Great, now a Democrat joins the babble of stupidity

I may be ultra-Liberal in my views and beliefs concerning politics and civil/social issues, but I'm certainly not blind to the fact that our side does also contain a fair number of teh crazies, loons, and plain idiots. One of them, apparently, is Harry Reid (D-NV), the Senate Democratic Leader, and a man who, as Ed Brayton put in a way that nearly sent me falling out of my chair in laughter, "has the IQ of a turnip and the charm of an ebola virus*". He's apparently chosen to follow along in footsteps that are traditionally Republicans', mimicking their stupidity in saying that he doesn't want "terrorists to be released in the United States". Can't even the fucking Democrats, Obama's own party, get a clue as to what his plans say?

Below is an exchange during a recent press conference between questioning reporters and Reid.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) declared in a press conference today, "We will never allow terrorists to be released into the United States." In several tense back and forths with reporters, Reid said he opposes imprisoning detainees on U.S. soil, saying flatly, "We don't want them around the United States":

REID: I'm saying that the United States Senate, Democrats and Republicans, do not want terrorists to be released in the United States. That's very clear.

QUESTION: No one's talking about releasing them. We're talking about putting them in prison somewhere in the United States.

REID: Can't put them in prison unless you release them.

QUESTION: Sir, are you going to clarify that a little bit? ...

REID: I can't make it any more clear than the statement I have given to you. We will never allow terrorists to be released in the United States.

Later, Reid repeated that he would not support Guantanamo detainees being transferred to U.S prisons:

QUESTION: But Senator, Senator, it's not that you're not being clear when you say you don't want them released. But could you say -- would you be all right with them being transferred to an American prison?

REID: Not in the United States.

So this boob is against the mere harboring of terrorists in the US, period? Tell that to the numerous prisons that already house terror-mongers in the US mainland. Idiot.

    Shut up fatty. "OMG, someone's an idiot for not wanting dangerous terrorists on american soil!!"

  • Joé McKen

    Aaand here's ignorant #2. Do you even read, I wonder?

    • There was NEVER a plan to "release terrorists on American soil in American cities". That is bullshit and baldfaced lying, nothing more.

    • They (terrorists) will be relocated to maximum-security prisons. You know, the kind that ALREADY HOUSE MANY TERRORISTS ON AMERICAN SOIL.
