Jeb Bush Defends Multiculturalism: The Apocalypse Is Near

Jeb Bush a cheerleader for multiculturalism and ethnic diversity? Yes, because he was responding to Tom Tancredo, who called Miami a "Third World country":

A Colorado congressman who likened Miami to a "third world country" defended his comments in a letter to Gov. Jeb Bush, saying fewer city residents consider themselves Americans.

Bush had earlier responded to the remarks made by Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colo., after the congressman criticized the city's poverty and crime while attending an immigration conference in Palm Beach over the weekend.

Tancredo, a vocal supporter of the anti-illegal immigration movement in the U.S. House, made his initial comments to WorldNetDaily, a conservative online new site, his spokesman Carlos Espinosa said.

"Look at what has happened to Miami. It has become a Third World country. You just pick it up and take it and move it someplace. You would never know you're in the United States of America. You would certainly say you're in a Third World country," Tancredo said.

Bush, who plans to move to Miami after vacating the governor's office, said in his letter, said Tancredo's comments were "disappointing" and "naive."

"Miami is a wonderful city filled with diversity and heritage that we choose to celebrate, not insult," Bush said.

Says TChris at TalkLeft, "You know the end is near when Jeb Bush is the voice of sanity."
