Glenn Spencer Targeted
The National Council of La Raza (the race) has launched a major campaign to keep the truth from the American People. A Web page called We Can Stop the Hate is designed to impugn the character of five critics of illegal immigration. Glenn Spencer is one of the top five.
"America is being invaded and this is a naked attempt by the invaders to defeat our defenses," said Glenn Spencer of American Patrol.
Spencer said NCLR lists his appearance on the Paula Zahn Show as an example of his influence. "Since I was smeared by CNN I find it amusing that they would use this example," Spencer added.
