Here is the fourteenth article in our Republicans on Parade series, featuring individuals who personify what the Republican Party has become. Today’s honoree is Ken Crow, for the depth of the Republican racism he displays in his opposition to immigration reform. He actually claimed genetic superiority!
The Nation’s George Zernick was at Monday’s anti-immigrant rally organized by the nativist front group Black American Leadership Alliance, and managed to catch a video of Tea Party Community co-founder Ken Crow praising Americans’ “incredible DNA” and insisting, “You cannot breed Secretariat to a donkey and expect to win the Kentucky Derby.”
Today, the Center for Immigration Studies posted a full video of Crow’s speech, and it turns out that the Secretariat/donkey analogy was just the beginning of his racist talking points. After fretting about the impact of immigrants on American “bloodlines,” Crow points to Arlington National Cemetery and says, “You’ve got the breeding, you’ve got the DNA, you’ve got the patriotism and you’ve got the sacrifice. And I’ll be damned if I’m going to give my country up to a bunch of people who do not deserve to be here.”

Here’s that video.
I don’t doubt that he loves his DNA, since it appears that it is the product of extensive inbreeding. Just in case Republicans try to distance themselves, by claiming he isn’t a real Republican, he started the Tea Party Community, an even worse alternative to Facebook.
