Watching Reruns Of Barmy Miller, Part 2

You figure Joe Miller could stay out of the news with his quasi-fascism fetish for at least, oh, I dunno, 24 hours or something.  Sadly, you would be wrong, because he did it again at the same town hall meeting, this time saying America had a few things to learn about border security from the bad old days of Communist East Germany.

During that time, he said, "East Germany was very, very able to reduce the flow" from one side of the border to the other. "Now, obviously, other things there were involved. We have the capacity to, as a great nation, obviously to secure our border. If East Germany could, we could."

Yeah.  We need walls, checkpoints, spotlights, machine gun towers all manned by rough men in the night.  That's the world Joe Miller thinks we need, after we spent decades trying to get rid of totalitarianism foolishness like that in Europe, we need to simply import it into America.  And what is it with Republicans finding tons of things to admire in the bad old days of German history, anyway?

Amazing.  Of course, there are far worse Republican approaches to border security than big scary walls and concertina wire, and that's a shoot to kill policy.

Georgia's Republican State Rep. John Yates has a position on immigration that almost nobody would agree with: he wants US border agents empowered to "shoot to kill."

Asked to justify his position, Yates recently told a reporter in Atlanta that illegal immigrants are enemies of America who must be dealt with severely.

"Stopping Hitler was worth the price," the 89-year-old lawmaker said.

But remember, you should be afraid of those secretly fascist Democrats (instead of the openly fascist Republicans, presumably because they tell you up front whom they are going to persecute, those "other guys".  Dems?  You don't know...it might be you!  Be afraid!)
