Michigan Wingnuts Flip Out Over Immigrant Kids

A non-profit in Vassar, Michigan is proposing to house up to 120 of the Central American immigrant boys for a few weeks until their cases can be heard by an immigration judge and some of the locals are absolutely losing their minds over it and spouting bizarre conspiracy theories.

Protesters carrying Gadsden “Don’t tread on me” flags and placards promoting conspiracy theorist Alex Jones’ InfoWars website gathered outside the event, and some of them took the microphone to share claims circulating on right-wing websites and social media.

“The children that are involved here are only pawns,” said Tamyra Murray, an anti-immigrant activist. “They’re a game to control our nation. It’s an invasion, nothing less than an invasion.”

Murray claimed the surge of immigrant children had been orchestrated by Central and South American governments to undermine the U.S., and an audience member shouted out that these immigrants would one day provide Democratic votes.

“If this program is allowed to proceed, it will never end,” she said. “Government entities, once they create something, they never exterminate it. It’s going to be a perpetual source of income, and for government agencies and committees in the federal government.”

Many of the speakers blasted President Barack Obama, describing him as a criminal or worse.

“The housing of illegal aliens is violating U.S. laws (and) President Obama is failing to uphold the Constitution and laws enacted by Congress,” said Tom Wassa, a Republican candidate for the Michigan House of Representatives. “President Obama would be classified as a domestic terrorist. He is creating an atmosphere of fear and terror.”…

One Vassar resident suggested militarizing the border.

“I support a minefield along the border,” said Terry Mocny, a Marine Corps veteran who said he supported legal immigration.

Jesus Christ, I share a state with these people. I’ve got a better idea. How about we let those kids come here and send all these xenophobic assholes to Central America? No, Central America has suffered enough.

    I don’t know how much longer the global community can let you people self-govern. It’d be one thing if you were only a danger to yourselves, but the rest of us have to live with you nuke-obsessed yokels.

    The Carroll County council in Maryland had a coniption about a facility in the county being used for immigrants. These are the same people who insisted on praying before meetings and farting out their love of Jesus to everyone

    Well, Jesus was on record for hating kids. It’s the only verse in the American bible that isn’t about how gays are terrible.

    These people are so disconnected from reality. The government is trying to process and DEPORT them! These fuckheads are protesting actions that they want taken!

    And then there’s this: ““The housing of illegal aliens is violating U.S. laws (and) President Obama is failing to uphold the Constitution and laws enacted by Congress,” said Tom Wassa, a Republican candidate for the Michigan House of Representatives. ”

    This is being done because George Bush signed this in to law, to help curb child trafficking. Jesus, these people are idiots.

    The next time conservatives claim to have compassion, can we remind them of the Great ’14 Hate-a-thon of Desperate Children?

  6. dugglebogey says

    If your government can be toppled by 120 homeless children, does it deserve to survive?

  7. busterggi says

    What would Saint Ronald Reagan do?

    Oh yeah, grant them amnesty and make them citizens.

  8. dugglebogey says

    P.S. Failing to take care of homeless desperate children is failing to uphold MORAL LAW.

    You’re failing as HUMAN BEINGS by being such tremendous ASSHOLES.

  9. Kevin Kehres says

    Can we please not refer to them as “immigrant” kids.

    Refugees is a much better term.

    …and an audience member shouted out that these immigrants would one day provide Democratic votes.

    Huh. Odd, that.

    Plus, The Immigrant Kids was my boy band. I was the rebellious one.

    I wonder how bad these guys will freak out come November. Given how low the approval ratings are for the GOP in the Michigan Legislature (24% in the most recent Public Policy Polling data), I have hard time thinking that they’ll keep a majority in both chambers.

  12. 'smee says

    D.C. Sessions: 24% is plenty in an election with 36% turnout. 70% of the population surprisingly ineligible to vote

    FTFY

  13. felidae says

    Just land mines–how about infilading machine gun fire too? Maybe they can sell videos of children blown to bits for these sick fucks that call themselves Christians Just remember the Klu Klux Klan describes themselves as a Christian organization

  14. DaveL says

    They say these kids are only pawns, right? So that means they’re innocent children, right? So what do we do when we run across innocent children stranded without parents or guardians? I fail to see how this could be controversial, except for the right-wing reality distortion field.

  15. tfkreference says

    I think they mean pawns as in powerless combatants, yet still combatants, and therefore legitimate targets. A dog whistle metaphor.

  16. says

    120 children in need of safe housing is a bunch of pawns? OK jackass this isn’t chess. These are real people and if your so pro life, prove it.

  17. hunter says

    Wes Aaron: No, you don’t understand the whole “pro-life” thing: children only need to be protected before they’re born. After that, they’re fair game.

  18. says

    I watched the videos and noticed two things.

    The first was that most of the protesters seemed to have been prepped to talk about the Hispan-o-perps bringin’ disease, crime and, um, badstuff to MurKKKa. As if they were reading from a script.

    The second thing I noticed was that NONE of them looked like they themselves were from good, honest, hardworkin’ GREAT SPIRIT fearin’ TROO AMERICANS, the ones who were here when the Eurotrash arrived in the 15th century.

    Predictably, where there were Gadsden Flags there were teh gunz.(@ about :25 in):

    The few, the strange, the delusional.

    Well, if that wasn’t true before, it probably is now.

    I’ve quoted it before I know but isn’t this an icon that summarises US values and what the United States is meant to stand for?

    Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
    With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
    Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
    A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
    Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
    Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
    Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
    The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.

    “Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
    With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
    Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
    The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
    Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
    I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
    “The New Colossus” by American poet Emma Lazarus, inscribed upon the Statute of Liberty gift of France and ender of Planet of the Apes movie. (Convenient landing location desu ne?)

    Oh I agree. And you should stop using them as such.

    What curious, and dare I say somewhat revealing, wording.

    Indeed. For instance, the USAlien Army still has a Camel Corps
