Woe Unto Truth Tellers In Colorado’s House of Representatives!
By: John Lillpop
Colorado State Rep. Douglas Bruce is apparently a man of unusual candor and one who favors the truth over politically-correct double talk.
That assessment of Rep. Bruce was borne out by his remarks while speaking at the podium of the state House of Representatives on Monday.
During debate on a bill that would allow the state help “immigrant” workers get a temporary federal visa, Rep. Davis sent the august body into utter chaos when he said:
“I would like to have the opportunity to state at the microphone why I don’t think we need 5,000 more illiterate peasants in Colorado.”
According to reports, Bruce’s “outburst” drew an audible gasp from the assembled nit wits in the House.
Which is actually a sign of progress, because at least there was a quorum of House members who were sober and awake enough to gasp audibly! Progress, not perfection is clearly good enough in Colorado.
State Rep. Kathleen Curry, a Democrat who was serving as chairwoman during the debate, went into ding-bat shock and immediately told the Republican lawmaker that he was no longer recognized to speak.
“How dare you?” demanded Curry, obviously outraged that free speech, wrapped in truth and light, had somehow invaded the House chamber while the not-so-honorable chair lady was trolling for Hispanic votes.
Of course, Curry does have a point. After all, Mexican farm workers imported for slave labor are vastly underestimated by racist pigs like Rep. Bruce.
For example, many of the laborers are closeted Rhodes Scholars, toiling in 110-degree heat for sixteen hours a day in order to expose the plight of the victimized poor brought here by vote hungry Democrats and cheap labor hungry Republicans.
Many other Mexican laborers are working on post-graduate degrees in linguistics and need the gritty-nitty banter found only in strawberry fields to better understand barrio Spanish.
Other alleged laborers are actually crafty Mexican investors who come disguised as pickers so as to gather competitive intelligence and other financial information needed to support hostile take-over bids for tomato and grape ranches in Colorado’s rich agriculture lands.
In fact, when you get down to it, the only “illiterate peasant” around is State Rep. Kathleen Curry.
Got that Rep. Bruce?
