Immigration John McCain Super Stupid Syria

Department of Derp: John McCain is an Illegal Immigrant!

This is easily the dumbest thing I’ve read since the last time I read a quote from Louie Gohmert.

On Tuesday, the Tea Party website ‘Tea Party Nation’ put out an article that labeled Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) an “illegal immigrant” because he had sneaked into Syria to visit rebels fighting against the Bashar al-Assad regime. Although the White House was aware of McCain’s Syrian visit, the article indicated that his visit was virtually the same as undocumented immigration. It also noted that McCain’s humanitarian support for rebels could be attributed to his lack of intelligence, and Democratic turnout for his unsurprising win in the Arizona Senate race.

Crossing the border into Syria to visit rebel leaders is just like being an illegal immigrant, because of course it is.

I have no idea what Tea Party Nation was seeking to accomplish with this idiotic comparison, but I’m sure it has something to do with (opposing) Republican outreach. I suppose the idea is that John McCain is somehow a hypocrite for supporting immigration reform while visiting Syria without the sanction of the government. A government no longer recognized by the world community as legitimate. Like most Tea Party endeavors, you can’t trust them to think the whole thing through.

It may require surgery to remove my palm from my face.

    When I first saw the headline, I thought they were resurrecting the “He was born in the Panama Canal Zone” meme.

    This is even dumber.

      Me too.
      I’m at a loss as to who Gohmert appeals to, even in Texas.
      Can you imagine this Goober representing a state or country on a world stage?

    I’m not sure the Tea Party Nation people realize that words have actual definitions.
