Every time I try and write about this, my brain shuts down. It just can’t handle this level of insanity and I think it’s trying to protect itself from harm. Certain things I come across have that power, and this is one of them.
Ok brain, you have to get through this. It’s for the good of everyone. Springville Republican delegate Don Larsen created a resolution which he put before the party. It was called the “Resolution opposing the Hate America anti-Christian Open Borders cabal,” yes, that was its title. This was what it claimed. An “invisible government” comprised of left-wing foundations was pumping money into the Democratic Party to push for looser immigration laws and anti-family
And that’s not all. He said that mostly illegal immigrants and people from disfunctional families voted for democrats. Uh-huh. That doesn’t reflect any personal biases, not at all. What stats did you use for that, considering I don’t think illegal immigrants can vote too easily.
Oh yeah, and who headed up the invisible government? Could it be…Satan? Yes, according to Larsen, it could, and he’s got lots of new testament references to back up his claims.
No no, brain, don’t shut down. We haven’t even gotten to the worst part, not by far. Take a break, and then we’ll hit this again.
You think you can do this now? Ok. First of all, this guy had been voted in, and it’s not like he just went nuts now and has recently started spouting this. No. He also did this two years ago!
I know, brain, it’s tempting to just stop, but we have to get through the worst part. Then you can collapse. The rest of the party was being urged to forcefully reject this resolution, but not for the reasons you might think. I would want to reject it because it’s nuts, because the guy is nuts, or for both. But why do they want to reject it? “the religious language Larsen used would push people away from the GOP.” Oh, the language is the concern. The religious language. The content has nothing to do with it, nothing at all. And the “language” would push people away. So if he used better language, and they thought the content would encourage folks to join, even if it was obvious lunacy, they would support it? Don’t I just love politics?
Ok brain, you can shut down now.
