Kansas Lawmaker Jokes About Shooting Illegal Immigrants

I think some people truly enjoy the taste of their size 11 shoe all the way in their mouth. They taste it so much that they should just season it up, put a napkin over their bosom, and they will have a meal.
One Kansas lawmaker joked that he may have found the solution to the illegal immigration problem plaguing his state. He seems to think it’s funny to compare immigrants to feral hogs by suggesting that we shoot them from planes.
Yes, he really said that in a Kansas House Appropriations Committee hearing.
The sad thing is that the committee wasn’t even talking about illegal immigration. They were debating funding to kill feral hogs that are a state nuisance. One way of killing the animals is to shoot them from planes to control the population. Graphic? Yes. But, I guess it’s a Kansas thing.
Enter state Rep. Virgil Peck, a Republican, who decides it is a great time to draw a hell of a line between feral piggies and illegal immigrants. He goes on to state:
“It looks like to me if shooting these immigrating feral hogs works maybe we have found a [solution] to our illegal immigration problem,” said Rep. Peck in the meeting.
Of course, Peck has taken some considerable heat from the comment. He defended himself by saying that’s how someone people from southeast Kansas talk and that he was joking.
This goes to show that you don’t have to dig far to find backwoods, asinine mentalities. Who in the hell ELECTS these people?? It makes complaints about Barack Obama seem pointless. I’m confused…
