As all of you know, who actually read this blog, ever since Governor Snyder decided to stab disillusioned former Democratic Party voters, like myself, in the back with his so-called “right to work” bill; I have been highly critical of the so-called “right.”
Already so far, I have pointed that Christians, like David Brody at Pat Robertson’s CBN have been morbidly using this tragic event in Newtown, CT for evangelistic tools. Well, now it seems that well-known members of the so-called “right” are now cashing in on the event as well.
First up, someone who the NYT very accurately calls the token negro:
(CNN) – Republican Rep. Tim Scott of South Carolina, the new appointee to replace Sen. Jim DeMint, indicated Wednesday he may oppose any gun control legislation in the Senate next Congress, saying instead the larger issue is one of “moral decay.”
“I think the solutions are not necessarily in new legislation. Perhaps the solution starts with us examining the mental condition of the person and the persons in the past that have had the desire to create the atrocities we have seen recently,” he said on CNN’s “Starting Point with Soledad O’Brien.”
By the way, it is not so much that I really care that he is black and a Republican. Great, wonderful, more power to him. It is that he goes around acting like, “Hey! Look at me, I am black man and a Republican! Yay me!” Big deal dude. Here’s a chicken flavored cookie for ya. It is sort of like identity politics for Conservatives. Something that I find to be very highly annoying. It is not just him; Allen West, Nikki Haley, Most Jewish Republicans, and Michelle Malkin do the same stuff all the time. I like to call them affirmative action conservatives. I mean, really, nobody really gives two flips what you really are; which are corporatist shills to be quite honest with you.
Another stop on the douche-nozzle express train is none other than Newt Gingrich, who’s president campaign was a very well timed joke:
During a local talk radio show early Wednesday morning, former Speaker Newt Gingrich cast his lot with the religious right by blaming last week’s tragic shooting in Newtown, Connecticut on secularism and immoral video games.
Gingrich joined host Brian Thomas of 55KRC in Cincinnati to discuss his latest book, but the conversation quickly pivoted towards gun control and why godlessness in our schools is really to blame:
When you have an anti-religious, secular bureaucracy and secular judiciary seeking to drive God out of public life, something fills the vacuum. And that something, you know, I don’t know that going from communion to playing war games in which you practice killing people is necessarily an improvement.
Like I wrote before:
The truth is the Republican Party and so-called Conservative movement has not been worth a damn since that day on January 3, 1987, when Senator Barry Morris Goldwater decided that he was not going to take any orders from any special interest groups and decided that a life of retirement was in order. When he left, that Party and that movement went to the toilet. It really kicked into high gear on January 20, 1989, when then President Ronald Wilson Reagan waved goodbye to the people at the airport and prayed that he had left the reigns of the Nation in good hands with his successor.
Image? Nah, more like total rottenness from within.
This proves that above which I wrote. The GOP is rotten from within, and has been for years.
