GOP officials use white supremacist rhetoric in pushing Arizona governor to attack asylum-seekers



“An invasion would normally be referenced in terms of a nation-state invasion, but when you look at these numbers, I think it’s safe to say that this is an invasion,” the Associated Press (AP) reports state lawmaker Jake Hoffman said. If that name sounds familiar, you’re right: Hoffman was among the GOP officials who signed their name to one of the fake presidential election documents. Daily Kos’ Rebekah Sager wrote that when Hoffman was confronted with the fake document, the MF-er ran. Nothing but a top-notch group here.

It remains hilarious that Ken Cuccinelli is still trying to give the impression that he’s concerned about the rule of law, considering how much he flouted it through the very end of the previous administration. Despite both a federal judge and a nonpartisan Government Accountability Office finding he was unlawfully appointed to the previous administration, a shameless Ken refused to budge from office, using his final days in power to sabotage the incoming Biden administration. Ken doesn’t care about rule of anything, he’s just a racist piece of shit.

“When a picture of your claimed invasion looks like the average crowd at a Little League game, it’s not an invasion,” tweeted American Immigration Council policy counsel Aaron Reichlin-Melnick. “You’re just terrified of brown people.” He tweeted several other images of the supposed “invaders” claimed by the truly very strange Cuccinelli.



“The way I would do it is I would thumbprint them, give them food and water and put them back across the border,” Cuccinelli said according to the AP. These are terrible people. Ken, that is, not asylum-seekers. “So far in FY 2022, nearly half of the people encountered by Border Patrol in the Yuma, AZ sector were from Cuba, Nicaragua & Venezuela—many of whom are refugees fleeing persecution under those regimes,” tweeted Human Right First’s Kennji Kizuka. “And politicians in AZ want to use war powers against them??” Yes—while some of these politicians actively schemed to overturn American democracy.
