Hillary Channels Jesus
Hillary "We Are The President" Clinton added yet another profession to her resume yesterday. Move over Tammy Faye Baker, now you can count Televangelist among the talents of the former First Lady and current "Senior" Senator from the State of New York.
Joining advocates of illegal immigration in protest of legislation that would change illegal immigration from a civil offense to a felony, Hillary invoked scripture to bolster her position:
It is certainly not in keeping with my understanding of the Scriptures because this bill would literally criminalize the Good Samaritan and probably even Jesus himself.Ian has the Video. Whiskey, Tango, Foxtrot. Over.
Criminalize Jesus? I thought that was the domain of the ACLU. From the video footage, Hillary looks about as comfortable discussing scripture as I am discussing particle physics.
Words mean things, Hillary. Illegal immigration is just that - illegal. You can call it undocumented. You can call it migrant. Call it what you will, its still illegal. Perhaps you would prefer we take the ideas floating around in Maywood, California and implement them on a national level. Yeah, that's it. Let's just stop enforcing laws which offend illegal aliens.
Principal among those "American" values you claim to support is a respect for the rule of law. This includes American citizens and those who seek to live in this great nation. Your attempt to justify your policy waffle in scriptural religiosity is just another demonstration of the lengths to which you will go to coddle votes.
I will not here debate the flaws in your scriptural argument because I refuse to have an ecclesiastical argument with an unarmed person.
Here endeth the lesson.
