Conservative pundit Erick Erickson — who most recently was in the news for shooting an editorial on the front page of The New York Times calling for gun control — co-opted the 74th anniversary of the attacks on Pearl Harbor for his xenophobia.
Erickson tweeted on Monday morning:
Growing up, I remember my parents never letting us have Asian food on December 7th. They were children of WWII.

Erickson and his family moved to Dubai, United Arab Emirates when he was five and spent most of his childhood there.
