Sorry Republicans, the Honduran refugees aren’t this year’s “headless bodies”

On Tuesday morning, some goobers in Arizona thought they were going to repeat what goobers in Murrieta, CA did last week, when they got a bus full of refugees from Honduras to turn around, and border agents to stop sending anymore migrant children through their community, by being screaming assholes. Sadly for the Arizona effort, the bigots were only able to challenge one bus full of American kids going to a YMCA activity, though one Adam Kwasman, candidate for Congress in CD01, did succeed in making himself look like a giant dumbass.

Basically what is happening is that a lot of the conservatives here are engaging in a fumbling attempt to party like it’s 2010, when they rode immigrant bashing all the way to a smashing victory in that midterm election. SB1070 was many things, but one of the main things about it was that it was one of the most well-played scams in political history. It was pure flypaper to get Republicans out to vote, while dampening Democratic turnout, and making a fortune for Republican politicians and consultants. Much of the voter support for it that was not overt racism was justified ginned up hysteria over a murdered rancher, cartels, and “headless bodies in the desert”. Invoking those menacing images repeated enabled Republicans from Jan Brewer on down to claim they were protecting Arizonans from violence with SB1070. This is not so easily done with teenagers and small children fleeing their homelands in terror. Even Kwasman had to pretend he saw “fear on the faces” of the children on the YMCA bus. The screaming meemies protesting the childrens’ arrival are forced to emphasize “diseases”, because it’s obvious to any sentient being they are seeking refuge from violence, not trying to bring it here. Outside of making this about Obama, I’m not sure how much this would help any Republican here in November.

    How many illegal children have you volunteered to take into your home, Donna?

    And to shoot down your other lie, Donna:

    “A new intelligence assessment concludes that misperceptions about U.S. immigration policy – and not Central American violence – are fueling the surge of thousands of children illegally crossing the Mexican border.

    The 10-page July 7 report was issued by the El Paso Intelligence Center (EPIC), which according to the Justice Department website is led by the DEA and incorporates Homeland Security. Its focus is on the collection and distribution of tactical intelligence, information which can immediately be acted on by law enforcement.

    “Of the 230 migrants interviewed, 219 cited the primary reason for migrating to the United States was the perception of U.S. immigration laws granting free passes or permisos to UAC (unaccompanied children) and adult females OTMs (other than Mexicans) traveling with minors,” the report said.”

    Are you afraid of typing out “cunt?”

    No. Most real bloggers have the ability to move words like that into a review queue.

    My mistake for confusing you with a real blogger.

    Most people who aren’t sniveling cowards post under their own name. Is your real name Clay Andrews?

    My real name is Bob Seger, and this is my blog, democraticdiva.com.

    I wonder if Donna knows that.

    Donna wouldn’t know a clue if it bit her in her large ass.

    When was the last time you got any ass? You talk like a guy who’s ashamed of his morning wood.

    When was the last time you made music that didn’t suck?
