If you are going to be an ignorant xenophobe, you should at least try to be smart about it.
"An Arizona Tea Partier passionately blasted the arrival of migrant children being bused to a shelter in his town.
The problem? The passengers aboard the bus were local schoolchildren out for a day at a YMCA camp.
Adam Kwasman, a state legislator running for Congress, made the gaffe after he joined a demonstration Tuesday on the road to Oracle, Ariz., in outrage of the expected arrival of migrant children to a nearby shelter.
The 31-year-old Republican, who opposes Obama’s handling of the border crisis, saw a yellow school bus approach and tweeted a picture with the caption, “This is not compassion. This is the abrogation of the rule of law.'” [Source]
You can't make this stuff. The scary thing about it is that the guy will probably win. He will fit right in with the rest of his friends in Washington.
I bet if David Nicosia lived in Arizona he would vote for Ms. Kwasman.
David just strikes me as a tea party kind of guy.
"A Chicago man is accused of slapping and spitting in the face of a 79-year-old female judge while barking, "Rosa Parks, move."
David C. Nicosia, 55, allegedly twice attacked Judge Arnette Hubbard because she was smoking near him while outside the Daley Center on Monday, the Chicago Tribune reported.
Not unlike the brave civil rights icon, whose name was crassly flung at Hubbard, the African-American jurist followed after Nicosia while calling for assistance.
Before he was taken into custody by Cook County Sheriff's deputies, Nicosia, who is white, allegedly slapped and spit on her a second time.
He was arrested and charged with four counts of aggravated battery and a hate crime before ordered held on $90,000 bail Tuesday.
The Tribune reports that Hubbard was the first female president of the National Bar Association and Cook County Bar Association — both black lawyers' groups." [Source]
I bet her Honor thought that her civil rights fighting days were behind her. Well not so fast, Judge. We are now living in "post racial" times. Even the Klan is kinder and gentler these days.
The poor guy is 55 but looks like he is 85. It must be tough being a white male of a certain age in these "post racial" times. If only things were racial again. Then, at least, being white would mean something.
