Convention ends with Satan and immigrants

My friend Nate sent me a link to this story from the Utah Daily Herald that leads with this line: “Utah County Republicans ended their convention on Saturday by debating Satan’s influence on illegal immigrants.”

I would like to offer the best quotes from this story, but it’s seriously mind-blowing from start to finish. Instead, here are three paragraphs from early in the story to give you a taste of what is to come.

Don Larsen, chairman of legislative District 65 for the Utah County Republican Party, had submitted a resolution warning that Satan’s minions want to eliminate national borders and do away with sovereignty.

In a speech at the convention, Larsen told those gathered that illegal immigrants “hate American people” and “are determined to destroy this country, and there is nothing they won’t do.”

Illegal aliens are in control of the media, and working in tandem with Democrats, are trying to “destroy Christian America” and replace it with “a godless new world order — and that is not extremism, that is fact,” Larsen said.

Okay, I can’t stop there. Here are some more:

One speaker, who was identified as “Joe,” said illegal immigrants were Marxist and under the influence of the devil. Another, who declined to give her name to the Daily Herald, said illegal immigrants should not be allowed because “they are not going to become Republicans…”
