The GOP hunt for unicorns continues as only the southern border seems to leak Middle Eastern terrorists (not). This fiction was floated during the “caravan” scare pimped during the midterm election and is a continuation of the “Muslim Ban” from the first month of the Trump regime.
“Sir Lanka” (whoever he is), is the origin of terrorists, even if they’ve decided to take a detour through Mexico, says the GOP leader, because you shouldn’t think there are a plethora of RW domestic terrorists who are the real threat to America.
We know Kevin McCarthy’s more like his forebear Charlie, but he unashamedly repeats tropes leftover from prior decades because the GQP’s got nothing important for you to fear.
As usual, the GOP thinks you shouldn’t pay attention to the hundreds of domestic terrorist insurrectionists being prosecuted from the 1/6 DC attack.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) is lying to Californians and the nation about the country of origin of people coming across the southern border.

When McCarthy falsely names countries he accuses of coming across our border in his racist pig squeal of a photo-op, you can see he slows down his cadence in an imitation of Trump. ‘Sir Lanka’ was not an accident-he flubbed it on purpose for clicks and to degrade. Right, Kelvin?
