Twitter Unleashes Hell on House Republican After He Complains About 75 Afghan Refugees Moving to Montana

Montana – the Big Sky State and the fourth-largest by area – encompasses a sprawling 147,040 square miles. Its population – 1,069,000 as of 2019 – means that on average, there are roughly seven people living within each square mile. All that open space, however, is not enough for Republican Matt Rosendale – Montana’s lone United States Congressman – who had a Twitter meltdown on Thursday after learning that seventy-five Afghan war refugees are being relocated to his state.

“Today I learned that 75 refugees from Afghanistan will be arriving in Montana. I strongly oppose the resettlement of these Afghan nationals in Montana. Following the Biden Administration’s disastrously mismanaged withdrawal from Afghanistan, I warned that we could not use this Administration’s incompetence to justify flooding our communities with unvetted refugees,” Rosendale’s blubbering began.

“The traditional vetting process for these individuals is a 14-step procedure, that takes well over a year. The mass evacuation of over 100,000 Afghan nationals in a matter of weeks has made proper vetting of these individuals near impossible. At this time, it appears extremely unlikely the Biden Administration properly vetted the Afghan nationals being resettled in Montana,” Rosendale – a member of the ever so enlightened House Freedom Caucus – continued, although he offered no evidence to support that claim because it is false. All Afghan refugees are thoroughly vetted before they are resettled in the United States.

“I have advocated that we should try and settle these individuals in other countries around Afghanistan that share their values and culture, especially if we can not ensure proper vetting,” he added. “As elected officials, it is our duty to protect the citizens we represent—and I will not allow this Administration to compromise the safety of Montanans.”

Rosendale could have saved himself and everyone else valuable time if he had just said, “not in my backyard” or “there goes the neighborhood.”

Predictably, Twitter saw right through him.

“More people probably live between 72nd Street and 96th Street on the west side of Manhattan than live in your entire state. I suspect you have room. Or do you just not like people not of European descent?” one user replied.

“Flooding our communities”…………..you mean there isn’t enough room in super densely populated…..(checking notes)……MONTANA for a whopping SEVENTY-FIVE refugees? Who, yes, have been vetted? How about 75 Swedes in suits and ties carrying briefcases?” said another.

The Twitterverse mercilessly mocked Rosendale and his xenophobia.

Twitter came with receipts.

But this jab takes the crown.
