IL`s executive director Amy Novick sent out an email alert today (November 18, 2010) heralding IL`s updated "Hall of Shamers"—who are, of course, the leading patriotic immigration reformers in the upcoming 112th Congress. Novick`s email mentioned just Lamar Smith (R-TX), who will head the House Judiciary Committee come January, and Steve King (R-IA), who will chair the Immigration Subcommittee of Smith`s full committee.
What`s most interesting is Novick`s brief indictment of Congressman King:
Hall of Shamer and cultural assimilationist Steve King will now chair the House Immigration Subcommittee. That means that he will have the first say on whether any immigration bill moves forward.So "cultural assimilationist" is now an epithet! Who knew? Well, most VDARE.com readers and contributors have probably guessed that this was the case (e.g. see this striking 2006 letter to VDARE), but now we have it in black and white. (I`ll save that email from Novick!)
IL`s full list of their Hall of Shamers is here. Interestingly, the IL folks didn`t go out of their way to find hideous photos for these ten American heroes and heroines; everyone looks presentable to attractive.
