Sharron Angle: We Have Domestic Enemies In Congress
An interview has surfaced where Nevada’s Republican Senate candidate agrees with the host that there are domestic enemies in Congress. Angle spoke with conservative talk show host Bill Manders in 2009.
MANDERS: We have domestic enemies. We have home-born homegrown enemies in our system. And I for one think we have some of those enemies in the walls of the Senate and the Congress.
ANGLE: Yes. I think you’re right, Bill
As Greg Sargent notes:
Because the host is the one who made the incendiary claim, this exchange might not be newsworthy if it had occurred in a vacuum. But Angle clearly and unequivocally agreed with it.
And in light of other recent Angle statements — such as her claim that people might resort to “Second Amendment remedies” if Congress continues on its current course — it is entirely possible that this is, in fact, what Angle believes. She should be asked about it.
Angle’s opponent, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, has issued this statement:
“Sharron Angle’s rhetoric is irresponsible and over the top. Let me be very clear. While I may have some differences of opinion with my Republican colleagues in the Senate, I have never questioned their patriotism. For Sharron Angle to agree that any of them — Republican or Democrat — is an enemy of the state is not only an insult to every United States Senator, it’s a disgrace to our country. If she is going to use such rhetoric, she has an obligation to name names and explain to the American people exactly who she thinks is a domestic enemy.”
