Judson Phillips, the leader of Tea Party Nation and a major league wingnut, went on Newsmax TV and said that Republicans should shut down the government if it tries to treat non-American medical personnel who contract the Ebola virus in Africa.
Claiming that last year’s government shutdown helped Republicans, Phillips said that Republicans in Congress should be ready to shut down the government if President Obama takes executive action to prevent the deportation of some undocumented immigrants living in the U.S., or if he brings “non-American Ebola patients to this country.”
Of course, because if they’re not Americans they aren’t humans and we shouldn’t give a shit about them, amirite? Very “Christian” of you, Mr. Phillips. I don’t recall Jesus refusing to heal “foreign” lepers, do you?
