It never ceases to amaze me at the downright stupidity that comes from conservatives and the Republican Party nowadays. The “hot button” topic of the week for the GOP is reviewing the 14th amendment.
Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky (a.k.a. Senator Idiot) said he supports holding hearings on the amendment right, which granted citizenship to “all persons born or naturalized in the United States,”
For those of you who aren’t familiar, the 14th Amendment was adopted in 1868 in the aftermath of the Civil War, which granted to recently freed slaves.
My question is, “Why is this topic even being discussed?” I can tell you why! Because GOP politicians have created a smoke screen, barking about immigration failures. Like Arizona’s immigration law, the measure is racist, short-sighted and geared towards scaring white people into a false send of urgency.
If you really want to get angry, get angry at the companies who’ve hired illegal immigrants. Those companies break the law and more than likely won’t receive any reprimand in the courts. But, of course, GOP lawmakers will turn a blind eye to the infraction, because those companies are the same ones who finance their election campaigns.
Better yet, with another mass shooting in the United States taking place, maybe you should take a look at the 2nd Amendment. Naw that would piss off the NRA! Too much money!
Yup! When it comes to the constitution, these “Gutless Cowards” love to pick and choose what to follow!
