This weekend, Human Events posted an offensive parody of the famous Christmas carol, “Feliz Navidad,” entitled “Illegal Aliens In My Yard.” Besides repeatedly referring to undocumented immigrants as “illegals,” a term that’s considered pejorative and offensive by immigrant-rights organizations, the song primarily focuses on spreading false and hateful stereotypes about Latinos who are portrayed as bug-carrying invalids:

Illegals in my yard.
Illegals in my yard.
Illegals in my yard.
Sixteen arrive in a stolen car[...]

They’re getting free organ transplants this Christmas.
They’re going to have anchor babies this Christmas.
They’re going to scream “sí, se puede” this Christmas.
Those illegals in my yard[...]

They’re going to spread bubonic plague this Christmas.
They’re going to bring me lots of bed bugs this Christmas.
They’re going to pass tuberculosis this Christmas.
Those illegals in my yard.

Listen:

The spoof is one of the many creations produced by Talk Radio Network’s Matt Fox and AJ Rice’s “The Fox and Rice Experience.” Their low-brow repertoire also includes “Sasha Obama’s Big Mouth,” a voiced-over conversation between President Obama and his daughter that features the tagline: “when procreation goes horribly wrong.” Another Christmas melody, “We’re Beginning to Look A Lot like Marxists,” was posted last week.
