Wow, Orrin Judd is now equating support for illegal immigration with support for abortion in order to bash Rudy Giuliani.

It didn’t quite seem like equating to me. More like both are subsets of a higher level attitude.

I read it as labeling both “anti-human position”. I suspect that’s not what OJ really meant, but that his desire to bash Guiliani drove his fingers too fast.

AOG - It is anti-human to on the one hand welcome illegal immigrants and with the other oppose offering them a legal status that would allow them to advance in society.

Apparently the GOP isn’t as hierarchical as Orrin had thought, since “the guy whose turn is next”, McCain, now seems rather unlikely to be the nominee. It’ll be a twice-divorced serial adulterer, a Mormon, or a guy who quit the U.S. Senate to spend his time playing make-believe.

I have to say that I found that a puzzling post, too, but I think that OJ is assuming (or hoping that we’ll assume) that Giuliani is walking away from his pro-immigration stance in this election. In other words, OJ is still characterizing anti-immigrationism as anti-human.

Mr. Cohen;

But why would Guiliani do that, since OJ assures us that anti-illegal immigrant is a minority position, even in the GOP?

Other Brother;

Why the presumption that, if Guiliani is changing his position, he continues to welcome illegal immigrants?

In the end, I think we’re over analyzing something that wasn’t thought through in the first place. I just enjoy snarking at OJ. I should have written this one up, where OJ claims that Hamas is a caring organization because it rescued a lion cub, while causing the electricity to go off in Gaza due to corruption. Yeah, that’s why Hamas won the elections.
