(Breitbart.com)   Stephen King calls on conservatives to treat immigrant children with decency and respect. Angry Tea Party demands to know why he won't let them sleep on his lawn if he cares so much. Truly a horror story   (breitbart.com) divider line 251

WTF is wrong in these people's brains?  Seriously, this idea that someone has to personally open their homes to refugee children or else they're hypocrites when they say they want the kids treated with decency and compassion is the DUMBEST thing to come out of the right in a very long time.  And that's really saying something.

You know what is hypocritical?  Professing to be a follower of the teachings of one Jesus H Christ and completely ignoring all that shiat he said about helping the poor and feeding the hungry, even when they're foreigners and loving you enemy and turning the other cheek and not praying in public and shiat.  That is legitimately and monumentally hypocritical.

I have never been to church and have only a basic knowledge of Christianity, but it seems like what I think I understand about the new testament is at odds with how the GOP's devout Christians practice.

I've never seen it that bad, but I have seen people get all misty eyed at the thought of being raputred to heaven, because life on Earth is just so miserable.  And I don't get it.  Death comes to us all, you can still get into heaven (theorhetically) without condemning the rest of the farking planet to hellfire.

I am not, myself, Christian in that I don't believe that Jesus Christ was the incarnation of God.  I think he was a man and he had some really great ideas and I think the world would be a better place if his followers heeded the message more than they fixate on the messenger.  But if life has taught me anything it's that what you believe does not change who you are.  There are some really hateful Christians and some very loving and caring non-christians and if the latter are ending up in hell then I am happy to join them because I will at least be in very good company.

What a stupid premise for an argument, to my knowledge they aren't looking for lawns for these kids to tent up on.

But if they were, I'd take one. Nothing creepy, I'd easily pass a background check. I have the space (an actual room!) and can afford to help out a kiddo. I feel really bad for these kids.

its just the latest rhetorical dodge from the extreme right.  point out that their gods commanded them to show mercy and compassion to others, and they almost always first thing say something to the effect of 'oh yeah - well when are YOU gonna let one sleep in your living room'.  they honestly believe that to be a witty and clever retort.  its not mind you...its actually rather stupid of them to say...but there you go.

To their minds, "Do as I Say, Not as I Do" is one of the Ten Commandments. Possibly, all ten.

This isn't a case of "if you don't vote, your opinion is less valid than someone who does" - one can have an opinion on what the government should do about a legitimate crisis/problem without personally solving it.  (Not that I think Stephen King personally housing foreign refugees is a solution to the problem in the slightest, it just makes these people feel somehow "righteous" in their hatred of children whose parents are attempting to spare them a life of horrors under gangs and drug cartels... but you get the point.)

for what little its worth, I agree with your assessment.  not that it helps with the teahaddists and their hypocrisy mind you....oh, and something else.  pro lifers who hate immigrant kids really really dont like it when you ask them how their fear/hate of immigrant children relates to their pro life views.  if they could pelt me with rotten fruit via TCP/IP im sure they would have done so several times by now.

It's pretty well known that they are only "pro-life" when it regards a fetus (or zygote, or potentially, maybe, fertilized egg that may have implanted itself if not for birth control preventing it.) Once that pregnancy has been brought to term and there is a newborn baby, they cease to care if it is put up for adoption, hungry, unloved, unwanted, or if the parent(s) is/are struggling to get by and take care of said baby/child.  They have a massive thing for ensuring as many babies as possible are born, but have zero concern whatsoever for actual babies and children (and realistically, people of all ages) after the fact.  It's a very convoluted view that makes no sense to anyone with critical thinking skills, which you and I happen to have. If we could just put these immigrant children into some sort of magical womb, they'd be at the border, picketing for their rights to life in this country.

It doesn't matter who makes a bad argument, the argument is still bad (and yes that whole "how many children have you adopted" schtick is a bad argument.

But asking people why they're against social programs for struggling parents is not (and far more common).

Most individuals don't have the resources to make a meaningful impact on the problems of the world and it's ridiculous to imply that they should.  But there's no reason why the government should be prevented from helping in areas they clearly have the means to be helpful and the republicans are hell bent on making sure government is not the slightest bit helpful to anyone.

Taking an interest in an actual child's well-being would require effort and resources.  Yelling one-liners from bumper stickers about about abortions at poor people is easy.  They just claim some self-righteous, moral high ground without ever actually having to do anything.  Sadly, if you do that and mumble something about the bible in this country, it's taken as a serious position, no matter how demonstrably false, destructive or misguided it may be.  It's farking crazy.

OK, let's play this out. Barges of refugee children/whatever start showing up from all over the world. The USA becomes the last refuge for the world's problems.

Where do we find the funding to deal with this? Most Farklibs are Yutes, so you will be taking on an extraordinary burden because the corrupt governments that these 'refugees' are coming from refuse to accept. Mexico has one of the largest income disparities of any country in the world and benefits greatly by shipping their un/underemployed to the US. Wait until Africa finds that sending ships to Italy isn't as beneficial as sending them to the US.

Hey. I'm old and about to start leaching from my kids and most of the farkers, can you really afford to take on the costs of the world's problems considering the ridiculous unemployment rates for the <30 generation?

On the other hand, dinging someone for wanting taxes raised while simultaneously being caught taking a lot of questionable tax breaks is pretty fair - and very common.

Or (for a recent example) someone like Nancy Pelosi whining about corrupt corporate executives while her son is in the middle of a HUGE corporate securities fraud story.

It's innocence by association.  The more morally bankrupt a person is, the more strongly they'll identify with something generally seen as morally pure as though mere association with it will somehow temper their own failings.  Sort of an inverse Godwin.  When picking teams, you always want to make sure Jesus ends up on your side and Hitler ends up on your opponent's side, even though both of them actually suck at kickball.

BUT WHY IS IT OUR PROBLEM??!?!?

That's true leadership right there.  Apparently the right wing only thinks that the country shows "leadership" by invading countries in the middle east for no reason.

On the one hand, it's "lets invade Iraq to spread democracy."  Because as the world's only superpower, it is our duty to bring the light of democracy and enduring freedom to this dark part of the world.

On the other hand, it's "lets do nothing to stop climate change and not commit to any global treaties, because other countries will keep emitting greenhouse gases no matter what America does."

Just like most Tea-party lines of thought; it starts off with a false pretense that King could offer his home as a sanctuary.  Then takes off running on the crazy train. It is like arguing with a 3 year old who lacks a grasp on the full picture and really can only cognitively comprehend what it wants and trying to rationalize with them goes right over their head.

Almost as dumb as asking pro-lifers if they would be willing to pay to clothe, feed, and educate unwanted children who would otherwise have been aborted.

It's a pretty standard ploy, really.  If someone supports something as a matter of policy, attack them on it by turning that policy into a household example.  "Oh, you support higher taxes? Why don't you send more money to the government yourself!" etc.

This aspect, I agree... is one of the biggest issues I have with these type of far right "thinkers"... and that's a term I use loosely.  No, King does not have to open his home to them for them to live.  For one thing these children are seeking Asylum and/or a Refugee status, which has a legal standing different from anyone else that happens to enter our country for any other reason.  I don't think that private citizens would be permitted to accept these children and house them without some sort of due process.  Also, we seem to forget about the logistics here... these children are coming across the border in Texas... not Maine, or Florida.

Diogenes: If only we could shunt Teabaggers into that other spooky dimension like in The Talisman.


Morgan Sloat would LOVE these idiots.  So incredibly easy to manipulate.

Confabulat: Frederick: I have never been to church and have only a basic knowledge of Christianity, but it seems like what I think I understand about the new testament is at odds with how the GOP's devout Christians practice.
Its confusing.

I've read the New Testament, and I"m pretty sure the Tea Party is exactly at odds with Jesus at every point he made.


In all honesty, IS there actually any stance Jesus taught that the tea party follows?

Pray quietly and do not stand on corners like hypocrites? Nope.
Render what is God's to God and Ceasar's to Ceasar? Nope.
Love your neighbor as you love yourself? Nope.
No money changers in the temple? Nope.
What you do to the least of your brothers you do to me? Nope.
Good samaritan? Nope.
Believe without seeing or validated? Nope.
The meek shall inherit the earth? Nope.
Humble? Nope.
Give up your riches? Nope.
Turn the other cheek? Nope.
Stay your sword? Nope.
Without sin and cast the first stone? Nope.

Does the Tea Party claim to follow Christ because they are super jealous of how he died?

Well, teabaggers have the mentality of children, so it makes sense.

To these people, the children are just yet another battleground in their never ending culture war against the hippies

Vodka Zombie: Teabaggers are stupid people.  And the solution to this issue is a little more complicated than: "point gunz in their faces n' chase 'em outta Jesus' freedum murica for patriot n Reagan, yeeehaw!"


Despite being catchy and easy to remember, bumper sticker solutions don't solve real problems.

NeverDrunk23: Without sin and cast the first stone? Nope.


They do seem to believe themselves to be without sin - after all, they've been Saved!
