UPDATE: TSA Nominee Withdraws Amid 'Political Agenda'
Gee...I thought I am pro-life...I had no idea I'm a terrorist :)
President Barack Obama's nominee to head the agency charged with keeping American travelers safe from terrorism thinks pro-life advocates are terrorists. A new video shows Transportation Security Administration nominee Erroll Southers including pro-life advocates in a list of terrorist groups.
The new video from 2008 shows Southers responding to a documentary-style interview question about terrorist organizations.
The documentary asked Southers, "Which home-grown terrorist groups pose the greatest danger to the U.S."
Southers explained, "Most of the domestic groups that we pay attention to here are white supremacist groups. They're anti-government, in most cases anti-abortion, they are usually survivalist type in nature, identity oriented."
"Those groups are groups that claim to be extremely anti-government and Christian identity oriented," he continues.
Sen. Jim DeMint, a South Carolina Republican, has put a hold on the nomination of Southers to head the TSA, and the new video is likely to expand opposition to his nomination. Thank you Jim!
