I Agree With With 95% of This Racist Bull Shit

Don Larsen, a District Chairman for the Republican party, has brought forth a truly paranoid racist piece of batshit crazy legislation (via Pam). From the Herald Extra via David:

In a speech at the convention, Larsen told those gathered that illegal immigrants “hate American people” and “are determined to destroy this country, and there is nothing they won’t do.”

Illegal aliens are in control of the media, and working in tandem with Democrats, are trying to “destroy Christian America” and replace it with “a godless new world order — and that is not extremism, that is fact,” Larsen said.

David notes that this kind of speech simply starts with the radical radio hosts.

As we saw in Montana last week, the spread of vile, hateful rhetoric specifically intended to dehumanize liberals, illegal immigrants and Muslims is hardly relegated to the likes of Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter. That’s just where it starts.

So we can expect more. How comforting. What really gets me is Senator Howard Stephenson’s take on this:

Senator Howard Stephenson, R-Draper, spoke against the resolution, saying Larsen, whom he called a “true patriot and a close friend,” was embarrassing the Republican Party.

“I agree with 95 percent of this resolution but it has some language that is divisive and not inspiring other people to its vision,” he said. “This only gives fodder to the liberal media to give negative attention to the Republican Party.”

95%? So he agrees that Democrats and Immigrants are destroying this country? Or is it that Satan is behind the whole thing? Or that this is a Christian Nation? Well, maybe not the Satan part (Jesus’ General via Pam).

The best reason for the resolution was given by a nameless supporter (emphasis mine):

Another, who declined to give her name to the Daily Herald, said illegal immigrants should not be allowed because “they are not going to become Republicans and stop flying the flag upside down. … If they want to be Americans, they should learn to speak English and fly their flag like we do.”

The not becoming Republicans part is very understandable (perhaps we can even extend that to legal immigrants and citizens some brave new day). What gets me is the “flying the flag upside down” quote. The immigration debate has come down to butter. What an interesting way of saying “because they are not like us”.
