After listening to John Boehner once again complain about the President’s request for $3.7 billion to try to stem the tide of children coming over the southern border, hire even more border guards, and put judges in place to adjudicate these cases, I was struck by the blinding hypocrisy of these Repub imbeciles.
Repub conservatives, in general, promulgate the following ideologies:
1. We are a Christian nation
2. We care about children
3. We are a nation of immigrants
The more radical of the group, although still identifying as Repub conservatives, add some of the following to the above list:
1. The Muslim faith promotes violence
2. Arabs are somewhat beneath Americans
3. We should be fiscally conservative in all matters
Keeping all this in mind, let’s look at three contemporary Repub conservative demands promoted by some key Repub conservative leaders.
1. We should go back to Iraq and re-fight that war
2. We should send troops to Syria
3. We should send troops to, or bomb Iran
(The above has been suggested by John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Mitch McConnell, Ted Cruse, Sarah Palin, Dick Cheney and Rush Limbaugh, among many, many others)
Military actions like this cost billions of dollars (the Iraq war alone cost over $1 billion per day) and protect…wait for it…Muslims. Yes as if you didn’t know, Iraq, Syria and Iran are all Muslim countries. And of course you remember George “Cowboy” Bush telling us that he was liberating the Iraqi people from Saddam Hussein. I’ve never figured out why the Iraqi people became so important to us all of a sudden, but I digress…
Many of these same Repub conservatives are chanting to send these children from Honduras and El Salvador back home, since they shouldn’t be our problem and taking care of them is too expensive. And, unlike those lovable Iraqi people, no one can think of any reason to liberate them.
So, if I have this right…
Those of you who hate Muslims and maintain that their religion is violent and that they hate Americans for their freedom, are willing to spend billions to protect mostly adult Muslims from whatever dictator is trying to kill them this week, virtually half-way around the world, and potentially risking angering others of their religion, possibly causing more terrorist attacks upon the US, whereas…
You think its too expensive to spend a fraction of that to save primarily Christian children, from our own hemisphere, who have no history of violence, and need nothing more than a place to live away from gangs and drug wars.
It must be tough walking around all day, avoiding mirrors. I can’t imagine what it must be like to see yourself in one.
How can you not be ashamed of your self-serving insouciance?
