George P. Bush Calls Border Control Paintball Guns "Reprehensible"

George P. Bush is George W. Bush's nephew and son of Florida governor Jeb Bush and his Mexican wife. George P. Bush doesn't want illegal aliens of his race shot by chile powder projectiles.

"If there has been American approval for this policy, that is reprehensible," Bush said of the guns, essentially paintball projectiles filled with chile powder. "It's kind of barbarous."

Speaking in sometimes halting Spanish mixed with English, he said his uncle was not blame for the gun policy, which has angered Mexicans; instead, he blamed it on "some local INS (Immigration) guy who's trying to be tough, act macho."

The Border Patrol has been using pellet guns for a few years with no lasting harm.

The pellet guns, which were approved at the federal level, have been used on a trial basis since 2001 in California and Arizona. Border Patrol agents fired the pepper balls in 81 instances from 2002 to 2003 and reported no deaths or severe injuries

George P. Bush has been saying some reprehensible things for years.

George P. Bush wants to separate his uncle from the rest of the Republican Party.

Dubya has loudly proclaimed that his close ties to Mexican-Americans shows that he is a new kind of Republican.

Confirming this, his nephew George P. Bush told reporters, "Our biggest challenge will be to separate my uncle from the rest of the Republican Party."

This, then, could be why George W. has spent so much effort promoting a wedge issue that can only split his own party. He thinks the long-run fate of his dynasty demands a new, improved Republican Party —and a new, debased America.

Some right-wingers say I shouldn't be so critical of George W. Bush. But read what George P. Bush says above. George P. Bush wants me to let W. escape from any feeling of obligation toward immigration restrictionists. My guess is that W. has already done that without my help. P. wants W. to act as if W. does not represent us. W. is already doing that. Well, okay then. I accept this as a done deal already.

P. Bush obviously wants to change the Republican Party to no longer represent the views of people like the ParaPundit.

"This is a President who represents the diversity of our society, who we can count on to change the Republican Party to represent our views,"


"She told me we have to fight for our race, we have to find the leaders who represent us," he said in fluent Spanish.

P. Bush wants the Republican Party to fight for Hispanics. I'm guessing he wants to do that at the expense of whites. Well, I'm white. I think he wants to change the Republican Party at my expense. Am I mistaken? I also agree with Steve Sailer's analysis that W. is pursuing a wedge issue in his own party by promoting Mexican immigration in order to promote the political futures of his brother Jeb and nephew George P. Well, the Republican Party would be better off without the Bushes. They've caused enough damage as it is. Be gone with them.

Since when does promoting and enforcing our current immigration laws (which include allowing a large number of LEGAl immigrants into the US each year) amount to racism? Once more, a highly-charged word is hijacked for political purposes. Either enforce our current laws, or change them!

I do not know, just another comment; watch jalapeno pepper spray if you are trying to discourage an attacker; you need to go to habanero pepper spray because jalapeno does not do a thing to me and I assume there are some others out there who are totally immune to the stuff. What kind of chile powder are they using???

Hey, where can I buy these pepper pellets? I'd like to have some for some self defence!
