Samuel “Joe the Plumber” Wurzelbacher has never shied away from his ultra-conservative view of America and this time around the Ohio Congressional candidate for the GOP told a group of 125 supporters in Arizona that we should just “put a damn fence on the border going with Mexico and start shooting.”
I assume Wurzelbacher was referring to shooting at people trying to cross our border and not all Mexican’s but your guess is as good as mine.
Speaking to the Prescott eNews Joe The Plumber noted:
“I’m running for Congress and that should be a bad thing to say. You know what, that’s how I feel. I’m not going to hide it because I’m running for an office. I want my borders protected and I’m very, very adamant about that.”
Giving ultra-conservative, ignorant speeches in Arizona has become a traditional for Republicans lately, you make recall last year Arizona State Sen. Lori Klein pointed her .380 Ruger handgun laser sight at a reporters chest and said:
“It’s just so cute” she proclaimed while telling the reporter “I didn’t have my hand on the trigger.”
Wurzelbacher apparently wasn’t willing to make jokes about guns, not because of the James Holmes or Texas A&M shooting but rather because “we’re afraid it’s going to end up on the five o’clock news.”
Speaking about his ability to say whatever is on his mind Joe The Plumber told reporters:
“That’s one thing that’s really scared us and really hurt us as a country is everyone is afraid to open their mouths, to say a little something funny.”
Joe is no stranger to making controversial gun remarks, he recently blamed gun control for the holocaust, noting:
“In 1939 Germany established gun control; from 1939 to 1945, 6 million Jews, 7 million others, unable to defend themselves, were exterminated.”
Do you think Joe The Plumber will be elected in Ohio?
