Rep. Virgil Goode (R-Prester John's kingdom) has taken to the pages of USA Today to showcase his particular version of "damage control." It's a brand new year when people may be ready to forget his jihad against Muslim Rep. Keith Ellison and Muslim immigration in general. What's Goode write?
Let us remember that we were not attacked by a nation on 9/11; we were attacked by extremists who acted in the name of the Islamic religion. I believe that if we do not stop illegal immigration totally, reduce legal immigration and end diversity visas, we are leaving ourselves vulnerable to infiltration by those who want to mold the United States into the image of their religion, rather than working within the Judeo-Christian principles that have made us a beacon for freedom-loving persons around the world.
OK. Look. As Ronald Bailey (who has the pleasure of being represented by Goode in Congress) pointed out, Rep. Ellison is not an immigrant. He's a black Minnesotan who converted to Islam. And it's worth pointing out that this convert to Islamism has avoided helping terrorists infiltrate the U.S. or plant bombs in the IDS Center. He's, you know, assimiliated into the political mainstream. But he wants to make a token nod to his faith as he's sworn in, so let's get ready to send a surge of troops in to democratize Minneapolis or something.
