A delegate to the Republican party in Utah had a marvelous resolution for his party.
Don Larsen, a Springville delegate, offered the resolution, titled “Resolution opposing the Hate America anti-Christian Open Borders cabal,” warning delegates that an “invisible government” comprised of left-wing foundations was pumping money into the Democratic Party to push for looser immigration laws and anti-family legislation.
Larsen said Democrats get most of the votes cast by illegal immigrants and people in dysfunctional families.
But it’s not the Democrats who are behind this strategy, Larsen said. It’s the devil.
“Satan’s ultimate goal is to destroy the family,” Larsen said, “and these people are playing a leading part in it.”
Larsen’s resolution contained quotes from the New Testament on the battle between good and evil. The copy of the resolution handed to delegates stated it “fulfills scriptural prophecies about our times.”
I am not at all surprised — it’s not just Utah, but these kinds of loons are everywhere in this country, and they do not get laughed off the podium when they bring up these claims. I am impressed that they Utah GOP actually managed to reject the resolution … but it was for entirely pragmatic reasons. They said it would cost them Latino votes if they openly professed that Satan was shipping immigrants to America. They didn’t say that that was crazy or wrong, just that it might hurt their image with Latinos. That also didn’t surprise me.
