More backlash for KS Rep.'s feral hog, shoot the immigrants comment
How can it be a joke to suggest killing immigrants from helicopters?

This is exactly what Kansas Representative Virgil Peck said.

Words like these are what incite hate crimes. We have seen it already all across the country.

And today, as Latinos, we represent the highest number of victims of hate crimes in the United States.

Who could defend these words?

Sadly, three Kansas Representatives all Latinos all Republicans: Mario Goico, Reynaldo Mesa and Ramon Gonzalez.

The saying still holds true: Tell me who you run with, and Ill tell you who you are.

Join our campaign demanding that Goico, Mesa and Gonzales ask Peck to resign. Send a text message to 30644 with the word RENUNCIA (RESIGN).

Dont let them talk for you.

Tell Goico, Mesa, and Gonzales that Pecks words have not been forgotten nor forgiven. Send a text message to 30644 with the word RENUNCIA (RESIGN)..

4. I'm well aware it is Spanish but the message is for Peck who
I assume speaks English.

5. It's from a radio ad
and it is directed at anyone who is concerned about Peck's comments.

2. Vote all the bastards out. Elect people that you can trust and who
deserve your trust.
