...I smell a ton of ignorant bitches!!!
Oh how things have changed. Just a year ago many Republicans joined Democrats in reacting with horror to the Capitol insurrection, denouncing both the violence perpetrated by the rioters and the role the ex-buffoon in chief played. But on a day of solemn remembrance and to honor and take a moment of silence for those who saved lives like the Captial police officers, Capitol security, and DC police force, and lives lost, elected Republicans stayed away. Which speaks volumes to me, of just how sore loser, selfish and uncaring they really are. The truest of colors has never been seen so bluntly shown. If I was one of the policemen or security there working protecting their cowardly asses, I would so walk off the job and tell them they are on their own. In the past, years ago, I was a Republican, and if I still was after seeing that statement, not one would get my vote. Take note of said ignorant bitches. I refuse to type out the names of useless people taking up chairs and air. This country is in trouble if every damn thing is going to be political. If you can't even show up to pay tribute and your thanks and gratefulness for the people who saved your life and take back the building you work in, what a bunch of selfish, unappreciative, and self-entitled bastards. They get anything coming to them and more. if I were a R still, it would be a cold day in hell they would get my vote again.
YOU HAVE MY VOTE!ReplyDelete
They are mustering their forces and have been since Putin put the bastard in office. The next election is going to be a horrorshow like we haven't seen since Selma in the 1960's when conservative hypocrisy was stripped bare before the judgement of the rest of the world and people bled and died in the streets. All people of conscience need to mobilize and fight this next gathering wave of hatred. Speak out, act out, make your views loud and proud! No more apathy! Voices need to speak loud and strong! BRING BACK SAMUEL L. JACKSON!!! BRING BACK BARACK AND MICHELLE!!!!
..not like I have an opinion. Ahem.
Nice post, and I have never commented before. But agree. A vote for a Republican is a vote for America's enemy. Let's be honest, folks, this is not the same republican party we once knew. Kudos to Liz Cheney and her father for having their own minds and the balls to follow their heart and do the right thing. There is nothing more dangerous to this country than a member of the GOP. Bar none. And that's a fact.ReplyDelete
And this is coming from a Republican, who tomorrow, is switching parties.
Just when you think there's nowhere lower they can go, they find someplace lower. I can't even believe the US. I feel so embarrassed for the US. I can't believe it's the country I left anymore and no offense, have no desire to return.ReplyDelete
It didn't shock me in the slightest and wouldn't want them their anyhow.ReplyDelete
Republicans have ceded their power to a whiny, bronze looking, overweight liar, a crazy Q lady, a evil gimp in a wheelchair, and a pervert who has been told by his multiple lawyers to shut up.
It makes one wonder how they can even think their insolence will reward them in '22. Clear thinking governing will prevail, something they don't even have a notion of what that means. Rather appaullling of them.ReplyDelete
Here's how they think their insolence will reward them in 2022, if Dems don't get out....Delete
1. Their base is pulled from mostly the lower 1/4 of the intelligence pool of America. Clear thinking isn't their forte. Emotion, manufactured outrage, conspiracy theory and a weird interpretation of the Bible drive them. Right-wing propaganda media makes no attempt at honesty or veracity. There are some intelligent people still left in the party, but they are mostly the Uber-wealthy and don't care about anything except the tax cuts.
2. Gerrymandering, voter suppression and the new voting laws allow Republican controlled state legislatures to overturn votes if it doesn't go their way.
3.Planned voter intimidation by right-wing nationalists' groups (Proud Boys, 3%'ers, et al) at the polls.
4. If all else fails call a legal election a "steal" and rile up the base to violence. Of course, any election they lose from here on will be declared "stolen"
5. Support from global dictators in the form of propaganda and an army of online trolls spreading disinformation.
2020/2021 was a dress rehearsal. If Dems relax now...kiss it all goodbye. Luckily people are still leaving the party and then there are all the covid idiots dying off shrinking a party already in trouble, so it will reach a point of only winning the crooked way.
You nailed that!!!! I just hope the Dems haven't got too comfortable.Delete
Exactly, Asriel. This is their plan. They no longer hide in back rooms or whisper in hallways: They are stating it all out loud. They are that confident in their ability to not reelect their Orange Deity...but to reinstate him.Delete
Republicans are issued shovels I believe when they join the party so they can always go dig lower. The next time there is another life threating situation at the Capital, the officers and security should just walk out, and tell them, Peace.ReplyDelete
Shame on all of them.ReplyDelete
For a party who says life is precious and can tell a woman what to do with a unborn baby, YOU'D THINK they would be there celebrating there even still here. Worthless bunch.
The craven Republican Party has spoken: We don't care. Voters take note.ReplyDelete
Of course republicans are not there mistress, “when the light is on, roaches hide”.ReplyDelete
One observation, if the incidents of 1/6/21 weren't that bad, why did not ONE member of the GOP remain on the House and Senate floor, and fight back, instead of running from the room under cover and security of the Capitol Police!?!? Ungrateful fuckers.ReplyDelete
A rather national embarrassment.ReplyDelete
The GOP Is playing a game of chicken and trying to gaslight. Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain. Covid is leveling the playing field as we speak......
And the PERFECT photo illustration for the post!ReplyDelete
From the outside looking in, I do think it is entirely possible, with all the vote-rigging etc. going on, I do think democracy in America could be lost during Trumpelstiltskin's second reign which will last for a lot longer than his first. The Dems need to put on their running spikes and get walking all over them Repugnant bastards (please excuse my French or one could say les Répugnant salauds)ReplyDelete
Way to go! Farm animals have been known to run back into a burning barn after they have been pulled to safety, and that is exactly what's happening to the Republican Party. They don't understand you can't be on the bridge when you decide to burn it.ReplyDelete
Anger or tears, or both are the appropriate reactionReplyDelete
There is no bottom with these treasonous fucks. We need to publicly shame them at every opportunity.ReplyDelete
They are a useless bag of trash. Unfortunately the repuglican states are gerrymandering and codifying election laws that make it easy for them to “correct” the legal results of an election. This is horrifying. Gawd help us all.ReplyDelete
Off-topic, Huntley...is Six okay????Delete
Pat...I think Sixpense said on his blog he was going off the grid for a bit.Delete
Yes he’s enjoying a break.Delete
They didn't want to return to the scene of the crime is my guess. How they can look their own voters in the face after that is beyond me. Maybe you do things different over there.ReplyDelete
Of course Republicans don’t want to show their faces. They aided and abetted an ATTACK ON AMERICAN DEMOCRACY….!!! They are all cowards. These traitors need to be dealt with severely and soon.ReplyDelete
Both parties drive me nuts, but at least the Dems get it. The current iteration of the Republican Party has completely gone off the rails. The country actually NEEDS at least one political party in opposition to the Democratic Party in order for the government to function as envisioned in a truly bipartisan, unified manner. Unfortunately, the GOP has sold out their principles and given up their Constitutionally-derived authority by pledging fealty to a former leader of the Executive Branch - rather than maintaining a dynamic tension between branches. Very said they are so power hungry.ReplyDelete
This is one more example of what has become of the Republican Party.ReplyDelete
It's a disgusting display of fealty to their Orange Deity. This is how historians have explained the fall from democracy into authoritarianism. Exactly this type of behavior through horrific events. This is "willful ignorance" in an effort to be the chosen ones to remain in power once the democratic republic has fallen. It is now what they are all striving to accomplish. As was explained on CNN(?) last night, they no longer expect to re-elect him they expect to **re-instate** him. With the range of laws being put into place throughout the country, democracy is hanging by a thin thread, and the midterms will not matter. If McConnell and the Senate Rethugs allow this to happen, the country is fucked.ReplyDelete
I try to be optimistic...but I have a very bad feeling. And find it hard and harder to stay positive.Delete
I try to find the positive things that are happening. Garland provided a teensy ray of hope in his speech. But, damn! it is hard to focus on them when so much bad (evil?) is being done.Delete
It was a shocking and shameful absence.ReplyDelete
You said it!ReplyDelete
The GOP and the Big Lie supporters and the 'just another day in January' asshats can fuck all the way off.ReplyDelete
I thought Bide did quite well. And I was shocked by Lindsey Graham's assessment of the memorial. People died. People were injured. She's got to go... Kizzes.ReplyDelete
The Republican party has majorly change. But there hard core red state, like Idaho. When I vote I try to get in the most left leaning Republican they can.ReplyDelete
I use to consider my self an independent voter. Now I consider my self and antifa voter.
Hopefully in next little bit I can do post on a nut case who running for Gov't, Janice McGeachin.
Coffee is on and stay safe
Absolutely appalling behaviour on the part of "Republicans". They are Nazis in everything but name only!ReplyDelete
That Party doesn't exist anymore, it has devolved into a Cult and no good has ever come out of Cult Worship and Fanaticism/Extremist radicalization. The Elite that hijacked that Party and now kiss the Ring of the Lunatic they bow down to have no bottom, they Sold their Souls and only Money and Power matter to any of them... those who aren't RINO's left or been forcibly run off. No, it didn't surprise me at all... it was always an inside job.ReplyDelete
