Appearing to eat earwax on CSPAN was just the beginning.
It turns out Miami Democrat Joe Garcia has disturbing things coming out of his mouth too.
In a Tuesday night Google Hangout about immigration, the congressman said that communism works, and “we’ve proved it,” according to the Miami Herald Blog.
“When you attract people, you are the dominant culture that people want to emulate and copy what you’re doing because it works. And in America, we are doing a huge disservice to ourselves by not understanding how powerful of a driver in the economy an immigration system that works can be — and continues to be — and by not having an immigration system that works. Let me give you an example, the kind of money we’ve poured in: So the most dangerous — sorry, the safest city in America is El Paso, Texas. It happens to be across the border from the most dangerous city in the Americas, which is Juarez. Right? And two of the safest cities in America, two of them are on the border with Mexico. And of course, the reason is we’ve proved that communism works. If you give everybody a good, government job, there’s no crime. But that isn’t what we should be doing on the border. The kind of money we’ve poured into it, and we’re having diminishing returns. So while we’re doing — we’re spending all of this money here, we have border problems in Puerto Rico. We haven’t been able to set up a system that’s safe there. People are finding alternative routes. The opportunity to get this right and the mistake that Republicans make — and I say Republicans because it’s Republicans right now — I’m known to say that Democrats were also possessed by xenophobia in 2008 and particularly after 9/11 and the economic crisis, but today we’re in a much better place as a party. And the problem that Republicans have is that they’re fighting a battle they cannot win.”
Garcia reacted after political action committee America Rising PAC posted the comments in a YouTube video, the Herald reported.
“This is an absurdity,” he said. “Accusing the son of Cuban immigrants of believing in communism is just ridiculous.”
And right on cue for a slick-talking liberal, he followed up the feigned outrage by doubling down on the statement.
When asked if he could have used better language to get his point across Garcia said, “They would post the video anyway … I’ll continue to say it.”
Democrats are so darned predictable these days.
