What? Iowa GOPer Claims Migrant Kids are Trained Terrorists Aimed at Destroying America

An Iowa GOPer gave a novel reason to why ‘real’ Americans should fear the influx of migrant kids. As it turns out, the South American kids might well have been trained by Hamas or Hezbollah to be skilled warriors intent on destroying America.

Tamara Scott is an RNC committeewoman and a lobbyist for conservative group The Family Leader. She also hosts a weekly radio show, which is where she announced this week that the migrant kids crossing the U.S. border were truly “highly trained as warriors” and just might “rise up against” Americans at any time.

“When we see these kids, you and I think young kids, we think maybe 12-year-olds, maybe homeschoolers — excuse me, middle-schoolers,” said Scott, before making it clear that the migrant kids had little in common with their home-schooled and holy Christian peers.

“But we know back in our [American] revolution, we had 12-year-olds fighting in our revolution. And for many of these kids, depending on where they’re coming from, they could be coming from other countries and be highly trained as warriors who will meet up with their group here and actually rise up against us as Americans,” she speculated.

Skipping over the part where many of the kids are actually surrendering to the authorities on arrival and escaping war – not trying to be part of one – her guest, Texas Tea Party activist Mary Huls quickly agreed that the migrant kids pose a real risk, especially since the hungry and poor kids just may have been trained by Hezbollah or Hamas (which by the way is still operating in the Middle East, not South America despite far-right reports).

“They are being trained as warriors, you’re absolutely right,” Huls agreed, stressing that ‘we know’ that the Middle Eastern terrorist organizations are training young Venezuelan kids, as young as age 9,  to be anti-American warriors and then sending them to America to create an adolescent sleeper cell to doom the nation.
