We all know that science and conservatism are as comfortable as Darth Vader and Picard waking up next to each other, sweaty and bared, limbs intertwined and exhausted as their chests eminate a smell of manly musk and remorseful 3 a.m. Vegas whisky. As the image sinks into your mind, there is an equally shocking reality setting into the mind of the people who somehow supported Mitt Romney to the point that he closed in on 50% of America’s popular vote.
Before getting started on today’s story of how Texas politicians want a vote on seceding from the United States (yes, this is happening, but more later), let’s first set a starting point. Republicans, if you made it passed the Vader-Picard docking scenario, let us scare you even more.
Booga, booga, radical Republicans. The reason why many people did not want Obama to win is because he is black. Yes, there are people who do not like liberals, social provisions like universal healthcare or food stamps, but there is just a special sort of sassiness Republicans have had when criticizing our president for the last four years. How can Fox News go so long without saying one positive word about this man? Is he really a Kenyan-borne antichrist? A Marxist commie? Or is there something else going on here, something called good, old fashioned, pigheaded racism. The very type of attitude that keeps gays from getting married in every state and has people voting for a man who is buddy-buddy with Senators who think it is okay for women to be raped and forced to bear a child from such an event is the very same attutide that had people supporting Mitt Romney at any cost.
As one meme put it: please, Mitt Romney, be anything you want but just do not be black.
Republicans may try to vehemently deny there is a latent racism and hatred in the party, but their mouthpiece Bill O’Reilly really let the cat out of the bag with his entire post-Obama victory rant where he said ‘the white establishment’ of America is lost and that minorities are ruining everything and want free stuff. If this is the view of Republicans who make Bill O’Reilly the most watched news program on television, then no wonder a social roughneck like Romney could even make this election close.
As some Republicans continue to cope with the prospect of another four years under President Barack Obama, a Texas GOP official is floating a simple way out: cleaving his state from the union.
Peter Morrison, a Texas treasurer of the Republican Party, wants Texas to undergo an “amicable divorce” from the U.S., the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
“Why should Vermont and Texas live under the same government?” “Let each go her own way.”
Morrison, mirroring the thoughts of his colleagues, called people who voted for Obama ‘maggots’. He went on to target minorities who voted for Obama, saying they only voted for the president on an ‘ethnic basis’. Their vote must have had nothing to do with not wanting a white, pro-rape, pro-anti-feminist, pro-racist, pro-make the rich richer to trample on the ’47%’ yahoo who cut off the credit cards of his campaign workers the second his ink-wet concession speech was finished. Yes, minorities love being abused and taking the elected official by a group of Tea Party misfits on as their new president. What sort of Bizarro world is Mr. Morrison living in?Morrison went on to express anger at the “maggots” who backed Obama, specifically calling out non-white voters, whom he accused of voting for the president on an “ethnic basis.”
Bud the the Star-Telegram helps us see things get far worse in Texas.
A judge that could be mistaken for Yosemite Sam is darn tootin’ mad, long ago predicting Obama’s reelection would lead to a Civil War. The fact that any Fox News commentator would be so shocked there is division in this country with people making such doltish commentary on a regular basis, and getting put on news shows to say it, is almost humorous, if not so serious.
If Texas wants to secede from the Union, more power to them. Just be ready for the United States military to round up whoever is down there committing an act of treason against the union and liberating the state for the more sensible people. Texas, your president has a name: it is Barack Hussein Obama. Get over it. He’s a brilliant man with a beautiful family. He is actually doing good for this country. If your source of news cannot report one good story about him in four years, guess what? They should be found guilty of treason, just as guilty as any House Members who vow to screw over any efforts in restoring prosperity to the American people, just to spite Obama and make him look ineffective so they can run another Bush-esque candidate in 2016. And you should stop calling the channel ‘news’. It is ‘artificial fact’ and those artificial facts are corrupting your mind and view of reality. Yes, it’s tough being told that you are going crazy, but you are. Step back and look at how the right has been treating your president, then think about how you would feel if you heard actions and things being said against President George Washington, Abe Lincoln, John F. Kennedy, Ronald Reagan. You would not think it was patriotic or American, unless you were a pinko communist who would likely end up on a very official list of Senator George McCarthy.
And quite frankly, that is exactly where the current right wing policies, media and jack-legged politicians belong right now, in the same league as any spy or agent against America. If you are not with us, you are definitely against us. So what is it going to be?
