Come on, that was the most obvious title, wasn’t it? But this may not be:
It has been remarked (mainly by me on the Facehell) that this whole idea that we need to restrict immigrants from the Middle East (which, to the xenophobic idiots populating most of the right side of our political spectrum, means brown folks that aren’t Christian enough to handle snakes_) is not only stupid, transgressive, and un-Christian; but that based on the Constitution this crap is not only Un-Constitutional, but also based on one of our major American Symbols (provided by France, by the fucking way):
“Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
“Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
Dammit, white folks, you all got here because your ancestors fled some shitty conditions in their home countries. Do you really think white folks were the Natives in North America? I guess you do, because most of you are fucking xenophobic morons.
Special note to my favorite target Turdwaffle: I guess your inability to graduate from college is representative, because you seem to be really fucking stupid. The FUCKING CONSTITUTION does not allow you to say we don’t want refugees. If you really give a shit, let the Syrians come to Madison and Milwaukee, who already have a thriving (and non-terrorist) culture of various ethnic groups. I look forward to some awesome Syrian restaurants opening really soon…
So, y0u paranoid, xenophobic idiots that, while you got elected to various levels of office, have decided that understanding the actual text of the documents governing our goddam large, silly and kind of twisted country is less important than being obsequious to ALEC or a very few repulsively rich asswipes who may fund your future campaigns: let me tell you that not only are you stupid as fourteen open-end ratchets in a vacuum-bag, you also are not able to understand what the actual Constitution (which you claim to be fully devoted to), but you also misunderstand about what AMERICA IS FUCKING ABOUT.
DO YOU REMEMBER? the ideas taught us in public school (and maybe this is a big part of the reason that the push is on to eliminate public schools) was that we were a country that accepted people from all kinds of other countries, especially the ones that were, in desperation, coming here in hope for anything better than the horrid things they were trying to escape…
Germans. Irish. Mormons. Of course, the Jews during WW2 were turned away, because some of FREEDOM. Asians, who were interred. Hispanics, who lived in much of the southwest, but are still being treated is interlopers. Blacks, who were stolen from their homelands and enslaved, and were not treated (legally) as equal citizens until…yeah, the 1960s.
Holy fuck, white people. We suck.
Can we try to do better with the people fleeing the horror of the Mideast (which we should, by all rights, accept that we have some responsibilty for).?
Well, let’s ask the many other governors who are apparently unable to understand the actual Constitution.
So I wish to offer these to graphs:
and here’s the actual legal version:
So, like I have said many times before, fuck yourself, Trudwaffle, You have been told by your oligharch supporters that everything you do at their behest is best and legal (and the second part of that is optional). Your decision, in a rush of public xenophobia, is weak and sucky at best.
You are a weak, suburban white kid at best. When I grew up near Madison, I started to learn the love of other cultures on State Street. When I moved to Milwaukee, I found that the lively immigrant culture has given us some amazing restaurants and a vibrant-multi-cultural environment. The thing I see whenever I go enjoy any of these cultural parts, restaurants and festivals, is that they are effusively welcoming of me as a white germanic guy.
You know what? I think we ought to respond by doing the same thing to immigrants and refugees.
Dammit, I love their food and their culture. If you ignore it, you are not only being ignorant, but you are shutting down the possibility of finding new friends.
Fuck you , Turdwaffle. The French have been so exemplary in that many people have offered their houses to displaced citizens…
In contradiction to our stupid fucking moronic governor who is stupid…
I would offer my zombie house to any Syrians who can get here. Out governor is not representative of us; we in Wisconsin have always opened our doors to immigrants; Holy shit, the germanic heritage is due to the idea that we allowed for immigrants that were not acceptable to the eastern states.
