Russell Pearce Preaches Hate on Ban Amnesty Now Radio Show

The high-priest of Hispanic-hatin', now flapping his lips on the AM dial...

Xenophobia, self-adulation and delusion are just some of the repulsive dishes offered at ex-state Senate President Russell Pearce's radio cafeteria of hate, which airs Tuesdays and Mondays at 7 p.m. on Phoenix's KFNX 1100 AM.

The disgraced Mesa pol, who lost by 12 points to now-state Senator Jerry Lewis in a historic recall election in Legislative District 18 last year, recently scored a gig as president of the nativist-shill organization Ban Amnesty Now

With it came the one-hour show sponsored by BAN, formerly hosted by BAN's founder, erstwhile Arizona GOP executive director Sean McCaffrey.

I tuned in to Tuesday's show, expecting the worst, and I was not disappointed. Pearce ranted and fumed about illegal immigration, interrupting his tirades occasionally to take calls from listeners who were full of hero-worship for the corrupt, hate-filled first vice-chair of the state Republican Party.

Latinos were, of course, completely demonized as a criminal element. For instance, in denouncing the National Council of La Raza, the most influential Latino organization in the United States, Pearce labeled it a "crime-promoting organized crime syndicate."

The undocumented did not fare any better. Pearce blasted migrants crossing the southern border as a security threat unrivaled by any other.

"Right now, the greatest threat to America is not Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan," he growled at one point. "It's what's coming across that border...Gangbangers. Child molesters. Drug smugglers. Human smugglers."

When a caller offered his impression that most illegal immigrants here in the U.S. hate Caucasians, Pearce dismissed the entire population as one belonging behind bars.

"They've started out as lawbreakers," Pearce told the man. "They're criminals. They have violated our laws, they've trespassed in our nation. And they have attitudes."

It's obvious that, at the centennial celebration, the people of Arizona should rejoice at what has become the state's leading commodity............Hate and Intolerance.

Really, in your dreams. Your thinking is inverted. It is illegal foreign nationals, that arrogantly enter this nation, WITHOUT PERMISSION, that then commit I.D. Fraud, false paperwork claims, drive without a right to, and on and on, because when you enter a nation illegally, and it doesn't really matter what nation, you must continue to add crime onto crime in order to live there. And, newsflash, it doesn't require a Russel Pearce to reference to make this claim TRUE. Pearce has nothing to do with it.

bobby, you are aware of how the US took this land right? So when you say arrogant, i think you are forgetting what we did to the Indians and Mexicans to take this land...Sure its ours now, but to pop off like that is itself very arrogant and hypocritical.

David, of course I'm aware of history, even the history people on here never acknowledge or realize happened. 'WE", whoever your'e talking about, didn't take this land. It was taken by people two hundred years ago. Since that time, Americans fought in a bloody revolution against the greatest power in the world at that time, England. Then came a bloody civil war, in which hundreds of thousands of people died. Nothing stood still. Laws were created to bring the country into the modern world and to stop the chaos needed to make a nation strong and safe. What you and others on this forum are advocating is a return to chaos, lawlessness, and strife. But you don't seem to realize this.

I and my family will not be partaking in any centennial celebration for this state.  There are times when I don't even want to admit I live here.  It's embarrassing.  I do not have an option to move, so here I am and here I will continue to be whether I like it or not.  I do not tolerate bigotry and racism on any level.  I do not like most of the politicians in office who condone and promote this behavior.  I do not like the fact that we have an uneducated governor who lies to the public and who goes out of her way to embarrass this state time and time again.  Celebrate?  I think I'll pass..............................

"I do not... I do not... I do not..." Why do all you liberals always assume the rest of the world gives a crap what you do or don't think/want/believe/like? Celebrating your state's centenial, incidentally, isn't celebrating your governor, whom you may or may not like, or celebrating any single law. Arizona is a state rich with history, if only you could see beyond your myopic false outrage. You're the sort of person who would remember Barry Goldwater as just a politician, not as someone who spent his life photographing, along with Ansel Adams and others, Arizona's incredibly diverse native American cultures and peoples, assembling an archive that has preserved history we otherwise would have lost. Like the Alex Baldwins and Whoopi Goldbergs and others of your ilk who love to be outraged but hate to be educated, it is perhaps best if you didn't celebrate the centennial. It would only ruin it for those of us who really are looking at 100 years of people, culture, environment, history, education, achievement, and Americana. In words you'll understand, open up a bag of cheetos, turn on The View, and chill.

God, why don't you LEAVE THE STATE. That's what the left that controls California, and the many Mexico City loving politicians in California always tell people who complain about their criminal enabling of illegal immigration.They say, if you don't like California LEAVE.The former Mexican instigator and fifth columnist Mario Obledo(now deceased) used to tell legal California citizens that all the time. If you don't like California leave, because Mexicans are going to control it. So why not take the advice of the people you respect so much?
