Well that comes as shocking news for me, the democrats are finally fighting back? The sad thing is that saying something this ridiculous normally would have cost you your seat. No one would have ever taken this seriously, he would have been laughed out. But now, it’s believed as much as if he would have said that Barack Obama is secretly importing Muslims over the border in order to make the USA an Islamic state.
Stupidity and ignorance are gaining steam like ever before. If you ever say something that the right doesn’t agree with, your automatically considered brainwashed by the “Liberal Media”. The same “Liberal Media” which is almost completely in the pocket of our corporate overlords. Look, if anyone is waging class warfare, it’s the rich. The amazing thing about it is that as more services get cut and a lot of those cuts come from Education, the larger part of the population which becomes blissfully ignorant.
The answers to all their problems will always be the simple ones. It’s the illegal immigrants that take their job. It’s evil progressive programs that lead to them being taxed. Everyone hates America because of it’s freedom. Minorities are ruining the country. It’s the Second Age of the Know Nothings, but even more abrasive and nowhere near ashamed of their stance.
Hopefully in time things will change, and people will start moving forward again. They will look back in embarrassment as the Neo-Cons try to turn back a century of forward thinking. Let’s go back to the time before the scopes monkey trial. Let’s get rid of everything that is in the slightest bit socialist slanted. Good bye Child Labor Laws, 40 hour work weeks, unemployment benefits.
We are talking about stuff that we gained through tough Union fighting during the great depression. Republicans have endlessly campaigned to destroy the New Deal. For what gain? Everytime another section of the new deal is destroyed, it is everyone at the bottom of the pyramid that is hurt. The amazing thing is that the people on the bottom don’t even realize they are the ones getting screwed.
I still can’t believe that this guy is going to get a bunch of press, but no one is going to bring up that he is obviously insane and should be tossed out on his ass. Yes I realize that this post in uninspired.
