanna Pulido and her anonymous comments under the name Chicagolady on the Free Republic conservative message site. In light of the recent development of what those comments actually were, I cannot in good conscience back Ms. Pulido or her campaign. As much as I would like to see a Republican elected from the 5th during this special election, I dont believe it should be someone marred by questionable activities in online forums. This is not a disagreement with what stance on the core conservative issues she has, but more of how she portrayed some of them."

1. This woman really wants to lose..
I really think she wants to lose...the repug party should have noticed how badly Keyes lost (70%-27%) and chose someone opposite of him instead of just as whacky...

2. I think she speaks what other repugs want to say but
know there will be true repulsion. Even the Repugs got to admit she is hateful.

3. Let's hope more of them become as open and vocal

The more they show their true colors, the less support they receive.

5. I looked Rosanna Pulido up. What a piece of fucking work.
Rosanna Pulido is a Mexican-American freeper (yes, she has an FR account) who is so anti-immigration she founded the Illinois Minutemen. There's so many things wrong here I don't know where to start.
