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.
