GOP Rep Wants to 'Lovingly and Compassionately' Send Children Back to the Horrific Violence They're Fleeing

GOP Rep Wants to 'Lovingly and Compassionately' Send Children Back to the Horrific Violence They're Fleeing
A CNN poll taken last February found that 55 percent of all women — and, crucially for the senior-dependent GOP, 64 percent of women over 50 — said that Republicans just don't understand women. The Republican response to their "woman problem" has been strictly cosmetic in nature, and hinges on the assumption that if they can just express their positions in "feeling" words rather than "thinking" words, all will be right in GOP-Land. No where is this more apparent than the "emotional" support of a House Bill that will quickly deport border children right back to the violence they're fleeing.

Video: VA Town Disturbingly Readies the Torches and Pitchforks for a Proposal to Help Refugees

Video: VA Town Disturbingly Readies the Torches and Pitchforks for a Proposal to Help Refugees
A town hall meeting in Lawrenceville, Virginia, revealed loud and clear the people's honest feelings about the prospect of housing young refugees from Central America in an abandoned college campus: "We don't want you here." The deal, which was signed by the federal government, was attacked viciously from the townspeople and filmed by the "Story of America" series. The video — after the jump — is disturbing, both for its proud racism and the boisterous manner in which that hate is expressed and ultimately cheered. Sometimes in the name of Jesus.
