The World has turned upside down according to the John Bircher-Senator Jefferson Beauregard Sessions. In addition to being obsessed with proving voter fraud, he has a rich history of awful conservative behavior. The Alabama Republican, Senator Sessions is the Senate's most extreme anti-immigration, anti-environment, anti-women, anti-veteran, anti-health care ideologue. He wants nothing but misery for the poor, the undocumented and women of all races and creeds. The Senator and his Confederate name are as far right as they come.

The hosts of Outnumbered included comedian Tom Shillue, who was the token male on the panel. Shillue joked that the message of Republicans should be we want more legal immigration while the Democrats want more illegal immigration. Thankfully, they have Kirsten Powers on the panel to infuse the group with a little reality. Conservative comedians aren't exactly funny, as they punch down, not up. Tom is no different.

She said the reason Tom's idea was a terrible one was because "that message has no connection to reality." She explains that the issue of immigration amnesty is not necessarily partisan as she holds the same views as the Wall Street Journal, which is very much like Reagan's amnesty. The Democrats, she explains, are very much behind a fairly arduous pathway to citizenship, and she prefers a far more lenient policy.

Harris Faulkner, the main voice of the group in this segment, seems to think a lot like Jeff Sessions. She's a Black Republican which is akin to a Black Mormon (like Mia Love from Utah) who ignores the inherent bigotry towards women and minorities that is practically institutionalized. A John Bircher like Sessions should be the last person she agrees with, but her checks are signed by Fox News, so she can justify being a race-traitor.

Session's views are the fringiest of the spectrum as he was (and probably still is) a big fan of Mr. "Let Me Tell You Something About The Negro" Cliven Bundy and a supporter of far-right militia groups. Let's hope the GOP takes their cues on immigration from this Confederate Senator, then they'll never occupy the White House again.
