The liberal media, or I should say media, to avoid being redundant, is, as usual, getting it all wrong when it comes to immigration. Its latest stunt, which, I’m sad to say, Raw Story’s own Amanda Marcotte took part in, involves Adam Kwasman, an Arizona financial consultant and Tea Partier who is seeking the congressional seat of Arizona’s 1st Congressional District. Like any true patriot, Kwasman has taken action to defend our nation from the largest threat we face today: Central American immigrant children apprehended at the border. Inspired, no doubt, by the righteous protestors in Murrieta, California, who blocked a bus carrying undocumented detainees, shouting thoughtful chants (USA! USA!) and holding up clever signs (Return to Sender), Kwasman put his body on the line to demonstrate for his cause in Oracle, AZ.
Spotting a bus of immigrant children, the ever-vigilant Kwasman tweeted: “Bus coming in. This is not compassion. This is the abrogation of the rule of law.”
So shrewd is Kwasman that he was able to read the facial expression of these alleged Central American children. As he explained to KPNX-TV Channel 12 in Phoenix, “I was able to actually see some of the children on the buses, and the fear on their faces.”
But, as know-it-all reporter Brahm Resnik couldn’t wait to point out, Kwasman didn’t have the story exactly right: ”You know that was a bus with YMCA kids?” asked Resnik. To which Kwasman responded, “They were sad too.” I’m not sure if his response was at all related to the point made by Resnik. I think Kwasman was still processing the trauma of seeing the fearful and sad faces of innocent children on their way back from a day of inhumanely insufferable trust falls and Simon Says games.
