Sleepy Time Thought: The Bleak Future of the GOP

01m Political Cartoons 08.11

______________________________

I know that people worry about the midterms and what’d happen if the GOP takes the Senate. For those people, I have the following message:

Calm down!

You have to remember a very important thing… time isn’t on the side of Republicans… at all. Republicans don’t fare well in presidential elections, and, eventually, one of the conservative judges on the Supreme Court is going to retire/die. We’d almost certainly have a Democrat in the White House to select the new Justice. Even a centre-left moderate would be far to the left of where the current conservative wing of the Court now is. It’d completely screw the GOP for a very long time once the right loses the power of the Court to enforce their insane voter suppression schemes. The more people that get to vote, the better Democrats do. That’s pretty much a political law and that’s why Republicans work so hard to keep people away from the polls. Add to that the fact that the Court can also undo extreme gerrymandering; the GOP’s entire electoral strategy collapses. They’d either have to attract minority voters, which would utterly alienate their indisputably racist base, or they’d have to settle for becoming a regional White Power party and hope that the Libertarian movement could attract enough suckers to form a coalition party.

Good luck with that.

Godless Republican Filth Kill Extended Unemployment Benefits… MERRY CHRISTMAS from the GOP… Even Scrooge is Aghast

00 Unknown  Artist. The Love of Money is the Root of All Evil. 26.06.13

******

00 The Republican said to God

******

00 Free Market Trickle Down Economics at Work. 15.05.13

******

00 Pope Francisco. 27.11.13

______________________________

Let’s keep this short. The godless Republican filth laid yet another sacrifice on the altar of their Great God and Saviour Mammon. A mere twelve days before Western Christmas, they voted to kill “extended” unemployment benefits. The USA has always had the most parsimonious unemployment benies in the developed world, but the “extension” merely brought it up to minimal world standards. However, the Republicans (and their running-dog lackey amen corner amongst the Evangelical sectarians) decided to give “the gift that keeps on giving” to the long-term unemployed this Christmas. If you vote for ANY Republican, you vote for evil… you vote for greed… you vote for Satan and his agenda.

Listen up, Orthodox people… that means that Victor Potapov, Paffhausen, Peter Lukianov, Alexander Webster, Rod Dreher, Patrick Reardon, and Terrence Mattingly (and all those like them) spat on the Lord Christ and laughed maniacally. The Church has a responsibility to protect the helpless, a duty that HH (and Pope Francisco) takes seriously. Any churchman who urges support of the Republican Party, either in public or in private, is an enemy of Our Lord… we must treat such accordingly. After all, it would’ve only cost 25 billion USD (822 billion Roubles. 26.5 billion CAD. 28 billion AUD. 18.2 billion Euros. 15.4 billion UK Pounds)… a sum easily-raised by closing corporate tax loopholes, cutting back on the DHS, and winding down wars in foreign parts. The Republicans told us what they stand for… the innocent must suffer so that the Affluent Effluent can party hearty without the slightest diminution from the present economic crisis. The GOP tells us by their actions that bombs are more important than people are. 

Yes, John Whiteford, having a link to Rush Limbaugh and Sarah Palin on your website DOES conflict with your obligations as Christ’s priest. It does take all kinds… and, sometimes, it’s sickening as all get-out. Mark down who supports the ravening Republican ghouls… expose them, oppose them… don’t try reasoning with them, for they wouldn’t listen to you or to me, for they refuse to listen to Our Lord Christ and His Saints (No man can serve two masters). Reflect on this… they’re cut from the same bolt of nasty cloth that Caiphas was, and do remember what he did. It’s too much of a muchness…

Oh, yes… the Republicans say, “MERRY CHRISTMAS… and to hell with you (if they are to die, they had better do it now, and decrease the surplus population)”…

Bah, humbug!

Think The Whole World Is Honouring Mandela? Not These American Conservatives

00 What Would Jesus Do. Terry Jones. Political Cartoon. 9.12
Let’s do what Christ would do… now, that’s RELIGION… and that’s a PLAN!

______________________________

On Tuesday, world leaders and public figures from across the globe gathered in Johannesburg to pay tribute to the late Nelson Mandela, South Africa’s first black president and revered anti-apartheid crusader. For what seemed like the first time in years, Democrats and Republicans united… in their tributes to Mandela. At the memorial service, the climate of respect for Madiba was so deep that US President Barack Obama even shook hands with Cuban President Raúl Castro Ruz. So, of course, Mandela’s death has inspired similar feelings among Americans themselves. Or, has it? Sadly, no. As conservative politicians like Newt Gingrich, Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio took to Facebook and Twitter to honour Mandela, some of their constituents did the opposite. Such posts were flooded with highly-rated comments calling Mandela a Communist, killer, and liar, accusing these same conservative politicians of getting into bed with the supposed secret Communist terrorist menace symbolised by the Nobel Peace Prize-winning Mandela.

Soon after Mandela’s death on Thursday night, Gingrich wrote a short, deeply felt tribute to Mandela, calling him “one of the greatest leaders of our lifetime” and “the father of an integrated democratic South Africa”. Alarmingly, Gingrich’s support for Mandela enraged many of his supporters. Many of their attacks on Gingrich and Mandela were racial:

  • He hated America, Newt. Quit pandering to the blacks”.
  • “Come on Newt. He was a communist and a murder similar to our currant [sic] president. Are you too being baffled by the main stream media”.

Backlash against Gingrich from his supporters was so great that the former Speaker of the House and Republican presidential candidate felt compelled to write an even longer separate post, praising Mandela, and asking his commenters what they would’ve done in his place. Gingrich even went on to discuss his horror at the comments on CNN, saying, “If you’d been imprisoned for 27 years, 18 of them in a cell eight foot by seven foot, how do you think you would’ve emerged? Would you have been angry? Would you have been bitter? Nelson Mandela emerged from 27 years in prison as an astonishingly wise, patient, and compassionate person… before you criticise him, ask yourself, what would you have done in his circumstances?”

Still, Gingrich’s most hardcore supporters refused to listen. One commenter… who clearly has no idea what apartheid entailed, or of what South Africa has become… wrote:

  • “[Mandela] didn’t turn S. Africa into a place of equality. He flipped the roles and has now made it racist toward all white people… So I am sorry Mr. Gingrich, but I will never honor a butchering communist”.
  • “Mandella and Fidel Castro were best friends. That’s all I need to know. That and Obama woshiped [sic] him. ’nuff said”.

Gingrich was far from the only Republican to suffer a major backlash over supporting Mandela. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) wrote, “Mandela will live in history as an inspiration for defenders of liberty around the globe”, and it wasn’t long before his supporters, too, let loose racially-charged, supposedly anti-Communist, nonsense:

  • “Why don’t all you Mandela lovers head on over to South Africa and see what’s going on now that ‘Mandela’s people’ have control of the nation. … Get out and go mix with the people, experience what life is really like. Especially if you’re white”.
  • “He was also a huge supporter of abortion! Don’t put him too high up! Careful Mr Cruz”
  • Another replied, using some of the most obvious racist code words: “It’s the one thing Mandela got right. Abortion among his supporters improves humanity as a whole”.

Even House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) received similar hate after praising Mandela’s “perseverance in fighting the apartheid system”. A concise poster wrote:

  • “glad he’s dead”.
  • “John, from your comments does it mean you support communism and the killing of white people?”

Editor’s Note:

The comments speak for themselves. It’s not for nothing that the GOP is the “Stupid Party”. Remember… it defends the greed of the unfettered Free Market. “The love of money is the root of all evil”… that says it all, and it says why NO Christian can support the godless agenda of the Republican Party. No… being anti-abortion doesn’t cancel out indiscriminate drone strikes, unlimited extrajudicial detention, the promiscuous use of capital punishment, coddling of the Affluent Effluent, and attacks against social programmes. It’s EVIL… that’s all that I can say. I oppose all who support such demonic rubbish… especially, the “clergy” who do so. I’ll see you on the other side of the barricades… now, that’s “’nuff said”.

Nevertheless, the Republicans who spoke well of Mandela DID stick out their necks, the contemporary GOP being what it’s become. I bow to them in that. Courage is courage, and, sometimes, your foe shows it. Acknowledge it or be found a pig. That’s that…

Boehner Refuses to Meet with Russian Delegation on Syria

00 USA Russia flags. Putin quote. 27.09.12

______________________________

Earlier this week, President Vladimir Putin backed plans to send a parliamentary delegation to the USA for talks with the US Congress regarding Syria. However John Boehner, the top Republican in the US House of Representatives, rejected an official request to meet the Russian delegation. The initiative by Russia came about as American lawmakers prepare to vote on US President Obama‘s call for military strikes in Syria. Michael Steel, Boehner’s spokesman, told AFP, “The Speaker has declined the Russian Embassy’s request that he meet with a delegation”. CNN quoted a spokesman for the Russian Embassy in Washington as saying the visit was still being planned, and that it would take place “next week”. The spokesman also told CNN that the delegation would include members of the RF Federal Assembly (from both the RF Gosduma and the RF Federation Council) and that they intended to speak with Republicans and Democrats in both the House and Senate. On Monday, Valentina Matviyenko, Chairman of the RF Federation Council, said that the delegation would try to arrive in the USA before 9 September.

Editor’s Note:

Why is Boehner carrying water for Obama? What deal has Obama made with him? Has Obama decided to knife working people in the back by allowing Boehner to kill the ACA? We’ll have to see… but this doesn’t augur well for the future. Note well that Boehner and Obama lie in the same bed together… let Rush Limbaugh expostulate, this means that the Right are just blowhard bastards. They all lie together (in more ways than one) at the end. The Righties are no different from those they criticise. What a world…
