Of course, being racist pieces of shit isn’t new for Republicans. Gohmert in particular has spent years promoting the racist lie about immigrants spreading disease, yet few asylum-seekers actually being allowed to seek safety in the U.S. are turning down the COVID-19 vaccine. Gohmert also referred to unaccompanied children arriving to the southern border in 2014 as an “invasion,” adding that “we don’t know what diseases they’re bringing in.” We do know that Gohmert tested positive for COVID-19 in July 2020. We currently don’t know if he’s vaccinated.
“The letter does not specify what Biden should do to protect the border,” Houston Chronicle reports, so fucking perfectly summing up what Republicans bring to the table (or don’t bring to the table) when it comes to immigration. Other than mass deportation, Republicans have no solutions for anything. Scratch that: Republicans also want to indefinitely wall off our asylum system, which no decent Democrat should ever, ever help them do. Yet a number of Senate Democrats including Kyrsten Sinema, Joe Manchin, and Maggie Hassan may just do that.
Cruz had gone onto the right-wing Mark Levin Show to falsely claim “it is an invasion we’re seeing” at the southern border. The junior senator’s remark was no fluke: He posted a clip of his appearance to his personal Twitter account two times in the days after.
“Just days after a racist killed 10 people in Buffalo warning about a white nationalist conspiracy theory about a migrant ‘invasion,’ @tedcruz echoes that very same racist fiction,” America’s Voice Political Director Zachary Mueller initially noted following the appearance. Mueller has steadily tracked racist rhetoric spewed by Congressional Republicans, including Elise Stefanik’s now-infamous advertising echoing racist replacement theory.
Cruz promoted his radio show appearance to his personal account but has uncharacteristically gone silent following the horrific Uvalde shooting that has stolen the lives of 19 schoolchildren and their teacher. He's not in mourning or being respectful, because he's incapable of being respectful. He’s not heartbroken because as of publishing date still plans to attend the NRA’s convention (but also because he’s incapable of human emotion). He's hoping we all just move on quickly, and forget.
