Why I’m Not a Utah Republican

The Daily Herald (Central Utah) reported on the recent convention for Utah County’s Republicans:

Utah County Republicans ended their convention on Saturday by debating Satan’s influence on illegal immigrants.

Don Larsen, chairman of legislative District 65 for the Utah County Republican Party, had submitted a resolution warning that Satan’s minions want to eliminate national borders and do away with sovereignty.

Wait. It gets better:

Republican officials then allowed speakers to defend and refute the resolution. One speaker, who was identified as “Joe,” said illegal immigrants were Marxist and under the influence of the devil. Another, who declined to give her name to the Daily Herald, said illegal immigrants should not be allowed because “they are not going to become Republicans and stop flying the flag upside down. … If they want to be Americans, they should learn to speak English and fly their flag like we do.”

Senator Howard Stephenson, R-Draper, spoke against the resolution, saying Larsen, whom he called a “true patriot and a close friend,” was embarrassing the Republican Party.

“I agree with 95 percent of this resolution but it has some language that is divisive and not inspiring other people to its vision,” he said. “This only gives fodder to the liberal media to give negative attention to the Republican Party.”

I’m part of the liberal media! Finally.

But Larsen wasn’t done embarrassing himself. He closed the debate with this quotable line:

“If the Democrats take over the country, we will be dead, and we will have abortion and partial-birth abortion and the Republican Party will go into extinction,” [Larsen] said. “Nancy Pelosi and the ACLU would oppose this (resolution).”

Which makes sense. Because Clinton killed all of us. And abortions don’t happen at all under the current president. And when one party is in office, the other disappears forever into the night.

    Funny how nobody remembers that 9/11 happened under Bush’s watch. It was while Republicans were in power that “we all got killed.”

    And when one party is in office, the other disappears forever into the night.

    Funny how they think, just because they try to do it that way, everyone else will, too.
