All The World's A Twilight Zone Episode.


When blowardism met fascism.

Head on:

Two Boston brothers accused of urinating on and beating a homeless Mexican man and telling police "Donald Trump was right: All these illegals need to be deported," were sentenced to prison on Monday, prosecutors said.

Scott Leader, 38, and Steve Leader, 30, had previously pleaded guilty to indictments charging them with causing bodily injury while committing a civil rights violation, as well as assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, among other charges.

The Leaders were arrested on Aug. 19 on suspicion of beating Rodriguez, then 58, as he slept in a subway station. The men told police they targeted their victim because they believed he was an illegal immigrant.

The victim, Guillermo Rodriguez, said in a statement that he was in fact a permanent resident.

"I came to this country many years ago and worked hard in the farm fields to provide produce to people here. I actually became a permanent resident of this country years ago, although if I had been undocumented I still would not have deserved to be beaten this way," Rodriguez said...

There really are real life consequences for all this demonization-backed dealism that has absolutely nothing to do with bankrupt casinos, rapacious golf courses, shagadelic condo towers, and/or bottled water wrapped in purloined sirloin.

Never been a fan of our neighbours down south. Trump is an Assclown! The one good thing about his campaign is that it shows us the true values of the country.
As a believer in free speech, I like to see where the crazies are. If there are too many, we need to educate. Good luck with that, I suppose.

I do expect to see more of these actions as Trump ramps up his campaign. If Trump is elected and actually tries to "round up" 11M people we can look forward to some real gun action. the line ups coming North for political refugee status will look like the line ups used to going south for the Christmas shopping.
