#Dumbass Iowa RNC official: Child migrants ‘highly trained as warriors’ may ‘rise up against us’


A Republican official in Iowa urged Americans not to compare child migrants to their own children but to instead consider them dangerous threats.
Tamara Scott, a Republican National Committeewoman and state director of Concerned Women for America, made the comments Thursday on her weekly radio show, reported Right Wing Watch.
“When we see these kids, you and I think young kids, we think maybe 12-year-olds, maybe homeschoolers — excuse me, middle-schoolers,” Scott said.
“But we know back in our revolution, we had 12-year-olds fighting in our revolution, and for many of these kids, depending on where they’re coming from, they could be coming from other countries and be highly trained as warriors who will meet up with their group here and actually rise up against us as Americans,” she continued.
Scott, who is also a lobbyist for The Family Leader conservative group, said enticing children to cross the border into the U.S. violated biblical principles, because doing so encouraged them to break the law.
She didn’t specify any Bible verses that outlined those principles, but Leviticus 19:34 directly contradicts her assertion: “The foreigner residing among you must be treated as your native-born. Love them as yourself.”
Her guest, Mary Huls, president of the Clear Lake, Texas, Tea Party, agreed, saying children – who she could not bring herself to describe as people – were trained as terrorists in their countries of origin.
“We do know that Hamas and Hezbollah run several training camps in Venezuela and other South American countries, and they are training these young – these youths – beginning as early as 8 or 9 years old through the MS13 gangs,” Huls said. “They are being trained as warriors, you’re absolutely right.”..............

Texas gun club named after Black Panthers leader holds armed march against ‘killer cops’


A Texas gun club named after one of the founders of the Black Panthers Party marched in Dallas on Wednesday to protest against police brutality, KTXA-TV reported.
Around two dozen members of the Huey P. Newton Gun Club carried rifles and red, black and green flags as they marched through the city’s south side, sometimes chanting in support of Michael Brown, the 18-year-old man killed by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, on Aug. 9.
“If they don’t get these killer cops and corrupt cops under control,” a member identifying himself as Commander Drew X was quoted as saying. “What happened in Ferguson is going to be nationwide.”
The club’s leader, Huey Freeman, said Wednesday’s march would be the first step in a campaign of “civilian patrols” through the area. The state’s open carry law allows “long gun” owners to display them unless it is meant “to cause alarm.”
“We believe we can police ourselves and bring security to our community, ridding our community of black-on-black crime, violence, police terror, etcetera, etcetera,” Freeman told KXAS-TV.
Another participant, Priest Brazier, said it took the protests that followed Brown’s shooting to bring the issue of police violence into the public arena.
“If the protests hadn’t happened, you wouldn’t have the attorney general, and all these people, the FBI and the federal people looking at the situation,” said Brazier, a member of the New Black Panther Party. “They normally would have ignored it.”
Huey Newton formed the original Black Panther Party with Bobby Seale in 1966. The group instituted a “ten-point program” for helping the African-American community, which included an end to police brutality, upgraded housing for Black communities, and free healthcare for both Black and “oppressed” communities, among other features. He was shot and killed in August 1989 in Oakland, where his career as an activist began...............

CO Republican: Fracking is okay, it’s natural for water to burn. ‘Indians’ used it for warmth.


A Colorado Republican state senator justified the practice of hydraulic fracturing — commonly known as “fracking” — by saying that the presence of burnable amounts of methane gas in drinking water is a perfectly natural phenomenon. In fact, he said, the “Indians” used it for “warmth in the wintertime” many years ago.
According to Right Wing Watch, state Sen. Randy Baumgardner (R) was speaking to former Navy chaplain turned conservative activist Gordon “Dr. Chaps” Klingenschmitt at the Western Conservative Summit in Denver.
Klingenschmitt recorded the interview for his daily “Pray in Jesus’ Name” show. He asked the Republican what he thought of the government trying to “pick and choose” and prioritize some forms of energy over others.
“I’ve been doing a lot of the fracking seminars,” said Baumgardner, “and if people haven’t been, then they really don’t understand it.”
“They talk about methane in the water and this, that, and the other,” Baumgardner went on, “but if you go back in history and look at how the Indians traveled, they traveled to the ‘burning waters.’ And that was methane in the waters and that was for warmth in the wintertime.”
“So a lot of people,” he said, “if they just trace back the history, they’ll know how a lot of this is propaganda.”

#Douchebag Ted Nugent Uses Racial Slur For Japanese While Speaking In Front Of Tea Party Crowd


During an appearance at a Tea Party event in Wyoming, National Rifle Association board member Ted Nugent used the derogatory term "Japs" while discussing how he believes America has changed since World War II.
Nugent, who is also a spokesman for Outdoor Channel, appeared alongside birther and former Fox News contributor Maj. Gen. (ret.) Paul Vallely at an August 2 rally hosted by the Big Horn Basin Tea Party. At the end of the event, Nugent and Vallely were deputized by the local sheriff.
During his remarks Nugent described his belief that the government has "turned on us" since the United States defeated the "Japs and Nazis" in World War II, citing his claim of "ranchers being arrested because of gerbils on their range." The term "Jap" is universally recognized as a racial slur since its derogatory usage during World War II.

NUGENT: I know I'm speaking your language. I know nothing I've said surprises you except maybe the insane depth of this self-inflicted curse of apathy. We have bent over since World War II because we couldn't believe that good -- the universally celebrated good of America crushed the universally understood evil of Japs and Nazis. We couldn't believe that that government that represented us in good over evil could possibly turn on us. They've turned on us. They've literally turned on us, ranchers being arrested because of gerbils on their range or some families arrested because the EPA claims they are building a barn on a wetland where for 200 years of satellite documentation, no moisture.
During his half-hour presentation, Nugent made other inflammatory comments.
Referencing the sacrifices of U.S. soldiers during war, Nugent claimed that soldiers' "buddies came home in bags because the president violates his oath on an hourly basis.".................
