Conservative whackjob and closet Ayn Rand enthusiast Paul Ryan was in Florida last Friday during a book-signing for his new book “The Way Forward” when he was confronted by DREAMers – undocumented immigrants who were brought to America as children and whom Paul Ryan wants to kick out of the country, the United States, the only home these people have ever known.
In the usual teapublican fashion he brushed them off as less than worthy of his time, ignored their pleas and requests for an answer as to why he would want to deport people who have done no wrong, and told them to “read the book.” Apparently that will explain what the void is that fills the cold depths of where his heart should be.
Asked of Ryan
A couple weeks ago you voted for defunding DACA. It would put me and my sister up for deportation. We just had a question — do you want to deport me and my sister?
The DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, is an Obama Administration policy that allows unaccompanied undocumented immigrants who came here as minors to continue staying here in the United States, renewable in two year increments. The boorish cretin that he is, Ryan refused to engage anyone who would actually be affected by the repeal of any laws designed to help those of lesser means, since he has already benefited so richly from his many years of government assistance and now no longer needs it.
Well, I suppose Ryan has made it all the way to the top. He’s a darling star of teapublican party, building his platform on cutting out the very programs that got him where he was. Not one to pay it forward to people who were in his situation, he also firmly intends to shut out the possibility of anyone in any situation of hardship from ever progressing beyond their current station. In Ryan’s Murica it’s “Do as I say, not as I do.”
Unfortunately for Ryan no one was kicking undocumented immigrants out when George Romney moved to the States from Mexico. Instead of buttering up for that VP spot he could have gone it alone in 2012…
