America's Voice En Español »
But while Thanksgiving means giving thanks, it also means turkey. That’s why we’re holding a contest to elect one lucky anti-immigrant extremist as our “Turkey of the Year!”
We’ll announce the winner on the Monday after Thanksgiving and present him with a framed certificate along with a HUGE turkey trophy.
The nominees for this year’s “Turkey of the Year” are:
1) Kris Kobach: Author of Arizona’s SB 1070 and Alabama’s HB 56, and the creator of Romney’s anti-immigrant platform which cost Romney the election. Clearly a political loser, but will he win turkey of the year? You decide.
2) Rep. Steve King: The Iowa Congressman thinks you can spot an immigrant by the shoes he or she wears, and thought comparing immigrants to dogs was a compliment. Dude, seriously?
3) Sheriff Joe Arpaio: Pink underwear, racial profiling, chain gangs, and corruption. He laughably calls himself “America’s Toughest Sheriff.” But does he have what it takes to be America’s turkey?
4) Rep. Bob Goodlatte: The next Chair of the Congressional Subcommittee on Immigration has earned an “A+” from leading anti-immigrant groups, which we clearly don’t like. Maybe a turkey trophy will inspire him to do better next year?
Until then, Happy Thanksgiving!
