Fla. Tea Party Candidate: Imprison ‘Illegal Aliens’ in Japanese-Style ‘Camps’ (Video)
August 13, 2010
(ChattahBox)—On this fine Friday afternoon, comes more bigoted nonsense to report on the issue of illegal immigration. Marg Baker, a middle-age tea party lady running for the Florida State House of Representatives, in district 48, drew applause at a recent Glenn Beckian 912 gathering, when she suggested that undocumented immigrants should be rounded up and thrown in 1940s style internment camps, before they are shipped back. After receiving criticism for her internment camp plan, she doubled down on her offensive idea, telling Salon that she wanted to make sure people didn’t confuse her idea with Nazi concentration camps. You see, Baker envisions Japanese style internment camps for undocumented immigrants and their children. Glad she cleared that up for us.
Baker first made her remarks at a recent meeting of 912ers:
“We can follow what happened back in the 40s or 50s. I was just a little girl in Miami, and they built camps for the people that snuck into the country, because they were illegal. They put them in the camps, and they shipped them back. We can do that.”
Baker later told Salon she believes a “tent city” that wasn’t “too comfortable” would serve as an appropriate internment camp. And she graciously offered to lock up not just Hispanics, but all illegal immigrants.
Where should Baker’s internment camp be located? Baker suggests the middle of nowhere:
“We can ship them out to the middle of the country and put up high walls and leave them there,” said Marg Baker.
And like all conspiratorial right-wing Republicans, Baker has a vivid imagination. She warns that “illegal aliens” are walking around right out in the open, just like the alien invaders from the TV show “V.”
Says Marg, “the people are walking among us, and who knows.” What specifically is Baker afraid of?
Let’s take a look at her campaign website under the heading, “Illegal Aliens.” Holy crap! According to Marg, illegal aliens are disease ridden prostitutes, packing heat and on drugs:
“Illegal Aliens ‘O’ TOLERANCE!!!
Why should we not tolerate illegal aliens? Here are a number of reasons:
1. They have chosen to ignore our laws. Our country has laws governing the admittance of foreigners into our country including checking for communicable diseases. Illegals have chosen to ignore these laws, which protect the legal citizens.
2. Illegal weapons trade
4. Drug trade
5. And more
Our lives, our sovereignty and our national security are at stake.”
