This is freakin’ unbelievable.

12 Oct

Rachel Maddow is one of the best investigative reporters around. Some may not like her politics but she is a master at what she does.

    Let’s not forget who runs the Value Voters Summit: The Family Research Council, led by geniuses like Tony Perkins and Jerry Boykin. Here’s some of the fun they’re having at their conference this week:

      It’s alarming that they actually believe this insanity. But you’ve got to admire their tenacity. A normal lunatic would have given up long ago. These uptight people don’t want to just repeal AHC, they want to repeal reality and replace it with a theocracy. Tony Perkins. Gag me. If you asked him “what’s your favorite color?” the answer would be “Jesus”. The pompousness, the sacrcharin piety, the moralizing to others with grand stokes. These guys are Jimmy Swagart with a high school diploma. Or college degree from Bob Jones, same thing.
      It will be interesting to see what happens with Cuccinelli and Lonegan, two magnificent Tea Party turds,each with an added dash of spiritual literalism.

    Mitch,
    Rachel’s report shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone who has followed BFV over the years. What we have in congress is a combination of birthers (amazona), racists (neo), religious nuts (noonan), and the mentally challenged (tired) that you find on BFV. The problem is, the guys elected to congress actually have power.

    Ah yes, but here’s the rub. Many of these deranged fanatical lunatics got elected through jerrymandering and as such are only representative of a small segment of the population. Concentrated enough for sure to get these morons elected but a minority none the less. This in part explains why the congresspeople believe the feedback loop they are trapped in when they say such things as “The American people are on my side”, blah blah blah. It emboldens them.
    But now it is glaringly obvious that there is an internecine war we have the pleasure of witnessing. The Teaturds have been blindsided, the establishment Republicans realize what damage they have done to both the party and the nation as a result of encouraging the admission of these throw-backs to another era and now are trying to figure out a way to save face. I think it’s to late though. They already have egg all over it.
    Not only have they failed to roll back AHC and the reality of modern society, they are still frustrated that they haven’t been able to roll back The New Deal and The Great Society.

    I wonder if these are the people that Cluster truly identifies with. Are these the people that represent him?

    Then there’s this article at National Memo:

    When Barack Obama was elected president in 2008, many pundits and political observers were eager to expunge the nation’s brutal and long-running history of stark racial oppression. They spoke of a “post-racial” society freed from the divisions of tribe, healed of the deep wounds that ached and bled along the color line for centuries.

    Even those who were less sanguine about the disappearance of racism — myself included — believed that the election of the nation’s first black president signaled a new era of greater racial harmony and understanding. Surely, a nation ready to be led by a black man was ready to let go many of its oldest and ugliest prejudices.

    But that was a very naive notion. It turns out that Obama’s election has, instead, provoked a new civil war, a last battle cry of secession by a group of voters who want no part of a country led by a black man, no place in a world they don’t rule, no home in a society where they are simply one more minority group. Call those folks “Tea Partiers.”

    The ultraconservatives who have taken over the Republican Party are motivated by many things — antipathy toward the federal government, conservative religious beliefs and a traditional Republican suspicion of taxes, among them. But the most powerful force animating their fight is a deep-seated racial antagonism.
