ABC News (“Quran burning Pastor, Terry Jones, running for President“):
Pastor Terry Jones, the man who infamously burned a copy of the Quran in honor of 9/11, is throwing his hat into the 2012 presidential race.
The pastor announced his presidential bid Wednesday morning.
His campaign, Stand Up America Now, released a statement that features a seven point platform, including deporting all “illegals”, bringing all military back on American soil until America’s finances are in order and reducing corporate taxes. “Please financially support us as we continue our stand against radical Islam,” the release states.
While I’m confident he won’t win, he clearly appeals to a not-insignificant number of Americans.
