There are many of you who think the title of this post is nothing more than partisan hyperbole and up until a few years ago if I had read such a headline about the fringe of either party I would have been more than skeptical. Over the past fifteen years while America has elected two centrist Democrats, the GOP have moved more and more to the right to support the more motivated base of their party. This far right has manifested itself in the form of the TEA Party a faux grassroots organization bankrolled and brought to life by FreedomWorks and the Koch Brothers deep pockets. The TEA Party in the house has used terror in the form of lies and misinformation about ObamaCare not only to fan the fervor of their base but to terrorize more moderate Republicans into siding with them out of fear of being primaried in 2014.

Senator Ted Cruz likely has done more to damage America than any of the terror attacks that have taken place in the United States. Simply being against the President because he comes from another party is politically nothing new in America. But working on the bigotries and ignorance of the ill informed and using the willingness of wealthy political operators simply to raise money in the hope of being a major player in 2016 is a crime against the United States that i would equate with sedition. Cruz and his TEA Party brethren have done precisely what the tinfoil hat wearers, who said with neo-McCarthyite lust in their voices, the Muslim brotherhood had infiltrated the Obama administration. These gun loving, compassionless religious zealots have done just as the Washington Navy Yard shooter did; they simply walked into the building and opened fire on the American middle class murdering the dreams and aspirations of thousands of times more people than Al Qaeda has killed.

The gerrymandering of political districts to keep the wacko birds in their seats will not last forever. The TEA Party base like the GOP base is dying and is being replaced by young intelligent and Progressive people even in the Bible Belt. By 2024 Texas will go from purple to blue and that trend will continue moving east through the deep South both in state legislatures, the guys who decide the shapes of congressional districts, and in the US Congress. For right now there will be the same sort of uncertainty and suffering many had after September 11, 2001, but eventually there will be a return to normal as it is defined in the post Great recession Era. Until that time ask yourself a very basic question. What is it about the President and his landmark healthcare reform policy that you think is not going to work for the American people? Send me a comment and I’ll be able to offer you an idea if this is a right wing talking point or a legitimate problem that needs addressing. As of right now the ObamaCare exchanges have served over 8 million people looking for a way out of the broken medical insurance system.

WHAT THE OREGON TEA PARTY TERRORIST BIGOTRY BUS TELLS US ABOUT THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LOVE AND HATE

I’ve seen some really dumb things in my job here at The Dis Brimstone Daily Pitchfork in the past 15 years doing research and for a brief time serving as interim Editorial Page Editor. Nothing, and I do mean nothing compares to this:

Okay, put into its simplest terms anyone that would drive this thing around has some issues. There’s a lack of love in his or her life that can only be filled by fanatical religious belief. Lucky for this person they live in America where people just shake their heads or laugh rather than pulling the owner out and setting trailer on fire. That said I want to show you what love looks like as a counter point.

So conservative reader, how is your marriage suffering because these two people are in love and have committed to each other? It’s love despite what Mitt Romney says and it should be respected in marriage if they choose to commit to marriage. Ownership of the word marriage is the bunker where conservative bigotry is making its last stand against Freedom in America. Love is so clearly fundamental to everyone it seems other than fundamentalists and a few black preachers who are still scared of the gay.

The Culture Wars, as I have said many times really ended in 1920 when women got the right to vote. Now no matter how many qurans Terry Jones burns, or how many rallies for the TEA Party the Koch Brothers have or how many stern letters Catholic Bishops send to the White House they have all been exposed as frauds and the people have decided that America isn’t a faux Christian nation but a secular Liberal/Progressive nation that assures even the most vile and odious right wing religous nuts have the right to freedom of speech.

THE REAL DAMAGE OF OF TODD AKIN’S BELIEFS

[Journ.]

I’ve heard many times that politics is a very dangerous game. What you’ve got in America today isn’t really politics anymore it’s a bunch of kindergarten kids throwing their feces at each other and pointing. Americans need jobs and there are two sides who very likely have ideas of how to get corporations to get off their money and begin to hire people to do things but you won’t get to those solutions before election day because of issues that the Right feel are more important.

Abortion, sexuality and the struggle to get women out of the boardroom and back into the kitchen working to serve working men, these are legacy issues for the far Right and their enablers in powerful positions. Yes, I mean the Koch Brothers when I say powerful enablers and I clarify this because I don’t want anyone to think I misspoke. These people and those who share their beliefs are horrified that everyone else doesn’t see that they’ve got all the answers to a better life and a post life reward. Men like Todd Akin are appalled that their beliefs are things that have to be parsed and watered down as not to alienate those moderates and independents out there who get to vote.

Todd Akin is an educated man who got a degree in engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute and another in theology Covenant Theological Seminary in 1984 at the age of 37. This shows where this man’s thinking and loyalty lies. Akin is a man about processes and the solutions that can come from processes. He is also a man very devout about religion and devout about making his religion’s social norms prominent is American culture. Todd Akin is a well trained and well groomed officer for the Right in the culture war.

It would have been better for the GOP had Akin gotten out of the Missouri Senate race, but it wouldn’t change what I think is obvious but many in the MSM has missed. Todd Akin believes, because of his religous beliefs that life begins at conception– when egg meets sperm and the resulting new form divided and divides yet again. I am sure that Mr Akin understands how human beings procreate, however, he doesn’t know anything about being a woman anymore than I do. What’s missing is that Akin doesn’t have any compassion for people that goes beyond what his religious beliefs that color his stance on the issue of abortion–which simply put is a woman’s right to choose if she carries a fetus to term; he is simply tethered to the ground by the obsession of people like him to take America back to a time when the nation was more racially, sexually and socially more comfortable to them.

And by choosing not to excise this cancer from their body the group of people who are Republican are committing suicide politically. I feel that Akin’s views could have been betyter expressed by him had he said, “I do not support abortion under any circumstances save for a direct threat to the continued life and health of the mother.” Period. End of discussion. Next question. many sitting GOP members of Congress feel this way including Paul Ryan who is the Vice presidential choice of Mitt Romney. Had he said this we wouldn’t be talking about this today because that position is well known to be held by Akin, Ryan and dozens of others in the GOP and even some Democrats.

Abortion is an issue in this election cycle because it is the chief culture war issue for the GOP base. They can’t roll back the Civil Rights Act and despite their best efforts to control minority voting with new voter identification laws in several states, they can’t do away with the Voting Rights Act. Conservatives are doubling down yet again in their GOP party platform by echoing Todd Akin’s beliefs which are Paul Ryan’s beliefs that abortion in the case of rape or incest should not be legal. All eye rolling aside this is the dying gasp issue for the far Right in 2012. The Right knows that this might be the last hurrah for them and their ageing base. In the next 20 years the numbers of pro-life young people with deep motivations to organize like Gingi Edmonds for example will be in decline while the numbers of Latino and black teens who will be voting for the first time in 2032 will outnumber conservatives by a factor of 16 to 1. So the goal today with less than 80 days to go to the election is to win and gain control of the Congress and the White House and attempt to rewrite the laws to take America back to that place that is socially comfortable for conservatives once again.

I’m a betting man. Back a few months ago I saw clearly that Mitt Romney because of the economic sluggishness in the US would likely win the presidential election. All the indicators were there and to me it seemed President Obama would not be able to get to 270 electoral votes no matter how I sliced and diced the numbers. In politics all you have to do is wait a while as I did in 2006 when I found myself writing a similar column about George Allen who was running for Senate and made the infamous “macaca” comment on a warm August afternoon. That gaffe six years ago almost to the day was the first of several shoes that dropped which showed the harshness and intolerance of conservatives to an electorate that was sick and tired of the war in Iraq. Now as the 2,000th life has been lost in the war in Afghanistan, the GOP has a full blown abortion obsessed rogue on it’s hands in Missouri that will cost them not only the Senate, the White House and possibly the House, but also will cost the Grand Old Party its very future existence. You hear it here first folks, the GOP will not exist as a national party in 20 years.

VICTORIA JACKSON PROVES THAT IGNORANCE IS BLISS

Posted in 2012 US ELECTION, AMERICAN EXCEPTIONALISM, CAVALOR EPTHITH EDITORIALS, COMEDY, CONSERVATIVE IGNORANCE, FEARSPEAK, GOP MELTDOWN, POLITICS, PRESIDENT OBAMA, RACE AND POLITICS IN AMERICA, TEA PARTY, THE ULSTERMAN REPORT, WHITE HOUSE DOSSIER, WHITE PRIVILEGE with tags , , , on 31/12/2011 by Cavalor Epthith, Esquire, D.S.V.J

I didn’t know who Victoria Jackson was until I called Diane Valencen into my office yesterday and asked her. I had seen the clips of her vlog where she states the Muslim brotherhood is taking America toward Sharia law. The only reply I can come up with is “Bullshit.” Ms Jackson has swallowed, among other things, the John Birch Society party line which has to have a foreign or other as an enemy to make any sense at all. I would have preferred that this comedienne stuck to skits that would not poison the minds of people who need to have their deepest fears reinforced with any lie that suits them.

No matter who she had a six-hour seminar with the wealthy and powerful in America will not allow their wealth and power to be threatened by any religion from the outside. The USA is a nation of nearly 320 million souls; there are just under 2.7 million Muslims. That is a small minority that the Constitution of your nation says has the right to worship as they please. It is more likely that as America’s conservatives become more and more fascist that if they do ever come to power they will send them all either back to their home countries or they will intern them as the japanese were during the Second World War.

When a person like Victoria Jackson accuses the sitting President of being in league with those who want white Americans killed because of their religion she does ignorance a disservice by defecting to the land of the stupid. If she wanted to look at the real threats to American freedom she should look no further than the Koch Brothers, screed sheets like the Ulsterman Report and the White House Dossier or better just pitch a tent in a trailer park in the Midwest where there are plenty of empty minds to “occupy.”
