This is not your grandparent’s Republican party. This batch is of a whole new breed. We have documented time and time again, the unbelievable attempts by the Republican Party to totally eliminate anyone whose priorities do not match theirs – whether it be Latinos, Muslims, women, Jews, Blacks, Gays or any other minority group. But never before have we seen a Republican congressman suggest shooting illegal immigrants from a helicopter.
His name is Virgil Peck, a Republican representative in Kansas. While debating funding for a bill that allows for shooting feral hogs from a helicopter as a way to control the hog population, Mr. Peck couldn’t help suggesting the use of this method to control the illegal immigration problem, saying;
It looks to me if shooting these immigrating feral Hogs works, maybe we have found a solution to our illegal immigration problem.
With pressure from his fellow Republicans to apologize, Peck issued the following statement;
My statements yesterday were regrettable. Please accept my apology.
How do these people get elected!? A United States Republican congressman publicly advocating shooting people?
Yea, this is definitely not your grandpa’s GOP!
