Larry Pratt of Gun Owners of America once again touted his group’s staunch opposition to immigration reform yesterday, telling conservative talk show host Steve Deace that if a reform bill passes then “you can buh bye to your guns and buh bye to the rest of your freedom because this would be a country that had been californicated.”
Pratt claimed the Senate’s “scamnesty plan” would “bring in a gazillion Democrat voters” who will be mostly illiterate and “dependents.”
“They’re going to be probably just sitting around drawing welfare and voting Democrat,” Pratt said.
Pratt: The scamnesty plan is a plan to bring in a gazillion Democrat voters. The people who have not been given immigration status because they are a doctor or an engineer or some other skill that would be beneficial in the United States economy, but instead the people that would be given amnesty ultimately by this procedure that Rubio and company have been unleashing are those that don’t have even high school educations, are barely literate in their own Spanish language. I’m fluent in Spanish and I’ve spoken with some of these people and it’s amazing that they can’t even spell in Spanish when you have almost a completely phonetic language. I’ve taught people to read in Spanish if they could competently speak the language, I’ve taught them to read it’s that phonetic. Yet the people that would be coming in illiterate in Spanish, they’re going to be Democrats, they’re going to be dependents, they’re not going to be working at a nuclear reactor or a car factory, they’re going to be probably just sitting around drawing welfare and voting Democrat.
Deace: But don’t we have to pass this or we can’t win any more national elections? That’s what I keep being told.
Pratt: If we pass it we probably will guarantee not winning any more national elections.
Deace: There’s really only two conclusions to the Republicans peddling this: mass stupidity is one, the other is that they are just so tired of arguing with people like you and I about big government that they’ve just decided to go ahead and help the Democrats win. Pratt: And those are probably not mutually exclusive. What they’re doing then by bringing in this many Democrats, if they were to do that, means that by the time you get all of those folks into their citizenship status, our guess was about 2035, you can buh bye to your guns and buh bye to the rest of your freedom because this would be a country that had been californicated.
