This video is such a microcosm of so many things that challenge us today…
Partisan politics on both sides crowding out constructive debate
The irrational fear of “them” – illegal immigrants
The rational bitterness of legal immigrants toward those who did not follow the legal path
The “epistemic closure” of people believing things like -the “Minute Men” shoot people coming over the border – they have not
And a representative who has utter contempt for both his constituents who don’t share his views and his own responsibilities. Did you hear him say, “I’m not the government”? Then exactly who are you Mr. Congressman?
Whatever side of these issues you are on – this is just sad and scary!
