Start Shooting

“For years I’ve said, you know, put a damn fence on the border going to Mexico and start shooting. I’m running for Congress and that should be a bad thing to say. But you know what, it’s how I feel…I want my borders protected, I’m very very adamant about that.”

  • Samuel Wurzlbacher, also known as “Joe the Plumber” (made famous during the 2008 Presidential campaign by McCain), August 10, 2012

  • Context: Wurzlbacher, who is also running for Congress in Ohio as a Republican, made this comment at a fundraiser for Republican Arizona State Senator candidate Lori Klein (also in attendance was Joe Arpaio). He repeated the same stance (includes video) the next day at a “Patriot Rally”, saying:

“I’m running for Congress. How many congressmen or people running for Congress have you heard, put a fence up and start shooting? None? Well you heard it here first. Put troops on the border and start shooting, I bet that solves our immigration problem real quick.”
