Re: Peter Brimelow's blog post Francis’ Speech To Congress: Is The Pope Catholic? Or Just Silly And Stupid?

From: Kit Brewer (e-mail him)

How much did the Pope's visit cost the American Taxpayer? Did Billy Graham ever receive Secret Service protection?

These questions sprang to my mind as I watched Pope Francis, the idiot, proclaim "We, the people of this continent, are not fearful of foreigners, because most of us once were foreigners." What the...? We're not? We were?

Many people I know are fearful of foreigners and, despite the best efforts of multi-culturalists and billionaires, the majority of us were born here.

I tried to overlook the halting English. After all, I can't speak Spanish. But I couldn't overlook the dull bovine eyes and the constant silly smile, both of which I think betray a startling lack on intelligence.

This is the best The Catholic Church has to offer?

I don't doubt the Pope needs protection. But for the American taxpayer to pick up the tab for being lectured by a seemingly retarded, pompous Pope? That's wrong.

See previous letters from Kit Brewer.

James Fulford writes: Pope Francis is an Argentinian by birth, and an Italian—like the late General Galtieri—by ancestry. I suppose that's what he means by "once were foreigners"—not American Indians, blah, blah, blah.  What I don't understand is why he thinks Argentina is on the same continent as the United States of America.
