John McCain, Russell Pearce, Michelle Obama, Jan Brewer Pimp-Slapped in New Dennis Gilman Video
Everyone gets a piece of hand sandwich in Dennis Gilman's new YouTube video on the hypocrisy of our political leaders over SB 1070 and the plight of the 12 million undocumented in this country.
This time Gilman spares no one on the left or the right. Everyone from John McCain and Jan Brewer to Gabby Giffords and Michelle Obama receives their punishment in due course.
Gilman also contrasts the hysteria over the killing of Arizona rancher Rob Krentz to the relative silence of politicians over the 2009 slayings of Brisenia Flores and her father Raul in a home invasion robbery gone bad in Arivaca -- one allegedly led by minutewoman Shawna Forde.
Krentz's death was exploited by nativists to pass SB 1070, whereas the Flores murders were never commented upon by that same tribe. For good reason. Many of them knew Forde, and had welcomed her as one of them.
