Just how crazy is Sharron Angle? (10) -- Blame Canada edition

(For more craziness from Sharron Angle, click here and scroll down through the previous entries in this ongoing series, along with many other posts detailing her extremism.)

Angle continues to outdo herself. The Las Vegas Sun's Jon Ralston has the latest -- and it's a doozy of a whopper:

If this isn't Sharron Angle, the great revisionist historian, in a nutshell, I'm not sure what is.

In the video clip at right [ed. note: click on the link above to see the clip], you not only can see the GOP U.S. Senate nominee telling a group of Hispanic children at Rancho High School that images of Latinos in her ad that are clearly Latinos may not be. Indeed, the images in the ad are of Hispanics in Mexico, as The Washington Post and others have pointed out. And it is no mystery what race they are, as she claims.


But then she takes it far -- even for her -- by talking about how the real problem is the northern border! Yes, she says it. Listen and watch. So maybe those threatening kids are about to cross the Ambassador Bridge into Detroit for a tryout with the Red Wings?

Here's what she said:

Question: Why is it that in all of your commercials you have the image of Latinos? What do you see when you hear, and I quote, "illegal aliens"?

Angle: I think that you're misinterpreting those commercials. I'm not sure that those are Latinos in that commercial. What it is, is a fence and there are people coming across that fence. What we know is that our northern border is where the terrorists came through. That's the most porous border that we have. We cannot allow terrorists; we cannot allow anyone to come across our border if we don't know why they're coming. So we have to secure all of our borders and that's what that was about, is border security. Not just our southern border, but our coastal border and our northern border.

That's right, apparently we Canadians are the problem. (I'm a Canadian, but most of the other bloggers here are American.)

We're all just swarming across that fence, don't you know. There is a fence between our two countries, isn't there? I mean, because Angle says we're "misinterpretating those commercials." So it must be Canadians.

But it's not just our hockey players. Think about all the great Canadian comedians who terrorize America's airwaves. (Where exactly would SNL have been without Canadians? Nowhere. Thanks, Lorne Michaels. Seriously, we've done a lot for comedy in America, Michaels more than anyone else.)

Or maybe it's Shania Twain who's the problem.

Or those fine actors, William Shatner and Keanu Reeves.

Or James Cameron, who has invaded the world with those pieces of crap known as Titanic and Avatar.

Oh wait. I know...

Celine Dion, perhaps our most embarrassing export. (Quebec, which made her, can have her.) She terrorized Las Vegas for years. We can't blame Angle for seeing her as far worse than anything coming in from Mexico, can we?
