Mo Brooks: Dems Use 'Sexual Exploitation,' 'Racial Division' & 'Class Warfare' To Get Votes

Last week, Alabama Republican Rep. Mo Brooks stopped by the Federation for American Immigration Reform’s radio row event in Washington to speak with home-state talk radio host Matt Murphy. The two were discussing the postal worker who flew a gyrocopter onto the White House lawn to protest the influence of money in politics, which got Brooks to talking about efforts to overturn the Supreme Court’s Citizens United ruling.

Attempts to overturn the 2010 decision, Brooks said, are in fact a Democratic plot to “engage in class warfare” in order to “get votes,” much like the way that Democrats will “resort to racial division” or “resort to sexual exploitation if that will help them get votes.”

“To the credit of the Democrats, when they get involved in political fights, they fight to win and it’s no holds barred,” he said. “They will resort to racial division if that will help them get votes. They will resort to sexual exploitation if that will help them get votes. And in this instance, if they can engage in class warfare, even if it is a suppression of the speech guaranteed by the First Amendment, if that will get them votes, they will do it. So, that’s what you’re saying with Hillary Clinton.”

Last year, Brooks famously accused Democrats of waging a “war on whites.”

Rep. Mo Brooks: Obama Should Face Jail Time For Immigration Actions

In an appearance on “The Steve Malzberg Show” today, Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Ala., continued his crusade against President Obama’s executive actions on immigration reform, calling on the federal courts to find that the president’s actions violated the law.

If Obama defies such a ruling, Brooks said, then Congress should pass a contempt citation against the president for his “reckless conduct” and demand that he comply with the court’s decision.

He said that Obama would then drop his executive actions since he, like Richard Nixon, doesn’t want to “incur the wrath that comes with a contempt citation with potential fines and jail time.”

“Ultimately that’s the kind of power a federal court has to force the president of the United States to obey our immigration laws,” he added.

The congressman once told Slate that Obama should face five years in prison for encouraging illegal immigration:

Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks, one of the lower chamber’s most energetic critics of comprehensive immigration reform, suggested that the president’s move could potentially be grounds for impeachment, or even prison time.

Brooks said there is a federal statute (“I don’t have the citation for it at the tip of my tongue”) making it a felony to aid, abet, or entice a foreigner to illegally enter the U.S.

“At some point, you have to evaluate whether the president’s conduct aids or abets, encourages, or entices foreigners to unlawfully cross into the United States of America,” he continued. “That has a five-year in-jail penalty associated with it.”

Mo Brooks: Immigration Action Will Lead To 'Insolvency And Bankruptcy Of Our Government'

Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Ala., said last week that President Obama’s executive action granting temporary deportation relief to some undocumented immigrants was part of a plot to “dilute the vote of American citizens by bringing in millions of foreigners who are going to be dependent on welfare and handouts and hence will be dependent on the Democratic Party for their livelihoods.”

Brooks told talk show host Dale Jackson that if not for the immigration reform bill signed by President Reagan in 1986, “Barack Obama probably would not have been president” and “Obamacare probably never would have passed.” (Rep. Steve King made similar remarks earlier this year.)

“And of course ultimately what’s going to happen is insolvency and bankruptcy of our government because we cannot continue this welfare path that we are on,” he added.

This is amnesty, and the long-term goal of this president is to reverse the will of the American people as evidenced in 2010 and 2014 and to dilute the vote of American citizens by bringing in millions of foreigners who are going to be dependent on welfare and handouts and hence will be dependent on the Democratic Party for their livelihoods. That’s what this is about, is to change elections five, 10, 15, 20 years from now. But for the bipartisan amnesty bill of 1986, Barack Obama probably would not have been president, and they know that. Obamacare probably never would have passed, and they know that.

And they don’t want to take that chance in future elections, so they see this as planting a seed that over many, many years will ripen into many Democratic Party victories. And of course ultimately what’s going to happen is insolvency and bankruptcy of our government because we cannot continue this welfare path that we are on.

Five Of The Craziest Conservative Reactions To Obama's Immigration Action: Impeachment, Race War & Rebellion

In this special edition of Paranoia-Rama, we look at five of the most incendiary and unhinged responses from our friends on the Radical Right to President Obama’s announcement that he would grant temporary deportation relief to some unauthorized immigrants and his speech last night laying out his plan.

Rep. Mo Brooks: Immigration A Plot To 'Dilute The Voting Power Of Americans'

In an interview with a home-state radio station yesterday, Republican Rep. Mo Brooks of Alabama warned that immigration reform is a “political power play” by Democrats to “dilute the voting power of Americans who are alive and voting today” and “change America as we know it.”

Brooks made the remarks in an interview with Dale Jackson of WVNN.

Brooks attacked Rep. Luis Gutierrez of Illinois, who has been a leader in the push for comprehensive immigration reform. “He is open borders, he would just as soon the United States be coopted by Mexico and the other Central American countries,” Brooks said.

“He is clearly front and center among the Democrats who believe that this is a tremendous voter registration drive that they can use to dilute the voting influence of today’s American citizenry. So that’s where he’s coming from. It’s a pure political power play on his part to dilute the voting power of Americans who are alive and voting today.”

Brooks warned of “a mass migration from southern nations into the United States.”

“Once those folks are given amnesty and eventually put on a path to citizenship and eventually getting voting rights, plus having voting rights, plus having kids in the meantime who are immediately American citizens, all of that will build up more pressure on giving more pressure for giving more amnesty for more illegal aliens,” he warned. “And it will build up pressure for opening the borders so that there is no border on the south side of the United States of America, that anybody from Mexico, Central America or even South America can come in an expect to be given all the privileges of United States citizens.”

“That’s where these guys are coming from. They will change America as we know it. They will change the nation that for seven decades has been the greatest nation in world history,” he said.

Paranoia-Rama: Democratic War On Whites, Cliven Bundy's Divine Standoff & Ebola vs Gays

RWW’s Paranoia-Rama takes a look at five of the week’s most absurd conspiracy theories from the Right.

Anti-gay activists seem rather convinced that they are facing Nazi and Jim Crow-style oppression, while one Religious Right commentator hopes that Ebola will free them from gay persecution by “solving America’s problem” with homosexuality.

5) Gays Are The New Bull Connor

The Religious Right campaign to claim that they are facing horrendous, unspeakable persecution keeps getting more pathetic this week.

RedState blogger Erick Erickson, for one, is pretty sure that gay rights advocates want to transform America into a “society bent on suicide,” and have apparently adopted “the tactics of Bull Connor” to push their destructive agenda.

After channeling Bryan Fischer and Brian Brown in framing Christians in the U.S. as the victims of a new Jim Crow, the Georgia-based activist went on to say that American Christians will face dire persecution at the hands of gays: “a faith that survived its followers being used as torches to light the streets of Rome will survive a modern age hell bent on ruthlessly stamping it out.”

That wasn’t the only sad persecution article written this week, with Scott Lively writing that gays are treating Religious Right activists the same way the Nazis oppressed the Jews, and Bill Muehlenberg warning that “the cult of homosexualism” is the “coming world religion which will enslave the entire world.”

4) Michelle Nunn (And George H.W. Bush!) In With Islamic Terrorists

The pro-GOP group Ending Spending Action Fund is running a TV ad in Georgia blasting U.S. Senate candidate Michelle Nunn for leading a foundation that “directed grants to an Islamic group tied to radical terrorists.”

The advertisement refers to her time as CEO of the Points of Light Foundation, a group founded by former president George H.W. Bush.

Before Nunn even took the job, Points of Light ran a business called MissionFish that “allowed eBay sellers and buyers to direct all or part of the proceeds from a transaction to their favorite charity,” according to PolitiFact. One of the approximately 20,000 nonprofit organizations that eBay users directed proceeds to was Islamic Relief USA, a charitable group, which over a period of several years received $33,000 through the program.

Based on that damning evidence, Ending Spending’s advertisement accused Nunn of “directing grants to an Islamic group tied to radical terrorists.”

Since Bush founded the Points of Light Foundation, we wonder if Ending Spending believes the former president is also implicated in terrorism.

3) Democrats Waging ‘War On Whites’

Rep. Mo Brooks thinks the reason the GOP has a problem attracting Latino voters is because of “the war on whites that’s being launched by the Democratic Party.” Democrats, the Alabama congressman claims, tell people of color “that whites hate everybody else” in order to win their votes.

Just in case you thought that might have been a gaffe, Brooks later claimed that federal law is discriminatory against white people: “What is the one race that can be discriminated against?… All whites.”

2) God Directed Cliven Bundy To Save America

The Obama administration was just about to start taking away everyone’s guns and forming a police state until Cliven Bundy stopped them! Well, that’s what happened according to Cliven Bundy, who recently told a meeting of the Independent American Party, a Third Party to the right of the GOP, that his standoff with the federal government over his refusal to pay grazing fees was part of a spiritual battle against government tyranny:

"If the standoff with the Bundys was wrong, would the Lord have been with us?" Bundy asked, noting that no one was killed as tensions escalated. "Could those people that stood without fear and went through that spiritual experience … have done that without the Lord being there? No they couldn't."

Bundy also cited personal inspiration from God in establishing his course of action.

"The Lord told me ... if (the sheriff doesn't) take away these arms (from federal agents), we the people will have to face these arms in a civil war. He said, 'This is your chance to straighten this thing up,'" Bundy said.

In a radio interview this week, Bundy was even more explicit: “I have no idea what God wants done, but he did inspire me to have the sheriffs across the United States take away these weapons, disarm these bureaucracies, and he also gave me a little inspiration on what would happen if they didn’t do that…. It was indicated that ‘this is our chance, America, to straighten this problem up. If we don’t solve this problem this way, we will face these same guns in a civil war.’”

1) Ebola: Good Or Bad?

Rick Wiles is afraid that the Ebola outbreak will not only leave people dead, but will also be used by President Obama to create an oppressive, totalitarian government. Obama, Wiles believes, may even try to spread Ebola by pushing defective vaccines.

But maybe, maybe, Ebola isn’t so bad, Wiles explains. The End Times radio host said on one program that “Ebola could solve America’s problems with atheism, homosexuality, sexual promiscuity, pornography and abortion.”

Mo Brooks Doubles Down On 'War On Whites'

In an interview with Steve Malzberg on Newsmax today, Alabama Republican congressman Mo Brooks said he “absolutely” stands by his recent complaint that Democrats are staging a “war on whites.”

“Look at what the Democrats do on a daily basis,” Brooks said. “They appeal to specific racial groups, saying we will protect you, that racial group. And who are they talking about protecting them from? They’re talking about protecting them from Republicans. But at the same time, what do they say about those Republicans? That they’re whites.”

Later in the interview, Malzberg and Brooks agreed that President Obama is trying to “divide” Americans based on race. You can watch the whole interview here:

Rep. Mo Brooks Suggests Democrats Might Start A War In 2014 To Distract Voters From Obamacare

Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) appeared on "The Steve Malzberg Show" yesterday to reiterate his warning to all Americans not to use the federal government's healthcare website because of cyber-security problems and the risk of identity theft.

During the course of the discussion, Brooks was asked about the possibility of Congress reaching any sort of budget deal, to which Brooks responded by asserting that if one is not reached, it will be because the Democrats have intentionally orchestrated a government shutdown in an attempt to distract voters from "the calamity known as Obamacare" heading into the 2014 elections ... or maybe even started a war.

Brook declared that 2014 is "going to be a disaster and so the Democrats, they need a shutdown, they need something dramatic - perhaps a war - something that will deflect public attention from how bad this socialized medicine system is, this scheme that they have put forth":
