One (old, white) man yelled that only guns would discourage illegal immigration. Another (old, white) man complained that illegal immigrants should never be able to become citizens or vote. A third (old, white) man said illegal immigrants were illiterate invaders who wanted free government benefits.

Fixed for accuracy.

We don't know who struck first. Us or them. But sometime at the end of the twenty-first century the battle was joined.

Before that, we had Bachmann as (arguably) the most well-known fountain of derp.  McCain gave the Niagra Falls of derp the largest stage possible.

Oh yeah, he's more than just a little culpable for elevating the "legitimacy" of this crap.

Heh... I loved the one old coot trying to sound reasonable while saying the Army should be deployed to shoot people crossing the border.

It always comes down to violence with these idiots.


... And fark McCain. He deserves what he gets for courting this insanity when it suited him.

When you turn the lunatic fringe into your base, can folks be surprised at the results?

Oh, man, there's probably more to the write-up, but the article's too funny.

McCain: We don't have enough buses to deport all 11 million illegal immigrants, so that's not gonna work, you guys.
TEA Partier #1: Boo!
TEA Partier #2: But we have guns!
TEA Partier #3: Don't give them the vote!
TEA Partier #4: Those illiterate bastards just want our gubment monies!
McCain: Judeo-Christian! JUDEO-CHRISTIAN!

I wonder if the third man could spell illiterate without looking it up...

I don't know if it's because I have different friends now than I used to have or if the world is getting crazier, but I'm seeing a lot more of that stuff than I used to.

I was thinking the same thing, and I was about to post something along those lines. That having been said, when it comes to understanding the Tea Party's motivation, your Geth is as good as mine.

No that isn't the Geth. The Geth only fought in Self-Defense and they believe in being left alone and letting people do what they want. "All sentient beings have the right to Self-Determinate."

Gosh who would have guessed that pandering to bigots for votes and cash would mean that youd end up surrounded by bigots?
 
2013-02-20 08:28:11 AM  
A part of me wants the GOP to evolve, to rise to the challenges of the 21st century, to show that they aren't a bunch of xenophobic bigots clinging to an imaginary view of what life 'used' to be.

Then shiat like this happens.  Good riddance.  May the Teabaggers smother the GOP.

The man directly responsible is Karl Christian Rove. In a few months, he will embrace a revolutionary type of political ideology. In three years, the Tea Party will become the largest supplier of military-grade HERPA DERPA. All political opposition is upgraded with conspiracy theories, becoming fully unintelligible. Afterwards, they rant on cable news with a perfect operational record of logical inconsistency and thinly veiled racism. The Medicare Funding Bill is passed. The system goes online on August 4th, 1997. Rational discussions are removed from political discourse. The Tea Party begins to get dumber at a geometric rate. It becomes self-aware 2:14 AM, Eastern time, August 29th. In a panic, they try to pull the plug.

Yes. It launches primary opposition against their targets in the Republican Party.

Now the GOP is realizing that a knee-jerk astro-turf movement invented to create an impression of mass public rejection of the sitting POTUS didn't have the effect on the American public as hoped. Rather than join the mob, rational Americans rejected the anger and hate. Instead of burying Obama's presidency, they strengthened it.

Now that the Tea Party movement which was built on anger than reason is turning on its own. The mainstream Republican establishment is becomming the enemy. McCain isn't the only target of their scorn and the Nazi parody isn't just for Obama anymore.

I will admit I do get some schadenfreude watching people like McCain and other mainstream Republican leaders getting frustrated trying to reason with the Tea Party caucus, in hopes to try to stop the GOP ship from sinking.

Although I don't get how they can be right, yet so ignorant, their motivation is quite simple. What Civil Liberties and Rights guaranteed by the Constitution certain politicians don't dare openly oppose, they seek to "water down" or otherwise mitigate the exercise of through other means. Want to guarantee a Democrat-majority  voting bloc for the foreseeable future? Import and legitimize as many as you can, the people you feel you can buy the votes of with money taken from the people you are selling out. The future of the country doesn't matter; what matters is getting power NOW. Obama's running around right now, yelling about how the looming Sequestration should have been "phased in". Excuse me, Mr. Emperor, but you appear to be naked. This sequestration, he signed into law in 2011, and has had every opportunity to "phase in" for the past two years. But no, it's not about taking care of the future, it's about buying votes NOW.
