Ask a GOP wingnut: What's responsible for illegal immigration? Clearly, it is abortion
What is to blame for illegal immigration? Well, in Wingnut World, and a Republican led report prepared by the Republican Missouri House committee, it is just oh-so-obvious: Abortion is responsible for illegals crossing our border and being illegally hired by employers. Yes, you read that correctly, See, to these mouth breathers, if all of those unwanted and genetically abnormal fetuses had been carried to term, we'd have an excess pool of folks to do the jobs that American won't do and refuse to do but the illegals will do. Anybody every notice that the sentence is NEVER finished b/c it should read: "These are jobs Americans don't want/ refuse to do"....... "at such ridiculously low slave wages in ridiculously unsafe conditions." And if we actually had a worker shortage, wages would rise dramatically and we all know THAT IS NOT the case. But why should actual economic facts cloud a wingnut's mind? The Special Committee on Immigration Reform also claims that "liberal social welfare policies" have created a disincentive for Americans to work and an enticement for foreigners to cross the border illegally. Liberal social welfare policies? Can you imagine if all of those aborted fetuses had been born, how much these freaks would be bitching about the "outlandishly high taxes" that would go towards paying for those "liberal social welfare services" and the public education of all those millions of unwanted kids? Oh that's right. Silly me. The Repukes and wingnuts only want the fetuses to be born. Past that, well... it is every newborn for itself! And oddly enough, the very same people who claim that Darwin's theory of Evolution is God-hating fiction wholeheartedly embrace Social Darwinism. Rep. Ed Emery (R-Lamar) stated: "We hear a lot of arguments today that the reason that we can't get serious about our borders is that we are desperate for all these workers. You don't have to think too long. If you kill 44 million of your potential workers, it's not too surprising we would be desperate for workers." Now lemme get this straight: If we only force the harvesting of aborted and frozen embryos, we could create tomorrow's unskilled labor force who will work for pennies on the dollar? How very Brave New World! Personally, I am especially fond of THIS solution: The solution is this: Start training embryonic stem cells to do entry-level jobs. There's no reason why microscopic, undifferentiated blastocysts shouldn't be pulling their weight in this economy. Look, if they want to be "people," then they damn well better understand "personal responsibilty." .... And please, don't encourage their shiftlessness by throwing them a few coins on the highway exit ramp.
