Crowd Applauds Woman Calling Immigrants 'Rats And Roaches'

Watch for the next Frank Luntz talking points to emerge from this.

The Republican party base is posing a serious problem for their 2016 election prospects, as you can see in this short video clip from the South Carolina Freedom Summit.

David Bossie, head of the Citizens United Foundation and organizer of this unruly mob, has a mother-in-law, and she really doesn't like immigrants.

Huffington Post:

During a focus group led by GOP pollster Frank Luntz at the South Carolina Freedom Summit, the mother-in-law of Citizens United president David Bossie compared immigrants to rats and roaches, to the delight of the audience. Bossie is the organizer of the summit, one in a series of cattle calls for GOP presidential hopefuls.

Asked by Luntz to give advice to the these candidates, she said:

One man, one vote. People are comin' in this country across the borders like rats and roaches in the wood pile. We've got a state like Minnesota that says it's not our business to check 'em out, we just register 'em. We've got to get control. That's what they need to know.
Her comments drew laughter, whistling, and applause. Afterwards, Luntz asked the audience if they would vote for Bossie's mother-in-law for president, which drew louder cheers and applause.

It really doesn't matter what kind of lipstick Republicans want to paint on the pig. It's still a pig, and they're still going to lose in 2016.
