No, I’m not kidding. Sad to say, this is not satire. Not intentionally, anyway:
Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) doesn’t think that the hardline stance Republicans have taken on immigration could hurt the party’s standing with Hispanic voters. Instead, he thinks Democrats are hurting their prospects with white voters.
“This is a part of the war on whites that’s being launched by the Democratic Party. And the way in which they’re launching this war is by claiming that whites hate everybody else,” he said during an interview Monday with conservative radio host Laura Ingraham. “It’s part of the strategy that Barack Obama implemented in 2008, continued in 2012, where he divides us all on race, on sex, greed, envy, class warfare, all those kinds of things. Well that’s not true.”
Christ on a bread roll, really? No, I mean seriously, really? These Obama-hating racist fuckwits are accusing DEMS of racism?
What a complete and utter brainless jackass is Congressman Todd Rokita, R-Bedlam. He said on a radio program that some of the illegal immigrant kids that have been conned into coming here are possible carriers of Ebola: http://www.nwitimes.com/news/local/govt-and-politics/indiana-congressman-says-immigrant-kids-might-have-ebola/article_6cd84d69-3909-50d7-aa64-cc211b491795.html
For the readers of this blog, here are the symptoms of Ebola, direct from the CDC. Tell me if you think somebody could make it overland from, say, Guatemala while suffering from this list of ailments:
Symptoms of Ebola HF typically include:
- Joint and muscle aches
- Stomach pain
- Lack of appetite
Some patients may experience:
- A Rash
- Red Eyes
- Sore throat
- Chest pain
- Difficulty breathing
- Difficulty swallowing
- Bleeding inside and outside of the body
Symptoms may appear anywhere from 2 to 21 days after exposure to ebolavirus though 8-10 days is most common.
Yeah, seems kinda unlikely, doesn’t it? Pretty obvious to anyone, you’d say, and you’d almost be right. It’s obvious to anyone but a Teabagging Republican Congresscritter. Tell me, why dafuq does ANYONE for these half-wits?
No, make that quarter-wits. We’re supposed to believe that Ebola sufferers (and children, at that) are trekking across Central America, hundreds and hundreds of miles, over mountains and through deserts? Christ on a Lone Star bottle cap, what stupidity exists between the ears of GOP politicos.
