On last night's 9 p.m. broadcast, Fox Chicago featured an interview with Illinois Minutemen Project Director Rosanna Pulido. At one point in the discussion, anchor Jeff Goldblatt highlighted a press conference yesterday in which local religous leaders denounced Arizona's draconian new immigration law. After watching a clip of Father Larry Dowling saying that the legislation "has its roots in white supremacist ideology," Pulido responded: "It's name-calling. What the left only knows how to do is name-call." Watch it (full video here):
It's kind of amazing to hear Pulido decry "name-calling" considering that, in comments posted to the right-wing Free Republic website under the pseudonym "chicagolady," she called gays "fudge packers" and repeatedly referred to Barack Obama as "Osama." And while we're on the topic of white supremacy, she once described Mexicans as the new "Klu Klux Klan with a tan."
Why this woman gets airtime on our local network stations is beyond me.
