Rubio: 9/11 Attacks are part of God's Plan for the Universe

http://www.rawstory.com/2015/12/marco-rubio-911-terror-attacks-were-part-of-gods-plan-for-the-universe/
snip:
Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio thinks the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and the recent massacre in Paris were part of God’s plan.

Speaking at a campaign rally last Monday in Iowa, the Florida senator said Christians should never be afraid because God was in control of the universe, the Christian Post reported.

I'm afraid this guy could launch a nuclear attack and say it was all part of the plan. We are still a year away from the election, how far can the crazy go?

The Reich Wing have Weaponized Hatred

http://www.salon.com/2015/12/01/wing_nuts_have_weaponized_hatred_how_the_conservative_echo_chamber_is_making_us_all_less_safe/
snip:
We’ve reached a tipping point in America’s political discourse. The shooting at a Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood facility is merely the latest in an increasingly alarming series of tragedies connected to political issues, each of which has been notably distorted by conservatives — or in the case of the Planned Parenthood shooting, almost completely ignored — throughout the past year and beyond. So far, attacks have occurred in relation to the following: immigration, Muslims inside the U.S., reproductive rights, LGBT equality and racial justice.

As far-right propaganda grows louder and increasingly divorced from objective reality, it seems as if incidents of violence have escalated accordingly. While there might not be a direct one-to-one correlation, it’s obvious to anyone paying attention that the GOP’s eliminationist rhetoric, intentionally or not, serves to inflame those who are already prone to radicalism and violence.

The Reich Wing echo chamber has finally let the repug crazies off the leash, and as a result, made the entire country a potential shooting gallery supporting their outright dangerous policies.

Cruz says Planned Parenthood Terrorist is a Transgender Leftist Activist

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/ted-cruz-planned-parenthood-shooter-transgender_565ba648e4b072e9d1c23a85
snip:
NEWTON, Iowa -- Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) downplayed the role anti-abortion rhetoric may have played in the fatal shooting of three people at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado and suggested the suspect was a “transgendered leftist activist" at a campaign stop in Iowa on Sunday.

Speaking with reporters following the event, Cruz rejected suggestions that the shooter was part of the anti-abortion movement, taking issue with the “vicious rhetoric on the left blaming those who are pro-life.”

Robert Lewis Dear, 57, was taken into custody Friday night after allegedly opening fire inside a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs, killing three and injuring nine others.

When a reporter reminded the Texas senator that the suspect allegedly made a comment about “baby parts” while being arrested, Cruz countered, “It’s also been reported that he was registered as an independent and a woman and transgendered leftist activist, if that’s what he is.”

Cruz is beyond loathsome and is just pure slime. He remains the most dangerous man in the GOP clown car.

Rethug Remarks Condemning Planned Parenthood Murderer

"crickets chirping"

Hope the DNC funds a Depends Ad

Please run a Depends Add showing the Presidential Rethug nominee bed wetters all wailing about how the refugees pose a clear and present danger to this country. Well-what do you expect from a bunch of chickenhawk cowards who wrap themselves in the flag in order to cover up their pissed soaked pants.

"ISIS hits and the right goes wobbly"

This editorial is from the extremely conservative newspaper The Arizona Republic. Even they are appalled by the Right's cowardice.

http://www.azcentral.com/story/opinion/editorial/2015/11/18/isis-paris-syria-refugees/75980774/
snip:
A terror army sends a strike force to Paris to drive a dagger into the heart of Western Europe and liberal democracy. It attacks restaurants, a theater, a bar and soccer stadium, killing 129 civilians and leaving a proud nation numb with grief.

And in America, the conservative party reacts how?

It rolls up its sleeves with cold resolve and vows to crush the Islamic State.

No.

It runs shrieking to the doors with padlocks to keep any bad guys away from us.

To misquote Churchill: we will not fight them on the beaches, we will not fight them in the streets, rather we will keep out the most vulnerable members of a war torn society. We shall completely surrender...our values.

Shades of the Election of 1980

Currently, there is not an incumbent President running for reelection. The economy is in a different state than 1980. However, I remember all too well President Carter's difficulties with the hostage situation in Iran and the military debacle of Desert One.

My concern is a terrorist strike in the United States, beyond the immense pain it will inflict, will lead to a political backlash against all Democrats and we get President Trump or Cruz.

Prior to 1980 I would not have predicted Raygun getting elected either.
