I originally was going to post some statement questioning if the League of United Latin American Citizens are financed by George Soros. They ARE! It should be reported everytime one of his groups is protesting something. He won't be happy until our country is in ruin.

Peck's comment was stupid, but this was blown way out of proportion.

Maybe ICE should have been at that demonstration and made some arrests. Therein lies the problem. Our immigration laws are not enforced.

It is about this country being a stone's throw away from what happened in Germany. If Peck goes unpunished, what will that say about us as Kansas people? What will that say about the GOP?

This man literally thought about killing other people. That is enough to have him shoved out of his legislative position and to bar him from politics for a lifetime.

He has literally tainted the face of the GOP.

Well I hate to say this to you. Senor El guapo. It is not about Hispanics committing Violence, It is about being Disrespected by a Politician, who should resign. It is totally wrong and unjustified. And it should not be tolerated. So yes he should resign.
