The epitome of stupid-shit brought to you Republicans (And Joltin Joe Lieberman) is a bill to deny American Citizenship to terrorists.
Somebody please explain to me why some terrorist wannabe, who is willing to blow up a damn airplane at 35,000 feet – with his ass going down with everyone else…
Give’s a rat’s ass about being an American Citizen?
I mean…Is this bill going to to apply to our own home grown right wing whack jobs…
Or those with just “A-Rab” sentimentality? I mean – is there an exception for whackjobs who blow up Government Building and Day Care Centers?
And if we do deport our own home grown right wing crazies, unlike Islamic fundamentalists who could find pleasant waterfront homes and new occupations in mayhem in Somalia – WTF wants them?
“Let me get this straight Billy-Bob, you got your dumb, white ass tossed out of the wealthiest country in the world, because you didn’t want to pay taxes… Which are lower than the next 17 richest countries? Which all, BTW happen to be socialized! You better get used to living a country with a brown or black face as President, because your dumb ass is not coming here to cause trouble…”
I’m beginning to think the best way to win the “War on Terror”…
Is to ship them our dumb-assed Republicans (and “Independent”).
A bipartisan group of legislators on Thursday introduced legislation in Congress to strip citizenship from any American found to be involved in terrorism.
If the Terrorist Expatriation Act passes, an American would lose citizenship if found to have provided material support or resources to a foreign terrorist organization — as designated by the secretary of state — or participated in actions against the United States.
Sens. Joe Lieberman, I-Connecticut, and Scott Brown, R-Massachusetts, co-sponsored the bill. An identical bill is being introduced in the House by Reps. Jason Altmire, D-Pennsylvania, and Charlie Dent, R-Pennsylvania.
“As the attempted terrorist attack on Times Square showed us again, our enemies today are even more willing than the Nazis or fascists were to kill innocent civilian Americans [in WWII],” Lieberman, chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, told reporters. “Our enemies today are stateless actors who don’t wear uniforms and plot against Americans abroad and here in the United States.”
Faisal Shahzad, an American citizen, recently admitted driving a Nissan Pathfinder into New York’s Times Square on Saturday and attempting to detonate the vehicle, which was packed with gasoline, propane tanks, fireworks and fertilizer, according to a complaint filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in New York.
Lieberman said the legislation updates the 1940 Immigration and Nationality Act, which identifies seven categories in which citizens can lose citizenship if they voluntarily perform one of the acts.
The list, according to Lieberman, includes acts such as serving in the armed forces of a “foreign state” if such armed forces are engaged in hostilities against the United States; formally renouncing nationality whenever the United States is in a state of war; or committing treason against the United States.
“The bill we’re introducing today would simply update the 1940 law to account for the enemy that we are fighting today,” he said. “Many have said this law goes too far. Remember, this bill only updates an existing statute that has been on the books for 70 years that accounts for the terrorist enemy that we are fighting today.”
