Why the Right Wing Can Suck It

I’ve generally tried to avoid outright political posts mostly because, well, truth be told, I have no patience to debate these issues.  Usually I just want to vent and please spare me the FoxNews talking points.

But like a pressure cooker, every now and then you gotta let out a bit of steam or else your kitchen will be a mess.

First of all, yes, I am grouping the entire right wing together.  Why?  Because I haven’t heard nearly enough moderates speak out against vile disgusting behavior by the right.  If you stand by silently while evil leaders in your party run amok, you are equally to blame. (Colin Powell, you get a pass. Carry on.)  

The right wing has run a campaign that, quite frankly, pinned its hope on assassination because it knew that it couldn’t win with legitimate votes.  It winked at audience members in GOP rallies who screamed “Kill Him” in reference to then candidate Barack Obama.  It introduced bills on the House floor that question the authenticity of now President Obama’s birth certificate.  It calls him a tyrant and a dictator when he won by a landslide.  It compares him to Hitler.   It all but signs permission slips for every crazy person to get out their arsenal of guns and kill till the world matches their sick version of utopia.

Then, when its rabid followers actually follow through on what they’ve been dared to do, what does this party of disgusting scum do?  They call the killer a liberal.  Uh uh.  You own this one.  Blood is on your hands and more will follow unless good people stand up and say, “No More.”

And these people pretend to be religious!  Well, their religion is certainly not christianity, but a religion of power, greed and hate.  And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why the right wing can suck it.

    Did you see Paul Krugman’s op-ed the other day? http://www.nytimes.com/2009/06/12/opinion/12krugman.html?_r=1

    I agree with most of your points, but I am also finding myself a little frustrated with the left these days. Here they are with all this political capital, and they are afraid to talk about gun control, gay marriage, etc. Grrr…
