One symptom of schizophrenia is when a person thinks that messages are being transmitted to their brain from Mars or another planet. This appears to be quite common among the conspiratorial right, which is increasingly becoming the Republican Party itself.
So maybe it's no surprise that a state representative from Texas, Debbie Riddle, is justifying repealing the 14th Amendment because she claims to have inside information that "Jihad Moms" are coming to the United States to bear children as U.S. Citizens with the express purpose of the children growing up into terrorists with U.S. citizenship and passports:
Pregnant women are coming to the U.S. to have their babies so their children later can more easily re-enter this country and perform terrorist acts, according to Rep. Debbie Riddle.
Riddle, R-Tomball, told a producer for CNN's Anderson Cooper that pregnant women are coming as tourists to have a baby and then returning to their native country, "with the nefarious purpose of turning them into little terrorists who will then come back to the U.S. and do us harm."
Riddle called it "part of an organized terrorist element."
Whoa, those transmitters from Mars are working overtime sending messages to State Rep. Riddle, who would not disclose her sources other than in the vaguest of terms.
When 10,000 people are killed a year by guns in the United States, and we've experienced an outbreak of murders incited by the right wing media that Riddle no doubt is a fan of, it's the white male radical Republican terrorists that we should be focusing on, not psycho conspiratorial theories that have no bearing in fact or even in believability.
Thinking about what a desperate hole Bush got America into, it's hard to think we'll ever climb out of it with the likes of State Rep. Riddle and her Tea Party/GOP crowd. The repeal of the 14th Amendment is now backed by the Republican leadership at a time when the economic infrastructure and base of America is collapsing.
These psychos are like some rumor mongers out of the medieval ages, and they are dragging America backwards into the dark ages.
They talk about procreating terrorists and "anchor babies," but they are the real anchors, pulling America down and preventing progress as the nation is in need of smart strategic thinking, not schizophrenic messages from Mars.
