Palumbo: Not In My Backyard

Remember Peter Palumbo, the Rhode Island state representative who famously called Jessica Ahlquist an “evil little thing”? Well he just wrote a letter to the governor of that state saying that while he has sympathy for those 52,000 child refugees, he doesn’t think we should do anything to help them — at least not in …

Akin: Some of My Staff Were Conceived by Rape

Todd Akin has a new book out and he’s been on a publicity tour for it. And the more he opens his mouth to defend and double down on his claim that a woman’s body can shut down during a “legitimate rape” so she won’t get pregnant, the more ridiculous he sounds. Now he’s contradicting …

The Non-Existent ‘$50 Million Federal Resort for Illegals’

They say truth is the first casualty of war and it’s proving true in the right wing’s war on 52,000 child refugees — and on common decency.

Jon Stewart vs Louis Gohmert

Jon Stewart takes on the right wing’s freakout over 52,000 child refugees who have entered the country over the last few months, especially the incredibly stupid Louis Gohmert and one of his loopy House floor speech. This is funny stuff.

Rios: Treat Refugee Children Like Lepers

Sandy Rios of the American Family Association knows just what Jesus would do with those 52,000 child refugees at our border: He’d quarantine them like lepers. I’m sure that’s exactly what he meant by “whatever you do to the least of these, you do unto me also.”

Adam Kwasman, a Republican state legislator now running for Congress in Arizona, is one of those far right politicians who is simultaneously demanding that all of the refugee children be sent back immediately and that Obama is to blame for the mistreatment that led them to come here in the first place. And he has …

One of the most commonly repeated tropes in American history is the idea that immigrants come here and spread disease. It’s been used to oppose virtually every immigrant group throughout our history and now it’s being used by xenophobes once again to demand that 52,000 young refugees be sent back to Central America.
