During an immigration hearing by the House Judiciary Committee Thursday, Democratic Rep. Luis Gutierrez stunk up the joint in an unprecedented way.
The Illinois politician claimed it’s a contradiction to espouse border security while simultaneously celebrating the goodness of Christmas or Christianity, and that Donald Trump — had he been President of Egypt, I guess — would’ve essentially taken part in killing baby Jesus.
What the $%[email protected]?
Later, after Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen tried to respond to Gutierrez’s allegation that she was a liar, the crackpot stormed out of the room.
Here’s his spiel:
“It is repugnant to me, and astonishing to me, that during Christmas — I like to call them the “Holiday Seasons” to be inclusive — but during Christmas, because the majority always wants to just call it Christmas…that during Christmas, a time in which we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ — a Jesus Christ who had to flee for his life with Mary and Joseph — thank God there wasn’t a wall that stopped him from seeking refuge in Egypt. Thank God that wall wasn’t there, thank God there wasn’t any administration like this, or he would have perished on the 28th, on the Day of the Innocents, when Herod ordered the murder of every child under two years of age.”
Do other “holidays” celebrate the birth of Christ?
Trump is only against illegal immigration; why would Jesus have been trying to sneak in illegally?
Also, Obama’s catch-and-release would’ve killed Jesus, in that scenario. Under Trump, the family would’ve been detained. Safe and sound.
Gutierrez then riled Kirstjen:
“Maybe I haven’t gone a lot to Bible school, but I know that part. Thank God. Shame on everybody that separates children and allows them to stay at the other side of the border fearing death, fearing hunger, fearing sickness. Shame on us for wearing a badge of Christianity during Christmas, and allow the secretary to come here and lie.”
Shame on us for having a border?
Beyond that, I have so much commentary that none of you would have time for it. I’m sure your own internal analysis is fantastic.
I’ll just say this, in lieu of taking up the rest of your week:
As for a functional border, would Obama have also killed Jesus? Would Nancy Pelosi have? What about Chuck Schumer? They all supported 2006’s “Fence Act” (here).
How about Bill Clinton? He demanded that illegal immigration be stopped (here).
As for family separation, Kirstjen replied, “We never had a policy for family separation. I am happy to walk the gentleman through it again. A policy of family separation would mean that any family that I encountered in the interior, I would separate. It would mean that any family I found at a port of entry, I would separate. It would mean every single family that I found illegally crossing, we would separate. We did none of those. What we did do is uphold the laws that congress has passed and we prosecuted those who choose to come here illegally.”
She’s right about the law. “Family separation” is a product of the left-wing 9th Circuit of Appeals, a Democratically-controlled Congress, and the Clinton Administration circa 1997 (here).
Gutierrez stormed out.
For a smidge more evidence toward the fiery Democrat’s conviction of committing Gargantuan Gooberhood, consider this: In June, he accused President Trump of using rhetoric for political gain (here). The tale of the pot and the kettle.
And thus concludes the tale of the nut.
No word yet on whether Luis — in order to practice what he preaches — has had his front door removed.
