From Fox News:

Rep. Stark Mocks Border Security Advocates: Who Are You Going to Kill Today?

June 29, 2010

A California congressman known for edgy sarcasm mocked an opponent of illegal immigration during a town hall meeting last week, asking, "Who are you going to kill today?" before the constituent, a self-identified Minuteman, posed his question.

Rep. Pete Stark, D-Calif., no stranger to controversy, mocked the idea that the borders are not secure when asked about the federal government’s lack of activity on border security.

"We can’t get enough Minutemen armed. We’d like to get all the Minutemen armed so they can stop shooting people here," Stark said.

Eventually, members of the audience urged Stark to offer a serious answer.

"If you knew anything about our borders, you would know that’s not the case. Our borders are quite secure, thank you," Stark said, drawing jeers.

Stark resumed his hostile act, asking the Minuteman what he would do to secure the border.

"I would send about about 25,000 troops for one thing and build a wall down so vehicles could not pass," the Minuteman said.

"How high and long would it be?" Stark asked.

"As high and as long as it takes," the Minuteman said, elicting [sic] cheers.

Stark said he would start a ladder company with the Minuteman if he designed the wall and doesn’t shoot the people coming over.

"But I’ve got to know how high the wall is and I’ll sell a whole lot of ladders for people who want to come," Stark said.

"This is a very serious matter and you’re sitting there making fun of it," the Minuteman responded.

"I don’t have to make fun of you sir, you do a fine job all by yourself," Stark said.

Stark made the comments last week at a town hall audience that included Steve Kemp, a member of the Golden State Minutemen, a group that opposes illegal immigrants. Kemp recorded the confrontation…

As the article goes on to note, and as we have often noted, the Congressman puts the Stark in stark raving mad.

As we noted back in 2007, Mr. Stark accused George Bush of sending troops to Iraq “to get their heads blown off for the President’s amusement”:

Rep. Pete Stark (D-CA) Outrageous Remarks on House Floor

“You don’t have money to fund the war or children. But you’re going to spend it to blow up innocent people if we can get enough kids to grow old enough for you to send to Iraq to get their heads blown off for the President’s amusement.”

Mr. Stark’s comments are a constant reminder of elevated political discourse that the Democrats so pride themselves on.

(Thanks to NickB for the heads up.)

    I heard the whole clip on Beck this morning. I can’t think of a sufficient “I’m so angry” cliche to cover how this made me feel. This guy better be thankful there are no Americans actually getting their heads blown off for MY amusement. Not advocating it, but I would find it fairly funny.

  2. Rusty Shackleford says:

    Pete Stark is effing r-worded.

  3. NoNeoCommies says:

    Hey Pete!
    How many people will be robbed, raped, or killed by the criminal invaders you defend in opposition to the laws of our land.
    Didn’t you swear something about defending our laws and constitution?

    • JohnMG says:

      He is indicative of what passes for leadership at the federal level. Can you imagine that he’s been in office since 1972. That’s 38 years and counting.

      And California keeps electing this douche bag!

  4. Petronius says:

    Plug the hole.

  5. proreason says:

    He’s not nuts. He is representative of how they think.

    He just chose not to lie this time. Apparently, he feels quite secure about his fiefdom.

    But he also illustrates a more profound point. Every element of the liberal “persona” is a lie:

    – They are the racists
    – They are the violent ones
    – They are the selfish ones
    – They are the angry ones
    – They are the ones opposed to civil rights

    The evidence for this is manifest.

    Don’t let them say that about you. Throw it back at them.

    • AcornsRNutz says:

      I would love to throw it back at em, but it seems to do no good. It’s like trying to convince a fish that its wet. Doesn’t know, doesn’t care and is incapable of comprehending anyway. Personally I think we ought to get all these goons and their believers to blow into straws to heat our homes. Still CO2, but definetly extremely sustainable.

    I have an idea about where to shove the ladders he wants to sell to illegals.
    They will fit too because he is one BIG A$$_OLE!!

  7. Haggar says:

    at 2:45 He wants to start a ladder company. This business was to supply ladders so the illegals could go over the wall.

    Is that not conspiring to commit a felony? Or at least conspiring to commit civil disobedience?

    Section 274 felonies under the federal Immigration and Nationality Act, INA 274A(a)(1)(A):
    * knowingly assists illegal aliens due to personal convictions.

    I might be hard to prove to felony level, but somehow I am sure it is contrary to his oath of office:

    The current oath was enacted in 1884:

    I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.

    I am having a time finding the exact criminal statues, but many “undocumented visitors” have certainly all committed civil crimes, and most probably have committed misdemeanor and felonies.

    Wow, Just Wow.

    This smarmy reprehensible sanctimonious prick! Who you gonna kill today? With me, you ignorant elitist traitor, that question would be rhetorical.

    Seldom have I ever gotten this angry over our “selected officials” and their “better than thou” crap attitudes, but I have to admire the questioner for his unbelievable restraint when faced by the mocking, smug G.A.F crap spewing out of this without a clue idiot.

    Pete Stark is the poster child for what is so broken about our Government. Stark represents himself, not the people, and he obviously could care less about their concerns. I found it ironic that he was inviting regular citizens to go to the border and DO THE JOB HE WAS ELECTED TO DO!!!! and then tell them to go pound sand when they asked why he wasn’t doing squat.

    Odd though, when anyone tries to secure the border on their own, suddenly there are plenty of law enforcement on scene to arrest them. And they do it with half mile long lines of illegals walking by, laughing, and giving them the finger.

    Stark should go to the top of the “GET OUT OF MY HOUSE” list, and I wish to God there was a process by which he could be taken to task for his appalling mind numbing lack of concern for his constituents. Recall, whatever. But he won’t, and his sneering posturing and his “kiss my ass” attitude on that video is exactly how the Democrats feel about the American People. He feels safe! He is under Pelosi’s umbrella of influence. Sadly, it’s true.

    There is so much more I would like to say, but of course, being a mere peon citizen, Stark could have me arrested for some nefarious “hate speech” or something….funny too, because his open and obvious hatred for his voters should qualify him for immediate removal, and to be thrown in prison for the next decade…..with hundreds of Mexican illegal gang members who managed to get across the border he insists is “doing just fine, thank you”.

    Stark….you need to look in the mirror. Seriously. Your thought process is impeded by the worst form of disease…power….and it is corroding your brain, and your ability to think like a person who was elected to protect this country. Abject hatred doesn’t begin to cover how I feel about dicks like you. This will be your last term though, thank God. Even though you don’t think so, but even liberals hate a turncoat self serving jerk like you. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. ok, ok, but you all know what I mean.
