Hey, George W. Bush found some people willing to spend time to listen to him. He thinks immigration reform will happen, even though all Mexicans want to come here to sell drugs and gay-marry each other for the government health benefits. But why does Bush want this to happen? He thinks the country is getting “nativist.” Uh oh. This guy’s officially dead to the Teabaggers.
“What’s interesting about our country, if you study history, is that there are some ‘isms’ that occasionally pop up. One is isolationism and its evil twin protectionism and its evil triplet nativism. So if you study the ’20s, for example, there was an American-first policy that said, ‘Who cares what happens in Europe?'” Bush said. “And there was an immigration policy that I think during this period argued we had too many Jews and too many Italians, therefore we should have no immigrants. And my point is that we’ve been through this kind of period of isolationism, protectionism and nativism. I’m a little concerned that we may be going through the same period. I hope that these ‘isms’ pass.”
Damn straight! Let’s end all “isms.” Capitalism, for one. Also, baptism. And botulism. No, let’s keep that last one.
During another segment of the interview, Bush also claimed that he was “through with politics,” and that he wasn’t interested in getting involved with campaigning or fundraising for future candidates.
