RNC Official: Child Refugees Might Be ‘Highly Trained Warriors’

It’s incredible the lengths that the right is willing to go to in demonizing the thousands of child refugees who have fled Central America for the United States. They’re bringing ebola! (A virus that does not exist in their countries) They’re drug dealers and gangbangers! Now Tamara Scott, a member of the Republican National Committee from Iowa, adds her spin:

For us just to open our borders it’s chaos we don’t know orderly who’s coming in, who’s not. When we see these kids, you and I think young kids, we think maybe 12-year-olds, maybe even…middle-schoolers. 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. We have no idea what’s coming through our borders, but I would say biblically it’s not a Christian nation when you entice people to do wrong.

I have absolutely no idea what the hell that last sentence could possibly mean. But yes, I’m sure they’re terrorists. Or ninjas. Or zombies. Or vampires. Or whatever scary boogeyman they feel the need to invoke to make people terrified of a few thousand desperately poor and downtrodden children who need our help. Warriors? Seriously? Does she think they’re going to all join together once they get settled in the US and attack the White House? Wait, that would make them Tea Partiers and patriots if they did that.

I don’t know how these people can sleep at night, I really don’t.
