In a speech at the convention where he proposed the resolution, Larsen told those willing to listen that illegal immigrants “hate American people” and “are determined to destroy this country, and there is nothing they won’t do.” They are apparently in control of the media, and working in tandem with Democrats to “destroy Christian America” and replace it with “a godless new world order – and that is not extremism, that is fact.” It is, of course, extremism, not fact, and that Larsen felt the need to explicitly claim the opposite should perhaps have been a clue. At the end of his speech, Larsen apparently began crying, saying illegal immigrants were trying to bring about the destruction of the U.S. “by self invasion.”
According to his resolution, in order for Satan to establish his “New World Order and destroy the freedom of all people, as predicted in the Scriptures, he must first destroy the U.S.” The resolution then proposed to “prevent the destruction of the U.S. by stealth invasion” by closing the borders, thus trapping everyone in there with Larsen.
Diagnosis: This is not an exception. The voter base for a significant proportion of wingnut politicians consists precisely of people who respond to such public displays of deranged lunacy by voting for them. We haven’t heard about Larsen since this, but there are plenty of likeminded people out there running for office and receiving the support from morons.
