If Nevada’s Tea Party Senate candidate Sharron Angle is trying to alienate Hispanic voters ahead of Tuesday’s election, she’s doing a fantastic job. As follow up to what’s been called one of the most racist political ads of the year, the Angle campaign has unveiled a new website called The Harry Reid Amnesty Game.
Modeled after Monopoly, the front page of the site reads “Harry Reid thinks illegal immigration is a game but Nevada citizens know that it’s all too real,” followed by the tagline ‘Fun for the Entire Illegal Family.’ Angle unveiled the site via Twitter on Tuesday.
The site visitor rolls the dice and up pops a ‘Take A Chance’ card with a stereotype of undocumented behavior and a ‘Community Chest’ cared with a typed up insinuation that Harry Reid is more of a friend to those menacing brown people from Angle’s ads than to the good white voter. Each play ends with the instruction, “Pass Go, Collect Amnesty!”
Take a Chance: Disappointed Only US Citizens Get Social Security
Community Chest: Illegal Immigrants Get It Too!
Take a Chance: You Have to Pay Taxes
Community Chest: No You Don’t!
Angle has leveled many of the claims put forth in the game in her race-baiting ads. The non-partisan Politifact has said the accusation that Harry Reid voted to give undocumented immigrants Social Security is “barely true” while the accusation he voted to give them tax breaks is just plain “false.”
According to recent polls, Angle is holding a slight lead over Senate Majority Harry Reid going into Tuesday’s election.
