GOP official says his party’s full of bigots! | The Daily Caller

Finesse? Not Since Jefferson Dined Alone … : A man named Shaun Kenney was recently named Executive Director of the Virginia Republican party.  Here is a post of his from the blog, Bearing Drift.  In it he argues that “Conservatives have a moral duty to drive out nativism once and for all.” It becomes clear by the end of the post that when he says “nativist” he’s including more or less everyone in the party who opposes “comprehensive immigration reform.”

“There are 12 million people in the United States today who want a better lives for themselves and their families, whose only crime was that they came to America to do it.

‘”The nativists have a very simple solution: apprehend all 12 million of them, boxcar them back to their point of origin, and drive them out as so many locusts. …

Yeah, well, what would you do if you found that somebody had broken into your home, cleaned out your refrigerator, and moved lock, stock, and stinking barrel into your spare bedroom after announcing that he had a permanent right to do so?

I think merely booting this fellow back out your front door is a rather mild solution. I can think of some folks whose preferred response would be to shoot the invader, but I’m not sure such harsh remedies are called for quite yet.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. My thought for years has been to declare that any US citizen can kill an illegal alien and get a pardon. The only drawback is that my plan depends on accuracy and diligence on the part of INS or whatever those retards call themselves these days. This could be mitigated by announcing that the shooter still gets his pardon if he acted in good faith and on the best available info from the government… and that 100 randomly selected INS paper pushers would be executed for every incorrectly-identified so-called illegal who was killed.

  2. It’s not enough that they want a better lives for themselves. Don’t the vast majority of us want that too?

    There are two issues here. They are, for the most part, net drains on society. Which means their better lives come at the expense of some existing Americans quality of life. More importantly, they don’t want to be Americans. They want to keep their language and customs and establish permanent ghettoes that exclude assimilated groups and natural born Americans that want to practice American values and culture. They want to take our land and make it their own. They want Socialism and Security, not Capitalism and Freedom and Limited Government. How is that different from an invasion?

      Well now, y’know, that kinda-sorta-pretty much sounds just about like what all those “Progressive” folks who keep “migrating” out of places like Kalifornia and Illinoyance and Massholechusetts and the like, into places like Idaho and Indiana and the Carolinas, seem to want to do and be like once they get to their new “home-lands”, and nobody seems to be talking about deporting them, or shooting or hanging them on sight, right?…

      Hmmm-m-m…OTOH…
