Tea Party Goes Wild As Child's Hopes Crushed

Never let it be said that tea party adherents give a damn about anyone but themselves.

Note to the 200 tea party attendees at Rep. Scott DesJarlais' town hall meeting: There's a special place in hell for you, which includes spending eternity wallowing in your hatred and ignorance. Every time you open your mouths, it heats up there.

Raw Story:

A Tennessee tea party Republican congressman told a frightened little girl at a town hall meeting on Thursday in Murfreesboro, TN that laws are laws and that her undocumented father is going to have to be deported. According to, 11-year-old Josie Molina told Rep. Scott Desjarlais (R) that she has papers but her father does not.

During a question and answer session at the meeting, Molina stepped up to the microphone and, with a quavering voice, asked, “Mr. DesJarlais, I have papers, but I have a dad who’s undocumented. What can I do to have him stay with me?”

To which that ugly hypocritical excuse for a human being shrugged and told her it was just too damn bad but there was nothing that could be done. Daddy was going back, and he wouldn't lift a finger to help.

All of those family-valuing teabaggers in that room then did something that proves they don't give a holy crap about families unless they're white families.

The tea party crowd whooped and applauded wildly as the little girl took her seat, head down. Progressive Populist reported that Josie Molina’s father is currently in the process of being deported and that the girl is seeing a child psychologist in order to cope with the stress and anxiety.

Josie, I'm so sorry you had to endure that and have to live with the prospect of losing your father. I hope this country makes things right for you.

As for Rep. Pervert Hypocrite DesJarlais who claims God has forgiven him for screwing women he was supposed to be treating, I'm going to put money down that even if God forgives that, he's not quite as kindly when it comes to stabbing kids in the heart. The 200 who whooped and hollered at the prospect of a child losing her father should make sure they never, ever, ever dare to utter the word "family" and "values" in the same sentence ever again.

The day voters grind these tea party jerks into oblivion cannot come soon enough.
