"...We need to continue to show that our policies help every voter out there achieve the American dream, which is to be in the middle class..." -Bobby Jindal (R)
Obviously, by the very definition of the term, all American voters will never be in the middle class. To be in the middle you need both some above and some below you. To encourage a society to aspire to an impossible state is the ultimate cruelty.
"The majority of people here—if some people have criminal records you can send 'em home—but if people are here, law-abiding, participating, four years, their kids are born here ... first secure the border, pathway to citizenship ... then it's done. But you can't let the problem continue. It's gotta stop." -Sean Hannity
Illegal immigrants, by the very definition of the term, cannot be law-abiding. More importantly, I assume the "problem" he says can't be allowed to continue is voters from Mexico and Central/South America overwhelmingly voting for the Democrats. That's where the imbecile's mind is! He only cares about what demographic change is doing to his party and not at all what it's doing to his country and his listeners. The fact that he happens to be wrong about the affect passing amnesty would have on demographic voting patterns is as nothing compared to the monstrosity of that.
"But then what to do? I think you have to ask yourself the following question. Do you accept that the GOP really is the “party of white people” and that racial divisions in the nation’s political DNA are not only real, but so permanent that minorities will forever vote for Democrats in titanic proportions? Because if you do believe that, then demographic trends should tell you that it’s time to pack up the Republican Party in its old kit bag and send it out into the sunset. President Obama didn’t even take 40% of the white vote last week and he still won. That party is over… pun intended." -Jazz Shaw (blogger at Republican blog Hotair)
Translation: "I cannot bear to believe these things, therefore they must not be true."
But all this Republican madness issues forth largely from their desire to avoid being seen as similar to Kemal Ataturk, the most evil man in history who killed so many Armenian men, women and children is his genocidal plot to wipe the Armenian people off the face of the earth.
No wonder the political descendants of Ataturk, who ruled Turkey until quite recently, were treated as pariahs by the Republican Party and the American Government, those two entities so endlessly devoted to the idea that minorities should be protected at all costs.
