A Congressional candidate from Florida has been to space. In a UFO. No, I’m not kidding, although she is very likely delusional. Excerpt:
Rodriguez Aguilera, 59, a Republican who is running to replace retiring Miami Republican Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, recounted her experience with the ETs during a 2009 television interview.
She described “going up” inside the spaceship — though whether it went into space or just hovered around town was left unclear.
“I went in. There were some round seats that were there, and some quartz rocks that controlled the ship — not like airplanes,” Rodriguez Aguilera said.
In two separate videos posted to YouTube years ago, one by local Spanish-language station America TeVe and another by a political critic with the user name DoralGirl26, Rodriguez Aguilera spoke on television in detail about her extraterrestrial experiences. She said the alien beings reminded her of the famous statue in Rio de Janeiro, Christ the Redeemer, with arms outstretched.
Among the things she said she found out from the aliens:
▪ The world’s “energy center” is in Africa.
▪ The Coral Castle, a limestone tourist attraction South Miami-Dade, is actually an ancient Egyptian pyramid.
▪ “God is a universal energy.”
Am I alone here in thinking this kind of delusional horse squeeze should disqualify Ms. Aguilera from office? There are plenty of people who believe some odd things but are otherwise very functional within their field of work.
But this is something different. This is of a kind with flat-earthers and hollow-earth loonies. It’s of a kind with the lady I referenced last week that believed there was a city of superhuman aliens under a dormant volcano in California.
It’s of a kind with people who think socialism is a workable economic system.
Party registration be damned, this woman has no business holding office.
