Cato Member on Illegals Mopping up Oil: ‘They’re Very Absorbent’
June 11, 2010
(ChattahBox)—-Hahaha. Man, these scholarly libertarian types are hilarious. Michael Cannon, the director of health policy studies for the libertarian think tank, the Cato Institute, decided to take to his twitter account to post ethnic slurs about “illegals.” He was responding to a story that undocumented immigrants may be working in the clean up operation of the Gulf oil disaster. And Cannon thought it was pretty doggone funny to portray oily “illegals” as human absorbent sponges to soak up the oil.
Cannon previously worked for the Senate Republican Policy Committee under disgraced former Sen. “wide-stance” Larry E. Craig, who was caught allegedly propositioning an undercover cop in a men’s airport bathroom.
Cannon’s scholarly libertarian tweet is below, which has now been scrubbed from his account:
