How do snobs like this get elected in the first place? :nope:

A California congressman known for edgy sarcasm mocked an opponent of illegal immigration during a town hall meeting last week, asking, “Who are you going to kill today?” before the constituent, a self-identified Minuteman, posed his question.

Rep. Pete Stark, D-Calif., no stranger to controversy, mocked the idea that the borders are not secure when asked about the federal government’s lack of activity on border security.

“We can’t get enough Minutemen armed. We’d like to get all the Minutemen armed so they can stop shooting people here,” Stark said.

Eventually, members of the audience urged Stark to offer a serious answer.

“If you knew anything about our borders, you would know that’s not the case. Our borders are quite secure, thank you,” Stark said, drawing jeers.

I saw the video and it is worse than the transcript.

Is it available on YouTube?

I am not one for anger & tend to take politicians with a grain of salt, but watching this yesterday, I was filled with rage so bad I was shaking. Fury at his smug, self righteous attitude, snarky comments & just all around disrespect for the citizens in his district who he is supposed to represent. Our founders would be appalled at him and at us for tolerating it

And think, this was actually mild for Pete Stark.

Shameful! This could be his " Macaca" moment and bring him down just like it did to George Allen.
