Heavens to Betsy

From the great state of Utah, in the department of Conservatives Who Are Not Like You or Me:

[District 65 Chairman Don ] Larsen is urging the closing of national borders to illegal immigrants to “prevent the destruction of the U.S. by stealth invasion.”

“In order for Satan to establish his ‘New World Order’ and destroy the freedom of all people as predicted in the Scriptures, he must first destroy the U.S.,” his resolution states. “The mostly quiet and unspectacular invasion of illegal immigrants does not focus the attention of the nations the way open warfare does, but is all the more insidious for its stealth and innocuousness.”

In a speech at the convention, Larsen told those gathered that illegal immigrants “hate American people” and “are determined to destroy this country, and there is nothing they won’t do.”

Illegal aliens are in control of the media, and working in tandem with Democrats, are trying to “destroy Christian America” and replace it with “a godless new world order — and that is not extremism, that is fact,” Larsen said.

At the end of his speech, Larsen began to cry, saying illegal immigrants were trying to bring about the destruction of the U.S. “by self invasion.”

Republican officials then allowed speakers to defend and refute the resolution. One speaker, who was identified as “Joe,” said illegal immigrants were Marxist and under the influence of the devil. Another, who declined to give her name to the Daily Herald, said illegal immigrants should not be allowed because “they are not going to become Republicans and stop flying the flag upside down. … If they want to be Americans, they should learn to speak English and fly their flag like we do.”

Somehow, comment would be superfluous. I yield the floor.

One thought on “Heavens to Betsy

  1. The reinforces a few things we know to be true:

    1. There is no license required to call oneself a conservative (or liberal for that matter).
    2. There is no license required to speak publicly. This is a good thing for a variety of reasons. In this case, one of them appears to be that to do so would rob of a significant source of amusement, and (since these same people probably vote) concern.

    As a side note, is this Don Larson guy related to the Larson that writes the Far Side?
