Blog Running – teabagger Alert!!! – The Republican Policy of Hate, Fear and Loathing – ‘Even In Tragedy, A Nation Divided’

The tea party.

Love America just hate the Americans living in it.

By Leonard Pitts Jr.

‘Ordinarily, I’d thank you for writing’.

‘But truth is, I am not grateful you wrote; your note last week was one of the more troubling things I have read. I do not blame you for leaving it unsigned’.

“We stand together,” I had written. “We stand defiant. And we stand with Boston.”

‘You disagreed’.

“Your wrong pal we do not STAND TOGETHER.OH MY GOD we need a CIVIL WAR.The American people against the LIBERAL DEMACRAT SCUM that we have let allow SCUMBAGS like those that would BLOW UP people in BROAD DAYLIGHT to be here … WE NEED A CIVIL WAR.Those demacrats that happen to still be breathing after that CIVIL WAR will have a choice. BECOME NORMAL or you are LEAVING with the 11 million illegals that ARE GOING HOME … THIS IS SO CLOSE TO HAPPENING THAT EVERY LIBERAL IN THIS COUNTRY SHOULD START LOSING SLEEP … THERE IS A CLEAR REASON WHY WE ARE ARMED TO THE TEETH …”

‘And you know, there was a time, not so long ago, I’d have laughed off your semi-coherent, misspelling-riddled rant. But I don’t laugh so much anymore, because you concretize a question I have been struggling with: Is America sustainable? Can a nation pulling so energetically in opposite directions survive’?

‘We call it hyper-partisanship, polarization, balkanization. But those are SAT words, polysyllabic expressions that make abstract what they describe. So let us face what you embody and call it by name. It is hatred. And it is contempt’.

‘It’s not just you. It’s Arkansas state legislator Nate Bell tweeting, “I wonder how many Boston liberals spent the night cowering in their homes wishing they had an AR-15 with a hi-capacity magazine?” as the hunt for bombers closed that city down’.

‘Before that, it was that man in Florida who committed suicide because Barack Obama was re-elected’.

‘And so-called “patriots” in the woods plotting against the government’.

‘And a sign promising death to the First Lady and her “two stupid kids.”

‘It’s the true state of the union, the America we have come to be’.

‘Yes, I know. Bill Maher once called Sarah Palin a crude and sexist name. Shame on that smarmy little man. But no, that does not suggest an equivalence of hatred and contempt’.

‘In volume, vociferousness and pure venom, Maher and the handful of other left-wing pundits who mistake name-calling for argument and coarseness for wit have nothing on the army of Hannitys, Coulters, Savages, Santorums, Limbaughs, Palins, Bachmanns, Malkins, Nugents, Trumps and Becks trolling the sewers of American disunion’.

‘Now, to them, we add you, my nameless countryman, advocating for war. War’.

‘And I am struck by the fact that I am not struck by the fact. Even this is just business as usual now’.

‘A nation is more than common geography’.

‘It is also common values, a common way of looking at the world — not that everyone agrees on everything always, but that we are at least tethered by similar understanding of who we are and what that means’.

‘It is that test this country fails now with regularity’.

‘We can’t even agree on who we are anymore, so swamped are we by the rage red holds for blue’.

‘The road to Civil War began 153 years ago as Southern states, led by South Carolina, passed ordinances of secession from the Union’.

‘But, as a nation is more than just geography, so, too, is secession therefrom’.

‘The act represents a tearing away that is as much spiritual and emotional as it is geographic. Maybe even more’.

‘So if the likes of you and Mr. Bell are right, if it is really beyond us now even to stand shoulder to shoulder with stricken fellow citizens, then we have lost more than bombs could ever destroy’.

‘And secession has already occurred’.

But it’s all Obama’s Fault!!!! – ‘Senate rejects background checks on gun purchases in 54-46 vote’

senate back ground checks


The final vote on the Republican Filibuster of expanding back ground checks was 54 yea and 46 nay.

4 Republicans voted for it and 5 Democrats voted against it.

Remember that Senator Harry Reid’s no vote was a procedural vote so that he could bring the measure up in the future.

So 54 yea votes and now add the 5 Democratic no votes.

What does that equal?

59.

It required 60 yea votes to over ride the Republican Filibuster on this measure.

But it was Obama’s fault.

 

‘Liberals Rejoice At Prospect Of Replacing Baucus With Schweitzer’

brian schwietzer

A couple of months ago, I wrote that Governor Schweitzer would enter Presidential politics.

Start following Schweitzer. While Baucus all too often worked to hurt Democrats, Schweitzer will work to help.

For the record, it would have made no difference if Senator Baucus had voted for back ground checks. The measure still would have failed.

What is a complete mystery to me though, is why he still voted against it, knowing full well he was going to retire anyway.

‘Six-term senator Max Baucus (D-MT) announced Tuesday that he will not seek re-election in 2014, delighting both Republicans who see an opportunity to gain a Senate seat, and Democrats who have tired of Baucus’ conservative voting record’.

“Goodbye, Senator K Street. Max Baucus has a history of voting with corporate interests and not the interests of Montana voters — taking millions from Wall Street, insurance companies, and lobbyists,” Progressive Change Campaign Committee co-founder Stephanie Taylor said in a statement released Tuesday, echiong the sentiments of many on the left. “Montana will finally have a chance to have a senator with its best interests at heart, and we hope Brian Schweitzer jumps into the race immediately.”

‘Indeed, Schweitzer is the other reason that many Democrats aren’t sad to see Baucus go. Schweitzer is much more popular across the state than Baucus, and a recent poll found that the former two-term governor of Montana would crush Baucus by 19 percent in a hypothetical primary’.

‘Although the bombastic Schweitzer once said that he is “not senile enough to be in the Senate,” on Tuesday he suggested to the Los Angeles Times that he was considering jumping into the race’.

“I’ll look around once I climb that mountain,” Schweitzer said. “There should be a pretty good view from there. I’ll look around and see what I do next.”

‘Like Baucus, Schweitzer is an unwavering “gun rights” supporter, but his outspoken environmentalism and willingness to mix it up with Republicans — as demonstrated in this video of the then-governor vetoing GOP bills with a giant brand — have made him a progressive favorite’.

Why it’s called the ‘Stupid Party’ – The Fake Filibuster Of Rand Paul – ‘Rand Paul Backs Drone Killing Of Hypothetical Armed Robber’

rand paul6

When Senator Rand Paul made his ‘historic’ talking filibuster, he was touted as a ‘hero’, the new front runner in the 2016 Republican Presidential race.

It now turns out that the ‘principles’ that Senator Rand Paul sood for during that ‘historic’ filibuster, were for show.

Just a fake covering over the real Rand Paul.

‘Marking an abrupt shift in tone from his epic March filibuster, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said late Monday that he would be fine with a drone killing a run-of-the-mill armed robber’.

“Here’s the distinction: I have never argued against any technology being used when you have an imminent threat, an act of crime going on,” Paul said on Fox Business Network. “If someone comes out of a liquor store with a weapon and $50 in cash, I don’t care if a drone kills him or a policeman kills him. But it’s different if they want to come fly over your hot tub or your yard just because they want to do surveillance on everyone, and they want to watch your activities.”

What is wrong with the Republican Party – FOX (cough) news – ‘Ann Coulter – “She outa be in prison…”

ann coulter

Go past the fact that Ann Coulter has to say more and more extreme things just to get attention.

Go past the fact that Hannity is a complete failure as a journalist.

Go to the fact that FOX promotes this program and any time a Republican needs to correct some really stupid thing they’ve said, they go immediately to FOX.

And go to the fact that millions of people sit in front of their TV’s and complety accept what FOX tells them…..

It is amazing that after Ann Coulter says “She outa be in prison”…..Hannity says ‘I don’t have an answer for that.

Sean Hannity doesn’t have an answer for the First Amendment – freedom of religion.
