Joe The Plumber: Put A Fence On The Border And Start Shooting

Samuel Wurzelbacher — the Ohio GOP congressional candidate better known as Joe the Plumber — is always hoping to inspire an eye-popping headline. At a Monday night fundraiser for Arizona State Senator Lori Klein, the Tea Party favorite expounded on his unapologetically draconian solution for illegal immigration:

“For years I’ve said, you know, put a damn fence on the border going to Mexico and start shooting. I’m running for Congress and that should be a bad thing to say. But you know what, it’s how I feel…I want my borders protected, I’m very, very adamant about that.”

Wurzelbacher’s latest diatribe lines up well with his well known disdain for gun control — a principal cause, in Wurzelbacher’s revisionist narrative, of the death of six million Jews during the Holocaust.

Senator Klein is an ardent defender of the Second Amendment as well. Back in July 2011, during an interview with The Arizona Republic‘s Richard Ruelas, Klein withdrew a pink, loaded Ruger .380 handgun from her purse and — demonstrating the laser sight — pointed it at the reporter’s chest.

“Oh, it’s so cute,” she gushed.

  • Joe the what? Is this the same Joe the Plumber who was not a plumber and did not have a business that he was so worried about? Sure nuff..what a waste of time.

  • Doesn’t that sound a little like, I don’t know, the Berlin Wall? They had a fence and would shoot at anything. Is that what these jerks want to turn us into, a police state?

    • LukeJohn

      Yes, maybe so but the Berlin wall was designed to keep people IN, “normal” border fences are meant to keep people OUT – there is quite a significant difference.

    Like a lot of ‘Republicans’ today; or at least the Tea Party lot who have the GOP by the balls the number 1 motivator for poor whites to vote for billionaire tax cuts and never ending wars is the chance to do what they really WANT to do. Shoot and kill non white’s.
    Any will do, Chinese (communists), Arabs, (terrorists), Mexicans (illegals), or Africans (gang bangers). Their heroes are men like Anders Breivik and their previous support has gone form Hitler, to South Africa to shooting unarmed black teenagers and now sitting aroud waiting for poor Mexicans to shoot at (hell they’re bored aren’t they?)
    ‘Job well done Marine’! being a choice comment on FOX News online(it got 98 recommendations!!!) and we are talking about a soldier who went into a house and shot 5 arab girls to death in their bed. It is the reason even Barbara Bush called her own Party ‘Ugly’.
    Indeed these particaul white people are probably the most hate filled and enthusiatic killer of human kind in all our appalling history.
    They just want to do it. Nothing else makse them feel so good. In my humble Anglo Saxon opinion if these monsters want the death penalty I say give it to them
    Ex soldier, Wounded veteran and NON racist!

  • Sounds like Joe The Plummer is paranoid. No offence but CHILL OUT. If there was a million troop army at the Mexican border waiting to invade American fair enough. But to say what he said in my opinion is STUPID.
