Virgil Goode – Unapologetically Bigoted

21 12 2006

From this story:

 Rep. Virgil Goode (R-VA) is under fire for a virulently anti-Muslim letter sent to constituents earlier this month. In the letter, Goode says, “I fear that in the next century we will have many more Muslims in the United States” if we do not adopt “strict immigration policies.” He references the election of Muslim Rep.-elect Keith Ellison (D-MN), and warns “American citizens” to “wake up” or “there will likely be many more Muslims elected to office.”

Evidently, he refuses to apologize for said remark.  I don’t really know if an apology would mean anything anyway – if it is not sincere.  I also don’t think that Muslims in the united states is what we need to worry about; what scares me is the number of close minded bigots.
