Another Good Christian Value?

Wait, I thought they were against terrorism? 

Or is terrorism by white folk perfectly acceptable now?

Seriously, I can’t wait for this bill to pass and all these neanderthals to crawl back into their caves.  Are we there yet?

From alan.com.

I just read that top Republicans are trying to distance themselves from racist, homophobic, and otherwise hate-filled  “isolated” demonstration incidents.  Yeah, you’ve only had what, a year and a half to speak against this type of behavior?  They’ve done nothing but encourage misinformation and hate until now and if you check their websites and facebook pages, it’s nothing new – certainly nothing “planted” by the government as some are alleging (apparently they think everyone is as gullible as they).

 My opinion is that the *only* reason Republicans they are saying anything now is to cover their own asses in the not unlikely event that violence breaks out – and then they can say “well we tried to stop it – we had nothing to do with it.”  Try a little harder, wontcha?

    […] are attempting to distance themselves from the criminal activity.  As I mentioned, oh, only about four days ago – it’s really too little too late; they’ve been riled up for months and months […]

    WOW….I have been reading through some of your posts. You group all Republicans together….you seem to have such a hatred for us. I’ve never read a more depressing blog.
    The Liberals say that the Republicans aren’t open minded enough. Well….Pot, meet Kettle.

    Are you out there holding racist signs or threatening violence against people that don’t agree with you like so many on the extreme right? No? Then this isn’t about you, my fellow Texan.

    My point is that Republican leaders had months, years even, to lasso their party and bring it back down a notch, away from the extreme right, but they have instead encouraged this behavior – rallied the “base.” It’s not a judgment on moderate conservative individuals at all. In fact, I do not think the activity in this entry describes all or even most Republican individuals (as a matter of fact, I’m pretty sure these were tea partiers, not Republicans, though most tea partiers do agree with the Republican platform), but the violent and threatening activity we have seen lately is quite hateful and “Unchristian” you must agree.

    Elizabeth Hasslebeck, who I admittedly don’t have a great opinon of, thinks this type of behavior is “despicable.” It may be a first (and last), but I completely agree with her.
