Heartless and Gullible and ….

Crossing sign - Illegal migrants“This is a total violation of my civil rights as an American citizen,” Thomas whined in a reaction to what he just saw on Fox News.

“What do you mean, honey?” his wife asked him.

“These damn illegal immigrants,” Thomas said. “They are diminishing the glory of our country. They just walk across our southern border and demand asylum and those goddam progressives in Washington are playing right into it. It’s the quintessential political ploy of trying to concentrate a bunch of foreign people — criminals, rapists, and gang members — in red-blooded, American states like Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona so they can stack the deck against the Republicans. You know all those damn criminal aliens will vote for those goddam Democratic candidates. It’s all a bunch of bullshit, Sally.”

“But, honey, you’re a first generation American,” Sally pointed out. “If it weren’t for the legal migration of those seeking asylum from oppression in Europe, your parents wouldn’t have been able to come to the United States.”

“But my parents didn’t come here from some shithole country,” Thomas said.

“You sound like you’re reciting the rubric of the Republican talking points book on immigration,” Sally said. “When did you become so heartless, so gullible…and so stupid?”

    So true for some of us. Believing everything thing on the media is not a good policy. You made your point.
