"Are you kidding? More brown people to eventually vote for Democrats? No, we like our brown people beholden to us, not the US."

Vietnamese boat people look on knowingly.

I hate making this whole thing political, but everything is political. Just get as many here as we can. We owe them that much and then we can move on to write books no one will read and make movies that will most likely suck.

If you want to see this exact bullshiat happening in real time, just watches this recording of Judy Woodruff interviewing Senator Barasso, whose last name slant rhymes with asshole.

Woops, wrong link. That was another example of Senator Barasso being an utter asshole. There are just so many to choose from. Here's the more recent example I was referencing:

To be fair, if you want examples of him being an asshole, you can pick pretty much any link with his name in it.

Not much of a shock. If they had any intention of letting refugees into this country they would have been getting people out as soon as Trump made the pull-out announcement.

I think that the eventual goal is to retroactively strip US citizens that are too brown of their citizenship and deport them. If you remember, Donny was threatening to do away with birthright citizenship.

Every election, conservatives will tell you that they're not opposed to immigration, but just illegal immigration, and when they get the chance the first thing they do is try to shut down all immigration.

Also, all those times the Bible says to help immigrants (and orphans and widows, which I'm guessing after so many Afghanis dead, there are plenty of in the mix).

Gosh, you don't think... you don't think the GOP's been disingenuous about following The Word, do you? Like they'd use it as a political cudgel and then bail on it the second it clashed with their racism/nationalism?

// I've only been paying attention since the 1990s, and they've been doing that basically the entire time
// but you don't think they're doing it AGAIN, do you? moral churchgoing folks like that, being liars?

We need to embrace Cuban immigrants because they come from an oppressive communist regime and would fight against that ever happening here.

We need to reject Afghan immigrants because they come from an oppressive theocratic regime and would figh against that ever happening here.

The first thing they did when they got off the Mayflower was write home and say "Dear god it's horrible here, don't come. Stay away."

Literally from the beginning they just wanted everything to themselves. They ignore that all of the great economic and technological progress we have made as a country is because we are a nation of immigrants.

Without immigrants we wither and die. Of course, while "they" sip mint juleps around the pools of their gated compounds.

It is a very difficult procedure, requiring a microscope and miniature surgical equipment.

Kind of like building a tiny ship in a tiny bottle

We do not want those people coming here and taking our jerbs that can't be filled because of the labor shortage.

Oh, they're fine with Norwegian volleyball players or Swedish grad students.  Maybe up those numbers.  You know, to show how open we are.

As a Miamian, I have a hard time believing that Cubans down here would fight against communism if it ever came to the United States.  Okay, maybe the name in practice, but definitely not the socialist collectivism that comes with communism...or the authoritarianism (or appeals to it).

Fidel Casto = BAD...however...
*Cuban free healthcare and college education? They like that A LOT.
*The government strong-arming people and trampling over the rights of 'other' people? They farking LOVE that.
*Cuban doctors being the first foreign doctors helping to fight Covid-19 on the front lines in Italy early last year? Huge source of pride for them. (The same doctors trained in the free colleges and universities provided by the same communism system the claim to loathe.)

Given the idiotic embrace they had of Agent Orange down here? They love everything about communism.  Just don't call it that. Their Republican programming won't allow them to accept the word-- just the handouts.

Here's a thought. Why don't we round up all the Trump aids, Fox News arm chair warriors, OAN armchair warriors, etc. Send them over to Afghanistan and let them try and fix things as normal citizens with no authority? If they're so gung ho and have the money to complain in major media then they should be the first boots on the ground to resolve the issue.

The approach isn't embraced by all Republican leaders, with some calling it mean-spirited and at odds with Christian teachings that are important to the white evangelicals who play a critical role in the party's base.

Wait, which policy are they talking about?  Because this could apply to a lot of them...

It's exactly the same as their approach to guns.  "We're only out to protect the law abiding citizens"  Then go about making all crimes with guns non-crimes.  So nothing involving a gun is 'illegal', therefore making all gun holders 'law abiding citizens'.

"We don't hate immigration, just illegal immigration."
"But you just made all immigration illegal".
"Because people need to obey the law."

I gave a smart votehere, but I couldn't stomach watching that hypocrisy all over againas the GQP ginned up yet another tissue thin rationalization for acting completely without honour and using a dead woman'sbwords out of contdxt to do so.  A disgusting spectacle.

At least they acknowledge the pure craven meanness of it.

"From a political standpoint, cultural issues are the most important issues that are on the mind of the American people," said Russ Vought, Trump's former budget chief and president of the Center for Renewing America, a nonprofit group that has been working on building opposition to Afghan refugee settlement in the U.S.

Translation: We don't give a rat's ass about the Afghan people who are dying under the "theocratic regime" they pretend to deplore. It's all about the politics of keeping everyone whipped up about importing more brown people to THEIR pristine little enclaves of whiteness.
