is not “Would you lie to protect Jews when the Nazi jackboots are at the door?” but “Would you lie to protect Latino kids born and bred on US soil all their lives from GOP jackboots coming to exile them to a foreign country for the crime of being born?” It’s a much more live possibility and something that no seriously prolife person should countenance for one second. Being born is what we are supposed to be all about, isn’t it?
Sure, it’s easy to laugh at clowns like this:
But this clown is taken with growing seriousness by a growing number of people who *love* that he wants to repeal the 14th Amendment as (I kid you not) “unconstitutional“. (Only the Second Amendment is inspired and inerrant Scripture. The 14th is Apocrypha.)
Indeed, a large portion of the GOP field are tripping over each other to endorse the cruelty of exiling kids for being born brown on American soil. And out there, well past the limits of sanity, some putative members of the Right now not only want to obliterate the constitutional order established after the Civil War, they also want to (again, I am not making this up) reinstitute slavery.And it’s all fueled and supported by a Frankenstein base of anti-Catholic kooks and bigots who supplement their naked racism with some good old fashioned fear and loathing of us Romanists. Why on earth would a Catholic make common cause with that?
This insane and evil changeling that has somehow taken the place of a once-noble political tradition cannot commit suicide fast enough. And no Catholic should touch it with a bargepole. It is our enemy, not our ally.
