Right-wing radio host Jan Mickleson hit the headlines recently when he suggested illegal immigrants should become property of the state if they don’t leave the country. Now he is calling for racial profiling of voters.

“We have evidence voter fraud is rampant and we need to crack down on it,” Mickleson said. “Jeb Bush had it right when he paid a company to scrub the names of black voters from the polls, because they probably had felonies.”

Micklelson said the GOP needs to employ companies to remove not only people with “black” names like Jackson and Johnson, but also Latino and Arabic names.

“If you have a Latino name, like Lopez, you’re probably illegal and shouldn’t be voting,” said Mickleson. “And if your name is Mohammed, you’re probably a terrorist. Why are we even letting Muslims into this country anyway?”

While this rhetoric might sound outrageous, Mickleson once said he assumed anyone who had a Latino name and was involved with the police, must be illegal.


  1. Wouldn’t it be simpler to just allow the officials at polling stations to decide who gets to vote and who doesn’t? Because some Meskins or terrrrrrrrists might have normal names like “Smith” or “Jones” or they might CHANGE their names in court to further their plots to destroy the election system with illegal terrorvoting. And I’ve known people with the surname “White” who were anything BUT that, if you know what I mean. The only way to protect the sanctity of free elections is to allow the vote-counters to choose who gets to do it. As long as the counters are the right kind of people, if you know what I mean again…
