Wait a minute. Your telling me a guy named Lorenzo Garcia is organizing a "catch an illegal immigrant" day? That's just all kinds of awesome.

Oh to be young, and conservative, and stupid.

//but I repeat myself.

They didn't say whether the volunteers students will be rounding up are actually not legally in the country or whether they will be handed over to INS after being caught. I suspect the answer in both cases is yes.

This.  Though they usually take it to potatoe right off, so doing anything is usually toning it down.

/I got it, let's have a bake sale and charge white people more!
//yeah, and dress up like nazis.  That'll show those libs!

Next month is the mock "destroy the Underground Railroad" event. Volunteers wearing t-shirts emblazoned with the slogan "black and proud" will attempt to hide under stairwells, in trees and behind teachers, but not in parking lots where they might be mistaken for regular black people waiting to mug students.

"It's meant to draw attention to a serious issue," says Lil Republican president Chuck Ofayston, "we just want people to stop and think about how much it costs them when people seek a better life regardless of the rules."

Toning down inflammatory rhetoric is un-American!  FIRST AMENDMENT YALL!  Also, Conservative rhetoric does not need to be toned down, because TINSTAAVC.

"The main point of it is to really look into the policy of illegal immigration ... and that the laws on the books right now aren't being enforced to the maximum capacity that we feel they could be "


Uh huh.  You either don't come from conservative money and/or are just an attention whore.  Want to be accurate with your little scenario?  Why don't you pose as a Texas billionaire and or corporate higher-up beckoning those illegal immigrants to come work for you while wearing a big shiat-eating grin (preferably with a cigar in your mouth).  Be sure you have plenty of people acting as conservative politicians looking the opposite direction.

It's not really that surprising to me. When I was living in California's central valley a lot of those that were against illegal immigration were from families that legally immigrated.

There Is No Such Thing As A Violent Conservative.  One of the linchpins of modern Conservative doctrine.  Because all acts of violence throughout history have been perpetrated by Liberals.

I'm not saying that those kids should be mugged, I'm just saying that if you belong to the young republicans you probably carry around a large amount of cash on you without a second thought.

I was feeling philanthropic.

There's always the hope that one of these dipshiats will emerge from the fog in the next ten years wondering wtf they were doing being such total assclowns.

Why is it that whenever a conservative does something stupid, they're "just trying to start a conversation" or "just raising a few unanswered questions" or "just making a satirical point"? Ted Cruz, Lindsey Graham, Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, the grand total that they won from all their grandstanding is NOTHING, while simultaneously doing incalculable damage to their own brand.

It WOULD be interesting if someone called ICE on this "Lorenzo Garcia" guy. I bet he doesn't have a Green Card.

I am desperately awaiting an article that explains that he was apprehended by a group of Young Republicans and drug to his office as they tried to turn him in to himself.

"You're making a big mistake fellas!"
"You told us you'd say that."

"I'm not an illegal immigrant!"
"You told us you'd say that too."

"spark a campus-wide discussion"

I love that phrasing.  It reminds me of a woman on Bill Maher last week.  She kept saying, "We need to start a conversation about spending and debt."  What she meant was, "We need to eliminate food stamps, welfare, unemployment and Medicaid."  I'm pretty sure she would keep agribusiness subsidies and multi-billion dollar ships protected because JERBS and KEEP AMERICA SAFE.

The phrase "spark a discussion" or "start a conversation" is as polite as the right gets with what is has been saying since, 2000, "WE won (forever), YOU lost (forever), now SHUT UP."

But by all means, Grand Old Derpers, keep the gun pointed at your foot and keep pulling the trigger.  People are bound to come around to your point of view once there's nothing left but a bloody stump.

Oh come on. They're just "asking questions."
