Sleepy Time Thought: The Crazed GOP Base: 4/23/2012
You know, in all the hoopla over the Republican primary, I JUST noticed there was this one little tidbit that was completely glossed over by most of the media. For months we’ve been told that the candidates are forced to tack hard right to please the base. They don’t really mean all the crazy shit they say, they’re just saying it because the base demands it. So, the pro-death penalty, pro-war, pro-gun, anti-women, anti-black, anti-immigrant, anti-gay, pro-theocracy, anti-science, anti-education, anti-poor, pro-corporation, pro-filthy rich, anti-middle class crap that the candidates have been spewing for months represents the base, the core, the very heart of the GOP?
Why is this not the center of the conversation? I don’t give two tugs of a dead dog’s tail about what Mitt Romney has to say to appear to be conservative. I want to discuss, loudly, why it’s acceptable for people to behave like this. This is the BASE of the GOP? Rabid animals that would just as soon shoot you for being black or Hispanic? Yeah, I said it: animals. If you cheer for the death penalty and civilian deaths in Iraq because “who cares about those sand niggers anyway?” you are a frakking animal and you should be locked in a cage until a cure is found for your kind of mindless hate.
We should be turning a spotlight on these people and make them hold themselves accountable. I want to force them to say, like I forced my father-in-law yesterday to say, that, yes, poor children should suffer for their parents’ mistakes. I want to hear them say, out loud, that the country was better off when the elderly lived in abject poverty and ate cat food to survive. If this is the Republican base then they should be proud to announce how little they care for their fellow human. We should drag these savages out into the open and let the moderate conservatives and Independents take a good look at who the GOP really represents. Then we’ll see how comfortable they are voting in November when they can’t pretend it’s just a little fringe group.
Sleep tight you filthy liberal scum!
