Thanks to The Texas Tribune.
Our own Lucian (@lwdgrfx) spotted more right wing hypocrisy, stupidity, and even found some humor in this eye-popping post at Raw Story.Brain? They're Teabaggers. Don't need no steenkin' brain!
Birther Christina Katok, of course, an avid Ted Cruz fan, proves once again how so many of these right wing extremists are of very little, if any, brain.
But Katok doesn’t seem to understand a few basics, as you can see in the video where you can watch her say the following at a Texas tea party rally:I have only three things to add:
“As far as I’m concerned, Canada is not really foreign soil,” she explained, adding that she was more worried about the president’s “strong ties to Kenya.” She noted that Obama had not released his long-form birth certificate until after he was elected.
What if Canadians were brown people who didn’t speak English, Birther Christina? Would you make the same claim, as far as you’re concerned? What if President Obama’s skin was as white as yours?
I’ll dispense with further snarky commentary, because Lucian nailed it in two sentences. As he points out so astutely:
“If Canada ‘is not really foreign soil’ because they’re our neighbors, then neither is Mexico. Therefore, we no longer need to worry about deporting Mexican citizens here without papers because hey, what’s the problem – they’re not foreigners!
Trying to maintain Ted Cruz is eligible for the presidency but President Obama is not? Priceless.”
