How American Are You?

I don't know what the big deal is about this NRCC quiz. 

I mean, clearly this guy has already won: 

After the incident took place, Murrieta’s Mayor Alan Long told Fox News, “When you start asking about the health screenings that they claim they get, there’s a lot of gaps. They could not answer a lot of questions that we had to give us certainty that the people on those buses were healthy.”

Long’s public health argument has been raised before by various anti-immigrant groups, but migrants detained at the border are medically screened for “communicable diseases of public health concern” and symptoms like rash, fever, cough, vomiting and diarrhea during the processing stage.

The Murrieta mayor warned residents on Monday that the city’s Border Patrol processing facility would receive about 140 immigrants from Texas every 72 hours as part of the federal government’s plan to deal with the surge of unaccompanied children who are mostly fleeing violence and grinding poverty in Latin America. Long explained that the city had been “successful” in turning away Border Patrol efforts twice before. He said, “Murrieta continues to object to this transfer of illegal immigrants from local Border Patrol offices. … What you the public can do … contact your Congress representative and the White House. Residents can help by spreading facts and not rumors. … Right now, the best thing you can do is to contact the federal officials that makes these decisions and ask for it to be changed.”

1. There's a photo at the link of a lady holding up a sign that says "Protect Your Kids from Diseases." She seems like a real winner. As I have said before, STOP USING YOUR KIDS AS AN EXCUSE TO BE A DICK. If you want to be a racist, xenophobic, logic-averse, mouthbreathing nitwit, JUST GO DO THAT THEN. Don't make your kids bear the burden of it. They're their own people with their own stuff to do. Quit making them responsible for all the crappy things about you. That's on you. 

2. So let's grant the point that these are lice-infested, open-sore-faced, typhoid-ridden filth people who are being bused into this town. There are lice-infested, open-sore-faced, typhoid-ridden filth people ALREADY IN THIS TOWN, and the way I know that is that there are lice-infested, open-sore-faced, typhoid-ridden filth people in every town, because this country's economy is a bag of dog turds right now and nobody can afford to go to the doctor. If your concern is public health, I assume you'll be greeting buses of immigrants with boxes of antibiotics, and also going to the poorest neighborhoods in your godforsaken shit shack city offering doctors and nurses gratis. I mean, it's about the safety of your children, so clearly. 

3. Encouraging the townspeople to turn their ire on the feds is going to work out so well for everyone involved. 

But hey, there were dueling rallies, so clearly there's no way to know if anybody here is right or wrong. DUELING!

  1. And what do any of the questions on the NRCC quiz have to be with being a true American ? (Ignoring for the moment the heavy slant to WASP 1950s jingoism). And have they figured out that most born-American folk couldn’t pass the citizenship test ?
    It takes a big man to stand up to a bunch of little kids. I have a fear, though, that the lack of action on Bundy will indeed encourage any group to turn their ire on the feds. So before they do, can we get out a book of “Spelling for Bigots” ?

  2. I remember a passage from the Bible about Jesus meeting a man with leprosy. The man knelt before Jesus and asked to be healed and, iirc, Jesus said “Get thy sick self the f**k away from me”. So clearly these are just good Christian men and women.

  3. As for NRCC quiz, I checked 1/100 and was told: America is the best country in the world and that I embrace it. Feel free to draw your own conclusions. I give up.
