"Jesse Helms is back! And this time he's black." That's Winston-Salem city councilman Vernon Robinson's campaign slogan as one of eight GOP candidates in the July 20 primary for North Carolina's 5th Congressional District.
Pretty inoffensive, though, compared to the radio ad he's running:
ANNOUNCER NO. 1: Vernon Robinson, conservative. The aliens are here, but they didn't come in a spaceship. They came across our unguarded Mexican border by the millions -- illegally.The ad's come under fire, not for it's extreme offensiveness but for the fact that the required disclosure at the end - "This ad was paid for by Robinson for Congress." - is in Spanish.
They've filled our criminal courtrooms and invaded our school. They sponge off the American taxpayer by clogging our welfare lines and our hospital emergency rooms. They've even taken over the DMV. These aliens commit heinous crimes against us, like Maximiliano Esparza, who raped a nun and strangled her with her own rosary -- illegally.
They commit crimes but won't commit to learn our language. You walk into a McDonald's restaurant to order a Big Mac and find to your horror that the employees don't speak English -- illegals. You may be in the heart of America, but you feel as though you are in the Twilight Zone.
Vernon Robinson will secure our borders, cut off the welfare payments and once and for all make English our official language. Press one for English? No. Vote Vernon Robinson for English.
VERNON ROBINSON: I'm Vernon Robinson, and I approve this message.
ANNOUNCER NO. 2: Yo Gringo! Este episodio de Twilight Zone era pagado para Robinson por congreso.
When is somebody going to decide WE need a regime change and liberate us?
